“Life is Sunshine” by Gerry van Gent

Hello crafty friends!

Today I am sharing with you a layout created with 49 and Market new products – beautiful paper collections,

gorgeous flowers and new clear stamp sets. I usually scrap photos of my kids because they are my inspiration.

However I don’t really mind decorating my dimples occasionally 😉

Here is a photo story of my layout…


You can see how many layers I added to create the dimension I wanted.

The cute Flower Fairy was fussy cut from Looking Through Cut Outs.


I use almost always dies on my layouts. The reason is that I use the leftovers from the pattern papers,

add dimension to my layout and most importantly I have always the right color.

This dark blue swirl is die cut from one of the pattern papers.



Stamping, layering papers and arranging flowers – it sounds like heaven to me 🙂


I added some glittier to some of the die-cut swirls so that they can match the Shine & Shimmer fabulous flowers.

The chipboard title comes from Dusty Attic company (Australia).


The big lilac flower was made by mixing “Shimmer & Shine Lilac Jardin Secret”and

“Vintage Shades Orchid Blossoms”


I totally love the small banners from “Scents of Nature” collection.

The word “sunshine” was stamped directly on one of the banners.


Thanks a lot for visiting us today!

Happy scrapy-crafting!
