Hi everyone!

wow its been ages since I posted anything.
My life has been in turmoil and unfortunately it has resulted in me feeling very uncreative.
I'm trying to get back on my feet at the moment and will try to start posting again in August. Thankyou everyone who sent concerned emails, and to those who have asked questions which I never responded to I'm so very sorry :-(

Sorry I haven't posted but...................

I fell over, well I didn't really fall I was tripped up by a clumsy dumb dog that I should never have taken for a run. I have a sprained right ankle, grazed left knee, bruised right knee, grazed palms and a very sore left shoulder......................whoever said exercise was good for them!

Anchors Aweigh Layout

This is the layout I used with my Anchors Aweigh file available in May N'Titled
Paper: Kaisercraft - pack your bags collection - Compass, Tickets & Travel Map
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: SU! basic brown
Cutting Files: Title, ric rac, anchor & wheel
Journaling: One of the things I love about you being a scout is the adventures you get that you otherwise would never have experienced. Your night on the James Craig was one of those experiences. You hauled the cargo aboard, slept in a hammock (or at least tried to after falling out once or twice) and learnt all about what life would have been like, over 100 years ago, on the high seas.

This is the first of my contributions to May N'Titled. I made the penguin for a layout I was making and thought the added title would make it a cute addition to pages featuring men all dressed up ready for the prom or some other formal occasion.

Clowning Around!

This is the title that I welded onto my clown that I posted on Wednesday. I made it a circle so it could be an element on the page but I've included the clown separately in case you want to use a different title.

and here it is as it will look at TSI

Use this title with photos of clowns or of clown costumes or just crazy clown like behavior. It would also make a fabulous addition to pages featuring people learning to juggle or other drama related activities. Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutting file formats.

Clowning Around = $3.99

Wednesday, May 12, 2010


I'm doing a layout, at the moment, of my daughter dressed in a clown costume that we made in a hurry when we realized her scout camp had a theme. For my use I've welded a title to this clown that I'll share on Friday.

Icicle Border

I'm still working on my snow layouts and one of them just needed a little something else so I created this icicle border. This border will be a perfect addition to all your wintery pages.

Fun in the Flakes Layout

This is the layout I made using my Fun in the Flakes cutter file.

Paper: Basic Grey - Blitzen Collection - snowballs
Friskars - Heidi grace designs - snowflake park mono
Cardstock: Bazzill

VersaMark watermark stamp pad
Heat set powder

Journaling: Until we went to Perisher the kids had not even seen snow let alone touched or played in it. We had such a fun family day tobogganing and tubing our way down the slopes. Jackson couldn't be stopped, everytime he got to the bottom of the slope he raced right back up to the top until he eventually collapsed in teary exhaustion.




and here is a little snowflake flower I created using the separate snowflakes provided in the file.

Fun in the Flakes Title

Keeping with the cold, wintery theme I thought I would share this title I made to go with photos of my family sledding and tobogganing at Perisher last year.

The 3 styles of snowflakes are also included separately in the file so you can further embellish you page. When I cut the file I cut 2 layers in white. On the word "flakes" I have applied some glitter and adhered it with 3D adhesive to differentiate between the whites. It looks really pretty in real life, unfortunately the scan did not capture all the glittery sparkles. This file is available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutter file formats and is already available at TSI

Fun in the Flakes = $2.99

Snug as a Bug Title

This is the title I made to go with my "bug in a rug" which will be used on a page featuring photos of my kids all rugged up in their winter woolies on our trip to the snow last year.

Bug in a Rug

I'm currently trying to create layouts using photos from our trip to the snow last July so expect quite a few wintery files to be shared. I made this cute little bug in a rug to go with pictures of my kids all wrapped up in their winter woolies.

Sew Fun

Lots of scrappers have other hobbies and sewing, quilting, cross stitch, tapestry etc seem to be a common sideline craft obsession for many scrappers I know. If you are not a fan yourself then maybe you need to scrap photos of your childs first sewing endeavor.

Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutting file formats as part of the April N'Titled group of files.

Little Tornado

Do you have a little tornado?
A child, grandchild, pet etc that leaves a path of destruction wherever they go.
I have two of these called Deanna and Jackson and they were the inspiration for this file and also the reason I never have a clean house (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :-0)

The tornado comes with or without the title attached and is available as part of the April N'Titled files.
Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCAL, SVG & WPC cutter file formats

BULA! I'm Home!

Hi everyone I'm home safe and sound from my very relaxing Fiji holiday. I had a wonderful time and would love to start scrapping the photos immediately but I'm determined to finish my 2009 photos before I start :-)

I have quite a few emails from some of you that I need to respond to so please be patient as I will get around to answering you all!

