Licks of Love for Flutterby Designs

Hi.  I'm back.
I have another share featuring the super cute Fur-Ever Friends range.  We have 3 fur babies in our family, so I have plenty of photos that this range is perfect for.
I have gelli printed my background.  I used Arctic White Flutter Colour paint on my background.  The Hugs & Kisses stencil has been used with a very dry layer of Black Mayhem Flutter Colour.

This week my page is staring the gorgeous Miss Willow May.  I took these photos while I was getting ready for work one day.  She's sitting on my bed watching me with her tennis ball just looking at me with her big brown eyes, wanting me to play fetch.

The Eat Sleep Play photo tag is perfect for Miss Willow.  I'm pretty sure she's 2% play, 8% eat and 90% sleep.

This range has so many gorgeous quotes.  I could have filled the whole page with apt titles.   

Hope you've been inspired ♥

Sparkle, for Flutterby Designs

Hi everyone, today I'm back with a page featuring one of my cutie pie nieces and some Mad About You filler cards.

I have used the I {heart} You stencil for my background.  Tropicana Teal Flutter Colour was applied over this with a makeup wedge.

I have stamped some cards with a couple of my favourite stamps and did a little fussy cutting, layering some of them up with coordinating cards.   Some stitches stamps and I have turned them into cute little flowers.

I layered one of my fave flair buttons with the flowers and it just looks like part of the little garden.

Some Enamel Dots have been popped around my sentiment and the Flutter colour has been applied with a paint brush to colour the border stamps.  Putting borders around my focal points is one of my favourite ways of finishing a layout.

Hope you've been inspired.

I ♥ you the mostest, Kraft plus

My layout is based around a book I used to read Jord when he was younger.  I sacrificed some jeans, added some chipboard and stamps and a Flutterby Design photo tab.

Pop over to the blog to see all the gorgeous DT and guest designers creations.  Super inspired plus lots of awesome prizes again this month.

Hi Flutterby fans.  
Today I bring you a bright colourful page featuring me.
Firstly I put down some moulding paste with the You've Got This stencil.  This has been heat dried so that it would have a puffy look.   Love the empowering words that are a part of this stencil.  I then pulled out the Bombay Ink and added lots of water.  The ink is such a bright vivid colour.

My photo stack has been made up with Everday Etc cards from the Blank Palette range.  This is perfect for bright backgrounds because it doesn't matter what colours you choose, the black and white of this set goes with anything.

I outlined the word incredible with a water colour pencil to make it stand out from all the other words on my background.   There's been a couple of Enamel Dots and the censored sticky quote placed over the sentence enhancer to add another little embellishment to the page. 

A few little self motivating quotes from the White Tiny Sticky Quotes finish off my layout.

Love ya guts, Flutterby Designs

Hi everyone.  My page today features the gorgeous Wild Bohemian Everyday Etc Filler cards.   This is one of my fave ever collections.  Awesome colours and the patterns.  
My background started with a little stamping and water colours.

I love a lot of 'white space' on a layout and this collection is perfect for these types of pages.  Lots of little elements that can be cut out.
I've cut little chevrons, some stitching and a black arrow and layered them in a little photo stack.

On top of the cluster I have used another fave, Love ya guts flair button.  I am a little in love with this button.  There's a cute little Page Tab poking out the top. 

My layout has been finished off with a little cluster down the bottom corner to balance my page.  Again I have just used elements cut from the filler cards and spread a few enamel dots around my page.

Hope you've been inspired ♥

You're my person, Flutterby Designs

Hi there, Ros here today to share a layout that I have created using the Mad About You collection.

After slapping down a few colours of paint I have used the Hugs and Kisses stencil with some moulding paste.  You can see that I have done this under where my photo cluster is sitting and also on the opposite side of the page.  This give my layout some balance.
I also added a few splashes of black Flutter Colour to the background.

I was a little stuck at first with this collection cause I don't have a person.  It didn't take long to realise that it really doesn't matter.  This collection is perfect for any of my loves.

For my cluster I have cut some of the filler cards into different sizes and layered them together.  Along the edge of this is some of the gorgeous little Page Tabs.  My photo is sitting inside the gorgeous Mad About You frame.

I have also cut some of the filler cards into some little banners to poke into the photo stack.  This has then been finished off this a super cute flair button.

Right at the bottom of the layout I have matted the words cut from one of the filler cards onto some more little banners.

Hope you've been inspired ♥

Hi everyone!!
It's my first share for Flutterby Designs.
If I said I was excited to be part of the Flutterby team, it would be a huge understatement. I'm so excited to be part of this team that I ended up creating 6 projects to share.  I got a little carried away, but once I started I couldn't stop.

For my first share I decided to show you a couple of Christmas pages I created using the Dec Documented 2016 range.

My page began with one of my fave techniques.  I laid down some moulding paste with the Stargazed stencil.  After this I sprinkled embossing powder over top and heat dried.  This gives the moulding paste a puffy enamel look. It's also an awesome way of getting colour on your background without any water.

For my photo stack I have taken various elements from the Everday Etc Cards and layered them.  I used one of my favourite punches to add  a different visual to one of the cards, and popped a Page Tab in amongst the layers.

The little santa hat is from the Sticky Quotes, and by adding a little snip with my scissors I have been able to have the hat sitting behind my photo with the pom pom hanging over the front.

Some words from the Sticky Quotes have been used here.  They've been cut into separate words and outlined with white gel pen.  The little heart has been taken from one of the Everyday Etc cards.  My layout has been finished off with a Christmas Tree wood veneer, painted to match the cards and a Flair Button.

I started my second page with the same background technique.  This time I used the I {heart} You stencil with embossing powder.

I always make my little photo stacks as a separate embellishment to my page.  This way I can change them around, add more to the background or change whereabouts on my page I want it to sit.  

Once I had all my layers cut out and stacked up here, I felt that the photo was disappearing a little on the page.  To solve this I've taken some Black Mayhem Flutter Colour Paint and swiped it across the background with an old rewards card.

It definitely did the trick and the photo cluster is now popping off the page.

My page has been finished off with a few Enamel Dots and a Flair Button.

Thanks heaps for visiting my first share.  Hope you've been inspired ♥
