Everyday my Friend ... Natalie May


Hi there

Have you got your hands on the November Cupcake kit yet?
OMG!!! Totally love everything about this kit!

I created a quick and simple page today using these gorgeous Heidi Swapp papers and a few other bits from the kit!


I used the Kaiser mask and added a few pink spots to the background

 Loving the ephemera pack ... so versatile

And those Kaiser alphas are a great colour match too!


Have a great day
Nat

Friday Favourites - Felicity Wilson - Fabulous




Hello!
I am back again today to share with you a page featuring one of my favourite things from the October main kit.
the Shimelle sticker book!

I was in love with so many of the stickers that I didn't want to use them!! tee hee.



TIP: when I use stickers, I always stick them first on to cardstock, (generally white), then I cute them out. This way it allows me to move the sticker around and also add foam tape to the back of them to lift them off the page.

"Fabulous"
 

And a few close ups so can see the layers that I have created!






Hope you get to do a little creativity this weekend!
PS my November is in m studio!! I know what I am doing!!

Happy weekend! XO

Thoughtful thursday - Felicity Wilson - Cards




Hello Friends!
The silly season is almost upon us, and I cant wait. I love this time of the year, all the excitement of the 'man in red', end of school year celebrations and lots of family time. Very special time.
We have still a few birthdays in the house before the 'big day' and thank you's for teachers to hand out, so I have been spending a little time preparing more cards, so that I am ready to enjoy to the festive season.

I have used the October main kit for these little cute cards.
 
"somewhere"


"today"



Hope this inspires you today to make those cards, because nothing beats a handmade card, right?

Pretty Little Girls ....


Good morning

Natalie here on this sunny Wednesday sharing another page I created with the Main kit from October!


For this page I added a little Golden Light Modeling Paste to my white 
cardstock to give it a little dimension and a few splatters of mist as well.


I love this photo of Jessica and her friend Lillian trying on my shoes ... mind you, 
both of them nearly fit into the shoes ...


I used the alphas in the kit and coloured them with Wild Honey Distress Paint to 
match the layout a little better.


Loving the result.

Thanks for stopping by

Friday Fave - Fabulous & Seriously Cheeky

Hey guys!

Nat here sharing my fave page that I have created with the gorgeous October Main Kit!


It's super simple and super easy but I'm loving it!



I used the Doodlebug Design 'Sprinkles Vellum' and sewed it to some neutral paper from my stash (not very well mind you) and then adhered it to some dark kraft card from my stash (again with terrible sewing around the edges)



The Pebbles 'Jen Hadfield - Homemade' Paper Bag was just the right colour and I slipped the doily in and wrapped some gold washi tape and black cotton around the bag.



I used a few gold stickers from the American Crafts 'Shimelle'; Accent & Phrase Sticker Book, matted my photo in gold card and black card, added the very cute APOCD flair and I was done!
The title is a chipboard cut from Imaginarium Designs which I personally designed! 


I hope you are all having a great day.
Thanks for stopping by

WORKSPACE WEDNESDAY: Felicity Wilson - Embellishments




Hello friends!
I thought I would share with you a really quick tip with you, for how I sort my kit when I get it.
I am using the Main kit to show you.


I always place all my papers to one side in a neat pile
I then sort all my embellishments out on a white cardstock so that I can see them. I always open the packets and tip them out because I am  a person, where if its not open I don't use it. 
its then easy for me to just start creating because its all at my finger tips.
Not only that, as I am sorting through my kit I always have my notebook and pen which allows me write down any thoughts that come to mind while I am unpacking.

This process is fun and works for me!

How do you unpack your kit?
