Lovely Friends...

Hi everyone!!
Today I am sharing a layout that I recently created using the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sugar & Spice collection..as I don't have daughters I am always hunting some girly photos! I often scrapbook about my sister and also my close relationship that myself and Mum have...this is one of those layouts!
Lovely Friends
To create my layout, I began by cutting a series of hearts onto white cardstock for my background with my Silhouette Cameo.....I then backed all of the hearts with many of the different Sugar & Spice patterned papers, once happy with the placement of all the papers and my photo I began to embellish my page with the Sugar and Spice embellishments...I used some of the Cork HeartsWood VeneerFlair Buttons and the Accessory Stickers..
Lovely Friends Detail 2Aren't the Sugar & Spice Accessory Stickers just gorgeous?! There are so many cute things to use to embellish a project with!
I used a few different colour pens and drew some faux stitching around each of the hearts for a little bit of an outline.....I also sprinkled a little black mist to break up some of the stark white cardstock!! Lovely Friends Detail
Thank you for joining me on my blog today....have you checked out all the gorgeous products in the Cocoa Vanilla store recently? I promise you won't be disappointed!
See you next time...

Love You Awesome Nerd...

Hi!

I have been stash busting again!! This is a layout that I created recently using one of my all time favourite kid collections....'Hey Kid' by Pink Paislee!

The 'Love You Awesome Nerd' title is super cute and available at The Cut Shoppe....it was cut with my Silhouette Cameo in white cardstock but I then inked it with black Staz-On ink to make it pop!


I also added some of my favourite wood veneer pieces from Words or Whatever chipboard to go with them theme too....that InstaFun wood veneer piece is one I designed a few months back!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

See you next time...

Sweetness.....

Hi all!

Today I wanted to share a layout that I created for this month's Scrap The Boys challenge!
I haven't joined in over there in like forever so I decided to give it a crack this month as I really liked the mono tones of their Mood Board challenge...

The beautiful Mood Board to take inspiration from...

This is my layout using the board for inspiration....I have scrapped a photo of my littlest munchkin with a super cheeky grin on his face!

I have used lots of Heidi Swapp products on this layout...I am still trying to use up my stash!! I have added some journalling to the Kraft tag on the right of my layout and tucked it under the papers and embellishments..

 Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

See you soon..

Brothers...

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share another of the 5 layouts I created for the 2015 Bella Blvd Creative Team Call! I was unsuccessful in making the team but I am super happy with what I created for the call!


 When I work with a particular manufacturer I love to mix and match collections to see what works for me and what doesn't work! Here I have used a fairly old Bella Blvd Sunshine and Happiness patterned paper (the yellow/orange spotted one) and some bits and pieces from the Birthday Boy collection but also some things from some of the newer collections Tiny Tots and Hello Autumn! 

This photo is one of my very favourite ones of my 2 boys together..I wanted to document how close they are even though they are 5 years apart in age... I typed my journalling on the computer and then cut it up into strips!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
I hope you are finding time to create?!

See you next time...

I Love Right Now...

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter! Myself and my family had a really nice relaxing time eating too much chocolate of course!! We bummed around in our pj's as the weather wasn't fabulous but we didn't mind as it was just what the doctor ordered I think, sometimes some mental health days are good!

This month (April) Words or Whatever are sponsoring the challenge over at the new Kraft+ challenge blog....myself and Tess from the WOW design team were asked to play along with the challenge!
Its a fabulous challenge this month with some retro colours and a recipe to follow!


Here is the layout I created specifically for the challenge...I used the American Crafts/Amy Tan 'Stitched' collection for this layout...my background Kraft cardstock is by Kaisercraft.

The WOW chipboard I have used on the layout are some New Release Wood Veneer pieces:

I absolutely adore this photo of my super gorgeous nephew Samuel! He is getting so big now and so funny too....love him so so much! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today...I hope you can join in this months Kraft+ challenge...there are lots of great prizes up for grabs as always!!

See you next time...

Seriously....

Hi everyone!

HAPPY EASTER!!!

Today I am back with you to share a fun layout I created for The Cut Shoppe!

