Cyber Challenge....

Hey There,
Last weekend I had lots of fun playing along with a "Cybercrop" at 
D-Lish Scraps.
The first challenge was a "Blind Scrap". We were given instructions to follow at intervals.....I really enjoyed not having think about what I was doing , except for choosing papers. I sure wish every page would come together this quick!


My page.....

The next challenge was a "Mystery box"

I have used a Doily, Flair button, Resin Flower and Bow, and a Veneer crown.
Thats Four.......I can't remember the fifth?
This page had to be completed by 5 pm the same day....it was a time challenge too.
My page....

I've started painting my Kitchen and some furniture.....I love painting, I find it so relaxing. Its probaby one of the cheapest things to do as far as decorating goes........but it has major impact.
Any way
 Happy Tuesday to you all.........Have a fabulous week, I'll be visiting you soon! In between coats of paint :)

Auzz Trinklets N Kraft

Hi Crafty Friends,

My layout today is created using products from Auzz Trinklets N Craft.
Our Theme for the month of August is "Circles".

I have used stamps from the  Fabulous 'Altenew Vintage Flowers Stamp collection'. I absolutely love how with layering three contrasting colours , I have created these gorgeous flowers and leaves.



The title " Love' was die cut about fours times for added dimension....I wanted it to look like chip board. I used Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
I stamped flourishes, a little machine stitching, some tiny papers flowers and a sprinkle of " Nuvo Crystal Drops" .  Be sure to check out the fabulous range of colours from the STORE. My favorite would have to be the 'Matt finish' .......they look exactly like enamel dots and a lot cheaper!

Happy Creating :)

Creating.....No Time to Blog

Hey Everyone,
I thought I'd show you a few projects that I have created recently but have had no time to add them here.

Two weeks ago my husband and I Celebrated our Wedding Anniversary....30 Years! 
Here is the Super Simple card I made for him. I was browsing Pinterest looking for ideas that were quick and easy....I came across this idea HERE, all you had to do was print it out...PERFECT! I searched Google for a Time and Date calculator, punched the numbers in...Ta Da........We have been married for 10'958 days  - 1'565 weeks - 262,992 hours - 15,779,520 minutes - 946,771,200 seconds. How cool its that!
I used my cricut to cut  four of each number, I stuck them together for extra dimension. Washi tape, a little stitching and a Heart shape paper clip..........done!


Next........You might remember this card from a few weeks ago?
I gave it to a close friend  for her Birthday.......I decorated a match box in the same papers.



I filled the draw with quotes that I found HERE. Just Print, Cut, Stick....they are the perfect size. 



I decorated the box so you could display a quote.
The tags were cut using my Cricut and Art Philosophy cartridge.


On Saturday morning I did a Scrapbook class with 'Cathy Cafun'
This is the gorgeous page we made. The colours were perfect to use a photo from my daughters wedding.



I have a few more things to share but I'll save them for another post!
Hope you are having a fabulous week!

My Daughter celebrating her Birthday


I have used PS Hello Spring sweet cuts for the 'donut' shape -  a sprinkle of chocolate and some and hundreds and thousands (seed beads) Sequins too.....for a little Sparkle!


The background was created with Heidi Swapp pink and gold colour shine. Lots of stamping with PS Hello Friend collection - Celebrate your day and Hip Hip Hooray sentiments. The tiny Hearts are from PS Mason Jar collection.

I thought " Happy" from PS Sweet cuts looked like Chocolate icing :)

Always and Forever

Hellooooo.......I'd like share a layout I created yesterday for the 

'Kraft + Board inspiration + Sheet music challenge 


I was inspired by the Heart, pretty flowers and Sheet music.


 The large Heart was die cut from Kraft paper with my cricut. I found the Vintage sheet music from a local OP shop. I glued a paper napkin to the sheet music, then glued it behind the heart. Love how its transparent and the notes show through :)


Art Philosophy cricut cartridge was used to die cut 'Always and Forever'


Background detail


I thought the Song words were Perfect!

Its a gorgeous winter day here.......Enjoy your weeknd!

Journey

Hello Everyone,
Its been a few weeks since I have posted anything here! 
Thats because .....Lately most projects have ended up in the bin, its just not happening.......:( I suppose that is called 'No Mojo'.....argh!

Well...here is a layout that did work...its a simple page and I like it!

Scrapping Outback has a pretty inspiration photo this month

WHITE with Lilac, Light blue and a touch of grey.


 here is my page


A close up of the gorgeous chip board branch which I bought from 'Scrapping Outback'...its so fine and delicate.




I've added a little texture with a criss cross stencil and a transparent texture paste, some stamping and I also ripped a page from a dictionary with the word 'Ocean' on it. By mistake I printed too many of the one photo...so I layered them up.

I appreciated you stopping by....Enjoy your weekend
