WW1 - Design Team Member

Some exciting news to share, I am now on the Design Team for
"White with 1". This is a great honour and I am so excited. I love doing
their monthly challenges.
WW1 pushes your creativity to design layouts using
only White as your base plus one other colour or element.
December being the month of Christmas, our first DT Challenge was
to create a layout a


Because christmas papers come in so many gorgeous colours and design
we had to use a Christmas range of papers -  and we had to choose papers
that inspire you.
I chose the Kaisercraft ,  "Dec 25th Collection", these papers are
so vintage with rich burgundy, green and gold.
I also loved lace and ribbons so I had to incorporate them in the layout.
The image of Santa is from "Meg's Garden".
And the chipboard flourish is from "Imaginarium Designs" chipboard
which I embossed and inked.
check out the other design teams layouts.... they are just some amazing and
inspiring creations here


Christmas Joy -  inspired by Kaisercraft "Dec25th Collection" Papers

Thanks for looking,...... I hope that this inspires you....

Bye for now

Vintage Summer by the Sea

Meg's Garden Design Team  Challenge - Create projects using the theme "Summer"
Since I love vintage, I decided to do "Vintage Summer by the Sea"
Check out Meg's Garden Blog here http://megsgardenblog.blogspot.com/
for all the other design team members projects.
I created 4 items.
The first is a "Triptych". You may ask, What is that?????
A "triptych" is a work of art divided into 3 sections, it was used very often in the 17th & 18th century.
I used Kaisercraft bay window MDF panels as the base and painted it and decorated it with Meg's Garden papers, collage images and embellishments.
The only items not from meg's garden was the muslim and shells.
I call this project " Vintage Summer by the Sea".
It is self standing project. The panels are attached with raffia, to give it that summer feel.
I loved the little bottle of sand, can you find it the middle panel???, it adds just a touch of summer.

I loved all the little embellishments from Meg's Garden, the sea charms and
bottle of sand, raffia, fibres, flowers and ribbons.
I also love the german scrap for corners of the photos.
Go check out Meg's Garden website here: http://megsgarden.com/
on all the range of embellishments she has to offer.

The next item I made was a layout called -  "Vintage Summer Days".
Vintage Summer Days

The next project is an easel card -  "Vintage Summer Babies".

And my last project I created is a "Vintage Summer Photo album"


I had so much fun creating these projects. A list of all the products  I used to create
everyone of my "Vintage Summer Collection" are on "Meg's Garden" blog.
