Jot Magazine Mood Board Challenge No 38

Jot Magazine has just released it's June mood board challenge put together by me.

I hope you love it as much as I do. I wanted it to feel a little wintery now that June has arrived and here in Australia the wintery months are ahead.

Remember to upload your project that the mood board inspired you to create to the Jot Blog for your chance to win a prize.

Here is the layout I created inspired by the mood board.

Hello - Inspiration Overload with Teresa Collins

When you are a creative person you need to surround yourself with creative people to make sure you stay creatively alive.

So when I heard the amazing Teresa Collins was coming to Australia to teach I was excited.
I attended two of her fabulous classes and snapped this memorable photo.

Teresa is lovely and not only is she passionate about documenting life she is passionate about inspiring people to be all they can be.

I came away feeling recharged and nurtured.

In this layout I have used all Teresa's beautiful products except a couple of little things.

I love her brand new stamps and range of pigment inks.
They are wood mounted and leave a sharp clear impression.

Teresa's new cut files are also fabulous. In this layout I have used the heart cut file over a lace doily. They look fabulous when layering to give that extra dimension to your project.

Scrapbooking - My Wedding Day

When I first saw this fabulous flipbook by Teresa Collins I knew it would be perfect as a little brag book. 
I have been married now for a few years and having this keepsake with me to reminds me of our special day.

This style of mini book adds a uniqueness to your project as it is interactive.
Anyone I have shared it with has enjoyed looking through the book several times.
It is small and strong allowing you to throw it in your handbag and not worry it will be damaged.


 Teresa Collins has designed all you need to make this project.
Right down to the perfectly pink tools, punches and acetate photo overlays.

Teresa has just returned from CHA where she was introducing all her new products!

My favourite which I must get my hands on are all her new punches and the GOLD trimmer (swoon)
Check out these new products here in her recent blog post.

This little project that I look at everyday only took me about an hour to put together.
My tip here is not to over think it.
Add your layers, photos and accents quickly and watch it come together.

The laptop got opened and here I am. 
After having my fill of beautiful blogs I found the inspiration to blog again..
