Layouts & February DT kit

Lately I feel like I’ve been rushing my pages a bit and that means I’m not always that happy with the results, so I’m slowing down, maybe just doing one page in a day, not three. I’m much happier with these.

This one is the first from my February DT kit that just arrived.

Idea 7: Make the butterfly 3D and use glitter on it

Idea 8: Stitch a double-border, off-setting one.

Idea 9: Use mini tags for the journalling.

Here’s my kit from Anna’s Craft Cupboard for this month – beautiful as always.

Basic Grey – Sugar Rush

Bella Blvd – Plastino

Kaiser – Made with Love

This year I will

try to put something new (by that I mean something I haven’t done before) on every layout. I’m bored with the old stuff (LOL), so here goes…..

These 2 layouts (above & below) using Crate Paper’s Seasons Collection, are for the Scrapbook n bits January competition.

Idea 1: Use different lettering for each word in the title.

Idea 2: Double stitch around the border.

Idea 3: Use numbers instead of words in the title.

This one uses Kaiser pps.

Idea 4: Stitch on the photo.

And this one uses Bo Bunny Princess stickers.

Idea 5: Hand-draw the flowers.

Idea 6: add a mini tag.

January DT kit layouts

Been busy finishing off my pages from this months DT pack. Always love what Anna sends me. Did this for my Mums birthday – she always wants more lettering & embellishments.

And inside:

This shows what is on the chipboard buttons.

This was made from this Imaginisce Collection called SWEET CHERI.

I also got these in my DT kit.


MME Life Stories Collection 1

Did this one by covering the photos with a piece of paper then spraying with Vanilla Breeze & Denim Glimmer mist.

Love how this one turned out with the raw tree.

Love this one too – gave the bird a wintery look by tracing it in white gel pen – great for christmas.

And I found that matting the photo in cream or white really gives the dull paper a lift.

Masters Entries

I believe the Masters List is out.  Congratulations to those 10 ladies.  Here’s my entries.

My Greatest Achievement.

Gees, that title looks so flouro (its not in real life – LOL). Hmmm, how’d that finger smudge get on the lens??? Kiiiids!






Not 12×12 page.



Double page :Family

I believe this one got an HONOURABLE MENTION but its not my favourite. My favourite is the RELAX page. I love it and I stayed true to myself when making it.  I thought I’d try entering the Masters just once for the experience and gave it my best shot but I don’t really think I had a chance because I didn’t do an OTP – its not my thing.
