As Summer Comes to a Close

Good Morning Everyone,

Well isn't the year flying by.....can you believe it's only 2 days until the end of January? 

Which means it's nearly the end of summer....*insert sad face* - There are so many memories captured in summertime.

Today I am sharing with you layouts #2 and #3 that I created with the November "OMG THIS KIT IS PERFECT FOR ALL THE SUMMER PHOTOS" Cropaholic Kit

There are so many amazing products in each kit you will receive the instructions and materials for the three layouts in the kit that I designed. Just a reminder......

Especially if they are scrapped..........

This layout was super fun to create and it also uses old stuff in your stash that you probably never thought you would use - the possibilities are endless 

Some of the other products I have used for these layouts can be purchased in the Shop and Crop shop. Click on the product to check it out 

I really hope you like the layouts I have created and that I have given you some inspirational mojo for scrapping your summer memories.

Happy Scrapping...

Some Summer Inspiration

Good Afternoon my friends, 

We all get busy in our lives and get consumed with the going ons of others: in saying that, over the last 5 years of juggling full time shift work (Nursing), 4 children, a husband and a household I have realised that no matter how hectic life gets its always important to make time for yourself and to do what you love...even if it is for only a small time of that day. Keeping yourself happy means you are better at keeping others happy.

This is where we come in at SHOP AND CROP to help you manage your time and make the most of your day....... A CROPAHOLIC KIT I hear you say....OMG what a fantastic idea !!!!

Cropaholic Kits are our 'deluxe' monthly kit containing approx $79.00 worth of co-ordinating products and instruction sheets for two to three layout designs (or sometimes BTP projects/cards etc.) for just $73.95 per month (for subscribers). A perfect way to get those memories created without having to take precious time away from other things in your life.

Today I am sharing one of the layouts from the NOVEMBER CROPAHOLIC KIT that is still available featuring products from 49 & Market Sea, Sand and Sun Collection that was designed by MOI.....This kit includes:

  • 1 49 & Market Sea Sand and Sun Collection 12 x 12 Paper Pad Collection
  • 1 49 & Market Sea , Sand and Sun Embellishment Sheet
  • 1 set of Scrapmatts Chipboard
  • 1 Colourblast Shimmer Spray
  • Specialty Mix Media Texture.
  • exclusive embellishment pack 
  • Cardstock
  • 1 Bubble stamp

Check out the individual pages and some of the products I have used that are included in the kit:

And a Close Up of some one of the embellishments:

This is just one of 3 layouts that come in this pack - all with instructions - and let's face it, sometime's we just don't want to think about what we are creating......agreed???

Have a think about it....I'm sure you will agree...and remember...

Time to Scrap the Christmas Cheer

Good Afternoon,

I have some more festive inspiration from the Shop and Crop Kaisercraft Kit that can be purchased HERE ...this is the 3rd and 4th layouts that I have been able to create from this kit packed with awesome goodies and guess what.......I still have leftovers that I could have created more.

Hot Tip: It's OK to turn a pattern paper around the wrong can still work nicely :)

The only thing I added here that was not provided in the kit were the chipboard stars and the string of pearls. Here are some close ups.......

Here is my second layout for you all...

Hot Tip: I have used both sides of the patterned paper and the title strip - nothing pretty goes to waste here

The only thing I added here that was not provided in the kit were the pearls and the Idea-ology Label Letters but you can buy them in the shop HERE. Here are some close ups....

That's it from me today.......just some inspiration to help you wit your 2017 Christmas Photos

Till next time

Happy Scrapping

Can You Believe It's Already Christmas

Good Morning Everyone,

This is my first post for you all so I'm really excited to show you what I have been busy working on for you all.

I was given the SEPTEMBER KAISERCRAFT KIT to showcase alternative uses for the amazing range of papers and embellishments. 
The Kaisercraft Kits are a monthly kit containing approximately $30 worth of co-ordinating products and instruction sheets for two layout designs for just $29.95 per month (for subscribers).
The September Kaisercraft Kit was designed by Sandra Scott and contains products from The Letters to Santa Collection. You can still buy this as a one of purchase for just $36.95.

The first page I created was a double layout - 

Here are some close ups for you all - 

Left Hand Side

Right Hand Side
And a few little intricate details (because photos never do layouts justice) - 

The second page I created was a single layout - 

With a few more little intricate details - 

I had so much fun with this and face it - we never can have too many christmas photos to scrap

That's it from me for today, happy scrapping and if you would like a discount from ANY products in the STORE don't forget to put the code BL5 in the checkout

52 Weeks of Gratitude - Week 9



I'm not really understanding what is being asked in reference to "How did you do and feel" so i'm just going to go with what makes me  feel good......... 
I can't really narrow things down too much because there are a lot of things that I rely on to boost my spirits however I think there is nothing funnier than reading something on social media that is truthful and relates to oneself. Let's go with .......

1. The Everyday Life Of A Mother

2. On Being "The Mother"

3. On being "ME"

4. 1st World Problems

However: If I ever got to park in my garage we may not have this problem :)
And one last one for good luck - 

5. On Adulthood

There is nothing like your "truth" smacking you in the face, the best thing about it is that you can have a good laugh at the way you are, the way you act and what life throws at you.

Sunshine, Happiness and Love Always
