Australia day Sneak Peek

Dear Bloggers,
Here is a sneak peek of an Australia Day LO I created.  The photos were 'selectively recoloured' which is a digital technique where you  convert photos to black and white and selectively 'paint' the colours back in. 


To see the rest of the LO and the Step by Step instructions for selective recolouring, pop across to the Scrapbook Creations Blog.  While you are there have a browse as so many talented people have posted such amazing work and articles.

Girls on Cruise...Layouts using the Prima Optimist Range


Dear Bloggers,
It is now January 2014 and we are all full of New Year's Resolutions.  This year I want to give myself a shake up and try different styles.  My goal is to choose different artists whose work I admire and try to incorporate features of their style into my work.  Renee Iveson is my inspirational artist for these two layouts. Her spontaneous and playful style really appeals to me, especially as I feel that my work can sometimes be too prescribed and overthought..  The Prima Optimist Range is bright, fun and playful....perfect for my Renee-esque LOs. 






 Call by Renee's blog so you too can be inspired.

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday DT Reveal for 22nd January 2014

Dear Bloggers,
Thank you so much for calling by.  I always love Wednesdays as this is when Heartfelt Creations release the new work from their DT.  I am having so much fun using HC stamps and dies to make wonderful handmade flowers. Some of our friends  married recently and  I wanted to create a LO using the stunning pinks and oranges from the 'Majestic Morning Collection' offset by a stylish black background.  The warm cheerful colours really reflected the joyousness of the day.  I stamped the collage stamp onto the background black bazzill and white heat embossed it with an opaque white.  I was very impressed how the stamp created such an effective background.  Have a look for yourself.

Heartfelt Creations at CHA

Dear Bloggers,
I have been very privileged as part of the Heartfelt Creations DT to have my work displayed at CHA (Winter 2014 in LA).   Thank you all the team at Heartfelt Creations for making this possible.  Lovely Angela Turner has shared some photos of the wonderful display.  From all accounts the stand was amazing and all the flowers and projects were stunning beyond belief.'  Have a look for yourself.

Wow one of my LOs is on the left hand pillar behind the desk.......how exciting.


There is my birdhouse on the second shelf to the left.
'You Are Adorable' is on the left hand side second from the top.

'Kimba' is top centre and my two vintage LOs using the Floral Keys Collection are furthest to the right on the first and third rows.


Look at the dress form adorned with all the flowers...just gorgeous (not sure who made this one but it is just amazing).

I think I also have a card and an altered book somewhere in the display....more photos will be posted soon so hopefully they will include these items.

Well done to all involved...you did an awesome job.

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday 15th Jan 2014 DT Reveal and My second layout at CHA

Dear Bloggers,
Thank so much for calling by.  Here is my second layout that has been on display at CHA as part of Heartfelt Creations amazing January release 'Majestic Morning'. (And yes I am still pinching myself that my work is on display at CHA....I am one very lucky girl). As you all probably know by now...I love flowers and I had so much fun creating these clusters.  There is lots of fussy cutting, water colouring and hand made flowers.  I added the 'You are Loved' at the end...not sure whether I like it better with or without the title so I posted it both ways.




You make me smile

Heartfelt Creations' January Release 'Majestic Morning' and CHA

Dear Bloggers,
Heartfelt Creations have released the 'Majestic Morning Collection'  their new range for January 2014.  This is hot off the press and on display at CHA right now.  I am so excited as two of my layouts are part of the exhibition...thanks Heartfelt Creations for making this happen.  Here is one of the layouts but you have to wait for next week's Wednesday DT reveal to see the other...or visit CHA if you are lucky enough.

Newsflash: As you know the weather in certain parts of the USA is absolutely freezing. Poor Emma Lou and the HFC crowd had their plane cancelled due to the terrible conditions.  This means they will miss their first big workshop at CHA.  Fingers crossed they can get a flight out of Chicago tomorrow.....thinking of you all and sending my very best wishes.

Have a look at their great website for more wonderful work samples.
