Timeless Twine: July Monthly Planner Page

Hello there! Can you believe that half the year is over and we are already in July? Today, I’m sharing my July monthly page from my planner on Timeless Twine’s blog.

In line with Summer, I went with a bright color scheme for the month – yellow and raspberry pink. These colors are perfect together and I love how the lemonade twine and raspberry pink  twine from Bella Creationz are perfect for me to use to embellish these pages with.

I wound these twine around each letter of “July” to add color to the page. I also love the geotag stamp found in the planNERD 2 stamp set. I used it in each day’s box and added the date to it. Finally, I also used the Hello Summer Stamp set to embellish these pages further. Add on a splash of yellow dots to the background and I was done!

Thanks for joining me today. All the products I used to create this project are linked below:

Clique Kits: Life is Full of Joy

Hi there! Here’s another page I created recently using items from Clique Kits store. I can’t imagine how fast time has gone by! This photo was taken three years back, when my little girl just turned two and we were only a family of three. With her in our lives, each day is full of fun and joy!

That gorgeous postcard that is exclusively designed by Clique Kits was certainly appropriate for this page and I love all the wonderful in house designs CK comes up with. Once I knew that I wanted to feature that postcard and the photo on this page, I decided to tilt all my elements at an angle and took it all from there.

I love that bright yellow found Chickaniddy’s 365 collection and decided to go with a predominantly yellow and black color scheme. Loads of circles on this page as well, which I die cut from the patterned papers in the collection, as well as hand drew some.

Once I was happy with my design, I stitched on the row of circles in the middle of the page and layered various journaling cards around the photo and postcard. I think tilting elements on a page certainly brings about a certain degree of fun and I was certainly thrilled with the overall effect.

Hi there! I have this photo lying on my table for a while now and when Clique Kits sent me this load of yummy stuff from Chickaniddy’s 365 collection, I knew it was perfect for this photo.

I kept the page simple, focusing on how thankful I am for our being together everyday. I liked the strip of boxes which had the days of the week labeled on them and used that as an anchor on the right side of the page. I went on to layer various patterned papers and journal cards around my photo.

For my title, I kept it easy by using the ampersand from 7 Paper. This was layered on top of a journal card, before adding a couple of flairs to the page. Love the flairs from Cliques. They are always so beautiful and the quality is amazing! I added a ribbon to the corner of the photo, sprinkled on some Liquid Pearl dots and white paint and was happy.

Thanks for stopping by. Should you be interested in the materials used to create this page, they are available (other than the ribbon) in the Clique Kits store. AND if you use SOPHIE10, you get a further 10% discount off your purchase. There’s a massive sale on there right now. So get shopping! =)

Timeless Twine: Summer Love Card

Hello there! Sharing a card I made for Summer on Timeless Twine’s blog today. While we do not celebrate the 4th of July here in Singapore, I really love the color combination of white, red and blue. I decided to create a card that has loads of layers and fun star elements, using the said color combi.

Summer Love Card FN

I started my layering with some awesome corrugated cardboard that came in the packaging of my happy mail from Timeless Twine. Thereafter, I placed a rosette on top of a silver doily, before topping this off with a star-like bloom made from a zipper. Finally, I topped it off with a firecracker twine star that I created by winding twine around a scalloped circle.

The entire card is completed with some gold and silver sequins, some loose twine and stunning red ribbons. Top it off with a stamped greeting using the Hello Summer Stamp Set and I have a card ready to send off to a loved one.

Here are the links to the products I used. Have fun creating this Summer!

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Say Cheese!

Here’s one of the little man using the new collection “Made With Awesome”. These days, when I say “smile!”, he charges towards the camera and lifts one finger to his cheek – tricks he picked up from his sister. Love this happy, accidental photo I found in my camera though.

Clique Kits: Fun Adventures

Hi there! Being home with my kids daily sometimes make me wonder what will happen in the day. Beyond the usual routine of eat, school and sleep, things get really unpredictable when you have a 2 and a 5 years old in the picture. I often have to remind myself to go with the flow and am usually pleasantly surprised by all the adventures we get into together. So here’s a page with a picture of the little girl after she had her face painted when we went for a fair. Certainly a bonus, one that she was totally thrilled about.

Fun Adventures FN, @colortypes sophie @ cliquekits, #cliquekits #pinkpaislee #dearlizzy #scrapbooking

I used patterned papers from Dear Lizzy’s Serendipity line and had loads of fun playing with types (mini alphabet from Pink Paislee, hand written fonts and letters from the patterned papers). What I thought was really fun were those transparent acrylic shapes from We R Memory Keepers. I love how they add texture to the page, without adding too much bulk. I lined up the numbers 1 – 9 at the top of the page to represent the innumerable amount of adventures we have ahead of us and truly, countless fun adventures await us everyday. Just Chase Them!!!

All items used on this page can be found in the Clique Kits store. So head on there and start shopping =) Don’t forget to use SOPHIE10 to get 10% off your purchase in the store too!

Timeless Twine: Summer Fun Hoop Board

Hello everyone!  I’m excited to share with you a hoop I altered using the gorgeous firecracker twine from Timeless Twine.

I wound twine around the outer hoop and plaited three strands of twine to form a rope for the middle of the hoop.

To add some interest, I created some blooms using a loom I had. There were sewn on to the hoop directly and to complete the entire project, I added  couple of mini clothes peg to the rope. I love how the Hello Summer Stamp set is such a prefect fit for this project.

Tadah! A spot to hang all the plans my family have made for the awesome season ahead. Thanks for joining me today. The twine and stamp set can be found in the Bella Creationz shop. Enjoy!
