Blanket Thief | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone!
Sue Plumb here to share my latest design team project with you. Today I have a mixed media scrapbook page to share that I created using the new 'Happily Ever After' collection and some Flutter Colour paints. (And of course, my super cute kitty too!)

I started this page by creating an abstract background using Flutter Colour paints. The colours I used were Tropicana Teal; Grape Soda; Green Limousine; Stormy Grey and Yellow Zest. I didn't work with any particular result in mind when I applied the paint, I simply followed my instinct. I used a combination of methods to apply it - smeared with an old gift card; applied with a brush; and also with my fingers.

Once the paint had dried, I applied some black ink using a sponge dauber through the 'Hugs and Kisses' stencil. I then took some of the 'Happily Ever After' Everday Etc filler cards and applied some cut and torn pieces to my background, before mounting my photos on top.

I used two of the 'Happily Ever After' Everyday Etc cards and fussy cut the large LOVE word and also the blanket thief phrase. I then used 'Teal' Sticky Alphas to add the word couch to my page.

I then added the XOXO sticker from the 'Happily Ever After' Sticky Quotes sheet; along with the life is good and cheeky bugger phrases from some of the Snippet Strips.
The final embellishment I added was the good vibes only flair button directly onto my photo, from the 'Good Vibes Only' flair button set #1.

To finish my page, I splattered a few drops of ink, plus added a few random scribbles and crosses using a pencil.

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by so I could share this with you. I will be back again soon with another project.
Until then, happy scrapping!

Project Life with Adele

Hey scrappy peeps!

Today I am catching up on some Project Life using the "Happily Ever After" collection. I thought it was rather appropriate to use this collection when documenting a fun weekend away with some of my scrappy besties...including a certain Flutterby gal!

I love to use the Everyday Etc cards to create my own cut out embellishment shapes, like this XO heart. I raised it on foam to give it some extra dimension and pair it with some enamel dots, a sticker from the sticker sheet and a label from my stash.

I created another pocket card here using two different Everyday Etc cards meshed together, along with some tiny alphas also available from the Flutterby Designs online store.

Do you enjoy using Flutterby goodies in your Project Life?? I am currently addicted to all the tiny word stickers available - I can't get enough of them!

Have a lovely scrappy weekend peeps!
Adele :)

You're My Weirdo by Allara Bamforth


Allara back on the blog today with another fun layout from the Happy Ever After Collection!

So this layout actually started as an extension of the previous layout from May 27th, You are the Stars. All the Flutter Colout Paint - Bright set that I had used on the previous layout, I  applied with a brayer. So after rolling each colour over the my previous page, I cleaned my brayer on the top of my next page - so as not to waste any paint and created a really cool looking distressed back ground down half of the page.

Using the I Heart You Stencil, I've applied some Artic While Flutter Colour Paint across the top of the page and then painted some Raspberry Punch down the side of the white hearts. I then added some stamping on the Raspberry Punch. Pulling out the I Heart You Stencil again I've added some hearts, this time with Black Mayhem Flutter Colour Paint. I've outline the the hears with some White and Black Paints Pens. Next I've dipped the end of paint brush into the Tropicana Teal Flutter Colour Paint to make some dots to create more interest and splattered some of the white paint over the back ground. Then using the All you Need is Love Stencil and my black marker I've added "Love" over the page.

I've then layered my photo with the Everyday Etc Filler Cards and from the 12 x 12 Paper Pack - Happily Ever After Collection and the What Makes us Work page, I have added one of the quotes. Finished it off with the Nuts About You Flair from the Happily Ever After Flair Buttons 2 Pack. And coloured a litle bit of hessian for some texture.

Thanks for taking a peek at my creation this time around and make sure you pick up some of these fabulous goodies through the Flutterbys Store.

Till next post,

'Happy Life Together' by Rachel Dutko

Hello everyone!

Rachel with you today with a 12x12 layout using the 'Happily Ever After' collection.

I used a piece of the 'Mac & Cheese' 12x12 paper for my base.
I then added some Flutter Colour Paint in Orange Goldfish and Tropicana Teal 
to create more layers in my background.

I then layered some Everyday Etc filler cards under my photo.

For my title I used a 'together' wood veneer piece which I coloured with Tropicana Teal Flutter Colour paint, 
as well as the 'Happy' and 'Life' fussy cut from an Everyday Etc. card.

I also added some stickers, a flair, some enamel dots and some more details fussy cut from Everyday Etc. cards.

Thanks for looking

Love | Tamara Buckler

Hey Hey Flutterby Friends,

Tam back with you today to share my latest layout using our new 'Happily Ever After' collection. This one features a couple of pics of hubby and I, which are sadly few and far between. Something I need to rectify I think!

I started by running some texture paste through the 'all you need is love' stencil, which I laid diagonally across the page. I then watered down some Flutter Colour Paint in Orange Goldfish, and used the packaging technique to apply this to the page. I also added some paint and ink splatters at this point.

