Fiji Picture Perfect - CSI Case File 247

Another very last minute entry for February challenges, this time the CSI Challenge. I have never played along before so it was good to try another challenge.

I immediately thought of some pics from our 2012 holiday to Fiji that I was still to scrap.

The colour scheme was so bright and fun.

I fussy cut the Hibiscus flowers from a Kaisercraft paper. 

The tropical theme wood veneers were also from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by,

SBT50 Australia Feb Challenge

Eek how is it the end of February today already...

I am sneaking in some last minute challenge entries. The first one is this awesome inspiration piece from Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

I have used the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection. I added some splatters of Gold Colour Shine from Heidi Swapp and a few random enamel dots. The Love title comes from some Thickers from I think an Amy Tangerine collection.

The floral diecuts in this collection were just perfect and I fussy cut more florals from one of the gorgeous papers.

Love the look on my little guy's face.

I also added in some diecut flowers and leaves in white for some subtle texture.

I was really pleased with how this page turned out.

My Crew - Show us your Stuff Feb Challenge

Hi there,

I am sharing my entry for the Show us Your Stuff Feb Challenge today. Here is the gorgeous sketch we had to work with.

And here is my layout "My Crew"

I created my background with spray inks applied with the packaging technique. The circular element used drizzled black pant.

My handmade item is the cute teal heart from Charms Creations.

Thanks for checking out my layout.

Stuck Feb 15 challenges

Hi scrappy friends,

Stuck sketches have two sketches for the mid month challenge in Feb. It was too hard to I didn't and I did both.

I am still stash-busting my kit from Anna's Craft Cupboard (March 2017) but after these two layouts I am calling it done and moving on to the next kit in my stash.

Here is the first sketch

I thought this sketch would be perfect for highlighting a pretty paper across the bottom strip.

And here is sketch number 2 (so gorgeous - how could I choose)

Thanks for stopping by.

#Happiness - A rainbow of Colorblast goodies

Hi there Scrappy friends,

Colourblast Australia has a fun challenge again this month to use a rainbow of colour.

Here is my layout created with Colourblast pastes and my favourite Finnabair circle stencil.

Amongst my layers I added in this cute black glitter heart from Charms Creations.

I have added some stamping around the edge of my layout and then mounted it on black cardstock (circle stamp from Studio Calico, grid from Kaisercraft).

The cute star flair is from Funky Flair Studio. The labels and tags came from a cute diecut package from Fancy Pants Joy Parade. The tags and labels pack is jam packed full of goodness.

This challenge was a lot of fun. Are you playing along this month?

Happy scrapping

Stuck Sketches Feb - Hello Gorgeous

I am currently working my way through some old kits in my scrappy stash so for the February Stuck Sketches I am using the March 2017 kit from Anna's Craft Cupboard.

Here is the Feb 1 sketch

And my layout

I stuck fairly closely to the sketch but switched out the two small photos for one 4x6.

I have tucked in lots of floral diecuts and cut some hearts from the gorgeous patterned paper.

Thanks for checking out my layout.

Mamma Mia it's an Abba challenge

Dancing Queen, Waterloo so many classics came from ABBA.

As a little one I was a massive ABBA fan so when I saw the Kraft Plus challenge for February featured ABBA I knew I had to scrap about my childhood obsession.

How awesome is that graphic?

I found the perfect diecut pack in my stash with those cute little records, It was a cheapy I picked up at my local Reject Shop.

I have so few photos of myself when I was little so I had to settle for this blurry pic posing with my stroller and dollies.

I have added my journaling on the little tag tucked away behind my photo.

Thank you for the music ABBA.

My first ever post for Funky Flair Studio - Dreamer

I am so excited to share today my first ever post for Funky Flair Studio as part of the Design Team.

You may have noticed I have been using their Flair and kits for a while so when the lovely Evie (owner of Funky Flair Studio) put up a call for new Design Team members I was quick to send through some samples. When my first package of flair arrived it was happy days indeed.

But enough rambling, here is my share

I have used the gorgeous Indigo Blue Kit from the shop. These kits are limited edition with each release. I loved the gorgeous blues in this kit.

Here is a closer look 

This little silver arrow was just so cute

Thanks for checking out my first DT share.

Don't forget to share your projects using Funky Flair products in the facebook group. I would love to see what you are creating.

Happy Scrapping

Rediscover your stash - Week 3 Sketch "Sail Away"

Hello scrappy friends,

I am loving the challenges in the #Rediscoveryourstash Round 3 Facebook event. This time I am playing along with Challenge 14 the week 3 sketch. 

I am still stash bashing my Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection - such gorgeous bright colours with a touch of woodgrain. I used scraps from the collections and used a Kaisercraft woodgrain from the Basecoat release for the background (I bought so much of this paper -
still love it).

I stuck very closely to the sketch with my layout "Sail Away"

The little anchor geotag is pointing at the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background of the photo.

I love the camera motifs in this collection - just perfect for travel photos.

White with 1 - Feb 2018

Woohoo it's a new month which means lots of new challenges.

The White With 1 challenge this month is a sketch combined with Sizzling Pink. 


I decided to scrapbook some goofy snapchat photos of myself 

My background has some paint scraped across using Dylusions in Bubblegum pink. Next I added some washi and gyprock tape for added texture. I used doilies for the circular elements of the sketch.

I painted a gorgeous chipboard circle element in white and cut it up to use in all the different sections of the page - (2Crafty Star Bubble Set).

I have added a puffy sticker "Laugh" and some hearts which were from Heidi Swapp.

I added in some cut-aparts from Flutterby Designs.

The stitched circle stamp I have used in my background is from Kaisercraft. 

Please feel free to ask me if you would like details on any of the other elements on my layout.

I hope you will play along with us this month at White with 1.

Happy Scrapping.
