Hi, today I have a layout to share which I made for the Swirlydoos Round Robin challenge. This is a great challenge where you scrap lift the person before you's layout.
Head to the Swirlydoos forum to check out the details

For this I decided to use the Prima Epiphany collection papers. I only have a few pieces left as this is one of my favourite collections. 

I have also used Prima flowers, butterflies. lace, wood icon and crystals,

I used the Prima Roses stencil with Finnabair light paste on my background along with Prima Colour Bloom sprays in Glistening Waves, Soft Teal and Storm Cloud.

I was also inspired by this months Prima Product Pick. I love using all my Prima goodies.

Kaisercraft True Love Collection for Bella Paperie

Hi everyone, I hope you all are having a lovely holiday period. I'm enjoying some quite time at home filled with lots of Scrapbooking. 
Today I have two layouts to share which I made with the New Kaisercraft paper collection True Love. This collection along with my layouts are now in the Bella Paperie store. 

I Love You to the Moon and Back

For this layout I used the True love papers My Love and My Baby (love these names!!)
This is a photo of my daughter when she was around 3 years old with our old cat.

I used lots of the gorgeous Bella Paperie flowers, lace, and pearls. 

On the background I used the Tim Holtz Flourish stencil and modelling paste along with some pink mists. To frame the photo I took a pink berry steam and moulded it into a circle, then  I wrapped a pink pearl string around it to add extra interest.

I have used Blue Fern Studios Chipboard pieces Memory Frames and Bits of Honey. Plus the Blue Fern embossing powder in Cotton Candy.

You Shine

On my second layout I used the other colours in this collection. True Love papers I used were My Sweetheart, My Precious, My Darling and Hearts

To add colour to this layout I used the Finnabair Mica Powders in Opal Gold Magic and Teal. Bella Paperie is now stocking the full range of these mica powders.
I also used some Inka Gold in Gold with a stencil to add extra details to the background.

The Inka Gold was added to these metal embellishment to help them stand out.

I used Blue Fern Studios Chipboard pieces in Circle Links and The Optimist Word Set, along with their embossing powder in 14 Karat. 

Thank you for visiting today and remember to head to Bella Paperie to get the materials I used today.

Swirlydoos December Kit 2nd Reveal

Hi everyone - Merry Christmas Eve!!!
Today I have more projects I made with the Swirlydoos Kit Clubs December 2015 Kit - All That Glitters.

To make this layout I started by applying texture paste though a circle stencil from my stash, then I added colour with the Pearl Ex mica powder in Rose Gold from the mediums add on kit along with some pink sprays from my stash. I coloured the Blue Fern Winter Dangles Chipboard (from the embellishment add on kit) with Inka Gold in Gold, I also mixed some water with the Inka Gold to flick on my background.  I used the Kaisercraft Sliver Bells Papers in Merry Xmas, Frosty and the coordinating sticker sheet. To embellish I used Petaloo Mini Burlap flowers in Antique Red and Vintage Velvet Mini flowers in White from the flower add on kit, plus a few flowers from my stash. From the embellishment add on kit I used the Pink Organza ribbon and the Kaisercraft pearls in Rose, the Darice Pink doily tape is from the main kit. From my stash I used white wire trim, gold leaves, chipboard title, cheesecloth and extra flowers.

Inspiration for this layout came from the Scrap Around The World December Mood Board - I loved the Pink and Gold together on this mood board

With what was leftover from my kit I put together these cards. I'm starting to make more cards lately, it is a great way to use up the bits and pieces that are left over after making layouts. Plus I don't used any mediums on my cards so they are quick and easy.

For this first card I used the Prima Victorian Christmas white leaves from the Flower add on kit, the Prima Grey Trim, Berries from the Sliver Berry Spray, Rhinestone trim. Plus I used some grey flowers from my stash.

On the second card I used Petaloo flowers from the flower add on kit, Bo Bunny lasercut snowflake chipboard, Berries from the silver berry spray, Grey lace, Rhinestone trim and sliver rhinestones.

