MESSY MONDAY - Sisters...by Anna Allan...

I am here to share a page I put together using the February Cupcake kit featuring some gorgeous Heidi Swapp papers, stickers and glittery alphas!

Ok, so I didn't exactly get really 'messy' but I did get a little fussy...with cutting that is.
I love the floral papers and decided to go with this particular paper that has flowers in the corner of the page. I lined up my photo and measured where it over-lapped the flowers. I then cut that part of the flowers so that the photo would tuck in behind them.
I used the chalk ink in the kit to create a subtle background behind the papers.
I then embellished using the stickers, alphas, sequins, flair, washi tape, and paper clip.

Absolutely adore the colours in this kit.

Thanks for looking.

Digi Store Saturday with Natalie May

Hi there
It's my turn to share a project inspired by the March Mood Board over at Lindy's Stamp Gang and I used the Main kit for this month plus some fab cut files from APOCD!.

I have scrapped a family photo taken a little while ago. 
I love this photo of us ... my immediate family is everything to me and this photo really does make my heart swell.

I have used some cut files from A Piece Of Cake Designs - I love using these for embellishments on my page ... cutting them in white cardstock allows me to color them to suit.

Here are a few of the easy steps I used to create this page.

By adding the embossing powder to the paste, when I heat set it, the beautiful shimmer came through.

This is such a simple but effective technique!

Thanks for stopping by
Have a great day

Tutorial Tuesday with Felicity

Felicity here today to share with a little step by step on what I did with the Cupcake from February.

As you would know its filled with lots of Heidi Swapp Memory planner goodies.
I thought it was very appropriate for me to start on my teal memory planner that also turned up around the same time as my kit.
Perfect timing perhaps.

Inside the front cover I put a few bits and bobs like those alphas from the kit, which are ready for me to add to my pages. This planner is one that I am using as a 'visual' diary. So it will be quick entries and lots of journaling. I guess its a bit like showcasing the highlights from the day. So this planner actually sits beside my bed. So I want a few bits and bobs there ready to add a little embellishing when I document in my planner.

 I used a fair few punches with the papers. They make really good accents throughout. 

 I created this little pocked from two sheets of paper from the kit. It allow me to pop in memorable from the month or little tags I have created ready to pop in my planner.

To make the pocket all I simply did was fold and score one piece of paper in half. Then I scored and folded a second piece of paper  and cut a diagonal. Adhere the sides with glue and wa-la!`
 The sheet of stickers in the kit, I backed on white cardstock which allowed me to then 3D them, to take away the flatness.
 I did a little machine stitching before sticking in the papers to add a bit more interest.
 I also cut little squares and embellished again with the stickers of punches.
 I added the photos which I prepared in the App 'Collection'. It has the date and allows me to type a little journaling on the photo. Makes the photo look tidy and neat in my planner.

Lastly at the end of the month I added this little envelope from Heidi swap memory planner collection. I can pop more little memorable or some hidden journaling.

Its amazing what opportunities this kit gives.
I love it!!

I hope this little tutorial helps you to think a little 'outside the square'  when you create with you kit.

Messy Monday .... Natalie May


I love that there is so much that can be created with the Cupcake kit - I have all sorts of sized scraps still floating around from last month so I whipped up this page featuring Miss Jessica and my hubby!

 I simply used strips and cuts of paper and collated them on the side before stitching around the edges!

 I used a digi cut from the February release and backed it with one of the 6x6 papers and added a Cherry Flair with cotton wrapped around it.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a great day

Friday Favourites: layout with Felicity


I have been playing this week with the February cupcake kit from APOCD. Its full of the new Heidi swap papers and embellishments.
Yes there is a bit of pink,  but there is also this really lovely mint green.
So I teamed the mint green with the a little black to create a lovely boyish page.

A few close shots to show all the layers.
