TN Memory Keeping Layout ~ Epic

Hi everyone,
I'm back today with my next layout in my TN memory Keeping Series.
I am working in my DIY TN Inserts.
If you are interested in making one yourself, check out my tutorial

Today is an ode to my Fitbit Adventures :)
In this layout I use mainly scrap patterned paper and layer with a acetate and washi tape.

And pepper my white space with a whole lot of stickers and puffy hearts & stars.


The puffy 'epic' expresses my emotions for my picture.

Here is my whole layout :)

To listen to the story behind my picture and to watch me make this layout, check out my process video HERE
Do you have a Fitbit? Whats your daily goal and how often do you smash it?

I love hearing from you.

TN Memory Keeping Layout - Sleep less, dream more

Hi everyone,
Just a short one from me today.
Here is another TN layout I made - about me this time.
I am working in my DIY TN Inserts.
If you are interested in making one yourself, check out my tutorial HERE
I titled it 'sleep less, dream more' because it fits my sleeping habits perfectly! I have a hard time switching off my brain because of all the things I need to do.

I also LOVE this 4" x 6" journaling that I picked up in my last haul video.
Isn't she full of confidence!!
Love her!

If you are interested in the journaling cards & die-cuts I used in this layout check it out HERE (I may have some kits still available). 
I also love the quote on this other journaling card. Be Happy. It drives. People. Crazy.

All topped up with a yellow pineapple and yellow roller skates. How fun and random is that!!



Here is the whole layout.


Thank you for stopping by.

How are you doing with your memory keeping?

Art Journal Swap - Not every house is a home

Hi everyone,
So happy to be bringing you the first layout in my new collaboration with my fellow design team member Suzanne Johnston.
Suzanne and I are doing a collaboration this year where we are working in an art journal for as long as it takes to fill it and then sending each other the finished journal at the end.
We are sending each other an envelope full of die-cuts and inspirational items as prompts for layouts.
The art journal that I am working in is one I made myself and if you are interesting in making one, please check out my DIY tutorial HERE.
From the prompts, I selected the clippings of musical paper which I reconfigured as houses.

From there, I went onto Design Seeds and picked out this color palette.

I then gathered all my acrylic paints and supplies ...


and started mixing.


I think I got pretty close to the correct colors :)

Next it was time to decide on the colors for the background and this is what I went with.


Grey and yellow is my new LOVE! What a great combination…

Memory Keeping Layout ~ All up in my head

Hi everyone,

I have been wanting to evolve my memory keeping this year and I thought I would try a new style which I am sharing with you today.
I printed 2 x pictures of my son wearing these ridiculous panda and unicorn animal heads from Kmart 


and I wanted to scrap a very fun and very colourful layout incorporating papers and die-cuts I picked up in my latest haul (check it out HERE).
I am working in my DIY TN Inserts. If you are interested in making one yourself, check out my tutorial HERE.
I loved this 3" x 4" journaling card which pretty much describes the advice I raise my boys by.

The right hand side of my double spread layout contained stamping, die-cuts and journaling.


It also has THE MORE PERFECT sentiment which I made the title of this layout.
Had to add some Converse to denote 'teenagerism'.

The left hand layout contained that journaling card and this fab 'WHAT' cut out and this cute large kitty head wearing glasses!!


I loved added all those hasht…

Scrapping Fun Kits ~ January 2018 Embellishment Kit ~ 2 TN Layouts

Hello everyone,
I'm so pleased to be featured as a guest designer for Scrapping Fun Kits this month.
Raelene, who is, Dyspraxic Organised Scrapper on YT and business owner of Scrapping Fun Kits very kindly sent me the January Embellishment Kit so I decided to do an unboxing for anyone who is interested to see what her embellishment kits are like.
You can find the unboxing HERE.
As soon as I finished my unboxing, I went ahead and made 2 travellers notebook layouts. You can see the process videos for those straight after the unboxing.
Here are some pictures of the finished layouts.
Layout 1- New Year's Eve


Can I just say how fantastic this paper background is!!

In love with this metal '2018' charm and silver and white twine.

A closer look at the laser cut chipboard element which I painted Venetian Gold.

The flair badges co-ordinate very nicely with the theme.

Love the light fireworks washi and the gold stars.


Layout 2- Make Some Memories

Loved adding the gold tassel right…

12 Gorjuss Mini Paper Clips for 2018 ~ January ~ love with all your heart

Hi everyone !
I am pleased to announce that in 2018 I will be introducing a series called "12 Mini Gorjuss Paper Clips".
Yes! Those Gorjuss Mini Stamps I have been collecting are going to be put to good use!
Following my January art journal layout (which you can find HERE) , I stayed with stamp No.11 and used the second image that I coloured in - the green and pink girl.

Next, I grabbed one of my jumbo 97mm paper clips 


and created  a canvas out of card stock to the size of 3.23" W x 8" H and folded it in half.
In this series, I still plan on using up my stash so I collected a 6"x 6" paper pad, a stamp and a die set to make a scene.



I chose this pretty script background that had green, purple and gold hexagons and stamped a mini agapanthus image using Evergreen bough.

Next, I die-cut my flower die out of green paper from matching paper purple and green paper from the paper pad and layered it up on green card stock to give it depth.




Next, I added my gorju…
