With the festive season sneaking up so quickly (I didn’t even get Christmas cards out this year) I didn’t get time to drop by and post the scrap pages from my presentation in Brisbane.

I know you will all enjoy this delight little girl and the pages I created for her.  Thanks for being my model Abby.



This is a DLO featuring this suite.  What a delight with which to work.  Loved every moment.


Until next time when I’ll post the single LO using this suite, stay happy.

I’m totally in love with ALL the DSP in the new Occasions Catalogue.  DSP has to be my fave product EVER! and the new DSP does not disappoint.  You are going to love it.

This photo, which shows our grand daughter at race day shenanigans having a great time with her friends.  So the occasion called for a bright and fun layout.  Needlepoint Nook DSP provides just that.  Oddly enough the quote comes from a Sympathy stamp set called Lasting Lily, which is a freebie coming in the annual Sale-a-bration starting in January.

Want an Occasions catalogue?  ….and a Sale-a-bration one too?  Free?  contact me now and I’ll post both out to you totally free of charge.


Recipe for Success:

Card stock – Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Old Olive Berry Burst, Whisper White

DSP – Needlepoint Nook

Stamp Set – Lasting Lily

Inks – Crumb Cake, Memento Black

Punch – 1 1/2″ circle

Until next time, stay happy!

Moving along with my presentation at Stampin’ Up! 30th birthday celebration in Brisbane I wanted today to show you the cards that I made with this fabulous stamp set and Thinlits.  *swoon*  This stamp set is a ‘must have’ for all card makers and scrapbookers.

It’s the type of stamp set that will ‘grow’ with the crafter from ‘beginner to avid’ and beyond,


There is an amazingly beautiful set of DSP that matches this stamp set.  It’s breath taking.


Until next time, stay happy,

Forever Lovely


I’m so sorry that I’ve been a little quiet here, there has been a reason.  I was asked by Stampin’ Up! to present a brand new suite of product at Onstage Brisbane at the week end.  So for the last few months I’ve been hold up in my studio secretly creating.  I was so pleased with my projects.  I loved showing them to the demonstrators that attended.  Thanks to S.U. for having the confidence in me to make on the task.

The suite I was assigned was called ‘Forever Lovely’.  Primarily it was designed for Valentine’s Day, however it’s actually so much MORE than a Valentine’s Day stamp set.  I used ti for birthday cards, I love you cards, Christmas card, Man’s card.  In the suite a stunning 12 x 12 set of DSP.  One side features designs which are romantic, soft and flowing.  The other side is graphic and bright.  Such a great stamp set that is perfect for a beginner to advanced crafter.

Over the next few weeks I’ll post each project but for now I’ve posted below the uTube of my presentation.  It features the mini album that was my favourite project.  I’ll be back in a day or two with the scrap pages and cards that I completed.



Until next time, stay happy.

I’m just loving the new Christmas catalogue from Stampin’ Up!  So when I received an order for two small mini albums each celebrating Christmas I knew I had to use this fun paper.   Fabulous to use 50% vanilla based and 50% white based.  The suite has a great stamp set buttons, adorable natural toned ribbon, thick baker’s twine, Embossing Folder, Distresssed card tin (swoon)  and chipboard accent elements.  Phew!!!  that’s quite the haul isn’t it and of course all perfectly matching to make your Christmas crafting super easy and super quick.  Like your free copy of the catalogue?  Contact me now.  Quick!!!

Here’s the first album that I made, be sure to come on back and check out the second.  It’s almost finished.  (apologies for the dodgy video, but it’s a difficult task with one hand on the iPad and one turning pages. lol.  But you’ll get the general idea.

Recipe for success:

Cardstock – Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Whisper White

DSP  – Festive Farmhouse

Ribbon – Striped burlap trim

Baker’s twine – Festive farmhouse collection

Border Punch

Welcome to my Blog!!!  So glad you decided to hop along the Global Blog Hop Scrapbooking trail, and land on my site.

The criteria for this blog hop and scrap a page was to use the following sketch.


I don’t normally work from a sketch.  The reason being I don’t particularly enjoy it, but the challenge was there and I took it up so had to go through with it!!!!  In the end I actually enjoyed the process.  Twisting things around a bit to suit me and my pics.  Added an easy waterfall to accommodate some tiny awkward pics.  Took time to journal a block and Voila!  It is done, and I am happy.  I hope you like the result.


Photo 1 showing the waterfall closed.


Photo 2 showing the first part of the waterfall open.  There are two more pages just for photos of FOOD!!!  LOL.  Thanks Mazzy, Carmel, Sian and Raelene for a fabulous few days of fun, food and laughter.
