Altenew's scrapbook kit

13 January 2017
After a funny start to the year I'm back with a couple of Altenew layout. Both were made with the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook kit. I'm loving this kit more and more and I'm so curious to see what the next kit will look kit. Altenew has also released some alcohol markers. They are on their way too me and I'm so excited to test them.

On the first layout I worked with a lot of layers and focused on using the upper part of the background paper. I added petals to draw the eye towards the photo and create flow.




For the next layout I decided to work with a cut file which had from a previous project. I went with bright colours and added homemade embellishment (feathers) using one of the Altenew stamp sets.






Thanks for stopping by. See you soon ad happy scrapping.

All things old and new (Citrus Twist)

4 January 2017
Happy New Year everyone. The Christmas holidays have been very different this year. We had a lovely Christmas with our family but sadly one of my grandmothers died on the 29th. It is something I knew would happen one day but I have always put it in a drawer in the back of my mind. I am an over optimistic person and tend to see good every where and even though I know my grandparents are coming to an age where death is close I still deep down believe they'll be there forever. 

I have been lucky to have known my grandparents for so long and my grandma was the first of the 4 to leave. She nurtured my love of books and we would talk about poetry. When I was a teenager we would write each other letters. During my time at university I would pop in every week and enjoy her company. I miss her so much but know she is in a better place. She passed away peacefully in her sleep and didn't suffer. Her funeral is this Friday. We'll be able to saw goodbye.  These past few days have been a blur, trying to get things done but still my heart is aching. I thought I wouldn't be able to scrapbook but funnily enough creating has helped me work through the pain.

Today I would like to share a layout I created with my grandma in mind.

For the next layout I cut our some hearts by hand and and used those and feature on the layout.




And for this layout one I used the paper packaging from the kit to create the title. I didn't know if I really liked it but it is growing on me.

I hope to see some of you on Facebook tomorrow.

Bye for now and happy scrapping.

Citrus Twist NOVEMBER

1 December 2016
Hi there everyone.
I have a lot to share with you. It is December which means I'm creating with the December kit from Citrus Twist Kits. I still have a couple of layouts to share with the November kit. Here is a recap of the 4 that I created:


For the layout "LITTLE HIDDEN TRAIL" I decided to work with one of the patterned papers as background. I love woodgrain and it's the perfect backdrop. I added a couple of circles and ink splashes. If you scroll down you can watch the process video.






The next layout was created for Let's get Digital. If you'd like the free cut file you can find it on the Citrus Twist Facebook Fan Page or just send me an email. You can contact me via the MESSAGE box.




The last layout was made in 15 minutes. I had a couple of things prepped from the previous layouts that I didn't use and I went for a layered look.



Thanks so much for stopping by. Tomorrow I'll share some sneak peeks for Altenew with an amazing new product which will be launced next week. I'll be having a blog hop on December 7th so do pop in. There will be some awesome prizes.
I'm also preparing something special for the last week of December. Some gifts, some inspiration,... it's in the works.

Have a wonderful day and Happy Scrapping.
