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 ♥

Be Bold, for Flutterby Designs

Hi everyone :)  Am definitely noticing a change in the weather down this end of the country.  So nice to be seeing a bit of sunshine.

My layout this time is all in black and white.
I have been busting to use the Blank Palette Everyday Etc cards and this background I found in my stash went perfectly with those cards.

My background is actually a leftover page I did in a Louise Nelson class.  I'd been a bit heavy handed on the white paint and sat this one aside knowing it be perfect for a layout one day.

The title, Be Bold has been cut from the Everyday Etc cards.  The camera, cheverons and 'favourite memories' were also cut from these.

My photo stack is a mixture of the cards.  I decided to print my photo in colour to help it stand out from all the black and white.

The 'Just be Cool' flair button goes with this page perfectly.  Of course there's few enamel dots on my page too.  

This layout has been finished off using some Tiny Sticky Quotes.

Hope you've been inspired ♥

Stay Wild, for Flutterby Designs

Hi everyone!
Super excited to be here again sharing another Flutterby Designs creation.
This time my page features the "Super Cool" collection.  I love this collection.  So much boy!

My background started out with some coloured moulding paste that I had left over from another project.  I just smeared this across my background and then added a layer of paste through the Stargazed Stencil.

I've cut some of the Everyday cards to make my cluster.  The photo has been fussy cut and slipped into the title card.

The star embellishment has been cut from a Everyday card and I've added a flair to the top of this for some dimension.

As per my usual, there's a little cluster down the bottom, finished off with some Enamel Dots.

Hope you've been inspired ♥

Be Happy, for Flutterby Designs

My first share for September.  Welcome Spring!!
Although the normally beautiful Geelong has decided to extend Winter.

For this page I have used more of the gorgeous Flawsome Collection, again the page created with a different theme to the design of the cards.

I started out with just a random spread of Sunshine Yellow Flutter Colour Paint.  Super bright!
Added a little splash of Black Mahem Flutter Colour to the top of this once dry.

I followed the shape of some of the cards for the chevron cut outs and have just layered different cards to use underneath my photo. I find the easiest way to do this is to staple them together.  Less messy than glue and easier to tuck pieces in.

My title is a wood veneer from the Flawsome wood veneer bits.  This has been coloured with Black Mayhem Flutter Colour.  
And a few enamel dots to finish off the page.

Hope you've been inspired ♥

Just be Cool, for Flutterby Designs

Hi again Flutterby Fans.  This weeks page I'm showcasing the awesome Xtreme Teen collection.

I've done quite a few pages with this set but I don't think one of them has featured a teenager.  The collection is so perfect for lots of stages.

My cardstock once again has been created with a gelli press and some paint.  I have also put a layer of moulding paste over the top of this with the Macaroon 5 stencil.

I have used Everyday Etc and filler cards for my photo cluser and added a couple of  page tabs to this.
The wood veneer title has been painted with Black Mahem and Grape Soda Flutter Colour Paint.

Finishing off the layout is a little cluster of sticky quotes and enamel dots.

Hope you've been inspired ♥
