Laurie's April Design Team Kit Unboxing
Hello!  It is Laurie again!
Get ready for another month of cheeky! My April Cheeky Chicks design team kit came at the perfect time, seasonally speaking. It included the new Easter 2018 collection, which is going to be great for scrapbooking those bunny breakfast pictures! 
I really like this collection because it's got a nice mix of florals, ribbons, banners, and cute bunnies in baskets and hot air balloons. Plus, the color scheme isn't in your typical Easter colors, which is very refreshing. Part of the collection includes a sequins mix, and I also received some big white bows that will be a perfect addition to the Easter ephemera and sequins.
Next up, I got the new Furry Friends collection, which was also perfect timing because my daughter just had a dog-themed birthday party and this collection is all dogs! This consists of three pieces: an accessory pack of small square cards that would be perfect for creating background images or using for project life or Traveler's Notebooks, an ephemera pack that comes with A LOT of super cute pieces, and a sequins mix. 
I love, love, love that this collection has little corgi dogs in it. They are adorable, and Tuesdae captured their cuteness so well.
To go along with the collection, I also received a pack of big pink bows.
And then I also got the Get Cheeky acrylic word that is going to be great for using as a title on one of my layouts!
Stay tuned to see what I create with this awesome kit! And don't forget to head over to the store so you can get your hands on these cool scrappin' goodies, too!
Have a cheeky day,


My Cheeky Toddler
Hi everyone, it's Laurie again, and  I'm excited to share with you my latest scrapbook layout because it's all about pandas! Yep, this layout uses the new Panda-monium ephemera pack, and it was perfect for this picture of my daughter with her big stuffed panda. 
The ephemera pack includes a nice variety of super cute pandas in different sizes, so I pulled one of each panda to circle around the picture of my daughter. And then I pulled that funny panda showing us his bum to stand off on his own in the upper corner of my page. So funny! I used one of the Panda-monium flair next to that guy. 
Back to the circle cluster of pandas. I created a bunch of dimension and texture by adding the pink and blue butterflies from the ephemera pack and popping some of them up with craft foam. I also added the Panda-monium sequin mix and the black and polka dot bows from the Monthly Words kit. Those bows were really perfect for these pandas! 
This picture was taken when my daughter was 20 months, so it was getting harder and harder to get her to sit still for a picture. I had the "Cheeky" acrylic word in my design team kit, and I thought it made the perfect title for this layout because it was definitely my daughter's personality in this picture. I have no idea what face she was making, but she is getting cheeky as we are entering the toddler phase. 
I also did some Shimmerz spray on my white cardstock with the Shimmerz Vibez Don't Rain On My Parade and Shimmerz Coloringz Pink Stilettos. Both are available in the Cheeky Studio store.       
So that's my page! Thanks for looking and have a cheeky day!
My Panda BAB

Hey!  It is Tuesdae again!  I made this layout for Miexed Media Friday to share with you the process that I enjoy tremendously.  Stincile with heaby gesso and lots of shimmery in products.  For this I grabbed some old stash with my Viva Inka Golds, but appaartnetly even they neede da little TLC so one  of them didn't work.  I grabbed a spray from my stash and was able to matc the colors perfectly.

I have been wanting to paly with my deco foil for some times and so I did add a bit a of foil to the letters in the title.  I mean really, who can go wrong with Shimmer and Shine?

I finished off the embellishing with some of the new PAnda-monium ephemera, swquins and flair at the Cheeky Studio Shop and at all came together quite easliy.  I did scraplift myself on this laoyt, so maybe that is cheating but hey it turned out fine and I am more than happy with it so I hope you are too.

I hope it inspires you to make a layout that you scraplife yourself or make a layout based on a special occastion that the embellismnets or colors don't actually go with that Special Occastion. Scrapbooking is meant to fill your heart with art and taht is what I have done here! 

I hope you enjoy!



Sketch Inspiration
Happy Hump Day, Cheeky friends!
It's Laurie, and I am so excited to share with you my first layout this month using my March design team kit. 
For this layout I used the Pink & Cream Bouquets collection that includes ephemerasequins, and flair. It's all on here! 
This is based on the March sketch challenge that Heather created. You can play along all month long in the Cheeky Studio Facebook group! Post your layout in the group's pinned thread and share it on social media using #getcheeky and #cheekystudio for your chance to win! 
The paper I chose for my background had pre-printed flowers in the corners, so it kind of fit right in with the sketch. I just added some extra flowers to give the pre-printed ones some dimension, and then I added even more flowers with the flowers and feathers in the Pink & Cream Bouquets ephemera pack. Then I added one of the Pink & Cream Bouquets flair buttons into the dimensional floral bouquet. 
I used some of the Pink & Cream Bouquets sequins to add some shimmer and shine in each corner of the page. And I did a little bit of misting spray behind my photo.
I like how this one came out with the different types and layers of flowers, and I like how the Pink & Cream Bouquets went so well with the maroon and cream colors of the papers and other embellishments that I had in my stash. It's a really sweet collection that, as you can see, I've used for a wedding layout, but you could also it use for Easter cards or summer layouts. I get a very summery vibe from the bouquets in the wooden crates. Love those! I'm eager to see what the other design team members do with the collection!
Have a cheeky day!
