Play, laugh, grow

Life marches on to the sound of it's own drum and looking at this photo of my gorgeous niece and nephew, I realise just how quickly time is flying.

Speaking of flying, I have just returned from an incredible teaching experience at Escape2Create in Port Lincoln. Eighty beautiful, creative women all under one roof... You can imagine how inspiring it was! I am so thankful to have been a part of it.

This Crate Craft Market paper has to be seen to be believed. It is amazing! The glitter is actually incorporated into the paper itself. It was very hard not to just squirrel it away in my stash!

I started on the base layer with a large gesso scraping. I am quite enjoying a bit of messiness at the moment! Over that, I have adhered some torn Heidi Swapp lace paper (the triangular one from the pack) and then building up layers from there.

I've fussy cut lots of stars from a sheet of Crate 'Process' paper and used them as embellishments. I have grouped a couple and over the top, I have adhered a sequin frame from the new Heidi Swapp 'Wanderlust' collection. Over the top I have popped some WRMK adhesive sequins (my fave embellie at the mo!)

I cut a Simple Stories viewfinder wood veneer for another project and had this bit to hand. I have coloured it to suit this project using Navy and Mint Color Shine.
Little rhinestones finish off the page.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Wishing you a fantastic weekend!

My Heart - Anita Bownds

Hi everyone,
Happy Thursday !! 
Today I'm sharing a layout I created of my best buddy Kush
Doing what he loves most stalking me lol we call it crazy mode cause he runs 
Flat stick through the house each morning for about 10 minutes .
I started off by choosing the lovely Aqua stripped patterned paper
And trimming my white cardstock down to fit with a patterned paper border 
I punched a few butterfly borders on the top and bottom of my white cardstock 

And then I machine stitched a border around the edge and ruffled the edges up
I flicked more gold mist across the page adding big and little droplets 
Next I started on my layers behind my photo 

I really wanted to have the big gold polka dots to be my first layer
Then I added that lovely Aqua patterned paper
And matted my photo on the dark blue polka dot patterned paper 

I used one of the memory Dex cards and popped it behind my matted photo 
I die cut a doily and added it behind my layers as with my handmade tag
I used a heart template and cut a heart shape out of the middle of the 5x7 lace paper and backed it with patterned paper then I added my title using the sticker and gold foil
And little butterflies with rhinestones and pen trails .

Don't forget our moodboard is ending next Tuesday 
Got to be in it to win it!!

Prima Marketing Stencils

Hello and welcome to the Sassy Scrapper blog.
Leonie here today and I'm sharing again using the Prima stencils available instore HERE.

I used the stencil below called Fading Floral and Modelling paste on my page today.
It's such a pretty stencil.

Prima 6x6 inch Stencil - Fading Floral

Prima Art Basics Modelling Paste Opaque Matte 236ml

Here's my page.

For this page I used water based spray inks to add colour to my background 
and once it was dry I used the stencil and modelling paste to add the floral pattern over the top 
of the coloured background.   It can help to break up and soften background colours that 
may be too bright or standing out too much.

 I like the effect this method achieves by creating a subtle white pattern on top 
of the colour.  It blends together with the white cardstock and creates some interesting texture.

When my background was finished I trimmed it down a little and sewed it onto a yellow piece of cardstock to provide some contrast and a border.
Then I used the Simple Stories 'I Am' papers and stickers below to embellish my page.

Thanks for stopping the Sassy Blog today I hope I've provided you with another 
way to use your stencils. 

Cheers, Leonie Neal-Dawson

Hello Sassy Friends!

Another week done and dusted already... I hope it has treated you well!
 As this post comes to you, Leanne and I are preparing to meet some of our very favourite scrappy friends, in person at Escape 2 Create!! We've looked forward to this weekend for so very long, and now finally it is here!

My page today captures my little scallywags, hanging upside down, off the edge of our bed. They shared a little joke and broke out in fits of giggles, mainly because they looked even funnier being upside down! It's incredibly heartwarming to see them sharing moments like this.

The base patterned paper is from the new Maggie Holmes 'Craft Market' collection. It grabbed me as soon as I saw it in the shop! It has influenced me to do some stitching in different areas on my page.

On top of the paper, I have laid the spotty design Heidi Swapp lace paper. For some interest, I have sprayed two shades of Color Shine over the top. The look isn't as strong as I would've liked, as the mist didn't absorb into the paper as I thought it would, but it still gives a lovely coloured sheen.

I popped a brad into the top left corner and then, using it as an anchor for my thread, I went about stitching randomly, using the holes as guides, imitating the string art pattern on the paper below.

 To finish this bit off, I have popped lots of different size brads in the holes. I really like the effect and it ties in nicely with the printed needle holes on the stitched patterned paper.

The right side uses a strip of the 'Hand Painted' paper, which I have folded into itself and then stiched down. The edge I have punched with an American Crafts heart pattern border punch.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope your next click, will be through to the shop to check out the incredible new stock that has arrived this week!

Have a great weekend
