Gotta love me a cupcake .....

 Happy Sunday peeps!

So I have created another page using the August Cupcake Kit!

Gee I have got a lot of totally different pages out of this kit!

So with this page I wanted to use the MME Die Cuts as the main embellishments!

Added a little Lindys Stamp Gang Mist using the water brush technique I used here.
And I'm done!

I love this page .. a new fave for me!

Have a great day

APOCD ....

Happy Sunday peeps!

I know you hear me rattle on about how much I love these kits but really...... I seriously do! 

I LOVE the way I can create an easy paper based layout one day and go for something a little arty farty the next!

This page has a couple different easy techniques on it ... let me talk you through ....


I used the Ampersand mask and some Golden Light Molding Paste on the white cardstock and allowed it to air dry. Once dry I generously sprayed the page with the Lindy's Stamp Gang mist and allowed it to run to one side before hitting it with the heat gun to dry it off.

I then used some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink with the Diamonds mask. I like to used a latex sponge when inking and masking as it's gentle and holds the ink really well!

I used a few of the arrow die cuts in the ephemera kit, covered the weekday words with patterned paper and then used the super cute Kaiser alphas to create my title

From my personal stash I added some Technique Tuesday Stamps and some Typo Stamps!

What do you think?
I'm kinda loving the fun feel this layout has got!

Head over to the shop and sign up now for the next kit ... I've heard a rumor is AWESOME!!!!

A Piece of Cake love .....

Happy Sunday Peeps!

Today I'm showing you another way to use the Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist that is in the A Piece of Cake Designs August Cupcake Kit.

I love the strength in the color mist - it's bright and vibrant and really nice but for this page I wanted it a little more washed out and softer.

I used my water brush pen and tipped a little of the mist into it and then added some more water to thin it down. Test on a bit of scrap before adding to the page just to make sure your color is right!


I painted over my title and in and around the square elements on my page!

Worked a treat!


Have a great week guys and Happy Creating!

White with ..... Marshmallow....

This month over at White With One we are using .... MARSHMALLOW!

They are partnering with …. Rainbow Splendour who have very kindly
offered a $20 Prize Pack for one of this months winners.

Find them here on Facebook!

We were all sent a little something from Rainbow Splendor to use on our pages.

Here is my page using Marshmallow  

I have to admit I did have a little trouble working with the colour - getting it right wasn't as easy as it looks but I am pretty happy with the results!

How funny is that photo or Belinda Spencer, Lou Nelson and I ...
you'll see a lot more of these photos from the Seriously Scrapbooking All Day Scrap in coming projects!

Head over to the blog and have a look at the amazing work the rest of the girls did.
