Savvy July DT reveal

This month I have been lucky enough to create with the new Jenni Bowlin collection, Haven. The very first thing I noticed with these papers, they have FINALLY started using heavy duty cardstock, YEAH. Over the years, they have released some amazing collection but I have generally steered clear because of the paper quality.

But that is no longer an issue, the quality is divine!! And they smell yummy, yes I do sniff the paper LOL!

So don't delay girls!! You will not be disappointed with this collection. Head over to Scrapbook Savvy here to make your purchase.

The collection has a vintage feel to it, but it works beautifully with any black and white photos. I've started by creating a masculine page of my 2 favourite guys to a phoot shoot with my beautiful Great-Niece Alexis.
I think they have all worked well with the papers.

You will see a few pieces of 2Crafty chipboard featured as well.

Celebrate today

2Crafty title Celebrate today and large Postage Stamp frame


These Two Hearts

2Crafty title Two Hearts and some Maggie Swirls



2Crafty title Thankful and small Postage Stamp frames

NOTE: dear family, yes I now the month is wrong, already fixed. :)


Bella Blvd - Christmas Wishes

Their final collection has been released over at Bella Blvd and now they are madly preparing for the 2011 Summer CHA.
I am sure it will be a very successful event.

This Christmas collection is gorgeous!
The colour combination is fresh and bright and I love the choice of patterns Bella Blvd have used, very universal and festive.

I had lots of fun with this collection, and I will be using it more as Christmas approaches this year.

Favourite time of year


And I did a few cards too

This week we will start to reveal the amazing new collections designed by Stephanie from Bella Blvd.

I have my absolute favourites, but I really do LOVE them all.

So I hope you will check in each day this week to see my sneaks and head over to the Bella Blvd blog to see more.


2Crafty reveal - Little Angel

Did you know 2Crafty have added some fabulous new chipboard titles to their collection?

I've used Little Angel to scrap a page of my gorgeous niece.
We bought her this beautiful skirt from Shabbylicious Designs and I couldn't wait to see her in it. Be even better when she is walking.

The title has been embossed with a stars folder and my BigShot, then given a light spray of glimmermist and left to dry. To finish it off I have swiped the raised areas with a gold ink pad.


Here is the finished page:

The Scrappiest #127 & 2Crafty cross paths

Sorry I am dragging my feet a little this week, I've had a secret mission to complete which I have been working since Monday night and finally finished it at 3.30am this morning. The project is now on it's way to the other side of the world.

This week sketch from The Scrappiest was simply fantastic! It came together really quickly and it was perfect to showcase a 2Crafty chipboard title at the same time :)

Here's the sketch, I know you will love it too


I have used the words 'Father' and 'son' from the Family Word Pack
I've grabbed 3 different co-ordinating colours of glimmermist and sprayed the chipboard in layers of colour. Once dry I used my black ink pen to doodle around the edges of the letters.


Very happy with the end result!
