Crochet Flowers - @ this moment

My mum sent me these pretty little crochet flowers that she made and I have been dying to put them on paper!  For this LO I used items from the Scrapagogo June Kit and a few extra bits.

I cut the grey pattern paper to 11 3/4 and then took my scissors to distress the edges of both my background papers.

Using my craft knife I cut slits in the top layer to peel back.  I used a wooden orange stick to pull back and create a rolled effect.  I used distress ink on all the edges.

Products I used:

Foam Thickers by American Crafts (ScrapaGoGo kit)
LilyBee Design - Victoria Park - Richmond Row (ScrapaGoGo kit)
LilyBee Design - Queen Bee (ScrapaGoGo kit)
ScrapaGoGO exclusive stamp
Metal camera charm - ScrapaGoGo kit
Blue Heart Button - ScrapaGoGo kit
Journalling Card - Exclusive to ScrapaGoGo June kit
I30 Sticker - Dear Lizzy Sticker Book (American Crafts)
Sweet Sunshine Sticker - Amy Tangerine Sketchbook Sticker book
Crochet flowers - My mum's own handy work :)
Green buttons - my own stash
Metal swirl paperclip - my own stash
Pearls by Mark Richards

June Kit from ScrapaGoGo

Towards the end of this year it will be our 5th wedding anniversary and I am only now starting on our honeymoon album!
I used the ScrapaGoGo June kit to start this LO and then finished it off with die cut bits and the cute stamp set from the same Amy Tangerine Line (American Crafts)

I was inspired by a LO from Ronda Palazzari in her book ART OF LAYERS. Our honeymoon started on a complete disaster and I was looking for a way to add some hidden journalling. If you are looking for some inspiration I can definitely recommend this book!

Thanks for reading!

Mini House

Today I want to share this super cute mini printer tray house with you. I loved working on this little project. You can find one here:

Products I used:
Mini house printer tray
Mini Clear stamps from Keizer Krafts, Pearl Beads from Mark Richards. Martha Stewart Punch
Paper from American Crafts, Dear Lizzy 6x6 pad.  The itty bitty button I found on a shopping trip to Sugar and Spice (Barleylands). I found some random metal embellies on my desk and they were a perfect fit! Letter stickers from October Afternoon Mini Market.  I stuck them to white card stock first and then I cut them out before adhering with glossy accents.

Thanks for visiting!

Our Yorkie

Louie is incredibly funny!  I have had lots of pets during my life time, but Louie certainly has a personality like no other! This is my first Yorkie and I am just so impressed by how smart they are.
When I captured Louie licking his lips while waiting to be awarded his treat I knew this photo was going to be one of my favourites of him.


For this LO I used:  Martha Stewart Punch, Basic Grey Basics paper (background), 6x6 Dear Lizzy pad (Amercian Crafts) Chipboard Letters (American Crafts), Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, Basic Grey Clear stamps, Tim Holtz Distress Marker in Worn Lipstick, Papermani Shimmer dots, Elle Studio die cuts, Tim Holtz ticket, washi tape (SMASH) and My Minds Eye Funny Stamps - Happy Days.

Scrap Paper

These two LO's are the result of trying to get through my box of scrap paper (left overs) to create pages.  I have loads and try to do at least one LO from these a week. This is the idea anyway - if it is going to stick, that is another question.

ScrapaGoGo Kit - May

When I received my kit I thought it was just the right paper to close off my 10 year's working in the city by documenting a few pages about my time spent in the corporate world.  Here is one I made today.
