Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the yummy Color Conspiracy goodies, but haven't been feeling so well the past few days. But before else... would love to share a few more projects that I created with their collection - this time around focusing on the fun and colorful Texturize Collection. I just love the pop of colors against the woodgrain/plank background!

LYB Just Because Collection

Hi Guys,

Back to share a few more projects created using Little Yellow Bicycle Just Because collection.  For these projects, I opted to focus on the red, navy, grey and white colors in the collection and of course adding in some silver with sequins (again).

For this first layout, I started by cutting out the vellum heart pieces using the cameo and then layered a few punched hearts on top. Just love how the vellum adds enough details to the layout without overwhelming everything (subtle touches). Also used the cardstock stickers in place of journaling (they pretty much says it all) and loving the washi tape stickers that are in the collection (tons of designs to choose from).

and a few close ups on the details...

Project Life :: Weeks 3 & 4

Hi Everyone!

I've been meaning to share this for awhile now... thus far I've been keeping up with my PL project on a weekly basis; mostly on Sundays as I look back on the week.  Unfortunately I haven't been very good in sharing it here... promise to do better....

First up is week 3 - this was pretty much lazy kind of week, did a bit of spring clean and then more shopping... more scrapbook supplies and also went on a crazy hunt for brown shoes (have no idea why now, remember wanting to get a pair of brown shoes but strangely ended up with 3 - yes crazy me)...

And for week 4 - the main highlight of the week was the Laneway Festival.  Spending the entire day out in (the blazing) sun listening to some awesome music.

And some random things through out the week... yes more shopping and enjoying some truffle goodness... LOL

Guesting for Color Conspiracy & a Giveaway! *CLOSED*

Hi Everyone!

This month I had the honor to guest design for Color Conspiracy (thank you Maya for this amazing opportunity) and worked with two of their amazing collections: Daily Kate and Texturize (the layouts here are created using the gorgeous Daily Kate collection).  I just love the color combination - blue, yellow and gray and the fun graphic designs of the pattern papers and had these created in no time...

Having some fun with the cameo and with my favorite butterfly punch from EK Success... and yes more sequins!

For my second layout, I kept things simpler but still went with the circular design and was inspired by the blue pattern paper ... love the sun burst and paint splatters designs (I also added more of my own with the studio calico white mist). 

 photo CCMontepulciano1_zps27ab088a.jpg

and am totally addicted to the various wood embellishments and using these in almost all of my projects at the moment...

Some Crate Paper Fourteen Love

Hi Everyone!

Got a few more projects to share that were recently posted on the Crate Paper blog... using the gorgeous and super sweet Fourteen collection.  The first one here is a little something I created using an old frame that I found at the market. It didn't come with a backing but used one of the pattern papers and good old washi tape (that way, I can change it without damaging the paint work).

 photo CPValentine1-001_zps2214682c.jpg

I just adore the mix of colors in this collection and honestly it would be perfect for anything (not only valentine projects)...

 photo CPValentine2-001_zps3b041912.jpg

Some details on the layering and it looks amazing on the wall over my couch...

Webster's Pages Modern Romance Love

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  Hope you guys are having a super sweet day spending with those you love and/or treating yourself to a little something special...

And to add on the sweetness, thought I would share some projects I've recently created using Webster's Pages newest collection Modern Romance. Gorgeous colors and patterns right?

 photo WPTuscany1-001_zps819cfa26.jpg

Having some fun layering away.... check out the mini bags and washi tapes in this collection!

A few more details...

And here's a fun mini album that I created using cardstock as the base and having each of the page being a little longer the previous. This way, I can add embellishments to the sides without having to worry that they would get damage (as they stick out).

Once again using those fun mini bags which are perfect storing all those little extras or tags...
