Over at Scrap and Stamp Saturday the challenge is a lovely (and challenging sketch:). I decided to swop the circles with some beautiful frames - and I really like the result:). the photos make me smile (and crave ice cream:)!!) The wonder of being 5!!
Remember to use a stamp on your LO! I stamped my journalling arrow, random sentiments and the funky BFF title;)Grab your stamps and play along!

Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch #3

I love playing with the Saturday Sketches over at Kaisercraft. This was sketch number 3 for this month......
......and this is my take on the sketch.

I actually used four different ranges from Kaisercraft on the one LO as all the colours and embellishments matched perfectly! I love the detailed frame and the quote is so perfect for our little family!

Grab your supplies and scrap a few LO's with sketches - works like a charm when you need someone else to do the thinking for a bit:)

Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch May#2

Hop on over to kaisercraft and play along with the Saturday Sketch Competition. This is the sketch for May #2!

......and this is my take on the sketch!

I just loved the colours of the range and the cuteness of the photo's just had to be scrapped!Instead of strips of ribbon or paper I used mosaic tiles to create the accent piece in the left bottom corner. I love the way some of them shimmer a bit and when added with Glossy accents the glue is also not visible behind the transparent squares.
The circle accents is punched from the printed paper and a Kaisercraft pearl added to add some dimension. I've also added a mosaic tile to the number 5 - showing her age at the time of the photos.

Grab your Kaisercraft paper and play along:)

Cardalicous @ Scraphouse

I presented a carding class at Scraphouse on Saturday, 7 May. Had a stunning group of ladies attending and we had LOADS of fun!


We all have tons of scraps from pages we completed and I'm trying to teach a few tips and tricks to convert these into cards with little effort and lots of fun!


This is the teaser on what we did, I will post the cards a little later (have two more classes to teach:) and you can play along with your scraps;)

Old Supplies

This is a challenge we can all participate in:). Who doesn't have old supplies!! The challenge at Scrap and Stamp Saturday is to use your old supplies - and off course at least one stamp:)

I used two swirly stamps on the edges of my design and added little blue and pink flowers to the swirls. I've had these flowers for nearly 10 years (bought them in Bangkok!!) and I know most of us has these somewhere in our stash (when I started scrapbooking 11years ago there was not as much going around embellishment wise and we had to be creative!!).

The photo was one of the first I took with my new camera - it was really dark in the living room and with my old camera I would've had a crappy looking photo - I was sooo impressed when this one came out as beautiful - yes it was taken on Automatic setting - give a chap a chance:).

Hope you play along - dive into those ancient supplies and get creative!

Scrapping with Margie

These are the lovely LO's we created with Margie at Spier!! I loved the paper choice and all the elements we added to the pages. Once again I used the basics and added my own twist to the LO's:) Playing with the Pearl Mists and Inks - LOADS of fun!! Crepe paper is something most of us forgot to play with and this frame around the photo is absolutely gorgeous! The candy floss tinted doilie is just perfect with the paper colours. The double page has lots of little elements and different bits and pieces. We spritzed the background kraft with stunning pink Pearl mist and it looks really yummy!! I just loved the roses and clocks and little elements all over!

Hope you're inspired to play!

Going through some older LO's this one caught my eye. We did the LO with Heidi Swapp a few years back (actually two LO's I combined). The photo is the Pieta marble sculpture from Michelangelo in the Vatican. It is the one place I felt so touched and the marvel of this amazing sculpture will stay with me forever - it is as if you are there in the moment to feel the raw emotion and experience a mother's love and pain. A memory I will treasure forever.

Absolutely exquisite!
