Love you Layout

Hi there, 
Happy Friday I enjoyed the afternoon by watching Netflix and scraping 
Something that seems to be my thing lately so I had these 2 photos of my daughter Kara 
She’s growing up so fast and I feel like the months going so fast it’s October already that means only 2 months left of year 11 I can’t believe it’s went so fast 

I matted my cardstock on patterned paper and machine stitched around the border 
With a grid design in mind I wanted to add a few squares as I’m using 3x4 photos 
And wanted the design to fit in a square 

I die cut 2 squares to go opposite sides of the photos and and added a few fussy cut flowers and a arrow I cut out using the leftover frame from the arrow sticker

I used the same colours of patterned papers behind both photos 
Creating that duplicated look

I cut one of the squares using a leftover scrap of patterned paper that I cut a circle out of
I added part of my title in the middle

Christmas winter wonderland Layout Doodlebug Design DT

Hi there, 
 today Im sharing a layout of my daughter eve ! Using milk and cookies collection 
I absolutely love when you are looking through the photos on your phone and find cute photos you’re kiddies have taken .. with this layout I wanted to use lots of pink but just enough to not over do it..

I trimmed off 1 inch from 2 sides of my cardstock and matted it on that lovely sweet pink patterned paper 
And machine stitched around the border. Then I cut out a stocking with a flower I had designed 
Next I added patterned papers behind the design I used one of those cut little cookie stickers for the center of the flower

Then after adding the stocking to my layout I add my photo matted on patterned paper and tucked a doily underneath the photo then I added a cluster of different die cuts,heart sticker and cute Christmas tree clip
And tucking a tab sticker from the sticker sheet at the top 

Then next I added the Christmas title from the odds and ends pack and the rest of the title from the sticker sheet 
At the bottom of my photo 

Here is a look at the full stocking 

And lastly I added some sequins around the layout

Thankful pumpkin layout | Prima Marketing DT

Hi there,
Today I’m sharing a layout created for prima marketing using the fabulous fall collection Amber Moon 
This layout is all about my pop whose farmed his whole life he’s in his 80’s and doesn’t let that stop him 
When I was young I spent a lot of time in the paddock picking and weeding or just walking the rows with him so I’m very thankful I got to do that with him as I don’t see him a lot anymore as I live away from them..

So I started off with my photo and as I was thinking pumpkins I decided to use a pumpkin cut file I created 
For fall projects once I had cut the pumpkin out I back it with the lovely floral patterned paper then used the b side of the patterned paper for the stork popped it up on some cardboard to give it dimension 
Then matted my woodgrain patterned paper on the striped patterned paper and stitching a border around the edge and applied the pumpkin to the centre 

Then I started adding the embellishments flowers, leaves and die cut leaves 
With the die cut leaf I used the paint opal magic gold..I love it cause it gives it a green and gold colouring 

Next I added my layers behind my photo keeping it simple with a few bits of paper from the 3x4 and 4x6 journaling card pads and my title from the ephemera pack 

Then lastly adding another little cluster of flowers at the bottom of the pumpkin and a few say it with crystals 
And a little bit of gesso smudge on the flowers and a bit of a flick on the woodgrain background.

Lovely Layout | Prima Marketing DT

Hi all,
Well today I’m sharing a layout for prima using Amber Moon collection..
I love finding that perfect photo I’ve taken through the year that just pops with the beautiful colours of the Amber Moon patterned papers...I would really love to walk among the trees that turn in fall it must be a really beautiful sight to see but here in au we don’t really have that many trees that do the big change,but I’m hoping to plant some to have that feeling of fall....

So with this layout I was thinking crisp so bright white cardstock with woodgrain,orange tones and some cream with foil , die cutting and embossing a simple layout with layers

I covered some cardstock with the black glitter washi tape and die cut out a bow to add to the top of my layout along with a few strips of patterned paper and die cut from the ephemera pack 

I embossed a floral stamped image and added it behind 
die cut leaves and fussy cut a floral wreath out to embellish the top left hand corner of my photo 
I used one of the flowers and pulled it apart to add the crystals in the center 

I added lots of little layers of patterned paper behind my photo 
And add a title stapled to the bottom of my photo 

Then I add another cluster of embellishments, embossing and diecuts

Thanks for checking out my layout today

ocean layout | prima marketing DT

Hi there,
Today I'm sharing a layout using St. tropez .
I love how the blue in this collection just pops with the white cardstock 

I always love adding borders around my cardstock by trimming down the cardstock on 2 edges 
And backing it on patterned paper, it helps draw the eye to the center and adding colour
I decided on a photo I took off the maloolaba lighthouse cliff edge a shot of the waves crashing on the rocks 
I could sit and watch that for hours it's so calming 
The striped patterned paper is from the patterned paper with all the strips I cut it in half and added it to the top and bottom of my layout to add more colour to break up the white a bit still have my white space I love

I layered a heap of strips behind my photo using blues ,woodgrain and cream colours to blend with my photo 
After adding my photo I added clusters of flowers in the corners of my photo tucking underneath some of my cut file cuts
Giving it that tropical look then I flicked black gesso and added some of those say it with crystals..
Here are some close ups of my layout....

love it layout | prima marketing DT

Hi there,
Today I’m sharing a layout created for prima marketing using the beautiful rose quartz collection collection and the flowers that go with the collection are just absolutely beautiful, I love how the colour just helps make the page pop more 

I started with my white cardstock and was going to add some gesso splatter but I thought I would keep this one a really clean design with fussy cutting a big kitty cut out with my cameo and a few other cuts in white cardstock with beautiful clusters of Prima flowers 

Here’s some of the close ups of the flower clusters 
I love to add a little bit of cotton threads underneath the flowers 

Here is another cluster with some ephemera tucked underneath 

And I also add some around my photo 

Here is a process video of how I created this layout

Halloween creations for Doodlebug Design DT

Hi there
 sharing some cards and a layout created with the fun doodlebug collection 
Booville , I thought I would make some cards cause those Doodle pops are just so stinking cute!

My first card I used the orange file tab card and chose the same colours
As the little boy Doodle pop
Matting the patterned paper on top then a few strips of patterned paper in the centre then a die cut doily 
Then a mini doily and added him in the centre 
Cut out the sentiment and backed it with black cardstock 

The second card I was thinking bright colours 
I used the fabulous candy patterned paper just so cute to matt on the background of my card from the card pack 
Using the same design as the first this time adding a border punched edges

And I decided to add something inside of the card
Happy Halloween and a few die cuts circles and some fussy cut pumpkins 
Along with the broom from the little girl Doodle pop

With my third card I thought it would be so cute to add that little house Doodle pop to the centre 
Of the small card from the card set using the black and white stripes for the background 
And a little sentiment at the bottom 

And I decided to make a layout using a photo of our cat Luna 
As she's sweet like candy!!

I went with a simple design and used a 4x6 photo I wanted the main focal point to be around the photo 
I started with washi tape to bring more black into the layout then adding that candy paper off centre 
And a few strips of that black and white striped patterned paper using scalloped edge scissors to add a decorative edge to the patterned paper strips then I placed my photo and matted it on 2 different patterned papers and adhered it down 

Then I decided I needed some flowers and using my cameo machine I cut 2 designs out flowers and leaves 
And backed them with patterned paper and using the Doodle pop little pumpkins I added them to the centres of the flowers I thought this would add a cute little touch and then I added the leave just tucked underneath the flowers 

Then it was time to add a title with those cute new alphabet stickers I used beetle black and the gold

And here is a close up of my photo
