It's School Holidays!!!

9:16 AM Edit This 5 Comments »
Yaaay!! I think I say it everytime but I do love school holidays.
Just a couple of things to share today, first up a LO of my sister and her girls, they are all gorgeous!!
I used some MME, Fine and Dandy PP for this LO, Kaiser bling and pearls, one little Prima flower and collections chip heart that I have painted and then stamped on. I cut the title from felt with my cuttlebug.
 Just a bit of detail....
 I made this Journal for Lilli's birthday, I have one and she asked if I could make her one as well. So I did. She took it to school for show and tell :)
Very pretty and girly I thought.
So anyways that's about it for now. I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, just in case I don't get back here before then.

Just one lonely card

7:57 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
That's all I have to share today. I have not had a chance to do a lot of scrapping lately, it's just that time of year!! But I did make this card for my cousins wedding recently. I totally stole the design from the Kaisercraft blog, if you scroll to the bottom of the post you will see the card by Camilla Ekman that I lifted!! It's not exactly the same but you can see the resemblance. 
So anyways that's all from me today. It's Saturday so hopefully I might get to sit down and scrap for a few hours today, fingers crossed!!

Some Chrissy cards and an Award!!

7:24 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
So.. it's almost December, OH MY!!!! Sorry, I just can't believe how fast the year has flown by. Anyways, I have been working on my chrissy cards, slowly, but I'm getting there!! I made these 2 last week, I used a technique we learned a couple of years ago when Kim Archer came to Scrapsidaisy. We stamped on book paper and then painted the image, I love the result!! I have used Echo Park PP and some older Kaiser PP as well.
 I added a little sparkle with Kindy Glitz....as you do! and I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the stamps, I really should write it on them some where if I am going to throw out the packaging!!
And I got this!! An award for a Beautiful Blog!! Thanks so much to Nerrida who gave me this award. You should go and check out her blog, she does some amazing work!!
Three things about me:
1. I love frogs!!
2. I love Country Music.
3. My real name is Rebecca Jane (but even my mum calls me Beckie)
Five people to pass this award on to:
You girls are always inspiring!!
Ok that's all for this morning, I had better go wake up the princess and get her ready for school. I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I know I did!!

A card for my Mum and a LO.

7:08 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
Ok so LO first! This is my latest LO using the Kaiser  Homemade PP's. Ryan and Lilli's feet at the beach. I have used some Prima flowers, I made my own crochet heart and cut the title with my cricut. I cut the scrabble letters out of a piece of the PP. A bit of stamping on there too. I have also used one of the Kaiser rubon quotes, I love them they are beautiful. 
 And this is my Mumma's birthday card! It was her birthday on Wednesday. The stamp I think, is a My Favourite Things stamp. The packaging is gone and I have had them for a little while. It's cute anyhow!! I coloured it with inks and water brush. There is some Prima flowers and bling on there, oh and I have used MME papers. I think she will love it. I won't see her until tomorrow to find out!!
I do have a couple of Christmas cards to share but for some reason I can't load them right now, so I will be back soon to show you them. In case I am not back before the weekend, I hope you have a safe and happy one.
Thanks for your comments, I love knowing when people have been to visit :)

Some My Minds Eye

1:33 PM Edit This 2 Comments »
I finally got to play with my MME PP's that I got from Scrapsidasiy last week. It's the Tickled Pink range, I love it, it's gorgeous. I have used some Prima flowers on there too, I cut the butterflies with my cuttlebug, using a sizzix die. The title I cut out on my cricut. A bit of paint and sewing on there too.  
I am hoping my title doesn't offend anyone, but that's how she was sleeping LOL
Here is a close up of some detail.
I love the chipboard and brads that come with the papers too. Very cute!!
That's about it, thanks for looking

Kaiser Advent Calendar

8:56 PM Edit This 4 Comments »
I have been working hard this last week trying to get this finished, because I know if I didn't get down now it probably wouldn't have been ready before December LOL
Anyways, I have used Echo Park, Everybody Loves Christmas PP and stickers,  Kaiser bling and Be Merry clear stamps and the tree is also from Kaiser. There's a bit of kindy glitz on there too :)
and here is a little bit of detail. How cute are my presents!! LOL If you click on the photo you can see the kindy glitz better. 
I quite like it, I don't think I will want to put it away when Christmas is over.
That's all I've got today, that little project was time consuming, but well worth it I think.
Thanks for looking

More to share!!

