Our Journey – Simple Scrapbooking Layout

Today I am sharing a layout, a little out of my style, flat, not much lift, lots of layers but flat. It’s not always about how much you can get on the page, but the memories and the meaning behind the page. “Our Journey” is about that. The kids and I went on a journey. As Maksim would say “1/2 way around the world”. It was maple syrup season here and Adam was unable to go with this time, so lets just make this one big adventure and jump the pond. Just me and the kids.


A fun adventure out with our good friend Andy and the kids. Not only did we have a wonderful dinner at a posh restaurant this night,  a proper pub, we had a good time just seeing the sights and getting those photo ops in.

I made a quick video of the transformation of the page

Here are a few close-ups


With some subtle background stamping with the Distress Script Stamp, and the Distress Crackle Stamp, I then used some texture paste with the Paint Stencil.


I added the title with the Journey Word Set. 

A clean and simple page that reminds me of the many adventures on our journey 1/2 way around the world, Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy!

Tres Joile Kit Club-Memory Lane Card Set

Hi again, Heather here sharing another set from the June Card Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. This set I decided to go with a set of cards. I usually make two sets, a girl can never have enough cards. You never know when that special occasion will pop up and you need to rummage for that one special card.

I made a video of how these came together.

Here a few close-ups of the cards. I love the beautiful blooms that came in the kit. Perfect for this set.


I used the frame from the main kit and heat embossed for that special shimmery look.

The stitched look adds a little extra texture to the cards.

I hope you enjoy~! Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Memories ~ Tres Jolie Kit Club

Hello All, today I want to share another page I made with the Tres Jolie Main Kit. I also added a few extras that came in the card kit. This is a picture of Maksim and I.  We had a night on the town while visiting over in England. A proper pub, a posh restaurant and the English hospitality and warmth.

I based this page of the sketch that Kim made for the June Kit.

TJ June Sketch.jpg


I made a short video of the creative process, and the evolution of this page.

Here are a few close ups…..


Textured background


Using various die-cuts from my stash, I used the 13@rts paper to add layers to the photo composition, along with fussy cutting elements from the “All Good Things”


We made so many happy memoires on our latest trip and the sketch gave me the inspiration to capture one of them. We hope to see you play along with the sketch this month with the fabulous June Kit.


Thank you for stopping today.

Create Art Paint Palette

Sharing a fun project today, an altered paint palette with lots of Creative Embellishment goodies. I have had this palette for awhile and just not sure what to do with it. So I grabbed some brushes and started to get the base down of what I wanted it to look like.


I have a video I made of the process.


Through various layers of paint and stamping, I build up the palette with some of my favourite stamps and stencils. Starting with the distressed checkered stamp and distress numbers stamp.

Using the Heart Flourish Corner I cut it apart to add to various areas of the project. With lots of layer I get it ready to paint.

I made a video of the creative process for you. I used elements from both the main kit along with the cards kit.

 Here are a few close-up

Adventure Awaits ~ 7 Dots Studio

Hi, today I want to share a layout I made from our trip to Holland. An Adventure Awaited us, just me and the kids, which was an adventure in itself. We went to visit my good friend Laneen and her family. In the short visit we had there, the many adventures we had. This picture was at the Nederlands Openlucht Mueseum. I was just fascinated at the pure beauty of windmills. _MG_4681.JPG

I made a video of the evolution of this page, using one of my favourite collections Fortune-teller.

 We had an amazing time and I cant thank Laneen and her family enough for opening their hearts and home up to us.

Here are some more close-ups.



Thank you for stopping.

Domestic Goddess Tags ~ 7 Dots Studio

Another stunning mood board with so much inspiration. So bold and daring, I wanted to do it and push myself out of my comfort zone. Reds are a hard colour to pull off, But I love how these tags came out.


I was deciding between the Yuletide collection and the Domestic Goddess collection, after much thought I went with the Domestic Goddess. The colours match perfect with the inspiration colours. I took inspiration from the flower photos, and added the flowers on the tags to focus on the centre portion of each tags.

Nick's version june 2018

After using some background stamping with the Lost and Found and Northnern Lights clear stamps. I used the Wonkey Halftone Mask to get the texture and feel.


I made a video of the creative process and evolution.
