Hello and as always thanks for dropping in. Today I would like to share with you my latest creation for the challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy and it is another great one for you to join in on.
I chose this time to do a selfie, my boys seem to be getting me into them and truth be told its normally the only photos there is of me lol. Anyway now for the sketch and my take on it.
The patterned papers I chose to use are by Kaiser Craft - Utopia Collection and I created it on white cardstock, with them I once again used the wonderful Freckled Fawn products.
Freckled Fawn Products -
Stars Washi Tape
Wooden Flowers - Purple
Lace (White and I inked it with Distress Ink - Peeled Paint)
I used a Prima Doily Die and inked the edges with Distress Ink -walnut Stain. I punched out butterflies from the patterned paper and used the same Distress Ink for the edges.
The flowers are fussy cut from the patterned papers and I rolled the petals and used a purple pearl in the center. The leaves have also been fussy cut from the papers.
I used a white chipboard for the title and coloured it with a Copic - Amethyst.
I hope you have enjoyed popping in to see my latest page and that I have been able to inspire you to join in over at the Let's Get Sketchy blog challenge. For those who are living in the cold winter weather like me at the moment stay warm and craft...... That's my answer for the cold, as much as I can anyway. Happy Crafting xxx

Hello my crafty friends and as always welcome to my blog. Tonight I would like to share for you another creation for Off The Rails Scrapbooking. Yes another, I just loved the challenge so much. My other page was of Marlie and this time I chose to use a photo of her brother Codie.

Plywood Title Words
Dusty Attic Stars Stencil
Copic - Sky Blue
Inka Gold - Viva - Aquamarine and Blue Steel
Viva 3D Stamp paint - Light Blue Metallic
Viva Modeling Cream - Dark Blue

Hello crafty friends and welcome as always to my blog. Today I would like to share a page with you that I have created for the challenge over at Off The Rails. The challenge is Monochromatic and I just love the choice of colors you get to pick from. I have chose to use orange for a layout of a friends daughter Marlie.
Now for my take on the challenge which I have created on Black cardstock.
The beautiful photo of Marlie was taken by Dylan Falcon Photography.
The products I used to create this page were -
Modeling paste which I mixed with Distress Ink - Spiced Marmalade.
Kaisercraft Mist - Orange
Derivan Ink - Orange
Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst - Fussy Navel Peach
Viva Inka Gold Rub - Orange
Tim Holtz Stencil - Bubble
The beautiful orange flowers are by Petaloo - Floral Ephemera Peach and Flora Doodle Mixed Blooms Mixed Blooms Sienna.
I also used some Kaisercraft Mango pears just here and there around the flowers.
The butterflies are also by Petaloo.
Both the chippies I chose to use are by Imaginarium. The gorgeous on which I framed Marlie with I first covered with an orange Copic, just a little thing I tend to do before I use Viva Croco Cracking, just incase it crackles a little more than usual and you still have the same colour, in this case orange.
I then in patches used a little Viva Inka Gold rub - Orange.
On my title chippie I used the orange Copic and the coated it with Glossy Accents.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my page for the Off The Rails Monochromatic challenge.

Hello and welcome once again to my blog and my DT post for Meg's Garden and I hope you enjoy stopping in and seeing my latest creations with the beautiful Megs Garden products. I just love the Forget me Not range. They have the most beautiful flowers on them and have a feel of elegance.
The three cards I would like to show you are clean and simple cards that I have created with mainly just the patterned papers. It shows the beauty of them.
Card number 1 -
The only extras to this card are the cardstock I created it on, the wooden flourish birdcage, liquid pearls and die I used to cut out the thank you. Everything else has been fussy cut from the papers.
Card number 2 -
This time the only extra on the card is the die cut Thank You. The elegant lady and beautiful flowers have been fussy cut from the patterned papers. Clean and simple and a wonderful use to show off the beautiful papers. It is also a good way of using up anything left over from other creations.
Card number 3 -
Again the only thing that isn't from the patterned papers is the die Thank You with everything else being fussy cut from the patterned papers.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards and another look at the fussy cutting world I love. A way I find enhancing work by fussy cutting and also a way of using patterned papers you may have left over from other projects.

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog and my latest DT creation for Megs Garden that I would like to share with you using the beautiful "Rose Quartz" patterned papers. I would love to say they are my favorite papers but I can't, they are one of my favorite because I love all the Meg's Garden papers. They are wonderful designs to create with and I must say that I always find many things to do with them.
I have already shown you a layout, cards and tags but now it is time to show you my Shadow Tray which I have titled Dream. I chose this title because these papers remind me so much of my mum. She would have loved them and what I have created with them and she is always in my dreams.
The shadow tray as by Scrapmatts and consists of a base and 3 layer. In each of the sections I have used the Rose Quartz papers and the stunning pink rose in the middle at the bottom has been fussy cut from the papers. I love this rose and it reminds me of the many that I have photographed this season.
The white on the tray is a white paint and the deep pink is a Copic.
Underneath my punched butterfly I placed a mini delicate oval filigree and behind the flowers in the section above I used a Tim Holtz Time Piece which comes in a set of 5. These Times pieces are now on clearance in Meg's Garden so if you wanted the set you would have to be quick before they run out. In middle bottom section behind the fussy cut rose you will see the new lace and it comes in three wonderful colours. This one is the cream and the other two colors are pink (Soft) and white, I just love them all.
The gorgeous Vintage Trinket at the top with the little flower over it is also New to Megs Garden Store. The flowers that I have used in the photo along side the stature are the Velvet Carabella Rose - Fairy Pink. They are very pretty and have a delicate look. My dream title is also by Scrapmatts and also been painted white.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my shadow tray and please keep scrolling to see more of my creations. Also don't forget to call back again and make sure you leave me some love so I know you called in. Happy crafting. xxx
