Last one for the month.

Well January has almost gone and I didn't get to make 30 layouts for this month but I am really happy that I achieved 18!!!  This for me is a huge amount as life can get so busy.  So considering this I thought I would share a layout I completed back in October just for fun.
I used this sketch...

Resulting in this layout which for me is a little different to my normal style.
Sketches are a fun way to kick start a new page & new ideas so when you come across one you like give it a go and see what happens.

So until next month Have fun Scrapping & enjoying those you love!

30 Days = 30 Layouts…?

Welcome to the last week of January…
(A long post with lots of layouts - so get comfy and enjoy)
In Australia this means Back to school.  The school holidays have been a blast, Sun, Sand & Surf…plus much needed rain.  Plenty of family time was spent on the family dairy farm & also at the beach!  It has been a wonderful 8weeks. 

This month I decided to take up the challenge and create 30 layouts for January…Just for the fact that I feel like I am not getting many layouts done & starting to get overwhelmed by all these photos that have been taken.  So my plan is to try & accomplish a set amount of layouts per month this year if I can.  If I don't achieve the target then what I have done is a bonus thankfully, otherwise they wouldn't be completed and the photos would still be looking at me.

For me as you know its all about the bling bling… This is where I am up to at the moment. 

If you have never been to D-Lish Scraps go and take a look at what is on offer in this online store… So many goodies for such a small price!  

These pink bows on this page are just one of the items in the store along with this massive 8" doily.
 Lots of texture paste & bubble wrap stamping was use on this layout...
 Love Heidi Swapp and her Color shine plus her resist papers = colour magic.  
These doilies were also from D-lish which I coloured with the colour shine.
 Chipboard works wonders as a border around photos.
Easiest background ever - kaisercraft paint & marbles in a pizza box … plus of course glitter.

 My sisters wedding - these layouts were so much fun to make.
Spellbinders dies used to border the photo.  Plus another big doily from D-Lish & I sprayed it Black.
The same Spellbinders die as above was used on this page too and silver doilies from D-Lish.
 So simple & easy using glitter ribbon as a background.

This Challenge sketch I just had to have a crack at...
Ending up with this layout from the sketch.

 Another challenge was 3 colours on the colour wheel I chose the Triade colour & came up with this… Lime, Blood Orange & Purple Blue.

Playing around with a kit from Scrappy Chat Designs where you buy the kits which have instructions & also a video tutorial…Creating 3 or more pages etc.  I added purple & the glitter background to personalise for my scrapping.
 Another one from the same kit that came with the layout above which I changed to suit me once again.

I was having a play around with these next three layouts.
Doilies, chipboard butterflies, string & a few well placed flowers helps create this layout.

These two have lots of gesso, texture paste, bubble wrap stamping with ink... 

Don't hold back the glitter on my layouts… 
In total for the month I have completed 18 layouts & it's already the 28th of January so not sure how many more I will actually get done but would love to have a play around tomorrow.  We made many wonderful memories over these holidays & try to create memories everyday.  So take the time to spend with your family as you don't know what tomorrow holds.

Until next time…Happy Scrapping.

Happy New Year - 2015!!!!!!!

Wowee Happy New Year!!!!!  2015 is here along with new opportunities & a fresh start.  
I did not make a new years resolution I just wish to spend more time with my family & scrap those photos that seem to get printed but nothing more… So I will be busy getting my scrap on.

To start off this new year our D-Lish Inspiration Challenge Board for January is ready to go!!
This is such a fun bright colourful challenge so come & join us & you could win a $30 D-Lish Store voucher to spend on some yummy product.  Who doesn't like to win?
Under the pump as I have had sick children in the lead up to getting this layout done I didn't think I could work so well under pressure…but oh yes I can!!!
Photo was taken on my iPhone so not the best quality as camera's have died & new camera only has a long lens for skating photos so need a shorter lens. 

Anyway I used all those gorgeous colours…
Making my background using one piece of white card stock & my dylusions sprays I built the colours from there.  Yes I did use glitter too you know I just can't let a layout go by without some sort of dazzle on it.

You & Me Together
You can find all these items that I used in the D-Lish store so go take a look at the lovely products with exceptional prices.

So welcome to 2015 where the possibilities are endless, photos are memories & life is to be lived with love.  Until next time find the glitter & have fun.
