Here goes nothing…

I have wanted to start a blog for such a long time, so here it is. The idea behind this blog is to share my scrapbooking, card making, patchwork, sewing, and other crafty endeavours. In between the never ending loads of washing and dishes that having a toddler in the house creates and reading hundreds of Thomas the Tank Engine books, I love to escape to my craft room for a few minutes of solitude.

White… With 1 – Bayou Blue

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2018 is getting off to a great start for you, wherever you may be. It is sunny and hot here in Perth today, and hubby has just disappeared down the beach for a while with our toddler so I am enjoying total silence here (ah, bliss!). I'm here today …

Deck the Halls with December Daily…

Or boughs of Holly if you prefer! But here in Australia it's a bit warm for that, plus December Daily is less prickly. I'm just putting the finishing touches on my week 3 spreads for December Daily but thought first I'd pop in here and share what I put together for week 2. I'm getting …

Oh Christmas Layout – Off the rails December Challenge

Yes, another Christmas themed challenge, hooray! This one has a beautiful mood board, and the theme is white, with one other colour of my choice. I decided to go with... gold! I just loved the way this Pinkfresh Studio paper paired with the white card stock, and their gold foil wood veneer embellishments and thought …

Christmas Cards – December Kaisercraft Challenge

I've been using Kaisercraft Papers to create the majority of my Christmas cards for years now, so the hard part of this challenge was really just deciding which ones to use and what to create. I settled on a combination of the 'Frosted' Collection, a free cut file from Paper Issues, and some ribbon, bling …

Happy December Daily – Week 1 is in the Books!

I can't believe I'm already one third of the way through my December Daily album, and that means that December is already more than 1/3 over! Eek, really better get that Christmas shopping finished! Here's a look at my opening pages, and the pages/spreads I've competed for the first week of December Daily 2017. This …
