Welcome to April ...

So many amazing layouts for March - it near made the Irish in me sing!!

Our colour this month might just have been influenced by our chocolate loving (and snacking) Easter past-time ... and we can't wait to see how you use this deliciousness on your pages - gosh I am hungry already !!


We hope you like our inclusion of a sketch courtesy of PageMaps to help inspire you further. You don't have to use this to put in an entry but we'd love it if you do :)

and some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ...

(in no particular order)

Lisa Johnston (Australia)
I decided to go with an outdoorsy theme with the Toffee Crunch and white colour scheme. I stuck very closely to the sketch too. It took all the thinking out of it - bonus!

Tanya Heritage (Australia)

Louise Turner (Australia)
A loose version of the sketch with a whole lot of stash busting!!!

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)


The earth color pushed me out my comfort zone. Each time I am surprised at the results and love the natural effects. Mixing with the white softened everything.

Caroline Elliam (Canada)
I'm not use to earth tones, it wasn't an easy one! The challenge was rough with the sketch also but I just LOVE how it turned out! Getting out of our comfort zone can be surprising! I used some Zig clean real brush pens to color my flowers stamps. A vintage sepia ink was use on my vellum paper with a clear embossing powder to have more texture.

I used watercolor crayons and a stencil for the background and wood veneers, colk and stickers for embellishments. I stitched around the layout to add some interest.

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
For this layout I followed the sketch, but only used one little photo instead of three. I added in more embellishments than in the sketch as I wanted to use them up - and some were new (to me) and just had to be used! I used plenty of white on this one, to keep it nice and soft for a baby theme.

Melinda France (Australia)
I love the way the neutral tones leave ‘space’ for the photos to really be the focus of the layout.
