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.

Gift Tag - Scrap Africa - Challenge no.28 - Distressing with a Difference

Hello Everyone

There is a super new challenge up at Scrap Africa here.
It's all about Distressing with a Difference.  Pop over and have a look at the Design Teams inspiration and ideas.

Here is my take on it.  I created a gift tag.

I used bleach to add colouring to my spritzed background. I also embossed the edges of my leaves, which really gave them a nice lift.

I used the Teresa Collins Save the Date collection, along with some Design Worx chipboard leaves.
I fussy cut the patterned papers too, which really gave me some nice little pieces for layering.

It would be super if you could play along...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really do appreciate your visits.

Birthday Card

Hello Everyone

My "carding" is still on the go and I have a card to share for a 40th birthday.  We had a super party last night, as a friend turned 40 and so, without a doubt, a card had to be made.

I used the beautiful BoBunny Primrose Colllection, along with some pieces from the Kraft Wood collection.

Today my feet and legs were sooooo sore from all the dancing, but it was a good feeling and certainly worth the pain!!! LOL... I feel my age today!!! ;-)

Hope you have a super day today...
Maybe you also got up to something exciting..
Take Care

Farewell Card

Hello Everyone

I have had a hectic week so far and have certainly been "carding" this week.

I had to make a Wedding card for a colleague and it was such a late request, that I made it on Tuesday evening and gave it on Wed morning.  So I did not even have time to take a proper photo! I took one with my cellphone, so will download it and see what the quality was like.

This card that I am sharing, I also made last night and I gave it this morning, so the photo was taken before 7am this morning already! LOL...
Anyways, it's a farewell card that will be passed round the office for signature, as one of the ladies is leaving.
So here's the card...

I used the gorgeous Autumn Song Collection from BoBunny.

Tomorrow evening we are off to a 40th birthday celebration, so had to create a card for that too! See what I mean about the carding!!!! ;-)

Well I hope you have a super Friday...
Thanks for popping in!

Baby Boy - Made Flowers Challenge at Let's Scrap

Hello Everyone

I was asked to be a contributing DT at Let's Scrap and the challenge was to make flowers, whether using diecuts or just hand made.

I created a page using an Olba diecut for the flowers.

I used the gorgeous Baby Bump collection from BoBunny.

I used a stencil and gesso for the hearts, and then did a lot of watercolour painting on and around the hearts.
I even did some watercolouring on the flowers, to blend them in with the colouring of the page better.

This photo is so precious for me, albeit I'm not looking my best, but it was Joe's 2nd day of his little life and he was certainly the most precious thing I had ever held!

Thanks so much for popping in to see what's new at the patch!
I really do appreciate it!
Have a super evening!

Baby Card

Hello Everyone

I hope you have been having a good weekend.

I met up with Evgenia today and finally got to see her little precious bundle! He is absolutely so sweet!
One forgets how small they really are....LOL. Anyways, it was lovely to see her and we had a really nice brunch and chat! ;-)

I am sure she won't mind,  I gave her a card and pressie and quickly snapped a pic of it this morning, before I dashed out the door.

I used the gorgeous Baby Bump collection from BoBunny.

Tomorrow is back to school, after a short school vacation, so back to the hustle and bustle of the school days!! LOL...

Have a super Sunday!

Teachers Gift Idea - BoBunny

Hello Everyone

I am up on the BoBunny blog today with a teachers gift, using the Pop Quiz Collection. This collection is really so super cute and I am still going to create some school pages for Joe with this collection.

I wanted to create something that would be really pretty but also functional.  So I decided to alter a clipboard and also a pen/pencil holder.

The clipboard holds a pad of sticky notes (the square just above the pencil) as well as the white little notes at the bottom and also the large paper clips. The bottom part of the clipboard is actually a little pocket and so really, a number of things can be held in there.

Here's a close up of the pocket.

I used the gorgeous new washi tapes to decorate the pencils and then I altered the tin. I even re-used a really cute little BoBunny tag that had been on the Kraft burlap pleated lace.

I will have to hide the pencils as my son has already had his eye on them. He says he loves the design on them and that they will come in very handy in his pencil box!!!

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Class Clown, Homework, Library, Study Hall/ Pop Quiz
Stickers:  Combo Sticker/ Pop Quiz
Noteworthy: Pop Quiz
