Good Times Sailing

 Hello and thanks for dropping by today

Today l have a quick easy layout using pieces from the lovely 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Serenity collection. The colours in this collection are so soft and adaptable to many types of photos.

Once again l have used my January Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. Everything on this layout is from the kit, they even included the stencil and the crystal dimensional drops in gold ( the ink l used was mine)


I started with some stencilling on my background paper, layered up several photo mats that l distressed the edges of and added dimemsion to all the layers.

I've used a lace strip under my photo and added gold dots to the cut out holes

Next l began on my photo clusters on either side of the photo using laser cuts and chipboard pieces and have added height between the layering

I layered a chipboard tag and added a word strip over part of the lace strip

I've added rub-on words to the top of my photo for my title and finished with white splatters over the layout

Well that's all from me, have a great day!

Double the Fun

 Hi everyone, l have 2 layouts to share with you today

For the first one l have used 49 and Market Artoptions Viken collection

These collections have eveything you need to make several layouts with coordinating embellishments, l really can't get enough of them!

I have layered everything from the photo mats to the embellishments to give dimension and make the layout pop

Here are some close ups

On the bottom right and left hand side of my photo I began the flower cluster with die cuts and began to layer them finishing with flowers. I have painted and glazed some chipboard in a light green and tucked it in between the elements. I placed a word strip on the top and added sequins, seed beads and snow

For the second layout l have used 49 and Market Serenity collection. I am so happy with the way this layout turned out!

For this layout l started by giving the background paper a layer of clear gesso. Then l added a script stencil and ink over the top. 

I added several layers under my photo and inked all the edges.

I have 3 chipboard circles that l painted and lightly spritzed with ink and placed under my flower cluster and photo edge. The chipboard is from 2Crafty and they have an awesome range to choose from!

On the right side l used 3 word chipboard strips under the lace and added a heart.

Next was the flower cluster on the left side. I started with laser cuts using the ladder and lace strip in the middle. Then l've added chipboard frames and circles and built this up with leaves and flowers. l added some stencil cut leaves and micro beads. 

Another close up

Well that's all l have today, thanks for dropping by and see you again soon :)

Graduation Ceremony

 Hello again

Today l have used Art options Holiday Wishes collection from 49 and Market to create a layout of my gorgeous daughter's graduation from university

All the beautiful elements on my page are from the Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. These kits are amazing, filled with so many goodies. You can find them HERE

You don't always have to use christmas themed photos to use these christmas themed papers and l really like how this has turned out

The background paper is Holiday Wishes - Miracle and the base is Beacon of Light

Here are some closeups

I have used a mixture of inked and torn edges to my paper layers and have sanded the edges of the photos

The flowers are from Prima and 49 and Market and l have fussy cut others and layered them underneath

I finished by adding a tag with some journalling under a photo, a word stamp, pearls and micro beads for extra texture

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Making Memories

 Hi everyone, thanks for dropping by!

My layout today is using papers, flowers and die cuts from 49 and Market - Spectrum Sherbet and Art Options Alena ranges.

Chipboard is from 2 Crafty

I have used a mixture of die cuts and fussy cut images to create my flower clusters

The chipboard star frame was first covered with white gesso and then l simply rubbed metallic wax over it.

I painted the lace heart in teal and then covered it with glitter. I like the addition of some sparkle! 

Finally l added some word strips and rubons

Thanks for looking and have a great day

You make my heart sing

 Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all have a happy and healthy 2023

Today l am sharing a layout using 49 and Market papers, flowers and embellishments

I started by tearing a paper from the Spectrum Sherbet range and layering over my base paper, then added crackle paste to both sides for some texture. I love how this turned out!

Next l added some stencilling and green ink

I decided to make 3 flower clusters around my photo. These were made up with flowers, laser die cuts and chipboard. The leaf chippies were painted and the hanging heart from 2 Crafty has metallic wax in Old Silver. I have also added extra leaves and flowers from my new favourite metal die from i-crafter

I hope you enjoyed this layout and see you again soon

Hello everyone!

l am back from a fabulous holiday cruising from Honolulu to Brisbane with lots of new photos to scrap.

I'm sharing today a layout of my husband and l using papers and embellishments from the Alena Collection from 49 and Market which are all in the Limited Edition Kit from My Creative Scrapbook in their October kit. They have great kits with tons of papers, embellishments, flowers etc. This one also came with a stencil that l used on the background

I started with a coat of gesso over my paper - Alena Peek-A-Boo, and then used paste with the stencil to add texture to my background.

The layers under my photo are a combination of Ephemera Bits and Laser Cuts

I have fussy cut some flowers and combined them with some laser cuts to create the red flower cluster

I have mirrored the blue flowers in the opposite corner and layered more red flowers

My top corner collage is made up from Ephemera and Laser Cuts

The arch is from the laser cut elements

The rubons are from the Spectrum Sherbet collection

I hope you enjoyed my layout and have a great day!!
