Summer Vibes | Belinda Spencer

Hello Flutterby fans!

Belinda here today to share a layout created with the awesome Good Vibes Only collection. I absolutely love the sweet watermelon elements in this range so I have based my layout around this.

'Summer Vibes' Layout

I just happened to have a photo of my darling daughter when she was much younger pretending to eat a chunk of watermelon like a rabbit. You can't see in the photo but she was wearing fluffy pink bunny ears at the time.
I chose the Neapolitan Notes paper from the 12 x 12 Paper Pack for its gorgeous pink colour for my background paper and swiped some Raspberry Punch Flutter Colour Paint over it using a silicone brush. I added some stamping too using a Darkroom Door stamp that was just perfect for this layout.

Once dry, I added some sweet subtle stencilling using the Little Big Love Stencil and some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.

To give my layout a more summery feel I swiped some texture paste over the Aloha Stencil to add some stunning frangipanni flowers. Once dry, I coloured over the top of the flowers using a white paint pen to make them more of a crisp white.

I fussy cut the word Hello from the Hello Summer Photo Card. I love adding fussy cut elements to my layouts as I find fussy cutting quite relaxing. I especially love fussy cutting the photo cards as the knife just glides through the photo paper making it so much easier.
How cute is that little watermelon wood veneer?!! So cute! I added some cute little wood veneer hearts too as well as the the word 'vibes' that I punched out of the Good Vibes Only wood veneer piece.

I finished with some watercolour sticky quotes, a page tab and a sprinkling of the Christmas Enamel Dots. These are my favourite enamel dots as they have a lovely matt finish.

Here's what I used:

Good Vibes Only | Sue Plumb

Hi Flutterby peeps!
Sue Plumb here to share my latest design team project with you, and my very first one using the brand new 'Good Vibes Only' collection. This range is super fun - packed with colour, patterns and sweet summer motifs - perfect for scrapping all those fun holiday snaps. 
I chose to document a photo of my hubby, my boys and I at the beach during the Christmas holidays.

I started this page with one of the 12x12" sheets from the 'Good Vibes Only' Paper Pack. The one I used was called 'Salty Seas' and has a beautiful blue watercolour pattern. I decided to add a bit more colour though, so I grabbed my Flutter Colour paints and added some 'Bahama Blue'; 'Aquamarine Dream' and a few small highlights of 'Cotton Candy Pink' for contrast.

The paint colours worked perfectly with the gorgeous tropical pattern on the Everyday Etc cards I chose to use. (Luckily there is one of these cards in both the 'Good Vibes Only' Everyday Etc Card pack and the coordinating Filler Card pack, and I could resist using both of them!)
Once I had my cards stuck down, I added my photo on top, using another filler card to add a pop of yellow to frame under the top right corner.

I created a small cluster in the top right corner of my photo using a couple of flowers from the 'Good Vibes Only' Die Cut Bits & Bobs pack; a leaf sticker from the Sticky Quotes sheet; and the tan lines flair button from the GVO Flair Button Set #2

My title came from the Die Cut Bits & Bobs pack, along with the leaves and flower I clustered below it. On my background I also added some small pieces of torn washi tape from the washi tape tag included in the 'Good Vibes Only' Full Collection Kit. (There are 5 different designs included on the tag.)

The final cluster I created was to the left of my photo. I fussy cut the beach selfie piece from one of the Everyday Etc cards; and tucked a die cut flower under the corner. I then added two of the phrase stickers from the Sticky Quotes sheet, and another one at the top of my page. 

And with that, my page was complete. I so love how this turned out - that tropical print is so divine (and such a perfect match for the colours in my tattoo!)
If you haven't seen all the new goodies in the shop, head over HERE and check them out. (Besides the 'Good Vibes Only' collection, there are also some fabulous new stencils!)

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Hello Flutterby peeps! Lauren here :)
I am so excited to be guest designer for March for Flutterby Designs and get the chance to work with the amazing 'Good Vibes Only' collection. Since it's a beachy/tropical collection, I pulled out my Hawaii girl's trip photos to start working with but quickly decided on a photo of the four of us before we set of on a zip-lining tour.

I pulled out all of the green elements from the Everyday Etc Cards and Filler cards, as well as some neutral/ black and white cards for contrast. With a bit of creative cutting and positioning, I created the photo mat and title. Some washi tape and a Page Tab were added to the left side for more interest. The 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' element from the Photo Cut Ou Frame 50 sheet was perfect to add on the right because I was so anxious about doing this tour, given I really don't like heights!

The background is a couple of different green acrylic paints smeared over the page with a pallet knife. once that dried I use white acrylic paint to create the zig zags. Green mist was flicked over the page and gold mica flakes adhered randomly.

I used up some of the scraps from the Everyday Etc Cards  and more washi tape to create a secondary embellishment cluster in the top right to balance the layout. The quote 'always take the scenic route' was chosen because the views from the zipline were just incredible.

