We are welcoming the lovely and super talented Paula Roomer aka PaNaRoo into the Designer Spotlight. Paula is very new to blogging and I am sure she would love to see some people pop by her blog to leave some love and to become a follower too. Lets all give this talented designer a real big Simon boost!

Paula used a Dyan Reavely and a Tim Holtz Dotted Layering Stencil for the background and she added two ‘Trio’s of something’ to this card. The first one are 3 colours of Dylusions Spray. She also blended these colours to use for colouring the flowers. The second one are the ‘flower fishes’ made using a Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane Stamp Set. When you look closely you can see the little air bubbles like they are swimming under water. For the texture effect of the flower fishes she used Embossing Powder.


Andrea made three notebooks using Dylusions Creative Dyary Tape, words from Dyan Reaveley’s Say It How It Is stamp set, Dylusions paint, and a Dylusions Holes stencil.

Anna-Karin made a trio of ATCs featuring animals with attitude. She used Dyan Reaveley’s fun Dylusions Heads n Tails stamp set, as well as various Dylusions paints.

Barbara created a card using Glorius Bouquet stamp by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous painted with three Dylusions Sprays as watercolors. She mixed them to create different shades of colors! To complete her project she added Tim Holtz Sizzix Shadow script 1 and Idea-ology Botanical Paper.

Cheiron used 3 patterns to create her background on this card using the Dylusions Fish Face  stamp set and painted the image in using Dylusions Shimmer Sprays as watercolors in Funky Fuschia, Calypso Teal, Tangerine Dream, Fresh Lime and Crushed Grape.


Emma used the Dyan Reaveley Small Creative Journal to create a layout all about a family generation of three women. She used a trio of Tim Holtz Photo Booth images, together with a trio of stamped bees from the Entomology Stamp set before adding three Star Adornments and a quote using Big Chat Stickers.

Kath used a trio of words from Dylusions Word Love stamp set, Dylusions PaintsCreative Dyary Stickers, Number Jumble Stencil and Clearly Borders to decorate the pages in her Dylusions Small Creative Journal

Lols made a trio of cards using a trio of birds from a Dyan Reaveley Cat Among The Pigeons Stamp Set. She made the background using a Gelli Plate, Dylusions Acrylic Paints and a Holes Stencil. The sentiments are handwritten in a ‘Dyan’ boxed in style.


Macarena couldn’t resist to make three ATCs using three Dyan Reaveley Dylusions Paints: Bubblegum Pink, Crushed Grape and Black Marble. She made her background using Old School Alpha stencil by Dyan Reaveley.



Maura made a trio of bookmarks using Dyan Reavely’s Dylusions Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest and Bubblegum Pink paints and her gelli plate.


Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page using Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray Dyan Reaveley for the background, and decorated it with three butterflies from Idea-Ology Botanical Layers Paperie.

Sandra made a vibrant trio of Dyan Reavely cards using three kind of Dyan Reavely products, like Dylusions Paint, Dylusions Spray and a Dylusions stencil Old School Numbers


Zoey used Dyan Reaveley The right words, Dian Reaveley Write Between The Lines Stamp set and Dyan Reaveley DooLally Dorrys Stamp set to create these inspirational trio card for her friends.
