Merry and Bright

Hi Everyone, 
So nice of you to stop by.

My  page layout today is for "Auzz Trinklets N Kraft "
Its a Christmas in July theme again.
The photo is of my daughter and her Canadian cousin......Fabulous memories of a white Christmas in Canada 2012.





I have used Tim Holtz 'Merriment' paper collection. The background is splattered with gold colour shine , then I added  lots and lots of Shaker mix 'Cherry Pie'. Go HERE to check out all the pretty colour collections of 'Shaker Mix'.I  actually found this page really hard to photograph, because of all the Sparkle!  Can you see the tiny stars...so so cute!  The paper doilies under the photo are die cut.

Its been a busy week.....I have house full of visitors, lots of cooking etc. My nephew is getting married today.

I'll have more time to visit you next week.

Happy Creating

The Puzzle!

Hello.....hope you are having a great week! 

Kraft + Plus has a fun challenge this month....."The Puzzle"
Jigsaw pieces + Kraft
I had all these ideas for a scrapbook layout, but nothing was working.......So I decided on a card! 


The card base is Kraft along with the large Jigsaw piece, which I cut using 'Artist' cricut cartridge. The flower was made using 'Mothers Day Bouquet cricut cartridge then I added a doily and another small flower. 

AND.....Here is my layout that I could not get to work on Kraft..........it looked so much prettier  on white card! 


I used 'Gelatos' to water colour the puzzle pieces. A Sprinkle of pretty bits and pieces to finish it off.

Choose Happy!

Hello,
Its so nice having some spare time to play in my craft space!!
I have one more card to link up to "Kaiser Craft" May challenge using pretty papers from 'Finders Keepers' collection and inspiration from this pretty mood board!

KC MAY 2016

......Choose Happy......


I did a little re-cycling.........the white paper with the bicycle on it is part of the packaging that the collectibles come in!  I think it looks cool stitched to the card, with a paper bow attached above.

Moments

Hey Everyone,
I thought I'd squeeze in one more challenge before the end of the month.
Look how pretty the colours are in this mood board for  May  from D-Lish Scraps.


The sketch was optional but I really liked it..........so here is my page.



The resin Daisies are from D-Lish.  I made the large flowers using my cricut and Art Philosophy cartridge. Last week I was messing around with water colours for a card......I wasn't happy with how it was turning out.......so I cut the card into doily circles, which I used on this layout!

Happy Monday 
Enjoy your week

Deep Raspberry, Dusty Pink, Mint green and a touch of Orange and Brown.

Enjoy the rest of the week Everyone
