You make my heart sing – Chloe Nielsen

by admin ~ December 18th, 2014

Hello everyone!  It’s Chloe here sharing my first project for the month.  I can’t believe it’s December already!  This year has flown by so fast!

 

Here’s my page:

 

IMG_6479aI thought I would try a monochromatic style page.   Surprisingly, the whole thing came together quite quickly!  I guess I didn’t have to spend time matching embellishments and such like … I just knew I needed silver or grey or white :D

IMG_6480a

I’ve used the gorgeous FWAB Kate’s Corner Flourish Silver flourish - cut up to fit on opposite ends of my cluster …

You’ll also spy a grey flower from the FWAB Elise Flourish Black – Dark Green & Silver Grey flowers set too!

IMG_6481a

That’s all from me today, but I’ll be back soon to share some FWABulous Christmas cards!

Last but certainly not least, we say  farewell to our lovely DT member Tracey Fowler.

Tracey has been with us here at Flourish with a Bling for the past 18 months and haven’t we been spoilt with eye candy month after month after month.

Woohooo Tracey, what fabulous news! Scrapbooking Memories are so lucky to have you and we look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations in print! I may just have to extend my subscription!

Anyway, narrowing down Tracey’s creations for us here at FWAB has been a very difficult job, so here goes -

In this first layout of Tracey Then and Now, Tracey has used the FWAB baby blue Chloe pearl flourish and has cut them up to suit her design -

With this fabulous clipboard of Tracey’s 2 boys, Tracey has used a FWAB black Jasmine puffy flourish as well as a FWAB black Jack vine and used them as a base for her gorgeous flower clusters.

***Farewell to DT member Judith Armstrong***

by admin ~ December 9th, 2014

Today we will be sending a fond farewell to the lovely Judith Armstrong who has shared and inspired you with her creations over the past 18 months as part of the Flourish with a Bling Design Team -

Judith

Once again it’s always so hard to narrow down someones amazing contribution to FWAB and choose just 4 or 5 layouts to showcase, but here goes -

In this bright and cheery beach layout, Judith has combined the FWAB Nicky’s beach huts with FWAB Maddison and Elise flowers in co ordinating colours….and does’nt it look fabulous! Together with the FWAB clouds and sun from the FWAB Up in the sky pack, this layout was a feast for the eyes with lots of yummy FWAB!

IMG_8604

This next fun and earthy layout, Judith has used a fence and grass from the FWAB Trent’s fence set as well as a co ordinating FWAB Maddison flower in chocolate.

IMG_5287

In this next layout of fun with Micky and Minnie, Judith has used the FWAB black Elise Flourish and flower set with a Maddison flower in black -

10441249_10202886499578214_3711624902767376324_n

A gorgeous layout of mother and daughter, Judith has used the FWAB Grace pearl flourish in teal together with a FWAB Elise flower that Judith misted to match her colour scheme. Judith has also used FWAB teal pearls from the 100 packs -

IMG_1513

Who can resist the gorgeous FWAB Taylahs toadstools for layouts of toadstools, mushrooms or fairies. Don’t they look just great on Judith’s Fairytale Fungi layout below -

IMG_9214

Finally we have a bright and  colourful layout using the FWAB Jasmine puffy flourishes in orange and hot pink. Judith has cut them up to suit her layout and don’t they look effective :-)

Judith Armstrong

A very big thank you once again Judith for all the bright and cheerful work you have created for us during your DT term, for all the ooohs and ahhhs over in the FWAB gallery, blog posts and tutorials and for your wonderful talents using Flourish with a Bling….we will miss having you on the team.

***Design Team Farewell to Linda Thompson, Judith Armstrong and Tracey Fowler***

by admin ~ December 4th, 2014

It’s that time of year again in the DT calendar when we must farewell our current design team and announce a new DT call…however we have asked our current Aussie DT girls once again if they would like to stay on with us here at FWAB for another 2 months because we LOVE them so much and yeahhhhhh most of them said YES! Woohoo

Sadly we must farewell Linda Thompson, Judith Armstrong and Tracey Fowler, even though we would dearly love to keep everyone on!

So as a fond farewell and reminder to you all of these fabulously talented ladies, over the coming week I thought I would post some of our favourite creations from each of them – mind you it’s always a very hard job to narrow them down!

