Studio 12 Shabby Chic Roses for Rosie .....

Rosie, my son's girlfriend recently celebrated her birthday and Luke asked me to make her a card .... not to give from him (!) but from us! Rosie had let slip a while back that she has never had a card with her name on it, so that was my starting point ......



I have used the lush Studio 12 Shabby Chic Roses stamp set from Polka Doodles (big A5 set) which have been stamped and coloured them Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint distressed ink. The rose buds have the word "elieve" stamped at the bottom ... so cute. I stamped around the edges of my card using the leaves from the Studio 12 Pretty Petal Bunting set in peeled paint and blended around the edges.


The postcard has been using Studio 12 Picknix CD using roses paper which has been faded out. I imported the postcard logo. All the other postage related stamps are from the Studio 12 Vintage Ephemera set. The letter are Thickers and I have glittered the capital "R" with black glitter for added texture and the sentiment is a rub on created using Safmat (gorge product and a MUST HAVE)!


I finished my card with offcuts of ribbon and lace, buttons and brads and also some cute lickle bees I found in a pot that has been sitting in a cupboard for yonks. I think they are from K&Co ?!?!?

I made 2 pins by adding hearts and beads to them and tucked them behind the flowers.

Rosie loved the card ... or so she said as she is a very polite girl but I equally had fun making it.

Right gotta dash, as finishing the last splurge on school uniform and then its having photos taken for passports .... oh I do dislike having my photo taken and am dreading already the outcome.

Underwater Artist Art Journal Page using Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light

I treated myself a long while ago to the fabulous Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light and sadly have to report that it has stayed hidden in a folder since then. Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...! A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

Learning to photograph my craft projects featuring Text(ures) stamps by Lou Collins

Do you know what I find the hardest about blogging and sharing on social media? Taking clear, good photographs. It really is a daily struggle & some days, the struggle can be monumental when doing photography editing.   Recently I’ve been following a few wonderful artists & a few companies, who above being creative, also share their hints and tips about how to get the best shots to show case the project you may have spent hours making.   My subject for this post is the card below …
