Imaginarium Design's April Theme...

This month, our Imaginarium Designs April them is "White With Sand". For the entire month, our design team have been playing along with the April Challenge over at White With 1. To check out all the Design team creations, just visit the Imaginarium Designs blog.

Here's my take on the challenge. I've always loved the challenges over at WW1. There is something about a pure white layout, with just a dash of colour. 

I know these chipboard pieces look cream, but in reality, they are more white. :) The glossy accents just messed with the colour a little. 

I've added splashes of glitter, on the flower petals, and random groups of pearls all over the page. 

Here, you can see that I have used a mask and texture paste all over my background. Once dry, I placed the mask back over, and coloured some sections with sand coloured ink. 

Thanks for stopping by!
If you want to join in the challenge, you better hurry - tomorrow is the last day. :)

Cheers and hugs, xxx

A Moment In Time with Couture Creations...

Have I mentioned how much I am loving being part of the Couture Creations team? As you may know, I love creating feminine, pretty, sweet things, and all the Couture Creations products are right up my alley. And the papers? Oh my, I'm in fussy cutting heaven. :)

Moment In Time is my second April project for Couture Creations, and you can find step-by-step instructions on how to recreate this layout on the Couture Creations blog

I'm in love with those flourish dies. They are so delicate and pretty. You will definitely be seeing a lot more of those in future works, lol! 

Yes, I have included my mandatory bling. Did you know Couture Creations has a HUGE supply of rhinestones and pearls in all shapes and sizes? You guessed right - I am one happy scrapper! :)

And even better, is that Couture Creations and Imaginarium Designs are "partner" companies, so I can still use all my favourite chipboard pieces at the same time. Bonus!!!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you have a fabulous week. 

Cheers and big hugs, xxx

Cotton Spools and Bobbins...

Sometimes it may seem that I am quiet, and not creating much. But it usually means I am working behind the scenes, on something that I can't yet share. And this is the perfect example - three beautiful creations that I can finally share with you - all published in the current Australian Scrapbooking Ideas magazine (Issue 31). 
If you would like to recreate these projects, you will find the step-by-step instructions in the magazine, pages 70-73. 

My first creation is a sewing display decor item. 

I really enjoyed creating this project because I got to use up a lot of bits and pieces that I have been saving forever. 

These pretty babies, are photo holders. :)
The dress form shapes can be found on Pinterest. 

And finally, a pretty wreath for my daughter's room. She loves sewing and creating, and her favourite colours just happen to be black and red. :)
Thanks for stopping by.
Cheers and big hugs, xxx

Mix and Match Layout Tutorial...

Hello everyone!!! I'm sharing my April Imaginarium Designs project with you today. And as a bonus, I've done a step-by-step tutorial on the Imaginarium Designs blog, to show you how you can create this wonderful layout for yourself. 

This project was all about colour, fun, and experimenting. Sometimes we all get so tied up with deadlines, that we forget to create for fun. :)

Gold has been the big trending "colour" of choice in recent months,  with so many companies producing gold accents and products. So, I decided to make the most of it, and add a little shimmer, shine and sparkle to my layout. 

I love, love, love crackle mediums. They produce such a beautiful texture and visual imagery.
Thank-you so much for stopping by and joining me today. 
Don't forget, if you'd like to create this layout for yourself, just visit the Imaginarium Designs blog for full details. If you do decide to create this layout, I'd love to see your masterpieces. Just leave a link here on this blog post, and I'll come and share some love with you. 
Hope you are all having a wonderful week.
Cheers and hugs, xxx:)

Sweet and Simple Card...

I found this sweet, little wooden bird when I walked into a clothes and home decor store a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't resist grabbing it and adding it to a card. 

This was one of the quickest cards I think I have ever made, lol! 
Papers are from My Mind's Eye (one of their older ranges if I remember correctly).
And the tassle is Prima. :)
Thanks for stopping by.
And wishing you all a Happy Easter. xxx:)
Cheers and hugs,
