Hi there, I’m so glad to see you here! I must admit I’m a little surprised to see you here with all the inspiration we’re given you already… ohhh you’re saving it for later? Good thinking. Did you enjoy my fellow Aussie Raquel’s projects? I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her in person a couple of times now and she truly is the sweetest, crazy talented AND her kids! Soooo cute! Oh and just wait till you see who is following me.

Today in my house is actually a very special day. Our little princess, and constant photo muse turns one. In fact as this post goes live, we shall be sleeping off her epic birthday bash, that has been claiming my sanity piece by piece for the past week. So forgive me if I don’t seem completely with it. That said, shall we get down to scrappy business? Altenew’s new Scrapbooking Kit is watercoloured magic. I could wax and wane poetically for an hour, but you’d much rather just see my projects wouldn’t you? Great you’re doing me a favour.






Honestly this is just TINY sample of what can be created with this amazing kit. It’s so jam packed with goodness! See:


The bright and vibrant colors in this kit will take you back to all those happy moments captured at home or abroad. From trendy watercolor painted papers, to beautiful cityscape postcards and a wide assortment of embellishments, this kit is perfect for creating gorgeous layouts, wall art, mixed media projects, and many more!

The kit contains:

  1. 48 sheets of 12”x12” patterned paper (two of each design)
