Scrappin at last!

Yippee finally I get to sit down and have a play! I have been chomping at the bit to get the Heidi Swapp Invisible's out and have a play, and once I got started it didn't take long at all to come together - actually it would have to be one of the fastest layouts I have done!

The photo was taken earlier this month when Nigel & I went to a lip sync fundraiser we borrowed the clothes from Tracy Hutchison (bless her and her dress up box) and Abby just would not take the clothes off!
So Jamie and her got dressed up and being the scrap book mother that I am couldn't resist taking a photo (although I did promise Jamie that no one would see it - our secret shhhh).

This morning I decided about time I just had a day for ME and the house work (and breakfast mess lol) can just wait! Here it is - I am really happy with how it turned out!I used Tim Holtz distress inks, with the Tim Holtz blender tool - LOVE'N that! Heidi Swapp invisiables paper and alphabet stickers, rub on's, my handy Dymo (just couldnt bring myself to write in it - Bronwyn will be pleased) a warehouse butterfly and a crochet one that my mum made for me and only brought over this morning (mum can I please have another 20 - love ya mum!) The heart at the top was cut out of the left over Heidi Swapp Invisiables stickers at the bottom of the alphabet sheet.

Righto that's it for me - guess I better get into the kitchen and clean up the mess and make some lunch - then back to being creative for me!

Have a great week, I hope to be back soon to share some photos from the wonderful Oamaru Crop that we had this weekend - you girls ROCKED!

Catch you soon



Oh PS will also be back with a give away too! :-)

Missing in Action!

Wow where had that time gone?

I have been so busy but don't really have any thing to show you!

Bronwyn & I went away for a weekend - girls retreat at our friend Elvina's house and met up with her partner in crime Anne for a fab weekend of Eating, scrapping, Eating, giggling and did I mention EATING?
Bronwyn & I left Timaru at about 5.45am as Bronwyn had agility with Benji (go team RUMBLE) and so we stopped at McDonalds in Ashburton and had breakfast - I was good (the only time) and had cereal. Then when Anne, Elvina and their daughters picked me up we went and had breakfast again - YUMMY they introduced me to Belgin Hot Chocolate's just like drinking liquid chocolate! Oh and a tomato cream cheese and bacon bagel!
Then off we went on a couple of jobs one to pick the stain glass for Anne's new fab house complete with a "girl cave" just for scrap booking (Yes I invited myself back he he) The poor lady when she saw five of us turn up to help pick colours but really she knew what she was doing and what she wanted to do, can't wait to see the door finished!
Scrapbooking - I spent the rest of the day scrappin just for me! Well that and eating all the goodies we had on the table - oh and the short break to go to the new chocolate shop in Riccarton Mall for another Belgin chocolate and THREE cakes - I just couldn't choose! You have to try them they were ALL so delicious! I did share!
Anyway we had a blast - thank you so much Elvina and Anne for making us feel like we have lived with you guys for ever and we were so comfortable and welcome - what date was the next one he he.

Now after that - I still have been busy in my scrap room trying to get more out of the klic N Kut.
I will post a picture of what I have done when i get them finished. But I also saw a card i really liked and the front was made from the shillioutte machine but I though how hard can that be? Answer - VERY lol when you don't know how but this wonderful lady Sandy made me video tutoral and posted it on her blogg - wow talk about easy when you know how!
Thanks so much Sandy you are a STAR!

Well don't want to dribble on so will leave it there and hopefully I will be back with some scrapbooking to show you as we have in the Heidi Swapp Invisables and I want to have a play - if I can drag myself away from the Klic N kut - cause Bev if you are reading - we are now Friends that machine and I!

Oh and the new Whiff of Joy stamps have shipped and are winging their way to me as we speak!

Have a great week

Gift From Me!

Good Evening

A few posts ago I asked if any one wanted a gift from me, so i thought I would show you what I made.

This bookmark and treat bag was made for Sandra I had fun making the treat box and filling it with chocolates - probably not as much fun as Sandra had eating them lol (but to be honest I did eat a few too!). And the book mark was fun to make to, can't tell you how many times I had to pick the slippery little beads up off the floor!

And then these I made for Beck, this was a lot of fun the "Magic Box" was so much fun to make and I followed the tutorial from the magic box lady- wow check out the link this lady is super talented!

This is the box once it Explodes, hard to see but it looked good when it was open - I found it depended on how you "packed" the box up as to if it opens how it is meant to.

The flower on the top of the box is Prima we still have one or two tins of those left and the butterfly's are on acetate they are a sticker because I didn't have the right size stamp.

The image is Magnolia stamped on the box, I just love these and with enough support we could start bringing them into the country. Let me know if you are interested. Also the flowers on the chocolate box are Green Tara and we have just had a huge parcel of these arrive.

Also here is a card made with the new whiff of joy stamps and some of the new Green Tara flowers, we have some of these new stamps on the way to us - so again if you are interested let me know or watch our web site for them to come into stock.
Also we have a HUGE range of charms available so check out our web site for these also or give me a call and come on in and have a look!
Well that's all from me for now - hope you are having a great week!

Catch you again soon.
