                                               Flower Garden Hat Pin Set (10 pins) $5.00

Your pack of 10 hatpins comes all packed up and ready to post -

Look at these wonderful new products just launched at Tattered Inspirations! Click on the link under each photo to go straight to the shop!
I created a LO with the Train Journey mini-kit. I also added a handcrafted red flower by Marg Oliver from Bits and Pieces by Marg. Just perfect to scrap photos of little boys who love Thomas The Tank Engine or photos of a train journey you may have taken, or you could also create a wonderful cover for a handmadeTravel Journal as a gift for someone going overseas or on a holiday. The possibilities are numerous!

Page Maps 2 - Happy Girl

Holly gave me Becky Fleck's - Page Maps 2 book for Christmas and this is the first LO I have created using one of her sketches. I like the simplicity of it. Lately my LOs have had large clusters of embellishments and it was nice to do something a little different this time. It was a lot quicker too - which I liked!

A Little Card Challange

Meet Milton the bear! I have just completed this card set for the Colour Me Christmas challenge at the Little Scrapbook Shop. I had a lot of fun glimmermisting the doilies to match the cards!

Here are the challenge details:
"For this challenge we'd like you to use stamps and colour them in with at least 2 colours. It can be Copic markers, coloured pencils, chalks, textas/tombow dye markers, anything you can colour with. BUT no paint as in tubes or tubs of paint. (Yes, you can use Twinkling H2O's though). It can be any theme you like, as long as there are 3 cards and at least 2 colours used on them to colour in."
Thanks for looking!

More 'My Fair Lady' and 'Lemon Sorbet' from Tattered Inspirations!

My Fair Lady - Journal 2011

Lemon Sorbet - Maypole LO

Those of you who know my scrapping style know that when I have a kit to play with I love to use as much of it up as possible. If you scroll down my blog you will already see what I have created with the 'My Fair Lady' monthly kit and French Inspired 'Lemon Sorbet' mini kit from 'Tattered Inspirations', but because these kits offer such great value for money you can always manage two or three projects from each kit.
I have also used some of the new 'Vintage Seam Binding' on the journal cover to create a handmade flower and have featured some of Carol's beautiful 'cabachons' and 'Monet inspired flowers' on the layout.
If you haven't purchased a kit from Tattered Inspirations then it's time to take a look right here! You won't be disappointed. Please share your creations with us by leaving a comment with a link.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and thank you for supporting my blog and my design creations for both Design Teams!

My Princess My Dog

I had to take a 'time-out brain-break' from report writing on Saturday night, so what better way to do that than scrap a LO. I decided to use the Sketch challenge from ScrapBoutique's Cybercrop this weekend to scrap this photo I have had sitting on my desk with these BG Pyrus PPs for weeks. I'm so glad I did because I love the end result! Then again I'd love anything that wasn't a report!!!

Looking for an inexpensive, pretty gift idea? Then look no further!! Scrapbooking embellishments are not just for layouts. For a few dollars I purchased this glass candle holder and I have used some Monet inspired blooms, a floral cabachon and a vintage doily from Tattered Inspirations, along with some chippie embellishments from Scrapmatts, an old ticket, paper and ribbon to create this decorated candle holder.
Head on over to the shop to purchase some of these delectable flowers and cabachons ...... here!!!

Thank you for this wonderful and exciting new opportunity Carol. I am very much looking forward to working with you to showcase and promote your beautiful creations.
