cybercrop fun with dlish scraps...

The D-lish Scraps September Cybercrop is in full swing over at The Scrap Suite. There are 5 fun challenges as well as a bonus kids challenge along with lots of fun and games and awesome prizes up for grabs!!


Here's my challenge which is to incorporate tags onto your project.


 I used a few shipping tags from the store to create my design and used one of these as a template to cut out a 6x4" photo into two tag shapes. I really liked that this method gave this simple photo a lot more impact on my page than it would have if it had been left whole. 


I love that tags are so versatile and can be used with so many different scrapping styles. I kept mine pretty simple with just a little bit of washi tape and a few embellishments to dress them up as well as some die-cut chevrons and 'today' word for a bit more depth.   


Head over to The Scrap Suite face book group to check out all the other challenges
 and join in on all the fun :)

domesticated at scrap the boys



2 comments
Hi again, have you seen the fun September challenge at Scrap The Boys? This month is all about showing us just how 'domesticated' your boys can be. 


Like most boys, mine are not big on the whole domesticated thing, but it is nice to find a couple of kitchen helpers when I'm making dinner from time to time :)  



The photo is of my younger two boy peeling mushrooms on the kitchen bench, and I used a mix of Amy Tangerine's Plus One Collection along with some other bits and pieces from my stash.


Be sure to check out all the fabulous layouts the rest of the team have come up with for this challenge and get your entries by the end of the month to go in the running to win this months awesome prizes!

sunshine and project life with D-lish Scraps....

Hi there, just getting in a catch up post from a couple of projects I created for August over at D-lish Scraps
The first was a layout using a mix of crisp black and white with some happy yellow :)


 I loved using this colour combination and using just three colours made putting my layout together fast and easy. 


You will find the full post, along with a list of all the items I have used here.


Next up I used the D-lish Scraps Library Card Pocket Template along with more goodies from the store to help me create some pages for my Project Life album.

profiling at scrap the boys...



5 comments
A new month means a fun new challenge over at Scrap the Boys. This month's theme is all about profiling! and your challenge is to create a page about your boy, listing all the things he is interested in.

Here's what I came up with, inspired by a profile pic Cameron recently added to facebook.



I used a  free iphone frames printable to create a 'status update' type of page using a mix of Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is... collection. 


I typed out several lists of all his favourite things on tags which I have tucked into various bags and pockets. 


Be sure to check out all the fabulous examples the rest of the team has come up with, and get your layouts uploaded by the end of the month to be eligible for some great prizes!!  

mint and gold....

As soon as I saw the gorgeous Moodboard  Challenge over at Sassy Scrapper I knew I wanted to play along with the fabulous mix of mint and gold with a touch of sparkle, and I wasn't going to let a busy week get in the way ;)


Getting in just before the deadline, here's my take the challenge...

I scrapped one of my favourite summer memories of Cayden chasing after the seagulls at the beach.


I layered lots of pretty mint and shiny gold foil items 


 as well as some sparkly gold glitter - and how cute is this little flair badge from my lovely friend Sian :)

project life weeks 15 and 16...



4 comments
I realised the other day that I had quite a few pages from my project life album I still haven't shared - there are 12 all up! Starting with April, here are the first four pages using another awesome kit from Gossamer Blue.
April started with another week of grey skies and rain. My niece bought a fabulous new car, my nephew celebrated his birthday and once again my boys went fishing.

 I have continued using and altered a Simple Stories filler card to mark the start of the month - the 'week in review stamps' from the kit were awesome for adding a weekly summary to my page.

there were plenty of everyday moments to record - I added a few items from my stash to record the details.

the lovely Michelle from The Stamp Spot put me onto these fun Lawn Fawn Spring Showers dies which are awesome for all those rainy day pics - let her know if you'd like a set too! I coated the raindrops with a little glossy accents to give them some dimension.


once again there were fish on my pages ;)

The second week of April took the boys out looking at cars, and reminded us that Easter was just around the corner.

apart from the photos and all the pretty things, I love that Project Life gives me the opportunity to record little conversations and details that would otherwise be forgotten.


We made our annual trip to the forest to collect wild mushroom and berries. I have also started an insert with plenty more pics from this day, but I didn't quite finish it before moving on to the next month.

I used the stitching to cover up a rather unsightly pole in photo - can you spot it?

I dressed up one of the pics from our haul of mushrooms. We collected 8 buckets in total.

Thanks for stopping by xx
I'll be back with the other 8 pages soon!






time for a challenge or two...

I had good intentions of playing along with all of the D-lish Scraps Birthday Bonanza Challenges, but unfortunately time got the better of me and I only ended up with 2 layouts. 

The first layout was for Ros's Scrap Bingo Challenge and I used the 4th horizontal row featuring stitching, flairs, washi tape, sequins and bling.
here's a better look at the items I used to meet the criteria for the challenge - the washi tape, flair, sequins and black rhinestones for the bling all came from this month's gorgeous Just Add Paper Kit.

I also took on Wendy's Colour Challenge using a mix of white, yellow, light and dark blues. 
 I don't normally use a lot of flowers on my layouts but I knew that the gorgeous satin blossom from a previous Just Add Paper kit was going to be perfect for this colour combo.