8:23 AM Edit This 4 Comments »
I'm back already!!
I have been to a few classes at Scrapsidaisy this last week and had a great time with my scrapping friends :)
The first LO I did on Tuesday night with the very talented Jules, isn't the tree gorgeous!! We did a bit of everything on there, misting, embossing, faux stitching, it was great, and I love there result.
 Now these two should be around the other way but it's all good. I spent the day at Scrapsidaisy on Friday making these two beautiful creations.
In the afternoon we made this gorgeous canvas with Jules, it sparkles so beautifully IRL but I couldn't seem to get that in a photo. Now I need to find a spot to hang it!!
 And in the morning we had a wonderful guest teacher from W.A. Mistra, and we made  these beautiful angels! We got messy with paint and inks and sparkly with stickles, wonderful!!! Again she sparkles so much more IRL!
So I have had a very creative week, it's been great!! I hope your week has been creative too and I hope your weekend is fabulous!!

The Coffee fund

8:14 PM Edit This 7 Comments »
 This was a little project for my sister, she asked me to decorate this old coffee jar so they could use it for a money jar for their coffee supplies at her work.
I used some older Kaiser PP, bling, flowers and tiny letters. Some Prima bling too. I used my Cricut to cut the 'coffee' out of Kraft CS.
I stamped a little verse on a tag. It did have one more line but it kinda didn't sound right, so I cut it off LOL I used some string to tie it on.
Here's a view of the lid, I used my nesties to make the flourish.
That's all today!!
Thanks for looking and Thank You for your comments!!
Oh I almost forgot, I had a great birthday, it was so much fun celebrating with friends and family. 
Beckie ♥ 

Just one today.

6:33 PM Edit This 7 Comments »
One lonely LO that is. I have been busy organising my birthday party and have not had so much time to scrap. I have still played with my Cricut but!!
I used Echo Park PP again, Sweet Summertime this time and another pretty Prima blossom and some hand stitching on there. I have used my cuttlebug for the title.
And that's all I have to share.
I am looking forward to celebrating my birthday on the weekend, I hope you all have a good one!!
Thanks for looking

I got one of these for my birthday
Wooo Hooo, I have wanted one for quite a while and was super excited when Ryan said I could have one for my birthday!!
I would like to thank Leisa from Scrapsidaisy, for finding the super special for me and it arrived super fast so I had it before my birthday!!
Anyways just wanted to share my excitement, Hope you are having a nice weekend, I will be back soon with some scrapping to share.

Took me a while...

8:52 AM Edit This 3 Comments »
to take those pics of my finished LO's. I have even finished an extra one too.  I have been using some of my Echo Park PP, I love it!! There is some on all of these LO's. I used A Walk In The Park for the first one and also some of my new Prima flowers, all available from Scrapsidaisy, and I have used my cuttlebug for the title.  There is some hidden journalling on there, under the photo.  Lilli set up this little farm when I was out one night and left it there for me to take a photo of it, it was cute!!
For this one I used the Life is Good range. I love this photo of my girls.
 and this one is Prima PP with a little bit of Echo Park and some sewing as well. I don't very often use PP as a background but I loved these dots
Ok, I am off to do something fun, like the washing!!

September Kraft It Up Challenge

4:54 PM Edit This 11 Comments »
Here is my entry for the September challenge over on the Kraft It Up blog. This month we had to use a picture for inspiration and Kraft of course!! You can check out the challenge here.
I was inspired by the colours, I added a banner on there and I have 2 little girls playing together instead of boys.
I used a few old pp's for this LO, some Kaiser and My Minds Eye. A cuttlebug title and some hand made flowers. I used some of the new Kaiser tiny alphas, they are awesome!!
Here is a close up of the letters aren't they tiny!! I love them, I got mine from Scrapsidaisy.
Annnnd something totally unrelated to scrapping, TIM MCGRAW!!!! I have had my tickets to his show in Sydney since May and have waited so patiently (well most of the time) to go and see him. It finally rolled around on Tuesday and was more than worth the wait, so so awesome!!! (yes that's 2 so's) We were super lucky in Sydney, Faith Hill came out and sang I Need You with him, OMG I have never screamed so much in my life!! I am surprised I have a voice at all!!
Well that's my news for the week, I have a couple more LO's to share just need some pics. Will do that soon.
Thanks for looking

Bring on the Bling projects!

