Adventure + OH Neigh | Flutterby Design Team Share

Today I am sharing two layouts that pushed the boundaries on the new “Fur-ever Friends” Collection.  I went back and looked through thousands of photos to see which ones had animals in them.  We don’t have any pets so I had to find alternatives.

This is what I came up with.  The first layout is of my daughters first visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.  Lone Pine is a small animal sanctuary in the heart of Brisbane.  It is a  great place to take kids at is is not too big and you can get a yearly pass fairly cheap.  That means that you can justify going there and only spending an hour or two at a time makes it easy to tire the kids out and you still have enough money left over for new Scrappy supplies you have been eyeing off in the Flutterby Shop.

I will apologise now for the low light of my photos.  It seems when we have really hot bright days, I cannot photograph layouts.  Stained glass windows look great but are a bitch to work with.  The light just doesn’t work and outside is not an option as our house is painted blue and this really kills any natural light.

Here is my first layout.

To read about the process and products head over to the Flutterby Designs Blog and check it out.

Now on to my next layout.  Another series of photos that I found was this of my first Melbourne Cup as a mother.  I loved Melbourne Cup before kids not that I ever really put on a bet.  But I love fascinators and the excitement.  This is my first time going to a Luncheon and it was great fun.

This whole layout is based around the Oh Neigh card from the “Fur-ever Friends” Everyday Etc Cards.

 

 

Well, I hope I have inspired you to use your cards a bit differently.  Please share what you create on the Flutterby Inspiration HQ page.  I’d love to see them.

Snapchat is an app that has been real popular on a lot of Scrapbooking Layouts of late and my husband has been snapchatting his work buddies for a while but I never really saw the point of it.  But I needed animal photos and this was the best way to get some with meaningful stories behind them.  The reason I decided to download Snapchat was because my son was having a very hard time adjusting to his older sister starting kindy.  He was very very sad.  I had to try and find little things that he and I could do (and his little sister who was yet to step into big sister shoes) and take his mind off the fact that it was only 8.45am, she had only been gone 15 minutes and he had to wait until 2.30pm for her to come home.

Here is another layout where I used Snapchat photos.

I made this layout more about the rainbow of colours. It is a bright fun layout that makes my son smile.

 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Spencer and the Crazy Cat lady | Flutterby Designs DT Share

Just  quick share today using the new Flutterby Designs “Fur-ever” friends collection. This was the 8th layout I created from this collection.  I had plans for a layout but then things changed on Saturday.  This layout features my best friends cat, Spencer.  I had planned to make a funny layout but then on Saturday, my BF Sarah, told me Spence was a little bit off and had to make a weekend visit to the vet.  On Monday after a grim diagnosis Spencer was put to sleep.  So I changed my funny layout to something Sarah could hang on her wall.  I framed and delivered it before she got home from work.

For the background I used the “You Spin Me Right Round” Stencil  with some Colour Blast Colour Spray, then stamped over the top for a bit more visual interest.

Here are a few close ups…

Sarah loved it.

Now here is another layout layout I did.  I thought I would never manage to use the cat cards from this collection, then on a day last week when it was close to a MILLION degrees (Queensland summer temperature at 40 degrees celcius) my daughter decided the it was too hot for clothes but totally suitable for a cat beanie.  She wouldn’t wear the damn thing in winter and I have no idea where she got it from but Freaking Crazy is the only way to describe her.

Just like Dad!

After too much time not doing much in the way of scrapping, hubby is back at work and I have made time to make sure I am getting stuff done.  Seeing the Kraft + challenge this month and the fact that it’s about bikes and my husband is a cyclist I just had to have a go.

Here is my take on the challenge.

I printed out some Chain Wheel designs and cut them out then used them like a mask.  The background is Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays in Steel, Singin the Blues and Steel.  I also used the small wood veneer cogs as masks when I sprayed the Charms Creations DIY circle.  The Just like dad chipboard is embossed with the matching embossing powders from Colour Blast Australia.  Oh and all the other bits a from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, Flutterby Designs and the Jack and Jill Collection by Echo Park.

Here are a few close ups.

There will be a process video coming to the POPLEOPOD channel on YouTube too.  So keep an eye out for that.

Love | White with 1

This layout was inspired by this months challenge over at White with 1.  The colour is Princess Pink. I did forget one thing….The White!  But I love the layout anyways.  This layout is a photo of my daughter Autumn and I, when she was about 10 days old.  I can’t believe how fast time has flown…she is nearly 2.

For this layout, I have used the New Flutterby Designs collection called “Mad About You” and teamed it up with some Colour Blast Shimmer Dust in Lollipop.  Perfect – Princess Pink!

Oh and of course, this layout needed a pink Charms Creation heart to finish it off.

Husbands are like wine | Flutterby Designs DT Layout

Today is my last share for this term of the Flutterby Designs Design Team. I am sharing another layout using the NEW Mad about You range and I designed it all around the card- “Husbands are like wine. They take a long time to mature”.  This layout features my brother and his partner and the card suited them and this photo to a T.

Here is my layout:
