Blitzy Bargains!!!!!!!!

I have been having some great luck scoring some AWESOME specials on scrapbooking and cardmaking stuff at Blitzy.  It is a runout shop basically so they have lots of end of lines and overuns of fabby products.  For example a few weeks ago they had tattered angels products at ridiculously cheap prices, and I scored myself the complete set of Tim Holtz distress Markers dirt cheap.

Follow this link and get hooked up, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday new products are added so be observant and quick so you don't miss out.......

Some Bits and Pieces and an apology

Wow, things have been so weird and crazy around here lately that I have been totally neglecting my blog and crafting.  There has been a few things happening, some family stuff, school went back, birthday craziness and an upcoming craft fair which I am going to be selling my cards at (well hopefully some cards anyway:)

I have made this layout this week for the Challenge Me Happy blog, this month it is a photo challenge....

I made it using some glimmer sprays and my Central High Studio Calico Kit, I am pretty excited as my new kit arrived earlier this week but I haven't had a chance to play, hopefully I will this weekend.  I am listing the overun from my September Kit on Trade Me, I usually get 2 of some of the stuff as I am getting both the card kit and the scrapbook kit.  Go check out the "Stuff I am Selling" link at the top of my blog under the header to have a look.

I also made this card for my Dad for his birthday, no image which is unusual for me......

I forgot to take a pic before I left the house so this one was taken after Connor had written in it and Dad had read it so please excuse the bends :)  I used the Echo Park This and That Genuine collection to make the card.

A couple of weeks ago I made this dress for JoJo for the summer, I love the way it turned out and the colours look great on her.  Also a refreshing change from pink I guess.

I took the photos in my Mum and Dad's awesome garden.  The dress is still a little big but I have made it that way so it fits her once Summer comes.

So that is it a little round up of what I have been busy with, thanks for dropping by and I would love to know what you think of my creations :)

SGC - Tie A Ribbon Round It

Good morning my lovely followers :)  This morning I want to share another layout with you ( I am loving this new scrapping freedom:)
The challenge at Southern Girls for the next couple of weeks is to use a spooled item on your project.  I have made this layout with my Studio Calico kit.  These are some old photos of Angus that I had in my scrapping box.  They reminded me of how before he went to school he had to be watched constantly because he was always on the run, down to the dam, onto the road, everywhere but where he should be!

Thanks loads for coming by my blog, I would love to know what you think of my creations.....

Digital Tuesday - Steampunk Challenge

This week at Digital Tuesday we would like to see Steampunk cards. Talk about a challenge ;)  I have never even attempted a steampunk anything before this and I kinda think my card turned out as a gothic/steampunk hybrid.  I used the very gothy Little Red from Spesch Stamps and did my usual colouring with prisma pencils on watercolour paper.......

I did have loads of fun grunging and painting this with distress inks, glimmerglaze and glimmerglam.  It is the first time I have got really messy and creative with the TA glimmer products and it was AWESOME FUN!  I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the gears and the pearls are prima which I altered using glimmerglaze in saffron.

Thanks loads for coming by.......

CSI Challenge - Fly Layout

I am enjoying the school holidays with my kids at the moment, it is lovely not to have to rush around madly in the morning trying to get the boys out the door by 8.05 :)  I am also enjoying spending alot of quality time with the kidlets because I have resigned from a few DTs to make family time.  Connor and Angus are loving it and I am finding myself more motivated to spend time in my scrap room at night while Andrew is doing his work at the dinner table.

On Wednesday night I made this layout for the current CSI CHALLENGE.  It is another photo from the same batch as I talked about in a previous post.

The background is bazzill cardstock and I have sprayed it with TA glimmermist in key lime and TA chalkboard in teal high heel, the papers are Teresa Collins and the rubon stars and wings are both from Hambly.  The small letters are cosmo cricket and the large orange ones are AC Thickers.  The ribbon is SU pacific point striped grosgrain.

Thanks for coming by my blog.......

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments, I have used one of their images on my card along with some digital papers.
