A World Of Imagination Sneak Peeks

Hello! I am so excited to welcome you here from my lovely teamie Jaine's Blog as part of the Sarah Hurley World of Imagination blog hop Launch. Sarah has been working on this range for over a year, and we are all so excited to share some of the range with you!

I am delighted to share this amazing Tutu Crown with you!!!!! I LOVE it and cannot wait until I can get one for myself, after all who can resist a bit of princess chic when we are crafting? And best of all, they come in a range of colours.


Each of us teamies will be showing an exciting item that is part of the new range, and if you comment on all of the blogs, the Mayor of Make Believe will be waiting for you to comment on the final blog and he will pick one lucky winner to receive the item of their choice! But please don't wait as the draw closes on the 15th at midnight GMT.

It's time now for you to hop over to the lovely Ria's Blog. Thanks for popping by today x

Light nights and summer brights.

I'm a bit late with my blog post for  my Sarah Hurley 365 Challenge make, and this time the theme is Summer Brights. It is such a lovely cheery post to look through with my awesome teamies making super cheery bright projects, perfect on a grey rainy day like today!

I decided to finally dabble in Project Life, which is quite a big step for me as I have only made a few Scrapbook Lay Outs. 

I subscribe to Sarah's A Few of My Favourite Things Kit and after re-organising them I discovered so many pretty things I had totally forgotten about. How shameful is that?  I love how all the kits work well together and with other goodies in Sarah's Shop like this awesome Moustache Washi Tape! I chose to do the month of January, rather than trying to do one week, I looked through my piccies on my mobile and printed out 4 of my favourite. I then had great fun picking out papers, stamps, embellies and colours to work with. I added some dimension by layer sentiments and shapes on with 3D Foam. Here are the results.

Embossing, distressing and stamping, oh my!

Hello, it's a rainy Saturday here so perfect time for me to catch up with blog posts. Mine tend to be like buses, none for a while then 2 at once!

I am always so nervous making a card for a fellow crafter, and this time was no exception! On the plus side my lovely friend likes purple and butterflies so I used this for ideas.

I had a good prowl through my box o stamps, and pulled out some divine Inkylicious ones I am ashamed to say I have never used *embarrassed face*. I used a postcard stamp and inked it up with some Memento Cocoa Brown as I thought a kinda vintagey look might be nice, and cut it out. I then used Versa Mark ink to stamp on the reeds, embossed them with copper powder, then stamped some wee fairies, used white powder, then added some sparkles to their trails with silver embossing powder.

I then used Milled Lavender and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks to make my background. I punched some teenie tiny flutterbies in purple pearlescent paper to complete the card.  

One of my lovely crafty friends sent me some gorgeous papers and other goodies this week, and one of the papers was just perfect for the layer underneath and the sentiment. Talk about awesome timing.

Thanks for popping by today.
