Tim Holtz Australian Tour!!!!

Well Mr Tim Holtz is in Australia!!! yay!!!! I am going to a class he is teaching in Sydney, NSW, Australia on Sunday with my mum and she thought it would be fantastic to make and wear something outragous from Timmy products..., so mum (Ozegran) bought us a white apron each and this is what I came up with:- I will put a link to Ozegran's Apron when she has finished hers. I have 2 close up photos - the green blank frame is a place for Mr Tim Holtz himself to sign and the other close up photo is of 3 fragment charms - I had a Tim Holtz stamp that I wanted to use but it was too big so I split it up over 3 charms. I love love LOVE BRIGHT colours so this is totally me!!! Happy scrappin, Mandy xo

SS swap box Round 2

Hi everyone!

So Laurel ( ) hosted a second round of Secret Sister Swap Boxes. The first round seemed to come up so fast and I was a bit daunted by the 2 week deadline so I passed. As I watched the girls show what they received and had made for each other I was amazed at everything and it made me want to push myself out of my comfort zone and create some more. So when Laurel announced that there was going to be a 'Round 2' to I JUMPED at the opportunity to join in on the FUN!

My secret sister was Maria (

If you want to see the video of Maria opening the box I sent go here -

So before I posted Maria's goodies to her I took some photos - Here is a close up of what I sent to Maria

I had so much fun Maria, glad you loved it.

Love to all

Copic Colour Guide Book

Hi everyone!

I made a book inspired by my mum (ozegran - who was inspired by someone else whom I am sorry I cannot remember.

The binding I used was Laura Denisons 'Stack the Deck' binding on youtube.

On each page it has a white piece of cc designs cardstock so I can stamp an image and colour it with my copic markers. It also has a tag where I write the colours I used, so I can look back at it as a reference to what colour combos work well..., or not so well as the case may be *haha*

I have not finished the front of the book but hope to get that finished soon.

Hope you like it

Pregnancy Journal

Hi everyone!! Sorry it has been so long since my last post.

My childhood friend recently found out that she was pregnant after trying for just over 18 months, YAY. So happy for her and her husband.

So I got to thinking how a hand made journal would be so much nicer than a bought one. I got cracking on making one straight away! The book is A5. I didnt embellish the album much as I thought she could do that however she wished. She said to me earlier that she wanted the babies things to be green and white so I did the album in green.

I went online to a mummy website to get the 1-42 weeks pregnancy for mum and baby info and printed that out, so that was one section.

The first page of the book is a family tree, the next was a space for a photo of her the day she found out that she was pregnant then it went into the week-by-week pregnancy mummy and baby info. I also did pages like pregnancy sucks because... pregnancy is cool because... Who I first told, the basic things you would find in a pregnancy journal. I also did a section for baby bump photos. On the page it had a 4x6 photo mat with an oval punch down the bottom to write what week it was - I didnt write the weeks in as I wanted her to be able to start from whenever and also she could use them for various other photos. The book was bound by rings so she is easily able to rearrange things and use them for other uses not their intended use. I also did a section on baby shower photos and a journal section. On the first journal page was a note from me to her.

She absolutely loved the journal THANK GOD! I gave her flowers and other papers matching the journal so she can embellish whereever :)
