Pretty Little Studio

I am super excited to be amongst the squad guest designers Pretty Little Studio have lined up for the spring/summer.  I'm taking part in a freebie Instahop today - you can find the details here and the freebie here.

This month's freebie is by Claudia Van R and is beautifully pastel and dreamy.

I added some sequins and enamel dots, and a whole bunch of sewing.

The great thing about printables is you can pick and choose what you want.  I printed a load of the triangles in a few different sizes and was able to create something I wouldn't have been able to with a pack of ephemera.  The downside is my printer is rather naff!  I would love a better printer so suggestions for makes and models greatly appreciated!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jesse John

Ah, Cocoa Vanilla... my first love!

Most of the supplies used on this layout are from their newest collection with a fwe oldies thrown in for good measure!

Lots of mixed media and sewing too.  I've mainly used Shimmerz products in the background but it was a case of matching colours rather than matching brands.

The alphas were deep in my stash, I can't remember where from, but they are the perfect match.

Thanks for looking!

A couple of cards...

I've been playing around with this month's Stick It Down card sketch...

As I was trimming down the first card from A6 to square I realised I could also make a tiny card with the offcut...

Supplies are from Jillibean Soup and SpiegelMom Scraps.

The diddy card is made from one sticker and adapts the sketch to 5 sections.

I covered the focal point of the larger card with crackle accents.  It's the first time I have used it - certainly won't be the last!

Thanks for looking!

Love You. Love You too. Love You two.

This month's sketch at Stick It Down is an interesting one...

I had something completely different in mind when I was creating the sketch, but by the time I got round to creating the layout my idea had morphed.

I wanted to use these three Perspextives from Bramble Fox on one layout with three photos of my nephs.  I wanted the title to read Love you, love you too, love you two.

I used my watercolours to match the colours of the acrylics and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Hop over and link up with Stick It Down if you create with this sketch!

Panda's Lunch

I spent ALL of my magpie points at Hey Little Magpie last week.  I needed a treat, some just because goodies.  I bought a few sheets of Jillibean Soup papers and some large letters from their Shades Of Colour range.

The letters are such great colours.  I decided on a black background - partly because the letters really pop on black and partly because I've been told I need to work on black more by my cousinlets!  They are right, it gives good results.

 I framed my title with lots of messy sewing.

I added a few splatters and sequins (Shimmerz sprays and sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.)

Thanks for looking!

Shaker Wreath

Carrying on from last week's shaker pocket, this week is a shaker wreath for SpiegelMom Scraps.

I had a relaxing time painting the wreath (which you can see in the process video) and loved the result.  It was hard to take a knife to it to cut the centre out! 

I picked a muddy photo to scrap so I avoided painting the traditional floral wreath and stuck to greenery and leaves.

I used some of my fave paper from Pink Fresh - it's the perfect shade of mustard.

 I added a sprinkling of bugs!

The ants are brads but because of the shaker pocket I cut the legs off and glued them on.

I added a few journalling strips and called it done.

You can find the sequins here!
