Scrappin: Love

Hello friends!
I am here today to share with you a page I created with APOCD cupcake kit along lots of sprays, wax crayons and water colour pencils.
 I love the stamp that came in the kit and started my page with that inspiration. I had no direction at all, other than stamping the image and then I wanted to use my wax crayons to colour a few circles in. I then wanted to created a shadow all the straight line to blend it in a little more.

I then sprayed some Heidi swap colour shine and splatters.
When I added the circles to the background, I used water colour pencil to soften the edges of the circles and to blend with my background.

Somehow I ended with a page that is bright and colourful.

NOT INCLUDED: flowers, gold bow,  butterflies

I hope you have a little experiment with some mediums.

Cards: Lets dance

Hello friends!
I have been having lots of fun with my first Design team kit from A piece of cake designs.  I got this really bright colour cupcake kit this month.

The colours are nice and bright. I will admit, I was a bit 'stand-offish' at first because I don't tend to use brights a lot. I admire all those creativity people that can pull of brights so easy.
This time I decided to start with to cards.
It was a perfect way for me to jump start the creativity and get a feel for the kit I guess. To see the endless possibilities.

With this card I started with the pinks.

NOT INCLUDED: Gold bow, flowers and frame.

I really wanted to get to a feel for the black in the kit.
I used it subtle in my layering.

NOT INCLUDED: Flower and bow.

I hope I have inspired today.

Cards: Trends

Hello there lovely people.

My boy has just returned back to Kindy for his final term of 2014. The last two weeks of school holidays I choose to not do too much creativity. I wanted to spend some time 'present' with my boys and relax because this Term 4 is going to be busy. Not to mention the silly season fast approaching.
Anyways,  I did spent a little time looking at www and noticing a few trends.

when it comes to trends, I can be on to sit back and watch.. as such, or think, I should try that and be a scaredy cat and then choose to not try.. so anyway.. .I had a light bulb moment and decided to try a trend or two out on a  card. After all its like a mini layout to me.

{special delivery}

I notice more and more the trend of gold and pastel. Especially in a few new release of paper ranges coming and the festive releases. I am not a comfortable in using metallic, especially gold. But this little card came a beauty and  I am keen as a jelly bean to try gold again!!

{here and now}

The bows! I think most new releases have embellishments that have some sort of bows. I love bows, I will admit it, but when it comes to adding them to pages, it always the last thing I add it. Why? Because I am so uncertain if they work...  I always love adding a ribbon bow or twine, but when it comes to paper bows of sorts, I struggle.. I know, silly. but  I love the paper bows so think all I need to do is just keep trying and adding them.

What else do you see trending?

Happy Tuesday xo

Memory Planner: August

today I am sharing with you my august memory planner.
This month was all about family. I wanted to reflect in my memory planner this month love, gratitude and care.
It was made easy by using the free Heidi Swapp printables again.

I had a lots of photos I want to include, so I made a few flaps to add a few extra photos.

I really hope you are all enjoying my memory planner this year.
