I have masked my background paper using the Prima Marketing Static 12×12 Stencil and some Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence White. I cannot believe that I have never tried this before cause it looks so cool using the crackle paint eeekk a new favourite technique perhaps…

Most of the fabulous elements used for this page were from the September Cést Magnifique Kit including the fabulous Melissa France Vellum Envelope & Tag that is snuck behind the little birdie doily here…

as well as the fabulous Prima Marketing Say it in Pearls & Crystals Bling Circles. Aren’t they super cute? The flowers vary from Manor House Creations, Kaisercraft, Prima Marketing and Petaloo and the gorgeous double layered buttterflies are also from Petaloo and were also included in the kit.

The chipboard chicken wire is from A2Z Scraplets and has had a very rough coat of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence White. I just love adding these chicken wire/hexagon shapes behind details on my layouts and the best part is that I have used it so much on this layout yet I have only used 1 piece of chipboard so it is sooo worth the $2.50 price tag! Click here to visit the A2Z Scraplets website and order yours today, I usually order in quantities of 10 cause well I love it and use it often LOL.

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.

Today I am back to share a quick layout with you all created for the new the Color Room challenge that has just been posted today. Remember you now have 2 WEEKS to get your TCR entries in which is super exciting! Checkout the Color Room website here or the Facebook page here to checkout this fortnight’s palette and enter for your chance to win some fabulous prizes from our sponsors!

Here is the palette. A fabulous bright palette for #160

160

Here is my take on the palette titled Fun Moments…

IMG_4062

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?

IMG_4063

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!

IMG_4064

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.

IMG_4065

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.

IMG_4066

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!

Products used for this layout include…
White Bazzil Double Thick Cardstock
Random Patterned Papers from Websters Pages, Kaisercraft, BoBunny, Pink Paislee, My Minds Eye, Authentique & Fancy Pants
Crafters Workshop Circle Explosion 6×6 Template

The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them

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

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”

tn_IMG_3236

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.

tn_IMG_3237

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.

tn_IMG_3238

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

tn_IMG_3239

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.

tn_IMG_3240

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!
