Always and Forever

Another gorgeous wedding photo scrapped for the album!!
Frosted Designs has a cool challenge again this week - use rolled paper.
I punched a lace strip with a Martha Stewart lace punch, rolled it around a pencil and then adhered it to the top of sliced background paper before tucking under the scallop border and fussy cut flowers. I rolled (curled) a few paper strips as well!

All of the papers and most of the embellishments are from the new Websters Pages papers that have just arrived at Scottie Crafts. The transparent frame is a Glitz Peek-a-Boo.
The weather is cooling here and this morning I have a bacon hock and vegies simmering away for our first pot of winter soup! The smell of soup cooking and a cosy fire are probably the only things I really love about winter!
Have a good day!
Sue :)


Another layout for some young friends' album.
The background paper is Websters Pages and the rest of the papers are from the Basic Grey, Picadilly range. The butterfly is a Spellbinders die, Wonderful Wings. There are 5 lacy butterfly dies and 5 shadow dies. Very cool set!
I have used the April sketch at Get Creative. Check out their cool challenges here.

Have a great weekend!

Cute little Emilie

I am loving these very cute photos that some young friends have given me to scrap! Emilie is such a cutie!
I am putting this layout into these two challenges:
My Minds Eye - use hexagons
Frosted Designs - use hexagons
It is ANZAC Day in NZ and Australia. We honour those who died in World Wars helping us preserve the wonderful freedom we have in our countries today. "We will remember them".

More Glitz

This layout is based on the April 15th sketch over at Stuck Sketches!

Mostly Glitz Designs papers and embellies here, except for the print paper which is Pink Paisley's London Market. I have coloured the bird on the background paper with my new Pan Pastels. I love how smooth these pastels are! Lots of die-cutting here - Spellbinders leaves, Tim Holtz Rosettes, Swirl and Tiny tag, Martha Stewart border punches and Cricut cut frame!
Check out the Stuck sketch blog for this cool sketch!

Prima Prima!

I have so much Prima in my stash! Its time to stop oogling it and start using it! So here is a layout using the

The papers are from the Fairy Belle collection. Perfect papers for more wedding photos! I have put a little irridescent medium over the flowers to soften them and inked parts of the background paper to highlight those colours. The lacy cut has been done using the Paper Lace cricut cartridge.

This second layout I did a few weeks ago but didnt get around to putting it on my blog. This one is using the Nature Garden Collection. I am loving the Prima Vintage charms and their very cute stamps! The little bird stamps are so useful, especially as the set has one facing each direction!
The cricut cut lacy frame is from the Damask Decor cartridge and some of Martha Stewarts gorgeous punches will pretty up any page!

All these papers and Cricut cartridges are available from Scottie Crafts.

A wonderful day!

Just before Christmas, when Mike was in the States, he met a young lady who told him that she and her fiance and two friends were coming to New Zealand in March and that they wanted to get married here. Mike kindly volunteered my services to help them plan their wedding!!
After numerous emails, we had a wedding planned and had formed a fun friendship.
The day of the wedding was one of our worst of the many wet days we had this summer!!! Well, these great kids did not care! They live in the desert at home and saw this as part of the adventure. We had the service on the deck of my cousins bach, we opened some champagne and they danced in the rain. We all got totally drenched to the skin but it was such a fun, fun day!!!
This layout uses Bo Bunny papers and chipboard from Scottie Crafts in Glenfield on the North Shore.
Frosted Designs Friday Challenge is 'Weather'. I thought these photos were perfect for this topic. You can even see the fuzziness in the main photo from rain on the lens!
I am also putting this layout in Bird is the Word challenge to use the word 'Future'.
Aren't we all loving this beautiful autumn after our near non-existent summer!!

Home from AE

Such an awesome time at Autumn Escape! Thanks to room and table buddies, Jane, Annelie, Bev and Emma!
Bev was hiding elsewhere when the lovely Piradee Talvanna took this photo! Piradee, we loved your classes!!
Besides classes, I even managed to get some of my own layouts done.
This layout is using the new Pink Paisley, London Market range, from Scottie Crafts. I love htis range of papers and accessories!
I have used the sketch #203 at Creative Scrappers for the layout. I reversed the sketch and my banner is the butterflies using the Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

My gorgeous little model, Emilie, is the daughter of some young friends who had some gorgeous photos taken by Photographique. I hope they like this layout! Eventually I will give them the album of  'Emilie' layouts.
Back soon! I have so many un-blogged layouts!!
Sue :)

Canvas fun

After doing a class at Prima with Donna Downey, I have been inspired to have a play around with art on canvas. But, being a scrapbooker at heart I do find it hard not to include a photo somewhere! The photo is of my grandmother.

Challenge Me Happy have an 'Anything Goes' challenge this fortnight, so here it is! My first play!
