Brentwood's Beach Party Blog Hop.........

May 23rd 2015
Welcome to the Start of Summer Design Team Showcase Blog Hop created by the JessicaLynnOriginal June 2015 – January 2016 Design Team!

Today we are featuring projects using the "Brentwood Owl's Summertime Fun" Stamp that really showcase and introduce our members! This fun stamp captures that summer vacation or holiday feel and can be used in many ways and this image is available FREE for one day only (May 23rd) so get along to the JessicaLynnOriginal Store and grab him for yourself!!

 Put your feet up and grab a cool drink to sip as you travel along the hop, getting inspired by the different takes from each of our designers.

I've made 2 creations for the hop - just love this first nice bright card for Brentwood's Beach Party - Background design from the Cupcake Cuties Etsy Store - a perfect image for my Silhouette Cut Surfboards and "party" sign! Brentwood coloured with Copic Markers. Makes me feel warm and summery as it's coming into winter here in Australia!

My second creation is a page in one of my journal's and I just had to add another JLO stamp - "Ruby" in her polka dot bikini joining the beach fun LOL!!! I used some gritty texture paste on the background of this page so it looked like real sand and water froth. Added some die cuts from Kaisercraft which are perfect for the tropical holiday beach theme!

This Way Up.......

May 22nd 2015
New release time at SLS Lines - new images available at The Store and you can see the DT inspiration at the SLS Lines Challenge Blog!

Now I just love this "nerdy" looking guy LOL - he was great to colour and create with. I added Diamond Glaze to his glass for some dimension and to make them look like real glasses! Tag background is old book pages and card scrap plus ink sprays and some fun little stamps I had that were perfect for my "This Way Up" theme!

Remember we always have a monthly challenge happening at the blog so pop over and get something created - our current challenge has a "Fantasy Twist" so let's see what you can create!

Priceless Beauties......

May 21st 2015
I'm sharing a new creation made for two of my DT's today - a mini journal/booklet using papers/accessories from Tsunami Rose and Digi Nude Pin Up Girls from SLS Lines Colouring Booklet - thought the "nudes" were a perfect match for the amazing papers from Tsunami Rose!

Extras added were laces, braids, brads, flowers, Silhouette die cuts, muslin/cheesecloth fabric, charms etc. - just love how it all turned out. These nudes are so tasteful I can't help wanting to create with them all the time! The front & back cover and pages were cut on my Silhouette and once I had decorated both sides of each page I put hinge rings from Officeworks through the cut holes to secure it into a mini book. I distressed most of the edges of all the papers and used a red inkpad to add some colour - incidentally after all this inking my stamp pad is now "done" LOL!

Here are the links to all items used so you can check them out along with all of the other amazing products in both stores!

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my little booklet - the many hours spent were worth it - I still have some of the Tsunami Rose papers left as there are so many elements in the printable kit that I couldn't use them all so a great excuse to create some more and I actually printed double of the Pin Up Gals too so looks like more "risqué" creations coming up soon!

Harlequin or Diamonds

May 20th 2015

We have Sweet Pea Stamps as our sponsor for this "Harlequin or Diamonds" Themed Challenge this week at Wicked Wednesday! The image I chose is one by Ching Chou Kuik called "Misty Allure" - she is lovely and I thought she was perfect for the harlequin/Diamonds theme. Background is a Tim Holtz Stamp embossed with a gorgeous "Wow" purple glitter embossing powder I bought recently - so sparkly! Image coloured with Copics and added some feather charms to her wing and some glitter glue to her mask and hair. I'm a great fan of the artists and images available at Sweet Pea Stamps so loved creating for this challenge!


May 19th 2015

The new challenge at the Tag Along Blog for this week is "Metallic"!! So I got the alfoil out of the pantry and ran it through my Big Kick with a great clock/gears Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and wrapped my manila tag with the foil for a great silver background. I had a gears/cogs die cut from my silhouette left over from another creations so I embossed that with a gorgeous purple glitter powder.

I took 2 pics to show the shiny/metallic look. Just love this gorgeous Sandra Caldwell digi from Sweet Pea Stamps - this is also the freebie image for the FB Group Progressive Challenge!

SLS Lines "Fantasy" Challenge!

May 15th 2015

What a great challenge we have this month at the SLS Lines Challenge Blog - "Fantasy" - love this theme! And this "Celestial Goddess" image is just so perfect for this theme!! I could not resist colouring her hair all different shades! Background card is a bit of mixed media - sprays and texture paste along with some sheer fibre, sequins and little bead letters "Dream"!

We look forward to seeing your entries in this new challenge - remember you don't have to use a SLS Lines image but it would be great if you did there are sooooo many quirky designs to choose at the Etsy Store!!!!
