I've Been Scrapjacked!

Yes! I've been SCRAPJACKED! Sounds like the name of a punishable crime, but no, it's rather an honour! Hehehe.........
Definition: "Scrapjack" = combination of "hijack" and "scraplift".
Scrapjack my Beauty Exists page and you can win!
Go to Aussie Scrapbooking to find out more..............

Diane, one of the scrappers who took on the challenge, kindly sent her layout to me. I think it's fabulous, and just had to share it here!

Kit LO Revealed

This is the June kit layout "Water Nymph" I designed for Scrap A While and now that all the kits are sold out I can finally show it to you...
Using Basic Grey Two Scoops paper and alpha stickers, Green Tara flowers, Bella chipboard and Kaisercraft bling - I came up with a fairly classic style, adding a bit of "me" with the freehand cardstock mat and some handwriting.

And here's what one customer did with the kit................just lovely Angie!!!

To check out July's kit click on the image at the top of the side bar.

Hope you're having a good day - and keeping warm!!!

Silly Pics!

How crazy is my little Mia in these photos!?! She's clowning around with the wonderful egg-carton and pipe-cleaner glasses we made together one lazy afternoon. The layout was for Challenge #27 from Elsie Flannigan's "52 Scrapbooking Challenges". The challenge was to "scrap those silly photos". Have a go! You know you want to! I used: Love Elsie 'Roxy" paper, Pressed Petals Hip Chip letters to trace around, black pen, white gel pen and some dobs of paint. Catch you soon and thanks for coming. xxx

Class-in-a-Box #2

Hated to disappoint this month so..........I got hold of some more papers and I now have this layout available as a Class-in-a-Box. You get cardstock, patterned paper, ricrac, paper flowers, leaves, buttons and micro-beads - also a pre-inked chipboard monogram. Let me know which letter or number you'd like (and a second choice also, just in case). Cost is $15 plus $5 postage. Just leave a comment here or email me!

Flipping Over Frames

I've gone a bit frame-crazy lately. I'll blame Pip Prosser and Elsie Flannigan! The first layout (above) was inspired by one of Elsie's Recipe Idea Cards from her fab new book. The row of buttons she uses represents a beaded necklace. Cute, don't you think! The photos are of Mimi on her 4th birthday last week - and I've used her own words for the journaling!

The next layout is created out of a Take Away Pack by Pip Prosser. These pics of the kids I took two years ago were just perfect for the pink and yellow of these Arctic Frog papers. Although the design I used is different from Pip's pack - her influence is very much apparent.

Have you checked out the cool new competition over at Scrap A While? Called "Scrapper's You've Got Talent" - it's based on the TV show. Check it out - there's some fab prizes up for grabs. And even if you don't want to enter, take the opportunity to vote for your fave!

Brrrrr.....winter has well and truly arrived at Gum Flat! It took it's time, but now it's here with a vengeance. The fire place is so full of ash, but I dare not let it go out so I can empty it. I swear it was so freezing last night, I was actually cold in bed - with a human radiator for a husband, that's very unusual for me!!!

Hope you're having a great day - thanks for popping in.....

Going Girly

I taught this layout over a week ago, and only showing you today! Rather slack I know, but been busy - went away last weekend for a wedding, and now it's school hols and you know how that goes...........anyway............ For this class we used adorable papers by Little Yellow Bicycle (love these people), and a whole heap of paper daisies and leaves from Green Tara. Added some Bella chipboard, Autumn Leaves stamps, my trademark white ricrac and a bit of sparkle and ta-da! A gorgeous simple page of sweet pretty girliness. THERE'LL BE NO CLASS-IN-BOX FOR THIS MONTH..........I'm really sorry but I couldn't get enough of the papers at the time I ordered.
