Basic Grey - Granola Range

I decided to do two layouts using the same range to show how by using the same papers you create a Boys or Girls Layout. This layout I used an XCut Sqaure nesting punch to cut out a patchwork look and I reversed it on the other layout . Adding glimmer mist and distressing all the edges you can create a natural looking layout for any occasion. Adding twine to your layout will also give it a natural finish.

Basic Grey Layout

This is two layouts I did with Basic Grey Papers. I enjoyed distressing the edges and making my own distressed flower like embellishments using EK circle punches and Brads and of course I added Lace to complete the effect.

Kaiser "Le Chateau" Layout

A Layout is a combination of the beautiful "Le Chateau " papers, glimmer mist and Kaisers pearls. The embellishments are the new Wooden flourishes from Kaiser. I personally just love them.

Great Quote

I love this Quote ... it is so true... I had to share it with everyone...

"There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama & the people who create it & surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy. "

You know sometimes we loose ourselves in the stuff that is happening around us.. but we forget that you can be here one minute and gone the next. Loosing someone has brought this into prospective... I wish life didn't have to be the way it is at times... and we can all be happy !!!

Don''t forget to tell the people who are around you that you love them and you are glad that they have made a difference in your life....!!

Happy Thoughts!! and have a great day!!!

Kaiser La Di Da Range

It is my opinion, This is one of the prettiest ranges Kaiser has created .( La Di Da ) I loved playing with this range. The photo is not the best but I enjoyed how I created a simple layout then added stitching to highlight the butterfly embellishment and my own paper flower . I so love making my own embellishments lately especially flowers....

Prima Flower doll

This was one of the makes and takes at the Prima stand... I so enjoyed doing this one... when i got home tho i did add alot more bling ... because bling is my thing..LOL..

More photos from SIA

The first day we were in Sydney Donna from AS4E dropped us off to Parramatta shopping centre for some well earned retail theraphy. When we finally decided to go back to Home Bush we caught a train... Well to my surprise it was a double decker train. I had never seen one except for the overlander type trains. It was fun to ride on one... LOL.. little things amuse small minds..LOL.. this is Cressey and Carolyn... enjoying the ride...
On the first day of SIA we met up with Joy from Bumble bee in Brisbane and we got to do the most adorable card at their stand .
and Carolyn is displaying the finished product... it's so cute
We also got to have some fun after our make and take at the Scrapeware stand. Those girls were so lovely and talented....

Hi Everyone... just got back from SIA in Sydney .. It was fantastic.. Have met some amazing people ... Done the best classes... and learnt so much in such a short time. I went with my business partner Cressey , along with my teacher from the shop Carolyn, and good friend Nerrida. We started on Monday where the lovely Donna from AS4E, came and picked us up and took us to her warehouse. We had such fun doing some make and takes and then she dropped us off to Paramatta shopping centre for some well earned shopping .... It was an early start on Tuesday as our classes started at 8am , but it was so worth it as Cressey and I got to meet the lovely and amazing Wendy Senger.. (Tattered Angels) ... and we spend the next 2 hours playing with Glimmer Mists... How exciting are they!!!

Wendy and Heidi Swapp have been in Australia for the past few weeks doing the" Mistified" classes along with SIA ... If you were one of the lucky one's to attend these classes I am sure you weren't disappointed as both of these girls are truly talented... It was Great!!

Kaiser Papers - Devonshire range

I really enjoyed this page. I used 7 Gypsies as a base page and then had fun playing with Memory Mists . I love the effect it gives not only your paper but i used it on the lace as well. The embellishments pack from Kaiser was so pretty, from its lace roses to the wonderful pearl brads.
I also made another layout using the Kaiser " Devonshire " range and I will post that soon. Out of my scraps.. I mean SCRAPS! I got to make two cards with the left overs. I find it gets rid of those little bits and pieces and you have a wonderful hand made card to give some one..

This is yet a different look at what I did with The Imaginese papers. and I am still

This is another layout I used the Imaginesce ( lucy bird) range. Again by making my own hand made flowers , the "ITop" to make the wonderful brad centres and of course Bling!! I just love how it all came together. I am so hooked on the tool... If you notice I even put rhinestones on my niece's necklace and it gave it a real 3d feel...

Imaginesce - Lucy Bird Paper & the ITOP

Wow... what a lovely paper this range is .. Imaginesce - Lucy Bird.. I have actually done 3 Layotus with paper range and still have left overs to make more. I purchased the new "ITOP"
from imaginesce as well... and now I can't stop playin with it. Its just brilliant. Not only can you use it with paper, you can also use it with fabric and photo's as well. This amazing little brad making is a must for any serious scrapper...I Love it!!

Pink Paislee - Cupid Collection

This would have to be one of my favourite paper ranges ... Pink Paislee.. This Layout was fun to do and I even was able to make a card with my left overs.

Basic Grey - Origin range

This is a layout using Basic Grey -Origins collection. Again I hand made the flower and used Magic Mesh on this layout. I am really liking the effect the Magic Mesh gives to your page.

Basic Grey Papers

I have been doing a lot of Scrapbooking layouts but have had no time to post any ... My Shop is just going so well... its keeping me very busy. I will posting some layouts i have been working on very soon. Above it a layout I did using Basic Grey papers... I love this range and better than that they are actually double sided , which is something Basic Grey doesn't usually do. I hand made my flowers but I have to say I used my friends children on the layout as I have only boys and I needed some girls shots for these papers. I love how the end result came around and hope you do to.
