Scraplift Saturday

Hi all,

I should be busy writing reports at the moment, however, I'm finding it hard to get going! So instead I'm updating my blog. On Saturday I uploaded my latest video for The Crafty Maven Getaway channel, it was a scrap lift layout. I saw a layout by Mari Clarke and it made me think of a photo of me taken in Scotland so I decided to scrap lift it. Here is my layout:

This is Mari's layout:

and here is my video:

As you can see I've used some die cuts that I cut with my Silhouette machine and then coloured up with some sprays, lots of fun.

Well that's it for now,
take care and happy crafting,

Craft Catch Up

Hi all,

How is everyone? Life is getting very hectic at the moment as it is coming into school report writing time (well actually I should have really started by now!). I went away on school camp and then came home and had to make 3 videos in as many days. These are the layouts and cards that I made and recorded.

First, was my card and video for Mix It Up Monday. I had a lot of fun using up my stash making this card.

I also made a Halloween inspired layout for my YouTube hop with my "Challenge Your Stash" girls. I used up some old Carta Bella papers and some photos from 2013.


My third project was for Free Flow Wednesday on The Crafty Maven Getaway channel, where I took a bit of a detour on the development of my layout.

Well that's it for now. I'll be back in a couple of weeks - after I've finished writing reports!

Take care and happy crafting,
Helen xx

Sketch It Out Thursday

Hi all,

It's been a busy start to Term 4 but I managed to do some scrapping! I created this layout for Sketch It Out Thursday.

I found this layout on Pinterest and then drew a sketch from it to use for this layout.

Here is the video:

Well that's it for today, happy crafting!
Take care,

Art Party Friday

Hi all,

I'm back with a quick post as I was up on The Crafty Maven Getaway channel yesterday for Art Party Friday.  When I sat down to scrap I looked to my right and found all my leftover supplies from Monday's lesson and because I had so much fun making that one I decided to do another similar style of layout. It's even purple again too!

Here is the accompanying video:

Well that's it for today, until next time . . .
Have fun and happy crafting,

School Holiday Scrapping

Hi all,

I just love school holidays, I can stay up late, scrapbook whenever I feel like it, watch t.v. oh and do those jobs on the holiday job list! I have sorted my wardrobe plus done some much needed gardening and also completed three layouts and three videos in the last week.

For Stash It Monday on The Crafty Maven Getaway channel I dove deep into my stash and created this purple layout. I used colouring mediums that haven't been used in quite some time too.

Here is the video:

Also for The Crafty Maven Getaway channel I created this layout for Free Flow Wednesday. I used mainly the Lovely Day collection by Dear Lizzy plus I added some wooden embellishments and coloured in the cars with Prismacolor pencils.

Here is the video for this layout.

The last layout for the week is one for the Challenge Your Stash YouTube hop group I belong to. The theme this month was Fall but as I am an Aussie and we are having Spring at the moment I looked through my photos and found this old one of me and although the photo was taken during springtime in Holland I could use fall colours with it, so I did!

And here's the video for this one!

That's it for me, although I am heading to the craft room this afternoon so more will follow soon.
Take care and happy crafting,

Scrapbooking Update

Hi all,

Oopsy! I haven't updated my blog for over a month, however, I have made a layout or two and recorded a couple of videos.

My latest layout/video went live today and it was a Sketch It Thursday layout. I used the 15th September sketch from Stuck Sketches and created a layout (and video) about my pet frogs' visit to school. Here it is:

Also this month I created a scrap lift layout using the summer collection from Felicity Jane. I scrap lifted a layout by Jessica Fabiano from the Hip Kit Design Team.

Finally, I also a layout for Free Flow Wednesday, albeit it was a bit layout being uploaded as I was sick and had to have quite a few days off work just love the winter lurgies. It is a layout about when I went to watch some boys from my class play football one Saturday morning.

Well that's it for my update.

Take care and happy crafting,
Helen xx

Seems like there are 3 posts this weekend, however, one was in my drafts and I forgot to post it but it's done now . . oops!
