heart of the artistry

A lovely vintage nautical kit from my favourite duo.
I made a special two-pager for my album (only 98 pages to go!), about the day we went to the Whale Dreaming festival.

Have a happy day!

found art-a boy artistry

Those ViVa girls have yet again nailed a grungy, vintagey kit, this time for all things little and masculine.

It's part of their guest run at Scrapmatters. I made a classic "mummy guilt" page with this one...
Enjoy! Have a happy day,

sweater weather. one little bird

Just look how lovely and golden this kit is. I love the vintage feel, so warm and cozy!
Not so long ago, we visited our lagoon to feed the ducks. Lots of them. A couple of them big guys, as my little guy found out.
Have a happy day,
S. artistry

A kit with exquisite balance.
I took up yoga during my final pregnancy, what an amazing experience!
Have a happy day!

Monday, October 17, 2011 little bird and friends

Yep, it sure is. Epic. The collaborative work of One Little Bird Designs, Paislee Press Designs and Biograffiti.
And I was slow in cracking this open, intimidated by the awesomeness. I ended up with a two-pager (don't think I've done one of those before).
I like how it looks side-by-side! And, hello, chevron! You should get this kit. The stitches and photo overlay were dug up from my stash.
Have a happy day!

lottery ticket. joyce paul designs

Joyce has created a gorgeous new kit for those of us who love surprises.
The kit alone is so pretty, and if you buy it before November 1st, you'll be in the running to win access to Joyce's store for a whole year! How cool is that?!

This kit was a perfect way to document my recently rediscovered love of sewing.

Have a happy day!

Monday, September 19, 2011 little bird

I am loving the process of scrapping my retro photos. This is me in Year 1. I really think I should start wearing my hair like this again! Whenever I slide an old photo onto my page, I get the urge to journal, stream-of-consciousness style. Sometimes I write things the front of my brain had forgotten- like the smell of Gestetner stencils at school back in the day. Remember that, anyone?
 I used the new kit from One Little Bird, called Westover. Perfect for celebrating your geeky self in a stylish manner. Nice one, Peppermint!

Have a happy day!

queen of hearts.mscraps debut

Scrapping goddess and now template queen, Carly (you might know her as snaggletooth) has joined the designers at Mscraps in opening her store there this week. Check out these simpler templates, Not So Crazee:
But wait, there's more. The Queen thought she would 'have a go' at making a kit, just to see if she could. Hmm. Turns out she can. Check out Crazy Cool.
I made a layout with both of these new products. And I used more than 2 ellies.
Have a happy day! (and congratulations Carly!)

iscrap.pagemaker 9

Ing has created this nifty Pagemaker Pack, complete with templates and papers in fun colours. My favourite part is the ellies she has included into the templates- you can mix and match them, so fun!
I used the template pack to make a page for the Feb Theme challenge at Mscraps.
Have a happy day!

viva artistry.snaps and scraps

Vivie and Vanessa have this gorgeous new kit out this week- Snaps and Scraps, in my favourite colourway. Yum.
I couldn't resist the shadowbox frame, and put this gorgeous boy in it.
Have a happy day!

three paper peonies.january

The wonderful Jaime is the featured designer at MScraps for the month of January! Jaime is a gorgeous, elegant designer and a generous person too. She has created this mini-kit, as a free gift with purchase for the whole month!
I started playing with deeply reflective self-analysis, as I tend to do each January. I guess this might be my word for the year...
have a happy day!

one little bird.little sprout

Just in time for me feeling so 'swell', Peppermint has released this gorgeously simple kit. The soft colours and sweet ellies are total perfection.
A perfect opportunity to start documenting my pregnancy! I see a mini album in my future...
have a happy day!
