Once Upon a Sketch - The last challenge

Today I am sharing with you my very last creation for Once Upon a Sketch.  It's with a heavy heart that Nadia has decided to close the challenge blog.  I am thankful to her for asking me to be apart of the wonderful design team for the past 12 months.  I have created some of my favourite pieces using her beautiful sketches.  I am sure this popular challenge site will be missed!!
You can read Nadia's final blog post  HERE
Journalling Theme: "It's December..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 

Here is my take on the sketch and the journaling theme :)
"Dear Santa"

I have used a few 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces in here as well.  They include:
Music Notes
Christmas Polaroid Frame Set
6" Clock Face Frame

I used a Heidi Swapp stencil for the word Enjoy.

The Dear Santa accent and frame are by Webster's Pages.

The Polaroid Frame I treated with some Shimmerz products.

Along with the Prima resin.......I was given a spray of new Shimmerz Coloringz Well Blue Me Down.

The music notes were covered with Gesso and then some chunky glitter.

I hope you have enjoyed my last creation for Once Upon a Sketch!!
Have a wonderful day xo

Pretty Little Studio x 2

Hi guys :)
Today I have 2 Pretty Little Studio Creations to share with you.  The first one was featuring Phrase strips and I also decided to create something festive.  I used some of the new collection Holiday Cheer but I also added in some of the older Christmas collections too.
"Holiday Cheer" 

My personal favourite time of the year, I adore Christmas and these Phrase Strips were the perfect amount of journaling I needed for my page.  I applied them with foam tape to make them pop from the page.  I chopped off some of the ends like a flag to give them a little more interest. 

Plus the cutest little Christmas fawn from the Jingle Bells collection.

I added in a few Santa Claus Paper Ribbons.
I also layered in a 2 Crafty Chipboard Polaroid frame.

My next creation today is the Sketch Challenge for December.

 I built my layout out from the centre of the page, as seen in the sketch.  I just adored the cute die-cut so I choose the 4 x 6 journal card which featured a fawn (Almond Butter set).   I also cut out a speech bubble and added it with foam tape to the right side of the fawn,  I switched it from the original sketch as it didn’t quite fit on the other side. 

Ahhh, the Flair.....just the cutest Flairs ever at PLS :)

 I added lots of little tags and gold word flags.  I finished it off with a few Red Poppy Vintage Diecuts.

You can find all of these cute products and more here at Pretty Little Studio.  Save 15% off your order too until the end of cool is that :) :)  Plus a brand new mini collection coming very's sooo pretty!!

Thanks for stopping in today......until next time xx

Festive with 2 Crafty Chipboard

Hello!  Today I am sharing my second creation for 2 Crafty this month.  Yay!!!  It's time to get the tree out and decorate!  I love this time of year.....end of the school year, school holidays, my birthday and Christmas!!!!
"Merry Christmas"

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
'Merry Christmas Title'
Christmas Polaroid Set
Mini Reindeers
Pointed Snow Flakes
I layered my title and treated it with some Gesso and then whilst it was still wet
 I sprinkled some gold glitter to the letters.

I dipped the 3 Pointed Snowflakes in gold glitter, both chunky and fine and then
layered them in with my flowers.

I layered the Christmas Polaroid Set (frame)  in with my papers and embellishments
and when it was in place I applied some Gesso along with a sprinkling of fine gold glitter.

I added 2 Mini Reindeers to the left and right sides of my layout.  I applied a red water
 colour pencil to the bottom of it and then added some flicks of red Shimmerz.
I covered the antlers with fine gold glitter too.

Some Mica Flakes and Shimmerz.


I hope I have inspired you to kick start some Xmas creations!! 
Hugs xo

2 Crafty Chipboard

Hello :)
I am stopping by today with my first creation for 2 Crafty this month.  I felt like creating something beachy so I grabbed out the seashells and my favourite colours.
"Good Day"
2 Crafty Chipboards pieces used:
Hessian Patch Panels
Line Words 'Happiness Boarders'
Friendship Mini Word Pack

I layered the Line Words 'Happiness Boarders' (good day) over the flowers.
 I applied some white crackle paint to it.

I decorated the Anchor with some glass beads, thread and a little cheese cloth.
  I then layered it on top of my flowers also.

I have been waiting to use these little Seagulls on a creation.  They are really cute and suited my theme perfectly.  I applied Shimmerz Dimensionz in Pearly Gates to both of them.

I cut the Hessian Patch Panel into a few pieces and tucked them into certain areas
of my layout.  I then added some Gesso for a white washed look and then sprayed
some new Shimmerz Coloringz colours to them.

Lastly I added the word Mates from the Friendship Mini Word Pack
 with a simple coating of Gesso.

Lots of Shimmerz in here also with some Prima beads.

Thanks for visiting, back soon with more shares xx
