A little detective work with CSI ...

Hey there

This month Lindys Stamp Gang have partnered with CSI: Colour, Stories, Inspiration and I have created a super easy layout.

When I first looked at this, I admit I was a little overwhelmed but once I broke down the elements, it was so much fun!

The Scene... I used the full colour palette ... painting the Cameo cuts with the following Lindys Stamp Gang products … Shaker – Bratwurst Brown & Oom Pah Pah Pink, Magicals – Hottie Patotti Hot Pink & Gag Me With A Spoon Gray and Aloha Avocado Spray.

Evidence ...a White background, Floral Pattern, Leaves and Flowers, Hand Drawn looking elements 

Testimony ... word Love and journaling about the Love I have for my Grandmother,

Pop over and have a go ... its super fun and really easy!

Much Love

Lindys February Challenge ...

Hey there

It's time for another challenge over at Lindys Stamp Gang!

This month is is celebrating all things PINK with this gorgeous colour palette.

I decided to go for a simple but effective Scrapbook Layout using photos taken at Jessica's birthday last year.

I really enjoy going back to basics with Scrapbooking - sometimes simplicity is best ... let the photos do the talking!

I used my Cameo machine to cut out a phrase - this is just using the text tool with the letters welded together in a font I chose.
Once cut, I used the five colours from the Special Edition Pack to colour the words - using a paint brush, this was super easy to apply.


I love the 'Ombre' effect ... and it makes the photos pop out too!

So have a go this month ... and upload your entry to the FB Group here!

Fun Times for Lindys Stamp Gang

Hey there!
I am beyond thrilled to be an Ambassador for Lindys Stamp Gang this year and have the most incredible year coming up with a heap of classes all around Australia and New Zealand … plus another teaching Cruise through the South Pacific in November AND starting my own business …
I LOVE my busy life!
So today I want to share with you some more in depth details of my Layout created
for the January Color Challenge!
This Color palette is just gorgeous and was the perfect fit for this image taken a while ago inNew Zealand of myself, the delightful Paula Cheney & the AE team. So much fun in one pic!
So here are a few easy steps to recreate this Scrapbook Page!
I started with Modeling Paste through a Stencil on flat white cardstock
I then tipped a little I’m Late I’m Late Slate, Azure Seas Asters & Tainted Love Teal into
my palette for easy access
Using a round brush, I started with the lightest color first – I’m Late I’m Late Slate,  and ‘puddled’ the color on my page over the stencilling. Once dry, I the used the Azure Sea Asters and repeated the process, pushing the color up against and on top of the Slate and then dried that layer.
I then added Tainted Love Teal – as this is the darkest color, I started off with a small amount but then added more and more!
It admittedly looks like a blotchy mess but keep in mind that its just the background!
I then added some splatters of each colour and popped it aside to dry.
I love using die cuts on my pages and cards as they make easy embellishments and I can customise them to suit! These were cut out of 300gsm watercolor paper and then the leaves were colored with Cowabunga Copper & Fuzzy Navel Peach and the circles in Tainted Love Teal.
My title is double heat embossed using Morning Glory Azure & Twilight Blue Slate.
And my little chipboard crosses are using Cowabunga Copper.
So it’s not difficult to get a finish that looks gorgeous! Here are a few close ups of the page.

So give it a go – it’s easier than you think!


  • Imaginarium Designs chipboard, 13@rts Modeling Paste, Dusty Attic Stencil, assorted dies, Viva LasVegas Stamps
