Stair Flowers

I just love this photo!  I caught them at the perfect moment all looking at their flowers, one on each step.  I did not plan this at all which makes it so memorable, I love it!
I used paper from the Plumeria Line of Basic Grey, I also used the co-ordinating buttons, tags, border and stickers.  I cut out some shapes with a Memory Box Die and embellished with I am Roses and Prima flowers.
I joined the Basic Grey page of the month club that my mother is running, I love the products they include and have never to this day copied the layout they give you...I just join the club for the fun new stuff!!! :)

It turned out that the Scrap'n With Flair kit for July was the same line from Basic Grey so I have really enjoyed these products and have pretty much used every piece of paper I had YAY!

Graphic 45 Box from Scrap'n With Flair

This Graphic 45 Box came in my July Kit from Scrap'n With Flair I love how it turned out.  I will admit I was a little stumped at first on what to do with the box.  That moment of challenge is why I love to be on a design teams...."I have these products in front of me..now how can I use them to make this stuff look awesome"  That is what goes through my head and usually with out real "plan" I let my creativity take over and see what I come up with.  In the words of Vicki Boutin, "sometimes happy accidents happen" but they make the best ideas!  I used mostly products from the kit with a few additions from my stash.  I also used some of the Memory Box dies I purchased from Scrap'n With Flair as well.

Inside the box is a cute accordion paper fold, and I used that to create a little mini, that when I decide who I am going  to give this to I will fill with photos and notes to that person,
I am thinking my niece Lyla might really like this!  She loves pretty things...

Treasured Friend

I am doing a swap with the Muskoka Buy and Sell girls and so I made these cards for the swap.  I used the leftovers of my Plumeria Line from my July Scrap'n with Flair kit.  Leanne still has some left so be sure to click on the link to get your kit today before they are gone.  I hope the gals in the swap like the cards, I am looking forward to getting cards in return!

She is...

Sienna is all those things... I loved this colour pallet from Color-Me-Scrappy challenge site!  This one has got to be my favourite so far!  Be sure to try these colours out and play along for prizes!  A great idea is to combine a colour pallet with a sketch site like, Sketches in Thyme, this can really make the challenge fun! 
It was a great mix of colours and totally my style.....bright!
I used core'dinations cardstock, Harmonie die cuts, brads and decorative paper.  I used a memory box die to cut the swirls that i picked up at Scrap'n With Flair online store!  The flower I made with some trim from Fabricland and some bling form Maya Road.

Art Journal Canvas

Well I was resistant at first and I don't know why...I had not tried this "art journalling" before and I was provided a prefect combination of opportunity and inspiration from my co-designers at Scrap'n With Flair (those ladies are so talented) and the Art on the Severn Art Show I help organize decided to have some committee members show their work as well.

I used the Scrap'n With Flair July Plumeria Kit and some old canvases I had kicking around!  I also used mat gel medium and gesso to get the first few layers down.  Then added some great embellies some from my stash but most of the flowers, bling, pearls, jewels and trim were from the add-on kit. Then I played with adding some colour by using inks that came in the kit and some acrylic paint.

My partner and I just bought a house so we are going to put these in our new living room!  
Happy Scrappin!

Slidey Girl - Scrap'n With Flair

Another layout using the new July Plumera Kit plus the add on kit from Scrap’n With Flair.  I am a layout girl and love to create pages and pages, Leanne has out-done herself with this fantastic kit plus the add-on kit, there is so much to work with I just love it!  I have made a fast-forward video of the creation of this layout as well.  Check that out here July Kit Layout Demo
The kit comes with a great set of papers, the colours are so versatile and the added pieces of trim, lace, pearls and bling are so much fun to work with!  I added some sewing using my sewing machine and I also used a fun technique on the chipboard letters.  By adding some colour and then adding some diamond glaze, they look like they are epoxy letters!  FUN!
And some close-ups!
The flower above is the only piece I used from my personal stash, the crinoline flower was made by my “Swap” partner.  The flower swap was organized by another one of our great DT members Elysia!  I did add the jewel from the kit to the flower to bring it all together.

I hope you enjoy this kit as much as I have so far.  If you have not bought one yet, I understand they are going FAST!  Be sure to check  back for more fun inspiration with the July Kit throughout the month of July.  As well as check out the store blog for more weekly features from some of our other amazing DT members.  Serious talent from these gals!   My blog feature here for next week, it will be a step-by-step tutorial as I decorate the Graphic 45 box that comes in the kit!
Happy Scrappin’

No Pool No Problem

 Another great palette from www.color-me-scrappy.blogspot.com check out the contest there is fun prizes to win.  Working with a colour palette is fun it really pushes you to think outside the box!  I used P&J Basic Grey paper, letters and embellishments for this page.  I also added some October Afternooon twine, Studio Callico tape and Creative Memories letters.  Great fun!  Enjoy!
