All of my July projects in 1 post!! Sorry but I was on holidays!!xx

Hello my dear friends & followers!!
My blog has been terribly neglected during July but I was on holidays on a Paradise Greek island called "SAMOS"!!! No time for blogging or Facebook...however I took some scrapbooking stuff with me because I cannot imagine myself without getting my fingers dirty for too long!! haha

First of all a reminder!!!
There is still time to enter the sketch at   Purple Pumpkin by Debbie Burns

and here is my take...
I have also used the color challenge from Get Creative since I had the honor of being the Guest Designer this month!!!
The challenge is to use ONLY red embellishments!!!

*I have used a doily, a spotty button, red twine and 2 different red washi tapes

I will also share with you what I've done with my limited stuff during my holidays!!! Some "Studio75" papers, some Scrapmatts, Green Tara & Purple Pumpkin embellies were all I needed!!!

All scrapmatts pieces are from "Nautical design" CB 4059!!! Simply gorgeous!!! Studio75 "Sunshine love" collection & Purple Pumpkin flower,washi tape, tickets, buttons!!!
I have painted the sea shells using distress inks and the rest of the pieces were painted white. I have also added gold stickles for shine!!
My next project is a tag where I have used a mask with texture paste to look like wood which I think is very trendy at the moment!! The grass was misted with dylusions and the butterfly is painted white and covered with gold stickles!
CB 4009 Butterfly, CB1190 Words, CB 5099 grass.

Flowers and ribbon by Green Tara!!!


And my layouts for Green Tara!!!!!


I know it is winter in Australia but it is summer in Greece
and my layouts have a summer touch on them!!

In both layouts is my daughter Ioli. In the first one she is
wearing my huge sun glasses and looks like a little starlet!!

I have used some real sea shells and a starfish I picked from
the sea the other day!! 

Papers and wooden elements are "Studio 75"!!
Gorgeous flowers and ribbon are of course Green Tara!!

I have used a beautiful Camellia as the center piece of my cluster
 and around it you can see skeleton leaves in hot pink,
brown leaves, turquoise roses and hot pink cherry blossoms!

Ric rac ribbons are great for summer themes as they look like waves!!
 Here I have used two different colours, hot pink and brown!!
The burlap gives a natural feel to it and goes perfectly with the
natural sea elements!!

Green Tara Products Used:



Yet another cluster with the beautiful Camellia flower in blue!!!
I have also used cherry blossoms in white and red, white 
velvet leaves, my favorite mini tassel ribbon in light blue
 and a lovely red heirloom flower!!

More ric rac ribbons here! There are many fabulous colors to choose
 from in the store!! This metal piece is cut out from a ribbon too which is
 called silver diamante trim! I have also made a bow using that lovely
 thin red/white ribbon! And if you look closely, I have scattered around
some sequins (in both layouts) taken off the sequin trim!!!

Green Tara Products Used:


"Photo Album"

 I have also made a photo album which is a gift for a friend!
ALL flowers and leaves are beautiful Green Tara products!!!

If you've made it so far your are heroes!!! haha
So sorry for the long post!!!!
Thanks for having a look!
Have a great day and happy scrapping!!!xx

Τόση ομορφιά σε ένα ποστ μας είχε λείψει, νομίζω, Βίκυ μου!! Εντάξει, τι να πούμε, είναι φοβερές οι δημιουργίες σου... μια μικρή αδυναμία όμως έχω στις συνθέσεις σου για το Green Tara! Και οι δύο υπέροχες... με λεπτομέρεια, χρώμα και καλό στήσιμο!

ΥΓ. Καλά που μου θύμισες το σκετς του ΡΡ... νόμιζα ότι είχε λήξει ήδη η προθεσμία!
