Summer Memories

Morning Everyone,

Hope you all had a good weekend.  I have had a busy weekend out both Friday and Saturday night so yesterday was playing catch up.

This week we have a theme of Summer Memories.  For me when I was little the summer was a time when Dad took time off of work and we travelled to Devon for our family holiday.  The car packed up with the tent and we are jammed in sitting on pillows and pots and pans surrounding us.  Mum used to pack a huge lunch box full of sandwiches for our pit stop on the way.

We used to  look for winkles and catch the little crabs in the pools between the rocks and just generally be kids. So I have chosen a Pion Design image of this boy in the Port fishing as my image for Summer Memories.



The papers are from the Pion Design Shoreline collection along with the image.

The seagulls across the top and the single one positioned on the flowers are cut from Marianne Design Dies CR1279 and CR1277


Flowers are made up of tulips, carnations, foam flower buds and stems, 30mm wild rose and a little butterfly added, again from the same collection of papers.


I added a few seashore treasures namely shells and a corked vial which could do with a little message in it.

You can also see the Princess Grace lace close up and all the beautiful pearls, this is definitely my all time favourtie leace.



Have a good week.

Figgy Pudding & Lots More....

Morning Everyone,

I have another card to share with you..... I know what's happened this week, lol.  It's a Christmas Card using one of the new oh so cute Bebunni Stamps from BunnyZoe.  The papers are also by Bebunni and I was trying no to cover up the little bunny on the bottom left, as these match the images in the collection.

I have also used more Marianne Design Dies, the Star Bauble tucked inbetween two sheets of papers on the left and and the bauble on the bottom right, plus the little jingle bells in the top right hand corner.


The image is called Figgy Pudding and right now BunnyZoe have 15% off this collection.


Here's a close up of the Marianne Design star bauble.  I stamp christmas text of the nested star and added some snow tex.




BunnyZoe Ingredients:-


Marianne Design Dies from Craftsulove



This card should have published when I was away, but it's never too late, hey.  It is a new home card I made for my sister.  The Marianne Designs dies came in real handy.




BunnyZoe Ingredients:-

Live and Love Craft Ingredients:-


And yet another card, that again should of published when I was away.  This little lady is just so adorable and is just back in stock at BunnyZoe.  Of course she is a Magnolia image called Sneaky Tilda, really love this little lady.

The papers are also by Magnolia as are the little Narcissus flowers, with a little gesso so the yellow centres are muted and more suited to the style of card.

She is coloured with distress inks and layered onto lace and a Marianne Design Frame.

Dashing Through the Snow....

Hello Everyone,

I know I have a christmas card to share with you and it's only August, lol, I blame Lili of the Valley myself bringing out such cute stamps, lol.

Soooooo dashing through the snow or hurtling more like, lol.  Now a couple of posts back you would of seen the new Marianne Design Window die I used but opened the window up and made a summer scene, well today I have a winter scene and I have added the die cut snow pieces to the window with some snow tex.


I made an Aperture with the window and added accetate so I could attach the snow die cuts.  The tree is also a Marianne Design die.

This is what it looks like on the inside.  It's very difficult to photograph as the accetate reflects the light.



Here is the little chap with a little chunky white frantage dotted around.




All the papers used are from Michelle Roos Digital Paper Collection and I used Winter Frost.  These can all be found HERE.

The next picture looks wonky but it's not really, just the angle that I took the picture from.


Copics Used:-

Skin E00, E000, E11, E04 Blush R20
Blues B91, B93, B95, B97
Snow/White BG0000, BG000, C5, C3, C1
Browns E53, E50, E49, E47, E44, E43, E40, E31, E25

Just Like That


I'm back with post number two today, if your looking for my BunnyZoe challenge card, please scroll down.

So onto card no. 2 which is my DT card for Live and Love Crafts and this week the theme we are all challenged with is "Magic".  I have to say that I have been dying to ink up this image from Stempleglede since I received these stamps so I am going to make it fit whatever the theme, lol.  Soooo magic it is........ well all magic shows have birds don't they?  Well turtledoves but they still have feathers, ........ so I'm going with birds coming out of a hat but they didn't want to hang around and have gone out the window and found a lovely vintage garden.  

The image probably needs no introduction but I'm going to tell you anyway, lol.  The most beautiful vintage stamps every by Stempleglede right here at Live and Love Crafts, I was sooooo happy when Sandy said she would be stocking them.  I have also stamped the Carte Postale text along the side and decorated the edges using the corner stamp from the Vintage Garden set.


The gorgeous papers are from the Maya Design Coffee in the Harbour collection and I have used 12x12 sheets Enjoying the moment and Blueberry cupcake.

Both shapes used are Go Kreate Dies and edged with White Gesso.


I have added two tags into a little Envelope and added some shabby seam binding and twine and one of my favourtie charms, the 3D bucket, this is soooooo cute.


Along the bottom I have used some shabby ruffle in white and entwined some pearl string around it and finished with a layer of Fluerie lace and a little Prima Resin Angel guarding the vintage garden.


I also stamped Happy Birthday from the Stempleglede Just a Note stamp set and as you can see this tucked in nicely under the image.


The flower arrangement is made up of wild roses, open roses, sweetheart blossoms, foam buds and a dashing of gesso.
