{Colour Blast} A Few Of My Favourite Things

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog today!ย 

I am certain by now that most of you (probably all of you!) are aware that I am stepping down from the Colour Blast Design Team. First up a very big thank you to Tenisha for taking me on board 2 1/2 years ago and giving this relative newbie a shot!! I have loved my time on the team and loved stretching myself every time I pick up a Colour Blast product! To all of my current and past DT members, thank you to each and every one of you also, I’ve learnt, I’ve laughed, I’ve shared and made some real friendships that I otherwise may not have.

So, that’s that part of the post done. I am here today sharing some of my favourite Colour Blast creations from my time on the team.

These projects are in no particular order but I hope you enjoy this little wander down memory lane with me. I will link to process videos and old blog posts for you throughout the post ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, I couldn’t narrow it down any further!! I hope you have enjoyed seeing all of my personal faves over my last 2 1/2 years on this team!

Though this is farewell it is not goodbye! I am still a part of the Colour Blast Kit Club DT and am loving being able to create and inspire you all through that avenue and of course, I will still be in the FB group sharing my creations using Colour Blast goodies!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you around the net!!

{ScrappingClearly} Farewell & Thank You

Well, I would be lying if I didn’t say that this post was a little hard to write however, the time has come for me to step away from ScrappingClearly.ย 

Before I go any further I firstly want to thank Kylie for the incredible opportunity she gave me when she offered me a spot on this Design Team back in February of 2016. You can see my intro post over on this link!

Over the course of my time here I have not only had so much fun but I have learnt a lot, been inspired by some incredibly talented designers on the team and oh boy, has my heart been filled with such joy seeing all of your kind comments and more importantly, learning I have inspired something in you to create!!

I am not sharing anything new with you today but sharing some of my faves from my time on this amazing team. I will link to each post so if you’d like to go back and read/see more you can and I will also link to any process video’s that I have shared so grab a cuppa and come on a bit of a ride back in time with me! Oh, and these are not in any particular order ๐Ÿ˜‰


First up, this is not only one of my fave layouts for this team it is one of my all time, absolute favourites layout ofย  EVER. My boys in their most “them” pose, a simple page with a love note of sorts tucked in behind the photo for them as they grow up. Blog post for this is here.


This PL page I designed with my very first DT kit from Kylie and I still love this range. This is our closing page in our 2015 PL album. Blog post is here.


I’m not sure what it is I love about this page but I do love it! I think because it is so soft and feminine and for me, I know that stretches my creativity. Blog post is here.


This one was around the time I stopped despising fussy cutting quiet as much as I use to! Those florals are just gorgeous and as soon as I saw them I heard them beg me to cut them out!! Blog post is here. Process video is here.


This chalkboard heart Heidi Swapp marquee piece. It still hangs on my door to my craft room.ย 
You can see the blog post for this one here.


A page about me. This was created in 2016 and the photo was on my 36th birthday in July.ย 
Blog post can be seen here. And YT process video can be seen here.


This one was for a challenge as and I really love the simplicity and colour scheme! Blog post can be seen here and process video is here.


This page was done as I was really finding my feet with mixed media. I created this page for a fun CC that we did at ScrappingClearly and it was my challenge piece – from memory – a colour challenge and I just love this page! No blog post for this one! But there is a process video here.


An art journal page! My confidence has certainly grown in mixed media and honestly, I feel most confident when I am making a mess ๐Ÿ˜‰ This was also done for a CC. One of the challenges was a top 10 challenge and I chose my top 10 movies and really love how this turned out! Blog post is here. And process video is here.


Another scrapbook page and this one was done this year – in fact I made it for the February challenge and I just really love the way it came out! Blog post is here and process video is here.


And last, but not least, my minc mini album. Something WAY out of my comfort zone. Something so not “my thing” but I really love how it turned out. In fact, I love it so much that perhaps (maybe!!) I may create a few more as times goes on!! These photo’s of my youngest, though I have them printed at 6×6 and in his album, I have not really done anything with so I love that they now have this special little album. Blog post can be seen here and there is also a process video here.

That is it for me!

Once again, a massive thank you to not only Kylie but to all of the other girls, both past and present, on the DT, you have made my journey so much fun and the support we have all shared has been incredible!ย 

Also, a big thank you to all of my supporters, your kind words mean so much and I really am grateful. Though this is goodbye to the team I will still be around in the Share & Inspire group and maybe I will even play along with some future challenges!
