The theme this week over at Less is More is Circles,  mmmmmmmm had to put my thinking cap on for this, then I suddenly remembered the stamps I bought last year from Woodware and  here we are another Christmas card done

stamped with versafine black and embossed with clear powder, coloured with copics and then blinged up with gems, stickles and glossy accents.

Look forward to reading your comments, they are much appreciated.

Merly Impressions

Yesterday I attended the first ever Merly Impressions scrapbooking crop in Bedford, I left Leicester at 8am in the pouring rain could hardly see through the windscreen and travelled down the M1 to Bedford, arrived at about 9.30am for a 10 oclock start.  Kit was made up with the new Blae & Ivy collection from Kaisercraft

Here are the layouts I made from the kit :-

I had a lovely day meeting with other like minded people doing something I enjoy and having some retail therapy with yummy Kaisercraft goodies.  4pm saw it time to go home and what a difference the journey back was, sun was streaming and I needed my sunglasses.
Thanks Chrissy & Co from Merly Impressions for a lovely day.

Spent a lovely day today crafting with a friend, experimenting with hobby art scene it stamps, I'd seen these recently being demo'd and bought a couple of sets and then got home not sure where to start, so we got together to share and have a play, I feel quite pleased with the finished results

Thanks for a lovely day Maureen

Shades of Blue

The theme this week over at Less is More is colour and they've decided on shades of blue.
Its quite difficult keeping to one colour


I started by collecting together various shades of blue inkpads and then using a Crafters Workshop template did the main image.  Mounted this onto 2 shades of blue card and then punched some tiny flowers using my woodware punch and stuck them on top some of the inked flowers, finishing with some gems for a bit of bling.  The sentiment is a Lily of the Valley stamp.

I look forward to receiving your comments.


What a fantastic weekend with sunshine all the way.  Had a good time at my Scrapaholix group yesterday, nice to meet up with everyone and natter whilst we scrapped and today have been Crafty Notions in Newark to see some demo's together with a little retail therapy

Here's a couple of layouts that I finished.
