Well you know how I just LOVE LOVE LOVE MFT???? This peek-a-boo chevron die is AWESOME!!!!! and the clear MFT Seasonal Sentiments are PERFECT!!!  
I think I will be using that die for quite a few projects....!  They have all these products at Scrapbook Boutique (maybe drop a few hints that they DO GIFT VOUCHERS......)
Have a very Merry Christmas! xx

It's your day!

WOW so much has been happening here, I completely forgot to post my card!! I've been looking on Pinterest for some TO DO printables to get my life back on track.....
Anyway a quick card ..... If you'd like to reproduce, details are on the Scrapbook Boutique site.  Just looking at it now, I think I would probably measure and mark before stamped away willy nilly ( like I've done here!) Love the rainbow of colours and LOVE LOVE LOVE the neons from Hero Arts!! STILL maintaining NUMBER 2 on my favs list!!  I think I will do a top 10 of my favourites and MUST HAVE'S for 2013 before the years out.


thanks for popping in! :)

Here is MY take on the challenge......


Just joined in the Tim Holtz's chemistry 102 and thought I'd have a play with the distress stains.....Yes HOOKED!
Love the colourful theme of this months picture, Blue is not really traditionally Christmas....  Loved playing with the stains on gloss paper and I have lots left over as I used a few colour schemes... stay tuned!

Anyway, thanks for popping in,

HAPPY HALLOWEEN



Hello Happy Halloween to you! 

Not really celebrated here in Australia, but it is getting popular with the young kids around here.  I am surprised is isn't as popular as the states as free lollies (candy) would appeal to most!  

Had a little play with my Distress Inks and gloss paper. I really love this technique and mixing my colours.  No two backgrounds will look the same!

Had fun with my Memory Box Dies and made my spider a RED BACK!

Just a note!

Hi There!, just popping in to show a quick card from Scrapbook Boutique Another cute little die from Memory Box!!  I love the 3D effect of this card and a great way to use all your little flowers!  I decided to emboss the sentiment as I just wasn't happy with just the stamped image.  It just wasn't bold enough and I wanted to keep it simple and not have a tag or vellum on the card.  I have raised the basket to accommodate the flowers and im really happy with the result.  Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to see instructions on "how to" and products used.
thanks for popping in x

You are Amazing!

Hello and Happy Monday!  I had the best weekend!! I had time to myself!!! (NEVER HAPPENS!) and I was quite productive and then equally Lazy too.  They do say, however, time you enjoy wasting is NOT wasted time.......

Anyway, on to more important things...... Had a little play with this La La Land Heart Tree oooh I just love it!  I have die cut a few in different colours but I absolutely loved the turquoise card stock and the yellow sets it off nicely.  You can't really see but I used glossy accents on the heart and raised with a foam dot and it looks fabulous  ( I really should take more photos....)
Scrapbook Boutique have all the details and products used to make this card, AND a huge stocktake sale at the moment too!! BONUS!

thanks for popping in :)
