LITTLE BOY BLUE

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Today I am here with a layout I made using the Little Boy Blue collection from Crate Paper.  It is a range I bought right after Jonathan was born, but never found the right photo to use with it.  So when I found this picture of him that we took at 6 weeks of him, I knew this was the right collection. 


Products Used
Crate Paper Little Boy Blue 12x12 patterned paper
Crate Paper Little Boy Blue embellishments
Fabscraps alphabet letters
Tim Holtz stickles
Buttons, bling, twine and felt heart (from my stash)
 
Here are some pictures of the detail and embellishments.

I used Fabscraps chipboard alphabets for the title, which I covered with Tim Holtz stickles, just to give it a bit of shine.  

 
I used the rosettes, stars and date die cut from the Crate collection and clustered them all together at the bottom right hand corner of the photo.  I added the ruler to the cluser, as well as a felt heart and some buttons and bling.  I also added a stitch to the heart.  

 


 
I the top right hand corner I made a banner and embellished it with some buttons and bling, from my stash.  I also included some hand stitching, altering between red and blue. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

LET'S SCRAP SKETCH 3-5-14

Monday, April 7, 2014

Today I want to share with you one of my most recent layout I made with a Let's Scrap sketch.  Here is my take on the sketch below. 


Products Used
Echo Park Times and Season 2 12x12 patterned paper - Number Circles
Echo Park Times and Season 2 12x12 patterned paper - Multi Floral
Echo Park Times and Season 2 12x12 patterned paper - Manly Stripe
Echo Park Times and Season 2 12x12 patterned paper - Ambersand
Echo Park Times and Season 2 12x12 patterned paper - Journalling cards
Echo Park Times and Season 2 element stickers
Echo Park Times and Season 2 12x12 alpha stickers

Here are some close-up pictures of the detail. 
 
Due to the fact that the papers were so busy, I did not want to embellish a lot and therefore only include the journaling card (bottom left hand corner of the layout), calendar sticker as well as some doily stickers (top right hand corner) and then then title at the bottom of the layout, where I used a combination of fonts. 
 
Thank you for the visit!

THANKFUL FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE

Friday, March 21, 2014

Hi there ladies, I really hope everyone in the Northern hemisphere is having an awesome spring and are excited for the summer!  Here in South Africa, we have really been having some crappy weather with LOTS of rain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But enough about the weather, today I am here to share another two single Project Life inspired pages with you, that was made for Frosted Designs!  The pictures were take on the same day, but some were taken in the morning and the rest were taken in the afternoon, after Jonathan was bathed and changed.

Here is the first page, the right hand side.

Products Used
Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 12x12 Collection kit
Project Life Jade Core Kit
Buttons, bling and felt heart from my stash
 
These pictures were taken in the afternoon and early evening, after we bathed Jonathan and changed him into this blue and white outfit.  


I included a Project Life card here which I embellished with a felt heart cut from my Cuttlebug, some staples, buttons and bling.

The journalling on this card reads:
"Thursday - our last day in hospital.  After your bath that morning, mommy dressed you in the blue & white babygrow.  Even though it was "newborn" size it still seemed too big for you.  these were some of the first pictures mommy took of you being awake."


I used bits and pieces of the Vintage collection from Simple Stories to finish the page off with.
 
And now on to the second page!!!!!!!!!

Products Used
Echo Park Reflections Fall 12x12 Collection kit
UmWow Layered Banners Chipboard
Heidi Swapp stencil - Honeycomb
Kaisercraft Hidden Treasures collectables
Kaisercraft Rub-ons
Project Life Midnight Core Kit
 
This one is so far my favourite and I had tons of fun with this page!!!!!!!!!!


So, dear Mr Tim Holtz (huge fan over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) was in South Africa during March and I was lucky enough to be able to attend his class.......  One of the awesome things he bought us and that we worked with was his brand new 1" distressing ink pads, and oh my word, they are stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So what did I do when I got home, you guessed it, used the mini distressing ink pads!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
I covered cardstock with old book paper, and did some stencil work with Tim Holtz distress ink on it.   Once this was done, I included some chipboard elements, a rub-on and some die-cuts I had lying around.  

