A blog revamp and a new post

OK you might need to get a cuppa before you read this post... so much to share!

I have been busy with a bit of a revamp on my blog and I hope you all like it.  I added some helpful tabs for for those looking for something in particular when it comes to my work.  I'm also going to be trying to keep up more regular posts.  I have had a few computer issues this year that have really hindered that, but with most of that sorted, I'm finding some chill computer time more of a reality.

Anyway, with all that said, here are some new shares of my recent creative adventures... well if you can call it that.

First up is some exciting news on my recent Magazine Cover!  I was over the moon to hear when I got the cover of the current Australian Scrapbook Ideas Magazine, and even more with it being a family photo.  Definitely a BIG keepsake for me.
These are the layouts that were part of my monochromatic white feature.  Be sure to check out the Magazine for the full instructions to create each one.   




I have also been busy creating for Down Under Direct, and here are some of my recent work.  I have some great posts coming up this month including a step by step tutorial on creating flower vines completely out of paper.  So be sure to regurlarly check the blog to see all the fantastic inspiration being shared by all the talented ladies on the team.   Here is my recent work:
















I've also been busy having a play with some Helmar goodness....  This week we have been doing a feature on Helmar Decopage and Craft Paste.  This product is awesome, and this is the project I created.  Head on over to the blog for more creative ideas on how to use Helmar Decopage and Craft paste as well as some more information on what I did to create this 6x6 canvas here.


I have also been busy having a play with Susan Weckesser's awesome papers and Helmar, to create this layout and a couple of cards.  Again, have a look here for more details about my creation


 


Well, I hope you have enjoyed my share today.  Don't forget to have a look through the tabs if you are new to my blog or if you want to re-cap on some of my previous creations.

Hey Beck, I have the magazine with your LO on the cover - I meant to email you and congratulate you! So awesome stuff Beck. Your LO's in the magazine are beautiful - the white looks fabulous.
I love the layout about Austin being a pre-schooler ... see I can remember so clearly when you announced at work you were pregnant and now he's 3!!! Yes time does fly when you have your little boys - such a wonderful experience. Also your journalling - it's a great way to keep track of the milestones. xo
