All things girly ...

OK, I'll admit it, I love pink :-) ... in fact, I planned this whole page around that gorgeous pink LRR felt flower!

You'll also notice a star paper doily (cut in half - on each end of my page) ... these are another fav of mine - they just suit everything!!

Tucked under the flower are a couple of flower cabochons too - how sweet they are :-) :-)

Here's another girly page (based on the Scrap the Girls challenge this month actually!):

tucked in there is a little birdy button :-) :-)
and you'll also spot more star doilies!!  ;-)
Well, that's all from me at the moment, have a great week LRR fans!!!

New tags and a shop update.

Hello there. I just wanted to show you all some of what Ive been working on today.
These new small 2012 calendar cards have already been added to the SHOP along with the following things that sold out in the last sale.............

Lastly here is a sneak peek of one of the 3 new sets of journal cards Ive been working on.
Sorry for the bad photo and this is only 3 cards in the set of 8.

Today I have designed a total of 2 new sets of tags and 3 new sets of journal cards with at least 2 or 3 more in the planning stages.
All of the new tags and journal cards match perfectly with one of our button sets and they will be available in the next sale as little inspiration kits with everything co ordinating beautifully.
I have so far, 4 new button designs for our next sale and most of what we had on offer in the last sale is now available in our store here's the LINK. Bye for now TFL x

A few layouts to share....

Hello Lil' Red Rocket fans.....I hope you are all well :)

It's Linda here for my first LRR post to share a few layouts with you all!  
But firstly I want to say how exciting it is to be a part of this amazing team....and that it is such a joy to be able to work with Shell's gorgeous handmade products! Thanks so much for having me on the team Shell!

Ok, on with some layouts.
First up I have a couple of masculine pages......

"Flat Chat"

Using a LRR denim flower & red heart fabric button....I think these not so traditional male embellies, look fantastic on this very male orientated layout!.....which just goes to show that Lil' Red Rocket embellies are perfect for just about any style of layout..... that's one of the things I love about LRR!!!

And another masculine page....

"Keeping it pinned"

Featuring a LRR orange spotty fabric button & a red checkered "remember" flag...again, perfect embellies to fit in with this masculine themed layout!

And last but not least......

"Lake Hume"....

One of my fav style of layouts.... nature & holiday pics :)
This one features 2 Lil' Red Rocket fabric buttons....a brown spotty one & a cute lil' owl button - I sooo adore these little guys!  aren't they just the cutest?!....along with a gorgeous vintage quote tag - I love these little tags too!  I love the colours in these embellies & how they were just perfect for  this layout!

Okie Dokie....that's all from me for now...until next time, Happy scrapping everyone!

PS. Don't forget to be a follower on the Lil' Red Rocket blog & also like Lil' Red Rocket on Facebook, to keep up to date with all the current news!

Welcome to the LRR DT!

OK so Im popping by to announce the last two talented ladies that will be joining our Design Team.
These two lovely ladies will be starting with us in March so, please make them feel welcome.
Lets begin with Gina................

Gina Rodgers.

My name is Gina and I live in the Huon Valley, Tasmania with my partner Mark and two daughters Rhiannon and Jemma..I've been scrapping for about 4.5 years now and also love making cards and art journaling. I'd describe my style as a little messy with texture, layering and a bit of white space thrown in! I love trying out new techniques and will often use paint, inks, crayons, recycled items, stitching, hand journaling and stamps on my layouts.

Welcome Gina.

Now lets meet Malinda..........

Malinda Gardener.

I’m mum to Isobel (5), Beatrix (22 months) and Henry (6 months) and wife to an amazing husband, Nathan.
I started scrapping about 3 months after Isobel was born, so about 5 years ago. I like to scrap most days, but with 3 kids, that doesn’t happen most weeks. It’s my ME time, my sanity, my creative outlet. I never knew I was creative until I started scrapping, and I only now believe that I am quite good at what I do, well actually not that I am good at what I do, but that I like what I do. I scrap for me and for my family. I do do a lot of challenges, in fact I would say 95% of my scrapping is for challenges, but that’s because I love the actual challenge of doing challenge IYKWIM.
I am lucky enough to have a study that has a scrap table and scrap box kind of thing that Nath made for me in it. So I can leave my mess out and don’t have to pack things up. I’m a messy scrapper, on the page and on the desk! I hate to put stuff away! My style is quite GRUNGY. Lots of paint, lots of embellishments, buttons, ribbon, tags, flowers, clips.
Obviously my main scrapping subjects are my kids, but I love to scrap about other people as well, especially the relationships they have with each other. I love to journal, even though I hate my handwriting, I try to journal on most pages.
My greatest purchase in the latest 5 years would be my Canon 450D and taking the time to learn how to use it and now how to use PS to edit. It’s amazing how different my photos are and then my LOs.

