Show us your stuff - June

Show us your Stuff this month is a challenge to create what you like! I loved this Ken Oliver colour burst paper and took it from there! I added some mixed media to the background but didn’t want to change it too much because of the awesome colours that were already there. I have used two Charms creations on my page - a heart and a tab, and a flair from Funky Flair Studio for my handmade items.

Funky flair studio - May

My share for Funjy Flair Studio this month is a layout with some Artvo photos of both my girls in an interactive display. I have used 7 dots studio paper and I thought the musical flair was perfect for this page!

Kraft Plus - April

This month at Kraft Plus we have a recipe challenge. It certainly made me think about what I was going to do -especially the something ‘borrowed’.

 This is what I used:

Something old - dandelion diecut is from an old book (The Great Gatsby).
Something new - I used Flutterby designs 'We run the world kit'.
Something borrowed - I ‘borrowed’ the use of the big shot at Scrap 2 relax at our monthly crop night.
Something blue - I used Dylusions after midnight paint on my background and blue flair from Funky flair studio.

Funky flair studio - April

My layout for Funky Flair Studio this month has a couple of photos of my girls from Artvo when we visited earlier this year. I have lots of photos to scrap, so this is one of many to come! I used the colours in the photo to create a mixed media background, using watercolours, paint and sprays. Thanks for dropping by!

For Show us your stuff this month, it's all about me! Well, you have you scrap a page about yourself, but my page is about me! 😂 
The photo is from a few years ago, when my eldest was just a newborn, it was taken on my 33rd birthday. 🎂
I have lots of handmade items on my layout including a charms heart from Charms creations, a flair from Funky Flair Studio, a button from Burdy's Embellies and a felt heart from Rainbow Splendour.

Funky flair studio - March

I have used some of the Indigo Blue kit and two gorgeous flairs on my page this month. The photo is of my youngest after having a blue frozen drink and as you can see it turned her tongue blue, matching her gorgeous blue eyes!
 To grab some flair for yourself head to the website If you are lucky enough to have sunshine like we are here today, I hope you get a chance to enjoy it!

Here are some close ups of the flairs!

I had added quite a few layers which you can see in the close ups below. I have used Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart papers, the black butterflies are from D-lish Scraps and flairs from Funky Flair Studio flairs. Thanks for dropping by!

Show us your stuff - February

Show us your Stuff have a sketch for this month’s challenge and I decided to go with a beach theme. I have used Rainbow Splendour’s Daydream Kit along with a few other bits and pieces from my stash.

Kraft Plus February

For this challenge, I immediately thought of these photos of my daughter dancing at a friends party. At the time, she was fairly reserved and didn’t participate much at parties, so it was nice to see her getting involved. We were able to capture her twirling around and managed to get these great shots. So I thought they would be perfect for this ‘dancing queen’ page. I used the colours of her dress in my mixed media background and the quilling paper at the bottom of the page too.

Show us your stuff - January

I am very excited to share that I am on the Show us your Stuff (SUYS) Design Team for 2018. This is my layout for the January challenge.
I was drawn to bright colours and the black and white stripes and I wanted to include the quote in my layout also.  For my handmade item, I have used a Charms creation circle which I have turned into a lollipop by adding a toothpick.  🍭 

Head over to the Show us your Stuff Facebook Page to participate in the challenge! 

A close up of the Charms circle. 

And a close up of the quote.

Art Journal - Just Breathe

My very first art journal arrived in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t wait to get started! I didn’t really have an exact idea of the finished product, but I am really happy with how it turned out. I found the calico heart which I included on the left side and ‘Just Breathe’ is a reminder to take deep breaths.
