Scraps of elegance guest designer for November

I have the privilege this month for designing for Scraps of elegance, a kit club scrap site that have the most beautifully put-together kits, that are consistantly luscious every month! 

This month it is equally as luscious, je t'aime, using papers from fab scraps and ruby rock it, embellishments from prima, dusty attic and petaloo to name a few. Here it is... but go check it out for yourself at SOE!

Some of the pages I designed with the kit.....

Here is the sketch challenge for November ...
I really love this one...

I softened the colour of the maya road circle chip pieces with cream paint, as I wanted to keep the look of the page soft and feminine, and I also distressed the two sticker titles to keep the look soft, using a file and ink and washed with water.

Just on a personal note, I really love this pic of my gorgeous friend C, it's one of my faves.

Thanks so much for stopping by! ;)xx Jodii

My Summer... OUAS

This is my take on the once upon a... sketch theme 'seasons'.                                I lOVE summer!! feeling the cold like I do, this is one of my fav seasons. These colours remind me of summer, raspberry and lemon, sweet and cool.                                     Journaling is under the zigzag heart and also tucked behind the raised cream cutout to the left....                                                                                                    It says : "Beaches and sand, sarongs and bikinis, warm sun and the sound of waves, sandy toes and brown skin, sea breezes and umbrellas, friends and lovers, laughing and good times, a good read in the afternoon and a feeling of total summer". Picture taken at the start of last summer (pale skin haha) on the south coast of Australia, surf side NSW, my fav beach!

Sweet friend of mine csi 30

 This is my take on SCI case no 30. I used the beautiful Maja papers, did alot of punching and gorgeous prima resin. I used bits and pieces from graphic 45, glitz, transparencies, wood flourishes, flowers and leaves, lace and paint and gesso

I want to be with you tcr#28

I  created this for TCR palette #28. I really like the red with a touch of orange in this palette and enjoyed using these colours.

I've slowed down a bit with creating this month as I've had a busy month with work, and I've also been asked to do some salon training which is still ongoing, in a gorgeous new salon in the city called Zaija...if you live in Canberra go and check it out, as they have a bar with a barista, and their coffee is  AMAZING! The girls are lovely and can help you with anything from hair to beauty to food!

Anyhow I'm sure i'll be out in my studio again soon!

Case file no 28 at CSI.....Silly fun me!

This is my take on the case. 
I used repetition of elements: brown gems, line of pearls around the heart and the pearls on the chain.
I used metal at the top
I used dry embossing on the top of page.
I used circular journaling : around the heart
and I used inspirational words: silly, fun.

This is the palette for the colour room, #118


This is my take on the palette... And its being featured this week! I'm so pleased (and amazed actually). Its a nice feeling to know that it caught the eye of one of the designers.  I've made two features in the last 3 palettes, i'm stoked!
Thanks so much for looking!

This has special meaning for me atm,.. i guess we all go through times when we lose sight of ourselves 

Femme Fatale

Haha the girls! What more can I say!?


I was going for a 'cluttered, use everything you can get your hands on' look for this lo, lol, tho not sure how I really feel about how it turned out...

Simply Devine

This was made for the Cest magnigique july kit. One of my fav kits, colours are yummy. I love alice in wonderland, has such a whimsical, but unusual feel to it....

Cherished moments 


My beautiful friend Rachel, very pregnant here, but still looking lovely.

Perfect day

A high tea I hosted in my garden, was a beautiful girly day, and wanted it felt in my colours in my page. Thanks of looking.


My gorgeous David Austin roses. I washed an iridescent paint mixed with a little white over everything to soften the colours.
