Halloween BOO Card
(More Than Words MINI Challenge)

Oh this is a fun one and I'm so happy to share it with you today!

This colourful Halloween-inspired card was created for the More Than Words MINI Challenge that is all about the word BOO this month.

You can check out more DT inspiration using the word BOO right HERE.
To play along, you have to include the word BOO on a card, tag or ATC and share it on the More Than Words Facebook page by the end of the month to be eligible to win!

I went digging into my Halloween stash (which is pretty limited I must say) and found these old line from We R Memory Keepers.  

The collection comes with chipboard alphas and lots of glittered die-cut shapes... perfect for my card!

I can't wait to see your BOO creations!

You & Me Timeless
(Scraps of Elegance "Timeless" Kit)

I hope that you have enjoyed so far all my projects created with the Scraps of Elegance "Timeless" kit.  This is my final layout using this kit and its add-ons, a bit simpler in style but still shabby chic with beautiful lace and lots of flowers.

I used the bare Prima wood alphas to create my title and covered the Blue Fern Studios Timeless chipboard with Imagine Ink Fuschia embossing powder.

The Bella Rosa collection from BoBunny is so romantic and elegant... I absolutely love this tin jars with the roses and feathers.

You can see below details of the gorgeous lace trim included in the main kit!  Lace trim and pink flowers... it doesn't get any better than this!

And of course, 'You & Me' stands for my partner in life and love, Yves and I, who are still going strong after more than 10 years of being together.  He is truly my soul mate, and I do believe that our live is 'timeless'.

I have lots of leftovers from the kit and add-ons so hopefully I have some time to create more with it over the next few days.  I'm thinking cards!!  So stay tuned!

Enjoy the Little Things
(Scraps of Elegance "Timeless" Kit)

This is layout 3 of 4, created with the September "Timeless" kit from Scraps of Elegance!

The "Timeless" kit is choc full of gorgeous papers, die cuts, chipboard, wood icons, etc... and the elements, floral and color kits are the perfect add-ons. Click HERE for more information!

You can clearly see on this page the blending of the BoBunny and Graphic45 papers from this kit. The peachy orange and the teal blue look absolutely lovely together and go well with a photograph of my niece Daphne getting acquainted with a beautiful little butterfly.

I used several of the different Graphic45 alphabet stickers to create the title along with the wooden letters from Prima that I colored in Lindy's Danny Zuko's Denim blue (love the name!!)

I can't get over how beautiful this shade of orange is and how well it goes with the teal blue.
Absolutely a new favorite colour combination for me!

I've got one more layout to share using the "Timeless" kit... and that happens tomorrow!

Doors of Perception
(Scraps of Elegance "Timeless" Kit)

I'm back today with another layout created with the "Timeless" Scraps of Elegance Kit.

When I saw the several chipboard and die-cut doors window shutters from the BoBunny Bella Rosa line, I was inspired to create this layout and use this quote that I have always loved way back from my University days when I was a huge fan of Jim Morrison and The Doors: "There are things known and things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception."  The quote is from Aldous Huxley but Jim Morrison was inspired by it greatly when writing his own poetry and songs.

I used a lot of the rustic shapes from the kit and an image of a very old and vintage door and doorknob borrowed from the web.

I am absolutely in love with the final result!

Here's a look once again at the "Timeless" kit and the Elements, Floral and Colour add-ons used.

Most Bellissima
(Scraps of Elegance "Timeless" Kit)

Over the next few days, I will be sharing with you my projects created with the Scraps of Elegance September "Timeless" Kit, starting with this very shabby chic layout of me posing at my friend's wedding for which I was the maid of honour, back in 2008.

The "Timeless" kit features a combination of the very elegant Rosa Bella collection from BoBunny and Cafe Parisian line from Graphic45 with coordinating Blue Fern Studios chipboard, Prima flowers and so much more!

I got to combine these 3 September SOE add-ons to my creations:

Elements Add-On

Floral Add-On

Color Add-On

Here are some close-ups:

What a beautiful palette of burgundy, peachy orange and ivory.  I love it!

I sprayed Lindy's Starburst Spray and added dabs of white paint to add a little touch of mixed media to my page.
