'Winter Wishes'

Good evening girls....I hope everyone is staying warm and cosy :) I've been playing with my
'Scraps of Elegance' 'Christmas Cheer' kit again and this is what I created last night.

'Winter Wishes'

How pretty is this Blue Fern Studio paper? I love the colors and the criss cross design. I used a lot from the kit, the 'Vintage Christmas' papers that I tore up to build up my layers, the 'Sweet Peppermint' journaling cards, Prima flowers from the Floral Add On, and the Prima 'Sweet Peppermint' stamp.

I think my shabby chic pages are my still my favourite, although I have to add lots 
of messy inks to every page, it's just my 'thing' :)

You can find our kits to purchase here,
and don't forget we have a fantastic Facebook group here,
where we love to see everyone's work with our kits.

Our new kits are shipping this week, so I'll be back soon with some more inspiration for you,
Big hugs,

'Believe' a new layout for Scraps of Elegance

Hello girls, I'm back to share another layout I created with the Scraps of Elegance kit
'Christmas Cheer' in green and gold.


Lots of beautiful Blue Fern Studios papers in this kit, I love how thick their papers are,
it can take a lot of mixed media and still hold up great. There are a lot of yummy layers to
this page with some ripped papers, chipboards that I embossed in gold
and some of the cotton lace that came in the kit.

To find out how to purchase our kits, please go here.
And don't forget to check out our blog here, to see how the designers create 
with each kit.

I would like to enter my page in a challenge called 'Silver & Gold'
on the blog 'Evolution Scrap'. I was inspired by all the gold glitter,
the festive wreath, and the wood pieces in the moodboard, so I added some pine cones,
a little piece of tree, and a few little pieces of moss.

More on this challenge here.

This is a 13 arts chipboard title that I covered in gold glitter. 
It's such a pity that I can't seem to get my photos to reflect how sparkly
this page is, there's a lot of shimmering gold ink, glitter, and little bits 
of some Christmas decorations all tucked in there.

I treated myself to some of those Prima Memory Hardware pearls that come in a tin in the prettiest colors, aren't they gorgeous? A perfect touch together with my favourite part of this kit, 
the tiny jingle bells.

Thanks for looking!
Stay warm,

'Magic' a new canvas for 13 arts

Hello my lovely friends...I'm back to share with you a canvas I made for 13 arts 
inspired by the amazing new moodboard designed by our Natalya Loi.


As I was staring at Natalya's fun glittery photos I saw this canvas in my mind, with a
deep black background and some pink glittery hearts, and this is what happened.
I messily spread some 13 arts black gesso on a small canvas, then used some 13 arts modeling 
paste through a few stencils, and then added some beautiful 13 arts inks in pink and gold.

Here is our new challenge...

More on the challenge here, I hope you join in the fun!
There is always a great prize to be won!
Also...did you see the 13 arts Design Team callout? 
You can see more info on that post here.

Here are some closies:

I altered a pretty 2 Crafty Chipboard heart piece and a snowflake by applying 
some 13 arts Pink Metallic paint, and then sprinkled on some 13 arts Pink Glitter, 
love how it turned out.

Thanks for looking,

More Christmas tags....

Hi girls! I'm back with another set of Christmas tags...this time in pink.
These are my last creations for 2 Crafty Chipboard using some yummy chippies
that I have grown to love.

'Tidings of Comfort and Joy'

I started with some Kaisercraft paper glued to some chipboard tags and then added some 13 arts pink spray and some stamping with a set of Christmas stamps I found buried in my ever-growing stash.
Then I layered on some 2 Crafty chipboard pieces that I embossed in sparkly light pink embossing powder, some flowers and a few little pinecones (my favourite little addition lately).

I have really enjoyed being on this team and will miss all the sweet girls whose work
I have admired for the past year and a half.
For a stocklist of where to buy 2 Crafty please go here,
and don't forget to check out the 2 Crafty blog here,
lot's of girls do tutorials of how they alter chipboard and there's
loads of inspiration to be found.

My tree is still up...I've decided to leave it up until Epiphany, no one in my house wants Christmas
to be over...wishing you a lovely day,

'Forever....('til death do us part)...a new layout for 13 arts

Hi friends, I hope you are all doing well and relaxing, still enjoying the holidays:)
I've been playing with the 'His & Hers' 13 arts collection again, and I was inspired by the 
rich, warm tones in these papers, especially the deep reds, and I was moved to create something
dark and mysterious.

'Forever....('til death do us part)'

I carefully tore up and fussy cut a piece of the paper 'A Piece of Her' so that I had a nice long strip of those beautiful red roses which I glued down the middle. I also glued down the other piece of that same paper I had tore and I love how it made an interesting way to layer the papers up and let that beautiful dark butterfly paper show through.

I created my background by covering the whole page with 13 arts clear gesso to seal the paper and then I used some Rainbow Watercolor Duo in brown and some 13 arts ink in 'Woodbine' to add some color. Then I layered on a few pieces of antique black lace, some Prima flowers, and some little pinecones.

I had been seeing some different girls work with some really cool what looked like
threads? and I finally figured out what it is! It's called 'sisal' and after looking in several
craft stores I finally found a big bag in the floral section of Hobby Lobby. I added some to my 
page and I love the look it gave, I might try to spray some with black ink too :)

For a full list of 13 arts products used on this page, please check out my blog post here.
And don't forget to check out the 13 arts online store here.

Thanks for dropping by,
Hugs, Lisa xo

'Traditions' a new layout for Scraps of Elegance

Hello my lovelies...
Confession many of you whilst enjoying all the family gatherings 
and festivities are secretly plotting how you can slip away to your craft table?
I've had such a wonderful Christmas with my family....
 but, knowing I had the brand new Scraps of Elegance 'Christmas Cheer' kit sitting on my desk,
made me want to go and get messy with some papers and inks. I got in a little bit of quiet time 
last night and then woke up super early this morning and finally finished my first page with this amazing kit.


Lots of gorgeous Blue Fern Studios in this kit, beautiful papers called 'Vintage Christmas Collection' and some lovely wintery chipboards that I painted white and then embossed in silver. The finishing touch was some Blue Fern Studios 'Christmas Blooms' from the floral add on.
It's our little Christmas tradition to get our portrait taken together :)

Here is the new kit...

You can find our online store here, the kits sell out super fast!
And don't forget to stop by our blog here, where you can find lots of beautiful
creations created with our kits.

Here are a few closies:

I've used some 13 arts products on this page too, a stencil for some snowflakes
and some Ayeeda inks in Gold and Scarlett.

So I have some wonderful news...I have been invited to stay on the Scraps
of Elegance design team for 2017! I am so excited to be part of this wonderful and talented
group of ladies. You can see the new team blog post here.
My favourite day of the month is the day I see the big box of goodies on my 
doorstep..I just know it's packed with such pretty papers, flowers,
and so much more. Thanks so much Melinda for believing in me :)

I used so much from this kit, the papers, the chipboards, the pretty Prima stamp
from the 'Sweet Peppermint' collection, and the adorable tiny silver jingle bells.

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays and get a little bit of time to create something 
special and sparkly......just for you.
Here's looking to another great year of (hopefully!) inspiring you with these beautiful 
kits that I love so much.
