Scrapbook.com for Australia

Hello Friends. I am sure all of you hhave heard about devastating bush fires in Australia. Continent is still burning and many people and animals lost their homes and lives. There are many ways you can help. As you may noticed on my blog, I am an affiliate partner with Scrapbook.com and they recently came up with idea of creating a special cut files set for all electronic die cutting machines dedicated to support Australia. All the profit they will make selling it, will be given to the Asutralian Red Cross Society. I created a project with this cut file set, showing you the fun way you can use it. Many other affiliate partners joined making their own projects, and you can see them all added to the Scrapbookcom gallery under the file itself.
This is how the cut file set looks like:


You will get a great title, few cards with a shape of koala and pretty flowers and leaves. Many amazing designs for only 5$. Affiliate partners won't be getting any commision, so every cent could go to help for Australia.

I had a great pleasure to visit Australia in 2019 with my classes and I spend there almost three weeks enjoying sighseeing. I also spend one day in Australia Zoo, where I treated myself with Koala cuddling experience. I just love those animals, they are above cute, and it breaks my heart seeing them injured and learning that they are on the edge of extinction. That's why I chose a picture of me holding one handsome koala gentleman to scrapbook it with the cut files.
I hope you will join us in helping Australia and her inhabitants (humans and animals) rise after the tragedy that happened to them.

LO "Love love love story" | Scrapbook.com

Hello Friends. Welcome in my first post in 2020. After few days of christmas break, I had some troubles getting back on track with my mojo but I finally managed to finish my first page. Yay for me :)  and for you becasue I am sure you missed me dearly :D Today I want to show you the page showcasing new series of products from Scrapbook.com. Foam adhesives are a silent heroes of all of my projects. I use tons of them and I am always in a hunt for new ones. I usually use little squares but it takes ages to unglue the protective sheet from them with a bigger surfaces. Having a wider choice, with tapes, sheets and shapes was a dream come true to me. And Scrapbook.com made it happen :D


I created a cute layout with a mixed media background about the friendship and love between my daughter and our family dog - Pirat. They grew up together, they are in a similar age and they just love to cuddle. I am trying to (like in every year...) to use up some of my older collections, that may be a little forgotten. I reached for Crate Paper love themed lines: "Main squeeze" (from 2018) and "La la love" (from 2019). They both match together pefectly. I created a background using Gelatos and mists and embellished it with tags and hearts.
I also recorded a process video, so you can follow my process.


Here is the finished page:

I went crazy with die cutting using "Hibiscus garden 3D" die set. My backgroud was once again created with watercolor brush markers.

LO "Snow much frosty fun" | Scrapbook.com

Hello, hello. I am back with another project created with exclusive product from Scrapbook.com. This time I was playing with glitter brush marker. I must admit it's the first time I had an opportunity to use this kind of product. If I wanted to add shimmer to my projects in the past I was usually using some colorless mist with pearl powder only. Having shimmer marker is much more convinient though with smaller elements. It's also much more shimmery that a mist. I thought that it looks like frost when it's dry so I decided to use it on winter themed page. I recorded a process video, so you can easily follow me.


This is how the finished page look like. Check the end of the post for the list of supplies I used.
