Lovely Layout + Video

Image
Hello again all!
I'm back today to share another layout I created with the new St Tropez collection by Prima that I received from Anna's Craft Cupboard this month.
My layout is of my two children and I on a recent day out to the beach, which is still possible in Qld in winter :)


I have started with some splashing on my background. I have then added distressed pieces of the 12 x 12 papers, along with pieces of the '3 x 4 Journalling Cards'.


I have then used some of the die cut and acetate pieces from the 'Ephemera Pack' to layer upon my layout.


I have also the 'lovely' acetate piece from the 'Ephemera Pack'  as my title.


I have then used some of the 'Meredith' and 'Isla Marina' flowers layered among my embellishments. To finish I have then used some of the 'Jillibean Soup Sequins Blue'.
I have also created a process video so that you can see exactly how it all came together.
You can watch it HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! U…

Forever Layout for 7 Dots Studio

Image
Hello again all!
I'm here today to share a layout that I have created for
7 Dots Studio
Just a few days ago my husband and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary! So in honour of the occasion I have created a layout featuring him.
'Forever'

The Hazy Days collection is perfect for my theme as it has a grungy, film like feel to it. Ideal for a layout about a special man.
I have used Hazy Days Oil Spill 12 x 12 as my base and have then used the  'Alphabet Stencil' and the Hazy Days Chevron Stencil with a mixture of inks and modelling paste to add dimensions and texture to my page.

I have also used the Hazy Days Clear Stamps in brown and blue to add some extra colour.

I have used pieces of the Hazy Days Pad 6 x 6 and some of the 'Hazy Days Die Cut Elements, which I have distressed and layered with the Hazy Days Tags 12 x 12.

Then I have added some Hazy Days Word Stickers, Hazy Days Element Stickers and 'Die Cut Elements'

That 'forever' title is f…

Ocean Plaque

Hello again!
I'm back today to share an OTP wall plaque that I have created using  Prima St Tropez collection from Anna's Craft Cupboard.
Something a bit different for me, not being a layout :)


I have finished the plaque in black gesso and I have then used  Prima's Opal Magic Wax in Turquoise Satin over the top.  It makes the black into a metallic shimmery finish
I have then used pieces from the 12 x 12 papers, along with some of the '3 x 4 Journalling Cards' all of which have had their edges distressed. I have added some shells from the beach, as I love collecting shells!


There are gorgeous ocean tones of blue in this collection. I have used pieces of the 'Ephemera Pack' to pull it all together. There are some acetate pieces, some blue foiled accents, die cut floral pieces and generally all sorts of Prima goodness!
I have also used a piece of the 'Parisian Border' from 2Crafty Chipboard, finished in  Prima's Rose Gold Metallique Wax.

Follow Your Dreams - 7 Dots Studio Video Tutorial

Image
Hello all!!
It's my turn to share again up on the 
7 Dots Studio Blog
For this layout I have used the  Dreamscapes Collection which worked perfectly with the inspiration to this layout,  which was to try and teach my daughter to follow her heart.  That she is able to dream, hope and imagine all that life has to offer. 
So, here is 'Follow your Dreams'

For this layout I have used Dreamscapes Cloudy 12 x 12 paper as my base.

I have then gotten splatter happy with my mists, and some stamping with the  Dreamscapes Geometry Stencil.

I have then used pieces of the Dreamscapes 9mm 12 x 12 paper and pieces from the  Dreamscapes 6 x 6 Paper Pad, that I have distressed to make up my layers.

I have also used Dreamscapes Tags 12 x 12 and  some of the Dreamscapes DieCut Elements 6 x 12 added to my layers.

And some of the 'Word Stickers 6 x 12'

That gorgeous piece of chipboard is from 2Crafty Chipboard

Hello everybody!!
I am here today to share a layout with you that I have created with Prima's new collection St Tropez, that I have received this month from the awesome 
Anna's Craft Cupboard
Oh my this collection is gorgeous, full of sea and beach themed elements. My layout today is a picture of hubby and I at the beach so it fits perfectly with this collection.


I love that yellow and blue striped paper, it's gorgeous!! I have used a bit of it on this layout. I have also used some of the  '3 x 4 Journalling Notecards' among my layers. I have inked all my edges to make them stand out more.


Added to that are beautiful rose gold accents on the papers. I have also used some of the acetate and die cut pieces from the 'Ephemera Pack'.


Of course being a Prima collection there are flowers.... all kinds of flowers. I have used the 'Meredith' flowers which are larger velvet flowers with a gold beaded centre. I have also used some of the 'Isla Marina'…

Hello again all!
