For February 2015 Sketch Challenge.



I chose the football pics to go with the circles in the sketch and added other circle embellishments. (I think this is the first time I’ve added stitching to a layout too!)

Using: Kaisercraft card stock, stamps, clear dots and pearls; Stampin’ Up paper; Inque Boutique stamp; Stamp It embossing powder; Thickers alphas; Crate Paper stickers; Micador water soluble pencils; papers, ribbons and cotton from my stash. IMG_4320-0

For You card

For You card

For this card I experimented with the Versamark relief technique. I stamped the butterflies on glossy card stock with Versamark clear ink, then used a brayer to apply Stampin’ Up Brocade Blue and Chocolate Chip inks over the top. Then I embossed the sentiment at the top of the card. I like the result and am looking forward to experimenting some more!

Using: Stampin’ Up card stock, stamp, ink, ribbon and brads, Kaisercraft Cocco papers and Stamp It Liquid Platinum embossing powder


This is a rainy day I project I completed today for the Scrapboxx March Sketch Challenge and the Crafty Crops March Challenge.  
The photo is of my beautiful boy and I at my birthday lunch earlier this month.  I edited it using Instagram for the first time and I really like the effect and the ability to define the focus point.

I love this quote and it really fitted our summer holidays!  I’ve used lots of flowers and love hearts, but I think the colours make them look neutral rather than girly.
