Icecream canvas

Hi there!  Today I am stopping by with my super duper cute Icecream canvas I created using mostly Pretty Little Studio products.  Its sooooo cute this piece, the picture really doesn't do it justice!!  I used lots of PLS papers and layered them up with some calico pieces also.
I cut, distressed and layered all the layers with foam tape.  For the background I cut up tiny pieces of Vellum in Gold Starry and blended it into my mixed media work.  Lastly I topped the ice cream with a couple of Die-cut Cloud 9 pieces.

Product list:
  • Paper: Baby Jack – Baby Jason/Baby Carter. Baby Claire – Baby Mia, Nature Walk – Tree Root, Neapolitan – Pistachio
  • Embellishments:  Vellum Gold Starry, True Love Gold Flags, Diecut Cloud 9, Cut Out Love Story Word flags

You can find all these cute papers HERE in the Pretty Little Studio shop.
Thanks for looking.
Hugs xoxo

Pretty Friday Shares............

Happy Friday to you all, I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned :)
Today I have a couple of creations to share with you.
The first one was another creation I created whilst on holidays.  I started off with a stencilled background.  If you follow me on Instagram (STACEYYOUNG81) or my facebook page (StaceyYoung Creations and Crafts) you may have seen the before shot of the stencil :)  I then of course had to fill it up with lots of pretties and a smidgen of black and white to match in with my photo.  I just love this pic of all of together reading books!!!

I used some more Maggie Holmes Confetti and a little Craft Market.

I also used lots of gorgeous Shimmerz products.  To name a few -
Vibez Egg Noggin
Coloringz Pretty In Pink/Well Blue Me Down/Night Moves
Inklingz Good As Gold/Sun Kissed
Spritz Mango Madness

Some pretty Prima flowers :)

My second creation today was based on inspiration from the following photo.
It was shared on the Pretty Little Studio blog last week.

The painting in this picture certainly caught my attention, it’s amazing.  I took inspiration from the colours and painted the background to match.  I also loved the Woodgrain and choose a some Silly Monkey paper to match the brown colour.  I used a flower die cut to cut some layered flowers out of the pink papers and placed the Journaling card from the You & Me Collection to accent the left hand side.

"I'll Always Be There"

Paper: Silly Monkey Collection – Silly Ruth Polka, Silly Harper Heart; You & Me Collection – Cut Out Paper Together, Cupid pink; Love Notes Collection – Rose Bed Journaling: You & Me 3×4, Owl Feather 3 x 4; Stickers: True Love Gold Flags; Flair: Cupids Arrow; Tags: You & Me Together Tabs

PLS sketch

Pretty Little Studio releases a sketch challenge each month.  This months challenge was wonderful and a great starting point for me.  You can find all of the details HERE
I really enjoyed creating with this sketch.   I often lose the sketch in amongst all of my layers but if you look closely enough you can definitely see this sketch was the starting point for my creation. 
I have mixed the collection You & Me in with some Woodland creatures to create a Easter themed layout.  I have also used lots of colour for the theme of Easter.  I added lots of mixed media and finished off the page by scattering a few Die cut Butterflies in the co-ordinating colours! 
"Hello Bunny"

PLS - pin inspiration

Hi there!!
This little page went up on the Pretty Little Studio Blog last week.
 I have taken inspiration from this Pin.  I have chosen to use the colours from the picture for my fun layout.  I used a mixture of different collections to bring my layout together.  I loved the circle shape in the picture and made a couple of pie charts out of the You & Me paper Heartstrings.  I also loved the Polka Dot background and used the Baby Jack paper Baby Chase (yellow dot) as part of my background too.  I added a couple of Flair pieces along with some die-cut Clouds, Tabs and Paper Ribbons.

"Totally Awesome"

Pattern Papers :  You & Me Heartstrings/My Honey Bun, Cupid 8 x 8, Back Jack, Baby Chase
Embellishments: Neopolitan Polaroid tags, Tabs Twinkle, Tabs Together, Flair Silly Flora, Flair Heart You Buttons, Diecut Cloud 9, Cutouts Wisteria Word Flags, Watermelon Paper Ribbons
