I am what I Choose to Become

Here is another layout completed using the left over papers from the Kaisercraft 45c collection.

I really like this picture of myself and it was a selfie, which I am not good at taking, so was very happy with the end result. I also think it really suited the layout. I used part of a tag from the collection of papers. I loved what it said.
Another favourite is the black script washi tape. It's my new obsession and think it lends itself well to these papers.

Another of my favourites is my dymo machine. I picked it up for $5 at the reject shop a few years ago, but I love that it is quick and easy to journal pages with.


The black lace flowers used in this layout where from a headband picked up at a discount store. I love to search these places for cheap embellishments. The silver flower was picked up from Scrap It, Flaunt It in Kelmscott. I am not sure of the brand.

I really like the way this page all came together and was very happy that it took me less than an hour too. Normally I sit for hours trying to fit everything together. On this particular day, it was like it almost fell onto the page. My creativity was definately flowing.

Well I hope you have all enjoyed my first month of creating for Made with Memories and I look forward to the next challenge.

Take care and happy scrapping

Imagine

This layout was inspired by the photo. The beautiful image is of my niece and the photo was taken by Hourglass Photography in NSW.
The paper range is from Kaisercraft called 45cents collection. They really matched well with the photo.
I love the way I was able to line the lettering up with the flower to give the I its dot.

These butterfly are part of the embellishment collection. I coloured them with "Mustard Seed" Distress Ink.


The lace border is from Prima and I purchased it in the United States. The scrolls are coloured with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and then I used glossy accents to coat them. They are from Dusty Attic. Flowers are Prima.


This beautiful quote says " If a butterfly can flap its wings a thousand times a minute to reach its destination.....Imagine what you can do". I found it a scrapbooking magazine.


I am very happy with the finished product.

This layout was created for Made with Memories.

1st Post for Made with Memories Design Team........Bathing Beauties

I am truely excited to be posting my very first project for Made with Memories Design Team.

These bottles were created using the new Kaisercraft paper range 45c.

I was inspired to create these bathing beauties after a recent trip to America, where I was visiting a gorgeous little scrapbook store in Salt Lake City...Mom and Me Scrapbooking and saw some bottles decorated for Christmas...so when I saw this range I wanted to put my own little spin on them and came up with these bathing beauties.









I recycled some Corona Bottles, covered over the labels, decorated and then filled them with Bath Fizz, Hand Soap, Body Wash and Shower Gel . My very handy husband then put the bottle tops on for me. I was given some beautiful red wine for Christmas in the holder, so I recycled it and decorated with the Kaiser paper, some washi black script tape, ribbon and Kaisercraft flowers. I absolutely love the end result.

You could also adapt these to hold embellishments, lollies, coloured water for decorative purposes or you could dress them up in a tux and a wedding dress and use for wedding favours for your guests. Unlimited possibilities...

Enjoy creating
