Kaisercraft Secret Garden Collection for Bella Paperie

Hi there, the new Kaisercraft collection Secret Garden has come out and is now in store at Bella Paperie. As usual for a collection I love to make two completely different coloured layouts so I don't get bored and this collection is no different. It has lots of pretty colours, pink, blue, green, grey and white. Here is what I created - my layouts along with most of the materials I used to create them are now in the Bella Paperie Store.


I loved these pink and grey colours together, and it went so lovely with this old pic of my daughter - I think she's about three here. 

I cut the die cut doily paper (Spring) from the collection and arranged my compositions on the top and bottom of the page.

I picked all the pink and grey pieces out of the die cut collectables pack and used most of those along with my usual generous amount of flowers.

Secret Garden Products Used:
Papers- Spring, Wildflower, & Gate
Collections Pack
Sticker Sheet

 You Are My Happiness.

On this layout I when for the opposite colours, I had this pic of my little model with some leaves behind her so that was perfect for this page.

For the extra butterfly wings I used the Kaisercraft clear butterfly stickers, I stuck them to the papers I was using and then fussy cut them out.

Instead of using modeling paste through my stencil I used blue and green micro beads mixed with  heavy gel medium instead.  I love this extra texture!

Secret Garden Products Used:
Papers - Bloom, Posy, Gate & Praire

Cherish - GD for Couture Creations

Hi everyone - here is my second GD layout for Couture Creations. In this layout I went with the gorgeous purple colours that are in the Hearts Ease collection.

Here is how I put this together

First I cut 4 die cuts from each of the Couture Creations Hearts Ease Intricutz Dies - Mandshurica C0724312 & Scrolled Tomentosa C0724310 with white cardstock

Then I used the Couture Creations Hearst Ease Embossing Folder 5 x 7 - Lilliputana Curtain C0724375 with two of the Hearts Ease Papers (Small Pansies & Pansy Journalling). I distressed the papers to enhance to embossed images.

I layered these embossed papers with pieces of the Pansy Dressing Paper to create a mat for my photo. I'm using the Pansy Damask paper as the background.

I made a pattern with my die cuts and glued them down on my background

I filled in the gaps with a floral stencil and modeling paste

I glued down my photo mat and photo using pieces of cardboard to prop up my layers and give my page dimension, Next I layered on all my flowers and embellishments. I used the Couture Creations bulk white flowers in a range of different varieties. I kept the flowers white and splashed my page with some purple and white sprays. To finish off I added some purple rhinestones and glass beads.

Couture Creations Products Used:
Hearts Ease 12x12 Paper Pad C0724170

Baby Layouts for Scrap FX

Hi all, today I have my projects featuring Scrap FX's new release products. This month it's all about babies, and since mine is now 8 I had to dig through my old photos to find some baby pics of her. 
Here is what I created.


Who can't resist a sleeping baby - so cute. I kept this layout soft with light pink colours and used my new favourite products the Heart Strings and White Feathers

The chipboard was mainly coloured with Stampendous embossing powder in Shabby White, Shabby Pink and Aged Rose. I coloured the little birds on the Baby Banner with Gelatos

I fussy cut out the White Feathers and tucked them in under my flowers

Scrap FX products on this layout:

Tender Moments

I loved this pic of my girl sitting in daffodils, so I altered the photo to make it black and white leaving only the flowers the original colour. 

I used the white Tag Set to tuck behind the photo. I coloured the Daffodils with a mix of sprays and embossing powders. The rest of the chipboard pieces I covered with the Stampendous Shabby White embossing powder (my favourite). Again I cut out the White Feathers and tucked them in with my flowers.

Maja's Vintage Baby Collection for Bella Paperie

Hi there, today I have two layouts I made for the Bella Paperie Store using the new Vintage Baby collection from Maja Designs. This collection is so gorgeous and it gave me a good reason to dig out some baby pics of my daughter since the first time I scrapped them I was only starting out at scrapbooking and my layouts were not very good. The collection is also very versatile with a range of pinks, blues and neutrals that don't need to be used on baby based projects.   

Sweet Little Girl

On this layout I used the Maja Vintage Baby papers - Flowers For Mum, Precious & Special Delivery.
For the background I used one of the new Kaisercraft stencil - Damask Quarters, along with pink and blue mists. Then I loaded the page up with loads of flowers, lace and trinkets.

A Fathers Love

On this page I went with the neutral tones in the collection for my attempt at a more masculine layout :) Hahaha I can't stop myself from adding so many flowers and pearls.
I used the Vintage Baby papers - Special Moment, New Arrival, Expecting & First Teddy Bear. I spent awhile on the background using stencils, modeling paste, sprays, distress inks and stamps. Then I added my usual generous amount of embellishing. The chipboard piece is a new release piece from Scrap FX. 

These layouts along with most of the materials I used to make them can now be found in the Bella Paperie Store

Thanks for stopping by today.
