Freebie Friday – Fall In Love [PixelScrapper November Blog Train]

It’s that time of the month again! The Pixel Scrapper blog train is live and chugging along.

I really enjoyed working with this colour scheme. I like the beautiful muted browns and orange autumn colours (yes, autumn, not fall, you heathens) but I don’t get to work with them often enough. I’m more of a blue, pink and purple kinda gal.

I had a lot of fun making the bunting and the cute little fabric hearts. Aren’t they cute?! And the flowery papers are lovely, although I find making aesthetically pleasing patterned papers with realistic flowers quite difficult. Do it wrong, and they just feel cluttered and weird. You’ve got to find the right mix of flowers, set them out in a way that doesn’t look cluttered or blergh, and then, if you’re me, you have to change the colours to match your palette because you forgot to do that in the first place.

(Dear Santa, for Christmas, I’d appreciate the return of my brain, kthx.)

Happy scrapping.

Freebie Friday – Sunflower

We’re well in the middle of spring down here. The transitory rains seem to be over (aside from one midweek rainstorm that came out of nowhere and didn’t seem to impact on the temperature much), and the sun is shining beautifully.

It’s the calm before the storm, so to speak. Only a few weeks of glorious spring sunshine before summer starts to creep up on us. Then begin the road-melting, foot-cooking sand, and dashboard egg-frying temperatures.

That’s summer down under.

This week I have a lovely pack of sunflower inspired patterned papers. And a few sunny gold tones to round it out.

Happy scrapping!

Freebie Friday – Pencil Deco

So, my eldest turns 7 today. Yikes.

I still remember how tiny he was. And how brief his wake/sleep cycle was – 1.5 hours for the first six weeks. Yikes again.

We survived the sleepless nights and toddler tantrums, not to mention the smart-arse preschool years, and now he’s a gorgeous, clever and cheeky seven year old.

But now I’m feeling old, so have a couple of art deco inspired patterned papers for your scrapping needs.

Happy birthday to my beautiful boy, and happy scrapping to everyone else 🙂
