You're the best!!

Good morning you lovely lot! 

I'm checking in with you this morning with some My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration. Using a bunch of Lawn Fawn goodies - which Kitty will have back in stock ASAP! You don't wanna miss out. Keep your eyes peeled for our newsletter dropping into your inbox. 

I used the THANKS DIE from Lawn Fawn to create my own chipboard word. I die cut the thanks with some navy blue cardstock 4-5 times and layered them up.

I then stamped a sentiment from Thank You Tags before cutting it with a die from Blueprints 20 from MFT and layering it over a tag cut using another Lawn Fawn die.

As a little whimsy, I stamped coloured and die cut a little critter from Monster Mash stamp set and matching die and tucked it behind the tag.

That's about it. Oh, and my papers are old My Minds Eye!

Thank you for stopping by today! xo

You are so nice.

Morning guys! I'm back on track (blog wise *I think*) and I'm back with the next instalment of Little Miss Muffet Stamps goodness! 

This time round I used the gorgeous Sugar 'n Spice Doll Sassafras. I love everything about this little girl. She's adorable, don't ya think? I coloured her with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.

I coloured her up to match my papers from Echo Park. I paired her up with an Amy R sentiment stamped in Memento Rose Bud ink. I also added a bunch of paper flowers and leaves before adhering everything together and adding some clear rhinestones to finish it up.

Thank you for stopping by today! xx

Butterfly Wedding

Yet another card, from way back last year. That I failed to share with you guys. Nightmare.

I tried to match the invite up as closely to the invitation as I could - I thought it'd be a nice touch. 

I love the minty green colour. I think I used up the last of that ribbon on this card - but it was so worth it! :) xx

New Beginnings

Good morning you lovely lot! :)

It's time for a new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers.

This week it's my turn to set the challenge theme, and I wanna see..


This could be anything from a new baby, a new home, a new job or perhaps tying the knot.

I have had this set from Some Odd Girl for some time now. The amazing Faye kindly mailed them over to me and had since been sitting in my *to use* pile, patiently waiting.

I adored making this card. Quick, punny and easy to put together. In fact, I'd go as far to say I love this set. Why have I left it hanging around, unloved, for so long?! The perfect wedding card for close friends, I reckon. I know my friends would appreciate something *different* like this.

That's my inspiraton for ya today. I do hope you find time to join in with this challenge.
Head over to Passion for ProMarkers for more inspiration and to leave your link so we can have a snoop around at your entry and your blog! Hugs. xo

The Birthday Fairy

*waves* I can't believe I didn't share this card with you guys waaay back at the beginning of November. I am terrible, I know!!

I made this card for a girl who is a lover of many things. Many things of which I tried to squeeze onto the card without it looking ridiculous.

Fairies, stars, toadstools, butterflies and flowers! Naturally, like most 11 year old girls she's a huge lover of pink, so I went really pink with some hot pink ribbon and flowers. Hopefully by age 24 she'll have grown out of it slightly! ;) It's not one of my favourite, in case you guys didn't already know.

I used the adorable Charlotte from Funky Kits. Grab her while you can as she's retiring soon. I also used some toadstool stamps from Some Odd Girl which I always have a blast colouring up as well as a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

I used my Cameo to create her name and age before stamping a Paper Smooches banner with Lawn Fawn alpha stamps to create happy birthday and added it all the card.

As finishing touches I chose some flat and 3D paper flowers, some glittery buttons and a whole load of liquid pearls and sequins. Job. Done. xx
