Lizzy Hill ~ Wishing I was HERE!

And 'here' would be Paris. Sigh. Did this last month for CSI, where I was lucky enough to be featured!
  Can you see the Purple Pumpkin Store Star...or flower, actually!!!
 And below, I thought I'd share how I used some washi...backed it onto white card, then attached it to this little frame with I filled with Glossy Accents - added some Crackle Accents on the frame itself!
 Thanks for looking ~ happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

Today is perfect - Monique Liedtke

Last month I joined a mood board challenge over the Hip Kit Club and I created this layout with Crate Paper's "Styleboard" collection and of course a few of Purple Pumpkin's goodies: 

I used the super fun yellow dotted fabric button

There're so many fun goodies to choose from in the Purple Pumpkin store, often I just can't choose what to use! 

Hope I've inspired you to scrap a bit today! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello There....


Well I hope everyone is enjoying the school holidays. The first term went so quick...good that way.
My girls are going to be kicking back in their PJ's and relaxing.

Today I'm sharing the Stuck layout for the 1st April release.

Had a lot of fun creating this layout...sort of matched the fun my 3 girls were having at the park on this particular day.

Here are a couple of close ups:

Layering of dolieys and a fabric button looks so good together.

Tickets are great to stick out from behind embellishments.

My second layout I'm sharing today has been created for Sketches with A Twist.

Here are a few close ups:

Thanks for stopping by the Purple Pumpkin Blog today....

A mixed media canvas by Yvonne Yam

Hello there! It's Yvonne here to share my mixed media canvas.

I love that there are so many options for fabric buttons at the Purple Pumpkin store. Can you spot the ones I used? [The vintage girl, the pink polka-dots and the bloom prints]

No matter what your style is, there's always something at the Purple Pumpkin store for you. :)

Live Brightly - Monique Liedtke

If you would ask me what my favorite product is in the Purple Pumpkin store I would say the FABRIC buttons!! They are so awesome! There're so many different designs, colors, sizes ... there's always one that is just perfect for your project!!

Like this layout I created with a sketch from Creative Scrappers and the "Welcome Spring" collection from Imaginisce. I kept feeling something was missing until I thought of the PP tree fabric button!

Here's a close-up, isn't it perfect?

There're so many fun elements for your projects to be found in the Purple Pumpkin store! Hope you'll take a moment to check it out!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Till next time!

A Layout about a Dog - Lizzy Hill

Hey there! My most favest Purple Pumpkin shop goodie I've used on this page is the doggy button. It has such PERSONALITY!!
LOL! See what I mean? Here's my Wally dog page that I made for a Kreative Koncepts challenge featuring this button:
I also used my MOTEX WRITER - a hint - back it onto cardstock....makes it easier to attach!
And of course, I've stamped then tucked a few tickets around the show - here's one tucked in above Wally's photo:
Thanks for looking! And have a wonderful scrappy day, wherever you are in the world:))
