Beautiful Girl

Good Afternoon,

Just a quick post to share my latest layout I have created for Funky Flairs 'N' Flowers.

On this layout I've used a Funky Calico Flower with a flair from the 'Love' range.

This was a fun layout to create - I'm loving this new range of papers from Kaisercraft, and the Calico Flower with this flair matched perfectly.  And who wouldn't love scrapping this gorgeous little girl (my niece).

A Different Kind of Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago, I was approached by the beautiful Marelle, and asked to take part in a different kind of blog hop.  Of course I said yes !!  It's not your normal blog hop, but one where you get to share a little about yourself and meet some new scrappers that you might not already know.

I first met Marelle when we worked together on the Molossi Design Team.  And who would've know that we only live 20 minutes from each other lol !!!  Marelle is a gorgeous lady, lots of fun and a constant inspiration to my scrapping.  Thanks Marelle for inviting me to take part.  Check out Marelle's blog here ....

Here's a little more about me;

1.  What am I working on right now??

I am currently working on a layout for the D-Lish Scraps monthly challenge.  I couldn't resist this challenge, as it includes two of my favourite colours .... kraft cardstock and red!! 
I've also just finished a few layouts for D-Lish Scraps 5th Birthday Cyber Crop, which was so much fun.

2.  How long does it take to create a layout??

Hmmmm, every layout is totally different for me.  Sometimes an idea will come quickly, and I could whip up a layout in under an hour.  However, a lot of the time, I stress over what I'm going to create and it can take hours.  I shuffle papers from one side of the desk to another, and a lot of the time, I come back to the original concept lol !!

3.  What are my favourite things to create with?

That's easy !!   Heidi Swapp and My Mind's Eye .... they would have to be two of my most favourite ranges at the moment. 

4.  What inspires me?

I'm inspired by so many things.  I love to hop around blog sites to see what everyone is up to.  I also love to follow challenges as they certainly help kick off the creative process in my mind. 
I have my own little craft room now, and it's great to put the kids to bed and hide away and craft the night away.  I put on a movie, and I'm set for the night!!  Here's a of pic of my craft space.

5.  What is my signature style?

This is a hard question, but I think my style is fairly neat and tidy.  I don't do a lot of "messy" backgrounds, although I am starting to push myself to try new things, and using sprays, texture pastes, etc. is something I'd like to do.   I have also spent a lot of time recently making cards, so I enjoy both cards & layouts and switch between the both quite regularly.
My other favourite style is Project Life pocket style albums, and this allows me to have uniformity in my albums, but embellished as much or as little as I choose.


Below are the next two ladies that are going to follow me in the Blog Hop, with their posts going up on their blogs shortly.

Dana Tatar .....

I met Dana through the Molossi Design Team, and really love Dana's style and creativity.  I love seeing her work, and you can check it out on her blog too.  Thanks for playing along Dana :)

Michelle Sheehan ......

I've only just recently met Michelle, and we'll be working together soon ...... shhh, secret scrappy business !!!!  As I've just started following Michelle's blog, I'm enjoying getting to know her style and can't wait to be inspired by her creations.  Thanks to you also Michelle for playing along.


Well, thanks everyone for stopping by and taking the time to read a little more about me.  I'm looking forward to blog hopping along with everyone else, and learning more about you all.

Cheers, Honor xo

D-Lish Scraps Challenge #1

Good Afternoon everyone,

I didn't think I'd get another chance to join in the D-Lish Scraps Birthday Cyber Crop, but YAY!! I found some time this afternoon.

My son and I saw a local production of Mother Goose this morning, and he had such a great time.  I think he's finally feeling a little worn out these holidays, and he's having some quiet time while I have a chance to "play".

Thanks Tarrah for this challenge, it was lots of fun.

Thanks for stopping by,

Another Layout for D-Lish Cyber Crop

Good morning everyone,

Just a quick post this morning before I take my little man to the movies to see How To Train Your Dragon 2.  It's a rainy day here today, so perfect for some inside fun.

Here is my take on Ros' challenge #6 over at D-Lish Scraps for their 5th Birthday Cyber Crop.  This one was fun to do - I think the hardest part was choosing which Bingo line I wanted to use.  If you'd like to play along, head over to their blog now and see what inspires you.

Unfortunately I don't have any D-Lish products as yet, but I'm sure I'll be making my very first order soon !!

Sorry for the photo, it's very dull here today and hard to get a good pic.

The Bingo line I chose was metal charm, tag, flowers, flairs and banner.

Thanks for stopping by.

D-Lish Scraps 5th Birthday Bonanza Cyber Crop

Hi everyone,

Although I've had a very busy weekend with the family, it's been fun to pop in and see what everyone's been up to over at D-Lish Scraps.  It's their 5th birthday, and they've been celebrating with a Bonanza Cyber Crop. 

I finally found some time this afternoon to play along with their Challenge set by Leanne, and I had such a great time creating.  It's been quite a while since I've done a layout, so that was a challenge in itself.  But following Leanne's recipe was a great way to get back into the swing.

Here is my layout;

I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.

