Scrapbook Savvy - MME Everyday Fun

I've been having a blast creating layouts from the gorgeous My Minds Eye collection, Everyday fun. Sar sent the papers, borders, rhinestones and twine to me just before Christmas and I have slowly been putting pages together in between festivities. I still have loads of paper left and will definitely be doing some more pages with it when I get the chance.

Staring early

This page also features some of the new 2Crafty chipboard, the butterfly, circles and the journal plate.


This is your 2011

Features 2Crafty mini tag which are great for adding dates to your page.


School Concert - Week 50


Dream come true


The neutral colours in this collection make it so easy to put pages together, hopefully you now feel inspired to start creating. Thanks for popping in :)

52 Weeks - On the home stretch

I truly can not believe I have continued with this challenge for the whole year. I have a few pages to catch up on for December, but I think I have done pretty well.

Here are a few more pages to share with you.

A boring week - Week 43


Remembrance Day - Week 45


Magic Cave 2011 - Week 47


Your surprise visitor - Week 48


2Crafty pages to Share

This page was created using 2Crafty chipboard Jungle animals posted on the blog last week.
Love these animals! They were the perfect embellishments to add to the page.
I have used gel pens and Glossy Accents to jazz them up.

This was the last school excursion for the year and the kids had a ball.

Zoo Trip



This second page has been created using chipboard from the most recent mini release of 2Crafty chipboard.

This title was so perfect for an older photo I had waiting to be scrapped.

So many toys so little time.




I will have more chipboard goodness to share with you later in the week.

Savvy December Manufacturer Challenge

I have been a bit slack not to post this month's Savvy challenge, such a crazy time of year!

This month I have chosen Lily Bee Designs as the December manufacturer and your technique is really easy "Layering"

Lily Bee is featured in the recently released She's Savvy kit or you can use whatever stash you have at home.

Upload your layout to the correct gallery by December 31st to be eligible for some Savvy dollars.

Here is my take on the challenge also featuring my favourite chipboard alphas from 2Crafty

Family nearly all of us, but not quite



Happy scrapping!

November He's Savvy reveal

Have you seen the gorgeous kits released over at Scrapbook Savvy?

I have all three this month and can tell you first hand that they are awesome.
You really would not be disappointed with your purchase.

I have been lucky enough to create using the yummy He's Savvy kit that features October Afternoon Boarding Pass and some yummy Jillibean Soup papers, there are also the very cool Corrugated Alphas and a October Afternoon mist to use.

I had a blast creating on Friday night and found I had put together 3 pages very quickly. Always a sign of an amazing kit!

Red is your colour


Sisterly love


Your serious face


Hope these inspire you to crack your kit open and I am sure there will be more to come once I find a few spare minutes.

Savvy November Manufacturer Challenge

This month's manufacturer is one of my favourites and the name is part of a long running joke with my Mum. You know how there are some things you just can't get out of your head for days once you've heard them.
Well this company's name is my Mum's nemesis. ( Sorry Ma )

The manufacturer for November is Jillibean Soup and your criteria is to use at a Collage or Multiple Photos.

I've scrapped a page for my 52 week album using JBS Watemelon Gazpacho which is instore here
The papers had the perfect colours from our Scooby Doo adventure.

Savvy October Reveal - Happy Day

This month over at Scrapbook Savvy I was excited to be given the bright and cheerful collection 'Happy Day' by Simple Stories to create some layouts for inspiration.
Sar obviously knows me very well!!

I totally fell in love with this gorgeous collection, they really are a very clever company! The combination of border strips, journal cards, 4x6 and 6x12 patterns all within the 12x12 papers is fabulous and the sticker sheets that compliment the papers are just perfectly.
I highly recommend buying it all, you really won't need anything else.

The other amazing thing with this collection, although it is based around birthday celebrations, you can use it for many other pages without being restricted and it is very gender neutral.
But lets face it, we all have birthdays every year, so I don't think this collection could possibly go to waste. Hopefully you will find some inspiration from the pages I have made and I am sure there will be a few more to follow.

She's a big girl now


Happy Birthday Princess


Grandpa and Nicole
