January Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop

Happy Sunday everyone, even if it is a bit wet & miserable here in the UK. It's great to see you here for another Blog Hop with an amazing group of people from all over the world. If you've come from Charlet's page it's great to see you, if you've started here then hit the next icon at the bottom of the page & you can see all 14 of the talented creations.

This month's theme was a colour challenge of Black, Coral & Green. Well the colours didn't stop me I picked out the ink pads Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Emerald Envy & Lemon Lime Twist (which is borderline green...hehe). I then picked out one of the lovely black designer series paper from the Petal Passion suite & then I drew a blank slightly. I was rummaging through all my photos & believe me I have tons - even with running & going to a monthly scrapbooking class!! 

I had left my scrapbooking album at home so couldn't remember what I had already scrapped so that really frustrated me! I then stumbled across some pictures from an historic site we visited back in September, then it was just choosing which colours to mount on etc. That's enough of me waffling here is what I created: 


It was fun to explore tunnels that are under the train station in my home town of Bristol, below is some close up shots which I will explain. 


1) Is a close up of all the railway stations, some of them are no longer in use & some still are. Obviously we went on the train, so where the pearls are is the route we took from the top is Avonmouth - the bottom left one which is Bristol Temple Meads. 
2) I used the Perfect Day Memories & More kit, which I totally forgot used the colours I had picked - was looking through the catalogue to give me inspiration & then had a lightbulb moment!! I pulled these cards out & used one of the Emerald Envy 3x4 cards for my journaling - using all the colours :)
3) One of the 4x6 Memories & More cards had this lovely Makes Me Smile sentiment so I got the 2" circle punch & layered that on some coral designer series paper from the Daisy Delight suite & punched it with the Starburst punch & raised the lovely sentiment up with dimensionals. 

Thanks for popping by & I hope to see you again next month on 17th March.

Monthly Scrapbooking Blog Hop

Afternoon all,

Hope you are all well & getting into the festive spirit with just over a week away!! Have you still got some Christmas shopping to do? I've got a few items to still get, hopefully can do it this coming week!

Anyway, I'm going to be showing regular scrapbook projects with an amazing Blog Hop team, I'm so privileged to have been asked to be part of this awesome team of demonstrators from all over the world!



The lovely Pam Staples who is part of the hop created this lovely sketch to follow:


I really enjoyed creating this project & I've used some sneak peeks that will be coming out in January when the Spring/Summer catalogue goes live. The first picture is a my work in progress of the design before I was happy. I used the lovely Petal Passion suite: 


Here is what the finished page looks like, I used the co-ordinating stamp set to create the flowers & the bottom of the page, mounted the pictures/journaling in Rose Red & Perfect Plum. A little bling & a few things about where I live in the UK, my age etc: 



Take a look round the rest of the teams projects by clicking the links below:

RAK Blog Hop



Good Morning all,

On facebook I am part of an amazing group, which is called RAK card group - so every month there is an event to send out a card to anyone who is in the group. You never know who you will receive one off so it is always a lovely surprise to receive a lovely card in the post.

I'm going to share with you some of the cards I've sent out in October & the beginning of this month. As well as the cards I've received from Australia, UK & United States. I also sent mine to these locations.

Here are a few of the ones I sent, I don't always send out the same cards, which is why I can't remember what I've sent, it is only by those that have posted in the group to say they've received them that I can share them with you.

This one I sent to the lovely Priscilla in Australia:


This one to the gorgeous Ruth in the UK:


I sent one to Annie in North Dakota, but can't remember which one I sent her!

I am pictured with all of the ones I've received.

Michelle sent me this one from Texas:

Annie sent me this from North Dakota:

Fiona from the UK:

Jane from Australia sent me this one this past week:

I received my first Christmas card from Nicky in San Diego this week & I was a little surprised to receive it so early:

Thanks for stopping by & I hop you have enjoyed seeing what I've sent & received this past few weeks. Remember to see what some of the other people from the group have received & sent by clicking there links below:


See you again soon,

Autumnal Love

Hi Everyone, 

I haven't posted in a while, I really don't know where the time seems to be going! It is a nice autumnal day here in the UK & I spotted this great challenge over at Card Concept here is the inspirational image:

A wonderful autumnal theme, so I made this lovely card:


This stamp set creates so much depth with just a couple of stamps, I then just added a bold sentiment mounted on a scalloped edge square with some jute twine. 

Thank you for stopping by & happy stamping,

Thankful Colour Challenge

Hi there, 

I'm taking part in the Colour INKspiration Challenge again & these are the lovely colours the challenge has got for us: 


This is a Facebook Group but it is so inspiring to see all the creations pop up in one place, so I wanted to ink my Painted Harvest stamp set so I used these colours to create this alternative colour arrangement for the sunflower image: 


I really like the contrast with the Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise, I didn't think much of the Pool Party at first & then as soon as I stamped the Tempting Turquoise I was like WOAH!! That is amazing! Here is the card stood up: 



I hope you like it & thanks for popping by,