It's Honor here, and today I want to show you some ways to use your left overs or scraps of paper, allowing you to get the most use out of your gorgeous papers.
I had a lot of scrap pieces of Kaisercraft's Base Coat range.  I love this range so much, that I couldn't bring myself to throw away any of the scraps !!
I decided to make a few gift tags using the left over pieces, and by adding a few flowers, and some embellishments, I now have gift cards ready for anytime I might need one.

Even after making these gift tags, I had more left over scraps, so I decorated this Kraft gift bag as well.  There's always plenty of things you can do with your scraps - what do you like to do with yours??
All the products I've used can be found in Molossi's online store.

Today is a big day over at Molossi. As you would have seen around, there has been some teasing, and today is the day we share with you both good and sad news.  

On behalf of everyone at Molossi we would like to thank the outgoing Chipboard team for their support, creativity and friendship. Thank you so much Leanne, Gail and Joanne, for your inspiration and creativity. We hope you have been inspired by these fabulous ladies, they have created some amazing projects using Molossi products and will be greatly missed. We wish them all the best their future creative endeavours.
Now no more teasing, no more sneaks...... time to share with you Molossi's first ever Mood Board Challenge.
A challenge is valid from the 1st of the month with some criteria and the entries are due the last day of the month being the 31st of May 2014.




We accept scrapbook pages/layouts & canvases.  We also accept art journal double spread pages or single Art Journal pages, along with Cards and Off the Page creations.
We do not accept digital entries, ATCs, or tags.


Please create unique entries for our Molossi Mood Board challenge. They must not be submitted for any other online challenges, and they are not to be combined with other challenges.


You need to be a blog owner to play  (so you can link up to your blog).
Please don't link up to galleries as often this is problem for our design team. We are not members of the same gallery & therefore cannot gain access easily, and leave you comments.


Please do not link to your entire blog as this makes it difficult to find your post & therefore could result in us being unable to comment on or judge your entry.


Then add your NAME & COUNTRY to your title on the Inlinkz tool on the right hand side bar of Molossi's blog.


It is open to Australian and internationals contestants. The Prize is a $40 product pack plus postage. Judging will take place after the close of the challenge by the design team. All decisions are final.

Kaisercraft Base Coat

Hi, here is a quick card I've created using lots of goodies that can be found in the Molossi online store.
I've used the Kaisercraft Base Coat range to make this card, with the base made from cream cardstock.

The flowers are from the Manorhouse 'Melissa' range, embellished with Flourish With A Bling.
"Dream" is a pre-cut Manorhouse word, available in both black & white and can be coloured to suit your project.
I hope you're all having a lovely day, and find some time for creating today.

Hello everyone,
No sooner have we recovered from Christmas & school holidays, and Easter is just around the corner.
What will you all be doing to celebrate with your family?
We will be lucky enough to have my husband's parents visit for a week or so.  Our kids love having them visit us, as they only get to see them once or twice a year, so you can imagine how excited they are at the thought of them coming!!  We will also be spending our Good Friday supporting the Royal Children's Hospital here in Melbourne, by attending the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at the Werribee Mansion.  This is always an awesome day, supporting a fantastic cause.
So I'm here today to share with you, two Easter cards I've made.
The first card is a Magnolia stamp, that I've coloured with Copic Markers.
I've stamped on Blending Card, with Memento Ink.
The roses are Molossi paper roses (white), and I've coloured this with Copic Markers also, to match the image.  The base cardstock is Violet & Lavender, and embellished with Flourish with A Bling Silver Rhinestones "Elise".

The second card is also a Magnolia stamp, again coloured with Copic Markers.  I've stamped on Blending Card with Memento Ink.
The paper roses have again been coloured with Copic Markers to match the papers.  The punched edge is a Martha Stewart punch, and the ribbon & patterned papers (on the card above), are from my scrap stash.

The butterfly is an embossed foil sticker from Molossi, and I've raised the image using Paper Xtra 3D foam dot adhesives. 
Don't forget Molossi also have all your adhesive needs, like
XPress It Tape and 450 Glue.


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a beautiful Easter

Special Times

Hello everyone,
It's been a great couple of days here for crafting, the sun is hiding, and I'm here to share with you my latest card.

I've made this card using Kaisercraft's Base Coat range, which I love working with.  This card could be used for any number of occasions.
The base of the card is made from brown cardstock, and cut into a fancy fold card.  This was fun to make, and very easy.
I've embellished the card using Flourish with A Bling, Green Tara Paper String and Butterfly Critters.
I've also highlighted the bricks in the paper, by cutting out individual bricks, distressing the edges, and foam mounting them on the front of the card.

The star of this card is the gorgeous flower from Manorhouse
that I have highlighted the centre with "Ice Blue" Stickles, and the sentiment is a Paper Xtra rub-on.
Thanks for stopping by,

Molossi DT - Kaisercraft's Base Coat


Hi, today I'm sharing a card I've made from Kaisercraft's "Base Coat" collection, showing you that you can make a card from just one piece of paper.
The base of the card is brown cardstock, and the remainder of the card is made from Kaisercraft's Base Coat "Whitewash".  I've used both sides of the paper, and layered the card, distressing the edges.  This paper is so versatile, and makes great male cards, that I sometimes struggle with.
The paper string is from Green Tara, and Flourish With A Bling is Pewter "Grace".
The metal flower and leaf is from my stash, and suited the paper perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by,
