Albert Kit ....

Have been working on some sample layouts for the Albert Kit at D-lish Kits. I decided to add some cardstock to my kit and have made these two layouts. I still have loads of leftovers ... over one whole sheet of pp if you add all the scraps together and still quite a few embellishments. I reckon I could do another 2 layouts if I added more cardstock and maybe just a few embellies from my stash.

This kit is great value at $24.15 which is 25% off RRP!! The word "Play" in the second layout is from the Heidi Swapp stamp that comes with the kit .... NOT a stamped image ... but an actual stamp you can do yourself and then you have it to keep forever!!
There are 3 other kits available at the moment too .... and there are more great examples on the D-lish Kits blog. Be sure to head on over and check them out!!!

Scrappy Sunday ....

I decided this morning that today would be a day just for me!! I put the whole day aside to scrap and although I didn't get done as much a I dreamed ... I did finish two layouts so am super happy with that!

This one is for Lets Get Shabby ... this month's theme is white and/or cream with a hint of one other colour. I created the rose trellis out of the left over "rails" from the Collections picket fence chipboard. I have painted it with distress paint and then weaved the pieces together. I then twisted the stems of the roses around the trellis to make it look like a rambling vine. As a finishing touch I added some leaves from the D-lish Scrap store. The papers are Pink Paislee and Crate Paper which have been distressed and machine stitched around the edges. The heart shaped paper doiley is also from the D-lish Scraps store. I have also added the tulle which I gathered at points with more leaves and roses and then stitched to the page. I finished it off with some punched out butterflies with kaiser pearls on them.

Not quite as shabby as I had first envisioned but this is where it told me to stop! hehehe

My second effort for the day is for the Artastic chalenge blog which is run by my friend Shazza. I took inspiration from the colour scheme and since it was a painting I figured that I had to use paint!!

Well that's the efforts from my "selfish" day ... tomorrow it is back to the DT stuff, class prep, kits and the like ..... humph!!

Out of the Hat - September challenge

I just love September's criteria for Out of the Hat .... Black & White with 1 other colour, distressing and multi alpha title.

This is my sample layout for the challenge .... A mixture of all my fave things at the moment:

- great finds at the markets
- Websters Pages papers
- goodies from my online store ... D-lish Scraps

You will be seeing a lot more of my wedding photos scrapped in the future .... my love of all things girlie/vintage is seeing me fast run out of pics to scrap!! I have always wanted to scrap my wedding pics and did start an 8 x 8 album for them. But I just can't get my head around the size and my stupid idea of having them all in the same colour scheme gets boring really quickly!!

I know I have been a really bad blogger the last few months. It's not from lack of trying though .... it's just that most ot the work that I produce I can't share .... DT stuff and class samples etc. I really think it may be time to get back to some scrapping just for me again ....

Time to share ....

Firstly I have my sample layout for Out of the Hat. This month's challenge is to use bling on a boys page, minimum of 3 circles and staples.

I had chosen the photo and decided to use the papers from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection and it wasn't until I was putting it together that I realised the die cut sticker set had the words "You're the Coolest" in it ..... just perfect for the pic!!!

There is still plenty of time of you would like to join in this month at Out of the Hat .... entries are open till midnight on the 25th. Head on over to the blog for full details.

I have also been working on some ATC's for various swaps. This one is for Uproar and the theme was "A Splash of Colour", background was done with homemade alcohol inks on glossy cardstock, butterflies stamped on acetate and the scroll is silver ink that has been embossed in clear.

And this one is for the "Shabby Chic" swap at Challenge Chics. Edges are embossed with Queens Gold emboss, fence is Collections chippie that has been distress painted with distress ink rubbed into the cracks. The small roses I made myself from pink photocopy paper .... the smallest was a 3/4 inch circle!!

OMG!! I won again!!!

I can't believe I won another prize!! I guess it really does pay to be in the right place at the right time!

