Quick Little Update

I have a few more cards to share from my DT kit this month.
I've used some more of the Scenic Route Sonoma paper on this one, teamed with some Teresa Collins. The green spot is the reverse side of this paper & the other side has a huge variety of gift tags, the round tag on here is one of them.

This card I've made for a very special person, my daughter Chloe. I really am so very proud of her achievement in getting this far in the SYTYCS competition. With only 2 rounds left, I'm confident she has what it takes to go all the way.
Chloe, congratulations & well done. You have an amazing talent & I'm so happy that you gave this competition a go. Now everyone gets to enjoy your stunning creations :)

This uses more of the gorgeous Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers & die cuts.
Have a great week :)

6 Weeks Til Christmas!!!

Hope I didn't scare you, LOL, but Christmas has been on my mind quite a bit lately.
This month at Scrap Pile our challenges are all Christmas themed.
My challenge is to create a Christmas card which features some vellum & bling.
I haven't used vellum for ages but it can give a lovely effect especially on a Christmas card.
Here's my card

Over the weekend I decided I'd like to make an OTP item with the remaining contents of my DT kit & this cute little butterfly came together very quickly & was whisked away even quicker by my DD to put in her room.

The chipboard butterfly is making Memories, I've had it in my stash for a little while.
The papers are Basic Grey Urban Prairie & I've added some Maya Road scrolls which I've painted & coated with glitter.

We will be running some great Christmas classes at Scrap Pile during the last weekend of November. Come along & join us & get some wonderful ideas for some projects you can make for Christmas.

My very talented, beautiful daughter, Chloe, has made it all the way through to Week #10 in the SYTYCS challenge. This is the third last week & she has created 2 absolutely stunning layouts, so if you can spare some votes, I know she would dearly appreciate it.
Here are her gorgeous layouts-

Thanks for stopping by & I hope your week is a great one :)

I'm Back!!!

I hope you didn't think I'd fallen off the planet, LOL. It has been a while hasn't it?
I had a box of goodies arrive in the mail on Friday so I've been having a bit of fun with the contents. I've managed to do 3 cards this weekend & here they are.
This one is for a lovely lady at our school who's act of kindness has made a huge difference to my daughter's confidence during her school swimming lessons.
It uses Making Memories Noteworthy 2 Addie paper, some gorgeous new Green Tara flowers & a beautiful bling flourish from Prima.

With this second one I finally got to play with some pompoms. I've been hanging out for the Maya Road pompom trim to arrive, it's so cute.
The paper is Scenic Route Sonoma & I've used a MME transparency & some Blueye Dezine felt ribbon.

and lastly, on this one I've used the absolutely gorgeous new Urban Prairie range from Basic Grey. I really love the colours in this range.

I hope to be back soon with a few more cards to share.
Take care & be happy :)
