Here are some of the wonderful new pretties that you will find inside:

Welcome to Project Life

Get ready for a scrapbooking revolution with Project Life! It helps busy people (so basically all of us) document life using photos and journaling in a quick, simple, and fabulous way. We’ve partnered with Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, to offer a complete line of elite products.

Becky explains, “It’s called Project LIFE because it’s about YOUR LIFE. Whatever your life is. Whatever your stage of life. Whatever your family circumstances. Whatever your lifestyle. Project Life is designed to help anyone and everyone get their pictures into a book.”  In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

Colour your world happy with the new Blendabilities!


Hostess Gift

It seems like forever since I shared a creation so I thought it was time to pop on and say hi with my latest hostess gift. This little box was made using the envelope punch board! Love this little item and I found this fantastic box buster tool to help you make custom made boxes any size you need.

Freshly Made Sketches 90 Sneak Peek

I am loving the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set and matching Modern Mosaic embossing folder (both available 2 July) so much that I just had to make another card using it today.  I struggled to get going today so to get my creative flow going I thought I’d try the latest sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  Here’s the sketch…
FMS Final 90-001And here is my card.

FMS 90 Mosiac Madness

Oh…and by the way…did I mention that there is also a matching punch (available 2 July)?  Told you I had awesome news.  Genuis…right!


  • Ink up the embossing folder with your trusty brayer before running trough the big shot.
  • On a piece of plastic or glass squeeze out some versamark refill.  Use your clean brayer to cover the piece of embossed card with the versamark.
  • Cover the piece with clear embossing power and melt the powder using your heat tool.
  • Spray the reverse side of the piece of card with a little water and crumple.

Sneak Peeks (all available from 2 July):

  • Mosaic Madness Stamp Set and matching Punch will be available as a bundle so you can save $$!
  • The matching Modern Mosaic Embossing folder adds versatility to the stamp set and punch so you get more bang for your buck.
  • Yummy new designer series paper stacks give projects a pop of colour and are on trend.  Love love love the new paper stacks.
  • We welcome Bermuda Bay to the Brights range.  Isn’t this colour delish?
