White with 1 - June challenge

White with 1 - June Challenge 

Here is my layout for the White with 1 
challenge this month. I love using Colour Blast 
pastes on layouts. I used Lovely Lilac as it was 
the closer of the two purple shades to Mauve. 
The warm colours in this layout are the complete 
opposite to how I was feeling before going on this 
toboggan ride... Thanks for taking the time to have 
a look at my blog. Cheers Tanya x

Handmade Cards

Handmade Cards - Kitaholic Kit

Here are a few cards I made using up 
some of the left over items from my 
June Kitaholic Kit.
These kits are awesome value. I made 
layouts plus these cards and I still 
have quite a bit of stuff left. 

Sketchy Boards June Challenge

Cute colours this month for the Sketchy Board 
Challenge, and I loved the sketch as well.
I have borrowed a friends Silhouette Cameo and 
been playing around with it. Taught myself how to 
copy an image off my computer and cut it with 
the Cameo. I am pretty impressed with how easy it 
is to use and I love the end result of my 
pizza shape circle. You will certainly see more die 
cut items on my layouts in the near future. 
Have a wonderful week. Tanya xx

Kitaholic Kits

I can't believe after all the excitement of 
being chosen to be on the design team for 
Kitaholic Kits I forgot to tell you all.

Kitaholic Kits are an Australian based Kit Club 
that deliver yummy goodies to your door each month. 
The kits that are available are: 
*Main Scrapbook Kit
*Pocket Page Kit
*Embellishment Kit
*Mixed Media Kit

Here are the first two layouts that I have done 
using kit items. I was given a few items from all 
the different kits. Jump on their website to see 
all the items in all the kits.
 My favourite items in the kit were the flower 
die cuts which I sprayed pink and the crocheted 
doily. Both I have never used before but will 
certainly use again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and please have 
little look at Kitaholic Kits facebook page 
or website for more kit information and 
inspiration. Cheers Tanya x

ARTastic - June Challenge

ARTastic - June Challenge

This is the first time I have taken part in 
an ARTastic challenge and how could I not 
with his gorgeous inspirational artwork from 
Anna Collins called Top Hat. 

Adding stripes of some sort were a must, the 
tigers strips were the first thing that grabbed 
my attention. The criteria was to use black and 
white and one other colour of our choice on 
our layout. I was really tempted to use lime green 
like the tigers eyes but I really wanted to use this 
photo of Leah and I while we were in Chicago 
on New Years Eve. So as you can see I chose the 
tangerine colour to match my scarf.

Thanks for the great challenge ARTastic and thanks 
for taking the time to look at my blog. Tanya xx

123 Challenge - June Challenge

123 Challenge - June Challenge

This months challenge was a lot of fun. 
I'm actually starting to enjoy doodling on 
my layouts, I still don't love my handwriting 
but I'm starting to except that it will be nice 
for my kids to see years to come. Now that my 
parents are no longer with us, I love seeing 
their handwriting on things.
I didn't really have a suitable 'drama' photo 
but I loved this months colour with this photo 
of my nephews daughter which is why I thought the 
title 'Its nicer to be a beauty queen than a 
drama queen' was more suitable.

Have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by 
to have a look at my blog. Tanya x

Kraft + June Challenge Guest DT

Funky Flair Studio are one of the sponsors

lucky enough to be asked to be guest designers. 

Jigsaw puzzle pieces on your kraft layout were the

My layout was embellished with altered puzzle 
pieces using fragments, micro beads and paint. 
I also used Colour Blast paste, gesso and  spray mists.
Eve from Funky Flair Studio 
made us the cute flairs just for this challenge.

Thank you to Sandra and the DT team at Kraft + for the 
opportunity to be a guest DT this month.
Thanks Eve for making me the gorgeous flair for this

Funky Flair Studio June Challenge Layout

Funky Flair June Challenge Layout

Hello! Thought I'd share with you my layout 
The mood board colours this month 
are just gorgeous and the word LOVE goes 
perfect with the colours.

I must say I'm really happy how this layout of 
Leah and Chris turned out, I've always loved 
making paper flowers but never think to put them 
on my layouts. 
The love flair was from the June 
challenge set and the arrow flair was from the 
dreamweaver set. There are lots of yummy flair 
to choose from, take a look you won't 
be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by. Tanya x
