Sweet ‘n Sassy Hop and Giveaway

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today I am a part of the Sweet ‘n Sassy Hop with a group of very talented ladies! Please don’t forget to check them out after you watch my video, they are all linked below! I had the opportunity to use some Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi stamps for this hop. They are so adorable I even bought a couple of extra ones and there are loads more I want to buy. There is even a Sweet ‘n Sassy Hop giveaway

Firstly I made some tags for some yummy Caramel Tarts that I made using the Daffodil Block coloured with Copics. I also used my Heidi Swapp Minc to foil one of the sentiments from the Kitchen Sentiments set. I used some math to make the daffodils into tags, one was a little wonky but I fixed it.

Next I made a card with the sweetest digi, Peek-a-Boo Sophie. She’s just so adorable! I coloured her with copics too and also used the Minc to foil a sentiment from the Sentiments For Him digi set. Some of the sentiments in that set are unisex so they worked very well here.

Turtles Heart Balloons Card

Then I made another card using the Turtles Heart Ballons digi coloured again with Copics. I used some Kaisercraft With Love paper as the background and my Kodamaru corner rounder on selected layers of my image and sentiment which was from Valentine Sentiments.

Finally I made a treat box to match the previous card using the same With Love paper. Valentine Bunny with Sentiment Digi was used here and I used Copics to colour it before fussy cutting it out. I used the Some Bunny sentiment that came with the rabbit and the For the man I love from the Valentine Sentiments and foiled them red with the Minc. For a little extra pizzazz I ran some sparkly red tape around the base of the box.

Kaisercraft Escape, Island Escape and 17/9/2018 Planner Layout

Hello fellow Alchemists,

For this weeks planner layout I used the Kaisercraft Island Escape paper pad. I originally bought the large Escape and the small Island escape pads for a project but no longer need them for it… Because I wanted to give you a flip through I also  decided why not make a planner layout too. You can see a previous layout here.

If you haven’t noticed I really enjoy using matching elements from a range to do my planner layouts as it makes it nice and quick. I can also use the same range several times and get a completely different look. Quick and easy is my thing these days as I have been super busy with assignments and things I don’t usually do.

There are two downsides to the Island Escape collection for me. Firstly the large amount of woodgrain papers in the Escape 12″ pad. 14 of the 36 sheets are wood grain, overone third. Secondly most of the Island Escape Collectables are quite large so not great for planners and cards. They are more geared towards scrapbooking I think. Hope you are creating your own planner magic, see you all next time.

DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows, Constellations and Confetti Party Spotlight Haul May 2018

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today I am sharing with you a Spotlight haul I did this month with DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows, Constellations and Confetti Party as well as some Heidi Swapp goodness. I have always loved Die Cuts With a View paper stacks and spotlight has just started getting them again! You can see what I bought the same day I put this layby on here.

I got two 12″ Heidi Swapp Minc paper sets. One I hadn’t even realised had coloured pages until I opened it. I recently laybyed some foils so I can’t wait to get them and have a good play. I didn’t know that I didn’t have many in my stash until I went to make a video to show everyone some of these papers foiled in a laminator. Spotlight has Anna Griffin foils that are 12.5cm by 5m for only $3. That’s a lot of foil! They don’t have every colour available but they do have a lot and I can’t wait to get my hands on more. The naming can be a bit confusing though with one style saying matte finish. They are not really matte, the do have a nice shine they just don’t have any of the special effects others do.

I hadn’t really bought any new DCWV stacks in a few years as they had become hard to get in Australia. Spotlight has a large range again now and they are getting new ones all the time. They sell fast so keep your eyes peeled! Confetti Party is so nice and will be great for kids cards especially as will Rainbows and Unicorns. You saw my first reaction to Constellations, I hadn’t opened it before the video. It’s stunning!

Let me know in the comments what your favourite stack is. What would you make with one of these stacks? Hope you are doing some arty crafty alchemy of your own. Until next time.
