Scrapz Do or Die Weeks 7 & 8 and a new comp!

Today saw the end of our Do or Die competition over at Scrapz.Biz...and the lucky winner was Maree!  A huge congrats to you Maree!  I can now reveal my last two sample pages...

Here's my sample page for week 7 (details can be found HERE.)...


Once again I've been digging through my old photos and can't believe I haven't scrapped these pics of Madi before!  They were taken on her first birthday...she was such a little sweetheart!


Love that little cheeky grin...





And finally this was my week 8 sample page (details HERE)...


These are some older photos too...although as you can see not quite as old as the previous ones!  Feels good to be catching up on pages for Madi's album and filling in some gaps.




That might be the end of our Do or Die comp but we've got a new competition starting next week...Scrapz Scrapbook Sleuth!  It's going to be lots of fun!!



Each week you will be given a common sketch and three sample pages.
Your task is to work out the five (5) common items on these pages and include them on your layout.

We'll have a $20 voucher to give away each week.

There will be a secret vote each week and we will award a 'Scrapz Super Scrapbook Sleuth' at the end of the comp who will win a $100 Crate scrapbooking pack and a runner-up who will receive a $50 Crate prize pack.

We'd love for you to come on over and join in the fun!

Scrapz Do or Die Comp weeks 5 & 6...

Today shares are my sample pages from weeks 5 & 6 of our Do or Die Comp over at Scrapz.Biz.  (You can find all the details and weekly challenges HERE.)  Again we were given dvd movie covers as inspiration for our pages along with additional criteria we had to include.

Here's my week 5 sample (Details can be found HERE.)...


For this week's criteria we had to have a Christmas symbol clearly visible so I used a star.  We also had to have the word 'hard' somewhere on the page.


Here's my title...



We also had to have a 'stacked' element on the page.  I've layered chipboard and paper pieces to create my own embellishment here...


Now for my week 6 page (details can be found HERE)...


The criteria for this week's challenge stated that we had to include something related to flying so I used  little chipboard butterflies...


We also had to have the word 'time' somewhere on the page...


And we had to include a cord.  I've used some twine on my journalling tag here...


I only have two more page left to share for this comp!  I'll be back soon.

Scrapz Do or Die Comp Weeks 3 & 4...

Today I've got my weeks 3 and 4 sample pages to share from our Scrapz Do or Die Comp.  (You can see all details of the comp and the weekly challenge HERE.) Again we were provided with a dvd movie cover to use as inspiration and there were other criteria we needed to include on the page as well.

Here's my week 3 page (details can be found HERE)...


I've used gorgeous Echo Park For The Record 2 goodies to complete this page.  I really love this combination of colour...


Two of the criteria were that we had to use a weather symbol and a word relating to the weather which you can see in this little cluster of embellishments...


Another closeup...



This is my week 4 page (details can be found HERE.)...


This time the criteria included something relating to fashion so I added some little wooden cameras to my page...

Here's my title...


We also had to have something hidden and a note somewhere on the page so I had a hidden journalling tag here...


And some photos tucked away inside the envelope here...


Another close-up just for fun...


I'll be back tomorrow with my week 5 & 6 pages. :)

Scrapz Do or Die Comp...

At the beginning of September we started a fun new comp over at Scrapz.Biz called Do or Die.  You can see all the details and weekly challenges HERE.   Each week Heike provides us with a new dvd movie cover and we need to draw inspiration from the cover for our pages and include certain criteria.

Here is my week one page.  (Details can be found HERE.)


Now I have to admit this isn't the greatest page I've ever done but I'm happy to have these photos down on paper.  I hardly ever scrap my own birthday so it's nice to have at least one to add to the family album!


I do love these fun photos...


Here's my week 2 sample page (all details can be seen HERE.)...


These photos really do make me giggle!  This is the kids with their Nanna V.  We only get to see her once a year or so but they really do have so much fun with her!


I made my own banner across the bottom of the page using a mix of chipboard pieces, stickers, buttons and a mini playing card...


I'll be back soon with my week 3 and 4 layouts. :)

Misting Two Ways...

Last month was my turn to do the monthly tutorial over at Scrapz.Biz and I decided to have a play with some  Studio Calico mists and masks.  You can find my full tutorial HERE.



First of all I used the mask and mists as you usually would on this page...


I used white mist against the grey background and I love the result!  (I also adore that super cute pic of Ayden...gosh he's so little!)


Here's a close-up of the title and journalling...


I love these cute little wooden Studio Calico cameras too!


For my second project I used the mask as a stamp for my background on this 'thankyou Teacher' card...


After I stamped the image I misted over the top with the same colour to get this effect...


It was fun playing with my mists again! I'll have to make a point of using them more often.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Park Fun...

This next scrappy share is a page I did for Basic Grey showcase a few weeks back over at Scrapz.Biz.  I hadn't used Basic Grey in a long time...but I found I quite liked this Clippings range!


I teamed the Clippings papers with some old Basic Grey Marjolaine Woollies embellies that I've been hanging onto for ages.  Glad I've finally used them...they were too cute to waste!


Here's a close-up of my journalling and the title...


 I'll be back tomorrow with another page to share!

Daddy's Girl...

Do you like Echo Park goodies?  I do!  We did an Echo Park Showcase week recently over at Scrapz.Biz and this is the page I came up with of Madi and Paul using the Echo Park Happy Days collection.


I really love the gorgeous mix of colours in this range..so pretty!


I've also added in some American Crafts Thickers for the title.  These are two of my favourites at the moment...


Thanks for stopping by!
