Week 19 Project Life

Hi all .. I have just noticed just how long it has been since I last blogged.  I have not had a break for sometime now and I am absolutely exhausted but life must go on and it just doesnt  do you any favours but stopping and holding the clock for just a wee while.
As you know I have been home to take care of my StepDad with my Mum.  It was a very emotional and hard week which turned into three weeks in New Zealand but I loved every moment loving and caring for him.  
10 days after I arrived home back in Australia he passed away peacefully holding my Mums hand at 4.45am after telling her to shut her eyes and go to sleep my Darling.. He didnt want her to see him pass away.. Mum was asleep 15 min and he went himself.  So so sad.. but I am so grateful for the amazing memories we made together in that last 3 weeks of his life.  He was only diagnosed with 3 tumours on his brain 5 weeks before he passed away.  So so sudden.

I have posted below my spread of Week 19.  This is actually one of my kits that I put together and sell each month.

Oh I love this kid.. he is the best ever and so much fun to be around

I am many weeks behind now but thats ok with me.  I have decided to skip a few so I dont put pressure on myself.
Take of yourselves everyone and love those around you.

Airport wifi

Today I am flying home to see my family.. Mum and Dad in NZ.. I am totally amazed at the unreal service they now have to keep up with technology.  I am sitting in a very cool cafe/bar and at each table and booth along the walls .. there is a double power plug..  OMG it is the best.  I was getting worried as I was running out of batter on my phone.  I thought I was super organised and I pu the car charger out of my car into Kens car so we could travel with it.  But in the mean time I forgot the actual phone charger which belongs in my bedroom. Grrrrr...... so I bit the bullet and bought another for a small $45 !!
I have been in here for about 2 hours.  I looked at my itinerary incorrectly and I had Ken drop me off 5 hours before my flight.. oh well.. time to think and rest and catch my breath.  
So here today I would like to share with you one of my pages.  I am 6 weeks behind but Im not caring about that fact.  I will just cruise along.

Did I say how much I love this man??

And this girl of mine.  I know it's life.. but it is so hard to comprehend that life flys by us so fast.  One minute she is my little blonde ringlet girl.. and now she is all grown up .... dark hair gorgeous, happy and married living 1200km north of me.  Kinda sucks I think.  But as long as she is happy I am the happiest Mummy for her.  Can you believe she is doing a revamp on these gorgeous eye brows?  Yep.. she laughs at me as I have skinnier blonde ones.. she grows hers out.. and has them very dark. But she is amazing at creating makeup so it all goes doesn't it. Bit like you need the glue for the paper.

A big mix of papers and embellishments and stamps above.  This is part of one of my Monthly Project Life kits.  If you are interested in purchasing one just PM me through Facebook.  Everything that you see is included in the kit.  Except the page protector.

Take care everyone and I will be back with you very soon xx

Crate Paper Confetti

There is no doubt Crate Paper is one of my favorite designers in paper for my Project Life and scrapping of any kind.  As you all know I have been doing PL for nearly 3 years now.. but when I saw this stunning sheet of paper I just had to purchase it and put a page together.  It is absolutely stunning.  I love the gold in it and it is just perfect on its own.
Last night I put this together and as much as I stressed about the size of the paper after doing 6x4 pockets for the past 2.5 yrs I really loved to do big.. and do a nice big title again.
I love all the ranges that Crate Paper have been putting out in the past few years..
Open book, Style board was one of my favourites,  Open Road, Boys rule.. I love the Boys Rule for my son.  Such cool funky papers and embellishments for a bit of a skater boy.

This very cute camera above if from the Crate Paper Open Book chipboard sheet.  It has over 16 gorgeous chipboard pieces which are so fun and easy to use..   My little flair button suits perfectly which is from Flutterby Designs who I design for.

The frame above is also from Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Open Book frames.. There are about 12 gorgeous stunning different sized frames in a pack.  I love them all.
My happy below I have cut using my Cuttlebug.  This is one of Heidi Swapps Wonderlust Word cutting die.  I have about 4 of these words and I love them all.  I have used just a gold large sheet of cardboard from work (Spotlight) for a cheap $3.  The stars I bought 3 years ago from a cheap shop for a packet of about 300 different size ones for about $3 also.  My wood veneer stars are Studio Calico.

Thanks for popping in for a browse.. Off to see everyone else's amazing work for today.
Love to you all

Stamping and Project Life

Today I am off to work at 4-9.  Our store is not open til 9pm but we do smash through getting stock out on the shelves at night time.  There are only a few of us in the store at night and we manage to get miles of work done while there are no customers and no phones ringing.  it is pretty well fill fill fill the shelves. I love it.  I get to have the day off with my hubby and or son during the school holidays and Im a night owl anyway so I am pretty much motivated to do as much as possible.  Then I am home at 9.30pm to put in a couple of hours of my Project Life kits or just play in my scrapping room regardless.

