DT Challenge - Frills and Lace

It is that time again!!!  The talented ladies of the JoSoCrafty Design Team have been asked to come up with a layout using Frills and Lace.  It can be quite difficult to do, especially if you don't do many girly pages.....


I love the bold colors used in this layout.....


Once again, fantastic colors, and what a pretty subject to scrap :)



Thanks for visiting and don't forget to send me your pages inspired by the layouts on this blog :D

New Layout - YOU

Hey crafters :D

Just a quick post to share a layout I did recently.

I had so much fun creating this page using the Prima March BAP (Build A Page).

Every month Prima released a page sketch and everyone is invited to show off their pages.  They include a fantastic prize for the winner :D (Who doesn't need a little extra Prima Stash!!)

As always, I love to see your pages, so mail a low res image of your new creation to and I will upload your page to the Followers Gallery Page of this blog :D.  

Happy Scrapping :D


New Scrapping Site - SCRAPBOOK MENTOR


Some exciting news just in!!  Rahel of SwissGirl Designs has launched a new site called Scrapbook Mentor.  Regular readers of the blog will know that I love Rahel's tutorials and scrapping style (not to mention her amazing acrylic stamp range!!!)  It is a members only forum which offers some amazing tutorials and tips and tricks using your scrapbook stash.

The site offers the following:

  • 2 New Videos Tutorials Every Month
  • 3 New Articles On Various Scrapbooking Topics Every Month
  • 1 Open Question & Answer Webinar Every Month

What I like about this site is that the video tutorials are not time based, so you can watch them at your leisure, which is great for those of us who are outside of the US time zones.  

Within the forum, there is a place for you to introduce yourself, so you can get to know the members on the forum, as well as a place for you to upload your blog along with a heap of other discussion areas.  And who wouldn't want a stand a chance to win regular giveaways :D

Scrapbook Challenges ABC's of Me - N

Hello readers :D

I have been a little quiet lately.  I apologize , it has been school holidays and I haven't had much computer time.

I have been busy on a little crafting project together with my 2 wonderful children.  I will share mine with you soon.  I just want to do a little more work on it :D

The ABC's of Me challenge on Scrapbook Challenges is so much fun.  You scrap a page about yourself using each letter of the alphabet and end up with 26 awesome pages about many of you actually scrap about yourself without being prompted to do so by these sort of scrapping challenges, or if you are required to take along a picture of yourself for a class???

I have recently done the letter N and set the challenge to use a repeated picture on the page.  Here is my take on the page.

Be sure to log into Scrapbook Challenges, become a member if you are not already (no strings, just access to many talented ladies on the DT and not to mention the plentitude of talented ladies who submit layouts to the challenges as well as their personal online galleries:D

Happy Scrapping :D

My Favorite Thing Challenge & Guest Designer


This week our challenge was to scrap our favorite thing.  It could be your pet, your partner, your house....whatever you loved most.

There is a twist with this month's challenge though.  I was lucky enough to get a guest designer to participate in this challenge.

You all know how much I love SwissGirl Design stamps, and the amazing work done by Rahel, the designer of the stamps.  Well, she was gracious enough to submit a page for this month's challenge :D :D

Thanks Rahel, your support is so appreciated :D

Here is what our Rahel and the DT came up with :






Thanks for visiting and I look forward to see your submissions on your Favorite Thing :D:D

Happy Scrapping
