Hello!! Briony here, popping in briefly to share some super exciting news today! We are so very happy to announce a new Design Team member to join our little family …. KIM EWINS! Kim has such a gorgeous style of scrapping that I know will inspire many. Here a few words from Kim and her LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday. …
Hello everyone…. boy am I super excited to be here designing for Anna’s Craft Cupboard!
For those of you that don’t know me, I would like to share a little bit about myself and my crafting ventures to date.
My name is Kim Ewins, my husband and I have eight-Yes, you read correctly *8- children, consisting of 5 sons and 3 daughters. Only 3 of our children are still living at home. I also have 2 gorgeous grandsons.
I live in the Central Tablelands region of NSW. I try to keep healthy, and I have recently started working after 27-years of raising children.
I first ventured into scrapbooking around 10 or 11 years ago, after my youngest child was born, and it became a real passion. I perused a lot of the online scrapping forums, entered challenges, scrapped with friends, attended the Brisbane Scrapbooking Expo and just really enjoyed my creative time.
I have designed for a few online challenge sites and shops including Stuck Sketches, CSI Color Stories Inspiration, Scrap Around the World, Scrap the Boys, Craft Queen, Scrapmatts, and Scrappy Chat Designs. I have also been published in Scrapbooking Memories on numerous occasions.
Furthermore, I have had the pleasure of teaching and demonstrating at The Brisbane Scrapbooking & Papercraft Expo and, on occasion, I am invited to conduct classes in smaller communities.
I love to create layouts, cards and gift tags. I enjoy working with neutral and pastel colours, but I think I am pretty versatile. With two grandsons on the scene, I can see myself scrapping with a few brights as well. I love a bit of grunge, and I also play with lots of layers and texture.
I am truly hoping to add even more inspiration to the already amazing team here at Anna’s Craft Cupboard.
We are so thankful to Kim for sharing her talents with us and can’t wait to see what she has in store! 🙂
Hello there! Kim here to share with you my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday.
A very pretty range, indeed. Perfect colours for this photo of my daughter, Sidney. LemonCraft Violet Silence is now available in Anna’s store, HERE
Here is my layout ‘Friday’
I added a little extra texture to my base paper by using texture paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. Once the texture paste was dry I then placed a small amount of Lindy’s Magical shaker in Polka Purple to a small amount of water and using a paint brush added it over some of the stencil work.
Next I matted my photo using Violet Silence paper No 5, and added an additional layer using the same paper but using the reverse side.
I added a selection of Prima Lavendar-Milane Paper Flowers. I also fussy cut a few flowers from the Vintage Times sheet and added these to my cluster. Then, I fussy cut a butterfly, added some micro beads from a gorgeous little pot of ‘I Cannot Tell a Lilac’ HERE.
I splattered a little of the Lindy’s Magical shaker- Polka Purple and a touch of black ink around. Lastly, using some Tom Holtz Distress Oxide in wilted violet and a length of stiff cardboard I went around the outer edge of my layout, roughly 3mm in from edge, to create a little border.
I really hope you have enjoyed looking at my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday today as much as I enjoyed creating it!
