Unstampabelles - New Home Owner card

Hi everybody. I hope you're all having a wonderful day. It's gonna be scorching hot here today.

Today's post is for Unstampabelles where I'm a Designer.  This is our first challenge for the year.

Here is where you can see the post my card features in.  The gist is:

Challenge #54: Looking Forward, Looking Back

TWIST - add a window or mirror

Here is my card:

I've added a cute little house die cut with paned windows. This is designed to be given to a new home owner.

Do take a look at the other Designers' work. Our styles are all very different and their work is inspiring. 

I hope you find the time to do this challenge. Here is the prize you could win.

We Love To Travel

Hi everyone.

It's been a while since I've had the time to do a scrapbook page. I'm only a few pages away from finishing our Singapore holiday albums from our trip in 2013. It will feel great to complete them.

I'm entering this page in another-freaking-scrappy challenge's January challenge which is to scrap a winter theme or colour scheme. I've gone with cool blues. It suited my photos.  I've used patterned paper, die-cuts, ribbon and washi tape.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Two spring cards

I have made two cards for this  month's Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia challenge. I've been inspired by the bottom right photo as I love daisies and spring.

Glittery Christmas cards - 3

December 2015's challenge at Unstampabelles is to use glitter on a project.  A store voucher of $20 is up for grabs.

I have 3 cards to show you,

This card was actually created by my Mum.  It uses lots of very glittery stickers.

I made this card using some silver glitter washi tape. White cardstock is the base and the cover is part of a card that I have recycled from one I received last year.The lovely Donna Cope received this card.

This last card is my favourite.  The base is made of very glittery red cardstock. There is a gold fleck through it and it is very sparkly in real life.  Then we have some gold corrugated paper. On top of that sits a pink die-cut ornament with a red ribbon. The ornament is adorned with a gold glitter pattern. Lastly there is a sticker sentinment saying the magic of Christmas.

I hope you join in. We had a fabulous number of entries last month.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Glad Tidings - A Christmas carol layout


I've created this layout for the November 2015 challenge at scrapbookingtop50. I got quite a happy vibe from their mood board (see below). I've used all the vibrant colours and added some patterned papers that had some shapes. The last thing I added was the little coloured circle stickers inside my inked circles which I thought matched the umbrellas quite well.

Card for Unstampabelles challenge


November Challenge #52: Anything Goes - with a twist to use a flower or flowers

We are remembering the 100th anniversary of WW1 this year, so perhaps that would fit
or you can remember a loved one. It can be a keepsake box, or a scrap page or a card.
Things happening this month are the Melbourne Cup, DiWali and Remembrance Day 
(on the 11th of the 11th). The twist is to use a flower on your work.  This is the prize.

Here is what I created. I made a card using some of the Ruby Rock-It Nostalgia kit. 
I've also added a pretty pink ribbon, a Bo Bunny button with embroidery floss and a 
hand made ribbon rose flower.

I'm thinking I may give this to my Nan for her 93rd birthday on the last day of this year.

I hope you think of joining in this month.
