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.

Fathers Day Cards - Penelope Dee Wanderlust

Hello Everyone

Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers out there today, wishing you all a blessed and super day! ;-)
I spent the day with my family and it was great to sit around the fireplace, have some lunch and just enjoy each others company! ;-)

I created some cards for the men in our family, using the Wanderlust Collection from Penelope Dee, along with a few bits from Go See Do and the Maestro Collection.

Here's the first one.


I went a bit rusty and grungy on all 3 cards and really love the result.
I played with Infusions from Paperartsy too....I love these little sprinkles! ;-)


Here's the second one.


And a closer look...


Lastly, the 3rd card.


Here's the close-up.


On all these cards I used chippies, metal bits and charms, washers, embossing powders, 3D powders, 3D balls, Infusions and gel medium.
I can't tell you how much fun it was to play! ;-)

I really love this collection from Penelope Dee and I really love the Infusions from Paperartsy. They are my new favourite sprinkles! ;-)

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
I hope you had a fabulous day!

Cheers for now

Mr & Mrs Mixed Media Layout - Class - BoBunny Only You

Hello Everyone

I was super busy last week.  My son was busy with exams, work was busy, I was trying to get DT projects finished and I was also preparing for a class, that happened this past weekend!
It was one of the busiest weeks ever! Thank goodness I survived! LOL

So sorry for being missing in action!

So here was the double page that I did and this was also the class page!
South Africans are still very much double pagers...so this was the first double page I have done in quite a number of years! ;-)


I used the Only You collection from BoBunny, along with Celebr8 chippies and flowers.
Some new products used were also Nuvo mousse, sequins and confetti.

We really did have a super class and a good time was had by all! ;-)

It was good to meet new people and also share creativity and learn new tips and tricks!

I wish you a really good Monday and hope you have a super week!
Cheers for now!

Treasured Memories - Rosalee Collection Penelope Dee

Hello Everyone

Today I have a layout to share with you, using the gorgeous and beautiful Rosalee Collection from Penelope Dee.


I used these papers by layering them and fussy cutting them. These papers are so so gorgeous!
I really wanted to get the best use out of them.


I coloured the chippies with distress oxides and love how they came out.


There are just so many gorgeous bits on these papers, that it was really hard to decide which one's I should use! ;-)

This photo is of my cousins daughter, on her wedding day! Sadly I could not attend, but the photo was just beautiful and so I wanted to document it and use these beautiful papers, along with it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a gorgeous day!

I love Coffee the Daily Grind Layout - CSI Case File 255 FabScraps

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a super weekend! ;-)

FabScraps is sponsoring CSI this month and so I was asked to create a page for the new Case File.


EVIDENCE
  • solid white background
  • scallops
  • stripes
  • hearts
  • dots
  • rhinestones
  • ribbons/bows
  • circles
  • donut (or other food accents)
  • decorative border
  • seal or other animal
  • glitter
  • stars/starburst/ asterisk
  • texture paste
  • heat embossing
  • people embellishments
  • crown
  • mimic the sprinkles on the donuts
TESTIMONY (JOURNALING IDEAS)
  • Topic: Document something about food or a meal.
  • Prompt Idea: Get inspired at Three Word Wednesday (inspired by the 3 donuts in the air). Be sure to scroll down or use the archives to get the words. 
  • Presentation: Add your journaling to a circular journaling spot or tag.
  • Writing Format: Write a haiku (inspired by the 3 donuts in the air).
  • Inspiration Words: sparkle, playful, juggle
THE SCHEME
  • 86.144.158 – teal
  • 185.226.212 – pale turquoise
  • 255.255.255 – bright white
  • 211.149.174 – pinkish purple
  • 90.75.108 – dark violet

So for the evidence, this is what I used:
Solid White Background
Stripes
People Embelishments

Testimony: I documented about food or a meal - I documented about coffee and a Chelsea bun.

And lastly, I used all the colours.

So here's my page.


I used FabScraps paper and chippies, along various stamps, diecuts and I also used a FabScraps stencil on the background.


I handmade the purple flowers from cardstock, using the gorgeous Sizzix diecut set, small tattered florals.


Journalling:
There is nothing better, than a cup of coffee and a Chelsea Bun.
Coffee is a daily...a few times daily and the Chelsea an added bonus, every now and then!
Coffee starts the day and the coffee aroma, as one makes it, just signals the start of the day and indicates that I have to get my butt into gear and get ready for the day ahead.
Coffee is also the inbetweener, when I need a little break at work and I can take 10 mins to go off to the kitchen and have a change of scenery and perhaps a little chat.
Coffee is also sometimes the last action for the day, where I can reflect on the day gone past and it warm my tummy before I get into bed!
It is pure medicine for the soul!

Perhaps you can play along this month! ;-)
Pop over here for all the details.

Anyways, hope you have a fabulous day!
I am just about to go and have another cup of the medicine brew!!! ;-)

Cheers for now!

Adore Tag - Penelope Dee - Rosalee Collection

Hello Everyone

Where is this year going?
The time just seems to be flying by! ;-)

I have a mixed media tag to share with you today, using the fabulous and pretty Rosalee Collection from Penelope Dee.


I used the cut offs on the 12x12 papers to create the background and then added some gesso stencilling and crackle stamping.

I also did quite a bit if fussy cutting and layered these pieces up, with some gorgeous chipboard.

And lastly, I added a guinea fowl feather! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! ;-)
I really appreciate the love! ;-)
Have a fabulous day!
