Love You | Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI)

 Hi all!

Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) are currently holding a design team call so I thought I would create a few projects and apply to the call!

 This is my favourite layout that I created out of the 5 I created specifically for the design team call! I think its the design and of course the bright colours!

I used some MAMBI chipboard pieces and inked them to co-ordinate with the colours I have used in my layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today..

Such a Fun Day | Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI)

 Hi all!

Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) are currently holding a design team call so I thought I would create a few projects and apply to the call!

I decided to create this layout a little away from my usual style....by using the film strip photos I could create a more minimal layout...I chose to place embellishments to frame the photos keeping it close! 

I also decided on a yellow, red, black and white colour scheme for this layout after looking through what I had available to create with!

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

Hey Cowboy | Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI)

 Hi all!

Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) are currently holding a design team call so I thought I would create a few projects and apply to the call!

I have had these photos printed forever! When I saw these MAMBI Soft Spoken embellishments I knew I wanted to get these photos scrapped using these embellies!

I typed some journaling with my typewriter and then adhered 
it to my layout...

Baby Boy | Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI)

Hi there!

Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) are currently holding a design team call so I thought I would create a few projects and apply to the call!

I have had a few MAMBI goodies laying around for a few 
years now so I decided to pull those out and finally put them to good use!

 These photos are of my eldest son at just 4 weeks old...he will be 10 in a few weeks.... aarrgh where does the time go?!

I used bits and pieces from a few different MAMBI collections to create my layout...I like to mix and match collections from the same manufacturer, especially if they look like they will co-ordinate well!

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

Fishing Adventure | August Mood Board | Jot Magazine

Hi everyone!

Today I am stopping by to share a layout that I created for the new August Mood Board challenge over at Jot Magazine!  

Isn't this board just stunning...
it was designed by the lovely Amanda Hall!
Here is my take on the board....I was drawn to the blues and wanted to include the word Adventure like in the board!

 I used the gorgeous Pink Paislee 'Atlas' collection to create my layout.....

We went fishing just last week and I loved the photos I took so I was inspired right away!

Happy Selfies | August Recipe Challenge | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am stopping by to share a layout with you that I created for the Sassy Scrappers August challenge...this month its a recipe challenge! I don't usually get time to join in many challenges these days but this one really appealed to me plus there is an added bonus of the opportunity to guest design for Sassy! 

I used products from the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio
 'Up in the Clouds' collection to create my layout...

 I don't do messy scrapping well so I decided to really challenge myself and get a little messy with my mists and water.....I really love the soft result..you can see bits of my watercolouring underneath my embellishments!

I included some enamel dots and some Thickers to complete my layout also!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

You and Me | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Life Is Beautiful

Hi all!
I am back with you today to share a new layout using one of the stunning brand new Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections....'Life Is Beautiful'. This gorgeous brand new collection along with the beautiful brand new 'Tis the Season' collection will be available in the Cocoa Vanilla online store from the 28th of August, 2015! 
You and Me 1
When I saw that beautiful triangle paper I knew I wanted to use it for a background design like I have done here. The blue paper is the reverse side of that same paper so I just cut it in half diagonally and flipped it over and adhered it together using washi tape!
You and Me 1 Detail
I just love how everything co-ordinates so perfectly with Zoe's designs! Even when you mix the Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections together, everything just flows so easily!  
You and Me 1 Detail 2
Of course there is no shortage of absolutely gorgeous embellishments included again in the new collections! Everything you need to embellish and finish off your projects like stickers, ephemera, flair, wood veneer etc!

Sisters | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Hello Lovely

Hi everyone!
 Today I am stopping by to share a scrapbook layout with you using the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Hello Lovely' collection!
I chose the Glimmer patterned paper for my background, I have then layered one of Ashley's cut file backgrounds called 'Squared Away' from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
I really liked how the blue Glimmer patterned paper looked behind the cut file, it gave it a soft pastel starting point! 
I then started layering bits from the Hello Lovely collection on top of the cut file:

Fun Together | Paper Issues | August Sketchy Saturday

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a layout with you for the brand new Sketchy Saturday feature over at Paper Issues!
This month we are taking inspiration from Nicole Samuel's gorgeous layout below, Nicole created this layout for American Crafts 'No Patterned Paper Week' a few weeks ago...


Here is my take on Nicole's beautiful layout...I used lots of yummy Heidi Swapp goodies on my layout...I have mostly used items from the 'Hello Today' collection.....  

 I really liked that I could add bits and pieces of this and that to this layout!

This photo is of my beautiful sister and myself....we don't get to spend much time together anymore as she lives in England but when we get together its always so special and there are many pictures!!
