Welcome to October ...

Welcome to our October Green Moodboard. Layouts using green can look so very different depending on the depth of colour you use so please feel free to go as light or as dark toned as you like, or as soft or as bright as you want or mix it up - let's make green shine!


We'd love to see you take inspiration from this board and incorporate items you see and inspire you - perhaps you like using crayons or pencils or can see a school theme created from these.  Like the rustic look of the door and want to use a similar texture on your page. Want to tell a story about books or are inspired by the segments of the lime or umbrella? Whatever catches your eye please mention what inspired you on your entry.

and now some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful 2022 team ...
(in no particular order)

Heather Bensley (Australia)
My inspiration for this page was the lime slices, the squares and the leaves. I have done a double page because I couldn’t decide which photos to leave behind.

Amanda Moran (Australia)
As soon as I saw the limes in the mood board I knew I’d have to do a cocktail layout. Also took inspiration from the books and used a text stamp in the background.

Made my own background using Distress Crayons inspired by the crayons and pencils from the moodboard. This kitten was actually called Green for its first few weeks of fostering. My leaves which are 49 market vellum were inspired by the leaves pictured on the moodboard.

Victoria King (Australia)
Hello Hobbiton, it’s little hard to see, but in the middle of the village there is a big round green door, so I was inspired by the door in the moodboard.

Said door can be viewed in Karen's layout below.

Karen Guy (Australia)
Yes Hobbiton, I love it, my inspiration The Green Door, how can you miss this green door and I had a stamp that matched…

Karen Brierley (Australia)
The green foliage inspired me to dig into my stash of rainforest photos.

Karen Jarman (Australia)
coming soon

Tracey Beer (Australia)

Jane Howden (Australia)
When I saw this image doing the rounds on the internet I just knew I had to do a tribute page for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II this month.

Our September guest ...

Please welcome our September guest designer, Natalie Donoghue with her delightful take on our purple moodboard challenge this month.


Inspired by the books , dragonflies and gems.

Hi I’m Natalie or Nat to my friends. 

I was double excited to be asked to be this months guest designer for two reasons - 1)  just being asked and 2) finding out the colour is purple (my second favourite colour).

I have been scrapbooking and card making for a number of years now and find it a rewarding and relaxing hobby!

Most recently I have really been exploring art journaling and using a lot of multi media on my pages. I really enjoy repurposing items to use such as dress labels, tags, tissue paper and gift wrap. I don’t have favourite suppliers or items, that changes depending on the day!



Thank you so much for guesting with us this month Natalie, it's been wonderful having you join us.

There is still plenty of time to play along with our challenge this month - we'd love to see your take using this colour.

Victoria King (Australia)
I saw the door in the mood board and thought buildings, which lead me to this great piece of street art from Melbourne CBD.

Karen Brierley (Australia)
Well I don't love scrapping with purple but I'm pretty happy with how this one came together. Dragonflies, spots inspired by the glass baubles, and also the spiral doodles were inspired by the shells.

Karen Jarman (Australia)

Heather Bensley (Australia)
My inspiration for this was the door, the dragon fly and the swirl pattern on the snails and also the hearts.

Amanda Moran (Australia)
My purple layout inspired by the circles (& love hearts) in the mood board and yes, that is a foot long dagwood dog.

Theresa Kamp (Australia)
So cute purple hair and puppies.

Tracey Beer (Australia)
Inspired by the hearts, shells and beads.

Karen Guy (Australia)
Not a colour I work with a lot, but got my inspiration from the glimpses of flowers and the door in the Mood board when I found this photo!

Jane Howden (Australia)
Took inspiration from the dragonfly and when I found I had none in my stash used butterflies cut from washi tape instead, with added hearts and flowers.

Our August Guest ...

 Please welcome our August guest designer, Lisa Kynaston, with her gorgeous take on our yellow moodboard challenge this month.

I have taken inspiration from the flowers, the Vintage print pages and aged paint. I have created a vintage style layout and aged and distressed the paper with a mustard & vintage ink pad.

Hi, My name is Lisa Kynaston, I have been scrapbooking for at least 20 years. I live in Hervey Bay, QLD, Australia. I mainly use pre-digital photos from the 90's but I have been doing more recently with printed digital photos of my grandchildren and also some older vintage photos. My style is evolving and changing all the time and I love to give anything a go and love using my stash and scraps. 

I have a page on Facebook "Scrapbook Layouts by Lisa" and a lot of my older designs are on Pinterest.


Thank you so much for guesting with us this month Lisa, so happy you could join us.

There is still plenty of time to play along with our challenge this month - we'd love to see your entry.

Welcome to August ...

 Welcome to our August moodboard.

Our colour this month is a tribute to Cancer Council Daffodil day - Thursday 25th August, 2022.  I think there would not be many amongst us who haven't been touched by this insidious disease so if you can, please pick up a pen or a teddy or something else from one of their many stalls or make a donation in person or on line.  Your contribution matters!

Daffodil Day is one of Australia’s best known and most popular fundraising events.
Each day more than 100 Australians will die of cancer. Daffodil Day raises funds for Cancer Council to continue its work in cancer research, providing patient support programs and prevention programs to all Australians. Daffodil Day helps grow hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, hope for a cure.

To Cancer Council, the daffodil represents hope for a cancer-free future. You too can help in the fight against cancer by participating in Daffodil Day. Daffodil Day merchandise is on sale throughout August, and you can donate to Daffodil Day at any time.

 We'd love to see you take inspiration from this board and incorporate items you see and inspire you - perhaps you like love using flowers or leaves on your pages.  Inspired by the vintage book pages or like the rustic flaky paint look. Like rectangles or circle or using a grid pattern? Whatever catches your eye please mention what inspired you on your entry.
