4 Layouts for the SCRAP SUITE Challenges.

Hello there,
How is your day going? It is hot and desperately dry here. Too hot to be outside, so inside it is, and what better way to pass the day then by scrapping...!! I think so!!

The last week or so I have been creating layouts for this months challenges over at the THE SCRAP SUITE which is run by D-LISH SCRAPS on Facebook..  I challenged myself to see if I could get 4 layouts completed as I have been such a slow scrapper of late... and yes, I surprised myself by getting 4 layouts done!!

Challenge #1.

To Scraplift a layout created by Amanda..
This is the layout I chose to scraplift..
And this is my layout..  with a closer view of details..


Challenge #2.

To use paint and patterns. I used 5 different patterned stamps and pink paint on my background.

Some closer views.

  Fussy cut flowers!

The stamps and pink paint I used on the background.


Challenge #3.
To use birds/butterflies/ bows. I used all 3 on my layout.

Some closer views.

 Gota love those pretty sequin bows!

Enjoying life.

Challenge #4.
To use green and include a list or lots of journalling..

I have used some fabulous green paint on the back ground and a list on the tag as well as some journalling.

some closer views.


And there are my 4 layouts.. I really need to just stick things down and stop fussing!!! hehe!!  And then I would get more layouts done!!

And incase you missed the post on facebook and on the blog... I am joining the Team over at Stuck?! Sketches and you can see the post HERE!!!!! I didnt renew my contract with Shop and Crop Scrapbooking, and then I saw the call for Stuck?! and as I had applied once before, I just thought I would try again..  what will be, will be.. and I was so excited to get the email saying I had made the team..  I am looking forward to creating with the wonderful Sketches, they are so easy to follow and I will be getting layouts done at the same time!! So that starts next month.. which isnt that far away....

Thanks for coming by, and thanks so much to those who leave lovely comments, it is so nice to know you have come by..  Have a great day!

Sneek Peeks at Octobers Kaisercraft Kit for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking.

Hi there,
As I type I am sitting in a very warm room and although it is nearly 8.30 at night, there is not a breath of air coming in the window.. I think the weather has missed the memo that it is Spring and has jumped feet first into summer..  this week is predicted to hot up even further...  Yeechs!

But... I have some sneeky peeks of a fabulous Kit for October that can be found in the shop at SHOP AND CROP SCRAPBOOKING Kit section..  You can see these sneeks over on the blog HERE!!!!

Here are a few sneeks!!

There is heaps of product in the Kit and I created two quick cards as well..

You can check out the blog post HERE!!!  This will be my last blog post for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking as my 6 month term comes to an end. What an amazing time I have had with them!

As always, thanks for your visit, the days are sooo busy, and thank you for the lovely comments you leave me too!!
Have a great day!

SCRAP THE GIRLS - September Sketch Challenge.

Hello there, how is your day going?
It is rather hot here, humm it is sposed to be Spring, and that means slowly warming up to summer, not straight into it!! ah well...

It is school holidays here so I thought while things slow down a bit I would try some challenges.. The Sketch at
SCRAP THE GIRLS grabbed my eye and I had all these ideas of lots of mixed media but ended up not using much at all!!! The sketch looks like..
I followed the sketch but in a larger format!! And my layout...

A couple of  closer views..

See! A bit of stencilling!!

You make life beautiful..

I have used the lovely Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper paper collection for this layout, the flowers were made using a Kaisercraft die. Thanks SCRAP THE GIRLS for a great sketch. it was so nice to sit and create today..

Thanks so much for your visit, I always appreciate my guests, and all the comments you leave me too! Have a great day!

Hello there,
How is your day going? The weather around here is heating up, Spring has Sprung, but I think Summer might be giving it a nudge!!

I have a blog post over at SHOP AND CROP SCRAPBOOKING where I am sharing two layouts, one of which was created from the AUGUST CROP KIT which is full of summery papers and embellishments, and also instructions on how I created my layout..

And this is my first layout..

Beach Babe.

 I also created a fun card with some leftovers too.


And the second layout shows how I use layers on my layout using some Cocoa Vanilla papers Wild At Heart Collection.

Hello Gorgeous!

Thank you so much to those who pop over,  thank you for your support.. And thanks for coming by here today, all your comments are always appreciated..

Enjoy the rest of your day..

And so with the  new month, comes the new Scrappy Challenges! And this months challenge for
KRAFT+ will have you buzzing!!! Literally!

Whats the buzz! To be inspired by our hard working little friends -
BEES! or even by this fabulous graphic (yellow, hexagons, stitching)

Well I knew about this challenge months ago, so when our tree had blossoms that was covered in busy bees, I had to go out and grab several photos for this challenge..  I just wish I could have added the loud buzzing as well to my photos!!

Lots of leaves, fussy cut flowers and honeycomb mesh!
It is a busy page, for these busy bees!!

Hexagon embossing on hexagon die cuts! The daisy's are stickers..
