Wander with 49&Market Wherever Collection by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Playing with the new 49&Market collection - Wherever this week.
I love this one, the colours are fabulous!

Wander



I started with my base paper and then added the border to add a little more of the
 orangey brown to my layout, as this is the colours of my photos.  My main pic I have
 matted with one of the acetate frames from the Acetate Assortment pack. I've used the
 paper advertising strips from the base of these two papers as a strip under my photos. 

Next I've used the acetate film strips from the same pack, and one from the older Color Swatch Toast. I like that you can mix and match well with these collection - I've added
some other bits from similar collections- orange leaves from Gardenia and tag
from Nature Study. 


Of course super cute embellishments in this range too - like these cute ephemera
pieces from Mini Laser Cut Elements pack:


And of course fabulous chipboard words for titles and subtitles:


Thanks for stopping by

Super Boy Power with Pebbles Cool Boy Collection by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Time for a boy post this week, featuring some mixed media and the adorable Pebbles collection - Cool Boy:

Super Boy Power



This week I thought I might start off showing my background - I've used two Vicki Boutin stencils and some Distress Oxide to create this. If you look at my design you can see I knew where wanted my paper to go, in fact I created the paper layers first then lay down on the cardstock to get a rough idea. 

I started with the word stencil (old Vicki Boutin) using Distress Oxide in Twisted Citron, then once it dried I have used another VB stencil and Distress Oxide in Salty Ocean - I have used the Ranger Blending tool - perfect for randomly adding the circles, then finishing with some splatters. 




With the base done I've placed down my paper layer main pieces then added some super cute embellishments from the ephemera pack -these are the cutest! My tag is fussy cut from the Ephemera paper, added a hole punch and some twine from my stash. 



Love the mix of vellum and cardstock in the pack! 
I fussy cut the cool from my patterned paper to add to this chipboard tag. 



Finishing off the page with the title Super Boy Power from the ephemera pack.

18 with Uniquely Creative Flowering Utopia by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone


Back again with a layout using Uniquely Creative Flowering Utopia to compliment my page from a few weeks ago. 

18


For this layout I have used another patterned background with lots of pretty pinks and florals. I've added my photo with some pink paper layers then fussy cut the gorgeous floral hot air balloon from the Happy paper 


Next I have added some more florals from the ephemera pack along with some butterflies and cute ephemera words to finish off my page. 


And a simple 18 as the title after going through my stash and choosing gold to compliment the foiling in the background paper. 

Thanks for visiting
Till next week

Together with Vicki Boutin Discover + Create by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Back this week with another layout created using the awesome Vicki Boutin collection Discover + Create:

Together







For this layout I started with the Needlework paper, for the cute hoop which I fussy cut then decided I liked it on the same background paper so ended up using another piece and mounting my hoop over the top for some dimension. This also allowed me to tuck some super cute flowers - a mix of fussy cutting and ephemera, under the frame. 



Next I used the envelope from the 3x4 paper and fussy cut around it to have the envelope sticking out partially under my photo. 





I added the ephemera camera before continuing with embellishments from the sticker sheet, ephemera icons and Daily reminder thickers. 



Finishing off with the perfect title by 2Crafty - Together

Cute and Cheeky with Vicki Boutin Discover + Create by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

This weeks layout is created with the fabulous Discover + Create collection by Vicki Boutin. Absolutely love this collection!

Cute and Cheeky


For this layout I have focused on the blues in the paper with a hint of red and a pop of black. When I was sorting papers I had the blue and book print together, liked the combo so cut down my book paper to fit along side the blue. Then I added some distress oxide in Stormy Sky & Tumbled Glass to the background. 



My design utilises one of the journaling squares from the 3x4 paper alongside my two 3x4 photos. I've fussy cut the clipboard from the same paper to tuck behind one of my photos and bring the red across. I've added a strip of the blue paper and the advertising strip to the bottom of my photos. 



Next was lots of embellishments - the white flowers from the Icon ephemera pack - I cut the larger one to tuck top and bottom. Also from the Icon ephemera pack - mushrooms, blue flowers, take note sign and butterfly. A cute tab from the foam sticker sheet and finishing with the funky alpha stickers.

