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

yes love details 2

yes love details

yes love details 3

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

love this detail

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

la la love you detail

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

Happy Scrappy News

Posted by swewi on July 6, 2014

I am BEYOND excited to tell you that I have been invited to be on the inaugural design team for The Cut Shoppe!


I use my Silhouette Cameo heaps, and to be on a team where you get to showcase awesome cut files is a dream come true! If you haven’t checked out the shop  or the blog yet – hurry up and do so. Some awesome designs happening there! There is also a challenge up on the blog at the moment, where you can win a $10 shopping spree in the shop. Fun right? You gotta be in to win so off you go… after you’ve checked out the LO’s below of course 🙂

It’s been quite some time since I scrapped for challenges. But this weekend I did! I tagged along with the Birthday Bonanza Crop that D-Lish scraps organised, and so far I have produced 6 LO’s! Might squeeze another one in, but even if I don’t – I’m stoked with what I did. I even managed to do housework and support PaperVine at SENZ as well, so a WIN for me! 🙂

Here are four of the LO’s I did for the crop, will come back and show the rest in a few days!

I really need to squeeze a blog post in before January is over! This blogging thing is really getting ridiculous!

So. First up is a LO that just went up on the PaperHaus blog. I’m not afraid to say that I LOVE how this LO came out. We need to be proud of our work, right? My silhouette and my gelatos did the main work on this LO. It came out great I think 🙂

This next LO is also for the PaperHaus blog. For the January sketch – a sketch by me! Here is the sketch and my LO where I have used the Crazy Monday January kit:

Bye 2013 – Welcome 2014

Posted by swewi on December 31, 2013

With the year I have had in my personal life, I am happy to see the back of 2013!

From a creative perspective, it has been OK 🙂 I didn’t get as much time to create as I maybe wanted, but I treasured each creative moment massively. In 2013 I joined two amazing teams/sites: Sketchabilities and PaperHaus. I was also lucky to be a guest designer for D-Lish scraps, my GO-TO shop for most of my embellies! I am so thankful for the opportunities I had this year!

I decided to close my own challenge site, Challenge Me Happy. Not an easy decision, it was so much fun running it!

I kept myself busy with Crazy Monday Kits, adding PL kits to the family in July! It’s hard work when you already work full time and raise a family but I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing it! The scrapbooking business is a very hard business to be in. I am hoping things will run smoothly and successfully in 2014 for Crazy Monday Kits, and me!

I have been enjoying doing Project Life this year as well, and have been sharing some of my pages here. I am a few months behind at the moment, but who cares! It will get done, and my family LOVES looking through my albums, and that’s all that matters to me!

And finally, my favourite LO’s of 2013. In no particular order, here you go. (My previous favourites can be found here: 2012, 20112010, 2009, 2008).

Tell me your favourite in the comments, and I will send a RAK to one lucky commenter. Thank you and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

You take my breath away

Posted by swewi on October 2, 2013

So a few days ago my computer decided to poop itself. Just a tad scary for me who hadn’t updated my photos for a couple of months. That’s one of the main goals these next few days I tell ya… On my recent trip to Sweden I took almost 500 photos, but even my day to day photos of the girls and our lives are just as important for me.

That’s why I love Project Life. Did you know that I upload my PL pages here? I haven’t uploaded anything recently, but I have 6 months worth of pages from both 2012 & 2013 if you want to go and have a look…

My first post over at the PaperHaus blog was also sort of PL inspired 🙂 In the way that I used PL cards on my LO. There are so MANY beautiful and funky designs in Becky Higgins core kits, and I have just a few of those (aherm…)

Here is the LO that just pops because of my gorgeous Elsa. I just love this photo of her, and it captures her personality so well… She really DOES take my breath away sometimes when I look at her…

you take my breath away

you take my breath away detail

you take my breath away detail 2

you take my breath away detail 3

My next LO to share is for the latest Sketchabilities sketch, it’s #100. Here’s the awesome sketch:


And my example using the AWESOME Glitz line Finnley:

the best part of me

the best part of me detail 2

the best part of me detail 3

Lastly, a LO I did for my GDT spot over at D-Lish scraps (I LOVE the LOVE paper from Studio Calico by the way!):

oh my goodness

oh my goodness detail 3

oh my goodness detail

oh my goodness detail 2

Phew! Well done if you made it to the end. 🙂 Leave me a comment and I’ll send a little RAK to someone who did. Good luck and thanks for visiting my little home in cyberspace!

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:

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:

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:

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!!!

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!!
