A weekend with " Breathtakingly Beautiful"

Helloooo..


I have been playing again :) 

This time it was for BoBunny's facebook page!! I had a fun creating this layout and was totally in my creative element.. I had my podcast playing, lollies on hand with a cold drink and my son was letting me play, so it was total bliss!!

I just love this photo of Abigail that I snapped a few months ago at a gorgeous church in town ! We were waiting for a relative's baptism to start and as the kids were playing I grabbed my iphone and kept taking photos until I got the right one. I am finding asking my kids to say their names bring out the most relaxed and natural facial expressions.. Otherwise they just looked so pained trying to smile ..

This layout was made with the new "Madeline" Collection by BoBunny .. sigh.. the colours are just so pretty!!

I even managed to play with my new Marion Smith Designs Bloom impressions tool to help shape the larger flowers on my page. It was so easy ( even my 3 year old was helping me at one stage) and I love the effect that it created. I can see that this will be a go to tool for me for a long time! If you love flowers and using dies then I highly recommend you check out the Bloom Impressions Tool.. 

So here is a few more close up's of my layout :)

I used the new BoBunny gold Glitter Paste to add a little sparkle to the flowers !! I love that stuff and use it all over the place :) 


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a fabulous day!!

Till next time 

Much love

A weekend with " Creative Sketches V3 layout"

Hellloooo...


I wanted to share a layout with you all that I made for the brand new Creative Sketches

I was given a fun sketch to create with and in the end the layout started to take its own direction. That is code for.. it turned out a little left field from the sketch lol..

I have had this picture of my children with our Australian Red Cattle dog that I adore, and I knew that I wanted to use the BoBunny Happy Tails collection to complete it. I could not decide which papers to use so in the end I decided to dig into the entire 6x6 paper pad and used my circle punch to create the background.

 I was surprised at how therapeutic it felt to punch and fold all those circles.

I love all the little cute embellishments that come in the Noteworthy packs in each of the collection..How cute is this doggy bone!! :)

A weekend with " 17 Turtles Guest Designer"

Helllooooo... ( echo echo) ha ha 

Yes it is I Bernii ( and one else get that ) 

I have been so super busy here with life in general, being a mum, working part time and then coming home to be a "present" mother to my two children all while trying to have a respectable looking home.. soooo I had to just stop blogging for the week and just take care on the home front. It was good in turn though as the Spring weather has truly arrived and I was motivated to wash all my walls in the house and clean out some cupboards, so some true Spring Cleaning was done :) 

Well I a little while ago I was asked my fellow BoBunny Design Team creative -Julianna, if I would like to be a Guest Designer for her blog using some of her newly created digital cut files. She did not have to ask me twice and I jumped at the chance! 

If you have not seen Julianna's blog then please click over and check out right HERE. From there you can also get a direct link to her etsy shop where you can see so many cool and different designs!! 

I of course was drawn to her floral designs and below you can see a sneak of the layout I created for her blog.. If you want to see the rest then please head on over to HERE and take a peek ...

A weekend with " Vintage Bliss Project Life"

Helloooo..

Well the kids are back to school for the last term of the year. That means summer is well and truely on the way and I am so exited about that!! I LOVE Summer. I love the heat, balmy nights, parties , the beach, sunsets, cold beers and swimming pools.. I love it all!!

Any who I have been making an effort to chip away at last years Project Life album and created this layout using the gorgeous Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss collection. I have been hoarding this collection and though about time I use it up. So I a created this spread and then will create some layouts while I have all the papers out on my desk. 

So let me show you what I made :)

I love using collections as all the hard work coordinating is done for me and saves me so much scrappin time.

I am lucky enough to be apart of a Facebook group for Australian Project Lifers and it was in this group that a fabulous lady created the card birth announcement card for the new Prince.

A weekend with " MAMBI cards "

Hellloooo..

I just wanted share with you a couple of cards that I made using different MAMBI cards that I created with the pocket pages cards... They are versatile and love the little sentiments on the pocket cards that can so easily be used on gifting cards. 

So these are three different cards that I made.. I even managed to create a mini banner using up some of the pocket page cards. 

The Birthday Girl card using Me & My Big Ideas project Life cards.


For this card I dug out my dies and my cuttlebug and created a flower using up some the "Teenage" pocket pages collection. 


This next card is very simple, and that is because I really wanted the "Totally Love" card to stand out and be the feature.. I simply added some slits to the side of the card and and wove through some white seam binding tape and tied a sweet little bow.  



I love having a little collection of cards here on the ready to hand out to loved ones on special occasions.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Till next time 

Much love

A weekend with " Too the Moon and Back"

Helloooo...

You know I LOVE colour and I LOVE the way it can make a person feel.. I love how certain colours can evoke all different emotions and memories of certain times and places..Well this layout makes me smile and and happy everytime I see it!! With those splashes of yellow I just an't help it :) 

So let's take a peek at what I made..

I love the grid style layout and I never tire of this style. I love how using this style of layout I can use multiple bright colours with out it looking over crowded or out of place.

I used the MAMBI Pocket Page cards to complete this layout and some of the MAMBI chips that I also had here in my stash..

This is another favourite layout of mine .. I adore anything now that has myself with my precious children on them.. That is one thing that I certainly love now about "selfies" .Finally I am in the picture with my children.

A weekend with " Fancy Pants Designs - Featured Artist"

Helllooo..


I have some fabulous news to share with you!! 

I was very lucky enough to win the Fancy Pants Designs September Sketch challenge. This means that I have been featured in their latest FREE e-mag which you can find through there site HERE. It also means that I was their featured artists for the month and there is a little write up about myself. 

If you wanted to check out my entry in more detail you can check out THIS blog post. 





I even managed to quickly create another layout to feature in the newsletter using the " As you wish" collection. It was perfect for this not so stellar photo of my daughter and myself on her very first day of prep school induction. ( it was the only photo from the day and I REALLY wanted to scrap this moment)  The sentiments within the collection were perfect to reflect the start of her school life.

The flowers from the "Today"  paper in this collection was just calling my name to be fussy cut . I added some leaves that I die cut on my portrait. I bought these cut files HERE

Then to add some extra sparkle I went through with my glitter glue and went over the flower centres and some of the petals.

I do not normally do dark coloured back grounds as I do prefer the white, but I am really pleased I tried something different this time around, I love it.
