For this blog hop I made a 8x8 layout using the pretty NEW "Sand and Sea" collection by 49 and Market and a whole bunch of summer dies by Cheery Lynn Designs. The picture is of our handsome son back in 2010 on our vacation is Spain we have such wonderful memories of that vacation.

Beautiful Happy Memories of Summer: 
 I had so much fun creating this layout and I used a bunch of mixed media goodies too such as sand, 3D balls, stamps, prills and ink. I really like to cut up the borders from Cheery Lynn and use them as layers on my layout.

Don't you just love that Sun & Clouds die this is the first time using it and it just makes me so happy. I also added some real shells to make my flower cluster pop more.
Sorry for the different colors in pictures my camera was acting up again. The seahorses are cut from two different dies Cheery Lynn offers. The cute little flower spray's are also handmade I will show how I made them in a tutorial really soon.

My Happy Memories Layout for ***Maja Design*** & Playing at ***More Than Words***!

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. 
I made this layout as a dt project for Maja Design...yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day's ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too....so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don't feel like I do now which is rushed...

My Happy Memories: 
I was really inspired my this months challenge at More Than Words they have a lovely theme this month. The word is "Mother"and to add flowers so I really did that using my precious Maja Design papers. I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It's totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away....because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn't work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.
Let's have a look at the picture of the challenge: 
Pretty right? First I was planing on using a picture of my mom and me but that changed when I ripped up my page out of frustration.....and today at worked that {bad day} didn't change I spilled coffee all over my work cloths ect......I really wanted to dissapear into the ground and stay there for the rest of the day. 


All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray's, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too with the text "Petit Detail" I am totally hooked on those at the moment. I used this picture because this is such a sweet picture of Kevin and I...
I have so much love in my being for my baby boy {yes he still is my baby} so my tittle of this layout says:
"My Favorite and Happy Memories of Being your Mother"



The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??


Maja Design papers used:
 Vintage Summer Basics collection: 1934 bs, 1899 bs & 1904 bs, Crea Diem collection: Den Oersattliga Tiden, Nyhavn collection: King's Square.

Other products used: 
49 and Market flowers and stamps, Petaloo flowers, Prima Marketing flowers, BoBunny crackle paste, Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, Dusty Attic Chipboards and Stencil, New designed stencil by Gabrielle Pollacco, gesso, acrylic paints, cheesecloth, mini prills and say it in crystals. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today I really hope I have inspired you a little to create something beautiful this weekend if so do enjoy yourself....have a wonderful weekend. xox

Cheeky Snapshot layout for ***The Dusty Attic***

Hello lovelies, 
Today I am sharing a masculine 12x12 layout which for me is a clean and simple layout without using any flowers.....yess me without flowers it was a real challenge I can tell you! 
The picture is of my dear hubby when he was just a cute little boy {he loves that picture NOT lol that I had to use it just to tease him} For this layout I played with some amazing 49 and Market papers & stamps. 

Cheeky Snapshot: 
 All the pretty chipboard pieces are treated with gesso and acrylic paint by Dusty Attic {those paints are the bomb for sure} there is such a lovely variation of beautiful colors that you can use them for any layout of other projects.



The word Cheeky is one of my favorite ones by Dusty Attic that word pack is amazing to use on masculine layouts for sure. I cut the largest piece of the DA1521 - Scribble Frame Set Small in two pieces and added them on two seperate parts of my layout. 




The numbers around my picture are painted with the denim blue paint and then I added some gesso with a dabber on random spots. The nuts ate painted with the grey paint and then I added some black paint to the edges.



Dusty Attic products used: 

Other products used:
Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays
49 and Market papers 
49 and Market stamps
Tim Holtz chitchat word strips 
TCW Mini Tile Mania 6x6 stencil {Gabi's design}

Thanks for the Fabulous Time Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***!

Goodmorning lovelies, 
At the moment I am totally into making Autumn cards, I don't know why maybe it's because of the pretty paper collections & dies I get to work with! 
For this card I used two new paper collections from 49 and Market named "Scents of Nature"and "Looking Through" in the last one there are these lovely fairy & mushrooms pictures that you can cut out. That got me thinking I had those cute mushroom dies that I wanted to use for a long time and it totally was a wonderful fit for this card.  

Thanks for the Fabulous Time:  
Oh how I love that B296 - Tiny Bubbles Borders die it can be used for serveral occations such as summer cards/layouts but also fall, spring and winter projects. This time I added some mixed media products like sprays by Lindy's Stamp Gang and that amazing "bubbles stamp" by 49 and Market {designed by Gabrielle Pollacco who was a guest designer at Cheery Lynn Designs some time ago}
The thanks stamp is by Joy design! The flower is made by two flowers that I have combined I wetted the flowers and wrinkled them a little en then I dried them. Underneath the flower I added the gorgeous B179 - Iris Leaves & B206 - Mini Leaf Set that I got in my latest DT pack.

I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day....

Beautiful & Magical Soul Layout for ***CraftAddiction*** & ***The Dusty Attic***.

Goodmorning lovelies,
Today I have a layout with you to share that I made for CraftAddiction and The Dusty Attic using some of their amazing products some older but some new. The papers & Flowers I used for my layout are from 49 and Market. The collections are called "Scents of Nature" & "Vintage Artistry"{my fav} and I really love this color combination I have used it twice before. The picture is of our handsome son and is an golden oldy from the year 2010 when we were on our holiday in Spain. 

Beautiful & Magical Soul:
   This layout was based on this months mood board at the Dusty Attic blog that you can find here ==> Dusty Attic Blog <== 
you can link your layout in the rightside bar we would love it if you would play along you could win a $100 shopping spree awesome right? This time I rotated the sketch 90 degrees and used a lot of beachy elements to compliment the moodboard. 


For this layout I used a whole bunch of 49 and Market stamps but also stamps from the CraftAddiction store you will find the links at the bottom of this post. Also I added a bunch of mixed media products like 3D balls in different sizes but also ruste powder, 3D sand, acrylic paints and 3D matte gel by Finnabair. 



I gessod the chipboard pieces first to later on add different acrylic paints. I distressed all the edges on my layout to give it a gruncy look and a beachy feeling. The flower clusters are treated with gesso, Lindy's Stamp Gang shimmer sprays and I added some of the 3D balls on there too.
