This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Recipe Book - FabScraps Country Kitchen Collection

Hello Everyone

I have a tutorial up on the FabScraps blog for a recipe book that I created for FabScraps.  I used the gorgeous Country Kitchen Collection.

This post is graphic be warned! ;-) Let's start with the cover.

I used acrylic paints and some papers and also embossed the platter and the chefs hat.

Then come the rest of the pages.  I love the French Country feel to this collection and so this is what I also brought to the recipe book.  I kept it shabby and little rustic, by using lots and lots of white acrylic paint.

What would a Denise project be without lots of fussy cutting!!!! ;-)

This is one of my favourite patterned papers becuase of the sunflowers.  Aren't they just gorgeous!!!!

This crate paper is just so super! ;-)

You might think that the white washing is a little rustic and it is! LOL...It was intentional and adds to the French Country feel.

I really enjoyed creating this recipe book and it actually came together quite easily.
I certainly plan to use it and add recipes galore! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super weekend!

Happy Birthday Card - BoBunny Lemonade Stand Collection

Hello Everyone

I hope that you had a good weekend and that Monday was a good one.

Joe went to a friend's Birthday party last week and so I made a bright and sunny Birthday card for the 8yr old.

Sometimes easy and simple does the trick.

I thought that framing the butterflies was a really neat idea! ;-)

I used the bright and gorgeous Lemonade Stand Collection from BoBunny. Perfect for little girls! ;-)
I also used my Penny Black stamps and just love this Birthday collection.  It was one of the best word stamp sets I have ever bought.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a super Monday

Large Tags - BoBunny

Hello Everyone

I have some large tags to share with you today, using some gorgeous BoBunny collections.

The first one is using the gorgeous Juliet Collection.  This is just such a pretty and romantic collection.

And here's a closer look...

I love these delicate, laser cut chippies....they are just fabulous!

For the second tag I used the super Penny Emporium collection.

I love the steampunk feel to this collection.

One can never have too many tags on hand, for that gift or friend...having them already made sure makes my life a lot easier! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you have a super Sunday!

Sprinkles and Smiles - Prima BAP September / Scrap Around the World September Challenge

Hello Everyone

Thursday was a Public Holiday and then I had yesterday off too, so it has been really nice to wind down a little and just spend time with my son and spend time doing things around the house.

I did, however, finish a page for the Prima BAP and the Scrap Around the World Mood Board.


I loved the sentiment of the mood board and the beautiful colours, so that was the inspiration for my page.

Those of you that follow my blog might also have noticed that I have not been as active blog wise, as I was before and I think the sentiment of this mood board has a lot to do with that.  I have felt the need to balance more of my time, so that more is spent with the family and with my home, rather than sitting behind the PC. So when I do actually sit down in my craft room, it is to create, rather than do the PC thing! :-)

Anyways, so here is the page I made.

It's been a while since I created a page about myself...and this photo was taken quite a few years back.  It was actually taken at our engagement party...seems like a life time ago! ;-)

I used the gorgeous Garden Fable Collection and did loads and loads of fussy cutting.  For the background I used a super Prima stencil, some gesso and some yummy Colour Bloom Tea Stain and lots of stamps.

Sometimes I miss those carefree days but then again, what would life be without a husband, kids, animals and all the joy that they bring!! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit!
Have a super, scrappy, Saturday!
