Working with Kraft

15 October 2016
Hello there everyone. Today I'll be sharing a layout I made using some leftover embellishments and kraft paper. I tend to use white cardstock as background but thought it would be nice to change things a bit and so I grabbed some kraft paper. I pulled out some embellishments that have been in my stash for a while and worked with what I had chosen. 
One of my to go design starting points is to divide the page in two and work from that. Here I decided to work diagonally. 
In one part I placed the photo/title and in the other the embellishments. It came together really quickly.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back Monday to share some of my Citrus Twist layouts.

Hi there everyone. I'm so excited to share my first layout for Citrus Twist. Here is a look at the October 2016 "Waverly" kit. I also got the Embellishment kit.

 Scrapbook Kit

Embellishment kit

I was inspired by one of the patterned papers in the kit with tiny triangles. I decided to create a layout using this shape as main elements. I kept the triangles to the right and made sure to leave lots of white space. To soften the harsh straight lines of the triangles I broke them up by adding some scalloped punched out shapes and also placed the title over the largest triangle. 

You can see all my work in the citrus twist gallery (although there isn't a lot just right now). I'll be uploading all my work there.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Altenew September Release Blog Hop *Giveaway closed*

19 September 2016

You have just arrived from Lydia Evans's blog. As you know Altenew is releasing 15 dies, 12 new inks, 36 re-inkers, two glitter tapes. The dies match the previous stamp release and make cutting out stamped shapes easy.

The new ink colours complete those that already exist and there are beautiful hues including shades of aqua and pink (my favourite).

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Saturday, September 24, 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on Sunday, September 25 on the Altenew blog.

You can also win a $30 gift certificate here on my blog. Leave a comment and I'll pick a lucky winner on Friday.

Here is a layout I created with some of the new dies, inks and washi tape. The gold tape is AMAZING. I made my own embellishments with it by sticking it onto some cardstock and cutting out a butterfly shape with a die from Altenew. The branch is cut from Cherry Wood paper using the Greenery

Sunday news

18 September 2016
Hello there everyone. How are you all doing? I'm doing great but it is September and September is always super duper busy and getting used to new schedules has been taking its toll on me. I am SO tired. Usually it gets better by the end of the month.

Here are a couple of my Altenew projects that I haven't shared yet on my blog. And I also forgot to share my FABULOUS NEWS :

I'll be starting in October and CAN'T WAIT.

Now onto some projects.
The first one is a very simple layout where I played with paint and created a title with the Big World Stamp set. You can see the process video on the Altenew blog.

On my next layout I used one of the lesser known products from Altenew. They have amazing cardstock and I absolutely LOVE their Birch Wood paper. It is genuine wood and you can use it in a die cutting machine. I love the texture it brings to the layout. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll be back really soon.

Back to school

1 September 2016
It is September which means BACK TO SCHOOL for the kiddos but also for mom. It is a difficult month transitioning to new routines and working around my teaching timetable trying to fit in some scrapbooking moments. I'm working on some new projects which I'll show soon but today I wanted to share some older ones which I haven't shared because they were in Esprit Scrapbooking.
This layout was made using one stamp stamped with different colours and then I just added embellishments.

This is a mini book I made using packaging.




Happy Scrapping and see you soon.
