Me & Mr Sunshine

Hello Sassy Friends and happy Friday to you!

I'm sure you have seen this masking technique on layouts dotted about the web.
I have been very keen to try it out and found a great, easy to apply tutorial
to get the effect on my hybrid layout using Simple Stories 'Good Day Sunshine'.

 I initially thought I'd do an 8.5 x 11 layout and planned the image to suit. 
After it was printed, I felt it lacked punch, so I mounted it onto a sheet 
of 12x12 which I found more visually appealing. 
I love the canvass-like texture of printing onto cardstock.
The word 'Summer' is spelled out in the chipboard stickers
You can make up any combination you like :)
I've had fun playing with the viewfinders that I fussy cut 
from a fun sheet of 'Enjoy the View' paper. Some have been mounted, some chopped, you can even enjoy turning some that have brads in the centre.
If you want to give the masking effect a go,
you can click here for the tutorial and free mask download!

Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great weekend!

Enjoy the day

Hi everyone,
Anita here with more inspiration using websters pages ocean melody
This collection is absolutely perfect for our moodboard challenge this month 

I always love how calming fish can be just watching them swim around with this layout I wanted to share that same feeling I got when I took this beautiful photo of this amazing fish

I mixed some of the blue gold shimmerz inklings with some modelling paste
I used one of the image cut outs as I title I think they make great mini titles and I cut a heart from one and made a embelishment
The little letter stickers are great for using them for your date or sub title
The shimmerz inklings are great for adding colour to flowers ,leaves and your backgrounds

Pink Paislee - Solstice range

Hello Leonie here today.

I knew as soon as I saw the Pink Paislee Solstice range it was a must have!! 
 It's pretty patterns in blues, yellow and red along with the gold and glittery embellishments ensured it had everything I  could want to scrap some summery photos.  
So I went looking through my printed pictures from last January and came across this one of my children playing cricket at the beach.

Here's the page I came up with, it's a fairly simple design but I like how that highlights the papers
and the plain old fashioned fun of a day at the beach!

Here's a close up of the lovely glitter alphabet that is part of the Solstice range.
You can also see some of the light stencilling work with modelling paste and some ink splatters that I added.

I chose a few Prima flowers to add as extra embellishments, 
sticking to the blue and yellow theme I had 
going with the papers. 

The ephemera pack is filled with die cut shapes in all sorts of shapes and materials including this 
glittery sail boat.  Isn't it cute!?  
The stars pictured are part of the puffy sticker pack of summery shapes and words.

Below are links to the Pink Paislee Solstice range in the Sassy Scrapper store.

This moment is ours

Hi There!

Last weekend Hubby & I snuck away for a much need child free weekend! It was so nice & peaceful sleeping in, holding a conversation with each other without a million interruptions, you know all the little things couple without kids take for granted!!

Websters Pages Strawberry Fields has some very appropriate quotes for a nice lovey dovey page! "This moment is ours" pretty much summed up the weekend & what I wanted to say about the photo.

 Still loving the fussy cutting potential in this collection! Mixed with a Maggie Holmes bow & a Chic Tags Cloud 9 Flair button & Clip Embellishment

To add some dimension I have used lot's of foam squares to create different layers
