Last share from Michelle Frisby

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Michelle Frisby for the amazing work she did with the April kit. So much inspiration! And isn’t it great how much you can actually do with ONE monthly kit? Today we get the last project from Michelle, a fantastic LO. In Michelle’s own words:

Another layout to share … I’ve cut out some of the film strip paper and cut the paper into the film strips and laid it down randomly on my backing 12×12 patterned paper.  I’ve grabbed a glimmermist and merrily sprayed away.


I’ve removed film strips and waited for my paper to dry.  I’ve then randomly placed my strips as a background, added muslin, corrugated cardboard from the handy pizza box – want not, waste not and then  I have cut out numerous pictures from the camera paper and used these as layers.  I have punched out two tags and tucked them under my photos to use as journalling spots. Then I have adhered a piece of the chipboard film strip over my photos, to try and lose some of the background people, shall we say whilst highlighting the photo of my daughter.


I’ve run a key metal die through my Cuttlebug and tied two of them together with twine … why did I do that and randomly leave them sitting on my layout … to remember that photos are the key to remembering so many special moments in our lives in years to come … the photos are quite often the trigger to those memories.

So that’s it … my kit is all but gone … a few bitsers left over, not many to be honest, but I’m quite partial to playing with the bitsers and adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that to make those bitsers go just a little bit further.

If you love what you have seen in this month’s kit [and you should] and think to yourself, what do I have to do to snaffle one of these kits every month without having to worry about missing out … flick Annelie an email and ask her to put one aside with your name on it or flick her an email if you want to go on the waiting list.  I’m not quite sure if she has any spots available at the moment to become a subscriber, but if you don’t ask, you won’t know – she may even have a couple of ‘casual’ kits available.  Ask her, go on, you know you want to!!!!

Honestly with the goodies that came in my pizza box with April’s kit, you truly won’t be disappointed.

A huge thank you Annelie for inviting me to guest design with Crazy Monday Kits this month.  It has been both an honour and a privilege.  It truly has.

Thank you …

Happy creating everyone.

Easel card from Michelle

Okay, so I have to admit something … I told a little white lie, just a little fib … remember I said that I wasn’t going to make an easel card … well I did.

 A very simple card, just using up some off-cuts – I’ve backed some of the wee sayings from the stickers … smile, point, shoot … added a little foam mount tape and voila.

 Just because.



Heart Shaped Treat Box form Michelle Frisby

I’m back with a quick wee project.

 Remember that music paper that I cut out from the middle of my layout from a few days ago – well it was put to good use.


I’ve cut out a heart shape as well as a butterfly using some of my Memory Box metal dies.  I’ve painted the background paper of the butterfly using a Heidi Swap color shine spray and then truly, I’ve added some leftovers that were sitting on my scrap mat to embellish.  I’ve cut a strip to hang my heart shaped treat box and then added a little bakers twine as well.

 Just the right size to pop in a little choccie treat for a friend to make them smile and let them know that I was thinking of them.  How do I know, because I popped in some Easter choccie treats last week and it did just that … brought a smile.

 Happy creating everyone.

Knock knock?

I’m back  … I’ve been busy creating with the contents of Crazy Monday Kits – April kit.  Has yours arrived?  Did you stalk the courier man?

Now you can see why I’ve been busy … there is a whole lot of scrappy goodness to be creative with in this month’s pizza box. 

Let me share another layout that I have put together with this month’s kit.

 I’ve scrapped photos of my daughter from a recent visit to Hobbiton … how cool would it be to visit there? 


 The background on this layout is the music paper as you can see and a wee hint … I’ve cut a big square out of this paper to use elsewhere and covered it with cardstock and then I’ve cut two sections of my next piece of patterned paper.  I’ve then used modeling paste and another stencil, although most of it I seem to have covered up on this layout, but it is there, promise!


I’ve then layered with a little muslin, I’ve tucked under another one of those gorgeous wee bags and a peg and at the moment, I just can’t seem to get enough of those cute wee doilies.  On this layout I have cut one of them in half, to make it go just that little bit further.  I’ve grabbed two toothpicks from the kitchen cupboard and made two wee flags as well.


Knock, knock … is anybody home?


Happy creating everyone.


Hello card from Michelle



Some of you know that I have a fondness for cards, easel cards in particular, but this time I decided not to make an easel card, just for a change.


I’ve whipped up this card, really in no time at all.  The hot glue gun did most of the work, a little dab here and there between the layers and voila … just like that … a card to send a scrappy friend, just to say ‘hello’.


 The only extras that I have added to this card; some more black cardstock, a little twine and some muslin and on the inside of my card, some plain white paper.  Couldn’t resist popping on some bling on the wee camera cut out.





More inspiration from Michelle Frisby

Michelle has been creating up a storm with the April kit “Picture Perfect”. And I’m not exaggerating one little bit. You will definately get your monies worth in the inspiration department this month! Check this out:

Hi, it’s Michelle back to share another layout that I have put together showcasing the fabulous April kit from Crazy Monday Kits.


So, let’s go.

 For the base, I’ve used black cardstock and I’ve used a Kaisercraft stencil [doily template], my trusty finger and some modelling paste.  After the modelling paste dried, I lightly tapped over an ink pad – a pastel pink shade.  I’ve cut a strip of black cardstock and run it through my Cuttlebug and I’ve used a Memory Box die to achieve the scallop edge.


Then, well then I’ve layered – a piece of corrugated cardboard from my pizza box, some muslin, doilies, a piece of packaging from the pearls and one of those gorgeous wee bags – ooh-la-la, throw in a tag with a little journaling, as marked with a peg – how cute is that?  A few leafy die cuts, these too are Memory Box dies and I’ve also handmade some flowers from the patterned paper, scrunched them a little and lightly swiped over the same ink pad … the stamens though I dug out from my stash that have been there forever and voila … tea for two anyone?


Annelie has been busy packing your monthly kits, so keep an eye out for the courier van.  Won’t be long … and you too can play, oops, be creative with the contents of this fabulous kit.

Happy creating everyone.
