Christmas with Alexandra Renke

Good morning how are you? Today I am sharing with you some Christmas cheer... if you are anything like me I dont tend to scrap Christmas photos around Christmas... I think my brain just cant handle scrapping photos till after it is over - its like a Christmas overload.... with all the festivities and traditions that you do during the month scrapping the Christmas photo isnt too high on the list...

But this layout has to be one of my favourite ones using multiple collections of Alexandra Renke papers, dies and stamps...... And I want to say its about 10 hrs worth of fussy cutting and construction that has gone into this layout- I know that seems like a lot but with such stunning papers it really is worth it!!!


This piece I entered in the Academy of Scrapbooking and Arts World Championship and I am happy to say I made the finalist and ended up with ranking Third in the World !!!!

Foodie wanna be - with Alexandra Renke

Hi long time no speak ? You probably noticed well hopefully you have .....its been a little quite on my blog recently well there has been a reason for that I was lucky enough to get two months off from all my amazing design teams to plan and do my wedding!!! I know right only has taken myself and DH 18 years to get to it but we have. Just something quite and special in our backyard and of course with some amazing family photos which is all I wanted......

Thank you to the amazing K Etherington Photography for awesome photos that it reflected the amazing day xxxxxx

So now that that explains my quite blog.... today I am here to share with you a layout using the amazing Kochen collection from Alexandra Renke.

I love this collection but soon realized I needed some amazing foodie photos but I do acknowledge that I am better at eating food than taking amazing photos and recipes so this is where I have teamed up with an amazing local food blogger Sprinkles and Sprouts....

And let me tell you once you go to her blog your mouth will be watering from the amazing range of recipes and photos !!!!

So stay tuned for some recipe cards and some foodie layouts after all it all about the things in life that we should scrap.

So watch out blogging and scrapping will be happening from now on as my break is over........

Enjoy the Sunshine .....

Good morning how are you? On the count down to the New Year, I must say I am not a fan of the gap between Christmas and New Year its sort of a limbo week, not really sure what day it is..... what we are meant to be doing ..... but I am keeping on with the blogging and the creating and catching up on my organising so I a ready to get my scrap on in the New Year....

Today I am sharing with you a new mixed media canvas I created in record time and I love how it has turned out .... and its for sale too.
