Smile Crad for ***Craft Addiction*** and ***Cheery Lynn Designs***!

Goodmorning lovelies,
Flowers, flowers, flowers, who doesn't love flowers? Well I am a huge sucker for flowers especially when they are made with Cheery Lynn dies. I so enjoy making them myself. For today's card I used two different collections by Maja Design and two amazing dies to make the flowers on my card.  
The color palette is like my latest layout I made for Maja Design that was posted on my blog before this post if you click here => Amy's Pretty Papers <= you can see more of my work. 
For this card I used a bunch of products from the Craft Addiction webshop where I have a spot on their DT 

The color palette I used is black and white plus one, but for this card I added two colors orange and green for the leaves because in my opinion leaves are supposed to be green. I cut my B312 - Burlap Border in uneven strips to make the card more shabby chic and placed them behind my flower like I did with the leaf dies. At the end I added a pretty dot stamp and some cute feathers.

Time to Dream Layout for ***Maja Design*** and playing at ***More Than Words***!

Goodmorning lovelies,
I love my Maja Design papers so much that I find them a blessing to work with. Lately I am totally into baby layouts really don't know why the only thing I can think of that babies are so stinking cute....for this layout I wanted to highlight just one color extra besides black & white which officously is orange. I am not such a fan of that color but it reminds me of a wonderful time with our handsome son Kevin because one of his first words he said besides dad, mom and car was orange {still think that is so funny}...

Time to Dream: 
I really love the black & white sheets in the Sommartider collection I always use them when I need a black or white peice of paper to create with. Before I started creating I firstly picked out the flowers I wanted to use {sadly my last black ones that I have} the orange ones are by 49 and Market and called shimmer & shine, the black ones are by Petaloo and the white ones are by Dusty Attic like all the chipboard is too.

 With this layout I am going to enter in this months challenge at  "More Than Words" I really love this months color pallete black & white plus one mine plus one is orange as you can see above this was a real challenge for me because I find orange a hard color to scrap but because I get to work with the most amazing flowers there are in this industry it made it easy again. Here is the gorgeous mood board:
 At first I cut out the middle part of the Strandmode bs sheet and stuck the Sommarens bild bs behind it, I also did that with the sunny side sheet from the "Nyhavn collection. Then I distressed the edges of both sheets and machine stitched on the orange sheet. Then I picked out hte picture I wanted to use. I treated my chipboard pieces with gesso and rust paste because it has orange in it to finish my layout I added some sidewalk chalk {white} spray by lindy's to make it a little shabby chic. I also added some shimmer spray by the same manufactor. The last thing I added are some orange glass beads and prills....

Sweet Little Memories Layout for ***49 and Market*** & Reminder Challenge #4 Butterflies for ***Craft Addiction***!

Goodmorning Lovelies,
On this second day of Easter I would like to show you another 12x12 layout made for 49 and Market and also for the reminder of this months challenge #4 butterflies at the Craft Addiction challenge site that you can find here==> "Challenge Blog" <== 
For this layout I used two 49 and Market collections "Flower Fairies" and the beautiful NEW "Scents of Nature"collection oh how I love that collection. For this layout I totally went girly again which is right in my comfort zone. So glad my mojo is not having a break *grin*!

Sweet Little Memories: 
First I took out thet darker purple sheet and cut out the middle part to later use for matting my picture. Then I took out my Martha Steward punch to trim the middle part {light pink piece} and behind that I tuck a piece of beautiful "Tresors de Luxe"lace. The butterflies and clock are from cut out sheet from the "Heirloom Botanicals" collection. The picture I used is from Pinterest thought she is so adorable that I needed to use it.   

Later on I sprayed randomly with some inks but before that I stamped with a new stamp {designed by the amazing Gabrielle Pollacco}that I got in my last DT box from 49 and Market. Then I took out my Dutch Doobadoo Art Screens od Stars and added some paste on several spots on my layout. All the chipboard pieces I used are by Dusty Attic and treated with paste, pink acrylic paint and rusty powder/that you can also find in the store here ==> Craft Addiction Store  <== awesome stuff I am so loving it.

I love those Marianne Design Plakparels Metaal because they add so much to your work and as you know I really love to use metal on my work. The flowers are slightly inked with gesso and I sprayed a shimmer spray on the both flower clusters sadly you can't see that on the picture. I also stitched around my edges of my darker pink sheet to give it more demension. 

49 and Market products used: 
Scents of Nature: Paradise, Fly Away. Flower Fairies: Windflower, Gabi's Ethernal Clear Stamp, Gabi's Postcard from Paris Clear Stamp, Gabi's Word Clear Stamp, Vintage Shades Orchid Bouquet, Vintage Shades Orchid Blossoms, Vintage Shades Cerise Bouquet,  Vintage Shades Cerise Blossoms.

My Charming Dude Layout for ***49 and Market*** & *** The Dusty Attic!

Happy Easter lovelies,
Today I would like to show you a more gruncy masculine layout, with my handsome son on the pictures. I think he is very photogenic and sometimes he will pose for me to take some pictures {lucky me} but most of the time he will hold his hand for his face and says NO mom just let me be, very frustrated but "hey" I am not complaining at all. For this layout I used two collections Heirloom Botanicals & Vintage Artistry, and a bunch of Dusty Attic chippies. What do you think about flowers on a masculine layout? I think they look awesome on any layout but they have to be gruncy, burlap flowers right?

My Charming Dude Who I love Completely: 
First I cut off have a inch of The Report sheet from the "Vintage Artistry"collection and stitched around the edges. Then I distressed it and layered it on The Patch from the "Heirloom Botanicals"collection. But first I cut out the middle from the last sheet to use for matting my pictures and for the fishtail banner underneath my picture.

I treated all the chippies with gesso then rust paste and then added some forrest acrylic paint on some spots on the chipboard pieces. I also used two stencils with some crackle paste and my amazing lindy's stamp gang sprays for the background. I just can't NOT at metal pieces on my work so that is what I did here I added some hearts, a gear and some other metal pieces.

This layout is based on this months moodboard/sketch at "The Dusty Attic" blog, we would love for you to play along this month.....the prize is $100 worth of amazing chippies. 

For this layout I used a long title but I didn't add it in the tittle of this post because I thought it was to long but the tittle is: "My Charming Dude Who I Love Completely"! The flowers clusters are treated with some gesso and forrest acrylic paint to give it more of a gruncy look.

Mini Cogs, Crazy Stitching, Leaves #2, Wordpack #27, Page Pebbles #8, Wordpack #6, Live Beautifully...., Mini Chains, Cogs 1, Cogs Frames Set, Jumbo Cogs. Barb Wire Frames and Cyclone Wire.
