More Glitz "Sunshine in my soul" - with Linda Eggleton

Good morning everyone....how is everyone pulling up after Christmas?
I hope you all had a fabulous day filled with treasured memories :)
I'm back again today to share my last creations for December.
A layout using Glitz's gorgeous "Sunshine in my soul" collection
and a card  using some of my leftovers from the Kaisercraft "Key to my heart" collection.
So first up is the layout....
"Cliffs of Moher"
This really was a gorgeous collection to create with.  After starting with some template work on my base, using Prima Crackle stencil, I then based my layout on a sketch over at PageDrafts....but just added the random cut up circles from the 2 Crafty circular panel over my page.
Pic is of DH & I on our holiday in Ireland, with the Cliffs of Moher in the background. 

Here is a close up of my main cluster...Manor House & Green Tara flowers, Flutterby Designs Flair button & stickers from the Alphabet & words sticker sheet...plus a few die cut leaves, all layered in around each other.

And another small cluster with Green Tara flowers & 2 Crafty chipboard, plus you get a good view here of the textured template work....using modelling paste & a Prima stencil, once I worked out where the papers etc were going to sit on my page.

Title using alpha stickers from the alphabet & Words sticker sheet....and some  journaling, straight onto the patterned paper this time! (a rarity for me)...plus you can see the 2 Crafty Shrub piece, where I've dabbed it with modelling paste, then coloured it with gelatos & lightly inked.

Here you can see a bit of a close up of the circles that I cut out from the centre of the 2 Crafty Circular panel that I used on my last DT layout....and for this layout, I've spread them randomly over the layout.  I first coated the circles in gesso, then roughly dabbed on some modelling paste to add some texture, and finished off the same as the shrub piece above
Now for the card...
"Welcome Olivia"

Not your traditional type of baby card....but I love it and so did my Niece who recently had her first baby <3

A bit of a close up of the main cluster...with a paper doily as the base, then layered on top are the hearts from the sticker sheet, a diecut butterfly from the Collectables pack, Manorhouse & Green Tara flowers, some die cut leaves....all treated with some Clear Rock Candy Stickles.
Thanks so much for dropping by today....and I'm looking forward to sharing more with you all in the new year.  Here's to a happy & creative 2014!
