Be You Tiful with Craft on the Run

Good morning how are you? I am here today with a late but none the less layout using the amazing Maja Designs - Denim and Girls and we are do a reorder in the New Years so if your interested call the store  Craft on the Run and put your name down. 

This collection has plenty of different papers for any style of scrapping..... its even perfect for simple cut files.

#93 /365

One of my favourite things to do is use my left over strips of paper.... they make a simple but effect background to build your layouts. Just layer them in different lengths, widths and colour combinations.

Now the key to using a lot of bling is to start small clusters of larger things like rhinestones, then going out from there, like using sequins and glitter to build up from there. Also layer the sequins / glitter over the rhinestones too. This completes the clusters of bling.

Need your title to stand out? Add some glossy accents over the title to add a little shine.

The Awesome piece of paper is the pattern that I used to create the swirls on the page, it is a little bit technical to fussy cut but the results are worth it just follow the pattern to get the shapes you want.

Layer washi tape, and chipboard to add small interest points need a rhinestone title, dont forget to add some rhinestones and sequins.

Finish off the layout with some small rhinestones.

I hope that inspires you to have a play and if you would like to own this collection call the store or even better why dont you pop in?

You Colour My World with Dusty Attic

 Good morning how are you? Once in a while you get a brain wave and take your clues from what is trending in fashion.... especially with colour trends. I am drawn to the earth tones at the moment, probably because we are building and then designing the rooms with new furniture and bedding etc, so they are the tones I am looking to do for our darling daughter. 

So when it came to choosing papers it was in the back of my mind I think.... I have to say I am happy that they where as its a colour palette I never would naturally go to, and lets face it the 49& Market papers with the NEW Dusty Attic Chipboard tend to go hand in hand, dont you think?

#90/365, #91/365, #92/365

So to kick off I have a series of photos and rather than do a few layouts or a couple of doubles I go to my go to flip out booklet style scrapbooking.. hidden layers under a feature top.

And whats better than that? Especially if your filling up scrapbook albums quicker than you can buy them.

Rather than crop down my photos I like to use the negative space to add my chipboard on you can use titles or how about a little rainbow or gnome!!!

So to add a little interest in on your layout why not grab a boarder punch and add details to the top and bottom of your pages.

Dont forget to grab your washi tape, and fussy cut out some leaves, yes you can fussy cut washi and it works out really well, because you get a transparent look with it on your page.

To create this look I used a little bit of left over macramé cord, from when I do my hanging plant holders just a few little knots and then you just comb out the cord and you have made a feature out of the rainbow.

Add a little sprinkling of 49 & Market flowers throughout your chipboard layers.

So if your feeling inspired why dont you enter into this months mood board, till next time have a creative day.
