“You’re one in melon” Single page layout

Hi there, Creatives!

I just love this photograph of my niece! Don’t you? And to capture her innocence I decided to go with clean lines, and very little mixed media elements except some gold paint splatters. The pink Little Birdie Flowers and chipboard were the perfect choice to use with the fun Lady Pattern: “Good Times and Tan Lines” paper.

“You’re one in a melon!”


Let’s start!


Step 1

Step 1

For the background I use a pink patterned paper and white cardstock. I trimmed the card-stock to 11” x 11” and punched a decorative border on the bottom side. Then I used a black thin liner to draw in some faux stitches. To create layers behind the photo I adhered 2 complimenting pieces of patterned paper measuring 6” x 7,5” and 4,5” x 6”. I then splattered with the Tinted Metallic Paint, Golden Glaze.

 Tip: Remember to wash your paintbrush immediately.

Step 2

Step 2

The next layer is formed with the Little Birdie Chipboard Brick Wall and flowers.

Step 3

Step 3

The photograph and sentiment card is adhered on top of the flowers and chipboard elements. The melon is line with some Glossy Accents to create some interest. And I use a 3″x4′ photograph printed with a white frame.

Step 4

Step 4

I embellished with small Beaded Micro Florettes- Cerise Pink, enameled brads, paperclips with bakers twine and Florettes and coordinating ribbon.

Step 5

Step 5

To finish the layout off, I did a few cross-stitches with golden embroidery floss and some sticker words.

I hope this leaves you inspired to create something pretty!.

I used the following Little Birdie supplies for this single page layout:

  • Symphony Flowers, Candy Mix
  • Beaded Micro Florettes: Cerise Pink
  • Primed Chipboard – Brick wall
  • Tinted Metallic Paint – Golden Glaze
  • Gel Medium



The Sky is the Limit Card

Hello friends,  it is Linda here from Down Under – thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I am sharing a Mixed Media Card  with you – highlighting the Sparkle Paste, along with many other products from Little Birdie Crafts. I have used Little Birdie Sparkle Paste, Patterned Paper, Handmade Flowers, Chipboard, Boutique Elements and more – there is a list with links below!

Apply Sparkle Paste- Whipped Cream to the Chipboard – Wings and allow to dry.  Cut the patterned paper from the  Cottage Lace pack to 15cm x 15cm, making sure the lace pattern is all along the bottom of the card front.  Adhere a length of Satin Ribbon around the lower portion of the card front, securing at the back of the patterned paper using double side tape.

Glue the wings to the card front, followed by a flower from Symphony Ocean Mist to the centre of the wings.

Curl the green floral stems on the flowers and arrange the flowers from the Beaded Blooms- Arctic IceBouquet Moon Light  and Metallic CURLY rose  either side of the centre flower, glue into place one you are happy with the way they look.

Glue a matching Satin Bow to the centre of the ribbon and a homemade butterly embellishment to the knot.  Adhere a computer generated sentiment to the top portion of the card front, centred and a butterfly to the left of the sentiment.

Never Stop Dreaming

Helllloooooooo Everyone…. Amanda here! Today I have a project for you as Guest Designer for Little Birdie and I am super excited!

First up I have done some stenciling onto an 8″x8″ Burlap Panel using Fibre Paste.

Then I painted a layer of white gesso and played around with some of the Color Splash Sprays and spritzed water to dilute them and move them around.

I added a bit of gold metallic paint all over with my finger, glued some cheesecloth for a bit of extra texture, then I coloured a piece of chipboard with Black Gesso and attached it.

I arranged some gorgeous Little Birdie flowers.

I then added some crystal drops around the flowers and some blue rhinestones on the background.

And my project is ready! Here are some final images

Hope you all liked my project! Loads of love and hugs

Amanda Mason
