Mosaic Mirrors

I Made these mirros yesterday.... the large flower (which stands almost a meter tall) was donated to the school for a fund raising auction and I made the two smaller ones simply because I could not help myself!!
When I asked my elderly father what he thought of the large flower mirror he graciously pointed out that if I droped and broke it, at least it would still look normal!!

Recently I participated in a
(STL) with a lovely lady named Sherry Mendoza.

She also has her own blog that is well worth taking a look at:
Anyway, we both sent each other a photo via e-mail and then scrapbooked it onto an actual page and then sent them back to the original owner via snail mail.... and this is the result.... Above you can see the layout I did for Sherry and below is the layout that she did for me. Heaps of FUN!
Lay out


Recently I entered this lay out in the Bentley Art Prize and managed to recieve a Highly Commended award, it's a very busy page where I mostly used stamping and opals embossed on chipboard. The flower made from paisley swirls was an idea I scraplifted off a card that Tanya (from scrap n craft with T) had made ages ago. Bright paper and lots of white flourish rubons help to make this layout quite loud and happy .... much like the subjects themselves in the photos!!


This was a pretty simple Layout that I did for our recent 'Big Day In' where we all got together and scrapbooked all day for hours on end! Thanks to the buttons, lace and pastle tones of the papers it is a very soft layout (although this photo is a bit on the weak side!). I designed it to be simple and easy to replocate. The kits to make this whole page (with heaps of papers left over) worked out at only $7.45each!

This is an older layout, but a fav. Were we ever this young???? Made this whole page using Kaiser stuff ...except the buttons! I LOVE this elegance paper!

I made this hanging keepsake for a friends little boy for his second birthday .... If you have ever had a little one in day care or preschool you will know they bring home an inordinate amount of 'artwork'! It's customary in our home to display this for at least a week before it mysteriously disapears (into the bin!). Sometime if its a really special work of art, it will stay on display for ages ... having somewhere to display it is the real challenge. Hence the dog clips on this BTP project. This was originally a floral hanging keepsake, that Kaiser make, it has 3 MDF flowers hanging from the bottom, so really I just replaced them with the clips.
It won a place in the June Beyond The Page competition that Kaisercraft ran on the forum. This was a real buzz.
It's made using all Kaisercraft products - the lettering, the rubons, the papers and even the painted little wooden puppy and cat!


I made this Kaisercraft 'handbag' up after seeing one like it on the kaisercraft forum that I just fell in love with. I ADORE these papers and this little handbag turned out just divinely. There are some REALLY clever designers over there in the Kaiser forum, do yourself a favour and go and check it out..... . I also made up a kit so you can make this whole thing for yourself ... everything is included - paint, glue, brushes, papers, flowers, ribbons and bling!! All for only $19.95!


My big boy when he was once very little .... quite a simple page really, made with Kaiser paper, rub-ons and bling and some crumpled papers with chalking added.


Two gorgeous kids encaded in some gorgeous Kaiser paper, this 'Hideaway' paper range is just lovely and I have had to do very little to the original page to create this layout. The photo is huge only because I pressed the wrong button at the photo kiosk and ended up with the wrong enlargement!!


Shes such a cute little pixie! This photo was taken when she was only 3 months old, now she is one and a half and has just began to speak, she points at her breakfast cereal and says ‘lollies’, she points at her water cup and says lollies, she points at her grandpa and says lollies has thus far taught her, that approximately a third of the time you will get what you want!!

This is my eldest son and his best mate ... hanging out on the lounge playing the playstation (what else would 10yo boys be doing??)! This page has a few random chipboard shapes included in it, but for the most part everything here is from Kaisercraft too.


This is a photo of my 'big' girl- Kiah, with her little sister. They are looking particularly gorgeous in this shot! Again, every thing on the page is pretty much Kaiser product except the ruby red bazzill and the hole punch I used to punch out the butterflies with!! This page is extreemly simple ... it's an easy one to copy!!
You can buy a kit to make this page for only $9.90!


This is my gorgeous boy Noah, and This Layout is made ENTIRELY from Kaisercraft products. I actually entered this in a competition that Kaiser were running in July and won a prize ... a heap of yummy boys scrapbooking stuff! If you would like to see the otehr winners of their competitins then just follow this link:
When you get there scroll down to the competitons section ...I also won a Beyond the page competition that month too that you can see there!
You can buy a kit to make this page for yourself for only $12.90!


This is my lilly girl, she looks quite innocent in this photo, but let me asure you, she most certianly is not innocent! She is infact comepletly guilty of just about any thing and everthing a 3 year old can be guilty of! Again, this whole paper range, most of the the rub-ons and the rhinestones come from the Kaisercraft collection.


This is my baby girl. I used all Kaisercraft products to create this layout ...the paper, border, rub-ons, Rhinestones, pearls and the wood flourish. The Ribbon is the only non-Kaiser thing. The graduating colours in the ribbon give it a wonderful dimentional look - they should definately make more ribbon like this! (don't ask me who 'they' are mind you).
