Last Day of Spring

Hi everyone - today is the last day of Spring and here in Sydney, Australia it's going to be hot, hot, hot with showers and thunderstorms. That's Springtime going out with a big BANG!! And more of the same on the way through Summer I dare say.

Don't you just love the Farmer's Market range from Crate paper? I especially love this 'Produce' design. Says spring and summer all over doesn't it?

Have a great day - stay cool, stay dry and don't forget to join us tomorrow for the start of our count down to Christmas!

(: Happy Scrapping :)

His Birthday

Alison Ellis "What Birthday' has just been reduced to clear at Aunty Vera's. This gorgeous range is just perfect for your birthday pages....

The 'What Birthday' range includes designs embossed with silver metallic foil or overprinted with glitter. I love the glittery cupcakes!

I've cut out cupcakes from the 'Party Border' page and adhered them with foam dots for a 3D effect.

And don't forget to add some journaling, or a date or number, to remember 'Which Birthday' in years to come :)

Christmas Chipboard Wreath

I had a bit of fun this week working on this 'off the page' project...

I love the Christmas Wreath Kit from 2Crafty - it has so many possibilities.

I started by covering the 'baubles' with some pretty Christmas paper and using a good old-fashioned emery board to file the edges clean. I then painted the rims with gold paint.

I then worked out positioning and glued the baubles onto the wreath base.

I like to use Tombow glue for projects like this as it has a super strong bond.

I found a gorgeous feather garland at my local Bed Bath and Table and carefully glued it around the back of the wreath.

Looks lovely from the front now!

Now all that was left to do was to add a few decorations for that bit of bling-ness....

The Santa and Sleigh is from the 2Crafty Mini Santa Sleighs cardpack (coated in gold glitter) and the Merry from the 2Crafty Merry Christmas card pack (painted red and the Dimensional Magicked).
