I usually only have time to post about my DT work, but recently I went away to a scrapbooking retreat out at Minden with 34 other amazing women and actually got to do something for myself.
This evening I wanted to share with you the layout that I did on the last evening using the most amazing range of papers called Heart Painted by Lemoncraft. They not only bring out a range of papers, but also flair buttoms, ribbons/trims and flowers and other embellishments. I have several of the different ranges and this was my first layout I have done using them.
The lace trims I purchased from the most amazing scrapbooking store called BELLA PAPERIE on the northside of Brisbane. Debra, the owner hand dies all her laces and trims. Her store is a treasure trove of everything pretty and so different to other stores which makes it so attractive.
I loved making this layout. It is of me with my mummy, back in 1968. I was thinking of giving it to her for her birthday which just happens to be Christmas Day but I think I want to keep it to myself.
I hope to keep posting other projects that I do, so I would love you to drop by and check them out.
Until next time, have fun creating.

Hi Everyone, today I'm sharing with you another creation that I made for the Couture Creations blog.
Today I have for you a scrapbooking layout that takes us back to nature. Couture Creations has a wonderful array of dies of leaves and I wanted to use them on a layout. I hope you like the way it turned out as much as I did.
To start I selected a range of matching papers from the Vintage Rose paper pad and cut them into 7cm square pieces and then matted them on a chocolate brown cardstock. My bigger print was cut down to 25cm square and also matted on the brown cardstock.
I then cut several each of the leaf dies and then sprayed them with a matching spritz.
Once I matted the larger piece of patterned paper I sprayed the base with the same spritz I used on the leaves. I then took a bottle of brown spritz and used the applicator to drip the ink over the patterned paper.
Once dry I attached all the mounted smaller squares and then spritzed the entire layout for a second time not holding back.
Prior to attaching the leaves and mounted photo I placed everything where I wanted them to ensure I liked the way it looked. I grabbed a mdf title and few other embellishments from my stash and finished the layout.
Below are closeups of my finished project. I was so happy with how it all came together.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time, happy crafting.

Here's is a post the I created for the Couture Creations blog.
If you are like me you are totally absorbed with your Christmas projects. I finally got hold of some corregated card so am using it on some of my creations. Today I have a gift tag that I made using it as my base. It was so easy, check out the instructions below.
I started with a piece of corregated card and haphazardly painted it white. Once dry I grabbed my silver spray and spritzed the card and then took a matching print from the Couture Christmas papers stack, cut it to a size I liked and also spritzed it. Set them aside to dry.
I used the Conifer Frame and Dasher dies from the Christmas Eve collection and die cut in some glitter cardstock. I love the Couture Creations white flowers, so wherever possible will use them on my projects. To get the look I got, I inked all the edges and centre of the petals in a reddish ink and then sprayed them in a pearl mist. I pretty much drenched the flower so that the ink blended out the edges and got a smooth finish.
Below are closeups of the constructed tag.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
