Card In A Box card

Heres another card in a box - rectangular this time . I bought this kit from a papercraft show- its a Stampin up kit. I got it from the very lovely Teena Pillar there who is a Stampin up consultant.
I love all the colours- I got 2. I will keep one for my craft workshop next month :D

Bendi card

Heres my Bendi card for my card challenge group. It had to have birds and butterflies on it and some pearls. I love this paper- its Fly Free by Kaisercraft. The green and pink look so effective together I think. I also used the bird punch from Stampin up.

I have been into family research for many years and have found out some very interesting facts and secrets while doing so. This has now crept into my scrapbooking with these beautiful old photos of family. This is a pic of my Great Grandfather Henry T Deakin- born 1868. He was a farrier but then enlisted at the age of 46. I have yet to discover just what he did in the war but there has been talk of him riding horses, so that could be an interesting search. 
This page was from the Creative Kit club- I love the wooden background, really sets the scene.

You are 10!!!!

This is the latest creation but the event happened a couple of years ago. My littlleun is now 12. I tried to follow the colours of green and orange in the pics. I think it captures the craziness of the day with all his mates. I have used many different papers and embellishments.

This isnt an original- I found the page on the net and copied it- I think it has slightly different embellishments though.

Port Douglas raft lol

This page was created for a challenge- background stamping. I think Ive got that covered. I love the papers which are a mix between Kaszazz and Kaisercraft and a few others that Ive had for ages. I loved the ripped paper as it feels beachy to me. I found the perfect accents of course with the `Keep palm and Carry on` lol

Octagon cosmetic gift box

Heres another octagon box that Ive made for a friend in the UK. I hope it arrives ok. Ill have to wrap it up really well. I hope she likes it- its for her birthday.

More Sydney

Heres another few pics of Sydney. We all loved it so much there.
For this layout I used Kaisercrafts `Just Landed` collection. I love all the colours on this page. Ive used red glitter washi tape as a border and have inserted bits throughout the page. I really like the red- red is one of my favourite colours :D

Halloween? yeah I know its January

Hehe yes its January. I am trying to catch up with my pages as you can see.
This one has been waiting a loooonnnng time. I had these images cut out from an old magazine ages ago and just found them, so before I lost them again I did this layout. Its a bit of fun

Dame Edna

Heres a really fun layout. I loved doing this one. Again with my obsession of using up scraps, I used up lots of strips on the heart shape. I also dug out alot of my old rub ons ( cant stand rub ons) and got rid of some of them. I have made this for my girls workshop  and also for an online challenge.

Octagon explosion gift box

This is a octagon explosion box. I found this on the wonderful Pinterest. I love this idea. I owed a gift to a dear friend of mine for spoiling me over the Xmas period. She is a crafter like me and so I wanted to give her a little hamper like box as a Thank you. I think I might have made the top a bit big as it isnt a neat fit but other than that Im quite happy with it.
Gonna make a bigger one with toiletries in it for a friends birthday