Last year I went to a scrapbooking retreat and one of the nights was an 80's dress up night, it was SO much fun and SOOO funny to see everyone dressed up!! I have had this photo printed for a while to scrap but I just couldn't think what I wanted to do with it so when I saw the 'Seriously' title from the 'Moody Blues' cut file set I knew it would suit my layout theme!
 I love that I can use The Cut Shoppe cut files non traditionally meaning that this one in particular is obviously a weather themed set but I have used it for a totally different themed layout!
 I have used some lovely Pinkfresh Studio 'Up in the Clouds' products teamed with the cut file title to create my layout...I wanted the title to stand out a little bit so I popped one of the ephemera pieces behind the 'O' letter..
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today...check out all the awesome cut files available in store now at The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store!

See you later..

Happy Boy...

Hi everyone!
I am back with you again today to share another recent layout I created using the super adorable Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flying High collection!
I am so lucky to be a part of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Design Team, I feel so so lucky to have access to these gorgeous products all the time to create and document my memories... and that's what its all about right?!
This photo is of my super cute nephew Samuel! He lives in England so I don't get to see him often but of course I still adore him! I got to spend Christmas with him which was wonderful because it was his first Christmas, lots of cuddles and wonderful memories! I hope to go over to visit him either later this year or next year, we will see how the finances are going! Happy Boy
I used lots of the Flying High stickers on this layout, I layered them a little and also used some of them as borders too..I love mixing up lots of the different patterned papers for some colour and to make my photo pop! I printed out some journaling on my printer and then cut it up into strips, I really like the look this gives, it fills in a void without using another paper or embellishment.
Happy Boy Detail
Thank you so much for stopping by my today.....till next time...happy creating!

Love This...

Hi everyone!
 Today I am here to share a new layout with you using the super gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sugar & Spice collection of course!
Love This
I haven't used a great deal of this gorgeous collection because I have sons so I naturally go for the super cute Flying High collection more than this one but I really love doing girly pages for a change and I knew I wanted to add lots of layers for this layout!
Love This Detail
I have used some foam tape under lots of the papers here for dimension, that then allowed me to tuck some embellishments underneath for more texture and variation..I made use of lots of the pretty Sugar & Spice stickers for this as well...I love the stickers!
Love This Detail 2
The only item I have used that is not from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio range is that paper doily that I have cut in half and tucked under some of the layers also...I have added some hidden journaling to the flower journaling card on the left hand side of my layout and tucked it so that it can be pulled in and out...
Love This Detail 3
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today, I hope I have inspired you to create with your Cocoa Vanilla Studio products...
See you next time, happy creating!

Happy Girls....

Hi all!

Today I am back to share another of the 5 layouts I created for the 2015 Bella Blvd Creative Team Call! I was unsuccessful in making the team however I was really happy with my projects!

You can see 2 of the other layouts I created for the call here and here!

I love this photo of myself and a few of my girlfriends on a recent night out together!

I love to mix up collections and use them for what they are not meant for.....for this layout I have used quite a bit of the Engaged at Last collection but as you can see I used it for a girls night out theme instead of an engagement!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

That's My Boy | Flying High Collection

Hi there!
Today I want to share another layout I have created using the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flying High collection!
This photo is of my eldest son at just over 1 year old....he is going to be 10 years old later this year!! I can't believe how time flies, I really need it to slow down!!
That's My Boy
The Flying High collection was perfect to use to scrap this photo...it goes perfectly with my son's little denim jacket and super cute beanie! He looks so scrumptious in this photo hehe!
That's My Boy Detail
Everything you see on this layout comes from the Flying High collection..except the white mist and the white pen for the fake stitching..I used my typewriter for my journalling also..

Little Lovebug...

Hi all..

Today I wanted to stop by and share with you the 1st of the 5 layouts that I created as part of my unsuccessful application for the 2015 Bella Blvd Creative Team Call..I was extremely happy with the layouts I created for this call even though I was unsuccessful......I wasn't too upset I didn't make the team as I am ever so grateful for the wonderful opportunities I already have, so time would have been a big thing and besides I really like the challenge of creating with just that particular manufacturer!

I also created a few extra layouts featuring Bella products to share on social media and here on my blog for some exposure, you can see these layouts here, here and here!

 This layout would be one of my current favourites! I love the colours and that super cute photo of my sweet nephew Sam!!

I have used a few bits and pieces from all different BB collections...I love to do this as I feel it busts the stash a little more!