I will be the proud owner of a complete set of 5 storage units for RW Lasercuts!! You can see the little beauties here, these ones have been decorated but I am assuming that mine will come undressed.

Wow!! Now if only I can make all this good luck transpire to the lottery .... hehehe.

On another note, if you have nothing planned this weekend then pop on over to The Challenge Chics where I will be hosting this weekends cybercrop from 7.30pm tonight!!

Some sharing ......

Okay, so I meant to put this up on Saturday but seriously ran out of time! I was asked by Shazza Bishop if I would be the Movie Extra (guest designer) for her new challenge blog, Screen 2 Scrap.

The blog uses movie postes as inspiration for pages as well as using a few criteria. This month's challenge is from the movie "Fire Walk with Me" and the added criteria were, one photo, paper tearing and zig zags.

I have taken inspiration from the colour scheme, folded the dark burgandy paper to mimick a red velvet curtain, used a paper doily as the half heart and used lots of gold and velvety embellishments to give that decadent feel to the layout. To see the movie poster and also have a look at the other pages head on over to their blog. The challenge is open for the whole month and this months sponsor is D-lish Scraps.

Two reasons to celebrate!!

Firstly ..... Happy 100th post to me! This is oficially my 100th post since starting my blog .... even though sometimes they are few and far between! lol
And secondly ......
I awoke this morning to the news that my June Bug layout has been accepted for publication in the Basic Grey gallery!! It is a store sample that I have made to showcase the range for my LSS ... Paper Addiction. It's called "Mun and Her Girls" and you can see my layout here.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

(for yesterday) I was a very spoilt girl! For anyone that knows me you would know that I just loovvee my bracelet! It also makes it wasy for the boys to know what to get me without having to ask .... or sending me to get my own present! lol

They surprised me with these four new beads .... a little teddy, a seashell, a crab (cause I am a cancer .... look at his cute little face!) and an I Love You bead! I love you both too!

And if they weren't enough my lovely girlfriends, Corinne and Lisa, got me this gorgeous genuine Pandora bead. It's silver and 14ct gold on the starfish! I love it sooooo much and am not sure what I have done to deserve such a generous gift. I am so chuffed and grateful! I love you girls!! Mwaah!! xxxx

Derek took this snap of me and Cody just before we went to dinner last night. This was right before the "chucking" incident that almost put a premature end to our night! Yes, you heard right ... my darling little boy decided to throw up on himself 4 times as we were heading into the club! A quick trip to K-mart for a set of new clothes saved the day and we were able to continue on with our dinner plans!

He was clearly okay ..... he ran around like a mad man while I went to the shops and then pigged down about 3 platfuls of food from the buffet! That's kids for ya! hehehe

Happy 2nd Birthday Cody!!

My little boy is 2 today!! We had a small family party on Sunday to celebrate .... despite the rain and the jumping castle getting full of water (which we are still trying to dry out) ... the kids had a ball and Cody was just on the go all day!! He only had 6 hours sleep the night before and no sleep all day .... but that didn't stop him from enjoying his party! Come 5 o'clock it all came to tears .... but I kinda expected that!

We had a jungle theme for his party .... here he is blowing out the candles on his Crocodile cake!


A close up of the crocodile cake ..... it's constructed from cupcakes!!

And one of the monkey cupcakes!!

We are heading to the playcentre this morning as a special treat for his birthday .... and to fill in some time while we wait for Daddy to wake up from night shift so that we can have presents!!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!

Sorry :-( but I had to say it ...... we watched 21 on the weekend .... was a great movie, you should check it out if you haven't seen it yet.

Anyway the reason for my post is to share my good news .... my entry for the Inkurable Stampers May challenge won!! Wahoo for me!! I won a set of Darkroom Door stamps ... the flora ones and I am very excited to be getting them. As most of you know I have a small obsession with stamps so these are right up my alley!!

