Sunshine and Happiness | Pretty Little Studio Guest Designer

Hi everyone!
Today I am back to share another layout I created as part of my guest appearance for Pretty Little Studio!


The Here Comes The Sun collection from Pretty Little Studio is so dreamy and gorgeous! I just love the clouds and the sun coming out from behind those clouds! It was perfect for my photo of my sons at the beach with the clouds above them! 


As the papers are 8' x 8' size, I decided to mat the vellum piece I had onto white cardstock and then popped it up from the white background cardstock as well. I really like the white on white effect, I also added a blue cardstock to break up a little of the white and to bring in some of the colour from the vellum.


My title is a cut file from Just Nick Studio cut from a salmon pink cardstock...I really like the added touch of pink this brings to my layout!


I added some more mist in a teal blue colour to continue on the mist effects the vellum piece has.....

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Check out the Pretty Little Studio store for the gorgeous product I have used on my layout!

Happy creating!

Go Explore | Pretty Little Studio Guest Designer

Hi everyone!

Today I am back to share another layout created for my guest design spot at Pretty Little Studio!

The Let's Go Travel collection is one of my favourites...I started off by cutting a globe cut file from white cardstock, machine stitched it, backed it with one of the stripey papers and then placed it back inside the cardstock where it was cut out.

This photo of my eldest son holding a globe was perfect for this layout...I changed it to black and white as the original colours in the photo didn't quite go with the colours in the collection...once I changed it, this layout came together really easily! 

Pretty Little Studio collections have the most gorgeous pieces to add little details...I found some perfect pieces to add touches to this layout..

I always love word stickers or phrases and the ones in the Let's Go Travel collection were brilliant to add to this layout.... 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Hello Paris | February 2017 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
Today I am back with you to share a new design team layout for Hip Kit Club using the amazing February 2017 Main and Add-On kits!
I have been blessed once with a trip to Paris a couple of years ago and I am super duper lucky to be going again in 7 weeks time! As soon as I saw that gorgeous Amour paper by Dear Lizzy I just knew that  I had to pull out a Paris photo!
I started out by cutting the geometric heart cut file from one of the pink patterned papers included in the February 2017 Main kit and backed it with that gorgeous Amour paper and then machine stitched around the outside. I used some foam tape to pop it up from the mint coloured background paper.
While creating this layout I was pulling out bits and pieces to embellish it with...I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the date on the globe sticker with the number 24 and then May and Wed really small.......THIS IS THE EXACT DAY WE ARE GOING TO PARIS!! We are getting the Eurostar across from England on this date! Can you believe that?! That sticker was made just for me and this layout!!
I love all the embellishments that refer to travel included in the February 2017 Hip Kits...they are just perfect for this layout! I also added one of those gorgeous fringed butterflies and a gold puffy heart by Maggie Holmes from the Chasing Dreams collection.
I absolutely love how this layout turned out and I hope I have inspired you to create some projects using some of your Hip Kits!?
Happy creating...see you next week!

Scrapbooking Everyday | Pretty Little Studio Guest Designer

Hi everyone!
A little while back, I was asked if I would like to guest design for Pretty Little Studio. Of course the answer was yes and so I have 4 projects to share over the next couple of days with you!
I was asked to create an 'About Me' project for my first day...

I just had to create a layout about me and my love for scrapbooking! I used the 8 x 8 fruit stand paper from the 'Summer Vibes' collection to back that large title cut file..


I also used some of the Adore bookmark tags and one of the wood veneer pieces from the Oakley Avenue collection too!

One of the pretty 4 inch Cambridge doilies was a nice layering piece underneath my photo too..

Stay tuned for 3 more projects using Pretty Little Studio products over the next few days!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Happy creating!

LOVE | Sassy Scrappers | Simple Stories Love and Adore

Hi everyone!

Today I am back to share a new scrapbook layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the gorgeous Simple Stories Love and Adore collection!

I was inspired this week to use lots of different size circles on my layout...I even die cut my photo into a circle shape too! I added machine stitching to each individual circle for extra texture. 


This layout design is a great one to do if you only have scraps left! You can simply punch circles from patterned paper and you have an instant design! I also decided to fussy cut that LOVE title from one of the journal cards and I also machine stitched through it to create texture!


I just LOVE that geometric chipboard heart! I wanted it to take centre stage on this layout so incorporating it into the title was the perfect solution! Lots of other ephemera hearts were also added from the ephemera pack to help balance my page.


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you will check out this gorgeous collection plus all the other beautiful goodies now in the Sassy store!

Happy creating and have a great week!

123 DAB | Just Nick Studio

Hi everyone!
 Today I am sharing a new layout created for Just Nick Studio using one of their awesome background cut files!
My 2 sons are such typical boys......the latest craze is doing a Dab wherever they are without a care in the world! I have had this photo of them doing a Dab together at the Monster Trucks show we went to last year!
Here is the cut file I used on this layout....the Visual Effects background cut file!
I cut the cut file from white cardstock and decided to back it on a darker contrasting colour behind the cut file. I used lots of Crate Paper for this layout including the Hey Boy collection and the Cool Kid collection. The dark background paper came from the Flea Market collection I think it was! I love how the dark strips contrast against the white strips too!
Machine stitching adds some texture to the layout as well as helps to adhere the cut file to the background paper. Recently I got some really fun boy themed flair buttons to add to my stash and one of those just had to be added to this layout! 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, I hope you are inspired to try some of the amazing cut files found in the Just Nick store!
Happy creating!

You Hold the Key to My Heart | Sassy Scrappers | Simple Stories Love and Adore

Hi there friends!

Today I am back with you today sharing another design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers featuring the gorgeous Simple Stories Love and Adore collection!

I started my layout by cutting a heart background cut file from the 'So Happy Together' paper with the pink side up! I then backed some of the holes in the hearts with other patterned papers. This photo is of my Mum with 3 of her treasures (as she calls them) my 2 sons and my niece Amelia! My Mum absolutely LOVES her grandchildren and can not get enough of them so this layout is dedicated to the love she holds for all of them...even the 2 treasures who were unfortunately not there that day..

As soon as I saw that 'You Hold the Key to My Heart' 3x4 card, I just knew that it had to be included on this layout....I found the metal key in my stash to add to it too...I think it goes perfectly! I used lots of the stickers, ephemera and chipboard stickers to embellish my layout and that flair button was from my stash too!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Be sure to check out the Sassy store...you never know what you might find in there!

Happy creating!
