It's Freestyle time at Hiding in My Craft Room this week, so it is Anything Goes!! 
In the lead up to Christmas I made quite a few cards as presents and they were made from my scrap stash 
This card was one of them

The arrows are the left over bits of the MFT Chevron Die that I used on another card, the image is from The Greeting Farm she is called Twirl Anya. 

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink stamp set Heart-2-Heart mini stamp set.

Paint the Town

Here we are, it's Super Scraps Saturday again, seems like yesterday we were doing Novembers scrap card, and now we are into December Super Scraps at Hiding In My Craft Room 

For my card I decided to really try to us up some left over strips

As it worked out I had this lovely rainbow of colours in my scraps!! And they really went together well. I cut them into 1 inch strips and punched each one with my scallop punch. To get them even I have first put them on a scrap card, then attached them to that before adhering that to the black card base. 

Out of my pre-cut box I have used a silhouette of this girl on the scooter, she is from the Cricut cart Sweethearts

The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs Stamp set Fashionable friends. 
Now it is your time to get into your scrap box and see what you can come up with this week and join us at Hiding In My Craft Room Challenge #75

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie

What 3 Colours Will I Choose

This week at Hiding In My Craft Room we are using our 3 favourite colours, so I must first say my 3 favourite colours are Pink Purple and Orange, but I didn't think that would work with this wonderful digi stamp I was given from The Stamp Society For this challenge, So I decided to use my favourite combination for cards...RED WHITE & BLACK, I think these colours make a very stunning combination

The Digital Image from The Stamp Society was designed by the very talented Mitzi Sato-Wiuff and the Thinking of you stamp from the Australian company Stamp-it fits perfectly with this image!! 

I have made this an easel card, that will fit into a square envelope 
For instructions to make an Easel card go HERE

To keep the easel open, I have used a combination of Stampin' Up and Kaisercraft stamps. The paper is from Bella! Oriental chic paper pad available at Spotlight in Australia.

I really enjoyed doing this challenge, fun to use an image that I would not normally be drawn to, but I really love this one!!
Please take a look at what the rest of the Design Team have come up with for this challenge. They are a truly inspiring team!!

So now it is your turn to enter this colour challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #70!! 

I am entering this into the Simon Says Challenge - Thinking of you

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie

Disney Blog Hop

Welcome to the First Annual Blog Hop for...


Rett Syndrome Awareness

Your first stop should have been at Robin Lane's Blog, if you did not start there please go back to the beginning...

What is Rett Syndrome? Rett Syndrome is a devastating neurologic developmental disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls. It is usually caused by a mutation of the MECP2 gene on the X chromosome. Rett Syndrome is found in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world, and in every socioeconomic class. Rett Syndrome affects 1 in 15,000 female births. 

Early developmental milestones appear normal, but between 6-18 months of age, there is a delay or regression in development, particularly affecting speech, hand skills and coordination. A hallmark of Rett Syndrome is the repetitive hand movements that may include seizures, irregular breathing, swallowing difficulties, and curvature of the spine. Many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood.
There is currently no cure.

To raise awareness of this syndrome we are having a Disney Theme for our Blog Hop.

For my card I have decided to use one of the Disney Princesses, and not a frilly glittery one, but a strong independent one, Yes of course it is Pocahontas!!

Pocahontas is one of my daughters favourites, and insisted that I make her!! She is from the Cricut Cartridge Dreams Come True.
This cart is a must for any Disney Princess Lover.

The paper I have used are Kaisercraft Tiny Woods and the sentiment is from K Andrew Designs stamp set Positive Thoughts. (This set is currently 60% off) It fits perfectly with Pocahontas, she was the weaver of her own dreams!! 

I used a glitter pen on the sentiment to enhance the sentiment, you can just see it in the photo above but looks so much better in person !!

We will have two lucky winners from this weekends blog hop.
You must be a follower of...
Leave a comment on each of the blogs to be entered to win one of the prizes.

Prize One is a Disney Princess Scrapbook Kit, and a few Goodies from the International Rett Syndrome Foundation, a bracelet, a pen, and a car magnet.
Prize Two is a Disney Theme Park Scrapbook Kit, and a few Goodies from the International Rett Syndrome Foundation, a bracelet, a pen, and a car magnet.
