1st of the month reveal

Posted by swewi on November 1, 2011

SO it’s my birthday month! YAY!!! Won’t celebrate all month though, but got a few fun things planned. Lucky me!!


Today is the first day of the month, which means a new challenge is up at Challenge Me Happy! Our new designers have their fist challenge LO up, and all the “old” designers have of course joined them. It’s an AWESOME challenge and a FANTASTIC reveal!! This is my take, but PLEASE go and check all the other inspiration out. And participate – it’s the easiest challenge we’ve had so far!! There’s also a fantastic kit from Mollys Scrapbooking to be won. Yay!!



I was lucky enough to get sponsored materil from Scrappin’ Patch this month. This is paper & acetate frame from the “Summer’s End” colletion from Fancy Pants. I have to say I struggled a little with the acetate (frame), but finally did something I am quite happy about! I love the soft colours in this collection, together with the orange & bright green!


Then – Handmade Halo has their first ever challenge up. A lovely sketch by the talented Em Stafrace. This is my BRIGHT take on the sketch, using Halo goodies:





I love this photo of Elsa. It catches her stubborn and independent personality perfectly. She definately goes her own way already…

OK. That’s it for today – go check out those challenges now. Please? 🙂 I might by myself a birdcage today, just ‘cos…

Have you seen the MASTERCARD ads? The punchline is always “something something something… priceless…”. That’s what I had in my head whilst creating this LO about Tova finally getting to hang out with her favourite aunt who lives in England. It’s my latest LO for Challenge Me Happy, and I’ve used mainly HALO goodies on there!


And can you believe the Christmas card I shared in my last post won me a prize over at Fancy Pants? I sure can’t! Amazing… Because of that I’ll share a simple card I made for Molly’s recently, using Pink Paislee papers & a lovely Manorhouse Creations flower.



So, that’s it for today. More to come SOON. Some of my fav’s STILL waiting to be shared! LOL


And – go the All Blacks! 😉

Round up

Posted by swewi on October 8, 2011

I have been planning to blog all week, but I have been busy busy busy so it hasn’t happened. The fact that my flu came back as well wasn’t helping either! I’m so over flu season – bring on summer!!!

So. I won’t waste time on chit chat. Here’s what I have been creating lately. I have some more stuff to show as well, but can’t share until it has gone up on particular blogs!




For the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge – use stamps! And remember we have a DT call over there!



Cards. I never make cards – but lately I’ve made a few! Here are two for Halo:




Two cards for World Card Making Day, first one for Fancy Pants, second for Pink Paislee. Both using older papers. 🙂




Found a photo of a card I made for a friend a little while back as well, might as well share…


A couple of birthday cards using Echo Park:



I hope you have all survived this array of cards! I have made more actually, but will spare you!


Enjoy your weekend, will be back as soon as I can with a couple of my latest FAVOURITE LO’s!

Well whaddayaknow…

Posted by swewi on September 19, 2011

…I SCRAPPED! Sunday afternoon I decided to take an hour to shuffle some stuff around in my scrap studio – and I ended up doing THREE LO’s! After two weeks of nothing – boom! They might not be the most complicated or amazing LO’s I’ve ever done, but I’m creating again, and my girls like them. And THAT has to be the most important thing!

As I am one to scrap recent photos more happily than old photos, I’m trying to challenge myself to do a little of both at the moment. So that’s what I did. I scrapped one old photo, one not so old photo,and one almost brand new photo. 🙂 For the first two LO’s I’ve used Little Yellow Bicycle papers & embellies. I seem to always go back to BRIGHT colours when I’ve been in a creative rut!

And for this next LO I used Echo Park “Victoria Gardens” and some LOOOVELY resin embellies from Halo Scrapbooking. You need to check that site out if you haven’t already!

I’m so happy to be scrapping again. Long may it last!

Posted by swewi on August 7, 2011

Today I sat down and created a LO I’ve had in my head for a little while. It took me about 20 minutes to do. I had the idea, I just needed to decide on photo, colours and  go! It’s with gorgeous stuff from D-lish Scraps, some Prima lace/bling & alphas, and some glimmermist. The chipboard piece is from Magistical Memories!

Details, because I can!

Now, you might have noticed that I like cool embellishments… 🙂 So I am sooooooo excited to be one of the designers for the new, cool shop Handmade Halo Scrapbooking & Fashion Accessories! Go check it out, they have awesome stuff!!! Perfect for that “little extra” on your crafty project!

Hope you have a happy week. Something very exciting is happening to me this week, so it should be good… 🙂 ’til next time!
