Got to love Heidi....

Good morning hope your Easter Long Weekend is going well so far, we are about to hit the garden again to dig out some garden beds and to continue filling the veggie patch, I must remember to take some pics and share with you. 

Today I am here with another stash buster layout, this time with some Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic papers, which to be honest I am hoarding because I love, love , love them!!!

Going back into the stash....

Good morning, finally its the Easter break, with the kids home for 5 days then they go back, I have to admit they really need to have this break as they are all tired and at their wits end so not much happening around here I am afraid for Easter,but that cant be a bad thing right?

Today I am sharing with you a layout using some old Maggie Holmes paper and I cant believe I have this much especially the ephemera left in the stash. So time to work this range a little bit more it seems and to find what else I can use in this process. Like my little linen bag..... that had these in my stash for at least 6 yrs - cant even remember where I got them from!!! But I love it holds my journalling and all i did was stitch it straight to the page, how easy is that?

Mind you I think I need some inspiration to wake up the mojo a bit.... so who inspires you?
Please share in the comments I might have to go and do blog hop!!!

Thats it !!!

OMG I know right I told you I would be back with one more layout from this range then its DONE!!! I have to say this layout has been dragging on a little , I think its because I am all glittered out!!! But I must say I am proud to get 10 layouts done and my stash down to 4 sheets of paper.

Today - With Scrapmatts

Good Morning , I am here with my first ever Scrapmatts blog post!!!

This is just a little bit exciting thats for sure. So starting off today I am sharing with you my canvas, our first challenge for the design team. If your anything like me when it comes to finding a photo of yourself is hard enough little known then scrapping it is even harder!!!!

When ever I start a canvas I love to add some texture with texture paste and of course a stunning stencil, this time I have used the Scrapmatts ST1006 Stencil Stars, I find when you do this it helps catch the colours of the medium you are using.

I am also a huge fan of chains!!!! Love how they draw your eye down and around the canvas, CB1229 Chains 02 I love how you can give them a little bend to make them have some movement.

I am all about mass impact when I use my chipboard on a layout or a canvas so the 

CB4026 Flourishes 09 is the perfect way to do this dont forget you can cut up all your flourishes to get them to fit into what ever you create.

How awesome are these words??? They are just perfect for any finishing touch.

So till next time, I am off to create some more, with chipboard of course.....

Have a creative day.

Double the fun

Good Morning, ahhh the weekend and for your today I am going to share a couple of layouts at once. This time its a boy and girl layout using the lovely warm tones of yellow from the MME Lost and Found range. This is one of those great things the fact that your can interchange photos and have them look totally different.

I hope that this has inspired your to get and use the same range for both boy and girl photos, if it does share in the comments or over on my Facebook page, I would love to see them.

Till next time have a great start to the weekend.
