This week we're showcasing our Kindred Spirit line. It has been so popular downunder - we've sold out of it twice and stocked it for a third time. Our US stores are telling us you guys are enjoying it just as much. The colour palette is so bright and cheery that you can scrap pretty much anything with it and it's one of those ranges for girls and boys - yay! This week's layout uses a black and white photo and our cute chipboard butterflies (seen in the summer edition of Creating Keepsakes). Our round stitched cardstock has been used to create a bit of a visual feature around the photo - gotta love the photo though - how cute is she!
We're getting ready for our trip to Arizona for Creative Escape and we're counting down the sleeps! If any of our followers are attending come and say hello - we're working alongside Delish Designs and Lynette Carroll with some of our products in the class. Looking forward to some warmer weather that's for sure - it's freezing downunder right now.
In the meantime again if you're a store and you'd like to stock our ranges Vintage Beauty and Kindred Spirit please give us a shout at Our stock ships out of Chicago so its easy peasy - until next week - have a great week scrapping!

This week a card using up some of the scraps we had left over from our Vintage Beauty layouts. This thank you card is particularly pertinent as I want to say a big thank you to all of you who have sent us emails and comments about our lines - we love that you love what we're doing -it inspires us to do even more for our next CHA Winter release.
On a more personal note this card is for my grandfather. It will be the last card I ever make for him. He is really ill and in palliative care. Before it's too late I want to thank him for all the lovely things he has done for me, the things he has given up to be such a great Dad and Poppa. I want to thank him for caring and for showing me that it's not about where we end up but the journey we take to get there in our lives and that the most important thing is to laugh long and hard along the way.
And that's why I think scrapbooking reasonates so much with me - it's not about showcasing the "achievements" in our life but more the things that happen along the way. It's about how our family gets from one stage to another and being thankful that we were able to be there when it was "all happening". Scrapbooks give us an opportunity to laugh again at those special moments that make up a life - for that I am thankful - especially this week.
Have a great week scrapping!
