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. 

Thanks for visiting
Till next week

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. 

Thanks for stopping by

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.

Thanks for stopping by
Till next week
