Love you to the Moon & Back for Scrapbooking Top 50

Hi Everyone

Lots of cool sketches around this month and I loved this sketch over at Scrapbooking Top 50  Australia this month. I have created this layout using a photo and papers that I have had in my stash for a while - obviously just waiting on the perfect sketch for inspiration!

Love you to the Moon and Back



Adore this photo of my two, taken 9 years ago - where did that time go? The gorgeous moon and the title are both 2Crafty Chipboard, part of the Love you to the Moon set.

My background is gelatos used as a watercolour and some subtle stars done with texture paste. The moon has been painted white then edged in the blue gelato. 



I've finished off with some gorgeous embellishments - some Cocoa Vanilla Studio and 2Crafty and these beautiful blue felt flowers that I have probably had in my stash for as long as the photo, I can't remember where I got them!


The layout is based on this sketch:

Kraft Plus - On your Bike

Hi everyone

Planning to be a bit more regular with the challenge entries this year. January almost got away from me, but have squeezed in the Kraft Plus challenge - On your Bike. The criteria is to use a bike on your layout:

Here we Go



Got out the Dylusions paints to have a play with the background, co-ordinating with the colours in my photo - it helps they go so nice together. Then I had a dig around in my scraps draw to find some papers to co-ordinate - some old Basic Grey B Side. 

A couple of close ups of my embellishment clusters. First up, a Charms Creations Hessian Heart, some Cocoa Vanilla wood veneer cogs, a prima flower and a cute bike flair that I have had for so long I can't remember who's it is!


and some Cocoa Vanilla goodies all together - flower, cog and limited edition flair!



Thanks for stopping by!

Don't let anyone ever Dull your Sparkle

Hello everyone

This week for All About Scrapbooks I have created a page using Cocoa Vanilla Studio's Make a Wish collection and some fab 2Crafty Chipboard pieces.

Don't let anyone ever Dull your Sparkle


I adore this paper collection with it's blues and pinks that work so fabulously together.

 I have started this page off with a watercoloured background using some Dylusion Ink Spray and water. Love that it gives just the right amount of colour and you can control how light or dark it is. 

The 2Crafty chipboard seahorse is my favourite thing on this layout - it perfectly co-ordinates with Lily's top and I have simply inked a few different colours - pink, blue, green onto it before adding some stickles. 

To see some close-ups of my layout, head on over to All About Scrapbooks blog

Ready, Set, Go!

Hello everyone

Just popping in to share this fun layout created with Bella Blvd's Alex Collection and Dylusions Paints for my DT work with All About Scrapbooks:

Ready, Set, Go!


I had some fun playing with some paint layers before adding a little stamping and then some layers of patterned paper from the Alex collection. 

You can see some close up and detail over on this post at All About Scrapbooks.
