Morning everyone on this very wet day here in NSW.
Sitting here thinking about all the sadness that is going on at the moment and my heart goes out to those suffering in Ukraine and of course the floods that are happening in Australia.

So hopefully this might bring a little smile to your face

 Unicorns are such a special creature for most little girls and this one was created for my granddaughter. Stenciling, texture paste, Finnabairs liquid paints, chipboard, resin and of course flowers galore.  

Doing a mixed media piece is a little different for me but looking at my works I actual do alot of them but never show them. I will in the coming posts. 

Thanks for stopping by

Hello and welcome back.
This is a layout I created last year for a class in my shop but with COVID restrictions it was never held. Hoping that I will be able to hold the class this year sometime.

I wanted to use lots of bits and pieces, a real shabby looking layout for a simple but gorgeous photo pf my eldest.
I am over the moon how well it turned out.

So these are some of the products used"
Mintay papers
Prima flowers
Kaisercraft frames
AALL & Create stencil
2Crafty chipboard

Thanks for stopping by
till next time
stay safe

Hello and welcome to 2022. Its been such a long time since I have been here but a busy shop and busy family life makes it hard to get everything done.

So for the start of the year I have created this layout on the newest arrival to our family, our beautiful twin grandsons.  The gorgeous little men arrived at the start of September and with COVID I was not able to meet them till Christmas. Having 2 means no sharing is required, which is a great bonus. I am sure you will be seeing more of them in the future. 

For this layout I have used the Scrapboys paper range Bedtime Tales.
 I loved the soft green and creams in this one which just went perfect with the photo.
2Crafty Chipboard, Finnabair Waxes and liquid Acrylic paints and lots of flowers from different collections. I love to use my stash up when creating.

A few close up for you

My Girls

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by.

Today I'm sharing an older layout that I did for a very special lady which I hope you can grab a little inspiration from.

I haven't had time to do a lot of crafting lately, why?? because I am  in the middle of relocating my little scrapbook shop into a bigger and hopefully better premises. We are planning to be open in the New Year so as you can imagine I am very busy. 

Enough about that lets get back to the layout.

I have no story of the photo as I did do this for a friend for her wall.

The paper is an older one from 49&Market as are the flowers. I used some lace and doilies in the back ground too. A little stamping to finish off the page and this was a very simple layout for me.

The lady that this was for was over the moon with the finished page with her gorgeous grandchildren in the photograph.

Cheers and till next time
