Haven't done this for a while!

Hi everyone,
I was looking for a challenge to create the other night and I went over to The Color Room and took a look at their latest colour pallette.

I have followed the colour palette however I used brighter versions ;/ ( LOL)

And yes! You see right....I have used a flower!!!! LOL!!!
It was a fun layout to create! To incorporate grey I used grey lead pencil and grey alphas. 
I tried t draw with a tooth pick but it didnt work so I used the end of a toothpick to do some small dots amongst my paint splatters!!
So I did use them I promise!! LOL

Latest from A Piece of Cake designs

Hi everyone!
I have a layout to share with you today using the latest cupcake kit from a Piece of cake designs..

I know I always say it but once again I love this kit and I always like to think outside the box a little bit to showcase it's versatility!!

This layout is of my boy, a photo I have scrapped a few times before but I love it!!

I have used the chalkboard paint with a spatula on some white cardstock and then used the white Sharpie over it to add some white details. 

I have cut small pieces of the various papers into squares and scattered them over the centre of my layout. They were just small pops of colour. To match these colours I used some mists from my stash to draw circles around my photo to add more pops of colour!

I have added in some stamping and used the black and white washi tape with my sewing as a feature on my background also.
The title is around my photo "Today be the best version of yourself", and I used the alphas in the kit with the white sharpie pen to highlight.

I have to admit I added the text paper to the top and bottom of my layout to hide a spilt blob of purple mist!! See , it's not the mistakes you makes it's how you cover them up!! LOL!
Have fun with your kit!

7 dots love...

Hi everyone,
I have just realised that my 7 dots creations havent showed up here on my blog as I thought I had scheduled! Oh well, I will happily share with you now!

This one is the most recent one on the blog. It is a photo of my wedding day.
It is a little different to my usual style a it has much darker, muted tones but still lots of 7 Dots goodies, and layering.

This stunning background paper is from the "Love is in the air" range called I must believe.

I have added many strips stickers from the "All I ever" and"Messy head" ranges plus clear stamps from the "Nature walk collection. 

This one is a masculine page of Will learning his guitar,

These gorgeous papers from the "Dreamer Collection" matched my photo perfectly with its golden colours.

Once again a mixture of various collection stickers including "Domestic Goddess", "illumination" and "Dreamer" collections.

I have also used masks such as this Dina Wakely one and a Studio Calico chevron mask.
The chipboard is of course 2 Crafty's circular panel.

This layout was part of the last challenge over on the blog.

Here is my layout based on the theme "5 senses".

This month there is another awesome challenge....
The theme is NEW BEGINNINGS!!!

I will share my next 7 dots layout with you soon :)

Two more A Piece of Cake design kit layouts....

 Hi again everyone!
I have a fun layout to share with you today  using last months cupcake kit from a "Piece of cake designs''and it features a fellow designer and one of my besties Nat!
We earlier this year along with Raquel and some other awesomely talented friends rented a holiday unit in Mount Gambier SA. SO much fun and these were just some crazy selfies on my phone! .

Once again the masks were the main feature of my layout! I have used the scalloped edges with some texture paste to create some interest on my background cardstock.
I have also then used the ampersand mask with my black pen as a feature on my layout.

I have also used many of the patterned papers as strips and circles on this layout along with the stickers , alphas and sequins.

I have cut the title from one of the papers  too!!! 


While I was playing with the papers in the kit I came up with , unintentionally, a christmassy 
combo of colours! So I thought why not show how versatile these kits are and show you a christmas themed layout!?
So here you have it....

My children for the first time ever, adopted an Elf on the shelf!
It was so adorable!!! 
But I was yet to scrap any of the photos! 
This kit allowed me to scrap this precious moment. The last day before our elf "Tinsel" as we named her , was to head back to the North pole til next Christmas. This meant the children who had been unable to touch her til now as the fear her magic would disappear, were able to give her a cuddle goodbye! So it was a sad day but also the best day at the same time!

I loved the mixed bag of embellishments by MME and this title was perfect!!

I have used a mix of papers that contained reds, green and even some yellow.
I used my sewing machine and some masks to create an interesting background on masking tape.
My background paper is by 7 Dots studio.

Now I have to add I have used a special veneer that was released last year!
It was a special Elf on the shelf set and I had been holding onto it do these kind of layouts!

Hi everyone!
I am back to share a layout I have created using the latest cupcake kit which is sold out!!
This kit has pretty colours and lot's of embellishments to create a variety of layouts.It also has a great mist and some mini stencils!! What more could you need?!
So I have created quite a few layouts now featuring selfies by my daughter Maya, but I just love them when I find them on my phone! They make me smile and I find them to be so fun to scrap!!!
So here is another one! Crazy girl! 
They really depict her personality! She is fun loving, crazy and just funny!
I have used a Kaiser stamp to add to my title that says 
"Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle".
This stamp is perfect for Maya and goes perfectly with the gorgeous gold title in the kit!

I have used some white cardstock as my background where I have drawn some circles . 
I have used the "Lindy's stamp gang mist" from the kit and some gelatos to paint the circles.
I have also used the scallop borders stencil in the kit and a black pen to draw in some doodling on my background.

As I have used the gold glittery title I wanted to add some more gold to my layout so I have used a Heidi Swapp Colour shine to draw around some of the circles and add some splashes of glimmer.

I also LOVED this "cherry flair" in the kit and it worked perfectly here. 

Thanks for popping by, Eb xx
