Made with Memories and foam mount?

Hi another day another post and the kids go back to school tomorrow can you believe it, its Term 4 !!!! So today's share is another one for Made with Memories who are currently doing a Design Team call so check out the details on there blog.

This is another layout using the beautiful Kaisercraft Butterfly kisses range, and alot of foam mount let me tell you. I do from time to time do these layouts that take alot of time and a far amount of planning on how I am going to do the layers. For this layout I nearly used a whole roll of foam mount, theres nothing worse than doing layers and having them collapse.

Made with Memories - Butterfly Kisses

Ok the other day I was telling you that I did 5 layouts for Made with Memories, I thought it was time to share some of them since it is already the 12th October !!!!! Christmas is sneaking up on us argggghhhhhh!!!

I must say when I got this range for my design team pack Butterfly Kisses by Kaisercraft I was a little scared, as people who know me know I don't often do purple, not keen on it and usually avoid it the best I can, and I know I have a girl but still, another thing I try to avoid is Barbie pink so imagine my reaction to this!!!

But I stand before you a changed woman, I loved working with this colour combo..... you wont see me all the time work with it but I LOVE this range.

Bucket list, wish list.....

With school holidays nearly over here in the west, and the Christmas holidays fast approaching (72 days and not counting) it has made me think..... "ohhhhhhhhh I would love to go on a holiday", I think of all my travel I have done and how fortunate I have been. I now pine for those days to be so again. I have my "bucket list " of travel destinations once my kids have grown...

So this layout for Sawyer's Place is a reminder to those dreams and the "wish" of those.....

Sawyer's Place Design Team layouts.......

Now to share some Sawyer's Place Design Team layouts..... and they are both very different !!!

The First layout shows off one on my most favourite washi tape, the pink crochet one, what can I say love it to bits!!! I love that you can join the pattern to make large panels, that allows you do run it through the die cut machine. 


"Everyday Moments"
Sawyer's Place washi tape; Pink vertical Stripe, Pink horizontal stripe, Gold Script,
White/ pink dots, Pink crochet. Bo Bunny double dot pp, doily, Mr Hueys mist,
Heidi Swapp Polaroid, Studio Calico pp, Prima mini Alphas.

The second layout is something totally different, I have decided that I need to do more layouts about things that have been happening in my life and that means taking photos sometimes of things, this layout is just one of those things.

Purple Pumpkin October Sketch

These holidays I must admit I have been having fun creating loads of different layouts and getting into my many jars of embellishments and at the same time dusting them off...... So I have been raiding my Purple Pumpkin jar and starting to get through some of my photos as well.

Purple Pumpkin..... Cheeky Monkey

2 weekends ago a couple of my girlfriends and I went away for a couple of nights for a girly get away, the intention was to get alot of kid free, husband free scrapping done, but it turn out to be a great weekend full of great food, wine and gossip. Some pages where done but not alot but it was just what I needed to get rid of the scrappers block that had been hanging around for about 3 weeks.

So with this weekend away I had my kits all packed and some embellishments that I really wanted to use rather than them sit there in the jar, Purple Pumpkin was one of those.

Sawyer's Place catch up...

I just realized that I have been a slack blogger..... there are entire layouts that have been shared with my design teams but not with you. So I will remedy that for the next couple of days. As you all know I am a huge lover of Sawyer's Place washi tape, it is my "go to" thing when I am planning a layout or trying to find that finishing touch. From time to time however I set myself little challenges to see what I can do with washi.

This layout is one of those.....

Not one piece of pattern paper has been used!!! I have laid out the washi on some white cardstock and lined up the pattern to make panels of "pattern paper" and then I have diecut them or made them into banners. Another thing to know about washi is you can stamp on it or sew over it, also if you want to make a plain colour darker try layering it.

I was lucky for the month of September to work with For the Record 2 by Echo park, I must say I wanted to do a boys and girls layout this month because I feel I have been always doing pink lately..... and once again I am loving YELLOW!!!! it must be the warmer weather.
