A Bumper post.......

Hi lovely blog readers!!!  I have a few things to share today......

Here is what I used:

Pearlz in Mint Julip
Spritz in Sapphire
Coloringz in Heidi Ho Blue and Ivy League

I used a MME woodgrain paper which fitted my picture perfectly.  Then just got messy and had super fun layering and putting this one together! Even used some old stamps I found:)

"They Have My Heart Forever"

I toned down the embellies on this and really went with the texture and misting:)


My quirky little man Kobi, he cracks me up and he's just so darn adorable!!  I loved making this and mixing bits and pieces together.  I have popped in some gold aswell and loved the effect of it with all of the other colours together!  I have used a bit of Hambly (so sad to see these guys close up shop), Crate Paper, OA and even a bit of Sass (wish they were still around too), lots of Shimmerz, touch of Prima and a MLBOW birdie pin....phew think that's it!!!


Little birdie on a nest:):)

Oh don't throw away those old spools from your twine.....must get myself some mini ones of cute!!!!


I have a new project for Pink Paislee which will be in their Declaration booklet going to print very soon.  In the booklet will showcase lots of different PP projects from the girls and their tutorials. 

So much fun making this!  Not colours I scrap alot of but there's that mint/aqua again:) 

"Adorable at 10 Months"

Lots of little details and my doodling came back to make an apperance:)

PARRRTYYYY!!!!  Pics:) 
Thought I would share a few pics from his party.  I went to alot of trouble for his decorations and party table.  All thanks to the ideas I got off Pinterest............
This wasn't exactly my plan.  I wanted it to be out in the garden hanging from the trees etc but of course the weather had other ideas for me and this was plan B to use Mason's curtain out of his room and use that as my backdrop under the pergola area!  It was super fun, Mase had a ball and the jumping castle was once again a hit:)

My table, lots of other things hanging up you can't see but you get the idea!

Just some closeups......Blue mnm's, Shaggy wreath (so simple to make lots of different materials, cut a circle from cardboard and start tying), paper straws.

Cupcakes with flags and hot air balloons:)

More cupcakes........

My little birthday boy, couldn't resist this cute pic!!!  Isn't he just kissable:)

The CAKE!!!!  Not bad for a first attempt..........

These were fun....Oreos!  I scrapped coloured icing over one side and then with white icing made a swirl.....super cute, fun and bright!!!

Cheeky rascals..........can you believe there is only 20 months between these 2, hehe, little Kobi, you are soooo tiny!!!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you......a bit stunned everyone singing to him.


Just a reminder about my class still going at Miss Arts.   I would love to see your creations if you have done the class.  Is anyone still working through it??  I would be more than happy to help if you need it, just let me know:)

Okay, I best get off here, I am crazy busy creating for CHA!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs and thanks for taking the time to visit:)

Prima DT Announcement

I am so thrilled and honoured to be apart of the Prima DT for another 12 month term.  The amazing team has been announced here along with some brilliant guest designers.  Congratulations to all those on the new team, it is such a dream come true once again for me......I loved every minute on the team last year and I know this year will be just as fantastic!!!!  Thankyou Prima x

So before we get stuck into new CHA goodies I thought I would share with you a layout from last CHA that slipped under the radar and was never shared!

Using the Songbird collection was once again perfect for the little man:)

"The Sweetest Thing"

I am a huge flower girl and the last release was just gorgeous (I actually really loved all of the grey and mint tones), the anticipation is killing me for the new release, knowing Prima it just gets better and better:) 

Banner, banner, I love a banner:):)

So happy once again to be working for Prima, looking forward to an exciting year ahead.
Hugs to you all xo

Pink Paislee pretties:)

Hi everyone, just a really quick post tonight of my layout that has just been shared over here on the blog :)  We don't celebrate Father's Day here until September but I was excited to scrap this picture of all of my boys anyways!!!

I used two collections here, Indigo Bleu and London Market:

"My Boys, My World" - pretty much sums it up


Thanks so much for the quick stop, I have to get to bed, a certain little boy has football tomorrow at 8am.....ick.....on a Saturday morning!!!  It's way too cold to get out of bed early too........
Back soon with more stuff to share,
Hugs x

My baby is 1 + Prima....warning photo overload!

I truly cannot believe it has been 12 months since this little man came into our lives! 

Mason turned 1 yesterday.  I only wish time would slow down, he has been the most brilliant baby, I honestly could have 10 of him.  He has been a wonderful sleeper and such a content, happy bubba.  Sometimes we forget he's around (not literally...hehe) he's such a good boy!  Now things may change over the next few months and into the toddler years (I am starting to sense a little tantrum coming on)but I am so grateful for a great, easy going, first 12 months with this adorable little guy.  He means the world to us and we all love him to pieces:)  So I got a little snap happy yesterday afternoon, it is way too long between photo shoots for me these days so I did go a little overboard and I think Mase was well and truly over it by the time I had finished!  I think he got over my silly noises and jumping around like a fruitloop by the end:)   I couldn't decide on any one favourite so I have picked a whole bunch!  Hope you don't mind!


His party is on Sunday, can't wait for it, it's going to be so much fun:)  I will share all the details and pics soon (oh yes, I love a bit of bunting)!!  Oh, yeah, check out my first attempt at the cake!!  And it tasted good too.....still not convinced yet that I won't stuff it up on Sunday though!  I have to do 2 cake mixes for that one....wish me luck:)


I have a few projects to share that I have created for Prima over the last few weeks.  The first one is a canvas Mixed media piece.  It's untitled but I think it tells it's own story anyway:)  This has a special place on our lounge room wall now..... 

I found sand in some of the shells we have collected and added this to the piece too.  I even collected some sticks from the backyard.

This layout was a scraplift of the fellow DT member Trina McClune.  For the month of May we all took turns at scraplifting another DT member.  This was such a fun project to create and I loved lifting Trina beautiful work.

"You're a Sweetie Pie"

My last layout today is the June BAP.   The very talented Heidi Kelley provided the sketch for this month and I just had to have a go at it!

I used the Fairy Belle background paper.  Plus that little fairy up the top sits perfectly into the layout don't you think?



Here is the awesome sketch, I hope you have a go!!

Okay, I better get off here, there are still loot bags and other things to organise for Sunday:)
Take care and hugs to you all,
Stace x
