Shabby or graphic?

I got a little shabby on this "For my friend" gift bag! All I do to get my shabby look is dry brush a little white acrylic paint on all my patterned paper edges. I had this 3D chipboard cherry in my scrapbooking stash and was able to match it perfectly to the papers in the Cupcake line! I so love it when that happens.

And, the Vroom line is seriously cute for little boys! I kept this card design fairly simple with clean lines. The wavy line and arrow provide movement to keep your eyes going.

Whether the look you're going for is shabby or graphic, Upsy Daisy Designs has something for everyone!

Happy creating! :)

Sweet Cupcake!

Ever had one of those days in summer when you can just lounge around outside, playing with the kids, relaxing with a cool drink and soaking in the warmth?
I've got to tell you, over here in Australia that seems like a dream at the moment! LOL - we are in the middle of winter here. And yet, with the typically strange Aussie climate, we are having glorious warm days when we can play outside for hours, soaking up the sun.

So here is a layout to celebrate the two things I love most - warm, sunny days and taking photos of my kids.


And some close up shots of the details....



How about having a try at making some of those little flowers yourself? Just punch out some circles from cardstock, and then cut some wedges into the centre and voila! Layer them for a cute flower shape.

And I don't know about you, but I am a complete sucker for pretty, girly paper. These papers are from the CUPCAKE line and they are so cute! Spots, Dots and Scalloped borders - what more could you ask for in creating that perfect bright and cheerful page?

Add some of the coordinating RUB ONS and you are good to go!

Have fun creating your summer pages girls!
Take care,
Sares x