Best Birthday Ever with Uniquely Creative Flowering Utopia by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

This week I'm creating with the very pink and floral Flowering Utopia by Uniquely Creative! Gorgeous range, perfect for scrapping my eldests recent 18th birthday:

Best Birthday Ever




For this layout I have chosen a base paper with gorgeous florals around the border edge so with that in mind as the focus I have just added some light stamping using a butterfly stamp and tiny dot stamp in Orchid ink which is slightly darker than the paper to add some extra interest. I have then added some paper layers to my photo.

Next I have added embellishments from the creative cuts pack around my photo - a flamingo because they are a favourite of my daughters. The pack also contains some phrases making a perfect title and subtitle to finish off my page.

Barbie Movie with Photoplay Fashion Dreams by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Back again this week with my 2nd page using the cute Fashion Dreams collection
 by Photo Play! 

Barbie Movie





This paper was perfect for documenting the girls and I wearing pink to see the Barbie Movie last year - just a quick selfie photo but a nice memory all the same! 

For the layout I teamed up my pink papers around my photo and added some pops of blue then created my background to co-ordinate using Vicki Boutin 
Cosmic Watercolour Set on Vicki Boutin Foundations paper and a VB stencil. 

First I used the plastic bag technique to add my water colour - drying off the excess with paper towel and then letting it dry off naturally. Next I came in the my heart stencil using the same watercolours but less diluted. Once that was dry I've added a little of the gold onto an old  text stamp to add some texture. 
 


Next I have added lots of embellishments from the ephemera pack and added some shipping tags with some twine:


Then I have dug into the stash for some pink and blue thickers to make my title and added some journaling strips from my printer onto cardstock.

So Much Fun with Photoplay Fashion Dreams Collection by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

A fun one to share today using the super cute Fashion Dreams collection by Photoplay.

So Much Fun



When I saw this collection I knew it would be just perfect for some fun photos I had from a trip to the Grounds with this fun doll box. Silly fun doing various poses. 

Clearly the theme here is Pink! So I have used the pink background and then added a strip of the fashion dolls along the bottom with some lighter pink to break it up. 


I've used the ephemeras embellishments from the collection to add some quotes and frames, then added some pink film strips before adding small flowers in white to stand out on the page.  


My title is a mix of alphas in white again to stand out on the pink!

Christmas Wishes with Vicki Boutin Peppermint Kisses by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Happy New Year!

I'm finishing off my 2022 Christmas photos with this layout using more
Vicki Boutin Peppermint Kisses Collection:

Christmas Wishes


I had to use the plaid paper to match my eldests plaid skirt in this photo and the black works well with my dress too! I've added some pink for her top and the traditional green and reds too!

Love these ephemera trees, giving the large pink one a foam sticker star!
Then adding some journaling with the alphas.
.

Love cutting up the shipping tags to cluster under my papers - great to add that hidden journaling too!
Some added embellishments from the sticker book, ephemera and Ho, Ho, Ho thickers. 



My title is an older Vicki Boutin collection - works perfectly as the fonts match. I finished with some snowflakes from the current thickers pack for that subtle bit of texture to the white cardstock background.

Christmas Magic with Vicki Boutin Peppermint Kisses by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Back with another Christmas layout using the awesome Vicki Boutin Peppermint Kisses collection to document some more of my Christmas pics from last year:

Christmas Magic




For this layout I created a background using the green and gold water colour paints from Vicki Boutin Printshop collection. The green I have used the plastic bag technique to add to layout then once dry I have used a stencil to add the gold stars. Finishing with some gold splashes. 




I've layered up some papers - a large strip and then a torn piece before hitting the embellishments. I've used 3 baubles from the ephemera pack to be a focal point across the top of the page - adding some green twine to each one. 


I've then used some more ephemera and some foam stickers to add a few more embellishment clusters 


I've finished my page with a title from the Ho Ho Ho Puffy stickers pack. You can see a bit more detail of my inking and stenciling here:
