Seaside Walk with Chic Tags November kit

I had a pleasure to play with exclusive November kit from Chic Tags this month and oh boy I liked the products! Here is my layout using some photos from the trip to the sea last year and telling the little story about resting and swithcing off for a while :)

products: CHIC TAGS November kit, Happy Place papers and rub ons;  embellishments: American Crafts thickers, washi tape; Pebbles roller stamp; white acrylic paint, watercolors, crayons, pencil

What I loved about the kit was how nicely it coordinates with the main Chic Tags lines- I could work without worrying about matching shades and tones and just enjoyed creating my page :) There are more inspiring combination on our blog so make sure to have a look there too!

Fun Times – brown and gold layout with Chic Tags new products!

Hey there!

I always get excited on Fridays, they promise weekends, staying in, resting and creating… yes, I’m a domestic animal :) Sometimes I think  I could just stay in for my life time haha :) But.. there are some days, special occassions and events when going out is in order and well, these are the fun times too!

Fun Times Kasia Tomaszewska

paper: Chic Tags ” Happy Place“, Dear Lizzy polka dot vellum  embellishments and journaling cards: Chic Tags Exclusive October Kit, November Kit, Good Tidings tags and stickers; Citrus Twist Kit wood veneer stars; stamps: Pebbles roller stamp; other: paint, gesso, brown ink, sequins

Today’s layout presents a mix of Chic Tags papers and embellishments in shade of brown and gold. After making my last monochromatic layout I really wanted to repeat this trick (and after watching tons of metallic products for upcoming fashion trends at work I couldn’t resist gold too!) so here it comes- warm and sparkly page about fun times when the night out happens! Have a look at some detail shots:

What do you think about mixing one color with metalic and than playing with texture to finish off the layout? I think it might be a fun thing to try in the upcoming holiday season! And yes- that’s a big trend coming in fashion so it makes me wonder if it’ll start in our scrapbooking world too… let’s see!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love My Madhouse!

oh yes I do!

I don’t mind Mondays after weekend like last one:) We had some good time together, some good time alone and now I feel like the good energy is steaming through my ears! Seriously I don’t remember last time when I was free to do so much- happiness starts here- in our little home (which by the way is covered with foil right now and being painted with beautiful, bright colors!)

Today’s layout is also bright, happy and energetic! For my composition base I used the new sketch from Chic Tags blog– you have 2 weeks to enter the challenge if you wish! The products feature the new Chic Tags line Happy Place which is definitely my favorite among 3 new releases!

Hey Hey weekend Kasia Tomaszewska

paper and embellishments Chic Tags “Happy Place” and a bit of “School House“… and that’s it :)

I’m so in love with all the new products which Chic Tags has to offer! The selection is great and it was amazing to finally be able to cut into new papers and tags! I used the white base and black and white photograph  to let all the happy colors pop off the page, I layered some papers and tags and added stamps- yes! There are stamps in the line too! I’m one happy girl :)

Workspace Wednesday

Hello and happy Workspace Wednesday!

My desk is covered with beautiful new products which I received last weekend from Chic Tags! Among them I’ve found the new exclusive November kit which you can still purchase in Chic Tags store! It includes some tags, journaling cards, badges and exclusive design stamps. I separated my kit into small bowls so I can always see the cute embellishments and create something new with them- this is the plan for the weekend

Today You Are 3- Chic Tags Sketch it Out

Happy Monday everyone!

Let’s start a week with something fun and colorful, shall we? :) We recently celebrated 3rd birthday of Fab’s little nephew and I couldn’t hold myself from scrapping this cute photo! It wasn’t easy to grab a little one in the middle of party chaos but it was totally worth :)

As a starting point for this page I used a sketch designed by Ashley Horton which went live yesterday on Chic Tags blog. I changed the things a little bit but the main composition is still the same. If you would like to join our refreshed Sunday Challenge here you will find all the details!

I love that Ashley’s sketch gave me an opportunity to do some layering! The mix of papers and paint is fun and cheerful and gorgeous Chic Tags Birthday Cake labels tone everything down. And don’t you just love stars sprinkled around- there are so much fun!
