Is it Monday again already????

Far out where did that weekend go?, hope you had a great one too. We spent yesterday over at Margaret River, mainly the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, Mmmmmm, yum, gotta love that place. We are in love with their Hot Chocolates, being winter and all. They use some of their devine chocolate in the bottom of a glass then top in up with hot, frothy milk, OMG we were in heaven. Should have gotten a few photo's but I completely forgot to take my camera in, oh well, maybe a good excuse to go again ;0)

Well I also got to scrap a layout on the weekend too, amazingly, I got it finished in a few hours, this is some form of I used Sketch #196 from the Pencil Lines site, and all the products are from the latest Studio Calico July kit which is just gorgeous. Another photo of my 2 Ratbags over at Yallingup Beach a month ago. Ok, off to do some very boring bookwork, would much rather be scrapping but, oh, well :) Seeya.

New layouts and favorite new goodies

Well I can't believe I finally have 2 new layouts to share today, the only new layouts I've completed in the last 6 months, that is not's not that I haven't been taking any photo's because I have, it's just that I haven't seemed to be able to get any motivation to scrap like I'm use too, but I think my enthusiasm is coming back. Yay for that :) Both of the layouts feature kits from Studio Calico, the first is using a  Grannies Cupboard add-on, from the May kits, love the colours, and I finally got my Glimmermists out and had a little play, so that was fun.

Note: Click on the layouts if you'd like to see a larger picture :)

This next layout uses the June kit Partly Sunny again from Studio Calico. I took these photo's of Miss Georgia at the beach a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to scrap them, and I really like how this one turned out, lots of fun colour.

Next up I wanted to share a couple of my favorites so far from all the great CHA sneaks that are bouncing around. Both of these lines are from Crate Paper, and I am so in love with both of them, go check out their fantastic blog for more, plus some really beautiful layouts to inspire. What do you think? Have you seen any new products you just HAVE to have? 
This line is called Restoration, and I absolutely think I NEED all of the next one is called School Spirit, which is also just a bit gorgeous. I must say I'm not normally that fussed on school themed lines, but my goodnes I like this one.

Well that's enough dribble from me for today I think :) I have had 2 little sickies over the last 4 days, and my house looks like a bomb went off, so I had better get to some of the boring stuff. See ya !

Just popping in....

on a Sunday night to share a couple more projects I've haven't posted here, the first is a card that I made a few months back for my Brother and Sister-in-laws wedding card. I used my Cuttlebug a few times on this one, I've cut the heart and the book page with the Label 1 Nestabilities, then I've embossed the cream cardstock at the back. I then just glued the vintage buttons to the heart, added a Tattered Angels post card, a rub-on and some string, and that's it, a vintage inspired wedding card :)

And lastly I have a layout for you. I did a little photoshop work on the photo's by adding them to a House of3 digital template and printing them all out together. The rest of the layout is pretty much all Sassafras, including the stamped border along the top, I love the brightness of this layout, the photo's have lots of colour, as well as the papers, but by putting it all a white background I think it all works ok, there is enough white space to carry it. Hope you enjoy :-) Anyway, that's it for tonight, I'll be back tomorrow with some more. Night x

Autumn colour and a layout

Hi there, and happy Thursday. I was just editing a couple of photo's I took last week and thought I would share. The Autumn colour at our place at the moment is just gorgeous, so I snapped a couple of pics of my boys as we were heading back to the house for lunch. Since I took them the trees have almost lost all of there leaves so I'm glad I got some photo's when I did. It's a shame the sun wasn't co-operating for the second shot, but I included it anyway, it's a good shot of the trees :)

And lastly I wanted to share a layout I did at the end of last year and never posted here. The photo is of me when I was just a little girl :) wearing the most luscious knitted dress....ha, ha, and holding onto my Big Ted. The layout features lots of Basic Grey Nook and Pantry papers and some Sassafras paper whimsies (love those!). I've also used my Martha Stewart doily lace border punch to punch all the strips, and the centre of the big flower I have made using lots of Glossy Accents, and the little bits of confetti left from cutting the strips, love the effect, and I didn't have to throw them Well, that's about all for the day, I'm off to do a bit more of my mini-album below, so lets hope I have some creative inspiration :) Bye for now.

Blogging return....

Well hello there, after nearly half the year neglecting my blog, I have finally got around to updating and posting again...woo, hoo!!! I have been having a little play with the design of the blog and I'm not quite finished yet, I still want to design a new header, but, I will be back on a more regular basis from now on. I have decided to not only focus my blog on scrapping and card making, but other things that make me happy and inspire me, so expect to see some home design inspiration, design inspiration in general, bits and piece of food stuff, recipes etc... and anything else I feel like sharing with you ;)

So, to start with I have a little peak at a mini-album I'm in the process of finishing at the moment, I'm planning on putting it in my etsy shop when I've finished, that is unless I can't part with also some crochet flower embellishments I've done for the shop also. I have been teaching myself to crochet, and have been having all sorts of fun making these little flowers using up a heap of embroidery thread I've had forever, a leftover from my cross-stitch days. They are so sweet, and perfect for adding to layouts, cards and mini-albums.
Next up, is a card  I made last week using some gorgeous new October Afternoon papers, ribbon, a vintage book page and one of my crochet flowers. I cut the shape of the card with my new, and very much loved Tim Holtz die, which I have also used to cut all the pages of the mini-album above. So, I hope you enjoy these little bits and I will be back soon with some more goodies.

Layouts and Chritsmas cards

Hi there. Well, the latest edition of Country Papercrafts newsletter went out yesterday, so I thought I would share with you my creations. The new Designer Kit at CPC was also released yesterday, and it is very delish :) Lots of Basic Grey Nook and Pantry, which I totally adore, and a couple of layouts using the kit and add-on kit are below. First up though are some cute 3x3 inch little gift cards, we were asked to come up with a set of 6, and these are mine. I used all Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses" papers and stickers, also lots of Kindy Glitz, bling and my Cuttlebug. I love the pink background, and those papers are just so cute :)This layout was done for another designer challenge where we were asked to use Christmas papers, but not Christmas photo's. I've used Collage Press Joy Ride, and Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding and Fruit Cake as my Christmas papers, then added some Joy Ride chip accents. I love these photo's of my little man, having a great time at the sports carnival.
And the last 2 are both done using the CPC Designer kit and Add-on. The kits have lots of gorgeous bits for you to create with.

Well that's about all for today, hope the rest of your Wednesday is wonderful :)

A Christmas Card.

Just wanted to share a Christmas card I've done for a sketch challenge I found on thePinkPersimmon blog. You didn't have to use their stamps, but I was dying to use their Little Red Wagon stamps I purchased from Country Papercraft last week, so this is what I came up with. I've also used the totally gorgeous Collage Press Joy Ride papers, I think this is my most favorite Christmas line this year. I have done some paper piecing with the Pink Persimmonstamps, and I am just about to post a quick tutorial on the Country Papercraft blogto show how I've done the card, so pop on over there if you are interested. Ok, off to scrap some more now.