I have been a very slack blogger lately ... but oh so busy ..... lots of orders to fill which is good for the $$ but bad for my own scrapping time, which suffers badly. I did manage to make 2.5 layouts at a crop night last weekend but haven't had a chance to finish them let alone photograph them to share.

But I am slowly crossing the jobs off my to do list which was HUGE!! Hopefully I will get to the end of it before it grows any longer .... but if not .... such is life!! :-)

Another page and some ATC's ....

A layout for the Scrapping Word Pictures blog. It is like a blind scrap ... a list of materials and instructions are posted and then you take that and your imagination and create! THis is anther page for my mum's album. The little fella to the very right of the picture is my dad! Cute trunks! :-)

When Corinne decided on the theme for the May ATC challenge ..... Arabesque .... I am sure there were quite a few people who wanted to kill her!! lol Here is what I came up with .....

I took inspiration from the architecture and made wrought iron scroll windows with my cuttlebug. The windows really open and close!

On a sad note ..... Cody smashed my EK success glass cutting mat on the floor yesterday afternoon .... I am devistated! It took me so long to get one and I really feel lost without it .... I use it for all my handcutting .... soooo much easier than cruddy self healing mats ... YUK!!

3 New Layouts ....

Here are the two layouts I finished over the weekend and also another one that I whipped up this morning!

Dad & Me is for the monthly challenge over at A2Z Scraplets.

My entry for the Sweet Treats - Sweetie's Sketches blog is titled A Time to Celebrate ..... it is my dad's 3rd birthday party!

And last but certainly not least ... Play Time which is my entry for the Inkurable Stampers blog challenge. You always must use at least one stamp on your project and ths month's requirements were ribbon and lace.

Have a few more challenges scribbled down to have a go at before the end of the month ..... so best get back to it!

I hate bugs!!!

It was certainly not how I planned on spending my Sunday but I have cleaned and scrubbed the kitchen cupboards to within an inch of their lives!!

I discovered this morning that we had an infestation of flour beetles in our pantry. Has anyone ever had to deal with these pesky little blighters before ... they get into absolutely everything. I did a bit of googling (gotta love google) for some advice on what to do and discovered that they are really hard to get rid of. I literally had to throw all of the food in the pantry away ... about 5 garbage bags full ... such a waste! Apparantly they can even chew their way into sealed bags which is amazing considering they are only about 1-2mm in size.

I had to vaccumn out the cupboards and then scrub them out with hot soapy water before fumigating them. All the storage containers and jars went through the dishwasher ... about 9 cycles I counted and then the bottom dishdrawer started leaking!! Some dishwashing detergent got spilt in one of the containers and when I put it through the dish drawer the detergent foamed up which confused the drawer sensors and caused it to leak all over the floor!

Gotta love our new spanky wet/dry vac though ... I sucked up all the water out of the drawer to drain it and then vaccumned up the water off the floor. Phew .... crisis averted!!

Once the fumigation had settled down I was finally able to put the pantry back together .... which I can tell you is not a lot! I had to throw away nearly everthing that wasn't in a can to eliminate the chance that they may reinfest. It will take me weeks to restock all the food that was lost and very expensive!

On a good note I did manage to finish two layouts this weekend ..... I was really hoping to finish a few more but it took nearly 6 hours to sort out the kitchen! I will take some pics of the pages tomorrow and upload for you all to see.

Well I never did buy that lotto ticket .........

...... but I've had a few more wins!

I was the 20500 click winner over at Kathie's blog which was kinda cool. I am not sure exactly what is in the prize pack but I have been told that she is super generous and that her prizes are well worth winning!

I also was lucky enough to come overall 3rd place at the RSS cybercrop from last weekend which means I get a $20 prize pack. I am soooo happy about this ..... I missed out on 2nd place by one point. The competition is tough over there .... a super talented bunch of scrappers and since I only did 3 of the 9 challenges I honestly thought I wouldn't have a chance. Some people did all 9 and I seriously don't know where they find the time!

I am working on some stuff at the moment so will hopefully have work to share before the weekends out!

