New Kaiser Collections

Hey everyone!

I didn't think I would be back so quick but I just wanted to share a couple of layouts I have done.

These two are from the new Kaiser paper lines "Perriwinkle" and "Butterfly Kisses"

This one here I'm entering into this weeks challenge over at the Feeling Sketchy challenge blog. Usually I enter my cards but this week it was for a layout so I thought I would give it a go


I love the colours in this next layout.  Just so soft and even tho they tend to sway toward the vintage style I was pleased that I was able to use some pics of the kids.

Now I'm off to enjoy some beautiful weather we are expected to have over this long weekend!

Busy Busy Busy!

Hello friends!

Wow!  I have to say that the last few weeks have absolutely flown and we now find ourselves right into spring.  How did that happen so fast?  That also means school holidays are here again.  Yippeee!  I love holidays.  Love not having to worry about getting kids to school and love having no routine.  Plus it gives me some more time to do what I love so thats always good.

I have been super busy lately creating cards for my classes.  With Christmas just around the corner I thought I would make some Christmas cards.  Kaiser also came out with their new Christmas range so it was all perfect timing.  Love how bright and colourful these one turned out!

Also decided to go down the traditional line too. 

These papers were lovely to play with and the images on them are truly beautiful.

One more card to share.  One of my friends has had her second baby this week.  Another little girl.  Congratulations Cara and Trev!!  Had to make a card to celebrate the occasion.  Tho I just notice the little pearls at the bottom need fixing!!

Finally after pumping out cards for a few weeks I finally managed to get my scrap on.  Kaiser released a new paper line this week called Butterfly Kisses.  When I first saw it I really wasnt sold on it.  I'm not a real lover of orange but I love the other colours in it.  Anyway, I grabbed some soon as it came in and went home that night to have a play.  Was really pleased with how this turned out.  Think it might have something to do with the photos.  How cute is that little girl?  She is now turning 10 soon.  My how time flies :(

Wow!  Sorry for the long post!  Thanks so much for dropping by and enjoy your weekend!

Explosion box

Hello friends!

Hope you are all well and enjoying life!

I have been wanting to do this project for a while now and finally last week I had a whole day to myself to sit and create away!

It is an explosion box.  I have seen some of the on youtube but have put a little twist on it.

This is the box all closed up.

And when its opened ......  Wallaaahhh!

I love interactive stuff and I wanted to take it one step further so I added a couple of pockets and flip out pages.

Its a little hard to see on the pics.  Unfortunately my love of scrapping hasn't help my photography skills!  This was so much fun to make.  I'm going to be teaching this as a class.

Also want to share my card for this weeks Feeling Sketchy challenge.  I really look forward to the new challenge set every week.  Really gets the brain starting to flow!

I have coloured her with my Prisma pencils.  I am loving them at the moment and was lucky enough to score a set on the Garage Sale site on Facebook for the bargain price of $80 for a big tin! Wahhhoooo love a bargain!  Not having a lot of luck with my Copics that I bought but I am going to persevere with them.

I have a date tonight with not one but two wonderful men!  My hubby and eldest son are taking me out for tea to the best place in Perth to have garlic prawns before we head to the theatre to watch the two youngest children perform in a school production.  Off to get my glam on!

Thanks for hanging around.  It was a bit of a long post!

Sunny Days

Hey everyone!  Thanks for stopping by. 

The weather here is just beautiful at the moment.  We have had a week of sunny spring days.  I have spent the morning outside weeding in the garden and enjoying some sunshine.

Just wanted to share my card that I am entering into this weeks Feeling Sketchy challenge.

What a cute little stamp this is.  I have coloured her with my prisma pencils.  I am really enjoying using my pencils at the moment tho I did jump in this week and went and purchased my first lot of Copics.  Must say I am really struggling to get them to work for me but I will persevere with them.  I have bought so many colours I think I may need to sell a kidney to pay for them!  LOL.

This month is also my last  month designing for Mad About Scrappin.  This was the first time I have been on a design team.  I have had a fantastic time and met some incredibly lovely and very talented ladies.  It has made me step out of my comfort zone and really stretch myself.  So thank you Leanne for the wonderful opportunity!

Here are a couple of my last design team layouts.

I was really pleased with how this turned out.  I alway struggle with boy stuff but this came together really well.  The chevron pattern up the top I created by using my Stampin Up photo corner punch.  I thought that was pretty neat :)

This next one is quite simple and clean but still pleased with the end result.

Thanks again for stopping by.  Will pop back a little later with some more to share.
