Chatter Box Happy Day Mini Album Kit

Wow I can't believe Christmas has come and gone. So much preparation and gift buying and then it's all over. Sometimes it is a relief when Christmas Day finally comes. We had a great day lots of yummy food, great company, laughs and some dancing to ABBA, it was good fun.
I have photos but haven't loaded them onto the computer yet, so when I do I will post some.

Just thought I would mention a new kit that is in store now. This gorgeous new kit from Chatter BOX is already to go just so cute, all you need to do is get photos together and decorate with some of your own stuff as well as what's in the kit. This is a great album to make for the summer break, very bright and summery great for a little holiday album. To find out more and purchase head over to the store.
I have reduced a few of the scrapbooking kits, would love to clear them out and make way for new stock so head on over for a great scrapbooking bargain. You will find them here.
Hope you are having a great Boxing Day. I avoided the sales except for getting some photos printed at Harvey Norman and even that was really packed, although the photo printing section was okay. Enjoy the rest of this blissful Melbourne Day!!

Christmas Tree, Vintage Button & Lace and A Christmas Lolly Tree

Make your own Vintage Style Christmas Tree. I saw an idea similar to this on various blogs last Christmas, can't remember which ones as I see so many. This year I decided to give it a go. It's quick and easy and quite enjoyable actually. A great way to use up all those buttons you have have stashed away or at least some of them.

To make this tree you will need a cone shape of some sort either a foam one, or a chipboard one. For this one I actually used a 12 x 12 piece of thin chipboard, these often come with my paper orders to keep the papers from bending in transit. I then rolled the chipboard around to form a cone. Then the rest is all up to you I wrapped scrapbooking Christmas paper around it. I did a little fringeing along the bottom by cutting a strip of paper say about 3cm in width and then did tiny slits all the way along it and then wrapped it around the base of the tree. I then decorated with lots of gorgeous ribbons and buttons and lace. Finished off at the top with a wooden star which I inked with white ink and then heat embossed with a glittery embossing powder.

This is actually a great kids activity and I nearly ran this as a class for kids but time got the better of me and it became to late to schedule it. So if you are stuck for ideas on how to keep the kids entertained over the next few days, this may be a great one to give a go. Aside from that you will have a decoration you can cherish and take out year after year. You could even pin some lollies on this, I have acutally put together another tree full of lollies as is our yearly tradition, but I can't see why you couldn't combine it with the buttons.

Today my daughter and I made a lolly tree. I had my daughter Melanie help put it together. Poor darling she has the chicken pox, after getting it from her little brother who had it a couple of weeks ago. Still she put on a brave face and made up most of the tree herself. This is another easy project just purchase wrapped chocolates or lollies. Once again you will need a foam cone and some pins with pearl heads. I then filled a box that we had lying around with rice and wrapped it with some decorative scrapbooking paper that was the base. I then decorated with lace and ribbon. You then just pin the chocolates on in layers all the way to the top. I then wrapped our tree in clear cellophane just for safe keeping plus its going to Mum's House for Christmas Lunch. This is even a great grandparents gift Idea. They can then replenish the chocolates for next Christmas and keep the tradition going.
There you have it some Christmas Inspiration. I have started loading our December Gallery on site using our December Scrapbooking Kit, some gorgeous layouts to be seen from our designer Meri. Go take a look on site. Gallery
Have a great night. Anna.

Heidi Swapp Create 08

Well I had the most insipiring night on Tuesday night and I haven't had a chance to jump on here and tell you all about it. It was fantastic to meet Heidi Swapp and sit in her presence for 3 hours and absorb all her advice, see the way she teaches, her knowledge of the scrapbooking industry, tips on the future of scrapbooking and how to grow your business, I could just go on and on. Being a home based online business it is just so important to get out there and attend classes and network and meet people associated with this fabulous industry. When I attend things like this I come back so inspired and filled with energy ready to go and create more and try different things.

We created a gorgeous banner which I almost finished and I do promise I will show some photos when it is finished. I really just need to hole punch and link it alltogether with ribbon. We got to play with some awesome products which I haven't used before, so all in all a wonderful night both on scrapbooking and from a business point of view.
The best part meeting Heidi. It is awesome to meet someone that you have known about for years via the web and through her products, although she lives on the other side of the world who is amazing and dynamic. So to have her here and literally the event was 10min from my house, how could I not attend. So glad I did I just loved it and I am still on a creative high from it!!
Okay that's all for today I will try and post again tomorrow, one of my recent creations is a gorgeous vintage button christmas tree. Can't wait to share this one, quick and easy and just looks fabulous.
Have a great night all!!
