Something a bit different

for me, Malinda, at least...using the JULY KIT from APOCD.

My first fun run, 8km, Mother's Day Classic, with my amazing training group buddies! What a day! Up early, rain, sun, thousands of people, hills, sweat and a whole lot of fun!!!

Loved all the BITS in the kit. Perfect for framing the pic. I don't SCRAP portrait pics often, I find them a challenge. But lately I've doing a few of these kind of STRIP layouts. Bits and pieces of PP, tags, rubons, tape around the pic.

A week until the new release from APOCD, can't wait to see the new kit!
Wonder what NEW things I can come up next month.

Inspiring a little Baking

Huge Hello Everyone!!

Hope you have all been have a fantastic week!

I know i have been enjoying work and making time to play with my kids (most important thing)
and even fitting a little time to get creative :}

I was into my July Kit again last night and whipped up this super sweet cards :}

How sweet is Hooty!...hehe i have to admit i really didn't know what i was going to do with these
felt flowers, but they make super sweet eyes for Hooty! :}

I also finished off my very homey layout...all about my LOVE for Baking :}

"Sharing a Little Cake Moment"


I was so inspired by this pattern paper and these sweet embellishment pack....

Studio Calico -Take Note 'Cubicle' Patterned Paper-                      Crate Paper - Pretty Party ' Eclectic Buttons'-

I really love the patched quilt effect i have created with this paper and a quick zip
 through the sewing machine...

Really gives that homey feel and perfect for portraying my love for Baking :}

I have had a long love affair with baking, ever since i was young!
My most fondest memories are those shared with my Mum baking, now i am so happy to share those memories with my boys :}

I really LOVE how baking some cupcakes or cookies transforms the my home, the lovely warmth from the oven... the Yummy smells of goodies baking and the loving mess in the kitchen :}

Hope i have inspired you today to create your own homey layout....or Owl card or even pop into the kitchen and whip up some cookies :}

So with the July kit, which is yummy yummy yummy I've done a few pages one of which is this one...

So for this page you will need

*October Afternoon 'Cakewalk - Sugar Stix' Patterned Paper
*Echo Park 'Sweet Day - Journal Card' Patterned Paper
*Studio Calico - Calico2 Letter Stickers
*pea pod twinery
*pink ribbon from past kit
*music button from kit
*lace or tulle
*square photo - I used a largish one

Step 1
time to do our background...paint! So just a few blobs of paint and then smeared.

Step 2
I used the EXTRA washi tape available in the shop and placed a few random length pieces around the photo. I haven't secured my photo yet just placed it so I would know where to put my tape.

Step 3
Use your tulle or lace to add dimension under your photo. You want it to be larger than your photo and not regular in shape.

Secure photo and tule using staples.

Step 4
Tie your ribbon in a half bow and place your button over part of the ribbon and twirl some twine around the button and secure all of it. I use staples for the ribbon and pritt for the button and twine.

Step 5
Take the Echo Park 'Sweet Day - Journal Card' Patterned Paper and cut out a day of the week (other side of the PP) and three other strips of paper about 7cm long and 1.5cm wide. Randomly fold the three strips as shown and place the day of the week tag on top.

Step 6:
Decide on your title. A 3 or 4 word title works best, with a main word and not too long as the last word.

Place word on photo and doodle around the letters.

Add your own bits to the page and make it yours.
Hope you like it!

Please load your pages to the APOCD FB page HERE...can't wait to see your take on my recipe.
