Spring/Summer Blog Hop

Hi All,

So today I'm taking part in a blog hop with some demonstrators that are in my wider team. You may have come from Helga Brown's blog post & if so welcome to this hop. If you have started here than it is great to see you here, at the bottom of the post is next & previous buttons to take you through the blog hop.

The theme for this blog hop is 'Spring/Summer Catalogue' so I thought I would ink up the lovely hot air balloon stamp 'You Lift Me Up.' Here is what I created: 


I used reinkers to create the ink pad by adding a few drops to a wet wipe in a stamp case & created these wonderful balloons, here is a close up: 

The colours I used were Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach & Rich Razzleberry, which is the Fab Friday colour challenge that I've taken part in:

Here is a closer look at both of them, you can see how different each one is due to the bleeding of the ink on the wet wipe. 

Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting,

Here are the buttons to continue onto the next blog hop:


  1. I can't believe I've never tried this technique - these came out amazing! Totally going for it now, lol. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  2. Such a fun technique that I haven't done in forever! The hot air balloons look great with the blend of the challenge colors! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  3. This is just fabulous! I love the layout and all the white space with all the color too! Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!

Scrapbook Blog Hop May 2018

Morning all! It's that time for another awesome Scrapbooking blog hop! I can't wait to see all of the inspiration from all of the other demonstrators from around the world! 

This month's theme is floral's & I'm currently in love with my garden, it's still developing but I have quite a few bulbs & flowers in plant pots so love being able to move them around. The past couple of weeks in the UK the weather has been lovely so a lot of the flowers have been coming out as we had quite a cold patch!! Anyway onto the project I want to show you: 

Yes I have wheelbarrows as my planters!! :D Here is a more recent picture of them: 

Anyway, back to the actual scrapbook page, I used the Eastern Beauty stamp set & the Eastern Medallions dies, I stamped the Whisper White 12x12 paper with Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie ink & cardstock. Here is a step by step guide on how I created this:

With the Eastern Medallions die I created flowers & hooke…

I had to go & look through some of my pages already as my parents are currently up so had a lovely day at a flower show yesterday so will show you those photos in a future scrapbook hop. I hope you enjoy this scrapbook page that is from our holiday to the Lake District almost 2 years ago! It was a glorious day after finding out that Brexit had happened here in the UK. Anyway enough of my waffling here is what I created: 

I use the 'Remarkable You' stamp set to create the big leaves & then used my blender pen to shade in, I've also used 'Jars of Love' for some more foliage & the 'Playful Backgrounds' in Bermuda Bay I think!! On Soft …

Whenever I see card sized envelopes in the my letterbox, my face always lights up & I can't wait to get in the house & open the envelope with a lovely cup of tea. Do you do this? This passed month I received the following cards from very talented people:
