'Inhale the future, exhale the past'

Hello crafty peeps!
It's raining cats and dogs outside so it looks like another crafty 
day for me...what are your plans?
I am back to share my third layout designed with the beautiful January
kit from International Scrapbook Garden, 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'Inhale the future...exhale the past....'


I have to say I adore 7 Dots Studio papers, and I was so happy to see the latest
collection in the January kit! I love all the possibilities with their collections,
sometimes a neutral background, like with this paper - it lets bright colors really shine -
or other times, the depth to the patterns really inspire me.
Here I wanted to let the colors of this kit really pop with purple, teal and pink.

Here is this months main kit and bonus kits:

'Truth keeper'

Hello friends :) I'm back with a page I designed for Mixed Media & Art.
I fell in love with the January moodboard at Lindy's Stamp Gang, so 
I bought the Limited Edition spray set featuring peach, copper and blues,
and this is what I created...

'Truth keeper'



I didn't follow the moodboard this month at Mixed Media & Art, although it was beautiful
as always. I built up a lot of layers under my photo using some vintage ephemera, some chipboard
that I embossed in copper, and of course splashed around a lot of the beautiful 
sprays... 7 Dots Studio papers from the 
'Dreamscapes' collection help me create my wintery scene.

I would like to enter my layout in the January challenge:


I used the January Spray set:

This set includes:


Here are a few close ups:



I love Lindy's sprays, the colors seem magical to me.... they're so unique, and
I adore how they shimmer and shine.



Thanks for looking!

'Frosted Trees' for The International Scrapbook Garden

Hello my lovelies! 
I'm back with my second layout created with the January kit from 
The International Scrapbook Garden called 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'Frosted Trees'


Aren't these 7 Dots Studios papers so yummy? I love them! I thought this paper
made the perfect backdrop to splash around some super vibrant colors, and the teal
and fuchsia colors in this kit go so well together. I created my background
using the stencil and the stamp from the kit and then added the Shimmerz spray
and some watercolors.

I followed a sketch from one of my favourite blogs, Ecopaper.
I have followed this blog for a while now, and this sketch was perfect.
Ecopaper has some beautiful papers and dies that I would love to play with:)

Here is the sketch:

And for more info on how to buy this beautiful kit, please visit 
The International Scrapbook Garden online store here.

Here are a few close ups:



I've never had any of the Prima Fluid Chalk edgers before, and I was surprised
at how smooth and rich the pigments were as I applied them to some
vintage ephemera pieces, beautiful! I think adding those colors added a lot
of depth to my layers and kind of tied everything together.



Here is a list of all the products I used from the Main kit, and all the add ons:

7 Dots Studio paper 'Frayed Knot'
13arts paper 'Freedom'
Prima Stencil
Kaisercraft stamp P.S. I love You
Shimmerz 'Grape Escape' Spray
Prima Fluid Chalk Pink

'We are all dreamers' a new kit by The International Scrap Garden

Hi there! Great news!
I've been invited to be a designer at the new scrapbook kit club
called The International Scrapbook Garden, and this is my very first layout using
the beautiful January kit called 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'we are all dreamers...'


There are two new kits that come out each month; one called The Garden kit that
seems more shabby and feminine, these are the kits I will be designing with, and another set
of kits called The Tool Shed, which are a little bit more masculine and grungy...
both January kits are so wonderful and full of my favourite brands.
I was so pleased when I tore open my box a few days ago, two gorgeous paper
collections, 'Art Journey' by 13 arts (which I used for this page) and 'Northern Lights' 
by 7 Dots Studio (I was longing for these papers since the first day I saw them),
and so many beautiful flowers, chipboards, stamps, embellishments
and mediums, I was floored by how many goodies were in that box and
how well everything fit together.

Here is the main January Garden kit:


And then there are some beautiful add ons to the Main Kit,
absolutely chock full of wonderful mediums, flowers and chipboard:

I love to tear papers up to create some interesting layers, here I glued down another 13 arts paper
on top and then added some stenciling with 13 arts modeling paste and then added the Shimmerz
spray, some stamping and some flowers from the main kit.


Here is a list of all the products I used from January kit and add ons:

13 arts paper 'Travel'
13 arts paper 'Freedom'
Kaisercraft Stamp 'P.S. I love you'

'Everyday blues...'

Hello my crafty ladies, happy weekend!
It's a bitterly cold Saturday morning and I know what I have planned today...
rest, homemade soup and lots of crafting!

'Everyday blues...'


I've had some mojo 'issues' recently, just not feeling too inspired to do my messy
layouts...so I've been taking some long walks in the fields in my house lately,
and I took these photos one morning and they sparked some ideas...
I thought about all the things that inspire me to create art, backgrounds full of vibrant
watercolors, lots of natural elements: thick brown twine, flowers, leaves, 
torn up fabrics and vintage books, beads, all of which I tried to incorporate on my page.
Of course, pulling out my favourite 7 Dots Studios papers always helps
a lot too....I love the dark, vintage and mysterious feel to them and the
Hazy Days collection fit my mood perfectly.

I would like to enter my page in the 7 Dots Studio current challenge,
using your three favourite colors, here I chose blue, brown and white/cream.
More info on this challenge, here.






I'll be back soon with some great news...I'm on a new team!
Thanks for looking,
Lisa xo

'Peace on Earth'

Hello friends! Happy New Year to each and every one of you!
Thank you to all the girls who follow my blog and leave me such kind words...
I hope that 2018 will see all of our dreams come true:)

I have happy news that I get to stay on my favourite team....
Mixed Media & Art! I'm looking forward to another year of 
creating layouts that I hope will inspire you to join in the fun!

'Peace on Earth'



As always the December moodboard is a wonder to behold and you
can also choose to use the sketch too. I was inspired by the colors of mint
green, soft browns and lots of snowy white, and the also the deer and snowflakes.

Here is the moodboard:


Please go here to find out how to enter and also to see the wonderful
projects by our design team.

Here are a few close ups:



I used a new Kaisercraft paper collection and added lots of Prima goodies:
flowers, pearls, art stones and paper clay molds. I also used some white lace, pinecones,
silver beads and some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on the background.



All the best,
Lisa xo
