They're Kitting Us!

Hi everyone... Lacintha here just wanting to pop in and let you know that "Upsy Daisy Designs" product is now finding its way into a few fabulous kits.

We're so excited about this that we'd like to showcase the kit companies which feature our product in their kits.

This month, we found out about a lovely little kit club, based in Ontario, Canada.
Art Freckles is the brainchild of Shannon Wyman and is a quaint and sweet online source for monthly kits and the most adorable add-ons.

They have feautured our "Man about Town" line in their February kit, and you can see the kit in its entirety *here*.

Don't forget to pop into gallery to see what their talented team has done with the kit.

As an added bonus, the "Art Freckles" team hosted "Upsy Daisy" owners, Teri and Nicole, on their forum for a chat.
You can read the questions and answers to that chat *here*

Now remember, we love showcasing the kit companies which are showcasing our product.
So if you have a company, or know of one which is using, or planning to use Upsy Daisy product in their kits, just drop us a line at info@upsydaisydesigns.com and let us know :)

ATC are so fun to make and a great way to use up scraps. I love to make them an add them to a card! The standard ATC size is 2 1/2 X 3 1/2.

They also make perfect little cards on their own to give away. I gave the "love" one to my DH for Valenhearts Day :)

Sometimes the best things in life are the things left
unsaid and are just shown. Actions always speak louder
than words and when it comes the little ones in our
lives the only thing left to do is act! This 12x6 page was
made for such a time. These two definitely took me
by surprise and stole me heart.

I have always been a fan of layers so here is a BUNCH!!!
On this page I used Upsy Daisy's Unwritten line and
Little Ones Seals! There are some extra added goodies
which the Unwritten line inspired me to use as well. This
line screams heart felt sentiments, love, and
romance perfect for this month of February or when you
simply just want to express yourself in silent thought.
Until next time have a wonderful time creating!!!

Boys to Men

It has been a pleasure to work with the "Man About Town" range of papers this week.

As a mother of three boys I often struggle to find appropriate papers and embellishments for their layouts - well, problem solved!

These papers are soft, masculine and subdued. They seem to suit any type of layout theme with any kind of photo.
One of the types of photos I have tried with the Man About Town range this week has been Black and White portraits.

Take a look at this and tell me whether you think they just fit perfectly for black and white photos (or even sepia):

This Layout "fell into place" with ease due to those papers being so wonderfully co-ordinated.
The Argyle pattern I have used is a very simple one to create - simply cut out several diamonds from your patterned papers and adhere them in a straight line.
When you have finished sticking them down, draw a line through the centre of each diamond - first one way, then the opposite way making a cross in the centre of each diamond.
The argyle pattern reflects the wonderful pattern on the "Grafton" paper in the background. Combined with those gorgeous blues and soft greens it makes a fabulous boy page.
Have fun and happy scrapping girls!
