More sushi

Here's another layout I did, using the new Rainbow Sushi collection from SiS.

And just a quick diary I made for my friend.

I've got some ideas floating around in my head, but I have had no time lately.

Hopefully I'll get some time over the weekend.

I'm expecting a parcel tomorrow of some yummy things. I hope it comes!!

If you look to the right you will see some new information.

I have joined Stampin Up. So if you would like to place an order or order a catalogue - you can email me...there's a link there too...and I'll get you sorted out.

I'm pretty excited - I love Stampin Up products.

There is also a promotion on and it goes until the 29th, details are over there too....>>>>>>

Been scrapping a little today.

Also did the grocery shopping.

Really want to get my hands on some yummy new scrapping goodies (since giving away all my pp)

Want to make the kids some canvas calendars so they can keep track off assignments and things that are due. I actually might make a start on them on Tuesday when the kids go back to school.

I am so in love with Etsy at the moment. I could get lost on there for hours. So much yummy stuff.

I'll have to find the link for this particular shop - I ordered some cute stickers a little while ago. I'm expecting them this week. They are going to be so cute!! Can't wait -

Have a happy Sunday ;o)

A card

I made a card tonight for valentines. Really quick and simple.
I got my order from Stampin Up - which was heat and stick powder and some white embossing powder.
So I used the heat & stick on the heart with some red glitter.
It didn't come out as glittery as I wanted. Maybe it was the kind of glitter that I used. Not quite sure. Maybe I overheated it.
Anyway, it was fun.
Went to the Scrapyard today and bought this little tray thing that holds pens and ribbons and paint - so I painted it. Got sick of doing it and just painted it green. Looks so boring. May try and fix it tomorrow.
Also got some MM Noteworthy papers and some paint and some CI fancy edged papers. Really like them!
Just not really in the mood to scrap. Have been exhausted all week.
So so tired.
Really need a couple of good nights sleep to catch up.
Wish me luck -

Have you checked out the American Crafts sneaks on their blog?? No....well get over there!!
Glitter thickers. Thicker accents. New fonts. New minimarks. Scalloped and debossed paper. YUM. YUM. YUM.
I'll be saving up for all of it! I LOVE American Crafts!!
On the scrappy front - things have been a bit quiet.
I have only done this Halloween one ( a redo from 2006) and make a quick clock canvas for my hubby for his birthday.
He was bitching that I never make him stuff. So I did.
Just looking at that pic - it is so wrong that my 11 year old son is like only 1cm shorter than me.
Damn those short genes!!
I had a bit of a cleanout a while ago and gave away pretty much all of my pp. So this explains my lack of scrapping enthusiasm.
I went to the scrap shop today but the sad little budget only extended to the clock mechanism, some mod podge and some white paint.
Yep - inspiring stuff!
Hopefully my SIStv parcel will arrive on Monday.
Last week of school holidays.
We went to see Alvin and the chipmunks yesterday. It was a cute movie.
Got plans to go to a theme park this week.
Have to see how busy work is though.
Well - that's it for me.
Going to try and finish my book tomorrow so I can start on the 2 new ones I have waiting for me.
Have a great week...whatever you may be doing ;o)

Just a card

I haven't scrapped any layouts lately.
Don't know what's going on.
Had to quickly make a card tonight for my friends daughters birthday. Which had slipped my mind. Ooops.
Done now so I just need to post it.
Have a great week ;o)

Here we go again....

I just couldn't leave it alone!!
So I added more bling to the butterflies, some rubons, a flower and orange bling to the actual calendar frame.
Possibly, I have gone overboard. But, I can't go back now.
So this is how it's going to stay.
I am gonna learn to love it!!
And if worse comes to worst - I can always give it away ;o)
Happy Sunday!!

I changed my mind...

So I decided that i didn't really like the yellow with the green and decided to change it to blue.
Except now I feel like I need to add something else.
What am I missing??

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

All done...

Nearly there

I painted the edges and added the rubons.

