Sketch Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are creating using this sketch. I am in need of a few boy's cards so Luka came out to play again. I used some simple banners, enamel dots, glittery chipboard letters and die cuts to put together a little scene for Luka - I am quite happy with how bright and fun it turned out :)

It's Back to School in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are celebrating Back to School. For us Aussies this is a strange time of year to celebrate this as our school year runs the same as the calendar year. 

I chose to use Retro Luka - maybe because we were watching Grease the other day - LOL. I typed out and printed off the sentiment on my computer and added texture with dies and embossing.

La-La Land August 2014 Club Kit Showcase



There's something new in La-La Land - a CLUB kit! It's a monthly subscription based club which has 2 different options - a PRODUCT kit or a PROJECT kit. You can find all the information HERE. Just note that Club products (stamps and dies) will not be available for purchase outside of the kits until 12 months after the release!!!

 Each Tuesday members of the La-La Land DT will be showcasing projects using the current kits. Today is the launch of these showcases and how excited am I to be kicking them off with my 2 projects! 


My first project showcases a few of the stamps only - no dies on here - simply a masked scene with some colour and a twine bow :)


And for my second project I created a fish bowl shaped card on my Silhouette Cameo, layered on some die cuts and then popped the stamped images up using 3D foam pads.

Aurora Wings Challenge - Under the Sea


This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges our challenge is ......


I chose to use Mitzi's gorgeous Mermaid with Pearls in Kelp image. I have seen this coloured up a few times and was itching to get some colour onto her myself. Mitzi has some totally GORGEOUS mermaids and merboys in her collection which will suit every taste for this challenge. 

I have been asked HOW I colour these images up as they can look fairly daunting when you see the linework. But once you start adding colour they seem to come together. The trick is to just START! :)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Copics Used - Skin (E11, E00, E000, R20, R11) plus G85, G82, YG25, YG23, YG2`, YG11, E42, E18, E15, E13, B12, B00, B000, C4, C2, V17, V15, V12, V09, YR27, YR23, Y15

Tags and Tickets in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are incorporating tags and tickets into our designs. I started off with one of La-La Lands older images - I love re-visiting these as they are what got me hooked on La-La Land to start with. I added some die cut tags behind the circle and popped on some ticket sentiments. Some days a card just comes together effortlessly - this was one of those days and probably why I'm so happy with it ;)

Colour Challenge Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using the colours from the picture to my left. This has been one of my favourite colour combos since I began papercrafting. The soft purples through to pinks complimented with the greens remind me of a tropical paradise so Hula Marci seemed the perfect choice of image to use.

Marie Nyantoinette by Aurora Wings



The Aurora Wings DT decided to have a special showcase using the gorgeous new image Marie Nyantoinette on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog. You just HAVE to go over and see the amazing takes on this stunning image. If you're not sure about the history behind the wigged cat Mitzi explains that all in the post too :) It's amazing the things you can learn while enjoying your crafting passion.

I've gone with my favourite colour - green - it always makes me smile! The sentiment was already printed on the patterned paper and worked in beautifully with my design.

Dots and Spots in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are seeing Dots and Spots everwhere. I just couldn't go past using these FABULOUS papers - I just love those oversized dots. I usually start with my image but this card was worked backwards - I had the layout basics planned and then decided to choose which fabulous La-La Land image would work with it. From there it all just came together - gotta love it when that happens :)

Anything Goes in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land the DT have been given an "Anything Goes" challenge. I have to say I find these challenges the worst as I have no starting place to work from. I fluff around trying to come up with something and change my mind at least a dozen times. I had NO IDEA what this was going to be until it was almost done - LOL. 

I started with an image (changed several times) and some funky paper to go with it (shame I covered most of it up!). As you can see I ended up with a mini easel card - I love playing with sizes and scale doing these. The flower is a ribbon flower I made.
