Another Bonus Clustered Frame

National Scrapbook Day is quickly approaching, and I am working as fast as I can to get a new kit out in time. I can't seem to find much design time this week, with lots of things still to be done in the new house!
This week is disappearing extremely fast. It is a short week because of the public holiday on Monday, then on Tuesday I spent ages at Ikea. Now they have no desks left because we bought them all!
Today I went with Matthew to a district school cross country event....and he came in 1st!!! Last year in the same event he got 3rd, so he was pretty happy!



Tomorrow I will be waiting for hours while our car gets serviced. Then Friday (April 30th) is the start of my NSD 40% off sale at Pickleberrypop and Gotta Pixel.

Here's a little peek at what's coming!

I have another bonus clustered frame made with my Strawberry Fields kit.

Sort of 'new' goodies....and Template 108

A whole week has passed since we moved into our new house and most of the essential stuff is finally unpacked. Some of the other stuff will have to wait so that I can have some scrapbooking time!
After many busy weeks, we are all looking forward to the Anzac Day long weekend with some sleep-ins! We are also going to make some time to discover the walking trails in our new area.

Today I put some 'new' designs into my shops. Firstly, for all those who asked about my Summer Romance mini kit which was in the Australian Scrapbook Memories February edition, it is now available at Pickleberrypop and Gotta Pixel.


You even get this bonus quickpage with the mini kit!


Next is a new pack of embossed papers...to co-ordinate with one of my favourite kits Forest Whispers.

Available at Pickleberrypop and Gotta Pixel.

And finally, my Anything Goes mini kit which was part of the Gotta Grab It promotion at Gotta Pixel is now also available at Pickleberrypop.



All 3 products are available at 30% off for a limited time.

Still doing P365? Here's another template for you. Have a great weekend.

MIA - Moving House

The last few days have been some of the busiest we have ever had. Every spare second was spent packing, moving house, cleaning and unpacking. One truck wasn't enough and they had to call for a second one.
Note to everyone.....de-clutter before moving, not after!

During the weekend we also had to drive our boys around to 8 soccer games....I'm not really sure how we found time to eat and sleep!

The first night in the new house was very eventful. I had told my boys that every house makes its own unique and different noises. Little did I know that at 11.30pm on the first night, we would experience an earthquake! It totally freaked us out!

Anyway, after four days I now have my computer set up and I am ready to find a little time for designing. The first thing I did was download heaps of photos that I took of our old empty house, and our new house before all the furniture and 150 boxes moved in! Now all we need is internet at home. Until it gets connected I have to visit the library and McDonalds to use theirs!

Here's a few photos from the weekend.

The furniture goes out....


....and goes in.



My boys built a wall of empty boxes!




Over the last few weeks I have used rolls and rolls of bubblewrap, so I thought I would make a couple of pieces of word art with it. Hope you like it!
Now if only I could get rid of the pile of the real stuff that we have piled in the garage!

Strawberry Fields Cluster

In and around packing up the house, I took a quick break to create this bonus clustered frame with my new Strawberry Fields kit. I won't be around on the internet for a few days because I will be busy unpacking, and because we won't actually have any internet. I hope it doesn't take too long to get it connected! I have heard stories where it can take several weeks!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend....see you in a few days!

Gotta Grab It at Gotta Pixel

I have a new mini kit at Gotta Pixel for their monthly Gotta Grab It event!
You can choose from over 20 products from many designers for only $1 each - each made from the same colour palette!

These are only available at the special price until April 13 - so be quick!


You can find mine here.

I don't have anything to share today because I have been very busy with family birthdays and packing up the house to move. It's also still school holidays and there has been lots of running around to the shops for school and sport supplies. At least I get driven around by the learner driver in the house!

Look out for a special post in a couple of days!

New for stamp collectors

My boys are a little crazy sometimes. When the weather is stinking hot in the height of summer, they don't swim until the evening when it's cooler......and now the temperature has dropped for autumn, they are swimming almost every day!

Designing time is hard to come by at the moment because we are getting ready to move house. Here's a little peak at the kit I was hoping to get out today, but will be out next week instead.


I did manage to get a few stamp frames and clusters finished....for those who are into stamp collecting!

Here's a bonus skinny stamp cluster for you. Have a great weekend!

A relaxing Easter break and Template 107

We had a very relaxing few days away over the Easter break.....now I need to get organised for the birthday party my DH and I are having this weekend. My boys are on school holidays for two weeks so I will have to set them to work in the kitchen or cleaning the house.

Here's one of my favourite photos from our weekend away. It was taken during a morning walk on Easter Sunday. The weather couldn't have been any nicer....it was perfect!


I have a new template for seven photos, so it would be great for anyone still doing P365.

Happy Easter Sale



I don't have anything new out this week, but FruitLoOp Sally does.....look at this cute Easter kit which is available at Pickleberrypop from April 1st.



This is what I came up with while playing with Egg Huntin.


It's April already, so this month's stamp cluster is out very early.
