Love Always Wins...
Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend at some level.  It is Sunday night here in the Southern Hemisphere and I have spent a good part of the afternoon and evening creating in front of the 'Fire Fight Australia' Bushfire Relief Concert - it is amazing and so touching to see so many amazing muscians come together to fundraise after the bushfires.Something I have had sitting on my desk for some time is this beautiful figurine that my DH gave me when things were changing for me creatively - it made him think of Frida Kahlo and the sentiment is perfect. When he gave it to me he said, 'this is to inspire you as you enter a new season' - he said I was transitioning, which I don't mind as long as it doesn't involve hormones LOL!  I have to be totally honest and admit that she sat on my desk for 6 months - I didn't want to ruin her...so I waited....I started by adding recycled sari silk as a headband,making sure it was wrapped around her bun - and that was all I needed to get started - funny what inspired us isn't it!?  To this I added a mixure of flowers and leaves - after all Frida is known for her beautiful floral crowns. I have used a mixture of Little Birdie Crafts flowers and some from my stash.  A silver chain and heart was added around her neck and secure using glue.I do have to say at this stage the thin eyebrows were a little bit challenging - espcially when Frida is known for her 'monobrow' so I slowly thickened them with a fine pen and brushstrokes - they need to be thicker but I will do that at some stage...Embellishments from my stash were added around the waist, starting with a thing strip of tulle at the waist, a gold jewellery piece - a grape cluster and a teal bird.  Above the lace around the hem I added an old bracelet, small flowers and small shells that were glued onto the bracelet.  The shells were from my beautiful Nana - I have had them for some time and loved the touch they add.  I have used Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L to adhere all of the embellishments I have added.I added depth to the flowers using Chameleon Alcohol Markers, along with a little Crackle Paste to give it a more aged appearance - just a light touch, but loving the effect it added.  I finished off by filling in the indents/dots around the metal wings with a white paint pen - all in all I am very happy with the wayshe looks, but you can be sure I will continue to add bits and pieces along the way until I feel she is complete - if there is such a thing LOL!This project is linked to the following challenges:Simon Says Monday Challenge - Crack It UpA Bit More Time to Craft - Always Anything GoesA Perfect Time To Craft - Always Anything GoesBleeding Art Challenge - Always Anything GoesClassic Design  Challenge - Always Anything Goes Creative Craft Cottage Challenges - Add a HeartDL.Art Linky Challenge - Always Anything GoesNot Just Cards - Always Anything GoesWorld Wide Open Design Team Challenge - Always Anything GoesFab n Funky - LoveThe Three Muses - Flowers Word Art Wednesdays - Anything GoesEverybody-Art-Challenge - Color of LoveDare 2B Artzy Challenges - Love is in the AirWe Love 2 Create  - Always Anything Creative/Mixed Media GoesThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

It has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies; the die has been used as a stencil and the inside sponged using ink and a sponge dauber before the die is removed, creating a crisp white frame.The flowers are a mix from my stash and Little Birdie Crafts Flowers, along with buttons and 3D leaves from my stash.  The beautiful Kookaburra is from a set of  Kaisercraft Collectibles.  I have used Scrabook Adhesives BY 3L and Want2Scrap Bling - my 'go to' products. This card is linked to the following challenges:A Bit More Time to Craft - Always Anything GoesCrafty Creations - Always Anything GoesArtistic Stampers - WordsClassic Design  Challenge - Always Anything Goes Crafts Galore Encore - Always Anything GoesSimon Says Stamp - With LoveCrafty Animals - Always Anything GoesThe Paper Funday - Anything Goes/Optional Twist ValentinesCrafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with Patterned PaperCreatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes with optional HeartsWord Art Wednesdays  - Anything Goes DL.Art Linky Challenge - Always Anything Goes2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Anything Goes with a CritterNot Just Cards - Always Anything GoesSweet Stampers - Anything GoesWorld Wide Open Design Team Challenge - Always Anything Goes Brown Sugar -  ANYTHING GOES Crafty Catz - ANYTHING GOES WITH OPTIONAL TWIST EMBOSSING WET OR DRY QKR Stampede - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes Moving along with the Times - No Image, sentiment/quote as the focus of your card Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

