Mini Album: Selfie

There is something about Mini Albums that make me happy.
 I love putting them together, embellishing each page and looking at the photo.
Not to mention how much my boys love looking at them too.

This little mini album I created with the Studio Calico February kit and a bunch of  'selfie' photos that Brae & I took.
There pretty hilarious photos really!!

Now to play with March Studio Calico kit.

Scrapping: 'U'


In the Studio Calico February Kit there were these absolutely amazing big black letters. One of my most favourite things from the kit.
I really wanted to use a letter on a scrapbook page. So I did!
I machine stitched on the letter just to make it 'pop' and add a little texture as well.

A very simply page, but lots of fun nonetheless.

Some detail shots.

I added in some of those super cute Feathers from Pretty Little Studio.

Mixed Media: Canvas

You know how sometimes you just wanted to get messy hands, experiment and break all rules possible with products.

Yes, that was me with this canvas I created for a dear sweet friend of mine.

I used fabric paint, porcelain paint, alcohol markers and mexpy pens. I layer a lot of colours here and kept layering until I was happy with the end result.

I apologise, but I didn't get any step by step photos.

Some detail shots of all the layers and texture.

Scrapping: Cuddles

Happy Monday!

I am loving all things bight and colourful and that includes the Colouingz from shimmerz.

Colouingz: Peachy keen/ Heidi Ho Blue/ Oh say can U see
Inklingz: Coral reef

I simply started off with spritzing my background with water and then layering my colouringz and allowing them to drip.
I used the inklingz as my 'ink' to stamp the heart shapes in the background.

Some detail shots.
You can see how I brushed the inklingz around the triangles to make me shimmer and add a little more depth.

Mini Albums: February Memory planner


Here today to share with you a little step by step on what I did with the APOD Cupcake from February. As you would know its filled with lots of Heidi Swapp Memory planner goodies.
I thought it was very appropriate for me to start on my teal memory planner that also turned up around the same time as my kit.
Perfect timing perhaps.

Inside the front cover I put a few bits and bobs like those alphas from the kit, which are ready for me to add to my pages. This planner is one that I am using as a 'visual' diary. So it will be quick entries and lots of journaling. I guess its a bit like showcasing the highlights from the day. So this planner actually sits beside my bed. So I want a few bits and bobs there ready to add a little embellishing when I document in my planner.

 I used a fair few punches with the papers. They make really good accents throughout. 

 I created this little pocked from two sheets of paper from the kit. It allow me to pop in memoribale from the month or little tags I have created ready to pop in my planner.
To make the pocket all I simply did was fold and score one piece of paper in half. Then I scored and folded a second piece of paper  and cut a diagonal. Adhere the sides with glue and wa-la!`
 The sheet of stickers in the kit, I backed on white cardstock which allowed me to then 3D them, to take away the flatteness.
 I did a little machine stitching before sticking in the papers to add a bit more interest.
 I also cut little squares and embellished agagin with the stickers of punches.
 I added the photos which I prepared in the App 'Collection'. It has the date and allows me to type a little journaling on the photo. Makes the photo look tidy and neat in my planner.

Lastly at the end of the month I added this little envelope from Heidi swap memory planner collection. I can pop more little memorable or some hidden journaling.
