I Am A Rock Star....

Hi all!!

I am here today sharing one last layout I managed to squeeze in for the month using the Scrappy Canary 'Road Trip' Scrapbook kit! I really enjoyed creating a more neutral layout this time...there are plenty of items in this kit to be able to do this too!

'I Am a Rock Star'

My eldest son fancies himself as a bit of an upcoming singer! I wanted to document this and this kit was perfect to get it all down...I especially love that I could use a star as part of my title here....

I got out my trusty old typewriter and typed up my journalling on one of the Teresa Collins journal cards ...something I am doing more and more of lately as I am not a fan of my own handwriting!

That's all from me today.....till next time...happy creating!

Pinterest Addict...

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted in a week, we have had a house of bugs lately so its been hard to fit things in around here!
Hopefully all back on track now though!

Today I wanted to share my layout for the D-lish Scraps Cybercrop that has already been and gone unfortunately but thought I would still share it anyway....
The challenge I set was to scrap about a non living thing and to include triangles on your project also...

I have this slight obsession with Pinterest so I wanted to document this and I have used lots of triangles too! 

Just a quick one from me today...I will be be back again in a few days with more to share from my retreat!

Thanks for stopping by today...

Fun Can Happen Anywhere....

Hi everyone!

I have just come home from another amazing weekend away at the Camp Mojo scrap retreat!!
It was so super inspiring to be around such creative, lovely ladies...I am so lucky! 

Today I am sharing one of the 10 layouts I completed from the weekend just gone...this one is using some of the awesome WOW  August New Release products!

'Fun Can Happen Anywhere'

This particular layout is not normally my style of scrapbooking! Occasionally I don't mind getting a bit messy and random looking!! Behind my photos I have used the *New Release* Large Mixed Circles inked in orange ink and the piece down the bottom also inked with orange ink is the *New Release* Small Mixed Circles cut in half....  

I got out my stamps, mists, washi tape and enamel dots and went crazy lol!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I have loads more layouts to share from my awesome weekend away so stop by again in the next few days!

See you later...

Do Your Best....

Hi everyone!

I am here again with a layout that was a bit of a struggle to create.....I rarely do vintage type pages but I really wanted to use that cool WOW new release piece! I inked it with some copper ink and then added some metal cogs to add more detail...I have teamed it with some 7Gypsies products that I think fit it perfectly.....

Here you can see some detail of that cool gear piece with the metal embellishments added.. 

 I have also used the new release chipboard light bulb also inked with copper ink...

Thank you so much for once again stopping by my blog...I hope you are finding time to scrap? Happy creating...

A Blog Hop with a Difference...

Hi everyone!

I was very happy and so humbled to be asked by Catie Kennedy to join her on this blog hop with a difference....I adore Catie's work....we got to know each other when we were both on the D-lish Scraps design team together last year :)
Be sure to go and check out Catie's beautiful work on her blog here :)

Getting to Know Me:

1. What am I working on right now?

Right now I am working on some upcoming DT projects that I can't share just yet!
I can share a couple of sneaks with you though...

2. How long does it take to complete a project?

Well this varies quite a lot with me, sometimes I can throw a layout together in an hour but other times it will take a week depending on my family and whats happening in our household really! Most often though, it will be 2 or 3 hours if I haven't done too much paper shuffling lol!

3. What are my favourite things to create with at the moment?

Most definitely patterned paper, it always has been and I think always will be my most favourite item! I also love to use bags/pockets, frames, mini wooden pegs and flair as well 

4.  How does my creative process work?

Well, sometimes the mojo just flows and out comes a layout that I love but other times I paper shuffle for too long and end up having to walk away and come back later lol! I usually will have a photo chosen and then I will pick papers and embellishments etc that I think will go with my photo...I lay it all down and move things around 100 times until I am happy...I then usually take a sneak peak photo and a full shot so I can follow that before I stick it all down so I know where everything was lol! 

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired? 

I am inspired by so much all of the time!! I adore fellow scrapbookers work, Pinterest (my other addiction), magazines, billboards, clothes, colour, you name it, I will look at in an arty type way lol! I stay inspired by creating, creating and doing more creating...I find if I have an extended break any time that I really struggle with inspiration so I find I have to stick at it to keep myself inspired....oh what a shame lol!!

So there you have it, now you know a little about my creative side, its time to get to know some more very talented and gorgeous ladies who I am ever so pleased they are joining me on this blog hop and they are...

Raquel Bowman

Raquel has the most fresh, gorgeous style with her scrapbooking, she loves to use lots of beautiful clusters yet keep a clean, modern look to her work...I just adore what she creates..she was also lucky enough to be recently asked to join the Glitz Design Creative can be inspired by Raquel's stunning work by heading over to her blog:

Manda Moore

Manda is one very busy but talented lady! Together with a new online kit club and being founder of the free online magazine Life.Paper.Scrapbook she still finds time to produce some amazing work...Manda and I have had many great chats via Facebook! Manda's style is a little similar to mine often with bright colours, clean lines and quite a modern can be inspired by Manda's gorgeous work by visiting her blog:

Bernii Miller

Although I don't know Bernii all that well, I asked her to join in because her work rocks! I will be lucky enough however to meet her IRL next month...can't wait!! As one of the 10 Scrapbooking Memories Magazine Masters this year and also a design team member for Bo Bunny she creates some beautiful and fresh looking projects....please head over to see more of Bernii's gorgeousness on her blog:
