Fantabulous Storage ideas.

Heya Scrappers,
While unpacking from camp mojo I took the opportunity to rearrange some of my overflowing flairs, washi tape and stencils.
Here's what I did with minimal help from the man
 I bought magnetic sheets from spotlight, I just reused some broken frames and BAM I recycled and have two empty glass jars. Plenty of room to buy more too. 😒 VERY important!
 TWO hooks And a Length of dowel. I did get the Masculine one To use his screwdriver because it's nice To let Them help sometimes and hey presto more empty Glass jars. Plenty of room for More 😒 VERY IMPORTANT

This was tricky. How do I let Them air after drying Without taking Over The kitchen rack. Move over scrap mags I used My Mag holder I got From office works. And I Leave them In My spray box. Lots of room for more 😒 VERY IMPORTANT

So it's a Start hey. And It looks fabulous if I don't say so Myself. Time to Get creative now.

Stay Scrappy

It's been awhile

Hi Scrappers,
It's been awhile since blogging. Though not scrapping. I was lucky enough to attend camp mojo in the Hunter Valley.
I'm working full time now too so Omg HOW am I going to keep this up? (Barocca and wine)

I'm going to show you a bit from one from the camp classes and one from home.
 This is a Lisa Oxley inspo. I think I went nuts on stamping so I think I'll try it again another day but look at the layers!
And this is me beginning my love affair with gelatos.
Don't mind the bad photography. It's not like I have the time to take good ones. For now at least
Im going to get my creativity back to priority.
Stay tuned to the rest of camp mojo fun
Stay scrappy

Jot Magazine Mood Board - Everyday

Hello There,
As I previously posted I was overwhelmed with the inspiration that Jot magazine produced this month.

In my most recent nap time I whipped up this little number for the mood board they have going this month

I made this out of scraps even the back page is a bit of card board from a delivery. I was so tempted to layer up. But I kept coming back to basics to let the photo speak for itself.
Its not perfect but i love it anyway. Scrappers dont make mistakes we just originally create

Stay classy

All Dressed Up

Hello There,

Materials used - Glitz Designs Dapper Dans Collection and American Crafts Thickers.

I've been suffering from a scrappers block recently. I have a few mojo unblockers that usually work let me share with you.
1. Go on a crop at my local store. All those inspiring layouts around me and giggling with my scrapping gal pal Nicole USUALLY gets the juices flowing. Not this time I fell flat and went home earlier than I planned.
2. When Happy Mail comes. I get such inspo from my subscription to a piece of cake designs. Raquel's kits are fabulous I get to play with products that i don't usually find in Australia. I opened that kit and looked at it for a week.
3. Cleaning the house. Nothing like not having any mothers guilt to deprive you of your 'me' time. My cupboards are clean and organised but that still didnt spark the inspo. JEEZ what can I do.
& 4. flipping through a scrap magazine. I love a few mags but this month's favourite was Jot Magazine I dont know if you have ever seen it but this months editor note was enlightening and shows me that sometimes you have to take a leap to get your dream. As my favourite JotGirl always says grab a cuppa and have a look. Now Im all buzzed and ready to play in my office. #BRINGONNAPTIME

Hello Scrapaholic Bloggers,

We all love Teresa Collins right?! This is my play with Teresa Collins. I don't memory keep/project life etc for everyday.

So four pages using my favourite brand is shared below;

Tip - If you use clear envelopes or even just recycling small embellishment packets for sequin pockets

Beautiful Boy-

Tip-You don't have to use stencils for paint only. I used Teresa Collins stencil for my stitched title
 A Day in Sand/Dirt-
 Materials used Teresa Collins We R Memory Keepers Cards, MME Lost and found Collection, Kaszazz rub ons, American Craft Thickers

Tip-Don't be afraid to go outside the pocket when creating

3 layouts just for you

Hello scrapping bloggins,
What a month this has been huh???.
I'll give you a quick update. My family went through Easter, a trip to the farm, an attempted suicide (not is but close family) closing day care, getting a job, quitting that job, a broken camera, then broken sewing machine, then broken internet, a tooth extraction and most scary our first school holidays. And we 4 survived it all, even thrived I believe.
I did scrap I promise ... not as much as you can understand but when things like the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy coming in one month its a pretty big deal. (and secretly I cant wait to scrap them all)

so first this is Love
Materials used, piece of cake march kit, embellishments from spotlight, Kaszazz, dear Lizzy and flourish with a bling

Next Layout is called Five
This is for the white with one challenge, I completed these next two at a crop day at with a girl friend. That was a fun twelve hours. 
Materials used are card stock, my minds eye and bits of scrap embellishments are dear Lizzy, Heidi swap, kaisercraft and resin flowers

Final layout for today is Party, for black with two challenge
Materials used - card stock, black coordinations and black basic grey, embellishments are amy tangerine, piece of cake flair, paper flowers, ribbon and a bit of flourish with a bling, theres also a rub on there but I don't known where its from I'm surprised it still works.

Ok girls you stay scrappy and ill catch ya next month.

I heart you by Amy, using fabric

HELLOoooooOOOOO scrappers,

Completed a sketch challenge today from


I like it when the baby is asleep long enough to get the mojo going


Materials used Bo Bunny Zip a Doo Doodle Collection, Love Notes Photo overlays, and Paperloft License Plate letters.
I made use of some material from Eli's baby clothes to make that heart.

First cut strips of matching material into long strips,
Weave this material and sit it on a piece of card.
Mix PVA glue and a little water to slather the weaved material until its evenly moist.
Wait til completely dry, cut into desired shape and stitch a lovely border.

Its fiddly but give it a try great way to keep some baby clothes and not let it take up space in a wardrobe.

I love me some such strong colours.

Hope you like it

Dreams by Amy, WW1

This weekend plans were that I would get a few hours in my office. I cleaned, baked, kicked my man out to go for a ride, walked the dog and took the kids to the park. I was ready I was excited and then I got unwell and all my hard work was for zilch. Isnt it just Murphy's law?
But I got this one page done so its not a total loss.

This has been published with 

This is my WW1 challenge

I played with watercolours and embossing for this one. It was fun and I'm happy with the abstract background I got out of it.
That's it for now.
