Wedding Card Inspo...

I'm back again today to share with you a couple of cards that I made upon request from a work colleague. It's been yonks since I made a wedding card, so this was truly a labour of love.

For the first one I went with understated elegance. White with a light grey ribbon and silver heat embossed sentiment.

The second card is a tad more detailed. The Bride & Groom are heat embossed with black embossing powder. I've used the Kaisercraft window die. The sentiment is also heat embossed with Stampin' Up! Pool Party embossing powder.

This was quite a bit of fun today, so much that I feel the need to do more! :D  Thanks for looking xx

D-lish Scraps Pretty in Pink

Two blog posts in one day! It's an absolute miracle :D  I love D-lish Scraps' Challenges but I rarely get to participate, like most other Challenges. However, I knuckled down today and got this one done.

Isn't it pretty!!  I don't usually use a lot of pink in my layouts but I had the perfect photo for this Challenge. The sketch helped as well.

I've pretty much followed the sketch as is and included the required shades of pink and added some butterflies. Of course I had to include a D-lish Typewriter Flair as well :)

This photo is all about the pink hat. DD's dress was white lace and her newly acquired hot pink hat gave her quite a "boho" look. I added some white lace to the page inspired by her dress.

I'm sure that'll be enough pink to last me a while now :D   Thanks for looking xx

Scrap the Girls March Challenge

Hello everyone! It's been quite a while since I've joined in on a Challenge over at Scrap the Girls, and so while browsing a few of my favourite online Challenge sites, this particular Challenge jumped out at me.

Let me assure you that I do not do Selfies. Mainly because I'm useless at it and manage to make myself look like either a criminal, deformed or something the cat has dragged in off the street. But my DD however is great at it and she took the most amazing Selfie whilst on a recent trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. Her and her partner we invited to a local Cambodian home for dinner. The house was full of extended family and as usual my girl was a magnet for all the children of the household (hence why she's a teacher).  This is the result of her whipping out her phone to amuse them:

Such gorgeous little faces!  I've used the Kaisercraft Hanami Garden Collection for this layout and the beautiful lace was an added addition to the Kit from the February Creative Kit Club.

Thanks for looking once again xx

Kraft Plus March Challenge

Finally I've had the time to sit down and just create! Oh the freedom!!! It's so good for the Soul. After attending to a few committments this morning I jumped into the latest Challenge over at Kraft Plus - A Denim Revolution.

I didn't have any old denim fabric lying around so I went with the Denim paper. It's not very often I get a photo with my Dad, so I will cherish this recent photo of the two of us.

I used some Colour Blast Shimmer Dust in Navy on the background along with white paint and red ink. I also die cut the Mandala with the Kaisercraft Mandala Die.  I hope you get a chance to join in this month over at K+.  Thanks for looking xx

Wildflower....Uniquely Creative March Kit

Hello fellow crafters, welcome back. Just a quick post today to share with you the cards that I created for the current Uniquely Creative Kit. I'm sure most of you have already seen these either on FB or on the Uniquely Creative website. However, I have a confession to make...when I first received these papers I really wasn't sure about them. I absolutely love water colours but I'm always hesitant to use pastel colours only because I don't think I do them the justice that they deserve. Having said that, I jumped in and now I'm happily in love with how soft and pretty these colours are! I have gained some confidence and have made a pact with myself to use more of these colours in future projects.

So here are the cards that you'll find in the current catalogue which you'll receive with your March Kit.

And I thought I'd experiment with incorporating black with Pastels. Very happy with the outcome! :)

Thanks for looking xx
