march @ scrap the boys...

A new month means a brand new challenge at Scrap the Boys!! 

 We have a fun sketch challenge this month and I have used a mix of  Kaisercraft's Shine Bright collection to capture a candid moment of Cayden enjoying some game time with his dad.

 I love working with layers, and loved using this mix of cool grays, bold black and whites with a bright pop of yellow :)

Head over to the blog to check out the amazing work form the rest of the design team, and don't forget to upload you layouts by the end of the month to go in running to win this month's awesome prizes!

project life week 7...

I've got another layout to share tonight :) once again featuring the Love Life Daily Diary Kit from 

I shared a few tips about the type of  'formula' I use when putting my project life pages together in my original post if you'd like to take a look. 

Because I was documenting Valentine's week I went with a bit of a love theme throughout my pages and included one of the fun variations on a confetti shaker card which I originally shared in this post

These were a couple of the other confetti heart shaker cards I also created. 

I'll have more project life shares later in the week. 
Thanks for stopping by xx

project life week 6...

Hi again :) I've been a busy scrapper and have another week to share, this time using the gorgeous Love Life Daily Diary Kit from 

There are more close up photos in my original post, along with details about how I was able to use both the front and back of this particular heart card even though I only had one card.

Thanks for stopping by xx

project life week 5...

Hi again, I'm back with week 5 and I have to say that after a lot of empty pages in my previous two years of doing project life, it feels great to be so much more on track this year!

I have once again used the gorgeous January Pocket Life kit from Scrappy Canary
to document this week. 

I was inspired by the February sketch challenge to use up all of those paper scraps I couldn't bare to part with to create some fun backgrounds for my photos. 

As always you can find close up photos along with more details in my original post

Don't forget that we are sharing the love at Scrappy Canary with all our friends :)

project life week 4...

Hi there :) I'm having a bit of a blog catch up tonight and am starting with a post I recently shared over on the Scrappy Canary blog documenting week four of my 2015 album.

 I have once again used the lovely January Pocket Life kit and love that I was able to achieve quite a different feel than my week 3 spread by using a slightly different mix of colours.

  I shared close up photos and details over in my original post, but here are some of my faves...

february @ scrap the boys...

The second part of the February reveals are up on the Scrap the Boys blog. The challenge this month is "Out of their mouths." We all know that kids come out with the darnedest things, so this month it's all about the things our boys say. 

My little guy is obsessed with Lego and superheros and is always telling us random super hero facts which I began jotting down so I could capture these little moments on a layout.  

Here's a closer look at what he told me while playing one day :) I have used a mix of Amy Tangerine's Stitched collection as well as a fun title and stencil for my background from Flutterby's Designs

Check out the first part of the February reveal on the blog and be sure to upload your layouts by the end of the month for a chance to win this month's awesome prizes. 

choosing the right colour combo...

Hi, I've got a project life layout over on the brand new PL Junkies blog to share. 

I put together a fun colour combo for this layout and would love to see how you would use it on your projects!

You will find close up details as well as a few tips that help me select a colour combo
 for my layouts over on the original post

Thanks for stopping by xx

project life week 3...

I've been a busy scrapper and am back with another share, this time using the beautiful January Kits from Scrappy Canary.
There are lots of lovely colours in these kits and I love that the elements seemed be a perfect match for all my photos.

Here's a closer look at the right hand side - you can see more detailed pics on my original post on the Scrappy Canary blog.

I am currently working on week 4 using this kit, and hope you'll stop by again next week to have a peek :)

project life week 2 and an insert...

Hi again, I'm still playing with my awesome Daily Diary kit from and loving it :)This is the third double spread I have completed and still have heaps of product left!!
I shared week 2 on this post but just in case you missed it here it is again...
 I have included close up pics along with info on how I have used several of the elements in the original post, so head there if you'd like a closer look.

I also created an insert for a day at the coast to go with week one...

 again you'll need to head over to the NoelMignon blog for a closer look, but as you can see the kit is very versatile and can help you create a variety of different looks.

Thanks for stopping by xx


project life and a little organisaion...

I've made a start on my 2015 project life album and happy to have completed week one using the awesome Hey Girl Daily Diary kit from
  I absolutely love the fun patterns and colours in this kit and have shared close-ups and details about the various elements over on the NoelMigon Blog, so head to the blog if you'd like more details.
Before I began this year's album I spent a bit of time organising all my supplies in my new Ikea, Kallax shelving unit which I shared on this post.
I purchased the drawer and door options for this unit and have used a variety of clear containers and baskets to keep my supplies organised. The black and white fabric cubes are from Target, and the white baskets were found at Woolworths.

My favourite storage solution are these photo storage cases - they come with 12 individual cases designed to hold 4x6" photos but I have used mine to store all my project life cards and co-ordinating pieces as well as one case dedicated to various paper tags and embellishments sorted by colour. 

I purchased mine from Lincraft but have also seen them available online under the name 'Iris Photo Storage'.

 I am also using a few containers with divided compartments to store washi tapes, flairs and paperclips and one just for wood veneers. I found the bottom two in the hardware section of Kmart but also bought the top one from the storage section at Bunnings.

I have filled one of my fabric storage cubes with clear A4 file cases (found in some supermarkets & office supply stores) and am using these to hold various stickers, enamel dots as well as a few for my cutting dies which I have placed onto magnetic sheets.
  I had such a great response to the post and had a lot of questions about what else I have stored in my shelving unit so thought I would share a couple more pics.

I have sorted my pocket page protectors by design in D ring albums and have used another album to store my masks and stencils.

I am using one of my CTMH storage cases to store various inks and mists, and a larger one to hold all my clear stamps and embossing folders (sorted in Avery Elle storage pockets)

It feels great to be a bit more organised and it's really saving me a lot of time when I want to find a particular product.
