October Afternoon

I am so very excited to finally be able to share with you my good news. When I received the invitation to join this amazing team of ladies, I just couldn't believe it. I've been a long time fan of OA, ever since their first release (yup I've been scrapping for that long), designing for OA has always been a dream for me. I'm very honoured to have been asked, I can't wait to get started and share my OA projects with y'all!

Two with Fancy Pants

I'm so excited to be sharing with you  my first Fancy Pants layout. When I opened my box of awesome Fancy Pants supplies the True Friends collection definitely jumped out at me. I love the colour palette mixed with fun and quirky little accents, such as a chipboard fox button. I knew it would be perfect for a wide variety of projects. 

I used the large alpha stickers to create the title, I simply traced the outline then remove the sticker. I used watercolors to fill in the letter. The triangle paper also inspired me cut out the individual triangles, I usually have a hard time incorporating triangles on projects, but this concept really worked for me. 

The rest of the layout is all about creating layers with pattern paper, diecuts, chipboard buttons and flair badge. I just love how this layout turned out to be fun and festive, perfect for documenting my daughter's second birthday!

Cheer with Jillibean Soup

Wow, it has been a quiet week on my blog, that's what happens when I'm on vacation, I don't feel like blogging! Today I'm sharing a layout I created for a tradeshow for Jillibean Soup using the new holiday collection Holly Berry. This is one stunning collection set to ship mid-September. 

To create this layout I used a mix of the diet cut, mini placemats, new glitter and kraft tape. Those little frames are ideal and love using them on my projects. I love that the colours of this collection are a mix of traditional and non traditional, this really makes for a fun and unique collection.

Jillibean Soup kinda day

Hello friends, happy weekend to everyone. I'm currently sitting in my living blogging and drinking a coffee while my youngest is watching tv, I just love starting my day like this. 

Today I am sharing a couple of projects I created for Jillibean Soup. This layout was created with the new Soup Staples collections, I love the colour palette of this collection, the geometric prints and fun patterns. The title was created with the stencils by Jillibean Soup. I love using large titles on my layouts, so I was giddy with excitement when I received this stencil.

Just recently Jill from Jillibean Soup attended a trade show in Atlanta. I was asked to create projects with the new Holly Berry collection. I was so very inspired that in less than 24hrs I created this advent calendar. All the supplies are Jillibean Soup for the exception of the white diecuts. 

I hope you have enjoyed my projects. I wanted to say hello to my new followers, thank you so much for signing up for my blog updates. Hope you like it!
