Hi scrappers!! I have a mountain of scrap kits cluttering up my scrap room - so I have already posted them previously on here BUT, I have dropped the prices.
All kits come with full instructions & materials to make the project shown.

12 x 12 scrap page kits that were originally $20 & $25
NOW $10.00 & $15.00 (AUD) 

'Junk Diary' was $40.00
NOW $25.00 (AUD)

and much much more - just click on the page tab on the right hand side that says:
KITS FOR SALE & it will bring up all my listed kits :)

'Everyday Life' scrap page

I created this page for my inspiration board, that hangs in my scrap room. I love using white backgrounds at the moment. Handy hint for you, all I use is the white inserts that come in your album page refills!!! I have a whole stack of them - so what better use for them :)

I've used the following to make this:

- acrylic paint (black & teal)                - paper scraps
- white rub ons                                     - thickers
- TH chit chat stickers                         - Stazon ink
- stamps                                               - border punches
- washi tape                                         - black bling
- black felt pen

So pull the white pages out of your album refills & make something pretty out of them :)

My Chaotic Mess!!!

Here is a few snapshots of my very untidy scrap room. There's no mojo lurking in this chaos!!

I got some peg board from Bunnings & made 2 panels to go on the fronts of my cupboard doors. It's great, now I can see what I have in my stash & use it. It's like having my own little shop LOL!! Bad side: My hubby can also see what I have stashed he he....

 I brought an old frame from a garage sale, put some chook wire behind it & decided to use it as my inspiration board :)

Art Journal Pages
These are some of the art journal pages I've done since being inspired by Donna Downey the other weekend. I loved her class, but I was busting to sit there & just let the mojo flow!!!

This page says:
"Accept everything about yourself. I mean everything.
You are you & that is the begining & the end. No Apologies, No Regrets...."

'Always Dream Big'

'Art Helps Me Breathe'

'No day is so bad, it cannot be fixed with a nap'

'Stars can't shine without darkness' - ohhh washi tape is my fav thing atm!!!!

I guess you've picked my favourite colour by now LOL!!!
I hope you've been inspired to start some of your own art journalling :)

I Met Donna Downey!!!!

On the weekend I attended Donna's class 'Inspirational Journal' @ Pages 2 Scrap in Gosford.
I had such an awesome time!! Donna a fantastic lady - she tells it has it is, swears like a trooper & is fabulous to be around!!! I had a great time using my heat gun - having a 4 1/2 month old in the house has limited me to it's use!! By the time I finally get him to sleep - there is NO way I am risking waking him up LOL!!

Thank you Donna for a super class :)

'ROCK N ROLL'Wedding Mini


This mini Album I made for my sister & her new husband. She told me she wanted one of the coffee table photo books from a photo lab, but I wasn't to keen on the idea - they are so impersonal & why when I can make cool shit like this :)

I went to Vinnies & brought a handleful of LP records. I got my husband to drill all the holes in prior to covering the records.

Their wedding was very 'Rock n Roll', lots of red, black, roses, skulls etc.  I used whatever papers I had in my stash that would work, washi tape, photo cut outs, tickets etc. 

So remember, you're not just limited to chipboard for mini albums -
think outside of the square :)

'QUOTES' Mini Album

This little mini album I created for all those scrap bits of paper I have with quotes & sayings on them that I like... I finally put them all together into this cute little book. I designed the pages in Photoshop & dropped in the jpgs I found of my fav quotes & printed them as 5x7 photos. I then covered the backs of the photos with  ruled not paper & inked the edges. Then bounded it all together with my Bind-It-All.

 'RILEY' Paper Bag Mini Album

This little mini album I created using white paper bags from Riot Art. There are heaps of tutorials on Youtube how to make one of these. Really easy & really affective! I used the paper range from Simple Stories 'Baby Steps', it is such a cool baby range. I love it!! Below are just a couple of pages, but I will put the link to my Youtube video below, so you can see it in more detail :)

'OUR FAMILY' Mini Album

This mini album I created with scraps of chipboard from my stash, so it's a bit of a mis-mash!! I used the 8x8 Printery paper collection from Prima for this & whatever other scraps I had.

 I love how it turned out! The word 'family' were originally blue chipboard letters that I used a black permanent marker to colour in & then used 'Snickerdoodle Smooch' to dot over the letters. They look pretty cool! I covered all the chipboard pages & inked around the the edges with distress ink & then bound it all together with my Bind-It-All. I grabbed anything that would coordinate with this & then just went nuts LOL!!! Washi tape, Photo Cut outs, flowers, metal trinkets, bling etc!

I've also done a Youtube video on this mini. Here's the link

Hope I've inspired you to rifle through your stash to
create a beautiful keepsake :)
