"Live" - Layout

Hi all, I am back and I have my Monday Mad About Scrappin project to share with you all and today it is a layout.  I have been going through all of this years Creative Team kits and using up all my leftovers.  To create this layout I have delved into the papers (and scraps) from My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing collection.

I have cut some hexagons from some of the off cuts I had and then using a black pen outlined the edges.

The gorgeous paper flowers are a mix from the Mad About Scrappin Store.  Here are some close ups...

So guys, that's it for me, yet another quick post this week.  I  hope  I have inspired you all to dive into your stash and create!!  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the Mad About Scrappin links below.

A Little Post Christmas Inspiration

Hi all.....soooo how are you all recovering?  Did you eat too much?? I know I did!!  I hope that you all had a wonderful time and Santa bought you some awesome Scrapbooking supplies .... oops I mean pressies ;)   Today I am here to share my last Christmas project with you all and hopefully I can inspire you to create a little something for all those wonderful Christmas moments.

I have used the last of my Design team Christmas kit and created this small 4"x 4" mini album using the Sizzix Bigz Frame Die.

I have cut 5 frames from some heavy poster board to use  as the base.  I then cut 5 frames from the papers and inked up the back of the frames and stamped them all with a music background stamp.

  Well guys as usual I will let the glamour shots do the talking for me.  I have embellished the album with supplies from the Mad About Scrappin store and some fussy cuts from the paper collection.

Here are a couple of close ups of the embellies and pockets .....

Another quick post for you all today.   Please be sure to check out the links below to see what my other creative team mates have to inspire you all....

As always thanks for stopping by.  I sure do enjoy your company and till next time.

....remember to live your bliss......

Creative Inspiration - Week 52


I hope that everyone is having a super Christmas. 

Super busy here with kids going back and forth to visit and family over that I am really glad I got organised with all my scrap work in advance.

Anyways... I have played around with some more of this kit to create a layout for you.

I felt very honoured to be able to create this layout using another photo from the family at my daughters Calisthenics. This layout I have created used a photo of the father and new born son of the family. I felt very humbled to be able to create this layout.
Because this was to be a more masculine layout I have played around with a piece of base board as the base for this layout. I then used some texture paste and a wall stencil to create the base. Then it was a matter of layering gesso and three different glimmer mists till I was happy. 

I have also played around with a pile of old number stickers that I have had laying around in my stash for ages. I have coloured them all black to make them uniform in that sense and adhered them randomly. 

Once the photo was adhered onto some of the matching tags and patterned paper I then played around with a mix of wood veneer, some kraft photo corners and matching word stickers from the pack.

Finally I finished the whole layout off with a few cork stars and bordered the whole layout with some washi tape. I love the colours on this layout as it helps to focus on the subjects in the photos.

Well better get back to celebrating Xmas.

Merry Christmas all.

Christmas Candles

Hi everyone, I am back again with some more Christmas cheer to spread around.  Today I am sharing with you a couple of Christmas candles I have created using embellishments from my Mad About Scrappin December Christmas kit.  These little cuties were super quick to create and are a great table decoration.

 I have used some Hessian/Burlap ribbon as the base and adhered some strips from the Graphic 45  "Twas The Night Before Christmas". 

  To adhere the hessain or burlap to the candle I have used some of the sequins and pinned them to the "back" of the candle.  I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking now.....

Thanks so much for stopping by....  Are you  all ready for Christmas?,  I am - almost :)  I hope I have inspired you to spread some festive cheer too.   Please be sure to check out all the Mad About Scrappin links below - especially the shop to see what's new and what's on sale.

Creative Inspiration - Week 51

Hello all. 
I hope that you are all getting sorted for the festivities ahead.

Here I have been working away getting Xmas gifts sorted and getting scrap work all up to date so that I can enjoy some family time during Christmas.

This created some cute tags to jazz up some gifts for Calisthenics teachers and a card too using some more of this versatile paper range.

So here's what I have created....

So I have used some matching tags in the same paper range as a base and then built the tags up from there with a mix of patterned paper, paper Xmas doily, some digital quotes I printed onto some patterned paper from the range, some gold foil Xmas tags (the soldier), and some wood veneer stars. I have then finished the whole thing off with some bakers and garden twine. 

Super quick.. super easy but finished off the gifts nicely.

Have you managed to get some crafting done this year for Xmas ?

I love doing it as it helped get me in the mood for Xmas.

Till next week.

TFL, Michelle x
