Mixed media fun

Hello all. hope all is going well at your place today.  It’s extremely windy here so my photos have been taken inside today.  I have been playing a lot lately with mixed media products and Memory Maze is a must have on the table to complement my projects.

This layout is inspired by a class that I took with Limor  Webber,  amazing tutor and some very fun and funky techniques.  I have used the Memory Maze Arrows to frame my photo.  I have dressed the Memory Maze with Lindy’s Gang sprays to give them colour.

My Second project I created was some cards,  I love how Memory Maze have the perfect wee chippie just the right size for any project.  Here I have used an assortment of Memory Maze pieces left over from other projects.  A great way to use all those extra bits.

This was a fun wee project to create on a COLD winter night in front of the fire.  I have embossed the entire wooden box and then used sprays to fill in the negative space, love this effect.


I have decorated the top with a number of the lovely flowers you can now get through Memory Maze and an assortment of their cogs which have been lightly misted.

Christmas pocket page layouts

I am new to pocket pages and are finding my way around them,   I love the idea behind them to share all the photos I take threw out the year.  As you could imagine I take a lot of photos and for many years they just sit in big piles.  So my mission this past year has been to scrap them.  It’s a completely different style to what I am used to but I am sure I will find my feet.

Well I hope you enjoyed my share today and I have inspired you to get your crafty products out and have some fun.  Happy Scrappin every one xox Donna

It’s the little things…….

Hello everyone,  this month I thought I would try to get a challenge in.  I scanned a couple of sites and tried to set a goal to at least complete one.  Its been a while since I joined in and I miss doing them.  Well last night I realised that today is the 30th and I still have not done one,  So once the kiddlets went to bed I thought I would give it a shot.

Flourish with a bling was having a quote challenge, and I knew I had just the right photos for this.   New Zealand Paper Chase was having a stamping and sketch challenge which you could choose to use the sketch or not.  I thought  ummm I could combine but it did not end up that way…  no stamping on my layout!(crazy for me)  But I did love Sonya’s sketch which you can find here and it inspired this layout.


I really enjoyed making this,  it’s so different from what i normally do and it will actually fit into Ruby’s album.


Close ups of the “little details”


We were making cup cakes


One of my most fav tech’s to do at the moment!  Adding foil to projects 🙂


And because I did no stamping I made a card to enter which I will go live on the 6th September for Memory Maze Chipboard!  I made my own stamps, so tune in next week to see how I did it.


That’s all from me today,  Happy Scrappin everyone xox Donna.

Playing at home ,  think I like these stamps and deff love the saying.  Thanks Annette for letting me play with your num num stamps.Image
I had a go at making some She Art,  this is very addictive and lots of fun adding different textures and layers.  I have used WOW Fab foils on these.





These three were my first ones and they have found an awesome home on my daughter’s wall.
My final project for Flourish with a Bling.  I had to do something about me.
