I'm sorry I've been away for so long.. I promised myself I wouldn't let life get in the way, but alas, life has a stronger will than I! Lol
Between wedding planning, moving house, organizing two birthdays and my partner FIFO, doesn't leave much crafting time. 
My new craft room is enormous, I'm so thrilled. Once she's all set up and ready to go, I'll share some pics. Hopefully it won't be too much longer and I can get back into things. 
Hope everyone is doing well :-)

Showcase those Charms Baby!

My mission for this DT entry was to showcase some charms available over at Scrap Goodies, I think I have done an okay job. I have only just started my charm collection so this is my first time working with them. It was fun though, and thank god for glossy accents! THE BEST GLUE EVER! haha

I created this card for my mother-in-laws birthday coming up. I used Prima papers, Prima flowers, Prima crystals.. are we sensing a theme here? lol
Ooo I also got to use my new Prima distress tool, that some fabulous lady gave me for my birthday, it is every bit as cool as I though it was going to be, and GUESS WHAT?!?! Scrap Goodies have them in stock!!

This is also the first time I have played with texture paste.. very cool! I used a stencil and then sprayed some glimmer mist on it to give some colour and a hint of sparkle. Stencil, ribbon, charms, papers, crystals, flowers are all available from Scrap Goodies.. GO CHECK IT OUT! :-)

The one big flower is an I am Roses flower that I coloured with a Copic marker. The owl is made from the Stampin Up Owl Builder punch.

Did I showcase the charms baby?? lol

My First Creative Team Creation

Saturday is Dakoda's 4th Birthday, she is having a full Tinkerbell themed party with a face painter and craft tables to entertain the kidlets.

I used Prima - Fairy Belle papers, Prima Flowers, LOTV Stamp - From all of Us, Stickles, Glossy Accents and of course Copics!

 A close up of the colouring.

Copic colours I used are:
Dog: E53, E55, E57
Cat: W0, W1, W3, W5
Rabbit: C1, C3, C5
Balloon: R11, R20
Flower/Heart: B0000, B000, G000, G00
Background: B0000, C3, C5, C7
The inside of the card, I havent decided yet if I will stamp a sentiment or just write something.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Now go check out Scrap Goodies online store and bag yourself a bargain!

I got a stencil from Scrap Goodies a week or so ago, finally had a chance to play with it and my Glimmer Mists. I coloured up this Wee - Suzi digi awhile ago, so I'm sorry but, I don't have the numbers. The paper collection is Echo Park - Summer Fun, the pearls and rubons I've had in my stash forever. 

Really happy with how she turned out :-)

Thinking of you

Was way out of my comfort zone on this one, following a sketch from Deconstructing Jen (that I flipped) and the "older" style papers. This card is for my Nan, so I think it works. What do you think? I'm totally open to constructive criticism and feedback.

Sorry I didn't write down what Copic colours I used, the paper collection is Prima - Romance, the flowers are also Prima that I coloured with my copics to suit and one singular I am Roses bud, also coloured with Copics. The "thinking of you" is an ancient American Crafts rubon that I've had in my stash forever. I couldn't resist "stickling" the heck out of everything with my favourite Star Dust Stickles.


I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:

Nappy Cake

This is the nappy cake I created to go with the Welcome Baby card...

Didn't know what to do with the dummies so my partner Trav stuck them on top. I think it now looks like a female version of Wall-E! Haha

Not likely to ever make one again, way too fiddly for my liking, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, especially the bow.. That "abc" took forever! :-p

I have used Prima - Jack N Jill papers, Make it Crafty - Corner Flourishes, Kaisercraft - Newborn Rubon and American Crafts Rubon that I bought a million years ago.

Skin: E21, E00, E000
Cheek: R20
Hearts: RV06, RV04 & Glossy Accents

Not Scrap Related.. How to add a Button to your Sidebar

I was so super excited to find out that I had been "Featured" over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, to only discover that I had no clue on how to add the button to my sidebar :-(
Well it took me a bit of research and playing about but I figured it out.

Here's how:

Copy the URL of the button that you want to appear on your sidebar
Go to "Layout" in Blogger
Click on "Add a Gadget" on the sidebar
Scroll down a little and click on "HTML/Javascript"
Paste your URL into the content section, leaving the title blank
Save the changes
VOILA its there

So easy but so complicated to find.. lol

Hope this helps someone and THANKS AGAIN to Tiddly Inks.. Super appreciate the recognition :-)

Old Creations

Sorry for the overload on pics, but I want to get all my old stuff (well the pics I have on my phone anyway) uploaded, then everything from here is new. It probably won't be in chronological order (I'm not that clever haha)
