Vixie


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here, on this rather gorgeous Friday:)


I'm afraid I have a soft spot for fairies, they appeal to some part of my airy, fluffy, free spirited side. And of course I'm always on the look out for them at the bottom of the garden! So, it's only natural that Vixie here, is a well loved and well used part of my 'Craft Collection'.

I've not made a Shaker Card before, they seem to be popular at the moment, so, Vixie, these scrummy Simple Life A Charmed Life Papers  and some Circle Dies were the perfect partners for what I had in mind. Simples!

Nevaeh & My Precious Daughter

Morning all, Linda here, yes yes, I know it's Wednesday, but I missed posting this on Friday, so I'm popping it on now.
I decided to make another easel card (I don't make this very often, but I do love them), using the gorgeous Nevaeh by Krista Smith (one of the first stamps I ever bought). She's on sale in the shop at the moment so snap up a bargain before she's out of stock!
 I paired her with these lush papers from Pion.  I wanted to showcase the wonderful contrast of the purple and pink, so I coloured her outfit to match.


This is the card shown closed.
Colours used

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet
Outfit: Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves


This is the opened card, I kept the inside pretty simple so as not to distract from the front.

That's all from me today, happy crafting! :) xx

Teacher Heart....

A little gift for the teachers is required so I have  made this little heart using some school style papers....the papers I have used are not available but you can get some lovely ones here...
I used Lawn Fawns Violets ABCs to stamp the sentiment and then added some flowers and a cute wee apple charm to finish off!
I hope you like!

DieNamics Blueprints 24.
Papers- Bildmalarna An ocean with strawberries.
Hi everyone!!

I'm back with another Lawn Fawn So Jelly stamp set make again! these little sets are not only a fabulous price but a ridiculous amount of fun to play with!!

I used one of my MME coastal card blanks for this one and then some papers that are just so prefect for casual under the sea-ness, Bildmalarna An ocean with strawberries.

I also just had to get in using my DieNamics Blueprints 24  set...... again!! but it just makes rectangle cards soooo easy to make up and the little confetti dies that come in the set are just perfect for splodging around your card. Did you know that there are some sketches for you to use with the Blueprints sets too? you can find them all HERE.

Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx

Over the Threshold


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


This summer, I am going to two weddings. I'm excited to be dusting off my party shoes, but, I was not so excited about making the two cards! I find wedding cards a struggle.

 Or rather, normally I do. This card is for the second wedding, so I am feeling super smug, as it's over a month away, and I'm ready. But, Over the Threshold, is such a fab and perfect likeness of the couple in question, it made the whole card, simples!

Hi everyone!!

I thought I would squeeze a make in today as I had a thank you card to make and my little guys Lawn Fawn stamp collection was too cute to miss out on using!! he he he! bad mamma alert...but seriously....could you resist these cuties????

I used one of my MME coastal card blanks for this one and then some papers that are just so prefect for casual under the sea-ness,  The Scrapcake One moment in time.

I also just had to get in using my DieNamics Blueprints 24  set. It is still one of my absolute favs to play with and just perfect for rectangle cards which I will be honest and say I really struggle with!!

Ellie Says Hi... Again!


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :) 


You might remember Ellie. In Pencil. I put her on an Easel Card a few weeks ago. I wasn't keen on it, so I pulled her off, and made a page for her in my ATC Journal. It had to be, as I only had a sliver of this gorgeous Lawn Fawn Paper left. And I nearly cried when I stamped the 'Hey' sentiment on upside down! Luckily, I was able to switch up my design, and the booboo is now under Ellie's head Phew!

I've linked the items used at the end of my post.

This is Cherry Blossom, isn't she pretty?

Tracy has this stamp on sale, so if you want to pick up a bargain go snap it up while she still has stock left!


I coloured her up with my Distress Ink markers (and one Spectrum Aquatint marker) to match these pretty Pion papers.

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Slate (SA), Black Soot
Clothing & Background: Bundled Sage, Slate (SA), Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, Gathered Twigs

Theodore


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


So, it's Father's Day next weekend. Eeek! Yesterday afternoon, I suddenly realised I needed a card. Not because it's Father's Day next weekend. But, because I realised I had nothing to share with you this weekend! (Insert rude word here.) Yep. Eeek! Again.


Do you have an image you reach for when you need to make something quick? I do. And for me, it's anything Bear. Bear. Not bare. I love colouring fur. I love the mess of it. And I love that I can just smoosh some ink about, and the messier I am, the furrier the bear looks. Perfecto. Honestly, it's just what I need if I'm being quick. Yesterday, I was being quick, so I chose Little Miss Muffet Stamps Theodore. Quick. And cute. Love it!

Skinny Mini!

Hi everyone! Linda here. I really should have posted this last Friday, but after coming back from holiday with a nasty cold virus I just lost all my mojo at the start of last week. Felt much better at the weekend so I whipped up this.

This was such a fun little project, I found the inspiration for this from Ginger at My Sisters Scrapper and she linked to a tutorial she followed from Papercrafter 45 and that's what I mostly followed to make this. However the original mini measured 8.5 inches long and I really wanted to use up some of my 6 x 6 papers, so I adjusted the length. So I guess it's a short skinny mini :)

One thing I really loved about this project is that it doesn't use chipboard. I like chipboard but I hate wrapping it, plus not everyone has chipboard to hand or wants to buy it just to try a project, so this is a nice one to try because you can just use the kind of stuff you use on your cards.

Anyway, this is what it turned out like.





It's really difficult to photograph these, so I made a short video to show you the pages a little better.

If you want to see the video and find a link to a tutorial on how to make this just visit my blog

I used Miss Teagen Sue from Bazill Basics. I've had this collection for a while and I've made a couple of cards with it so I really wanted to use it up. This project was perfect for that as it doesn't take as much as a regular mini album.  I was a little short on pages though, so I did supplement with half a 12 x 12 page of Bo Bunny Double Dot paper, but as I say I had already made 2 cards with the pack previously.

If you wanted to you could make this mini with A4 card, but you would need to cut the measurements for the width down by a smidge, (a bit more complicated then cutting the length down due to all the folds and the scoring) but I used A3 card so was able to do the full width.

I edged everything with Walnut Stain distress ink.


That's all from me today but I hope you feel inspired to make one of these yourself, they really are tons of fun.

My Super Boy


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today.


Can you tell Father's Day is on my mind a little? I think we all know a Super Hero, don't we, so this card is a perfect way to celebrate him. Plus, I got to use my new Die-Namics Lucky Star Dies. Bonus! This little chap is part of a Tiddly Inks Stamp Set, so, you can have plenty of boy mischief with it. And don't get me started on how droolworthy these Lawn Fawn Papers are. Nuff said!

Toni Heart Balloon


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today, and I'm feeling all pink and squishy...


This is an image from Make it Crafty called Toni Heart Balloon and she suited my mood perfectly, along with an image from my fave Paper Smooches Set, Sentiment Sampler. I use these stamps soooooo much! The gorgeous spotty paper comes from the Carta Bella Sew Lovely Paper Pad. I have serious issues cutting the papers in this pad. To finish off, I wanted to frame the image, but I didn't want to doodle, so I used another of my Go To Products, Die-Namics Pierced Rectangle Stax. And that, my friends, is job done!
