Geometric crazy

It's been quite a while since I've fancied a Kaisercraft collection. They just haven't caught my eye....until now! I love the Shine Bright collection. I did some crazy different things with this layout and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Nothing like an awesome cut file (love the geometric feel to this)! And some painstaking fussy cuts :/



I love the black, white and yellow craze at the moment. I will be milking it for as long as I can. I added very little embellishment to the layout as the papers did all the hard work. But the coloured mesh was completely inspired by the amazeballs Anne Patterson. She created the most amazing page for Kraft + with yellow mesh and I fell in love with the stuff immediately.

Journaling on the back but as the title suggests it's just a little reflection on the daddy/daughter thing these two have :) Pretty awesome.

D-Lish Scraps challenge

I spent an awesome afternoon with some scrappy friends and managed to create a page! Now before anyone jumps to conclusions, finishing pages with mates doesn't happen very often :)

I put together what you would call my own kit - papers, embellies and letters that would fit into one pizza box. I was limited to what I threw in there which really is quite good because it forces you to work with what you have.

I joined in the D-Lish Scraps challenge this month



Now I'm not a big fan of beachy themes - starfish and seashells and all that jazz. But that didn't stop me. The colours are beautiful and I was inspired by the cushions and the scenic photograph of the beach.


I enjoyed adding a bit of stamping to my page, something I haven't done for a while. A simple layout because pretty much my style these days. Oh, how delightful is the smile word? These are Dear Lizzy watercolour words and they are simply gorgeous. They were part of my Scrappy Canary kit which I am enjoying at the moment.

A new challenge - Kraft +

It's been a while since I've scrapped a page. Things are going by at a very fast pace since the kids went back to school. I still have more study to do myself and I'm trying to get it done over the next few weeks. Of course, when things get hectic, my crafting suffers :(

Anyway, I'm slowly getting back into my craft space and decided to tackle the Kraft + challenge started by the amazing Sandra.

It's their very first challenge and the colours of the mood board are beautiful.



And to ease myself back into crafting, I decided to make a tag inspired by the Mango Breeze colours.


I tell you, I need lessons in photographing tags. I think I took about 100 shots of the damn thing and I'm STILL not happy with it!

Definitely something different from me. I used Scrapmatts goodies I received for a challenge win and I had tons of fun painting them. The question is: can I manage to use a hot glue gun without burning myself - ever?
