The final wedding canvases


With Isabella at School for her first day and Sophia down for a sleep I was initially unsure what to do with myself. It didn’t take me long to figure it out and I finished these canvases in no time! I now have a lovely collection of 3 hanging in our lounge. Our walls are very bare so this makes a nice change!



This is the canvas I posted a couple of weeks ago so now have the set of three.

Two Sisters


I have now finished the other layout that I promised to show you, using the sweet as sweet Spring Fling Taste of Pesto Kit. Love the crochet flowers. Ann you will be so proud of me – I have put beads on this one. That’s two out of three with a touch of Ann. I haven’t forgotten the tag Leila (and everyone else who is joining us), just thought I would show you this first. Also soon to come, well kinda soon … is my scrap room makeover. On a tight budget… did I just say tight, I meant Very Tight Budget. ‘Cos I want to go to the Crafting Connection in Wellington. Who else is coming?



Love yourself from the inside out.

Shervonne’s Birthday


Hi everyone,

Kelly Slattery, from our design team, picked up an October Deluxe kit at Scrap Pink, and has kindly shared the following layout with us:


The pink spotted paper through the middle is from the June Free Spirit collection (Fancy Pants Kewl Splendid), and the other papers are from the “On the Periphery” October kit.

Kelly credits Ali Russel for the sketch, but I love how she’s made all the different elements and paper combinations work together. Perfectly balanced and beautiful.

Design Team layouts for October’s Deluxe kit-On the Periphery. Hannah Blair.


Hi everyone,

Hannah sent through her design team work this afternoon and I was totally blown away. Some of the papers in this kit are quite challenging but Hannah has taken them on with confidence and thoroughly conquered Basic Grey! She should be on their payroll!

I am sure you will agree with me when you see the following:






There will be instructions up in the classroom for ‘Learn as you Play’ soon.

Have a great weekend everyone!

xx Kate, Steph and Fi.

Another Spring Fling.


I have managed to get one layout done so far with one sick child and one very demanding one! More to come soon – I love this kit, it is so sweet and all the elements blend so nicely together. Go here to purchase yours, and because it is the last Taste of Pesto Kit we are offering 1/3 off on this and all Previous Taste of Pesto kits! So now there is no excuse, and if you buy a Deluxe and a Taste we will put the two kits together in the one box, saving you on postage.

xx Kate
