Sketch Fun

Hi all,

Rather than do the housework today I thought I would play in my craft room. I decided to have a go at Let's Get Sketchy's mid March sketch.

I stayed fairly true to the sketch although I added some extras. I used mainly the Love Always range from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and this is what I created:

Well that's it for now.
Take care and happy crafting,

YouTube Time!

Hi all,

One of my goals this year was to make more videos than last year for my YouTube channel. Well this week I added 2 making this year's videos to 4 thus I have already achieved this goal!

The first video is a card video. I went to my friend's house last week with my new stamps that I had ordered from Unity Stamps and Pascale and I decided to use the same stamp and make a video. The stamp we used is: Birthday Treat and it is actually on special this weekend.

Pascale's card video can be found on her YouTube channel Pascale Card

Here is my video:

The second video I uploaded is this month's instalment for "Challenge Your Stash" a YouTube hop group I belong to. This month we had to use a recipe to make our layout.

The finished layout:

The video:

I hope you enjoy them. Well that's it for now.
Happy crafting,

Latest Projects

Hi all,

Well the group of ladies that have asked me to make them each a canvas for their 50th birthdays had their 3rd celebration last week. This time the birthday girl's favourite colour was blue so this is the version of the canvas that I created for her:
 I have a few months before the next canvas needs to be ready!

Here is my latest scrapbook page that I made using some of my supplies that I bought from Hip Kit Club. It also involved some mixed media on the background and a few bits and pieces from my stash.

I just received a few deliveries of new products and some stamps from Unity Stamps so luckily there will be a long weekend here in WA this weekend as I can't wait to play.

That's all for now, take care and happy crafting!
love Helen

Canvas Number 2

Hi all (2nd time tonight!),

Well the second birthday of the 50th club has rolled around and my second variation of the 5 poppies canvas was this:

There was also a quote added after this photo was taken that said: Best Friends are the ones who are there: whenever; wherever; however and most importantly: forever.

The third birthday is in 3 days time so I need to get started asap! Then I have a break until June!

Well that's it for tonight, really is this time!

Take care and happy crafting,

Stuck?! Sketches February Sketch

Hi all,

I've spent my Saturday night watching videos and scrapping. I used the latest sketch from Stuck?! Sketches -

and a photo of my son and I just before his Year 12 ball. Well at least I got a photo of Ben all dressed up! Sam didn't want to go so he stayed home with me and spent the night talking playing computer games and talking to his mate over the computer. Anyway here is the page:

Sorry photo has a bit of glare on it, that's what happens when you take it at 10:30 at night under your desk lamps!

Well that's it for tonight.
Take care and happy crafting,

Challenge Your Stash

Hi all,

I've teamed up with a few girls from around the world and we have called ourselves "Challenge Your Stash" and our first YouTube hope went live today. We all used a sketch from Creative Scrappers and drew our inspiration from it. This is the sketch:

and this is the page I created:

I used mainly my supplies from Simple Stories  So Fancy range and 3 silly photos of me!

Here is a link to my video:

I hope you enjoy it and all the other videos in the hop. These are the links to them all:
