So it’s getting close to the end of the year. That’s a scary thought… It’s almost summer and it’s my birthday month – just in case you wanted to know. Don’t mind that though :) I just fear that I will have less creative time the closer we get to Christmas, but I will try and MAKE time to be creative. I crave it. I am sure most of you know exactly what I mean!
Tomorrow I plan to start the “This is our week” project, using the kit with the same name from Crazy Monday Kits, some other CMK products, and most likely some PL cards from my “small” Becky Higgins collection…
Here’s a little sneak of the first page that I started last night:
I’ve also cut out all the exclusive cut files from The Cut Shoppe. I need to fix my printer before I get my exclusive printables, and then I need to REMEMBER to take a LOT of photos.
That all sounds easy doesn’t it…
Have you done a project like this? This year, or earlier? Please share if you have!
Next, I’d like to share my LO for the new sketch over at Creative Scrappers. LOVE LOVE LOVE this sketch:
And here is my LO, using mainly the Crazy Monday October kit:

It’s not often I get time to just “scrap for me”, with no assignment in mind. But today I took an hour away from housework and other “must do’s” and just scrapped a LO for fun. I just used whatever was on my desk, and I am really happy with the result! What do you think?
Lots of new yummy things on there :) And I also played with my gelatos and some water :)
While I’m blogging, I’d like to share my latest LO for Creative Scrappers. I’ve used the Crazy Monday Kits October kit, full of Crate Paper & Fancy Pants yumminess! This is the sketch – you still have time to play along!
Thanks for stopping by today, please let me know you were here!!

Today I’ve shared my last “official” LO over at The Cut Shoppe. Such an amazing store to be part of, with an incredibly talented team. I’ve had a BALL that’s for sure! The LO I’m sharing today is featuring me and my BFF – hence the title. You might recognise her? I’ve used both printables (“The Love Notes“) & cut files (the alpha “All Tied Up“) on this LO!!
I’ve used Crazy Monday July kit for this page (don’t have much left of this kit now!).
The next LO is for the BRAND NEW “Creating With Sketches 3″ by Kristine Davidson. That’s one talented lady right there! You can buy this ebook too, at creativescrappers.bigcartel.com. Use coupon code V3Annelie to get 10% off anything from the shop – including the NEW book! So cool!
I can’t show you the sketch I got to play with, but here is the LO. The gorgeous little girl in the LO is a daughter of friends of mine. She is the happiest baby/girl I’ve ever met, and I love these photos of her that I snapped on my phone one day!
Most of the products on this LO are from Crazy Monday Kits!

Hi everyone! Busy busy times for me, how about you? Don’t have as much time for creating as I’d like, but trying to sneak in as much as I can!
Here’s my latest projects for The Cut Shoppe:
First a LO with my darling man, using the “A Walk in the Clouds” file & my title is from the “So in Love” cut file. The papers are Amy Tan “Plus One”!
On this next LO I have used the Crazy Monday September kit, love the colours in this kit! On this page I used “The Optical Illusion” as a mask. I also used the “Game On” cut file, and the “go” circle comes from the “Driver’s Ed” file.
This next LO went through a few different stages :) The cut files used are from “Happy Hashtag” & the cut file “Hip2BSquare” is what I used for my background.
And my latest LO for Creative Scrappers, for sketch #279.
Let’s be honest – this is not my kind of sketch, it messes with my white space addiction. So, this is my THIRD LO for this sketch, but I got there in the end!
I have used the Crazy Monday May kit for this LO – nice to have different kits to choose from!
THANK YOU if you made it all the way here! I appreciate your visit! Let me know you were here!!

The Scrappy Blog Tour has landed here on my blog today! The very talented Allie Stewart invited me, so here we go!
1. What am I working on right now?
The Cut Shoppe is teaming up with Clique Kits this month, and in a couple of days there will be a blog hop. So I’ve been creating with their gorgeous September kit lately!
2. How long does it take me to create a project?
Nowadays it varies a lot. I used to have more time to create, and then it took between 30-90 minutes to finish a LO. Now I can start a project when I have a minute or so to sit down, add a little every day and then finish it off a week or so later. When I DO have time to sit down I try and speed scrap to get more done!!
3. What are my favourite things to create with at the moment?
I am totally LOVING my Silhouette Cameo, and try and use cut files on all my LO’s. If not as decorations, as a mask with modelling paste. I also add mist to almost every project I do. Paperclips, frames & enamel dots and words also frequents on my projects. I’m also loving to create with the Crazy Monday Kits - of course!
4. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
Tough question. Mr Mojo tends to come and go at my house. My most frequent place to visit when he is away is the Studio Calico gallery. From there I build up new inspiration and ideas.
5. What is my signature style?
White space, masking and misting, layers and lots of bits & pieces pretty much sums me up I think! Or what do YOU think?
There you go – thanks Allie for tagging me! I’d like to challenge two of my fav scrappers to do this too, Michelle Whorwood & Piradee Talvanna!
