Another May BOY Kit Page

Told you all I would be back, this time with a LO that is a little more Girly from the gorgeous Kit.

My Lovely nieces.

Created my own stencil from left overs and gessoed the butterflies.

I tried to keep it simple, something I rarely do,
I never know when to stop until it is too late!
I had so much fun with this kit and I still have stuff leftover for cards. 
Now for the June Kit......
Thanks for joining me

May BOY Kit

Back again this time with the LO I created using the awesome May BOY kit, instructions for this LO will be up in the group shortly!

The papers in this Kit I totally loved! I also have another Lo almost ready to go that is a little more Girly (well for me it is anyway) I will post that one very soon.
The only thing I used that is not included in the kit was the buttons I used from my stash!
 I hope I have inspired and I have you all rushing to get your hands on one of these kits!!


What's Hot for Chilly June

Hi all,
hope everyone is keeping warm and creating up a "storm" in these icy months of Winter! So, what is "hot" for June... well I know I have talked about tape before, but the trend is still very "Now"! I can't get enough of this versatile stuff, they just keep coming up with more fun and funky designs to keep me happy!
So I thought I would show you something different to do with it and, I kid you not, so incredibly easy to do...... I am going over to the USA to visit my little brother who has 3 girls very soon so I thought I could whip up a little gift for my nieces.
These are what I came up with.... notebooks to go with their Caramellos and Tim Tams!

So so easy you will have these done in a Jiffy! I bought the notebooks from Officeworks, they were just plain white covers then I just piled on the tape. You could use the same technique for cards and gift tags.
If you are not a hoarder like me with tape of every colour known to man, you could incorporate strips of scrap paper with some tape for the same affect!
I hope I have given some inspiration, stay warm and scrap happy!

BOS - May sneak

Hello Everyone!!  Just wanted to share the first layout that can be created from the May Boxx of Scraps!  This kit is jammed packed with plenty of Crate Paper goodness and then some. 

Not only do I love the way the kit stickers can be so versatile but, I also love how the Crafters Template ledger gives just a hint of texture beneath the cluster of elements.

Full instructions can be found in the Boxx of Scraps kit group.  Thanks for visiting..x

May Uplift

Hi Girls,

It was my turn to do an uplift for May and I apologise sincerely for not posting until......June :0
I have had this project on the back burner for a while but unfortunately my life tends to get in the way of my scrapping.

I picked a layout in the gallery a while back and I can't think of anyone better to uplift than the wonderfully talented Leeann Pearce  - I am a big fan of her style and also of her Etsy shop The Chip Chop Shop. If you haven't checked out her blog or her shop I highly recommend that you head over for a sneek peek.

This is the layout I created with her inspiration - 

And this is her wonderful layout - 

How gorgeous is that...........

I used some of the wonderful BO Bunny "Ambrosia" range of pattern paper and embellishments that can be purchased at the BOXX Shop.


Hope you have all had a scrappy weekend
Till next time

June Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another month and another sketch Challenge.

This month I decided to introduce a little twist and create a card sketch instead.  I don't make cards any where near enough, but every time I do, I vow to do them more often.  Anyone else in the same boat?

So here she is...

and the card:

You have until midnight on Saturday 30th June to get your entries into the sketch thread in the Boxx forum, so have fun!!
