The whole of nZ has gone rugby crazeee :-) with flags every where- but great fun. My hubby took our boys to their first international match on sunday night, and what a game it was! Argentina v scotland so close down to the wire and all that.

Vintage Fan

Tonight was my turn to teach at Crafters Anonymous and I taught the ladies how to make this decorative fan, I think it could be used as a mini scrapbook too- many uses :)

Vintage Spring tag

Over at Crafters Anonymous we are welcoming Spring, yep down here in the Southern Hemisphere Spring is definately on it's way. We've asked everyone to either use this SU set called Nature's Song or anything with a bird or spring theme. I'm also entering my tag at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme is vintage.
I started by stamping the ATC with the bird and the egg images. then I've sponged the background. then for the base of the tag, I've stamped and sponged and distressed. Then I've added some pretty lace, flowers etc. I like how it's turned out, and I think the colours shout Spring.

Travel Bookmark

I'm just sneeking this travel inspired bookmark in to the Once in a Blue Moon challenge over at Ginger Snap creations This challenge was to choose any of the previous art Exchanges, I chose travel bookmarks, I had been hoping to make a few, but time ran away with me and so it's just the one I'm afraid.
I have created a pretty paris themed bookmark, there is quite a bit of texture added with tissue paper, but the bookmark isn't bulky, so should work well as a bookmark.
Whole heap of stamps on here, including SU Artistic Etchings, Faith In Nature and Provencal.

Have a great week everyone.

Christmas ATC

Over at Rogue Red Head Challenges Shar has asked us to make a Think Outside the ATC. I love ATC's at the best of times, but adding elements to the design to add extra dimension looks really cool. I have christmas on my mind at the moment ;-) so I've gone with a Christmas Theme. I've stamped and coloured the background and mounted onto some textured cardstock. I've then added some roses, ribbon, bling
and holly and a Christmas stamped image from Hero Arts. I added glitter to a chipboard bird for the final touch.

Have a great rest of the week.

I've really felt like doing some scrapbooking- I do love it and my kids love looking at the pages. Over at Crafters Anonymous, we've been creating pages for each month of the year, these are my July Pages. I love how they've turned out.
These are probably my fav pages so far this year.

Have a great day everyone

Teen Tribute

Gosh, it's been so long- too long since I had a play along at GingerSnap Creations. Here's a little wall hanging I've made for the GC115 Challenge- Tribute To Teens. I have to say I just love this. I've coloured the base using inks and gold acrylic paint. I've stamped random images with Cherry Cobbler (SU Ink), then embellished with a few bits and bobs from my stash. Finally I've hung the piece using one of those tag things- don't know what they're called.

Over the next few months this will become my main blog, I hope you get chance to visit sometimes, have a great week.