From Dusk till Dawn ....

... was the theme for the CC this month at Ready Set Scrap and this month I actually found the time to join in and scrap! It was an awesome CC ... lots of laughter, fun and games.

All the challenges were themed to movies. Nat's was Thelma and Louise and since she fell asleep watching the movie, the only stipulation was a B&W pic. I scrapped this pic of my Dad and his brother on their dad's motorbike.

Ann-Marie's challenge was to use the quote "A person is a person no matter how small" from the kids movie Horton Hears a Who. I love this pic of Cody ..... it was taken a few hours after his birth ..... check out the little fishy lips!

There were 9 challenges in total and no way I could get them all done so my last choice was Rach's challenge, The Little Rascals ...... scrap a pic of the kid getting up to mischief! No shortage of pics like that around here! I chose to do a digi page for this one .... kit from Suzyqscraps.

All this rainy weather is great for scrapping ..... good excuse to stay indoors. Have some monthly challenges I would like to have a go at this month so hoping to have a crack at those tomorrow.

Woohooo! I won something!!

Over at the Scrapbooking Top 50 forum there was a comp to win a double pass to the Papercrafts Convention on the June long weekend here in Brissie ........ and guess what .....

I WON!!!!
So very excited since I never win anything! All I had to do was reply with my name in the thread to go in the draw ..... how easy is that. Now the hard part will be deciding which friend to take ...... hhmmmm ..... just jokes!!
Then last night I was lucky enough to win "Pink Flamingo" over at Ready Set Scrap Cybercrop!
Wow two wins in one day ..... don't they say that things happen in three's??? Maybe I should get myself a lotto entry for tonight ..................

Busy, busy, busy!

I have been very MIA of late, keeping myself busy with a truckload of work and ventures! I always manage to bite off way more than I can chew! lol Have had a big digi job on .... banners and logos for an online store and lots of other things to keep me busy. Will see if I can bring you up to speed in one large post!

We went away for the long weekend (Labour Day hol in QLD) to the Gold Coast for a few nights. We stayed at Breakfree Savannah Resort at Broadbeach which was lovely. Buffet breakfast included every morning means I didn't have to cook for three whole days! We did some shopping and Derek got a new mobile phone (a Nokia 5800) that comes with free music for a year .... so I bet you can only guess what he has been doing.

Cody had a lovely time ..... self contained apartments are in no way child proof! so you can only imagine the fun he had! Emptying cupboards, playing in the fridge and "ordering" roomservice on the phone to name a few. On Sunday we went to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (my mum's shout) to see the animals. Cody was by far the noisest kid in the place, screaming with excitement at the top of his lungs for the most of the day. His favourite were the kangaroo's ..... he even tried to pinch a joey out of one of the mother's pouches ...... I am so surprised she didn't wallop him ..... they must be so used to human contact.

I was lucky enough to be able to take a workshop with an enormously talented and awe inspiring scrapper named Jude Harvey. (thanks Dad for minding my rugrat) Her workshop was teaching the principles of Shabby Chic and this is the layout that I created through taking the class.

The photo is a picture of my Grandma (who I never actually met, or remember meeting) on my dad's side.
And a little close up of the detail for you to look at:
It was part of the scrapbook that I gave my mum for Mother's Day ..... I am going to scrap all the old family photos and give them to her to keep in it.

On other news I have been making shop samples for my local scrap shop Paper Addiction. I have done quite a few so far and you can see some of them on their blog. I will be teaching my first class there in June so have also been busy making up sample layouts for this. I have one more to finish off by the end of this week and then they will be displayed instore till the class takes place.
Mothers Day was lovely! I was spoilt with two new beads for my bracelet. I don't have pics to share but one was a silver butterfly with a pink stone centre and the other a silver flower with a blue stone centre. We had afternoon tea in the park with the family and the kids got to have a play as well .... it was a lovely day in all. I was so exhausted I fell asleep at 7.30 and didn't even bother with dinner.
Anyway I think that's enough for now and will help catch you up during my absence. Gotta run as I have an $80 order for some of my handmade flowers to get ready for posting!

