Captivated Visions - Negative Thoughts

Hello Everyone,

I hope the jolly season is finding you all merry and happy, and enjoying time with family.

Captivated Visions released this fabulous new collection a week or so before Christmas, and it is currently on sale over at Sweet Shoppe Designs. It's a great kit for affirming some positive thoughts to yourself, or silently calling out for a break from everything. A great addition to any art journal stash.

Available here:

Let It Go
Captivated Visions | Negative Thoughts Bundle

There is a lot in this kit, and I love that I can use most of it for other scrapbooking pages that aren't related to inner emotions and thoughts.  Right now, I am tending to over-think aspects of my life. I have had a lot of disappointment lately, and now I just need to let it go, find the positive, and trust that good will come. 

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season. 😊

The Nifty Pixel - Night Before

Hello Everyone,

I am super happy to share this gorgeous new collection from The Nifty Pixel, released today over at the DigiChick, Night Before. It contains beautiful blues and corals, something a little delightfully different for a Christmas themed or wintry page.

Available here:

Available here:

For my layouts, I used photos from up to 6 years ago. Oh my goodness! The change that has occurred, even in myself (both physically and emotionally), is quite dramatic. What a difference a few years make! 

For each layout I used a Page Drafts template from the Night Before. These are super to work with. Makes creating so much easier and quicker, especially great for this time of the year.

CSI - Case File 217

Hello Everyone,

This month's major challenge over at CSI is very autumnal and has a great sketch/template from the clever Em Stafrace of The Nifty Pixel:


This challenge is also the first at CSI's new home - on a blogger format instead of a Ning site, so much easier to access and no excuse not to play along. :)

My digital layout for this challenge:
Love These Memories
Credits:
Oops, forgot to write it all down - but mainly from Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals.

The photos were taken in March 2011, autumn in the southern hemisphere.

How I solved the case:
The scheme: I used all the colours.
Evidence: woodgrain/wood, antlers, triangles, jar, animals & leaves.
Testimony: Inspiration word, 'outdoor'. 
Journaling reads: Spending time outdoors.  Climbing and hiding.  You love this old tree at the park with its old skewed branches spreading themselves out in all directions and its thick trunk low and wide to climb on.

The challenge is open until the end of the month, so plenty of time to join in. Please go to their new site to check out all the details: CSI Challenge #217.

Thanks for coming by. :)

The Nifty Pixel - Gunckel's Apothecary

Hello Everyone,

I've been away lately due to study, but am back to share the latest amazing digital collection by The Nifty Pixel, Gunckel's Apothecary:

Available here:

For this release, I decided to do some hybrid creations.  It was nice to get the scissors and glue out for a little change.  I prepared a couple of A4 sheets on PSE then printed at home on 200gm paper. I pasted the background onto manilla tags, inked around the edges, then cut out all my bits and played around. It was super fun.
Here are my tags:
 Head over to the DigiChick to see what the Creative Team have done with the kit. Their layouts are stunning. More details are also on The Nifty Pixel blog HERE, along with a freebie that you can pick up this weekend. 

Thank you for joining me today. :)

CSI - Case File 211

Hello Everyone,

Another fantastic challenge by CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) has been released. As it is the major case file, meaning it is open all month, Em Stafrace from The Nifty Pixel also provides a free template for digital scrappers, or use it as a template if you are a paper scrapper.

My layout:
Smile

How I solved the case:
Colours: I used all the colours
Evidence: solid background, stripes, book page, doily, lace, string, scallops, bookplate.
Testimony: I used the inspiration words, 'fun' and 'collect' in the journaling.

This challenge goes until the end of the month, so plenty of time to play along. :)

Thank you for popping in today.
