"Organized Chaos"- Flutterby Designs

The year is certainly moving fast.
Term 2 of school is right into the thick of it
And I just scrapped my first page about the new school year.

Created using pieces from Flutterby Designs.

Thought the star stencil
Was perfect for our superstars.

Not to mention the flair!
Very fitting, don't you think?


I had fun with some of the new Flutterby paint.

"Train Spotting" - May 2016 Kraft Plus Challenge

The new challenge is up at Kraft Plus

And it certainly was a challenge for me!

So I gave it all I had,

Leaving any overthinking at the door.

Pulling out every fun thing to play with

And just see where it all went.
I know it's what I usually do when I scrapbook
But it needed to be more truer with this page.
So my tip for you today...
When faced with a scrappy challenge
Seize it
Let go
Enjoy the process.

As Seen In Scrapbooking Memories Magazine Vol 18 No 12 - "#streetart"

Sometimes you have to create with what is around you.

It could be leftover bits.

It could be excess paint.

It can all be used to make something worthwhile.

And it is definitely how this page came together.

As Seen In Scrapbooking Memories Magazine Vol 18 No 12 - "You Are My Happy"

Last year I was fortunate enough to attend the retreat Escape 2 Create.
One of my table buddies was my lovely friend
Louise Nelson.
She had created some stamps
And gave me a card she had created
(saying it reminder her of Dave and I).
I used it straight away and made this page,
Which has recently been published in Scrapbooking Memories Magazine.

Thank you again Louise!

REVIEW - "Bunchems"

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Funtastic "Bunchems"
 The postman arrived.
We beat him to the door and the girls were excited to see
That the package he delivered contained "Bunchems".

None of us had heard of these before
But the box certainly had us intrigued and excited to create something fun.

The Mega Pack contains more than 400 pieces and a book of ideas.
There are 8 different colours to choose from
And 36 pieces to dress up your creations.

"Squish 'em, connect 'em, create 'em"
The plastic "burr" spheres stick together
(they reminded us of hair curlers)
and easily pull apart for more creating.
Got to love reusable craft supplies!!!
The accessories simply stick into a specially designed hole in the spheres
So you can make endless amounts of characters or creatures.
"If you can think it, you can create it with Bunchems"
Bunchems are a great way for kids to use not only
Their imagination and creative construction skills
But also work on their fine motor skills
And engage in role play.

Bunchems do come with some warnings.
Not meant for children under 4 years of age
They are a choking hazard
They can get caught on loose clothing or hair.
The company have released a tutorial for what to do if this happens
The video can be viewed HERE

I highly recommend using them under strict adult supervision
Because they are lots of fun and you can join in the creativity too!!
Bunchems certainly are a great way to spend time together
As a family or with friends.

They are a great way to create without a mess.
No glue required
Just your imagination!

Our only criticism is that the accessory pack
Needed a pirate hat and eye patch!!
That would have made the pack complete!!
But all in all we all agreed

Bunchems are currently available at Big W
You can purchase them HERE
