Cards: APOCD kit

Hello Friends!
The silly season is almost upon us, and I cant wait. I love this time of the year, all the excitement of the 'man in red', end of school year celebrations and lots of family time. Very special time.
We have still a few birthdays in the house before the 'big day' and thank you's for teachers to hand out, so I have been spending a little time preparing more cards, so that I am ready to enjoy to the festive season.

I have used the October main kit for these little cute cards.


Hope this inspires you today to make those cards, because nothing beats a handmade card, right?

Workspace Wednesday: Kits

Hello friends!
I thought I would share with you a really quick tip with you, for how I sort my a piece of cake designs kit .
I am using the Main kit to show you.

I always place all my papers to one side in a neat pile
I then sort all my embellishments out on a white cardstock so that I can see them. I always open the packets and tip them out because I am  a person, where if its not open I don't use it. 
its then easy for me to just start creating because its all at my finger tips.
Not only that, as I am sorting through my kit I always have my notebook and pen which allows me write down any thoughts that come to mind while I am unpacking.

This process is fun and works for me!

How do you unpack your kit?

Mini Album: Memories

Hello friends!
Just sharing today a little mini album from the APOD Cupcake kit.
Once I have created a few projects I end up with bits and bobs and lots of scraps. Often I would whip up cards or tags to use up the pieces, but the last few months, I have found a love to create little mini albums.

I generally work my size of the mini album by first using the biggest scrap and working through the pages that way. To get pages to that size, it may simply mean machine stitching some page together, as you will see soon.

Lets have a little look inside my album.

As you can I use the teeny little scraps as embellishments, by simply adding a border punch or cutting up a little shape.

You can see this page below I joined different papers together to get my page the same size and add some washi tape too!

Hope this inspires you use your scraps in a different way.

Scrappin: Love

Hello friends!
I am here today to share with you a page I created with APOCD cupcake kit along lots of sprays, wax crayons and water colour pencils.
 I love the stamp that came in the kit and started my page with that inspiration. I had no direction at all, other than stamping the image and then I wanted to use my wax crayons to colour a few circles in. I then wanted to created a shadow all the straight line to blend it in a little more.

I then sprayed some Heidi swap colour shine and splatters.
When I added the circles to the background, I used water colour pencil to soften the edges of the circles and to blend with my background.

Somehow I ended with a page that is bright and colourful.

NOT INCLUDED: flowers, gold bow,  butterflies

I hope you have a little experiment with some mediums.

Cards: Lets dance

Hello friends!
I have been having lots of fun with my first Design team kit from A piece of cake designs.  I got this really bright colour cupcake kit this month.

The colours are nice and bright. I will admit, I was a bit 'stand-offish' at first because I don't tend to use brights a lot. I admire all those creativity people that can pull of brights so easy.
This time I decided to start with to cards.
It was a perfect way for me to jump start the creativity and get a feel for the kit I guess. To see the endless possibilities.

With this card I started with the pinks.

NOT INCLUDED: Gold bow, flowers and frame.

I really wanted to get to a feel for the black in the kit.
I used it subtle in my layering.

NOT INCLUDED: Flower and bow.

I hope I have inspired today.
