Hello Love – Lydia Gibson

Hello beautiful people, Lydia here back to share a layout I did the other day using the beautiful “Hello Love” collection by Crate Paper and some of the exclusive Shine On foiled flairs from the Studio Fourteen 40 shop.

I don’t know what it would be like not to have a pet present in our lives… Both Matt and I have always had Dog’s and even today, we have a gorgeous Fur Baby, Bailey that lives with us. There is nothing like cuddling up to our beloved pets on a day where life doesn’t…


We are going on a Summer Holiday… :)

today – Gina Rodgers

I’m sharing my first page of the year today – a mixed media background on light kraft card, with layers of gesso, ink, paint, graphite and stamping. The white crosses were created using the end of a piece of flexible plastic card (a loyalty card snipped in half lengthways) by dipping in gesso and lightly touching on card….

All ladies love gentlemen – Krisy Podolak

Today is just a quick share to show you another of my Challenge layouts from November.. November is Movember month and what a great way to celebrate it with a MO. My layout this month features a photo of my son that I took when he was about 8 months old. It makes me smile…


Smile – Krisy Podolak

Krisy is the challenge queen… The following layout is another that she has done for an online store challenge and it’s gorgeous… The spotty paper is from Studio Calico and the spots are bronze. It is really pretty but hard to photograph. I think this is a pretty simple layout for me. I’ve kept the…


A visitor at S1440 – come on in Chloe!

Every now and then I am stopped in my tracks by the amazing talent that pops up on my screen and not long ago while I was minding my own business I was floored by something that I saw.. The layout was full of creativity and it’d was evident that this lady though outside of…

Op Shop & Coffee Date – Gina Rodgers

How beautiful is the new Shine On foil range of flair? They really make a statement on your pages and I couldn’t wait to scrap with one so I’ve created another mixed media page using a gorgeous mint flair I’ve used a mix of gold, lime, aqua, teal and blue inks to build up the background, finishing…


Cutie Patootie – Krisy Podolak

This months moodboard challenge over at Jot Magazine is so pretty I just couldn’t wait to have a go. I will admit I changed my photo choice half way through to match the background, you have to be flexible. Incase you haven’t seen it here is the moodboard here and here is my finished layout…….

Happy Memories – Gina Rodgers

I’ve loved using mixed media on my pages for quite a few years now, but this time I decided go all out and cover the whole 12×12″ cardstock! Starting with a thin scraping of gesso I’ve built up the colour layers using distress stains, and mists and finished with a few mist splatters and graphite scribbles. I quite like the…

Strawberries & Cream – Gina Rodgers

This week I’ve had the pleasure of playing with the new ‘lovely’ range of embellishments and what fun they are to create with! They work perfectly against a mixed media background, this time I’ve gone all out with the pink! I’m warming to this colour as usually tend to go for a blue-green palette but decided…

Camping just got {real} fun – Ree Peace
