No Greater Love...

Taking a few moments to share another layout from Imaginarium Designs. I created this layout for my November project, and you can find more photos and details on the Imaginarium Designs blog. Here

I had a wonderful time creating this layout, playing with different coloured Inka-Gold's. The texture and shimmer is just amazing.  

For my background, I used a mixture of different spray mists (Tattered Angels Glimmermist and Heidi Swapp Colour Shine). It's amazing what happens when you spray those mists with a little water. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you are having a wonderful day.
Cheers and hugs, xxx

Odd One Out...

Time for another share. :) This layout is from October, 

Since I don't have "boys", I went with the next best thing - my rabbit, Mr Lamington. :)
Isn't he a cutie!!! 

I've used some of the new release chipboard designs, and teamed it with lots of oranges, golds, and blues. And finished off with lots of stars and Swiss crosses.  

Thanks for stopping by. :)
I hope your weekend is as awesome as mine.

Cheers and hugs, xxx

Playing Catch-Up...

I am so far behind on my blogging and sharing, and to make matters worse, Christmas is just around the corner, and then it will be the start of a new year. I don't think I'm ready, lol!

So, before I lose this year all together, let's play catch-up on a few blog posts. Today's post is a share from October. I created two projects for my Imaginarium Designs October post. For more photos, and details on how I created these projects, please visit the Imaginarium Designs blog, right here

I'm becoming addicted to mini-canvases. These are so easy to make, and they make a beautiful statement with colour and texture. 

Lots of chipboard, metals, glitter and sparkles. 

A quick and simple card. Elegant and feminine, and perfect to give to a friend. 

Thanks for stopping by and joining me. 
I hope you have had an awesome weekend 
(I did - it was my birthday and we went to the Bird In Hand winery for lunch!!!). 

Cheers and hugs, xxx

What Can I Do With A Pringles Can?

Have you missed me?
I am finally back, after a long, and much needed break. 
Lots of things have changed in my life since I last shared a post (my partner and I have separated), but everything is good, and I am truly happy and content. 

So, I am going to start with a long over due post, sharing three projects I created for the Australian Scrapbooking Ideas magazine, more than 6 months ago. Unfortunately, this magazine is no longer in circulation, and the issue with these projects is no longer available. 

The theme was to create projects using Pringle cans. After a quick look on Pinterest, I realised the trick was going to be choosing just 3 projects. There are so many things that can be made with Pringle cans - who would have known!!!

This project was created by cutting a Pringle can down and using a stencil and texture paste to create a "brick-like appearance on the outside of the wishing well. I then used chipboard to create the cover of the well, punched strips of paper for the shingles, and a die cut fence to wrap around the bottom of the well. 

Next up where these three cute Christmas decorations. Forgive me for the slightly unclear images, but the glitter inside the decorations decided to stick to the plastic cover. It was one of those lessons where you learn the hard way, lol! (Note to self - next time use Epsom salts). :)

And finally, I created a jar for my girls to keep all their hair ties in. I am so sick of finding hair ties all over my house. Let's home this solution works!!!

Thanks for stopping by. I have missed all my blog followers and friends, and I hope to bring you lots of new projects and inspiration in the near future.

Cheers and hugs, xxx

Kraft Plus May Guest Designer...

This month, Imaginarium Designs are one of the proud sponsors for the Kraft + challenge blog. So, a couple of the ID designers (me included) have joined forces with Kraft+ as guest designers for the May challenge. 

If you would like to play, and join in the fun, just check out the Kraft+ blog for all the details.

I loved the colours, textures and details of the May challenge. While they are not colours that I would traditionally choose for myself, I still found them beautiful to work with. I think orange might be my new favourite colour.

Can you see that? I did sequins! :) Yeah, I have orange sequins, and I'm in love with them. 

And beads. Yes, I used those too. :) Sooooo much fun.

And I got to play with my Pan Pastels to create my background. And I threw in some wire, flowers, and sparkles, just for fun. :)

Here's the gorgeous mood board that I used for my inspiration.
So, are you going to give it a shot?

Thanks for stopping by today.
