I made this a few months ago, it was for a family members birthday. I really loved the colour combination with the red. It was just thrown together with mostly Kaisercraft goods. Sometimes it works out well and other times not.

This is the paint and wax I purchased to do up my desk. I love the pink it already is but its not practical and is showing all the wear so I needed to give it a makeover.

Washed it down with soapy water and let it dry overnight.

New Planner

I received my new Clover (green) Carpe Diem Planner last week and I must say I LOVE IT. Michelle from the stamp spot kindly ordered it in for me and the Reset girl accessories. They are adorable and I don’t want to use them on my planner, I want to make a layout with them. The girls are so sweet and all the little bits and pieces are divine. Washi tape, stickers with words and dividers, love it all. Haven’t done any scrapbooking lately as I have been having a change around with the whole layout of our lounge/dining/scrapbooking area….desks have changed and Im scaling down. Hope to get something done this week when I’m a bit more organised.

Love you!

Just a little card for my loved ones birthday recently. Some Kaisercraft paper, and some lovely St Tropez Collection from Prima. I liked this paper so much I didn’t want to cut it up, however its very cathartic to get your scissors out and carefully cut things up and enjoy looking at the beautiful colours. I have enough paper from this collection to do a nice layout, and I will be happy. This has been a long time habit of mine, and I’m sure some of you will understand…..I love the patterned paper so much I keep it, or buy 2 sheets and use one but stash the other….I can’t bear to cut it up! Silly really because we keep it if you are using it on a layout, then its preserved in plastic sleeves and we look at it lovingly, so these days I jump straight in and make a layout using the favourite pieces!

Thanks for visiting.
