I am so very excited, I have made it on to the COAPA Design Team. What is COAPA you ask? Well it is a cutfile shop. Virgina designs electronic cutfiles which you purchase to use with an electronic paper cutter. I use the cutfiles with my Silhouette Cameo to create super cute cutouts to scrap with.
Anywhoo there are two batches of cutfiles released every month, so something for everyone.
For the first release in November the theme is Autumn and there are 10 wonderful cutfiles. I have picked a few to work with.... but you will have to wait to see what I have created, as I have picked two Older designs to show case for my first design team reveal. I really wanted to use Flower Pot and Kathrine's Springs to create this layout.
I have created a process video showing how I created this layout, so pop on over to my Youtube channel to check it out.
Here are all the Design Teams Videos if you want to check everyone out.

Mermaids and shimmer, what more could a girl ask for? Lately I have been having a play with layouts just for me and for fun, not commitments in mind when creating and no dealines. It is refreshing, but I do love the challenge of working with different products and meeting a deadline.
I started with this beautiful cutfile mermaid from COAPA. Isn't she beautiful, the perfect match for Bronte's and Paige's mermaid photo.
Sometime I want to scrap a photo and I don't have any paper that works with it, so I pull out my mixed media and create my own background.
For this one I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut a cutfile snowflake to use as mask which I teamed with some Colour Blast Shimmer Spray and sprayed over the snowflake to create a reverse image outline. I then flipped the snowflake over and to used it as a stamp. You can see the two ways I have used it on the photo below.
Sometimes I just have to get on and share a few layout that I have created recently.
This one I created for Challenge One last month on the Counterfeit Kit Blog - It was a Tic-Tac-Tow challenge.
I just love the patterned paper with the tiny hearts on it in the Best of Both Worlds September Kit, but didn't have anything like it in my stash, so I decided to forge it. Here is how my forgery turned out. Not exactly like the paper, but close enough that I love it too.
First I drew a grid on my paper, I am not very good at keeping things in line so by drawing the grid give me guidance and keeps things in line.
I used six different coloured inks that were similar to the colours in the original paper in the kit and a small heart stamp and randomly applied the hearts over the paper.
Here you can see how I am randomly applying them on the paper.
Here are the colours I used, after I had finished stamping them I let them dry and then erased the pencil lines.
Here is the finished paper and how it turned out.
Another forgery I did for my kit is to forge the rainbow stencil buy using my Silhouette Cameo. For the step by steps for this pop on to the Counterfeit Kit Blog Challenge post.
I drew my inspiration from the colours, the patterns and the themes that I could see throughout the kit. Bright bold colours, rainbows, hearts, colourful strips and a mix-max of cute animals, ephemora, stickers and more.
Bold Alphas, Label stickers, Cut-a-part sheets, bright colours, enamel dots and a "stay at home" theme.
In the original kit there is a Ranger Ink Distressed Oxide in Speckled Egg but I actually don't own any Disctressed Inks so I added Envy Colour Shimmer Spray by Bee Arty Colour Blast.
Stickers and chipboard a plenty in my kit; flowers, butterflies, rainbows, plants, cute animals and fun shapes.
My papers are very eclectic lots of shapes, colours, themes and fun things to work with this month.
Greetings and Salutations Everyone.
