Hi.My name is Rina.I am a South African living in the gorgeous Newfoundland,Canada. I started scrapbooking when my miracle baby was born! Holly is my inspiration!She is a happy-go-lucky little girl! Scrapbooking gives my imagination wings!

Portraits of the Past

The sad thing  in life, is that we have to say good bye to people we love. People that meant the world to you.People that left a hole in your heart…But we will always adore them! They will be in our hearts forever! That is way I love photographs! It stop time,freezes it in place….When my Parents-in-Law passed away,we got a box of old photos!! This is one of my favorite photos…

This is my Father- in Law when he was about 2 years old….long,long ago…

‘Portraits of the Past’DSC_0947

I thought the Bo Bunny ‘Timepiece’ collection was perfect for the photo of my Father-in-Law. Here he is about 2 years old – in 1933. Just adorable!

IMG_0641I made the paper flowers to compliment my layout…..


Making the flowers : Circle punch and a small flower punch,ink pads and glue.. You need to punch 2 circles (or cut by hand) and about 5 little flowers per flower. Ink one of the circles in the middle,I used yellow… Cut your circles in to ‘petals’,spray with water and scrunch up,leave to dry…..then unfold carefully. Shape and fold your ‘petals’ to your liking and the put your flower together. First you flower that’s not inked,then your inked flower,then your 5 little flowers….make sure they overlap….end with the very last little flowers still in a ‘bud’…let the glue dry and fix it to your project…

Thank You for looking

Till next time!


There are just so much inspiration out there… I am inspired by my gorgeous little girly and the beautiful scrap paper collections and embellishments. It can just make your imagination go wild….. This Layout is a ‘fairy tail’… My little baby is entering a wide,big world. She is out to explore all that’s on offer out there….

I am using Kaisercraft ‘Base Coat’ collection. It is just beautiful….



I tore the one sheet ‘Concrete’ and glued it over the second page ‘ Rock’. To ink the edges,I used the inkpads from Ingvild Bolme. To set my girly on a beautiful adventure of exploring,I added Prima flowers ‘Mini Sachet Sunrise’ (blue), ‘Soubrette’ (white) and a vine from the ‘Engraver’ collection. The Prima lamp is guiding her…I love the resin pieces at the bottom. The Petaloo butterflies will keep her company…. To make the ‘wall’ look a bit more ‘real,I added some Rub-on words….

This is what Fairy tales are made off…
