latest echo park

after a wonderful session with Tim Holtz last weekend i felt inspired to use the new Ranger's perfect pearls today. i used sketch 233 from pencilline sketches. i used the latest echo park range with black bazzil and awesome flocked alphas which we unpacked today. i wasn't sure i would ever use these pics as they are 'every day' pics, which aren't great but completely depict Morgan's little quirks! the colours in the pictures so nicely matched with the Echo Park range, 'be mine'. i used the journal card, script polka dot and love letters papers.

i sprayed the black bazzil with perfect pearls - inference red under the title area and bottom left hand corner where there was a blank space. remember when spraying your perfect pearls you must stand at a distance and spray as a mist, rather add later as you can't take away if you spray too much.

the patterned papers were heavily distressed with my heidi swapp distresser and the photos were sanded. 2 of my favourite techniques at the moment are distressing and sanding, a girl can't live without those guys!

journaling tags above the photo and bottom right on the page capture the date and story of her little quirks.

pop on over to pencil lines and give the sketch a go

happy scrappin'

need a title

i do many layouts, without titles and have many ideas of title i'd like to do - but my biggest problem is putting the title on the page. and why is that, why don't i find the title i'm looking for?

well, i think it is mostly to do with not having the right colour or 'feel' of the stickers to go with my layout. i know in my mind what i would like - but can't always find it. but now i have the cricut machine and i am sure i'll be putting those layouts onto many a unfinished pages!

but this page is different, this layout is about the picture and i just love the look Morgan is giving me here. what i don't know is what to call it!

i heavily distressed the edges of the bazzil paper. used prima flower packaging to frame my picture and made a tag to go behind the photo where i have written a note to her, tellling her how much i love her.

the flowers and bling are all from prima. i don't always leave so much space on my layouts and its quite a differnt look for me - must say its a look i like!

any ideas for a title??

Mini album class

every month we are offering a mini album. each is different in design, size and papers. the ladies are really enjoying the class and the class has been sold out for the past 2 months. we are so excited to see what the new year will bring - more techniques, more albums, more scrapbooking, more fun

live, laugh, scrap - my 2011 motto!

gill has been preparing the monthly album and here is an example of last month's kit. the album is made from envelopes and although this has a Christmas theme, you can adapt it to be any album you choose! i made 3 of these albums for Christmas gifts for family oversees, what a stunning present for people we don't see all the time, but are so important to us.

gill has used the bo bunny christmas 2010 range . the gorgeous purples, greens and blues makes for a non-traditional album

here is my take on the album:

much love

Kaisercraft Candy Lane layout

Happy New Year bloggers! I hope it was a merry and safe time for you all. What a special time of the year it is, when we celebrate our dear Lord's birthday. What that means for us is eternal life and it gets me thinking of all that I am thankful for. Blessings are meant to be counted, but we so often forget the small things in our lives. I hope that you are able to appreciate the small blessings you have in your life.

My little princess celebrated her 1st birthday in June, and I've been waiting for the right paper to do her layout. And here it is! Kaisercrafts' Candy Lane, the pink and greens are perfect along with the cupcakes. I like the way it came out, what do you think?

I cut out the flowers and cupcakes for embellishments and added a few blings. I'm loving these bling gems - they are so awesome, just brighten any page.

Thank you for stopping by, happy scrappin'

Love Zoe
