Beautiful Baby

Hi All
Just popping by to share a scrapbook layout I made using Sara's Signature Collection - Little Angels. (Crafter's Companion)
The lovely photo is of my best friend's little grandson...isn't he a cutie. The papers and dies in this range are perfect for both boy and girl projects. I chose to use the yellows and greys and the little die cut elephant.

The cloud dies are brilliant for additional embellishments...I shadowed mine with silver mirri card. The alphabet letters are from the Diamond Press dies, whilst the 'baby' sentiment is beautifully intricate and comes in the Little Angel's range.
Hope you like it xx

Nature's Notebook

Morning All!
Today I thought I'd share another make using the fabulous Nature's Scrapbook collection from Graphic 45, sent to me by the generous folks at Jones Crafts.
This time I altered some magnetic notepads - and even the little pencils too!

Hope you love them as much as me!

Thanks for looking! xx

Nature's Scrapbook Layout

Happy New Year All!
Hope you had a great time over the festive season!
Well, I've been beavering away behind the scenes, but my New Year's resolution is to try and post on my blog a bit more so here goes with a scrapbook page I made of my lovely mum as a young girl.

The papers are Graphic 45's Nature's Scrapbook collection sent to me by the lovely folks at Jones Crafts. The colours and images in this range are stunning!

Anyway, hope you like it!
Back soon

Autumn Wreath

Morning Crafty Peeps!
Just thought I'd pop along to share an Autumn wreath I made for one of my last Crafter's Companion UK Demo Days. I used the fabulous leaf dies from Sara's Autumn Morning Collection and Distress Inks.

I have it on my mantlepiece at the mo, but the plan at the end of the month is to change it up to a winter wreath using some of the lovely Christmassy dies. If the idea goes to plan, then I'll share it with you here :) Hope you like it! xx

Falling Leaves

Afternoon All!
Just back with a little post to share a card I made using the Autumn Morning stamps, papers and dies from Crafter's Companion.

First I used Archival Black Ink to randomly stamp the leaves on the background card, then I matted it onto black card. I created another layer by masking off a strip of the card and inking with Distress Inks to make a panel - the masking tape gives you nice neat lines. I then added gems, stamped a sentiment and added die cut leaves from the papers.
Hope you like it!
Best wishes
