Fabscraps Tutorial | C106 Life Is Beautiful

And my last post for today!

Another beautiful range from Fabscraps is C106 Life is Beautiful (aptly named!).  If flowers and fussy cutting is your thing – this is the one for you.  The range has such a soft and feminine feel, with some really interesting ‘texture’ element pages too.  I loved it!  And also, the range of colours in this is just amazing and surprising!

Here is the link to the tutorial for one of the few projects I made using this gorgeous range.

Fabscraps Tutorials | C107 Hello I’m New

I was rendered pretty much speechless last week when I was informed that I had made it on to the Design Team for Fabscraps again – this will be my fourth year running.  I really do love working with their products and I am humbled that I get to stay on another year.

One of their ranges that I have fallen particularly in love with (and, honestly, is by far the best Baby themed range I have EVER worked with) – is C107, Hello I’m New.  Here is one of the few projects I made, along with a tutorial which is up on their site currently.  Head on over and take a look!

Here is the link for this card, close ups and tutorial.

Grow Laughter | White..with 1 DT

Next up, is the lovely colour challenge over at White..with 1.  I really enjoyed working with this green mood board, even though green is not usually a colour I would gravitate towards.

I was inspired by the ‘nature’ element of this moodboard, and this is what I created using the inspiration above.  I also couldn’t resist adding in a flower that had a bit of a ‘lettuce’ look about it.

My Sunshine | MIUCB DT

My second project for March is for Mix It Up Challenge Blog – the theme this month is Anything Goes + Create Your Own Background.

My daughter grew her very own Sunflower – I thought that this opportunity (to create my own background) would be perfect to use this photograph I took of her, proudly posing next to her flower.

Head on over to the blog for more inspiration from my fellow talented DT members and join us, won’t you?

Hello December | CSI DT

Hi there after a lengthy break.  Things have been rather poop my end, since 2018 started, but I’m finally managed to find some time to do some blog posts for my DT work. In a bid to get ahead on all my commitments, I also managed to get myself into a bit of a frazzle!

Anyway!  Here is the latest challenge over at CSI

We do hope you’ll play along with us!

Here is how I solved the case:


My eye was first drawn to the ombre of the trees – and then to all the “pointy” bits. I created an ombre background to mimic the trees and I used crimson woodgrain paper to mat my photo cluster, echoing the “pointy” bits. I fussy cut some foliage and used paper that also had a foliage print on it! The picture was taken on a day outing with my daughter during the school holidays in December last year.