Hop to It Cybercrop!

This weekend we are having our April cybercrop over at Uproar ...... the theme is Hop to It! It's our way of celebrating Easter but not in the exact way you would expect!!

My challenge is inspired by chocolate .... yum!! But not the kind you eat!! It's a colour challenge ... you may use the colours of milk, dark and white chocolate and one other if you choose. Here is my sample page ..... the pic is of my dad and his brother about 60 years ago.

This page was for Lisa's challenge. Her challenge was based on "traditions" and you had to use the word somewhere on your page. It didn't have to be about Easter so I made mine on our Australia Day traditions. All the scroll work you see was hand cut from a sheet of pp ..... it took hours!!

My little ATC challenge is proving to be popular too ..... I set a theme and requirements to suit the CC and people enter by making an ATC which is a one of. We all vote on our fave and the winner gets the unique set of ATC's. This month was pastel colours and it had to have a bunny or chick/bird on it. Here is mine:

And last but not least, a card for the monthly mini RAK challenge. The host sends everyone an identical pack of goodies and we each make a card from our little kit. The winner, decided by poll vote then becomes the host for the next month's challenge. Here is what I made from the kit:

More scrapping on the planner for today ..... oh and the washing ....... blaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!!

Bug Bags

This is my latest creation ......... a Bug Bag for the owner of my local scrap shop, Paper Addiction. I took in some fabric samples and these are the ones that she picked out. While I am a fan of the bright prints I do love the way that this one turned out.

I designed the bag perfectly to fit a Cuttlebug machine and all the box and dice! It has internal pockets as well as front and back on the outside to hold all of the cutting mats dies and embossing folders. If you are interested in purchasing one they are $39.95 so feel free to email me for any other questions you may have.

Some latest work to share.

Been working on challenges for the Deb's cybercrop the last few days so thought I wold share my latest creations.

This layout was for Gayatri's challenge. She challenged us to use only Kaisercraft products (except alphas) to create a layout. (I guess inspired by her recent application for the Kaiser DT) You had to use mre than one range of pp (the more the better), b&w/sepia pic & hand journalling.

I used about 5 different paper ranges I think and this is what I came up with. (Oh and the layout was also based on one of sketches)

This one was a blind challenge set by Vicki. I love blind challenges as you don't have to think too much and the pages come together really quickly ..... but only if the instructions are clear otherwise you can spend hours pushing bits of paper around! I have learnt this from previous experience! Papers here are Cosmo Cricket - Jacks World which I think really suit the page. Also used one of my Journal It's by Star word tickets and 2 Crafty chipboard.

This one was based on a sketch provided by the lovely Angie. I have used My Minds Eye Penny Lane pp's and a collections birdy. The ribbon was sent to me by my lovely friend Corinne - mwah! Love it!

This last piece of work is for the Deb's Master Blaster challenge. This is the 3rd of 6 challenges in total. You had to make a sign that Deb could hang in her shop in the colours of the forum logo. I am not sure where my crazy idea came from but I woke with this idea in my head and it just grew from there. I was at it for 4 hours straight and this is what I came up with.

The frame was made by layering strips of chipboard to raise the sides and then I covered it in bazzil embossed dot CS. The big flowers are my Handmade Flowers by Star which I have added other lace and velvet flowers to. Flourishes are from Scapcutz. The hanging butterflies were made from digital images which I printed twice and back to backed. I then set eyelets in them to hang them between wired strands of beads. While I was looking for beads I found some bells so I attached them to the bottom so that it can twinkle in the breeze. They are all hanging off a coathanger that I cut up and attached from the back of the sign.

Have a few more challenges to complete before the Cybercrop at Uproar starts tomorrow night. Theme is Hop to It and it should be a heap of fun!

Crop Night .....

