More Than Words Challenge – March 2017 – BeYoutiful

I am back to share my interpretation of the More than Words Challenge for this month, which somehow reminded me of the beautiful L’Aquarelle papers and embellishments I had sitting on my desk.

The Challenge is to use the word Beautiful with a Butterfly (or Butterflies) and I knew just the photograph I would use – yes another one of my oldest daughter Naomi-Jon who has always been beautiful on both the inside and the outside.  

A few layers, some fussy cutting, glitter, mist and die-cutting complete my layout – which I just love.  I especially like how I could combine purples, teals and peach in such a harmonious way with the help of awesome papers and embellishments.

You only have couple of days to go if you are going to enter the More than Words Challenge for March – plenty of time if you set your mind to it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Kaisercraft Challenge – March 2017 – Beautiful

I decided to have a go at the Kaiser Sketch Challenge this month, especially as I had already started fussy cutting some flowers and butterflies from the new Kaisercraft Wildflower patterned papers. 

I have rotated the sketch 180 degrees and flipped it, so that it looks a bit like this.  My photographs of Naomi-Jon and the resist title I wanted to use were the dictating factors for my design.  

I love all of the colours in this awesome collection that has some lovely watercolour effect papers, lots of flowers and the most beautiful butterflies.

I have used Glossy Accents on the Beautiful diecut and the Princess word I have cut from the patterned paper, to mimic the resist title I have cut from one of the specialty papers from the range.

Naomi-Jon and Milton had been to the Mt Larcom Show on this particular day with their Grandma and Great-Uncle, and they definitely had a wonderful time.

You only have just over four days to go if you are going to enter the Kaisercraft Sketch Challenge for March – plenty of time if you set your mind to it…..

Watercolour Stars Layout

I have created this layout using a photograph of Noah and some of my favourite Cocoa Vanilla Studio products.  The stars in the background were created with a Kaisercraft Stencil, a black multi-liner and Watercolour pencils from Prima.

Rambling Rose Collection – Happiness

The new Rambling Rose collection designed by Sue Smyth for Ultimate Crafts is instore and online at Scrapbook Fantasies.  The collection includes awesome papers for fussy cutting, as well as cutting dies, embellishments and embossing folders.

I couldn’t resist creating with the beautiful papers and stamps from one of my favourite new collections for 2017.

I have hand cut all of the frames, leaves and roses, and it didn’t take as long as you may think.

The stamped quote I have used actually comes in a set with the most beautiful scalloped circle, which I just couldn’t fit into my design this time.

I have used a few of the photographs from our Wedding in 1995 that haven’t quite made it into our albums yet.  And boy we were young….

Scrap Our Stash – March 2017 – Dad & I

Happy Sunday my creative friends and welcome to my post about some awesome papers we have at Scrapbook Fantasies and the Scrap Our Stash challenge for March.

The Scrap Our Stash challenge is to choose a line on the tic-tac-toe board and create with it – I chose Charm, Ink and Mini Alphas as my line.

I have only used a sheet of cardstock with two sheets (below) of the Carta Bella Rustic Elegance paper we have instore, and a couple of sequins, pearls, lettering and a charm.

The journaling (above) is very raw and holds so much meaning to me, as does the photograph which is so precious to me and I have not shared it with anyone before today.

I have added some crystalina kindy glitz to some of the fussy-cut elements I have layered on my page.

So that is my take on the March challenge at Scrap Our Stash, and now it is your turn to create with this awesome tic-tac-toe board:
