Frame-a-licious Project with Brenda's Sucerie paper - Eileen Hull Sizzix Blog Hop

Another blog hop for the fabulously talented Eileen Hull and her sizzix collection of diecuts. I've used Brenda's Sucerie pad only one page which had three kind of elements: the flowery pattern, the stripes and the border. I've used a HOTP template to create the flower and use their matching orange brads. The squidgy birds and tulips are from a sheet of three dimensional stickers I got from a UK shop called Paperchase. Eileen diecut is called Frame Easel you can use a picture but I thought I would let Brenda's paper do the talking this time.

Enjoy the blog hop which starts on Wednesday on Eileen's Blog !

Notebook Pocket Wine Taster Holder - Village Color papers and Kanban topper

I can't believe it's that time again to have another blog hop with the multi-talented Eileen. This week we had the Notebook Pocket to create something with. I thought it would be fun to use it as a Wine Taster Note container. I used the lovely Brenda Pinnick paper (Village Color) which seemed to match the Kanban wine topper. I even went the extra mile this week and staged the picture with a 'real' wine bottle and glass ! LOL Yes I had a slow day ! :)

I hope you enjoy the blog hop which you can start from Eileen's blog just in case you arrived first here by other means (search engine, referral, etc...).

Check Book Cover Polka dots and Leaves (Sucerie and Initially Yours papers)

Wow another Blog Hop by Eileen for her Check Book Cover die-cut. I've used Brenda's Sucerie and Initially Yours papers. I've left the back cover loose so you can see the inside of the check book.

I inked the edges with Ranger's Distress Ink Walnut Stain. I used the Xyron personal cutter to create the letters and corners.

Believe in You Card - Digital Image by Brenda Pinnick and Sucerie paper

This week's Dare U 2 Digistamp them was a lovely sketch by Larissa and I had this idea of using semi opaque acrylic sheet and stamp on it with a similar signature stamp with white stazon ink. It kinda worked but I had to use some pearl gems to make them more noticeable as they would disappear otherwise.

Paper (background in green) is Brenda's Sucerie and the digital image she gave away on her blog a while back to be used for her new serie U Color ! I used Coloursoft (Derwent) and Sansodor to colour it.

You can see a below a close up so you can see the stamped acrylic squares that are matching the sketch design, well I tried to ! LOL

Sucerie papers combined with Eileen Hull Sizzix cupcake die

Eileen Hull has created these wonderful dies and she asked me to try the stampboard die-cuts out of them. I've used Brenda's Sucerie papers, some hotp brads and punched out little circles out of the inside paper to cover the brads and some kanban faux gems bling to finish the cupcake look off !

Wedding photos by Leonie

This is using the same sheet as Vince. The panels make perfect frames for photos. I have wrapped one of the ribbons from the TSV kit round a chipboard frame (also from the same kit) and also used one of the chipboard flowers. This page was enhanced (as were all the pages in the album) with ribbon and I used some blue self-adhesive gems on the blue 'diamonds' to give a bit of accent.

Finally, I used a fancy eyelet 'medal' from the Big Bite.

Eve as a baby by Leonie

This is the first page of the album - my mum as a baby. I used the pink colourway for my mum's page, and the pale blue/green colourway for my dad's page on the facing page. Chipboard letters from the 'Initially Yours' and a chipboard flower from the scrapbook kit from QVC (the one with the papers, large scrapbook (which I used for this album) and 3 small ones. Finished off with self-adhesive ribbons and some pink buttons.

This was not actually the final page: I added another photo on the right, but don't have a 'small' copy of the photo with that on.

Together Layout by Leonie

This is one of my favourite pages - it uses my favourite colourway of the BP paper slab, together with some fabric flowers which just happened to match and some chipboard letters. I have used one of the 'Initially Yours' chipboard frames round the photo itself as well.

Brenda Pinnick Fans Unite ! - Vince's layout our Museum day out with Brenda

Hi to everyone who's a very very very big fan of Brenda Pinnick gorgeous designs. My name is Fabrizio (you might know me as Fabyon on some forums) and I decided to create this blog for all the Brenda Pinnick fans out there (and I know there are many !!!). There will be various contributors to this blog where they will showcase their Brenda Pinnick creations.

Brenda knows about this blog and I'm sure she'll come over and comment on your creations so make her proud guys !

This first post I thought I would use Vince's recent two layouts of our day at the British Museum with Brenda when she visited London back in May. A big hello to Bridget, Helen and Leonie who were there on the day too ! It was a fantastic day and I just want to thank Brenda for patience as kinda 'mobbed' her for her attention. LOL
