Feeling Sketchy Challenge

Just a quick post today, sharing my entry into this weeks challenge at Feeling Sketchy.

It was actually a sketch for a layout but I changed it to a card.  Might have a go at a layout tho later in the week if I can find some time.

Enjoy your day friends!

Busy days

Hey friends.  Wow the week has just flown by again.  Life just seems to get faster and faster.  I can't believe we are now nearing the end of winter. 

I have just a couple of layouts to share today.  These layouts I have designed for my friends new online business selling kits.  It is still in the early stages but very excited about it.

These papers are the new Little Bo Peep paper line from Crate Paper.  Oh my, I had so much trouble cutting them.  They are just so pretty. It took me all day just to make the first cut.  I just wanted to sit and look at them!  Anyway these are the two layouts.


I have also scrapped this years school photos!  That is in itself a miracle!  I usually leave them hanging around but this year I got straight on to it.  Still have HEAPS of the last few years to do tho.

These papers were from the Kassaz catalogue.  Plain, but I think enough for school pics.

Just before I sign off I just wanted to share a pic of my two youngest ones.  This week and last week is Book Week at school.  They had to go dressed at a character from a book.  Tameeka decided on Red Riding Hood and Joshua decided on Where's Wally.  Big thank you to my wonderful mum who made Tam's costume and my dear friend Sharon who came to my rescue with Joshua's get up.  They looked fantastic.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy scrapping!

Card Crazy!

Hey everyone!

Thanks for stopping by my little piece of cyberspace:)

This week has seen me on a card making frenzy!  I have had a lovely time colouring some of my favourite little images.  Here's my results.

I had a blast making these!  Those little Tilda's are just the sweetest images and so much fun to colour.

It's also been a few weeks since I had a go at the Feeling Sketchy challenge so seeing as I was on a roll I decided to jump in and have a go at this weeks challenge.

Heres my entry.

Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Hey beautiful people!

Hope the weekend is treating you all well.  Its a little bit wet here today so I thought I would make the most of it and spend some time making some cards.  I was lucky enough to go to a craft fair last week with my beautiful friend.  Was a little dissapointed with what was there but someone how managed to go way over budget again!  I got some lovely new Magnolia stamps and some of the Wee stamps too.  So I have been busy getting inky and colouring my images.  Hoping to make some cards this afternoon.

I have a few layouts to share today.  The first is for the current challenge over at Mad About Scrappin.  Another from the amazing talents of Miss Emma Stafrace.

Here is the sketch:

Here is what I came up with

Have been having a play with the new Attitude papers from Kaisercraft too this week. I was pleased with how this turned out.  I really like the grungy look but I struggle to do it.  My work always seem so clean and square.  Oh well I spose thats just my style :)

My classes from home are going really well, especially my card classes.  I am truly enjoying this little venture.  I am in now way a professional.  I just love paper and really enjoy showing people what I have learned along the way.  It is a real buzz especially when I teach the new ladies that haven't done any kind of paper craft.  To see them go home totally thrilled with what they have made is a fantastic feeling.  I remember that feeling when I was just starting out.

These are some cards that I am teaching in the next couple of weeks for Fathers Day.  Love the way these cards turned out!

On another note, my gorgeous niece is turning 16 next year so I thought I really should get busy and make her an album.  She is my only niece and I love her to bits!  This is the first page I have done.

Thanks for sticking around.  It turned out to be a bit of a long post!  Enjoy whats left of your weekend!
