Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas Gift Card - Honey and Hugs!

I love making Christmas cards, especially with decoupage on them. So I used Cordinations cardstock, sizzix scallop dies x2 sizes, sizzix vines embossing folder, rhinestones, rhinestone strips, Prima flowers and Bazzill ribbon. I also inked the edges with pink smooch.

Christmas Gift Ideas - Note Wallet

Here are a few Christmas Gift Ideas to get you started on your gift making for Christmas that is fast approaching. These make great friendship and teacher gifts.

One Today, Smile and Card - Party Animals by Kaisercraft

So I have been locked away in my little scrapping room playing about with heaps of yummy papers and embellishments. These layouts and the little card were made with Kaisercrafts Party Animal Range. The colours in the palate were so easy to work with as they are a wonderful combination and pretty much can match in with almost all pics especially little children like my little guy in these. I have inked the edges with Charcoal and Mango colour box inks, spritzed the backgrounds with Smooch Carrot Cake and Sun Kissed inks. This helps take away the stark white in the background and also adds a little more dimension to the papers. After all, little boys aren't often clean and white! That's why we love them so very much. lol!

I added a few Rhinestones to add depth to the background that has been spritzed and also a little funky trim around the Lion as a mane and also orange pom pom trim to the banner flags. Adding a little ink and paper punching can really finish off a layout and set it aside from the rest!

I used a tag out of the little tag book and topped it off with half a pin wheel which I inked the edges of.
I have used a couple of Rhinestone strips and a Zva Black swirl to finish off this simple layout.
You may have noticed I added some little googly eyes to the animals. So simple but so effective. 
I really like these and so do my littlies.
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!

Winter Snow! We R Memory Keepers

Merry January are just the perfect match for these photo's. Prima always come to the party with the right colours in their embellishments. They never cease to amaze me.  As you know I am a super Prima fan! :-) The flowers are from their latest release and so is the glass vine. The fabric flowers were from a previous release. Better get that right before I get corrected. Lol! The snow flakes are by K and Co and what a lovely match they are to these papers.

Dream! We R memory Keepers.

The pools on our vacation were simply a Dream!  The papers I used were from Merry January by We R Memory Keepers, new flowers by Prima and Kaisercraft. Glass vines from new Prima Release. I love using these colours and they match the piccies so well.

Watch Me Roar!

Little Yellow Bicycle papers are a treat to work with! The colours are fabulous and so easy to create such simple and fun layouts with as they go with so many pictures. As you can see I have used bling from Kaisercraft, embellies from K and Co and have just cut out some little dino's from the papers to create the embellishments. To finish off the little lions, I sued some googly eyes. Too cute! TFL. Julie

Pretty in Pink Secrets Box!

Here is a little project sure to melt someones heart when they receive this as a gift. I have made this project once before, but I must say this is my favourite so far. I have added a few more pics than usual so that you can have a closer look. Hope you like it. :-) Julie
I used Prima papers, Webster Pages lace trim, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Kaisercraft,Prima and Mayaroad flowers, and Pearl tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The punched border lace is done with a Martha stewart Punch. This was a lot of fun to create!

This is a little note card that I made with the leftovers. Super sweet and easy to make.  

Island Dream! Webster Pages and Prima

I really do think it's important to remember to count your blessings. I for one need to remind myself of this quite often. It's so easy to take life for granted. This picture was taken on our family holiday on Hamilton Island earlier this year. We all had an amazing time and look forward to returning to the beautiful beaches and magnificent marine life. Our kids had a wonderful time and made some fabulous memories to last a lifetime. 
I used Webster Pages papers, Prima anfd Kaisercraft flowers and embellishments. Bling was from Zva. Hope you like it and enjoy!

Day Dream! Blae and Ivy Collection by Kaisercraft

Day dreamer is such a peaceful layout with these super refreshing colours.
Blae and Ivy Collection by Kaisercraft is such a versatile collection. 
One of my new favourites especially when you put it with Prima and Zva of course. And yes I have used a Martha Stewart punch and did a bit of distressing, added some
ink and a piece of Webster Pages lace. 
Hope you like it! Julie :-)

Memories Forever! Blae and Ivy Collection by Kaisercraft.

Looking back on these pictures makes me want to be back on Holidays! Ho Hum! Anyway, these lovely Spring fresh colours really do the Blae and Ivy collection justice. 
The embellies are from Kaisercraft, Prima and Zva. I have also added a little Glimmermists to the background to add some shimmering glare to match the beach theme. 
Oh and not to forget the inks, which really soften the edges and also add some dimension. I used ice blue, sand beige and a misty grey. Thanks for peeping! Julie :-)

Beach Babe - Bobunny Barefoot and Bliss!

