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.
Well it's Sunday morning, and I thought I'd sit and add another few layouts I've completed recently, they aren't in any particular order, but I hope you enjoy looking :)
This first one I've done using the gorgeous October Designer kit from Country Papercraft, it features some a Collage Press die-cut and loads of yummy Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers and embellishments, the photo's are of me at around 10 months of age, I was already walking, my poor Mum....lol.
Here I've used lovely bright Sassafras papers, stamps and stickers, some AC Thickers, and a gorgeous Mellissa Francis resin flower thingy, love those.
The title for the next one comes from the fact that my 3 year old can't say "Mowing the lawn", so he actually says "Lawning the Mow", very cute and very funny :) I've used Cosmo Cricket, Jenni Bowlin and Sassafras papers, some Cosmo and Basic Grey chipboard accents, and AC Thickers and Basic Grey alphas.
This next one is a bit of a Hybrid layout. I've done the photo circle using an Ali Edwards overlay which I downloaded from Designer Digitals here, then printed it out on photo paper, and cut out the circle, the rest of the layout is Sassafras and Collage Press papers, Prima flowers and lots of buttons from my stash, oh and some Basic Grey white chip alphas, this came together really quickly because of the digi part, and I love the fresh colours, and sweet photo's of course :)
And finally this is a very heritage layout I've done using the September designer kit from Country Papercrafts. This kit features lot of gorgeous Websters papers, and the photo's are of my DH's Grandparents on their wedding day. Anyway that's it for layouts for today, but I'll be back a little later with a Christmas card I've done for a challenge over at the Pink Persimmon blog.

Wow, back again, 2 posts in 2 days, un-believable :) Just a quick one today, but I just wanted to share a gorgeous bright mini-album I did a little while back for one of my DD's friends 10th birthday present. I have done it so that Emily can add photo's as she goes of her friends, she really loved the album, and the colours are her favorites, now I just have to make one for Georgia, as she was a bit sad that it wasn't for her once I had finished it, but she got over it....lol. Anyway, hope you enjoy checking this one out :) Have a great day.
For the actual album I've used a Basic Grey Milk Chocolate chipboard album, then covered it all with Collage Press Sweet Shoppe papers, the colours of these are delicious. I've also used lots of the die-cut pieces that come with the Sweet Shoppe paper pack, plus cut some of my own with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities. I've also added lots of some Prima flowers, lots of buttons, kindy glitz and ribbons, Martha Stewart glitter and some stamping.

Whoa, I haven't posted anything since July, that is just rediculous...lol...pretty sure I must be up there with the best of the worlds worst bloggers ;) but anyway, I'm back, and I am going to make a pretty good effort at keeping it up. It's not that I haven't been scrapping, I really have, it's just, well....I'm not sure what happened, but the longer I left it the more stuff I was going to have to post and that put me off even more....he, he, he. If you haven't already realised it, I am a MAJOR procrastinator, but....I am trying to curb my procrastinating ways...lol...we'll see how long that lasts :)
Anyway, lots has been going on in this little gorgeous part of Western Australia, lots of scrapping, card making, bringing up children, and everything that goes with that, only seeing DH a few days a month, which we still hate, but hopefully he will only be working away till next year, fingers crossed. My Mum and Dad have moved down this way too, which is wonderful, we are all loving having Nan and Pop close, yay Nan and Pop :)
Anyway, I won't go one any longer, I decided I would post a few of my fav layouts here tonight, and I'll try and post some more over the coming days, plus a few mini albums I've done recently.This first one uses some yummy Cosmo Cricket and Crate pp, and a Collage Press die cut, as well as an October Afternoon map card, Melissa Frances frame which I've painted, added a Cosmo Cricket image too, then put some Glossy Accent crackle medium over the image to look like cracked glass, I had lots of fun with this one, and I love how it turned out.Another bright one, using Sassafras papers, stamps and borders, also Cosmo Cricket rubons, Martha Stewart border punch, a Collections frame, and a Jenni Bowlin journal card. Very much inspired by Christine Middlecamp's beautifully layered and detailed layouts, she is my all time favorite scrapper, just check out her beautiful blog, and you will see why :)
This next layout is one I did as example for a sketch I provided for the Country Papercraft blog, the sketch is below, and please feel free to have a go. I used mainly Basic Grey Ambrosia papers here, the colours seem to be perfect.
This is one of my all time favorite layout I think, not sure why, but I really love how it turned out. I actually had a real play with some different bits and pieces on this one, but it all seemed to come together. I loved the quote which the lovely Deb from CPC provided for us, and it just seemed to evolve. I've used some Collage Press papers, the tree is a Websters sticker, lo
ts of Grunge for the title and heart, I even got my stamps and embossing powders out.
And finally, another bright one. This one features more gorgeous Cosmo Cricket and crate papers, some House of 3 tickets printed off on cardstock, an October Afternoon card, and some Grunge letters, inked and embossed. So that's about it for tonight, see you soon with some more scrapping goodness xoxo
