Happy Days

Every scrappy day is a happy day isn't it :D
 I'm sharing a page I created for FWAB that made me put my mixed media hat on.  I followed an online class to break out of my box and try some new techniques.  It was a LOT of fun ... even if I did have to wait forever for it all to dry between steps! LOL


I love the POP that the FWAB Luke Flourish Black gives - just the right touch to this busy (for me) page.


Luke flourishes are one of my favourite FWAB product to use on boy pages :)
Don't forget the January challenge!!  It's a gorgeous colour challenge this month!
AND ...
Don't forget the FWAB store has a MASSIVE 30% off FLOWERS for all of January!!!

White With One

So, even though I'm chronically colour challenged, here I am, back again to try the White With One challenge!

This month it's:

So ... after thinking I probably don't have much in tangerine .. what do you know .. I managed to find some in the stash after all!!

And aren't I lucky that my son has a tangerine shirt in his cupboard ;)

{That's a Flutterby Designs flair}

So, thanks for visiting once again, I really appreciate it :) :)

Scrap the Girls

This month, Scrap The Girls has a fun sketch:

I played with some texture on the background and came up with this:

I'm not sure I totally "love" it, but the background is kinda fun :D ... or maybe I went a little overboard? :D

Anyway, I love Christmassy pages in non-Christmassy colours ;)
Thanks for visiting :)

SUYS January

I can't believe it's completely slipped my mind to tell you all about Show Us Your Stuff!  It now has a new owner and a new DT!  I am lucky enough to be one of them :).

Show Us Your Stuff is an Aussie scrapbooking challenge blog devoted to all things HAND MADE.  Here's a little bit about it:


At Show us Your Stuff we currently have 1 challenge per month.  On the first of each month we post the challenge for that month and the specific sponsors for that challenge.
Challenges are due to be entered before the end of the month.
Each entry must include a handmade or hand dyed item made by either yourself or someone else.
You may enter a layout, card or OTP as long as it fits the requirements of the challenge.
Find out more details HERE.

This month, we have a fun mood board to take inspiration from:

And here's the page I created using this mood board.

My handmade item is a Greatest View badge ...

Hope some of my scrappy friends can play along!  :) :)

January 123 Challenge

Hello everyone :)  I hope you are managing to fit in some scrapping already this year?  I've unpacked some of my scrapping supplies (we moved house just before Christmas!!) and have done a few pages already.   I really liked the look of the 123 challenge this month ... EVEN though orange is so NOT my favourite colour!! 

But, there's nothing like a challenge - so they say.  Plus, I knew I had the perfect kit to use:

He's Savvy Kit - November 2013 designed by Kerryn.  (There are still some available!!!!  A bargain for $24 plus postage!)

{Yep, that's a Rainbow Splendour pinwheel there :) }

I based my page loosely on a Scrapfriends sketch ... (I've been wanting to try it for ages!)

So, I did survive the orange after all! LOL

Thanks for visiting!  I'll be back soon ...

FWAB January challenge

We have a gorgeous colour challenge for you all this month over at FWAB.  The colours are soft and pretty:

I had already packed a lot of my scrapping stuff up by this stage, but I still had my washi tapes out ... and my FWAB goodies of course!  So, I came up with this:

Another quick card using washi tape and Flourish With a Bling :) ... what a winning combo :D. I've used FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish White,  FWAB Maddison Flowers - Pink and FWAB Elise Flowers - Cream

Hope you can play along this month - there's an awesome FWAB pack to win!!  Pop over to the blog and see all the details ....

Favourites of 2013

I love doing this post every year ... and reading other's posts with their favourites :)
It's interesting to look back and see what techniques I favoured and how my style has evolved over the year.

So, in a rough chronological order, here they are:

Loved breaking out of my 'box' and using a BIG title:

Non-traditional Christmas colours and funny pics:

Playing along at FWAB (before I was lucky enough to get on the DT!!):

A little bit mixed-media-ish:

A multi-pic page I actually like!:

More FWAB <3 a="" and="" by="" gorgeous="" labelle="" p="" photographics:="" pic="">

Using a Savvy kit:

Washi washi and more washi!:

Using a MAMBI card for some hidden journaling :) :

My fav mask of the year (and using another Savvy kit):

And that's my top ten favourites ... lots of washi, lots of misting/masking, lots of FWAB!!, and I'm still cutting nearly everything into banner shapes ... LOL.  I STILL can't seem to stop!!

See my 2012 favourites HERE ... and see how my style has changed .. or not! LOL  I still cluster, use lots of flowers, and cut banners.... so some things haven't changed :D :D

If you have blogged your favourite pages, leave me a link in the comments and I'll check them out!
Thanks for visiting!!
