Weekend with " Wow Look"

Helloooo...


Well I have been having fun playing with the bright and fun Bella Blvd papers that have been sitting on my desk.. 

I am finding that I am trying my hardest to use up collections while they are out, as I have so many paper collections here I could open up my very own store !! I am not too sue if that is a good thing lol.. 

So I am trying to hardest to use up as much as what I have on hand.. and it is not too hard when the papers are this fun!!

I started this layout by sewing the strips of left over papers down the side of my layout. I then left if for a couple of days as it was the start of the work well.. 

Well in the mean time my kittens had made their way onto my work space and decided to eat a biscuit on my layout..and not only was it on my layout, but it was on the white space of the layout..

So I had little marks left of the layout as I was madly trying to get the biscuit pieces off my layout!!  to help cover up those smudges I decided to use the Distress Stain in a few colours and just add splashes of colour across the page..

It worked a treat and I can not even tell there was a mess up on my layout..

A weekend with " I ♥ Summer"

Hellooooooo




Well I have a ton of layout here that I have stacked up wanting to share with you.. 



And I have finally managed to find some time to take the photos and now to blog them.. So it is now a process of getting this all done.. 



So I wanted to start of by sharing this layout I made of my two little babes.. we took a trip to our local park in town on a gorgeous Spring / Summer afternoon .

 I have been trying to take them out as much as possible while the weather is so gorgeous .



I love summer layout by Bernii Miller using Bella Blvd collection.


I used my Couture Creations dies to help create this layout and my Tim Holtz rosette die to create the centres. I love doing this and creating multicolored flowers. This seems to be a little love of mine right now actually!!

A weekend with " Car Classic for BoBunny"

Helllooo.... 


Well I have a share of a BoBunny layout I created using the super fun Wild Card collection.. They were a perfect match of a photo of the kids and I in front of a vingtage car at the Brisbane State Museum. 

The kids had never been before and it just so happened that the Scrapbooking expo was also on the weekend we went down.. ( I know - total coincidence right ??)

The kids just loved the museum and we got to see so many different fun things.. But just as we walked into the centre we spotted this little gem..

I decided to somehow go with a circular type theme with the layout, so I used a lot of the chipboard and noteworthy pieces to use across the page.

A weekend with " My Star layout"

Hellooooo.....

I stuffed up this layout.. 

Yup

I started off this layout  with a crisp white background. I was loving how it was going and how all the bright colours well just working so well together. 
But then when I stood back towards the end of the layout, it just needed something a little more. 

Sooooo

I decided to add a little light grey watercolour towards the outer edges of the star.. I really didn't like the look of it.. it was just so blah.... 

So I tired to fix it!! hmmm this is where is went down hill for me ...

The grey edges stood out way to much so I decided to colour the whole background instead to try and make it blend.. I am still not sure if that was the right thing to do. But it is done now.

So to try and help blend in the background a little more I splattered around some of the grey Studio Calico ink..

I am thinking now that it is not so bad and the more that I look at the photo of my little star, it makes me smile and utterly happy. That has to count for something right ??

Well thanks so much for stopping by... 

Till next time

A weekend with " Buddy layout for Bobunny"

Hellloooo..

Welcome to another Friday ..

Well it is time to share my BoBunny social media layout that I created for them this week using the " Wild Card"  collection. 

These photos of my son and his father would have to be one of my favourites of them together. Although my ex husband and I are no longer together I still think it is important to record those memories.. not for me, but for my son. I KNOW he will look back at these one day and cherish this layout.. It just shows how much he adores his daddy and wants to be just like him, even down to the clothes he wears. 

I am at the stage now that I scrapbook photos like this of my ex husband without crying or falling apart thinking about the " what ifs" . It took me a long time and I am so glad I did not go and throw out all of the photos out of anger or sadness.. 

So on a lighter note here are some pictures :)

A weekend with "Hey Santa Baby"

Helloooo..


Well I thought I would share with you my very last Scrapbooking Memories Magazine " Masters Challenge"  for the American Crafts challenge. 

We were sent some of their patterned papers from their Christmas collection and some of the pretty glitter snowflakes..

I decided  I wanted to use all of the papers that I was sent, so decided to create a chevron background . I also used the Maggie Holmes bow die - which I just love using as much as possible..

I decided to contrast the stitch with red thread.. I was a little nervous as I knew any mistakes would show up.. I think it turned out ok though :)

A weekend with " Love This! " Misc Me for BoBunny.

Hellooo there!!!

I decided to pull out the brighter colours from the double dot range to go with these fun photos from our day out at the park with the kids.

 I kept the Misc Me spread fairly simple this time around as the Double Dot papers were so bright and vibrant in colour. I also created little " Flowers" on my layout, by using my circle punch, folding the circle into fours, and then snipping out little petals. I love adding these to so many of my projects for extra pops of colours.
