Black White and Orange Scrap Layout

Ok so after i posted the second picture on this blog, i then decided to add to the original layout. I added a pearl flourish. I still felt like something was missing, and that the flourish seemed a little 'Dull', so i got out my good ol' Black Opal Kindy Glitz and glitz up the flourish :-) I loved the end result- this picture.

I made this layout for the White with 1  September chalenge, and also the Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch challenge. This is my 6 month old little man- Will. I love this photo of him, and love how the layout realy brings out the photo.I wanted the phot to be the centerpeice of this layout, cause i love this pic so much. The only problem is the quality of the photo unfortunantly- it was 10 pm when i took it.

New projects

I finished 2 projects today- a new trinket box and a wall plaque for my sons room.
I really like the way the box turned out too- the colours are great. I used another kaisercraft collection (yea my fave brand lol).

Tealight candle holder

I just finished my first kaisercraft tealight holder. I have to say I'm a bit hooked. Such a great beyond the page project.
I used the magic happens range- quickly turning into a favourite of mine. Embellished with blooms, bling and my (lovely) twinkling H2os.

Latest Creation

I made this desk organiser just the other night. I dont often get to use girlie/pretty papers, seeing as i have 2 boys that are mostly always my scrapping subjects, so i really enjoyed putting this together.
I used papers and embellishments my favorite brand Kaisercraft. I just love their blooms and new Collectables.

My Crafty Creations

Chrissi's Custom Made Crafts
"Handmade custom crafts. Make great gifts. Jewellery boxes, Trinket boxes, Wall and door plaques and many other wood crafts.Any colours and themes, made to order."

The Box that Started in All
I made this trinket box one night and i posted it on facebook in my scrapbooking album. A friend saw it and loved it. She asked if i was selling them cause shed love to buy one. I told her sure she coud buy it. Then she asked me to make another for her Aunts bday- i was more then happy. I made a plaque for my new baby, and a few other boxes aswell while i was in the crafty mood. 
With my firends idea in mind I decided i might give selling my stuff a go. I made a facebook page- and Chrissi's Custom Made Crafts was born. :-)

Im having so much fun making new things and selling them on my page. I custom make anything people might want, anything thats on my page. I can customise any project- colours, themes, papers, embellishments. Ive already had a few orders for a few trinket small boxes and those customers have been really happy wih the result.

Long time no chat

As always its been far to long. Alots happened, as it does as time goes by.
We now have a new member in the family, young master William- now 4 months old, how time flys. Cooper is doing great, Autism cant hold that little boy down :-)
Ive recently discovered Pinterest- soooo addicitve, have had to drag myself away just to post here. And of course theres always the iphone/ipad and its infinant amount of Apps, again very addicitve. Ive just learnt that Blogger has an app for the iphone, which will make keeping up with my blog so much more easier- or so i hope :-)
Weve recently just moved, and i now have my own 'space inside, in a study like area. Im getting right back into my crafting. Funnily enough i havent done a whle lot of scrapping, but lots of beyond the page stuff. I LOVE kaisercraft- my fave brand. And they have a great range of off the page stuff- im hopelessly addicted. Ive been putting some stuff together using their fabulous stuff, and have even recently sold a few things to some friends.
That was when i was hit with my brain wave. I created a facebook page- cause everyone is on facebook of course, and have started a little business of sorts, if you can call 'crafting in your spare time and hoping someone likes it enough to say ill have one of those' a business.

Id love it if you came on by, had a looksie, and if your on facebook, like and share my page.

Christmas Pic and Scrap the Boys layout.

This is the first layout ive done in a long time. Things have gotten away form me and i havent had alot of time to scrap. But after i saw this photo of my little man i had to scrap it.
Every year we TRY and get a santa pic. Try being the pivotel word. we've only succeded the year he was born, due to the fact he was 6 weeks old lol.
 My little man was recently diagnosed with Autism. So we decided to take him to see santa to see if he could get use to him and eventually get a photo. We werent expecting a photo, and it didnt bother us if we didnt get one last year. We just wanted to try. So we took him down to visit santa. We explained to santa that he had Autism and santa was amazing with him. He sat back and had a chat to him and made him feel comfortable. We left and said we'd see santa next time we were in the shops. My little man decided toplay on the cars while i was talking to my mum and sister outside santas work shop. Next thing we knew my little man walked up to santa all by himself, sat on his lap and smiled for the camera. we couldnt believe it. We told the photographer to just snap away and the result was this fantastic pic. Not only is it a mission to get him to look a a camera but to smile aswell, we couldnt believe it. The whole moment was amazing, we were floored. A week later i went and told santa thankyou and how greatful i was and that i believed it was the people he encounters that make the difference in making him feel comfortable. Even more amazing santa remembered my little man.
Ive decided to enter this layout into the Scrap the boys challenge. I dont usually enter my Layouts in challenges but i thought i should give it a go form now on.
