Twiddleybitz, Prima and Publications

Hello, Hello, HELLO!!

It's been a little while so I will warn you that a long post is coming up LOL!!

Lots to share :)

First up some exciting news for me....

Come and say HI to me at the TWIDDLEYBITZ booth at the

June 9 - 11, 2012 June Long Weekend             Open 9am – 5pm dailyBrisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, South Bank

I'll be there along with 

Mr and Mrs Twiddley, Sandy Wallace, Jennifer Hodge and also the very talented Lisa Kamphius and special guest Maria Featon.

So be sure to say hello to us all and check out our bitz!!
I have lots of projects that I have been working on for the show

Here are a couple of sneak peaks that I can share

Another project that I worked on earlier in the year can now be seen in the current Scrapbook Creations issue # 93.

On Page 89 you are invited to a carnival birthday party

And in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 14 NO 6

This was my take on the easy as 1,2,3 Sketch challenge which I was invited to participate with.

Some lovely Prima and Twiddleybitz combined for this one.

And now onto some recent Prima scrappy shares.

We have been having some fun scraplifting our fellow DT gals.
I had the pleasure of taking inspiration from fellow Prima designer Anne Jo Lexander.  

This is Anne Jo Lexander's layout 'So this is us you say?'

Anne Jo has a fabulous sense for negative space design, arrangement and detail.  Her creations are a breath of fresh air and at times can be whimsical.   I particularly love how her creations will feature multi photo combinations which tell a story; often of an everyday occurrance.  Perfectly placed embellishing allows her photos to shine and hand written journaling tells us the story.

This is my inspiration took me

I have incorporated the light and dark toning and adapted the design arrangement by rotating it.  The embellishing was moved to vertically through the photo's rather than the along the photo edge.  I also loved the little rows of the Say It In Crystals hearts across the photo edge and instead of replicating, I have incorporated hearts in my embellishing.

And I will now finish with one more Prima project, this time created with the super fun Yuki collection.  This one was featured for our special Designer Day on the Prima blog.
The Yuki collection is also a mid release which is now available in stores.  I have also featured some of the resistant canvas butterflies and wooden elements.
Notecards were used to layer behind the main photo.
Some banners were created from patterned paper.  These were combined with some hand cut elements, chipboard and a sprinkling of blooms.
