'Treasure Forever' a new layout for Scraps of Elegance


Hello my crafty girls, I've had this page done for a week now with not minute to spare to 
post, to say I'm relieved that both school and traveling soccer are now over would 
be an understatement! There's so many ideas and projects swirling around
my head with not time at all for me to do them! I hope over the next few weeks
I can escape to my studio and play some more.
This is my latest page made with the beautiful April
Scraps of Elegance kit, I hope you like it :)

'Treasure Forever'


More yummy 49 & Market papers and flowers...I adore the deep blue of this paper, and the 
pretty blooms and leaves of grass are just so pretty. 
You can find our kits here, and don't forget we have a youtube channel here
where we post all kinds of cool video tutorials to get your creative juices flowing....

Here are a few closeups:


I used a lot from the Main Kit, the Elements Add On, and the Floral Add On
on this page, the Nuvo Sweet Lilac Drops, the Kaisercraft Butterflies Printed
Washi Tape, and the Ultimate Crafts 'Rambling Rose' Ephemera Die Cuts.




I used a few pieces of 2 Crafty Chipboard, I love those swirly words, and 
a little 'Fine Leafy Bush', you can find their products here.


See you soon,

'The Beauty of Nature is All Around'

Hello there my crafty peeps, I'm dropping in to share my very first layout created
with the beautiful new Scraps of Elegance kit called 'Song of Spring'.

'The Beauty of Nature is All Around'



We're back again this month with another amazing kit filled with 49 & Market papers and flowers....
love it! The title down the side of my page was cut from the strip at the bottom of the paper and I thought the sentiment was perfect. I love grungy patterns on this paper......I saw some outlines of leaves so I took my Prima watercolor pencils and traced around the leaves to bring out some
bright colors and then I added some pieces of paper that I fussy cut from another one of the papers, and layered on some flowers and some 2 Crafty Chipboards.


This is the kit for April, to find out where to purchase go here,
and don't forget to check out the online store here,
you can purchase one or all of the kit add ons, and all kinds of 
different products. 





See you soon,

'Happy Moments' a new layout for 13 arts

Hello friends! Today on the 13 arts blog we have created a post in honour of 
Mother's Day, and I created this page as a tribute to my beautiful mum.

'Happy Moments'



I love this photo of her.... young, happy and care free.
I am so lucky to have a mother like her,
loving, patient, kind and always there for me.
I chose the 'Out of the Blue' collection to make this layout as it has lots of pretty pinks and watercolor flowers, some of which I cut out of the paper and tucked in underneath my photo.

'It was Written....'

Hello dear readers, it's my turn over on the blog Mixed Media & Art today,
and this is the page I designed for them.

'It was written...'


I finally cracked open my 7 Dots Studio 'Writer's Block' collection that hubby bought me
for Christmas, what was I waiting for? These papers are amazing, love the warm brown
tones and vintage writing, beautiful. I thought this month's colors were green and orange,
but when I went to take another look, they're actually green and pink...oh well,
I still like how my page turned out....a bit of a nature theme, with some natural 
elements....... pine cones, flowers, twigs and leaves.

Here is this months moodboard:


You can find more info about the challenge here,
and checkout the blog here, so many jaw-dropping projects to spark
your imagination!

Here are a few close ups:





See you soon,

'Only You'

Hello girls, I have a vintage art journal spread to share today created
with the March Scraps of Elegance kit.

'Only You'


I love doing these spreads and when I saw the vintage images in one of the Scrapberry's papers
included in this month's Paper Add On, I knew what I wanted to do. The cool stamp in the main kit
really added a lot to the design too. I created a messy background using some Lindy's inks, and then layered on some lace, and the Petaloo flowers from the Floral Add On.

The best way to make sure you never miss a kit is to become a subscriber,
more info on that here, and don't forget to check out our blog here.

I saw a wonderful post all about art journaling in old books, and there
were some lovely examples of different styles that you can try,
you can find that post here.

Here are a few close ups:





Thanks for looking,

'Portrait of a Lady'


Hi girls, I'm back with another garden page....
this seems to be my style lately, just lots of textures, flowers and in this case,
lots of bright spring colors bursting through.

'Portrait of a Lady'


This is my second page with the lovely March kit 'Hello Beautiful'. I always order the Paper Add On each month as there are always some papers that compliment the main kit papers, and this month's add on included some pretty vintage papers by Scrapberry's.

To purchase our kits please go here, and don't forget to stop by our blog to see all the 
different interpretations of our kits by our design team, here.

I found a challenge called 'Boho Style' on one of my favourite shabby chic blogs
called 'Vintage Card Cafe'. I was inspired by the gypsy style of all the photos 
in this post, the vintage flair, and ultra feminine look with lots of lace.
To read an amazing post all about this style please go here, it's really well done :)

Here is the challenge:


Here are a few close ups:



This month's kit had some really pretty lavender flowers that I added here with some
green twine, and some sisal to give the page a natural look.


I also used some super pretty Prima flowers from the Floral Add On,
some of the gold Prima trim, the tiny white pearl beads from the kit, 
the Graphic 45 chipboards,
and lots of gold beads and pearls from my stash.


 Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Lisa xo
