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.

General Tag - Graphic 45 / Sizzix

Hello Everyone

2 posts in 1 day! I can back to share another project with you...a general tag.
I dove into my stash again and used some French Country from Graphic 45 and a Sizzix die cut that is really so gorgeous! ;-)

Here's the tag.

I just love this collection because of the beautiful sunflowers. Sadly I have used every little last sunflower on this tag. But yes, there was no wastage of any little scrap! ;-)

I have wanted to use this die for ages now and so I was pleased that I got to use it on this tag.

Sizzix Thinlits Die - Loyal Cherish

Item #661065

 It is a beauty! ;-)
Here's a closer look.  I used some gold pearlescents for highlights.

I also used some black pearlescents for the dots.
Pop over here for some more Sizzix intricate die-cuts.
Thanks so much for stopping by!I hope you have a super evening!Denise x

Birthday Card - October Afternoon

Hello Everyone

It's my sons Birthday today and so I have a Birthday Card to share with you.

Firstly, happy Birthday to my Boy! He is 9 today! ;-)
The time has flown and I really don't know where the last 9 years have gone.
But he's a good boy and I love him dearly!

Here's a photo of the big man, in his bed this morning! ;-)

I made this card for him.

I used some October Afternoon bits and pieces along with a Celebr8 stencil and some BoBunny black gesso. I kept it fresh and upbeat...I think perfect for a boy! ;-)

I certainly am happy that I was also able to use some goodies from my stash.

Anyways, off to get some dinner and celebrate a little! ;-)
So enjoy your evening too!
Cheers for now!

I Love Adventure - BoBunny Take a Hike Collection

Hello Everyone

I am so thrilled to be staying with BoBunny for another term! ;-)
I cannot tell you what a joy and thrill it is to be on this team! ;-)

Anyways, I created a double pager, which is something that I have not done in years!
But I must admit, that I am really happy with it and how it turned out! ;-)

I used the Take a Hike Collection from BoBunny.  It was so perfect for these photo's of our fly fishing trip a few years ago.  It was 2010 and Joe was just 4 years old.
My boy turns 9 in 2 yes, time has certainly rolled on.

Here are the individual pages.

I did some water colour effects, with gesso and stamping and also added some paint splashes.

I love these photo's of Joe and Johann.  They are so special!

Anyways, thanks for stopping by.
I really do appreciate your comments and love!

Have a super evening!

Magical Art Journal Page - Berry71Bleu - July Challenge

Hello Everyone

I was up on the Berry71Bleu blog to share my take on this month's mood board! ;-)

Here is the mood board.

This board really challenged me and I created something that possibly I wouldn't have created, without this little nudge.  I am pleased with it though and very happy with the way it turned out.

Here's the page.

I used a "magical" sentiment, which was the inspiration for the scene I created.

"She wanted to touch dragonflies and stars
Dance with fairies and talk to the Moon"

So below is the moon, the stars and the dragonflies.

I also used bits and pieces from the BoBunny Enchanted Garden collection and used the fairy from this collection.

I actually used loads of BoBunny products and will list them at the end of the post.

Lastly, here is a look at the bottom of the art journal page.
I used a tree die-cut and some distress ink to create the tree silhouette's.

Maybe you fancy playing along?

You have until 31 July to add your projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!
