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.

Seriously Awesome Mini Album - Penelope Dee - Artisan

Hello Everyone

I am on a Penelope Dee sharing frenzy, as I have not shared these projects in a while!

So today I am back with a little mini album, using the Artisan Collection.


I really love the masculine feel of this collection, with the leather elements and fabulous, earthy colouring.


I added buttons and yarn string for embelishments.


I kept the album masculine and so there are no flowers or delicate elements here! LOL

I recently brought some brushes which I have been using with my distress oxides and inks, for a much softer touch and you can see the result below. I absolutely adore my new brushes.


I plan to add some more pages to this album, time allowing!

Thanks for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit!
Have a fabulous day!

Adventure Layout - Penelope Dee PostCard Collection

Hello Everyone

This layout really took me back a few years, to before I was even married and Johann and I were still dating. That is a lifetime ago....LOL

Anyways, I used the Penelope Dee PostCard collection for this adventure layout.

We had taken a trip on the steam train from Pretoria to Cullinan and then had a picnic there for the day and then travelled back again on the train.  It was a fabulous day.

I layered up lots of fussy cut bits, from the patterned paper, behind the photo. I love the vintage envelopes, tags etc. from this collection.


I used lots of stamps to add to the postage, vintage feel.


I handmade the little blue flowers and then added touches of brown to the edges.


I still have lots of plans for the remainder of this collection but just need time to play some more.
Soon..... :-)

This was a fabulous walk down memory lane and I loved creating with these papers. They made me very nostalgic! ;-)

Have you had a walk down memory lane lately??

Have a super day!
