Colour Loading

Hey hey! Wanted to show you the classes I designed for October.  They're both super colourful and cheery:

"Mist Mask Mayhem" is full of misting, masking and lots of fun with paint and inks.  I made mine into a personal journal but you can always use yours for photos as well.

"Celebrate Childhood" is an altered pizza box which has lots of compartments and mini albums inside it.  Its got glitter and paint and even a little box within the box.

I majorly messed up my house while designing them just for you, so you must sign up ok? haha. See ya!

It's All About the Candy

Hello! Happy Monday!

We don't really celebrate Halloween in the Ngoo house, but there's certainly one thing that I've always thought is cool about Halloween - the candy!!

So, here are a trio of treat bags for holding all that halloween candy made from Graphic45's awesome Happy Haunting Collection:

They're quick and easy to make:
(sorry the pic is a bit small....I can't seem to get blogger to get the sizing right...but it should be bigger if you click on the image and you can also get a larger image on the Graphic45 blog).

Happy Halloween! (to come)

Back to Black...

This little suitcase was originally red, but thanks to some paper, and a generous dose of black paint, its now just the way I like it.

Inside there are little spaces for keeping photos and things:

a little accordian album:

and more little albums in plastic pockets:

Lots of my space for a friend to put all her holiday snaps.
Hope she likes black too!

Multi-Layered Album

Hello! Happy Monday! School has started again for the kids. We all had a nice break this past week and everyone is now trying to get back into the swing of things again. (some more grumpily than others...heh).

Here's a cheery project to chase away the monday blues:
This project was for a class in August - a mini album with three 'layers'.

This is how it opens:

Here's the first 'layer' that flips down (lots of pages for photos inside):

Behind that is the next 'layer' that opens like this: (with more pages for photos of course)

And lastly the tallest layer that opens like this:

Just in case you were wondering, this album is made with the 7gypsies Board Kit: Tryptich House, LOTS of cardstock, pattern papers and embellishments from Basic Grey's What's Up collection, patterns from Sassafrass and also Hambly overlays for hinges and 'window glass.

Have a great week ahead!

Graphic45 Matchbox and Liz Hicks Blog Hop

 Fun stuff is up on the Graphic45 blog today...

1) A blog hop with Liz Hicks - just hop on over to her blog and leave a comment to try winning for yourself a lovely G45 prize.

2) A fun project I made with the new G45 Matchbook box:
 made with lovely papers from Graphic45's ABC primer collection - one of my favourites...
The matchbook box slides open to reveal lots of little compartments for the kiddies to store all their little treasures and finds...
And here's a picture showing you that scrapbooking is mathematical...  I had to do quite a bit of calculation for this project....but in a fun way :)
You can read more about some additional ideas and the supplies used in this project on the Graphic45 blog post.

sorry I can't chat too much.... in a bit of a hurry. We're off fishing tomorrow! Catch you when we get back!
