Youtube Videos

WOW!! That's all I can say. I haven't blogged for quite a few months, but it is Christmas school holidays now here in sunny Queensland, Australia so I have sixe whole weeks to do lots (hopefully) of blog posts.

Today I am sharing two YouTube videos I have done in the past few weeks, and hopefully I will be doing some more soon.

So my first video is a walk through of my December Daily I am doing this year. I will be defiantly be doing another video of this when I get my photos (which should be printing right now at my local photo lab).  

And the second video is of a haul I got at Spotlight last week. This was my very first haul video and hopefully when I do get more goodies I can do more videos like this.
So I hope you enjoyed watching these and I will be very soon with either more videos or layout shares.
Have a great day.

Project Life Share - Weeks 19, 21 & 23

Hello beautiful people, today I am here to finally share some Project Life layouts. It will be a little long blog post. Since I haven't done this layout share in a while I will be skipping a few weekly layouts as I have so many to share.

Today I will be sharing 3 layouts of Weeks 19, 21 and 23.

Week 19 -
So for this week of Project Life I based my cards around Amy Tangerine's "Rise and Shine" collection. I used just the 6x6 paper pad which I picked up at Spotlight here in Australia.

Left Side -

Right Side -

So I am have been the only one who kept their sticker from the desk during NAPLAN, but I wanted to put it in my album.

I made all these cards in the layout using the paper pad and some American Crafts white textured cardstock. I also added a few bits and pieces of embellishments, including some wood veneer, sequin trim and some tiny words.

And my title card is a piece of paper, some paper cut a parts, thickers and a cut a part calendar.

And just another title card for show time.
Week 21 -
This weeks layout is using the "Love Notes" Pocket page card kit. I love the beautiful water colour cards and love how this layout turned out.

This card kit include die cut cards: example, the green stripes. I just layered another 3x4 card under the die cut card because I didn't want it to be see through.

Just a different way to add a title. Add it straight onto the photo.

Week 23 -
And finally the last layout which is just a single page layout because I didn't do much this week. I used the beautiful Maggie Holmes,  Project Life core kit "Open Book".

Love, love how this photo turned out with some embellishments I had left over from the "Open Book "  collection.

Again I have just added some stickers right to the photo to add a title.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post. I would love you to leave some love down in the comments, let me know what you liked in this post and what you would like to see here on my blog.
Have a great day/night.

Studio Fourteen 40 - GUEST DESIGNER - #2 - 'Lovely'

Hello beautiful people, I am back to share my second blog post over on the Studio Fourteen 40 blog.
Hope you enjoy.

Lydia xxx

Hello beautiful Studio 1440 blog readers, I am happy to be back to share a quick card using some of the Studio 1440 embellishments.

The flair is from the Gelato collection and it added just a beautiful pop of colour to this card.

Oh My! I loved this 'Loved' wood veneer that you can find in the shop.

And as I mentioned in my previous blog post is that I love to add a little something where there is a little negative space, so I used my favourite wood veneer - Arrow Heads which finished this cute little card off.
Hope you liked this blog post and make sure to check out the shop and buy some goodies.

Studio Fourteen 40 - GUEST DESIGNER - #1 - 'Hello Warwick'

Hey there everyone, Lydia here to share my first creation using my goodies I received as part of being a Guest Designer.

So the first project to share with you today is a 12×12 traditional layout using Shimelle ‘True Stories’ Paper and lots of Studio 1440 embellishments.

I really enjoyed using the Studio 1440 embellishments on this layout. I think these gorgeous little additions just finish the page/project off.

 Here I used the GelatoUse Your Words and the Everyday Life – Use Your Words. Also did I tell you I LOVE tiny words? They are just the perfect little piece of embellishment to add instead of journaling.

 Look how cute those Spunky Specs are, I loved them. I have no idea why I added it to this layout but it was just too darn cute. (Spunky Specs are located in the Laser Cut category) The flair is from the Gelato collection.


The Thrift ShopLittle Labelz  & the All the Details –  paper clips are perfect to add for a little space to journal.


I love to add a little something at the top corner of a layout if there is negative space and these Arrowhead and Arrow wood veneers were perfect as well as the Disco Fever Gems.

I hope you all enjoyed my first blog post here at Studio 1440 and can’t wait to share more creations.

12x12 Layout Share Friday - #1 - 'Together We're Better'

So I back with another 12x12 layout share for this week.

Since the last time I did these posts I had Project Life share on Fridays but I have changed it to Thursday so I can do two 12x12 layout shares a week

So today I am sharing a layout called 'Together We're Better".
This layout is using a photo from my school camp and the title came from our school camp motto.

For this layout I mainly used Shimelles - "True Stories" collection, but added a few other bits and pieces.

I used a verity of alphas for the title and I love how it turned out.

And I used gold thread for the first time on this layout and loved how it finished the layout.

I hope you have a great end to your week and enjoy the weekend.

12x12 Layout Share Monday - #4 - 'Life Is Good'

Good morning beautiful people. I am back with my weekly schedule, did you know I haven't done this I since July? (YES July!!) so today I am sharing a 12x12 layout I did a while back.

This layout is called "Life Is Good" -
I really love how this layout turned out. I used a older photo and it was my first layouts using the beautiful Heidi Swapp Wonderlust collection.

I loved using these Heidi Swapp stickers that I received in the mail with my Jot Memory dex card.

Love these puffy stickers from one of Heidi Swapp's older collections called "Favourite Things".

I don't normally journal in my 12x12 layouts but lately I have really enjoyed it and I think it finishes the layouts.

So I hope you enjoyed looking at this layout and I will be back on Thursday with a Project Life Layout share and then again on Friday with another 12x12 layout share.

Enjoy your week.

Issue 11 Jot Magazine Feature

Morning beautiful blog readers. Today I am going to share something exciting that some of you may have read in one of my last blog posts, about having one of my layouts in Issue 11 of the Jot Magazine.

When I sent in some of my Project Life layouts I didn't at all expect to be chosen to be featured, I was beyond excited when I got a email from Kim Archer asking if she could use it.

You can find my layout on page 186.

Make sure you check out this fun filled and inspiring Scrapbooking Magazine here.
I will be back soon with a full blog post will close up photos of this layout.

Have a great day.

Meeting Renae

Hey, hey everyone, I am back to share some exciting stuff that I did on Thursday 24th of September.

So... We travelled to the Gold Coast here in Queensland (which is 1 1/2 - 2 hours away) to pick up some paddle boards. And while we were there I wanted to duck into the Spotlight store at Ashmore and to see if Nae was working. Well I surprised my beautiful online Scrap Sister as she was walking out of work.

It was so exciting to finally meet the beautiful Renae who is one of the owners of the awesome The Scrappery Kit Club and is also heynaedaily on Youtube. (Make sure you check her awesome creative videos out)

And of course we had to get a photo of both of us together to put into our Project Life albums.

While I was in this AWESOME Spotlight that is the best and hugest one I have ever been into. I had to get some bargains with my birthday money.
I got the beautiful Heidi Swapp September Skies Project Life Core Kit, some Amy Tangerine Stitched Puffy Stickers and Wood Veneer Frames, We Are Memory Keepers 4x4 Page Protectors and one of the new Heidi Swapp Project Life 4x4 Cards from the Prismatic collection.
I will be back soon with my Week 38 Project Life spread using some of these goodies.
Have a great day.
