Aladdin printable for my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner

I am so excited to head to the movies this weekend to see the new Aladdin movie. The original movie has been a favourite of mine since it first came out so I am interested to see how this one will compare. Not to mention I am a huge Will Smith fan !! To celebrate I wanted to create a special page divider in my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. I thought what better way than with a touch of Minc foil!

I created this printable with a fun take on my favourite song " Friend Like me". Everyone needs a friend like a Genie right!

I printed it out onto some vellum using my Laser printer  and then sent it through my Minc machine with some of the New Gold Star Minc foil. I then used the Heidi Swapp 6  hole punch to punch the holes and added it straight into my Memory Planner. I love the way it looks!
If you would like a copy of the printable for yourself just download the printable below and save it to your computer!

See you at the movies!

Altenew May 2019 Blog Hop

I am thrilled to be joining Altenew this month for another fabulous release of gorgeousness. Before I get to the projects I created, check out all the new releases right here in their shop.
Aren't the new goodies just delish. I am so excited to be joining all the lovely ladies on the hop - be sure to check out all the links (below) to visit them all and be in the chance to win a fabulous prize.

I am sharing two cards today.
The first  card using the Basic Blooms and Die stencil.

I layered up my  warm coloured inks  for the petals for a sunshiny feel to my card.  I then used the matching die to cut out each stamped flower, layering them with foam tape for extra dimension on the front of the card.

I then stamped a couple of the sentiments from the Basic Blooms stamp set onto white cardstock and trimmed them out and added them to my card.

 For my second card I used the beautiful Dare To Dream Stamp set.

The patterns reminded me of Aegean designs so I took some of my cool coloured ink pads and stamped for the the designs onto white cardstock. I then trimmed out each stamped image.

I added them in a grid design on my cardstock, popping them up with foam tape for extra dimension. I added my sentiments using the Basic Blooms sentiments. 
I hope I have inspired you with some of the gorgeous new stamps. Be sure to head to the lovely 
Caly Person for the next stop on the blog hop!

Young Jedi meets Wolf Pack

Have you seen the brand new Heidi Swapp collection called Wolf Pack! It is filled with awesome boyish  and outdoor patterns and designs. It also contains a few papers and ephemera pieces with a night sky theme . I thought what a better way to celebrate the collection with a layout about my son and his Jedi training at Disneyland.

I took that gorgeous sky background  from the collection as my base and adhered my photos on a diagonal design.

I then added my title using the Wolf Pack thickers, straight  onto my photo.

I  took some of the ephemera pieces and added them in and around my photos.

Finally, to complete my layout I added my word journalling strips beneath my photos.
If you haven't seen the new Wolf Pack collection be sure to look for it at your local Scrapbook shop today!

Rad layout !

Back in January I had the pleasure of catching up with the lovely Megan  from the Sweet Tooth Fairy. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet so I wanted to dedicate a layout to her. Her bright cherry red dress stood out to me so I had to keep that as a focus.  I chose to use the Heidi Swapp Color Fresh collection and as my base pattern paper that gorgeous red and pink pattern paper!

I then found this fun cupcake stand cut file from  Paige Evans, cut it in white cardstock and then backed it with pattern paper from the 6x6  Color Fresh paper pad.  I added pop dots and layered it onto my layout!

I then typed up my journaling using my We R Memory Keepers typecast typewriter

I  used the We R Memory Keepers Mini Guillotine Cutter to trim my journaling into strips. It is so easy to use!

I then adhered them straight onto my layout!

The We R Memory Keepers Mini Guillotine Cutter is my new favourite tool when I am scrapbooking, it makes cutting my journaling strips, photos and pattern papers so easy!
