I am really loving the new line Neapolitan by American Crafts! Lots of springy colours, pinks, yellows, oranges. There is also some fantastic paper that has strips of ruffled tissue paper! LOVE it. I used it on this layout: (Excuse the photo - not quite enough light!)
The colours completely matched those used at my cheeky niece's 4th birthday party last year! I matched up the American Crafts paper with some of the Victoria Park line from Lily Bee. It has been awhile since I did a double page spread, I need to do it more often!!
Looking forward to this year's party Anna! Hope it is as fun as last years!! xo

This is a little 6 x 6 mixed media canvas, that I made for a class I taught last March at Scrappin' Great Deals. Mix up some Prima paper and masks, along with some Tim Holtz inks, stamps, stains and tissue paper, add in a Unity Stamp, and you get a vibrant piece of inspiration for your studio!

This is my second layout from Scrappin' Great Deals' May Scrapbooking Kit. My two boys having so much fun with water, chalk and a scrap piece of wood. Little artists in the making, so I go a little artsy with my layout! Lots of misting; I made my own stencil of a "paint splat", and sprayed some glimmer mist through it, then outlined them in black. I also made some splats with pumpkin coloured smooch ink on white cardstock, covered it in glossy accents for dimension and cut them out to add to the layout. My Tim Holtz alpha mask was used for the word "create" in my title. I also used my WRMK Sew Stamper to add the cross hatching around the layout. A few different Tim Holtz stamps were also used for the background. I coloured the white Thickers with the same pumpkin coloured smooch ink. LOVE my smooches!!
A couple close ups:
Enjoy your day, and I hope to see you tomorrow out at Scrappin' Great Deals to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day!!

It's that time of the month again!! Scrappin' Great Deals' May Scrapbooking Kit will be released this week. Sheila and I played with the kits during our weekend retreat at Woodeden a few weeks ago.
Here is the kit, it's theme: "Colours of the Rainbow":
Here is my first layout to share:
Oh So Lovely Ladies!
I layered the background with Basic Grey, White Cardstock and lastly American Crafts Vellum. Some Prima flowers, Pebbles Candy Dots, a Prima Art Tile, American Crafts Fabric Brad, lots of layers!! The American Crafts Thickers included in the kit are white foam, and I coloured them with Peridot Mixed Media Ink. The pink floral burst border is punched from an EK Success punch and is included in the kit. The white scroll border, is also an EK Success punch,(not included in kit).
Another note: Remember that it is NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY on Saturday, May 5, 2012!!
