Mother's Day

This is a scraplift layout from Paisleys and Polka Dots, I created the flower using satin fabric circles from a tutorial found here. They are such fun to create and brilliant on cards.
The papers used are from the 365 Degrees range by Pink Paisley and you can buy them here

Photos taken on Mother's Day at a local park called Wireless Hill


A very simple layout of my son simply using the clothing tags off items we have purchased recently! The background paper is from the Basic Gray-Basics range.


Vibrant, colourful and fun to use. The new Cosmo Cricket range called De Lovely did not need much to create a layout. I still have so much of this awesome paper left to create another layout and a few cards!Pictures of Bronwyn taken on Mother's Day this year.

A couple of cards

These cards were created for a couple of friends birthdays. I created the fabric flowers and added Prima flower centres and some old Making Memories Bling Brads

DT Layout for June

I so love using My Minds Eye,the papers are textured and the colours so vibrant, in this layout I used the So Sophie range from here. I created the chiffon flowers. I also used Martha Stewart punches, Prima Flower Gems
The card is simple, I just punched out 9 hearts in the different papers and cardstock, the plain hearts were embossed and I added a bit of bling.

Easter Sunday

A sketch challenge here. I so love the papers from My Minds Eye and had to look at them for a while before I could use them! The crochet doily came from here

Pink Paisley and My Little Shoebox

These pages were DT projects for handmadebysuzanne There is that adorable baby again! The papers I used were from My Little Shoe Box. I loved the 'backs' of the pages from the different ranges and the tag die cuts are fun and easy to use.
A page of my daughter, just before she turned 15 going on a school social. I thought the Pink Paisley Queen Bee Papers were perfect. I also used Basic Grey rub-ons with a bling, American Craft Thickers, Bling and ribbon.

These two cards were from a card pack which was available here, now sold out!Basic Gray-Lemonade however there are other paper and card packs still available

I made these two cards with the Basic Grey Sugar Rush card packs available here

June Sketch

The June sketch is up at Handmadebysuzanne I love this sketch, it is so easy to create a page or three as you can rotate it and get a whole new look. The paper flowers were created by watching this tutorial. I used all three Retro flowers from EK Success. The photos are of my friends baby girl, I think some of you may have seen her before here!
The crochet doilies came from a wonderful etsy shop here

Flower Tutorials

I discovered how to make these flowers from here! The template I used was actually a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die you can find here

and I created these flowers from this tutorial here

A Birthday Card

This was a card I made for a friend. The printed papers were from a child's novel purchased from Good Sammys, the embossing plate is Cuttlebug. The flower die is the new Tim Holtz die from www.annascraftcupboard

Crate Paper-Pink Plum Collection

This collection is so girly and vibrant. The butterfly punch on the card is by Martha Stewart. The photos were taken at school by a friend of my DD as she is studying photography in the Special Art program.The theme being Rock Star!

March Projects, Sassafrass

I found using Sassafrass papers a challenge but was happy with the results after finding a photo of my Mum as a 17 year old and having recently been to Zimbabwe to celebrate her 70th Birthday. The range of papers were from the Cherry Delicious range available at handmadebysuzanne

Kaiser Craft-Prairie Lane Collection

As soon as I saw this range I knew I had the perfect photo to create a page. This was my DH and DS having a little moment whilst on a weekend break in the beautiful South.

The card created from the leftovers was created using the embossing plate from sizzix, punch used for the flower was the EK Success Retro Flower -large. The papers, cardstock and sizzix plate were all from handmadebysuzanne

A New Blog!

I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a member of handmadebysuzanne's Design Team. Here are a couple of the first projects I did for her. Love that Basic Grey Origins.I have many more photos to use with this versatile range.
Sugar Rush is another range by Basic Grey, I love the bright colours and the way all the papers blend so easily together.