First up I would like to showcase some of Linda’s work -

Linda

Lindas

 Here Linda has created a gift box and used the FWAB lilac Jasmine puffy flourish and the FWAB green Jack vine. Cut up and arranged in a 3D cluster of flowers and ribbon, doesn’t it look so very pretty!

Lindas 2

 

In this next beach layout Linda has used a red beach house from the FWAB Nicky’s beach huts set as well as one of the fences that Linda has cut up from the FWAB Trent’s fence set as well as a toadstool from the FWAB Taylah’s toadstools set. Don’t you just love the colour scheme of red and blues together for a beach page….and look at that gorgeous photo! :-)

Lindas 3

 

Next up Linda has created a stunning layout using shades of B&W with a touch of yellow/orange which makes our FWAB orange Jasmine puffy flourish  stand out beautifully. Once again Linda has cut up the Jasmine flourish to create 3 separate pieces to fit in with her design.

Lindas 4

 

In this final pretty  and oh so girly  layout, Linda has used a part of the fence from the FWAB Trent’s fence, a FWAB green Jack vine, a FWAB pale pink Jasmine laser flourish and our new FWAB Maddison and Elise flowers.

Lindas 5

A very big thank you once again Linda for all your hard work over the last 18 months, the blog posts, challenges you have hosted, gallery uploads and all the inspiration you have provided for so many during your DT term for us here at Flourish with a Bling.  We have really enjoyed having you on the team :-)

Good morning FWAB fans, Judith here again with a colourful layout to share with you. I love the new colourful FWAB flowers so have included plenty of these in my layout.

by admin ~ November 18th, 2014

Hello FWAB fans!  Hope you are loving all the inspiration here on our FWAB blog!

Today, I’m sharing a layout with you:

IMG_5954b

Pie charts seem to be a bit on-trend at the moment … so I decided to make my own! I traced around a kids plate for the circle and ruled lines for the sections. I then “painted” with my mists on wet cardstock to get the watercolour effect.

IMG_5955a

FWAB products used:

FWAB Maddison Flowers 3pk – Orange
FWAB Maddison Flowers – SMALL 4pk – Teal
FWAB Elise Flowers 4pk – Gold
FWAB Elise Flowers 4pk – Green

and

FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Teal

IMG_5923a

The FWAB Elise Flourish Silver was just the PERFECT addition – it added the right amount of bling and flourish :)

IMG_5922a

Secondly, I have a quick card to share:

IMG_5918a

The new size in the FWAB Maddison flowers are just PERFECT for cards!!

IMG_5919a

I have used FWAB Maddison Flowers – SMALL 4pk – Yellow and FWAB Elise Flowers 4pk – Green as well as some FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 pack in Rose Pink and Olive Green

Morning today I would like to share with you the amazing new flowers from FWAB they are just amazing the colours are so awesome and they just finish a layout off beautifully. In my lay out you will see the flowers with their awesome bling or pearl centers standout beautifully.

I have been a lover of the bloom girl style  of layouts for some time and when my package arrived I just knew I had to use some of them to create a bloom girl layout. There are so many colours to choose from.

As you can see the centers and colours are just amazing

Napkin Rings Tutorial – with Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ October 23rd, 2014

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share with you how to make some simple yet elegant Napkin Rings using Flourish With A Bling Goodies.

Tutorial-1

 

Firstly you need the following supplies:

Patterned paper (I used 30 x 30 sheets), Card Stock (I used white),Paper Doilies, Glue, Double Sided Tape, FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish , FWAB Adhesive Pearls and FWAB Flowers.

Now to start creating:

Take your paper doily and cut the strips as shown in the below picture (you could also use a border punch and white cardstock)

 

Tutorial-2

 Take your cardstock and cut a strip 6cm wide and the patterned paper at 5cm wide.

Tutorial-3

Take your 4 strips and cut them into lengths of 17cm.

Tutorial-4

Glue the doily strips onto the white card stock .

Tutorial-5

Using double sided tape, adhere your patterned paper over the top of the doilies and cardstock

Tutorial-6

Take your FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish, remove it from the backing sheet and place a small amount of glue on some the back of the pearls. Although the flourishes  are self adhesive, as the flourish is going to bent and not sitting flat this just adds extra strength to the flourish.

Tutorial-7

Place the flourish in the centre of the pattered paper.

Tutorial-8

Place a line of glue along the bottom strip and bring the other end up and hold together to form a ring.

