 So much for catching up on things. I kind of got sidetracked by the birth of a friends first baby. So I found the perfect use of the pack of Basic Grey Olivia that I'd been hoarding. I made a mini book based on the MPS Mom mini book that Heidi designed. I used a shape from the silhouette store as a template. And here are the rest of the pages.

Now I really do need to catch up on MPS Mom and I am way way behind in KP's Sketchbook 3, so I need to catch up on that too!
Lucky I stocked up on ink yesterday! I am going to need it.

Have a Happy Thursday,

Getting caught up

 Over the weekend while my baby girl has been gone - I got caught up on Mouse, Paper, Scissers Mom class. I love how this album turned out. So pretty
 And those Bo Bunny papers are just gorgeous!
 And made a few cards - and now my ink has run out. Oops.
And we've got unexpected visitors coming today so the silhouette came to the rescue. I used a bunny place card as a bag topper.

Now I need to get cleaned up before my girl gets home. I can't wait!! Missed her like crazy!!

 I checked my mail box the other day and what did I find? SMASH!!
 So so cute. Love it!
 And today I had to make more bunnies.....
and fill them. And a couple may or may not have jumped in my mouth.

Have a Happy Easter -

Rainy days

Here's my layout for Sketchbook 2 day 6.
It's so cool & rainy here today. The girls are off at the movies seeing Diary of a wimpy kid 2 and doing a little shopping.
I'm just trying to keep warm. Thinking that soup might be a good option for dinner tonight. Brrr.
Mouse, Paper, Scissors Mom starts today. I can't wait. I really need to go and get some supplies for it but I think it can wait until tomorrow.
I just want to get back in my jammies and jump into bed and watch a movie.

Have a happy Monday,

 So I had a bit of a reshuffle. I put my Mister Hueys up on the shelf in front of me so I can see the pretty rainbow everyday.
 I moved my Zing out of the rack and put them in a basket
 And in the rack, I now have my chalkboard & glimmer mists, maya mists, glazes & glams, distress paint and dimensional pearls. It's easier to see what colours I have now.

And lastly my layout for Sketchbook 3 day 5. Using an old SC kit "Documentary".

Hope you have a happy scrappy Thursday

 I can't find any American Crafts this to that dot refills in Oz - so I ended up going with Kokuyo. This used to be my go to adhesive before they quit making it.It was very expensive and a last resort until I do an overseas order.
 I also got some Studio Calico Countryside and some Bluegrass mist.
 And finally some Daily Junque - I've been pining for this since CHA. I love that navy paper.
And Soiree - been pining for this too! It's so pretty.

I love scrappy mail days.

And here's todays layout for Sketchbook 3 - Day 4.

Hope you are having a Happy Tuesday -

Bunny lovin'

 How cute is this little guy? I'm going to use him on a card or as a tag. I used Tattered rose and pumice stone distress ink.
And I cut this guy out again using Doodlebug glitter cardstock. I double cut it and still had to use scissors to go over the lines. So I really think there is no chance that the American Crafts glitter cardstock would got through the silhouette as it is much thicker than the Doodlebug.

Need to hide these before the kids get home.
Have a Happy Friday,

 ETA - Here's my layout for Sketchbook 3 - day 3

A couple of things

First up - here's my layout for Kelly's Sketchbook 3 - Day 2. I love that navy SC paper. I have got a real thing for navy at the moment. I used Back 40.

Next - I signed up for this class. I completely loved Mouse, Paper, Scissors - so I know this will be fabulous too. Can't wait for it to start.

Loving my new table set up. It's really working for me. I just have to sort out the rest of the room. Eeek!!
Anyone want to help - I'll pay with choc chip cookies and coffee?

Outta glue

I am completely out of adhesive. And I really need some for today. So I stopped in at spotlight to see if they had any this to that refills. Nope.
But they did have punches on special - so I grabbed the fiskars 2 inch circle punch. And some tape. (It was the best adhesive that they had) and I also spied American Crafts Glitter cardstock - AWESOME!!
So here's the question - can you run that kind of cardstock through the silhouette? I don't want to just try it as I don't have a back up blade.

ETA: Here's what I made today.

 Some notebook wrappers using "yearbook"
 I slipped a little envelope inside the cover for notes or receipts or whatever.
 Then I made another one for my mum.
 And I also tried out the bunny treat bag. It's too cute. I think I missed something when cutting so I'm going to have another go at it tomorrow.
Well better go get the veges roasted for tonights dinner.

KP Sketchbook 3 & a catch up

Happy Monday. So thankful that KP's Sketchbook class started today. I've done mine already. Might do another tomorrow. I'm feeling inspired.
And finally, my first assignment for mouse, paper, scissors - was the last one I did. I believe it was because I was waiting on my scoring board to arrive so I moved onto the next thing. It's a wrapped notebook. It's so cute that I don't want to use it.

I'm thinking that my desk organisation is actually working for me this time. A layout in 10 minutes and packing up in 2 minutes. Can't complain about that!

Have a happy day,

Hoarder no more!

So I have managed to sort some stuff over the weekend. Maybe a better description would be "shuffling".
I've moved my paper shelves  right in front of me. (I have tried this before but I think I felt cramped)

And have filled one side with old Studio Calico kits in the hopes of actually using them - instead of hoarding them. In there right now, I've got Candy Shoppe, Back 40, Documentary, Continental, Who's who and Yearbook. A nice variety there. (I wish I could say that they are my only kits to be used - but sadly they're not)
I took away my silhouette and replaced it with my trimmer. (Not sure how this will go)
Shifted my silhouette over here with my thickers and my cardstock. (Look - clean desk)
Drawers under desk - adhesives, buttons & bling & brads, and alphas at the bottom.
Drawer- Ink pads and bits
Here's the guilty admission - basket of kits. Naughty naughty.
And....another box of kits. Oops.
I really need to get scrapping. Or purging!
