Festive Greenery 12 x 12 Layout !

Hello ! 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ........
I am finally into my Christmas crafts and I thought I would try out this gorgeous stamp set by putting together a Christmas greenery themed layout ! It is based on pale grey card stock ( co-ordinations ) which I have sanded and then layered with stamping, embossing and glittering !!! The finished piece is very textured and sparkly and I love the colours - I have added some die cut foliage which has been glittered too !! 

Now I am in the mood I am off to design some cards - wouldn't it be nice to get them done before Christmas Eve this year !!! 
Happy Christmas Crafting !!!

Happy Big Day !

Good Morning ! 
I made a sweet little card yesterday using kraft card and love how it turned out - I am a big fan of kraft because it is so versatile ! I love pastel colours and white embossed on kraft card and like to give it a vintage look too ! This card incorporates a pleated DSP mat on which I have overlaid a stamped topper ! I love yellows with greys together and they go well with the neutral kraft background . 

It's strange when you haven't crafted in a little while - you almost forget how to and I have found that I have come back and feel I want to try new things - we will see where that leads !!! 
Have a great day !

Engagement Card !

Hello ! 
We had a lovely surprise a couple of weeks ago - my lovely daughter Rosie announced her engagement to long time boyfriend Howard !! So I had to give them a purchased card ( oh, the shame of it ! ) because all my crafting stash was packed away !! As soon as I could I made them a proper card I did and here it is !!! Not my usual vintage style because I wanted my daughter to love it - so I chose her favourite colour - pale duck egg blue and made a clean and simple card !!! 

This is the vellum insert with the initials of the happy couple !! 

We have no date set yet for the Wedding and I will try to be be more organised when it comes to making the card and the stationary !!!!
Thank you for your visit ! 
Happy crafting !

Black and Whites 12 x 12 Layout !

Hello !!! I have been absent for a very long time - life gets in the way and I needed a break from the crafting to give my attention to building a business which I have done !!! I am happily an Independent Consultant with Neal's Yard Remedies Organic - I just need to keep up my momentum !!! I have missed my crafting though so put together a layout this week which I will teach to a large group of ladies at a local crop in November ! The theme is best friends and mine is my lovely daughter Rosie ! 

The colour theme was black and whites - i.e. : shades of white and cream ! It is a very angular layout softened with the flowers and butterflies ! DSP is not easy to incorporate into a layout so this shows a very simples way of adding a strip of DSP to the side and using it as an anchor for the whole layout ! 
I will hopefully be back more regularly with some Christmas themed projects to share with you ! 

Thank you for your visit and support during my long absence !!! 
Happy Crafting !
