Big Idea Festival

I joined up for the Big Idea Festival at Big Picture Scrapbooking and it's been lots of fun so far. A new challenge to do everyday, plus lots of projects and ideas! Here is my layout for the first Project we were given
These photos were taken a few years ago when we went to the botanic gardens. I used Big Huge Labs to create the mosiac photo collage (something I'll be using again)
This next layout was made for the I laugh challenge.

The challenge was to finish the sentence I laugh..., then to create a layout on that sentence. I laugh all the time whenever I watch any Will Ferrell's movies and went with that.
The Big Idea Festival is still running and it's free to join up, check it out you'll find plenty of ideas and inspiration!

Free Skull Cupcake Pattern

I used this pattern to do some hand embroidery (suggested embroidery thread colours are included in the download), but it could be used as a paper piecing pattern as well. You may sell any finished work from this pattern, but do not sell or give away the pattern itself.

Free Bunny Paper Piecing

I have this free pattern for this cute bunny on offer. This bunny would look good on a scrapbook book page or use it for card making. You may sell any finished work using this pattern, but do not sell or giveaway the pattern itself.

Butterfly Card

This is a simple designed card and you can use it for any occasion. I made two cards using this design, one with stickers and the other with stamps.
I have made a how to video on how to create this card

Scrapbook Layout finally finished

I started this layout quite awhile ago but didn't finish it. So yesterday I pulled it out and got to work on it. I'm really happy with the results as I hardly ever stamp on my layouts (and I have an arsenol of stamps!) I used ghost letters, painted underneath with red then stamped with a script stamp and black staz on over the top. I also stamped the script stamp on the Primas. The wooden flourishes are from Kaisercraft (I cut them in half to fit on the page).
TFL and have a crafty day!
