Jot Magazine - Mood Board #9

Have you seen the latest Mood Board from Jot Magazine? This gorgeous board was created with the help of fellow Jot Girl Kim Jeffress.

How stunning is it? I would be lying if I said that I thought this board would be easy to create a layout with. Yes, I loved the colours, but it is not the normal colour palette I would choose. Having said that, I love the layout I created and I would love using this combo again!

Layout Title: What a beautiful day

Products used:
Card stock: White
Paper: AC Amy Tangerine, Studio Calico, Plain vellum
Embellishments: A Piece of Cake Designs Cherry Flair button, Sassafras Lass stickers, Studio Calico bow and die cuts, Bella Boulevard Flag, My Minds Eye stickers, buttons and enamel dots, D-lish Scraps washi tape, doily. 
Other: staples, sewing machine and white thread, Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette store cut file

Close up of the title and embellishment cluster, I let the 3x4 card from the Studio Calico paper act as the title. 

Another cluster, love the Sassafras stickers I found when searching for coordinating colours.

This cut file, was actually the negative part of a sun I cut out for the recent layout I did for Scrapbooking Memories. I thought it worked perfectly with the parasol I am holding.

I will be back very soon with some more scrappy shares :)

Here's how you can enter the current mood board

Layout Share - D-lish Scraps - Happy, Busy Girl

This month means the end of my term with D-lish Scraps. We were a fortunate team as the lovely Amanda extended it for a few months, so this meant we got to enjoy our D-lish goodies for a little bit longer.

I am here today to share my latest layout I have created using D-lish Scraps goodies. For this layout I actually took photos throughout this process and have written about it in my last D-lish Scraps blog post which can be read here .

Layout title: Happy, Busy Girl

D-lish Products Used:

Other Products:
Paper: White cardstock, Echo Park patterned paper, Jillibean Soup patterned paper, Studio Calico patterned paper.
Alphabet: Jillibean Soup
Embellishments: Jillibean Soup Stickers.
Other: Prima Mask, Dylusions Mask, Mister Huey Mist, Modelling Paste, Sewing machine and thread

Love love love the new bows in the store and the Freckled Fawn stars!

My journaling and the 'love you' word bubble journal it.

The title was created with my Jillibean alpha stickers and the word happy was cut from a piece of patterned paper. 

Thanks for visiting. Check back again soon as I will have a new creative share :)

Jot Magazine - 5pm Gallery - @5pm

Today I am here to share with you a layout I created for the 5pm Gallery in the latest issue, Issue #2 of Jot Magazine.

You need to visit the below link and flick to page 96-97 to see my layout. 

For this layout I set myself a challenge to only use the 3x4" and 4x6" cards from the Pocket Page style packs that are available now from companies like MAMBI, Simple Stories, and Becky Higgins. Strictly no 12x12" patterned paper!

You can find a bit of a step by step on how I completed this layout on the Jot Blog here...

Jot Magazine - Issue #2 is now available!

Just a little plug for Jot Magazine Issue #2 which can now be seen and read here!

I have some layouts in the Storytelling, Speech Bubbles and 5pm galleries. You will notice clickable links in the descriptions of my Speech Bubbles and 5pm layouts, you can follow them and they will direct you to the Jot Blog, on there I have some step by steps on how I made the layouts :)

Grab a cuppa and enjoy!

Before I leave I want to wish my lovely husband a Happy 1st Fathers Day, my little girl is so very lucky to have him as a Daddy!
