With working so much lately and fitting in the Christmas get togethers and housework and time for the family and also not to forget learning my new iMac.. there has not been a lot of time left to do what I love to do at night time.  I am so buggered.. I am only getting to do about a layout a week atm and not to mention how much of a slow scrapper I am.
but anyway this is what I have put together this week.

I just love it.  I have used American Craft thickers, Collections locket and printed tissue paper, Kaiser Resin flowers, Kaiser Wooden Scallop circles , Kaiser Flowers, my2angels leaves, The Greatest View Crocheted flower (yum yum)

Masters submission 2011

This was a second submission for Masters 2011. The criteria for this layout was a simple 5x7 photo.  I had fun creating this layout as we had so much fun when taking these photos.  We were on my God Parents dairy farm in Hamilton NZ.  Corey wanted to go and milk the cows but suddenly got cold feet when he saw just how much poop was coming from the Mumma cows during milking. 

Products I have used are:
Paper - Kaiser Craft , Basic Grey, October Afternoon Crate Paper, We R Memories 
Embellishments - Basic Grey Brad, Tim Holtz film strip, Crate Paper journal tags, Scrapbooking craft scalloped circle chipboard, bakeries twine, scrap ware bird, my2angels charm, ranges stickles, Creolees letter stickers, Jenni Bowlin Chippy banner,  Tim Holtz stamp, Greatest View Vintage dictionary banner
Prancer thickers.
See ya for now... Moonie x

Masters submission 2011

So here goes... Not very good at this iMac yet... but I have managed to resize and upload one of my layouts I submitted for Masters 2011.  The criteria for this layout was there had to be hidden journalling in there somewhere.  See the little pink envelope to the right... well inside there is journalling that I wrote about my daughter in this picture with me.  I loved putting this together as I am a very pink person but don't often use pink in a layout.  
I will try and upload the others for you.
Thanks for all the kind wishes on my Honors.

Exciting news for me!!!

I have just had a few emails tonight congratulating me on my Honorable Mentions in the Scrapbooking Memories Masters of 2011.  I gave it my first shot last year and got 2 HM out of my 3 submissions so I was pretty well stoked.  I got one this year and I am wrapped.

Congrats to all the clever and very talented girls out there who are 2012 Masters...!!!!! Woohooo for you all. What an honour !!
See you all in a day or two with my submissions.

Kaiser Craft Advent Calendar

Well here I am and I have not blogged for a while.  I have jumped the fence and got myself and iMac and and iPad.  My trustily laptop died on my and I am sick to death of paying out for expensive laptops just don't go the mile.  I know I will enjoy it when I know how to use it properly.  It has taken me about 2 weeks to get it all set up with contacts and bookmarks etc..... hence why I have not blogged.  Learning how to play with photos also has been challenging.
So here I decided to have a go at this cute as Advent Calendar. It comes in a kit.  Raw unpainted wood pieces, letters, flat boxes and that is it.  I have used the gorgeous Kaiser 25th December paper range for the boxes and My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas for the inside of the box.. About 2 year old Christmas paper for the trees and a Jenni Bowlin pearl charm.  I found it so relaxing doing this.  Took me 3 nights which was about 10 hours all up I think.  Pity I didn't decide to do it in November for my boy.
I am all ready for Christmas day now. Working right up so I will be looking forward to a day off... but back into it Boxing day 
Take care now all of you and may I wish you all the best for the silly season with your family and great friends.

Thanks for looking

Christmas Card Kits

Check out these gorgeous Christmas cards by my2angles:

I tried to used the same selection of embellishments throughout the cards, keeping the cost and time down

All you need is a few base products to start with:
and 10 "5x7"Ivory Greeting Cards (10 for $1.80 and includes the envelopes)
okay so not the best photos from the supplier but you will get their look as we progress

So start by cutting each flash card up into separate pieces
All your back ground pieces of cardstock is 10cm x 14cm (so you can get 6 cards from one sheet of cardstock)

Card 1

Adhere your cardstock and flash card to your card

Tie a bow with Red and White Bakers Twine (I have a thing about mixing cream and white so to remove some of the white I wiped the twine over my Jumbo Java ink
Then add your holly and berries
How to make Holly 
Draw your holly on the BACK of a piece of green cardstock, it doesn't have to be perfect.  Cut them
Then crease a centreline (outward)
Bend and scrunch holly
Ink the edges and wipe over it to pick up the creases
Then cover with dimensional magic and a sprinkle of diamond dust

