Hello hello

Posted by swewi on August 28, 2012

Oooooh it’s almost time to reveal my first kit wih Crazy Monday Kits. I’m very excited!!!

In between looking for cool products for the October kit, and packing the September kit, and deciding on new challenges for Challenge Me Happy (and working and hanging out with the family) I have scrapped! Yes! A little bit anyway! 🙂

Adrienne from Scrappin’ Patch send me a box full of gorgeous Fancy Pants papers & embellies, and she’s now selling the same sort of box in the shop so that you can replicate my LO’s if you want to. This is what I did, and I LOOOOVE the coulours in this collection!










I’m sure I have more to show, but doing a sneaky post from work, so this will have to do now. Adios!

The cat is out of the bag & the voucher winner!

Posted by swewi on August 17, 2012

Well, if you follow me on Facebook, you now know my scrappy secret – I have started a kit club!

I am BEYOND excited! Please check it out here if you haven’t already http://crazymondaykits.wordpress.com/ or find it on Facebook here www.facebook.com/CrazyMondayScrapbookingKits.

A big shout out to Adrienne from Scrappin’ Patch who has helped me a lot behind the scenes, and also to Lilo from Mollys & Marie from Little Yellow House kits who has given me a lot of pointers in my process of this.

Starting this company with some help from people in the same boat as me has taught me that the scrapbooking world is not all about competition and money. Friendship and other people’s success is worth a WHOLE lot!

So as you can imagine, a lot of my time has revolved around this adventure. Haven’t scrapped as much as I would have liked, but Mr Mojo being holiday has also played a big part in that!

I have however done some stuff, and I’d like to share those!


First up a LO for Mollys using a cool Dylusion’s mask & Studio Calico “Heyday” collection:


For the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge – BOM – using Echo Park papers & stickers, sponsored by Scrappin’ Patch:

I’ve also had a couple of cards up on the Kite Tails blog, and today you can read my persentation on the blog as well!

For more inspiration from me, be sure to stop by the Scrappin’ Patch blog tomorrow, I’ve got some fun LO’s to share!!

OK – voucher winner! There were 13 comments on the blog, and one on FB who get’s no 14, and the winner issssssssssssssss:

Congrats topkatnz/Heidi! Email me to get the deets on the voucher, and happy scrapping!

Thanks to everyone who comes back to visit, and comment. I really, REALLY appreciate it. Hope you will come and visit me on my new site as well! Happy weekend!

Let’s celebrate!

Posted by swewi on August 8, 2012

So I still can’t tell you about my newest scrappy secret. Sorry. Soooon. Promise!

In the meantime I’d like to celebrate the fact that I have had over 40,000 visitors on this blog since I started it. (This is my second scrappy blog since 2006). I am VERY excited about that number, and VERY grateful for all of you that takes time to stop by and say hello!!!

And if you know me, you know that I like to give things AWAY. So that’s what I’m doing!!!!

You all know I am on the DT for the amazing shop Scrappin’ Patch. Well – what I want you to do is go to the online shop here: http://scrappinpatch.co.nz and have a look at the newest items. Leave a comment here, telling me which products you LOVE at the moment, and you can win a voucher worth $30 from the shop to BUY just that!!! (Just to be clear – the shop is NOT sponsoring me to do this, I just want to give someone who reads my blog something cool, and I want the winner to be able to pick out something they LOVE!)

Come on – what are you waiting for???
