Chef–2 Crafty

Playing with the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces from the Masterchef Set and the Butterfly Frames has allowed me to create this layout of my Eve Cooking Brownie Cookies… I have a confession that I did use a sketch from the Stuck! website and found inspiration in the layout Julie Winks created… even though mine doesn’t look anything like hers I like to give credit where credit is due…IMG_6173IMG_6174IMG_6175

a lil’ somethin’

This Saturday 28th May 19:30 AEST we are having a sale for our new release…which is sooo cute… yellow and black denim…

I have been playing with some of the a lil’ somethin’s we have made and here is a layout I whipped up…and I say that because it literally took me 35 minutes…which is unheard of for me …but everything was already coordinated so it came together really easily. IMG_6186

All the items on the page will be available on Saturday with exception of the banner as it is a variation of what we are selling…mine is made up of scraps. However other super cute banners will be on sale… IMG_6187IMG_6188IMG_6189

Check out or facebook page for previews of all the items for sale…

on my layout I have used: yellow tickets, polka dot cogs, yellow cord cogs, mixed flags, banner, ribbon, yellow hessian, kraft tag and mixed hearts… hope it has given you a little bit of inspiration on how to use a lil’ somethin’ on your pages.

Kraft It Up

Kraft It Up had requirements right up my street this month…no patterned paper…here is my take on the criteria …IMG_6176

2 Crafty

I have tried a little bit of whimsy on this layout…not sure if I like it but it gave me a fabulous opportunity to use these cute Chipboard pieces. Just realised I have already scrapped this photo…lol never do that.

On the layout the 2 Crafty chipboard featured are:

Hedgehogs, Mixed Leaves, ATC Picket Fence and Butterflies.IMG_6179IMG_6180

My New Venture

A lot of my scrappy friends already know that my sister Wendy and I have gone a little adventure and decided to make and sell ‘boy’ inspired embellishments. We have always thought that there has been a desperate lack in the market for BOY SPECIFIC scrapping goods.

Our first sale is on Saturday Night at 7.30pm…check our blog for more details

a lil’ somethin’

We are also having a little promotion on our Facebook page, LIKE our page to go into a random draw to win an embellishment pack.

2 Crafty

This year Ash lost his first tooth and it was quite an event in our house … got this fab photo and the 2 Crafty heart banner seemed to be the perfect addition to the layout… I inked the hearts in pinecone versa ink and then doodle around the edges … tied it off in blue paper twine…and mounted it with 3d tape.

I’ve been sewing

I have had a little ho!humness about scrapping the last couple of days so on Tuesday I decided to sew the kids some cushions…they wanted owls…so after a trip to spotlight with Mum I chose some fabric and made these…



last month I was the guest designer on Inspired Blueprints and as I was away for the reveal of my second sketch take I have not popped it up here yet… so #70 is here now…Susan Longman #70  (2)Susan Longman #70  (1)

Once Upon a Sketch

Here is my take on the Once upon a sketch challenge for this week… the other criteria is to use journal spots…which I have but I chose to use my dymo on top of them for the journaling.


So I have been making some new flowers …these are made with cardstock and an old paper punch I found when tidying up… will be seeing these a bit me thinks…IMG_6118
