Mothers Day Card

Mothers Day is fast approaching and I wanted to share an easel card I created for a special commission last Mothers Day – although the purchaser never collected or paid for the card I still love the results.  I have used lots of cutting dies and handmade flowers – created with cutting dies, a shaping tool, Prima Chalk Ink and Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Magnolia Lane Collection –

I thought I might pop in tonight to share with you a layout I completed recently using the Magnolia Lane Collection designed by Sue Smyth.

I had started this layout quite a while ago, however I seemed to have stopped after doing loads of fussy cutting, writing the journaling and matting the photograph.

I don’t really know why I stopped, must have been really busy – what a surprise…really it is because I don’t usually go onto the next card or layout unless I have finished the previous one.  Except one particularly troublesome six page spread I started about 10 years ago that has already consumed dozens of hours in hand-stitching and has multiple flip books on the pages.

So that is my Magnolia Lane layout, which I am very happy with – if I do say so myself.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

More Than Words Challenge – March 2017 – BeYoutiful

I am back to share my interpretation of the More than Words Challenge for this month, which somehow reminded me of the beautiful L’Aquarelle papers and embellishments I had sitting on my desk.

The Challenge is to use the word Beautiful with a Butterfly (or Butterflies) and I knew just the photograph I would use – yes another one of my oldest daughter Naomi-Jon who has always been beautiful on both the inside and the outside.  

A few layers, some fussy cutting, glitter, mist and die-cutting complete my layout – which I just love.  I especially like how I could combine purples, teals and peach in such a harmonious way with the help of awesome papers and embellishments.

You only have couple of days to go if you are going to enter the More than Words Challenge for March – plenty of time if you set your mind to it…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Rambling Rose Collection – Happiness

The new Rambling Rose collection designed by Sue Smyth for Ultimate Crafts is instore and online at Scrapbook Fantasies.  The collection includes awesome papers for fussy cutting, as well as cutting dies, embellishments and embossing folders.

I couldn’t resist creating with the beautiful papers and stamps from one of my favourite new collections for 2017.

I have hand cut all of the frames, leaves and roses, and it didn’t take as long as you may think.

The stamped quote I have used actually comes in a set with the most beautiful scalloped circle, which I just couldn’t fit into my design this time.

I have used a few of the photographs from our Wedding in 1995 that haven’t quite made it into our albums yet.  And boy we were young….
