Happy Scrappy News!

Posted by swewi on January 30, 2015

I’ve got happy news to share today! I have been asked to join the inaugural Design Team for the Australian Manufacturer Cocoa Vanilla Studio! So exciting!

Here is the 2015 DT, some amazing talent on there I tell you. I am of course THRILLED to share this experience with my BFF Michelle 🙂


At the moment, there are two fabulous collections out, check them out:

I just can’t wait to get my hands on these collections! If you like what you see, make sure you tell your local scrapbook store to get them in!

Cyber crop fun

Posted by swewi on January 22, 2015

Hi! I’ve been participating in a cyber crop with D-Lish scraps, all through FB. Well, participating might be a lie – I did LO’s for two challenges. 🙂


Just wanted to share these LO’s today. I still don’t have my mojo fully back, but am pretty happy with these LO’s!

Saying farewell to an old friend

Posted by swewi on January 20, 2015

I have been involved with Creative Scrappers on several levels the last few years. I’ve had 3-4 stints on the DT, and I’ve been lucky enough to be part of Kristine’s e-books as well. Crazy Monday has also sponsored a challenge or two. Kristine is an amazing lady who has shaped the challenge world with great sketches for years! She is now moving on to other things, and yesterday the last sketch ever was revealed on the blog. I feel honoured to have been part of her journey – thank you!


Here is the sketch, and my take on it – using mostly Amy Tan goodies:

Hello 2015!

Posted by swewi on January 14, 2015

Happy New Year dear readers! It’s two weeks into the new year, and I have finally found some mojo and some time to scrap! What about you?


The LO I’d like to share today is a “just because” LO, a page to get me going again after a wonderful Christmas break with my family. I’ve used a few goodies from the Crazy Monday Kits January embellishment kit, and some new products from Dear Lizzy’s “Serendipity” line. LOVE the colours in this collection!


Here we go, hope you like!!
