Fun in the Sun

Hello everyone

My last post for the year over at All About Scrapbooks went up yesterday, and I finished the year with a summer themed page as we enjoy the Summer holidays over the Christmas/New Year period. 

Fun in the Sun

Love the cute sun rays on this October Afternoon paper, I cut it up and layered it over the printed text paper to give it a bit of depth, before layering up the other papers and photos of this fun day we had up in Townsville visiting my sister and the kids cousins! 

There are a couple of close-ups and list of products used over at the All About Scrapbooks blog

Thanks to everyone for visiting over the last year, wishing you all a safe and healthy 2016, enjoy the New Years festivities and sparing a thought for those who have to work tonight like me! 

Till next year

A little bit of Christmas

Hello everyone

Popping in before the year is out to show some Christmas themed layouts I have created for All About Scrapbooks, both for the blog and for our December crop day. 

My first layout is from the December crop day class at All About Scrapbooks:

This was a fun and simple double page layout to get those Christmas Morning photos scrapped! So easy with a few strips of paper and Simple Stories Elements stickers, a 2Crafty chipboard title and some sequins to bling it up a bit!

Then I created these simple cards with the leftover pieces

Another Christmas layout I shared this month was using this super cute paper in non tradtitional Christmas colours. When I saw this cute reindeer paper I knew it would be perfect with this photo from a few Christmases ago!

You can see more close-ups and products used over at the All About Scrapbooks blog.

Crate Paper Shine for AAS


I've had the pleasure of creating a couple of layouts using the brilliant Shine Collection by Crate Paper over at the All About Scrapbooks blog this month. So many fun colours in this collection inspired me to design two birthday layouts!

My first layout - Best Day Ever

Love, love this photo I took of my son on his 10th Birthday! So fun and he had a wonderful day, calling it the Best Day Ever - so I took that as a sign to use the fab wood veneer piece in the collection as my title. The numbers paper was perfection too, as it was numbers 1-10 and I was able to cut out a large 10 from the paper to use as an embellishment

My second layout using this collection is also a birthday themed layout, though this person isn't quite so thilled!

Party Hat

This is Harry on his second birthday which is a few days after Zane's (based on a guess as he is a rescue pup). As you can probably tell, Harry is not a fan of having hats put on him. Thankfully he was resting on the lounge when I attempted this, so he is not too thrilled but at least he didn't try to eat the hat! 

The pinky red of my lounge & blue in Harrys hat made this paper collection the perfect choice and I've added some fun yellow to the mix too.

Both layouts can be seen over at the All About Scrapbooks blog; here and here.

Thanks for stopping by

Echo Park Wild Life

Hello everyone

Two layouts created for All About Scrapbooks using the fabulously outdoorsy Wild Life Collection by Echo Park. 


To create this layout I used a plain wood grain paper and a Crafter's Workshop mask - Aspen Trees, which I have inked over to create my background paper. I then used these gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard pieces that match with the berries in the white paper and inked these in a combination of orange, green and brown inks, before adding some more embellishments in oranges, greens and browns. 

My second layout is titled, Happy Campers

I've used this cool background and added some sequins and tiny stars to the background. For my layout design I wanted to keep all the main elements contained in the circle, including the title and subtitles which I have attached to the circle frame itself.

You can see close ups of both these layouts over at the All About Scrapbooks blog.
