Some recent makes!


Well here we are and it's half way through the month!  Weather a bit cooler and some rain (which is good for the gardens!)
So far we've managed two BBQ's, which, for mid May in Scotland is pretty good going!

I've not had much crafty time recently (although I do seem to be managing to "crafty" shop!)

But here are a couple of recent makes.. die cutting rather than stamping!

May already!

Hello!   Wow! We are in May already!  Holiday countdown is definitely on! 

I've been missing in action on the cardmaking front but I have been using my time wisely!  I'm in the process of creating boards on Pinterest with all my stamps and dies etc.  The reason?  Only so that I can see what I have in one place and hopefully take inspiration from it rather than continuing to shop for new stash!
It's no small task though!

I have been using some of my time to craft though. In the form of crochet. Nothing complex, just a big (BIG!) granny square!  It's so colourful and cozy. The wool is arran weight so it's really quick and easy to work with.  Here it is... get your sunglasses on!

Horace and Boo


Found a little bit of crafty time today (I'm mostly busy with crochet at the moment) so I thought I would have a play with the new Horace and Boo collection from Polkadoodles.

I couldn't resist this little cat!

It's Your Happy Day!


It's Saturday so it's a happy day!

I've been playing with some new stamps from My Favourite Things.  And using my new Tim Holtz/Tonic Stamping Tool.  I have to say... it's one of the best tools I have! Stamping results are perfect! 

Just a quick little card!

Friday, April 7, 2017

So excited!

Hello Friday!

A very happy bunny here.  A new arrival! 

All snug and cozy in it's neoprene sleeve!

Just need some crafty time to play with it now!

Another Dragon!


And welcome to Thursday!

Very little time at the moment but it's always good to get some crafty time.. time to play and be creative!  And nothing beats creativity than a play with pens or watercolours.. or anything not ready made!  So here we go with another little dragon.. watercolours again!

I love this stamp set! Just need to get the die cut set now to match it!

Hope your Friday is a quick one!

Mothers Day


Well, now that Mothers Day is past I thought I would post pics of the card I made for my mum this year.  I always struggle to find something different, or an image that is just right. I'm not a fan of pre-printed images or printed verses (although I have enough digi kits and card making software!!) but when it comes to a card for a mum it has to be as special as mums are!

So, I went for something simple outside but with maximum effect inside.  And I was not disappointed by the result when my mum opened it! 

Just plain and simple on the outside (Papers are just gorrrrrrjuss!  Brighton Rock by Clarity Stamp)

And here is the inside! (not that easy to take a photo of but the 3D effect is really nice)

And my Mothers Day?  Spoiled rotten, and a lovely meal out with my family!



Brr, it's a bit colder today considering how lovely and warm it was yesterday!  No wonder there are so many coughs and colds going around!

I've been playing with a new set from Simon Says Stamp called "Wild Cuddly Critters".  I love this elephant!

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Birdie Banners


Hope you're having a lovely weekend!  I've been busy with family stuff, some crafty time with friends, and a bit of time spent tidying the craft room - starting to see the floor again!

I have had some time to play today though and made this little card with Birdie Banners from Concord & 9th.  When I first saw this set I knew it was a must have.  The little birds are so cute and the sentiments cover so many different options!

I used my Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils - first time playing with them and I'm really impressed.

Here's my card:

I'm going to enter this one in the following challenges:

Sunny Friday!

Wow! It's Friday again!  And it's a beautiful day here - blue skies and everything to smile about!
Even more so because, despite being really busy, I have found time to do some crafty shopping! Lots of parcels to open and goodies to ogle! Lots of lovely new fabric too!

13 Basic Grey FQs from Moda

10 Bali Batik FQs

Look at the elephant die - I had to have this set!

One extra special parcel arrived today though.. first time I have shopped with Simon Says Stamp and I have to say I'm really impressed with how quickly the parcel arrived from the States.  And even more happy to see the contents!  I have been trying to get one of these stamp sets from MFT for AGES!!!! It's Magical Dragons!  It seems to be sold out everywhere (no wonder!)

Can't wait to have a play!   I think I will try my new Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils!

Also in the package some gorgeous stamps from Concorde & 9th, and the SSS Monthly Kit!  Suffice to say I was nearly dancing round the room when the postman arrived!

Looking forward to a crafty weekend!

Having a play with Paperartsy Infusions


Welcome to the weekend!  It's been a good week this week.  Lots achieved (not crafty stuff).  Time for some crafty stuff tomorrow hopefully. 
Although I did manage a quick make today playing with Paperartsy Infusions, some gel medium and one of my new Kim Dellow stamps.

I just love the effects you can get with the infusions.. so much fun to play with!

Thursday, March 9, 2017

I could not resist!

Hi!  I hope the week is going well!  Very limited crafty time at the moment but I have managed to squeeze in some shopping over the last 10 days or so..  Here are the latest additions to my stash!

Some infusions...


Gorgeous stamps!

Get out the acrylics and have a play!

Hello! Well, it's definitely all been about having a play today! Re-discovered the acrylic paints (Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics by Paperartsy) and got a few extra tools out.. a hot glue gun, heat gun, baby wipes and an old credit card!

And here are the results!

The baby wipe flower..

Then a card using my new Kim Dellow stamps!

Used the faux printing technique with an old credit card.

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
