D-Lish Scraps October Inspiration Board

Hi, Loved the colours of the D-Lish Scraps October Inspiration Board as soon as I saw them last weekend but unfortunately missed out on a Just Add Paper kit as had to go out that evening.
Even so I decided to get into the challenge last weekend and have only now found time to post my page.

At one point I thought this might be the last photo I have of Smudge as he disappeared for about 10 days but he turned up again a couple of days ago. He stayed around for 2 days and has disappeared this afternoon. Most odd.

I was inspired by arrows, the pluses, the chevrons and the triangles as well as the colours of course!

Here is the inspiration board.

World Card Making Day

Hi, decided to spend the week end catching up with all the birthday cards I need for the rest of the year. I haven't finished but nearly done.

I started with a card for my husband's Auntie who is turning 80 later this month and decided to make a couple more from the same supplies for a couple of girl friends.

I also made one for my girl friends daughter and for this one I used a World Card making challenge over at Jillibean

I used one of the sketches and produced this.

Here is the sketch 

WCMD 2 - Jillibean Soup (1)

I have also made a shaker card for my 5 year old great nephew.

I used a Queen & Co Shaker card kit and tiny pops.

I also made an impromptu 18th birthday card as my daughter decided last minute to go to a party but I didn't have time to take a photo!

Just 2 more cards to make and then I need to start on all my Christmas cards!!

A2Z Scraplets first post and September monthly challenge


I'm just sharing my first creation for A2Z Scraplets which I also did as a sample for the September monthly challenge. Poor Smudge is having a bit of a rough time at the moment. He has been going away for days on end and coming back with scratches. Everytime he doesn't appear in the morning I think he isn't coming back. He is nearly 5 years old which is pretty good for a feral cat.

You can find more details about my page on the A2Z Scraplets blog here

Here is the mood board from which I took inspiration for my layout.

It's been a while I know

since I last blogged but things are about to change. I am just starting on a new Design Team for A2Z Scraplets and so will be regularly blogging for them and I hope to get some none DT scrapping done too.
I've had a busy few months since I last blogged. I had a full time job for 6 weeks, my first since before my son was born in 1996. It was a bit of a shock and very tiring to begin with and it took me a couple of weeks to settle into a pattern. Then we went on holiday for a week to Sydney and then I made a Rapunzel outfit for my daughter for her muck up day in October and then had her 18th birthday party to organise. Now things are settling down again.

I'm just scraping this layout in for the August Inspiration Board at D'Lish Scraps. I've actually had it done for a week but only got around to photographing it. I loved the Just Add Paper Geometric Crush kit so used it for this.

And here are a couple of close ups

Whilst I'm here I might as well share a layout I did for last months cybercrop at The Scrap Suite. This was created for a recipe challenge which was to include 5 types of embellishments, 4 different patterned papers, a three word title, 2 photos and 1 journalling tag.

Scrap the Girls April Challenge

I loved the colours and feel of the Inspiration Board over at Scrap the Girls this month so felt compelled to have ago. 

So here is my take using the lovely Free Spirit paper and die cuts from Cocoa Vanilla. I added some embellishments from D-Lish Scraps and Charms Creations.

And here are some close ups:

I added some touches of gold with some gold embossing and the last gold B and alphas.

And here is the inspiration board:

D-Lish Scraps April Inspiration Board

Hi all,
Here is my take on the April Inspiration Board over at D-Lish Scraps. I loved the colours and found this old photo of Eleanor in a dressing gown I made here, which I altered so that only part of it was in colour and the rest in black and white.

And a few close ups

And here is the inspiration board on which it is based:

I took inspiration from the circles in the top left hand corner.
