Another Kit I've Designed For
The Scrapbook Diaries
Bloom & Grow

 Hello friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another layout to show you that I have recently
designed for "The Scrapbook Diaries".
Besides having an amazing online STORE, they also sell Designer Kits
and have a very inspiring BLOG too. 

There are no subscriptions to anything. You just visit the store & choose what
page kit you want, & as I mentioned, as well as enough materials to create TWO
layouts (their kits always include & BONUS layout as well),
you also get the step X step video as well. So you actually get two layouts
for the price of one. You can also choose from different options, such as the full kit
 that will include EVERYTHING, or a couple of other options that include less
items in case you already have some of the things.

To order your kit, click HERE.
The gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard pieces that are included in this kit.

I have created a super easy mixed media background that I just know
 you will love & when you watch the video tutorial that comes with the kit,
 I think you will be pleased with the outcome.

As always I have some gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard pieces that I know you will love.

Lots of yummy flowers.

Some gorgeous lace & various embellies too.
Scrapbook Diaries kits are always jam packed with

Lots of textures & don't you just love that butterfly?

Well that just about wraps up another kit for me.
I do hope you like it as much as I liked designing it.
Remember to get in quick though because their kits
always sell fast.
Until next time.

6" Circle Lace Panel & one of their Mini Words "Smile".

How beautiful is the 2Crafty "6" Circle Lace Panel" that I have cut into strips.

"Live Out Load"
Frosted Designs Friday Challenge

Hi there paper friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a layout I created that was inspired by the current challenge at
Frosted Designs Challenge Blog.
The challenge was to use 
"Fabric, felt, burlap or lace"
& I always loooove texture so I embraced their 
challenge & this is what I came up with.

I must say, I am really enjoying doing some boy layouts lately.

Loads of layers using all different types of  burlap.
I have used lots of glorious chipboard from my friends over at 
2Crafty Chipboard.

I cut up this chippie Steampunk Corner to create this long piece &
then proceeded to give it a "rusted metal" look to match in
with my photos.

  I even included this burlap flower to tie in with the challenge.

I have to say I do love all these burlap pieces.
Thanks for calling by.
Until next time.

Some Cards for My June Card Classes

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have two of the cards I will be teaching in my June Card Classes.
I have also included a male one too, but I will show you that later.

 So for the first card I have decided to make a "Box Card". If you are not 
familiar with Box Cards, believe it or not but that collapse down flat for
postage, without ruining anything !!!! Rather clever concept.

I recently got hold of some fabulous Heartfelt Creation stamps & they have
a matching die. I have used them here to create these yellow flowers. Gee
having the matching die to go with the stamp really makes it sooo easy.

 My second card I have kept fairly simply with just one handmade
flower & this yummy frame. It is a new Memory Box die & as
soon as I saw it I just had to use it. You can't tell in this photo but
I have actually used a fab white sparkly paper for the frame,
shame it doesn't show in the photo.
Hope you like them. Until next time.

My Scrap Around the World June DT Reveal

Hi there friends, Thanks for calling by. Today I have my June DT reveal for
Scrap Around the World.
This is their gorgeous NEW June moodboard. I just love the softness of it &
 I was also inspired by those little pinwheel looking umbrellas, to
get out my old pinwheel die, dust it off & make some.
Haven't made any of these for quite a while.
The colour palette & the flowers in the moodboard also inspired me.
 June Moodboard
As always I have used some of my favourite
 2Crafty Chipboard

This is my gorgeous Grandaughter, Mia with her fairy wings on Nanny had bought her.
I just love buying here girly things & she looks soooo sweet in them. Alright I'll stop gushing !!
I used the 2Crafty title "Cherish the Moments" & simply cut the cherish word off & I
have saved the other words for a future project. Nothing goes to waste !!

I am really happy how the photos look "fussy cut" out & placed in this garden of flowers.

As always, lots of mixed media on my background & lots of sequins & glass micro beads too.

Love those little 2Crafty chippie "Silhouette Leaves".

Lots of layers & stamping.

Here I have actually used a chippie "Corner Evie" from 2Crafty but
I have cut it in half & laid it end to end to create this shape here.
It was just perfect for what I needed. I have also scattered a few
chippie "Mini Hearts" around the page too.

Well thats all for today, I hope you can find some time to play along with us over
 at Scrap Around the World & be inspired by this gorgeous moodboard too.
 As always they have TWELVE monthly PRIZES on offer too.

Until next time
