Sketch #110 and #112


I felt the challenge this week, she used the elements that were in the
sketch, but used the envelope as another area to add embellishments and text.
The photo she used was a little over sized for the sketch, but stretched it
to fit the sketch.. and what a great result!!



This sketch was quite easily converted to Renee’s chosen size. The washi tape
was added in the middle to add some contrast and break up the pattern paper. I used the washi instead of the
tags up the corner, because they made the smaller size unbalanced.

Inspired blueprints – Sketch release #106

Wow, what a whirlwind, with the very first sketch release.. #106 lends itself to use in many ways, my conversion to 8.5 by 11 needed the photos to be reduced in size to fit onto the page. i tried to make it masculine by using arrows rather than flowers for my embellishments. Some mist spots added a splash of colour to the layout.


Lisa from inspired has designed this sketch so that it  can be used with your 6 by 4 photos, drop by and have a look would love to see some of your interpretations of this awesome sketch.


thanks for popping by!!

Hello it’s been some time since I have shared on here, I would  like to share with you some of the layouts. That I did recently at the Savydelights retreat.

 The first I was inspired by Lisa Oxley who has an amazing eye for colour and I was truly inspired by her use of mists.

whistle love

The second layout was also done with use of the techniques and one of the tags that I made in the Delights class… Love the way this page come together!!

Thank you for being you

The next I enjoyed playing around with some mist, paint and washi, loved the contrast in this layout and those of you who know me know that t live contrast.. I feel that jack is starting to get to the age where my style needs to suit his age so it’s a little grungy !! Thank you for stopping by and I will be uploading some more layouts from this awesome weekend!!

Sunday Morning after a crop is always a little bit of a struggle, but i could not wait to share the layouts that i did at Scrapbooking Delights Last night. The company was great and i seemed to have my Mojo back. Four layouts done woohoo!! The layouts that i did last night consisted of a basic kit i put together consisting of:
Lillybee Design – Autumn Spice 6 by 6 Tiny Tablet
Thickers foam letter stickers
Wow Chevron 6×6 Altamat
Wow Chicken Wire 6×6 chipboard
My Minds Eye – Tiny Word Stickers
Studio Calico – letter set

You Emerge come up well using the strips, quite a simple layout but love the colours and how it come up.

Time out, i love to cut up the chipboard, to create the frame, i filled the white space with splatters of mist.

Our Rock walk was another simple layout using smaller photo’s happy with the end result.

And the last is for Inspired Blueprints sketch #83 again i put a spin on the sketch using a different page size, pop over and play along!!

Cheers Ren

At Home

I am so pleased that inspired blue prints is up and running again, i saw the sketch and really wanted to give it a shot, so here is sketch #82.  To play along pop over to Inspired Blueprints . I flipped the sketch and adapted it to my smaller 8.5 by 11 size, it is a very versatile sketch that can be adapted easily. This is the first layout that i have done at home in so long, i must say it took me a long time to complete.                                                   
I used the papers from Pebbles family ties paper pad 6×6. i love that they scaled down the original designs.
Just a quick share today i hope you have a great weekend!!

woohoo Inspired is back!!

After a productive night at Scrapbooking Deligts, i have some layouts to share, the first is an adaption of Sketch #81 from this months sketch challenge on Inspired Blueprints.
I have missed this awesome challenge site and look forward to adapting the 12 by 12 sketches to my preferred size of 8.5 by 11.

The sketch contained floral and butterflies so i turned into a more masculine sketch by using the cogs. So love the end result. If you want to play along this month i have posted the sketch,just have it uploaded to the gallery by the end of the month.

The next layout took some time to put together, the vintage theme helps with the overall feel of Nayte playing with the old trains at A day with Thomas.

The Last layout to share is this colourful one using a mini Pad, i love the colour combo and the banners, this is not my usual style but i love how it come together.
Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to 2013!!

A great way to see in the new year is to scrap with good Friends at Scrapbooking Delights, and the first layout of the night, I enjoyed playing around with the arrows, and the different fonts.The 8.5 by 11 in landscape helps to incorporate many photo’s and tell the entire story.

The next was done using my Favourite colour combo, orange and aqua. i used some of the We’re Savvy Kit – December 2012, that included Bo Bunny Blossoms Harvest Orange Pansey.
A splash of orange and black brings out the photo and the hand stitching brings it all together.
i used rub on’s and flowers to create some depth to the layout, really happy with the result.

Children’s week proved to be a challenge when it comes to photo’s the chipboard boarder helped to frame the photo, the back wash helped to break up the stripe. i do love the Thickers used in the layout suits the fun theme.

Thank you for coming by!!

 Hello and welcome!!
I would love to share some of my recent layouts..
The first is a layout that i had preplanned, Nayte had been doing all these faces of late and it took some time to work out how to scrap them. i have been enjoying doing 8.5 by 11 double pages and these lent them selves to this.
First the back ground was created using, Kaiser brick wall stamp, then some Mister Huey’s colour mists over the top.
I feel it gave it a grunge type     feel to the card stock. i added some twine and buttons and lettering to  express the moods and tell the story.

Faces of You

Faces of you close up
My Grannie

 The next layout was created using the Authentique Peaceful range… stunning paper pack and Details, love the green tones and the washi helps to bring out the photo!!
Some brads i picked up from stamping up were used to finish it off.

The Smile on him
Smile on him Close up

 Again i used the Authentique Peaceful range for this layout, some lovey chipboard from WOW, Washi tape some Typo twine and stampin up antique brads…
Love the end result.

Naytes Halloween Princess

The last lo was created using another Authentique paper range called the  Enchanted collection, I love the orange and black!!

Thank you for popping in, and if i don’t get a chance Merry Christmas and A happy New year to you!
