October 2016 Jot Mood Board

It's new mood board time over at Jot and this one is delicious!!!


Jot Girl Raquel has put this gorgeous mood board together for us this month.  I'm in love those pretty sorbet colours!!!!

Here's what I came up with for my page...


I took my inspiration from the beautiful colour combination, the yellow stripes and the touch of floral too.


I used a mix of Crate Paper Cute Girl and Maggie Holmes Gather collections for my page...the colours were perfect for this mood board!   The 'Today' stamp is from Elle's Studio, the hearts stamp is from Kikki K and the letter stickers are some older Basic Grey.


Check out the Jot Blog to see the gorgeous pages the other Jot Girls have come up with for this challenge...and while you're there you can read up on how you can join in too!


We can't wait to see what you come up with!  Happy scrapping!

Jot Mood Board Challenge September 2016

Have you seen the September mood board challenge over at Jot?  I love that this one is a little different with it's Aztec designs and lovely colour combo!

 I found some gorgeous pink patterned paper that had the perfect design to match this board and then the rest of my page fell into place from there...

This photo of Madison with her finger knitted scarves was perfect for this page and colour combination.  I took my inspiration from the Aztec designs, textures, the colour combo and the little balls of yarn in the board when I was creating my layout. 


I even found a little butterfly with Aztec inspired wings...so cute!



See what the other Jot Girls have come up with for this board HERE and you can join in too!

Happy scrapping!

Jot Issue 14 Layout Share

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd share another layout that I created for Issue 14 of Jot Magazine.  This one was so fun to make and took me a little out of my comfort zone which is always a good thing right? 


I used a stencil that I bought in a pack at Typo ages ago, grabbed some of my fave paint colours and here's what I came up with...


I used texture paste with my stencil first, then when it was dry I simply painted straight over the top to create this fun look...


I really should reach for my stencils more often!  I have lots in my stash and just don't use them enough. 


Oh and while I'm here...there will be a new issue of Jot released on a few days time so make sure you keep an eye out for it!  I can't wait to see it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

July 2016 Jot Mood Board Challenge

It's that time again...time for another gorgeous Jot Mood Board Challenge!  YAY!


Jot Girl Kim J put this one together and it's just so perfectly her with all that yummy sunshiny yellow!  I couldn't wait to get started on this one...yellow always makes me happy. :D

Here's what I came up with...

I decided to scrap this pic of the kids and I that my hubby snapped on Mother's Day this year.  I really should get more photos of myself with them...I don't often think to pop into the photos too.


I had loads of yellow bits and pieces in my stash (because it's one of my fave colours to scrap with!) so I had no trouble gathering all my goodies together.  I used a swipe of yellow paint for my background and then layered everything together under my photo, added some enamel dots and hearts, my title, journaling and it was done. :)


As always we really hope you'll join in the challenge!  It's always fun to see how different everyone's entries are using the same mood board.  You can see all the details HERE along with more beautiful samples from the other Jot Girls.

Happy scrapping!

Jot Issue 14 Project Share...

Hello everyone!

Today I thought I'd share one of the layouts I created for Issue 14 of Jot.  I thoroughly enjoyed putting this page together for a couple of reasons...because I really loved these photos of Madi doing her finger knitting and recording this memory on paper...but also because I finally got my hands on some of the totally gorgeous Pink Paislee Fancy Free Collection!!! 


Oh this collection is just so pretty...and everything co-ordinates together so perfectly!  It's a new fave of mine for sure....LOVE!!! <3 p="">

Madi was so proud of herself when she mastered finger knitting and created her very own scarf...and I was a super proud crafty Mum!!!  She ended up making numerous scarves all in one weekend because she just couldn't stop!  It was so fun to see her creating and enjoying herself so much. :)


This page appears in the Story Telling Gallery in the current issue of Jot Magazine. :)


If you haven't already...grab a cuppa and read Issue 14 of Jot Magazine for free HERE on the Jot website.  It's just the thing you need for some crafty inspiration!

June 2016 Jot Mood Board

Have you seen the new Jot Mood Board yet?  So lovely and white with a touch of green and some black stripes too....I love it!


This board was put together by Jot Girl Lauren...another fabulous mood board to work with!  Here's what I came up with...


This was my Mum and I on Mothers' Day this year.  It's not very often that we think to snap a photo of the two of us but I'm glad we did this time!  This page fell together on the page SO easily with bits and pieces I already had on my desk...love it when that happens. :)


I finally got my hands on a pair of fringing scissors too so they were fun to play with!


We'd love for you to join in the challenge too!  You can find all the details on the Jot website HERE and see gorgeous samples from the other Jot Girls too. ;)

Happy scrapping everyone!

May 2016 Jot Mood Board Challenge...

It's the beginning of a new month which means we have a brand new Mood Board Challenge over at Jot...yay!  Jot Girl Sharmaine has done such a great job putting this one together.  It's so different with it's moody feel and greys and blues...it's fantastic!


When planning my page I took my inspiration from the grid of floppy discs on the right side of the mood board and went with the computer theme.  I also loved the greys and blues with the little pops of red in the board too.


My boys just love playing Minecraft together on their computers so this photo was perfect for this project.  I used the grid transparency to represent the grid in the mood board and added pops of red to my grey/blue combo.


If you'd like to join in the challenge with us this month you'll find all the details HERE on the Jot Blog along with more gorgeous inspiration from the other Jot Girls.  We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Happy scrapping!

April 2016 Jot Mood Board


Hello everyone! Have you seen the totally inspiring April Jot Mood Board yet?  Oh my goodness this has to be one of my favourites...isn't it pretty!?



I love the freshness of this board and the pops of yellow and pink and just a hint of sparkle!  Here's what I came up with...

It's not often that Madi and I get to have a girls day out but this particular day we had a lovely time shopping and spending time together.  Madi thought it was pretty fancy having a 'coffee' and cake together!  Well...I had the coffee and she had a babyccino. LOL  It was so fun!

Anyway...for my layout I took my inspiration from the gorgeous colour combo, the glittery shoes, the gold letters, the flowers and I even managed to squeeze an xoxo on my page too.

Check out all the details of how you can join in the challenge too HERE on the Jot website...we LOVE seeing your pages!!!  You'll also see more sample pages from the other Jot Girls too.

Happy scrapping!

Stamping and Watercolours...

Today I'm sharing a card with you that I created by following a fun new tutorial by Jot Girl Meghann.  The tutorial shows you a great technique using stamps and watercolour to create beautiful effects.  You can see the tutorial for yourself HERE on the Jot website!

Here's what I came up with...


I used super cute cactus stamps from Lawn Fawn for my design.  The set it called 'Stuck On You'... aren't they adorable?


Grab your favourite stamps and watercolours and head on over to Jot to try this fun technique yourself!

Chipboard elements have always been a favourite of mine to use on my pages.  It comes in so many different colours, sizes and shapes...it's just so versatile! 

For my layout I've used a mix of chipboard alphas, speech bubble and bird embellishments.
