Little Mommy - Felicity Jane (Jeana collection)

Hallo there.  I am sharing a page today of my gorgeous youngest grandbaby and his big sister.  Leane is a real little mommy and I wanted to document how cute and caring she is with Kian.

 I must be honest and say that I adored using this collection on 6 pages.  It was perfect for both feminine and masculine pages.

Some close ups:
 I love to challenge myself to use the border punches in my stash.  A page would also not be complete without some hand stitching.

 I die cut the "Real life moments" from one of the journaling cards.  The flocked white floral is just gorgeous and I am very tempted to hoard it.

 The green banner is also cut from a journaling card.

 I fussy cut a lot of flowers from the floral patterned paper.  They are the perfect embellishments.

 The rubber bow charm and "dream" chipboard circle is from an older collection.

 I outlined the puffy alpha stickers to define them.

I used a lot of foam squares and dots to create some dimension.

Lovin' this place - CSI295 - Felicity Jane (Jeana)

Hello my dear friends.  It is mid month reveal on Color Story Inspiration.  I used the Felicity Jane (Jeana kit) to make this page.

The case file:

This is how I solved the case:

The Scheme:  I tried to stick to the scheme.

Evidence:  I used the case file in the traditional way.  Woodgrain pattern, thin strips (banners); black and white patterns, triangles, string , stencil scallops, decorative borders, 

Testimony: I documented something about music. Our men folk went to the Mighty Men Conference and Lukas wanted to meet the worship leader, Retief Burger. While Lukas was waiting for the adults to finish talking, Retief sneaked up on Lukas and his father captured these cute photos.

Some close ups:
 I cut the scalloped circle with the Silhouette Cameo.  I border punched one of the 3x4 cards to use for the journaling.

 All embellishments and stamps are by Felicity Jane.

 The stencil that I applied texture paste to is by Prima and I added glitter to it while it was stille wet.  The "lovin, this place"is also a 3x4 card that I die cut into a circle and then attached to a scalloped die cut circle.

 I used the manufacturers stips to cut the banners and added some puffy sticker banners to it.

This isn't a colour combination I tend to go for, but I love how fresh it looks.

You do You - Lady Pattern Paper - Sister TRIBE

Have you seen the beautiful new Sister TRIBE collection by Lady Pattern Paper?  My favourite paper from this collection is the Sister TRIBE collection is the beautiful ‘Tiles’ paper. I cut apart an entire sheet to create this page!
I used the Kraft Essentials cardstock for the background. First I outlined the edges of each square and rectangle with navy blue ink. Then I applied some texture paste through the Mandala mask  to three areas of the page and once it was dry I started piecing together the tiles onto the page.

I heat embossed the Lantern chipboard with white embossing powder.

This chipboard was also dressed with white embossing powder.

 And then I used circle dies to cut circles for the lollipop flowers. For this, I used the B side of the Sister TRIBE Trellis paper with the four 6×6 pattern blocks.

I added a 4×6 photo and embellished with the lollipop flowers some paper flowers, chipboard and puffy hearts.

Be sure to get this gorgeous collection from your local scrapbook store before it is all sold out.

Sleepy Time with Lady Pattern Paper Travel Buddies

The whimsical new Travel Buddies collection is perfect to create baby pages. I decided to use the pretty clouds paper that is the B side of Travel Buddies Gypsy Life as a background.

I prepared my background with a yellow stenciled sunburst and then I used a star stencil and applied modelling paste over the sunburst. While it dried I cut out all the fussy cut elements I wanted to use on my page.

I fussy cut the Elements from Travel Buddies Fly scrapbooking paper. I also cut the one little cable car from the Cable Car paper. I also cut the little mouse block from Road Trip and matted it on white card stock. I used a 4 x 4-inch photo and first matted it on a block of Travel Buddies Cable Car paper and then on the block of Gypsy Life

The background paper with the stenciled mixed media was cut down and then matted on white card stock. Hand stitching adds more texture. I popped up all the fussy cut elements on foam to add dimension and then after placing my photo stack I added the fussy cut elements to my background to build a whimsical setting for the photo. Lastly, the Sleepy Time dimensional sticker was added as well as a few hearts, wood veneer stars and two little paper clay moons.

