Bird is the word "Love"

It's Sunday again and I've had a great weekend of scrapping...

This is my take on Bird is the Word "Love" challenge. I wanted to do something different from the lovey dovey layouts (not that there is ANYTHING AT ALL wrong with those) it's just that I am totally in love with my scrap space right now... any who, here it is....




I hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend... and thanks for stopping by.

Blind scrap at Scrap Therapy


Hi Everyone,

I had a blast last night doing the Blind scrap challenge at Scrap Therapy. I didn't get a chance to do it live on Wednesday night, but they post the instructions so you can do it later... and here is what I've come up with...





I've used satin seam binding and the nicest string from Craft Queen of course!! AND more of the Miss Nelly range from Kaiser :)

Now, I didn't follow the instructions exactly mainly because there were tags involved which I really don't do... mine became paper strips (the blue ones).... I'm really happy with it and it is really a heap of fun.

Until next time

It's been a while...

Happy Friday night everyone... my most fav time of the week!!

Well, it has been a while, but I finally have some more Kaiser work to share!! I was super excited to be asked to have a play with the new Miss Nelly range and the 3 drawer peg shelf - I literally jumped at the chance. It is now on display at the warehouse store in Robina so get in store to check it out; they always have a stack of bargins too so well worth a trip. They will not have this range available until November, however Nicole at Craft Queen does have the paper pads and journal tags available right now. This is one of my all time Kaiser favs! :)



Hope you all have a great weekend...

Most Productive weekend eva!

Hi Everyone, Happy Sunday to you all.

I have had a very productive weekend indeed. First up I created my layout for Bird is the Words "Dream" challenge.





This one is a real mix of embellies, from A Lil Somethin and Purple pumpkin and Twiddleybitz chip and Teresa Collins too. Also, used some of Mum's ribbon and the cute lil paper flowers are Craft Queen.

I just love going back and scrapping old photos, my style has developed so much since this photo was taken and it's really good to get a mix of old and new in my albums.

I've also scrapped a layout of me, just because... with my op recently, it really got me thinking about the records I've left of myself for Caitlin and Daddy. I've also been journalling A LOT MORE on the back of my layouts for this same reason.





I've used Glitz Design paper, Kaiser, more Purple Pumpkin, Prima and Mum's ribbon. I just love these beautiful rich colours.

I also... (told you it was productive) did a layout for the Craft Queen Blog and have also FINALLY put away my layouts (about 30 of them!!) into their albums which was a job and a half!!!

Phew... and that's it (I think) Thanks for visiting and reading this far!!!

August Ribbon Club

Happy Friday everyone! Ohh sooo glad to be up and in my scrap room again!! I have officially got the all clear to drive and things are returning to normal :) It's a new month and I was lucky enough to be asked to design the August Ribbon Club at Craft Queen; a classic combo of bright blue, green and orange - bring on Summer!!!

Here is a sneak peak.... click on the link below for more info.




August Ribbon Club

I also took a shot of my Purple Pumpkin goodies I won over at the birthday sale, you'll all be pleased to know it wasn't hard to spend my $50 gift voucher and then some!! You'll be seeing more of this on my layouts for sure :)



and last but not least, a couple more shots of my craft room. These are just a couple of draws, there is one more but it's a bit "junky" so I didn't take a shot of that. It has tape and Kindy glitz and some glitters and that's it.

First up is a heap of lil jars I got from IKEA which house all sorts of little embellies and things, all marked of course :) and matching...


2nd shot is just my punches, one draw for Martha and the other draw for all others... I've been teaching Caitlin which are which. You are never too young to learn to appreciate the wonder of Martha Stewart!! :)


Now off to have a play with the new Authentique range paper pads amongst other things...
thanks for popping by and sharing the love :)
