‘Chasing Dreams’ with Sassyscrappers

Hello everyone! With the beginning of a new month I thought I would share with you all the projects I created for February with Sassyscrappers

I had the joy of working with the Chasing Dreams collection by Maggie Holmes.Swoon! Haven’t seen it yet?? Check it out here.

I really tried to mix it up this month and found myself creating lots of different projects.First of all was my pocket pages.I created page inserts using elements from the collection and using smaller sized photos over the top.


I was super happy how these turned out.They had a really delicate vibe!




Here is a closer look at the inserts I made-


Next up was my Butterfly layout.If you follow my Instagram you will remember how I went on a fussy cutting adventure-


I now have hands as strong as steel!

But once my layout came together I knew it was totally worth it.Those Butterflies are so pretty!


Next I thought I would give my planner a makeover….as you do.Theses papers and stickers etc are SO versatile and I knew they would look amazing in a planner set up.







My final project for the month I decided to make some postcards.I kind of got the idea after I made the inserts for my pocket pages.For the back I used stamps from Kaisercraft, they gave a great effect.


So that was what I’ve been up to.How about you?

I hope you enjoyed todays read,

Until next time,

Kylie xoxo

‘Cute Girl’ Scrapbooking layout

Hello friends! It has been a while since I last updated my blog.I blinked and July somewhat disappeared.

Today I am sharing with you a project completed with the Sassyscrappers Design Team.I have completed a Scrapbooking layout using the new ‘Cute Girl’ collection by Crate paper

When I first saw this I died! No really……I truly LOVE everything about this gorgeous range and can’t wait to share more projects with you including some Snailmail.Here’s just a few pieces of the range-

Now was I right or was I right??Adorable! And this is only some of it.

Anyway, here is a look at my layout-


I love adding a touch of Shabby Chic in my themes and this collection lends itself perfectly for that.I don’t know why but corrugated cardboard is my latest big thing.I love the textures you can create with it.The flowers and bird cage chippy were from my stash but they went beautifully with the theme.I added a touch of pastel colour to the ‘My Girl’ wooden tag for a softer effect.

Here’s a closer look-IMG_8803blog 2_opt





So there you have it! Feel free to ask any questions and you can also catch my latest adventures via Instagram here

Keep creating and have a wonderful day!

June-Sassyscrappers Designs Team.Project 4

Hello everyone! June is coming to a close and for my last design project with Sassyscrappers I am again using the ‘You are here’ collection by Simple Stories.This is a great collection to use if you are documenting your travels or holidays! I love the collection of papers,stickers etc.You can see them all here

This week I wanted to make a mini travel journal.I’ve never lied about how slack at journaling I am.I always start with great intentions and then never get round to finishing.This little booklet is a way of keeping a few special photos of your travels and making a few short journal notes as well.You could also keep receipts,tickets or anything else that was special about your trip, and because of its size you aren’t committed to journaling page after page.Here are some pics of the finished result-


I wanted the finished book to look as though it was ‘busy’ and full of interesting things.I also wanted it to look uneven.You can see I have cut all my pages to different sizes.I start small at the front and gradually get larger.I have bound the pages together by using my sewing machine and stitching down the centre.You will see this soon.



You can see here all the different sized papers and the tabs added around the edges, really help with the effect I was after.


The first inside page on the left I wanted to have look like a postcard! I think the simplicity helped achieve that.The page on the right, I’ve left room for adding a holiday snap.The first introduction to your little book.


You could line this page with a map of where you are staying but I thought the enamel marker dots and string was a fun addition for the theme.


Next I included a paper tab for holding another photo and ticket on this page.You could also place receipts etc here.


Next is the middle of the book.This photo gives a great view of how I stitched the book together.The inclusion of these next few pages are for journaling. I will be filling these in later.


I allowed three pages for documenting, but if you are savvy at journal writing, you could add more pages to your book.



These last few pages I have dedicated to photos.The stickers and bits & pieces from this collection are so fun to highlight your project with.


