Hi there all,
Today I have a layout to share with you. The photos of are of my friend Amelia who actually took the photos herself,before she moved to Oz. She is a fan of butterflies(hence why I have used so many).
I have used the sketch over at lets get sketchy.

      and here is my layout

The papers I have used are all out of my huge box of scraps(need to start using this more,while the lid still closes). The punches are Martha Stewart and Fiskars and the alphabet title is a freebie off a magazine.

Hi there all,
I recently treated myself to yet more magnolia stamps including frosty with snowflake, which was a little unusual for me as I like tilda and edwin but I have to say I am loving it and loved colouring it!
So today I have a card to share with you  using my new stamp.

Stamp is magnolia,paper is my minds eye damask, dies are couture creations doily and spellbinders snowflakes and the lace border is a Martha Stewart punch.

I would like to enter this into

Hi there all,
I have a card to share with you today and I have to be honest, I was a little worried about using green and yellow together but I love how its turned out. It reminds me of the season here at the moment...spring.

All of the paper I used were from assorted freebies,the punch is martha stewart, the gorgeous stamp was a gift from mum and i think its crafters companion(must check this) and the flower i have sewn using a bazzil template.

I'am entering this into

Merry Christmas from Chai

Today I have a card to share with you with an image of my gorgeous girl Chai.  I've had this photo for a couple of years and had the intention of making a card with it and now I have had the perfect opportunity as the challenge over at Winter Wonderland is Christmas pets.

I have used a free paper pack from HOTP called forever christmas cards. Stamps are personal impressions and the scalloped circle dies are from couture creations.

Just Us

Hi there all,
Today I have a layout to share with you for which I have used the latest challenge sketch over at lets get sketchy.
I have had these photos for long time but wasn't sure they were worth scrapping as my mum and i look like two little dots in the water, but decided that, that's part of the story, it shows that mum, nan and I had this hole place all to ourselves. I'm really happy with how it turned out!


I have used cristina re paper
cuttlebug red tag sale alphabet
mft wave die
fiskars border punch
