Glad Tidings - A Christmas carol layout


I've created this layout for the November 2015 challenge at scrapbookingtop50. I got quite a happy vibe from their mood board (see below). I've used all the vibrant colours and added some patterned papers that had some shapes. The last thing I added was the little coloured circle stickers inside my inked circles which I thought matched the umbrellas quite well.

Thanks for looking.

Card for Unstampabelles challenge


November Challenge #52: Anything Goes - with a twist to use a flower or flowers

We are remembering the 100th anniversary of WW1 this year, so perhaps that would fit
or you can remember a loved one. It can be a keepsake box, or a scrap page or a card.
Things happening this month are the Melbourne Cup, DiWali and Remembrance Day 
(on the 11th of the 11th). The twist is to use a flower on your work.  This is the prize.

Here is what I created. I made a card using some of the Ruby Rock-It Nostalgia kit. 
I've also added a pretty pink ribbon, a Bo Bunny button with embroidery floss and a 
hand made ribbon rose flower.

I'm thinking I may give this to my Nan for her 93rd birthday on the last day of this year.

I hope you think of joining in this month.

A Singapore layout

It's been so nice to sit at my craft desk today and create.  Here is another page from my Singapore album. I have nearly finished it.

This one is for Pixels and paper challenge.  I have used the four blocks of colour in order for my background. They I cut a cream circle to represent the mat on the floor of the insp pic. It is also appropriate as my page is about going to dinner and it has a double meaning for me of a dinner plate.

A layout for Anna's Craft Cupboard's Nov sketch challenge

I have created a layout today for the November sketch challenge at Anna's Craft Cupboard. Here is the sketch.


Here is what I created.

I like green and white together. I made the butterfly using an interesting stamping technique.
Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Christmas cards with a northern flavour

Aren't these sweet little images? I've fussy cut them from a wonderful magazine called Daphne's Diary. I've also added some background paper, a large snowflake sticker and some rhinestones.

I'm entering these two cards in a competition at Soul-scrappers