Sweet Napkin Card
Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by - I am happy to say I am back in The Studio after a few uninspiring weeks due to being between a State of Emergency, packed ready to evacuate or Watch and Alert with the Bush Fires.  I finally managed to create a card using one of the many serviettes/napkins I have stashed away - who can resist these sweet strawberries?!I have used layered the napkin onto a Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 6" x 4"Adhesive Sheet and added a Kaisercraft Die cut across the centre of the card front, along with a strip of red and white spotted patterned paper along the top of the Die cut.  Little Birdie Crafts flowers and a butterfly have been added to the card front - the die cut bow behind the flowers is from Spellbinders.  I think I had better get the other Napkins turned into cards - very soon! I have not added a sentiment as the card can be used for many occasions - including up and coming Valentines for those who celebrate.This card is linked to the following challenges:Everybody-Art-Challenge - Color of LoveA Gem of a Challenge - Anything GoesPaper Minutes - Valentine's DayArtsystamper Challenge - FLOWERS Crafter's Castle - Anything GoesCrafty Calendar - Use Die Cuts / PunchesSimon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - FLORAL FRENZYCreative Fingers - ALWAYS  ANYTHING GOES QKR Stampede - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOESCrafty Creations - Always Anything GoesSimon Says Stamp - Anything Goes Sisterhood of Crafters - Newly Acquired StashWord Art Wednesdays - Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread - Always Anything GoesGet Creative Challenges - SOMETHING NEW (Die)A Bit More Time to Craft - Always Anything GoesA Perfect Time To Craft -Always Anything GoesCrafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with Patterned PaperCreatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes with optional add a snowflakeCreations in Pink - Anything Goes in Mainly PinkDie Cut Divas - New Things (Die)DL.Art Linky Challenge - Always Anything GoesLove to Craft - Anything GoesMorgan's ArtWorld Open Challenge - Anything GoesPapercraft Business Challenge - Anything GoesSognando Scrap - Anything Goes with Red and WhiteTales From The Craft Room - Something NewThe Creative Crafters - Anything GoesThe Corrosive Challenges - Always Anything GoesThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

Birthday Showers
Hello friends - I enjoyed a little time in The Studio and in an attempt to clear away the some of the layers (and there were many) on my desk - I ended up creating this masculine card - yes the 'dreaded man card!'.  I do love the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man and had an embossed image which I sponged over using Imagine Memento Ink in Desert Sand and Summer Sky.The sentiment is from a Penny Black Inc. set. I have stamped it using Imagine Memento ink Rhubarb Stalk.  The tag has been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Adhesive Runner,  tabs and a button have been added to the card front and a ticket stub popped in, secured with a little glue.The layers have been popped up onto a card front of patterned paper using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares..  This in turn has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base also using Canvas Corp patterned paper and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.This card is linked to the following challenges:As You Like It Challenge - Anything Goes Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything GoesLavinia World Challenges - Anything Goes Using Rubber Or Clear StampsCrafty Creations - Always Anything GoesCreative Moments - Anything GoesPaper Shelter - Shades of BlueThe Paper Funday - Anything Goes/Optional Twist FriendshipWord Art Wednesdays - Anything GoesEverybody-Art-Challenge - Anything GoesLemon Shortbread - Always Anything Goes A Perfect Time To Craft - Always Anything GoesCrafts Galore Encore - Always Anything GoesCrafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with Patterned PaperNot Just Cards - Always Anything GoesThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

When the Butterfly...
Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by!  Todays card is a quick and easy one using flowers and butterflies- you can't get lovelier than that - in my opinion!The card front has been created using some left over pieces of patterned paper and pre-cut images from Tim Holtz - they have been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares for the perfect amount of dimension.  This card is still postable at the standard rate - even with the added dimension;something we all take into consideration these days.The beautiful sentiment has been computer generated and adhered directly onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner. I have finished off with a tiny plastic flower that has been glued to the butterflies body and a Want2Scrap Black Baby Bling adhered to the centre.This card is linked to the following challenges:Word Art Wednesday - Anything GoesEverybody-Art-Challenge - Anything GoesLemon Shortbread - Always Anything Goes Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes 2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Anything Goes with a CritterCreatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes with optional add a snowflakeCrafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with Patterned PaperCreative Craft Cottage Challenges - Anything GoesLeAnn’s World 101 - Anything GoesLet's Craft & Create Challenge - Anything Goes + option: Love is in the AirLove to Craft - Anything GoesMorgan's ArtWorld Open Challenge - Anything GoesPapercraft Business Challenge - Anything GoesTales From The Craft Room - Something NewThe Creative Crafters - Anything GoesWorld Wide Open Design Team Challenge - Always Anything Goes A Place To Start - ANYTHING GOES w/option CASGet Creative Challenges - SOMETHING NEWThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

