And my DT layout:
I have used the November kit “Rock Star Stuff” from Crazy Monday Scrapbooking kits to create my layout. Such amazing papers – love the colours and there were so many embellies that were perfect for this sketch! I just loved popping them with hints of black cardstock.
Love this photo of the 3 kids playing in the sand outside our cabin at Sandspit Holiday Park recently at Labour Weekend. This was their favourite thing to do as soon as breakfast had been consumed!
I would love to see some NZ layouts in the gallery so to go in the draw to win the prize from The Twinery

OMG. This sketch honestly scared the bejeezus out of me. Totally got me out of my comfort zone.
But OMG. I love my layout. Funny how that happens. This is one of the main reasons you should do things you aren’t so sure about. Because trust me you may surprise yourself with how much you like the end result. Here is my layout: I am loving the white on white thing at the moment. I cut the ‘pie chart’ shape out using my Cameo and then filled in the gaps with some Maggie Holmes patterned paper from Fleamarket. I then added it to my layout which I had splattered with neon Mister Hueys. I kept it really simple with minimal layering this time but added another cameo cut and a frame from the fleamarket collection as well.
Lastly, I added stitching detail with my sewing machine and some wee banners. Stitching was the perfect way of adhering the thin cameo cut to my layout too. I added a couple of cute bows on the end of my loose threads to tie it all together. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I would love to see your creations over at Creative Scrappers too.
Just a quick layout share today for Color Stories Inspiration challenge #98.
The scheme:My layout:details: Thanks for stopping by! We are having our next reveal for Creative Scrappers tomorrow NZ time – with another awesome sketch. Can’t wait to share it with you all.
Happy Saturday everyone..
I do love doing challenges… the last one for CSI is about to close tomorrow so I thought I had better finish that layout that I started earlier on in the week.
This was the CSI:
And my layout:
I started off using a SC Mask and texture paste to create the start of my visual triangle. I was definitely using up my stash with the almost vintage Echo Park For the Record collection coming out for this layout. The colours fit perfectly with the colour scheme we had to use.
Evidence:Typewriter accent, Typewriter font, Clock, Transparent (the clock), flower
Testimony: Typewriter font & using ‘message’ in my journaling.
A close up of my journaling – I started off by using my vintage typewriter so you can just see that bit popping out of the top of the photo. Then my journaling is mainly about loving how I have captured the joy of Taylor in my photo. I would rather have a 100 unposed photos that told a story rather than just a pose for the camera. More details – love using PL cards on my layouts. The cards here were from the Midnight BH collection. That’s all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by…
I have been eyeing up the sketches over there for a little while thinking they look like a whole lot of fun. But honestly, it has just been a little crazy around here that scrap time for me has been quite limited. I literally have stacks of pretty things starting to pile up that I haven’t had time to use. Shhh don’t tell Gary about that!
I have been dying to get out the Maggie Holmes Flea Market and this sketch just seemed perfect for the occasion.
You really can’t have too much Maggie on one page can you? Here is my take on the sketch. I love love love the sentiments on this patterned paper which worked perfectly for my photos. I also slightly moved the sketch to the right rather than the left and side of the page.
I had fun creating and distressing my background. First, I used my pink and gold gelatos to create a border around the edge of the patterned paper … I used the gelatos directly onto the paper and then the little brush with water to melt the colour a little bit so it wasn’t so harsh. Next I used the pink gelato and applied it to the edge of a glass jar to create the circles on my background as well. Lastly I applied the gelato colour directly to the dauber and stamped some spots randomly on my page. I also added pink and gold mister huey mist splatters!
How cute are these little stitched embellies… these are definitely a fav of mine. I also discovered the the gelatos worked amazingly well to colour my embellishments to alter them. I have used the pink gelato on the canvas cut butterfly and also my cameo cut above. I also used some of the flea market PL mini kit to layer behind my string of photos at the top. The little pegs are so cute and are left overs from my Pier stash.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really enjoyed playing along with this sketch. I hope you have enjoyed reading about how I put together my layout.
This fortnight’s sketch has two parts… you can either play with the straight sketch or the Creative Scrappers’ team has played along with the latest White with 1 challenge – BLUEBERRY!! Check out the reveal here! I just love all of the White with 1 DT entries and it was super fun to play along this month.
Here is the sketch:
And my DT interpretation. This is quite an old photo of Liam playing at Browns Bay beach a few summers ago. Taylor was still little and in a pushchair so quite some time ago!!
Quite a mix of papers and embellies from different manufacturers are on my layout. But the main papers are Crate Paper which are definitely a go too manufacturer at the moment. The little frame is from little yellow bicycle and was actually brown so I have used the reverse side of it which is white. I have coloured the stars with a mixture of denim distress ink and smooch ink to get the blueberry colour. The awesome in my title was cut using my cameo.
Also, we will have 2 prizes this month – one will be from the WW1 sponsor Charm Creations (for sketch 255 BlueBerry Challenge Only ) and the second will be from our sponsor Paper Issues for sketches 254 – 255.

Hope everyone in NZ is enjoying a lovely long weekend. I’ve got this post scheduled as all going well we will be away.
It is reveal day over at Creative Scrappers for sketch #254. I must admit I struggle with the whole triangle thing but that is what I love about sketches is that they sometimes PUSH my boundaries in my scrapping.
Here is the sketch:
And this is my layout: Hope you can see that I have flipped the sketch sideways to fit my photo! I have used Glitz Design’s Wild & Free collection which I think l looks amazing with a black and white photo. I have first splattered my layout with my SC Neon Mister Hueys which also work perfectly. The canvas cuts and the noted speech bubble are from D’lish Scraps.
To create the little triangle I have used a mix of border stickers and washi tape which was a super simple and quick way of making a triangle shape.
I hope you have had a chance to play along with one of the Creative Scrappers sketches and if not why not give this one a try?
