Cherish this Moment - Rikki G

 Good morning how are you? Hope you are finding some creative time, I did over the past weekend when I attended a local retreat, I did manage to create 9 layouts which I am super happy about. But on a positive note it did wake up the mojo which isnt a bad thing.

You can follow along with a process video:

So with Rustic Blossom there are a number of large cogs and flowers in the corners of the pages so dont be afraid to cut them out, you can blend out there edges with chipboard and fussy cut flowers from the Exclusive Cut Apart sheets.

Dont be afraid to cut apart chipboard to give direction around your layout.

Mix art stones and glitter the more layers the better.....

Coffee Love by Charmane Koch

 I don't know about you but I NEED my Coffee! 

My layout I am sharing with you today is of a couple of coffees Ash & I had at a cute Coffee Shop in the Central Market in South Australia after an overnight stay at the Hilton!

I just loved the coffee table/bench that we were sitting at - with the old newspapers! Love the quirkiness of it... but must of all LOVE the coffee! {and probably needed it after a big night too haha}

I used mostly Grateful Heart goodies mixed in with a few other Bee Arty goodies which I will list here for you!

I started off with Kraft Cardstock as the base. I did cut out a square from it so that I could matte me photo. I did this with a Black Cardstock piece as well, which I trimmed slightly to use as a matte for the Grateful Heart Paper that I used for the background of my layout - love the woodgrain paper! You can get the full Grateful Heart paper pack for only $20! It's such a timeless pack!

But why not get the Stencils, Dies & Stamps that go with the papers? I have used these all many times for different projects! The BUSY BEES are only $70!

I trimmed about 1 cm off each side of the Faith paper and distressed the edges, I stuck this to the Black Cardstock followed by the Kraft.

I tore the Hope paper to give a rough edge, distressed and curled the paper over to expose the other side slightly. I fussy cut part of the leftover paper to tuck behind the ripped cardboard & my photo matte.

I cut out from Kraft & White Cardstock a number of floral/leafy dies - Sweet Floral, Aussie Leaves & the love from the Flower Talk set - this I used for part of my title...

I then added flowers & wood veneers & bits from my stash...

Of course a Charms Creations Book Page Heart was a perfect match...

I also cut out a Butterfly from one of the Butterfly Cut Aparts -  so many to choose from!

And a Flair from the Assorted Flairs from Bee Arty.

This layout was one of my favourites at the Charms Creations At Home Retreat I organised - it was a Scraplift of a Tina Steinborner layout! It just came together so easily - don't you just love it when that happens?

Here's the Dies I used: 

Sweet Floral - CURRENTLY ONLY $10!
Aussie Leaves - a DEFINITE must have!
Flower Talk - perfect for titles! Another must have to your Die Collection!

Thanks for popping by! I hope I've inspired you with this GORGEOUS Paper Collection!
