Hi there everyone, today I want to share with you a double layout I created using the awesome Sauve collection from Authentique. 
I must confess, I received this collection a while back, but I could not find the right pictures (nor the inspiration) to use the paper.  And then finally I came across pictures we took of Jonathan at 4 months and they were PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used the following sketch for my layout. 
Products Used
Authentique Sauve 12x12 Collection kit
Authentique Sauve cardstock die-cut circles & stickers
Authentique Sauve cardstock die-cut titles & phrases
Authentique Sauve cardstock die-cut stamp blocks
Authentique Sauve 8x12 cardstock stickers
American Craft Thickers Alpha stickers
As part of the embellishments I used die-cuts, stickers and phrases from the collection, as well as buttons, brads and bling which I had in my stash.  Here are some close-ups of the detail and embellishments. 

I also included a quote at the top of the right hand page which reads:  "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

I really enjoyed creating this layout and working with this paper range!  Luckily there are more pictures as well as paper leftover, so I will be able to create some more layouts with this range!!!!!!!!!
All of the products I used is available in the Frosted Designs store.  Don't forget to head on over to the store and fill those shopping carts!!!!

Wow I cannot believe it!!!!!!!!!!  I have been picked to form part of the Design Team over at Let's Get Sketchy!!!!!!!!!  I am super excited and cannot wait to get started on their sketches!!!!!!!!!!

Let's Get Sketchy is a sketch challenge site owned by Brenshevia.  The challenges are posted every Monday and your entries into the challenge are due by the 30th of each month! 
Each week we select "Featured" layouts from the current week's entries.  In addition to these, the Design team picks a "Fave".  The voting starts on Saturday each week and ends on Sunday, 2pm CST.  So make sure you join the fun and get those pages done!  We are looking forward to seeing you layout creations! 
I am super excited to be working as part of this really talented team. 


Frosted Designs brand new Simply Sweet Kit is exactly that.......  Simply Sweet!!!  It features the NEW Heidi Swapp Dreamy collection, take a look..........

How beautiful is this kit?!?!?!  The combination of patterns and colours make this kit very versatile... great for virtually any theme or project you are working on. 
Let me tell you a little bit about the kits at Frosted Designs.  Our kits are designed to allow everyone a chance to add a little mixed media to whatever project you are working on!  I personally, like to try a new product that I wouldn't necessarily pick up in a store or feel like I wouldn't know how to begin to use.  Each month we add one of these products to the kits to allow you the chance to play with different inks, mists, paints, etc.  This month our mixed media item in the main kit is the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glase in Paradise Pink.  And because we know that you might not know what to do with that product, there will be tutorials throughout the month to show you how to put that item to use!
Our kits are broken down into 3 parts.  We allow you to CUSTOMIZE your kit by selecting 2 of the 3 options that work best for you style of creating.  Everyone who orders a kit gets what is in the MAIN KIT.  You then get to choose between the CLEAN FUN OPTION and the MESSY FUN OPTION to complete your kit.  These are not add-ons, you get to customize at no extra cost.  The CLEAN FUN OPTION is for those of you who like to scrapbook and make cards.  It usually includes more paper and a few more embellishments.  The MESSY FUN OPTION includes a stencil or stamp along with some other fun "messy" items!  This option is great for those of you who like to do off the page projects, art journaling and other projects along those lines. 
Love both options?!?!?  Well you can have both for just $7.50.....  (about R100 excl. postage and depending on the exchange rate).

Here is what you receive in the Simply Sweet kit

Hi everyone, can you believe it is Wednesday again and with that the month of May has arrived. 

May is one of our family's busiest month.  It is my birthday, my mom's birthday as well as Mother's day :-)  So lots of parties and photo opportunities :-)

So without further chatting and beating around the bush.  I am here today to share with you a layout I made with the sketch at Let's Scrap this week. 

Products used
My Mind's Eye Kate & Co Oxford Line 12x12 double sided paper
Tim Holtz® Alterations Sizzix® Sizzlits® Decorative Strip Dies Paper Rosette
 Here are some pictures of the detail. 
I used a stitching template and added some hand-stitching to the left hand side of the layout.  The rosettes I made using the Tim Holtz die and my cuttlebug.  Finally to finish of the layout, I included some flags on the far right of the layout and some die-cuts which I cut from the papers. 
I hope you enjoyed my layout and thank you for the visit.
