joyce paul designs.creative team

hmmm. i just had to go outside and check that there were not in fact pigs flying in the sky. because i didn't think this week would get any better scrapping-wise (it's been pretty good family wise too, thanks for asking). and then i woke up to a lovely email from joyce paul inviting me to join her creative team. hello? so i have been playing with joyce's latest kit, a collab with polly & rufus designs. i had already bought it because it is just so beautiful, and the colours will really suit the landscape around my home.
here's a page i made, with a little help from one of Crystal Livesay's Creator templates:thanks joyce, i feel very special!
have a happy day!

one little bird.creator

aaah, all has been revealed! one little bird will be guest designer at Scrapbookgraphics, and here is the kit that you need to go and check out. because it's cool. also if you head over to Scrapbookgraphics, you can read Peppermint's answers to a barrage of questions from some of her crazy fans. it is really not funny or witty at all.

so fancy my first one little bird kit to play with being this one...i'm pretty sure i have a small piece of lego embedded permanently in the soft skin under my toes. so here are some pages I did with this kit:

i am so freaking lucky(!)
have a happy day,

one little bird.creative team

good heavens. am i excited or what? i got the most awesome email the other day from Peppermint...otherwise known as one little bird. i applied for her creative team and she actually let me in. i think she made a mistake but i'm going to pretend i know what i'm doing and see how it goes. she doesn't know this, and don't tell her, but Peppermint was my first scrapping crush. i was so in love with her style and mad skills when i first started scrapping, and one day she left a comment on one of my layouts and i died! so you can imagine how thrilled and overwhelmed i am. if you love one little bird stuff like i do, go check out Peppermint's blog, where she is giving away her upcoming kit. check out the preview:
anyway, i'd better get back to just walking around and smiling like a big dork. oh, should probably do some scrapping too...

gabs element packs

aaah, gabs. she's done it again. the queen of unique has just put these fabbo element packs in her shop. insanely cool, and totally original, i am in love with these transparency frames and can't stop using them. really, i'm going into rehab tomorrow. check em out:
now to these sweet little happy pills- i mean alpha pills. so darn cute and useful.
and who doesn't need a funky new set of date elements? these are on grungy tape. yum.
this page used the date tapes and the transparency frame, as well as gab's bubble me elements and papers from project e.
oh, look at that. another page with the transparency frames. see how the texture of the paper shows through? awesomeness.
this page was for the weekly logbook challenge at log your memory. have you been to visit us over there yet? the link is in the sidebar. go on click it. go on.
have a happy day,

viva artistry.eclectic primavera

my girls vivie and vanessa have rocked out yet another gorgeous kit. feeling springy yet? well i'm not because i live in the southern hemisphere, and well, quite frankly it's still pretty summery where i am. but it is nice to be organised. and this kit will do all sorts of layouts cause it's good. i love love love the gorgeous colours in this one!
see? it works for summery layouts too. i am such a rebel.
have a happy day!

p365.freebie template

well. my p365 has hit a dismal standstill. am i the only one running out of puff already? i have become lazy with taking photos, finding that some days i take stacks of photos that i love, then i'll have three days in a row where i wouldn't even know where the camera is...but i am going great guns with my journalling, mainly thanks to my Log Your Memory 2010 Logbook.

so, i'm changing tack. i've come up with a new plan. i am going to swing into a weekly scrapping scenario, choosing my four favourite photos from the week, and relaying any journalling i've done in my logbook, editing where i need to. i am going to keep a consitent colour theme too, because that's how i roll. i've picked Noticed, a collab between Three Paper Peonies and Monalisasmiles. i've been stalking jaime (3PP) for ages now, and i'm a big fan of monalisa smiles gorgeousness since hanging out at Mscraps. this kit is yumminess. here's the first page i did (note my brilliant attention to chronological detail):

and i thought, why not make myself some templates, to make it even easier? whammo. here is my first fab four template:

and it is linked. so you can grab it. and use it. however you want. but not to sell. link me up if you do use it, and you also remember where you got it from by the time you get round to using it. or not, it's up to you. but go for gold on the downloading thing, i wanna see if i can beat my last freebie download record. so download twice if you like.

right. time to get on with things now. i shall have to make some more of these, with room for portrait photos too. so stay in touch ok? you should probably know that i'm a site CT member for Log Your Memory. but not for MScraps, Three Paper Peonies or Monalisasmiles. yet. hint hint ladies?

have a happy day!
