My Last Farewell Green Tara Post......

Hello there friends, thanks for calling by.
Today is a my last post on the Green Tara Design Team.
I have been on this wonderful design team as well as being
the DT Co Ordinator for Green Tara for the past three years &
 I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone,
 but the time has come for me to step down.

 After three years with this amazing team, I feel the need to
broaden my horizons & perhaps step out of my comfort zone.

Thanks to Alison & Mark for having me, it has been a 
wonderful journey we have all shared.

So today I want to leave you with my twelve  favourite
Green Tara  layouts (in no particular order)  I have created
 here on the Green Tara blog using lots of beautiful
Green Tara goodies. Some of these are old, some are new, 
but for one reason or another these are my favourite
Green Tara layouts.
Thanks for taking the time to look at these,
& thanks for sharing my Green Tara journey.

My Green Tara March DT Reveal
Part Two

Hi there friends. Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part two of my March DT reveal for Green Tara.

This adorable pic is of my new baby Grandaughter, Mia.
She is just eight weeks old. 

I wanted this layout  to be a super soft pastel pink
& Green Tara had just the right products to help me achieve the look I wanted.

I started off with some pink polka dot Green Tara "Washi Tape".
Green Tara have a huge range of washi tapes.

In my cluster I have used both large & small  "Heirloom" flowers in pink & white.
These have  pearl stamens in the middle.
This gorgeous bow is another fabulous Green Tara one.
 It really does make the nicest bows, don't you agree ?

I have added my favourite green "Velvet Leaves" again.
It is rare I do any project without including a few of these.
They just seem to work with most colours.

I have finished off this small cluster at the bottom of the layout with one of
the Green Tara  pink "Flower Sprays" and a piece of another Green Tara white "Lace".
They have a great range of beautiful laces to choose from.

All of the chipboard on my layout is from 2 Crafty Chipboard.
I hope you like this layout, as it is one that is really close to my heart.

Until next time.

My 2 Crafty Chipboard March DT Reveal
Part Three
"Daughters Are So Special"

Hi there friends, thanks for calling by. Today I have part three of my
 DT reveal for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
This layout was  inspired by some of the background techniques from
the Pop & Colours  tutorials I watched recently. It's always great to try 
your hand at something different & I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have used a 2Crafty chippie title, "Daughters are So Special".
This is one of many  from the vast range they have available.

Next up I have used some of their  new "Sharons Butterflies".
Again these come in a multi pack containing different sizes.

 I have also used one of their  "Flower Spurt Chains" which I cut into three pieces
 so that I could tuck a piece in at both the top, as well as the side.

Lastly I finished off with a "2014" date from another of their great multi packs.
These are the perfect embellishment for any layout.
Well thats all for today, thanks for calling by.
Until next time.

My 2 Crafty Chipboard March DT Reveal
Part Two
"A Moment Captured"

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by today.
This is  my second layout for my March DT reveal for   2 Crafty Chipboard.

 I have based my layout  on two current challenges.
  This moodboard by Sassy Scrappers
& this sketch by Skissedella 


I have used  another great 2 Crafty NEW chippie title, 
 "A Moment Captured".
 I thought this pretty much summed up these pics.

Here I have also used one of their "Tiny Henri's Frames" for my little quote.
These are just a perfect size to tuck in here & there.

Here you can see yet another one of their fabulous  chippie pieces. This is actually a
"Corner Jacqui's Flourish". Just because it is a corner doesn't mean
you cannot use it in a different way. I thought it made a great flourish
for underneath my flower cluster.

I have also scatted a few of my favourite 2 Crafty  mini stars from their
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Multi Pack".

  The last chippie piece I used here was one of their 
 "Mini Fob Watches".
2 Crafty chipboard have over two thousand different
designs, we really are spoilt for choice.
  I'll be back in a day or two with part three of my
March reveal for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
Thanks for stopping by.

My 2 Crafty March DT Reveal
Part One
"Always Wear Your Invisible Crown"

Hello friends. Thanks for calling by. Today I have part one of my
March reveal for 2 Crafty chipboard. 
This  layout I was inspired to create using some of
the techniques from a tutorial I watched over at 
Pop & Colours.  I have used some of their
techniques & did my own thing with it, staying
true to my own style
I have used one of the new titles from 2 Crafty,
"Always Wear Your Invisible Crown" .
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack".
These are my favourite go to product at the moment.
They come in a multi pack & are just brilliant to pop on
anything. I have had four layouts from one pack & I still
have some left.
In this pic you can see underneath my title I have used yet another new
2 Crafty chippie piece, the "Squiggly Heart Cluster" 
which I heat embossed in white.

Next up I have used a couple of  their "Indian Feathers"
Just the perfect accessory to any cluster.

In this pic you can see a "Heart Silhouette" tucked in at the side of
my top cluster. I also heat embossed it  in white & then a little Stickles 
applied for a little bit of glitz & glam.
Here you can see another of their "Heart Silhouette" pieces.
If you want to know any of the treatments I have used on any
of the chippie pieces I have used here, they are all listed over
on the 2 Crafty blog.

I'll be back in a day or two with  part two of my reveal.
Hope you will call back then.

My March Green Tara DT Reveal
Part One
"Lucky to be so Loved"

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part one of my March Green Tara reveal to share 
with you, & naturally I have used lots of beautiful Green Tara
 flowers, lace & trims to decorate it with.

I have based this on the current challenge over at
and Wooo Hooo, I was a WINNER.

**Green (as a dominant color, doesn't have to be the only color!), 
**The word Lucky or Luck, 
**A bit of Irish lace (any bit of lace or doilies!)

This  layout features a friend of mines Grandaughter, Ashley, such a beautiful girl.

Now to frame my photo, I made this circular wreath by simply
curling four pieces of white Green Tara  "Flower Sprays" together in a circular fashion.
It literally took me about three minutes to make. It was soooo simple.
 I can't believe I haven't thought of it before. These flower sprays come in
lots of colours too. I will definitely be making more of these in the future.

I have also used some strips of  their olive green "Bud N Bow" trim as
well as some of their  natural "Burlap Trim" which I frayed a little before
tucking it in underneath the photo.

I have added some of their white "Roses", "Cherry Blossoms"
some of my favourite green "Velvet Leaves".

To finish off with  I have also added some strips of one of 
the many  "Laces" that Green Tara has. 
I dyed this lace with some cold tea to make it this colour to match my layout.

I'll be back in a few days with part two.
Until then.
