I love to make stuff just for fun and to decorate my craft studio and theirs nothing like a bit of colour to brighten up the room then these cute little die cuts and handmade pinwheels

And the small pinwheel is 3 inch and middle is 2 inch
And on the edges I use some border punches to the edges 


And decorating the tin can was super easy 
I just covered the can with a strip of patterned paper and then cut 2 strips 
and using my paper edges scissors I add a scalloped edge then add a doily in the middle and popped a clear die cut from the odds and ends pack.

Summer Sunshine Layout

Hi there,
Today I'm sharing a layout I created just having a play with some primamarketing St. tropez and free spirit 
My favorite thing todo is to fussy cut flowers and add them around my photo and background 
I've been loving using black gesso and a paint brush lately for my background using paint strokes as a feature on the background really makes the patterned paper pop



Then I added a stencil tubaroses with some light pink textured paste
Across the paint strokes to add more dimension and colour 


Then I started to add all the fussy cut flowers at the top and bottom of my layout 
I added my photo in the center and using some patterned paper for some layers behind my photo 
And tucking some of the fussy cut flowers around the photo 


And I added some die cut doilies around the photo tucked just under the layers 
I also added some pink flowers from the rose quartz collection because I only had 3 flowers left over 
I separated the bottom petals and added a bit of bling in one and tucked it under the top right corner of my photo 
I added chipboard for my title and a little bow in the top left hand corner of the photo 


I found a butterfly stamp I had and stamped it 3 times and covered it in clear embossing powder and heat embossed it 
And added it in 3 places on my layout

layout and travelers notebook page | shop and crop kit club


Hi there 
Happy Wednesday today I'm sharing a layout and travelers notebook page 
Using this months kaisercraft kit patterned papers 
I Love surfing Pinterest for ideas and I found this fabulous layout and really loved the way the paint was used so check out her fabulous page 



I've used the same design idea but really wanted to add lots of fussy cutting to it and change it up a bit 
And adding more clusters that I like to do 


I love white space, and really wanted it to be very clustered 
around the photo and the embellishments at the top of the layout 


For the black paint strokes I used colour blast heavy back gesso 
And with the watercolour droplets I used the colour blast shimmer cubes in bling and green apple 


From my stash I used fancy pants puffy alphas 


And for my second project 
I created a travelers notebook page using more of the golden grove collection 
My photo was taken on Christmas Eve 2 years ago on my daughter mel's birthday we decided a funny photo to mark the day would be fun so we all pulled funny faces 


I added lots of fussy cutting of flowers around the edges 
And tucked some underneath my photo 
Adding clusters at the bottom of the photo and my title on the other side of the page 


I hope you have enjoyed my layout inspiration today

Lovely Layout | Make it Prima Challenge


Hi there ,
So tonight while everyone was watching a TVs show that I wasn't that fussed on I decided to join in on the fabulous make it prima challenge for my layout I'm using St. Tropez collection 
And also wanted to incorporate one of my cut file butterflies 



I started off with the fabulous wood paneling as my background 
Then I stencilled tuberoses stencil across the background using texture paste 
Then I cut out my butterfly using white cardstock and my cameo and add some watercolour colours to it
Then I back it with more patterned papers from the collection 


Then I fussy cut a few flowers from another patterned paper putting them around the butterfly 
Then I stuck the butterfly down using double sided foam tape to give it dimension 
Then I added my photo of my fur buddy kush and then embossed it with white embossing powder 
a 2 crafty chipboard heart to go around the Photo and then started add more fussy cut flowers 


And other flowers from the collection to add more colour I tuck so puffy stickers around the flowers 
And added some ephemera for my title and to cluster at the bottom of the butterfly 


Here is a close up of my photo and my clustering of the fussy cut flowers and other Prima flowers 


Thanks for stopping by my blog 
Happy crafting xx

Sweet Flowers | Doodlebug Design DT


Hi their, 
sharing my take on the fun sketch from Becky at page maps
When I first looked at the sketch I wasn't sure what colours I was going to choose for my layout but I had this photo of Mother's Day flowers 
And thought it would be perfect to think about lovely weather instead of cold and wet



Once I had the photo I come up with a colour palette for my layout 
Grey,pink,green,white,teal and a touch of yellow , I wanted to keep the layout clean 


I started with the background using the grey gingham patterned paper 
Then using the sweet little polka dot patterned paper for the center 
Then I started with the cluster at the top of the layout 
Adding a white mini doily and layers of stripes of patterned paper and machine stitching I also made a tab from a die cut then stapled it to the layers then adding part of my title 
and to top it off with a flower doodlepop and using some heart shape sprinkles to tie in the colours 


To tie in more of the colours at the bottom of my layout I added a die cut from the odds and ends pack 
And adding more of the fun shape sprinkles around the die cut 
Then I added a few patterned papers tucked behind my photo layers 


Att the bottom left hand corner of my photo I created a little cluster of hearts with another tab and 
Shape sprinkles and adding the rest of my title 


And here you can see a close up of my photo of the Mother's Day flowers 


Here is my supply list 
5475 honeybee Doodle pop
3435 lily white teensy type cardstock stickers 
4605 lily white mini doilies

More Prima fun...

Hi there,
So last month prima marketing had their yearly call and I was excited about entering this year
I feel my crafting and photography is way better then last year I feel I have more to offer this year and my term on the kaisercraft team has come to a end after 5 years it's been fun but I really ready for a new and exciting adventure where ever it takes me so I thought I would take part in the Prima call...fingers crossed 
So here is one of the layouts I created just for the call I wanted to just do a layout simple no mediums like paint or gesso just clean and simple 

I really enjoyed playing with this collection bringing in the brights with the lighter colours 
I love just playing with paper but this collection is lovely! 
My daughter finally got her braces in may 


And here is a card I created using the softer tones in the st tropez collection 
But of course prima flowers are beautiful and make the card pop


And I love creating stuff for my daughters 
This year my youngest daughter is beginning to try her hand at makeup so I made her a makeup brush box 
For all her brushes 




And this one was a little idea I had for some cute Decor 
That I want to create, jut love those little pink flowers 




And watercolour just love sitting on the couch and colouring in 
So I thought I would give this prima watercolour freebie colouring page a go


And here is another one I coloured as I wanted to use different colours and lighter using watercolour pencils 
While sitting on the couch with hubby binge watching ER ......
