I’ve had a lovely morning scrapping with my bestie… it is amazing how just spending some time hanging out and doing something creative has had a positive impact on my day. I can’t share what I have created yet this morning as it is secret squirrel design team stuff but I can share a layout i did yesterday for a challenge website called Scrap Your Stash – hmmm I think I have a fair bit of stash to get through so it was super easy for me to play along!!
The March challenge is to use the word STENCIL as the basis for your layout. So S = T = and so on. Here is my layout:
S = Stars, T = texture paste, E = envelope N = number in my title, C = corrugated card stock, I = ink – pen work L = lined paper
I used Maggie Holmes Open Book mainly for this one, including the gorgeous gold doily, stars and arrows are Freckled Fawn.
I had heaps of fun taking part in this challenge – I am definitely going to play along when I can.
I’m back with another layout to share. I have been getting the Hip Kits Clubs’ scrapbooking kits for the last few months – wow that is a tongue twister lol. I haven’t had much of an opportunity to have a good play with them yet but it has been on my to do list to get stuck into some kits when my design team commitments allow me to do so.
I have created this layout using the February Kit. As you know I love using kits as I find they just give me enough product to work with at one time and I love how it coordinates together too.
This layout is actually for their weekly challenge on Hip Kit Club’s Members Forum on Facebook. And I just love this photo of my girls with their friend MacKenzie at the caravan. MacKenzie is always picking up Aimee and carting her a round and of course Taylor has this weird cute expression on her face too.
Thanks for stopping by – do check back tomorrow as I have a layout to share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
I’ve used lots of embellies from Amy Tangerine ‘Stitched’ collection on this layout as well as some patterned papers from my stash – I love all the peachy tones that are popular at the moment. I loved using some different angles on this layout which is a bit different for me.
Evidence: Triangles, Rubons, leaves
Testimony: I used the words a Little Bit in my title
Thanks for stopping by today… hope you have time to solve this case with us.
Today I have a layout to share with you for Sketch #134 at Sketchabilities. This is my last sketch as a designer for Sketchabilities as my second term is up. I have had so much fun creating with Karan’s sketches over my two terms and will miss creating with these sketches. I am looking forward to seeing what the new design team create and hope I will have time to play along with some future sketches as a participant.
Righto this fortnight’s sketch
And my take -It is a nice coincidence that my layout features a cricket photo of Liam considering the Cricket World Cup is on right now. This is Liam on his first game of hardball for cricket this season all kitted out. It has been a bit of a challenge for him to bat this season with all the gear on but he has had a good season none the less. I have used lots of Amy Tan Stitched and a bit of Plus One on this one… along with a misted background to make the colours in the photo pop!
I hope you can play along with us for this sketch — If you would like to have the opportunity to be a Featured Designer and to go into the draw for the Sponsor Giveaway please be sure to link your layout no later then March 13th on the bottom of the designer reveal blog post.
Today I am sharing my second creation for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the Sugar & Spice Collection. The photos on my layout are of my girls taken on the first day back of kindy/creche/school and I love how adorable they both look. I am excited to see how much they grow up over the year. I was saying on my CVS blog post that I take heaps of photos and Instagram them and I love the square look photo – it is probably one of my favourite style of photos to scrap. Here I have two photos of the girls and have done a grid design. The colours in patterned papers of Sugar & Spice were are perfect match with my photos and I love to layer patterned papers on my layouts. Here, I have created layered squares under my photos and then balanced out the layout with two journal cards (But you could so easily add more photos onto this design).
Then I went about adding some cute embellishments – the sticker sheet is really easy to use – the stickers stick really well but also are easy to move and place in exactly the right spot without too much drama either. I loved combining the flower stickers with the wood veneers and how cute is that little banner!
I flipped it over and as I had more landscape photos and used a gorgeous colour combo of gold navy and pink with a hint of kraft!! This is Aimee and Indigo at Paint the Earth painting their money boxes. They both loved doing all the painting and we then we went out for a hot chocolate and fluffy afterwards. It was nice to spend some time just one on one with Aimee and her little friend.
Please be sure to link your layout on the Sketchabilities blog no later then Feb 26th

Today I have a layout to share with you that I have created for Color Stories Inspiration #154. This one is quite different for me but I loved this photo of my girls and one of their adventures on our Christmas holiday to the caravan.
And my layout:
Evidence: Wood grain (wood veneers) and Stripes
Testimony: My journaling is on the back. But I used the prompt word ‘possibilities’ “The possibilities are endless when you are running wild and free on holiday. Here Aimee and Taylor spent hours crab hunting on the mud flats with friends. I love the opportunities that camping brings to explore new things and have adventures. The possibilities are truly endless…”
