Lucky Charm Layouts & Giveaway Winners

Hello all. Sorry I've been absent for a week, we've all been a bit ill here. Nothing serious, but enough to make me feel a bit grumpy and run down. It was my daughter's birthday yesterday so any spare energy was put into preparations for that instead of blogging. She had a fabulous day and got lots of lovely presents, so she's happy!

In the meantime, some projects I made for the SJ Crafts blog were posted HERE yesterday. Sarah sent me a Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm 6x6 pad and Stamp Set to play with, and I have enjoyed using them so much! Here's the two layouts I made:

Love on Paper:


The feathers are cut from the 6x6 pad using my Cricut Mini and the 'Southwest' Cartridge, I thought they looked like writing quills so they worked well on a page about me and my husband signing the marriage register, and it gave some of my favourite papers from the pad a great place to shine!

I enhanced the romantic theme with gold heat embossed hearts on the background, and some envelopes and a jar fussy cut from other papers in the pad. The 'come fly away with me' sentiment on the hot air balloon stamp is just so dreamy, I had to use it on here too!

Disney Family:


I wanted a more bold and straight look for this layout, to contrast with all the details on our costumes in the photo. I love that this pad has gorgeous graphic papers as well as romantic ones - just look at these stripes, anchors, triangles and chevrons - it's so trendy!

I stamped and heat embossed the chevron stamp several times on the left to point at the photo, and I added this 'you make my heart sing' cut-out from the pad, as my family make me so happy! The heart gems on here are by Papermania, and there's some enamel dots (My Mind's Eye My Girl), and some clear gemstones (Hero Arts) - which I've used as raindrops from the cloud. I've used this technique before (here), but I thought it was okay to do it again as I loved it and the layouts will go in different albums!

If you want to see some close-up details of the layouts, then go HERE to the SJ Crafts blog to take a peek! I made a couple of cards with the collection too which will appear over there soon!

Giveaway Winners: 

Before I go, I have a couple of Giveaway Winners to announce... these are both re-draws because the original winners never contacted me.

The first is a new winner from the PaperHaus Spring Fling Blog Hop Giveaway...

Hope you are all feeling better now - there has been so much around this winter. Happy birthday to your big girl!

The feathers are certainly an eye catcher - but I love the photos too. Hope you are feeling much better, it's tough feeling under par especially when you have little ones and things that need doing. Glad your daughter enjoyed her birthday :)

Stopping by to say Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my Paper Bakery and Glitz projects, I really appreciate it! Best of luck to you as well on the Glitz/Gossamer contest...from what I see here, your entry is sure to be wonderful! I really love both of these layouts, especially the gold-embossed stamps, you showed that mini set off so well. I also love the little envelopes and jars you cut out of the DL paper, and the little dots, sparkles, hearts you've scattered on both layouts!