I hope the Sleepy Time layout has inspired you to get the Travel Buddies collection and scrap your own memories!

The Page Map I used for inspiration:

Some close ups:
 I matted my patterned paper on plain Felicity Jane cardstock and fussy cut the flowers from one of the patterned papers.

 I used one of the 3x4 journaling cards to place my title.  I cut out the scallop on the plain card stock.

 I used some elements from older Felicity Jane kits.  The colours just go so well together.

 I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the chevrons and I just love how it brings the eye to the photo.

Some hand stitching to the circular elements and a mix of fussy cut flowers and puffy stickers complete this page.  I love how it turned out.

Back to School - CSI 294 - Elle's Studio (Noteworthy)

Hello my dear friends.  It is mid month reveal on Color Story Inspiration.  The colours and theme of this case file is perfect to scrap those "back to school" photos.  I am really loving a good grid design these days.  I used the lovely Noteworthy collection by Elle's Studio.  Here is my page:

The Page Map I used:

The case file:

This is how I solved the case file:

Scheme:  All 5 colours used.

Evidence:  Grid pattern, School-Themed elements, Camera, Metal, Brads, Layered Sticker, Dimensional letters, Use a pen to draw outlines.

Testimony:  I documented Stefan's first day of Grade 1.  I used the inspiration words:  "Back to..." as the title.

Some close ups:
 I really enjoyed making this large dimensional embellishment.  I used some Quickutz dies, cut the rosette with the Silhouette Cameo, the top layers where from a Crate paper embellishment I took apart and then I added a puffy heart to the top layer.

 I outlined all the patterned papers as well as the background patterned paper and used up some of my very old brads.

 The stack of books are a die cut by Shimelle.  I cut the scalloped border with free hand.

 The wood veneer numbers were coloured with a permanent marker and was part of the Teresa Collins Wonderful collection.

I love the dimension of the large rosette embellishment and also added some foam dots behind the scallops on the border.

Love and Happiness - Felicity Jane (Jeana kit)

Hello there friends.  I am really trying to stash bust and have decided to take it by collection.  I pulled out the Felicity Jane Jeana kit and within a week I made 5 pages.  I am sharing the first of the pages today.  The photo is one that I took of Kobus when we visited my sister and her family at their holiday home in Port Owen.  The sunsets are absolutely fabulous and I love how this cut file by Paige Evans compliments the photo.

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Felicity Jane (Jeana collection); Cardstock:  American Craft:  Embellishments:  Felicity Jane; Embroidery Floss:  DMC; Other:  Silhouette Cameo.

 I love this cut file...and I stitched a circle on the inside of the rays.

 Felicity Jane is famous for the gorgeous florals in the collections.  I fussy cut the flowers from the pattened paper.

 I also love that the B side of each patterned paper has a black and white print.

I added my journaling over the fish tail banner.

Thank you for visiting my blog today♥  Have a lovely weekend.

Darling, just believe in yourself - Pinkfresh Studio (Indigo Hills 2)

Hello there my crafty friends.  I am sharing another page made with the stunning Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 collection.  I am working through my collections at the moment and try to use it up.  So far I have made 6 pages with this collection and I am waiting for a few more pattern papers to use up the rest of the embellishments.

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Pinkfresh Studio (Indigo Hills 2); Cardstock:  American Craft; Chipboard:  Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2; Flowers:  49&Market; Enamel dots:  Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2;  Die cuts and puffy stickers:  Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills2; Embroidery Floss:  DMC; Mixed media:  Little Birdie Mixed media paste; Stencil:  Scrapbook Studio; Other:  Doily from my stash.
Some close ups:
This pretty paper really decides your design for you.  I love the way the stenciled mixed media paste pops on the dark blue.

 I used some of the frames in the collection as layers under my photo.  I love the added texture that distressing the edges of the background combined with the stitching brings to the page.

 I adore the combination of blues and purples in the collection.  

The stunning puffy stickers are a perfect combination with the soft 49&Market flowers.
