In a state of shock ..... a CAS card ...

CAS is something I always aspire to do but the "chuck everything at it" demon inside me, always seems to win but I was asked at "last minute dot com" to rustle up a quick card, so CAS it had to be as I did not have the time to faff over it, spend eons choosing embellies, stroking paper ... well you get the picture. I was even more cheeky and chose an image that needed minimal colouring. Well needs must!

I have used LOTV Umbrella Bunny stamp (retired now) which did need a bit of dusting off as he has been sitting neglected for a long while. Isn't it amazing what you find when you are in a blind panic!?!

I coloured the image with my Prisma pencils and added a subtle cloud background using my pan pastels. I have gone for simple layout to keep the image as the main focal point. The sentiment is from HOTP (magazine freebie).

Right it's Game of Throne's time, so I'm off as need to know what is in store for Stansa and Arya ...

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.

We thought we needed something special to celebrate our 5th Birthday.... so Nikky decided to celebrate by designing a special Digistamp for each of us 5 'Originals' along with a great little paper bundle (which was also designed specifically for ea

A mini album made using the NEW keepsake from Tonic Studios - Life's Journey

On Wednesday, Jodie Johnson launched the new Life's Journey Keepsake Collection of dies from Tonic Studios on Create & Craft, which compliment the existing memory book dies. It was a huge success and sold out within the hour! I was very lucky and managed to play with the dies making samples for the show - well it was meant to be shows. For one of my samples I made a travel journal themed album with a male slant ...
