Beautiful Moments

Hi there,
Just wanted to stop by with a creation I made last week while at our holiday house.  Now I think this one may be the most minimalist layout I have created.  I had limited supplies and time but I just love how it turned out.  And that background paper.....OMG!!!  It's gorgeous, I kind of didn't want to cover it all up anyway.  Now I have no idea who it's by, it's got to be either Webster's Pages or Crate Paper, I am thinking!

Some detailed shots to share..........

Thanks for stopping in :)

Prima BAP - July

Hello :)
Prima Marketing have brand new challenges for the month of July.  This month I created with the BAP.  Here is the fantastic sketch by Rikka Kovasin. 

Here is my take on the sketch.............


I tweaked it just a little bit, opting for one photo, instead of three.  Instead on the stars I created hearts (which also doubled as my watercolor challenge for day nine of 'Prima's 30 Day Watercolor Challenge'!) ;)  This layout is about my first Mother's Day with this little guy.  He totally completes me and I couldn't help but use the pinks and oranges on here......super sweet for my bubba and I!!  I also had to add in my usual flower clusters and lots of mixed media goodness.

Prima Products Used:

Prima Product: #584344 12 x 12 Collection kit - Vintage Emporium, #963706 Art Stones, #963323 Melange, #586621 Box Flowers Melange, #585327 Foil Washi Stickers, #586775 Quartzite flowers, #586812 Calacutta flowers, #583774 Wood Varity Salvage District, #577674 Winthrop Topaz, #814328 Oil Pastels, #584269 Watercolor Confections Tropicals

Thanks for visiting.....I hope you get a chance to create something with these awesome challenges this month....oh and there is a brand new card challenge aswell!!  All over at the Prima blog :)  And you will find the other lovely creations :)

My heart

Hi there!!! 

If you follow my Instagram account (staceyyoung81) or my facebook page (Stacey Young Creations and Crafts) you would of seen the background of this layout before I embellished it ;)  I started with the butterfly, it was soooo pretty and I am proud of myself for not covering it up....

I used lots of Prima Watercolour products here including the Oil Pastels, Watercolor Confections and some Bloom Sprays. 

This photo was taking of myself and my boys this Mothers Day just gone....I love it, I love them!

"My Heart"

Some closeups to share -

Just love all of the rainbow colours here.........

A few older resin pieces.....I still love to this day :)

Thanks for visiting! 
Have a great day/night!

Love You


I had some free time over the weekend to have a little play just for fun (few and far between at the moment)!! 
I have used a mixture of Prima Marketing and Crate Paper :)

 I think I like this colour combo for something different too, the yellow is so sunshiney!!

" Love You"

A few closeups shots -

Look at that sweet baby of mine (photo taken back when he was 3 months old), gosh he is growing way too fast!!!

After a really busy couple of weeks, I hope to get more creative time like this soon :)

Prima Marketing - Geo Shapes

Happy Friday :)

Just stopping in with my brand new creation for Prima Marketing featuring their gorgeous Geo Shapes!

Here is a little about my project that went on the blog recently.........

" I created a layout today featuring my bestie's new baby girl, Elsie.  I just adore these Geo Shapes, they just add instant texture to your creation, and I am huge on texture.  I took inspiration from the colours of the shapes and that's how my layout became so colourful.  I added lots of mixed-media touches to the creation to make those shapes pop even more. "


Some closeups for you of those awesome shapes........

Those paints are just the colours and the way they change colour when placed on an angle!!

I also used Color Bloom sprays in Lime Wedge, Boysenberry and Glistening Waves.

Here are just a few progress shots of my creation................

Background created first and then I added my layers of paper for my photo mat.   Then I start to adhere the embellishments.

Have a lovely weekend xxx

I used a mixture of collections here and that gorgeous clown die-cut :)

Here are just a few photos I managed to get on my camera!  I have a hundred more on my phone!!

Happy 5th Birthday Mason!  He is such an amazing little guy!!  He had a absolute ball at his birthday party :)

Have a wonderful day xxx
