My More Than Words Design Team Creation
Spetember Challenge
"Forever In My Heart"

Hi there friends thanks for stopping by.
Today I have my September design team reveal for the new challenge over at


September Challenge

Word Inspiration - ORIGINS
Creative Challenge - YOUR COUNTRY COLOURS

What does the word ORIGINS inspire you to create? You can choose to use the 

actual word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Please explain

 in your blog post how it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

For the creative challenge, we want you to wave YOUR COUNTRY COLOURS loud and proud! We ask that you create your project using colours that represent your part of the world. 

You can choose to use the colours in your country's flag, or the colour of your national 

flower or animal. You can even be inspired by the colours of a well known attraction or

 place or even custom that embodies your origins. Make sure to name in your blog post the

 colours you chose and explain why.

I was inspired by the word ORIGIN to go with the whole "green & gold" theme which 
are Australia's national colours, although not the colours of our flag. These are the colours 
all our athletes wear when competing internationally & for the Olympics etc.

 For the CREATIVE part of the challenge I found these great pics of old Australian 
postage stamps featuring wattle which is our national flower & the other one has an 
Australian bird on it, then I threw lots of flowers on it in our green & gold colour scheme.

Love the whole green & gold colour combo,
expecially on the black background.

A little mixed media on my background & then a whole lot of flowers.

I hope I have inspired you in some small way to perhaps play along with us this month.

Until next time....

Some More 2Crafty Chipboard
Design Team Inspiration
"Beauty in Green"

Hi there paper friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another layout to share with you that is part of my
July design team inspiration for 

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Corner Alexia
Mini Corner Set #3
Tiny Henri Frames
Mini Word Set #1

On this layout I have treated all the chipboard pieces the same, kind of creating a matching set.

They were all simply painted with a gorgeous metallic green acrylic paint.

These little corners help frame my layout.

A lovely subtle mixed media background.

I actually taught this layout as a class a couple of weeks ago
up in Queensland for The Vintage Chicks Club.
The girls did an awesome job of it too.

Here you can see I have used a corner chippie piece in a
different way & then added the little chippie frame over it.

Hope you like my layout today.

Until next time.

Guest Designing for AB.Studios
Some More 2Crafty Chipboard Design Team Inspiration

Hi there paper friends, thanks for calling by.

I am "Guest Designing"again today for my dear friends over at

These papers I have used on this layout are all from their 
"Diary" paper collection.

How gorgeous are their papers!!

I did lots of fussy cutting all these lovely floral images & tags.

I have also used some of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard pieces too.

Lots of layers & lots of textures too.

A few flowers from Green Tara for good measure too.
I always love mixing paper flowers in amongst fussy cut ones.

I sprayed some gauze to match.

The little word strips I have used are also cut from the sheet with all the tags on.

Viola, another layout complete.

Until next time.

Guest Designing For AB.Studios
"More Than Words Challenge" August DT Reveal

Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by.
Today I have yet another layout to share with you.

It is a joint post for both my DT reveal for the current August challenge over on the
More Than Words challenge blog.


Also I was asked to do some "Guest Designing" for my good friends at
They are a Polish manufacturer of gorgeous papers, stamps, stencils & more.
Check out all their goodies in their online store.
They have sooo many beautiful things.
This is the  August More Than Words Challenge.

So as you can see from the sketch above, the requirement this month
was for two or three photos. (I tweeked the sketch a tiny bit !!)

All these gorgeous papers I have used on my layout are from AB.Studios 
and were just perfect for fussy cutting which is excatly what I did.

These AB.Studios papers are from their "Enchanted Flowers" collection.

They floral image I fussy cut really looks beautiful here I think overlayed over
their other two beautiful papers. (Both the white one & the pink one)

A tiny bit of mixed media added, but kept to a minimum.

Just a few extra flowers added to the mix. I can't scrap without some flowers.

Some of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard too.

Hey presto, all finished.

Be sure to check out the AB. Studios website too.

I do hope you find some spare time this month to play along with us at
As always we have EIGHT PRIZES up for grabs.

Until next time...
