Note to my 17 year old self by Allara Bamforth

Hey all,

I'm back on the blog today with a fun layout I've called 'Note to my 17 year old self' using a pic from my Year 12 formal which didn't end up being the best night in the world, dealing with the usual mean girl drama. Learning to 'smile through the bullshit' is one of the biggest lessons you can learn in life and I wish I knew that back then.

I've started off this layout by using three of the Flutter colour paints from the Bright Set - Grape Soda, Raspberry Punch and Sunshine Yellow. I slightly sprayed my page with water and just randomly blobbed over the paint. I then picked up another piece of cardstock and layed it over the top and ran my brayer over. It gives that cool effect a bit like when we were in school and you wanted to create a butterfly and folded your page over. There is the bonus of creating another background for later on.

I then used the He Said She Said Stencil with clear texture paste on the left hand side and a mandala stencil on the right hand side. Next I rubbed a little purple oxide ink over the top to make them stand out.

I used the I Heart You Stencil with some black ink to create some interest and then stamped a I Love washi tape stamp from Carabelle Stamps next to the hearts. I used some of my off cuts from the Good Vibes Only Everyday etc cards to accent the hearts on the other side.

I cut the title out of We Run the World everyday etc cards and some of the hearts from these cards for my wings.

I tucked a Flawsome Page tab in there too and a few quotes from the Blackboard Sticky Quotes. One thing I LOVE about Flutter Colour Paints is being able to pour them into my Fine Line Applicators. The fluid consistency of these paints is perfect for these applicators and I used the black to draw squiggles and circles around my page to finish it off and create some drip features and the top and bottom.

Thanks for tuning into the blog again.

Till next post,

as well as fussy cut the word 'Summer' from an Everyday Etc card.

I added some Wood Veneer pieces and some Stickers
I also added a flair and fussy cut an icypole from an everyday etc card.

Salty Summer Vibes | Tamara Buckler

Hey Hey Scrappy Friends,

Tamara here today to share with you another fun summery layout featuring the new "Good Vibes Only" collection. I have been playing a lot with the pinks and yellows in the collection, but this time I went with the blues and green to create some salty summery feels.

I actually snuck this background paper in from the 'We run the World' 12x12 pack (it's on sale atm!). I love the freehand, loose feeling off the circles and thought it worked with the vibe I was going for. I smeared some Flutter Colour Paint in Green Limousine and Tropicana Teal across the centre of the page. I was super impressed with how the paper handled the paint, it didn't soak in all that much which meant the paper didn't warp and the colours stayed really vibrant.

I layered up this beach-side selfie on some the Everyday Etc Filler Cards, running one piece horizontally to give a landing spot for my embellishments. I added in the 'hello summer' die cut from the Bits and Bobs pack to a fairly empty space in my photo to create my title.

I used one of the flair buttons from the collection, and tucked in some more of the Bits and Bobs around the place. I love the sneaky pops of pink!

I have loved working with this collection to capture our summer memories, the cold is starting to creep in so I am holding on to those as long as I can! I did hear through the grape vine that we have a new collection on its way, and I'm getting excited about sharing that with you!!

Make sure you are sharing your layouts on in the Flutterby Inspiration HQ, we love seeing what you are creating with our awesome products!

Big Loves,

Hello Summer | Belinda Spencer

Hello hello!

Belinda here with you today to share a layout created with the totally fabulous Good Vibes Only collection.

'Hello Summer'

This layout was completely inspired by my son's awesome pineapple skull t-shirt so of course I had to start with the brilliant Knucklehead stencil. This would have to be my favourite stencil ever so I use it at every opportunity. I simply swiped some texture paste over it and let it dry.

Next I stapled on some layers of Everyday Etc Filler Photo Cards and topped with a Photo Card from the range as well as my photo.

Then I layered on as many embellishments as I could fit because the embellies in this collection are so cool!!

I liked the 'one of a kind' quote from the Cool Snippet Strips because my darling son really is. It also gave me the idea to turn one of the texture paste skulls into a one of a kind so I doodled around it with black pen to match the skull on my son's t-shirt. The sunglasses come from the Good Vibes Only Sticky Quick Quotes sheet and just fit the skull perfectly. 

Here's what I used:

- Washi Tape

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today peeps. I hope you are feeling inspired now to have a play with your own stash of Flutterby goodies. Make sure you share your beautiful projects in the Inspiration HQ Facebook Group so we can leave some love.

Beach Vibes | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone!
Sue Plumb here to share my latest design team project with you featuring the awesome 'Good Vibes Only' collection that was recently released. 
We have been enjoying the last remnants of summer here in Qld this week, so I thought it was only fitting to go back and scrap some of my fave summer photos of my kids.

I started this page by laying down some watercolour for my background. I used Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Sprays in blue and gold, which I applied using the packaging technique. I then added some stamping over the top using grey ink and a crackle effect stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps. I also added some tiny splatters of orange ink to bring a little warmth and contrast.

