A Fiskars Croppy Weekend

Today in Adelaide we have a full house for this weekend's Fiskars crop.

The house will be full of old faces and some new faces of those who have come back to join us.

Looking forward to sharing with everyone some fun and exciting ways to use Fiskars tools.

Today's crop is not for the light hearted however as we will be making lots of mess, stitching up a storm, and stamping our little hearts out.

I can't wait !

Here's a full sample of the layouts we will be creating today.

Layout 1 -

Layout 2 -

Layout 3 -

Better go and get myself reading for a busy day of scrapping and lots of Fiskars fun.

TSO Cyber Crop Challenges

I joined in a few weeks ago with The Scrappers Outlet Cyber Crop.

It was a fun filled weekend of show related challenges.

I was rather busy that weekend with family commitments, but I did manage to get the card challenge completed.

Card Challenge - Was to use the colours Brown, Red and Yellow.

Here's the cards I created using this colour combo.

I also was lucky enough to set one of the challenges.

The challenge I set was to create a layout with NO photos and using a ride at the show as inspiration.

Here's my sample I created:

"Stick with Helmar in September" - September Challenge!

It is time to "Stick with Helmar in September!".

Helmar is excited for our September Challenge!

This month the featured sketch is again by Helmar Designer (and inspiration extraordinaire), Lydell Quin:

Here's my take on the sketch:

Remember this can be a layout, card, altered project or anything that comes to your creative mind!

In the USA they are Back to School and entering Fall, while in Australia Spring is approaching and Father's Day is in September.

We encourage you to share those masculine projects too!

You MUST use Helmar adhesives.

Remember, if you submit a project you are automatically entered for a chance to win a Helmar goodie prize pack!

Get Ready and show us your "STICK WITH HELMAR IN SEPTEMBER"!

Mad About Scrapping - September Kit

How excited do you think I was when I received my first Design team pack from Mad about Scrapping.....

I was beside myself when I opened the box to find this paper range sitting there waiting for me to play with..

Hehehehe... I laugh everytime I see it though as Leanne and I had this rather funny conversation on Facebook about the paper range a few days ago...

And YES!!! I have met my match again with ANOTHER fellow paper

What was that you say...

WELL.. have you ever sniffle you paper when you first open up your kits for the first time... REALLY good quality paper smells and feels SOOOOO nice!!!
Okay so enough dribble about paper sniffing or I will have to have myself commited for this habit... lol.

When I finally pulled myslef away fro how nice the kit was I was able to get creative so easier with this really yummy kit.

Here's the three layouts I designed

Layout - 1

Layout 2 -

Layout 3 -

Make sure you head over to the Mad About Scrapping's Facebook Page to check out what else we have been up to !

Off to play with next months design team kit ;0)
