Cousins together layout |shop and crop dt

Hi there,
Happy Wednesday today I'm sharing a layout I created using simple stories carpe diem collection 
You can find it here on the shop and crop website 
I absolutely adore the colours in this collection the perfect pops of colour and the florals 


Love the florals, I thought with this layout I would use lots of circles 
Because I used lots of Dottie patterned papers 


I staggered the title as I thought it worked best rather than underneath each other 
I love having the 2 different alpha stickers to do the title 


I used a set of stitched circles nesting dies to add die cut circles to my layout 
And fussy cutting lots of the beautiful florals to bring the layout together 


I also add clusters of the circles at the top and bottom of my layout to add a bit more texture and colour 
Along with the black and white stripes helping it pop


I hope you have enjoyed my layout inspiration this week

Happy scrapping..xx

Makeup Brush Box | Kaisercraft DT

Hi there,
This week I created this makeup box for my daughter Kara 
And what's great about this box is that is made out of the empty flourish boxes 
I used a glue gun to glue it all together I used 5 of them to make the box







Using the gold foil I completely covered the outside of the box 
And I added die cuts from the collectables and the wood flourishes to the front

Hippity Hoppity Layout and Cards | Doodlebug DT

Hi there,
today I'm  sharing a layout and process video 
I absolutely adore these little flowers from the odds and ends die cuts 
they are just so lovely and I've had so much fun layering them




I had a basic design in mind for this layout using stripes of patterned paper layered at the top and bottom 

Here is my process video 


I cut a mini doily in half to add under the strips of patterned paper and machine stitched them down 


After matting my photo I added another doily behind it then started clustering 
The flowers and adding sprinkles and shape sprinkles 



I absolutely adore the little cute clips they are super cute 
I also added some cardstock to the back of a few phrase stickers and popped them on some pop dots


And added my title using the odds and ends diecuts


I hope you have enjoyed my process video today

Hello sunshine Layout | Doodlebug Design DT

Hi there,
 today I'm sharing a layout and process video ..created for doodlebug 
Seriously how super cute is this spring things collection..I absolutely adore all the lovely flowers and bugs



With this layout I wanted to use clusters of flowers across the layout on either side of my photo 
I had 3 main colours in mind, blending them throughout the layout 

Here is my process video..



Here is a close up of the corner of that doily die cut 
and how I folded it and tucked the dir cut under the edge and sewn around the border 


The die cut butterfly added a extra element of colour to the corner of my photo 


I love how the little icons stickers had the hello sunshine just perfect for a small title 

I used the shape sprinkles are just super lovely for adding a dimension 
to the cardstock stickers and die cut flowers

Love you Layout | Jot Magazine Challenge

Hey there,
Today I'm sharing a layout of my hubby,I created for jot magazine challenge 
I don't normally get that many photos of him cause he always complaining about not being able to smile properly lol I always laugh when he says that...




I went stash hunting and found some Amy tangerine patterned papers to go with the mood board 
I wasn't sure what design I was going to use I started with creating a heart doily 
And backed it with a bright pink 


So here is a freebie cut file I used for my title on my layout 


I cut strips of patterned paper and added them to the left hand side
And adding some doodlebug striped washi down the edge
Then I added a big strip of patterned paper to stop at the middle 
Then centred the doily in the middle adding my Matted photo and embellishments 
I finally finished it off with a few flicks of black mist and some doodlebug sprinkles 






Thanks for checking out my layout
