I am celebrating by using the 'Timeless Tropical Bundle' šŸ, 
with a little bit of Pineapple fun.

I have die cut the pineapple, using the 'Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and colouring the paper with an 'Aqua Painter' and Ink pads.
Top: Colour with 'Old Olive' and add some 'Mossy Meadow'.
Bottom: Colour with 'Crushed Curry', and add 'Old Olive' & 'Soft Suede'.

Background:
*Splatter the 'Mango Melody' cardstock mat using an 
'Aqua Painter' and 'Mango Melody' ink.
*Stamp the sentiment.
* Emboss using the 'Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

The flowers & leaves are a sweet finish to my Tropical creation.

I have used a FREE *Sale-a-Bration stamp set, 'Happy Birthday to You', and have coloured the image using ink pads and a Blender Pen.

I have outlined the flowers with a 'Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker'.

Also NEW, I am loving the 'Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic Edge Ribbon!

Oh, and another little treat.
A mini notecard, featuring a punched Birthday cake from the 'Piece of Cake Bundle' and the gorgeous NEW 'Best Dressed 3" x 3" Notecards & Envelopes'.

'Resolution Solution' - Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop

Hi there, and Happy New Year!
The Creation Station Design Team are kicking off the New Year, and we have created using Organisation as our starting point.


You may have hopped to me from Sara?, or have started with me right here.
Enjoy my take on our theme, and then hop along and visit the Design Teams Blogs for some amazing creations.

I have decorated notebooks - ready to use as a diary or journal.

I have a handful of these little notebooks, and I have prettied them up using the 
'Timeless Tropical Bundle'.

I started out die cutting the flowers and leaves, using the 'Brights Cardstock' pack.
Adhering the die cut flowers and leaves around the sentiment.

The notebook and sentiment prior to adhering.

I love this little decoration!
You can add your own sentiment, and different coloured flowers to make it your very own.

'Rest & Relax'
A perfect little Travel Journal using the palm trees and the 
'Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder'.

I coloured the Frangipani with 'Watercolor Pencils' & a 'Blender Pen'.
Stamping the sentiment directly onto the notebook with 'Early Espresso' ink.

Next up is Dena and her always amazing creations.

 
Thankyou for being here, and I hope to have inspired you with my notebooks/journals.
Until next time. D x
