All that Glitters for Bella Paperie

Hi today I have two layouts I made for Bella Paperie with the new Kaisercraft Collection All That Glitters. This is such a pretty glittery collection - very girly, so of course I loved it. I made these layouts in early January and have been hanging onto them patiently waiting of the collection to be released, now finally I can share!!!!!! 
First up is my pink and gold page titled: Happy
For this page I used All That Glitters Papers: Twinkle, Dazzle, Chevron Glitter & Golden Butterflies. As well as the All That Glitters Sticker Sheet and Collectables.  

 My second layout uses the turquoise and gold colours in the collection and is titled: Perfect
 For this page I used All That Glitters Papers: Glow, Radiate, Polka Dot Glitter & Golden Flowers. As well as the All That Glitters Sticker Sheet and Collectables.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope this inspires you to go get your glitter out :)

My pages and most of the materials I used to make them can now be found in the Bella Paperie store.

February Challenges for Prima

Hi, Happy Tuesday. This week is dragging by, I'm super busy at work which usually makes the time go fast but not this week for some reason. Nearly halfway to the weekend though so I'm looking forward to that. Here are two of the things I made during this past wet weekend, I had some extra time to complete the Prima Challenges for this month.

First up is my take on the Build-A-Page Sketch

I then fussy cut out my coloured image and stuck to my canvas that I had coloured with the same color bloom sprays.

Love & Laughter for Sketchabilities Sktech #133

Hi, today I have my layout for the Sketchabilities sketch #133. This is a photo of my little Niece, she lives in NZ and I haven't meet her yet but my brother puts video's of her up on facebook at least once a week. She just started crawling so I'm sure she'll  be starting to get into mischief.
My papers are Marion Smith's Garment District Collection - Alterations, Manhattan and Blush, Scrap FX Chipboard Title.

Here is the Sketchabilities sketch, check out the blog to see what the other designers did with this sketch and have a go yourself.  This sketch is sponsored by 13 Arts and all the 13 Arts designers have designed a page too.

Beach Layouts for Scrap FX + Video

Hi, it's my day on the Scrap FX blog today to show off the new release products. This month a whole lot of new wordlets were released and I choose two of the beach themed ones to base my pages on. These pics are of my daughter from a holiday down to the Gold Coast last year and they are some of my favourite photos so I've scraped similar photos before and I will probably use them on layouts to come because I love them so much. I decided to make two layouts with very similar colours but very different layouts, and I also made a video to go along with my second layout.

Sandy Beaches

 I used Prima's Cigar Box papers for this layout, ripping strips paper and layering them on the top half of the page to look like waves. In to the layers of paper I tucked pieces of lace and the Wave Border chipboard  which I painted blue and toped with modeling paste to look like real waves. I used the Random Dots Stencil and Wood Grain Stencil with modeling paste on my background along with sandy and teal coloured sprays.
 The Mermaid was my favourite piece of chipboard, I coloured her body with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical in Fuzzy Naval Peach, her hair is fine gold glitter.  I carefully layered sequins on her tail to look like scales and I used modeling paste to give her tail texture before a sprayed it aqua.
 Mr octopus got a coating of blue glitter and two pearl eyes.
 With this piece of starfish chipboard I covered it with yellow glass beads
 This piece of starfish chipboard was covered with gold glass glitter, the Sandy Beaches wordlet was coloured with sprays
 I covered the shell chipboard with gesso then painted it to match the page, I also added some real shells to the page as well.