Last month I signed up for Ali Edwards monthly stamp kit.  I have been eyeing up her stamps for a while now and I just love that they are all such down to earth every day stamps that relate to most of my daily photos I take.
This was my lovely surprise May stamp set.  I am in love with it.

Pop over HERE and have a sneak at what Ali is up to

For June I received this one which I cant wait to use tonight.

I have been collecting stamps over the past few years and I have a great little stash now.  I keep them stored in a adhesive folder which is great.  That way I can view them all out of packets and not on top of each other.  This way I was too lazy to look through them.  Instead they are adhered to the pages and I can fit about 3 stamp sets on each page size depending.  Easy to just pull off, use, wipe down using a baby wipe and put back in its place.

If you want to check the stamp sets out ..... go HERE and see what Ali Edwards is offering.. In Australia at the moment it is costing me $29 a month.  That will change once the exchange rate changes too.  But for me.. It is worth every cent once a month.

Here is my little set up

Thats all for today.. I hope you have a great week.

Catching up...

Lately I haven't had much time to do much else but my Project Life kits.. I have been loving doing them and each and every month I am selling out which is fantastic.. I didn't expect such a great response so than you all who like to get some happy mail once a month.
I have put a couple of weeks in here to share with you.  
When I first started PL (2.5 years ago) I found it so frustrating.  I felt like my work was not blending and matching like you do in a 12x12 layout.. I found it so hard to match papers up with such different coloured photos.... then one day the penny dropped.  you don't always have to have everything matching for it to look great.  I do like to do a colour palette sometimes.. and I enjoy it .. but most weeks I love to just go with what feels right for the photo..   So if this is you, just remember you don't have to be pedantic .  

My BFF and I ... love this girl

Not much news to catch up on.  I am looking forward to some new PL products to come out.  Has been a while.  And papers.. I love papers and am on the lookout for new papers all the time to cut up and use instead of cards all the time.
Good night for now
Take care

Week 16 Project Life update

As a lot of you would know these are my most favorite colours.   I have just finished my kits for May and I had a week to play and do my own thing.  So I printed out the yellow VW car which is my next dream car and it went from there.  I have some gorgeous pink PL cards and paper which is from Kaiser so I am going to give pink a go and see how it comes out.  I dont use or do many colour coordinated pages very often but I real the like took and feel of them while I am doing them.  Plus I do like to have a play and do something different now and then.  Great to mix things up.
Below I have used Kaiser spotted paper which I just love and I also love the little Date tab that is available from Flutterby Designs.

Below is my new rug I bought for myself as Ive been so down in the dumps health wise so decided I needed a treat.  I spotted this rug about 4 months ago and decided to go and buy it this week.  Its perfect.  The Hello tab and NOTE: tab are from Flutterby Designs also.  Perfect colours for my inserts this week.

I love this little beauty.  He comes and visits us regularly in our back yard.  How lucky are we.  I have used this digi stamp from Peppermint Creative.  They are so cool.  And also to keep my colour in here I have added my cute little star tab from Flutterby Designs.  Simple Stories camera chipboard.

Not only is the above one of my favorite photos but this fussy cut from Flutterby Designs is also one of my favorite embellishments for a page.  Ohhh how I love theeeee!! They take over the page and are stunning.  It just gives the page a nice POP.  They come in white cardstock.  I have sprayed it with black paint.

Below is my Kaiser Craft desk organiser I bought from work on sale for $10 from $20.  I had so much fun putting it together.  Painted it all up black first then adhered the paper to the tabs and the end of the organiser itself.  Then waalaaa put it all together and sealed it with Mod Podge.  Love this stuff.  I always use the Matte.
How cool is this Check out this card... ?  It is from the Everyday Etc Happy cards then I have inked up these cute little circle wood veneers for a few little embellishments.

Make sure you go here and check out all the yummy Flair buttons they have over at Flutterby Designs.  They are truly cool and pop on each page.

And again wood veneers from Flutterby Desgins.  Love love love

And most important.. my precious baby.. Ok we all have a dream.  But yes this is my dream car.  Im so in love with this.. and my colour.  But like I said... we are all entitle to dreams right?

Thats about all I have to share with you all tonight.. I am hoping to get another Week done before I start my June Project Life kits.  If you are interested in purchasing my kits... Please email me at

Night night for now
