Colour Blast Challenge, Grateful

I haven't done a challenge for ages and now that I'm in my own little space again
I'm itching to create all the time.
I've had a go at this one.
I so love gold on black so I pulled out the Bling Colour Blast Paste and went at it.

I've used the Bling to stencil the roses on the background.

I used the same paste to paint some black card and heat embossed some roses in black to 
fussy cut.



With the left over blinged up card I have die cut some leaves and roses.


Love the gradient look of these.

Beautiful, for Kraft Plus

Hi everyone,
Have finally moved  and have super fast internet.  No excuses now for not keeping this blog
up to date ♥

I know this month is the silly season and there's so much crazy to do but I hope you all 
find a little time to relax and enjoy what you love.

Today I'm sharing my sample for the Kraft+ mood board for December.  I have to say I sighed
a little in relief when I saw that it wasn't full of greens and reds and Christmas themed.
Instead it's full of some of my favourite colours.








Upload your creation to the Kraft+ blog before the end of the month for a chance
to win some awesome prizes.

The World is Yours, for Flutterby Designs


Another share this month with the amazing, We Run the World kit.  
This time I have used it as an affirmation on my layout for one of my nieces.  
There are just so many awesome quotes in this set that you want to use them all at once ♥


My background started with some gelli printing.  I have used some Tropicana Teal with this.  My fave colour ever.


The title for this layout has been cut from one of the Everyday Etc Cards. OMG, again, soooo many to choose from.


I also cut the brushstroke I am a girl and the hearts from a card.  These have been layered with a photo cut out frame with a couple of Page Tabs added to the top.
Whenever I cut out strips of words I like to add little tabs to the end of some of the pieces.  Just adds a little more visual interest.



Hope you've been inspired ♥

I am a Queen, for Flutterby Designs


OMG, how freakin inspiring is the We Run the World collection!!

I can see that I will be using every tiny little leftover piece from this one.
There's so much to choose from, the quotes are amazing and the cards are gorgeous.


I was also pretty stoked to find some cards with flowers.  So something I wasn't expecting from this collection.  But then, I think celebrating being a woman is not just about strength and independence, it's also about freedom and being able to show a little girly girl when you want.


This background was done with some Grape Soda Flutter Colour Paint.  I've been in the process of moving house and packed up most of my supplies.  In hindsight, I perhaps should have left out some paint brushes.  Maybe then I wouldn't have had to slap some paint down with a piece of paper towel ♥
The awesome stencil, He Said She Said, has been used with a black texta also.  I chose just to use the female shape on this page.


The circle around my photo has been cut from an Everyday Etc Card (so have the flowers ♥) and the title.  These have all been outline with a black sharpie to help them stand out a little.
I have embellished this with a flair button and a little crown Die Cuts.


Finishing off I have a Page Tab, some Die Cuts, Sticky Quotes and some Enamel Dots.


Hope you've been inspired ♥

Your Are Loved, for Flutterby Designs


Hello everyone, back again today with another page freaturing the Flawsome range.

My background is a mix of gelli printing and stamping.


I've used different cards and elements from the Everyday Etc Cards to layer up a photo stack.


The Flutterby Wood Veneer have been coloured with a Sharpie.  So quick and easy and no dry time.



I've used one of my favourite flair buttons and a sprinkle of Futterby Enamel Dots.  The cirlces in the background have been stamped on and cut from some Everyday Etc Cards.



This wood veneer was also coloured with a Sharpie, has a bit of a wood look still.






Hope you've been inspired ♥
