This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Stork Card - Graphic 45 Baby 2 Bride

Hello Everyone

A colleague is going off on maternity leave soon and so I was asked to make a card for her.

I used the soft and pretty Baby 2 Bride collection from Graphic 45.
Since it's going to be a boy, I emphasised blue.


I also used a chipboard piece from Enmarc, which I embossed with distress embossing powder.


I did a fair amount of fussy cutting! ;-)


I hope she will he happy with it.

Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visits.

Have a super day!

Story/Win Layout - ScrapBerry's Edge of Town Collection

Hello Everyone

Apologies for being missing in action but I was really not well last week.
Thank goodness I am sooo much better and feeling myself again! ;-)

I was up on the ScrapBerry's blog with a mixed media layout, which I really love.
It's been a while since I created a rather masculine page.

Here's the page.


I used the Edge of Town Collection, which is soooo cool! ;-)
I has rusty elements and cogs...so perfect for boys! ;-)


I also used some of the Pentart Rust Effect solutions on some washers, to make them old and rusty.


I also used stamps and inks for the background.  I kept it masculine and fairly simple.

I would love it if you popped along to ScrapBerry's and had a peek...

ScrapBerry's Supply List:
Edge of Town 12x12" Paper Collection (SCB220608300b)

I hope you are all well.
Wishing you a stunning week too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Summer Paradise - Penelope Dee

Hello Everyone

I had the absolute privilege of playing with the Summer Breeze Collection from Penelope Dee.
So thanks a ton Glenda, for this fabulous opportunity.

Here's the first page I created.


I used the Penelope Dee stencil and some crackle paint and watercolour features for the background, along with some fussy cut circles and paint splatters.

Here's some close-ups.




I also used some brown beads on the background. On the chipboard pieces I heat embossed with Distress powders.


This collection is really so versatile and can be used for feminine or masculine pages.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super day!

Art Journal Page - Berry71Bleu November Mood Board

Hello Everyone

I am up on the Berry71Bleu blog today, with an art journal page.

Here's the fabulous mood board this month.

14364679_10206757707012390_7625554073151661415_n.jpg (480×480)

Here is my take.


I used the Summer Breeze Collection from Penelope Dee.
I loved this sentiment and so that was the inspiration, along with the colours, which were perfect for the mood board.


There are many layers of paint, stamping, stencilling and bits of patterned papers.


I am happy with how it turned out.

There is still time to play along with the mood board.
You have until 30 Nov.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous day!