Remember - 13 Arts Guest Design Project

Hi, I'm so happy today to share my first project for my guest design spot on the 13 Arts team. 
I love all 13 Arts product so making this layout was easy.
I've used a photo of my baby Nephew who had a Christmas photo shoot, these photos were too cute not to scrap 

I started this layout using the Holly Stencil with modelling paste, then I added colour to my layout with mists in Pastel Mint, Chalk Dark Brown and Chalk Burnt Sienna. I cut some pieces of paper from the Winter Tales Collection and layered them under my photo. I also cut two tags from the Christmas Tags paper and put them behind my photo. I layered on lots of flowers, leaves and chipboard, The Remember chipboard word is coloured with the Slash ink in Glitter Green. To finish off I splashed some Glitter Green Splash ink on the page and added some glitter and Mica flakes.

13 Arts Products Used

Blue Fern Chipboard Product - Techno Rings, and Checker Bits
Embossing powder in Sage and Poinsettia, Samps - Essential texture and Postal Texture

Christmas Cards for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, Unfortunately today is my final post for Scrap FX. Its time for me to move on and I'll be joining Blue Fern Studios for 2016.  I have absolutely loved getting to create with all the wonderful Scrap FX products for the last 14 months.

Today I have two Christmas cards to share with you using Decembers new release Christmas baubles, these are a perfect size to go on cards
P1060919 adjusted
I coloured the chipboard pieces the Stampendous embossing powder in Shabby White and Aged Gold.
I tied a piece of twine around the tops of the Baubles to give the effect that they were hanging from the cards. I cut the Flourish Corners Mini in half and used them to peak out from under my flowers. I then added the flowers, lace and pearls and I had two easy cards made.
The Papers, Lace and Flowers are all from Prima

First up in my layout for this months Sketch

To make this layout I used the Kaisercraft Sliver Bells Collection papers in Joy and Frosty plus the coordinating sticker sheet. For my background I used the Kaisercraft Festive Quarters stencil from the Mediums add on kit, then I added colour with the Pearl Ex mica powder in sliver (also from the medium add on kit) plus some grey sprays from my stash. I took the Bo Bunny laser cut snowflake chipboard pieces and primed them with white gesso, then I added some gel medium to stick on some white glitter. For my embellishing I used the Plastic snowflake, Kaisercraft rhinestones in Silver and the  Petaloo Vintage Velvet Poinsettia in White from the main Kit. From the embellishment add on kit I used the Prima Sliver leaves, Blue Fern Winter Page Dangles chipboard, Prima Trim, and  Grey lace. I added a few flowers from my stash as well.

Here is this months amazing sketch

For my second layout I've used a photo of my adorable baby Nephew. 

To make this I started by spraying on some Turquoise and Sliver mists from my stash, I used the flourish section on the Kaisercraft Festive Quarters Stencil (which came in the mediums add on kit) with texture paste. The I used the Bauble section of the same stencil with a Grey Gelato, then I added some random stamping on top. I used the Kaisercraft Silver Bells Paper in Carol and Wonderland, plus the coordinating sticker sheet and tag. To colour my chipboard title I used the Jacquard Lumiere 3D paint in Turquoise from the main kit. To embellish I used the Petaloo Vintage Velvet Peonies in Teal, The Petaloo Vintage Velvet Minis in White and the Kaisercraft mini roses from the Flower add on kit. The Prima Sliver leaves are from the embellishment add on kit and I added lots of the amazing bling that came all though the kits.

An finally today I have the Christmas decoration that came in the Project add on kit.

I started of by covering the snowflake from the Project add on kit with gesso before I added some white crackle paste. Next I added the Pearl Ex mica powder in Rose Gold (which came in the Mediums add on Kit) and water into the spray bottle that came in the same kit. I sprayed the mist onto the snowflake. And finally I gave the whole thing a coat of the Folk Art Extreme Glitter Paint in sliver - this is such pretty paint!!!! To embellish I used the sliver bells and crystal drops from the Project add on kit. I also used the Sliver berry spray from the embellishment add on kit along with some white and grey flowers from my stash. (sorry the photos aren't the best this was harder to photograph that I imagined)
