Guest Designer Layouts - Jasmine Shea

Hi everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekends, and doing lots of scrapping! I've got some gorgeous layouts to share with you today, created by our talented Guest Designer Jasmine Shea...

The Monkey Buttons would just about have to be one of my favourite buttons ever, and it looks totally adorable on Jasmine's cute page, along with a Bird Button, a doily and some twine. And how gorgeous is this next layout?

I love how Jasmine has used a Floral Button, Gorgeous Girl Button, Denim Flower, Lace Flower and a couple of Doilies to embellish this adorable page.

Thanks so much for creating these for us Jasmine! If you'd like to see more of Jasmine's beautiful layouts, then make sure you check out her blog HERE!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Girly Buttons - Hayles

It was so great to see such a great response from the last sale.....I was lucky enough to get hold of some new buttons.....and love the new polymer clay buttons, so looking forward to playing with them!!

Today I will share two very girly layouts using a couple of buttons and some twine and also an older polymer clay button!

This layout was created using a Creative Scrappers sketch and the little ballerina buttons were absolutely Perfect!

I added the red and pink clay button as well with some twine to finish it off. These clay buttons are so easy to use, you don't have to thread twine through them, but I think it just adds some extra interest.

Another recent layout I have done using some girly buttons was the July Sketch at Annas Craft Cupboard and I have used some pale pink twine as well as a pale pink floral button.

and a centre piece of a doily leftover from a previous project (sorry about the shadows on the pic!)

well I am looking forward to coming back with some new layouts with some of the new buttons from the last sale...till then!

Lots of Clusters - Anne

Today I thought I would share with you some of my recent creations with Purple Pumpkin goodies. I have shared most of these on my personal blog already, but thought that as they contain so much Purple Pumpkin, I would share them here.

This picture was taken just a couple of weeks ago when my Mother was visiting and we got to catch up with My sister-in-law and the kids. This is all my parents Grandchildren, all lined up.

I thought the monkey button was totally appropriate for this particular picture as they are all a bunch of monkeys.
This LO is of a friend of mine's son. A totally devine picture I think and as it was black and white I decided to group it with some yummy basic grey papers. I also found a whole group of the felt flowers which I groupd with a little bit of Prima (the stars and spotty flower) to make a unique cluster.

A few pearls and a chippy birdie in a cage and you have my cluster.

Finally I thought I would share a quick card I made the other day. I used some stamps I have and coordinated them with a doily and button to make this flower card.

Well I hope you all got what you were after in the AMAZING birthday Sale. If you haven't voted already you should pop by the Purple Pumpkin Facebook page and vote for your favourite LO for our Guest DT position.

Thanks for Looking - Anne

Pretty Florals with Belinda

Good Morning!!! I hope everyone managed to get what they wanted at the sale on Friday. There was so much gorgeous product to choose from and I can't wait to see it in real life. Time to start stalking the post office!!

It seems like ages since I posted here!! So today I am catching up with three layouts featuring some oh so pretty floral buttons. For this first one, I have used palette #68 over at The Color Room. The button matched the color scheme perfectly...

...Here's a close up of the gorgeous button...

...and here is a layout I completed for the Get Picky July Sketch using some Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime papers. It seemed as though Sam's floral button was tailored made to go with these papers...

...and here is a fabulous babushka button. I love these!!...

...and now for something a little different!! The subject may not be to everyone's taste but it shows that you can use a floral button on any sort of layout....even one about a SPIDER!! I used palette #67 over at The Color Room for this layout...

Well I better stop myself there. I told you I had a stockpile of layouts to share and there are still more to come.

Thanks for stopping by. It is so good to see so many fabulous entries for the July Sketch and the Guest Designer Competition. I can't wait to see who our Guest Designer will be. I wonder.....
