Blog posts of '2018' 'September'


A fun traveler’s notebook layout about my sweet Sophia’s fascination with water! She absolutely loved this hurricane experiment that her big sister made for her! These gorgeous florals from Cheeky Studio are the perfect watercolored accent!  Check out my video here:

Fabulous Friends

My latest Cheeky Studio process video is up. I used one of the exclusive papers from the September Kit combined with some of the packaging to create today’s layout. It features two photos in an arrangement that I rarely do.  Click here to watch: Fabulous Friends

Scrapbooking is a way for us to capture memories of our loved ones through the years.  We believe Natalie from our Cheeky Chicks made a great example of this on her layout about her mother. 

Check it out! 



Hello, Cheekies! Here's my design team make for today. I used Midnight Florals to decorate this page. The two photos are of my mum holding my two children when they were babies - same person, same place, same pose, different babies three and a half years apart! There's a process video on YT too. xxx

Uniquely You

Hi friends hope everyone is happy & scrapping! 

I love the papers in the July kit using the Sweet Succulents Ephemera.  It is gorgeous!  I've used one of the papers as my base and after  I used gesso, I splashed with lime green paint. Then, I roughly stenciled some black script writing and thats it!  I've cut and layered some squares from most of kits papers to create a random layer effect to compliment this amazing ephemera.  I also used the Cut Apart Labels that came in the kit to add a special touch. Sequins finished it off and I'm all done. #getcheeky #cheekystudio  Use code JULIE10 to get a 10% discount on orders in the shop at

The Easter 2018 ephemera pack really lent itself to the soft cascade that Natalie wanted to create on this 12x12 layout. The blues worked perfectly with the patterned paper she chose. Use her code natalie10 for 10% off your orders.

Cards! Cards! And Cards!

I thought I would make something different whilst waiting for new supplies so heres 3 greetings cards using the last of some of the collections. 

Card 1 is a unisex birthday card I've used scraps for inside the card and the Wishes Collection to decorate the inside and outside. Stamp for happy birthday with ink and finally I have surrounded the outside of the heart cutout with pale pink pearls.

Card 2, for this fun trifold card I have used the Wild Flowers Collection.  The cut out was on my Silhouette and the flowers were decorated with tiny bling flowers. Inside is again covered with scraps along with more ephemera  and a few butterflies from the Panda-monium ephemera too.

Card 3, Finally this adult friends card I used oxblood colored card and then a silver die cut wreath to outline the circle. The fabulous Wishes ephemera comes into play again being the perfect choice along with some star bling and a stamp friends for life.
