One for the ladies

Good evening everyone, and thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday. Today I thought I would do something for the ladies, so here it is:

Open


Closed



Decided to do an Easel card and use the post-it as a stopper.  Although it is not easy to see, the backing paper is from the 'Beautiful' collection by Papermania.  The swirl is a Marianne die and the butterflies are from the Pappillion set from Spellbinders.  Just added a few gems to bling it up a little bit.  I covered the front of the post-its with the same 'Beautiful' papers because I didn't think you would want to see canary yellow post-its with the turquoise!!! lol

Hope to be back soon with something else x

Two for One?

Hi everyone, hope you are all well, the sun has finally appeared, but it is blowing a gale!  I have two projects for you today, here they are:


One, as you can see is a Christmas decoration, which I made with a poinsettia stamp from visible image and the sentiment came from them too.  I coloured the flowers with promarkers and the mirri and ribbon I had in my stash.

The second one (sorry you can't see inside!) is a Post-it holder.  The paper is a denim pack but I can't remember who from, and the motorbike stamp is from visible image.  I used baker's twine, and a charm from Mei Flower.  Thought this would be an ideal stocking filler/gift for a man.
Here is the link to go see what stamps they have available:

Take care till next time x

You're so classic

Hi everyone, I cannot believe it's been two weeks since I last blogged.  My back garden has had a makeover, so I thought I had better do something about the inside too! lol

Anyway, onto a simple card I made yesterday, but was too tired to blog!


I started with a white card blank, then matted with black shiny card from Clarity Stamps. Next I stamped the background map which is from Indigo Blu.  Finally the car and sentiment are from Visible Image:

Hope you like it -  will be back soon x

Hello everyone, hope today finds you well.  It's time for a new challenge over at :

The theme is 'Back to School'
It can be a card, a scrapbook page or whatever you would like to make, provided it fits the theme:

The sponsor is Indigo Blu so the prize is two of their stamps

Here is what I came up with:


Both of these were designed with Serif and I just decoupaged certain elements.

We look forward to seeing your entries,  and good luck x

All neat and tidy

Well, at last I have been crafting, haven't done so since 14th August! There has been a lot of stuff going on in the past few weeks, so haven't felt like crafting.  Anyway, here is today's offering:


It is a folder I made to house my Visible Image stamps so they are all together.  I can see that I will have to make some more though as my stash is increasing rather quickly!

I was able to make it thanks to Julie Woodward. If you would like to have a go you will find three videos, the first of which is at:

The backing paper is from a Lucy Cromwell collection, and the lace I received from Phill Martin.  The stamps used are: Classical face which has been coloured in using Promarkers - Putty, Satin and Baby pink. Live your Dreams, and Butterfly using Memento Ink Pad - Lilac Roses.

Please take a look on their website at their fabulous stamps:
