Saturday Bits and Bobs.

Hi there, well it's Saturday, and the day is flying I was up late last night finishing my submission for the Designers Call at Inspired Blueprints, and phew, I got it done and.....I actually think I really like this I actually ended up doing 2 lo's but wasn't so sure about the first, so did another, the first version is the lo below, I used the #3 sketch over at 
Inspired Blueprints for this one. I couldn't help but take this photo of Mr Will a few days ago, he looked so sweet and angelic...ROFL...he's not like that normally :)
 The Christmas birdhouses below are made with a template available HERE
by the very talented Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink. Aren't they cute, and you can really get creative with just the basic template as a start. They would make great little teacher gifts I think. Anyway that's it for today, have a great rest of the weekend. Bye for now x

Hi there, how has your Wednesday been? We've had a gorgeous Spring day here today, not that I got out much, I got stuck into cleaning up my scrapping desk so that I could actually....scrap, now there's an idea. My desk was such a wreck, but it's all good now, so I guess I'll be scrapping tonight...yay!
 I am going to have a go at the latest Inspired Blueprints sketch, they are only a new sketch site, but their sketches are awesome, well worth a look. They are also calling for a new design team member, so I thought I might give it a go, you never know.

Well, talking about sketches....I thought I would post one of mine on here, it's my No#1 sketch, I've only done 3 so far, but quite enjoy it . So...if it inspires you, go for it, I would love to see what you do with it (perhaps leave a comment with a link for me). If you do use one of my sketches, I would love it if you would link back to here if you post it somewhere. Thanks heaps, and hope you have a great Thursday :)

Sunday Stuff.

Ok, So I'm not off to a very good start with regular blog posts, but I've been a tad busy finishing up some pages for the Mid-November newsletter for Country Papercraft, just thought I'd share a few Christmas projects I've been doing and a layout which all went out in the newsletter. Enjoy!

This lo is using the totally devine Basic Grey Offbeat collection, love the colours.
To cut the scallops I folded the cardstock over, then put the largest of my Nestabilites scallop on top so that a small amount of the die was off the edge so that leave a spot for it to hinge if that makes sense???
This is a card for giving someone a Gift Card/voucher, the idea came from Jennifer Mcguire at the Hero Arts blog, check that blog out for some awesome inspiration. Love the Kaiser bling tree on this one.
Here I've stamped on transperancy and placed that over some gorgeous Kaiser Xmas paper, then placed that behind a square I cut and embossed with a square Nestabilities die.

And finally, I've been saving some of the nicer shopping bags I've gotten over the last few months, and using Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers and stickers, and lots of Kindy Glitz, I've turned them into very cute Christmas Gift bags, ready to fill with gorgeous Christmas goodies.
