Paper Issues....'Woodn't You Know, It's Fall' issue!

Hi everyone!

 Over at Paper Issues there is a current issue 
and that is a 'Woodn't You Know, It's Fall' issue!!

All this means is that there are a few different bits of criteria based around 'Fall/Autumn' that you can use on your projects to join in and you can link up some projects old or new!!

Here is the criteria:
  • Any project about the fall season.
  • What says "fall" to you? Is it the changing leaves, hay rides, corn mazes, hiking, a nature walk or scavenger hunt?
  • What is fall like where you live?
  • Use wood veneer, tree, acorn or woodland animal embellishments.
  • Do you have wood grain paper in your stash? Now's your chance to bust it out and use it. 
  • What do you love most about fall?
  • Tell us about your fall traditions. Maybe it's apple picking, going to the pumpkin patch, or getting lost in a corn maze.
  • Do you decorate your house for fall? Show us your home decor.
  • Choose earthy/natural colors for your project.
  • Use Pinkfresh Studio products.

I thought I would have a little recap of 3 of my favourite layouts from the past few months all that hopefully meet the here goes!

'Groom Shoes' 

'I am a Rockstar'

Hi again everyone...

Let me tell you a little about Papercut Labs.....this is a new online classroom with scrapbooking and cardmaking classes taught by some of our elite Australian teachers including Jen Hall and Natalie Elphinstone....I am lucky enough to be a part of the blogging team at Papercut Labs so I I am lucky to get an inside look into the classes......recently I took a look at Jen's amazing 'Colour Series' classes and today I am sharing a layout that is inspired by her classes, this layout was also recently published on the Papercut Labs


I started off with a clear gesso background so that my watered down mist would have something to adhere too... once dry, I got out my Heidi Swapp Color Shines and went to town with creating a watercolour effect... 

I also stamped the background with lots of different stamps and different coloured inks as well...

The papers I have used are from Heidi Swapp's 'Favorite Things' collection....  

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

Everything used on this layout is included in the Penny Lane Scrapbook kit except for the white cardstock, the paper doily, the white thread and the mist....

 I just love the Crate Paper frames..they perfect for layering....

Today I am sharing my 3rd layout that I created with the gorgeous Scrappy Canary August Bohemian Scrapbook Kit.....if you would like to see the other two layouts I can see one here and the other here....

Paper Issues has a new issue and this time it's 'Woodn't you Know, It's Fall' this issue is being sponsored by Pinkfresh Studio and one of the criteria for this issue is to use Pinkfresh Studio products!

Everything I have used on this layout is in this gorgeous kit apart from the white cardstock, mist and machine stitching! 

With the bright colours in this kit, I decided on a black and white photo to make the photo really stand out!

Small spots of mist and machine stitching add some interest and texture without overdoing it...

Thank you for stopping by my blog today...there are still a few of the Bohemian kits left if you have been inspired by any of my Scrappy Canary layouts this month...head over to the Scrappy Canary shop to check out the gorgeousness!! 

Happy creating...

Make A Wish...

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing another layout using some of the WOW July new release chipboard!

'Make A Wish'

As soon as I saw these gorgeous chippie blooms from the Bloom Pack I knew I wanted to use this photo as the blooms remind me so much of dandelions!
I got to work doing some embossing using a Versamark Watermark inkpad, some Tinby Designs Metallic Melts in Glistening Snow and my heatgun....

I deliberately left some of the melts unmelted so that it had some texture just like dandelions have that brushed look...

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today....I hope I have inspired you to create some lovely projects with your WOW stash!

See you soon...

Snap Click Smile....

Hi all!

I am back with you again today sharing another layout using the beautiful Scrappy Canary Bohemian Scrapbook Kit! This is the second layout I have created with this kit that I am sharing with you today...all together I have created 3 layouts with this kit and still have LOADS left over! If you would like to see the first layout you can see that on the blog here.....the 3rd I am keeping up my sleeve for a little longer..... 

'Snap Click Smile' 

I absolutely love chevron so I just had to use that Chic Tags 'Lovely' patterned paper from the Cloud Nine collection that is featured in this kit as my background.....

The Snap, Click, Smile title was cut with my Silhouette Cameo but the title is not included in this kit.....I also adore the Pinkfresh Studio mini enamel frames and the exclusive Wilna stamp all are included in this fabulous Bohemian Kit!    

I just love that all the products in the kits still go together even though there are lots of different manufacturers...I was really happy with this layout!

Don't forget that you don't have to commit to a kit subscription if you do not wish can simply order one or all of the kits for the month and see how you like creating with them! 

So that's it from me today......happy creating!
