August inspiration for Scrapper’s Delights


Isn’t this guy just adorable!  Meet Robot Chip 2 from the online store at Scrapper’s Delights.  Chip 2 is a digital images that comes either as an outline or as a coloured image.  In favour of time this month, I wanted to try out what a coloured image looked like when printed. I must say I was very pleased with the colour from my printer and the over professional finish of Chip 2!

The robot collection from Scrapper’s Delights can be viewed in store at  Here is what you get for only $2….$2…what a bargain!

For this planner layout, I used patterned paper as the base.  Coloured the edges of the base pages and the planner pages using Distress Crayons.  Stamped the days of the week (for this one I have not included the dates yet as I am not sure where this will slot in to my planner).  The wooden veneer cogs are from D-lish Scraps and compliment Chip 2 very nicely.

This is the horizontal planner from Scrapper’s Delights which can be purchased in store at  Lets take a look at the planner page….


A few sparkly silver enamel dots and it’s a simply done planner page layout!  Thanks for joining me and be sure to check out the amazing design team work at the Scrapper’s Delights challenge blog at

Little Blue Button Stamps August new release


Hello crafty friends, I am here with the August new release for Little Blue Button Stamps.  Dont they just look delicious – donuts!!  Not only one of my favorite sweet treats, this is one of my fav digital stamps.

I created this pocket card that is 4×4 inches.  The card is from Stampin Up! and I just love that watercolour splashed background.  I have simply coloured the donuts with Zig Clean Colour real brush markers.  I add some Mod Podge dimensional magic to the ‘icing’ area to make it shine like real icing.

Kellie Stamps ‘Nuts About Food’ stamp set was just ideal for this card – the reference to donuts and all the feels that go with them was perfect!

For my project, I have created a recipe card that I can easily include in to my planner.  Scones is a recipe I have recently perfected (well….maybe not perfected but it’s pretty darn good as I am not a baker, cook or chef by any means!).  What a great way to capture the recipe and have it easily at hand next time I go to make them.

I often wish that that I had just one recipe of my grandmother’s with her hand writing on it, so I included my handwriting on the back side of this card.


Whilst I dont like my handwriting on projects, I braved this one to include it.

I inked the edges of the card using distress ink and added some patterned paper to the front.  The digital image ‘Charlie’ was coloured with coloured pencils and Stampin Up blendabilities markers. I also include a small photograph of my scones on the recipe card.

If you would like to purchase this fantastic digital set, you can do so at Just think of all the projects you could complete with the 14 designs and 41 digital images included!!! From building your own kitchen scene to simply printing out the recipe cards to document your favorite dishes….just awesome!  Janice at Scrappers Delights really has outdone herself this month!

Thanks for joining me and I cant wait to see your creations with this new release.
