Inspired Blueprints stuff...

Hi there, just back to share my latest Inspired Blueprints bits. These 2 are both for Sketch #23, it was my turn to do an 8.5x 11 layout and a card, and this is was I came up with. The layout uses mostly Crate Paper, and the card is Cosmo Cricket papers and Stampendous Spot's Botz stamps, I love these,  you can come up with loads of different robots, as the bits are all individual, very cool for boy cards. Anyway that's it for today, I'm off to start packing, we are flying to Sydney on Wednesday for one of my Brothers' wedding on Saturday, should be lots of fun, but yuck, I hate packing.

More layouts to share.

I've got a bit of time now the kids are in bed, so thought I'd share some more layouts. This first one uses Cosmo Cricket Everafter Sassafras Lass Vintage Yummy papers and embellishments, some Kaiser bling, a Hiedi Swapp bling circle, and Thickers alphas.

This next one was for Inspired Blueprints Sketch #21. I've used Cosmo Cricket and Sassafras papers and embellishments again, I really loved this sketch, it was a bit different with the large photo.
These next 2 have both been for Country Papercraft newsletters over the last month or so, have been wanting to do a layout with these funny photo's of me as a little girl, and I'm really happy with how it turned out, we have to use Black with lime green and salmon pink, I did use a little creative license with the colours.

And this last one was for a cyber crop we did in the Country Papercraft forum for NSD, I love this photo of my Grandad and me, and love how the layout turned out, especially love the Glimmer Chip owl, I filled his belly with orange micro beads and a couple for his eyes.
So that's it for tonight, my DH is on his way home from work, we haven't seen him in 3 weeks so, we are looking forward to him being home for a bit. Hope you have a great weekend. Bye for now. x

I'm Back...

Not that I really went anywhere, just dropped off the blog radar for quite a few Kept meaning to post, and then kept looking at the amount of layouts I have to share and it all looked too hard :) Anyway, thought I should at least start to pop a few on here, so here we go.

This next layout was for the mid-May newsletter at Country Papercraft, and I really like how it turned out. I had a bit of fun with some blue Glimmer Mist, as you can see, and I had to try out my new Quickutz Damask Die too, LOVE this thing, and have used it a few times already, the papers are Crate Paper Lillian, which are so gorgeous. I also ended up drawing and cutting out the large yellow flower because I didn't have one that suited, I added a bit of Kindy Glitz to the edges and I love the look of it, must do that more often :)

This next layout I did for the CPC Blog, and it was an example for one of my sketches that I did for the blog. I've used the very cute and funky Crate Paper Orbit collection, I just love the aliens they are so cool. Also used half a piece of a Jenni Bowlin die cut. The journalling reads "Whenever we go to the beach you all end up trying to make the BIGGEST sandcastle, or the DEEPEST hole. If Dad had his way we would bring heavy machinery then you really could be digging to China." Thought that might explain the title a bit

The layout below is one of my favorites, I did it for the County Papercraft June newsletter, and really love how it turned out, I used Cosmo Cricket Everafter papers, which I LOVE, and punched out lots of flowers to add to others that I had. Also did some stamping on this one with Versamark Watermark ink, and Fancy Pants stamps. The butterflies are a little punched one, and a Cuttlebug one, die-cut with embossed paper.

And the lucky last is a double I created for my Architecture class over at the  Country Papercraft Design School. My class started on Monday, and my very clever students have until next Monday to put my class into action and create there own double-layout. I taught them how to use White Space on layouts, and the theme they have to use is "Home". Check out the
  CPC gallery there is some fantastic layouts being uploaded.

Well that's it for me today, I have LOTS more to show, but will put some more layouts up over the next couple of days. Take Care xxx