To make the berries
Take a variety of sizes of our cabochons
Drop a little bit of dimensional magic to the backs of them and place down onto red cardstock.  Push down and swirl the cabochons around the cardstock a little to remove any air bubbles and to spread the dimensional magic around evenly
Once dry cut the cabochons away from the cardstock


Adhere your cardstock and flash card to your card (i did my flash card on an angle)

Tie a bow with Red and White Bakers Twine again inking my twine with  Jumbo Java ink 

Then add your holly and berry

Card 3

Start with by adhering your black cardstock to your card

Draw a line around your flash card with liquid glue and sprinkle diamond dust over the glue.  Once dry (around 5 minutes) adhere to your black cardstock.

Cut two 4.5cm stripes of our black acrylic chain with rhinestones .  Tape with 3mm tape or liquid glue to top left hand corner then add our large snowflakes (with liquid glue)

Glue one of our Snowmen charms to the bottom right hand corner of the flash card

Card 4

Adhere black cardstock to card
Using liquid glue add one of our Joy Wreaths to highlight the 25th
Using either 3mm tape or liquid glue attach a strip of our black acrylic chain with rhinestones to just below the flash card
Card 5
Ink the edges with Spanish Olive VersaMagic ink
Take one of our gardenias from the Heritage pack and apply liquid glue to some of the edges and dip into your diamond dust
Once glue has dried, place gardenia in centre of our new Flower Filigaree 
Tape down 4 Metallic Gold Skeleton leaves then adhere the flower to the centre
 Card 6
Cut piece of Scarlett Coredinations Cardstock , ink edges black and adhere to card
Adhere flash card to the centre of your cardstock
Add strip of black acrylic chain with rhinestones to top of the flash card
Adhere Black Merry Christmas Charming Chain with liquid glue.  When dry, tie a bow from the top loop of charming chain with Red and White Bakers Twine (this time I wiped the twine with black ink)

Card 7
Cut piece of French Roast Coredinations Cardstock,  Distress the edges of cardstock then adhere to card
Add strip of Brown Acrylic Chain with Rhinestones just above scalloped border on flash card
Adhere 2011 Christmas Bauble (I have inked my bauble with Spanish Olive VersaMagic ink, again its the white and cream thing!)
When dry, tie a bow from the top loop of charming chain with Red and White Bakers Twine 
Card 8
Adhere your cardstock to card
Colour in a present charm with stickles (I say do this first as stickles take a while to dry)
Draw a line around your flash card with liquid glue and sprinkle diamond dust over the glue.  Once dry (around 5 minutes) adhere to your cardstock.
Once both stickles and diamond dust is dry attach to layout
Card 9
Adhere cardstock and flash card to your card
Cut piece of red acrylic chain with rhinestones and adhere to flash card using liquid glue or 3mm tape
 Adhere 2011 Christmas Bauble (I have inked my bauble with Spanish Olive VersaMagic ink, again its the white and cream thing!)

Card 10
 Adhere your cardstock to card
Draw a line around your flash card with liquid glue and sprinkle diamond dust over the glue.  Once dry (around 5 minutes) adhere to your cardstock. (leave a gap without diamond dust at the top for your filigree)
Using liquid glue or 3mm tape add a piece of red acrylic chain with rhinestones to above the banner on the flash card
Add the filigree and one piece from the red acrylic chain with rhinestones
Card 11
Adhere cardstock and flash card to your card
Tie Red and White Bakers Twine around the bottom of flash card with our Christmas Sleigh Charm

Card 12

Adhere cardstock and flash card to your card
Adhere strip of brown acrylic rhinestone chain to just above the scallop on the flash card.

With red organza ribbon tie the extra dangle from the Merry Christmas Charming Chain around the reindeer charm neck and using liquid glue AND foam tape attach him to the card

If you don't want to bother with the cardstock backings, try the Simply Stories 4x6 Journaling Card Elements

Here is another quick one I did using our lollipop charm with stickles
and a piece of Melissa Francis Sprig 

Okay so 13 Christmas Cards done and I don't want to count how many more to go so.....
my solution was to get Cathy's Christmas Kit and make another 10!

You will received instructions and ALL materials (with leftovers) to create 10 more Christmas Cards (this includes the cards and envelopes) and 3 "12x12" Christmas layouts using the gorgeous Simply Stories Christmas Papers and Sticker Sets

Here is a snippet preview of what you will create
