My Lindy's Stamp Gang June DT Reveal
Showcasing Some NEW Stamps From 49 and Market
Plus a VIDEO TUTORIAL (with voice)
"Love You"

 Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by the blog. Today I have a layout I would like to share 
with you, featuring my gorgeous grandaughter. For this layout I wanted to go super pastel 
on the white background. I have created a VIDEO TUTORIAL so you can see my creative process.


 Lindy's Stamp Gang Products Used....
These are all linked to the products on the website.

 As well as stamping & heat embossing some flowers on my background, I also stamped
 & heat embossed some extras & after colouring them with the above sprays, I then 
proceeded to fussy cut them out.

The wonderful stamps I used are all from 49 and Market.
49 and Market Stamps Used...
Always & Forever Set
Loved Set
Scripted Squared

 I have also heat embossed this chipboard title, a length of chain as well as these words that
 I stamped on the background with the "Bonjour Butter" embossing powder.
All the chipboard is from 2Crafty Chipboard.

As well as colouring up the heat embossed flowers that I fussy cut out, I also sprayed 
some extra flowers in the "Bonjour Butter" spray.  Isn't this a gorgeous colour? I love it.

 I was really happy how all these flowers turned out. I also sprayed this silk seam binding bow
 in the "LusciousLime" too. A little background stamping & a few Prills were also added too.

Well thats about all for today.
I hope you like this, something a little different to what I would normally do.
If you llike it I would love you to leave me a comment.

Until next time.

My 2Crafty Chipboard June DT Reveal
Part Two

Hello there lovelies, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another layout featuring my gorgeous grandaughter that I created for 
I did a little mixed media on my background using some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays
in "Alpine Ice Rose" & Chateau Rose" sprays & Magicals in "Cuckoo Clock Cardinal".

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Hello - title
Frames - Tiny Henri's
Brick Panel

In this pic you can see this fab "Hello" title which was perfect for my layout.
I adore this font. All I did to this piece was to simply paint it in black acrylic paint.
Too easy !

The next 2Crafty piece I use is this adorable little frame which was ideal for what I 
needed to add my grandaughters name, age & date to my layout. While practical, it is
 also a sweet little embellishment at the same time. I also painted it in black acrylic paint too.

In these two pics you can see I have cut a "Brick Panel" into a few pieces. First up
I coated it in white gesso before brushing on a little colour with a Lindy's Stamp Gang
"Magical" shaker in "Cuckoo Clock Cardinal. I wanted the colour to be a bit random.

Some lovely 49 and Market flowers.

A little stamping & some Prills, & viola, all finished.

 If you like my layout I would LOVE you to leave me a comment.

Until next time.

My 2Crafty Chipboard June DT Reveal
Part One
"Let the Adventure Begin"

Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a layout to share with you that I made for
2Crafty Chipboard using some of their lovely pieces.

 2Crafty Products Used...
Corner Ivy
Let The Adventure Begin title
Leafy Rounds
Leafy Shrub Set #2

For this chippie title I simply coated it in gesso followed by 
dabbing on very lightly with a Prima "Blue Jay" ink.

Now for all the other chippie pieces I have used I treated them all in the same way.
Step 1... I coated them all in gesso.
Step #2...I then gave them a heavy coat of "Viva Crystal Gel"(gives a sort of crackled effect).
Step #3...I sprayed them all with a mist.

Here you can see the "Leafy Round" chippie piece underneath the flower cluster.

I have actually cut the "Corner Ivy" chippie piece & I have placed a piece across the op of the
page & the other pieces I have positioned at the left side of my photos.

A few chippie "Butterflies" scattered around the layout
& I am all done. Hope you like it.

I would love to hear your comments about this layout.

Until next time.

More of My June DT Reveal for 49 and Market

Hi there again lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have another layout to share with you
 that I created using our wonderful "Sand and Sea" paper collection from 49 and Market
For this layout I have used two pieces, both the A & B sides of the "Beach This Way" paper.
 I just loved both sides of this paper. In order to get the image in the bottom right corner
 I just turned it & trimmed it off, & hey, viola!

 In both these pics you can see I have stamped some beautiful feathers using their great
 "Feather Stamp Set" & coloured them up to match my layout with some Lindys Sprays
 before fussy cutting them out. This stamp set is turning out to be one of my favourite go to items.

I have also used some beautiful pieces of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard too.
Here you can see I have added some wonderful mesh to my layout to add 
to the whole sea theme.

 Underneath my photo I used some of the 49 and Market cream coloured "Burlap Trim" 
which I seriously frayed to add extra texture. Really pleased how this looks. Also lots of
 gorgeous 49 and Market flowers too, including  "Floral Mixology", "Garden Blooms" 
as well as some "Vintage Shades".

 Here you can see I have done some stencilling on my background & added some coloured spray before doing some background stamping with another great 49 and Market stamp. 
This one is called "Script Squared" .

A sprinkling of Prills & hey presto, all finished. I do hope I have inspired you in some small way.

Thats it for today. Until next time.

My June DT Reveal for
49 and Market
"Just Adorable"

Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a layout I created for  
49 and Market
using their brand NEW "Sand and Sea" paper collection. Wow these papers just make
 you want to jump right in the ocean. As my main background I have used the "Coral Reef"
 paper in all these gorgeous soft pink & blues. If you look close you will see all the
 wonderful details on it like coral & seaweed. etc
I trimmed the top of my layout with a strip of deeper pink from the 
"Scents of Nature" "Paradise" paper.
 I like how it matched so well & created a lovely contrast.

 I also fussy cut out a few bits & pieces from a collection sheet that you get
when you purchase the collection pack.

 Aren't the colours in this paper incredible?

I also cut out this lovely lighthouse from the "Seafoam" paper too.
 I thought it made a great embellishment.

Lots of gauze, some beautiful Mica Flakes to add to the whole ocean thing along with
a few shells too.  As well I also used some of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard too.

 I have used lots of their gorgeous new "Mixology" flowers in white, & as you can see 
from the pic above, you get four different sizes all in one pack. Perfect for clustering. 
I actually sprayed all the "Mixology" ones in pink & aqua sprays. I have also used my
 favourite white "Garden Vine" which I cut into two pieces & I also used a canvas 
flower from our "Rustic Pointsettia's". I also sprayed that too.

Well thats all from me today, I hope you like my layout. I will see you back here
again in a few days with some more inspiration.
Until then.

My More Than Words Challenge
June DT Reveal

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another vintage layout to share with you which
features this photo of my Great Grandfather. This is for the June
challenge over at More Than Words challenge.
This month the challenge is "STEAMPUNK" & I thought
 this photo was perfect for the challenge. He is even wearing a 
fobwatch which you can see if you look closely.

Lots of mixed media on my background using some Lindys Stamp Gang
 "Cowabunga Copper" & "Grab A Guy Gold" sprays. I am really happy with how
 that turned out. It gave a lovely richness to the layout.

Lots of gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard cogs, clock frames & a mini word.

I love that key with the steampunk wings & the copper Prills you can see here.

Lots & lots of metal embellishments to add to the whole effect.

I am so happy with how this background turned out.

Well that just about wraps this up. I hope that you will play
along with us this month over at More Than Words challenge.
As always, there are eight fabulous prizes up for grabs too.

Until next time.
