cut and paste

Last month Peta sent me the new My Minds Eye 'Cut and Paste' designer kit  from the SFS shop.

I loved it immediately, the colours we soft and girly. Perfect for me :) AND it is only $15! AND I have made 4 layouts and have only scraps left.

I used this kit for my sketch challenge for this month too.

I have added some Mambi Clear Stickers in some of the layouts as well, they come in both black and white and are great for titles or embellishments.

Pop over to the SFS blog to see what other challenges the girls have for you this month!

my september challenge for sfs

Spring is here! This is my favourite season of the year, beautiful days and cool nights. Perfect hey?

Life is still hectic with working 5 days a week and running a household with two teenage girls who are very sociable. And that doesn't leave much time for scrapping sadly. But I have two retreats coming up and that will give me time to do heaps.

I do have a share for you today though. My colour challenge for SFS. I love this 'Cut and Paste' kit from My Minds Eye.

All of our challenges are now on the SFS blog as sadly we are closing the forum down.

So pop on over and see what the other design team members have to inspire you this month.
Don't forget you can enter as many as you can for your chance to win a $20 voucher. If we receive more than 30 entries a $10 voucher will also be awarded. Please note our winners are picked randomly so that everyone has a chance to win some SFS $$$
  There is a 'linky' on the side bar of the blog to link your pages :)

i have been a busy girl!

For the last two months I have been working full time. Which doesn't leave much time for anything else. BUT I have managed to do a bit of scrapping. 

Last month Peta sent me the gorgeous Fancy Pants 'Memories Captured' Collections kit.

To say I loved it was an understatement. I managed to get 7 layouts done and some still left over! You may have already seen one of them in my What's on Wednesday on the SFS blog

a hard decision to make

Hello my friends

I just wanted to let you all know that I have stepped down from the Scrap The Girls DT.

Now I am working every day and trying to fit that, home and my commitments with SFS in, there isn't much time for anything else. 

I have loved being part of this team for the last year and a half. Still looking forward to seeing your entries in the challenges every month!

time for a challenge and some SFS news

Another exciting month over at SFS. But a sad one too.  

Firstly we sadly have to say good bye to one of our long term Design Team Members Deb, due to work changes in the family she has decided it best to step down.  We will miss her inspiring layouts and challenges :(

But we are lucky enough to have Anita Rodway joining the team. Check out her work  and her awesome how to videos here


There are lots more exciting things coming to SFS in the near future!

 Don't forget to pop over to our facebook page to keep up to date with everything that is happening.

 All of the DT challenges are now up in the forum if you are looking for some inspiration to get that mojo flowing.

My Sketch Challenge this month involves lots of layering. I have used some We R Memory Keepers Journalling Cards made for Project Life in my layout... such a quick page to make. Great if you are stuck for time :)

I will be back soon to share the rest of the DT challenges for you.

busy busy bee

Wow! What a busy 2 months I have had. Three retreats, 2 out of state and one at the Gold Coast and a trip to the Sunshine Coast for a social day with fellow industry peers of my husbands... You would think that I would have got heaps of scrapping done... but alas no but I have thoroughly enjoyed being a member of the SFS retreat team, a great opportunity to meet in real life those awesome scrappers that I have 'met' on line. And the laughs are amazing, so many stories are shared... some serious.. and some freaking hilarious!  I am not sure that I will fit another Scrap Girls retreat in this year, but I am looking forward to seeing the SFS girls again in October. 

Miss Peta has kidnapped my layouts from the NSW retreats, and I haven't had a chance to even unpack my bag from the retreat on the weekend so I don't have any of those to share... but I do have my SFS Colour Challenge to share with you tonight.

I have a lovely girly colour pallet for you this month.

There are quite a few colours in the pallet this month, therefore I would like you to use it for inspiration, not necessarily to use all of the colours if you choose not too. You can use some black or white to compliment them as well.

light blue, yellow, magenta, red, white

I am looking forward to seeing your entries in the gallery to be in the running for some SFS dollars to spend in the shop. Oh.. just to let you know there has been HEAPS of new products uploaded over there in the last couple of days... and lots more to come!

I will be back soon to share the Scrap the Girls challenge for this month.
