It's been a hive of activity in my scrap room today. Being Santa's helper, I've wrapped the presents, made the tags, got the bits & bobs for the Stocking's all ready. Now it's time to sit back with a glass of wine and wonder what I've forgotten!
or I should say months - August, September, October & November. Sister's, daughter's, Brother-in-Law's (two of which are 50) and my husband. Three 50's, a 15 years, & a tenth birthday coming up.
Below is Brooke's birthday card and as you can see she turned 15. I really enjoyed doing this card with new flowers from Green Tara.
Green Tara Roses, Small Green Leaves, Cherry Blossom, 4cm Heirloom, 2.5cm Black paper flower, Maya Road Trinket Pin and Shrinky Dink Happy Birthday. All products listed are in stock at Scrap Box NZ. The Banner stamp & Glitter Alpha & diamante's were from my own stash.
It was a while ago now and took me along time to get started.
My problem was what papers to use on this Mini Drawers by Kaisercraft.
I decided on the Sweet Nothings Collection by Kaisercraft which you can purchase from Scrap Box NZ's shop. I first painted the whole unit in cream folk art paint (just what I had about).
I loved certain parts of the papers and wanted to use them on the drawers and the sides. So I measured the drawers and placed them on the best bits to showcase the birds, bike and birdcage.
I had heaps of fun creating the top with Kaisercraft and Green Tara flowers. Maya Road trinket pins, bakers twine, seam binding, pearls and that gorgeous butterfly is shrinky dink.
I don't know why I put it off for so long. It was a great project and didn't take long at all when I knew what papers and embellishments I wanted to use. Sometimes that's the hard bit, deciding on what in the stash to use. If I've inspired you to have a go doing the Mini Drawers, they are in stock at present. If you find they are out of stock the Mini Drawers can be ordered for you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
All items in this post can be purchased from Scrap Box NZ's shop.

Great news for those of you working and still couldn't get here on Wednesday's, hopefully will see you on the last Saturday of each month. I'll put the dates on the Website & Blog, so keep an eye on them. I know near the end of the year there may be a few different Saturday's due to holiday's already booked. I'll give you lots of warning, so you don't miss out. Hope to see you soon Happy Scrapping
Held this weekend in Nelson. My husband and daughter walked last night from 11pm to 1.30am. A fantastic turnout with 105 teams. Great opportunity to come together as a community and remember and celebrate those affected by Cancer. Unfortunately it seems we all know or know of someone who has been affected by this terrible disease. There are however times to celebrate too. These Breast Cancer symbol ribbons would be great to add to a layout. Sold by half a metre they can be folded as a tag or used as a strip. Found here at Scrap Box NZ shop.
When I purchased these ribbons 5% of the sale was donated to Breast Cancer Research.
