Happy - The Robins Nest

Hello all today I am sharing with another LO that I have created using the awesome products from The Robin's Nest.

To create this LO you will need the following Robin's Nest products;

1 x sheet of Airplane cardstock
1 x sheet of Rocking Horse Specialty paper
1 x sheet of Spa Canvas stock 
2 x packet of Blue flowers
1 x Title Happy Azure Glitter Chipboard

Take the Rocking Horse specialty paper and distress the edges
Take the airplane paper and cut down to be 11 x 11 and roll the corners and glue in place as per image below.

Take the Blue Flowers and scrunch together and glue then add to the LO as per images above and below.

Take the canvas cardstock and cut a square that is 6 x 6 and add to the centre of the LO then add your photo.

To add the title I just stapled it on below the photo.

I hope you have enjoyed my share today, I look forward to seeing it again.

A Boys Story is the Best that is Ever Told - Scrappingclearly

Today  I am sharing with on the blog an awesome mini album made with one of Scrappingclearly's acrylic albums. I have used the train and it has worked just perfectly for the photos of my nephew.

These albums are fabulous for using lots of photo's as you will see from mine. I just love how well the Prima metal cogs have worked as wheels

I have also used Hambly overlays and rubon's through out the album, I have also used one of the album pages to cut the shape if my Hambly and papers.

 I just love how the acrylic and hambly lets you see through the album and by cutting your papers to half the size you add another layer of dimension.

They are also an awesome way to use up any stickers you may have. 

 I have also cut my photos smaller and back to back them to add another layer.

 And you can see from this page the Happy sticker is carrying through from the inside front cover and still working with this photo.

I just love how well the elements work like this cog.

And finally the back cover I have used a Hambly rubon as part of the back cover.

Thank you for looking and I hope I have inspired you.

1234567890 Super Star

Hello its Kim again today sharing what I have done with you a layout that I have created using the Mouse Circle Paper Paper and a sheet of Blue Alphabet Stickers from  The Robins Nest.

So how do you get an awesome LO using just 2 pieces of matching paper and a set of alpha stickers, the answer is you simple make sure you can cut the elements on the paper out as embellishments.

So here is my LO and the simple instructions to create it.


So to make this LO you will take a sheet of the Mouse Circle paper and cut a mat to fit your photo using the corner so you have a red boarder along the left and top side of your photo the cut the same from another corner to the the same on the other 2 sides of your photo.

Then from a section of the yellow cut a tag to add to the left hand side of the LO and tuck it under the photo slightly. Then from the remainder of the paper cut out sections of the circles and stars and tuck in around the matted photo as per image of LO. Then add your Title and your LO is finished.

You can see a bit better how I have cut the circle and stars and tucked them in from the below photo.

Thank you for stopping and looking at my LO I hope it has inspired you to create a similar LO

Getting A Little Messy

Morning everyone today Lisa is having a day off posting her mixed media day and has handed the reins to me. I am sharing a page or 2 from my art journal with you that I have created, using many of the mixed media items in the Scrappingclearly Shop.

First up today is a page where i have created a dream catcher I created the background using Dylusions Paints and lots of bits and pieces I had lying around.

I just love who vibrant the colours are of the Dylusion paint it is just amazing. As you can see ihave used lots of bits and pieces to create my catcher.

I am also sharing a page I have created using The Crafters Workshop stencils Glimmer Mists and silk paint paint but you could use the new Prima paints just as well the random stamping adds to the feel of this page and the feeling of depth.

As you can see below i have shadow stamped an image of a person into the stencil body.

And this image just shows how the random mixing stamping paints and mists can work so well togther.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you today.
Thank you for dropping by Kim.

Scrapping Clearly February Moodboard

Hello Kim here today, I am sharing with you my take on the moodboard the colours in the moodboard are divine and I just loved playing with.

For my take I have decided to play in my art journal which is a Dylusions A4 one which is available at Scrapping Clearly. I have also used the Dylusions Sprays to create the colour and some stencils

This is my double page in my journal.

I love how the Dylusions Sprays work with water to create this page I sprayed with the mists and then dry and layered a stencil and spray with water and blotted it with a paper towel roll. I applied the hearts this way and then cut some printed tissue paper and stuck this slightly off center.  

Then I have applied my stencils with Jo Sonja Black Gesso and when dry on my lady I then sprayed with water and blotted out some of the colour.

I have randomly added torn tissue paper to the page and random stamping and stencilling.

And I just love this quote on this stencil from Donna Downey I think is sums art journalling up.

I hope you have enjoyed my sharing of the moodboard and that it has inspired you all to try and have a go. Thanks Kim.

Oh What a Cutie - Memory Maze

Welcome to 2016 and the start of the new Memory Maze year I look forward to sharing many exciting new creations with you.

To day I am sharing a layout with you that is such a simple yet beautiful layout the chipboard just makes the whole layout pop.

