Here's a layout I did using papers from the Teresa Collins Fabrications range. I used Green Diamond for the base, accented with Red Flowers, and Ornate Brackets as the inner background. It's quite a simple layout, but I love the rich detail in this range, which makes a striking combination.

Hope you are all getting ready for the big fat man to come and enjoying the mayhem that we know as Christmas. I can't believe that this year is nearly over and my oldest will be going to high school next year. I can still remember when she first started school.
This is also a big month for me as I am about to have a big birthday.............so in order to celebrate this event I have decided to have a big Birthday Sale and would love if you would all join in.
From today there will be 30% OFF storewide excluding new items, bazzill, washi tape and papers and stock already reduced and on sale. The prices reflect already on the website and I have tried my best to make sure that the inventory of the stock is up to date but if something is not available I will give you a refund.
So why not come by and celebrate the Big Birthday Sale at Scrapbook Divas.
cheers and happy scrapping

It's Tina Connolly here and I wanted to share my latest favorite layout using Basic Grey "Paper Cottage" papers from Scrapbook Diva's. I used "Porch Swing"for the base, "Clothesline" for my next layer and photo mat, and "Brunch" as my third layer. I punched around all my layers using Martha Stewart punches. I fussy cut a few doiley shapes from the reverse of the "Clothesline"paper.
Here's a fun layout I did using a Crafter's Workshop template. I masked a rectangle using old scrap paper, then I applied Derivan Gel Medium with an old credit card, allowed it to dry then spritzed with mists. Michelle has lots of lovely Glimmermist in the store here.
Sawyers Place Washi tape and Authentique "Lively" paper and stickers

Hey, it's me (Tina Connolly) again with a tutorial for you. I promised I'd showcase how I use my Derivan Gel Medium.
Here's my finished layout...
I used a double masking technique on this layout, first making a triangle shape with some scrap paper, then applying the Gel Medium with an old credit card through a template. I also used some texture paste to give a different textural finish, but you could use Derivan Impasto or Derivan Gesso in the same manner.
Glimmer Mist available here.
Tim Holtz Distress Inks stay wet longer and blend beautifully. I use either a dauber (as pictured) or a makeup sponge.

Derivan Gel Medium over a Crafter's Workshop template and then rubbed some Perfect Pearls across it once it had almost dried. Gel Medium is one of my favorite products and I'll be showcasing it in a couple of layouts over the next few weeks.

Sawyers Place Bianca Floral and Sawyers Place Pink Dots. I've stamped along some of the Pink Dots tape using Stazon Ink and a music note stamp to create another pattern. I've also used the Washi tape to journal on. Just make sure you use a permanent pen like a Sharpie, as the Washi tape has a slightly waxy finish.
Authentique "Lively" stickers and Prima flowers to embellish my page.
Authentique Lively "Chipper", and is a gorgeous heavyweight paper with a slight texture.
