Tenth Tute

Hello everybody,

Welcome to this month's "Tenth Tute". I have chosen to write about monochromatic layouts.

Monochromatic layouts are layouts that use one specific colour, therefore always having that "pulled-together" look. Using colours from the same colour family when creating layouts is a simple way to draw the viewer into your photographs. Using monochromatic colours will help you overcome the intimidation you may feel when choosing colours for your layout, since it is so easy to use various shades of one colour.

First example is by the very talented Kathryn who has used several shades of pink giving a whole lot of variety to this page. From the beautiful bold pink to the soft pastel pink the colours all compliment each other perfectly. The patterned papers used also incorporate various shades of pink, tying the page together beautifully. The circle of pink draws your eye directly to the photo.

The next example is by the gorgeous Tracy where she has used different shades of blue to compliment her exquisite flowers. Again the circle of colour and flowers draws your eye directly to the beautiful photo.

Another example by Tracy is this gorgeous layout using different shades of green. The greens definitely compliment the photos of her children decorating the tree at Christmas which is such a harmonious and peaceful time. (well sometimes – lol!)

So next time you are procrastinating about what papers or colours to use for the special photo, why not try a monochromatic layout for something totally different.

I would love to welcome the gorgeous KELLIE WINNELL to our Kreative Team. Kellie will be creating gorgeous cards (and maybe a layout every now and then - we have to coax her back to the craft each month to inspire you and I am sure we will see plenty of those gorgeous Magnolia Stamps in use.
Kellie's talent in card making is just awe-inspiring and I oohh and aahh every time she posts a new creation in the gallery.

So welcome Kellie!!!


I had such an awesome response to the Magnolia Stamps that I have now placed my second order with Magnolia for a much larger range of their stamps, including their new Spring line which is just gorgeous. I would not call myself a stamper, but rather a scrapbooker, however, I have fallen in love with these gorgeous stamps (thank you Kellie :) ). I have created a layout (above) using Tilda with Clover to show that they are so versitile and can be used in both crafts. The new range should be here by the end of April.

The arrival of April means the arrival of a new kit by one of our very talented Kreative Team. Nat King's kit was supposed to come out this month, however, unfortunately Making Memories have let us down and not shipped the papers to our Aussie Supplier as yet. So at short notice (very short notice), Katrina Parry stepped in and put together a gorgeous kit containing the very delicious Bo Bunny Alissa papers - they are truly beautiful. From the kit you will be able to create a gorgeous wall hanging (below), a layout or two and a few cards. There are plenty of gorgeous ribbons, flowers and chipboard pieces to complete your projects. With a retail value of in excess of $26.50, the kit is amazing value at only $20.00, so stop by the store and purchase yours today. Don't forget to post your completed projects in the gallery for all to see :).

Also available are our monthly Kreative Kits which are selling fast.
