Touched by Nature

Hi everyone,


How has your week been going?


Mine has been quite good but the weeks seem to go so fast lately and we are nearly in September – Christmas will be here before we know it!


My card below is a combination of a couple of challenges:



Inkspiration Sketch Challenge # 83





Colour Create Challenge # 77


which is inspirational colours of Blue, Green, White, Red & Brown from the picture below as well the optional extra – Texture.


I have used Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz and Baja Breeze.









I have added a touch of texture with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder on the Pear Pizzazz.






The sketch challenge was great as I love layers.  - Well what do you think?

Cupcake Time

Hi everyone,


Back again with a mixture of the old and the new.


The current Idea Book & Catalogue will be replaced on 1 September with our new catalogue and you can get some of the items we are saying good bye to by clicking here to review the retired list.


So for this challenge I have mixed the old with the new – some DSP that is only available until 31 August with the new the Create a Cupcake stamp set that teams with the Cupcake Builder Punch.


The sketch layout is from Mary Jo’s website and her Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge # 187.




And this is my card:






Stamp set: Create a Cupcake

Card: Real Red, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink: Pacific Point

Accessories:  Celebrations DSP, Cupcake Builder Punch, Mini Glue Dots,Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Pack, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive


I love the bright colours in the DSP and the cute little cup cake.


Leave a comment let me know what you think.


Till next time…. Meg x

Back and Pretty in Pink

Hi everyone,


My goodness it has been AGES!!!!!!!!!!! since my last post and to be honest I haven’t stopped.


Between completing wedding invitations, boxes, name place cards, decorating wishing well/candles and thank you cards  PLUS

Changing workplaces and working for my old workplace for a few weeks after I finished PLUS

School Holidays PLUS

Completing some Workshops PLUS

as you can all appreciate life in general has been crazy so something had to give and it has been my posts and my crafty creations.


But during the past week I found the Paper Players Challenge Colour Challenge # 59 – All Pretty In Pink :


Rose Red, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink




I have also used the sketch layout from Ala Card Monkey site – I really like the challenge of this layout. 



I am happy with the end result and I have used some of the new product from the new Idea Book & Catalogue.  Like the Lace Ribbon Border Punch and the Button Buddies and Creative Elements stamp sets.
