Hi everyone!

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to all my fellow Aussie friends out there!! I hope you have a great day celebrating our wonderful country!! 

Today I am back to share not 1, but 2 layouts with you featuring some of the beautiful cut files from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store!

I enlarged the 'Love' Pop Cap cut file from the Pop Cap Cut File Set and cut it out on white cardstock, I then machine stitched around the outside of the LOVE and the outer edge also... 

I used all different American Crafts collections on this one Dear Lizzy's 'Daydreamer' Amy Tangerine's 'Cut & Paste' and 'Stitched' and Shimelle's collection...

I also used the 'Love Us' arrow from the Write This Down cut file set...

Here is the second layout that I am sharing..... 
I wanted to show you that I made use of the 'LOVE' title from the previous layout that I cut....I machine stitched it to the bottom of my layout...   

I used the 'Always' arrow from the Write It Down cut file set on this layout too...  

I used Amy Tangerine's 'Stitched' 'Cut & Paste' and 'Plus One' for this layout...

Make sure to stop by The Cut Shoppe Etsy store to 
see what awesome cut files are available... 
Thank you so much for stopping by today...have a great day....

Do Not Disturb....

Hi all!!

Still on my 'Use My Stash' binge and with not too many commitments lately I have been able to take advantage of using up stash!
Another layout share today using lots of different Pink Paislee collections...some REALLY OLD ones in there too!

If you follow me on Instagram, I shared this layout the other day, so you may have already seen it! 

I have used Pink Paislee collections: Hey Kid, Portfolio, Vintage Vogue, Color Wash, Phantom, Daily Junque and Nantucket.....

Don't you just love the look on my eldest son's face here lol?!! He is clearly not happy about something, hence the title of this layout being 'Do Not Disturb' LOL!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog...I love reading all your comments, thank you so much for leaving them!!

So Cozy...

So lately I have been on a 'Use My Stash' spree and I tell you it feels great to use up some stuff lol! I really like that I can stay true to my style but use up some older stash at the same time! 

I created this layout for the current January Mood Board challenge over at Jot Magazine.. I have used all Pink Paislee products on this layout except for the flair, the ribbon and the wooden peg...  

This is the gorgeous Mood Board to take inspiration from designed by Kim Archer...
I ran that vellum journaling spot straight through my trusty old typewriter to type up my journaling... 

I was inspired by the bright colours and the confetti from the board...they both reminded me of my son's quilt that was handmade by my Aunty..

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Happy creating and have a great day...

Be Happy...

Hi there everyone!

Today I am here with you to share a layout I recently created using just one amazing cut file set from The Cut Shoppe.....I decided to use just the one title 'Be Happy' from the Word Up set....I repeated it all over my layout using the black sketch pen....

The Cut File Set I used...Word Up

I used some watercolour pencils to shade inside one
 of the 'Be Happy' titles for a pop of colour.....

I used lots of different Amy Tan papers and
 embellishments to help create my layout.... 

Ashley is so amazing with her designs for the etsy store..check out all the wonderful cut files in store at The Cut Shoppe now...don't forget, you don't always have to cut the files, you can use your sketch pens to draw with them too just like I did on this layout!

Of course them going home is not going to stop me from scrapping photos of him so I can look at him some more!!

Happy New Year blogging friends!!

I am here with you today to share my first of 3 layouts that I have created using the gorgeous 'Sunshine and Lollipops' Scrapbook Kit!

I had a photo in mind when I saw the muted tones of the Bo Bunny chevron patterned paper included in this kit so I kept the colours fairly muted on my layout with just a touch of teal added....


I love to challenge myself to try and use only the things included in the monthly kits for a page but this time I have added a few extra items that aren't included in the kit.....the paper doily, the shipping tag, the gold mist and the thin washi tape at the top of the layout..

The photo is of my gorgeous sister-in-law and my even more gorgeous nephew Samuel...who are currently over from England visiting! I am getting so many cuddles and love from him...I just adore him so much!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today....if you would like a December Sunshine and Lollipops Scrapbook kit, hop over to the store now to purchase one as they are going like hotcakes!

Have a great day and happy creating!!

I teamed up the awesome cut files with the Heidi Swapp 'Believe Collection' and some of my favourite pieces of Christmas wood veneer...

The cut files I used on this layout are:

The Naughty and the Nice from the 'North Pole' set

The middle tree from the 'Season's Greetings' set..
