scrapbooking summer

Hi, I feel like its been ages since I blogged, life can get so busy for us all, today I'm sharing a 12 x 12 Layout using Kaisercraft Coastal Escape, the Summer hols seem so long ago now; so feels great to share the memories.

Coastal Escape

Starting wth a plain Bazzil cardstock, I've added some 6 x 6 Coastal Escape papers and some stencilling, paint splatters and bling highlight details; to break up the space.

Stencilling, paint and bling details

Finally I added some of the lovely Prima French Riviera flowers.

Turquoise Delight

Sea Breeze 12 x 12 LO

Sharing a  layout today , I have to say I just love the colours of the Sea Breeze Kaisercraft Collection- so on trend and perfect for lots of different types of Layouts and projects.

On the cardstock, I used Bo Bunny texture glitter paste, with a stencil- it gives great texture and detail interest to the plain cardstock.
I also used Finnabair's micro beads all over the place... :-) I love these little beads, again great way to add interest, bling and make your layout unique.

I've then mixed flat flower die cuts, with paper flowers and metal flowers and bits and bobs, I also added a felt butterfly.

Finally I flicked some of my new fav paint- H2O watercolour twinkles- these paints are just rich in colour and sparkle.



I really loved creating this layout- lots of fun was had.
Thanks for looking today, until next time

Today, i'm sharing with you a watercolour birthday card.

birthday wishes

I've created the background with water and powder water colours paints, I've then stamped with Staz On and coloured with water colour pencils.
I've also done some background stamping to also add a little more depth.

I'm entering this card over at Twofers challenge- where the theme is Birthdays.

Butterflies

Unity Butterfly  Girl 

I've been having lots of inky fun, with my new watercolour powder paints, you can create quick easy funky backgrounds with these in an instance.

I've created the background and the stamped the girl separately and coloured her using twinkling H2O watercolour paints.
I'm entering Butterfly girl over at Fashionable Stamping where the theme is butterflies, lots of inspiration from the DT and entries :-)




Tag Book

Today I'm sharing with you a tag book I've created for an English colleague returning to the UK.

I added lots of travel and kiwi details.  Inside I've decorated the tags by sponging with Distress Inks, stencils and sparkly watercolour paints.




I left enough room for people to leave their farewell wishes, and I included a few photos of his time with us; everyone loved it.