Keep Calm
Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  I am happy to say after the crazy weather here in Australia we are enjoying a normal day with a perfect temperature of 26 Degrees Celsius . Today I have a fancy fold card to share with you - it has been created from a left over kit I used for a Workshop - I have used it quite a few times but it looks different with the products you use - today's theme is keeping calm! Wink: Wink!I created the card base by scoring Authentique Paper at 5cm, 5cm, 3cm, 3cm and 2cm to create the different height steps - so easy to do, especially when using a good thick double sided paper.  Fold the card into mountain and valley folds to form the card base I have stamped the images using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Coffee, adding background details in Cocoa ink.  I picked up these stamps when I was in Arizona with Spellbinders; they have been trimmed and adhered to the steps of the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. The Coffee Embellishments have been cut from Canvas Corp paper.The Little Birdie Crafts Flowers have been glued to the card base. Want2Scrap pearls have been added to the lace trim using glue.  This card is linked to the following challenges:Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: ShinyDragonfly Dreams - Anything GoesStamping Sensations - Favorite StampsThe Corrosive Challenges - Always Anything GoesA Gem of a Challenge - Anything GoesAllsorts - More Than A Single Word SentimentCrafter's Castle - Anything Goes Crafty Friends Challenge - Anything Goes Brown Sugar - ANYTHING GOESCrafty Catz - ANYTHING GOES WITH OPTIONAL TWIST FUNNY  Creative Fingers - ALWAYS  ANYTHING GOES  Pattie's Creations - ANYTHING GOESQKR Stampede - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES Scrapper’s Delights - ANYTHING GOESAs You Like It Challenge - Anything GoesLavinia World Challenges - Anything Goes Using Rubber Or Clear Stamps Artistic Stampers - Anything GoesCrafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with Patterned PaperCreatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes with optional add a snowflakeCreative Craft Cottage Challenges - Anything GoesDL.Art Linky Challenge - Always Anything GoesNot Just Cards - Always Anything GoesThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

The Song in Your Heart
Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I have another Art Journal Page to share with you today - it is my 'go to' creative zone' at the moment. As I have mentioned with each page - we are all on a journey, whether it is art, faith, health or something else.  This one was inspired by the wonderful sentiment - one that I love - sentiments are often an inspiration for me.The eclectic sentiment has been created using a card from Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company - another one I have put aside thinking I will use it one day - I am sure we all have those - or is it just me!?! LOL! I have trimmed the sentiment into rows and inked around the edges using a black maker.The beautiful flowers are from Tim Holtz , along with the Tim Holtz Paper Dolls are part of a prize I won recently on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  The flowers have been adhered  across the lower portion of the page, creating a half wreath, using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner.  The wonderful ladies have been popped up across the flowers using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A few white splatters were added using White paint.The butterfly has been added to the top left corner and a wooden embellishment glued to the centre. Details have been added to the wings and other areas of the page using a White Gel Pen and the wings have been layered up to give a little dimension using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.I just love this journal created using recycled cardboard - I have great plans for it .... hope you join me as I continue this journey!! This project is linked to the following challenges:Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Something NewA Vintage Journey - WE'RE ALL GETTING OLDER  making things look older... time for some distressing, antiquing, ageing and weatheringCrafty Catz - ANYTHING GOES WITH OPTIONAL TWIST ANIMALS Brown Sugar -  ANYTHING GOES Creative Fingers - ALWAYS  ANYTHING GOESQKR Stampede - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES Moving along with the Times - All Things NewArt-Journal-Journey - Something NewCreatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes with optional WishesCreative Craft Cottage Challenges - Anything GoesMorgan's ArtWorld Open Challenge - Anything GoesA Gem of a Challenge#- Anything Goes Allsorts - Say It With FlowersChallenge Up Your Life - Anything GoesMy Time to Craft - New StashThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!

Baby Album
Hello friends - welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  I am trying to make the most of  a quiet moment and play a little catch up with posts and projects.  Today I am sharing a Baby Album I created for my niece who is expecting a beautiful baby girl in March - I have t be honest and say I really tried to tone it back a little - girl albums are so easy to go crazy on - I think I reached a good compromise -needless to say my niece loved it and I look forward to seeing photos in it once my great-niece arrives.I have used older Authentique Paper patterned papers for the album, love the soft pastels - it is so easy to mix and match with a Collection, it certainly takes the guesswork out of it!  I have used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner to adhere the papers to the album pages.The sentiments are from a Kaisercraft Collection - obviously a baby girl collection, along with the Authentique Papers sentiments. The beautiful flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts - I love the variety and dimension without being too bulky!  Some of  the sentiments have been adhered to Spellbinders Dies and tucked into pockets.Wooden butterflies and miscellaneous embellishments have been added.  Every embellishment that is overlapping onto white card stock for photos has been left with that portion free of adhesive to allow the photo to be popped in.This project is linked to the following challenges:Word Art Wednesday - Anything GoesEllibelle's Crafty Wednesday - New Goodies/Old favorites or BothCrafty Sentiments Challenge - Anything GoesPaper Shelter - New BeginningsArty Divas Challenge - Anything GoesThe Three Muses - PinkPaper Fun Days - Anything Goes - Optional FriendshipLemon Shortbread - Always Anything GoesSimon Says Wednesday - Fun with FloralsThrough The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes Creative Moments - Anything GoesAlways Fun Challenges - SOMETHING NEWCrafty Creations - Anything GoesGet Creative Challenges - SOMETHING NEW613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: ShinyThank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!!
