A Scrapbooking Swewi

This is the place where I share my creations!


Posted by swewi on May 2, 2014

So this is new – blogging at the BEGINNING of the month! Shock horror! Maybe I will even fit in TWO posts this month??? Best not to promise anything though 🙂


You might know that I spent last weekend at the Autumn Escape down in Taupo. Always a fabulous event. This time around I didn’t do any classes, which meant I had a lot of time to scrap, chat, go for spa’s, and just generally chillax. Awesomesauce I tell ya! I got 12 LO’s done in total, which I’m wrapped about.

Can’t show all of them here today, but I can share a few. Which is exciting!!


First though, my LAST LO for Sketchabilities. It’s been a great DT to be on, Karan’s sketches are soooo inspiring and they have pushed me in all sorts of directions. Which is fab.



I have used the Crazy Monday March kit for this LO!

I created a sketch for the AE retreat attendees, the top three won prizes from Crazy Monday Kits. This is my example LO where I have used mainly the April kit from Crazy Monday:

My next LO is from a sketch over at Creative Scrappers. They have a Birthday Bash happening over there, and there are 12 lovely sketches to play with! Again, I’ve used the Crazy Monday March kit, plus a few things from my stash!

The next LO was made after a Studio Calico Sketch, and again I have mostly used Crazy Monday April kit – both the scrapbook & the PL kit:

    fabulous, especially loving the white backgrounds, I often think white is too stark, but you have shown me that it can be very effective. great work 🙂
