A Sweet Life for Scrappingclearly

Good morning I am here today for Scrappingclearly with my last post for the month..... seriously where has the time gone? Anyway this layout I think is going into one of those my favourite categories, I love the warm tones, the golden touches and the photo just makes me happy!!! Have you got a layout like that?

Love using the Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss Instragram 4x4 card transparency, its perfect to use in your negative space in your photo without taking anything away from the photo.

Who doesnt love gold? These Studio Calico Lemonlust Doilies are stunning and great value with 3 different sizes in one pack, so why dont you grab some for your next project? They are in store now!!!

  Cut your Instagram Frames in half to add an instant layered effect to your layout.

Inspired - Amy Tangerine

Good morning, I am here today sharing with you a layout I have just done for fun!!! I love my job and I love when I get the odd layout into the mix for '' just because'', these are needed to kick your mojo into overdrive and its great for your soul.

This layout happened after my visit to my local Spotlight store to meet Amy Tangerine for the first time, and to think I almost didnt go..... Why you ask? It was sports carnival day for my son and the time that Amy was here meant I had to leave early..... ahhhhh that pull of being a parent and balancing out your wants and there needs!!! But I made some peace with it my other half was there and taking photos and it allowed my son to fill me in and tell me what he did and was feeling so rather than assuming what I was observing I got to hear from him the actually was going on..... 

I must say Amy Tangerines enthusiasm is contagious and she is so genuine and inspiring.

Your Creative Wings

Good Morning , creativity, my cup is over flowing and I cant say its a bad thing really and its been awhile since this has happened (wish it would happen more often). I am here today to share a layout for Your Creative Wings Chipboard 

This layout was one I shuffled the papers around for ages then something just clicked then it just flowed......

''She Follows Her Heart''
Websters Nested pp and stickers, doilies,  Your Creative Wings Floral Arrows Crossed

I always do journalling but your not losing your mind in thinking when? I often either do it hidden or I add it in after I have shared it with you all. I know that you all love to read it but I share so much of my kids life online that I do keep this bit  private as I want something special just for them when they look at there albums, its important to write on your pages!!! I cant stress that enough......

How stunning is this piece? A handy idea is to bend the ends of the arrows to make them 3D.

Why dont you go grab this stunning piece? In store now!!!!

Till next time, have a creative day.

So Pretty for Scrappingclearly

Good Morning I am here for Scrappingclearly today to share some transparency love!!! I am sure many of you like myself love a good transparent sheet of paper but struggle whether with ideas or should I use it all or will I hoard it because its beautiful.....

Just a handy tip Pink Paislee they have a plastic protection layer on it, dont do what I did and stick everything down (yes and sewn it down) and realize that ohhhhhh you can peel it off !!!!!

Something nice to do is make a shaker box with a transparency from the Instagram 4x4 cards, just grab your sewing machine and stitch it on....

Your Creative Wings

Good Morning, how are you all? Half way through the month and its always a mad dash with trying to balance life with blogging and design team commitments... but its always a good thing to get creative right? 

I am here today to share with you another layout for Your Creative Wings chipboard. 

''Love You''
Websters Nested pp & Stickers, Prima Flowers, Gold Doily
Your Creative Wings Frame and Key to My Heart Charm set

One little tip when painting your chipboard is look at spray painting it.... this chipboard literally took 2 mins to paint, I used a British Paints Gold spray paint got it at Bunnings and I use it all the time!!!! I love using spray paint because of time efficiency, and it also doesnt make the chipboard too wet when you need to pop it out of its negative.

Till next time have a creative day

Scrappingclearly Moodboard reveal

Good Morning I am here today to share with you my take in this months Scrapping Clearly Moodboard challenge, and what a challenge it was well at least for me.... but thats the whole point right?  I must say I do love board itself I was so proud of it when I created it for the design team, it might be a case of intimation maybe??? 

To make it eaiser on myself, I chose 2 of the main colours (teal and navy), a cream wood pattern piece of paper and I love the rope.... and went with a nautical style layout.

What do you do when you start a moodboard, please share in the comments!!!

Add water to your page before you paint on the Heidi Swapp Colorshine it will allow more of a free flowing watercolour technique. 

I love the clear embellishments that you get in the Pink Paislee Atlas Ephemera pack.

For long flicks of white gesso, just water it down a bit and use a large flat tipped paint brush.

Color Shine Navy

 I cant wait to see what your tips are and more importantly what you create based on this months moodboard!!! You will go into the running for a $20 store voucher, and dont forget we now accept art journals for the monthly moodboards.

Till next time have a creative day.
