Follow Your Heart using
Jillibean Soup Spoonful of Soul
by Kerryn Ffdry

Morning All!
Today I'm sharing my third page created with 
Jillibean Soup Spoonful of Soul.
The colours in this pretty collection were perfect for this photo,
my beautiful niece playing outside while we were on holidays in 2012.
She is such a cutie!

 I started with my norm, Kraft cardstock, but have left it clean for this page.
I have layered the patterned papers under the photo
and then lifted the photo with foam tape.
A few elements have been hand-cut from the papers,
like the buildings and colourful scallops to embellish the page
and I've hand punched a tag as well.

The 2 Crafty Clock Face Frame has been used to highlight my niece.
It has been covered with Wild Honey Distress Paint
and then I've added Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue to the numbers on the clock.

There is plenty of  2 Crafty chipboard foliage to embellish the page. 
I've used 2 Crafty Leafy Twig Branch and cut it into two pieces.
It's been covered with Pine Needles Distress Paint.

The 2 Crafty Spring Flower Bunches have been painted with
Mowed Lawn, Victoria Velvet and Dusty Concord Distress Paint.
The Dusty Concord gave the blooms a few highlights
and then I've layered them over the Leafy Twigs. 

The final chipboard addition to the spray of foliage 
They were covered with Evergreen Bough and Picket Fence Distress Paint.
Once dry, I have added Diamond Stickles to the white part of the shrub.
I have again added foam tape to lift the layers of plants.
The Pea Pod Parts Die-Cuts were then used to add the finishing touches to the page,
small hearts, tiny blooms and the flowers.

The 2 Crafty title Follow Your Heart has been painted with Picket Fence Distress Paint.
I've used foam tape to lift the title to create more dimension.
The final touch is some string on the tag.

Thanks for dropping by today,
hopefully you have enjoyed the project.
Have a fab weekend 
and join us again on Monday fro Fiona's next page.

This view, by Amanda H

Hi everyone,

I love to scrapbook the important moments in life, but also the little moments - like eating hot chips while looking at the Adriatic Sea! I used the PinkFresh Studios Out and About collection to create this page.

I used some bright yellow cardstock from my stash to start this page.

The patterned background paper is Travel icons. Then I cut tags and panels from the Bucket list paper and layered them around the photo.

In the close ups, you will see how I finished with the super cute puffy stickers and some 49 & Market Wishing bubbles. I also added some black pen doodling and some splatters of yellow watercolours.

Thanks for looking today! Hope you find time to scrapbook, even those little moments!

Remember with Kaisercraft Enchanted by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Sharing another layout created with the whimsical Enchanted Collection by Kaisercraft. 

I used some of the left over papers and embellishments that I used on my previous page to create this layout, with a new piece for my background. I love the pretty floral on the Utopia paper and used that as the focus and then bought in a little more red for the red in my photo. 
How cute is the little wooden door? Had to add it to the page with some pretty Green Tara flowers coming out from behind it. Then adding a little journaling ephemera piece, and a curio. 

On the other corner another curio and some ephemera. 
The little quotes on the bottom of the papers are always a great way to add some journaling to your page. I have cut it up to fit on a few lines. 

Thanks for stopping by
Till next week

Happy using Penelope Dee Diamond Layne by Kerryn Fry

Hi everyone!
Today I'm sharing the first layout I've created using 
Penelope Dee Diamond Layne
A pretty collection with a gorgeous colour palette and simple patterns.
A very rare photo of just me!
I've changed the photo to B&W as my jacket has bright ornage on it
and I wanted to let the soft colours of the papers shine through.
The photo was taken on last year's snow trip
and snowflakes!
I started with a simple & plain Kraft cardstock background,
perfect with the colours in the papers.
I've layered the papers, using the darker papers as the focus points. 
Then the fussy cutting began!
I loved the leaves on the Precious paper
and used them as the main embellishment.

Loads of foam tape used on the page.
I've lifted the photo and the the words for dimension.
All of the leaves have been raised with foam tape.

The little flowers were cut from the Radiant paper
and add to the cluster of leaves with foam tape.
I've made use of the bottom strip of the papers,
using the diamond strip across the base of the photo.

I loved the triangles on the back of the Radiant paper
and have used them on the cardstock as an extra focus.
They have been lifted with foam tape. 

