Couture Creations - Part 2 of catching up!

Yes, I've been busy with Couture Creations projects too. And have you seen the new Couture Creations Magnolia Lane paper and accessories range created by Sue Smyth? If not, check it out here. I'll have lots of projects created with these papers to share with you in the near future. 

Here's one of my November 2015 projects. I fell in love with these Christmas papers - they are just so elegant and romantic. All the details can be found here

And totally fantastic for fussy cutting. :)

Here are the three tags I created for my first December 2015 project. All the details to recreate these gorgeous butterfly love tags are right here

I have used the gorgeous Vintage Rose collection of papers - again, a perfect range for fussy cutting.

And I am totally hooked with those mini doily dies. They are so sweet and adorable.

Another layout created with the Vintage Rose collection. This was my second December 2015 project. Sigh...anyone would think that I was addicted to this collection, lol! All the details and instructions can be found right here

 Finally, my mini-matchbook albums. This was my January 2016 project. You can find the whole post and instructions here. Yes, it's an oldie, but done with a modern twist. :)

Thanks for stopping by today. 

I'll be back soon to share more projects and some very exciting news. :)

Cheers and happy thoughts, xxx

Imaginarium Designs - Where has the time gone?

 Life has been crazy and hectic, but it has also been good. Really good. So no, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth - I've just been busy preparing for some HUGE changes in my life - more details coming soon. Let's just say 2016 is going to be a fantastic year!!!

So, on this quiet Saturday afternoon, where I have found myself with a little time to spare, I thought I would do a post of all my recent Imaginarium Designs projects from the past few months. Oh, and in case you missed the news (click here), I am staying with the Imaginarium Designs Design Team for another year - I love this team and I'm so honoured to be able to keep representing them, and their glorious chipboard products. 

Here's a layout I did for my November 2015 theme project (Girls). You can find more details here.  

I had so much fun creating this layout. As you know, I love all things girly, feminine and pretty, so this theme was right up my alley. can never have too much pink. :)

Here's one of my December 2015 projects. You can find more details here. I've used some of my older stash of papers - need to use up the old stuff to make room for new stuff, lol! It's a never ending battle that many artists know too well. 

I even went old school and used some hessian as a frame. And I played with Prima's new mixed-media snow effect product. Lot's of fun! 

Here's my second December 2015 project - a set of Christmas cards. All the details on products and techniques can be found right here

 Did I mention that these were quick and super easy to do? 

Here's an easel card I created for a friend's 13th birthday. This was one of my January 2016 projects. You can find all the details here

The beauty of these cards is that they are more than just cards - you can turn them into beautiful pieces of artwork that can proudly be displayed in your home. 

And my second January 2016 project. All the details for this layout can be found right here

This is probably one of my most favourite recent layouts. I just adored the colours and shapes, and how it all came together. 

Thanks for stooping by and joining me. I hope you are having an awesome weekend, and that your creative mojo is flowing. 

Stay tuned because I have some big, huge and exciting news coming over the next few weeks. 

Cheers and happy crafting, xxx

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
