Creating your own Backgrounds

Hello All
I found a few layouts I haven't shared yet! This one I used a white base and had much fun creating my own background. I used stamping, mists sprays, washi tape and tissue paper.
Do you like to create your own background? What techniques do you use?
The star frame is from Fancy Pants, I stamped on it and drew the black border. The cork arrows and gold stars are from Studio Calico. The title I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.

 Close up/Details

Over the last few weeks at work we have been working with templates to print your Instagram pics into poster or canvas. This is a sample of one we were proofing. These are my Instagram pics from 2012. I absolutely love it! I will share a better pic real soon when it is on the wall!

Watercolour and Chevron

Hello Everyone
These are two of my favorite things at the moment. Chevron pattern and watercolour! In this layout I have used a crafters workshop template to create the Chevron Pattern. I played around with mixing my watercolours and I just made sure my brush was not to wet to avoid too much bleeding under the template. I didn't want it to be perfect either.

 I then outlined the pattern using a charcoal pencil. I also flicked some watercolours on my page. Oh and I painted my mini peg with watercolour! I just love these colours and these new papers from Carte Bella -Hello Again range.
I used these large alpha from Amy Tangerine as my title and my title is also my journalling and sums up how I feel when I look at this photo of my sweet girl and I.

 Close/up detail

I am now keen to try more templates with my watercolours!

We have a busy but fun weekend with my daughters Ballet concert tomorrow!

Colour Challenge...

Hi There
These two are my wonderful parents whom are very special to me. As a gift  I framed this layout for them. I created this layout using the August colour challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. This layout started out very different then I got carried away but I really enjoyed playing with mixed media again which I haven't done for a long time!

close up/details

lots of layers with gesso, ink, stamping, HS color shine, glimmermist, tissue paper, water colour and I even dug out some beautiful prima flowers from my huge stash

These are the gorgeous colours for the challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. You still have 10 days left in this challenge if you want to give it a go!
Thanks for stopping by my blog
Enjoy the rest of your week....
ours is going to be a wet one just before we hit spring!

Night Photo's

Hi All 
Hope your week is going well the weekend is almost here! 
Today I wanted to ask have you scrapped night time pics or very dark photo's. If you have what are your tips?? I have been wanting to scrap a few night pics for a long time but never really had any great ideas on how to go about it.
 So a few weeks ago I watched a video via Two Peas in a Bucket. I love their videos and you can find the one that inspired this layout here. This video give some great tips for night photos including colors, placement and layers. I really wanted to capture the stillness of my photo and I didn't want it to get lost so I went with a light background with just a few pops of dark patterned paper. I also had to add a few stars being a night time pic and because I love stars! My title is again done on the silhouette cameo and I added watercolor and ink to it.

 Also sharing some more project life...
the cards used here are from my studio calico monthly project life kit.

In this page the title the good life and the clouds card were both cut on the silhouette cameo.

Stitching - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Well I have to say I LOVE sewing on layouts. Ok I love the effect of stitching  the sewing with the machine part I don't really like. (lets just say me and sewing machines have never really had a great relationship!!) But I think that stitching just adds that finishing touch! I actually think I should do more stitching than I do. 
This layout is  a photo-shoot of my girl earlier this year when she turned six. I have used Maggie Holmes crate paper collection (love this range!) The script paper already had the drops of paint so to balance the page I added the same to my white cardstock. The stamping is done with the Glitz camera roller stamp. As you can see in the detail pics the stitching just adds that extra bit of dimension.

I adore this clip from Maggie Holmes Crate Paper collection

You will also notice in my last post I love sewing on my cards as well.
Do you sew on your scrapbooking?

First day of school holidays here! Great to enjoy some extra family time :-) Today I  just wanted to share some simple cards. I like to have a bit of a stash of handmade cards for when I need them.
I normally like to use a simple white or kraft cardstock as my base. Then adding layers and stitching. Also a favorite of mine is tags and twine.

 This Baby girl title was cut on my silhouette cameo in white cardstock and I coloured it with pink ink. This card is also different because it opens in the center. 

 I have also been playing with the sketch pen on my cameo, totally fun! I will share some pics next time.

Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog!
Have a great week :-)

Using the Silhouette Cameo for Titles

There are many exciting ways you can use your silhouette cameo to create titles for layouts. In these layouts I have tried two different ways.
The first layout I have used a cut file downloaded from the silhouette online store. I have made it to the size I like and then cut it on this red patterned paper. Very easy and effective! 


 papers and stamps from Studio Calico

 close up/details

This next layout I used a font I liked and typed up this saying as my title using the silhouette studio software. I then cut it out of my background paper to have the negative  I then put a plain paper behind the negative to make the letters stand out. Also simple but very effective!

papers Amy Tangerine, embellishments Studio Calico

So how do you cut titles for your layouts? Please share with me your favorites!

hello....project life

yes I am still doing Project Life! I have been slack in sharing my scrapbooking as usual! but busy enjoying life! I love the concept of project life - documenting the everyday. Keeping memories of our everyday life and moments. 

Here are some close up's and details...

I am such a fan of Studio Calico products so I was super excited to join their subscription club! They have Project Life Kits, Scrapbook Kits, card kits and lots of add on kits. For the last 3 month I have been receiving the Studio Calico Project Life Kit. They are FULL of goodies! The quality of the 3x4 and 6x4 cards is just fantastic. This weeks project life was created with some of my SC Project Life Kit.
