New stuff to share :)

Hello!  I am stopping by with a new Shimmerz creation today.  This was my first time using the new Dimensionz products and I must say, they are soooo cool!!!  So so easy to use aswell!!
Here is my list of Shimmerz used on this layout:
Dimensionz in Orange U Pretty, Streets of Gold and Blue Lagoon
Texturez in Patina
Spritz in Treasured Hyme
Vibez in Egg Noggin, Jeni B Bleu and Before Dawn
Absolutely love this layout and how it turned out not to mention how much fun it was to make :)  I was also inspired by Prima BAP for November in which I followed the sketch.....yes it is in!!!!
"Love This"

Lots of yummy Prima flowers here, some new, some old :)

Absolutely love the new resins!  Just gorgeous!  I have also used one of the new brick pathway stencils....awesome effect from this one :)

Look at those gorgeous new Dimensionz, love these colours!

I did a little stamping on this one aswell.  The black contrast really adds a lot of depth to this page.

My next project I wanted to share today is a Mini Album I made for baby Sianne.  My BFF's little girl is turning 1!!  The theme of her party is cupcakes so I just had to make the cover a cupcake for her.  I used the new Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Flea Market along with some older Crate papers. 
 "1 - Mini Album"

I love the clips in the Maggie Holmes collections, I have been dying to use them and all of these other pretty, girly things!!

I filled her album with pictures and little facts and firsts!
I used a little bit of Hambly too!

 Just a few pages to share with you.  You get the idea :)

In other scrappy news, I am thrilled to share that I will be apart of the Once Upon a Sketch design team for 2014!!!  Thankyou Nadia, this is going to be fun :)

Happy Friday :)

Hi!!!  I thought I would pop by with a couple of things today.  So last weekend I managed to create something for a challenge.  I don't ever seem to have the time to do challenges but this one I just had to do.  This months sketch at Scrapfriends is just awesome!!!  Wow, who doesn't love feathers atm??  Thanks for the inspiration Scrapfriends, I have always been a lover of your sketches, happy to say I have done one now :)
So here is my layout.  I have used some Glitz, AC and Crate here.  Plus some gorgeous 2 crafty chipboard.  I added a little more to the sketch to eliminate the white space, you know me, I just can't do white space!!!  I just adore this amazing gals work and have always wanted to make a big arrow like Miss Wally so thought this was a perfect layout to do it on!!!
"Piggy Back Ride"

I loved the stickers out of the Glitz collection Wild and Free.  I even loved the subtle amount of pink in it.  I added a little pink with my Shimmerz pots and think this layout is far from being girly even though I used pink.  Just a little hint and it looks super cool on a boys layout! 

I used some Feathers from 2 Crafty Chipboard.  They are so so awesome, can't get enough!  Plus some diecut feathers from Studio Calico.   I also bought some white feathers from a $2 shop and dipped them in gold glitter!!!

I placed one of the arrow stickers from the Wild and Free sticker sheet on the wood clip.

More gold dipped feathers.......

I wrapped the feathers around a skewer stick with twine and then continued to wrap the twine the full length of the stick.  Layered washi tape, stamping and masking.  Plus loads of paper layers under my photo.

Lots of Shimmerz work underneath there.........

Secondly today, I have a new canvas to share using Shimmerz.  Here are the products I used:
Texturez in Sandy Stone
Enamelz in Gold Digger
Spritz in Carribean Sunset and Mango Madness
Vibez in Egg Noggin and Before Dawn
Shimmerz in Coal, Candle Light and Island Salsa
I really love this saying, its just a perfect reminder to us all, to have more patience and to be kinder than necessary! 
"Love is Patient, Love is Kind"

I have used lots of Prima and look there are those gold dipped feathers.....addicted much??? Plus I have used a 2Crafty chipboard birdcage :)

I used a brick pathway as my background mask with modelling paste.

All of these Shimmerz products together are just gorgeous and then add a touch of black to add some depth.  You can even see the colour on the feathers.

So has anyone had a chance to get their hands on these new goodies from Shimmerz yet?  I have only just received them myself and hoping to have my first play with them in the next few days!!!!  They look fantastic and omg Blue Lagoon is just gorgeous!  I think it will be my fave :)
Also if you mention my name in the comments section whilst at checkout you will receive one FREE bottle of the new DIMENSIONZ!!!!!!  How cool is that, just by mentioning my name (or any Shimmerz Designer for that matter) :)
Go to the Shop HERE

Okay, that's me for today, nearly time to collect the big boy from glad the school year is coming to an end, we are in need of a big break!!!!  But it also means I am going to have 2 big boys at school next year.....eeekkkk!!!!
Have a great weekend xoxo

Evening everyone!  Just stopping by with my last creation as Guest Creative at Maja Designs last month.  I used the Crea Diem collection and this time creating a beach themed layout.  The papers were all fairly neutral meaning I could add lots of my fave colours to it.  I did love how the b/w paper matched the rocks in my picture though.  I always try to match my pictures to my colours of my layout, that is always intentional :)  or maybe I just dress my subjects in colours I like to scrap with!!!

Lots of Shimmerz and mixed media work.  Gesso, stencil then mist......seems to be the routine for now :)

Some paper tearing and Enamel dots.

Lots of shells too, I love that these shells are always off the beach at Elliott!  They are so gorgeous down there, always have lots of texture to them and holes!  I also added some Sinamay and Cheesecloth.

Okay that is it for today, I have a fun day tomorrow, Melbourne Cup day at Kindy!!!  I can't wait for my fascinator to be made by the kids :)
Take care xo
