A Little STUCK?!

Finally got around to doing a STUCK sketch…I have been meaning to get onto them for a while now, but have always run out of time..!

This is my take on the sketch. I am not very good at doing the whole ‘colour-blocking’ thing, so I used shipping tags for journalling on instead

Using leftovers?

I love getting stuck into my scraps for DT kits, and creating using the left overs. I don’t fancy myself as much of a card maker so I usually try and squeeze out a layout or 2

Using the left overs from Anna’s Craft Cupboard DT kits is pretty easy, as Anna always sends so much stuff. these 2 layouts are done using the scraps from the Sass Lass ‘Count me in’ and Cosmo Cricket ‘Togetherness’ ranges….NICE!

This first one is totally inspired by one that I saw on Anthea Peterson's blog a while back.. LOVED the sun and couldnt help but lift it..thanks!

NEW challenges…

At both Scrap the Boys and at Inspired Blueprints. Gotta love some fresh inspiration

Scrap the Boys has a new ‘Devils in the Detail’ Challenge…MATERIAL. Use material on a layout…think Denim, hessian, cord….boy type fabrics.

I used Denim embellishments from the last SWAP…and they were terrific

And over at Inspired Blueprints…they have a new sketch up

And this is my take on the sketch…I kind of squished it in a bit to create a layout that was a little bit more ME



So if you are out and about and looking for some inspiration, why not check these 2 sites out.

I would love to see your takes on the challenges…leave me a comment with your link, and I’ll pop over and comment on it!

Christmas in 10 week, which means……..

…getting out the Christmas photos and using some of the new released Christmas paper ranges!

Anna’s Craft Cupboard sent me the Lily Bee ‘Christmas Town’ papers, stickers, and chipboard buttons, and I love it.





And this paper range is even terrific for NON Christmas Layout..like this one of Angus riding without training wheels

Count Me In…

I got sent the fairly new Sassafras Lass ‘Count Me In’ papers and element stickers from Anna’s Craft Cupboard this month, and at first I thought OMG what am I going to do with these cutsie girly papers..

Well here is what I did with them(journalling not done due to layouts being of someone else’s child)


And this one..

I’ve Been Busy!

getting stuck right into this months Challenges before my DT kits arrive has proven to be very productive.

Challenge Heaven always prove to provide me with so much inspiration, I cant help but get stuck right in.

Their SKETCH is so cute and I just had to scrap these picture of Charlie at his first ever Book Week Parade. He didn’t want to dress up, so I convinced him to wear these glasses and go in disguise like the mouse and strawberry in the book ‘ The Big Red Strawberry’…. he was happy with that.



And I love their theme this month, Birthday Cake photos…..who doesn’t have a gazillion of these about??? So I scrapped Angus’ birthday cake this year… his Star Wars Extravaganza R2D2 cake


Now the lovely Lisa Warren challenged me yesterday to do a layout with the following criteria- No Ink(WTF), No Cardstock, Multiple pics, 1 word title, and polka dots

This is my Layout using the criteria!


I also managed to get the COLOUR challenge done at Savvy …even though I struggled to add purple…don’t like purple, and don’t have much in my stash…LOL
