One of my fave things to do in scrapbooking is to create pages with mementos spilling out of pockets. I used them in A Special Delivery templates and thought you know what lets do another pack but this time they are called POCKETS FULL Page Drafts because hey a pocket full of goodies makes everyone happy right!

Wow what a week iNSD was! I hope everyone had a great time shopping and playing in the forums. I hosted a fun template challenge over at Sweet Shoppe Designs and so many lovely pages were subbed.  The random winner was announced in the forum so be sure to check that out. Thank you to everyone that joined in it was tonnes of fun and so cool seeing your incredible pages in the Nifty Pixel gallery. In fact  there was a whopping 160 new pages shared in The Nifty gallery from the start of the iNSD sneak peek day through the entire iNSD weekend! I know hey, what an incredible showing, just mind blowing and so humbling to see the gallery burst with so many stunning creations, so thank you again everyone!

This week has been another hectic one at home. We are about to commence our renovation and extension on our little humble abode so its been a week of meetings and organising the final consultations for exterior/interior colours. We have an appointment next week finalising designs for the kitchen and bathrooms design and squaring off the design details for all our cabinetry in the lounge room and bedrooms. To say its exciting is an understatement we just can’t wait for this to all happen. Its been in the planning since my cancer diagnosis and to finally after 2.5 years to have a build schedule set in concrete is such a relief and will be a huge but much needed change for me and my family. Stay tuned I’ll share some of the progress in future posts.

But hey, I’m here not to talk about all that I’m here to share with you this weeks exciting CU releases. I decided I should package up a tonne of products I had been working on the last few weeks. That means I have 9  new packs to share with you all...OMG. So let’s have a look.

First up I have a pack of well worn and aged papers called CU EPHEMERA | OLD PAPER, a set of brass decorative key charms called CU REALISTIC ELEMENTS | KEYS V.1 and a set of 5 CU TRANSPARENT OVERLAYS | NEWSPRINT V.1 perfect for creating some vintage inspired papers or textures. I also have a third set of delicious CU TEXTURED OVERLAYS | PAINT FUSIONS V.3 created in the nifty mark making factory, hehe! I have a gorgeous collection of CU REALISTIC ELEMENTS | BUTTONS V.9 which I found in my Auntie’s house tucked away in an old Arnott’s tin. There is a fun set of CU EPHEMERA | RECEIPTS & STUBS which consists of a motley crew of old tickets and other event paraphernalia. A set of 5 vintage luggage and parcel tags called CU REALISTIC ELEMENTS | TAGS V.1. This is the first of many tag packs coming your way soon as I have been collecting tags for such a long time I think its time to start photographing and extracting them for your nifty stash. I am re-releasing an old set of CU PATTERN OVERLAYS | MOROCCAN SCREENS, these are such a pretty set inspired by the beautiful interior textures and woodworking found in Morocco. And last but not least a second set of CU REALISTIC ELEMENTS | SPRIGS V.2. A little pack of leaf sprigs and twigs I have harvested from my garden. All of these are available this weekend on sale over at Sweet Shoppe Designs for 25% off. Check them out below.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone hope, stay safe and keep on scrapping!

Hello everyone and Happy International Scrapbook Day! This year I have lots of fun stuff to share with you including two new collaborations and 3 sets of Page Drafts, and there’s more... I also have a fun template challenge for you which gives you a chance to win a Nifty Pixel product of your choice! So lets have a look at all the new goodies first, I so hope you enjoy them!

My first bundle PEP TALK is the third one that Jo of Jocee Designs and I have collaborated on. Jo and I have so much fun creating collections that we plan on doing a monthly collaboration, but today is all about giving ourselves a lil Pep Talk just for an extra boost of self confidence in knowing you can and are capable of good stuff and great things. I also thought it would be fun to create a coordinating set of PEP TALK PAGE DRAFTS with speech bubbles to share those pearlers and to help kick start your pages!

My next collaboration is also the third in Ru, Jen and my series A BEAUTIFUL LIFE called FREE TO LIVE. This one is an artsy relaxed look at just being you and accepting all our kinks as unique and wonderful no matter what. I also did a coordinating set of FREE TO LIVE PAGE DRAFTS for this collection highlighting the beauty of the Butterfly and how it symbolises change and metamorphosis and a sense of freedom.

Last but not least I have a third set of Page Drafts, A TOUCH OF VINTAGE. These are perfect for loved up pages and have mini photo spots, but hey you know how easily templates can be customised so definitely add larger photo spots into these if preferred.

How beautiful are all these pages!? The Nifty gals and the Sweet Shoppe Designs Team created sooooo many stunning pages I was swooning over every single one of them when the girls shared them. So who likes freebies and template challenges?

Yep I sure did! This year I thought it would be fun to host one in the Sweet Shoppe Designs Forum. If you’d like to join me all you have to do is:
  • Click the tab below to be redirected to the SSD forum and download the Freebie Page Draft that you can see below from over there.
  • Create a wonderful project combining the template with other Nifty Pixel product.
  • Share your artwork in the SSD gallery and in the forum thread too.
I will get my trusty side kick, Master Tige to draw a name out of his hat to select a random winner from all the submissions and that lucky participant will get to select a Nifty Pixel product of their choice to add to their nifty stash!
I hope you’ll join me in my template challenge, I get such a kick out of seeing your beautiful and nifty creations. Also have tonnes of fun finding some sweet deals and scrapping with them.
Have a great weekend everyone and keep on scrapping.
