Happy Easter to you all. I'm on the Design Team for Unstampabelles, a challenge blog.
This month our theme is
You can create a baby project of some kind or use the phrase to suit!
Easter babies, animal babies, human babies........
The TWIST is to make your project fairly non-traditional for babies...
The Prize - new/unused
Not the Tombow glue - that is to give an idea of size
Don't forget - don't use stamps.
Here is my little project that I made for it. It's a little vintage baby shoe.
It's good to use a double sided paper for this project as you can see the inside.
This could be used for display or as a gift with goodies inside.

EXPLODING BIRTHDAY BOX
Today I have made an exploding box for my son's 15th birthday. I've used the colours pink, orange and green to go with ch#2 of Scrapbook Divas birthday challenge. I've used a tutorial done by Steph over at Papercrafter' s Corner. I always thought these boxes were a bit tricky and too much trouble but her tutorial was really easy to follow and it was a lot of fun to make.
I hope my son likes it.

Scrapbook Divas has turned 10. Michelle is having a 10 day challenge to celebrate. The first challenge is a double layout. I do like doing doubles so I've given it a go. I've used some misting on a white background. Then I've added some swirls on paper and two colours of sequins to move your eye across the pages and emulate the jellyfish tentacles. A fun challenge.
I've made a card for April 2015's challenge at Artistry. You needed to use the picture below as inspiration and add swirls. I used a stencil and some green pen to create swirls on my white cardstock. I then added some yellow and black flowers. Lastly I added some Bella! bling black rhinestone swirls to finish it off.

I Love Kaisercraft
I was so excited to see that Kaisercraft are having their Design Team Call. I've decided to apply as I would love, love, love to be on their Team. It is my ultimate scrappy dream.
I've created 3 projects for them to have a look at. They are all indicative of my style.
LAYOUT - Kinetic Rain
Firstly, I've created a layout. I've used two complementary colours and a lot of layering. I always add journalling as I believe it makes my pages more meaningful.
The Kaisercraft products I've used are:
- Base Coat/Weathered
- Base Coat/Bricks
- Peachy Keen/Dandy
Up, Up and Away Die-Cuts
Now Boarding Collectables
Hidden Treasures sticker
Periwinkle Alpha stickers
I've been using Kaisercraft for a long time. You can see from my list of products that I've used that they are all from various collections released over many years. The beauty of Kaisercraft's products is that they all co-ordinate beautifully. After I created it I re-read the instructions and it said to use product no older than 1 year. Oops. Hopefully that is mainly to show that it has been created recently. I made this layout on 27 March 2015.
OFF THE PAGE - Art Cabinet
My son and I made this project together. He needed a cabinet for School. They had to present a wunderkammer. We purchased the Kaisercraft wooden Storage Cupboard, the perfect choice for his project.
It was a wonderful project to work on together using a mix of paints, papers, wood and rub-ons from Kaisercraft. He scored high marks for it. Now I get to use it in my craft room to store items.
I have created a card for a female 50th birthday. I very recently got a die-cut machine and some Kaisercraft metal dies which I wanted to try out. Here is the result.
This card has an interesting feature. I've cut a semi circle in it, opened it out and added decoration to it. I made this card on 30 March 2015.
Kaisercraft products used:
Decorative Die - Nested Scallop circles
Confetti pp - Witty and Cheerful
Cardstock - weave/bubblegum
Organza ribbon - pink
Pearls, snow and hot pink
Save the Date - clear stamps
Thanks for looking. Wish me luck!

We always like to go to Hard Rock Cafes to eat. We've been to many around the World. This one is on Sentosa Island in Singapore.
The March challenges at Mystical Scrapbooks are:
#1 - do a monochromatic layout. I chose red.
#2 - use 3 squares, 5 rectangles (I actually have 7) and use 6 circles as embellishments (see title).
I wrote them on the same piece of paper and combined them. Supposed to do 2 separate ones. Oh well, if I have time I may do another one.
