A bit of this and a bit of that….

Hello there and happy 2016!! I hope this brand new year is being good to you so far and that you all had a joyous and love filled Christmas!

I am here today sharing a couple of non-DD projects that I neglected to share pre-Christmas. I had the craziest 10 or so days ever and have fallen behind in everything but all my photo’s are printed and in our DD album!

But for now I will share the frame I made for my lucky winner over on my FB page To The Stars and Back and also a 12×12 layout I made as part of my term on the Dusty Attic DT while they sponsored the challenge over at Scrap Around the World in December.

First up here is the finished coloured fairy as a refresher that I popped into a frame πŸ™‚

And the finished product πŸ™‚

As you can see I kept it pretty simple so that my little fairy stole the show πŸ˜‰ That paper in the background is actually a piece of patterned paper from a 6×6 paper stack, perfectly matched! A doily and some little resin stars πŸ™‚ Rosalee loved it and I believe it was going to her grand daughter so I hope she too loves it!!

And onto my 2nd share for this post – a 12×12 layout I created using a photo from our wedding vow renewal in April last year πŸ™‚

I found the #happy range by Websters Pages AGES ago and KNEW that I would want to use it to scrap some of these photos so I have used that as the background layer, added in some floral pieces from one of the Maggie Holmes floral ephemera packs and then used a Dusty Attic chippy for the title, a frame, an XOXO piece and also a little row of hearts. Oh, and that gorgeous Β potion bottle! The glitter is Stampin Up gold glass glitter and I LOVE how it turned out! The potion bottle was coated in white (as was the mini frame) and then I water coloured the leaves and cork.


A close up of the detail in the middle of the page – I am really so happy with how this turned out and can’t wait to make some more layout’s using both this range and those photos!!


And, finally, a close up of the title and the potion jar!

I hope you have liked seeing these projects and I hope to be back very soon with another post!!

Happy scrapping!

Project Life 2015 Update

Hi there!!

Just wanted to pop in here this morning and share a bit of an update on our 2015 Project Life album!

Firstly, I am totally loving the process and ALMOST up to date! Woo hoo!! The closest I have been since December or there abouts!!

I have completed in my album our weeks 1-15 and weeks 16 and 17 are sitting in sleeves in our album awaiting cards and journalling!Β 

I have done a little blogging of some of our weeks with a couple of various DT posts so I will share links for those here and photos for the gaps and probably a couple more week spreads πŸ™‚

You can find Week 1 here – A spread I did for the Life Zesters DT February Challenge. Sadly, LZ is no longer, the decision was made at the end of April to close it down 😦

You can find Week 2 here – Again, a spread I did for the LZ DT March Challenge

Week 3

As this week sits in our album πŸ™‚

I have used a 6×6 paper pad for this week, Creative Agenda by Echo Park and paired that with some fun dark blue enamel dots and stars, some labels, washi and alphas from my stash.Β 

The left side

And the right side

Week 3 saw my big boy’s 5th birthday and party so of course an insert!

The front (I used a G design PP)


I have used a did TMNT paper pack which I purchased through Etsy and included his invite and also the tags from the lolly bags which I popped into a little pocket I hand sewed together top left πŸ™‚
Bottom right is a flip πŸ™‚


And then the back of the insert


Week 4 can be found here – I did Life Zesters April Challenge this month

Week 5

As this week sits in our album

I have used the Heidi Swapp September Skies PL kit and added in a few ephemera pieces from the same range and also those gorgeous glittery blue thickers.

The left hand side

And the right hand side – again another flip, top right – I have used heaps of these, they are AWESOME!!

And under the flip πŸ™‚


Week 6

As it is in the album

I have used a PL Specialty Cards “Noted” pack paired with some Shimelle rub on’s, alpha/word stickers and some puffy stickers from my stash πŸ™‚

The left hand side

And the right hand side – another flip, bottom left

And what is under the flip with some journalling straight onto the photo in the A desgin PP.


Week 6 saw the start of Term 1 2015 which meant full time school for my big boy which called for an insert!!

This time I used an A design PP which I have cut down on the right hand side and then sewed back up along the cut edge.

I have used the Websters Pages Hall Pass range for the papers and some embellishments and also used some of the bits from the Heidi Swapp September Skies ephemera pack. The tabs I have used on the right hand edge are from Flutterby Designs – an Australian company πŸ™‚

And the back

Onto week 7

I have used one of my most fave paper lines for this week – Simple Stories Daily Grind. I also found an ephemera pack for the same range – insert squeal of excitement!! Haha!! I have also teamed the ephemera pack with some glittery black thickers, I just LOVE this font!!

Both pages as they are in the album

The left hand side

And the right hand side


Now, one thing I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE about PL is being able to include some of the “stuff” the boys do. On the left side of this spread, top right there is a photo of Hunter painting. While we had the paints out (and knowing it was going to end up all over his hands anyways πŸ˜‰ ) I got him to give me a hand print on some white cardstock. This is his hand, exactly as it was (well, perhaps not with tips of his fingers missing!!) on that day. That is important to me.

And now I can hear my little guy is awake so I shall link you up to our week 8 and go and do the “Mum thing”! Week 8 was documented with a tonne of Dusty Attic goodies, painted GOLD and shared here.

So, that’s it for me for today. I hope to be back very soon with some more PL updates, who knows, perhaps not only will our real life album be up date but perhaps my blog album will also be up to date!!

Happy scrapping and if you are reading and it is still Sunday, Happy Mumma’s day, if it is Monday, Happy Mummas Day for yesterday and I hope Monday is kind to you!!

Thanks for stopping by!
