Saying Goodbye To LSBS

After a lot of thought, I have decided to stand down from my position on the Design Team at The Little Scrapbook Shop. It's time for me to move on.

I would really like to thank Cath, Nic and the rest of the team for all of their support during my time there. I'm going to miss them. :(

Some Purple Pumpkin Goodness!

I am lucky enough to be Guest Designer over at the Purple Pumpkin blog this month. I just love their cute buttons, doilies and flowers. Here are the layouts I created using their products. This first one is also my entry at Kraft It Up this month. The challenge is a 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 challenge.

Lachlan loves to write and draw little stories lately. I managed to snap a few photos of him while he was deep in thought, working on his latest masterpiece. :) I have used a Purple Pumpkin spotty button and a couple of the tickets.

And this cute large little boy button.

Here is a close up of the title, which needed to be 3 words.

My next layout is also my entry for the March 1st sketch at Stuck?!. Here is the sketch:

And here is my layout:

How cute are these little mushroom buttons? The colours matched perfectly with my layout.

And here is a close up of the fabric flower from Purple Pumpkin.

And one of the title.

And finally, this layout is a 'just because' one.

I have used some Purple Pumpkin twine, a cute little owl button and some of the crocheted doilies.

Congrats if you made it to the end! lol Thanks so much for stopping by...

My First Layout

This is the first layout I created as a new member of the Creative Team at Chelley Bean Designs. We were given some of this gorgeous hand-dyed Satin seam binding to play with. How gorgeous are the colours?
And this is what I did with it:

I pulled out my sewing machine and sewed it on in strips behind my photos. I also made this cute little flower by adding a bit of twine, some hessian and a button.

Here's a close up of the strips of seam binding:

And a close up of the title:

You can check out what the rest of the CT did here. Thanks for stopping by...

March Mini Sale

A couple of months ago the lovely Michelle Jamieson from Chelley Bean Designs asked me if I would like to join their Creative Team. I love all things handmade so, of course, I said yes! Tonight at 7.00pm Qld time, the March Mini Sale kicks off on the blog. And here is a little sneak peak of what is on offer - some gorgeous hand-dyed seam binding: Be sure to head over to the blog here to see the other sneaks.

Something new...

to share finally! I had a few of the local ladies over for a craft/scrapping get together this morning. It was the first time I have been able to sit and scrap for a long time and it was great! I managed 2 layouts for the morning - one I can share now and one you will have to wait a little longer to see. This is my take on the current challenge at White With 1 - white + kraft + layering.
I found this Crate Paper pp while going through my stash - just the right colour. I pulled out my all new second-hand sewing machine too! Love having a decent machine!! I've used a sewing pattern flower from A Lil Somethin too!

I have used up some of the older things in my stash such as this Kraft envelope and string. And once again I have used one of these cute badges from The Greatest View - I am a little obsessed! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hopefully I will have some more to share in the coming days. ;)
