Project Life 2016 Week 5 & a Process Video!

Happy Sunday! Today I want to share with you my first ever Project Life Process Video on YouTube!

This is my last project using the January Sweet Charlotte Daily Diary Kit from Noel Mignon. I made 5 project life weeks using it!
 Once again,I created another insert page. This time I cut down a 12x12 Design A Project Life page to 3.5x12. I also stitched it closed using the yellow pom pom trim as the edging.
 And here is what it looks like without the insert.
 I used my Zing Embossing Powder in Cricket to heat emboss the wood veneer.
 The blue glitter Thickers were from a past Noel Mignon kit
 And here are some close ups
 Oh how I love that yellow pom pom trim from the kit!
 I used my Stickles in Diamond on some of the cards, to give some texture.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you had a chance to watch the process video! Please give me a thumbs up in it if you like what you saw, and want to see more videos, and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel! In future, I hope to do voice overs, but this weekend, with everyone home, it just was not going to happen lol!

Little Boys

So this year, I am trying to use up some of my older stash of collections and embellishments that I have been hoarding.

For this layout I grabbed my Studio Calico Home Front and Countryside papers. 

The flair is from an older Studio Calico collection - Darling Dear. I also added a doily from my stash as an extra layer.
 I used my October Afternoon Catch Phrase roller stamp with some SC Doc Brown ink, and did the stamp/repeat technique. 

The black & white floral washi, "today" tag and thickers were from older SC kits that I had broke apart.  I used my Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Bronze and added splatters.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is my 4th and final layout that I created using the All About Me DCWV Paper Stack. You can read more about why I chose to use this, and my other 3 layouts HERE HERE & HERE 

I kept this layout pretty simple. I loved the glittery sun & clouds of this paper. 

I fussy cut the cupcake and the banner from another sheet of paper from this pad. I adhered them down with my hot glue gun.

I used my Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and added some larger drops to the background.

I sprinkled some sequins and enamel dots over the layout.
 I used several Maggie Holmes chipboard pieces  and an older October Afternoon tab to embellish with.

This layout came together really quick.

Thanks for stopping by and following my little journey using a paper pad that I thought was not my style, and was going to donate. I am so glad that I challenged myself to create with it, because in the end, I surprised myself and created some of my favourite layouts ever!

I hope I have inspired you to create something today!

Also, don't forget, I now have a YouTube channel, that will be showing you process videos, unboxing kits, haul videos and more! I'd love for you to subscribe, and you can find it HERE

Little Moments

Here is layout 3 that I created using this DCWV Paper Stack. You can read more about why I chose to use this, and my other 2 layouts HERE & HERE

 I love the colours of the plaid paper. I put some gesso on the background page then I used some Mister Hueys Mist in Taxi and a large household paintbrush, then lightly brushed broad strokes over the gesso.
Next I layered some messy thread on the page for some texture, then I fussy cut the frames from another sheet in the DCWV Paper Stack. I added some photos and tissue paper behind them, and then adhered it all down with my hot glue gun.

I used my sewing machine and stitched a strip of paper down the left hand side. For the embellishments I used some older October Afternoon and Maggie Holmes. Last, I scattered sequins across the page and adhered them with Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have inspired you to create something today!
