Oh you cutie pie!

Hello all! Hope your week has been great! Cassandra here and am back today sharing a project using the July embellishment kit! It's been a super long time since I last scrapped about my baby boy and it's time! Hehe! Was playing catch with him and had a camera nearby and it was snap snap snap! Trust me, it's really difficult taking nice photos of animals! Glad I got a few nice shots!

I used the summer stamp set in the July embellishment kit and randomly stamp the cute summer images all over the page!

Guest designer: Natalie Elphinstone

Hi! My name is Natalie Elphinstone and I’m waving hello to you from down under in Melbourne, Australia. It’s a little chilly here in winter so I have the perfect excuse to stay inside and scrap. I’m the lucky wife to The Trophy Husband and blessed mum to my three Elphie Kids,  Bethany is 8, Moriah 5 and Judah is 5 months. I’m taking an extended break from my usual career as an Obstetrican and Gynaecologist to be a stay-at-home-mum and I’m loving it to bits!

You can find me on Instagram ,YouTube ,Pinterest and my blog

Layout: " Lovely day"

We had an impromptu kite-flying adventure with my extended family recently and everyone had a blast! I printed out my enlarged photo straight onto a neutral patterned paper from the Happy Things collection which adds some interest without being too overwhelming. I cut down one of the ombre tags to make my own kite embellishment.

Project Life spread “Stupidly Simple Fun”

I also wanted to make a pocket page of the day’s events so that I could include a bunch more photos, and these two projects will go side by side in my album. I love mixing it up that way!

Card “Choose Happy”

One of my favorite papers in the collection is the Ombre Mosaic and by using the 6x6” version on this card I really didn’t need to do much else but add a couple of cute embellishments.

Card “Smile”

I really can’t get enough of the ombre tags and I knew they would make a perfect base for a sentiment on a card.

Project “Dream Catcher”

When I saw the Dream Big paper the idea for making a dream catcher popped instantly into my mind. I chose an embroidery hoop as my base and stuck the paper behind it. I hung the gold tipped vellum feathers and acetate triangles from it with twine, and threaded on some pearls for good measure. This is now hanging in Moriah’s room and she absolutely loves it!

Hope I inspired you today :) Have a lovely week ahead.

Sun & Sand

Hello there! Amanda here today to share a layout I created with the July embellishment kit. 

I was so excited to get this kit in the mail along with the new Happy Things collection. I just adore that collection! You can see the first layout I created with both of these on my blog here

For my second layout I again used some paper from Happy Things and paired that with some watercolor paper. I wanted to mimic the water from my photo and did a wash of blues and greens for my background. I don't feel like this picture quite picked up the detail in it, but the effect is there ;-)

I did a little stamping and embossing with that adorable summery stamp set and created some layers with the tags, washi and embellishments. The printed wood veneers and acrylic words are just awesome!

I don't own a manual die cutter but really wanted to find some way to use the ampersand die. I ended up incorporating it into my title simply by lightly tracing around it. I love that it adds a little something without overpowering the area.

Thanks for looking! And be sure to check out the embellishment kit in the shop if you haven't already!
