Applesauce and School Memories...

It's that time of year again, isn't it? The pencilcases are packed, the new lunch boxes are chock full of goodies and the mums shed tears at the school gate as they wave goodbye to their
little ones.......
Of course, the start of the school year is one of the best times to start scrapping pages - all those perfectly cute smiles and little backpacks.
Here's a shot of my tribe as my eldest two sons get ready for their first day of school this year.
To show off these photos I wanted something bright and funky, and the Upsy Daisy range "APPLESAUCE" was the perfect choice.
Full of energy and dynamic design, the "Applesauce" range exudes colour and excitement into your school LO or OTP.
And better still, the "Applesauce" range is on sale this week as we make way for even more wonderful Upsy Daisy Designs to stock the shelves. So go ahead and click HERE to take you to the Upsy Daisy Designs site where you will see some fabulous bargains on some of the ranges of scrapping paper.

Also, don't forget our wonderful HALLOWEEN COMPETITION ! Check out the details on the Upsy Daisy Website and enter to win!

Have fun and happy scrapping!

Gotta Go Back

Back to school that is. Last week, I officially became a mom of a 7th grader. I can't believe just how quickly time flies.

I used the papers from the Vroom line. It's such a great line for boys. I love the way the black & white photo really stands out here. For a fun touch, I cut out the circles from the Vroom Vroom paper to make photo corners.

It's almost that time....

It's almost time to start thinking about back to school!! A big change in my household this fall, my youngest dd is heading to high school - ack! Although she is more than ready, I don't know if I am! I used the adorable "Tweet" collection for this layout, I just love the contemporary colour scheme and fun patterns! Are your kids starting to get ready to head back? Have you done your back to school shopping yet?? Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

Inchie Card

Inchies are a wonderful way to use up your little scraps and they look really fun on a card or tag :)
Inchies are a 1 inch by 1 inch collage! They are perfect for little embellishments or the cute little cupcakes that are found on the *tear off* portion of the cupcake line!

To create the little card...

1. Trim a portion of the "Sweet" paper to 5 3/4" X 4". Cut scallops in the bottom area and punch holes. Fold in half horizontally.

2. Using "Scrumptious", cut 3, 1" squares and then using "Sprinkles" cut 3, 3/4" squares. Ink the edges if desired and attach the "Sprinkles" squares to the "Scrumptious" squares.

3. Cut out three of the little cupcakes found at the bottom *tear off* portion of the Cupcake line. Using popdots attach them the centre of your *Inchie*.

4. Attach Inchies to the front of your card. Tie a ribbon around the top and for fun add a little safety pin with some beads added (a friendship pin ♥)

Have a wonderful day!