A couple more embellishments were added then I used a black pen to draw a loose border around the whole thing and it was done! Thanks for looking

Barefoot + Free by Allara Bamforth


Excited to back on the Flutterby Blog this month with the fabulous new 'Good Vibes' collection. I attended a scrapbooking retreat last weekend and was so thrilled to be able to whip out so many pages with this collection because it is so fun and versatile.

I have some beautiful beach photos from our holiday in January and have used this next one in particular as the water at the beach was the most amazing aqua I had ever seen! I really wanted to incorporate these colours into my layout.

I've selected a 12 x 12 watercolour paper base page - as I like how the dylusions inks and lindy's gang inks sit and flow on it and covered the left hand side with clear transparent gloss medium of the new Aloha Stencil. I picked some of my favourite colours to complement the photo from the above mentioned inks.

I have used some Flutterby Paint to sponge throught the Aloha stencil to create some extra accents. Then I've used a variety of embellishments from the Good Vibes collection as listed below.

Good Vibes Only - Filler Cards, Every Day Etc Cards.
Good Vibes Only - Every Day Etc Cards.
Good Vibes Only - Die Cuts Bits and Bobs.
Good Vibes Only - Flair Buttons Set 1
Good Vibes Only - Wood Veneer Bits
Washi Tape from the Good Vibes Full Kit Collection
Blackboard Sticky Quotes

Thanks for checking in and I hope you go and grab yourself some of this awesome collection.

Till next time,

"Family Adventure" by Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone

I'm so excited to be guest designing at Kraft Plus 
this month representing Flutterby Designs!

Here is a look at this month's challenge-

To begin my page I applied some acrylic paint through a 'Sugar Sprinkles' stencil. 
Once it was dry I roughly traced around each shape to give it more of a hand-drawn feel.

The brief was fussy-cutting as well as the sketch, so I decided to fussy cut my photo! 

I also fussy cut a frame from a "Super Cool' Everyday Etc card, and the cool sneaker, 
also from the "Super Cool"  Everyday Etc card pack.

I backed my photo with some Everyday Etc filler cards from the Fair Dinkum Chrissy collection. I've used the 'Family' die cut from the Fair Dinkum Chrissy Bits & Bobs pack as my title.
I've also added some wood veneer 'Wheels', which I painted black.

I've added a 'Life Is Good' and a camera flair, labels, a couple of page tabs 
('fabulous', and 'you're awesome'), enamel dots and some snippet strips.

I hope you can head over to Kraft Plus and check out the challenge. 
You could be in the running to win some fab Flutterby goodies!!

Thanks for looking

Good Vibes Only

Hey Hey Flutterby friends,

How awesome is it when you get new goodies to play with?! I was so excited to receive my DT pack full of the new Good Vibes Only collection, and couldn't wait to get my hands dirty! This range is full of beautiful, bright colours, and bold, fun patterns.

I was lucky enough to receive the 'Migraine Madness' stencil in my kit, which actually reminded me of patterns that you see through a kaleidoscope, and it inspired me to bring in all the bright colours from the collection. 

I used a thin black sharpie and drew around each section of the stencil, going back over the lines afterward in a more free hand style. I repeated this method up and down diagonally across the page. I watered down some Flutter Colour Paint in Raspberry Punch, Orange Goldfish, Bahama Blue, and Green Limousine, and filled in the pieces of the stencil randomly, not taking too much care to be stay within the lines (total rebel!). I used the watered down paint to flick splatters across the page too. 

I then started to layer up some of the Everyday Etc Filler Cards from the Good Vibes Only collection behind my photo, finishing with a layer of fun foam to pop up my photo. I tucked in one of the phrase stickers from Good Vibes Only Sticky Quotes, and added in one of the super cute wood veneer hearts. 
To create my title I fussy cut 'Good Vibes Only' out of one of the Everyday Etc Cards and again popped it up on foam tape (this was not a fun job!). I love that the Everyday Etc Cards give you so many title options!

I finished up the page with a few more phrase stickers, wood veneer pieces, and of course a flair button for good measure!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my layout. I can't wait for you all to start sharing your 'Good Vibes Only' creations with us.

Big Loves,

Beach Fun | Belinda Spencer

Hello Flutterby peeps!

Belinda here today to share my first post for March featuring the stunning new Good Vibes Only Collection.

'Beach Fun' Layout

How awesome is that background paper?!! I LOVE it. In fact the whole paper pck in this range is to die for.

I swiped some gesso over my background paper with a palette knife. Once dry, I stencilled on some gorgeous frangipanni flowers using  the 'Aloha' Stencil and  some Tropicana Teal Flutter Colour Paint. I let that dry before tidying up the edges with a white Sharpie and then doodling around the flowers with a black journalling pen.

I added lots of layers below my photo using some of the fabulous co-ordinating Everyday Etc Filler Cards as well as a 'Honey' Fussy Cut.

I finished by decorating with enamel dots, page tabs, a flair button, wood veneer and more.

Here's what I used:

Have you been over to the shop HERE to order your own Good Vibes Only pack? Make sure you get in quick for this stunning collection. I can't wait to create my next layout with this range.
