Sawyers Place

Remember last week.... I was talking about using your stash for a couple of layouts rather than once and then back into the stash, today I want to share this theory..... yesterday I show you the Sawyer's Place Pink Insanity Script Washi tape, today I want to show you the stunning Navy one but using the same paper range and how  with a quite change, you can get different results.

Savvy Big June Sketch

This month I thought I would change up how I work..... rather than leave the fun stuff till the end of the month and then try and scramble to try and fit it all in and share it all and bombard my followers with the madness. Today I am sharing with you Scrapbook Savvy's Big June sketch. This is a perfect one to get all your little leftovers out and use rather than hoarding them for a ''one day'' moment.... come on I cant be the only one that does that?

Sawyers Place

Feeling creative of late and more importantly have made it a little mission to try and use some of the stash, rather than either using once and put it on the shelf to move onto something else. I have a bit of a clean up on my shelves last Sunday and it took 6 hrs, but now its organised and more importantly I can see what I have and its now working the way that I currently work. 

Today I thought I would share with you a layout that I am beyond happy with, it combines my favourite product and my favourite technique... WASHI and FUSSY CUTTING!!!

Hello:) At the beginning I want to say thank you to all who sent their applications, you put a lot of time and heart to show us yourself and your artwork. You can imagine how hard is was to choose only few designers from over 80 talented applicants - amazing people have applied and I want to thank you with all my heart for that, so many wonderful people want to cooperate with us and this is really an honor.

Dreaming of the warmer weather, well sort of....

I am not a huge fan of summer its not because I dont want to be, but it seems to not be a huge fan of me, well the sun that is. But when I am brave and do venture out to the sun its always to the beach. So with this in mind the recent Scrapbooking Top 50 cyber crop mood board challenge was perfect to get another summer layout done.

This is where just for fun I like to try things that are different and just have a play. This time I decided to use a whole sheet of vellum and get creative with some sewing.
