Christmas Scrap Page

Hey there, I have been having a bit of a muck around with my scrapbooking lately, so here is a piccy of one of my last pages I have done. Christmas last year.....eeeekkk, I thought I had better get cracking with Christmas this year just around the corner. Nothing like being behind in your scrapbooking hey..... I used the snow swirled stamp set and red rhinestone brads which I took out of there silver holders just leaving the rhinestones themselves. I have also used the new circle scissors to cut the large circles and the 1 3/4" circle punch to cut the green circles which I then embossed with my cuttlebug. The colours I have used are Real Red, Handsome Hunter and Basic Black..... I followed the latest sketch from scrapsketch for my layout. I am loving there sketches at the moment.
To celebrate the Summer Mini going live on Tuesday I am participating in the ESAD-SU blog hop where you will have the chance to hop from blog to blog and view some fantastic projects all made with new stuff out of the Summer Mini. I have a Scrap Page to show you so be sure to check back here on Tuesday to have a look........

Scrapbook Page

Hi there, I am back from a lovely weekend in Sydney for regionals, Two of my friends and myself left on friday and came back on Sunday. We had an excellant time, but then it was back to the real world. I have had two days of kindy orientation and now hopefully I can stay home for the week and catch up on all my jobs around here. Which seriously includes dust and bug removal. We had a massive dust storm when I was in Syndey and the night before I left came the bugs by the millions so I have only half cleaned up. Here is a scrapbook page I have done while playing with my circle scissors. I just love it for scrapbooking and we got some more fantastic ideas for its use at regionals..... I carn't wait to play with it some more... Hopefully this afternoon I am going to get some time in for stamping I want to have a play with the sweet treat cups.... While we were in Sydney we took the opportunity to go and see New Moon part two of the twilight saga. I must say I really loved the movie, it was great, I carn't wait till it comes out on DVD.... I would certainly go and see it again, I have always been Team Edward but gee after seeing that movie I might be swapping teams, anyone who has seen the movie will no what I Here is a piccy of a couple of can I say we just had heaps of fun.....We were trying to pose right not to get to many chins.....another tip from

Scrapbook Page

I have been having a play today with some of my photo's. I Scrapbooked Nicholas's Preschool Concert with the I wish simply scrappin kit. I cut the heading out with my Cricut Machine using the Design Studio software where I welded the letters together. This is my new toy at the moment, with heaps of thanks to Jenny for buying it for me for my birthday. I just love this software it is brillant. It gives me so many options, I am sure I am only using just a few..... Practice makes perfect...... Sorry but I decided to blurr out the photo's because it wasn't just my children involved, but you will get the general idea of the page anyhow.....It was a really really simple page to complete because everything was in the scrappin kit.

I also had a play with the New Circle Scissors today out of the upcoming Summer Mini Catty. I can say I just love it, it is sooooo easy to cut your circles with......I have heaps of really nice things in my box that arrived yesterday, I am just not sure what to play with

Circle Thanks

I had some time to play along with Keesh's Challenge this week. It has been soooo long since I have played along, it really can be quite theraputic stamping at times..... The colours for the Challenge were Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla. These are the colours I have used here with my Circle Circus stamp and the thanks so much is from Trendy Trees. I finished the card of with a Silver Paper clip and some twine. I needed a Thank you card for a male to this fits the bill I think.......

XMas Cards

I have had fun playing with the Christmas Classics stamp set today. I wanted to make a friend of mine some Christmas Cards as a thank you gift. So I pulled out my Christmas Classics stamp set and stamped away. I have just focused the cards around this set and just made multiple's of each card. For the first three of the cards I used the same layout and just changed the stamp and the colour. Then I tried something a little different for the last card using my markers and some of the scrap DSP that I had laying around from cutting for the Girls Night In. The paper is from the Ski Slope DSP series in the Spring Mini which we will be saying Goodbye to at the end of the month. So if you think you would like to stock up on anything out of the mini just give me a call so I can get it for you......Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday......

Birthday Card

My cousin had a Birthday this week and I seen this card on someone's blog ages ago and just remembered it in my head as to how to make it.......I actually don't no how close I got to the real thing because it sort of has created (or recreated) in my head for a while now..... I just think black and white together look really stunning. I have used Brocade Motifs and Great Friend's and the Scallop Edge Punch. I finished it off with some pearls in the body of the butterfly's. I had my Girl's Night In last nite so now I have finished with that I will be able to show you some of the things we made as well as have some time to play and post a little more.....
