Behind the scenes…

Posted by swewi on July 31, 2012

…there’s something fun going on. And yes, this is a tease where I don’t really tell you anything about it. But I’m bursting to DO so, so that’s why I have to say SOMETHING!

🙂

So I’m just gonna share my latest LO’s with you instead. Here’s my last LO for 2Crafty Chipboard. It’s been a great company to work for, their product is simply amazing!

And with products from Mollys Scrapbooking, for Challenge Me Happy’s word challenge:

 

And that’s it. For now.

 

New challenge coming up over at Challenge Me Happy tomorrow, and something else exciting too. Be sure to check it out!!!

Lost mojo

Posted by swewi on July 14, 2012

I have had this before. The “no mojo” period, that seems to last forever. At the same time I have deadlines, and a Project Life album that needs to be updated.

I scrap way less than usually do, because of the lack of mojo, but also because I am so tired at night. I also have a sore shoulder/arm that stops me from doing lots. I guess all of this goes hand in hand really…

I know this shall pass, it’s just so frustrating!!

So, in the meantime – here’s an update on what I’ve been up to lately!

My first ever project for Kite Tails Designs:

 

 

For 2Crafty Chipboard:

 

 

For Scrappin’ Patch:

 

And I think that’s all I can share right now… There will be more to share as the 15th rolls on! 🙂

If you’re here for my Challenge Me Happy Hoopla challenge – please go here.

So. Life have been crazy busy. I’m sure it has for you too. There has not been a lot of time for blogging. Well, I’m sure there has actually, I’ve just done something else instead. Like procrastinating. Or working. Or creating something new. Or watched TV. Or done house work. Or been too sick to care. Same as you I’m sure.

I have so much to share though, so it was time for an update – someone told me. 🙂

So here goes. Not a lot of words needed, here’s the update on my latest creativity:

 

For 2Crafty Chipboard:

 

 

 

 

 

 

For D-Lish Scraps:

 

 

For Scrappin’ Patch:

And that’s it! For now. See you later – with more creativity!

My latest giveaway is now CLOSED! I had 23 people interested – thank you ladies! The result of my draw will be at the end of this post, because I want you all to see my creativity first! Ha!

 

I’ve done quite a lot lately. Especially considering the fact that crafting actually makes me really sore, and I should probably not do much… But it’s MY way of relaxing, and I know I’m preaching to the choir here…

 

So, I did some creating for the National Scrapbooking Day crop over at the Nook. 11 creations in total, but I won’t show them all at once. 🙂 Here’s the one I was most happy with,  using Echo Park papers & a whole lot of random embellies, including a jean pocket:

 

 

Another one for the crop, also using Echo Park:

 

 

This one is mostly stamping & misting, but the re’s also some lovely washi tape from D-Lish scraps on there!

 

 

Then, a LO using Pink Paislee Prairie Hill, for Scrappin’ Patch:

 

 

And Pink Paislee for Scrappin’ Patch again, this time Indigo Bleu:

 

 

For Mollys Scrapbooking, using the April kit:

 

 

 

My LO for the Challenge Me Happy sketch that went live today:

Giveaway!

Posted by swewi on May 5, 2012

Hi everyone!!

 

Hope you are doing well, wherever you are in the world. I am still struggling with shoulder pain, but have met a specialist that seem to be committed to helping me!

In other news, I have been selected to be on the FIRST EVER DT for a NEW company; Kite Tails Designs! I am so honoured and EXCITED about this, and can’t WAIT for the first box of goodies to turn up!

Bad news – my camera seem to be broken. My beautiful CANON is not doing what it supposed to do, and I will have to send it away next week. I feel slightly nauseaus and panicky about this, but hope they can fix the problem – QUICK!

 

RIGHT – I have loads to share – both in creativity, and in STUFF!!

 

First off, I have drawn the winner of my RAK from the last post:

Congrats GYSPYLCM – that’s you! Email me at annelie.maddock[at]gmail. com with your details and I will send something out to you!!!

 

I have more STUFF to give away – and will tell you all about it at the end of this post!

First, I’d like to share some creativity…

Using 2Crafty Chipboard, D-Lish goodies & MME papers & embellies:

 

 

Using 2Crafty & D-Lish goodies again, and gorgeous Echo Park papers:

 

 

For the latest Challenge Me Happy COLOUR challenge, using Echo Park paper, a cool map stamp, and some D-Lish goodies:

OK, I think that is all I can show today. Some more to come as soon as they have gone live in other places… 😉

 

So – my giveaway. Well. I have a lot of STUFF. I go through phases of things that I like, and sometimes that phase finishes – without me using all the product. So. I have been trying to tidy up my scrapping studio – with emphasis on the word TRYING. It’s not going well.  I have to get rid of some STUFF. So here’s what I thought I’d do… I will have a few categories, and if you are interested to be in the draw to win them – tell me in a comment. Tell me if you are interested in one or two or all etc… I also want you to share on your on blog, or on Facebook, because I want to get rid of all the stuff I am not using anymore. Make sense?

 

So – in your comment, tell me what you would like to win, and let me know where you have shared the info about the giveaway. OK? Let’s go!

 

1. A box of PRIMA flowers, and maybe some other embellies too

2. PRIMA papers. Not the latest collections, a mix of older ones.

3. Websters Pages paper. Not the latest collections, a mix of older ones, and maybe some embellies too

4. Mix of patterend papers. Not sure how many, but we are talking 50+

5. Alphas – complete sets, maybe 10 or so

6. Alphas – uncomplete sets – LOTS!

7. Chipboard – leftover from previous DT assignments

8. Misc embellies – different manufacturers, different styles – LOTS!

9. Stamps; a combination of used and unused

 

Please help me clean out! Thank you!!!

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!!

How is it possible…

Posted by swewi on March 11, 2012

…that it’s 2 weeks since my last blog post? Time is TICKING away too fast for me at the moment!

 

So, while the girls are watching some bed-time TV, here’s a quick update from me.

 

For 2Crafty, I have done two LO’s that I REALLY love. Using gorgeous My Little Shoebox papers on this first LO, and my fav range from Crate Paper (Random) on the second one. On the second one I have also used washi tape from D-Lish Scraps!

 

 

 

For Scrappin’ Patch using Echo Park “Yours truly” collection:

 

 

For a photoswap over at the Nook, using a winter collection from Echo Park:

 

 

For D-lish Scraps, and also for the photo swap:

 

And last for today, a LO for the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge – masking.

 

 

Yep. I’m still doing banners. Still doing mist splatter. Still loving it. Hope you do too! See ya!

Busy bee

Posted by swewi on February 3, 2012

Oh my goodness I have been busy lately. Both privately & scrap wise. Work is nuts, and sleep hasn’t really happened lately.

BUT – I have been creative. My oh my, have I ever. Some of it I can share, some of it will have to wait. So – without further ado – sharing it is!! But I’m warning you – I am sort of scraplifting myself at the moment. I have found a concept I love, and I’m following it every time I start creating something new. Is that bad??

First – my take on the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge – a recipe this time!

 

My first LO for my new term with Scrappin’ Patch, using Echo Park “Yours Truly” range. For more details, check out the blog here.

 

 

Then my first 2Crafty LO, and I have also used some cute resin flowers from D-Lish scraps. For more details, check out the 2Crafty blog here.

 

 

Another really exciting thing for me, is that I am the featured card designer on the Nook blog. Seeing as I have just recently started making cards, this is a huge BUZZ!

One of the cards featured is this one that I made for a colleagues birthday recently. Did you know I love twine?

 

 

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by!!