I've just added a layer of Mod Podge and it should be dry tomorrow.
See you then ;o)
Good night

Friday, 11 January 2008


this is where I am up to at the moment. I didn't like just the outline of the antennae of the butterflies so I decided to use some swarovski crystals instead.
It's taking a while.
Not sure how I am going to attach the overlay. I was thinking maybe brads.
I still have to paint the sides. Probably should have done that first.
Silly me.
I'm going to try and finish it tonight. The weather is really cool and rainy so it's nice to be in my room scrapping!!
Hope you have a great weekend ~
And I might be back later with the finished product ;o)

Busy girl

So I'm up late working tonight so I decided to get started on my canvas.
I didn't like how the butterflies came out so I decided to outline them in black pen.
I have tried all the pens I have. None work.
I think the paint may still be a bit too wet.
So I decided to leave it until tomorrow when it will be completely dry.
Then I thought I'd make a card for my DH's upcoming birthday.
Not sure if I like it.
I hope he does though ;o)
The sun will be up soon....
Good night or is it Good morning??

Happy Scrappiness

What a good day.

I managed to get my order in for Rainbow Sushi and I also received my Studio Calico Kit today. I am going to get stuck into it tonight I think.
Yum Yum Yum!!
I am so happy.
I think I may ditch the paint and paint it the same colours as my clock - just not sure yet!
But I really love these paint colours!!
I love getting scrapping new scrappy things to inspire me!!

Happy Mail

Not for me. Made by me for one of my best buds. A little pocket to fit some photos and a note.
Just wanted to quickly post it - off to watch my shows that I recorded!!
Happy Wednesday ;o)

Tuesday, 8 January 2008

It is Tuesday...

But it feels like Wednesday. I have thought it was Wednesday all day today.
I was all ready to watch The Starter Wife and Cane. Bummer :o(
So I made a card instead.

I received my albums yesterday. I have filled both of them and I still have a box of layouts to put somewhere!!
Oh, and I got the wrong size refills. I may have to punch extra holes in them and try and smoosh them in.

I ordered some White embossing powder and some Heat and Stick powder today. It'll take about 2 weeks. But just as long as I get it by Valentines day, I'll be happy!!

I was reading Ngaires blog post today. And I saw the link she had to an etsy shop for personalised rings. I scooted straight over there and ordered one as it is my hubbys birthday this month - and I thought it would be a really great present. Quite genius, really.
I don't think I'll get it in time. Oooh ~ just thinking I could give it to him for Valentines Day.
Yeah. Except now I have to come up with another present for his birthday.

That's a good thing!

Sweaty Sunday

Today we have had showers but it's been so hot and muggy.
Yucky weather.
Quickly printed this photo out tonight and scrapped it.
Got another pic to do but it's so hot in here ~ I think I'll do it tomorrow instead.
I'm hoping I get a nice suprise in the mail tomorrow. I feel the urge to get organised!!
Have a great week!!

18 minutes to go

Just posting another layout from tonight.

I tried watching a movie, but I couldn't get into it.
So just kind of bumming around.
Getting washing done. Hooray.
Cool. Now it's 14 minutes til my birthday!!
Woohoo ;o)

1 sleep to go

So I made the digi camera one last night and the suprise one today.
Weather is still cold and rainy.
I'm happier with the way my scrap space is set out. I like to be able to see my things (that way they get used) and have easy access.
Still have a bit more sorting and cleaning out to do ~ but I'll get there.
My friend Lee was happy with all the stuff I gave her last night.
No Mail Today!
Bummer. I was planning on sorting out my photos and layouts tonight. I guess that will have to wait until next week.

Early presents

Hubby bought me a Clip it up for my birthday. It arrived today, so I used it today!!

It didn't quite hold as much as I wanted it to. But I shoved as much as I could on it.

I took the opportunity to do a clean out tonight. Got rid of another box load of stuff that I've just been keeping. So I have a little bit more space.

I definately need to get some more cardstock!!

Just waiting on my albums to arrive - and then I can get my layouts out of the boxes on the floor. (I'll gain a little bit more space there too)

Mum is giving me money for my birthday so I have ordered this kit from Studio Calico. Can't wait to get it. So so cool!! It's a calendar canvas.

Doesn't it look like so much fun!

I think so!!

It is so wet here. It feels like the rain will never end!!

Definately good movie weather!! Or scrapping ;o)

Catch you later
