Hi There,

Today I am sharing a layout I created using loads of Scrap FX goodies
and the 7 Dots Studio - Paint Chips Collection.

This is a layout of my youngest, Lucas.  I used loads of Scrap FX products on this page.
I started with the Geometry Stencil on this 7 Dots Studio – Paint Chip Collection background.

I used it to stencil using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Black Soot.
I then turned the stencil over and used it directly beside this image as a stamp, behind the photo.

I then used the Honeycomb Stamp to give the background some ink.  This stamp will be a favourite of mine for sure.  It’s so versatile.

I then mixed some Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide – Twisted Citron and Whipped Sparkle to use with the Crosswordsstencil to bring out some of the color in the background.
You can also see the Fractured Time Chipboard which was painted with White Gesso.

To finish the layout off, I added the title “Authenticity” and some of the BBQ Mesh Chipboard, which is also featured behind the photo matting as well.
Oh, and I cannot forget the Light Bulb Transparency.  You get 9 of these in a sheet and they have different designs within each light bulb.  How cool is that!!

I am also entering this layout into the 7 Dots Studio December Challenge.  It's all about using 3 colours.

Thanks so much for stopping by. xx

Happy New Year - Time to Get Planning

Hi There,

Happy New Year!!!

I always like to start the year with good intentions and get my planner ready for the busy year ahead.

So with that in mind, I set off to use the newly released Havana Nights Collection from Kaisercraft.

I always change out the front of my planner, setting a color scheme for the month.

And this month I focused on using the Monthly Planner Pages.
I used stamps, wooden flourishes, collectables and washi tape from the Havana Nights Collection.

Here are some close-ups:

I used a Kaisercraft Die Cut Alphabet to cut out the Happy New Year title using the 
Havana Nights 6 x 6 Paper Pad.

Thanks so much for stopping by. xx
