A layout for The Flying Unicorn February Kit Of The Month

Hi everyone! 

Back again today to share with you a layout I created for The Flying Unicorn using their February  kit Of The Month. 

Unfortunately this kit and MOST of the monthly kits and add ons, have sold out :( In fact they sell out so quickly that The Flying Unicorn has started a system where you can now pre order the kits a week or 2 before they are released. You get a sneak peek of them in the newsletter and if you like what you see then you order it. Check out the details for next month's pre order HERE

You will find The Flying Unicorn in lots of places. Check out the:
 ==> forums HERE 
==>website and online shop HERE 
==> blog HERE 
==>Facebook HERE 

Are you interested in FREE classes, FREE live tutorials, FREE tips, ideas and techniques? Well then you NEED to go to The Flying Unicorn's UStream Channel right HERE because there is something being shown every other day!! 

This is what the February kit looked like! 

Now here is a layout I created with this kit..













keep an eye out for the next round of pre orders at The Flying Unicorn!

Thanks for coming by!

7 Dots Studio February Challenge

Hello friends! 

I hope this post finds you well. 

Back today to share with you my latest project for 7 Dots Studio and it is for the February challenge with the theme "Hearts". Today is also the last post that I make for 7 Dots Studio and this is sad for me as it is only because of life changes, time restrictions and going back to work soon that  I have begun to let go of my Design Team spots :( 

I still enjoy creating, I still love getting out all my goodies and playing but ... there is just no time anymore. I am not saying it is for good... just slowing down even more and we will see. 

Please check out the 7 Dots Studio website HERE 
and please check out the stockists for your country HERE 

This time I have used the simply stunning Destination Unknown collection designed by Dee Dee Catron for 7 Dots Studio.. 

This is a little of what it looks like ..



This is another of my my favourite photos which for some reason again is very bright ! This photo is a special one as it is at the park in winter , down the road from our new house. We had not moved in yet and but we were getting to know the area . 

As the theme for the challenge is "Hearts" I have used the word in my title and also used some die cut elements shaped in hearts and scattered around the page. 



I created circles with the stamp set from the same collection 
I then coloured them in with Gelatos. 


 I also used the Elements mask together with modelling paste to create texture in the background.

A card for Prima!


Hi everyone! Today I am sharing with you a card that I made for Prima Marketing with a focus on Color Bloom Sprays. 


In this card here I used the beautiful vintage coloured Bloom Sprays to accentuate the golden microbeads I used in the background. The beads popped as soon as I added some Color Blooms to them. I also used a lighter colour in the background which I added with a brush and watered it down just to cover some of the areas. 










Materials List
 Color Bloom Spray Sultry Shimmer Gilded #573911, Color Bloom Spray Vintage Metal Worn Leather #573829, Color Bloom Spray Vintage Metal Tea Stain #573836, Art Ingredients Microbeads Copper #962579, Metal Die Doily #572785, Memory Hardware Parisian Ruffle Trim #990473, Memory Hardward Glass Pearls #990398, Memory Hardware Rosette Trim #990466, The Archivist 6x6 paper pad #990268

A layout for 7 Dots Studio

Hello friends! 

I hope this post finds you well. 

Back today to share with you my latest project for 7 Dots Studio

Please check out the 7 Dots Studio website HERE 
and please check out the stockists for your country HERE 

This time I have used the simply stunning Thoughts Keeper collection ..


 

I have no idea why the photo is over exposed like that! I took many shots in many different angles and it would just show up like that lol oh well. 
I really did like this particular photo. It is one that captures a moment while we were on a holiday in Melbourne last year. It is at Federation Square and it pretty much sums up our holiday... Sofia being a wriggly worm and everyone trying to contain her LOL 



OK for the base I used Thoughts Keeper No3 paper and I cut up some squares of the same paper to build my background as you can see in the image below. 


I also used the stamp set from Thoughts Keeper to stamp in the background. 



I added the gorgeous tags from the Thoughts Keeper collection which include some beautiful sayings on them. 

I added some chipboard and some flowers and finished off with some gold mist :)

A new layout for The Scrapbook Diaries

Hello! I am excited to be back today to share with you my next layout for The Scrapbook DiariesBesides having an AMAZING online store , they also sell Designer Kits and have a very inspiring blog. There is no Design Team as such, but the owner invites designers from around the world to create projects that  ALWAYS includes a video/stepxstep tutorial and essentially create their own "Designer Kit". 

There are no subscriptions to anything. You just visit the store here and choose what page kit you would like. With each kit you get the tutorial as I mentioned, as well as enough materials to create TWO layouts. You can choose from different options such as the full kit that will include EVERYTHING or a couple of other options that include less items in case you already have some of the things included. 


So here is the layout I created this month. 


If you like the look of this layout and wish to recreate something like it, you will find everything that is needed PLUS a step x step video in the kit HERE

7 Dots Studio January challenge

Hey there guys!

January's challenge over at 7 Dots Studio has now gone live and this time the theme is "Appreciate The Little Things"

Please check out the 7 Dots Studio website HERE for more details 
and please check out the stockists for your country HERE 

Today I used the brand new Thoughts Keeper collection designed by Olga Heldwein for 7 Dots Studio and here is what it looks like!

 



Here is my layout with this collection ..


I was really inspired by the warm and vintage like colours in this paper and the soft colours in my picture to create a layout about a simple lazy Saturday morning at our house with all 3 little kids watching TV. This is SUCH a little thing that happens in every day life in every home but i do often stop and think that there will come a time all too soon that this will not be such a common occurrence. So even though weekend mornings can be so hectic these are the little moments I want to try and remember :)