I then matted and layered up my photos with some Everyday Etc Filler Cards, and then tucked some Page Tabs around the place.

The large enamel 'love' is just gorgeous and really directed where the other elements on the page where going to be placed. I added in a sentiment from the Everyday Etc Cards.

I added in some fussy cut hearts from some older 'We Run the World' 12x12 paper pack, and I love the grungy edge this gives. And to finish off the page,  I added in some stickers and enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my layout today, and I hope you all get a chance to get crafty over the weekend.

Big Loves,
Tam xo

Weird | Belinda Spencer

Hi Flutterby peeps!

Belinda here today to share a layout featuring the brand new Happily Ever After collection.

I think my favourite thing about this stunning range is the 12x12 patterned paper pack. The designs are so fabulous and bright and you can get away with very little altering as Anita has done all the hard work for you. 

For my layout today I have not added any mixed media. SHOCK HORROR!! Seriously the paper is so gorgeous as is that it just doesn't need it. Check this out...

'Weird' Layout

For my background featuring the 'Love Potion' patterned paper, I fussy cut some of the love hearts to make cute peep holes in the paper. I then layered it on some white cardstock and used a black journalling pen to doodle in some messy hearts. 

Here's a closer look...

I added some layers with co-ordinating filler cards and used my journalling pen to add borders. I used a white paint pen to flick some white droplets across the page and let dry.

I added a photo of my hubby and me being strange. In actual fact it was a cold day and we both had cold noses so we pulled our jumpers up to cover our noses. I thought my hubby looked like Count Dracula so this was our impression of vampires. Yeah you had to be there. LOL

I finished with some cute wood veneer bits, a die-cut, page tab and some enamel dots.
Sometimes it is nice to take a break from the mixed media and create a quick layout and this collection makes it super easy to do so.

Here's what I used:

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

You're My Sunshine & Summer Fun | Sue Plumb

Hello Flutterby friends & fans!
Sue Plumb here today to share TWO projects with you that I created with the recently released 'Good Vibes Only' collection - a layout AND a pocket page! The layout was actually created for this month's challenge at Scrap the Girls, which just happens to be sponsored by Flutterby Designs - yay! I thought what better way to document lots of photos from this fun day out at a music festival with my best friend, than by creating a complimentary pocket page to sit alongside it in my album. 

Here's a look at the layout first...

I used the gorgeous 'Ray of Sunshine' paper from the 'Good Vibes Only' 12x12" paper pack as the base; then I cut a variety of pieces from the coordinating Everyday Etc cards and filler cards, and arranged them in a patchwork style on my page. I then used my sewing machine to add some subtle stitching before adding my photo on top.

On top of my layers, I added a couple of phrase stickers from the 'Good Vibes Only' Sticky Quote sheet, which I also then stitched over the top of. Above those, I added a Charms Creations heart.
I also added the fuck I love you babe quote sticker from the 'Mad About You' Sticky Quotes sheet directly onto my photo.

My title was created using the sunshine word from the 'Good Vibes Only' Die Cut Bits & Bobs pack, combined with you're my cut from a white Tiny Sticky Quote. I also added the stitching through the die cut word to tie in with the rest of my page.

I used the little pina colada image from one of the Everyday Etc cards, and HAD to use the super cute pina colada flair button alongside it. (Pina Coladas are my absolute favourite cocktail and my bestie and I have shared MANY of them together, so it had extra significance putting it on this page.)

As I mentioned earlier I had many more photos from this day I wanted to document and I was having waaay too much fun with this collection too, so I moved on to creating a complimentary pocket page.

When working with pocket pages, I always start by printing the photos I want to include and laying them out on top of the pockets. I had already looked through all the Everyday Etc cards and filler cards from the collection and sorted a pile that coordinated; so it was simply a matter of trying them out and finding an arrangement I was happy with before I started sticking things down.

Some of the additional Flutterby items I used in my pockets included Sticky Quotes (from both the 'Good Vibes Only' and 'Xtreme Teen' sheets); Blackboard Sticky Quotes; 'Good Vibes Only' Die Cut Bits & BobsTeal Sticky Alphas; and Rainbow Heart Stickers.

I also used one of the super cool acrylic words that comes in the 'Good Vibes Only' Kit; along with a few enamel dots (because enamel dots go with evvverything, right?!)

I was really happy with how this fun page turned out; and it served as a great reminder that I need to make this sort of complimentary page more often for my album. It's fabulous (and easy) way to include multiple photos on a spread.

If you missed out on the 'Good Vibes Only' range when it was released, never fear, there is still some left! Head over to the Flutterby Designs shop and grab it while you can - such a fun collection to document your summer memories!

Thanks for stopping by today so I could share these projects with you. If you would like to play along with this month's Scrap the Girls challenge for your chance to win a Flutterby Designs prize, head over to the STG blog HERE and check out the details.
Until next time, happy scrapping!
