March Kraft It Up

This is my entry for the March Kraft It Up challenge. The criteria was to use the saying "There is no greater gift than today" in your title or journaling on a kraft background (of course). I decided to scrap this photo I had taken recently on a lovely evening at the Coffs Harbour Jetty...a great place to relax and reflect. I have used the soft and pretty Basic Grey Marjolaine papers, the photos were taken on my iPhone using Hipstamatic.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating.

One more to share...

I just can't seem to stop scrapping lately...and I am having so much fun using older product from my stash. This one is for Manon's stylist challenge at Scrap Boutique. You needed to scrap about your work and as I am now a stay at home Mum I decided to document some of the things I do each day. I must say I enjoy having more time to do jobs around the house and not have to rush around in the mornings trying to get it done before work...I will enjoy it while it lasts! I have used the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird range.

Some layouts to share

Hi there

I have been scrapping quite a bit in the last few days and have quite a few pages to share. This one I competed while having a scrappy day with my sister. I love the Prima Jack and Jill papers...it is actually hard choosing which side to use! I have added some Kaiser flowers, a Prima canvas chipboard diecut...love the texture on these, Jillibean Soup corrugated alphas, and a few bits and pieces from my sisters stash.  

This one is for the Anna's Craft Cupboard monthly sketch. I have used some older Fancy Pants papers from my stash...just love using up some older stuff!

I have also completed Sonia's challenge over at Scrap Boutique. The challenge was to scrap something that makes you happy in summer and to add some yellow to the page. I have used the gorgeous October Afternoon Seaside papers and stickers for this page of Mikala walking  along the waters edge at Surfers Paradise. I have misted some clouds and edged them in Kindyglitz and added some twine and a piece of a red bag that had onions in it...never throw anything out. lol

Amanda's Scrap Boutique challenge was to complete a page from a sketch using up lots of your flower stash. I have so many lovely wedding photos still left to scrap so have used this one of Mikala with Prima papers. I have drawn the border in blue pen and then covered it with Kindyglitz...it is a very soft and pretty effect. I have used up Green Tara and Kaiser flowers from my stash along with some pretty American Crafts puffy thickers. 

Lastly, I went to a Stampin Up demonstration at the lovely Deb's house on the weekend. It was the first time I have seen the products and they have some really lovely stamps. I met some lovely local scrappers and card makers  there as well. I had a really nice time and am looking forward to having a play with the stamps I ordered. This is the little Easter card I made...I love the cherry blossom and little girl stamps...so cute!

It's been a big post so thanks for taking the time to read.

Happy scrapping xox

March White With 1

This is the first time I have played along with WW1 and this month's challenge was to create a layout using white, bright pink and artesian shapes or products. I didn't have any products so cut a shape from pattern paper using a chipboard shape from my stash. This photo is of my niece Chloe dressed all pretty as a flower girl. I have used Echo Park papers with American Crafts glittered thickers, Petaloo, Green Tara and Prima flowers, Heidi Swapp felt butterfly and Purple Pumpkin handmade pokadot flower and button.

March Scrap The Girls

This months challenge at Scrap The Girls is to use a quote by Kobi Yamada as your title and inspiration for your page. I loved the quote "she saw every ending as a new beginning" and felt that it suited where I am in my life right now. I have used Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers and chipboard along with Green Tara and Kaiser flowers, AC thickers and Prima alphas which I just love. My journaling is on the tag behind the photo as I wanted to keep it private.

March Scrap The Boys

This months challenge at Scrap The Boys is to use a specific TIME as your layout's title... I chose to scrap a small photo I had of my Dad and oldest brother when he was a newborn. I wasn't sure of the day or exact time so went with the month and year as the title. It's a simple layout for me...I usually like adding lots to a page! I have used some older Fancy Pants paper scraps with Websters alphas and American Craft felt thickers. I am so happy to see Scrap The Boys back...I don't always get the time to play along but love to check out the inspiration every month.
