September Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone.  Today I would like to share the September Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store with you all.  You still have 2 weeks left to get your entries in. There's a $40 Store voucher up for grabs as well as free postage! The winner gets determined by random draw, so anybody can win. :) Why not give it a go? I would love to see your take on the sketch. :)
My take on the sketch, using the gorgeous Prima 'Garden Fable' collection
The birdie is a wood veneer piece from 'Garden Fable'.  I have added a bit of white and black details. I've cut the nest and leaves from one of the patterned papers and the branch is from Dusty Attic.
The butterflies were painted with Luminarte Silks. I love the gorgeous shiny colours. :)  The house and some of the flowers were cut from the patterned papers too. The rest of the flowers are from the collection with a few Green Tara mini roses.  The keyhole is also a wood veneer piece from the collection. :)
 I've added some texture using my Tim Holtz 'Tiles' stencil and some texture paste. More colour was added in the form of Glimmer Mist 'drips'.  :)
That is all I have for today. I hope to be back soon, with more 'creativeness' to share. :)
Thank you so much for popping by. Hope you have a wonderful week.
Until next time.

Simple Stories 'So Fancy' for The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone! I have a huge post today.  I was so lucky to receive the Simple Stories 'So Fancy' collection in my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store last month. It's a gorgeous girly range, just perfect for my young adult daughter. So without further delay, here are my creations using it.
The first one is of my DD pulling a face at the camera. I have mainly used papers and frames from this collection. The flowers are from Prima and the butterfly from Petaloo. I have also added burlap, twine as well as a Dusty Attic chipboard title.
 A few close ups of some of the details.

And here is a card I made using the papers and adding a Bo Bunny paper doily, a strip of burlap and a Green Tara mini rose. I have cut the butterfly using a Cheery Lynn die.
My next layout is about my DD's love for Instagram. The background was done using a stencil and texture paste and the rest of the products are papers, stickers, frames and enamel dots from the Simple Stories 'So Fancy' collection.  The word '#insta' was cut using my Silhouette machine.
 And again, a few close ups to show more of the detail.

For my last layout I used Bazzil kraft cardstock as my base.  This is DD and her best friend. They have been friends since early high school years and are also studying together at uni. Some flowers were fussy cut from one of the papers and the rest of the flowers are from Prima as well as Green Tara mini roses
 More close ups again. :)

Phew! Now I definitely need to go to bed. I hope you are all well and enjoying the change of season wherever you are. We had the coldest day in Perth since the start of winter. Luckily the sun was shining and they are forecasting some lovely warm spring days for later in the week. :)
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a lovely week.
Until next time.
