    Scrapbook Fantasies – Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #4/2014

    This is the last of my backlog of unshared creations – well as far as I can tell at this point in time.  And I am going to warn you that there are a few photographs in this post as it is about a three page Project Life style spread. I created this spread for the Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #4/2014 – yes a couple of weeks ago I know – but better late than never. I got out my Cuttlebug, an Embossing Folder, some mist (of course) and ink (of course) to create the cards from my scrap bag. Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

    Scrapbook Fantasies – Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #3/2014

    Not to jinx myself….but I am on a roll with the Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Challenges for 2014.  I’m up to week 3 and I’m still creating.  Admittedly I am creating in a Project Life style for these challenges, however with a bit of procrastination they can take as long if not longer than a regular layout. I try to limit myself to a realistic amount of time when creating these layouts, so as not to defeat the purpose of creating in this style. These photographs are from a trip to Tannum Sands Beach quite some time ago – 2004 to be exact.  I chose to use Project Life Pocket Design H…

    Scrapbook Fantasies – Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #2/2014

    Well I made it to and through a second Weekly Challenge with Scrapbook Fantasies.  Once again I have created a Project Life style layout, even though it is rather smallish – using a Design H pocket page. The photographs are of my friend Heidi and I at a convention many years ago, and my journaling reads: “Heidi and I have been friends for many years.  We were first introduced by Joy from Bumble Bee.  These photos were taken at an EK Success Convention in Brisbane.  Being a woman in Business can sometimes be lonely, except when you have friends like Heidi.” Of all the hats that I wear the “Businesswoman”…

    Scrapbooking for Myself

    I love this layout that I created using a photograph from the Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat at Agnes Water in 2006.  We are fast approaching our 11th Retreat Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat, which will be held at Kinka Beach.  The reason for this layout is that I just felt like creating, and went with the flow of my own creativity. I created the background using lots of water (until it pools) and several colours of mist from Shimmerz.  Letting a piece like this dry naturally keeps the warping to a minimum, however if your in a rush use a heat tool and deal with the warping (chocolate and coffee help). I also created a…

    Once Upon A Sketch – June 2013

    I had a fabulous time creating this layout of Naomi-Jon and my obsession with photographing her.  (I will return in the next few days to reveal where and when I created this layout, and with whom)  I have used the Once Upon A Sketch June sketch created by the fabulously talented Nadia Cannizzo.  I have used a tonne of Prima flowers as usual with a bit of mixed media goodness on the background. I have turned the sketch on its side to start with and created a mat for my main background (as I usually do).  The background has some mist droplets and splats of Distress Stain.  I have also…
