It's all about CUPCAKES

 Kia Ora (hello) and Happy 2015 everyone!

 In keeping with the brightness of Summer – Scrapping Outback’s January ‘white with a twist’ challenge cocktail colours are Raspberry and Lime. Not exactly my usual colour combo but I fell in love with them after creating the first LO...
Plus... It's coincidental that both these LO's are for January White with a Twist challenge over at Scrapping Outback... 

 First up : SMILE (and the world smiles with you) this photo is of my older granddaughter on her 5th birthday. Actually she's nearly 11 now, and I’ve had this photo in my pile of “to do’s” since.

The gorgeous handmade zipper flower was created by the lovely Jeanelle at TLC crafts and this raspberry one was obviously ‘meant to be’ for this LO.

Supplies used:
Claudine Hellmuth Gesso; Couture Creations double sided tape & 3Dfoam dots; Kaiser printed tape (music); Kaiser rhinestones (dark pink); VersaColor ink (charcoal & magenta) ; Lindy’s Stamp Gang Flat Fabio (Hibiscus rose & Toto’s tornado black); Glimmer Mist (Key lime pie); Manor House Creations flowers; Scrap FX c/b (Smile and the world smiles with you); WOW c/b (music flourish); Mont Marte modelling paste; Tim Holtz mask; Zipper flower; Cupcake dies; Papermania tissue paper (Madame Payraud’s); Helmar quick dry adhesive 450; Perfect pearls mists (interference red);  


Christmas Cupcakes 2009 - These delicious and beautifully decorated cupcakes were baked by my (now) daughter-in- law for our Christmas lunch in 2009. 

 I've wanted to scrap these photos for a long time - and guess I must have been eager because I've printed the photos at least 3 times lol. You will see that I've fussy cut and inked the cupcakes individually - then used foam dots to 3D.
Supplies used:

I hope you're all having a fabulous New Year - it's gonna be a GREAT year and so many more photos and challenges :)

So, till next time....Hearts 'n' Hugs xxx Mazz xxx

Dream BIG Shyla xxx

Gidday all, today I'm sharing my LO created for the Scrapping Outback December White with a Twist challenge...for those of you who know me well, you will already be aware that ORANGE is my favourite colour - because of the symbolism of compassion - and that's why I was so happy to use these colours for the challenge.
The beautiful young lady in the LO is my younger grand daughter and although it's a black & white photo it actually matches her own 'orange' hair.  
I designed the colour patterns and splashes of bling as representation of Shyla's vivacious personality to boot. I simply covered the clear bling with coloured 'sharpie' pens to match the Lindy's Stamp Gang mists.
Update 1/12/14...Shyla is in hospital in Auckland with an infection in her foot. This is the 3rd or 4th infection and time she's had to have an anti-biotic drip in hospital in the last year.
She's the bravest little girl and we're all wishing her the best and praying for her speedy recovery  Nana x

Here's this month's inspirational prompt and the criteria is the usual:
"You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture."
Supplies used:

Well, until next time, many hearts 'n' hugs xxx Mazz xxx
p.s. the awesome photos of Shyla were all taken by her Dad (aka my ds!)

Scrapping Outback's November 2014 white with a twist challenge

Hi all, happy November!!!

My apologies for this late post – I’m pretty full-on atm with study, work (both paid and unpaid).
When mulling over what to create for November’s ‘white with a twist’ challenge for Scrapping Outback DT,  I decided to ‘play’ with the triple canvases because I wanted to be thinking about places that I feel ‘happy’... I’m delighted with the results since now dlh and I have a ‘little piece of our paradise’ in our lounge room every day :)
FYI I’ve used the Manor House black oval frames as flourishes under the clusters and the little wooden animal embellishments are actually wine glass charms from a souvenir shop called The Woodcraft Gallery :)
Supplies used:
3x 8”x8” stretched canvases

Tissues (yes this all started with tissues!!!)
Modge Podge
Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso & multi-medium (matte)
MonteMarte modelling paste
The Crafter’s Workshop Masks

 Distress crackle paint (broken china) & distress stain (frayed burlap)

 7 Dots Studio paper (Dreamer collection city lights); Petaloo faux dried berry clusters; Manor House Creations flowers & black oval frames; Washi Tapes ; Texture edges stamp;
Perfect Pearls Mists (blue raspberry); Bo Bunny (Gabrielle alphas & Country Garden pps);
oh! I nearly forgot to add the WHOLE pic - saved the best for last LOL

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