Once my background was dry, it was time to add some papery layers. I used a variety of the 'Good Vibes Only' Everyday Etc filler cards, which I cut into various sized pieces and layered together to form a mat for my photos. I also added a page tab (from the Kraft Notes 5 sheet); torn pieces of washi tape (which comes in the 'Good Vibes Only' Kit); snippets of white punchinella and some frayed gauze; before adding my photos on top.

To create my title, I used several pieces from the 'Good Vibes Only' Wood Veneer Bits pack, as well as a white Tiny Sticky Quote.

I added the wild barefoot & free sticker from the 'Good Vibes Only' Sticky Quote sheet directly to my photo, using some foam tape to pop it up a bit. Underneath the edge of my photo, I added a DIY heart from Charms Creations, topped with a starfish from the wood veneer bits pack.

To balance out my design, I added a wood veneer pineapple and another small starfish to the left side of my photos. I also added another couple of white Tiny Sticky Quotes to my page.

To finish off my page, I decided it need more teal colour brought into it; so I used a Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Cube to add some areas of colour, as well as some extra splatters around the page.  
I then added a few small teal coloured hearts from the Rainbow Heart sticker sheet; stamped a couple of phrases and the date and I was done.

Thanks for stopping by so I could share this with you. If you haven't got your hands on the 'Good Vibes Only' collection yet, or checked out the other recent items in the store (including stencils and stickers), then click HERE to see them all.
Until next time, happy scrapping!

Summer Project Life | Adele

Hello scrappy peeps!

I'm up with my first DT project for Flutterby Designs and I can't wait to share my my fresh and beachy Project Life page with you all!

I used a range of bits and pieces from the Good Vibes Only collection, which matched perfectly with some recent pics we took of little Archie's sand exploration.

I loved the flexibility of using mainly black and white photos, as it gave me a lot more freedom to play with the rad bright colours in this collection. 

As I didn't need to include a great deal of journaling with this page, I was able to have some fun and create little embellishment clusters using a mix from the ephemera pack and wood veneer to make filler cards. 

I've also filmed a process video creating this layout from start to finish! I even sneakily altered one of the ephemera pieces to suit my layout...did you spot it?? Hope you enjoy the video!

Hello Summer, Good Coffee Only by Allara Bamforth

Happy Weekend,

I'm back on the blog again with a super colourful layout which was one very happy mistake. I totally had something else in mind whilst creating this page but what I had intended didn't quite work but just goes to show if you just experiment it might not turn out so bad.

I started off with the wonderful 12x12 Good Vibes only paper pack and used Ray of Sunshine for the background and fussy cut some of the design from Garden of paradise.

I  then cut a circle out of some white mixed media cardstock and used some Flutter Colour Paint in  Raspberry Punch mixing it through some texture paste then dragging across the Aloha stencil to fill the circle. I picked a couple of favourite Tim Holtz Oxide inks and draggedd them across the mat and lightly added the colour sprited with water over the background of circle.

Once it was dry, I traced the circle shape on my Ray of Sunshine paper and using Flutter Colur Paint - Grape Soda, Raspberry Punch and Bahama Blue kinda of dotted paint around the traced circle and then went to town with a little water spritzing whilst rotating the paper so the paint would run outwards.

I then layered up my photo using the Good Vibes Only Everyday filler cards and cut a title out of the Good Vibes Only Everyday Etc Cards. I finished off with words from the Good Vibes Only Sticky Quotes and a word from the Blackboard Sticky Quotes  as well as one of the Good Vibes Only Flair Buttons Set 2 and some gold thread.

I love how ideas with the Good Vibes Only collection are limitless! It's just so much fun to put layouts together with this collection.

Thanks for stopping by! Please stop by the Flutterby Shop and pick up some of the fantastic products.

Till next post,

Allara xx

(can you spot it under the layers??!!)

I added a 'barefoot' sticker, and used the 'sunshine' wood veneer piece as my title. 
I also added a flair button and page tab

Good Vibes Only | Tamara Buckler

Hey Hey Flutterby Friends,

I am back again today to share another layout using the awesome new Good Vibes Only collection.

I have used the awesome 'Happy' 12x12 paper from the Paper Pack as the background for this layout, and have added lots of messy gesso and Flutter Colour paint to the centre of the page. I also added some extra texture by using texture paste through my fav 'Little Big Love' stencil.

I have used two full 6x4 photos which is unusual for me, but these pics of my beautiful little miss at the beach were perfect for this collection. I did trim them down a little so that I could matt them on some of the Everyday Etc Filler cards from the collection, and popped up the right photo with some fun foam.

I used the acrylic piece from the collection kits for my title, and backed it with another piece from the Everyday Etc Filler cards. To complement the title I used some pieces from the Die Cuts pack.

To create my cluster to the right, I pulled a few bits and pieces from other ranges and a white chevron from Charm's Creations to highlight the beautiful flair button from the Flair Button Set 2. 

I used another Charm up the top of my pic to provide another little spot for a cluster, and used another die cut from the collection as well as wood veneer bit which I coloured with some Flutter Colour paint.

I love this layout, is so bright and fun, but still makes the photos the real focus of the page.

Hope you've enjoyed stopping by and checking out this layout today. Make sure you get in and scrap your summer memories before the cold sets in!

Big Loves,
Tam xo
