First layout is of me wearing a hat I got for my birthday, an owl of course!!  Papers are by Crate.  Second layout is from a sketch on


Weekend Catch Up

This morning has been a very very misty morning you  can hardly see anything in front of you.  For our walk this morning we went to one of our faves along the river which is a very long one and where Lucy goes crazy!!!  The second photo shows Lucy’s path to happiness where she ran off chasing birds into the mist.Two layouts from this week.  The first is of Neil and I taken in September, papers are American Crafts Amy Tangrine line and I cut out the papers using a chevron template which is all the fashion at the moment.  Second layout is using some photos from last year or could have been the year before taken in Cambridge.


Christmas Daily Part 2

31 index cards later my Xmas Daily is all done.  To some I added some spray mist, some some stamps etc.   The papers were all from the Random Crate range.  Just realised I need to make a cover index card so will do that in a minute.

The layout below is one I did a couple of weeks ago after seeing a similar one on someones blog who i’ve forgotten who it was.  I made the pink circles by spraying mist paint through a  toilet roll tube, perfect circles!! (not my idea!).

December Daily

Its that time of year again when all crafters/scrappers are planning their December/Xmas planners/journals/albums etc.  I’ve decided to do something a little bit different this year as I’ve found that now my kids are teenagers and we don’t have visits to Santa or Grottos any more that Xmas is a quietier affair activities wise.  So i’ve decided to do a ‘December Daily’ taking a photo every day during the month of December.  I’ve gone with 6×4 index cards and embellished one corner of the card and used stamps and paints to decorate the front leaving room for journalling.  The photo will be glued on the back.  The photo below shows all the punch outs that I did , I’ll be back later with some of the finished cards.  I’ve got one of the 7Gypsies Library Card Drawers that I will use to put them in.

As it was a lovely sunny, blue sky day yesterday we took Lucy for a walk along Cromer beach.  She looks quite happy in this photo but a walk on the beach is not her thing and she gets bored very easily!!!The last photo was taken last Tuesday on my birthday, Lucy had to get into the act of course!!!


Day Off!

A day at home today catching up on housework and washing and of course some crafting!  This layout is a 8.5×11 size and I got to use my new A4 cloud stencil which I love and some turquoise spray paint.  Papers are from Studio Calico.  I also made a quick and easy blank paper notebook using some papers from AmericanCrafts.
