A couple of my recent projects....

As well as putting the final touches to the April Kits I managed to create the following two layouts using new products to our store. The first layout features the new Glitz Collection 'Pretty in Pink'. This project will be in our 'Shop by Project' section soon so you can see what I used to create the layout :)

The other layout I created used the new Echo Park 'Woof' Collection (mixed with some Best Creations 'Puppy Love') - perfect for my bouncing puppy!
I found this layout harder to create as I usually love detailing layouts with lots of flowers, bling and generally making them dimensional but it is good to try different ways of scrapping than your usual style - the layout ended up fun and funky which seems to work for the photo :)

Lastly, I created this layout below a while ago using the My Minds Eye 'Follow Your Heart "Be Happy"' Collection:

All of the papers and embellishments used were from the same set by My Minds Eye and the flowers were stamped and cut out using the Heartfelt Creations 'Innocents Flowers 2' cling rubber stamps.

April Mini Kit.... Sneak Peek

I thought I would share our April Mini Kit with you today as a sneak peek before it goes online next month :)

I created both of the layouts and the card from this kit so whilst its a 'mini kit' enough is included to create two layouts with left overs!

A Couple of Recent Projects...

I have been working on a few projects which I thought I would share today. The first is a layout using the brand new Prima Marketing collection 'Nature Garden'. Unlike my usual layouts not many different papers were used to create this layout. The flowers used were also Prima Marketing as well as the Roman Column, alphabet and the black lace border. A Daisy D's Rub on was used, a Bo Bunny clear stamp on the top right hand corner and the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Die - Bird Branch.

Have you seen our new section on the website 'Shop by Project'? If not then we will be adding new projects to this section and all of the products used to create the project will all be together to make shopping a little easier :) Just click on the layout/card in the above section to see the products used.

 Sometimes it is difficult to choose flowers/cardstock etc online which match so seeing it used on a project might give a little inspiration. It is also very frustrating seeing a product which has been used on a product and not being able to find out what it is!

 The project below will be added shortly.

My first shop by project layout was this one:

If you click here you can see everything I used to create this layout :)

Lastly, I created another card using the new Kaiser Craft Sweet Nothings 6.5" x 6.5" Paper pad, a Magnolia stamp, Prima flowers and a Dusty Attic chipboard frame:

New Bo Bunny - Serenity Collection

I have just created a card using the Brand New Bo Bunny Collection 'Serenity'. I fell in love with the colours in this collection and the first thing that came to mind was of an oriental Magnolia stamp! I am definately more of a 'scrapbooker' but this card seemed to come together so easily and I am so pleased with the finished result...