I've used a gold gel pen as a highlight to the page.
Some faux stitching and some small dots in different spots
I also used it on some of the words.
Then using the Kaisercraft Tiny Dot stamp, I have add some subtle touches
to the background in random spots.

The 2 Crafty title Happy Days has been modified just to use the word Happy.
I have inked it with Distress Archival Ink
and then stamped with gold ink and Tiny Dot stamp.
The sub title was added with tiny alpha stickers from my collection.

A simple page with lots of dimension.
Thank you visiting the blog today,
enjoy your weekend and stay warm.

Best memories, by Amanda H

Hi everyone!
Thanks for joining me today for my Wednesday share day.
 With some stamping and Kaisercraft Antiquities collection, paired with some of the 
cool elements from Celebr8, I was able to create this page.

I started with some white and kraft cardstock for the base.
 I also used these papers to double mount the photos.

For the main patterned paper, I chose the newspaper print of the Limited Edition paper 
from the Antiquities collection.

Using the Studio Light stamp set, I added stamping to the page with black ink. I used hearts and textured lines from the stamp set. For some colour I painted the hearts and elements using mustard and pale blue watercolours. I also added splatters! 

Let's look at some close ups for how I finished the page.

For the title, I used the "Best memories" taken from a Celebr8 matt board. This has been layered
 with stickers from the Antiquities Sticker Book and the geo-tag arrows from the Celebr8 pack.

In all of these close ups, you will see how I layered the Kaisercraft Antiquities stickers and
 Celebr8 matt board elements over the stamping.

I love the natural colours in this layout.
 A great way to share these lovely photos with my girls.
Thanks for looking,

#SELFIE with Pinkfresh Studio
Just a Little Lovely by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

So happy to have gotten to create with the gorgeous new collection from 
Pinkfresh Studio - Just a little Lovely. 

Love the cool background paper that has this rainbow effect, an easy background to combine with an assortment of paper layers. Lots of colour going on so I have used black and white photos - a couple of selfies. 
Lots of little words and quotes on the "Story" paper, I've cut the love out from that paper and added some of the stunning acetate die-cut flowers. 
I've also used the cardstock die-cut ephemera to embellish my layout, finishing it off with a 2crafty title and some enamel dots. 
Thanks for stopping by

Superstars using Simple Stories

Good morning everyone!
Today's project is my second page created with the travel collection,
Simple Vintage Traveller by Simple Stories
No travel photos, but the colours in this range worked well with the photo.
The photo is Master 15 hanging out with his Uncle,
both pretending to be super cool.
Another messy background this week, but I am loving it.
Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, add Distress Oxide Ink and Water.
I started with darker colours, Gathered Twig and Faded Jeans.
The easy technique of using plastic packaging,
swipe the ink pad, spray with water and add randomly to the cardstock.
I've made sure to dry each layer to stop it mixing.
I've added Bundled Sage with the same technique.
The next layer to the background was added using 
the Crafter's Workshop Template and Antique Linen.
I have applied it to the page with a sponge 
and then dried with heat tool.
The final layer on the background has been added using 
the Kaisercraft Textured Stamp and Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide.
There is plenty of 2 Crafty on this page!
The larger 2 Crafty Polaroid Frame has been covered patterned paper
I have used it to cover some background people in the photo
and put the focus on the boys.
I have added some doodling with a gold pen. 

The die cut leaves had a subtle embossed texture,
I have used the gold pen to highlight the veins of the leaves.

The 2 Crafty Weather Bits have been covered with Distress Paint.
The clouds was painted with Antique Linen
and the sun with Tea Dye.
Once they were dry, I have stamped the sun with the 

I have used the 2 Crafty Filmstrip as the base for the title.
It was painted with a mixture of Faded Jeans and Pine Needles Distress Paints.
I have backed the filmstrip with patterned paper.
The 2 Crafty Autumn Leaves were covered with Peeled Paint Distress Paint.
Once the paint had dried, I outlined the veins on the leaves with the gold pen.

The 2 Crafty title Superstar was painted with Gathered Twig Distress Paint.
I have taken the 's' from another title piece.
The final effect on the chipboard was done with gold ink and the Tiny Dot stamp.
The subtitle has been added with alpha stickers from my stash.

That's all for today, hope you have enjoyed the page.
Have a great weekend & stay warm.
Please pop back on Monday for Fiona's next page.
