Stash Busting

Savvy is having their CC this week, and the theme is STASH BUSTING. I am always looking for a goo excuse to use up scraps and older stash.

Kerryn put forward the challenge to use old stash from before 2010, make your own embellishment and use 2 cardstocks


and here are my handmade embellishments (felt flower and paper rosette)


And then Anthea challenged us to a similar challenge, with papers older than 2010, handmade embellishment and NO cardstock


and a close-up of the handmade paper flower



San challenge up to make some tags out of scraps


here is one on it’s own


We also did a BLIND SCRAP, and I am dying to share it this month, as I actually did it without difficulty, so now I am just wondering if I did it right…ROFL

A creative way to use journal blocks….

Ever wondered to yourself “What am I going to do with these GIANT journal blocks?” I know I have. When I got the ‘Isla’ Kit Storyboard Kits  this month, I saw how many big Journal blocks there were and thought to myself “I am going to create a background with these”. Check out my step by step on the blog.

Cannot believe that our Barkley boy is gone. He would have been 2yr next month…I loved him to bits. He was a spoodle(poodle x spaniel)..and had the nicest nature.

I can home briefly from dropping Angus off at my sisters, to grab my wallet before heading to an appointment, and found him about 20metres from the driveway on the road. He was barely breathing, so I raced him to the vet which is literally 2 min away, but he was dead by the time I got there. There was nothing they could do.

Bad Blogger..

…I know it has been a long time…almost 2 weeks! That is just not like me. So what excuses can I come up with…let me see…I have been busy doing some ‘secret’ scrapping that I cannot share yet, I have had a birthday party to plan for a 6year old, I have been helping my MIL find a house in Tasmania, as she is moving here from Adelaide, and I have been working a little more than usual…so I guess with all that added up, I have an excuse…SORT OF!

Anyway, I suppose I should share some layouts I did a last week for Anna’s Craft Cupboard using the October Afternoon Campfire range, and Cosmo Cricket Social Club range


and a little close-up, how cute are these little woodland critters


And this layout, where I have cut a fringe into the bottom edge of the kraft paper, and used little paper scrolls for a border

Who would have thought that keeping a weekly album would be so hard. I for one thought that I took HEAPS of photos, and often, but apparently not as often as I thought..ROFL

Anyways, here are weeks 7 & 8


and a little close-up for you


And here is Angus’ first day of school in week 8


and another close-up

March Sketch

Yet again the next month rolls around, where is this year going???

I have created a single photo sketch at Anna’s Craft Cupboard for you to play with, but you can adapt it to suit multiple photo’s if you wish.

Anna March 11

And here is my version of the sketch, a cute cuddly picture of my kids and one of their cousins Evie, and Granma and Grandad


And a closeup of my clustering


If you haven’t played along at Anna’s before, or if you play along every month, I would love to see what you create with the sketch. The prize is a randomly drawn $40 voucher from the shop.

Check it out…

Scrap The Boys is back…and they have a new challenge for you.


This month your challenge is to use a specific TIME as your layout's title...

- Capture a moment in your day that you want to remember, part of your daily routine or something special the kids or hubby has on, or a specific day or moment that you want to remember.
You then need to use that time/date as your layout title.

Here is my example…I choose to do a Date!
