As it is still the month of love...

Well seeing that it is still the month of love, I thought I would share a layout I did some time ago. I did this layout to remember the fantastic Valentines day my husband and I celebrated last year. I love all the bits a pieces I used on this one, and it was my first go at masking which I enjoyed!

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

More new stuff to share

Yes, I have been busy creating over these past few weeks and I thought I would share with you some more new stuff.

This year instead of making my husband a card for Valentines day I decided to make something small but a little more special using one of the Twiddleybitz small shadow boxes. This is what I came up with. I had fun trying to put as many little pieces as I could on this one! LOL

The classes are going well and this week we did the Easel class. I have a special Aunty and Uncle that recently celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary so I will be gifting mine to them. I did a 6 x 6 layout to go on the Easel. It changed a little from the origional layout I did - sometimes I just can't leave things alone!! Well here it is:

I have used 3 Twiddleybitz on this one... can you find them?

If you would like to own one of these easels, I am now selling them finished. It is $40 for the easel, and if you would like a custom 6x6 layout to go with your photo it it is an extra $10. Plus postage.

Well that is all from me. Must get back to finding where my little munchkin has gotten to now that he is crawling!

New Design Team stuff arriving at Tomorrow's Memories

Yes, I haven't forgotten about you all, I have just been SUPER busy running my classes as well as getting some new stuff done for Tomorrow's Memories and Twiddleybitz. I received a Pack from Tomorrow's Memories just over a week ago, and I have been busy having a play with all of the yummy stuff they sent me!! These girls really look after me with all the cool things (especially the boy paper) I get to play with. Below are what I came up with. Hope you like them...

This is a beautiful Dusty Attic Dress form... they are SOOO divine - just so delicate to work with. I didn't want to do too much to it as it would detract away from how beautiful it is. I painted the dress with some Ranger Distress Crackle paint and then embossed the stand with silver. Added some really tiny metal flowers and some ribbon for a little more of a girly touch.

Four gorgeous little cards that were SO easy to make, I just love them and wanted to keep them, but alas I will have to wait until they come back to me :(

I ABSOLUTELY loved working with this paper, and I knew Austin had a pair of overalls that besides being a size too big would just work SO well with it, so I dressed him in them and snapped away, the photos reminded me of his many cheeky smiles and personality that is showing SO much these days!

Lastly I did this layout using the ribbons from the March Ribbon Club ribbons. They are all on there!! It just suited this photo I took of Austin and his cousin Jett on Australia Day. I couldn't help but add the Australian Twiddleybitz pieces that I had been wanting to use for a while, they worked really well, and I even added my own design of a 7 pointed star made by cutting up some scrap Twiddleybitz chipboard I had left over from another project... good thing I am always cutting up bits and pieces!

Well I hope you enjoyed my latest share.... more to come REAL soon!

Classes are going really well and I already have some regulars which is nice... If you are interested in coming along, e-mail at for the new class schedule!

well, bye for now, hope you enjoy your weekend... I know I am!

First Class - prize up for grabs!!

Well my first class commences on Wednesday with the 'Christmas Time' Layout so I thought I would share a picture of the classroom (air conditioned) all ready to go. As it grows I have the ability to fit another two tables in front of these allowing for a total of 8 people to attend the classes and give everyone plenty of room.

To celebrate the first class for Scrappy Chat Designs, I thought I would add an extra prize on top of the door prize on the night!
Yes that is right! If you order a pack (while stocks last) of this layout which includes all the embellishments (of which there are a few) the titles and sheets of paper needed to re-create it, or book in to attend the class, you will be in the running to win this pack of Loire Valley Clear Stamps from Kaisercraft.

I will draw the winner on Friday February 5th once people have had the opportunity to purchase the pack after the class and will announce the winner on the blog!
