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!


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

Till next week

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. 

Thanks for stopping by
Till next week

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. 


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:


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
