Hey Peeps,

Did you guess who our fabulous guest is this week? I can’t believe it. I’m soooooo excited. I’ve been a (stalking) fan of Dawns for ever and no wonder when you see the utter gorgeousness of her designs. I always feel like I just want to dip into that pool of watercolour loveliness every time she brings something new out.

Dawn, a fellow Brit, works mostly in mixed media and watercolour making her designs very unique. You might think that would make scrapbooking quite hard but you’d be surprised just how easy it is to use. Dawn has created a truly beautiful set of designs especially good for working in scrapbooking and journalling and even hybrid for those of you who like to get your hands dirty.

On a personal level Dawn is one of those people you meet and fall in love with instantly. She’s truly a lovely person with a generous heart. She loves communicating with her many fans via her facebook page and loves sharing her layouts, especially those with her daughter who happens to love owls (you’ll see a lot of owls feature in Dawns work). I hope you’ll all enjoy getting to know her and her work as much as I do.

Dawn recently moved stores to the fabulous Lily Pad having spent many years at ScrapbookGraphics. You can find her store HERE

Check out her latest collection to see what I mean.

I don’t know about you guys but my bag is filled with so much stuff that I can barely carry it these days, lol. What’s more, I’m sure if I was to go through it I’d find things in there I thought were lost for all time.

I think this collection is a perfect way to scrap about ourselves. It’s something we, as memory keepers, rarely do isn’t it. Most of our efforts are spent creating scrapbook pages about our family, friends, vacations and so on but we never really do anything about ourselves and we really should or how are our loved ones going to remember us?

This kit really lends itself to doing just that but in the most fun and comfortable way possible. It’s a great was to start the habit of keeping your own memories too. After all, we are special too, right?

MY CURRENT DAWN INSKIP FAVOURITES

I have lots of DI favs but sadly my two very favourite collections are not in the new store (The Olympic Games and the British Royals) but Dawn has so much in her store it’s easy to find new favourites. Here’s a look at two of my current favs.

ALWAYS AND FOREVER

dinskip_AAF_elements_prev-b4256f675f

The moment I saw this collection my heart did a flippy flop twizzy (which felt really weird 😉 ) and I just had to have it. The colours and textures in it are sumptuous and reminded me instantly of days on the beach licking sherbet ice-creams. It’s like walking out in to a sunny morning after a week of rain. It lifts the spirit and makes you feel all glowing and happy inside.

BESOTTED

The title perfectly describes what I felt when this beauty was released and I’ve been besotted with it ever since. I love the palette but what I love more are all the gorgeous extras that come with this collection. Take a look and see what I mean.

Dawn often creates stand alone packs to help you fill up your scrapping stash and add that little extra touch of uniqueness to your pages. Here are a couple of my favourite DI fillers

GESSO

I love texture so this fabulous gesso pack is a must. It’s great for adding texture and uniqueness to a page and makes your pages stand out  from the rest.

TORN PAPER MASKS

I’ve seen these often in Dawns collections and they really do help you make a statement in your layouts. They are so easy to use too as they come in PSD, TIF and PNG formats to suit all editing programs. You simply clip your photo/image to the mask and voilà … cool is an understatement.

GRIP SEALED TRINKETS

Now I love a good bit of bling on a layout. Give me a trinket or two and I’m a happy little bunny but it has to be said, nothing in my stash, which is, as you know, extensive, comes close to matching these gorgeous little bags of goodies. I’m truly fascinated with them. As a Designer, I have no idea how Dawn manages to get these to look so real. As a scrapper I want them and then I want many, many more like them (hint, hint Dawn 😉 )
