summer fun layout

So today I decided to play again I'm having way too much fun with this collection 
I'm loving the bright yellow and blue with the pops of pink with the floral patterned paper 
Perfect for any layout really ... this photo is of bobby boy my mums dog who loves to play frisbee at the beach
His favorite thing to do in summer so as today is one of those rainy days I'm thinking summer fun ..
And the yellow in this collection just screamed have bright 
and fun just like the beautiful prima monthly mood board 


I started with matting my cardstock on this striped patterned paper then bending the corners of 2 of the cardstock and tucking in so die cut doilies to add some interest in 2 corners then I machine stitched around the boarder 

Then I gathered stripes I cut from one of the patterned papers that had borders on the back
And I started layering then in different ways and different lengths 

I then I fussy cut some flowers out and matted my photo on some of the 3x4 cut apart cards
And adding to my layout along with a flower from the collection and ephemera for my title from the die cut pack 

I die cut a doilies and added them under the layers of my photo 
I then added some puffy stickers around the photo 

And a few chipboard bits here and there then I flicked white and pink mist across the layout

layouts for shop and crop kit club DT

Hi their shop and crop peeps 
Happy scrappy Saturday today I'm sharing 2 layouts using the simply divine collection from 
My minds eye in bloom it's one of those collections you can get so many beautiful layouts out of and with a really beautiful colour palette...with my first layout I wanted the design to go right down the middle so I started on layering down the centre 

Adding a strip of floral patterned paper first then adding my photo and layers
After adding the photo layers I started adding some of the chipboard at the top and bottom 

Then around the photo giving it more of a dimensional look 

Then a few strips of patterned paper on the left hand side to make it pop

With my second layout I chose a simple design going across the page 

Then adding my photo layers on the left hand side keeping it really open and simple 

I fussy cut the flower from one of the patterned papers and adding it with pop dots
To give it dimension on the right hand side I also popped a chipboard tag beside the flower to add more colour 

And then I add a date chipboard and stamped the date

I hope you have enjoyed my layout inspiration today

Hello i love you Layout | Prima fun

Hi there, 
So yesterday I had an idea I wanted to try using a silhouette cut out anchor 
Theirs a fun design on one of the patterned papers from the ST. Tropez collection a anchor surrounded in flowers

And I really wanted to try out the design using fussy cut flowers and flowers from the rose quartz collection 
And to get the anchor to stand out a bit but still blend with the background I used a stencil and used texture paste

Then I added a little bit of pink watercolor and gold watercolor around the anchor and over the textured stencil image then I popped it on heaps of foam dots and added it to the middle of my floral patterned paper 
Then I add fussy cut flowers and and more flowers around the anchor 

I add my photo down the bottom with more flowers and fussy cut flowers along with a die cut doilies 
Tucked underneath the photo layers 

Adding a little bit of paper twine around the photo

Lovely Layout | Prima challenge

Hi there,
So today I got my happy mail that I ordered I was super excited to play with the new 
St. Tropez collection from prima and how fabulous is this colour palette 
Just perfect for those ocean views layouts I got this shot of the waves crashing on the rocks around a lighthouse 
At the Sunshine Coast while visiting my daughter for the day so we decided to go look around at the lighthouse And we went on a few nature walks it was a fun day....,

I started with white cardstock then applying texture to a stencil 
Then adding watercolour blue and yellow 
Matted the white cardstock on patterned paper and machine stitched the around the boarder 

Then I cut strips of patterned paper up and layered them until I had a nice cluster of patterned papers 
Then I stapled my title to my photo and added embellishments around the photo flicking white paint across the layout 

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my layout today 

mixmedia layout fun

Hi there..
I was so excited to find out that Prima where have their yearly DT call 
I decided to throw my hat in the ring and try it out as I'm finishing up on the kaisercraft team next month 
I thought it was about time to move on and explore new adventures so I've been playing with watercolour on layouts and I've learnt how to add the watercolour without making my cardstock buckle up to much
I'm finding it so fun and relaxing.. this has to be on of the colour combinations I love pink and yellow 

Thanks for checking out my layout

you are my Happiness layout | Kaisercraft DT

Hi there, 
Today I'm sharing a layout using the keepsake collection 
This month our challenge is to use circles 
So I decided to pull out my circle nesting dies and die cut some pretty patterned papers 

I started off by layering the die cut circles across my cardstock 
Using the keepsake paper pad 

I used the flowers die cut and a floral sticker from the sticker sheet 
cut it in 3 bits and tucked it under the circles to add little clusters of flowers 
I also used the stamp set and stamped a few film strips at the top and bottom corner of my layout 

I added clusters around my photo 
And a little bit of twine in a bow 

I used the charcoal mist and flicked it around the layout 
Then I added my title using the stamp set

I add a few more flowers clusters with the circles
