Project Life New Kits!

Hi everyone!

I have a little venture happening soon, where I will be opening a small online store with project life goodies. I will also be stocking other lovely products including Evalicious and Freckled Fawn.

What is project life?

Project Life is the brainchild of Becky Higgins. It is designed to get your memories and stories in albums for your families to look back on and enjoy for years to come. You don't need to be a fancy scrapbooker, you can make it as simple or as creative as you want. Check out this video from Becky here.

 With so many gorgeous new card collections, it can be hard to decide on which to buy. So I am offering to Australian and New Zealand scrapbookers the opportunity to purchase a sampler kit of the 5 most popular editions. These editions won't reach our stores until May but I am going to preorder them so we will be the first to receive them!

Check out the Spring catalogue here to take a peek at these delicious designs.

If you are interested, I will be ordering the full kits and making up sampler kits for $33 AUD (plus shipping of $12 to Aus in a satchel). Email me  (click on my profile in the sidebar to find my email address)  for more details as I am also going to stock the page protectors and other goodies in my store.

In addition to this catalogue eye candy, come and have a look at my Project Life board on Pinterest, full of inspiration and prinatbles that I have collected from all over the internet. The link is here.

Cheers, Mel

P.S. Some of you may know that I live in the badly flood affected town of Bundaberg QLD, and just to let you know that my family home is okay, but my kids school and husbands work was underwater. In the short time I have been living in Bundaberg (12 months) I have met so many amazing people with a great Aussie spirit. We are all pulling together and bit by bit Bundaberg will be rebuilt.

Love that Hair!

Hi everyone :)

A wet day here in Queensland. A lovely day to sit in my studio and scrapbook. Unfortunately to be able to own said studio, I need to be at work :(. But its a looong weekend for me as of Saturday. Oh Yaaah!

In my last post I shared some sneaks of a class which is coming soon to Kim Archer's Etzcetera site. That took up a lot of my time, and I can't show you more because it's secret squirrel ;)

But, I do have a bit of a flashback photo of my son from about 3 years ago. I was flicking through some photos and cataloging them and I giggled at his Edward Cullen hair in these photos.

Similar to my Beach Cricket layout, (I even used some of the leftover arrow scraps) but unique enough to not be seen as scraplifting myself I think!

I hope that the Aussie readers enjoy a long Australia Day weekend (i'll be listening to the Triple J Hottest 100 with drink in hand!).

Cheers, Mel

A little bit of inspiration coming your way...

We have been busy behind the scenes for Kim Archer... for a class on the Etzcetera site.

Kim and the girls have been making inspiring classes and samples for a few years now. This one will be a cracker too.

Here is a sneak of my samples for the class:

See you soon!

We are all moved in!!

Hello. I'm coming to you from my new house. No more scrubbing and packing. Done. Now to sort out my scraproom.

Before I moved I scrapped a page of beach cricket from Christmas day. It's one of my favourite photos and layouts. I used inspiration from Maggie Holmes' december daily album, with the chevron arrows.

I loved using my scraps for this one. See those teal blue letters? I am in love! Amy Tan baxter stickers. Get me 20 packs!!

Hope you are all enjoying your summer and your beach cricket...
