January kit share from Beata

More from the lovely Beata to inspire you today:




Do you like patterned papers? I love them. It’s so great to mix them with a neutral base. But I was a little afraid to connect two papers with very intense patterns. I took the risk and… I like the effect. That’s so amazing how all the colors from the January Kit fit each other.
I added some lovely alphabeths and a word from Studio Calico collection. And I love this Polaroid frame. Photo looks much better with it.
Here in Poland we have lots of snow now. It’s even hard to walk the streets. That’s why I’m not so in love with winter. And do you like snow?





Last share from Hayley and the December kit

I think we can all agree that Hayley Stewart did an amazing job with the December kit. Here is her last share. Thanks Hayley for all your inspiration!

I had so many bits and pieces left that I really liked and wanted to use so I put together a few cards that I can use for my Project Life or for my December Daily.







Annelie I just loved this kit, I felt like I could just go on and on and on. It was brilliant and I had so much fun with it.
Thanks for having me!

Please welcome our GDT for January



My name’s Beata and I’m from Warsaw, Poland. My blog is: and in blog world I’m known as Lejdi.
I’ve been a scrapbooker for about 3 years now. I love vibrant colors (pink is my favourite!) and I like to mix them with white and grey. I’m also so into recycling so I try to make my work using scrapbooking papers and things that I can find around me.
My favourite activity is making LOs, but I also like mini albums a lot.
When I don’t craft, I’m a journalist. I love words, so titles are very important on my creations too.


I love this first LO from Beata, can’t wait to see what else she will create!


When I saw January kit, I could only call it a “dream kit”. It’s everything that I love! Colors (pink!), grey, cool alphabets, lovely words. It couldn’t be better!
I started to work right after opening the package.

This photo has been waiting for it’s chance for about 2 months and finally I was motivated to use it. I was having fun with my friends in photo-booth so I kne what would be the title of this LO. I love these transparent words from Studio Calico!

I used lovely dotted paper as a background, so the rest is quite neutral. I arranged a paper filled with words with a page from the magazine. I added some grey  washi and a small stain of colour – yellow twine.

I can’t wait to use this lovely colorful kit again!




Due to low numbers I have had to make the call to cancel the Crop & Class day in Orewa in February. Hopefully the interest will be higher for another day later in the year.

Thanks to everyone who DID register. I will email you all shortly and sort out the repayment of the registration fee, for those who has already paida that.

LO-kits including instructions by Hannah Blair & Michelle Whorwood will be sold on the blog at a later time.

More December inspiration from Hayley

Hi everyone! You have hopefully received the colourful January kit by now! Unfortunately this month’s GDT has not! But luckily, Hayley has more to share from the December kit. She totally amazed me with her creativity with this kit, here is another LO for you to be inspired by!

christmas season

I love these Elle’s Studio papers, I really adore papers with text, it’s one of my things. So I cut some strips of varying widths and lined them up until I found something I liked. That first one is the retail strip from one of the papers which I just had to use. I knew I wanted to use this photo but actually include another picture and my journaling somewhere so when I adhered my photo I only stuck the three sides – instant pocket!
I changed the colour of my birds by pushing them into my red distress ink pad. I also adjusted the colour of my title and journal block with distress ink as it was just too white to go with these cream based papers.
