Everyday Circus for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone

My final share for All About Scrapbooks this month are two layouts using Fancy Pants Everyday Circus.


My first layout today is Inseparable. For this layout I wanted to have a lot of "white" space to show off the starburst pattern on the paper. I've used a small 4 x 4 photo and kept my paper layers close together and I've added some texture with my chipboard background.
 
 
 

 
My second layout for this week is Roll Up


We went to the circus in the last school holidays and the kids had a blast! I thought this range of papers was just perfect to document our visit!!
 
For this layout I focused on the colours of the Big Top and layered my papers into banners. I chose a plain black background to really make the colours POP!

Kaisercraft Mix & Match for All About Scrapbooks

Hi everyone
  
I had a very scrappy weekend this weekend just gone, attending  the SisterChics scrapbook retreat from Friday night till Sunday, where All About Scrapbooks had their shop set up. It was the first retreat I've been on in years!!  I managed to scrap 10 layouts which was the target I set for myself - I am not a fast scrapper! I will be sharing most of those over the coming weeks. 
 
This week I have been creating with Kaisercrafts Mix and Match - this range is super popular and you can see why with this great colour combintation of red, black, white and kraft! 
 
My first share is  Love You.


 


And my second layout to share this week, XOXO is of me and my puppy Harry, isn't he cute?


 
 
 
If you pop on over to the All About Scrapbooks blog you can see some close-ups and what other products I have used that compliment this range.

Breathtaking Florence

Hi everyone

Sharing last weeks layout for All About Scrapbooks, a little behind with the blogging! 

I have used the Kaisercraft Outdoor Trail to create this page. Great colours in this range, and if you are not into the fishing/hunting theme, be sure to check out the B sides like I have for this layout - Breathtaking Florence. 

These views were both taken from the Pitti Palace, the back of which you can see in the bottom photo, and the top one the view of the Duomo and Campanile. I loved Florence, it is definitely on the list to return to one day, just beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back later this week with this weeks layout for All About Scrapbooks.

Hello everyone

Very excited to share the news that I am now on the Creative Team for Scrap the Girls! Lots of gorgeously talented ladies on the new team, go and check it out here.

The first challenge is this fabulous mood board, designed by Rikki:



As well as the colours, I have taken inspiration from the feathers, the morrocan piece and the hints of gold to create my layout.
