one, two, three, four....

Hello Friends. I love creating interactive layouts. So when I was given the challenge to create a layout with 4 or more photos, I was a little excited.

 I used some tags from the ephemera in the April Kit to put little photos on. These 3 tags will tuck under the photo pocket I made on the page.

I used a big photo on the front of the photo pocket with a ton of layers.

This photo is of my daughter on her second birthday. I wanted to use the numbers as bit of detail in my journaling. The sentiments from Vicki Boutin (which came in the colour kit) seem to sum my daughter. I let them all white because there is already lots of colour and didn't want a colour expolision to get messy! Tee Hee

How cute are those buttons from Create paper. They add a real cute to this page.

Here is a process video for you to enjoy.

Interactive Project life spread

Hello Friends.

I have a Project Life page for you using the Hip Kit April Project life kit.
I love all the bright cards and the cut apart sentiment sheet.

Normally in my Project life pages, I find myself fussy cutting alot of the images and words out, but this time I want to try and make these more noticeable. Be more of focial point I guess. So I decided to use them as little pockets within the project life pockets.

There seemed to more journaling I want to add but yet I want to see the photo. So I embellished the photo and then embellished a card and tucked it behind the photo.
Its a really fun interactive page now.

I also loved the roller stamp that came in the kit too, so I used the sentiments on a project life I created. Finished off with some handstitching, made a cute project life filler card.

Here is a video of the process

Feathery pocket letter

I love sending pretty mail. It fills my heart with such goodness when I create something special for someone. Especially when I am battling life.  Sharing some love and writing a little note someone can remind me that are in this  battle together.

Us mothers can relate to the struggle in simply getting things done. We don't need to be super hero to be kind.

 This little pocket letter I exchanged with a wonderful lady who also has two boys and a girl. She can relate to the battle of motherhood and together we can encourage each other to solider on.

I popped lots of prettiness and layers in.

Happy mail can sure brighten someones day.

Mini Album with shimmerz

Products used: Inklingz - Blue Lagoon / miner miner / corney flower blue
                        coloringz - Pretty in pink / well blue me down
                        vibez - deep blue sea 

Hi friends!
 I want to share today something fun with you  and that is a super cute, a mini album I made using Shimmerz.  I used inklingz and coloringz to create this album. Its super fun and not to difficult.

I started off by cutting a piece of cardstock in half (6 inch x 12 inch). Then at 4 inch intervals, (on the long side), I creased and folded it like an accordion style. I then joined the two pieces of cardstock together to make the album longer.

I started off by doing my cover first because I had already chosen a bunch of photos of my daughter to use in it, I could do my cover first. Then I layed out the photos I wanted to use on one side of the album. I wanted to use a photo, roughly every on second fold. The opposite I want to embellish. 

 I treated each section of the album as a little card or project life card instead of looking at the big picture as an album.

I  put all my shimmerz products first ( i didn't use any gesso, just shimmerz straight on the page). Once the shimmerz dried I then layer my photo and embellishments.

Then when I added all my photos and filled in the sections of the album I went in and added some transparencies and 3 x 4 inch project life cards just to add some interest to the album.

I hope you like my Mini album and if you have any questions, let me know!

More Project lfe

G'Day there friends,
I have another Project Life page using the April Project life kit from Hip Kits.

I loved the Vicki Boutin crayons that came in the colour kit and the rub ons from the Project life kit. There a bit like resist rub on. When you put them on the paper, there clear but soon as you rub the crayon over the top, you see the most beautiful pattern.

Lots of nice bright colours in this kit. Look at the alphas and the sticker sentiments from the sticker book. Just beautiful.

Bright colourful Mini Album

 Hello, Felicity here today with a bright, colourful,fun Mini Album. Ive used the April kit to create this little keepsake.
 To create my page I used the cardstock kit and cut all the cardstock to 6 x 4 and used my corner punch on the ends.

My photos vary in size from 4 x 4 to about 3 x 5. I stuck the photo down first and then embellished.
 I used the Pink Fresh Acetate tags as layers in my album to break the pages up and add extra interest.

I also used a lot of the pink fresh embellishements from the embellishment kit.

 I couldnt help but add a little sequin pocket in there too.

 I have a video for you that helps you see this album a little better. I love making mini albums, there fun and cute and great way to use up a series of photos too.

A layout that takes many turns.

Hello lovely people! Felicity here with a layout inspired by May moodboard this month. Buttons, triangles, pastels, stripes and not forgetting marshmallows.  Tee Hee

Now, this layout too a lot of twists. What I 'thought' would work, didnt. So I changed the page completely around, tried that and nope... but in the end I love my layout. But more importantly is I loved the process this page took me through. Make sure you watch the video below.

I am have been a little to ambious but I want to try and mix all those fun patterns into my page. The circles, the triangles and the stripes. I loved the real mix this moodboard gave, but as I said what I planned to do, turned out waaaaay different. Us girls are allowed to change your mind, right?

When you look at a moodboard, its designed to 'kick start' your creative. Yes, I loved the pastels but that wasnt what drew me to create what I did. It was the patterns.  Always remember, there is no right or wrong way with a moodboard, we are all different and all look at different things to inspire us. We are individuals creating beauitful things.

When you look at moodboard, look at like a child would? See the marshmallows, see the rainbow... then sit and create. You'll be pleasant surprised where those thoughts take you.

I hope you like my page and be sure you watch my video, watch careful because its like a windy road!
