To inspire you – Thank You Jane!

Jane continues to inspire us with some more lovely layouts.

At this time of the year with all the winter ills doesn’t this one make you wish you were there!


This wee cutie has her hands rather full. All of  those purple flowers make me think – tropical island, summers day…….need to stop dreaming.  It is still winter! 
I love the use of the Flower Soft.

If fish could talk!!

You add so much colour to my life!
It is my fault that the bottom of this next double layout is cut short! Tried to make them even but…….you get the idea.
I am sure I can see the sun shining in these photos as well. Oh well – only two more months and it is SPRING!!!
I love the use of the butterflies on this page Jane and your subject peeping out from behind the giant pumpkin – such a cutie!! 


 Thank you for sharing your layouts and your Taonga with us – treasures indeed these little ones!

Looking for Fairies and more! – Layouts from Jane

It is so good to see all the creative juices flowing freely in NZ. I continue to be amazed at all the wonderful ways people put their layouts together, their colour choices and their design. Give two people the tools, the photos, the papers and embellishments and they will turn out something unique to them.

Jane is a new contributor and I am thrilled that she has agreed that we can show case her cards and layouts as well. Over the next few days I will give you a taste of Jane’s creativity.

Delightful subjects make delightful photos. Put those together with creativity and you see the results!

Just Because I Love You

It is wonderful when I get to share contributions from my customers and friends. Apart from it saving me having to dream up ideas, you get to see other contributors ideas and a variety of styles. As you can tell I am a big fan of Karyn’s work and these latest layouts are no exception. Take a look.

Just Because..........


I Love You!

I need Karyn to remind me of the Paper stack these background pages came from.
Thanks again for your contribution Karyn.

Beautiful Layouts!

Well Karyn has done it again!

I love her choice of backgrounds on these pages that were taking from a Ciao Bella DCWV stack. They suit the photos so well and show that even if you are new to scrapbooking, a lovely background page, your matted photo and just one or two extra embellishments if you want and hey you have an awesome keepsake page to hand on to future generations.




Now these photos are just so amazing!

Thank you for sharing these Karyn.

Auntie`s Treasure – Scrapbooking Layout

Check out this beautiful double layout created by Karyn. Cuddles are so precious, you have to grab them when you can because the little ones grow up too quick.  Capturing the moment is so important and scrapbooking the memories, well we all get to enjoy that don`t we!  

Awesome layout as usual Karyn. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Best Pals Layout

Karyn just knows how to capture the moment when she has her camera at hand. I love to see how she then scrapbooks the photos. Just look at these two beautiful children.

Best Pals!

The colour choices with the photos, Green Tea DCWV paper and the chromatics mats just all work together so well.
One of the reasons I love looking at Karyn`s work is that her style changes to meet the theme: clean and sharp or elegant and lacy, old world vintage, fun and  cute!
Thanks for sharing your lovely creations with us Karyn.
Check out other paper stacks
and the Chromatics range of cardstock
Ok … Karyn tells me she didn`t take the photos this time but that`s ok regarding my comment above as I have seen others she has taken and she really does know how to capture the moment!

Layout – A Day to Remember

This beautiful layout was created by Debbie from Christchurch. Debbie has used some of the Bella! range of papers and followed a layout sketch Jan/Feb  from the Fynmark BLOG.

Isn`t this just lovely!

A Day to Remember

Debbie says “I hand made the rosettes by punching a circle then cutting a swirl out of it. Next I curled it around tightly then let it go to unswirl loosely. After that I hot glue gunned the rosette to a smaller punched circle as a base and flattened it with my hand a bit. Love doing flower embellishments that way.“ Take a look at a close up view.
