New Kaiser paper blooms

Happy Sunday to you all.... time I showed you some of the beyond the page work I've been doing for Kaiser. I feel a bit odd about them actually as both projects do not have photos. It was quite nice to put my "crafter" hat on rather than my scrapping hat for a change...although I am feeling some with drawls. The first is a sewing box and the 2nd I've called an inspiration tree. It has one of my all time fav verses on it Desiderata. Think I need to do a layout now!!

Also have to say, these paper blooms are delicious! So easy to work with and gorgeous - going to get a pack of these in every colour!!!

Finally some scrappin!

What a whirl wind few weeks we have just had! We have been away on holidays watching the flood crisis unfold feeling so very helpless. We had a great time away, although watching the images on TV from a hotel room was quite unsettling. Thank God our families are all safe and sound; I feel so very blessed and my heart goes out to all that have lost loved ones, I cannot imagine how you are feeling. On a more positive note, I have been busily getting Caitlin ready for her last year of kindy as she starts prep in 2012. I've also started some BTP projects for Kaiser Robina and having a heap of fun with the gorgeous Kaiser paper blooms... very pretty indeed! ALSO..I have 3 layouts to show you, 1 is for Anna's Jan challenge, the other 2 are just because :)

Gwen's Favourite Things

Ok, I know I'm not Oprah but I love love love her "favourite things" shows. So, I was all inspired to do my very own version and let you all know my fav scrapbook things for 2010.... drum roll please....

1. Making Memories hands free kit - Not sure if they were released in 2010 but I got mine in early 2010 and I'm soo impressed. I love my slice machine and think it's totally under-rated... and going hands free has been cool as!

2. Echo Park - No, not the LA suburb, the company.. they make AMAZING paper and stickets etc - super cute! Definitely worth checking out. Also, there is a new range coming "Little Girl" and I already have mine on advance order... CANNOT WAIT!!!

3. - If you're an Aussie you MUST check this place out. Cheap and super efficient service. I get my 12x12 Papermania Stack N Store boxes from these guys - cheapest on the net; and you can quote me on that!

4. The power of the 6x6 paper pad. I know, they've been around for ages... but I didn't realise (until recently) just how cool they are! I love layering paper and often only need 1 12x12 sheet of paper for a layout; the rest is bits and pieces, so they are a really cost effective way to get a great selection of paper from a range. My personal fav right now - My Minds Eye: Fine and Dandy. (No surprises there for regular readers)

and last but not least...
5. The Organised Housewife - Check her out on facebook, she sets challenges for de-cluttering, heaps of tips for Mums AND she's a scrapper!

and that's my fav 5 things for 2010!
NOW, I know I promised some goals and I'm getting there, really I am....
