Freebie Friday – Mardi Gras [PixelScrapper March Blog Train]

It would seem that I somehow missed Christmas and the new year and skipped straight to March. So, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Valentine’s Day!

In my defence, it’s been crazy and, while technically the last two months just flew by, they’ve also been the longest of my life (at least since the last time I was pregnant, of course).

I’m now only 4 weeks away from meeting my tiny new baby (although my bets are closer to 3 weeks), and I have all the time in the world and so much to do and absolutely can’t be bothered doing any of it because I’m freaking huge, it’s ridiculously hot and humid, and I’m pretty sure this kid will grow up to be a gymnast.

So in between attempting to Marie Kondo my house and napping every half hour, I’m trying to build up a stash of scrap stuff to share and sell. No guarantees, of course, and I can’t say that I won’t disappear for a couple of months again, but I will try!

In the meantime, I’m getting into the groove with a paper pack for the March PixelScrapper blog train, Mardi Gras (go on and check out the other submissions; they’re gorgeous). I just love the colour scheme and couldn’t resist all those jewelled tones. The pack comes with 7 solids, 7 shimmery foils and 15 abstract geometric patterns.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Retro Holly Jolly [PixelScrapper December Blog Train]

We’re almost there!

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. It’s a crazy, stressful, chaotic time – but boy, is it fun!

The tree is decorated, the presents are haphazardly piled up and waiting to be wrapped (I’ll get to it eventually), and my kids are pretty sick of hearing “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)” fifty times a day.

It’s also hot, humid and gross – perfect Aussie Christmas weather!

And it wouldn’t be a celebration without the Pixel Scrapper December blog train! It’s an amazing collection this year, and my contribution is a cute little mini kit, with a few extras to follow in the weeks up til Christmas.

Happy holidays!

Freebie Friday – Kids Ahead [PixelScrapper August Blog Train]

I have two boys, so the last five years have been absolutely full of all shades of blue. With maybe a bit of green, a splash of red and a whole heap of denim (mostly with holes).

So it was with great pleasure that I focused on PINK, PINK AND MORE PINK for my contribution to this month’s Pixel Scrapper blog train. I’ve been reassured that nobody has gone blind from the brightness, but I offer no guarantees for your retinas. There is a whole lot of pink and it’ll knock your socks off.

Freebie Friday – Oh! The Places You’ll Go [PixelScrapper June Blog Train]

It’s June. Almost halfway through the year. Anyone else blown away with how quick the last five months have gone? I certainly am.

This month’s Pixel Scrapper blog train is Oh! The Places You’ll Go. So let us reflect on the first half of 2018 speeding by – and all we can accomplish in the months to come!

Today is your day – so hop to it and happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Flower Power [PixelScrapper May Blog Train]

You know, I thought that having my kids at preschool and kindy would make my life easier and allow me to get things done. Boy, was I deluded. I’ve been wildly off my feet with all sorts of exciting activities; I don’t even know which was is up anymore, or what day it is or what the heck I’m supposed to be doing right now. (Shopping maybe? Shopping sounds fun.)

So I chilled out in that spare five seconds I’ve had this month and made some vintage-y flower journal cards. Hope you like them and find them useful. Click on the image below to start your download.

You can check out the Pixel Scrapper forums for some gorgeous and amazing flowery goodness.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – A Mug & A Book [PixelScrapper April Blog Train]

It’s not quite April but here’s my contribution anyway!

Despite my ridiculously obsessive love of books, I feel that this month’s offering is a bit underwhelming, and I am sorry! But I’ve been feeling a bit funky lately.

Maybe it’s the weather? (Is it summer? Is it autumn? Will it rain today or will we have another heatwave – or both? Who knows?!)

Anyway, click on the image to download this teensy little kit.

Happy scrapping!
