This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Seriously Awesome Mini Album - Penelope Dee - Artisan

Hello Everyone

I am on a Penelope Dee sharing frenzy, as I have not shared these projects in a while!

So today I am back with a little mini album, using the Artisan Collection.


I really love the masculine feel of this collection, with the leather elements and fabulous, earthy colouring.


I added buttons and yarn string for embelishments.


I kept the album masculine and so there are no flowers or delicate elements here! LOL

I recently brought some brushes which I have been using with my distress oxides and inks, for a much softer touch and you can see the result below. I absolutely adore my new brushes.


I plan to add some more pages to this album, time allowing!

Thanks for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit!
Have a fabulous day!

Adventure Layout - Penelope Dee PostCard Collection

Hello Everyone

This layout really took me back a few years, to before I was even married and Johann and I were still dating. That is a lifetime ago....LOL

Anyways, I used the Penelope Dee PostCard collection for this adventure layout.

We had taken a trip on the steam train from Pretoria to Cullinan and then had a picnic there for the day and then travelled back again on the train.  It was a fabulous day.

I layered up lots of fussy cut bits, from the patterned paper, behind the photo. I love the vintage envelopes, tags etc. from this collection.


I used lots of stamps to add to the postage, vintage feel.


I handmade the little blue flowers and then added touches of brown to the edges.


I still have lots of plans for the remainder of this collection but just need time to play some more.
Soon..... :-)

This was a fabulous walk down memory lane and I loved creating with these papers. They made me very nostalgic! ;-)

Have you had a walk down memory lane lately??

Have a super day!

Chin Up Buttercup Mixed Media Layout - Penelope Dee Utopia

Hello Everyone

I love the name of this collection....Utopia!!! Such a fun and fabulous collection from Penelope Dee.

I had this photo of my niece and thought that this collection would be perfect for it.


I fussy cut the artsy bits and then also cut circles for the background. I then did some water colour techniques and splashes with distress oxide. It gave a lovely and soft effect.

I also fussy cut flowers which I layered up and used for my embelishments.



I love the retro,whimsy feel! :-)

Thanks for stopping by today!
I really appreciate the visit.
Have a super day!

Free Spirit Mixed Media Layout - FabScraps Free Spirit

Hello Everybody

I am back today with a FabScraps layout, using the gorgeous and beautiful Free Spirit Collection.

This layout is of my beautiful niece. She was at the beach when this photo was taken, in the morning sunlight.


I used a palette knife and pink paint to create the splashy and artsy background.


As per usual, I also did a lot of fussy cutting for most of the leaves and some of the flowers.
The rest of the flowers were handmade from FabScraps cardstock.


I also added some more blooms to the dream catcher on the patterned paper and gave them dimension.


I love this colour combo and this collection is definitely one of my favourites.

Thanks so much for popping in today!
I really appreciate all the love and visits.

Have a fabulous day!

Be Your Charming Self - Mixed Media Layout - Penelope Dee Artisan


Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a masculine layout, using the fabulous Penelope Dee Collection, Artisan.
It is just fabulous for boy and man pages.


I used a stencil and many Penelope Dee stamps to create the background design.
I had so much fun with all the stamps and different colours and was really pleased with how it turned out.

Here's a closer look below.


I also fussy cut lots of those leather pieces and made a matting for the photo, along with some buckles and other little bits.
I also used a white gel pen to highlight the stitching.

This boy of mine is getting so tall...one of these days he will be taller than his Mom!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Have a fabulous Monday!