I’m on the CT at Daring you to Scrap, Beyond the Door and Challenge Heaven. I also run Scrap the Girls and am on the DT at Scrapbooking from Scratch and was previously on the DT at Bonsscraps.
I've been published in Scrapbooking Memories, Scrapbooking Creations and Creating Keepsakes. I was awarded an Honourable Mention in the the Masters 2011.

Welcome Malinda
We are so excited to have these 2 lovely and talented ladies join our team.
Stay tuned for their beautiful creations featuring Lil' Red Rocket products beginning March. TFL x

A Challenge or two....

Hi There! Charmane here again!

Today I thought I would share a couple of layouts I have created for Blog Challenges that I am a Creative Team Member for...

I find these Challenges to really get my mojo flowing and to make me think and try different things on my pages...

This first one is for Stuck?! February 1st Sketch - I find sketches the easiest way to make a start on a layout - and having a sketch ensures that the page will be balanced and looking great :)

I have used the cute Lil Red Rocket brown spotty button here...

and also this adorable Lil Red Rocket "sweet" flag - I am loving these cute flags Shell has created!!!

This next one is for White With One for February - and as you can see it's White with Lemon!

So of course....

I had to include one of Shell's Lil Red Rocket Lemon Yellow spotty buttons to the page!

There was one more layout I want to share with you using a couple of Lil Red Rocket embellishments too...

I really love how this layout has turned out, and the Lil Red Rocket embellies were perfect additions to the page!

I have used another cute Lil Red Rocket flag - which I have used as part of my title.... and as you can see I have also used another one of my fave Lil Red Rocket embellies - the red spotty button...

Well.... I hope I have inspired you to use your Lil Red Rocket goodies and maybe even give a Blog Challenge a go too!!!

Thanks for looking!

Love Charmane

Perfectly You!

Hello there. Just thought Id post a LO I made using one of my favourite Red Gingham buttons.
I love to add a fabric button to a cluster of flowers or other embellishments.
They look great center stage or just peeking out from behind.
Here's a close up...

So by now most of you should have your little red rocket sale goodies and we cant wait to see what you do with them so please feel free to share your creations with us on the FACEBOOK PAGE.
Thanks everyone.

Turquoise Fabric Flower!

I am just loving the fabric flowers from Lil' Red Rocket lately! They are so unique and come in a few different fabrics - this one was perfect for this month's challenge over at Scrap The Girls.

I just love how the flower has become the main embellishment on the page,
drawing the eye in to the photo.

Until next time..

Welcome to our newest DT members

We are so excited to introduce you to two of the newest four members of our DT today so with out further adue please extend a warm welcome to EBONY and LINDA YAY!. Time to get to know them a little better.
Lets begin with Ebony Van der Starre

My name is Ebony van der Starre and I love Lil' Red Rocket products!!!
I have been scrapping for nearly 10 years now (yikes!!!) and love everything about this craft!!!
I love scrapping with bright colours and always use paint, mists and lots of embellies on my pages!!! I dont know how to describe my style really...maybe “ecclectic grunge”!!!
I am lucky enough to have been and am on various design teams.
Visit Ebonys blog HERE

Welcome to the team Ebony.
Now lets meet our next new DT member Linda Eggleston
About myself: I am married to Dave with 2, supposedly, grown up kids, Kate 22 & Joel 19. I live in the Central West of NSW, and wouldn't want to be anywhere else :). I work part time at a busy rural medical practice, and when I'm not working, you can usually find me creating in my scrap room :). I've been scrapping for about 8 years....and I'm positively certain that I am totally addicted!
My Style: I don't know if I have a particular style, as it is always changing & evolving. All sorts of things help determine what style direction my layout is going to take....from my photos, to the products being used, and even the challenge or sketch that I might be participating in.
Visit Lindas blog HERE.

Welcome Linda.
We are so excited to have these two talented ladies joining our team.
We will be back soon to introduce you to our last two new DT members. Thanks for joining us to welcome Ebony and Linda. TFL x
