I did this page this morning . I just wanted to have some messy fun time , and believe me I did . I got my hands a but dirty doing this one . Now thats what Mulberries are all about ! I remember Mulberry fights with my brothers was alway so much fun . This photo was of my grandson Eli's first time eating mulberries and boy did he enjoy it . He loved the feel of them squishing between his fingers. Not sure his Mum was that impressed.

I cut out some wooden plank paper from Kaiser Atittude range then wiped gesso all over it as I didnt like how dark it was, than I stamped  around with kaiser background stamps. Then I sprayed and flicked Shazza's magic mists all over it then I stuck the photo down an inked up the edges and put a layer of crackle acents on the edge of photo . Its not showing up that well put its a pretty cool grudgy look with the crackle edge  .

I sprayed the letters with Glimmer Mist and then inked the edges . I added crackle accents to the heart as well .I also Have added glossy accents to the red drips to make them stand out more . 

This messy fun page didnt take long at all and not a charm in sight......YET ........ LOL
Hi all I took my inspiration for this page from a card I found here I really like the clean fresh simple style of this card .

But just to keep it interesting I made it a doulbe hidden page . I kept the simple style threw out and Iam pleased with how it turned out . The florish is a new one I just bought from  It is a Cherry Lyn die and there is three sizes to choose from.

I have punched out the flowers with EK success daisy punch and layered them and added a Kaiser wooden heart . On the inside pages I have just used a heart punch to keep it flat .

Hope you enjoy looking and please leave a comment Untill next time Shazz

Hi all cant believe its been so long since I posted on my blogg . I  went to the Quilt and Craft show in Brisbane last week and went to "The Paper Craft Hub' stand . I met Emilia the designer of " Francy That" dies . What an awesome woman and so approchable . We talked about trends and dies and all sorts of stuff . I just loved the balloon dies and had to buy it plus serveral other dies as well . Yes I fed my addiction for dies again.  So here is my first page using "Fancy That " Balloon dies ,Iam sure there will be many more  . 

I used one of the new 12 x 12  Lucky 8 punches to make the large fancy red paper shape .I bought them from this site!/groups/211521352283974/  Tenisha has a special on punches at the moment take a look .     I have used  Kaisercraft " Check In" paper range , Tim Holtz film strip , rosette flowers and Charms from my stash. Yes I know Iam addict to charms . Not sure which is worse my addiction to charms or dies LOL.

Too enhance the ballon die cuts a bit more I have used a clound die cut and inked around the edge to make it look like a cloundy sky .
 The photo is of my grandson Eli . Eli' Mum has an addiction to professional  photo shoots .( Hmmmm wonder where she gets that from) These are the latest ones she had done .  Super cute not that Iam bias or any thing LOL

Hope you enjoy the page and take time to  look at the new dies Emilia has on the site as well as some of usual favorites untill next time" stay sain keep crafting"   Cheers Sharon

I decided to  try the same page again with different cut out . The last post was a heart . Iam very happy with how it turned out although I think a wedding or engagement photo would have suited this page better . I dont even have any lovey dovey photos as I have been single for 10 years and 3 of my grown up children are single and the one that is in a relationship I have no photos of .

I have used spellbinders flower dies and a dynamics flower die ,I cant remember what the brand name of the small round spiral die is but its a light blue coloured die .  The florishes are a spellbinders die  . The white background has spacer inbetween so the photos are recessed on the black cardstock .

The flowers all have pearls in the centre and the butterflies are silver foil paper . The hearts are punched out of red glitter paper ,
