And Relax...

Back with a dinky card today. This is a mix and match card where I mixed up my old stash. The images are from a couple of Hello Bluebird stamp sets. The papers are older Lawn Fawn and K and Co, the trusty border punch is Martha Stewart, and the little banner is one I use a lot from Crafter's Companion's Shabby Chic range.

I coloured the images with my Spectrum Noir Triblends. Hope you like it - the bunny looks very chilled out lol! x

Festive Florals



Morning Everyone!

I decided that I'd better get going on building a little Christmas Card stash so I dug out an old free stamp set called Christmas Florals by Pink Fresh that came with a back issue of Creative Stamping magazine.

 I don't know why I have never used this stamp set as its lovely, but I decided to stamp and colour the images with my Spectrum Noir Triblends, fussy cut the images and layer up on a snowflake embossed white card for a bit of texture and dimension. I popped this on a red glitter card background, added a sentiment, a bit of Stickles, and job done. Two in the bag for my stash! lol!

Hope you like them - this style is easy to create with similar stamps that you may have :)

Family Portrait


Just thought I'd share a scrapbook page I've made using the lovely Crafters Companion Caring Thoughts collection. I 'vintaged' the papers up a little bit to suit my photo of my Great Great Grandparents 'The Hall's - with one of their sons. The base layer is one of the patterned vellums.

I wanted to use one of the Caring Thoughts frames so I cut my photo to fit. I layered up the papers, ripped and inked the edges, and tucked in a little bit of vintage lace. I then added plenty of fussy cut flowers from the papers before finishing with some Nuvo Drops. Hope you like it!

Gnome Party


Afternoon All!

Just popping by to share a slimline card I've made using the lovely Gnomes from Hello Bluebird. They make such a happy, fun scene. I coloured them with my Spectrum Triblends and inked the background with Harmony Inks.

Hope you like it!

Farm Life Cards


Hi Everyone!

Today I dug out some Mintay papers from my stash called Farm Life and had fun fussy cutting some of the lovely images.

 I decided to make four little cards and even added a bit of the lovely scraps of paper to my envelopes.

I made them look like a set by adding matching ribbon, a punch border and a similar layout on each one.

Hope you like them!

Sweet Swans


Afternoon All!

Just thought I'd share another little card I made with Lawn Fawn's Swan Soiree set. This time I made them into a Valentine's Card, but it would just as easily be perfect for an anniversary card too.

The papers are also Lawn Fawn from the Polka in the Dark pad. I coloured my images with my Spectrum Noir Classiques and decorated the inside to match.

Hope you like it - I'd like to enter it in the following challenge:

Martha and Mum


Today I thought I'd share a scrapbook page for a change. I love researching my family history and have lots of old photos so I've decided I need to copy and scrapbook a few more so that family in the future know who the people are.

I've decided to go with A4 layouts again as they are easier to store. I have just basic info on the front as all the details are printed on the back.

This photo is of my lovely mum as a very young girl, with her Gran, Martha. I used mainly Crafter's Companion papers from the Garden of Love range, fussy cutting the flowers, adding ribbon and a punched border, and the diecut sentiment.

Hope you like it!
