For this layout I used the American Crafts Speciality Burlap piece, I cut a heart shape out of the middle and placed a piece of the Prima Rossibelle paper behind it.

My fluttering element is the Butterfly silhouettes from the Embellishment add on Kit, I coloured them with black ink and added liquid pearls to the centre.

I used the black Petaloo flowers from the Flower add on kit to embellish and paired these with some brown flowers from my stash.


There was lots of gorgeous gems in this kit, I've used the Prima trim which I cut into pieces, the Prima Druzy Stones and the DIY gold enamel drops.
I coloured the Dusty Attic Hanging Bulb chipboard pieces in brown distress ink.

Happy - Lemoncraft Just Love Me Collection for Bella Paperie

Hi, here is a second layout which I made last weekend
This one is made using the Lemoncraft Collection Just Love Me, which is also now in store at Bella Paperie

I made this layout also for the Swirlydoos SGC challenge Happiness


Part of the challenge was to add 3 photos, I really struggle with multiple photos so it was hard for me to add three. I decided to used the Dusty Attic ATC Frames #1 to frame my pics. I coloured the chipboard with embossing powder in light pink and teal.


I fussy cut out lots of the flower images from the papers to go under the top of my frames, then I added lots of flowers, ribbon and twine to go on the bottom half.


Papers Used:
Lemoncraft Just Love Me Collection
 2 pieces #3
#4

This layout along with most of the materials I used to make it are now in the Bella Paperie Store.

Angel - 49th and Market for Bella Paperie

Hi everyone. Sorry it's been a long time between my posts lately. I'm pregnant with a little boy who's due in December and unfortunately my health hasn't been the best so I've been doing more resting and less scrapbooking. But last weekend I sat down for a full day of crafting and here is the layout I made.
The new collection - Heirloom Botanicals from 49th and Market are now at Bella Paperie. This is a truely amazing and beautiful collection, I loved creating with it. 
I made this layout as part of the Swirlydoos October Round Robin Challenge


To make this layout I used the Kaisercraft Damask quarters stencil with some purple texture paste to the background. I made the paste with a purple mica powder mixed with modelling paste.


I fussy cut out lots of images from papers to layer under my photo. I framed my photo with a Dusty Attic String Frame which I coloured with embossing powder.


To embellish I added flowers, lace, seam binding and pearl string.
Most of the flowers are from the 49th and Market collection - they pair with the papers perfectly :)


Papers used;
49th and Market Heirloom Botanicals
Heirloom Cutouts
Faded Bloom 
Passage

My layout along with most of the materials I used to make it are now in the Bella Paperie store 

I am also entering this layout into the More Than Words October Challenge
Change is for how much my daughter is changing and growing up these days, she's almost 10!!!! and I can't believe how old she is looking now, not my baby anymore.
Ombre is for my mix of pink and purples - I love how the blend together, I also coloured the chippie pieces to two shades of purple

Swirlydoos September Kit Reveal

Hi everyone :) 
Today is my day to reveal the layouts I made with the latest Swirlydoos Kit, It's the September kit Creamsicle. This kit is full on the Bo Bunny Bella Rosa collection and loads of coordinating embellishments.

So here is what I made......

Enjoy


I'm starting with my fav layout this month...I just love these colours

I have used the Bo Bunny Bella Rosa paper in Whisper for my background. Then I took the Anna Griffin Die cut paper, this is red on one side and white on the other. I used the white side and coloured it with ink to be sightly darker that my background paper. Next I took apart the Darice crystal stickers from the main kit and decorated the Die cut paper with them.


I took one piece of the Creative Embellishment chipboard film strip and primed it with white gesso before I coloured it with a lime coloured Gelato.


I layered on lots of flowers, mainly blue and lime ones from my stash but I also used the Prima Vintage Emporium mini flowers from the flower add on kit.
I finished by adding a Heidi Swap Acetate word from the embellishment add on kit and then a few of the mini teal beads from the main kit.
I added some vellum butterflies and this is my example for the All the Flutter Challenge :)

Materials Used
Swirlydoos September Main Kit
Swirlydoos September Embellishment add on Kit

My Stash: Flowers, butterflies, Distress ink in Tumbled Glass, Gelato in Kiwi.

Here is my layout for this months sketch challenge.....love this sketch <3
Enter the challenge HERE


I went very minimal on this layout, with no mixed media background. I left the paper completely untouched. This was mainly because I was sick when I made it, but I do love this clean look.


The background paper is Bella Rosa Amore, I used the Darice wooden frame from the embellishment add on kit to frame my photo. I coloured this frame with liquid pearls in Bisque. I have also used the Creative Embellishments chipboard film strip which I coloured with peach and yellow sprays.
I embellished with the gorgeous new Prima Flowers from the flower add on kit, plus the Prima Memory hardware pearls and Darice Sequins. I used a title from the Heidi Swap acetate words pack.


Materials Used
Swirlydoos September Main Kit
Swirlydoos September Embellishment add on Kit
Swirlydoos September Flower add on Kit
My Stash: Doily, Wire twine, Liquid Pearls Bisque, Yellow and Peach sprays

Cute



I love the deep red colours in this Bo Bunny Bella Rosa collection so I made another red layout.
The background paper is Elegant, then I cut the edges off the Simplicity paper and placed this on top of the Elegant paper. I curled the edges on two side of the Simplicity paper.



I took the shutter pieces in the Bo Bunny Bella Rosa chipboard pack from the embellishment add on kit to frame my photo. I used the Creative Embellishments floral chipboard piece from the embellishment add on, I coloured this with brown distress ink and cut it into 4 pieces to tuck in amongst  my flowers


I used the Petaloo and Prima Vintage Emporium flowers from the flower add on kit, plus I added a few of my own. I finished off the layout by added some of the Prima Memory Hardware pearls....I LOVE these pearls :)


Materials Used
Swirlydoos September Main Kit
Swirlydoos September Embellishment add on Kit
Swirlydoos September Flower add on Kit
My Stash: Lace, Cheesecloth, flowers, metal embellishments. Stencil and stamping

Simply



Here is my last layout for the kit. I used the Bella Rosa paper Rustic as my background, again this layout has no paste or sprays to alter the paper..I left it plain.
To frame my photo I used white card stock and covered the edges with the Darice Sparkle tape from the embellishment add on kit. Next I layered all the doilies from the kit into a circle alternating the teal and white sides.


I took the Creative Embellishments floral chipboard piece from the embellishment add on and primed it with white gesso before I coloured it with the Nuvo Crystal drops from the kit. I used the Prima flowers from the main kit and the flower embellishment add on, I also added in a couple of teal flowers from my stash.
 I finished this layout with a Heidi Swap Acetate word and some Prima pearls