I love how I could place the photo through the frame and layer the paper over it  to soften the whole effect of the layout

I have used gold chipboard dots to highlight the center of the arches on the boarder chipboard and wow how awesome it looks.

 To create my LO I have used the following Memory Maze products

I hope that you have enjoyed my first upload for 2016 and welcome you to come back each day and see what the amazing Memory Maze 2016 design team create to share with you and inspire you.

Capture Today Planner

Hello everyone today  I am going to share with you my Scrapping Clearly Planner post using the Pink Paislee "Celebrate Today" planner this planner is an awesome planner for those who would like an A5 size that can go in your bag with a Month to a double page and lots of small spots for quick notes.

I will start with my cover and on it I have kept it simple by just using some American Crafts Clearly Posh Gold Thickers to add the 2016 and the asterisk at the start and the end of the words, I have also added some stars and and arrow from Heidi Swapp Memory Planner Foil Chips.

Inside this wonderful planner you will that the page dividers are all so amazing different and are all quite strong I have just added to mine the Camera paper clip that is in the January Planner Subscription Kit 

The page see you with a double spread titled "This Month" below is what I have done with mine I have dressed it up with Heidi Swapp Planner embellishments and I have used the peal off Heidi Swapp post it notes from the planner kit and written on on and under one as the images show. And it is perfect for insta photos.

and here is a close up of using the post it notes from Heidi Swapp

next i am sharing the Month to a Double page and I just love how the view of this looks it doesn't have the month name so you can use what you like there I have used the Heidi Swapp Months stamps and used lots of bits from the 2016 Heidi Swapp planner range to embellish the page.

On this page I have also used the straw, the butterfly and the clock stamp from the planner kit on the tag as you will see in the close up below.

The next pages I am sharing with you are another block page and a blank page that I didn't want to write on so instead I stamped and used an acetate overlay from the Heidi 2016 Planner range.

On the Block page I have used lots of the January planner kit.

On this page I have stamped with Dina Wakley stamps the images of the women and them place the overlay over it and how cool did it come up

The final page I am sharing today is the last page for January and here I have used the paper bag the frame and sprinkles mix from the January kit to make a shaker box and have included a memory file in the paper bag with some more photos you can use the bag to store all sorts of bits and bobs from the month like movie tickets etc.

I hope you have liked my Planner share I look forward to sharing my February with you thank you for looking at my post.

Adore - Scrapping Clearly

Today I would love to share with a layout I have created for Scrapping Clearly using the original range from Heidi Swapp called Sugar Chic it is the most adorable pretty yellow and pink range and it was re released with the papers having glitter on them. I have also used a 12 x 12 misted background that I have chosen not to mist.

I just love the way every thing in the range coordinates so well and how easy it is to layer them,

The word adore was an awesome set of cards that Heidi also released and it just is adorable being in Heidi's hand writing.


These older ranges of Heidi's are timeless and never seem to date and coordinate so well with her newer ones.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my share today and I will be back next with my take on this months awesome sketch,

Thank you for looking Kim Kendell

A Little Bit of Planner Excitement

Hello everyone I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are all collecting photos and bits and bobs to add to the awesome new 2016 planner you have. Planners are a fabulous way to record your every day life from appointments to records of exciting events in your life.

I have been using the Heidi Swapp planner since Heidi introduced her 2014 planner one to match the hello today range. This planner was awesome for small snippets of your life as the was only small circle for you to record your events, there are still some of these available in the shop now.

In 2015 Heidi introduced 2 awesome planners one in black and white and the other is water colour this is the one that I chose to use it was the softness of the green and the silver that I loved and this is still available in the shop and the bonus of Heidi Swapp Planners is that they are undated and can be used for any year.  

I am sharing with you today some of my December 2015 pages many of the pages I wont share as they are very personal to me but stay tuned in the the new year for some I will be sharing.

At the start of each month I like to decorate my start of month page for December I have used Heidi Swapps Believe Christmas range

I then like to use the next page to include 2 special photos from the month and I briefly write what they mean to me as its not the end of the month yet and I have some more places I am going the are currently blank. I always include lots of little bits and pieces I have collect during the month to decorate my journal.


The next page always has a large area for writing or decorating and I tend to create a mini layout here again using a small photo from the month that is special.

I love the month page and use it as a quick reference as to what is happening and when and love to use random items to mark the days on here.

As with all Heidi's new planners there are so many pages for documenting your life I use the middle ones to record life as a journal rather than a diary this is where I right about what is and has happened in my life I also include photo's in here and instax camera's are awesome for this.

I hope you all love doing your planners and that I have provided you with some inspiration with your 2016 planner, Don't forget that Scrapping Clearly has an amazing rage of products suitable for your planner including the new monthly planner kit which contains all sort of exciting bits and pieces that you can include in your planner.

Thank you for stopping on by Kim
