Limited Edition - Baby Layout

Over the years I've had so many requests for baby layouts, however because our subscribers are at different stages in their lives it's been the kind of layout that wouldn't suit everyone. The other thing of course is that I try and keep the monthly layouts as generic as possible so how do you choose whether to do pink or blue! It's just tricky.
SO with that in mind I've decided that from time to time I'll do a limited edition kit that won't form part of the normal subscription. These layouts will be available to anyone who wants to purchase them in the same format as Scrapkits layouts, however they will be more exclusive and I will only make up a limited number and when they're finished that's it!

This double page layout is R230 (incl P&P) & if you'd like to pre-order yours (either pink or blue) please email

I'm currently still working on the double page layout but here is a little sneak peek :)
{This layout would look gorgeous in a double frame in a nursery!}

A work in progress :)

Silly Season Bootcamp Photos

I've been wanting to post these photos for 2 weeks & can't believe how fast the time flies. 
I had 60 ladies attend the day which consisted of 2 workshops - a double page layout in the morning, and christmas inspired class for the second half of the day. Yummy food, great company and girls time to just have some time out and do what they want to do for THE ENTIRE DAY :)

MORNING CLASS - Fun can happen anywhere layout by Tracy Schimper
Layout details, the layout also included a booklet on the first page
Afternoon Class - Christmas Balls
Ideas for using the stamp set I designed which each lady received 
Some of the gift wrap idea samples I did

Me teaching, armed with my mic headset &
battery pack  (that kept pulling my trousers down *blush!)
I'm always to busy on the day to take photo's so my eldest daughter went
off with my camera - Our lunch rolls were delish with 4 various
Christmassy filling choices!

Scrapkits November Layouts

Here are my layouts for November. The kits were posted to all subscribers on 14th November but I still have a couple if anyone is interested. R390 for all 3 layouts, includes notes and all materials. Message me if you're interested :)


{Includes a folder booklet on page 1 and the navy section on page 2 opens up to include additional photos on the inside}

Nuturing a creative spirit

Sam is always wanting to get involved when I'm painting and crafting so when I found this old house shaped printers tray at a local thrift shop, I knew if would be the perfect thing to get her to do.
We brushed out the dust and luckily the little divider section just pulled out so that was a bonus and instead of painting the whole thing white, we were able to use some of my scrapbooking paper to line the background to create some interest. It was so lovely to see how intrigued she was with the whole process and she's definately got her mom's creative genes :)

French side tables

Some new painted furniture

Ok, so we had such fun last weekend painting, that we decided to go at it again :)
I bought a second hand headboard for R100 in plain pine and mixed the blue paint until I got the shade I liked. (painting in colour is a very bold move for me) I distressed it slightly back down to the white undercoat and in place to the bare wood. I figured that a design would look nice on the top, so I designed a vinyl decal using my silhouette cameo - I LOVE how it turned out and my little Samantha is stoked with her new bedhead :)

Side Tables Re-furbish

For awhile now I've been wanting to paint some of my furniture at home. I figured the little side tables in our lounge were long overdue for a makeover, and a small enough project for me to tackle over the weekend. I enlisted the help of Paige and Sam who were eager to learn how to use the orbital sander and paint away. I'm really happy with the end result, however these pics aren't that great as they were taken on my cell phone, but you get the idea... French typography image from Graphic Fairy

Easter cupcakes

I just had to share these cute little cupcakes my mom and girls made and decorated for Easter. The basket handles were a bit floppy, but that didn't stop them from going on. Samantha took the photo after she had added some props for her bedroom.... too cute <3
