Chin, chin!


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

Ok, tell me you don't look at this fab Stamping Bella image (I have such a Girl Crush on Stamping Bella. I think I might propose. It is a Leap Year after all!) and know straightaway which girl pal is clinking with you! Not only that, but you've been eyeballing her favourite ring for years. Yeah, I see you!

So, have I mentioned my Stamping Bella Girl Crush? I am seriously swooning over the latest release, (a number of which are sitting on my desk, thanks to the Enabling Services provided by Tracy. And you get Loyalty Points. Sheesh!) I have it on good authority there is another coming in the not too distant future. Yep, warn your Bank Managers, Peeps, this is on.

Out of this world..........

Morning everyone!

Lou in with a post for you today with a couple of makes using those super cute 'Out of this world' stamps and dies from My Favorite Things new release

Having a little guy in the house I just couldn't resist this set (...which roughly translates at 'when the little guy was making his list of what we neeeeeeeeeeeeded from the new MFT release, these stamps and dies were right at the top!!!!!) but seriously, I couldn't wait to get stuck in as soon as they arrived on thursday.

The little stars in the sky die is just perfect for layering some fun into the background, I LOVE it! I matted up a yellow piece of cardstock so that when I cut the stars in the sky die, those yummy little yellow stars really stood out sooo cute!! plus you get a tonne of gorgeous mini stars to use as confetti on another make. I actually used a few to create a little starry bottom inside the card below.

Thank you for popping in

Caroling Chicks

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :) 

Now. I know you're going to be looking at me, and looking at this card and then wondering about my Mental Stability. Fear Not. Christmas is cool. I luuuuuurve Christmas. Especially when there is about eleven months between me and it. *Happy Sigh*. Yes. I love colouring Christmas images. Especially when they are as cute as these Stamping Bella Chicks. A-ha! Blame Tracy

I love the Stamping Bella Stamps, more often that not they come with a THE perfect sentiment, which makes pulling a card together easy peesy. 

Now, don't forget to pop into Store on Wednesday morning, the new MFT Release will be in. I'm gonna be twiddling my thumbs until then!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today, sharing some new gorgeousness from Whimsy Stamps :)

This lovely girl is called Milly and she's by Elisabeth Bell. I must confess to having a bit of a soft spot for these delicate girls and their pretty faces. They remind me a little of some crockery my Nan had when I was a little girl. Who doesn't like those kind of memories?

Anyhoo, I thought she'd go well with the My Favourite Things Plaid Patterns Papers and voila!

Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a great day.

Wool you be mine?......

Hi everyone!
My new stamps and dies arrived yesterday and I scooched up the energy to have a little play because they were just too cute to leave in the packet. It took 3 bursts at it to get it done, energy is severely lacking and colouring and coughing don't mix too good but I love this little make now its done!! 

So, above is on the front when the note is closed, below is the back when the note is closed...

and this is the inside!! soooo cute!!!!!
so cute! and thats me for today. I had to go to the Drs...again...this morning and have a poopy respiratory infection. There's not a lot that can be done for it so rest, fluids, trying to eat and have been deemed unfit for work for 7 days, never had an actual piece of paper to deem me unfit for work before so I feel a bit blurgh just seeing it there on the table!!! Virus's stink don't they? so to cheer myself up, here's a video of how this little cutie opens while I go mooch and feel sorry for myself that my daft lil body can be so knocked out by a dang virus :(

huge hugs for you all, Lou xxxxx

So, it looks like I actually don't mind colouring Christmas images in January! Don't hold you're breath though, I'm not sure if this is going to take on or not. Watch this space...

I've used some scraps of paper from an old Lawn Fawn Paper Pad. But, I spotted some rather scrummy papers in the latest My Favourite Things Release that would be a perfect like for like. I neeeeeeeeeeed these!

See, paper pads. Not just for Christmas, you heard it here first!

'ellie' loves 'phant' stuffies.......

Morning everyone! Lou in with a post for you today using one of the super cute Stamping Bella stuffies

They are just adorable! I popped that yummy Dienamics stitched cover up companion horizontal frame upon some foam so I could recess the delicious  Echo Park Head over Heels papers into the cut out pieces, and then popped out my little ellie's on some foam on top of that so its a little cute card full of dimension IRL.

Candy Cane Shaker Bear

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

 After making my Gingerbread Card the other day, I decided I wanted to make a little keepsake that we could get out each Christmas. I have a huge soft spot for this cute Whimsy Stamp called Candy Cane Bear, so, I made a Shaker Box Frame for him to live in. Now, don't be getting overwhelmed by my creativity, coz I can't make a straight box, let alone a shaker frame. But, after buying a Shaker Box Frame, I did stick a load of sequins, beads and the image inside the box, all by myself. I know. I need a cup of tea!
