More Rainbow Splendour Fun

Here is another reasonably new page created using lots of the pretties from the most recent girly kit from Rainbow Splendour. I am especially in love with the oragami wood veneer butterflies!

From the kit I have used: Pretty pin (well the pretty triangle circle that was on the pin that I accidentally pulled off...don't ask...), felt bow, wood veneer butterflies, glitter die cut star and epoxy circle.

I also added this pretty purple Charms Creations heart. It layered beautifully with the butterfly and phrase sticker.

 I think this epoxy is one of my all time favourites from the RS kits! I just love the yellow against the pinks and purples.

For my background I used some minc reactive paint through a stencil and then foiled with purple and hot pink. The foil adds some texture, colour and interest to the background without any bulk!

That's it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by,

It has been a while...

So, one could say that the year kind of got away from me there! The last few months were a blur of assignments, exams, kindy photos, primary school graduation, birthdays and finally Christmas. But now, I have some time to rest and even catch up a little on what I have been doing. I didn't manage much scrapping in that time either, but I am trying to make up for that now. I think I have pulled off five pages in two days! Yay me!

Today I am going to share a new page (hopefully I will get caught up on what I haven't shared later...) created for the Show Us Your Stuff blog, which is being sponsored by Rainbow Splendour. This month is a sketch, which is perfect for the busy month of December. I even decided to do a holidays themed page, and I used the December Hip Kit for most of my bits and pieces. I have been loving their kits and decided to order a few this year as a treat for myself. I am not ready to subscribe just yet, but maybe down the track that will happen...

So here is the sketch:

And here is my page:

Lots of handmade goodies on my page, and I had great fun creating a non-traditional Christmas themed page using pretty colours.

Here is my Charms Creations Star paired with half a vellum bow from Rainbow Splendour.

This little cluster has a button and silver glitter star from Burdy's Embellies (one of her gorgeous kits).

A pretty pin with a pretty wood veneer star from Rainbow Splendour, and the cute little silver stars are from the same Burdy's Embellies kit that I mentioned earlier.

And this cute star paperclip was also in the kit from Burdy's Embellies.

So, I managed to sneak this one in just before the end of the month, maybe I will go and see if I can squeeze another challenge in before the month ends!

Thanks for stopping by,
