"Cherish in Blue"
More Design Team Inspiration for
49 and Market

 Hello there, thanks for stopping by the blog. Today I have another layout to share
 with you & I have used some of the NEW papers from 49and Market  just released
 “Bold & Beautiful” paper collection
I have also used some of their  NEW Laser Cuts too.

 You can see on my background I have teamed two different papers from the NEW
 “Bold & Beautiful” collection. 

I am totally addicted to the NEW Laser Cuts. Here I have used “Laser Cuts Frame Set #1”
There are three different sets in total & I do love them all.

 They really are just the perfect thing to create lots of gorgeous layers with.

All of the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard.

 I have used some of their “Stargazer Flowers” in blue as well as a few white
 “Garden Seeds” flowers scattered around the page too.

There you have a super easy layout that just came together without any fuss, 
all thanks to the beautiful Laser Cuts & co ordinating papers
 from 49and Market.. 

Until next time.

My "More Than Words" Challenge
Design Team Inspiration

 Hi there lovelies & welcome to the February challenge over at
This months challenge is to either use or be inspired by the
 word ALWAYS & to use a quote somewhere on your project.

As you can see I have included the word ALWAYS in the
form of a little chipboard word from 2Crafty Chipboard.

The papers & laser cut embellishments are all 
NEW RELEASE products from 49and Market.

This was the little quote I decided on...
"Memories are Forever & Always".

This is the reason we all love to scrapbook, wouldn't you agree?

In all these closeup pics you can see all the beautiful NEW release
 paper & the lovely details of the NEW laser cut embellishments.

Lots of layers.

I do love the vintage feel of this layout which I 
thought suited the theme of "memories".

Well thats all I have for you today.
I hope I have inspired you to perhaps join us in our February challenge
over at "More Than Words".

Until next time.

A NEW KIT for February
"Live Out Loud"

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another boy layout to share with you that was part of my 
recent design team creations for 2Crafty Chipboard.

 I think I will release this layout as KIT for mid Febnruary release. 
Now that I have a grandson I am really enjoying do boy pages.

2Crafty Products Used...
"Live Out Loud" - title
Geometric Arrows
Light Bulbs Word Set #1 
Steampunk Strips
Clock Face Discs 

  Such a great title for a boy page "Live Out Loud".
I cut one of the "Steampunk Strips" in half to create this cool little
corner embellishment & painted it  with metallic paint. 

Here you can see the  "Geometric Arrow" & some lovely 
autumn leaves as well as two little custom made flair badges. 

One of my favourite chippie pieces, the "Light Bulb Word Set #1"

I wanted to go with a circle theme, & I thought that these "Clock Face Discs"
would work perfectly & so I decided to cut the photos into circles too.

 I love layering the chipboard clock faces, photos & the laser cut 
embellishments, all slightly overlapping each other.
My papers, flowers & laser cut embellishments are all from

Well thats all I have for you today.
