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.

Teachers Gift

Hello Everyone

I am on leave and I am really enjoying getting some stuff done at home and also getting ready for Christmas with some shopping etc.
It's amazing but the days seem to go even faster than they normally do!!!

My son had an amazing teacher this year and so I really wanted to give her something special.
So I altered a stationery holder for a gift for her.

I found this cute apple. I just applied a crackle effect to it and then filled it with pens and goodies.

Simple but effective! ;-)

She really loved it and I was pleased about that!

I know the difference that she made to my son this year and I know how important it is to have a good and engaged teacher! I wish more teachers were like her!

Anyways, have a good day and let me know how your Christmas "getting ready" is going! ;-)
Cheers for now.

Another Year Flies By - BoBunny

Hello Everyone

Yesterday I shared an autumn card and today I am sharing a similar yet different card.
I used the same BoBunny stamps as yesterday and created a unisex card, which I think could be used for a male or female recipient.

The colours and design just lends itself to either masculine or feminine.
I thought that was rather a bonus! ;-)

I heat embossed and stamped the leaves on BoBunny cardstock and then cut them out and layered them over the flat stamped leaves.

I really love this design and I think I will try and do something similar again, with it.

Thanks again for popping in!
I really appreciate the visit!
Have a super day!

Craft Stamper November

Hello Everyone

I was so excited to have a card published in the November Craft Stamper.
This was the cover..

and here is the article..

I used mostly BoBunny products on this card.
Here's a closer view.

The colour palette was really inspirational and I loved these autumn colours.

Of course, the stamping and fussy cutting, was right up my alley too! ;-)

If you haven't picked up a copy of this should really try and get your hands on it.
It is super inspirational and has fabulous creative ideas! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a good one!

I hope that you are having a great weekend! ;-)

Here's the page.

Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone

I have really discovered that I so enjoy making art journal pages and I love trying new and different things.

Here is a page that I created a while back.

I used some Basic Grey stickers that I have had in my stash for years.

I also played with my distress oxides and acrylic, highly pigmented Pentart paint.

Here is a close-up of the sentiment too.

Have you tried some art journalling? It really is very liberating! ;-)

Have a super day!

Christmas Card - Distress Oxides

Hello Good People

Today I have a little Christmas Card to share with you.
I used Distress Oxides for the background, along with some heat embossing.

I so love how one can easily blend the colours.

I added a small cluster in the middle, with a pop of colour.

I added some gems to the snowflake centres and again, used an old rub-on for the greeting.

I hope you have made some Christmas cards this year! ;-)

See you back tomorrow..
Have a super day!

Discover,Escape Tag - Distress Inks - Take it Make it Challenge Dec

Hello Everyone

I did this tag quite a few weeks ago and I am now finally sharing it.

I used the paint resist method, again, with distress inks and a stencil and then I added some stamping. I also used some rub-ons that I have had for ages.

I also stamped, coloured and fussy cut the flower cluster too. The flower cluster was layered over a leaf chippie.

Here's a closer look at that background.

I am also entering this tag in the Take it, Make it Dec Challenge, over at the Craft Stamper here.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit.
Have a super day!