Tutorial-9

Tutorial-10

Take your FWAB Flowers and using some glue adhere your flower over the join and set aside to dry.

Tutorial-12

Another alternative is to use the FWAB Adhesive Pearls and decorate the paper of your choice as I have done below.

Tutorial-13

Once the napkin rings are dried they are ready to use.

Tutorial-14

Tutorial-15

 Thank you for letting me share my tutorial with you.

I have now got to decide which one I want to use for Christmas Day and get making some more!

Happy Scrapping

Tracey

Dress Up Fun with Amy Prior

by admin ~ October 21st, 2014

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today with a fun layout to share using lots of Flourish with a Bling products. Here I have used the FWAB new Elise & Maddison flowers in Black, Hot Pink & Orange, FWAB Nicky’s Beach Huts (flag banner), Jessie Flourish in Black, Chloe Flourish in Black, and Bella Rhinestone Flourishes in Black (frame).

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior

The flag banner from Nicky’s Beach Huts Set has been given a makeover to suit the layout better. I have simply coloured in the flags with an Orange Gelato crayon and then I have added some Shimmerz Inklingz in Beets Me over the top for some pink added shimmer.

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior2

My background white cardstock was given a few scrapes of different shades of Shimmerz Dazzlerz Texture Paint. When this was dry, I have  added some more Shimmerz Dazzlers but this time in black and through a stencil.

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior3

Lots of extra gorgeous flowers to compliment the fabulous Flourish with a Bling Elise & Maddison flowers including some from Kaisercraft, Petaloo and Scrappers Garden.

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior4

I just love how the Bella Rhinestone Flourish frame looks like a hollywood backstage makeup mirror. It suits the photo perfectly seen as Mia and her friend are both dressed up playing and with some makeup on!

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!

Tahr very much by Judith

by admin ~ October 14th, 2014

Good morning, Judith here to share with you another layout using some of the new FWAB flowers. We recently visited Halls Gap Zoo in the Grampians in Victoria. You were able to feed some of the animals including the Himalayan Tahr, which is what this page is about.

IMG_8097

And some close ups

IMG_8100

I was so happy when I saw that FWAB had included some orange flowers into the range, as this is one of my favourite colours. Here I have teamed a FWAB Maddison in orange with a FWAB small Maddison in latte.

IMG_8099

I also added half a FWAB Trents Fence and part of a FWAB Grace Pearl Flourish in Copper.

IMG_8098

For my other cluster I have reversed the colours and used a large FWAB Maddison flower in latte and a small FWAB Maddison flower in orange, again with the half Trents fence and piece of Grace Pearl flourish in copper. Finally, I dotted a few loose adhesive pearls in copper around the page.

Thanks for looking and don’t forget there is a sale on flowers at the moment which you can find here

Hello…New flowers with Amy Prior

by admin ~ October 12th, 2014

Hi everyone!! Amy Prior back with you all again today to share another bright and fun layout with you all featuring tonnes of gorgeous Flourish with a Bling products used.

tn_Hello by Amy Prior

For this layout, I have used tonnes of the gorgeous new FWAB Ellise & Maddison flowers. Have you seen them yet? The new colours are divine and the new sizes are so darn cute and only $2 a pack you will need to get them all before they sell out. Click here to go shopping for these new flowers now!

tn_Hello by Amy Prior2

FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish in Orange & Jasmine Laser Flourish in pink were also used on this layout to add some fun and funky flair.

tn_Hello by Amy Prior3

I am so excited about these gorgeous new flower colours! Easily editable with different centres too which is so fun especially when clustering same flowers together like I  have here. The only rule i have when clustering flowers, is to never have the same style/shape/colour flowers next to each other. So I can easily change up the flowers with similar shapes to create that contrast still just by changing the centres!

tn_Hello by Amy Prior4

My black background cardstock was painted using a variety of Shimmerz paints in colours to match my papers. I have then also added some stencilling over the top using black Shimmerz Dazzlerz to bring back the black a little more to the background.

tn_Hello by Amy Prior5

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!

