Another sketch for you.

Well it's Tuesday again, and you know what that means? Yep that's right, it's time for another sketch. I took this one from a layout I've just completed. Unfortunately I can't show you the layout just yet, as I used the gorgeous bright and funky June kit. The kit will be hitting the shop in about 12 days time, so you'll just have to wait for that one :) But, I am off to do another layout with the sketch, which I will post a bit later.
So, I hope you all have a go at the sketch, and please post your lo in the gallery, 
we love to see your gorgeous creations. Bye for now. 

Ok , so it's taken me all day to get back with my here it is, hope it was a little worth the wait :) I've used some gorgeous new Crate papers, Orbit collection and part of a Jenni Bowlin die cut, all available in store at CPC.

Pink Persimmon stamps

Hi there, it's Lynlee here. If you love stamping, like me, then you are in for a treat. I wanted to tell you a bit about some gorgeous new stamps that have just landed in store at CPC. They are from a company called Pink Persimmon, and CPC is one of the few Australian stores that are carrying them. Pink Persimmon specialise in very high quality, clear photopolymer stamp sets, some of them are vintage inspired, but all of them are very versatile and give you a fantastic crisp image. One of my most used, and most loved stamps is actually their Dutch Journal stamp, which is specifically designed to fit inside the largest of the Nestabillities Scallop Circle dies. I usually just stamp the image first then line up my die and run it through my Cuttlebug, and you end up with a fantastic journal circle. My layout below is an example of this gorgeous stamp.

These are just some of the sets that are in the shop now, so why not stop by and check them out, they really are very nice.
Well that's it from me today, I'm off to grab myself the "Wise Old Owl" set, not that I need anymore stamps :)

A sketch, a layout and Heidi Swapp Invisibles...

Good morning, Lynlee here, and as it is Tuesday again, it must be time for a sketch. I also have a layout as a example, and as I have used the new Heidi Swapp Invisibles on my layout, I thought I would give you a quick run-down on what they are, and a couple of examples on how you can use them. So first up, here is this weeks sketch.And here is the layout I created for the sketch. I have used a some Crate paper as my cardstock, then a piece from Basic Greys Urban Prairie range. I have used the Invisibles as my title and the pink and white spotty piece as my photo mat.

Now, on to what the Heidi Swapp Invisibles actually are. They are a range of products which have a pattern on them, and the pattern is printed to resist inks, chalks, glimmer mists etc, so that you can colour the items to suit the specific project you are doing. The picture below shows the 12x12 paper which I have used on my layout to mat my photo's. You can see that I just coloured in the section that I wanted to use with the pink ink, and it now perfectly matches my layout.

In the photo below I chose to use the alphabet for some of my title, so I went ahead and picked out my letters, then I just stuck them down to some baking paper and inked away, then once the ink dried I just stuck them to my layout. I also added Glossy Accent once I had finished sticking them to the layout, so lots of possiblitied here.
So that's my basic run-down on using Invisibles, but if you would like to know a bit more, just watch the video, and Heidi will show you some more great stuff to do with them. Marg has a great range in store at the moment, so why not give them a go, they are a really great product. Enjoy !
