Sharing 'My World'

Hello there, I am here today to share with you a layout I made with the new Krafty Goodness, papers with a kraft base and loads of vibrant colours and patterns!

I just loved this world patterned paper which I decided to use as the background for this layout as it fitted perfectly with my title.  
I used a mix of inks and spritzing ink to create the background which really made the white pattern stand out.  

To create the title I used the Fundamental Wood Vaneer alphabet and spritized it in blue and then dabbed on some yellow ink.

The quotes on the Chatterbox paper are perfect for cutting out and creating mini titles or flip it over for blocks of colour which can be used as a mat for your photos.  Sticking with my love of circles I add some by using different sized punches and ruffling the edges with my scissors.

Products Used:
Artiste Spritizing Ink - Blue
Yellow Ink

Have a fab day and thanks for stopping by

Hey Mr Mister ....

Male cards ... hmmm they seem to stump many people, especially me!  

With ladies themed cards there are oodles and oodles of things out there to make the card pretty but boy, when it comes to male cards sometimes it's a little bit sparse.  Yes I know there are many masculine items too but sometimes creating things can cause a total mental block which sends you into a mad panic as a birthday approaches or Father's day!  Can I really make another golf themed card this year for dad?!?!

Yesterday I was demoing over at Craftworld in Hillington at their Spring Paper Exravaganza (which is on today too) and was working with one of docrafts latest releases, Mr Mister

This range will certainly help to make those male cards and there is so many fab things in the range that you can embellish the cards without the need for bling :)

I will leave you with this card which was the most popular card at the demo ... My Hero!

Thanks for stopping by

Spring Flowers

Good morning everyone.  
Spring is well under way, the gardens and hedgerows are filled with new life and pretty flowers.  With this in mind I am here today to share with you some cards which all have flowers on them 

I have used the fabulous new Fundamental Embellishments to dress up the cards.  Here is a closer look at the cards

 I love using butterflies on my cards and especially when they can be cut from the papers and then added with some foam pads to give it a 3D look.  The little flowers were punched in the papers and I added some Bella! droplets to the centres.

Product Used :
Xcut Palm Punch Flower

For me you can't go wrong with circles and when they have pretty scalloped edges well you're on to a winner!  The Fundamental Sentiment stickers were fab put on to the white background allowing the words to pop out at you!

Product Used :
Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Die
Spellbinders Circle Die

And finally what a better way to use the tiny numbers to create a clock on the front of your card.  Here the new alpha stickers are used to add a simple 'TIME'

I hope you have enjoyed my spring cards for you today!

Easter Peek-a-boo

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you how I made this fun little card which I made to send tto someone special this Easter.

Products Used
Leaf Die

The addition of acetate to the card is great for creating a floating feeling to greetings or stamped image.

First of all I took an A6 card blank where the centre is marked at 10.5 cms.  I then placed the ruler at the edge of the card and marked at 15 and 19.5 cms and then cut down these two lines.  I discarded the centre section.

On the inside of the card I added some double sided tape and then cut a piece of acetate to the same size of the card and added it to the tape.  

I added the small piece of card to the bottom of the acetate for support.  This is the 'new'card blank for you to create with!

I used the Bella! Rustic Charm papers as I thought the pastel colours were perfect for Easter.  I cut the oval shape from the paper to create a topper and placed this on top of layers of the paper.  The glitter paper from the small paper pack was used along the bottom section.

To create the vellum flowers on the top of the card I simply cut two scallop circles and folded each one twice so I could find the centre.

I cut out one of the scallops so it nearly goes through the middle.  I then left two of the scallops and then cut down the next one.  I repeated this around the whole of the circle.

This is what you should be left with.  I then lightly scrunched each one and added it to the top of the card with a Bella! floral in centre.

I added 'Happy Easter' using the Fundamentals Alpha Stickers which finished my card off!
Naturally this card design can be made for all sorts of occasions, so hopefully you are inspired to get creating!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by

Happy Birthday Fusion Style!

Hello everyone, 
I am still in birthday mode today and am here to share with you three little birthday cards I made. 

First up is a 21st birthday card made using the black and white 2015 Bella! Fusion and some of the glitter Kraftastic.

Products Used

I used some of the Kraftastic papers to add some stars and glitter to it.  The little champagne bottle is from the Bella! Wedding wood veneer pack and the glittery '21' stickers fits perfectly on the label.


So often I find masculine cards quite difficult to create but these new colours and patterns in the fusion range are just perfect.  For the next card I choose to use the blue papers and made a cut out in the centre.  Again I have used the Kraftastic papers to add some sparkle!

Products Used

The last card brings in Spring and the yellow colour is just so fresh.  I love the little polka dots and the floral patterns.  I have added some of the candy card stock to add some sparkle to this card.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by

Glittery Party Bags

Today I am carrying on with my birthday theme from the other day and sharing with you some 'party bags' I made using Ruby Rock-it's featured products this month which are Bella! Kraftastic and Bella! Fusion.  

And they mixed together beautifully!

Products Used

I really love the glitter which is seperated by the white patterns and kraft cardstock.  The stars are super vibrant and just shine brightly!  These are just the pink version so do make sure you check out the other colours.

And the Kraftastic stickers all laced in glitter will just make you go weak at the knees!

Mixing in the Bella! Fusion really breaks up the glitter and at the same time shines brightly itself with the strong patterns popping off the white background.

I added a strip of the Kraftastic paper to the top of the bag and then cut some strips of the Fusion paper. Then I cut some triangles into the strips and added them to the bag and cover the top section with a doily cut from the papers.  I jazzed up the bag with some stars cut from the paper too!

Here is a better look at three of the bags 

These went down a treat with the party guest as they left the party

Have a great day

Pink Sparkling Birthday!

Hello!  Today there I have a mass of pretty pinks to show off an awesome cake my daughter and her friend made and decorated all by themselves.
They spent the whole afternoon creating this masterpiece so needless to say the camera came out and I took the photo  ...... to scrap!

These are the reasons why I scrapbook, to record the milestones my little people make and these come daily and when I least expect it they blow me away with their ever growing talents.

The new RRBF Bella! Kraftastic Paperz are simply sparkling!  
There are many awesome patterns on the on the kraft card which are all glittered and will bring a sparkle to any project.  They are fabby for the fussy cutters among us too ... woot woot!!

Also there are some brilliant Kraftastic Stickers too which coordinate beautifully!
I mixed the Kraftastic Paperz with the New Bella! Fusion Paperz ... Magic!