8:09 AM Edit This 4 Comments »
Last Saturday I went to Scrapsidaisy's 12 hour scrap day Bring on the Bling!!
I had such a great day, it was nice to have 12 hours just for me.
Here are the beautiful classes we participated in while we were there.
A big thanks to Jules, Mel and Lauren for being our teachers, also to the wonderful friends who made the day fun!! A big thanks also to Leisa for organising the whole day!!
This was Jules' class, a beautiful book that we can fill with precious memories.
Mel's class was this beautiful wall hanging, we only made one on the day but I wanted to make another one for Lara.
and Lauren's gorgeous LO, very cool!! We learned a great new technique for including fabric on LO's.
and that's about it!!
Lots of pretty, sparkly goodness!!

A birthday card

6:51 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
Just a quick post today.
I just wanted to share this birthday card I made for sisters M.I.L.
I used Cosmo Cricket PP and also some Prima for the paper flower and Prima bling!!Kaiser wooden leaves and lace and some gorgeous little roses, all available at Scrapsidaisy.
The butterfly I cut out on the cuttlebug and glued some microbeads on to match the little roses. I stamped the sentiment and then clear embossed it. Just a little disappointed with the sentiment.
Anyways, I am looking forward to spending some time with some scrapping friends today, Scrapsidaisy are having a 12 hour crop, Bring on the Bling, should be lots of fun!!
Thanks for looking and thank you for your comments I ♥ them.

Echo Park and excitement

8:59 PM Edit This 5 Comments »
I used Echo Park, Sweet Summertime, for the challenge at Scrapsidaisy this week. The challenge was set by Suzi this week and we had to use a brides good luck charms, something old, something new something borrowed, something blue. I have used an old Kaiser rubon and also some bling, some new PP, I borrowed a Pagemap and there are a few blue things on there.
Isn't the paper gorgeous!! Scrapsidaisy also have the Life is Good and Walk in the Park ranges available here.

And I am very excited to say that I won a prize for my Kraft It Up entry last month, wooo hooo!! Thank you to the sponsors, WIOIN, for my voucher!!! There were so many gorgeous entries, to have mine chosen as a winner is just awesome. Thanks again :)
That's all from me tonight. I'm sure I will be back one day soon with more to share.

Back aleady!

7:37 PM Edit This 2 Comments »
This one started out as my LO for the weekly challenge at Scrapsidaisy, but didn't end up quite meeting the criteria. But that's ok, I love how it has turned out. I used a Pagemap, some Kaiser Up Up and Away and Prima bling. I made the flower out of some lace and a cuttlebug title. My cuttlebug has been getting a work out lately!!
The photos are from when I was pregnant with Lilli, way back in 2003. My face looks pretty tired and puffy, but they are special.
Here is a close up of my lace flower.

A bit late....

10:21 PM Edit This 2 Comments »
I have just realised I haven't posted my LO for the latest challenge at Scrapsidaisy. I thought I had better since it is almost time for the next one!
This weeks challenge was set by Mel and had to be about water. It also had to have some misting, inking and bling on there too. All done!!
I have used Kaiser PP and bling, I stamped my title then cut it out and I made the pink flower. I used the very last drop of my Pink Taffy glimmermist :( So sad, I loved that colour. And just a little bit more stamping as well. Love the face Lil is pulling in this pic!!
I have another LO to share but it will have to wait until tomorrow, I forgot to get a photo of it today.
Thanks to the lovely ladies who left me a comment on my last post, my blog feels loved :)
Thanks for looking

P.S. You know when you run a spellcheck that bling comes up as a mistake, c'mon now as if that's not a proper word LOL

A Rainy Monday!!

