Christmas colours...

Hi again,

I created this page using Christmas colours..... I have to be honest, I had to "borrow" my friends little boy for this layout.... I saw this photo of him and I HAD to scrapbook it!

I loved clustering a glitter foam leaf, with a vellum bow and flowers.
Hope you have some time to scrapbook this Christmas,

Rainbow Splendour for Christmas

Hi everyone,

I am officially on holidays today, so I have been scrapping!!!

I was easily inspired by this fabulous, rainbow-y mood board, designed by Chloe.

Here is my first layout....

Bright and colourful!

Perfect match to a RS fabric bow!

 Bit of glitter and dimensional magic and sequins! :)
If you have some scrap time at this busy time of year, maybe you could create a Rainbow inspired layout!

Good times ...

Hi everyone, it's Chloe here!  This year is flying by and we are nearly halfway through the last month already!  We have been a little quiet here lately, but I'm busy buying and creating new things behind the scenes, so watch this space!!! ;)

I'd like to quickly share this page I created for the FWAB challenge this month ...

I've used a small spotty red bow and how cute does it look with the flower on top?!

What are you creating?

Using the NEW Rainbow Splendour Products

Hi everyone!

Here is my last share with Rainbow Splendour for November. It's the end of the month, so I decided this week to get some online blog challenges done! Now I can share them with you, because on each of the designs, some of the latest, newest Rainbow Splendour goodies made their way on the page - I know, a surprise, right?!

First is the challenge from: White with 1

ww1 freesia

Here is my page and some close ups:


White gesso through a stencil plus doodling to create this background, and then some beautiful clusters of embellishments,
including the NEW handcut feathers and a Felt Bow from Rainbow Splendour.

Next, was this cool challenge at 123 Challenge .  


Here is my page and some close ups:


A doily and some cooper wire to create the frame around the photo (an awesome photo of me and my mum!), and then I went crazy glueing sequins and beads!
And I used one of the beautiful NEW glitter tipped feathers from Rainbow Splendour, which looks perfect nestled amongst all the cooper and golds and stars and flowers!

And lastly, I completed the challenge using the Mood Board at Sassy Scrappers:

Here is my page and a close up:

I was definitely inspired by this colour palette!
I created my own background with gelatos. I also did some stamping using the gelatos as well.
I layered some doilies with washi tape and plasters mesh under the photo and included some resin flowers, glitter bits and enamel dots.
And of course, the NEW Vellum Bows from Rainbow Splendour - look seriously good on any page! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today - I can't wait to get into December - new inspiration and more Rainbow Splendour goodies!

Thanks for looking! Hope you have having a fabulous week.

CARDS with Rainbow Splendour

Hi Everyone,

Secretly I am a scrapbooker, who does not make cards as often as I should. When I buy a card from the shop to go with a present, I feel guilty because surely I could find time to make something super quick with stuff from my stash? The reality is, that I find cards a challenge, so I think I avoid it- so little space to make the card balanced and looking good! Luckily this morning I was inspired by our friend Charmane, from Charms Creations who has been sharing her awesome cards on her Facebook page.

She was using these Tim Holtz distress stains
 to colour the backgrounds for her cards.

This was just the inspiration I needed to get busy making cards this afternoon. Using some lovely lovelies from my Rainbow Splendour stash - namely Polaroids, plus a few bows and chevrons, these cards, with their Tim Holtz coloured backgrounds and some sequins, were so quick and easy to assemble. These six cards were done in an hour! Now I have some cards in my pocket, all ready to go for the next birthday!

Here they are:

So that was fun! And it proves it... Rainbow Splendour is a perfect embellishment for card making... even the most reluctant card maker (me) can do it!

See you soon,

November Sketch #1

Hi everyone,

My turn to share at Rainbow Splendour this week!

We were ever so happy when Chloe designed a sketch for us, to use as inspiration!

Here it is.... (does it inspire you?):

And here is my layout and some close ups:

Page dedicated to my old cat JJ who we lost this year.
I used some of the latest Rainbow Splendour bows and the gorgeous hand cut feathers.
This morning, as my oldest daughter was getting dressed, I tried to put a spotty hair bow in her hair - she stopped me and said that because se was wearing a stripy shirt, there was no way she could use a spotty bow in her hair - spots and stripes don't go together according to her! Guess I didn't get the memo when I designed this page - spots, stripes, stars and hearts - total mix up of patterns! Ha!

Thanks for looking today! How have you been using your Rainbow Splendour bows?


Novembers challenge - layout 4

Good Morning, how are you on this fine Sunday? If your anything like me I am struggling with time management as it is getting to the crazy time of the year. Rikki here with my fourth layout with the challenge in mind. I have flipped the orientation of the page again to change it from  the original layout shared on Wednesday.

RBS Paper Clip... Just love the red!!!!

Why dont you team up the different size and style RBS Bows?

Well this ends the challenge week for me, 4 layout , 4 pieces of pattern paper and loads of Rainbow Splendour goodies.  See you next month with another awesome challenge. 

Till next time have a creative day....
