Silhouette Stamping with Sheena

Hello! After some techinical issues with my internet connection and laptop I'm finally back online with (fingers crossd) no issues!  Lots of online work and emails to get through but my first job is let you know who won my craft candy! Thank you to everyone who entered and the winner, picked by, is...


Well done Jennifer!  Please email me at and let me know your address so I can post your prize out to you.  

Today I'm sharing a quick and simple card made for a friend who has had a really tough couple of two years and I'm really hoping that 2017 will see the dawn break for her as this card suggests.

I made the backgrounds using a simple technique.  I scribbled Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers on to an acrylic block, spiritzed it with plenty of water and than pushed down on to the cardstock.
I make a couple more backgrounds with the left over ink so I didn't waste all the gorgeous colours.  I used one for the insert too. 

Supplies used;

Spectrum Aqua Markers; Evergreen, Wildflower, Scarlet, Marigold and Sunflower.
Creative Crafting World White cardstock
Anna Marie Designs Black cardstock
Silhouette Stamps by Sheena Douglass
Sentiment from A Little Bit Sketchy Dawn Will Break by Sheena

Creative Blessings. x

Scrapping the Summer

We have had very thick frost today and it's been so cold that most of it hasn't melted.  This is my sort of weather, I love the Autumn and Winter.  In fact I could happily hibernate in summer, so the title of this blog post has two meanings, as I do tend to scrap Summer, you are most likely to find me in a dark room with the windows thrown open, the fans on and wearing just enough clothes to appear decent, but that's another story!

By scrapping summer of course I mean scrapbooking. I do have to leave the house in the Summer to walk my Newfoundland, Fergus but we like to go out in the very early morning or late evening and if it's raining you will probably find us outside doing a happy dance! This selfie was taken on one such occasions, I think it was late evening, there was a slight breeze and we had a few spots of rain so that was it we were out door like lightening!  I think you can probably see how happy we are that there was a brief spell of cool weather.

Supplies used;
Serif Craft Artist 2
