Lee here checking in to say Hi! Totally loved Ang's layout using the new Urban Acres Blvd that she got me inspired to get out my stash and create as well. This layout uses Words which is embossed cardstock, Paisley which is double sided and also has the Green polka dot paper that you can see on the tag and file tab and Urban Acres Blvd Alphabet. The Words paper I have cut out 5 words from left over paper and adhered to the layout using foam tape to hightlight some of the words. This layout features my gorgeous friend Jaimie who I got to catch up with at Kiwi Scraps.
Hi there...Ang here! Just thought I would share my latest layout using the beautiful Heidi Grace Urban Acres range. I love the colours in this one and as always the choice of embellishments are endless. The range is gong to be available at Spotlight from February.
Have a great weekend and stay tuned for the next challenge!
Hi to all, I haven't shared in a while. I decorated the Kaiser word JOY earlier this week. I used Heidi Grace Designs, Urban Acres Blvd range. They are a beautiful range of double sided papers. The picture looks more yellow but it's a pale green. Not the best photos as I took the pictures at night.
I painted the edges of the word in pearl green acrylic paint. It matches the paper perfectly. I embellished with ribbon and MM holly leaves.
This was a quick project to complete. Remember you don't always have to use Christmas themed papers to decorate an item for Christmas.
Hi all, its been a while what with school holidays and work etc. Well as you have probably seen in previous posts we had a visit from the lovely Ngaire for the Paper Possibilities retreat on the weekend. A good time was had by all with lots of creativity going on over the weekend. Plenty of classes to attend (I managed to fit 2 of Ngaires in - had a ball). Plenty of laughing, champagne and scrapping over the entire weekend made for a very pleasant time.
I forgot my camera (can you believe it?!) so thankyou Ngaire for posting some photos of all the girls with their Fikars bags, I still have to chase some photos up from Melissa and the ladies from the weekend.
I wanted to say a very BIG THANKYOU to Fiskars who were so kind and generously supplied our ladies with a bag full of goodies each. Everyone was thrilled, with many of the products already on layouts! I did take a few photos of my son Christopher who was in his element when I asked him if he would like to organise and pack the bags for me a couple of days prior to the event. A good few hours work as he had 60 to do and his little sister only managed to stay focused enough to do 10. He did a perfect job, shame he isn't as diligent with tidying up his bedroom!
I know two posts in two days!! LOL.. miracles really DO happen!!
I LOVED the Brittany's Castle Sparkle cardstock the moment I saw it.. It simply begged me to cut it up and create with it.:)))
this is the result....
and some close ups too:
and a texture shot too:
Ok.. so what did i use in this layout?? Brittany's Castle:
Enchanted forest blue and pink cardstock.
pixidust periwinkle card.
littleBIG word stickers.
cardstock alpha stickers
coloured rain dots.
and fabric tape.
HG studio flower additions.
and this and that epoxy stickers.
I also added a fair helping of diamond glaze...:))
These cool egrets were grouped in a tree just outside my room in Cairns.. there were over 200 of them!! I was just amazed to see them all sitting there as the sun went down. When I got home, THIS was the image i really wanted to scrap... and this was the result!!

Just wanted to pop in and share a couple of photos of Cairns over the weekend.. where I had the huge pleasure of teaching with fellow Fiskars gal and card artist, Annette Hannigan at the Paper Possiblities Scrapbooking Convention.
Here we are with the PP girls :
Annette, Me, Melissa and Nickie.
and some of the girls with their fiskars goodie bags:
ahhh that lovely subtle orange.:))
I also wanted to share a layout I created for a friend's Bubby.
and a cool thought for the day: “Make every thought, every fact, that comes into your mind pay you a profit. Make it work and produce for you. Think of things not as they are but as they might be. Don't merely dream - but create!”
