♡ Friends ♡


Welcome to my second post for this month....what a month that it has been. 
Have you stayed up to date with our blog and the projects the girls have been sharing?
We have truly 'gone all out' this month challenging ourselves with colours and styles that we don't normally create with. If you haven't seen our projects why not grab a cuppa and head back through the blog.

We have also got some gorgeous entries coming in. Be sure to check these out here on the blog or over on our Facebook page ~ some great inspiration right there!

Today I have a DOUBLE layout to share with you! It isn't often that I create double layouts but I just couldn't go past a double with the two photos that I used. I really could have put both photos onto a single layout but I would have had to reprint my photos (me being lazy)!

So, here is my layout...

Such a bright and fun page of my gorgeous friends on our 2017 Geelong trip!

I have been playing with the Ultimate Crafts "L'aquarelle Designs" paper collection this month. So not my type of paper.....!!!! However, I have loved what I have been creating with this paper collection.

One part of our challenge this month is to use a COLOUR you don't normally use or like...well purple, oranges and yellows I don't normally use.
I have started with the paper from 'L'aquarelle Designs' collection and then added some more purple with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Shaker - Polka Purple. I did this across both pages.

I then cut some colour squares from the paper collection and added them to my pages. I also splattered some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in the background in Teal and Peach.

I decided that it was all a bit bright so added some stamping to the background using my Darkroom Door French Script Background Stamp and the IndigoBlu Ledger Background Stamp. This also helps with the challenge requirement 'Use stamping somewhere on your project'

I also stamped a few IndigoBlu 'Ink Splat Butterfly' images in the corners where I had planned and ended up placing some die cut butterfly embellishments.

The cute butterfly embellishments are created using the Kaisercraft Dies and Stamps - Flutter. These are a great product - two uses in one - stamping an image and then die cutting. Love them!
I stamped onto some of the colourful papers from 'L'aquarelle Designs' collection.
Another part of the challenge ticked off...'Use die cuts on your project'

The black circle die cut silhouettes are from 'Scrap FX' - they are pretty cool!
I finished with my title using the Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic: Buzz Words ~ 'Friends' and added the final part of the title handwritten ~ 'are the Family you Choose'

The last part of the challenge completed 'Friends' in any form that you choose - photo, title, quote journalling....(I have hidden my journalling behind the photo of Jane and I 😃)

I also added some of the Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic: Buzz Words on the other half of the layout. These have been in my collection for nice to use them again!

Well, that is all from me today! I do love how this double layout turned out.
I hope that you are putting the final touches on your little project to enter in our challenge for the chance to win a fantastic prize from Scrapbookit! You've got to be in it to win it.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!
