Game Addiction....

Hi all!

So Awesome - Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!
I was lucky enough to receive both the AMAZING brand new Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections at the end of last week and couldn't help but create a layout straight away with the 'Made of Awesome' collection!
**Please note: The brand new collections will be available to purchase from the beginning of June 2015**
So Awesome 1
There are SO many AMAZING embellishments in both the new collections....from tickets, to vellum hearts and stars, enamel dots...the list goes on!! One of the super cute new embellishments in the 'Made of Awesome' collection are those metal camera charms...I just LOVE them!
Of course there are still beautiful papers and a few of the fave embellishments like flair and wood veneers included in the new collections.... everything I have used on this layout is from the 'Made of Awesome' collection except the couple of spots of mist...I challenged myself and used at least one of everything from the collection!
So Awesome 1 Detail 2

So have I teased you enough into wanting the brand new Cocoa Vanilla collections? 
Trust me, they are a must have!!
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!

Happy creating! See you next time!

100 Years of Anzac...

Hi there everyone!

Today I am sharing an ANZAC themed layout with you....

Sadly this will be my last project share as part of the WOW team....its time for me to take a step down from the team....I have had such a wonderful time here on the WOW team for almost 2 years and I want to thank Suzanne and Sandra for asking me to join and all the other DT girls for being so wonderful to work with too!

We visited my home town for Anzac weekend and so I managed to get some great shots of us commemorating 100 Years since the First World War. We raised the flag, went to watch the march, listened to the service and even planted some Poppy Seeds in my parents garden too!

WOW products used:

Thankful For You...

Hi everyone!

I hope you have a lovely day and get to do something you love and enjoy!

Today I am sharing a layout where I have scrapped a photo of myself with my gorgeous Mum in the middle and my beautiful sister on the left.....the colours we are wearing in the photo inspired the colours for my layout! 

I have used some Elle's Studio products on this layout as well as some of my favourite chipboard from WOW!

I inked all the WOW wood veneer featured on this layout as it suited my colour scheme.
WOW used:

I love those cute resin bows from D-lish Scraps too!

Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today.....have a lovely Mother's Day..

Hippity Hop....

Hi everyone!

Today I am back with you to share a cute Easter themed layout I recently created using some well suited cut files from The Cut Shoppe of course!
Being an Easter themed layout, I wanted to keep a pastel colour scheme throughout...I started by cutting the 12 x 12 Scalloping Circles cut from pale pink cardstock... 
I used some of the pretty Elle's Studio 'Cienna' collection to help create this layout...
I cut the 'Tiny Type' alphabet letters from some grey
 cardstock to make the title stand out a little better...
How cute is that pink resin bunny? I have had him in my
 stash for ages waiting for the perfect layout to add him to! 
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today! Have you checked out all the amazing cut files in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store lately? There are sooo many to choose from you won't know where to start!

See you next time....

Good Times...

Hi there!!
 Today I am sharing a layout I recently created using the super adorable Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flying High collection!
I wanted to show how versatile this collection is by creating more of a masculine layout rather than a cutesy layout for a change. 
By selecting a few key pieces from the Flying High collection, I was able to create a layout that documents a memory of my older son riding a motorbike! I have been loving printing my photos into filmstrips lately! I like that they are small and I can layer underneath them!

Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flying High products I used are:
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to get out your Cocoa Vanilla goodies and create!
See you next time...