For this card, I cut a piece from the Echo Park Fall collections, added some die-cuts and stitching.  



 
So that concludes my Project Life pages for this week!  I hope you enjoyed them!  But wait, I am not done...........................

LET'S SCRAP SKETCH 4-10-13

Hi there, I want to share a layout with you today that I made using a Let's Scrap sketch.
 
A while back I bought a kit from Glenda with Echo Park papers included.  I really loved this collection.  There were so many papers in the kit, that I had more than enough to complete another double layout with the left over papers.  You will not believe it, but I still have papers left over!  
 
 
The pictures were taken in January 2013 by Henriette from Howling Moon Photography.  I scheduled a family lifestyle shoot at our home and they really turned out awesome!  These were some of the awesome pictures of father and son!

JUST CRUISIN'

Monday, February 10, 2014

Hello there, today I am sharing a layout I made using a sketch from Nuts About Sketches.

 
Here is my take on the sketch.  I used BoBunny papers for the layout.  The pictures are from the Sunday after Jonathan turned ONE.  My parents bought him a tri-cycle for his first birthday.  Due to the fact that it was to big to take and open at the Spur on his birthday, we went over for lunch and he had a ball opening this BIG box.  The top two pictures were taken of him while he waited for his dad and grand-pa to assemble the tri-cycle, and the bottom three pictures are from his first ride on the tri-cycle. 

 
The flags and banners are all from the BoBunny papers.  I just added some bling and buttons to the banners.   
 
 
For the title I used some red chipboard stickers that I had in my stash.  I think it is a very old range from Thickers.  

 
Instead of machine stitching I used a stitching stamp, which I stamped above and below the title.  

 
Lastly I added some bakers-twine to the flags in the top right corner of the layout.  I also added a little tag I found somewhere in my stash, I added the date, 8 September 2013 to the tag.  

 
Thank you for the visit!

CUT&PASTE TO A BEAUTIFUL LIFE

Friday, February 7, 2014

Hello ladies, it is Friday again, which means it time for another Project Life Inspired post over at Frosted Designs.

 
I have two single pages for you today.  Even though they will be next to one another in the album, I wanted to created separate layouts for the pictures. 
 
The first layout is about the day we took Jonathan home from the hospital, and these are the only two pictures I have from that day.  I used bits and pieces from the My Mind's Eye - Cut&Paste collection, as well as some Project Life cards to which I added some journaling and embellishments. 
 
The journaling reads:
After being in hospital for 3 nights, both you & mommy were able to go home on Friday, 7 September. 
We dressed you warmly that day as it was a bit chilly. 
Daddy came to fetch us at around 10h00. 
We went home for the first time as a family!  You had your bottle & went to sleep for the first time in you own room & your own bed - what a champ you were!
 
Mommy slept a bit in the afternoon while daddy looked after you.
That night you had your fist visitors - Aunty Marine & Uncle Nick.  
 
Products Used
My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste - Hey You Journaling Card
My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste - Hey You Trend
My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste - Carefree Relaxed

My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste - Decorative Chipboard Buttons
My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste - Cardstock Stickers Carefree Labels
Color wash cold pressed watercolour tags 
Project Life Jade Core Kit
 
Here are some close-ups of the detail.  



 
The second layout has pictures of Jonathan sleeping in his cot the following day, 8 September.  Here I also just had these two pictures.  I really love the contrast with the red and white, so wanted to use paper that emphasized that, hence my use of the Beautiful Life collection by Echo Park. 
 
The journaling reads:
Mommy dressed you in a lovely white & red outfit when you woke up that morning. 
Here you were taking a late morning nap.  In the afternoon mommy & daddy's friends came to visit, meet you & watch the Springboks play Nieu Zeeland.   

Products Used
Echo Park Beautiful Life Collection Kit
