Love my Boys

There's a gorgeous moodboard challenge over at Jot Magazine this month. I always love their moodboards but this time was a valentines theme which I love more than anything so I played along. My layout background paper is from the Moonstruck Pink Paislee collection, and a whole lot of bits & pieces from the Crate Paper Heart Day collection and Crate Paper Hello Love.

From the moodboard I look the following elements:
the colours
Marquee Lights (on the heart at the bottom)
Roses (poking out from the bottom left of photo)

Thanks for stopping by, happy scrapping

Believe in your Selfie

This month I'm on the Single Page team at Stick It Down and fell in love when I saw the sketch above that I had to work with this time.

I knew straight away that all those circles could be a cut file and so I went looking. I found a heart border in the Silhouette Design Store (called Outline Heart Border) and resized, repeated and flipped until I had a cut file I was happy with. I cut it and then backed every heart with papers from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee. Those gorgeous metallic paints are by Imagination Crafts (Starlights).

Thanks so much for looking and go and play along at Stick It Down.

Anchor Down & Stay a While

Jot Magazine is definitely a favourite when it comes to scrap magazines these days and I have had layouts in it for the last two months in a row which I've loved seeing. Anyway, they have a lovely moodboard challenge for January and I was inspired by it.

For Anchor Down & Stay a While, I used paints (metallic Starlights paints by Imagination Crafts) and standard watercolours to make the background, then layered up using some papers by Dear Lizzy
'Saturday' collection and fussy cut some clouds from Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Endless Summer'. I also used up a few bits from the chipboard sheet of  'Cool Kid' by Crate Paper.

Happy scrapping!! xx

My Stick it Down Debut

I have recently joined the fabulous Stick It Down design team, I am alternating between their double page team and their single page team. This month I am in double-mode therefore have a double layout to share. Such a fabulous sketch by Laura to play with.

I've used some of the new Christmassy collection by Simple Stories which I got from Hey Little Magpie of course :)

Head on over and join in with this month's sketches, the single sketch and the card sketch are fab too.

Be Inspired by a Sketch

Hey there, we have a brand new monthly challenge over on the GoGo Getaway blog and this month I'm setting the challenge and it's a sketch. I love a sketch, it just sparks the creativity and is often the starting point of a great layout.

Here are a few sneak peeks of my sample layout made with the sketch. To see the full layout head over to the GoGo Getaway blog or the GoGoGetaway FB group which is where you can play along and be in with a chance of winning 1000 Hey Little Magpie points - such a fantastic prize!

Happy scrapping and good luck with the challenge :)

Stick It Down

Hey there, just a quick layout from me today using paper strips from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection. I followed a fab sketch by the Stick it Down girls - the large letter really appealed to me :)

I recently took a Paige Evans class and she taught us to cover a large shape in paper strips so I re-hashed the same technique on this letter.
