Pink Balloons

My last layout to share with you this month is for Scrap the Girls. I loved this colour combo, so bright and girly. 
I thought it would be too much to use a solid colour as my background, so I grabbed some white cardstock (as usual) and used mist and water to create this ombre effect. I really loved how it turned out. It does look more vibrant in real life.

The lighting was perfect this afternoon when I took these that I couldn't decide which to add, so I added a few. Enjoy!

These printed Kaisercraft chipboard pieces worked perfectly with my layout. 'Yay' for using up our stash!

I hope you like it. I really love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by,

Guess What?

I think the photo says it all...I have joined the Design Team at D-lish Scraps
I am so looking forward to this experience. This is my first DT position at a scrapbooking store and I already know I'm going to love it. I have just received my first parcel and can't wait to get creating. 
I love using their products so I'm stoked to be able to inspire others to use their goodies as well!

The other, very talented ladies have been so welcoming and I can't wait to see their creations over the next 6 months. 
Here they are... go check them out!

A Sweet Cupcake Kit...

Hi all,

The first layout I have to share with you today is created for the sketch challenge at Kraft It Up.
I loved it. It is one of those that really gets your mojo flowing. I can think of a few different layouts I can create using the sketch but here is what I ended with...

Our computer had been out of action for some time so I wasn't able to print any new photo. I ended up rummaging through our scrap room to see what I could find and I found these gems. Haha, I love the colours though.

All products (well almost all) are from A Piece Of Cake Design's August kit. I fell in love with these papers from My Minds Eye.
If you haven't noticed I am currently obsessed with scollop circles.

 The next layout is for the 123 Challenge. The criteria- pink, florals and the word, sweet. Again I used products from the kit and added some Dear Lizzy products as I thought they went together perfectly.

I created my own little paper garland using a butterfly punch and machine stitching . I thought it was a different way to incorporate the patterned papers I love on my layouts.

Thanks for popping by today!
I will be back later in the week with some exciting news! Yay!

Sunday Scrap

Hi everyone,
Just popping by to share with you I layout I scrapped today. Yay!
I used the Stuck 15th Sketch (which is luckily still running). The extra criteria was to use the colours in their banner- blue, green and red. I used orange instead of red as it worked much better on the layout (and I wanted to use that gorgeous Cherry Flair). Plus, I think some of the brads in the banner have an orange tinge. 

So here's what I created...

Thanks for popping by today, 
Have a great week...

Seeing Red (and White)!

Hi everyone!
Have you seen the challenge over at SUYS? yet? Septembers criteria is to use the colours red and white (and a handmade embellishment of course).
Here is my sample...
I used a lollipop from Charm's Creations has my handmade item. I also added specks of yellow and blue because I was I thought it had to much of a Christmassy feel. Is it too early for Christmas layouts?

It doesn't feel like that long ago we went to see this match. Then I looked at the ticket... Round 5...that was like April... WOW, how time flies!

Thanks for popping by today!
I hope you are enjoying this glorious weather!
