More Jillibean Soup 'Summer Red Raspberry Soup'

Hi there everyone! I am on the fly today, so just wanted to quickly pop in to share more of my DT work for The Scrapbook Store working with the beautiful Jillibean Soup 'Summer Red Raspberry Soup' collection. The layout below is about 2 very cute 'muffin monsters'. We met with some friends for breakfast a few weeks ago and these two little rascals consumed a whole lot of muffins between the two of them.  I thought that these papers had just the right amount of fun to match the photos. :)
The flowers are from Prima and the wood veneers is part of this collection.
This photo shows the heap of empty muffin casings/wrappers. Lol!
More wood veneer butterflies and flowers, which I coloured up using my new Prima Watercolor pencils. I've also added a few enamel dots from my stash.
More wood veneer as well as some Pea Pod Parts and Soup Labels.
I've also made two cards using my left overs. I am not a great card maker, but do enjoy creating the odd card now and again.  This first card features few Green Tara mini roses, a Prima flower and butterfly as well as a gorgeous border that was cut using a Joy! Crafts die. Finished it off with a bit of seam binding and a wood veneer heart. :)

For the next card, I've used another Joy Crafts die. Everything else, except for the epoxy shapes and seam binding are from the 'Summer Red Raspberry Soup' collection.

That's all for today, and as hubby and I are leaving for a 12 day trip to Tasmania tomorrow night, it will be my last post for a short while. I hope you are all having a beautiful week and thank you so much for popping in.
Until next time!

Jillibean Soup for The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well and enjoying a lovely weekend.
Today I want to share a DT layout I've created for The Scrapbook Store.  I am working with the super cute Jillibean 'Summer Red Raspberry Soup' collection this month.  The photo is of my friend's gorgeous little girl and was taken about 5 years ago. 
I've added a bit of texture using the Prima 'Bubbles' stencil and Liquitex 'Super Heavy Gesso'.
A close up of some of the cute little 'Pea Pod Parts' that's part of this collection.
 More 'Pea Pod Parts' and 'Soup Labels' teamed with a few 'Wood Veneer' flowers.
 And another close up for good measure. :)
This is all for today. I have another few projects to share using this awesome collection, so I'm hoping to be back soon. Thank you so much for visiting.
Until next time.

April Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Where has the time gone? My boy is home for the 2 week uni holiday and my girl and hubby are home too, so I think there are too many distractions and lovely things to do.  Hubby and I also celebrated our 25the wedding anniversary on Tuesday and a few friends and I organised a surprise 50th birthday party on Saturday for another friend.  With all the extra activities, no wonder I'm not getting time for blogging. :)
A bit on the late side, but today I want to share the April Sketch at The Scrapbook Store with you.
Here is my example, using the gorgeous new Bo Bunny 'Garden Journal' collection.  You might recognise some (or all 3) of the lovely ladies in the photo. :)
The fence is from Dusty Attic and I've treated it with a layer of brown acrylic paint followed by a layer of white crackle paint.
The banner was fussy cut from one of the patterned papers in this collection and the title is an older Heidi Swapp alpha set that I coloured up using Distress ink.
I have used a variety of Prima flowers and Green Tara mini roses. The leaves were punched from cardstock using a Martha Stewart punch.
All products are from The Scrapbook Store.  I hope you get a chance to play along with us. There's a $40 store voucher up for grabs and it also includes free postage. The winner gets determined by random draw, so anybody can win.  You have until the end of April to get your entries in. Good luck!
That's all for today. Thank you so much for visiting. Have an absolute wonderful week!
Until next time.