Last night I went to the Pizza Crop at my lss with my BFF, I made this page for Amanda's colour challenge at Deb's for this weekends cybercrop. Lots of people were stopping to admire the page while I was putting it together ..... the experience was quite humbling .... I am not really used to so much attention towards my work.

The page is for an album I am making for my Mum for mother's day ... it's a collection of all her and dad's old family photos.

Cybercropping at Deb's this weekend!

We are having a CC at Deb's this weekend ..... it is hosted and sponsored by some or the challenge chics who were kind enough to donate their time and prizes!

This layout was from an inspiration photo of someone's scrap space. It was black, white and lime green. I was also inspired by the clean and tidy look the room had with everything in it's place hence the minimalist layout I have made. PP's are MME Just Dreamy 2 and I have also used one of my Journal It's saying tickets.

Finished off a set of ATC's this morning also. Theme was set by me and is your favourite quote. The quote reads: "Reach for the moon ...... if you fall short you will land on a star!"

This is a set I finished the other day, the theme for these was Vintage. Arrgh .... forgot to rotate .... sorry!

Heading off to the local tonight for a Pizza Crop ...... hmmmmm pizza ...... should be fun and I will finally get to catch up with my BFF.

My loss is your gain!

After a long day at work I decided to pop by the newsagent and treat myself to a new magazine. (Something I don't do very often as I never find time to actually read them) I get home and pop my feet up to read my mag only to discover after opening it that I already have it ..... a project jogged my memory .....

DT work ......

This is my DT layout for my challenge blog ...... Out of the Hat. This month's challenge is to use: A shaped layout, a non-traditional scrapping item and lace in an interesting way. I used the bazzil CS as my base and cut it out to look like clouds, I used the lace to frame my photos and my non-traditional scrapping item is the title which I have cut from the packaging of Cody's new winter PJ's.

We have had some great entries already and there are awesome prizes up for grabs ..... so check it out at Out of the Hat.

I am starting a Conga Line ......

I made this cool image and people can click along the conga line on each blog to take a fun filled scrapping journey!

Basically when you receive an invitation to join you add the image as a sidebar picture widget and then link the image to the one person who's blog you want to be next in line.


- You can only join the line if you are invited
- You can only pass it on to one person
- Lets make the longest conga line in the world!! (wouldn't it be cool if it went all over the world and back??)
- Make sure you follow through until the person you invite has added it to their blog otherwise the chain will be broken and it won't work
- If you receive an invitation and don't want to be in the line then kindly let the person know who sent it to you so they can invite someone else.

I am really excited to see where this will end up!

My invite goes to Our little Slice of Paradise - Lisa Kamphuis.

Cybercrop weekend at Uproar.

It was an awesome weekend with heaps of cool challenges and games. Everyone had sooooo much fun and the quality of work in the gallery is second to none! We went Green and Reduced, Reused and Recycled our hearts out!

This was an inspiration challenge - there was a pic put up by Lisa, and this is what I made from it. It's called Mr Damage and yes that is my DS eating my DST!!

This next layout was for my own challenge which was to use junk mail on your layout. The words "you could be this perfect" were cut from a Home Ice-Cream catalogue. I used my new Coredinations Whitewash CS that I got from Dee on Saturday night. I love it soooooo much!!! The supplier pics are crap!!! it is much nicer in real life! The colours look nothing like the images on their website.

I also threw in this extra challenge for fun. It was an ATC challenge to make one in the Go Green/Recycle theme. It had to have the colour green on it somewhere and be in the theme. I made this cute little froggie ATC ........ the winner of the challenge (voted by poll) wins all of the ATC's entered into the comp!

I have been doing quite a few other things which I hope to catch you all up on soon. I had a lovely weekend, cybercrop on Friday night, Craftfest on Saturday and then cropping at Uproar on Saturday night! I picked up my cuttlebug which I am very excited about. But alas ..... it's monday again ...... so all that means is work, work, work!
