I can't tell you how excited I was when Anita asked me to be GDT
over at Flutterby Designs this month.  I love, love, love all of her products
and use them on EVERY LAYOUT I create.
Gorgeous flairs, wooden veneers, titles, mixed media cards
- you name it and Anita has it !!

I really love how my first LO turned out.  The colors in the mixed media cards worked perfectly with the colors in the photo.  Who says you have to use these cards in pocket scrapping??
I've gessoed the background and then sprayed Heidi Swapp Color Shine.
Layers have then been created using stamps and stencils, with lots of gelatos.

Here are some close ups of the awesome goodness from Flutterby Designs...
 I didn't think the wooden title needed anything done to it.
Love how it stands out against the photo and makes a statement on this page.
The gorgeous mixed media flair is a must have !!
How fabulous are the mixed media cards?
I will definately be adding them to my stash !!
And I love how easy it is to create layers and dimension just by adding
a couple of photo cut outs.

Karen has used Flutterby flairs, Wood Bits - Circles & Photo Cuts
for this one.

For this one she has used Flutterby flairs, Wood Bits 'everyday' title & Photo Cuts.

This is Karen last Guest DT post for us this month & it's AMAZEBALLS!!!!
This project life spread is bursting at the seems with all things Flutterby!
I love that the mixed media cards, create a fun & arty BG without the mess!!
Karen has used the Everyday Etc - Mixed Media card set, Flair buttons,
3x4 Photo card (from set 1), Photo Cut-Outs & Wood Bits (Sml hearts, Sml Stars,
'family' title, 3x4 Camera Card, 3x4 Polaroid 'everyday' & Page Tabs).

 Don't forget about our sale too - great chance to stock up on some
Flutterby goodies, with 25% off ALL flair buttons
(Sale ends Midnight Sun 25th May, 2014)

You can check out more of Karen's work at her blog

Enjoy the weekend everyone & happy creating!!! Anita

 Photo Booth Fun!
I love this craze! Photo Booths are just so much fun especially when you jump in with your children. 

This layout celebrates a fun little moment I shared
with my babies. 

With the use of more Flutterby Design products
(flairs & photo tabs).
 Here is my photo booth fun layout.

Project Life & Mixed Media = Scrappy Fun

You know those inspirational thoughts that come to
you in the middle of the night... well this was it. 

While creating this project I was thinking (most of the time) this is going to go horribly wrong! But when adding the final touches I found myself pleasantly surprised at the result. 

Here is my latest project for Flutterby Designs

Incorporating the use of Flutterby flairs, fussy cuts,
photo tabs and wood veneers.

Ok so things may look a little different...
I have separated my personal blogging from the
Flutterby Designs blog.
So this is look Flutterby Designs BLOG!!

I'm really excited by this, as it gives
Flutterby Designs a more professional look
(without all my own bits on it LOL).

The Flutterby Designs blog is my old
blog address (handy thought I know)

And my personal blog's address is:
Which I have called 'Everyday Created'

I have created this AWESOME little blinkie
for any Flutterby fans to save off & put on
your own blogs!! So why not share the LOVE ox

Make sure you save BOTH blogs to your 
browser favourites, as we will continue to
keep inspiring you!!!

Thanks for stopping by Anita :)
