Easter Scrapping

Lots of inspiration for you today if you intend to spend the Easter scrapping, like I intend to do.

"Free spirit"

I had some photos of Leah with braids that I thought went well with the theme. The Trendsetter Handsome Vintage paper and Accessorise paper  are the background. I cut around the tree and the birdcage a little bit to slide my photo under.

Just for fun, there is a bird house charm  in the tree.
The Trendsetter District45 paper  has some awesome things to cut out. Do you like my VW Beetle on flower power?

They are the new Pink Resin Cabochons flowers  and gosh, they are cute!
I cut out one of the models too but without hair it looked very odd to me. So I made her some braids from brown baker's twine to match Leah's.

To make the rosette I punched a scallop border from Handsome vintage paper, scrunched it up and glued it behind a circle of Trendsetter Leaders  to look like a ruffle. Add some more yellow baker's twine  to give it a cool border.

and now Wendy

This layout uses the gorgeous Pink Paislee Hometown Summer Range, I am so loving green and white at the moment!

I have used Snowflake cardstock and then both sides of the Green Acres paper for my background. I sanded the edges of both papers and then mounted the smaller spotted piece on to some cardboard to lift it off the page.  I then staggered my photos (of the very cute Quokkas) and then set about using some of the PP Hometown Summer accessories.

The banner is from the Border Stickers with Glitter which has some awesome patterns in it, and so easy because they are already made for you!! Then I’ve used the cloud, sun, ‘Summer’ circle, Beautiful Day tag and brown journaling tag from the Punch Outs

I’ve also used some of my favourite alphas from the Echo Park For the Record Alpha Cardstock stickers sheet for the words QUOKKA and ROTTO. The date and tab stickers are from this set of stickers too.
The rest of the aphas are Thickers Daiquiri, which I have now discovered in Green, a change from my usual black! And some Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alphas.


Now I confess, I stuffed up on my cloud! When I decided to outline the ‘locals’ with black pen at the last minute, I got pen all  over my hand and consequently then got it all over my cloud L SO I ended up having to paint it and then emboss it with white embossing powder. I then added a little china blue embossing around the edges to make it look like the original punch out! And voila, stuff up fixed! 

Hope you all have a lovely Easter!

I was ever so lucky to be able to use the gorgeous new Websters Page Ladies and Gentlement pack from Tracy.  Ohhh my…. Their paper just gets better and better every single time. I love the color combos Websters use

 For this layout I have used the Ladies and Gentleman Groomed Traveler paper.  Was a hard decision which side to use as they are both so lovely.  I have also used the neat as a pin Little story tellers timeless letter stickers.  I have used the Framed Beauty Paper and cut out this beautiful frame.  The ideas were endless on what to do with this.  I have actually used a clear Emboss it Ink pad , sprinkled some green lettuce embossing powder over the top and used my heat gun to set the embossing powder.   Love this finished look.   
With the Scrapware bird on a branch I have stamped it using the Tim Holtz ink then added Distress Crackle Paint Clear Rock Candy to it.  Let it dry.  Then added my favorite wee Owl charm

With Tracys wee Blank pins I have just cut out one of the crowns off the paper and adhere it to the pin.  Love these pins.  

 Finally I have added a white Gardenia Mulberry paper flower.  I have sprayed it using 3 Tattered Angels Glimmer mist colors.  Coffee shop lightly first, then the Key lime Pie  and then Apple.  I have then added some white embossing powder, applied the Papermania Heat Gun and then finally added some Diamond dust to the tips of the petals.  Love this Diamond Dust.. It is simply gorgeous.  Not far from a Prima Flower when you have added a few touches.

So go ahead and have a bit of a dabble in the embossing and blinging up world.  It is so much fun.  I am just a newby at it too and it is amazing what you can create.
See you all soon and I am hoping to meet a lot of you at the Scrapbooking and Paper Fair in Brisbane in June.  Our motel is booked for the long weekend and we are planning on having a ball.
