Pretty in Pink.

Hi, such is life that all girls are born to wear and endure the colour Pink! Some love it and others hate it, my daughter Mackenna is a really feminine girly girl and loves the soft and pretty shades of pink. Today I'm sharing with you a very soft and Vintage 'Pink' layout.

Happiness is a burst of love sent from above.

For This layout I have used: Pion designs Papers - From my Heart II Collection, Fairytale of Spring and Images from the past.

I have teamed it with products from Green Tara - An Australian Company which has the most stunning range of Flowers, stems, leaves, lace, ribbons etc.

Come and visit the blogs of Pion Designs and Green Tara for some amazing inspiration.

Slightly Weathered!

Hi there, Yes I'm here for the usual late night post as it's a little computer chill time B4 I call it a night.

This is a layout that I did for Twiddleybitz and the Brisbane Expo last week. I really love the Twiddleybitz rusting powder - it gives their chipboard such amazing colour and texture.

I was asked if this was actual wood planks? No it's new paper from MM Eye and I'm really happy though that I cut it and raised it to different levels and I got the desired effect.

I've also used the old favourite on chipboard - Tim Holtz Crackle Paint and a touch of Prima.

SO thanks it! Thanks for dropping in , G!

Details of this Scrapcake layout and close-ups can be seen on a previous post. Signing off One....... HAPPY Scrapper!

Same concept - different style!

Hello, today I'm sharing a layout I created for my daughter Mackenna. Occasionally I like to colour challenge myself and as I don't like the colour red (my daughter loves it!) I thought it's time to lose the fear of using it!

I must say with the stunning dusty and vintage shade of red that Pion Designs has in the 'From my Heart II' collection - I found it a delight to create with. So watch here and on the Pion Designs blog because I'll be using allot more of this stunning 'RED' paper in the future ~ Fear gone!

'She Radiates'Pion Designs papers featured ~ From my Heart II collection. Rose frame, Tags, Captured hearts, borders and Children-Images from the past. Beautiful embellishments and flowers are from Prima.This layout is the same Circle and border idea as the following blog post ~ although it's a different style and completely opposite colour combination. If you like a layout idea that you have done B4 - take a challenge and adapt it and see how different both layouts can look. Thanks for dropping by, G!

Revamped and amended!

Hello! today I played around with an old layout. This layout was originally created for a class I taught early last year so it was quite minimal.....'Not any more'! I looked at it last week and have had it on my mind since that it needed some extra attention. 'the chase''Featuring Twiddleybitz chipboard -mini alphabet & fern leaves, Prima and Pink Paislee goodness.When it comes to Scrapbooking a little OCD creeps in.............pity it doesn't extend to the area where I create because that looks like a bomb hit it! Cheers. G!
