welly boots


I have a LOT of stencils.  My friend has just opened a new website selling stencils.  I don't use a lot of stencils.  I want a lot of the stencils on my friend's new website.  These four things don't sit all that well together...


I need to have a sort through my stencils.  I have a theory that I buy what I like the look of without thinking about how I will use it.  I did this with paper at the beginning of my crafting adventure too, and it led to a huge cull!  Any way, this layout uses one of my stencils...


along with a whole bunch of blue goodies dug out from my stash.  I love these kinds of layouts - they are not made with a collection or big brand supplies.  Rather they are a collection of tags from clothes I've bought, packaging, off cuts and snippets, doilies and labels with a few alhas throown in for good measure.

Thank You Card


I'm filling in for a team mate over on the Stick It Down card team this month.


As the sketch artist I usually mentally make a card whilst doing the sketch, so I challenged myself not to make the exact same card as my original idea.  (Although, I may have a go at making that too, it was a watercolour rainbow with vellum clouds...)


Of course, I stuck with the rainbow theme because 'rainbow is the best colour!'

Supplies:  White card blank, alpha stickers from Basic Grey, OHTO Graphic Liner pen, Swiss Dot Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, red backed tape.

I hope you can squeeze in time to take on this sketch and join us at Stick It Down!

let's be friends


This little cutie and his teddy bear reminded me I had the perfect flair stashed away...


It is from Feed Your Craft and says let's be friends.  A perfect match for the photo, I think you'll agree.

I kept it simple, black and white paper from Cocoa Vanilla and a handful of small embellishments, with blue thread and ink splats for a splash of colour. 

I think I'd feel a little guilty if I made all of my layouts this bare but I do love the white space!

Scraplifting Kaez Mum...


The SpeigelMom Scraps guest designer this month is Jen Gagne aka Kaez Mum.  Here is one of her layouts that I found particularly inspiring...


My take is just as colourful...


I used a tonne of Shimmerz products to colour my background and some cardstock which I ran through my cameo.  With my twelve flowers and colourful splodges in place I added a few sequins in matching colours and made of frame of journalling around the edge.

You can watch the process here...

Gingerbread Hugs


Crafty Ribbons have just released a new ribbon range - Gingerbread men for Christmas.  They are adorable!


Here is my first project with them.  They match the photo perfectly and I had so much fun with this one.  I drew up a cut file to match too.  You can grab that here.


I've added some lace and bias binding to the gingerbread ribbon and a tiny heart loop from the sentiment ribbon too.


Thanks for stopping by!

Keeping Cool


My cheeky little Herb may be gone but he's certainly not forgotten.  This layout is of him 'sharing' an ice lolly in the summer heat last year.


I was in the mood for lots of layers when making this one!  I've gone with a hot colour palette which also matches the lolly 'we' were eating.


And I've become a big fan of a tulle layer on my layouts.  It adds great texture but is very subtle - both things I love.



Thanks for stopping by!
