Post it notes

Have you ever thought... hmm paper would be good right now!
I quite often write on my hands as i dont have paper handy, other than unprofessional.. its a bit gross!
I came acros this tutorial last night which is so simple, and it makes a cute little cover for a pad of post its. Ok its a bit gimicky but imagine the mess if you just chucked post it's in your bag. I think i may need to pop a little closure on it somehow.

Birthday Book

Im going to a party for a wonderful friends daughter next week, she is turning a massive ONE year old!
I made her a little guest book to commemorate the day, we can all sign it.. and when she is 21 she can laugh at us all saying look at how old you all are now!

Universal Studio, Animal Actors

I just did this last one prior to heading for bed. There is something to be said for sleeping in till midday then staying up late to scrap! Its so quiet! i do have to work tomorrow though so bedtime it is.
I did a whole heap of lettering on this but it took the focus off the pictures. I have simple used white gel pen to journal the event instead of masses of lettering!
Im loving the film strip that i cut on the pazzles!
incase your wondering about some mounts being rounded and others not, i used the cut outs from the film strip as mounts (waste not want not), they were rounded... so i left them as is!

night night

I think this rates as one of my favourites

When i first saw this Kaszazz workshop (on the website) I didnt like it, but once i got the stamps and saw them stamped out.. i fell in love!
This rates as one of my favourites!
Im currently searching my craft room for a missing dragonfly... Its meant to be mounted on the large ivory piece giving it a 3d effect! I think i may need to restamp it, Oops! Oh and i just remembered the bling!
the bling is on each dragonfly and just under the three dragonflies (small)... now it looks finished.
im a happy girl tonight I really am loving craft at the moment

More xmas layouts

I have more xmas eve photos to scrap from our 2008/09 holiday to canada, Big White. So i repeated the recent red and white layout in antique colourings for these pages. Im not sure that copper is the right choice for the embossing but its Ok.
I have to do some wording for under the main photo.
It makes me want to get back to canada, really soon every time i look at the photos. HoHum!

I won a prize!

I dont normally enter "blog candy" giveaways on sites, as i dont feel my work is good enough. But i stumbled across a giveaway that only required me commenting on the blog and linking to it, now lets face it, it cant get much easier than that. Add to this that the blog was lovely and right up my alley!
Anyway I won... the link is in the side bar for Sarah Paris, check out her site. I will post some photos of what i make with the prize once i get busy.
Here is my prize, a digital download to use for my card making!

Puppy Love

Im smiling. Ive had my Pazzles machine for a year now (i got it at last years stitches and craft).. and Ive not used it to any great extent. Well guess what, someone suggested i get a brayer to help me with the paper lifting off the cutting mat issue.. and WALLAH every single cut has been perfect. I cleaned the machine today, it was all gunked up with adhesive.

This layout is of my puppy, Izzy Beautiful. I think the layout could do with one more photo but i havnet got any more to put on it. I was going to put the wording Izzy down the inner side of the right page but i changed my mind. I will leave it as it is for now. I have 400 photos to scrap .. this basic layout will do!


Christmas Layout

I have wanted to do this layout from Kaszazz for weeks now, i have had the stamps for ages and the papers and just havent got my act together. Well this afternoon i cleaned out the craft room (formally known as the sewing room) and off i went.
if i taught this workshop i think i would use red ribbon the whole way through, im not a fan of the white rik rac. there is an option to put a bow on the bauble but rik rak and bows just dont mix!!

i hope you like it, let me know what you think!


i just got home from craft camp, we spent two nights at Merroo in Kurmond NSW (near kurrajoing) with great people, fantastic and creative crafters, and and good friends. A lovely time was had and much laughter was occuring,, especially in my room at 2am ... (oops)

I have posted some photos of some of the things we did, the christmas page is a bit blurry sorry about that.

dont you love the butterfly stamp, that was a generous freebie donated to us at camp! I love it and i love the technique we did with it, with acetate..

Im very keen to go again next year but im waiting "oh very patiently" for the girls that went with me to tell me if they are going again.. i also have a friend that wanted to come this year but had to drop out wanting to come.. fingers crossed!

oH i won a prize on the pages that have the flowers and the "unconditional love" heading on it... thats special to me as i spent a lot of time thinking about my grandfather while i coloured each of those flowers. I'm yet to finish the layout, so it came second even though it wasnt finished.. it needs some journally and something dark on it..its a bit too busy and light for me at the moment.

the oh la la book was made on friday night with sheree (my roomy) she made two of them like a mad woman.. and matching cards and beautiful gift envelopes to go with it all.

my craft room looks like a bomb site but i have a slow organisation plan in place... it wont take long to get it right.

keep checking out this blog its going to be updated much more regularly!
