We have a new addition :o)


Hi there folks!
I hope you are having a super day so far? Here we are battling ridiculous temperatures….it is 9.31pm here & around 30 degrees C. Seriously!! It is that hot, which is why after I am finished with my post here, I am going to have a swim to cool off.

Today I have a cute page I want to share using my Feb kit about the newest addition in our family. Two weeks ago this pretty grey & white kitten decided to come live with us….he was dirty, hungry & very lost. It didn’t take much tho’ to get this little guy happy again…..loads of kitty food, cuddles around the clock & a new name, Roxy, as christened by Max. He has stolen our hearts & here to stay….hence my page title “Smitten by this kitten”.

It was a fun page to put together, using my scallop circle punches & some clouds that I hand drew & cut out, a bit of brown ink, a bunch of buttons & a whole lot of stitching.

I hope you have a much fun using it as inspiration, as I had putting it together.

Have a gr8 day!
Chat soon!

Feb kit rocks!


Hello again guys! Don’t be shocked….x2 blog posts in one week….what can I say??? The Feb kit has been so great to work with I just can’t help myself. Over the next couple of days¬† I am going to share a couple of my L.O’s with you. So make sure to pop back.

Today’s page ‘Dance’ is about living life to the full. A quote by Mary Anne Radmacher perfectly sums up my thoughts.dancekwatsonmed1

Dance to the song of life
LIVE with intention
Walk to the EDGE

Mini ‘Me’ album.


Hello guys!! It feels like ages since I blogged here, I hope you had a super valentines weekend & are recharged & ready to scrap???

I made a cute mini album form the February kit that I wanted to share with you. It is quick & easy to put together….take a look.

1. Choose your paper for the outside cover;  I chose this gorgeous blue & silver paper from Pink Paislee. 7 Gypsies gaffer tape down the spine stabilizes & finishes of the booklet nicely.

2. Cut yourself a card template in the exact shape of one of the pages, then trace & cut enough different pieces to fill the booklet. Adhere & trim if necessary.img_7579

3. This is an idea of how the booklet should look at this stage.

4. Using punches, stamps or creative cuts from the patterned paper in the Februray kit, make a shape for every second page. Adhere & ink outsides of pages with black ink.

5. Print & cut out your photos into the desired sizes. I used 4.5×7.5cm for all x4 of them.

6. The booklet is ready to have it’s cover done. I used lace, a cut out flower, the metal butterfly & brad & come cute mini alphas from Carolees Creations for Adornit.
