I have used a lovely image from Tiddly Inks called Bake Me Some Love I coloured her three different colours to match my ribbons she is so cute and fitted onto my aprons perfectly. I coloured up using Graph'It Markers and paper pierced each of her hats. The papers are from Polkadoodles…

What another fun weekend we have had Our lovely Granddaughter Felicity came to stay We had a spooky visit to the farm on Friday where there was a Halloween experience It was great everything from Pumkin carving to a spooky tractor ride where we got squirted with water by skeletons, our driver was hit over the head by a grave digger and he continued to drive the tractor (not very well I might add) Felicity goes home tommorow so alas will not be with us for Halloween but that did not stop her crafting this little lot took her hours and hours Soooo Happy Halloween to you all Love from Grandma & Felicity  xx

Stampin' Unicorn Crafting

Image
SSSShhhhh want to know a sparkly secret?? I am sooooooooo very happy to have been asked to join the brand new  Stampin' Unicorn Crafting DT So my new name for this DT is.... Flutterby Sparkle Scatty We all have our own unicorn names ~ How fun is that For someone up until about 12 months ago who did not stamp ~ I am thrilled to bits For my first project I have used the scrummy stamp Magical  Dwellings it's so beautiful I just know this will be well used! I also added one of the Mushrooms from the Autumn Harvest Stamp Set I have used Polychromo Pencils to colour with some glitter on the windows ~ It just screamed at me for glitter the only problem being my camera has a phobia against it and will not take decent photos for any amount of bribery!!  The Sentiment stamps can be found on  Treasured Blooms & Tall and Elegant I have used Distress Oxides for the background and the Die I have used is the Toadstool Die from Polkadoodles We have a brand new Blogso make sure to follow us so you don't mi…

Fairy Sunny Day

Image
Happy Tuesday to you all here to share with you a card and tag that I have made Using the soooo cute image from Tiddly Inks  Fairy Sunny Day (both of the sentiments shown on card and tag came with her, what a bonus!) Such a sweetie, I totally am in love with these images I coloured up using Graph'It Markers, I had planned to use a lot of yellow but as soon as I went to colour Turquoise took the lead but I think she suits it rather well

I used a flower edge die that I have had for years, cut it twice and cut some single flowers for the tag and coloured the little centers so they matched. I also used a flower die for the card again colouring the center. Both images were cut twice to allow me to cut out the larger flower seperatly for the card and tag , I then glittered the edges and adhered using Pinflair glue so they popped of the page. I used Nuvo drops ~ Aquatic Mist on her wings.
I finished of using some lush ribbons from Crafty Ribbons Organza Swiss Dots ~ You really would not belive how m…

Happy Sunday to you all today I have the honour of being a GDT for the Love to Create The Challenge is always anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes pop across they have some wonderful prizes you could win As it's almost Halloween that became my project focus
I cut out three tag shapes onto watercolour card and printed off three of the lovely Oddella's that you can find in the Polkadoodles store Here I coloured up the Oddella's using Polychromo Pencils in shades of grey and red I used Distress Oxides on the tags mainly Iced Spruce with some splashes of Black soot. Next came the stamps  I used Absolute Vintage Clear stamp set - stamping Cogs and clocks randomly. I also used a few other stamps for the circles and lines. I also had a play with a few masks. Added a little red paint to the top of each one and let it run down the tag. I lastly added a few different size sequins and  a sentiment to each one The sentiments have a brush of fired brick distress ink and finished off with a little doo…

Summer Memories

Happy Tuesday I am here today to share with you a mini photo album

Our Granddaughter spent a lot of her summer holidays with us and we made lots and lots of fun memories. Whilst she was here a few weeks back I had just finished my second album  Belle Papillon Felicity absolutly fell in love with it so I decided to make her one of our time together this Summer, yes we had lots of rain but we donned our fashion wellies and smiled through it. The papers I have used throughout are from the lovely collection Dollie Daydream Goes East They were absolutly perfect for my project The same as last time I made a little box cover for my album That pretty butterfly was from the Dollie collection, the little frame was a Hobbycraft buy , quite cute ,I think there was about 8 in a pack I was so pleased how vibrant it all looked. The cover of my album, that flowery paper, I really had forgotten how good this collection was. I used another of the butterflies and a couple of lanterns just to finish  This day we spent…

Belle Papillon Mini Album

Image
Happy Monday ~ What a busy weekend I have had , the Granddaughter came to stay and as ever we cram as much fun in as we possibly can.
Anyway after making my first mini album last month , I decided on another This time being more adventurous with pockets and adding lots more detail and even its own little box I mainly used Belle Papillon to decorate It is so beautiful, romantic with lots of nostalga I thought carefully about each page but once I knew what I wanted with this collection it was very easy You can find Belle Papillon here I firstly decorated the box adding some lush lace a tag, some wooden keys that I painted up using slightly sparkly paints I love them and the lovely sentiment *Create the greatest memories*
I have also used lots of Polkadoodles dies in making this and also Paper pads Bella Fleur & Belle Papillon Both can be found here (beautiful papers)
My Album has lots of pages and as my phone is ancient and no good for videos  I have put together some moving pictures of the pages …
