Wow. Can't believe it's been a month since i posted. My computer needed a service and the internet crashed. While that was being sorted, we got the house ready for the coming Festive Season. I so love the Christmas Season. Christmas Tree's are up-Check. Mantle decorated-Check. Front door decorated-Check. This weekend our outdoor christmas tree and reindeer sliegh will go up:) I'm also busy getting the childrens holiday class projects finalised. Lots of fun crafting to be had by all. My friend Belinda from Prettier Painted is having a paint technique workshop on the 24th. So i have been thrift shopping for something that needs a make-over. This can only get messy. YEAH! Pop over to her site to see what lovely things she can create with a lick of paint. www.prettierpainted.co.za

This morning i heard one of my friends has pneumonia. Still having my bits and pieces out from the card i made for a sketch challenge, i thought i'd make her a quick get well card. I saw this simple, but striking card on twopeasinabucket "Finally Friday" video.
Definately making more of these for my stash.
Happy Scrapping and thank you for visiting.

Well. After yesterdays reflecting, and feeling sorry for myself. I decided to find a challenge and get crafty. This challenge is from twopeasinabucket. Saturday card sketch challenge. Here is the card sketch and card Kimber Mcgray made. This is so cheerful and summery.
Here's my take on the sketch. I have been wanting to put my sewing machine to paper, but never get around to it, but luckly this time my sewing machine was on the table and i added my first ever stitching to paper. I was expecting a disaster, but all turned out good. Excuse the inking of my tag. I had sewn it down and then realized i never inked it. I suppose it's the imperfections that make it unique. LOL!!!
Thanks for visiting, and Happy Scrapping!!!
Why don't YOU visit Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber 9.1.12 - Two Peas in a Bucket and be challenged to create.

I was so inspired by Amy of Living Locurto's 40th colours and decor, i just had to use the wonderful bright colours of orange, pink and purple. pop over to her pintrest boards. Making the very easy, but striking pom-poms. Loads of tutorials on youtube. My Martha Stewart scoreboard came in handy for the big rosettes.
Boy how time has flown. We've had my daughters 8th birthday, my 40th, with a bit of crafting in between.Here are some images of my daugthers birthday goodies. I had to do the cowgirl cookie mix from bakerella. Pop over to her site www.bakerella.com for the recipe and free printable to go with it. Will be back tomorrow with some 40th bithday crafts i did.

StampTV had a challenge on making your own designer paper background. I decided to try Gina's bleach technique. I loved it. Pretty cool effect. I will be trying other colour cardstock with this technique. Go on try it. Stamp your image, emboss it and colour in with bleach. you'll be amazed at the end result, and it's so easy. To help the bleach along use your heatgun.

I just love these vintage book bundles for home decor.I could never find the right colour scheme for my home, so along comes my mom and gives me these blank hardwood books.
Now i can co-ordinate them with my own colour scheme. Mmm... What to do, Paint ? Cover ? Distress ? The choices are endless. Will keep you posted on my progress.

Well. I thought a new look blog would get me inspired to get blogging regularly. Let's see if it works. LOL!!! Here are two cards i made for the 2 release party challenges of stamptv.
1st one was the pink challenge. You had to stamp or colour something that was not usually pink. I went with the frog as i don't have alot of GinaK design stamps yet.
2nd was a masculine clean and simple card.

The last months of 2011 were busy with this and that, but not to much crafting. I did do a few challenges and crafts which were fun over the holiday season. Now the builders are at work building my studio and a few extras for the family. Come March i'll have my own space. Yeah!! Here are some crafts i got to do. Hope there will be lots of time for crafting this year.
This was a colour challenge from two peas in a bucket. A coke tin was the colour inspiration. It worked great for me, as my daughters 7th birthday party were the same colours and the photos worked great for this challenge. Now i have one less page to scrap.
A Stamp TV inspired Note book and pen.
I gave my friends each one for the start of the new year.
A project using all T!m Holtz products. What an amazingly creative and inspiring guy. Gotta love T!m.
