Keep Calm and Smile On

Good morning Everyone,

Happy International Scrapbooking Day!
I'm here to share with you on this lovely Saturday morning!  
I have heard that there is a significant weather front heading our way, please stay safe everyone.

This month Jo has set our challenge...'Things with wings"
Your project, whether it is a layout, card or OTP is to have some reference to things with wings.
Here is a little prompt that might give you some ideas...


My layout features the gorgeous Simple Stories collection, Vintage Bliss. It is such a sweet collection and could be used for so many projects from cards, to Project Life style pages, OTP projects and even for your journal.

Here is what I have come up with...


In my challenge kit I was also lucky enough to receive the gorgeous IndigoBlu - Flutterby stamp which solved the things with wings requirement for this project.
Whilst putting this layout together I decided that I didn't want the stamp to be too dominant so I actually used an older Kaisercraft Black Ink to do my stamping.
I love how it is a softer stamped image...really compliments the paper collection.



I have cut some of the butterflies from the paper collection and have used one of them as a stencil to create my cardstock butterfly. I have used Scrap Dots so that they pop a little off the page.




How gorgeous is that frame around the photo? I just love how it turned out.
It is a WOW Chipboard frame. I have sprayed it with KaiserMist - Winter Grey & a slight touch of Turquoise and have then used the gorgeous Colour Blast - Embossing Powder - Snow White.
OMG...I love the gorgeous shimmer and glitter BUT it was a messy process - who cares when it turns out like that I say...it is all part of the fun! (I apologise if it is hard to see in the photo)
I only used one layer of embossing powder as I wanted it to be a fine shimmer...you could always use several layers of embossing powder to give a more striking effect.


I must say that I am really loving Colour Blast products at the moment, they are amazing! If you haven't had a chance to give them a go make sure you grab some from Scrapbookit - you will love them!

Products used in my project...
Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss paper collection; Kaisercraft Black Ink; Kaisercard - Sea Breeze, White and Elephant Ears; KaiserMists - Turquoise and Winter Grey; Kaiser Paper Blooms - White; SP Washi Tape; IndigoBlu - Flutterby stamp; Colour Blast - Embossing Powder - Snow White; doily; WOW Chipboard Frame, Embossed Cardstock

Well that is all from me today. I hope that you have found something in my project to inspire your next project, which I am hoping will be your entry to our challenge.
Look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Before I go, I want to wish all of the Mothers reading this post a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope you all have a wonderful day and are spoilt by those that love you.
