Inspired Blueprints and a farewell

After a little break, Inspired Blueprints is back again :).  However, my term is up and since I have so much on my plate, I've decided not to stay on.  I want to thank Lisa for the wonderful opportunity of being on the IB team - I have really enjoyed my time and some of my IB pages are among my most favourite pages :)

So, my last sketch reveal is Sketch #102

Here's the sketch:
And my page:

Lots of goodies on this page!!  A Rainbow Splendour chevie, a {scrAp this} arrow, and a Greatest View badge ...

Don't forget the DT call for Inspired Blueprints!!  Find all the details here.

Mood Board Monday | Metallic

Hello and welcome to another Mood Board Monday ... this week it's all about metallics.  Check out the other mood boards linking up at Life As We Know It.

When I began to collect images for my mood board, I noticed quite a few PINK metallic things ... so since I {heart} pink, I decided to narrow my metallic mood board down to pink metallics!  And don't they look fun!! :D :D

1. Such pretty, sparkly Pink metallic glitter sandals ... you couldn't put a foot wrong in these ;-)

2. Pink Metallic Non-Woven Totes - it looks to good to carry groceries in (and for that price, you wouldn't want to!!)

3. Gold Metallic Wedding Cake With Pink Applique Circles and Ribbons - absolutely stunning!  (and I HAD to have a cake this week!)

4. This Pink metallic wallpaper looks so pretty teamed with silver.

5. Pink metallic ribbon would look perfect wrapped around a gift!

6. This Pink Metal Pendant Shade looks so interesting ... although I do wonder how to keep something like that clean :/

7. Pyramid Metal Tip Clutch - just love it!

Next week is HEXAGONAL ... now that sounds interesting!!!! :-) :-)

SOLD OUT "He's Savvy"

I'm super excited to share with you my pages from the FIRST kit designed by ME!!  I'm also extremely excited that it SOLD OUT within days of release!  I really hope everyone loved it as much as I did.  It sold out so quick, Sar didn't even get a 'proper' kit photo, just the little sneak she shared on facebook:

I was able to whip up 3 pages in one night.  I just love kits!!  Everything matches, you really don't have to think of anything apart from page design and finding photos to match :D
So, my first page:
With my kit, I also received my new FAVOURITE stencil ... the Heidi Swapp sunburst - isn't it amazing!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! :D
I loved it so much, I also used it on my next page ...
You might spy some Rainbow Splendour chevies here too.  Sar has graciously allowed my to add some Rainbow Splendour to kits! 
And this next page was the only page I added something from my stash to (the yellow bottletop)
Thanks for visiting, keep your eye out for more fabulous Savvy kits, we have heaps in the pipeline :) :) :)

Now, this week, I've done something a little different.  I'm a scrapbooker and this week, I've decided to look for NEON scrappy products ... I love the look of them altogether ... the dots and the flairs are my favourite :) ...

Cousins and FWAB

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing with you my FWAB second page for the month.

This is my first time using FWAB Taylah’s Toadstools and I must say, they are soooo cute!!! I just love them :)

See what I mean? Each pack of FWAB Taylah’s Toadstools has 9 toadstools - all different shapes and sizes (and some grass as well!!  I haven't use the grass on this page).

And you'll see I've used FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Olive Green as well.  Just LOVE Chloe flourishes ... must be the name ;-) ;-)

NEW FWAB flowers!!

I'm super excited to  to share my first page using the NEW gorgeous FWAB flowers!!  I fell in love with these flowers the very minute I saw them ... they are soft and pretty and oh so easy to add to ANY project!

I wanted to have some fun with this page ... a bit of masking ... a touch of texture paste .... some distressing ... and ripping ....

Just love this photo of my daughter and her cousin.  They love visiting each other!  :)
I've used the beautiful Maddison flowers in Baby Blue and Pink, and the sweet little Elise flowers in Pink and Cream.  I've swiped some Shimmerz over some of the flowers for some extra shine ...

I have also used the FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Baby Blue and  Chloe Pearl Flourish Pink, cutting them up to fit around my clusters.

Just love pink and blue together!

That's all from me today, I'll be back soon to share more projects!
Have a great week!

White with one ...

Yay, it's the weekend! :D
White With 1 ... do you know the challenge blog?  Since I am a little ... colour challenged ... I don't often play along over there ... but this month, I've decided to step outside my little square and challenge myself!  Look out for more challenge entries later!

So, this is the challenge at WW1 this month:

And here is my page ....
I had to go searching for some pistachio!!!

That background mask ... I've had it in my stash for AGES ... and I think that's the second time I've used it!! :D  Lots of other bits and pieces there that have been in my stash for ages too ... so it feels good to use some of them :).  The spotty button is a Burdy's Handmade Embellie (love these) ... and that's a Greatest View badge there too :)

Thanks for visiting!  I hope I get brave enough to play along with WW1 again soon :) :) :)

Sweet baby feet

I shared a sneak of this page a while ago and can't believe I haven't got around to sharing the whole page yet!!  It's one of my Flourish With A Bling DT pages :)

See those sweet baby feet?  They belong to one of my bestie's little girls ... when she was newborn ... aren't they just adorable??   Photo taken by my FAV photographer LaBelle Photographie ...

I’ve used soft, pretty colours and this FWAB Grace Pearl flourish in Mango was just perfect for this colour scheme!

As you can see, I’ve cut up the flourish to place it on either side of my cluster.  (I love cutting flourishes!!!  It's a habit!!)

The eye of the bird sticker is from the FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack in Red  

If you pop over to the FWAB blog today, you'll see another of my projects :D ... this time using the NEW FWAB flowers!!!   I'd love you to visit and leave a comment :) :)

Here's a little sneak:

And ... being a new month, there's a new FWAB challenge!!  See it HERE :) :)
