mixed media layout love


This has to be one of the most enjoyable layouts I have created in a long time. The whole layout came together quite quickly, besides the drying time, as there are a few layers of paint, paper texture paste and more paint. Then a few layers of embellishments! Mostly Crate paper, but have used a Kaisercraft template for the texture paste and Dina Wakely rose gold paint.


lots of Christmas cards

We had some rainy days recently and I needed some Christmas cards for all the lovely people I get to work with. I had a big stash of christmas stuff from previous years and I hate to throw things out so I pulled it all out and made a whole bunch of cute cards. I think they turned out pretty good!


There was a bunch of different things used, Kaisercraft, October Afternoon, Pinkfresh Studio, Making Memories, Heidi Swapp, along with some vintage items.

christmas cards


Ok so we have a mixture of Pinkfresh Studio and Kaisercraft, along with some random bits and pieces found in my stash.IMG_E2952

The wide cotton ribbon on the card and the wooden spool under the card is from one of my favourite shops “Provincial” its a homewares and furniture shop but they have amazing ribbon and its on the coolest wooden spools.IMG_E2969

That little deer is just the cutest! Some vellum with gold hearts that I found in my christmas stash. I have made a whole bunch of Christmas cards this week, I pulled out all my old Christmas stuff and just used what I had. I did purchase the Mint Wishes collection from Kaisercraft, so have used a bit of that. I will take pics of the other cards to share in my next post. Thanks for visiting.



Frida Kahlo, my favourite artist. I painted this with acrylic paint and added gold leaf. This was a canvas I painted for a fundraiser at our school art auction. I found this picture on Pinterest and loved it so much I decided to recreate it. Some people at the Auction said it looks like the Queen, but with flowers in her hair and those eyebrows, the Frida lovers will know who it is.

Card love tonight


Im reposting this card because it’s a favourite!

Oh how I love an embossing folder! Especially one that embosses little doilies…so sweet. Some random papers, Crate, Heidi Swapp, Authentique. All random leftovers from the previous layout.IMG_E2862

And another, in similar style with the rest of the scraps….no wasting! The gold leaf was cut on my Silhouette Cameo using a cut file from The cut shoppe and backing with vellum.

Rose gold paint by Dina Wakely is just gorgeous. Used with a Kaisercraft stencil here.

Quite a few papers and elements from old stash.


Pink flocked vellum is a very old piece I have saved for a long time. Not even sure where it came from. Some Heidi Swapp papers and Crate paper. The script paper is Authentique. Canvas frame from one of Maggie Holmes old collections for Crate paper.
