This month the Memory Keeping with Project Life SU design team have a theme which is “A Day in the Life!”

I’ve been itching to use my new kit All Year Long, particularly because we have just finished our busiest time of year on farm (calving time).

The days sure go pretty quick! My sanity saver is having 15 mins to craft on those busy days and sometimes a nap is more important but its like my little treat!

The housework can wait!

Here are my pages. Very unflattering photos but hey ..waking up at 4.30am is not the time to take a selfie!

Thank goodness for my slow cooker..its my one kitchen appliance I rely on all year round but especially in Winter and Spring.

Gearing up for the Festive Markets!

I have a fortnightly market I do which keeps me busy!

Ive really just started doing some more festive items to add to my table and found some adorable Popcorn Frankenstein boxes courtesy of Teri French and decided to CASE them.

Here are my versions of Mr and Mrs Frankenstein!

Fun or what?

While I was on a CASE melarky..I also found some Telephone Boxes, dog houses and windmills to try using the Home Suite Home Thinlits. Clever ladies coming up with these ideas!

I’ve also done some fridge magnet post it note holders for the Christmas rush, some notebooks and lots of novelty items. Hope they go down a treat!

MKxPLSU September Blog Share

12654617_1217563871607105_1504381475554147677_nHi and welcome to our latest blog share for the Memory Keeping Project Life SU Design team. If you arent already a member of this facebook group, then join our lovely page of Memory Keeping Project Life style.

This month is anything goes …so I pulled out my new favourite..Hello Lovely Kit and had a play..

Now these photos have been sitting around for well over a year …in fact nearly two years. I was intending on making a mini album with them so I had them printed as two ups (ie 2 2×3″ photos on a 4×6″ photo).

So rather than reprinting some as full 4×6″ photos I just used the two ups in the 4×6″ pockets. It makes it a very busy page but is a great way to showcase an event.

I simply had a lot of photos needing to go into this recording of an event so PL came to the rescue!

While this set is designed for Halloween, like my last blog post, I was determined to do more with this set (and there is still more in my head) hehehe

So I have a market this weekend so while I was making these to sell..IMG_6187-002

And using the new Cookie Cutter Halloween set, I wondered about making the vampire into a Dad for Fathers Day! (It’s Fathers Day here today in New Zealand) I combined it with the Jolly Friends stamp set by using the elf and the scarf out of this set. 142255GIMG_6184-002IMG_6189-002IMG_6190-001

The sentiment is from the Annual Catalogue (Thoughtful banners and matching punch) . The techniques used were weathered distress and baby wipe and using From land to sea stamp set.

So off we go to the wonderfully kind soul of Monique Fielder!

New Holiday Catalogue playtime!

Hi there…I’ve been rather busy on farm but ..my pre order for our new Holiday Catalogue (goes live 1st September) arrived ..and yesterday I had some time to play!

This is my first outing of this gorgeous bundle ..The Home Sweet Home bundle which includes a stamp set and matching thinlits.

IMG_6112-002This cute wee box will be perfect for some chocolate or lollies or even stuffed with money!  The tree and fence are part of another die set ..which is actually a Halloween bundle but me being me wanted it for the fence and tree! Hehehe (Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies)

IMG_6111-002IMG_6109-002

The flowers are from the tree builder punch (with the Blooms and Bliss DSP)   and I also used the Brick Wall Embossing folder on the house too. ( I cut four diecuts out and cut and embossed the panels I needed on 2 of them. These then got adhered to the base diecuts.

I cant wait to make more of these little houses ..they might become quite addictive lol

 

 

Floral Boutique Scrapbooking Layouts

Ive recently started up a Te Puke beginner/intermediate scrapbooking class at my home and we had our first class yesterday.

Here are the Layouts I taught.

 

IMG_5441-001

For the Sunshine Layout, I used Pop of Pink Specialty DSP for the flowers and also some sequins.

On both Layouts, I used Floral Boutique DSP, Night of Navy solid bakers twine, Banners Framelits, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Botanical Builders Framelits. Diamantes for some bling!

On the Love Layout, I also used the Bloomin’ heart Thinlit, Thoughtful Banners Stamp set and the stamps from the Hello Lovely Project Life Accessory Pack.

IMG_5436-001

I’m very busy on farm at the moment as it is calving time and we are nearing half way so it was lucky that I could squeeze in some time to teach these Layouts. Now I need some time to make next months ones!

I still have some spaces if you would like to come..just email me!
