FWAB shares for July

Hi there everyone!

I'm sharing some pages using FWAB products today ...

First up is ...


In my page titled “Miss B”, I’ve gone all flowery and pretty :).

The FWAB Jack Vine in Green was perfect to add to my cluster – I love the bright vibrant green it adds, too!  I cut it all up, adding leaves here and there, all around.  (They work really well with my paper leaves.)  I’m such a fan of cutting up vines and flourishes!


You’ll see I’ve added some FWAB flowers too – these are my favourite flowers – so many colours and different styles and sizes make clustering a breeze.  I’ve used 2 FWAB flowers on this page:  Elise flower in cream and a Maddison flower in yellow.


Spot the Goanna was created for the July challenge at Show Us Your Stuff.
The July challenge is all about nature – so I used a photo of a massive goanna we found on the farm – it always amazes me how big these animals grow!


The nature theme was perfect to add a FWAB Lee’s Tree!  How cool does it look in my cluster!
I have also used a FWAB Elise Flourish in Antique Brown, cut up and added to my cluster also.
 
 
Then, you’ll see some FWAB Black Adhesive Pearls scattered around the page.
 
 
I kept my FWAB products to earthy, natural colours and they all match perfectly to the theme of my page :)
*
XOXO is a Christmas page using non-traditional colours – I’m a bit of a fan of non-traditional :).
 
 
I’ve added lots of FWAB Adhesive Pearls in Teal all over my page – lots in groups of 3 for visual appeal, and some on top of other embellishments.
 
 
 
Then, if you look carefully, I’ve tucked some FWAB Nicky’s Beach Huts under my layers!  It’s fun to think outside the box with FWAB products, they don’t always have to be used for a set theme :).
 
 
 
These red beach huts were a perfect match for my colour scheme, and they look a bit like cool arrows when they are just peeking out of the layers.
 
Have a great week, everyone!

July SC sketch

Hello and welcome to July!  We have officially started the last half of the year - isn't it just flying by :/ ... anyway, a new month means new challenges!!

Check out this month's fab sketch at Scrapping Clearly:


This one was really easy to work with ...


I have used the awesome YOU ROCK range by Cocoa Vanilla Studios again - it's such a fun versatile range!  The colours are great for boy pages!


I only added the gold ink just before I glued everything down - I thought it needed so extra texture - this was perfect :) ... I just applied it randomly with a scraper ...



Hope you can play along with this sketch!!

Cocoa Vanilla You Rock – Chipboard Accent Stickers
Cocoa Vanilla You Rock – Die Cut Ephemera

FWAB team!

You might have noticed, I'm on the FLOURISH WITH A BLING team again!!  I loved loved LOVED my time with them before - such a lovely supportive team to be on.  When Maggie asked me back again, of COURSE I said YES!!

So, here are my first two pages designing for them:


My first page “Mr Handsome”, features our much loved family pooch … he seems to be getting quite a few of his own pages lately! I have used a FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish Black and cut it in half to fit on either side of my cluster.



I get a bit scissor happy with my flourishes, but I love that cutting them up can make them fit perfectly and change the look to make each page unique. The slightly glittery look of this flourish really makes it POP on a project!

My next layout “Sweet”, I have kept the page bright and cheery to highlight the sweet little chicken my daughter is holding.



I have used a range of FWAB products on this page. Firstly, a gold FWAB Elise flower, I have cut up a FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Gold into a few smaller pieces to fit them around my cluster. Lastly, I have used a flower from the FWAB Maddison Flowers 3pk – Yellow as my focal point for my page – I love how soft and pretty these flowers are!


I am so enjoying creating with FWAB again - a BIG thank you to Maggie and the FWAB team for inviting me back :) :)
