Vintage themed layouts

Today I have a couple of layouts to show to you. Both were done for Facebook group challenges and both turned out a bit vintage.

The first one I did was for Aussie Scrappers Society. The challenge was to use book paper and the layout be monochromatic. I used a copy of an old photo of my dad when he was little, with his sister and mum as they walked through Sydney. It must of been taken in the early 1940's I reckon.The lady in this photo, my gran, was responsible for getting me into craft. She and my step grandpop used to live down the south coast from Sydney in a lovely little seaside town called Sussex Inlet. We used to go down some school holidays and stay for a few days. I remember one school holidays when I was about 12, she took me to the little local craft shop. I was amazed at everything in there and had no idea what this little visit would start. I bought a small x-stitch that I eagerly started later that day. I couldn't put it down, and the rest is history.

The second one I did was for Scrapsadaisy Scraplift Challenges on Facebook. This time the challenge was a layout we were shown for inspiration.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these and they have given you some inspiration. All the ladies in the two Facebook groups above are lovely, and we love to have you visit us and join in the fun.

Now I must get cracking as I have some ATC's to finish off and lots of other craft goodnes to get into.
Have a scrap happy day.

More Amore

Hi everyone.

Today I have a layout and card I have made using the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Artisan Embellishment Kit. I just love these goodies as they are so me. This was a Designer task for Scrap It With Attitude. We were given a sketch and had to use it as inspiration for our creations.

Sit back, relax and enjoy.

Contact me if you wish to purchase any of the goodies I have used, or if you want to host a workshop.
Cheers for  now,

I am in love...

...with making and decorating little match boxes.

Oh who would of thought that such little boxes could bring such so much fun and creativity out of you. In my other life I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and we had a blog hop in which I was lucky enough to participate in. So I did a match box for that. And then one of the Facebook craft groups I am in, ran another match box swap.

This is the one I did for the SU blog hop. It was filled with cute little gift cards. We had to use items exclusively available during the current Sale-A-Bration promotion.

And this is the one I did for the craft group. The theme was transport.

Thanks for visitng and have a scrap happy day.
