'Life Documented' my Guest Spot at 7 Dots Studio

Hello my crafty peeps!
Do you love 7 Dots Studio as much as I do?
I always look forward to playing around with each collection,
and this 'Hazy Days' is by far my favourite.

'Life Documented'

I won the January challenge a while back and they invited me to Guest Design,
and this is what I created using the over the top gorgeous moodboard....I love
this color combo, the warm golden yellows and oranges play so beautifully
of off the cool blues.....

Here is the moodboard:

You can find more information on this challenge here,
and you can see my post here.

Here are a few details:

I took this photo on my way to work at dawn one morning, and I was saving 
it for something special, I knew the colors were perfect for this page.
I used 7 Dots Studio papers and tags, some 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces,
the film strip and title, some Lindy's Sprays and some Prima flowers, and buttons.

I hope I have inspired you a little...
hugs, Lisa xo

'Make a wish....' a new layout for Mixed Media & Art

Hellloooo! my crafty friends, how are you all?
It's been a while since I shared on my blog...
but I'm back with a page created with the beautiful moodboard 
from Mixed Media & Art.

'Make a wish....'

Every single time I see one of our moodboards,  I fall in love; the colors,
textures and the photos always start wheels turning in my head. This month's moodboard 
has so many cool elements, and I added some vintage ephemera on my background, some
feathers, and I found a cute (never used) bumble bee stamp in my stash, time to break it out!
It added the perfect touch :)

Here is our moodboard for this month:

For more information on how to join our challenge, please go here.
I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful art project, 
there is so much beautiful and creative work on this blog, 
so many talented girls! I am just floored by the original, gorgeous 
work by my team mates. If you're even thinking about joining us,
pop over to the blog to get inspired!

Here are a few close ups:

I realized creating this page that I rarely use yellow, but I found 
a golden Lindy's Spray in my stash and I love the bright happy feel 
it brings offset by a touch of purple watercolor.

I also used some 2 Crafty Chipboard here, a swirly title, a dandelion,
 and the filmstrip in my background.
Thanks for looking!

'Inhale the future, exhale the past'

Hello crafty peeps!
It's raining cats and dogs outside so it looks like another crafty 
day for me...what are your plans?
I am back to share my third layout designed with the beautiful January
kit from International Scrapbook Garden, 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'Inhale the future...exhale the past....'

I have to say I adore 7 Dots Studio papers, and I was so happy to see the latest
collection in the January kit! I love all the possibilities with their collections,
sometimes a neutral background, like with this paper - it lets bright colors really shine -
or other times, the depth to the patterns really inspire me.
Here I wanted to let the colors of this kit really pop with purple, teal and pink.

Here is this months main kit and bonus kits:

You can check out our blog here for lots of ways to get inspired how to
use our kits, and you can visit the store here, for more info on how to purchase.

Here are a few close ups:

'Truth keeper'

Hello friends :) I'm back with a page I designed for Mixed Media & Art.
I fell in love with the January moodboard at Lindy's Stamp Gang, so 
I bought the Limited Edition spray set featuring peach, copper and blues,
and this is what I created...

'Truth keeper'

I didn't follow the moodboard this month at Mixed Media & Art, although it was beautiful
as always. I built up a lot of layers under my photo using some vintage ephemera, some chipboard
that I embossed in copper, and of course splashed around a lot of the beautiful 
sprays... 7 Dots Studio papers from the 
'Dreamscapes' collection help me create my wintery scene.

I would like to enter my layout in the January challenge:

I used the January Spray set:

This set includes:

Here are a few close ups:

I love Lindy's sprays, the colors seem magical to me.... they're so unique, and
I adore how they shimmer and shine.

Thanks for looking!

'Frosted Trees' for The International Scrapbook Garden

Hello my lovelies! 
I'm back with my second layout created with the January kit from 
The International Scrapbook Garden called 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'Frosted Trees'

Aren't these 7 Dots Studios papers so yummy? I love them! I thought this paper
made the perfect backdrop to splash around some super vibrant colors, and the teal
and fuchsia colors in this kit go so well together. I created my background
using the stencil and the stamp from the kit and then added the Shimmerz spray
and some watercolors.

I followed a sketch from one of my favourite blogs, Ecopaper.
I have followed this blog for a while now, and this sketch was perfect.
Ecopaper has some beautiful papers and dies that I would love to play with:)

Here is the sketch:

For more info on this challenge go here.
And for more info on how to buy this beautiful kit, please visit 
The International Scrapbook Garden online store here.

Here are a few close ups:

I've never had any of the Prima Fluid Chalk edgers before, and I was surprised
at how smooth and rich the pigments were as I applied them to some
vintage ephemera pieces, beautiful! I think adding those colors added a lot
of depth to my layers and kind of tied everything together.

Here is a list of all the products I used from the Main kit, and all the add ons:

7 Dots Studio paper 'Frayed Knot'
13arts paper 'Freedom'
Prima Stencil
Kaisercraft stamp P.S. I love You
Shimmerz 'Grape Escape' Spray
Prima Fluid Chalk Pink
Prima Fluid Chalk Green

'We are all dreamers' a new kit by The International Scrap Garden

Hi there! Great news!
I've been invited to be a designer at the new scrapbook kit club
called The International Scrapbook Garden, and this is my very first layout using
the beautiful January kit called 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'we are all dreamers...'

There are two new kits that come out each month; one called The Garden kit that
seems more shabby and feminine, these are the kits I will be designing with, and another set
of kits called The Tool Shed, which are a little bit more masculine and grungy...
both January kits are so wonderful and full of my favourite brands.
I was so pleased when I tore open my box a few days ago, two gorgeous paper
collections, 'Art Journey' by 13 arts (which I used for this page) and 'Northern Lights' 
by 7 Dots Studio (I was longing for these papers since the first day I saw them),
and so many beautiful flowers, chipboards, stamps, embellishments
and mediums, I was floored by how many goodies were in that box and
how well everything fit together.

Here is the main January Garden kit:

And then there are some beautiful add ons to the Main Kit,
absolutely chock full of wonderful mediums, flowers and chipboard:

Here are a few close ups:

I love to tear papers up to create some interesting layers, here I glued down another 13 arts paper
on top and then added some stenciling with 13 arts modeling paste and then added the Shimmerz
spray, some stamping and some flowers from the main kit.

Here is a list of all the products I used from January kit and add ons:

13 arts paper 'Travel'
13 arts paper 'Freedom'
Kaisercraft Stamp 'P.S. I love you'
Prima Stencil
Shimmerz Spray 'Grape Escape'
Petaloo Various flowers from Main Kit
