First 7 Dots post!

Hi everyone!
Sorry it has been a while between posts! Life is crazy busy at the moment!
My first ever post has gone up over on the 7 Dots Studio blog!
This is the layout I created using lot's of 7 Dots yumminess!

The papers in the Domestic goddess range were perfect for this layout!I used papers from the "Domestic Goddess" range and the "Messy Head" range as my background.The background paper is so beautiful too , it's called "Women's talk". You can find all these products linked in my post here.
I have added colour with water colour paints and Faber Castell Gelatos

These beautiful chipboard pieces are form the Illumination Range and I have covered with Gesso and then used Gelatos again to colour them.
I have also used clear stamps from the "cold country and nature walk" ranges mixed with some Heidi Swapp and and some Ali Edwards stamps.

My July 2 Crafty post...

                                                Hi everyone, today I have a fun, bright ,
                                          boyish layout to share with you from my
                                                  July post on the 2 Crafty blog.

                                           This layout is all about my son rocking his 

                                   first pair of glasses! What a spunk don't you think?

I have created a mixed media background using watercolour paints, 
texture paste, sewing and stamps
As everyone probably already knows my favourite 
chipboard piece is the circular panel!
I LOVE using it and here it is a
main feature of my layout. 
This time I have left the chipboard in it's
raw form.

Another favourite piece of mine are these "film strips",
however this time I have used the outter edge
of them to create interest on my background. 
I have simply rubbed them with a black
 archival ink pad.

You also can see the chipboard stars which 

are a must on a boys layout I think!!!!
These ones are from the ATC pack, 
and I have coloured with 
Faber Castell gelatos.

June Cupcake kit

Hi again everyone,
I am back to share another layout using the June Cupcake kit from
A Pice of cake designs.

This layout is a photo of my daughter who LOVES
to read!! She is also a great, animated story teller and I really
wanted to document this aspect of her life. 
Often when we go shopping and if she has some pocket money , more 
often than not she goes straight for the book sections
in the stores.

I have like the last layout,
used a tag from the kit to highlight and frame my 
Instagram photo.
I have used lots of different strips of the papers,
as well as the sticker sheet in the kit.
I have added some of my own washi tapes and a past kit flair.

I LOVE this mask so I used a yellow Faber Castell
gelato to add these words to my page. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying your kit

I"m so unbelievably grateful...

I can honestly say That when I was asked to be apart of this I was gobsmacked! I think my reply was
                                                           "Me??? You want me???"

I have participated in the previous two of these online classes and they were the best classes I have ever done. The artists were out of this world talented! My favourite artists. Now to be one of them is just so overwhelming and hard to believe! I am also petrified!!!
I have only made one video ( which I havne't even shared lol) so am learning all the technical stuff that comes with this gig!
Well wish me luck and I hope to see many of your creations as you join in with us!!!
You can sign up and read all about these amazing ladies here!

Hi everyone!!

I am back to share a layout created using the latest cupcake kit
from A piece of Cake Designs.

I know I say it all the time but this kit is my favourite!!!!
I LOVE all the papers in it, the mask is my all time favourite and
the Lindy's Stamp gang mist is totally AWESOME!!
This is my first layout to share! 

As always stitching and a mixed media type background onto
white cardstock. 
I used the Dina Wakely mask with grey 
Faber Castell gelatos as a feature on my background.

I then used the "NOTED" tag as the main feature
to highlight and frame my photo.
I have cut strips from the papers as well as small words
and used stickers from the sticker sheet to embellish 
my layout. 
And I LOVE the cherry fair!!!!!

I will be back again next week with another creation
to share! Thanks , Eb xx

Another layout using the last cupcake kit....

Hi again everyone,
I have another layout to share using this month's cupcake kit

This time I have used different sized strips of the various papers to create my background. I then used Faber Castell gelatos over them to highlight and give an arty feel.

 I have also sewed over parts of my page and used a text stamp over the top of my papers.

I have used more of the papers as circles and other shapes. All the stickers are from the Echo Park sticker sheet including the title.

Thanks for popping by, Eb xx
Hi again everyone!
Here is another bright layout using this month's cupcake kit from " A Piece of Cake design kits".

This layout was totally inspired by this awesome piece of paper in the kit! I knew straight away that I wanted to cut out the chevrons and use as the main focus of my layout!!!

I used mists in the same colours and as always added some stamping and sewing to create interest.

 Once I had sewn the black circle with my sewing machine I added a circle from the yellow wire to frame my photos. I also once again loved using the sticker words on the Echo park sticker sheet and just added some of my own rub ons and alphas to create a different look from my previous layouts.

Until next time ,happy creating! Eb xx
