Love U2

These girls have been friends since babies, and while I had lots of photos of them when they were little, it's harder to get them now.
This page uses the March kit from The Paper Teapot, which is jam packed with great papers and embelliesπŸ’–
I used Colourblast shimmer cubes to ombre colour the word, and also flick a few little spatters. I didn't want to go overboard with paint on this one.
There's a great mix of Cocoa Vanilla, Pinkfresh and American Crafts to satisfy all tastes 😍Get yours now!

Some of the little details....

And here's the  full page! 
I just πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— that sketchy flower paper!
Go grab yourself a kit now!

One of the Family

I just love using these colours together, and the February Hip Kit provided the perfect papers and embellishments πŸ’–
Distress oxides are amazing and so simple to use, one of my favourite techniques at the moment is to lay a cut file over mixed media blends...
And what a great combo of ephemera, stickers, puffys, and epoxy flowers, hearts, birds, and bugs also!


This is the full layout...

which is a blend of these 2 sketches for the March challenge at Scrap Our Stash πŸ˜„

Chase the Wind

Sailing on Lake Taupo- check ✔
A beautiful day for a trip out to the Maori carvings, great host for the trip too ⛵⛵⛵

This is the second page from The Paper Teapot February kit - I love this paper, I just added a cut file and some cute little wood veneer sailboats that I embossed.

Dream Big

Love this girl, love this photoπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

I made this page for the Scrap the Girls February challenge - here's the sketch

I love the Pretty Little Studio papers vellum and embellies - so fresh feeling. I replaced the hearts with hexes, splashed around a bit of Distress Oxide ink and used a Cocoa Vanilla flower stamp from the More than Words collection 🌸🌸🌸

Happy Moments

Will I ever finish scrapping photos of these two? I hope not, I hope their friendship continues for many years yet πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

This is for the March stash challenge at Scrap Our Stash - to use the movie "Happy Go Lucky" as inspiration, plus an emoji from your stash.

Amy Tan's collections are always so happy so it was a no-brainer to use her phemera for this page.

And look!! No multimedia - no inks, sprays, pastes - nit even a solitary Nuvo drop!! So different from my usual, but a change is as good as a holiday πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Live what you Love

This page is for the great Blend A Sketch challenges over at Scrap Our Stash.

And a new photo even!
Here's the sketch challenge
I used the gorg Colourblast Australia Artist Inks for the vertical elements of the second sketch, and Pretty Little Studio Vellum and ephemera to create the clusters of the first sketch.

I couldn't resist adding a couple of Charm Creation hearts - yum yum yum πŸ’™πŸ’œ

Sweet Summer Days

I love this photo of Shiloh and one of her bffsπŸ’•
This page is from the new kits from The Paper Teapot, lots of yummy stuff in there! 

This is paper from the Pink Paislee Summer Lights part of the kit, with Echo Park stickers (LOTS of them!!), a Pinkfresh dyed tag, Some gorgeous ombre Thickers and Cocoa Vanilla puffy stickers.

Loved putting this one together - just couldn't stop adding things!!!

Love Out Loud

Wow - I only just took this photo last week and it's scrapped already!!
Mark is just a big kid always hiding and jumping out at us when we are on holiday.

This was at Cafe LÁrte in Taupo - loved all the mosaic furniture πŸ’“

This page is for the SCrap Our Stash February Stash challenge, to use the movie "Love Actually" as the inspiration, include the word "Love" in the title, and use twine.

I  mostly used the October 17 Hip Kit which was full of Pinkfresh Goodness, and Colourblast Australia Artist's Inks and Colour Pastes for the layering.

Thanks for visiting!

Peace Out

I don't think this is the first time I've scrapped this photo, but it just makes me so happy!

 This was for a DT assignment for the new challenges...

I found this a bit of a challenge to be honest - but then again, they're supposed to be! I guess it'll get easier the more I do πŸ˜‰
From the first sketch I used the idea of a semi circle (the shape of the flower garland) with the title around it, and from the second sketch I used the larger square (photo) and 3 smaller ones (the banner).
I also used flower rhinestones between the banner flags, and in each corner.

I used a mix of Shimmerz and Prima watercolours for the background, and most of the paper and embellies were from the September 17 Hip Kit. I love those little suede bows and all the Paige Evans paper and ephemera 😍

Winter is Coming

I'm really not a winter fan, except it gives me more time to read some of my favorite books!
Winter is Coming is the motto of House Stark, one of the families on which Game of Thrones is centred, so I documented my love of this series on my page πŸ˜„

This is for the new type Scrap Our Stash challenge, here 'tis...

This new 7dots paper range was perfect for it, I just added a little white paint, Colourblast shimmer and paste (with a Tim Holtz stencil) and a few diecut snowflakes. "winter" was a Lorilei Murphy cut file from  Hip Kit Club. The wolf head was a clip art that I fussy cut.
Thanks for the look!
