You Can Create It Challenge

Hi Stampers. Today I am sharing the latest challenge I joined. It's with some very talented ladies in the Netherlands. The challenge is called "You can create it ". I received an envelope of supplies in which I could create anything with using as many of the materials as possible and could add any I chose to the kit. I opted to only use items supplied in the kit with one exception …..the butterfly!

I have enjoyed joining the ladies in this challenge and look forward to seeing what the others have created.

Thank you for stopping by and do come again!

Something Wonderful…..

Hi Stampers! I am surprised to get the chance to be in the studio today, very unexpected! But I won't complain:-) I decided to carry on in the same colour combination as my last post. I am loving the Springtime colours in contrast to what's outdoor at present. So hopefully this will bring a smile to your face while we all wait patiently for Spring to arrive.

  Thank you for stopping in today. Please come again .Have a wonderful day!

Get Well Wishes

Hi Stampers and welcome back. I hope you are having a great start to the week. I cannot believe it's Monday again ….already! I only blink my eyes and another week has come & gone. Maybe that's a sign of getting older? I dunno.

Anyways! On to todays project. There;s been the usual flu/ cold season in my area so today I am sharing a little card I created for a sick friend. I thought it might cheer her up a bit with all the dreary weather , and feeling under the weather. What do you think?

 I just love all the colour in this card. I think I may be wishing for spring and in need of colour! Until then I will just have to continue to create my own sunshine:-)

I hope you've enjoyed my post today and will take the time to leave a comment so I know you've been here. Thank you and have a wonderful week!

A Happy Thing

Hi Stampers! Today I am sharing a little card I created using the new A Happy Thing stamp set by Stampin Up. I must admit I wasn't very taken with this set until I saw so many beautiful projects coming through on Pinterest. That being said, I must give credit for today's card to Chat Wszelaki whose link can be found here. I love her card and couldn't wait to make it. So today here is my version…….

The colours I chose are Hello Honey and Island Indigo. I really have come to love this set, it's so Happy! I look forward to using it again.

I hope you've enjoyed stopping by the studio today. Have a great day!

Be Mine Valentine Banner

Hello Stampers! I am sorry for the delay in this next project. It took a little longer than I anticipated! I had an image in my mind for a Valentine's Banner using some retired items and a few new things from Stampin Up. Once I got started I decided to alter it, as usual, hence the delay.

 The Be Mine banner I created was labor intensive but well worth it in the end. I hope you will agree once you've had a look…...


Most of the supplies used are Stampin Up current & retired. I am really pleased with how it's come out as the photos don't do it justice. I've been wanting to make a banner for some time now but felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the project. I decided last weekend to tackle that fear once and for all, get off pinterest and start creating a Velentine's Day banner. It was difficult at first to layout the design. Once I had it though the project really wasn't that difficult. Just don't expect to complete this in an afternoon unless you are some sort of Super Crafter !

 I hope this has inspired you to make one yourself. I am happy to offer the supplies I used in creating mine if you message me. Please let me know you've dropped in to the studio today by leaving a comment below.

 Have a great day and come again!

2 Step Stamping with Lotus Blossom

Hi Stampers! I've been itching to try the new Lotus Blossom 2 step stamping set I received over a month ago. As I was digging through my stamp drawer I came across it buried under the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. I had planned to post a mini album today but couldn't resist these cards.

Now that I have had a chance to use this set….I am lovin it! Oh ! and the Lost Lagoon. Sad but this is the first chance I've had to use it as well…….it's Lush! I love how perfectly this set goes with the papers from the stack. I've already got plans for my next batch of cards!

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today and will come again. Have a great day .

Altered Journal

Hi Stampers. I hope you are having a nice weekend. It's blue skies and sunshine here today so I won't be staying in the studio as I had hoped. I just can't pass up a dry sunny day to go for a walk. But before I head out I wanted to share the altered journal I created yesterday.

The papers are Pion and the stamp is from Unity's de France labels. I've been waiting to use this stamp set for ages! This paper provided the perfect base for the image.  The flowers were created using Stampin Up's pansy and the retired fun flowers die.  I loved making those flowers and must admit I've always been very imitated when it comes to creating my own. I am really pleased in how these have come out though.

 Well that's it for today but please come again as I have quite a few projects planned for this next month. Have a glorious day!
