Reveal of Last Kit

It’s FINALLY time to reveal our last kit ever. It has been a LONG wait for these products to arrive, and I am so thankful for our subscribers patience and understanding in this matter.

With this reveal I close the Crazy Monday Kits book. The sale in the shop is still on (use code SALE50 for 50% off all products when spending $10), but there will be no more kits. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to ALL customers & subscribers, old and current, and for all the support I have received from around the world. The scrapbooking industry is a tough business, but it’s filled with amazing people.

So, without further ado, here is the last kit that will make its way to our subscribers starting today:



American Crafts Amy Tangerine “Rise & Shine” Thicker words
Prima Marketing brush stamps
WeR Memory Keepers “Hello Darling” ephemera pack
Freckled Fawn enamel dots

Hi Crazy Monday Fans!

It is with great sadness I hereby inform you that I am closing Crazy Monday Kits.

Thanks to all my loyal customers, it’s been a great ride!

Michelle Tan – November GDT – Part 5

Hiya Crazy Monday Fans,

I recieved a little surprise email from our November GDT this week – she has created another two layouts with our November Scrapbooking Kit!

Thank you Michelle, its great to see just how far one kit can stretch!

Layout 5

This is a small layout for my wedding album (6.25 x 8.25 inches) – As this is not an actual scrapbook per se, I’ve kept the layout pretty simple, just a few small embellishments to draw attention to the photo. I LOVE the flower die cut and I’ve been saving it to use on a special page. The card stock and gold polka dot vellum are not part of the kit.


Layout 6


Layout 6 Detail


I wanted to do another wedding photo layout, so this is the outcome. I love the beautiful striped paper from Amy Tangerine but the problem is I love the other side too! So I decided that I would use just a portion of it in this layout. I used the white card stock as a base and had a cut file (You+Me) lying around so I thought I would use that as a little mask for the background to add interest. I then layered the Amy Tangerine paper along with the gold polka dot vellum (not part of the kit). I knew I wanted to use the poppy cut file from IHeartStudio which I colored with Zig Winks of Stella in Clear and White. I used quite a number of the Teresa Collins stickers on this page as you can see, coupled with the enamel dots.

Once again, a huge thank you to Michelle for creating 6 beautiful layouts to share with us.


🙂 Joanne.

“This is our week” with Annelie – Day 3 & 4

Hi Crazy Monday Fans! Today I’m sharing day 3 & 4 of my “This Is Our Week” album. Here is a run down of what I did:

  • For my album I am using a Studio Calico “Handbook” album that has been collecting dust for a while in my scrap studio.
  • I have of course used the “This Is Our Week” kit from the shop. I’ve also used some old and new shop & kit items, plus Becky Higgins cards from my stash.
  • I took photos with my Instax, and with my iPhone. The iPhone photos were edited in the “PicTapGo” app.
  • The 3×4 photos were made as collages in Becky Higgins Project Life App before I printed them.
  • I printed my iPhone photos on my Selphy.
  • I also dusted off my typewriter and used that for my journaling, and my sewing machine has also got a bit of a workout!
  • I found that the pockets for my album didn’t really hold photos and cards, so I used my Tim Holtz mini stapler to fasten them. Does it bother me? Nope. It’s more important that people can look through the album without things falling out!

OK – here we go:










Michelle Tan – November GDT – Part 4

Hiya Crazy Monday Fans!

Today we have the very last layout from our very last GDT to share with you. Bit of a bittersweet moment!


Layout 4


I love bright colors for my background at times and I love how the black Thickers provides a contrast here. I used I Heart Studio heart frames which I backed with paper from the kit. Then I layered stickers and enamel dots on them.


Layout 4 Detail


Once again, I would like to thank Michelle for being our final GDT. She has done an amazing job and I hope you have loved her work as much as we have.


🙂 Joanne.

Michelle Tan – November GDT – Part 3

Hiya Crazy Monday Fans,

Here’s another beautiful layout from our November GDT, Michelle Tan, featuring a picture from her recent wedding.

Layout 3


This is by far my favorite layout so far! When I opened the kit and saw the papers, I knew I had to scrap at least one wedding photo with this kit. I chose this particular paper as my background as I love the watercolor effect. I use I Heart Studio cut files for the flowers and I honestly can’t remember who the ‘Forever and Ever’ cut file is from. I use Studio Calico Mister Huey to lightly paint over the flowers and leaves to give them a bit of color. I also used the gold Mister Huey to paint a little of the background just to mat the photo. I cut the ‘XO’ from one of the Amy Tangerine papers and stitched around the edges. I also layered the little Teresa Collins sticker and enamel dots on it.


Layout 3 Detail


Thanks Michelle, really looking forward to sharing your final layout in a couple of days.

🙂 Joanne.

Michelle Tan – November GDT – Part 2

Hiya Crazy Monday Fans!

Time for another layout from our November GDT Michelle.

Layout 2


This layout featured the little Polaroid hearts paper again (I just love it!) which I formed a little banner with using the twine. I also lightly outlined the hearts with ZIG Winks of Stella pen. In order to make the photo pop more, I used Studio Calico Mister Hueys to create a bit of a mat for the photo. I didn’t want to overwhelm this layout as the background paper is quite a busy pattern and at the same time, want to focus more on the photo as well.


Layout 2 Detail


Thanks Michelle. It’s been great to see two completely different ways to use the heart polaroid paper.

🙂 Joanne.
