My studio shares with RG Make Amazing team

Hi Everyone, I hope you are getting some time to get creative and do what you love!  We are sharing our space over on the RG blog over the coming week, so I wanted to pop in and share mine with you all, along with my favourite storage tip!

I just adore my studio which is in a large attic room in our house.  We have recently made it into a little more of a family room but there is still lots of space for me and my boys to get creative!

My boys also have their own creative space and the just LOVE getting into my Celebrations and Fun Stampers Journey ink pads and stamps!

 I also wanted to share how I store my die and stamp sets as well as other matching embellishments.  I love these A6 folders.  I have store all my dies and matching stamps in them - it is really easy to flick through them and work out which one you might like to use!

  1. First I like to remove any excess packaging and keep them stored on either magnetic sheets or the original card they came on.
  2. I often will write the name and code on each one, helping me to keep them in some order as well as allow me to list my products easier on my blog posts, videos or magazine articles.
  3. Next I add them to the sealable pockets and then into the folders

These pockets are also great for non bulky embellishments too such as thes Bro Rivets from the Lumberjack Days collection and accent dots from the Make Amazing Happen Collection.

Each folder is labelled on its spine and I then store my many folders at the edge of my table for easy access and reach when I'm creating.

Well I hope you enjoyed my share today!

I'll promise to be back again real soon with some more inspiration 

Happy Crafting!

Vintage inspired layout with Indigoblu

Hi Everyone, I'm here today to share with you a fun scrapbook page I created for Indigoblu using some of their divine stamps, paints and megaflake.  Such a match made in heaven!  

Indigoblu Products Used:
English Rose Megaflake
Eaton Moss Megaflake
English Cottage metallic paint - Gold Finger
Indigoblu Big Butterfly red rubber stamp

My process:
  1. To create my page I applied Flitterglu to the chipboard and die cut pieces and then added the MegaFlake to each piece using the scrubbie to remove any excess
  2. For my background I watered down some of the 'Gold Finger' paint and applied it through a stencil into the background with a sponge
  3. Additionally I stamped the big butterfly stamp using the megaflake adding the Eaton Moss Megaflake before removing the excess with the scrubbie
  4. Layer up some pattern paper, die cut pieces around your photo along with a chipboard title
  5. lastly adhere some enamel dots to the page for some added sparkle

So you can get up close and personal with it, here are some detail pics as well

I'm sharing this page along with some of the other Indigoblu belles over on the Indigoblu blog, head on over and see what the other ladies created!  



Don't forget I'll be at Bella Carta in Horsham teaching some wonderful classes!

Decorative frame with RG Make Amazing Happen

Hi Everyone, I'm back again with another RG Richard Garay share.  This time I have created a decorative base for a photo frame insert.  What I love most about this idea is that it makes a really fun way to incorporate the seasons colous into your home!

I had so much fun I thought I would share a video showing how it came together and also some reasoning behind how I achieved the end look.