11:20 AM Edit This 3 Comments »
The weekend was so beautiful here and now it's a horrible freezing wet Monday. I am glad it stayed away for the weekend though!!
The challenge is up in the Scrapsidaisy Gallery and this week, we had to scrap a list, any kind of list. So I decided to scrap my wish list. I cut pics of magazines and catalogues of the things on my list and scrapped them with it.
Here my entry for this months Kraft It Up challenge. This month you had to use the colours green, yellow and black and Kraft of course. Not colours I use together very often, but I like it!
And this is just a little sneak peak of a DT layout I have created for Scrapsidaisy.
That's all from me today. Now I am going to try and warm up a bit. My fingers and toes are frozen!!

2 Ryan LO's

7:20 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
LOL. This doesn't happen very often. I have scrapped about my partner twice this week, no girly stuff!!
The first one is a just for me LO and I promise it is not crooked IRL, it was my crooked photography LOL I used some Kaiser Le Chateau and Crate Paper Paper Doll. I have done some stamping on there too and a cuttlebug title. I think if you click on the photo you should be able to read my journalling.
and the second one is for the weekly challenge at Scrapsidaisy. It was Jules' turn to set the challenge this week and we had to scrap something sporty!! This was Ryan's very first game of rugby league. I used Kaiser Jungle Bug PP, cuttlebug title and a tiny bit of sewing too. Oh and some paint!!!
Ok, best go do the school thing. Have a nice weekend all!!

Hands up.....

7:08 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
....those who hate washing the dishes as much as I do!!!
It was my turn to set the challenge at Scrapsidaisy this week and I thought we could scrap something 'everyday'. So just something that you do everyday or most days and as you can see from my LO, I think washing up is the worst everyday job there is LOL. You can see what the other girls on the design team have created here.
I used the Kaiser Konstruct PP on this LO. I cut my own foam title with my cuttlebug.
Nothing else to share today, it's not looking like a nice day here today, might be perfect weather for scrapping.

Finally.....The mini album

7:12 PM Edit This 4 Comments »
Well not the whole thing, that might have taken way too long to blog LOL. But I tried to give you a fair idea what it looks like. The first pic has a photo of the birthday girl, my baby sister, all grown up!!
I won't explain, you can just look LOL



I love it now that it's finished, I knew it would be worth it when it was done, but I must admit, sometimes I wished it didn't have so many pages (it actually has 14) but it's all good!!
And here is the weekly challenge for Scrapsidaisy, this week we had to scrap about nature. I scrapped some of the flowers in my garden. I even used one of the Kaiser birdcages I got in my little goody bag from the "garden party". I kind of struggle using things like this, but I was determined to use it!!!! LOL You can join in the fun here.


Ok, I'm done for this post. Hope all is well in your part of the world!!

A little bit late with this one, but here it is. This weeks challenge was set by Mel. We had to create a page inspired by a picture, you can pop over to the gallery to see it and also some other gorgeous pages the girls have created!
That's all I have to share for now, I will come back soon with some pics of my sisters mini album.

I ♥ Frogs

7:14 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
Here is my LO for the Scrapsidaisy weekly challenge, this week we had to do a LO about animals, could be a pet, or the party animal in your family, just something about animals. So I had this cute little frog photo that I took a little while ago and decided to use it. I have done some glimmermisting, I made my own little daisy and I used some Kaiser PP.
and because I am still working hard on the mini album, that is all I have to share today!!
Thanks for looking

Bright and colourful fun!!

7:47 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
I just loved the challenge at Scrapsidaisy this week!! That was....the photo, had to be of a child, 5 and under, 3 bright PP and some sort of animal on there. What fun I had making this LO. I chose some fun photos of Lilli when she turned 1 Then I splattered some white cardstock with some paint in the colours from the PP I was using, I used Nerdy Bird and also just a little bit of Lime Rickey and some BG doily as well, and my little birdy is sitting on the flower. I like it! LOL You can see the other design team LO's here
I made this card for my MIL, it was her birthday last week. I just can't do nice flat bows, but oh well, maybe I need to practice a bit more!!
I also done the challenge on the Kraft It Up blog again this month. The challenge was to do a LO using Kraft and 4-6 photos of any size. I had some photos I had taken of Lil on her first day of school that I hadn't scrapped yet!! So I used them. There is journaling on the back, I just didn't want to put it on the front.
and thats about it! I wish I had some more to share but I haven't had much scrapping time. My baby girl turned one last week, and I spent my scrapping time making cakes LOL I have to make my sister a mini album for her 21st in a fortnight so I will be working hard on that.
