Clustering Tutorial Featuring Grand Bazaar by BasicGrey

My latest layout for BasicGrey features a downloadable instruction sheet stepping out the process to recreate this layout. 

I love the neon pink background in this page, and it teams perfectly with the gorgeous bright and happy colours of Grand Bazaar

Did you know, BasicGrey has it's very own range of stamps and stencils. Oh my goodness!

I've used one of the new Hero Arts/BasicGrey stencils, Second City Triangle Pattern stencil, to create further texture in my background using it as a stamp. LOVE these new stencils!

The BasicGrey blog has been experiencing some difficulties recently however You can find my downloadable instruction sheet here. and hopefully we will be back to normal very soon.

Thank you for calling in today, enjoy your freebie!

Today I want to share my latest layout created for Sketchbook 365 using this months brand new sketch.

Seems I have been in a pink mood lately, a lot of the things I've been doing have pink featured in them heavily, and this layout has loads of it! I've also punched a few random small circles from my background cardstock and I'm loving the effect! 

Thanks for calling in today, you can find more of the Design Team samples for this months sketch over on the Scrap365 blog here - it's well worth the visit! 

Hope to see your entry this month!

What On Earth Is Going On With Me?

My blog has been super quiet, I know it. And I have been slowly but steadily freeing up my time lately having stepped away from a few of my very much loved Creative Team commitments. Why would I do this? Well, there is a good reason. You see, I have a couple of BIG things about to happen. This is all very shhh shhh for now, but I -might- leave you with a bit of a teaser today. Things are happening, and I've been working frantically behind the scenes to bring this all to fruition. 

I just can't wait to be able to share it all!

Much love xx

A Sad Farewell

May last project for The Scrapbook Store this month features papers and embellishments from the gorgeously vintage FabScraps collection, Oh! Sew Beautiful. Absolutely perfect for vintage sewing/tailor themed pages - I just love the button patterned paper in this. 

I've added two chipboard pieces - the scissors set which can be found here and that sweet old vintage sewing machine. I've given both these pieces a coat of gesso then added a touch of colour to coordinate with the rest of my design using Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Tattered Rose.

This is my very last project for The Scrapbook Store. I've been on this wonderful team for two years now, but sadly the time to leave has come. Suzanne and Marelize have been such an inspiration and I will dearly miss being part of TSS.

But with every ending comes a new beginning. I have some great news to share soon, lots has been happening behind the scenes and I'm looking forward to exploring and sharing my new adventures. 

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Spring has arrived in my part of the world and the weather is amazing and I have lots to be thankful for :)