I have used a FWAB Maddison Flower – Red, FWAB Elise Flowers in Pale Blue and White,

Guard your heart canvas with Amy Prior

by admin ~ October 8th, 2014

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all today with a quick share. I recently created this fabulous canvas full of amazing colour along with one of my favourite bible verses and of course, Flourish with a Bling Flourishes were the perfect final addition for the piece.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior

To create this canvas, I have used various layers of Shimmerz paint added directly to the canvas and then also through stencils. I really wanted to grunge the colour up a bit so a bit of black archival ink rubbed here and there really helped that effect.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior2

Underneath my flower clusters are some fabulous FWAB Black Ellise Rhinestone Flourishes as well as some FWAB Black Bella rhinestone flourishes.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior3

When the chipboard, flowers and letter stickers were added, I wanted to add a hint of gold so I have rubbed various amounts of  Inka Gold in gold colour around the texture and edges and then I have added some FWAB Antique Gold Self Adhesive Individual Pearls scattered randomly around my clusters of flowers.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior4

Well that is it from me today, I hope I have inspired you to get bright and creative with your FWAB product stash and until next time, happy scrapping!

Great Outdoors by Judith

by admin ~ October 7th, 2014

Good morning FWAB fans. Today I have a layout to share with you using lots of FWAB products and lots of the new FWAB flowers. They now come in lots of lovely colours and are available in three sizes and what’s more there is a sale on this month so you can get packs for just $2.

Anyway, onto my layout:

IMG_8906

I have layered some FWAB Jack Vines in green with some rhinestone flourishes which form part of FWAB Kate’s Corner Flourish in Silver

IMG_8910

In the bottom cluster I have used two new flowers – a FWAB Elise flower in green and a small FWAB Maddison flower in lilac. I also used some more bits of Jack Vine and Kate’s Corner Flourish. They are all seated on a piece of grass out of FWAB’s Lee’s Tree. You can also see I sprinkled a few purple adhesive pearls and silver rhinestones which also come out of the Kate’s Corner Flourish pack. I also used a rhinestone for the chipboard bunny’s eye!

IMG_8909

In the middle cluster I used a FWAB Maddison flower in lilac together with a mix of other small flowers.

IMG_8908

In the top cluster I have again used a FWAB Maddison flower in lilac but teamed it up with two FWAB Elise flowers in lilac. Again I added a few flowers from my own collection.

IMG_8907

To finish off I added a few pieces of chipboard which I gessoed and coloured with a mix of Faber Castel gelatoes and stencilled some texture paste.

Thanks for looking and I hope I’ve inspired you to use some of the new flowers that FWAB have launched.

Christmas Layout – by Tracey Fowler

Hi Everyone,

Christmas is only 3 months away and I have to admit this is my very  first Christmas photo that I have scrapped from last Christmas!

 

I have used FWAB Trent’s Fence

 and FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 pack Red

Christmas-clup

 I have used one of fences from FWAB Trent’s Fence, to form part of my background under the photo and flower cluster and the dark green grass to add some colour under the photo.

 The  FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 pack Red add that extra pop of colour and give the effect of a hanging Christmas ornaments.

 Well that is all I have to share with you today. I hope that you enjoy the rest of  your weekend!

Happy Scrapping

Cards + FWAB! – by Chloe Nielsen

by admin ~ September 26th, 2014

Just a quick post from me today! I’m back with another card {I love making cards, have I said that before?? LOL}

I had these strips of paper left over from another FWAB project I created - I know, I don’t throw much away!!  (You should see my creative mess … I mean DESK!) … anyway, these leftover strips from the sunburst look fab on a card too!

I have used a FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish Latte, cut up as usual …

Forever Together – by Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ September 23rd, 2014

Hi Everyone,

What a strange week of weather here in the west! The weekend started off more like summer than spring with Perth hitting it’s hottest day on record for September (34.2C) and the following day we received 35mls of rain and it is back to feeling like winter again.

So with the current weather in mind, I pulled out one of my all time favourite photos of my two little boys which was taken many years ago playing at the beach,  and since it was raining outside, what better excuse than to scrap away until my heart is content….or should I say until my “ratbags” come looking for me and need something to eat or drink!

“Forever Together”

Forever-together

I have used FWAB Luke Flourish in Denim Blue under my photo to form the base of my layering. I have also added FWAB Maddison Flowers-Baby Blue and FWAB Elise Flowers in White.  To add my final touches to the layout and tie all the elements together I have used FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack in Blue.

Here are a few close ups of my layout.

Don’t forget this is your last chance for this year to grab  yourself a bargain at the FWAB Store.