I hope you have enjoyed this weeks project.This would also be a fab, deluxe postcard to send to someone.The possibilities are endless!


Thanks for reading! Have a fun week!

June ~Sassyscrappers design team.Project 3

Hello again!

For this weeks project with the Sassyscrappers  design team I am working with one of my very fave brands Simple Stories and their new ‘Bloom & Grow’ collection.As it is Winter here in Australia (and a yucky one at that) I loved using all the cute little accents to remind me of Spring!Here are a few quick snaps of the outside of this little book.You will see that I have used some rings to bind the pages together.




For this design I used some plain brown cardstock as a base for my pages.I think it gave it a really nice rustic appeal.For those of you wanting to know measurements I cut each piece of brown card to 6″ x 6″ or 15cm x 15cm. Using the 6″ x 6″ paper pad from this collection, I cut 1cm or 10mm off each side prior to gluing to the brown cardstock.


I have to say I love all the cute little bits and pieces in this range.How seriously cute is that wee Garden Gnome??


When you first turn the page of the front cover, you will see I have added a little pocket.I plan to add some gift tags or stickers into this.I have also used zig zag stitching done on my sewing machine as little borders throughout the whole book, for the rustic appeal again.


This next page I added a little space to put some seedlings to send.(And yes they are Sweetpeas of course!) I thought it added a nice touch considering the theme of the mail.


NOTE: I’m not sure whether I would send seedlings internationally.I plan on sending this within Australia as I’m not sure if some countries,customs laws may frown upon this.But you could still use this tab for placing tags,photos,stickers….Anything you like.


On the next two pages I have added some simple,yet generous sized pockets for placing your letter and other goodies into.

‘Lettuce Turnip the Beet’…..So cute and quirky!


I hope you like my project for this week.To conclude it I tied some co-ordinating pieces of ribbon to the rings.I think it gave it a fun,country vibe!


You can buy all your supplies for this project via the Sassyscrappers website

Here are a couple of other projects that have been on my creative desk recently too, I hope they give you some inspiration for your next project!

Keep creating!

June~ Sassyscrappers design team.Project 1

I can’t believe we are in June already.Whaaaatt??

This week as part of the Sassyscrappers design team I am using products from the Hello Sunshine collection by Cocoa Vanilla.I love the Summer themes and colours.

I had so many ideas for these goodies, and this was the finished result!


Again I’ve been playing with layering cardstock,adding stitiching and spray mist for texture.I thought the faint application of the spray mist added the effect of clouds to the cover.


Inside the front cover finds a cute pocket for putting your mail or cards in.I love the denim look paper in this range.


To the right side here you will see I have added a little paper slot for putting gift tags in.I love making tags!You can personalise them any way you please!


In the centre of the book features a fold up pocket or envelope.This is great for storing any goodies you like into and I think it adds an element of fun to your project!


Since it was a Summer themed booklet I also added my own fun photograph!


This was a lot of fun to make.I hope you will try also! You can follow my YouTube video tutorial here

Much love

May 2016 ~ Hello Gorgeous

For the last week of May with the Sassyscrappers design team, I found myself creating with the ‘Hello Gorgeous’ collection by My Minds Eye again.

This time I decided to create a very simple, yet sweet flip book for sending mail in.IMG_0683.jpg

Lately I have loved adding layer upon layer, fussy cutting and using foam tape to raise and add interest to my projects.IMG_0679.jpg

From side on you can see the effect of this! I also added some gold,metallic string as a background feature.

Inside was again very simple…..


The pocket on the inside cover would be ideal for storing your letter or cards in.Whilst the right side lifts up to reveal a cute little pocket….IMG_0674.jpg

I add some detail stitching (very carefully) with my sewing machine.IMG_0689

I love that less is often more with details.This wasn’t an overly embellished little booklet but I still think it would be lovely to receive.IMG_0685.jpg

Thanks for reading today.I’m excited for what projects are created in June!

Keep creating!

Kylie ( Paper Sweetpea )
