October Challenge – About Me Album

This month I’ve been running a little challenge … to get out from behind the camera and record some of your own life.  Every day there is a prompt (you can find them on my website blog HERE, and Facebook page HERE).

Day 1 Handbag

Every day there is a graphic, like this one, and there are lots of different ways you can use these prompts.  If you’re really into Instagram, you could use that as a platform and use photos to record your answers.  I have fallen behind posting the pics to Instagram, as hubby took my smart camera on a 2 week vacation … but will catch up tomorrow!   Or you might like to create a mini album, a photo book, or incorporate the prompts into your Project 365 or Project Life album throughout the year.  Or you could blog, journal or talk about your experiences with your kids.

Scrap It TV Season 7 premiere!

TV4ME STV7 copy

I am beyond excited to announce that Season 7 of Scrap It TV will be airing next week.  You can see it on free to air television, 4ME (channels 64 & 74, it depends on your region).  You will be able to find free project sheets for most of my segments under the Project Sheets & Videos tab on my website (look for ‘Season 7′) after each show goes to air.

I look forward to seeing the episodes as much as everyone else, because I just do a few days of filming, then it’s in the hands of our producer and off to 4ME.  I have no idea which segment is going to be on, and love seeing segments by our other presenters!

Scrapbooking, cardmaking, home decor, hints, tips, tricks and projects … papercraft galore.  I really hope you enjoy it :)

Discontinued Sweet Stamp Shop sets

Sweet Stamp Shop have discontinued a bunch of stamps today, so I thought I’d show you all the discontinued stamps that I have in stock.  When these are gone, they are gone for good.  I have a small number, maybe one, maybe two, maybe three!  You can find them in the shop HERE, and there are 4 pages to scroll through.

I do ship internationally, so if you’re in the USA, UK or any other country, just drop me an email or PM via Facebook HERE, and I’ll be happy to quote you for shipping :)

Tiddly Inks – Make It Sparkle

This months Tiddly Inks challenge is ‘Make it Sparkle’

Anniversary 3

I have used Wryn, Heartfelt Love for my card today.  She might not look super sparkly yet … but …

2014-09-27 15.57.34

I used Twinkling H2O’s for the the hearts (Pink Azalea), and my Spica Black pen for the bows on each heart.  It’s subtle, but it’s sparkling!  This card is for my cousin and her husband’s first anniversary.

Tiddly Inks – Fabby Friday

2014-09-26 23.18.10

It’s Fabby Friday at Tiddly Inks!

I’m actually starting to realise how clean & simple my crafting style really is.  I have so many ideas in my head that I need to keep them simple so I have time to get the all done!  But doesn’t this striped Pebbles paper just make that simple colouring sing?

2014-09-26 23.18.18

Copic colours used here are E11, E13, E15, E17, E18, and W00, W0, W01

My Wild Child

This is the stamp I used, called My Wild Child, you can find it HERE.
The greeting is part of another set HERE.

Tiddly Inks Challenge – Fairy Fun

This week’s challenge on the Tiddly Inks blog is Fairy Fun!  You can find it HERE.  For my card I used Fairy Teacher, and I will be making a whole lot more of these cards.  Both my girls get incredible support from staff at their schools, and I am brainstorming special end of year thank yous.

Fairy 1

Copic colours used for this are:
Lime: YG00, YG01, YG03, YG05, YG06, YG07
Skin: E50, E51, E53, R02
Purple: BV0000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV04
Books: E40, E41, E43 (pages), W00, W0, W1, W2, W3 (covers)
Gold spica for book corners, Clear spica on wings

Fairy 3

I’m not sure if the clear spica pen really shows … but I did use it on her wings … honest!  There’s a tiny touch of Gold Spica on the book corners as well.

Fairy 2

Looking for this lovely stamp set … at $4 for the digi with all these, I’d call that a bargain!

Teacher Fairy

… and … if you come on over and join in the Tiddly Inks challenge for some Fairy Fun.  Remember … if you use a Tiddly Inks stamp, you’re in the running for a great prize :)

Tiddly Inks Fabby Friday – Hello Pet

It’s my first Fabby Friday as a Tiddly Inks Design Team member … and here it is … ta-daaaaaaa …

Dragon 2

I chose the Hello Pet set … oh, my, how I love this digi stamp set!  I have quite a few friends who are Game of Thrones fans (books & series), which is why I bought it in the first place.  But with the release of the last Hobbit movie featuring Smaug (played so ably by Benedict Cumberbatch), I realised it suits all sorts of historic, mythological and sci fi peeps!!!

Hello Pet

You can find this digi stamp set HERE.

Dragon 1

Dragon 3

I have used some bazil cardstock and paper from a fairytale themed stack.  The greeting is part of the Hello Pet set.  There is twill tape at the top, and Kaisercraft droplets scattered across the bookmark.  I like these embellishments for bookmarks, as they don’t damage the pages of my book.  I have used Tea Dye distress ink around the cardstock & pattern paper, and Peeled Paint on the greeting block.

Copic Colours for the dragon:
Green: YG61, YG63, YG67, G99
Orange tips: YR00, YR01, YR02
Horns & nails: E40, E41, E42, E43
