Prima Marketing PPP & Sassy Scrapper Challenges

Hey guys :)

I hope everyone is doing well. It was a bit of miserable wet & windy weekend here in Tassie which gave me the perfect excuse to get my scrap on. I have to admit - I have been missing it!

So first up I have a layout for the Prima Product Pick. I have used the stunning new Something Blue paper collection & flowers, Prima stamps along with some gorgeous Ingvild Bolme resins & Junkyard Findings.

And here is the Prima product picks which inspired my layout

Next up is a layout created for the April challenge at Sassy Scrapper. I felt like I wanted to challenge myself to do something out of my comfort zone and their mood board was perfect!

Thanks for stopping by :)
Have a great week!

Romantic Card For UHK Gallery

Hi everyone.

Today I am sharing my very last project as a design team member for UHK Gallery. 
 All though my time there has been short I have loved every minute of it and just adore all the UHK Gallery products.

So I have made another card, this time using the beautiful Tropical Fruits Collection.

I have played on the beautiful pink and peach tones of the paper adding some white for contrast.

You can find the Tropical Fruits collection here.

All the best

Grungy Card for UHK Gallery

Hey guys :)

Here today to share a card created with the gorgeous 'Holmes In Love' collection for UHK Gallery. 

I just love the grungy feel to this collection with it's monochrome color scheme and splash of red.

I have created my own background with watercolor paints and layered paper strips and lots of the elements and frames from the collection.

A Catch Up & Some Changes

Hey guys :)

So here today to catch up on sharing some scrappy work but also with a little news.

As of the end of April I will be retiring from all of my current design team positions.

I feel sooooo blessed and honored to have been invited to work with the companies, magazines and sites I have for the past 3 years. I feel like they have helped me grow as a scrapper, pushed my boundaries creatively and given me the confidence to believe in myself a little more than I did.

But saying that, I have reached a point where my entire week is planned around DT deadlines. I have found myself almost 10kg's heavier than before I started DT work, from getting up at the crack of dawn to clean my house spotless and ready to start my day to still being in my pj's at 2pm with nothing done and really just feeling like all the fun is seeping out of what I love to do.

I guess the last few weeks I have had to put things into perspective. I always did DT work for fun, it was never to make a name for myself and there is certainly not any money in it, quite the opposite. When it starts to take away from my time, my family, our finances and how I feel about myself, then I knew it was time to retire, maybe just for a while.

I am pretty sure at some stage I will go back to it. But for now I am taking a much needed break. Still totally addicted to this craft and am sure I will still be around with the odd challenge entry here & there. So don't go unfollowing me just yet lol.

So catching up...

First up a layout for UHK Gallery. In pastels!! Yes I know, very very rare for me! I have used the stunning 'Pastel' range. Just love the colors in this collection, they are all different but work together so well!

Next up is the just released awesome challenge at Once Upon A Sketch.
This month's theme is 'an event that changed your life'. And yes my bestie, Nadia Cannizzo is getting a work on my layouts this week lol. After chatting almost daily for 3 years we finally met in person a few months ago when I flew to Sydney to stay with her and her gorgeous family. And for me it was life changing as I know she will be a friend for life :)

  And here is the sketch:

Awesome prizes up for grabs as always and incredible DT samples to inspire you! Check it out here
