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!!

So it’s getting close to the end of the year. That’s a scary thought… It’s almost summer and it’s my birthday month – just in case you wanted to know. Don’t mind that though 🙂 I just fear that I will have less creative time the closer we get to Christmas, but I will try and MAKE time to be creative. I crave it. I am sure most of you know exactly what I mean!

Tomorrow I plan to start the “This is our week” project, using the kit with the same name from Crazy Monday Kits, some other CMK products, and most likely some PL cards from my “small” Becky Higgins collection…

Here’s a little sneak of the first page that I started last night:


I’ve also cut out all the exclusive cut files from The Cut Shoppe. I need to fix my printer before I get my exclusive printables, and then I need to REMEMBER to take a LOT of photos.

That all sounds easy doesn’t it…

Have you done a project like this? This year, or earlier? Please share if you have!

Next, I’d like to share my LO for the new sketch over at Creative Scrappers. LOVE LOVE LOVE this sketch:


And here is my LO, using mainly the Crazy Monday October kit:

More October Creativity

Posted by swewi on October 26, 2014

Hi everyone!

It’s not often I get time to just “scrap for me”, with no assignment in mind. But today I took an hour away from housework and other “must do’s” and just scrapped a LO for fun. I just used whatever was on my desk, and I am really happy with the result! What do you think?

Lots of new yummy things on there 🙂 And I also played with my gelatos and some water 🙂

While I’m blogging, I’d like to share my latest LO for Creative Scrappers. I’ve used the Crazy Monday Kits October kit, full of Crate Paper & Fancy Pants yumminess! This is the sketch – you still have time to play along!

More in October

Posted by swewi on October 13, 2014

Today I’ve shared my last “official” LO over at The Cut Shoppe. Such an amazing store to be part of, with an incredibly talented team. I’ve had a BALL that’s for sure! The LO I’m sharing today is featuring me and my BFF – hence the title. You might recognise her? I’ve used both printables (“The Love Notes“) & cut files (the alpha “All Tied Up“) on this LO!!

I’ve used Crazy Monday July kit for this page (don’t have much left of this kit now!).

The next LO is for the BRAND NEW “Creating With Sketches 3” by Kristine Davidson. That’s one talented lady right there! You can buy this ebook too, at creativescrappers.bigcartel.com. Use coupon code V3Annelie to get 10% off anything from the shop – including the NEW book! So cool!

I can’t show you the sketch I got to play with, but here is the LO. The gorgeous little girl in the LO is a daughter of friends of mine. She is the happiest baby/girl I’ve ever met, and I love these photos of her that I snapped on my phone one day!

Hi everyone! Busy busy times for me, how about you? Don’t have as much time for creating as I’d like, but trying to sneak in as much as I can!

Here’s my latest projects for The Cut Shoppe:

First a LO with my darling man, using the “A Walk in the Clouds” file & my title is from the “So in Love” cut file. The papers are Amy Tan “Plus One”!

On this next  LO I have used the Crazy Monday September kit, love the colours in this kit! On this page I used “The Optical Illusion” as a mask. I also used the “Game On” cut file, and the “go” circle comes from the  “Driver’s Ed” file.

This next LO went through a few different stages 🙂 The cut files used are from “Happy Hashtag” & the cut file “Hip2BSquare” is what I used for my background.

And my latest LO for Creative Scrappers, for sketch #279.



Let’s be honest – this is not my kind of sketch, it messes with my white space addiction. So, this is my THIRD LO for this sketch, but I got there in the end!

I have used the Crazy Monday May kit for this LO – nice to have different kits to choose from!

More in July

Posted by swewi on July 30, 2014

I’ve got two LO’s to share with you today! First a LO I did with the Crazy Monday Kits colourful July kit, for The Cut Shoppe. I used the fabulous “Pie Hearts“, only I made one heart REALLY big 🙂 Then, as you can see I used a few different patterned papers to fill it up, did some sewing and went on putting a few embellishments on. I also used smaller version of the “Pie Hearts” as you can see 🙂

Hi scrappy friends! Time to share some more of my July creativity, following from my last post!

First another two LO’s that I did for the D-Lish cyber crop. This first one was for a recipe challenge I think, and I used products mostly from the Crazy Monday July kit. I am in LOVE with this colour combination, I am surprised actually 🙂

yes love

This next LO was for a colour challenge, LOVE this combo too. Just so lovely and summery!

Next LO to share is also created with the Crazy Monday July kit. It’s for Creative Scrappers sketch #273:


I started with gel medium that I had mixed with some drops of orange mist, used on a mask I did from a cut file from The Cut Shoppe. The cut out “triangles” were then used as embellishments on the page. And the “Love This” 3×4 card is also from The Cut Shoppe.

I added some black mist splatters as well of course 🙂

love this

love this detail 2

love this detail 3

Last LO to share today is my FIRST EVER LO from The Cut Shoppe. I LOVE using Ashley’s cut files, my only problem is to choose which one to use because they are all so cool!

First, I made the You Gotta Have Heart file a little smaller and used it as a mask, with modelling paste. Three of the cut out hearts was then used as embellishments.

I then cut the La La La LOVE You file on patterned paper rather than cardstock, because I wanted the title to “pop” on the page, and I think it worked a charm!

la la love you

la la love you detail 3

la la love you detail 2

Thanks so much for visiting my little place in the cyber world today, I appreciate you stopping by!

End of June

Posted by swewi on June 30, 2014

I seriously can’t believe that half of the year is gone. It’s been a busy and tumultuous year so far for the Maddock family and I can’t see it slow down anytime soon. I guess it’s just about strapping the seat belt on and hold on tight whilst the rollercoaster does it’s thing…

Today I’d like to share three LO’s 🙂 The first one is a NON PHOTO LO. Yep. Kristine over at Creative Scrappers keep challenging us – I hope you take up the challenge and play along! You can win a prize pack from Paper Camelia!

This is the sketch:



 This is my LO; I used the  Crazy Monday June kit for this one.

Yes. A tough LO to do. On so many levels!! But I’m glad I did it!

This next LO is done with the Crazy Monday June kit. A super duper colourful kit 🙂 LOVE it! I made the mask from a cut file from The Cut Shoppe!
