Hi everyone! I hope you are all well, as I busily try to catch up on my Design Team Commitments after the chaos of moving house, I decided to have a quick play with the Scrapbooking From Scratch Quote Challenge this for June hosted by Charmane from Charms Creations.

The Quote is “The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them”

I decided to use the fabulous Modern Romance Line Papers from Websters Pages and I have used the Clean and Simple sides for my backgrounds and then have fussy cut lots of fabulous flowers to use in my clusters.

In the bottom left corner, I have added some fussy cut flowers alongside a Charms Creation Lollipop, Prima Marketing Ingvild Blome Light Bulb and a fabulous Heidi Swapp Buzz Word.

I have used some American Crafts Thickers alongside some Prima Marketing ABC Stickers for creating my title.

The Background has some subtle masking using Texture Acrylic Paint and the Brocade 12×12 Crafters Workshop Template. I applied the paint with a natural sponge to get an interesting effect.

A Prima Marketing Resin Window, some Prima flowers alongside some Pink Paislee Artisan Elements and the layout was complete.

Overall I would have to say I am not a fan of this layout LOL. I am my own worst critic I know but I went way off track with my original plan and the page suffered.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog and don’t forget to leave me some love .

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!

Hi everyone! I am back to share a quick layout with you all today featuring a pic of my fabulous husband Joel.

To create this layout, I have used various Heidi Swapp papers from both the Sugar Chic collection and the No Limits Collection. I just adore Heidi’s ranges and I was so happy to be able to use some of the super girly range Sugar Chic in a more masculine way.

out for publication - Page 001

Now I never pretend to be very good at male themed layouts but I think I have done my hubby justice here with lots of manly features alongside bright colours and a ray of sunshine feel. To decorate the background, I have used the Harlequin Crafters Workshop Stencil with a mixture Teal Bombay India Ink and some Texture Paste. I also used the negative from 2 A2Z Scraplets cogs packs to add some cog shapes around the border and before they had a chance to dry, I have quickly sprinkled some Silver Micro Beads to add some metallic effect to the cogs. I still wasn’t 100% happy with the cogs so I have gone and coloured some A2Z Scraplets Cog Chipboard pieces using some Dylusions Ink Sprays and Perfect Pearls Mists. Gotta add some sparkle in there hehehe.

I wanted to add this fabulous A2Z Scraplets Starburst to the layout as well and decided I would layer it with lots of fun papers. I simply sprayed it with some Yellow Perfect Pearls Mist and allowed to dry before I stuck everything down and slotted the starburst in between layers.

Lots of final touches included some Heidi Swapp Buzz Words, Charms Creations Super Star along with some doodling and journalling. I also decided to add some washi tape and Heidi Swapp Phrase Stickers as well. Doesn’t it look fab? How awesome are Heidi’s product? She is definately an idol of mine. 🙂
