Post 299

Posted by swewi on April 19, 2013

I promised you another post, so here it is. Post 299 in the history of this blog. Must do a giveaway in post 300. Don’t you agree?

Anyway. You might have seen this LO either on the Challenge Me Happy blog or the Crazy Monday Kits blog. It’s for the current sketch challenge over at Challenge Me Happy, and I’ve used the Crazy Monday April kit to create the LO. And my silhouette cameo. I loooove my silhouette. But you already knew that 🙂



For details go to the Crazy Monday Kits blog!

Also, here’s another LO with the Maggie Holmes line from Crate Paper that I did at the SP retreat. Adore the colour combinations, adore!








OK, so next time there will be a giveaway. Deal?

More retreat shares

Posted by swewi on April 13, 2013

So I’ve got another couple of LO’s to share that I cooked last weekend. 🙂 First another LO with the Crate Paper DYI line. I really love that line! A photo of me and Michelle from maybe 18 months ago? Michelle has grown to be a very close friend since 2-3 years back, and there are n0t many aspects of our lives that we don’t ‘share with each other. We jokingly say we talk to each other more that we talk to our husbands… and to be honest it’s probably true! So here’s a LO to celebrate our friendship and the fact that we are “like peas and carrots”.


And close ups:



Then a LO of my friends little boy who has a special place in my heart. I’ve gone back to the Crazy Monday January 2013 kit on this one, great for boy LO’s I think!

I’ve added some masking, Glitz Design washi tape & bling, some MME enamel dots (looooove) & buttons, AC thickers, misc tags & a Maggie Holmes peg. Mini alphas & the word “awesome” is from the Fancy Pants sticker sheet in the Crazy Monday October 2012 kit!

That’s it for today. I’ll have more next week, as I have a LO for the next Challenge Me Happy challenge, going up on Monday!

Hello there!

Posted by swewi on April 10, 2013

After having a drought in scrapping, I had three days of creating in Christchurch in the weekend! It was AMAZING in so many ways… Hanging out with friends close to my heart, and meeting new friends. Getting food cooked and cleaned away, and not having to deal with tantrums every 10 minutes. Well. Not from my children anyway 😛

Jokes aside, it was a wonderful retreat arranged by Adrienne from Scrappin’ Patch, and I have to say the chances of me going back for the next one in September are very high!

I got a whole lot of LO’s done, and considering I thought I’d get 2-3 LO’s done I am stoked. Some of them are for upcoming Challenge Me Happy challenges, or for Crazy Monday Kits so I can’t show them, but some was JUST BECAUSE so I can share!!

I have always been a huge Crate Paper fan, and their latest lines has not disappointed me. So. This LO is with the very cool DIY line. I am embarassingly proud of myself for the photo in this LO, snapped as Tova looks up to me after getting an award at the end of term assembly last year. And I think the DIY line works perfectly with the photo. So I’m happy! Some sewing, a few veneers and even washi tape (I normally just buy them and never really use them) – LO done.





I’d also like to share a LO for Crazy Monday Kits that went up on the blog today. Everything on the LO is from the kit, apart from the gold mist I have sprayed the 2Crafty chipboard filmstrips with. 🙂


Check the Crazy Monday blog for detail shots!

I have MORE to show, so I will be back soon!!! Thanks for stopping by today!
