This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Follow Your Heart Canvas - BoBunny Soiree Collection

Hello Everyone

I created a mixed media canvas, using the Soiree Collection, as well as the Soiree Decoupage Paper.

I covered the canvas with the decoupage paper and thick gel medium. I allowed for some folds etc. as I did not want a smooth finish. I then used the fabulous new BoBunny crackle paste and did some stencilling.  I then added some paints, some inks and lots of stamping.

Lastly, here is a view of the flower cluster.

I love this sentiment, so "me" right now...LOL
I am trying to do exactly that! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Thanks so much for your love and comments!
I hope you have an amazing day!

Mini Album - Home Sweet Home - Graphic 45 - Part 2

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing Part 2 of my mini album/recipe book, which I made for my sister for Mothers Day on Sunday.

Yesterday I shared the cover and the first half of the album, so today I will share the rest of the pages.

I did not add too many elements that would make this little album bulky, as this type of album did not allow for  it.

Aren't those tomatoes just so pretty and fresh! ;-) 

I love being able to fussy cut elements, especially when they are so pretty. They add flavour and taste to a project, without the bulk! LOL 

Lastly, here is the outside cover.

I really hope that my sister likes it. 

So have you made anything for Mother's Day?

I am busy with some Mothers Day cards too, so I will share those soon.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you have a super day!

Mini Album - Home Sweet Home - Graphic 45

Hello Everyone

Mother's Day is coming up soon here, it's next Sunday.
So I wanted to make something special for my sister.
She loves cooking and is a real "home bird" so hopefully she will like this mini album, come recipe book.

There's quite a lot of photo's etc. so think I will probably split it over 2 posts.

Okay, so here's the cover.

The pretty, red flower type elements are actually red cabbages! I thought they were so pretty that one could certainly use them as flowers! ;-)

I did some mixed media effects, which I carried through the entire album, just to be consistent with my theme. I used a really pretty Prima stencil, throughout this album.

Below is the first page.

I also did some fussy cutting! ;-) I mean, what would a Denise project be without some fussy cutting!!

I went for some rustic, water colour outlining on the pages, which I think adds nicely to this theme. 

This Home Sweet Home Collection is so perfectly homely and cottagey! ;-)

Well that's exactly half way through the album, so tomorrow I will share the other half.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a great Tuesday! ;-)

Advice from the Ocean Card - BoBunny Beach Therapy

Hello Everyone

I have a mixed media card to share with you today, using the gorgeous BoBunny Beach Therapy Collection.

I love this little "Advice" Poem and really wanted to use it.

I did some fussy cutting and just love those little red flowers.

I could surely use some Beach Therapy at the moment...what I would give to sit beside the ocean and hear the waves crashing on the shore!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super, scrappy day!

Scrap Africa Sketch no.74 - Journal Page - Graphic 45

Hello Everyone

Sorry for not posting for a couple of days.  I took a few days off work and so I have been relaxing and chilling at home, creating and pottering, but no posting! ;-)

So yes, in the background, I have surely been creating and today I have a journal page to share for the new Scrap Africa sketch challenge! ;-)
Just to mention, our challenges are now monthly and so you have a whole month to play along! ;-)

So here's the journal page that I created.

I used some Graphic 45 French Country papers and goodies! These are still some of my favourite papers! ;-)

I did some water colouring, some embossing, some stamping and fussy cutting! All the things I love to do! ;-)

The sentiment is one of my favourites too and is definitely my theme for my life at the moment.

"Always find time for the things that make you happy to feel alive"

I cut all the circles using the 

Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK - Circles

Maybe also check out the super new Stencilling with Sizzix.
There really are some super ideas! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a happy and creative Sunday!

Zooty Cuties Cards - FabScraps

Hello Everyone

I hope that you had a good weekend! ;-)

Sadly, I learnt today, that I did not make the Graphic 45 Design Team!
It was a great achievement to have made the TOP 30 finalists, but would have been the cherry on the cake to actually make the team.
I was disappointed but will certainly be back next year to try again! ;-)

For today, I still have some cards that I made, using the Zooty Cutie Collection.

This collection has some really cute elements that can be fussy cut.

and here's the last one.

Such a super collection for kiddies! ;-)

Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a super evening!

Cutie - FabScraps Zooty Cuties Collection

Hello Everyone

I still have some FabScraps projects that I have not shared with you and so today, I am sharing a page that I really enjoyed creating and really love! ;-)

When I create pages about my boy....then these are always filled with so much love and affection.

I used the Zooty Cuties collection.

I love the colouring on this page and that the photo is really the focus! ;-)

Here's a close-up.

Just the other day this boy-tjie was a toddler!!!!

Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you had a fabulous day.
