everlasting love layout | kraft plus challenge

Hi there,
So today I thought I would have a play with some more Bella blvd you are loved collection 
And join in on the kraft plus challenge 
So the challenge is to use a shaped photo so I decided to do circles using circle stitched nesting dies

I started with my kraft cardstock and cut it down and matted it on some patterned paper 
Then I die cut a few circle die cut patterned papers and added them across the kraft cardstock 

Then I die cut out my photo and layered it on top of the middle top circle 
Then I started adding stickers and ephemera to my circles 

I used a black sharpie and added some plus signs at top and bottom of my layout

Layouts | Shop and crop DT

Hi there,
Today I'm sharing a a few layouts my first layout is about my scrap space 
Nothing better than a clean desk ready to scrap on..

I started with white cardstock, then fussy cut those big arrow lines out as they were a bit big to cut out with my paper trimmer . Then using my sewing machine I add some machine stitching along the edges 
Then next I add some of that lovely plus sign patterned paper behind my photo and some to the left hand side of my layout 

I like to cluster my embellishments around my photo and sometimes in one corner to give extra dimension and texture to the layout 

I add a cure paper clip on the left of my photo and underneath that I put a little quote 
Where the magic happens ,I've tucked tags and little bits in behind to give it dimension and colour 
And then I've added my title 

For my second layout 
It's my take on this months challenge 
I chose stamping, embossing powder, cardstock

I started by being inspired by the collection and drawing a few flowers and a swan
That I turned into a fut files 
I backed my flowers on the light purple cardstock and the leaves on the light green and adding rhinestones and chipboard to the centres of the flowers 

I pop some of the flowers up on double sided foam tape and backed the swan on the dark purple cardstock 
And did the same for the swans wing and popped it up to give it that 3D look

Then I matted my photo on some pretty flower patterned paper and tucked it under the swan and flowers 
Then using some vellum I stamped and used colour blast bling gold embossing powder and embossed it and add it underneath the top left hand corner of my photo layers 

Then I added a bow paper clip to the top and chipboard 
And here are some close ups of my flowers and swan

zoo layouts | doodlebug design DT

Hi there,
sharing a couple of zoo layouts..
How cute are these animals simply just adorable and the patterned papers just pop
So for my first layout I used the cute little giraffes as my main theme for my layout as in my photo is a mother and baby eating ..

I want to stick to a colour combination that would blend across the layout 
I started with white cardstock and the b side of jolly giraffes and creating a border around my white cardstock 
And  I wanted to bring more of that patterned paper into the middle of the layout, so i matted my photo on it and used the cut off bit to go behind it
Then I added a strip of animal crackers behind my matted photo then a smaller strip of roly poly pandas 
And adhering it al down to start to embellish the page.
I used the mother and baby  giraffes from the odds and ends die cuts and put them on the left side of my photo 

 I added the die cut leaves to 3 corners of my photo then a few stickers 
From the this and that cardstock stickers and a cute mini paper clip 

Using the leaf shape sprinkles I add a 1 to each bunch of leaves 
And I thought I would add the cute little giraffe head shape sprinkle just tucked underneath the heart sticker 
Then I added the adventure title and some matte sprinkles to finish it off

For my second layout I wanted a big title 
I started with my white cardstock and cutting a big block title out with my silhouette cameo 
And backed it with the b side of zoo friends 

Then using the b side of roly poly pandas I fit a strip to go down the edge of the layout beside the title to break up the black and white then I cut a strip from safari plaid and add it over the strip on the edge
Then I repeated the same on the other side using stripes then I machine stitched the edges to add a bit more texture 

I used a strip of Swiss dot beetle black petite print then layered a bit of roly poly pandas b side to bring more green in then using the other side of the Swiss dot beetle black patterned paper I matted my photo 
I add a little die cut frame from the odds and ends behind my matted photo 
A few word stickers from the this and that cardstock stickers on the corners of my photo 

I used the cute little zebra from the at the zoo icon stickers ad put him on the left side of my photo 
Then using the doodle pop paradise palm I put it on the right hand top corner of my photo 
Then added some beetle black cardstock stickers and a few matte sprinkles

And I added a few phrase stickers on the photo 

I added some balloons from the odds and ends pack
And machine stitched the balloon strings and added a little bow using the blue jean twine 

I add this cute little dragon from the odds and ends pack 
with a little party hat that I used pop dots to pop it up

And to finish of the layout I added the little dots and stars from the shape sprinkles

And matted it on top and machine stitching around the boarder 
Then I added the umbrella cut after backing it with patterned paper 

Next I fussy cut the gold foil flowers and started tucking them around the umbrella 
And adding some die cuts
