Twinkle Twinkle - Pink Paislee Yuletide

Hello Sassy Friends!

It's really hit me how quickly this year has flown. In a few weeks we will be saying good bye to school friends and looking forward to Santa's return. 
When I was at school we always had an end of year concert. One event has always stayed with me - my final year of kindergarten, when I was lucky enough to score the role of the star at the top of the Christmas tree. I was absolutely ecstatic, as I had admired the glittering costume and desperately wanted it to be mine... Proof that dreams can come true! ;)

Inspired by my star headband in the photo, I fished out as many stars as I could find in my Yuletide ephemera pack and complemented them some fine star stamping, rub-ons and a gorgeous big glittery star (which I recently re-homed, hehe.) The pack contains both paper and clear shapes. Those can be tricky to apply, but using Scrapbook Adhesives Adhesive sheets, it's a breeze! 

You can see a little video on how to use the sheets by clicking here

The word 'remember' is a foiled sticker from the collection. These stickers are stunning in real life. Beautifully translucent, they would look stunning over an image.

To compliment the glittering star, I've masked off half a paper star with washi and added glitter to the other half.

I'm sure you will agree that these enamel shapes are totally adorable! Another product that looks amazing in real life. I'm going to have to try hard to not hoard those candy canes!

Every star needs a tree... this tree clip was the perfect finishing touch.

If you are wanting to make a start on your Christmas projects, then you must make your merry way to the Sassy store, which is packed full of festive treats!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

2 Beautiful 4 Words

Ooooh the Sassy Store is bursting with so much delicious new stock, I couldn't help but create when my box of goodies arrived this week. I treated myself to some gorgeous new Maggie Holmes 'Shine' and some super lush new My Mind's Eye 'My Story'
The gold foil details are oh so pretty.

Here is a page I created using Shine. There isn't anything not to LOVE about this line. 
The bright colours, the geometric hints and pops of glitter were all calling my name!

These chipboard thickers are not only gorgeously on trend, I can see colouring possibilities in them. Aaack, maybe I should've bought two packs...

I've fussy cut some numbers out of a sheet of Shine 'Memento' 
to create the title. I've also hinted at the sweet glittery florals in the collection by stamping with this Dear Lizzy stamp and then heat embossing with AC gold glitter embossing powder.

Here I've folded over the strip of paper that hung over the edge and snipped the end to create a banner. A couple of lines of machine stitching bring the background to life.

Grab a coffee and hop to the shop. What does Loreal say, 'You're worth it'? Trust me, we are! (And then hide the receipt, haha!)

Have a great weekend!

Capturing Life

Hello Sassy friends

Sheesh it feels like it's been a fair while since I popped anything up... as you know it is a very sad time for our dear Olga and family but the shop is up and running again and there is SOOOOO much yummy new stock in store. I for one, can not wait for the post man next week! :)

I created a couple of pages before the school holidays and have finally had chance to shoot them. My little Madam features in both... snippets of life captured, like a visit to the optometrist which saw her being fitted for her first pair of specs.

I gratefully re-homed some seriously cute stamps recently and they definately played a big part in these pages. I couldn't wait to play with them! This stitching was done with an Amy Tangerine stitching template and I've messed around with a white pen on the chipboard alphas to tie in with the 'not quite perfect' theme.

A bit of a mix of Simple Stories 'I Am' & 'Daily Grind' elements, together with some cool optical elements from Maggie Holmes.

 This next page uses these gorgeous Heidi Swapp numbers which are too perfectly coordinated with 'I AM' to pass up. The spotty cut file is from JustNick and it was actually a test page which I had cut and kept aside. Layering it over the Maggie Holmes Confetti paper had such a playful feeling, with the little stamps and small elements, it was perfect for capturing my very cheeky five year old!

Happy and fearless - that's my DD to a T right now! There's a real mix of tiny stamps going on on that white cardstock. Heidi's mini stamps work perfectly for this look. You could even just doodle randomly and really personalise it.

Make a date with fun stamps like these this weekend:

Christmas Time Layout with Anita

Today I'm sharing another Christmas themed project 
With my layout this week I chose to use lots of blues tones with pops of colour
from the tis the season collection from cocovanilla studio. 
I went with a simple design with lots of white space that I like

I used strips of patterned paper for bold colour at the top and bottom of my layout and I ended up cutting up one of the 3x4 cut apart cards as my title.
And I used a die to cut the stars to use both behind my photo and to decorate my page

I also added a few die cuts from the ephemera pack along with some other embellishments from the collection 

So pop on over and check out the love Christmas collection by Cocovanilla
