It is so exciting to tell you all about this months Featured Designer at Sweet Shoppe Designs Blog. My lovely friend and fellow designer Jennifer Fehr is debuting there and I’ve made it no secret of how much I love her designs, they are just perfection!

For Jenn’s Exposé she landed the letter ‘Z’ in the 2018-2019 Alphabet Series. Jennifer ended up creating the cutest and happiest, most wonderful and satisfactual kit called ZipadeedoodahReading up on how she came up with the idea is so sweet and I love this whimsical walk in the flowers with some very cute little friends in tow. The palette is so pretty with pops of Cyan, Burgundy and a splash of Yellow for sunshine! I couldn’t help but make a few pages, this kit honestly got me all inspired and its a FWP so be sure to check out her store at Sweet Shoppe Designs and especially the Trimmings Pack designed to coordinate with Zipadeedoodah...the previews are at the end of this post for you to swoon over. 

I’ve been lucky enough to be on Jenn’s team for the past few years. Her kits are pure magic, so pretty and whimsical and bright. No surprise there because thats exactly what Jennifer is. She is one of the kindest most sweet people I have met in a really long time. You know when you find a kind soul because they inspire you to be a better person. The first page I’m sharing is dedicated to Jennifer and what a wonderful friend and a shining light she truly is! The rest of the pages are of me and my boys, you know the ones I’m always scrapping about, the loves of my life! ♡

A page for my beautiful friend Jennifer!
I just love a clustered bunting!
A little niche inspired page.
Butterflies are a flutter with this one!
Crazy, cute, cuddly, Cookie, thats what I call him. For my husband.

Here is the kit...
 ...and the fabulous Trimmings Bundle which include, Wordart for perfect titles or accented quotes. A pack of Artsy Stuff filled with lots of hand drawn doodles and some great accented elements and textures. Journal Cards for adding journaling to or to create lovely stacks or to make the perfect pocket page. And lastly, a set of Clusters I created for Jennifer, perfect for the time savvy scrapper.
Thanks for popping by, 
I hope you have a Zipadeedoodah kind of Wonderful Day!

I’m back this time with some more exciting stuff to share. Lynn Grieveson and I collaborated again on another template pack. This time a 12 x12 set of 4 little pretties called LIFE RECORDED. These templates are perfect for capturing those magical everyday moments and are currently on sale at 40% off over at The Lilypad.

For every pack sold I’ll be donating my portion of the profits to NBCF Australia, the exact same foundation as the one I’ve nominate to donate to for The Lilypad October Inspiration Challenge. So its exciting to be able to help raise some funds for Breast Cancer Research with your help!

...oooh and because its DSD I wanted to offer up a freebie mini kit to you all, which is also called LIFE RECORDED. To grab that you’ll have to scoot over to The Nifty Pixel blog to get there scroll down to the freebie preview and click on it!

Here are my pages so far created during this DSD weekend using the templates, the freebie mini I created and some awesome kits by some of my favourite designers.

Here are the templates and the Mini freebie previews click on them to be redirected :)

Happy DSD everyone!

Hi everyone and welcome to the October Challenges. Did you know that October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH? That means its time to check your boobies either by visiting your GP or by doing a thorough self examination. Don’t put it off and keep up with it every month just to be sure.
This month I am hosting the Inspiration challenge over at The Lilypad. I would love to do something special this month and suggest a little nod to BCA and what better way is there to show our support than by including a Pink BowPink Ribbon/Ric Rac or a Strip/Band of Pink Paper to our pages.

If you wanted to take it a step further you could create a page that is predominately pink too so long as you have a bow or ribbon in it! How amazing would it be to see The Lilypad Gallery bursting in every hue of pink imaginable! Oh my heart would be full!

Here’s my page. I created a predominately pink page and added two pink ribbons, 1 bow and a strip of pink paper just to cover all the possible challenge criteria hehe

For every page that is created showcasing a pink ribbon, bow or pink strip of paper, I will donate $1 AUD to the NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION here in Australia. This amazing organisation offered lots of support and information to me during my breast cancer fight. To make it even more incredible our lovely Laura McCandless has offered to match my donation by donating her portion to a foundation of her choice, we will keep you posted on which one, but how awesome is that! As a community we could raise a sizeable amount for this cause. So if you decide to join us make sure to share your page in the October Inspiration Challenge thread to be counted.
For all the challenge details scoot over to the Challenge Pad at TLP and join us for some Pretty in Pink fun!

I can't wait to see your pink ribbon pages everyone!

Hugs Em x
