Lots of Flutterbies!

Based on last month's post, How to scrap those pesky un-matching photos, I created a similar layout to use in my scrapbook class:

This time I used the Brilliant Blue Flutterbies, but look at all the colours you can get!

Find them all in the Flutterby section here

In my class at Scrapulous everyone gets to bring their own papers and choose their own colour scheme and I thought I'd let you take a peek of how wonderfully different everyone's turned out! Some of these photos were taken at night, so please excuse the bad lighting.

Here are a few using the Perfectly Pink Flutterbies:

It's always amazing, how different they all look, simply based on different colours and photos!
Feast your eyes on some Classic Tones Flutterbies. You can never go wrong with black and white, it simply matches everything:

Here, some of the white flowers were sprayed yellow:

The Seeing Green Flutterbies are bright and cheerful, you can't help but love them and the wonderful layout they were used on:

Turquoise is my favourite colour and how happy do the Totally Turquoise Flutterbies look on this layout:

They even brighten up an otherwise soft and subdued colour scheme:

As the name suggests, the Brilliant Blue Flutterbies are, well, brilliant:

And if bright colours aren't your thing, how about the beautiful soft colours of the Autumn Tones Flutterbies. Just like the black and white set, this one goes with a lot of different colour mixes:

This last layout is a little special because it not only uses some of the elements of the Perfectly Pink Flutterbies, but also a few extras:

Too Much of a Good Thing

Hi there! 
This weekend I was in the middle of a background for my next layout, waiting for the texture paste to dry and checking my emails, when I was suddenly and completely inspired by the newest Case File at a challenge website that I sometimes visit - CSI: Colour, Stories Inspiration. Here's what I saw:

And here's what I made....a spontaneous, simple and fun layout filled with my2angels goodness :) Tracy has an embellishment (or 10 or 20) to suit EVERY occassion!

My background paper is randomly dotted with texture paste pushed through the Kaisercraft Quarters template. After it was dry I put the stencil back over the dots and very gently and lightly coloured them with some Pumice Stone and Mustard Seed Distress ink, using my Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool

There's actually no other paper on this layout at all. All the paper elements are bits and pieces from my (extensive!!!) stash of left-overs. The Inkssentials Black Tag #5 has my journalling on it - a shopping list of my DD's favourite foods when she was little) and slips easily out from behind the rest. 

Black, Pink/Peach and Yellow Cotton Ric Rac and Blossom Light Pink and White Baker's Twine were perfect to add more texture to this layout. 

A pretty pink Charming Pin is poking out from behind a large Pink Rose. There are several Light Pink Sweetheart Blossoms and a few Pink Rosebuds surrounding it. 
In the bottom corner, a large Black Rose.

Finally, for a bit of bling, there are four pretty Rhinestone Dots...Black, Fuschia and two Golden Yellow. This was possibly my fastest ever layout...but now back to the other one...pretty sure that background will be dry by now :)
