Love love love

Hi everyone!  Popping in to share my last FWAB creation for the year:

I love the pops of colour with the black and white background.
I have used a FWAB Adam Large Vine - cut up to suit my cluster, a FWAB Maddison Flower - Baby Blue, 2 FWAB Elise Flowers - Black and a FWAB Elise Flowers - Cream

This was my first creation using the Adam vine and I'm totally in love with it!!!  I'll be using it again for sure!!  It certainly adds that WOW factor to the page!

That's all for now, happy scrapping!

Quick FWAB cards

Hi everyone!
Do you like making cards?  I love it!  However, my cards are not masterpieces, they are normally quick and easy and using bits and pieces on my scrap table - often left overs from a page I've created previously.
I had this idea in my head and knew it would be PERFECT with a FWAB Grace flourish:
I used a FWAB Grace Pearl Flourish in Plum and a flower from the Silver Elise Flourish and flower set.  The background is just strips of washi tape.  So easy!!  It's the FWAB that adds
just the right touch!
Another card with washi tape background, this time a baby shower card:
I have used my Adhesive Pearls in Teal, Mango, Olive Green, and Rose Pink to brighten up the thickers.
Just love that with a few basic supplies and some FWAB goodies, I can whip up cute cards in no time at all :) :)

B'day stash

Recently, my daughter had a birthday ... you might remember the birthday hat and badge I made for her?  Anyway, of course, I have heaps of photos from her party and from her actual birthday ... so time to start scrapping some :D ...
This was a perfect page to use some of my gorgeous lilac Maddison flowers  ... and don't they coordinate perfectly with the FWAB Elise Flourish Silver along with the Dusky Pink flower!
And you'll also see some scattered FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Purple .  These are perfect to add to Thickers!
That's all from me for now - have a great day!
Happy Scrapping!

Vintage FWAB

I don't do "vintage" very often.  I like my bright colours too much!  but, I was experimenting with this background and found it just really lent itself to these colours.   I'm sort of happy with the outcome...

I just ADORE this photo of my little boy ... it would have to be one of my favourites :) (photo by LaBelle Photographie)

I have used a selection of the new FWAB flowers ...Maddison Flowers in black and chocolate, and Elise in white, as well as the 2 flowers (and the flourish) from the FWAB Elise Flourish Antique Brown - Latte & Brown flowers.

You'll also see a Jack Vine in Olive Green, cut up to fit around my cluster :).

So, there you go, I think I just MIGHT be able to 'do' vintage!! :D :D
Thanks for visiting!

October She's Savvy kit

Hi everyone!  I received my October She's Savvy kit in the mail yesterday and was immediately inspired!!!!  Totally loving the colours and love the huge amount of embellies in this one.  I'm a big embellie scrapper, so this really helps me :)

Here's the kit:
Oct She's Savvy1
Here's the first page I created:
These colours are so versatile - and whilst the kit is a little bit 'summery' ... you'll see that it's certainly not limited to summer photos - in fact, I haven't used a summery pic yet in the 3 pages I've done so far!
Loving the vellum polaroid frames too!!  And the Prima flowers are pretty cool :D
My second page:
As you can see, I just loved that chevron paper ... cutting it up to spread it out over a couple of pages :D ... there's still a little bit left too!
You might have spied the Flutterby flairs too?  Aren't they just adorable?!?!!?
I have another page from this kit to share ... but you'll have to wait because it's my take on the November BIG Savvy sketch challenge :) :)
Don't forget to pop over to the Savvy store and check out the kits!!!  You won't be disappointed with this stunning Girl Themed Kit full of a mix of coordinating products based around the brand new Crate Paper The Pier papers with a little bit of MME Cut & Paste & Lily Bee Design plus a super variety of different embellishments to suit!  You will receive over $34 value in your kit for the Savvy price of only $30.

Birthday Time

Hello everyone!  Well, we have lots of birthdays around this time of year and last month we had a combined party for our kids.  Miss 7 had a RAINBOW themed party and I had lots of fun making a few different party things for her - and of course, adding some rainbow coloured FWAB!  Here she is with my FWAB creations:

First up was the party hat.  This was my first time making one from scratch and I was quite surprised how EASY it was!!
I found a party hat template like this one (there are HEAPS if you google them!), printed it out and traced around it onto some bright rainbow coloured paper ...
It was easy to make up, I didn't even have to glue it!
Then ... time to decorate!
I used nearly every colour in my stash of Adhesive Pearls 100 packs  on here... they were just perfect for layering over the "7" thicker and for around the circle.
I also made a "7" badge for her to wear proudly on the day:
Again, I used my stash of Adhesive Pearls 100 packs to make the "7" thicker nice and colourful.

Talking about BIRTHDAYS, we are excited to have TWO new additions in our extended family over the coming months!!  Even though I won't know ahead of time whether they will be boys or girls, I still thought I would make up some cards in preparation of our new arrivals.  Such an exciting time!!

This boy one is using the Jasmine puffy flourish in Latte  and a gorgeous cream Elise flower.
And a girl card:
That's all from me for now!  Thanks for visiting!
Happy Scrapping :) :)

October 123

Hello everyone! 

I'm here to share a page I created for the 123 challenge this month.  I'm getting right back into some challenges as you can see ... it feels great too :)

Here's the challenge:

And my take:

My big girl meeting her new baby cousin for the first time :) ... she loves him sooooo much!!!

I used my She's Savvy kit for this page - I remembered there was that yellow paper and just knew I wanted to use it for this challenge!!  All I've added is a flower from my stash and another alpha to make 3 different alphas.

If you want one of these kits ... there's only TWO LEFT!!!  Be quick!! :D :D find them HERE.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week :-)

White With 1

Hello everyone!  Now, you might remember me playing along with WW1 last month ... and yep - I'm still colour challenged!!  But, with some scrappy friends twisting my arm, I played along this month too :D ...
So, this month's challenge at White With 1 is:

Watermelon!  Perfect for spring don't you think?

Off I went on a watermelon hunt ... through the cupboard and boxes ... and I managed to find some that {perhaps} were a little not quite ripe {LOL} .. hmmm ... what do you think? 

It was fun anyway, which is the main thing :D
Thanks for visiting and any comments you leave, I really appreciate it.  I know that life is busy for you all.
