Prima Princess for Wild About Scrap

Going all pretty & girly today! I received some of the Prima Marketing 'Princess' collection to use from Wild About Scrap, which is so beautifully soft & feminine. I also had this photo (which was the best of a bad bunch - someone is ALWAYS looking away! hehe), that was taken of the kids and I recently on Mothers Day.

I was inspired by the colour palette featured in June's Prima Product Picks for this layout. Despite the fact it features the 'Something Blue' collection, I thought it was perfect for my 'Princess' based project.

Here is this month's PPP...

Here are some close-ups...

If you love gorgeous & girly, then I highly recommend the Prima Marketing 'Princess' collection. I am looking forward to creating with this one again!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Don't forget to let me know you were here so I can return the favour! X

Fancy Pants for Wild About Scrap

Hi everyone!
I'm here today sharing a layout I recently completed for Wild About Scrap using the Fancy Pants 'Be Different' range, which is full of bold patterns, cute monsters and is PERFECT for scrapping boys!

Given that this range is full of boyish goodness, I turned to one of my favourite scrappers, Kim Jeffress, for a bit of boy inspiration. Kim has a fantastic graphic style and often uses bold patterns very successfully in her projects, so I was hoping I wouldn't go wrong if I used a similar style. This was quite a departure from my recent creations, and I am happy with the result. (I am also happy with the fact it took a LOT less time to complete!)

I love all the cool elements in the 'Be Different - Ephemera Pack', and embellished most of my layout using them...

I also added tickets from the 'Be Different - Ticket Roll'...

The little chipboard star button is from the 'Be Different - Button Pack'. And how cute is that little monster? He is also from the ephemera pack.

The Fancy Pants 'Be Different' range is currently available from Wild About Scrap, but you will have to be quick before it is all gone! You can make sure you are keeping up to date with all the latest arrivals in store via the WAS Facebook page HERE. (And don't forget to enter the current give away there too - there is a prize pack worth over $50 up for grabs!)
Happy scrapping! X

Off the Rails - Fabric Challenge!

Hi everyone! Back again today (I know, so soon!) to share my latest DT layout for Off the Rails. The new challenge is to use fabric on your project. Fabric can be great for adding texture to a LO, and for my sample I managed to incorporate it in a few different ways.

Here is my layout...

To cover the challenge criteria, I used some crochet doilies & gauze to add texture to my background; then included a fabric covered button, handmade rolled fabric rose, and a corduroy flower in my embellishments. And yes, that is Heidi Swapp you spy again - patterned paper, title and acrylic shapes are all from the "Dreamy" collection. (Expect to see more of this at a later date, I still have lots left! hehe)

Here are some close-ups..

{Corduroy flower and heart pin from Maya Road; pink check fabric button from Lovelybug bits n Bobs}

{Love candy embellishment from Burdy's Embellies}

{Flair badge from Flutterby Designs; gold sequins from Lovelybug Bits n Bobs}

{My handmade rolled fabric rose; assorted flowers from Wild About Scrap and D-lish Scraps}

{So many layers! The cute little resin rainbow is from Lovelybug Bits n Bobs}

I would love to see YOUR take on this challenge at Off the Rails, there are so many ways you can easily incorporate fabric into your projects. The winner will be awarded a Designer Hot Spot - a chance to be featured on the OTR blog. 
Thanks for popping in! X

Show Us Your Stuff June Challenge!

Hi everyone!
Don't you just love the 1st of the month? All those new challenges revealed! I am here today sharing my Design Team layout for this month's Show Us Your Stuff challenge. And this month we have a RECIPE challenge, which was mixed together by our very own DT member Catie Kennedy.

Catie's recipe called for:
- at least one handmade item
- a sprinkling of stars
- a dash of sequins
- a title that includes at least 2 different types of alphas
- 3 buttons / flair
- 2 photos
- 1 arrow

Here's what I cooked up...

{Papers by Heidi Swapp, Bella Blvd & Prima; Alphas by American Crafts & Sassafras}

{I added my stars using texture paste and my Prima Elementals stars stencil  from Wild About Scrap}

{Fabric "bug" button & gold sequins from Lovelybug Bits n Bobs; assorted flowers from D-lish Scraps;
Dusty Attic heart arrow from Wild About Scrap}

{Flair button & flowers from D-lish Scraps; rainbow heart resin from Lovelybug Bits n Bobs}

Thanks for stopping by! I do hope you will join in this month's challenge at Show Us your Stuff (it's really not as scary as it sounds, I promise!)
