PLS - Gold Foil

Hi there!
Today I have a new Pretty Little Studio project to share.
For the past 12 months I have adored using gold in my projects.  Pretty Little Studio has an amazing collection of Gold products to choose from.  I picked out the colour combination of gold, mint, black and white and chose some paper from the You and Me and Trick or Treat collections to match.  I layered my photo in the middle and then chose to accent the gold stickers around my photo.  I love the end result teamed with a little bit of mixed media.

"Birthday Dinner"

Pretty Little Studio Product list:
  • Paper – You & Me – Romantic and Sweet Ocean Mint, Trick or Treat – Midnight and Friday
  • Embellishments: Gold foil stars, Gold foil alphas, Bee Balm Gold foil butterflies, True Love Gold flags, Sweetheart Gold (hearts), Flair Heart you buttons

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday!!!
Hugs xoxo

Icecream canvas

Hi there!  Today I am stopping by with my super duper cute Icecream canvas I created using mostly Pretty Little Studio products.  Its sooooo cute this piece, the picture really doesn't do it justice!!  I used lots of PLS papers and layered them up with some calico pieces also.

Pretty Friday Shares............

Happy Friday to you all, I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned :)
Today I have a couple of creations to share with you.
The first one was another creation I created whilst on holidays.  I started off with a stencilled background.  If you follow me on Instagram (STACEYYOUNG81) or my facebook page (StaceyYoung Creations and Crafts) you may have seen the before shot of the stencil :)  I then of course had to fill it up with lots of pretties and a smidgen of black and white to match in with my photo.  I just love this pic of all of together reading books!!!

I used some more Maggie Holmes Confetti and a little Craft Market.

I also used lots of gorgeous Shimmerz products.  To name a few -
Vibez Egg Noggin
Coloringz Pretty In Pink/Well Blue Me Down/Night Moves
Inklingz Good As Gold/Sun Kissed
Spritz Mango Madness

Some pretty Prima flowers :)

My second creation today was based on inspiration from the following photo.
It was shared on the Pretty Little Studio blog last week.

The painting in this picture certainly caught my attention, it’s amazing.  I took inspiration from the colours and painted the background to match.  I also loved the Woodgrain and choose a some Silly Monkey paper to match the brown colour.  I used a flower die cut to cut some layered flowers out of the pink papers and placed the Journaling card from the You & Me Collection to accent the left hand side.

"I'll Always Be There"

PLS Product list:
Paper: Silly Monkey Collection – Silly Ruth Polka, Silly Harper Heart; You & Me Collection – Cut Out Paper Together, Cupid pink; Love Notes Collection – Rose Bed Journaling: You & Me 3×4, Owl Feather 3 x 4; Stickers: True Love Gold Flags; Flair: Cupids Arrow; Tags: You & Me Together Tabs
