New designs up on Red Bubble!

For those not aware, I have a Redbubble shop. I add to it from time to time, but with my studies the last two years, I haven't had time. I plan on actually getting in to some more t-shirt designs and add some more photography for canvas prints.

For now, checkout what I have up there, there may be some thing that you cannot live with out. Also, there are a few photographs of Hot Rods on there for any eager car enthusiast.

The Kids, new additions and catch ups

Preditor  Many of you who follow me, know about my toy collection. Here are some more that I have photographed. Some are new and others just kept getting forgot when I set up to shoot the "Kids.

There are a few Nerf as well as the new Bubble guns that I found at Target around my birthday.

Predator here was a birthday present back in 2010, however I managed to forget to take photos of him for almost 3 years.

Also finally fixed my Z'GOK model from years ago, who got damaged in transit from Perth.

Some toys have recently however, been donated to charity, time to move them one to a new home.

Holiday Project: Mini Album Present

 A friend I had lost touch with a few years back, announced that she was going to be having a baby with her wonderful husband. I knew she had wanted her own children for a long time due to her own childhood. To give her some thing special to put photos and memories in I decided to make her a mini album.

I hope she likes it.

Holiday Project: The Mini Album #1 Completed

I realised I hadn't posted a photo of the final cover of the first mini Album.

A few better photos of the first completed mini album I made with embellishments and tags.

I will take photos of the second one but those won't go up until the recipient gets it.

Holiday Project: The joys of the Mini Album

I loved working on this project so much I started a second one while still working on the first one. What it is, is a mini album with a Hidden Hinge System from a Kathy Orta tutorial for her All Occasion Mini Album. 

The tutorial for this mini album called for quite a lot of card so, which just seemed a bit expensive. So, I visited my local Officeworks and purchased a 25pk of 210gsm A3 card for only $12. This made this much more economical and as the card was a heavier gsm the hinge and pages turned out a lot more sturdy. 

I loved this album as I was able to use some of the 6x6 inch paper pads I hadn't been able to use much before. For this first one I used my left over Black and White Timeless from Kaisercraft. 

The hidden hinge took demo and a little while to get my brain around. Once I got it though it made perfect sense. With, again, a little modifications, I got it all to work out nicely and I can now also modify it further for my own liking. 

I ended up reworking the cover design Kathy had done for her Mini Album due to not being able to get one of the items she used for the spine. I am actually happier with how mine turned out.  I also chose to use fabric for my spine rather than cardstock, as a friend who was showing how to make this mini album had two spines with card stock crack. The fabric gives a great amount of give ensuring it wouldn't be tight, crack or split.

The finished Product
I have ReAlLy enjoyed this project, and I wish I had more friends to make them for. If there is, however, anyone who is not a papercraft who wants one, please feel free to contact me to order one.

Inked Tattoo #2

Four years ago I got my first tattoo, a cats face I had designed. It was just after my mother's passing and I got it to mark my 30th Birthday.

After the year I have has for 2012 I looked in to getting the tattoo finished and another completed in the other forearm. 
The final result is that I now have two very beautiful cats on my forearms with their tails wrapped around my wrists.
 My New Years Eve was spent scrapbooking my new ink. All that is left is the journaling.
