D-Lish Reveal for August

This month’s reveal at D-Lish Scraps saw me doing more ‘girly’ feminine layout. Both of the layouts feature my darling old cat Jazz. She is getting really quite stiff and a bit on the cranky side, and I think arthritis is making it harder and harder for her to get around ..poor girl!

But I think it is very important to document your families pets, as they aren’t with us for very long in the grand scheme of life.

So here are my layouts

“@ 13 years”IMG_9149IMG_9150IMG_9151


“Noted”- featuring a heaps of purple and pink flowers and embellishments that I seem to accumulate in my stash from various packs and grab bags…LOL



“Shine” -And then this ‘schooly’ page which isn’t very traditional at all. But I just love yellow and red


So if you like the look of these embellishments used on my layouts, you can find them at D-Lish Scraps.

cheers and Happy Scrapping

Kaisercraft ‘Bow and Arrow’ By Wendy Smith

The NEW Kaisercraft ‘Bow & Arrow’ range is available at Anna’s Craft Cupboard now. Loving the pastels in this range, peaches and aquas with some naturals and woodgrain. It is just beautiful and really easy to create with.

I have done 3 layouts, and have another 2 sitting on my desk half done(not due to lack of MOJO just lack of time), I hope to share those with you too at some stage.


“#Max” - also using some Freckled Fawn Wood Veneers and Heidi Swapp alphas



‘Hello Beautiful’



‘Spectacular Capture’ IMG_9107IMG_9108IMG_9109

Happy Creating

Carta Bella ‘Boy Oh Boy’

I love a good boy range, and Carta Bella has a doosey here.. it’s called “Boy Oh Boy” and boy oh boy…it sure is fantastic. I love the primary colours in this range, and the awesome sentiments and journal card/papers in this rang. It also has terrific texture to the paper (like Carta Bella always does), which makes grunging and tearing a dream, and it’s available at Anna’s Craft Cupboard now.


“Play Kick Run” IMG_9110IMG_9111IMG_9112


“Best Smile” IMG_9113IMG_9114


This is another fantastic range to play with, and if you have boys (like me) then it is a MUST HAVE.


Cheers and Happy Scrapping

October Afternoon “Public Library’

Yet another fantastic range released from October Afternoon available at Anna’s Craft Cupboard. They sure know how to keep producing great ranges, and ‘Public Library’ is no exception. The colours that October Afternoon are renowned for are present once more in this cute and fun range.

Here are a couple of layouts I have put together to showcase the range.

‘Perfect’ - also showing some 2 Crafty Chipboard



‘He’s a Reader’


I just love this range and think it is so easy to use, it certainly doesn’t have to be used for ‘reading’ photos but I thought I might as well seeing as I had one!
