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.

Hello Friend - Graphic 45 Tag

Hello Everyone

As I mentioned in my previous post, we got a little, new addition to the family.  She is a little Shar-pei. So here's a first look at her.  These were taken the first day we got her.  She is only 3 and a half weeks old.



She is really so sweet.  As to her name...not quite decided..I can't believe that we haven't decided on a definite one yet! But I am sure we will very soon! ;-)

I created a Graphic 45 tag, after playing with some Botanical Tea in my last project.  This really is such a pretty and feminine collection.

So here it is.


A little look from the side.


I so love this collection!

Anyways, hope you had a super Sunday and weekend!
Thanks for popping by!

Hello Pretty Bird - Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge no.54

Hello Everyone

Such a busy week!! My hubby has been away and so I have been chief cook and bottle washer again! My husbands boys are a also here for the holidays...so it's a full house!

I also got a new baby yesterday...a little Shar pei puppy...3 weeks old.  Her Mommy stopped feeding them because they were hurting her too much, so I took her early and I am now Mommy to this small little thing. So yes...my hands have been full!! ;-)

There is a new sketch over at Scrap Africa  and we would love for you to play along.



I did a layout of one of my other babies...my bird Pepsi! ;-)


I used the really pretty papers and elements from Graphic 45, Botanical Tea along with a Kaisercraft stencil.


I did lots of fussy cutting and really enjoyed using all these little elements.


The stencilling and stamping just added such a nice softness to this page.  I was really pleased with how it turned out.

Maybe you have some time to play along? You have until 14 July.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a super day!

I am so blessed and thankful to have another card published in the June issue of Craft Stamper! ;-)

I will share that card with you at a later stage.

This is really a fabulous magazine....so if you can get your hands on it, it's well worth the read and is full of inspiration! ;-)

Have a super evening...

General Tag - FabScraps Tranquility Collection

Hello Everyone

Wow...a busy weekend...friends, family, scrapping...all rolled into one! ;-) But all good...so I am certainly not complaining! ;-) I hope you had a super weekend too.

I quickly wanted to share another tag that I made using the FabScraps Tranquility Collection.  This time it was a general tag.


This collection is really pretty and there are some amazing little flowers and leaves that can be fussy cut.  Here I used some of those flowers and coloured them pink.


I have a tutorial up on the FabScraps blog, with a step by step, on how to create this tag. So if you want to pop along and have a look, then that would be super! ;-)

Thanks ever so much for taking the time to pop by and say hello....I know time is of the essence for all of us and the social media is sometimes, just all too much! ;-)

Have a super evening!

Live Laugh Love Tag - FabScraps

Hello Everyone

I have been furiously creating in the background and I have lots to share with you! ;-)
BUT I will not overload you and so today is a share on a tag that I made with some fabulicious FabScraps goodies, from the Tranquility Collection.


I really had so much fun creating this tag and it was a little sad that I had to cover up so much of that beautiful background.

Here's what it looked like.


In any case, after many layers and goodies later...the tag was finished! If you would like to see a step by step...then you are welcome to check it out on the FabScraps blog here.

Another view.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a super evening!

Time Together - Prima PPP June

Hello Everyone

I loved the colours of the Prima PPP this month and so really wanted to play along! ;-)

PPPJUNE2015

Here's the page I created.


I had this photo of Joe and I, for a while now, which I really wanted to use.

I used the beautiful Cigar Box Secrets collection. These colours were perfect.



A lot of work went into these flower clusters, as I used a gorgeous die-cut for most of the flowers, leaves and bits. I didn't have the sized flowers that I needed and so used Prima patterned papers to create them, along with some watercolouring and pens.


I also did some gesso and paint stencilling on the background, along with some stamping.


I also did some layers of string around my circle centre piece.


This page was really a labour of love, but I really enjoyed using the die-cuts and making the embellies, all out of patterned paper. It is a special page and so was done with lots of love! ;-)

I hope you have a good evening!
Tonight has to be an early one for me...last night was waaaaaay too late! ;-)
