For your little Prince & Princesses

We love the vintage style and grunge that is in vogue at the moment but we also have to remember our children with their childhood dreams.
Most children will come across Disney sometime in their lives and little girls love to dress up as their favourite princess. Below are two Disney Princess papers, Aurora Heart has glitter detail and Cinderella is a gorgerous blue and single sided paper.

We can't forget the boys and who better to share your story with than Buzz Lightyear and the Gang. These images would be easy to cut out and mount with foam tape to give dimension. I thought the little denim car stickers would be fun on a card or layout.

Have fun with them as you record and remember your childhood loves and dreams.!


Not a "Spring Clean" but a "Summer Clean Out"!

Have a look in the "Special" at Scrap Box NZ and you will find some great products with 30% off. I recently purchased some more shelving to display papers and I still have more papers than shelving to put them on - so out they go!

Special produces included:

Papers (Basic Grey, Kaisercraft, Pink Paislee, Bo Bunny, Making Memories and more),
Rub-ons, Stamps, Embellishments, Books, Chipboard and others.

I'll be adding more items over the next few days - at present there are 248 products!

Grab a bargin!


Echo Park - Little Boy

This new range by Echo Park is just adorable, as is the layout in the post below by Sally using this collection. Check them out in the shop and keep them in mind next time you have a boys layout or card you want to make. My favourites are the buttons and stars papers. All the papers are double sided and some come with 4 patterns on the back in 6x6 - great value at $2 a sheet.


Fresh and Fun!

Well here I am (Sally that is)- haven't quite fallen off the face of the earth LOL. Back with a layout. Have you seen Echo Park 'Little Boy' range? I think it's neat- fresh and fun colours and patterns. Suits my wee fellas down to a tee.

I used a sketch from http://creative-scrappers.com/ to get my creative juices flowing (# 124).

Most of the products I've used are Scrap Box NZ's (Echo Park PP, Bazzill cardstock. Color Box ink, Jenni Bowlin button, Gingham ribbon, Baker's Twine, Pastel Glitter and Red Wagon Brads).
Happy New Year lovely scrappers!


All over for another year!

I can now officially say that Christmas is now packed away for another year. Squeezed the last of the decorations into the cupboard and shut the door quickly.
Winter CHA is soon to start in America with lots of new collections, embellishments and wonderful ideas to get us all back into scrapping for the year. I'm already getting some previews sent my way and I can see some big decisions are going to be made on what to buy! Most of the products won't be on our shores until March, but there are some great things to look forward to.


Did you make a New Year's Resolution?

Some people do make them and others just believe that you make the year your own, whatever life sends your way.

Many people look forward to the New Year for a new start on old habits.

Your Merry Christmas may depend on what others do for you. But your Happy New Year depends on what you do for others.

Irish toast
In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want.


Long hot summer days ...

These are my girls at Pohara Beach in Golden Bay. Days like this make it hard to get in the scrapping mood, but while we are out and about, some great photo opportunities are being had.

Hope you are enjoying your summer holidays - Back to work for some tomorrow!


Welcome to 2011

Happy New Year to everyone, although a little late.

My family and I have just returned from a great trip away. Started in Franz Josef then Wanaka for 5 nights and on the way home stayed in Christchurch for 2 nights. Avoided the earthquakes but not the nor'wester. We did some real touristy things - kiwi's and hot pools in Franz, amazing waterfalls through Haast area, toy & transport museum, puzzling world at Wanaka. Saw Cromwell & Alexander. Earnslaw, Gondola & Luge at Queenstown and shopped and had Tea at Arrowtown.

We were watching the girls on a playground in Wanaka and a Japanese tourist came up to my husband and said "you have a very beautiful country, you are so lucky, so beautiful". He was so right and it was great to see as much as we did and have the good weather too. Took heaps of photos, so now there is lots of scrapping to do. Something I hope to do more of this year.

Looking forward to a great 2011.
