Fishing Adventure | August Mood Board | Jot Magazine

Hi everyone!

Today I am stopping by to share a layout that I created for the new August Mood Board challenge over at Jot Magazine!  

Isn't this board just stunning...
it was designed by the lovely Amanda Hall!
Here is my take on the board....I was drawn to the blues and wanted to include the word Adventure like in the board!

 I used the gorgeous Pink Paislee 'Atlas' collection to create my layout.....

We went fishing just last week and I loved the photos I took so I was inspired right away!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Selfies | August Recipe Challenge | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am stopping by to share a layout with you that I created for the Sassy Scrappers August challenge...this month its a recipe challenge! I don't usually get time to join in many challenges these days but this one really appealed to me plus there is an added bonus of the opportunity to guest design for Sassy! 

I used products from the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio
 'Up in the Clouds' collection to create my layout...

 I don't do messy scrapping well so I decided to really challenge myself and get a little messy with my mists and water.....I really love the soft result..you can see bits of my watercolouring underneath my embellishments!

I included some enamel dots and some Thickers to complete my layout also!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

You and Me | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Life Is Beautiful

Hi all!
I am back with you today to share a new layout using one of the stunning brand new Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections....'Life Is Beautiful'. This gorgeous brand new collection along with the beautiful brand new 'Tis the Season' collection will be available in the Cocoa Vanilla online store from the 28th of August, 2015! 
You and Me 1
When I saw that beautiful triangle paper I knew I wanted to use it for a background design like I have done here. The blue paper is the reverse side of that same paper so I just cut it in half diagonally and flipped it over and adhered it together using washi tape!
You and Me 1 Detail
I just love how everything co-ordinates so perfectly with Zoe's designs! Even when you mix the Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections together, everything just flows so easily!  
You and Me 1 Detail 2
Of course there is no shortage of absolutely gorgeous embellishments included again in the new collections! Everything you need to embellish and finish off your projects like stickers, ephemera, flair, wood veneer etc!

Sisters | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Hello Lovely

Hi everyone!
 Today I am stopping by to share a scrapbook layout with you using the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Hello Lovely' collection!
I chose the Glimmer patterned paper for my background, I have then layered one of Ashley's cut file backgrounds called 'Squared Away' from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
I really liked how the blue Glimmer patterned paper looked behind the cut file, it gave it a soft pastel starting point! 
I then started layering bits from the Hello Lovely collection on top of the cut file:

Travel Week | Epiphany Crafts

Hi everyone!

 Today I am here to share a layout with you that I created for travel week over on the Epiphany Crafts blog!
Cape York Roadtrip

A couple of years ago my husband and our eldest son went on a huge
roadtrip with some friends to the very Northern tip of Australia....
of course they had to get evidence that they actually got right to the tip!
Cape York Roadtrip Detail

I have used the round 25 tool with the round bubble caps and the heart 25 tool
with the heart bubble caps to create embellishments that compliment my travel themed layout....

Movieworld | Made of Awesome | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!

Today I am here to share a layout that I recently created using the amazing Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Made of Awesome' collection
Movieworld



Ashley Horton, owner of Etsy store The Cut Shoppe, was very kind and offered all of the Cocoa Vanilla team some of her cut files to use with our products! I have lots of Ashley's cut files already as I was lucky enough to be on her team for a while and I absolutely LOVE them and her work too, she is an amazing artist! For this layout I chose to use the background cut file 'Star Spangled', I sized it down a little bit and then cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo. I used the 'Awesome' patterned paper for my background paper and machine stitched some black thread on every second sun ray. Movieworld Detail
I fussy cut some stars from the 'Rockstar' patterned paper and backed them to the background cut file. I also added some vellum stars on the larger stars on the outer edge of the cut file both underneath and on top.  
Movieworld Detail 2
I embellished the rest of my layout with 'Made of Awesome' wood veneer, accessory stickers, flair, enamel dots, ephemera, charms and little stars! Lastly I added a curved title with the Alphabet Stickers!
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today...make sure you check out the Cocoa Vanilla Studio store for a look at all the gorgeous products in there!

Explore | Jot Magazine | July Mood Board

Hi everyone!

As many of you know, I LOVE joining in with the monthly mood board challenges each month held over at Jot Magazine


The colours in this board are just so beautiful! Even though I haven't used the exact orange colour, it felt good to stash bust a little more! I have used some fairly old Studio Calico products on this layout! 

I have included some journalling on the blue shipping tag.....its easily pulled out to read....

I also used one of the Studio Calico roller stamps and stamped a few words and shapes too!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today...
