project life week 3...

I've been a busy scrapper and am back with another share, this time using the beautiful January Kits from Scrappy Canary.
There are lots of lovely colours in these kits and I love that the elements seemed be a perfect match for all my photos.

Here's a closer look at the right hand side - you can see more detailed pics on my original post on the Scrappy Canary blog.

I am currently working on week 4 using this kit, and hope you'll stop by again next week to have a peek :)

project life week 2 and an insert...

Hi again, I'm still playing with my awesome Daily Diary kit from and loving it :)This is the third double spread I have completed and still have heaps of product left!!
I shared week 2 on this post but just in case you missed it here it is again...
 I have included close up pics along with info on how I have used several of the elements in the original post, so head there if you'd like a closer look.

I also created an insert for a day at the coast to go with week one...

 again you'll need to head over to the NoelMignon blog for a closer look, but as you can see the kit is very versatile and can help you create a variety of different looks.

Thanks for stopping by xx


project life and a little organisaion...

I've made a start on my 2015 project life album and happy to have completed week one using the awesome Hey Girl Daily Diary kit from
  I absolutely love the fun patterns and colours in this kit and have shared close-ups and details about the various elements over on the NoelMigon Blog, so head to the blog if you'd like more details.
Before I began this year's album I spent a bit of time organising all my supplies in my new Ikea, Kallax shelving unit which I shared on this post.
I purchased the drawer and door options for this unit and have used a variety of clear containers and baskets to keep my supplies organised. The black and white fabric cubes are from Target, and the white baskets were found at Woolworths.

My favourite storage solution are these photo storage cases - they come with 12 individual cases designed to hold 4x6" photos but I have used mine to store all my project life cards and co-ordinating pieces as well as one case dedicated to various paper tags and embellishments sorted by colour. 

I purchased mine from Lincraft but have also seen them available online under the name 'Iris Photo Storage'.

 I am also using a few containers with divided compartments to store washi tapes, flairs and paperclips and one just for wood veneers. I found the bottom two in the hardware section of Kmart but also bought the top one from the storage section at Bunnings.

I have filled one of my fabric storage cubes with clear A4 file cases (found in some supermarkets & office supply stores) and am using these to hold various stickers, enamel dots as well as a few for my cutting dies which I have placed onto magnetic sheets.
  I had such a great response to the post and had a lot of questions about what else I have stored in my shelving unit so thought I would share a couple more pics.

I have sorted my pocket page protectors by design in D ring albums and have used another album to store my masks and stencils.

I am using one of my CTMH storage cases to store various inks and mists, and a larger one to hold all my clear stamps and embossing folders (sorted in Avery Elle storage pockets)

It feels great to be a bit more organised and it's really saving me a lot of time when I want to find a particular product.

january @ scrap the boys...

Happy New Year!!! I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for some scrapping :) We are kicking off the year with a fun new challenge over at Scrap The Boys and I'm very happy to be returning for another term with the team.

My inspiration for this layout came from the colours and images in this month's awesome mood board. 

 I stepped out of my comfort zone using a mix of bold colours that I would not have normally used together, but really liked how they worked on my page.

Be sure to stop by the STB blog to have a look at the fabulous examples created by the other members of the team, and don't forget to get your layouts uploaded by the end of the month for a chance to win this month's awesome prizes!! 

Thanks for stopping by xx
