Some layouts

It is fast coming to the end of my Summer holidays. I have very much enjoyed spending time relaxing and catching up on my favourite hobbies. Watching tennis, knitting, reading and of course, scrapbooking.

Here are some layouts I have created in the last week, incorporating some ideas and products from the new catalog due out February 1st.

This first layout uses the new Lollydoodle paper pack. It is just perfect for photos of little girls - and so I used it for these darling photos of my great-niece Rylee.
This next layout uses the Sparkle and Shine Workshop on the go and my new favourite thing: Overlays cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.

And another new favourite, the background paper on this layout is the new Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment. It is a double-sided paper. On one side, the paper has a shiny pattern, in this case a chervon stripe. On the reverse side, the same pattern but in black and white. Love this paper!

I have really enjoyed re-discovering paper scrapbooking!

Cloud Nine Cardmaking kit

I pinned this card a while back on Pinterest: 

Today, I decided to try it using the Cloud Nine Cardmaking kit. I used the Lagoon paper, the printed paper and the Lagoon shimmer trim from the kit. The sentiment inside is from "You are my happy - icons and sentiments" CC1025. The tag on the front is from Casual Expressions D1525.

You can follow the tutorial of how to make this card here: Krafting Kreations

Happy New Year!

Gosh, it's been a long time since I added anything to my blog! Life gets busy sometimes.

Here's a card I made today. I wanted the Love Doily (B1418) stamp from the moment I saw it - but strangely this is the first time I have used it! I used the Tone-on-Tone technique, using the same colour ink as the paper I was stamping on. I really like this effect.

I am in the process of making a "mini-album" using the Cricut Artbooking collection and will post that when I am done.
