Just sneaking another one in....

Hi everyone.

Just sneaking by to post my last layout using this month's kit!

Another layout of Miss Maya!
I have used the "studio calico" vellum frames behind my photo and cut the title from the patterned paper! Too easy!! Lots of texture paste and stamping and various strips of the stunning papers in the kit!

Here is a gorgeous flair.....so sweet!!! And the gorgeous little flower stem mixed with some sequins and "studio calico" stickers. LOVE these sequins!!! I used a star punch too to cut some smaller stars from the aqua glitter trim.

Can't wait for next month's kit now! See you then, Eb x

Guest Designer Share March - Leeann Pearce

with Leeann Pearce


APOCD kit lovers I hope you are creating up a storm with the March kit. So after my second page I had mega tiny scraps on my desk and thought that I would whip up a page using them. Of course I had to add some extra white cardstock in as I had already used that. This page was just go with the flow, freestyle loving. So now that I have shared this with you why not do this after your next page and see what you come up with.


Close up details: 

Cheers Leeann Pearce :) :) :)

March Guest Designer Share with Leeann Pearce

Hello APOCD kit lovers…. 

I’m back with another fabulous page created from the March kit. This time I am sharing a collage type page as this is what I love to do when I am down to my last scraps. But this page is NOT actually made from the last scraps. It’s just that there where certain papers that I was so in love with and I wanted to use them all at once straight away. So I decide on this type of page. The main inspiration came from AC Dear Lizzy this and that pattern paper.

Close ups:

Thanks so much and I hope that you are inspire to create you next page collage style.

Kit yumminess!!!

Well hi there!
I'm back to share a couple of layouts created with this months gorgeous kit!!!
I just loved the mix of colours and embellies in this!

Here is a photo of Maya taken on her last day of kinder with her closest group of gorgeous little friends! they became such great friends and I love this photo!

 Have used the kraft cardstock as background with a bit of masking. I LOVED the "studio calico" stickers and of course a "Cherry flair" !!!!
I pulled out some old making memories rub ons to create my title as I really needed black!
  I totally love the look of these raw wooden veneer arrows by "Studio Calico". They provide an easy way to highlight a photo!

This one is about Maya's absolute love of Lalaloopsy dolls!!! she turns our rumpus room into a Lalaloopsy town!

Really love this Maggie Holmes script paper!!!! Lots of paint and torn strips plus the sweet little sequins in the kit!!!

Another close up of yet another totally awesome "cherry flair".......

I hope you are enjoying this kit too!!! Don't forget to share with us your creations!

March Guest Designer Share - Leeann Pearce

With Leeann Pearce

Hello there… 

Just wanted to share with you my first page using the APOCD March kit. I took my inspiration from the colour vellum Polaroid frames… seriously love these! 

Close ups of the stitching and frames:

Anyway I used a 2” square punch to make a few more. Of course it’s the negative from the punch that I used, giving each one a little more texture with flicks of ink, machine stitching and doodling. Then simply arrange and embellish!

Thanks so much… Leeann Pearce

March Guest Designer - Leeann Pearce

Hello Everyone

I am pleased to introduce you to our Guest Designer for March

Leeann Pearce

Leeann will be working with this scrumptious kit

available at

Here's a little bit about Leeann from the lovely lady herself

I live in a small country town just outside of Capel in Western Australia. With my husband Quentin and 3 gorgeous girls Holly 10, Storm 9 and Jorja 3. I am a SAHM at present but I am so excited to jump back into the workforce next year. I have been helping out our community by volunteering and it’s been such a rewarding cause as this is a great stepping stone back into the work force next year.

I have been scrapping for at least 9 years – I scrapped the first few years all by myself as I had no idea about the WWW and Magazines!

I am a 12 x 12 girl. In the last year or two I have started to really get into cards and off the page. Something I was so frightened of for such a long time. Now I LOVE it!

 My scrapping style is colourful, artsy, whimsical and eclectic. You only have to look at my work to see that’s it’s mine. When I get on a new trend I just go for it.  My love at the moment is making arrows, American Indian inspired arrows.

I have been very fortunate that I have been able to work on some amazing design teams in my scrapping years so far. At present I am part of the Aussie scrap Source design team, Twiddleybitz design team, Epiphany Crafts design team, Guest Designing for Core-dinations and just started with ScrapFriends design team.

And just incase you don’t know, yep, I finally got that title of Scrapbooking Memories Master for 2012 -2013 – a goal of mine for some time… Its ok not all of us get a gold ticket straight up some of us have to work that little harder and you know what? I knew I had it this year… because everything was different in my head! My projects had real meaning behind them this time. I was in a different place!... there a little bit of something extra from me!!

I am thrilled and excited to be a guest designer for “A Piece of Cake Design’s” this March 2013.

Cheers Leeann

Can't wait to see what Leeann creates with this months kit!!!

Last share from Leonie our Guest DT for February

OK my very last share of the February kit.
As I mentioned in my last post I got 
5 layouts, 2 cards and some tags from the kit.
That's a pretty good haul. :)

Such a satisfying feeling when you have just a few alphas and some scraps of paper left from a kit. 
Sign of a good kit I think. ;)

Here are the tags I made with the scraps that were left over after I'd finished the layouts.

The ribbon and manilla tags were from my stash but the rest was from the kit. 

And two special cards for my twins.
They're turning 10 years old (eeeeK) this weekend!

The March kit goes on sale Monday 4th March at 8pm.
Over here
