Everyday






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 :)

A Wedding Layout - 7 Gypsies Harmony Collection







There's a brand new sketch open at Sketchbook 365 and this month we are featuring papers and embellishments from some of beautiful 7 Gypsies collections.




I've been working with Harmony, a neutral coloured set of papers and ephemera which work really well with the wedding theme I have used here, but it would work equally as well on a masculine layout, heritage, family or memorabilia page.




I've used a layered style, adding foam dots between my layers and adding some distress for a worn and well loved look.




There is another great prize up for grabs this month - a collection of 7 Gypsies goodies - hope to see your entry again.




Thanks for dropping by,

Sweet Love - Now Is The Time To Shine







Today I want to share my second layout created for The Scrapbook Store this month featuring the new My Mind's Eye collection, Just Sayin'.



I've really love the pops of shiny gold glitter here and there which look totally fabulous - the photograph really doesn't show off how beautiful this is but it makes such an impact. I'm also really loving the acetate overlays in the bottom left corner and to the right of the design forming part of the layout title. Such a fun look.



Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
