Cushions and deals!


We redecorated my daughter's room making it a little more grown up.  All the walls were painted white as it's not a big room.  We decided to add colour with the accessories.  She wanted to have bean bags but as they take up a lot of room we went for large cushions instead.  I bought 3 cushion pads 60cm by 60cm and material but that's how it stayed for several months! 

Then whilst my Mum was up for Mother's day and her birthday we got the sewing machine out and ta da we made 3 cushions!  I am so chuffed how they turned out.  This is a photo of the cushions on her cabin bed. 

 I have some material left over so I'm thinking of making some smaller cushions.  There's no stopping me now!! 

And onto these fantastic deals from Stampin' Up! through April.

Each Wednesday there will be a new set of deals.

Summer Silhouettes Thank You


Good Morning! 

I've survived the sleep over.  The girls have had fun if not a lot of sleep! 

I managed to sneak into my craft room for some crafting TLC whilst the girls took Jess for a walk this morning.  So I've joined in with Less is More which has a one layer week and we've been asked to do some shadow stamping.  You can create some super effects. 

I've used a Crumb Cake card base and stamped Summer Silhouettes in Whisper White then again in Strawberry Slush.  I added the sentiment from Four You.  Then I was off looking for a small butterfly and remembered Elementary Elegance.  It was just the perfect size.  i knew it would be handy to hang onto this set!  It was also stamped first in Whisper White then again in Coastal Cabana.  

This was so quick and easy to do. 

What would you do?  Love to see your creations over at Less is More. x

Gorjuss Stampin' Up!


Gorjuss Fox girl meets Stampin' Up!  

My daughter's birthday was on Wednesday.  She turned the grand old age of 12!  She had a lovely day but her real party is tomorrow.  We are taking her friends to the local fun fair at the beach and then back to ours for a sleepover..  I'm hoping for a sunny day and tired girls by the time they get back to ours! 

As she likes foxes, I just had to have this stamp set when I saw it.  

Once the images were stamped I coloured them in with Copic Sketch pens.  It was fun to do some colouring but I really need more practise.  As Holly's favourite colour is blue, the free papers from Sale-A-Bration - Sweet Sorbet was just perfect.  

I used a 6" by 6" Bashful Blue card base with a Marina Mist mat.  I then cut out a panel with a fancy edge using the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The sentiment is from Four You and trimmed to a banner shape.  I made her name by stamping Outline Alphabet & Numbers letters and cut out.  The girl and the fox are popped up on Dimensionals. 

Here's a look at the inside. 


I better get an early night tonight.  I promised to help my son Ross with his first shot at relief paper boy tomorrow.  A 7.30am start and papers all to be delivered by 8.30am.  So no long lie tomorrow and probably not much sleep at night either.  A bleary eyed Mum on Sunday! 

Hope you have a lovely weekend.  x

Fabulous Florets Perfectly Penned Birthday


I did say that I had another idea for CASe This Sketch and here it is.  You can see the sketch below. 

I stamped the flowers in Rose Red and So Saffron.  I then stamped the sentiment from Perfectly Penned in Versamark and embossed it in black.  I matted it onto Basic Black and and a card base of Smoky Slate.

Simples really.  

Hope you've had a lovely weekend.
Take care. x

Aviary New Home



Hi All.

I was asked to make a new home card and reached for my retired Aviary set.  The birdies with their cages are so cute.  

The challenge at Less is More this week is a touch of turquoise.  I've used Stampin' Up!'s Tempting Turquoise.

I stamped new home using Outline Alphabet & Numbers in Sahara Sand.  I then tore some scrap paper and sponged Tempting Turquoise.  The little cage from Aviary was fussy cut out as was the owl.  Basic Rhinestones hang my little cage from the E.  My card base is Naturals White.

I'm renaming CAS - cute and simple!!

A big welcome to my new follower ELizabeth.  Thanks so much for joining me in my little area of blogland.

I only have 1 place left in my Stamper's 6 starting this month.  To join the fun drop me a line as soon as possible.

We had a busy day in town today.  Why is shopping so exhausting?  It was so nice to come home and chill out with some crafting!

Thanks for visiting.  x x

Gorgeous Grunge Birthday


Yeh it's the Easter Holidays!  The kids have two weeks off and I've two weeks off of early mornings.  Double Yeh!! 

So this afternoon I grabbed some time and joined in with the sketch over at CASe this sketch which you can see below.  I was a bit daunted when I first looked at this sketch so I went with a fairly literal interpretation. 

I used the splodges from Gorgeous Grunge in Basic Grey and Daffodil Delight.  I stamped Off the Grid over the splodges in Basic Grey which I'd stamped off first.  I then added the sentiment at a jaunty angle.  I used Itty Bitty Banners stamped in Summer Starfruit and die cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits.  Then attached to a Smoky Slate panel popped up on some Dimensionals.  A couple of Candy Dots finishes it off.  The Whisper White is mounted onto Smoky Slate then onto a Basic Black card base. 

I'm also going to pop this into Addicted to Stamps and More which has a CAS challenge this week. 

I think it will suit a teen male.  

It was actually easier than I thought it was going to be so you may see another.  

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned with some crafty time included of course! 

Take Care.  x

Just Sayin' Gee Thanks


A little card to share a big Thank You.  

This is my thank you card for last month's Stamper's 6 ladies.  I wanted to show that Zoo Babies can be used for more than baby cards.  

I used my Stampin' Write Markers to colour directly onto the stamps.  The sentiment is from Just Sayin' and die cut with the corresponding framelits.  The Whisper White panel has trimmed edges using the Tiny Wave Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Cutter.  This was so much fun to use.  I was almost searching round the house to see what else I could trim! 

It is always sad when a Stamper's 6 term finishes but it also means a new one is starting.  You are not too late to jump on board and be my newest member of the Virtual Hostess Club. Drop me a line.

Cheers for now.  x