Scrambling for Eggs Layout

as promised here is my layout created using my Scrambling for Eggs cutting files

Paper - pink paislee - cupid collection - bow & arrow, hearts bloom, bullseye
Cardstock - Bazzill
Ink- Stazon black, SU! real red
Stamps from SU! season of joy & spotlight on Christmas
liquid glass
Cutting files: scrambling for eggs

Every time I've shared this layout someone has asked what material I used to cut the red in the title so I'll tell you all before you need to ask. The entire title is cut in bazzill but on the red I have applied some liquid glass to make it thicker and more blingy!

Scrambling for Eggs

Here is the title I made to go with my running chicken for last years Easter page. I thought "Scrambling for Eggs" was a much cuter idea than "Easter Egg Hunt" and all the other titles that have been done to death.

and here are the title and chicken all bundled together.........

I know I made these for an Easter page but if you replace the coloured eggs with white ones then these files would also be great for farm pages involving chickens or collecting eggs for those that don't have Easter pages to complete. Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCAL, SVG, WPC cutting files formats.

Scrambling for Eggs = $3.99

Running Chicken

I designed this chicken for an Easter page I've made. Isn't he just hysterical! I'll share the title I made to go with him and the layout I made before I leave for Fiji.

Going to Fiji

Yep that's right its time for a family holiday again.
I'm leaving in a week and will be gone for 2 weeks! If you need any files before then contact me but remember you can always buy them from TSI while I'm gone.

I can't wait to see how many fabulous things we see and do that will just have to be scrapped *grin*

Nutty Bundle

This bundle combines my "My little Peanut" title, "Every Family has a few Nuts" title and "Driving me Nutty" title. Now you can have a title for all the nuttiness in your life. If the titles don't work for you then don't forget that all the nuts are included separately so they can be used as embellishments with your own title. I'm thinking my daughters obsession with peanut butter will definitely now be scrapped. Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutting file formats.

This Bundle and all the individual nutty files have already been uploaded to TSI

Nutty Bundle = $4.49

Every Family has a few Nuts

This is the last of my nutty files and this one is all about family. Whether it’s the kids playing sillies or the grownups thinking they are still kids you are always guaranteed to see some crazy behavior when families get together. As with the other nutty files, the nuts are included separate from the title for those that have another idea. Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutting file formats.

Every Family has a few Nuts = $2.49

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Driving Me Nutty

Have you ever been driven completely nuts or maybe it’s you that drives someone else completely nuts!This is my second title in my nutty series. The wacky eyed peanut is also included separately if you want to use it with a different title. Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutting file formats.

Driving Me Nutty = $2.49

My Little Peanut

I made this file, by request, for a customer that has always called her daughter, her little peanut. I thought it was such a cute nickname and really enjoyed making this file. If you have your own little peanut then this is the title for you. The peanut is also included separately from the title so it can be used as an embellishment or with your own title. Available in AI, GSD, KNK, SCUT, SVG & WPC cutting file formats.

I'll share some more of my nutty titles later in the week.

March N'Titled - First Day @ Big School

This is my last contribution to the March N'Titled club. I made this file for my sons first day of school page. He started school over a year ago *blush* and up until now I hadn't managed to get it scrapped. I'll share the layout I created later in the week. The backpack is included in the file separately for those of you who don't have a first day of school to scrap but still have school pages to complete.
Don't forget to pop on over to TSI and purchase the March N'Titled files before the end of the month to get all 21 files for only $10

March N'Titled - Year of the Tiger

2010 is the Chinese year of the tiger so I thought it would be a nice idea to make a tiger file. The tiger comes with or without the Chinese symbol for tiger welded onto the mat. If you don't plan on doing and year of the tiger or Chinese new year celebration pages then this tiger would also be a good addition to zoo pages, tiger face painting or dress up pages etc

March N'Titled - Lucky Charm

I couldn't let March slip by without a little bit of Ireland creeping into my files. This title would be great on a St Patrick's Day page but also really nice on a page about someone you love with the title "YOU ARE MY Lucky Charm" or maybe you or someone you know has a lucky charm that should be scrapped, or maybe you don't like that title but just want to use the 4 leaf clover element that has been included separate from the title........................either way don't forget to head over to TSI and pick up this great bundle of files before the end of the month.

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

March N'Titled

Wow another month has flown by and March N'Titled is now available. Here is a preview of all the files and I will give you a closer look at my contributions and some ideas on how to use them.

Funny Faces

Well here they are, all bundled together. I made all these files to go on a layout of my daughter pulling faces for the camera, we all have those photos and we probably never choose to scrap them but I decided that these photos were precious and if nothing else they will definitely embarrass her at her 21st *grin* I have not uploaded these files to TSI yet but will get it done over the weekend.

Funny Faces = $3.99
