But first; please meet the new Social Media Guru for Crazy Monday Kits:

Joanne Care


Hi everyone, I’m Joanne and I live in Taranaki with my husband and nearly 5 year old daughter. I’ve been Scrapbooking for 8 years, but I really got into it when I was pregnant. Nowadays I keep an annual pocket-page scrapbook and do 12×12 pages of anything I feel like.  I’m looking forward to working with Annelie here at Crazy Monday and can’t wait to get to know you all!

I’m thrilled to have Joanne onboard! I will still be active on the web, but Joanne will be a great help to keep everything more up to date! Welcome Joanne!

And so for the

Today I’m sharing a LO that I put a lot of love in 🙂 I used the cut file “Pie Hearts” from The Cut Shoppe, only I made one heart REALLY big 🙂 Then, as you can see I used a few different patterned papers from the July kit “Orange is the New Black” to fill it up, did some sewing and went on putting a few embellishments on (most of them from the kit). Love the July kit’s plethora of embellishments!

Social Media Position Available

Hi Crazy Monday Fans!

I am looking for someone to help me out with the Crazy Monday Kits blog, Facebook page and Instagram account.

It’s far from a full time job, but it’s something I find myself not having enough time to do whilst planning & packing the kits and sorting the shop orders.

I am looking for someone who has a lot of knowledge about the scrapbooking & crafty world, a computer and social media extraordinaire. A bit of common sense and general service mind wouldn’t go amiss either.

As this is a small company, this is not a paid position, but there will be compensation in form of product and/or discounts. This will be decided together with the person who takes on the role.

I require this person to be in New Zealand for ease of communication.

If you’re interested, please email me on

Thank you!



Love This

Today I’m sharing a LO I did for sketch #273 over at Creative Scrappers.


I started with gel medium that I had mixed with some drops of orange mist, used on a mask I did from a cut file from The Cut Shoppe. The cut out “triangles” were then used as embellishments on the page. And the “Love This” 3×4 card is also from The Cut Shoppe.

I added some black mist splatters as well, but rverything else is from the July kit “Orange is the New Black”. Hope you like!

Yes, hello

Last weekend I participated in an on-line crop, and scrapped my little heart out for a couple of days. Love it when that happens! For one challenge I pulled out the new July kit “Orange is the New Black”, and this is the result. A few little bits from the shop and from my own stash was used as well. Enjoy!
