Layout + Tags

Happy Sunday!  Just stopping by really quick with a new creation and some tags.  I created this layout using some of the Wonder collection by Crate Paper :)  It's a really adorable collection and perfect for little boys too!
"Be Brave"

Just some detailed shots for you too............

We had a maternity photoshoot a couple of weeks ago and I made up a couple of thankyou tags for my Photographer and Makeup Artist. 


I thought this little camera was perfect for my photographer :)

Have a wonderful afternoon!!

PLS - Weekend

Hello!  Just sharing a new Pretty Little Studio creation that went live on their BLOG this week.
For my free project this month I felt the need to pull out my seashells!  What better collection to put them with than the Treasure Island Collection with a splash of Sandcastle.  I love the little images from the Sandcastle collection and added a journaling card to the top right of my photo.  I still have a thing for the Explorer stencils too and just love how you can layer them and the splashes of colour peek through.  I also added lots of little cut outs and sticker flags.

PLS Products Used:
Treasure Island Collection: Paper Crescent Reef and Wild Cat Coast, Cutouts mini word Mermaid Beach, Cutouts Mini Word Pirate Anchor, Cutouts Mini Word Pirates Swim, Cutouts Sand Dunes Note Strips, Flair Ocean Adventure, Journaling Explorer Stencil 3 x 4 cards, Journaling Boardwalk Bookmark, Stickers Gold Treasure Flags
Sandcastle Collection: Paper Sand Dollar, Journaling Fly A Kite 3 x 4 Cards

Just a few closeups:

Thanks so much for visiting!  I think it's time for my nanna nap :)

I'm So Lucky.......

I have a fun creation to share today.  A very sunshiny happy post :) 
My babies are all gone for the week with Nanny and Pop to our holiday house and I am missing them like crazy and it's only been 24 hours!!  Just over 2 weeks and our new baby will be this Mumma needs to rest!

Shimmerz Canvas

Hi there, I am sharing a canvas piece today I have created for my bedroom.  We have recently painted our room grey and I whitewashed all of our timber furniture.  I have plans for a shelf above our bed and I wanted to create a canvas to go on it.  So my newly decorated room is slowly coming together :)
Shimmerz products used:
Inklingz in Sunkissed and No One's Chrome
Coloringz in Peachy Keen and Well Blue Me Down
Vibez in Jeni B Bleu and Egg Noggin
I really wanted to write more than just 'love' on this canvas......but really all you need is love so I thought it was fine to use just the one word.   I can always add to it later when I find that perfect quote I guess.

Here is where I started with my canvas.  I actually really loved the shape and size of this canvas.  Very narrow but wide.
I started with a stencil and Modelling Paste.  I then sprayed some of the mists and blended them together with a wet paintbrush. 

My apologies, I was meant to get a photo here in between of my paper layers but got a little carried away and forgot to take one.  I started adding my embellishments.  I also applied No One's Chrome Inklingz to the brickwork and added some flickers.

I now continue to add more embellishments and once they are all in place I apply Gesso and some more Modelling Paste to the flowers, birdcage and resin pieces.  I also apply more No One's Chrome Inklingz to the middle of the leaves and some of the white flowers.

Here are some more closeups for you :

Just because..........

Hi there!
I felt the need to be creative the other week and come up with this one!  I love the colour combo for something different lately!  I haven't used much orange of late and thought it went really well with the lime and emerald tones :)
I used a mixture of Prima, Webster's (what has happened to them btw??? anyone know??), Crate Paper, 2 Crafty Chipboard (dreamcatcher) and the Hambly black swirl.
"You Are Everything To Me"

Just some details for you....
The 2 Crafty Chipboard Dreamcatcher is so gorgeous!  I added some Shimmerz, Modelling Paste and twine to it.

Chipboard arrow and feather from the Crate Paper Journey Collection.

Lots of layers and yummy Shimmerz :)

Oh, and here is another card I created.

Hope you are having a great weekend :)

Excited for #4

This one popped up on the Pretty Little Studio BLOG a few days ago :)
Today I am featuring doilies in my layout.  I have used the Cambridge ‘4’ doily and as you can see in my background I placed 3 along my page as my starting point.  They looked beautiful as is, but as you know me, I couldn’t help but fill my page with other beautiful Pretty Little Studio products.  I have also added the word art ‘I love you’ to my page.  I am not normally one to use the word art as I can’t seem to make it work but this one fitted in perfectly!!  Which I am glad because the font is just gorgeous.  I used my die-cutting machine for the love frame and to make the cute bow.    I also scattered around the stars from the Baby Sam Confetti Mix.   This is my first page documenting baby #4 and I think it’s super sweet!
"29 weeks"

The background......

PLS Products Used:
  • Holiday Cheer – Sparkly Lights
  • Gold Mine – Golden Arrow, Heart of Gold
  • Baby Claire – Baby Elizabeth, Baby Mia

The Scrapbook Diaries - Summer

Today I have the pleasure of introducing my new kit to you for The Scrapbook Diaries.  Unfortunately this will be my last kit with The Scrapbook Diaries.  It has been a absolute pleasure to create these kits with the amazing, beautiful and generous Janene.  I want to thank her for all her patience with me and my video creating!!!  She gets me :)  I will miss creating them for her and The Scrapbook Diaries but as you know I'm about ready to Pop! with our 4th bubba so my focus will be on my family and settling in as a family of 6 :)  I think in total I created 12  kits for the Scrapbook Diaries, I hope you have all enjoyed what I created and shared with you. 
My newest kit features some adorable Pretty Little Studio products, 2 Crafty Chipboard, Shimmerz and of course my beloved Prima flowers.  All of my favourite things in one :)
