I swear it was only mid-March. I loved this mood board from Sassy Scrappers and definitely wanted to give it ago, then to realise on the weekend that I only had a few days left. Can you believe it's already April?
Anyway, I whipped this up today, inspired by not only the moodboard but DT member Chantalle's take on it. While she used brush strokes I decided to make my title a feature across my page. 

I am super disappointed with how my layouts have been photographing lately, actually ever. I have tried every position in the house and every setting on my camera. I promise you it looks a lot better in person. The watercolour looks a lot bright and more orange. I'm going to try take a better picture tomorrow. 

I used bit and pieces from past and current Scrappery kits because that's all I really have on hand here at Uni. Plus some things I've pick up at Spotlight while I've been here. I'm not going to tell you how much I've spent there in the last 5 weeks. 

To create my title I stuck down some DIY Shop letter stickers, used my gelatos to create a watercolour effect then removed the stickers and stitch around each letter with this gorgeous multi-coloured thread.

Hopefully I'll have more non DT project coming your way really soon. So good to be able to scrap for yourself every now and then.

Cleo is The Scrappery's January kit and it is AMAZING. It features plenty of paper and embellishments from Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection which I adore. The colours are just so different to other ranges out at the moment. I don't know about you guys but I'm actually a huge fan of purple at the moment, especially lilac and violet. I know a lot of scrapbookers dread it though. 

And finally, for your pleasure and entertainment, I also made a process video which you can check out here. 
Thanks for checking it out.

A lot of LOVE for 'Clara'

Today I'm sharing with you some sneaks from a layout I created using Clara, the December TSK over at The Scrappery. TOTALLY LOVE THIS KIT. It my favourite yet, featuring lots and Maggie Holmes Open Book and lots more goodness. And it's so versatile, you can check out my Christmas layout here and a vintage layout here. I don't think the subjects/photos in those layouts could be more different.
I am loving this combination of colours at the moment, pink, red and black and white, especially because Valentines Day is approaching.

The photo I used I took when I visited my cousins in January. It's a scrapbookers dream when you pull your camera out and everyone is more than willing to pose for a picture or 100 or whatever. So here's a few more. Which will MORE than likely find there way onto a layout sometime soon.

Make sure you head over to the Scrappery for the full layout and and more gorgeous CT inspiration. And the January kit has just been revealed too. Exciting times.
