Memory Page - Kuma

Morning Crafters

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page of my dog, Kuma, an Akita. He was our dog before we had Fergus.  Sadly he is no longer with us, it's been a few years and it still leaves me feeling sad but Fergus fills my heart many times over. 

I have used various elements from a Studio Light Paper Pad, doily and rosette from Docrafts, buttons and washi tape from my stash.  The photographs were taken by my dad.

Friendship Hanging Heart

Hello Peeps! 

Earlier in the week I met up with one of my dear friends who I haven't seen in a few months, we have both been busy and she has been away visiting friends and family, it was really good to catch-up.

I made this small hanging heart as a friendship gift.

Wine Cellar

Hello Peeps! 

It's the start of the second week of our holiday (we are not away but taking a break from work).  No specific plans for today, I am meeting up with a friend tomorrow though. 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend's birthday.  This was for a male friend although the card isn't specifically male, it had to be fairly flat and simple so I could post it.

I have used a backing sheet from a Debbi Moore Bookazine and topper and elements from Kanban on a DL card.

Sing Birthday Card

Morning Peeps! 

Wednesday's dental check-up went well but unfortunately the inside of my cheek had a run-in with the Hygienist's tool which gave me a very soare mouth so no tea and cake just straight home for some Ibruprofen.  Today I have a bone scan, I have to have these every couple of years since the chemo.  It doesn't take too long then we have a play date booked for Fergus with my parents Labarador. 

Today I'm sharing a commissioned card.  My customer spotted this previous card and asked for one similar to give to a family member.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Keep on Crafting Shop Blog Makes 6th Sept - 8th Sept

Good Morning Crafters

Not sure what we have planned for today other than a check-up at the dentist, I do have a voucher for tea and cake at one of the cafe's in Bury St Edmunds so maybe we shall treat ourselves to that.

Of course today's blog post is to share my makes from the last week for the shop.

Wednesday's project was two festive tags made with Creative Expressions dies and recycled papers.

On Thursday I shared this Polar Bear stamp on a Brusho stencil background. 

Finally Friday's creation was this stencilled robin using Starlight paints.

Robots in Disguise!

Hello Peeps!

My hubby now has two weeks off work, we have lots planned, today starts with taking our Newfoundland Fergus to the groomers, he is a little over due his 3 month groom. 

Today I am sharing the card I made from my hubby's birthday at the beginning of September.  He is a big Transformers fan, he loved the cartoon as a kid and now really enjoys the films.  Our VW Transporter which we turned into a camper, had a sticker on the back saying "Transporters, Campers in Disguise."  We had a lot of fun camping in it and hope to have another one at some point.

On holiday in Scotland with our VW transporter.  I made the curtains and hanging heart myself. 
The image is a postcard which I bought from Ebay with a bundle of others.  

The cogs, chain, star and Happy Birthday are freebie stamps from Creative Stamping magazine and the Husband is from the Woodware The Waistcoat stamp set from Keep on Crafting.

I have mat and layered it on black cardstock from Creative Crafting World, red and blue paper from my stash and mirri cardstock also from Creative Crafting World.

Mission Inspiration: August 2017

Good Morning Peeps

The end of another week and I've been very busy trying to get ahead of myself.  Hubby now has two weeks off work and we hoping to get a few things in the house and garden down as well as a few trips out and friends visiting so probably not much time to craft. 

Today I'm sharing my first Mission Inspiration.  This is the prompt for August.  I joined the Mission Inspiration Facebook Group a while ago but only just found myself with enough time and courage to take part.  

My journal is spiral bound and measures 7.5 in x 6.5 in it's from Imagination Crafts and I bought it from Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmunds.

The stencil was a freebie from a magazine and the stamp is Prima, also bought from Keep on Crafting.

I have used one of my own photographs for the image. I took this during the Tour of Britain as it passed through Needham Market.

I just read the brief for September and it's going to be very challenging but I'm looking forward to taking part again. 

Creative Blessings.  x

Crystal Art Card Kit - Robin

Morning Peeps! 

I have some more Christmassy bling to share with you today, you can see my previous Christmas bling post here.  

This time I have a sparkly Robin, I particularly like him on the black background. 

Bling isn't something I'm big on but I am so enjoying make these cards and I really think if you can't go bling for Christmas when can you!  Also the crystals look striking rather than overwhelming and tacky.

Crystal Art - CT Post - Christmas in London

Good Morning Crafters

I'm so pleased to be able to tell you that I am part of the Creative Team for Crystal Art Card Kits from Craft Buddy Ltd.  This is my first completed design sample and is one of many new designs that are being released today. 

I find these kits very calming and relaxing, a little like colouring I think it would classed as a mindful type of craft.

You can see my Merry Christmas Tree here.
