Collect Memories (Sizzix DT)

Hi everyone!  I'm finally back again after more time unwell.  I miss creating so much!

I finally found a small window of opportunity to create a layout.  I made this one for Sizzix using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set called "Scribbles & Splat" by Tim Holtz.  You can check it out on the Sizzix website here.

I made my layout with the Simple Stories "I Am" collection, of which I have the 6x6 paper pad and some pieces of 12 x12 cut apart sheets left.  The embellishments are bits and pieces left over from past Hip Kits.  I decided to scrap an A4 (8.5x11) page of Brielle on the swing at Arana Wildlife Park in Christchurch.

I used the heart and splatter dies, and I love how this one turned out.  

I decided to make the heart a real feature on my layout, its just so pretty!

I used the Pink Fresh Studio rubber charm tag as my title.  We are definitely a family who collect memories!

I even filmed this process, here is my video.

Sizzix have lots of exciting things going on, make sure you head on over to their site here to check out what's happening.

Bless you

Dream (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello! I know its been a while, and I'm really behind with sharing what I've been making.  I've been really sick for a couple of weeks, so my creativity has been virtually zero - which is a really horrible feeling when you're a very creative person.

This is a layout I made for the third reveal for March over at Lets Get Sketchy.  I used my February Clique Kit and scrapped a photo of my ballet shoes.  I started adult ballet classes during the last term of last year, its really hard because I've never done it before, but I love it!

I cut the "Happy" out of an exclusive card, I love the way it looks coming out of the typewriter.

I painted the wood veneer bow with gold acrylic paint.

The dream die cut word was perfect for my title, dreaming of being a ballerina!

And here is the sketch by Brenshevia.

Thanks for looking!
