Hi ..
I thought I would share some peeks at what I've been up to lately 
And if you have been following me in Instagram you would see I've been doing more designs for cut files

Cards | Sassy Scrappers

This week at sassy I've created cards 
using some of the patterned paper from Bella blvd just add colour 
The first card I created I was thinking about our moodboard for this month

I absolutely loved this heart paper 
I backed it on some red cardstock and
I got out my fiskars lace border punch and punched each top and bottom 

I fussy cut some cute flowers from another bit of patterned paper from Bella blvd collection 
I was thinking a cluster of 3 so I added a little heart chipboard 

And using the heidi swapp die cut word lovely as my sentiment 

Just has to add some chipboard to the bottom of the card

And for my second card I added the we are memory keepers vellum over my whole white card

And machine stitched the seem so it really could be a mini book card
I die cut a Polaroid frame from one of the just add colour patterned papers and added some 

chipboard and stickers from the just add colour sticker sheet

you & Me layout - Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,
Anita here ! Sharing more Bella Blvd 
If you like lots of bright beautiful colours then bella blvd have some great collections 
Pop on over to the sassy store and check them out...

In the past few weeks I've been looking back through photos of my 3 daughters 
When they where little, I guess time has passed so quickly it doesn't really feel that long ago..
I've printed this photo of my daughter eve she is about month old and a fussy little thing 
I remember this photo well as she had been up quite a few times during the night and she had fallen asleep on my chest...it's the little moments that take you back.

I used the stars stencil with texture paste and watercolour on my background 
The vellum over the stripped blue patterned paper added a different look and I like how muted it looks .

I tucked some of the just add colour patterned papers and added some yellow watercolour to the stars
And a doily to soften the blue And added a little pink .
I loved adding all the little elements .

The stickers are bright and fun and the alphabet stickers give that verity of colour 
And the sequins added a pop of colour across the page.

Life is better with a smile | kraft plus challenge

This morning I woke up early..and wanted to start the day bright and fun
And I've been eyeing off this moodboard challenge over the weekend and thought I needed to give it ago!

A Mustard Explosion!
The Criteria:
Use Kraft as your background
Draw inspiration from the photo
Use Yellow Paint on your creation.

So here is what I come up with
I wanted to use a big k on my layout I've used my cameo to cut it out
and this photo I had previously printed 
The paint wasn't as bright as it was when it was wet it's like a light yellow almost like a light lemon 

I pulled out a few papers along with some flowers I had fussy cut in my stash

Just had to fussy cut that heart of so cute 
With all the flowers and leaves

I think I've been liking my layouts more simple but still with lots of colours 

I can't believe how quickly this layout came together 
Thanks for the inspiration I totally needed a bright fun challenge
