Lest We Forget

Our fallen soilders, Australia & New Zealand united by war. Not a nice way to be united but they are our heros. I am sure that there were ANZAC services all across New Zealand & Australia this morning as dawn broke. Again uniting us all, country & country, young and old. It is nice to see the younger generation turning out for the dawn parades, some in uniforms from various groups and some proudly wearing Grandfathers' and Great-grandfathers' medals.


Kaiser Craft Creations

A few weeks ago I had the KaiserCraft Rep here and she gave me a small sample of items to play with. I thought that I would share two of the creations that I have made up. I have made both of these up using KaiserCraft Patterned Papers. I have a number of their workshop instructions, if any one is interested in one of these, PM me through the forum and I will post one out to you. I will certainly be ordering their new lines of papers, brads, bling and felt ribbon.


May Kits...

OK here is a peak at what you may find in the May Kit - Truly Elegant. Get out those romantic wedding photos for this one.

Remember that some of the smaller embellies could differ slightly from those pictured, but but and cardstock remain the same.


Check them out!!!

Paper Flowers from Green Tara. I have restocked my paper flowers and added some new colours along the way. These are just fantastic for adding that extra zing to a layout. I also have available some 7cm flowers in retail packs of 10. There is Autumn, Winter and Spring to choose from. These are great value, the only trouble is deciding which colours to have!!!


They're Here!!!

YES!!! Basic Grey's Boxer & Sugared have arrived, and they are yummo. I will be loading these as soon as possible so keep a look out in the shop for these. Here is a sneak peak at what will be in store. I have in both of these ranges the patterned papers, olio rubons, buttons and brads. It is just like Christmas opening the boxes when they arrive. These collections will like any of the other Basic Grey ranges will be HOT HOT HOT!!


Reasons Why?

People have varying reasons why they take up the fabulous art of scrapbooking. For me it was 'an out' as I suffered Post Natal Depression once Emma was born. I started when she was about six months old and I haven't looked back. It started as personal therapy then raged into an addiction. I will always look out for that perfect photo to scrap or that item to alter, I will give almost anything ago. Now that I have the website to run my days of scrapping are few and far between, but I enjoy it more because I never know when I'm going to get that next chance. So for the first time in a while I thought that I would share a couple of my creations that I have managed to get completed!!

The Easter Layout was a sketch that Carol set for some of the forum members of Scrap Box NZ, (which I finally completed!!) and the two photos of the card (outside and a pocket on the inside) I made for my sister who turns 30 today. Happy Birthday sis. I used Basic Grey's Infuse papers (Salt & Season) and a piece of lilypad cardstock.
