Spring Clean..

Hi there!

Today I am sharing my 4th layout of the 4 I created with the Scrappy Canary Memorandum Scrapbook Kit!

'Spring Clean'

When I saw the bright colours in this kit...I knew exactly what photo I wanted to scrap.....I knew this photo with my sons floor rug in would go perfectly with my paper choice... 

 I chose vertical designed papers to replicate the floor rug in my photo....I strategically chose stickers that went well with my cleaning theme so it portrayed a sense of achievement!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today...there are still some Scrappy Canary November Kits left but be quick if you would like one....go to the store here to get yours!!

'Just Believe' Christmas Cards

Hi there everyone!

I hope you are all getting organised for Christmas? I am very happy to say I am just about ready thank goodness!

One of the traditions that I like to keep at Christmas time is making some of my own Christmas Cards for some of my close family..

I went looking through my stash of Christmas collections and stumbled across this beautiful one by Kaisercraft called 'Just Believe'.... I knew that the co-ordinating papers and embellishments would be perfect for some handmade cards!
Just Believe Christmas Cards

When I create cards, I like to create them with different orientations, here I have created two that open from right to left and the other one opens from bottom to top. I like the challenge of decorating the different size and oriented cards..

It is so much easier to create cards if you are using products from the one takes a lot of the guess work away from you especially if you are limited for time and a lot of us are at this time of year!
Do you create your own Christmas cards? I would love to know if  any of you have created Christmas Cards using non-traditional colours! I am certainly not that game and don't have that much time but I love the look of them!

I hope you are getting some to create in between getting organised for the festive season!

Have a great day...thanks for visiting my blog today!

An Addict....

Hi there!

I am here today to share this layout with you that I created using the beautiful Scrappy Canary 'Memorandum' Scrapbook Kit...and I wanted to let you know just how much is packed into these kits, they are truly amazing value! 
This is one of 4, yes 4 layouts I created with this kit alone and I still have leftovers to create probably another layout or 2 or 3 cards!

My eldest son, like many other children is absolutely addicted to Minecraft...when he isn't playing it, he is watching other people play it on YouTube!! It does my head in actually so I have been putting restrictions on the amount of screen time he has of late...

I wanted to document this memory so that we won't forget it in years to come...above I included a piece of Minecraft toy packaging to fit in with my theme...  

The stickers and wood shapes are great to layer together for great dimension! 

So that's all from me sure to stop by again to see the other 3 layouts using this one kit that I have to share with you...

Thanks for stopping by my blog sure to check out the Scrappy Canary shop for some great bargains....until Sunday midnight you can get 30% off most items using the Discount Code 'Black'....hurry before its all gone!

Have a great day....

Hi all!!

I hope all my American friends across the pond had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Today I am here to share my Creative Team layout for the Creative Scrappers reveal of sketch #283!

Here is the awesome sketch!

When I saw this sketch, I knew straight away that I wanted to cut my background with my Silhouette Cameo... I kept some of the cut out triangles to fit back in where they had been cut!  

Using some of the gorgeous 'Favorite Things' collection by Heidi Swapp, I backed the left over windows with patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad..I love how it gives a slight pinwheel look to the background...

I also added lots of ephemera from the same range and a few bits of wood veneer for another texture! I typed some journalling with my typewriter and included it on my layout as well....
The prize is a $20 Gift Certificate to the 17turtles Shop!
To Win the December Prize from 17Turtles

My Super Power....

Hi there everyone!!

I am here with you today to share a layout 
that I created recently using some of the awesome cut files available at The Cut Shoppe

The files I used on this layout are:

I found it difficult to work with a collection that suited the theme of my layout, so I opted to keep it simple and used no patterned paper at all. 
All the colour you see here was created using a bitty bag, washi tape, journal spots, a peg and mist! 

'My Super Power'

I decided to cut the cut files in black for impact against the white adding subtle colour here and there I feel it doesn't overcrowd my layout...

One of my favourite backgrounds is the Tangled Web cut file and I must be honest and say I  did cut it in 12 x 12 but I was a little intimidated by it so I ended up cutting it up into pieces for a more random web look...

Thank you so much for stopping by my today....have a great day!

Just Go Explore....

Hi there!

Today I wanted to share a layout with you using the gorgeous Scrappy Canary 'Wild Roses' scrapbook kit....

'Just Go Explore'

I chose to use the Bo Bunny Double Dot Chevron paper for my background paper...I then layered with other papers and embellishments all found in this jam packed 'Wild Roses' Scrapbook kit...

As soon as I started pulling things from the kit I knew that I wanted to scrap a photo of Dubrovnik, Croatia from my trip to Europe last year! The kits are so versatile in that you can scrap just about any theme and there will be something included in the kits to suit! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today...have you got your kits yet? If not you can head to the Scrappy Canary store here for a wide selection of different kits to choose from!
