Welcome to July ...

I think you will all truly love our colour this month as our team had so much fun using it.

  Introducing ....


We hope you like our inclusion of a mood board to help inspire you ... we'd love to see some element or idea from here on your page. 


and some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ...
(in no particular order)

Natsuko Suzuki (Japan)

Lisa Johnston (Australia)
I was inspired by the wool texture in the mood board to think of booties . I added some soft textures with a felt cloud from Charms Creations, a felt star patch and stitching through the buttons. The balloons made me think of the sky and I found a super cute (but ancient) cloud print in my stash that I fussy cut out. This was a great stash busting layout with lots of little elements added.

Tanya Heritage (Australia)

Louise Turner (Australia)
"1st Haircut" - I've created my own striped background using distress crayons, washi tape and background stamping. Othere elements from my stash. I love how the colours in the photos really lift off the page.

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
The yarn on the moodboard was my inspiration. I knew I wanted to use the tiny little knitted baby outfit, so chose a baby photo to match, and then other baby themed ephemra pieces. I created the layout in a grid design, spreading the blue and white elements around, and finishing it off with little clusters of enamel dots and diamantes.

Melinda France (Australia)

The light blue reminds me of the sky and a splash of water. So I mix them together with the birds flying overhead.

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)

Michelle Van Oudtshoorn (New Zealand)
This is me about 10 years old. Background gesso'd, inked and then stamped, and added chippies. These are white flowers which I painted and then added some pearls.
