'Happy Moments' layout designed for 49 and Market

Happy Sunday crafty friends and welcome back to my blog.

Products Used:
- Sand and Sea - Coral Reef and Down Under
- Shimmer and Shine - Blush Shardin
- Archival Board - Happy Moments
- Burlap Net Ribbon

I absolutely love these Shimmer and Shine flowers, the photos don't do them justice, you have to see them in real life.

I added a bit of white Gesso to the leaves as I wanted to tone the colour down a bit to fit the layout.

Some Burlap and cheese clots for some added texture.

Love that archival board honey comb and butterfly, so cute!

Tore around some of the Sand and Sea paper design and added as a feature in between the flower layers.

Thanks again for dropping in.

Until next time....

'Precious' layout designed for 2Crafty Chipboard an 49 and Market

Hi there again and welcome!.

I have been on a bit of a crafty roll the past few weeks and I am making the most of it as I know there will come a day where the mojo runs out for a while. 

On this layout I used some of the gorgeous new chippie from '2Crafty Chipboard'. So this chipboard layered in between the flowers is called 'Fine Floral Frame Set' and it is so gorgeous and delicate, so much fine detail, it compliments all my flower layers beautifully.

I just added some black embossing powder.

Other products used:
- Mini Word Set 2 - Precious Sentiment

Flowers from '49 and Market'
- Botanical Blends - Shadow
- Garden Seeds - Sandcastle

I used '49 and Market' stamp set by Gerry van Gent - Gerry's flower and added it to the background amongst the chipboard with some silver ink.

The backgroun paper is 'Captured Adventures' - Faded Memories.

I also added some pearl ink spray to the Blossom Blends to make them sparkle a bit.

That is it for now!

Until  next time....




'Cherish' layout designed for 49 and Market

Hi there crafty friends and welcome back to my blog!

I created this layout to mainly to showcase some of the awesome stamps '49 and Market' bring out.

I used 3 sets here:
 - Bohemian Damask
- Captured Adventures Set 2
- Gabi's Circle Stamp Set

I added some distress paint to the 'Bohemian Damask' stamp and added that to the background first for some colour.

The 'Captured Adventures' stamp was then added with black ink for a visual contrast. I generally find '49 and Market' papers are so gorgeous by them self they don't need a lot of added background texture, however stamps add so much interest especially when used to highlight other elements on your layout.

The background paper is from the 'Captured Adventures' Collection - Awakening

- Garden Seeds - Cotton
- Blossom Blends - Cotton
- Stargazers - Peach Sorbet

So I hope this layout inspired you to bring out some of your favourite '49 and Market' stamps and add them to your next layout.

Thanks for dropping in!

Till next time....

More than Words September Main Challenge

Hey everyone, I am back again and this time I decided to play along with the Main Challenge at More Than Words this month - Sunshine and Yellow.

I just love Sunshine Yellow and I knew I just had the perfect photo for this challenge. This picture just screams Sunshine, Joy and Happiness and creating this layout put a smile on my face, now I am really looking forward to Summer.

I used Papers and Flowers from my DT - 49 and Market and the Chipboard is from my DT 
2Crafty Chipboard.

49 and Market Products:
- Sweet Reflections paper - Reminiscence
- Seaside Blooms - Cotton
- Stargazers - Lemon Drop
- Tropical Paradise Laser Cuts

2Crafty Chipboard Products:
- Amelia Flower - Small
- Summer Leaf Stems 2
- Mini Words 2
- Fine Word Set 2

I added some Sunshine Yellow spray to the background. I layered some lace and cheese cloth behind  my photo to create some softness.

Just love the colour in this photo - perfect for this challenge I think and the laser cuts added a quick and easy touch to my flowers.

I added some gold touches also by using gold glitter embossing powder on the chipboard, it added some sparkle to the yellow accents.

Really happy with how this came together, combining the yellow and gold with some touches of white brings a real softness to the layout, hope you like it as well!

Thanks for dropping in.

Until next time....

49 and Market and 2Crafty Chipboard share....

Hey everyone, thank for dropping in. This weekend was a very creative on for a change, so nice to be able to sit and create without feeling guilty. I ended up making 3 layouts for both my Design Teams, 49 and Market and 2Crafty Chipboard.

'Cherish Always'

49 and Market Products:

- Sand and Sea - Seacreatures
- Stargazers - Cashmere
- Captured Adventures Set 1 - Stamp
- Gabi's Circle Stitch - Stamp

2Crafty Chipboard Products:

- Heart Clumps
- Fine Word Set
- Mini word Set 1

I painted the 2Crafty Chipboard sentiment and Heart Clump pieces and added some clear embossing powder.

The 49 and Market circle stamps were heat embossed on the background paper.

More 49 and Market stamps were added to the background.

I also used some leaves from the 49 and Market Tropical Paradise Laser Cut Sheet to add in between the Stargazer flowers.

Some pieces of lace and cheese cloth were tucked in between and underneath all the layers.

A touch of colour on and around the flowers and some gold flakes finishes it off.

That is it for now, thanks for visiting. I will be back tomorrow with another layout.

Until then......
