Well hello

Posted by swewi on January 26, 2012

Hi blog. Yes I remember you. It’s been too long, I know – but at least I’m here now!


First, I’d lke to share with you my latest DT news – I’ve joined the amazing team over at 2Crafty! They make a fantastic range of chipboard, and the rest of the team is incredibly talanted. My first project will go up on the blog next week, so make sure you make a visit! “Like” them on Facebook too, at the moment they are only a few “likers” away for a giveaway!


On the Challenge Me Happy Facebook page, we are also only a couple of “likers” away from a giveaway. Have you “liked” us yet?


Our last challenge at Challenge Me Happy – you still have a few days to enter – is a word challenge. The word is “NEW”, and here is my take; using Pink Paislee goodies from Scrappin’ Patch!



I’ve also kept up with the New Year’s Crop over at the Nook. Here’s a LO that was for a scraplift – of myself! I lifted my “My Man” LO, and this is what I did:



I also created my FIRST EVER TAG for the crop, and I used a couple of D-Lish resin roses on it. They are delish for sure! My tag was actually featured on the Nook blog, and chosen as the weekly feature on the Nook message board. Who’d have thought?!?!?



OK. I think that’s it. 🙂 I am working on something for EVERY team I am on at the moment (plus some challenges), so should have a few things to show you soon again, That’s if I can remember to blog about it… 🙂


Thanks for visiting!

Like coming home

Posted by swewi on January 11, 2012

Have you heard? I’m back on the Scrappin’ Patch DT! Honestly, it feels like coming home. I think both the Patch and I needed this year away from each other, but it feel just amazing to be back on the team! Check out the blog & see who the other lucky ladies are – Adrienne is still announcing the team, one designer at a time!

So. I have been scrapping. I have done two LO’s for the crop that is happening on the Nook messageboard at the moment. Using Crate Paper and some lovely D-lish goodies, and I’m in heaven. I’m stoked with how these two LO’s came out. What do you think??


Now. I’ve actually got ONE MORE scrappy secret… Stay tuned for that announcement soon!

It’s D-Lish!

Have you seen the new blinkie over there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>?

Yep – I’ve joined the D-Lish Scraps DT! They have SUCH cool stuff, a fantastic team, and I am so happy to be part of it all!

Here is my first LO, using flowers, resin roses & gems from D-Lish Scraps. Papers are from The Scrap Cake.


Love those resin roses!

And then – shock horror – I’ve made a DOUBLE LO! Thanks to the challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch. Can’t even remember the last time I did one! To be honest, it came together fairly quickly, thanks to Echo Park papers & embellies & beautiful photos of my lovely family… 🙂

And left & right sides by themselves:

And some details – ’cause I can!

So – I’ve had a very creative start to the year. What about you??

Hello 2012

Posted by swewi on January 2, 2012

Hope you have all had a great start to the new year! I started the year scrapping with my friends, a wonderful way to start a new year don’t you agree?


I managed to get two LO’s done, in between all the chatting and having lunch. 🙂 I can show you one of them today, a LO for a Studio Calico sketch!



Today, I’d also like to share my LO for the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge, a Trina McClune lift. I was a  bit intimidated by this – but the products that I got from Scrappin’ Patch sure helped me along!


I’ve also got some cards to share, but promised my girls to do some baking – so off to do that now. Thanks for stopping by, hope that you stick around for all of 2012!
