Happy New Year!!!
Welcome to the first blog post of 2016!!
I am thrilled to be the first to share in this brand new year. And with two stunning collections, this year is starting with a bang!!
TRUE LOVE is such a fresh and pretty collection with a touch of edgy black thrown in.
I have three lovely layouts using this collection to share with you, so let’s get started.
‘So Sweet’ Layout
I have die cut my title and the swirl flourishes from the brand new Lucky Dip Cork Stack Adhesive Sheets. I LOVE this new product and it worked really well with the dies.
Here’s a closer look.

There are just so many pretty elements to love in this collection! I cut the gorgeous Wreath Specialty Die Cut Paper in half for this layout and then fussy cut some extra flowers from the remaining half.
The combination of pink and orange is so fresh and lovely too and co-ordinated perfectly with that butterfly painted on my daughter’s cheek.

‘Perfect Happiness’ Layout
Green and white is such a beautiful, crisp combination for my last layout and the touch of black in the die cuts and stickers adds the perfect touch.

And now for the second collection: # me.
This is such a fun collection with a combination of pretty florals, fun and funky icons and lots of inspirational quotes.
‘I Am Me’ Layout
I have gone for a grungy style on this layout, using the fabulous Notes Die Cut Specialty Paper, some Charcoal Kaisermist and lots of stamping with the super fun clear stamps that come with this collection.
I layered squares of patterned papers from the paper pad under my photo. The paper pads are perfect for this technique.

“# Happy” Layout
For this layout I wanted to use the striking text patterned paper for my background and contrast it with some lovely soft florals from the collection.
I also used a card from the All About Me Captured Moments Kit to frame my photo.

“Journal Planner – March”
For my final project I wanted to keep up to date with decorating my Journal Planner.
And what better month than my birthday month to use the # me collection?? Well that just turned out to be perfect timing for me. :-)
Did you spy the colouring page I included in my planner? I cut that from my Kaisercraft Free Spirit Colouring Book.
I did have to sacrifice the pretty illustration on the other side but I think it was worth it to add a lovely colouring page to my journal. :-)
