Designer Inspo ... Natalie May

Happy Sunday peeps!

I know you hear me rattle on about how much I love these kits but really...... I seriously do! 

I LOVE the way I can create an easy paper based layout one day and go for something a little arty farty the next!

This page has a couple different easy techniques on it ... let me talk you through ....

I used the Ampersand mask and some Golden Light Molding Paste on the white cardstock and allowed it to air dry. Once dry I generously sprayed the page with the Lindy's Stamp Gang mist and allowed it to run to one side before hitting it with the heat gun to dry it off.

I then used some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink with the Diamonds mask. I like to used a latex sponge when inking and masking as it's gentle and holds the ink really well!

I used a few of the arrow die cuts in the ephemera kit, covered the weekday words with patterned paper and then used the super cute Kaiser alphas to create my title

From my personal stash I added some Technique Tuesday Stamps and some Typo Stamps!

What do you think?
I'm kinda loving the fun feel this layout has got!

Head over to the shop and sign up now for the next kit ... I've heard a rumor is AWESOME!!!!

Designer Inspiration - Gina Rodgers - So You..

Morning everyone, I'm back with another page created with the current main kit..  I've gone with some earthy browns, cream and gold in the papers, die-cuts and stickers and combined with a blue, aqua and gold background.. A few scrapes of gesso on the white cardstock provides a good base for applying sprays and mists and preventing the card to warp.. 

I've finished with some random stamping..

title and of course..it's not complete without a barcode!

Happy Friday all!

Designer Inspiration - Lisa Pate. A Card for Dad.

Nothing like the last minute rush right??  I have such a bad habit of making a card as I am ready to leave the house to celebrate a birthday or in this case Fathers Day.

Sunday morning was no different.  I really should learn.

Thankfully I had my beautiful August Kit all spread over my desk.  With a coffee in hand I gathered lots of elements togther to create a quick card.

As you can see, when time is of the essence I staple EVERYTHING down!

Are you a last minute kinda girl like me???

 Happy Sunday Peeps!

Today I'm showing you another way to use the Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist that is in the August Cupcake Kit.

I love the strength in the color mist - it's bright and vibrant and really nice but for this page I wanted it a little more washed out and softer.

I used my water brush pen and tipped a little of the mist into it and then added some more water to thin it down. Test on a bit of scrap before adding to the page just to make sure your color is right!


I painted over my title and in and around the square elements on my page!

Worked a treat!


Have a great week guys and Happy Creating!

Designer Inspiration - Gina Rodgers - Love This..

Happy Friday all,  I've having a ball with the latest Main Cake kit and have created another layout featuring to gorgeous pastel colours in this kit along with some gold, mustard and brown.. This page came together quickly starting with a soft splash of pink and mint on the background, followed by a bit of layering using die cuts, papers, stickers and washi tape..

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend ahead!

Designer Inspiration - Lisa Pate. August Kit is here!

And it's so delicious.  Not that I eat paper or anything.

I cracked open my August Kit today, and sprinkled all the lovely inclusions all over my desk. SO much to work with, so many cute little "bits"

I really love the trend of layering up one edge of the page and creating a layout in this space. Time to give it a go.  It was so easy just to stick random bits along the edge then stitch and staple it all down.  No double sided tape needed.

Have you opened your kit yet????
