Hi readers

I will reward you instead! Come back and comment on this post – telling me which of our projects you enjoyed most during your journey (doesn’t have to be mine!!!) and I will draw a RAK from the comments – to be sent worldwide!!

Mini album

Posted by swewi on April 24, 2012

I just realised I haven’t shown you this little minialbum I did, with LYB papers & embellies. It is VERY rarely I do albums. This particular album was made from a single piece of 12×12 paper, I followed a tutorial from the brilliant Lowri McNabb here. I then just added my instax photos, some embellies, & alpha stamps galore. Fun, fun, fun! What do you think??

Oh – and stay tuned. As soon as the wave of pain I am in right now has disappeared there will be a MASSIVE RAK happening right here. On this blog. Ciao!

Creativity

Posted by swewi on April 19, 2012

It’s a funny thing. Creativity. It doesn’t necessarily come in to place when you want it to. When you are have planned to BE creative, when you are child free, or even when you have a WHOLE WEEKEND set aside for it.

I spent last weekend in scrappy heaven, with 144 other scrap crazy ladies, at the Autumn Escape. I was all geared up and ready to do some SERIOUS scrapping, but no. I didn’t “feel” it. I had a WONDERFUL time with my friends, and I had three AWESOME classes; two with Piradee & one with Rachel Tucker. I had loads of new product with me that I was looking forward to using, but no. It didn’t really happen.

I don’t dislike any of the LO’s I finished, but you know the feeling – you feel average. Nothing mindblowing in my bag going home. Such a shame. But that’s life.

Some of what I did is still under wraps, but here are a couple that I CAN share. 🙂

1st up – a LO for the latest MME challenge, using hexagons:

Then a LO that is NOT this scewered IRL, for the Fancy Pants challenge going on at TwoPeas right now:

I did a whole lotta creating for Molly’s at the retreat, and as soon as it’s been up on the blog – I will share!

This is a card I made for 2Crafty before I went to AE, it was used as a thank you card for one of the sponsors for the weekend; Lily Bee:

Now I have to find some time & MOJO to finish off a few projects, and to make a card for a very SPECIAL little newborn!

Third time lucky?

Posted by swewi on April 7, 2012

This is the third time I’m writing this post. It’s gonna be significally shorter than my first draft, because I just want it posted! Nor sure what wordpress is up to, but it’s frustrating me! 🙂

I’m sorry for the lack of posting by the way. Family & work takes a lot of time as you all know, and my blogging is falling behind. Hoping it will be better soon.

Here is what I have created since my last post.

For ME, using Little Yellow Bicycle papers, both new and old collections:

Used some D-lish Scraps bling on this LO about my man as well. 🙂

Borrowed a hexagon die for this LO. Love it. Need my own now!!!

For D-lish Scraps, using washi tape, heart pins and the gorgeous heart cabachons. I also put it into Echo Parks “dots & stripes” comp, and came out as one of the winners. Very exciting!!

For Challenge Me Happy #20 – anything goes, using sponsored products from Scrappin’ Patch;

You’ve still got a week to get your creations in for that challenge, and it can’t get any easier than “Anything Goes”!!

For miss 3’s pre-school teachers, using D-lish scraps flowers, sprays, rose ribbon and bling, & 2Crafty “easter word” & “twiggy branch” chipboard.

Needed to do one for miss 5’s teacher as well of course, and that one looked like this:

Hope you are all haveing a fabulous Easter. I’m having a few days off with my girls, and so far we’ve had a wonderful time! Next week I am off to Autumn Escape in Taupo for an indulgence in friendship, spa treatements and SCRAPPING. See you soon!!
