A new venture and one lonely layout...

After a lot of thought and procrastination, I have started a new venture.... selling my scrappy creations. :) I used to sell on EBay quite some time ago but the market there severely dried up so I sadly stopped selling. But now, with the wonderful world of Facebook I have found a way to get the word out there and share my scrapping with others. Please pop by Scraplily Designs Custom Scrapbooks and have a look. I am amazed to have over 80 'fans' in just 4 days :D If my link doesn't work, I have added a little badge to the sidebar that will take you straight there.

So my personal scrapping has been a little slow again and I have just one layout to share. This is for the June challenge at Scrap The Girls Blog. My baby girl on her 4th birthday.......
 I used up some of one of the kits I have got from Scrapbooking From Scratch. Luv their kits to bits!!!

Paper: Bazzill, October Afternoon
Other: Scrapbooking From Scratch buttons, Prima flowers, Prima Flower Centres, American Crafts thickers, Basic Grey buttons, October Afternoon alphas, October Afternoon Cardstock Stickers

love the bright colours of these papers... so much fun to use and with soooo many possibilities!

 Well, really that is all I have to share for now. Better get back to my weekend with the family :)
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekends! See you soon 

Luv Kirsti xoxo

Ooops, I did it again!

 I am a terrible blogger! Almost a month between posts and I have hardly anything to show you! Life just gets busy every now and then and my scrapping is the first thing to suffer :(

Ok, so there are a few layouts I can share... nothing too spectacular though I'm afraid.

This first one was my final layout in the ScrapBoutique Postcards comp....
Bazzill Cardstock, Glimmer Mist, Kaiser Pearls, Prima Flowers, Crate Paper diecut, American Crafts thickers, Basic Grey rub-on, flower buds and crystal pin from The Stamp Spot

This cute layout is for the May Sketch Challenge at Challenge Heaven. I really need to make more time to get in the forum there with the girls. I always mean to but... well, you know how time 
gets away from you.
Papers: Bazzill Cardstock, Basic Gre
Other: Glimmer Mist, Basic Grey Cardstock Alphas, MME Lush alphas, Kaiser border punch

Ok, so this is for the June Ebony/Ivory challenge at Challenge Heaven. The criteria was to use either black or white with green. Not sure I am happy with this... well, to be honest, I'm not happy with it. Certainly doesn't look like it did in my head during planning stage that's for sure!
Paper: Basic Grey, K&Co
Other: Prima Flowers, American Crafts Thickers, Heidi Swapp flower, Kaiser Pearls, FTI felt, Kaiser rhinestones, paper doily

May also saw a few of my creations in print :D Scrapbook Creations picked up a digital layout some time ago that is very special to me and seeing it in print in Issue 78 was wonderful!

Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft commissioned a set of 3 cards from me also. Now... for those of you that might be interested I have donated them to an online charity auction for Fundraising Events for Barossa Relay For Life. Please, if you want to pick up these gorgeous cards and help charity at the same time pop by and place a bid starting 13th June. I would hate to see these cards go for a ridiculously low price - the higher they are bid, the more money goes to charity! So please spread the word :) Oh and I also have two premade scrapbook layouts up for grabs in the auction also.

My darling Rachelle is taking part in the MS Readathon for the second year in a row. I love how it encourages kids to read and also raise money for a worthwhile cause at the same time. I am taking donations/sponsorship now for her and would love if some of my wonderful friends could help. You will be issued with a tax receipt and any donation over $2 is tax deductible. Please contact me on for my details for cash, paypal or bank transfer options or you can sponsor online with a credit card at Rachelle's official MS Sponsor Page

Ok, so for someone with not much to share I sure have a decent sized post. heheh Now I am considering a RAK soon... stay tuned for my next post with details :D
