Kraft Plus - January

Happy New Year Everyone! Feel like some coffee this morning? Kraft Plus are having a coffee inspired challenge this month. As I don’t drink coffee, I chose to use some photos of my daughter drinking a babycino. She thought she was so grown up drinking ‘a coffee’! ☕️ 

Some close ups of my layout.

D-lish scraps - December Inspiration Board

This is my take on the D-lish Scraps December Inspiration Mood Board. I am enjoying using my Dylusions paints for my backgrounds at the moment as it is easy to match colours with the layouts. This photo was taken at Wet ‘n’ Wild a couple of years ago and ironically it wasn’t in Summer, but the weather was warm enough to feel like Summer! 😁

Kraft Plus December

For the December Kraft Plus Challenge I chose this photo of my eldest when she was just three months old as it matched the colours in the photo for the inspiration for this month’s challenge. I took inspiration from the two rugs in the photo, the stripes in the first rug and the blue in the second rug.

D-lish scraps - Hello sugar

This is my layout for the D-lish Scraps November Inspiration Board - ‘Hello Sugar’. I love the JAP kits and with this one, I decided to get out my new Dylusions paint and have a play at doing a mixed media background. I am pretty happy with the way it it turned out. Thanks for looking. :)

Kraft Plus - Think BIG

I initially had another idea for this layout, but when I received my November Uniquely Creative kit and saw the large circle die cut, my new layout idea was born! I have finally been able to use the Cocoa Vanilla - Wild at heart papers too which I love. 💕 The photo is of my niece and daughter at the Werribee Zoo. It is hard to catch a good photo of the two of them, but I think this one is pretty cute.

D-lish scraps October Inspiration Board

This month's mood board was a 'boy' theme and having two girls it was a bit more challenging to get started. I decided to use the sketch for my inspiration and I ended up changing my photo several times! I got to use my new Dylusion paint for my background and I really like the way it has turned out. 🎨

Kraft Plus - I can see clearly now

The October challenge for Kraft Plus is to add something clear to the page. I have added some project life overlays both under my photo and I cut 'the beauty of every day' out and put it on the photo. I also had some glass domes left over from the Uniquely Creative March kit, and a Heidi Swapp word, Smile. A great challenge! 

If you would like to have a go at the challenge you can find it here:

Stuck ?! Sketches

This is my entry for the September 15th Stuck ?! Sketches Challenge. I usually take sketches quite literally, but I added a little bit of mixed media to the background of this page and couldn't decide on a title, so I left it off! 

Here is the sketch. 

Thanks for visiting!

Over the rainbow

This is my entry for the Over the rainbow - September Inspiration Board for D-lish Scraps. I know this technique using sprays isn't new, but I actually haven't done it before with rainbow colours. 🌈 Loved using my September D-lish Just add paper kit, it makes it so quick and easy to create  a layout. :)

Thanks for looking.

What's the Buzz?

Kraft Plus - September
When Sandra Wallace from Kraft Plus asked me to be Guest Designer for September, I was very excited and a bit nervous too! I found the perfect photo of my daughter when she was four weeks old with a little bee on her jumpsuit to create my layout.

Here is a couple of close ups of the cute bee charms that were in the July Uniquely Creative Kit which I surprisingly won from the Kraft plus June challenge. 

This is the link for the challenge if you are interested in having a go.

Welcome to my scrapbooking blog!

Well here goes, my first blog entry! This layout was for a D-lish challenge - something you do for fun. These photos were from my second ever scrapbooking retreat back when that was the only time I got a chance to get some scrapbooking done!

Funky flair studio - March

I have used some of the Indigo Blue kit and two gorgeous flairs on my page this month. The photo is of my youngest after having a blue froz...
