A few more

I had my March sketch layout picked up for publication, so I created another one for the Scrapping Outback forum. Really like how this one turned out too.


I also got another layout done with the March product kit for A Crafter's Passion.


I'm off to Rockhampton in the morning, so I will finally get to see the store for myself, and also meet my nephew for the first time. Hope to get a few photos of the store to share.

The embellishment pack is huge this month, there are alphas, 3 types of flowers, lace, ribbon, stamped images, chipboard, gems, plus you get a full set of project instructions designed by Me.

The kit is $25, plus the add on kit with even more is just another $6. Combine both for less shipping...you could even include the monthly challenge kit in there. There is still time to complete a layout for your chance to win a free kit.

How about some pictures of the kits.

Best Creation Mini Book Blog Hop

Welcome to our Best Creation Mini Album blog hop.

Can I just start by saying that through both the last two blog hops, I received so many wonderful kind comments from everyone. Thank you so much. I read every single one of them and I am very grateful.

Now, let's get on with it. You should have arrived here from the Best Creation blog where you will have seen the step by step instructions for creating this little album that was such a hit as CHA. Now you will travel through all our DT blogs to see lots of different variations on this little project.

I made an album with pictures from one my second little boy was just brand new. I've scrapped all this pictures before, but it was nice to go back and look at them all again. These papers are from an older collection, and I just love all the cute little animals, especially that big zebra. The pockets are made from a cut up doily.

For the pages, I used Helmar acid free adhesive, then I used Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive (my favourite) to adhere all the embellishments. I also used some Helmar Zapdots as always to lift my elements off the page, including my matted photos.



Be sure and leave a comment at the bottom of our Best Creation Blog for a chance to win a huge prize pack of goodies and 3 more chances to win if you sign up to be follower or join us on facebook! And don’t forget to leave comments along the way letting us know how you love all their designs. I would also love it if you would become a follower of this blog if you are not already.

Thanks for visiting.

New stuff to share

Have been very busy scrapping, but haven't had time to share much on here. Have plenty to show, so will try to update over a few days.

These ones are all for Scrapping Outback. All the new challenges went up on the first, and you have until the end of the month to enter and earn store credit.

First up is the sketch challenge, which was designed by me this month.


...and here's what I did with it.

Next up is the DT mini kit. This kit has Echo Park Little Boy papers which I love. I got heaps from the kit too. 2 layouts and 3 cards, and one of the layouts wasn't even a boy layout. The kits are really great value. You can purchase this kit here.

And lastly, this one is for the White with a twist challenge
