Some Layouts


I would like to share a couple of my older layouts with you.

This is a photo of Amy, my lovely little daughter.  She dressed up as a fairy for Halloween 2008.  We were in South Africa for a family wedding.  I love this picture so much, and it really didn't need much, just a nice title, some ric-rac ribbon and my all time favorite and often featured, prima and silk flowers!!!

This picture was taken soon after we moved to Dubai.  I just love the way Amy processed the sand...I printed my journalling on to cardstock, then cut it out and placed it on the page.  I created a "filmstrip" on the left hand size, by printing pictures the same size, attaching to cardstock and trimming accordingly.  I attached paper clips to the "filmstrip".

Thanks for your continued support during the "baron times" on the blog while I have been moving house!!!

Be creative!!



It is so. I am done really, I am done, finished unpacking!!!  My new home is awesome, I am such a happy bunny!!!  I have a lovely garden, the grass is still growing in, but will be awesome in a couple of weeks.  I have a lovely craftroom, with an en-suite bathroom!!!  Before you drool, I have set up camp in the maids room (hence the bathroom attached!!)

I have a string of visitors arriving from Istanbul, London and Johannesburg within the next week, so I will be busy tour guiding around Dubai.  I can't wait to show my family (the ones who haven't been here yet) my home!!!

I have a few projects up my sleeve, including a video tutorial  with products available from Creative Hands.  It is guaranteed to brighten your craft area and make you smile....keep watching!!!

Please keep your layouts coming.  I would love to showcase your work in the Follower's Gallery!!!

Happy Scrapping

Just checking in


Just dropping by to let you know that I haven't forgotten about my blog, or any of you who pop by to see what is new....I am moving house (well, moved house today) and my whole life is upside down.  I haven't even gotten near the boxes which contain my scrapping stuff :(

As soon as I get the boxes unpacked, and a have a little bit of order in my life, as in the words of Arnie, I'LL BE BACK!!!

Thanks for your continued support!!

Fun with Prima


I recently did a page using a lot of prima products, and now can kick myself for not doing a tutorial on the page.  I have had to resolve to show you the page and elements, without the step by step tutorial.....

Happy Scrapping!

Lil Bees Boutique September Exclusive Kit


I had the pleasure of picking up my September Exclusive kit from Lil Bees Boutique yesterday.  Wow oh wow...what lovely goodies in this months kit!!!

The travel size Glossy Accents is such a good idea, no more carting your huge bottle of Glossy Accents around with you when you go on crops!!

The prima flowers and masks are stunning, will make any project super special as well as a few treats from the Tim Holtz collection!!!

I know I will be using the clock very soon in one of my layouts.  We all know how much I love my clocks and compasses!!

Here is a pic of my stash....don't delay and get yours!!

Happy Scrapping!


SwissgirlDesigns Stamps...I have them in my sticky paws!!

Hello fellow crafters!!

I received my stamps from SwissgirlDesigns a couple of days ago.  I am in the middle of moving house so time to blog has been seriously shaved!!!

The process of ordering was simple and it took an incredible 5 days to get here from the States!!!

I love the stamps so much and cannot wait to start playing with them!!!  I will post layout ideas as soon as they are done!!!

Happy Scrapping!!!

Scrapbooking Classifieds on Lil Bees Boutique


Lil Bees Boutique has come up with a fantastic idea!!  A classifieds section on the blog.  Here you can display scrapping stash and tools that you would like to sell or swap!!

I for one have a pile of stash and a few tools that I no longer use, and will be posting my classified on the site for sure.

What a good idea to clean out some scrapping clutter and have a little extra cash to invest in some new fantastic scrapping goodies!!

Well done Lil Bees - very inspirational!
