Feeling Sketchy Challenge

Hey everyone!

Just a very quick post today.  I have been following a blog called Feeling Sketchy for a little while now.  They have challenges every week.  This week I decided to jump in and have a go.  This is the sketch that we had to go from.  It could be a scrap page or a card.  I decided to go with a card.

F-Sketchy Scrapbook 2

And this is what I came up with

I used my new Martha Stewart punch, the stamp is a Whismy stamp and some Kaisercraft paper.  If you get a chance you should check out this little challenge site.  Here's the link for you.

I'm off now to teach another scrap class this morning.  Enjoy your day and thanks for dropping by!

Mad About Scrappin - DT Kits

Hey everyone

Well I certainly went into panic mode when I received this months DT pack from Mad About Scrappin.  These were colours that I just would never choose to play with.  Thats the thing with DT work.  You can be guaranteed of receiving some gorgeous products then you really have to put your thinking caps on!  Anyway I was pleased with how they came out.  This paper line is Life Documented and can be found over at as of tonight for their Flog It Friday Sale.

These kits are fantastic value and make scrappin so easy when its all co-ordinated for you.  This is the other layout I came up with.

You will even have a few scraps left over to use for your cards too.

Thanks for popping by!

Fun Times

Hey there friends.

Wow!  What a day!  Have just come home from the Perth Craft and Quilt Fair in the city.  Had a lovely time looking at all those yummy craft supplies.  We don't get too many fairs here so its nice to get out and enjoy them when we do!

I always say I'm not going to spend too much money but oh dear -  I never manage to come out with money left over.  I did get some lovely stamps so can't wait to ink them up and have a play and of course no craft show is complete for me without some new Martha Stewart punches :)

I was lucky enough to get a few spare hours the other afternoon and made these vintage cards.


Love how they turned out.  These are Kaisercraft papers. Sooo nice!  Loving the their papers at the moment.  They are getting better and better.

Also finished this layout too.  Im entering this into the WOW (Words Or Whatever) challenge.  Check out their blog for details.

Thanks for popping by.  I'm off for a hot cuppa and to put my feet up.  Im exhausted!  Take care!

Hey everyone,  thanks for popping in!

I have a card to share with you all today.  This gorgeous image is a digi image from Funky Kits.  Isn't she just divine.  I have coloured her with my prisma colours. This is for a very special friend.  When she seen the image she fell in love with it so I had to make it for her.  Hope she likes it!

I also have one other project to share.  I completely forgot about posting this on my blog. I found it on a german blog somewhere and thought I would have a go at translating it and putting it together.  This is what i came up with

I was really please with how this turned out.  The hardest part was translating it!

Well Im off to make up my kits for classes.  I have 3 classes this week and 3 new ladies starting.  I love meeting new people and passing on my love of all things paper!

Have a great day!

Happy Mother's Day

Just wanted to pop by and wish all those wonderful mums out there a Happy Mother's Day!  Make sure you let you mum know how much she means to you.  Mums really are the glue that holds the family together so whatever you are doing today be sure to enjoy it!

Thought I would share a card I have made for my mum for Mother's Day. I recently got myself some new prisma pencils and am loving them!  I usually use the distress ink for colouring but thought I would try something different.

I also did the inside this time but I forgot to take a pic before I wrote in it.  I was really please with how it turned out.  These Sugar Nelly digi images are just gorgeous.

This is some of my other colouring I have been doing lately with my prisma pencils.

I have just have one more thing that I wanted to share.  I made a book/card.  I have been wanting to make one of these for ages so when I found a tutorial in the latest Magnolia magazine I just had to give it a go.  So pleased with how this turned out.  Im going to run it as a class so if anybody is interested just let me know.

Enough of me rambling on!  Im going to spend the day with my wonderful mum and family.  Enjoy your day whatever it is you are doing!

Mad About Scrapping Challenge

Well we are now well and truly into another month and its time for a new challenge over at Mad About Scrappin.

This month is another sketch from the super dooper Em Stafrace.  Man that girl is amazing! This is what I came up with.

This layout is a bit of a tribute to my bestest friend in the whole wide world.  She is leaving to live in the UK at the end of the year :( 

If you have some time, pop over to Mad About Scrappin on Facebook and have a go at the challenge.  Some great prizes up for grabs.

I have some more Design Team projects to share too.  It has only been the last few months that I have tested the waters and tried out for DT work and to be honest as much fun as it is, it still scares the pants off me when I get my goodies in the post!  You dont always know what you are going to get and some things you look at and think what am I ever going to do with that or they are just not my colours. I really want to do justice to all the gorgeous supplies!   Having said that it has been such a buzz to be able to step out of my comfort zone and really stretch my thinking. 

These layouts are for Scrapelegance Scrapbook Supplies.  Tenisha does a fantastic job making all these super cute buttons (something I thought I would never use) but love how they can really make a page pop!  Lots of other great bargains in store too so pop over and have a look

Will try and pop back over the weekend with some more to share.  And to all those mums out there, have a beautiful Mother's Day!  Maybe if your lucky they may just let you have some me time and scrap away!  Wouldn't that be a treat?

Thanks for popping by.
