I have misted my background using a Crafters Workshop Stencil and some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Teal. I then dripped some of the color shine as well.

Baby Shower Invitations

Are you here for my Jun/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course 🙂

Hi everyone! I am back to quickly share some invitations that I just made this week for a fabulous lady at church who is expecting her 3rd bubba. With moving etc I thought I wouldn’t get these done in time but alas, I started Thursday night and got them finished yesterday thanks to my beautiful friend Nicole who was here for lunch yesterday and helped me sew the buttons together.

To create these invitations, I have used my Silhouette Cameo to print the details on the inside then to cut the duck shape out. The duck shape came with the beak as a seperate cutout but I decided that I wanted to use it as a wing instead and you can hardly tell it was meant to be a beak right? LOL love improvising as I go.

out for publication - Page 001

The cute eyes are some fabulous Flourish with a Bling Pearls in Chocolate and the patterned paper I have used is from Simple Stories Baby Steps Collection. I chose these papers because they are super cute and fun but also because they are gender neutral. Although there is pink and blues it is very subtle and the gender of this particular baby is not yet known.

The final touches on the ducks was to add some inking around the edges using Ranger Coffee Coloured Archival Ink and then some buttons and twine and voila! 30 gorgeous little ducky Baby Shower Invitations ready to be handed out.

Aren’t they just too cute? I already have another order for Giraffe Baby Shower Invites so keep an eye out for those.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

The Color Room Palette #152

Hi everyone! I am back today to share the latest Color Room Palette which is absolutely amazing! Seriously loving this palette of colours and want to play over and over again with this one.. Check out the Color Room website here and the Facebook Page here to join in the fun and get in with a chance to win some fabulous prizes!

152

Here is my take on this amazing palette. I was planning on using the fabulous sketch as inspiration also but alas I got carried away in my own creativity.

The background White Cardstock has been decorated using some PanPastels and Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Mists.

Next step was to add a doily and my photos. I have distressed the edges of my photos using a nail file and added a super cute Studio Calico Paper Clip, some Washi Tape, Heidi Swapp Buzz Word and an awesome Prima Shabby Resin Frame. I have added some colour to the frame using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I then went to town adding some flowers. Yes I usually go overboard but is there such thing as too many flowers? LOL I have also added some yummy Flourish with a Bling flourish pieces around the cluster and to the left, there is some lace and Heidi Swapp Banners poking out from underneath.

I then decided to add some Washi Tape, Pink Paislee Artisan Element Circl and a Prima clock to the bottom corner. The Pink Paislee Artisan Element was distressed with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Some added journalling, Prima Baubles, Studio Calico Stars & Sequins and my layout was complete. I added some colour to the Wood Veneer stars using some more Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Well that is it from me today, I am moving house today YAY so I will be quiet for a few days but don’t forget to check back next week for the announcement of my giveaway and maybe a new giveaway announcement 🙂

Until next time, happy scrapping!