I just love working with these fresh colours.  The papers are form Bobunny Barefoot and Bliss range, flowers by Prima and Kaisrcraft, trim by Webster Pages and Bling lettering I chopped up and made my own words from Kaisercraft Rhinestone words. 
Thanks for having a peak! Have a lovely Spring Day! Julie

Hamilton Is...........Peace, Love and Flip Flops!

When it comes to needing some relaxation, Hamilton Island is just the place to be! Beautiful weather, heaps of sun and beach and more beach to play on and explore. The local Green Turtles are a must see paddling around on cyacks. So just a super simple one this time. Barefoot and Bliss paper, chip stickers, stickers and finished with a little Crystalina Glitz.
Happy Crafting.........

Barefoot and Bliss! Sunkissed Kids.......Splishin and a splashin!

Little kids just having some fun. When it comes to water, especially the beach, my kids just have the time of their lives! This layout was so simple to do as the papers compliment the pics so well. So get out your scorer and make yourself some embellishments. So easy and it adds a bit of fun to your page. The papers, stickers and chip stickers are from Barefoot and Bliss for this layout and finished it off with Crystalina Glitz.
Thanks for peaking and have a nice day!

Barefoot and Bliss! You are my Sunshine!

Hi Ladies,.... thanks for popping in. Be sure to have yourself a cuppa while Blogging, I sure do as it helps
you relax during your me time! 
So, here are my littlies having a bunch of fun with their friend at the beach at Easter this year. Boy does time fly! So you are going to see a few layouts this week using Bobunnies Barefoot and Bliss. Summer is on it's way and so these papers and embellies are super handy to have in your stash for those much loved "fun in the sun or out and about" shots! This layout was created with the Barefoot and Bliss papers, chipboard stickers, embellishment stickers and then finished off with rhinestone strips and diamanties plus a dash of Crystalina Kindy Glitz! Oh I almost forgot to mention I used Smooch Spritz which is super simple and fun to use.
Thanks for popping by and enjoy your day!

Be the Star that you are! Ryan!

This is my little guy having a ball at Easter making the most of the last warm days of Autumn! He just loves water as you can see!!!  Yes he's a bit of a beach babe! Well at least I think so......! 
So I used Bobunny's Blast Off range which is so vibrant and therefore has so many uses with boys and girls!! I am a bit of a star fan and so just love these papers. The die cut is super funky and the matching stickers are super fun to add that finishing touch. The layout was blinged up with rhinestones by Kaisercraft and Papermania to add a little shine to the stars!

Thanks for popping by and have a lovely time crafting!


Hi Ladies, .......... I have this sweet little layout of my 2 girls having some time out under the sun on holidays earlier this year. So I thought I would share it with you all to peak at. I was happy with this layout as the colours just seamed to flow so very well.   I used Prima and Webster Pages papers and Core cardstock which sands up really well. I enjoyed playing around with distressing, inking and sanding to give this layout a bit of extra depth. I punched out the lace with Martha Stewart punches, the flowers are by Prima and Kaisercraft and the chipboard bodice is Kaisercraft. I added a little bling by Zva which just gives it that lovely finishing touch! 
Nice of you to pop by and Happy Scrapping!

Play Time!!!!

Its always fun taking time out and heading down to the park by the beach for a little Rand R or should I say climbing the rails for a closer look. This is my little guy watching the Kite Surfers at Caloundra on Queenslands Sunshine Coast! An awesome day out and about in the sun. 
This layout was made using Kaisercrafts "Little Toot Collection". Some simple pin wheels which I made using Martha Stewarts Score Board, which I just love, and a bit or cor'dinations sanded. Easy! TFL!

One of a kind!

Our little Tink is certainly one of a kind. This pic was taken on her 5th Birthday searching the fairy garden for yummy little fairy treats! She was given this beautiful dress for her birthday with matching shoes and she treasures it so much. 
I found this a very easy layout to do as the papers were a perfect match. The papers are Chanteuse by Kaisercraft and embellishments are by Melissa Frances, Prima, Zva and Kaisercraft. I also used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels and 2 punches by Martha Stewart which are really lovely!
Hope you like it and thanks for looking!!!

Reflections Collection Mini Album

Sometimes it's nice to make something a little different and to have a break away from doing layouts. So I had a little fun making this mini, which I guess isn't such a mini anymore! 
I have used heaps of my leftovers making this which was super as they were a perfect match to the Prima Reflections Collection 6x6 Paper pad. Take a peak at the whole album which I have posted below. They should be in order. :-)
As you can see, this album doesn't have any pics in it yet, so you can turn it into a sweet wishes album or simply a mini album of a special person or occasion. You could even make it a combination!


Thanks for having a peak! Hope you like the mini. Fun project to do and another one for the gift box ready for Christmas......scary thought, but it's a creeping our way sooner than you think!
