The Color Room Palette #160

Hi everybody! I hope you are all having a blessed day. The sun is shining here on the sunny Central Coast of NSW Australia and after the mini heat wave yesterday, it’s a perfect Spring day today.

Here is my take on the palette titled Fun Moments…

I have lots of closeup shots for you of course. Checkout the background detail. I have used a Crafter’s Workshop 6×6 mask in each corner and then doodled and watercoloured some of the circles. Doesn’t it look fun?

The papers are all random from my stash and include brands like My Minds Eye, BoBunny, Websters Pages, Pink Paislee, Fancy Pants & Authentique. I have also fussy cut the butterflies from an old piece of Kaisercraft Specialty Patterned Paper. How fun is the glitter on the butterflies!

The kite sticker is from an old Echo Park collection and the Chalk frame is from the new My Minds Eye Chalk Studio Collection. I just love the contrast of the black on the frame as well as on the Heidi Swapp Acetate Banner.

I have cut up a Flourish with a Bling Jasmine Puff Flourish and added it randomly plus I have added some flair from Lil Somethin & Fancy Pants.

The watercolour on the background circles was actually created using Faber Castell Bubblegum Pink Gelato. The fabulous title is from the Pink Paislee Artisan Elements Words which are so fun to play with!

Berry71Bleu June Challenge

Are you here for my June/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course :)

Hi everyone can you believe I squeezed in another last minute challenge entry for June? Yep the Berry71Bleu Challenge for June was Summer Theme and I had these fabulous photos of my girls rolling down the grassy hill at Terrigal that were dying to be scrapped.

I was lucky enough to purchase the June A Piece of Cake Designs Kit and additional kit which I have used for this layout.

I decided to challenge myself to go back to an older technique that I haven’t used in a while. Tearing. I decided I wanted to tear everything and I have torn the papers, photos and elements which were parts of patterned papers that were included.

I also thought the black background was such a fun contrast and I cannot remember the last time I used a black background.

I am so happy with how this layout turned out for such minimal effort. All the wooden veneer Basic Grey Hipster pieces were coloured using the Crayola Watercolor Paints that came in the kit and I have added lots of random stitching the layout to finish it off alongside some fabulous star sequins that came in the kit also.

Thanks for looking and don’t forget to leave me some love so I can come visit you too.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

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!
