Gogo Challenge

I did this layout the other day using February's gorgeous scrapagogo kit and the sketch challenge on their forum.  I love the scroll rub-ons put onto card and cut out and the letters from the kit fit perfectly.  Having just reread the challenge it was meant to be on a food theme so I won't enter it for the challenge but I have created another layout so no harm done!

Saturdays crop

At this months crop last Saturday I only did 2 layouts.  This one was done for this months UKS house challenge which has a theme of spring.

The ribbons and chipboard flowers are from this months ribbon kit from Angel Crafts. I decided it was time to use some ribbons rather than just collecting them!  The flowers are covered with a MM love notes paper and the buttons were from Veronica's stash - thanks:)

The photos are from our trip to Paris a couple of years ago.

The second layout is of the incredible trees at Yosemite again!  It was done with bits left over from a couple of old kits.  I think papers are October Afternoon and the background is Bazzill Swiss Dots card.

I have recently bought some stamps and pro marker pens so I have been having some fun making some cards for a change. All fairly basic but suitable for the kids friends. Here are a few of the ones I have done.

Penny Black Challenge

Here is another card I have made. This one was done for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge

It was a sketch challenge and requires the use of a penny black stamp so I used one of my new stamps, this cute lamb.

Papers are all coordinations cut with my die cutter and some ribbon and bling from my stash.

Previous Crop part 2

Some more layouts from last months crop. I decided to use some old photos for a change. These were taken 10 years ago on a family trip to the zoo.
Stash is a mixture of studio calico and gogo kits again.

These photos were taken last year when my parents were visiting. Sorry I can't remember where the card was from and the rub ons and embelishments were from my stash.

Previous Crop

Xmas-Day-2008I have just realised I didn't put the layouts I did at last months crop on here.  So here are a couple - Xmas Day 2008 which is fairly self explanatory!  I think I mostly used Decembers scrapagogo kit.


This layout is a simple one done using a studio calico kit.  I love this photo of the tree at Yosemite with Katherine in front of it to show the scale of it.

Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my sister-in-law.  I used the colours pink, green and brown as that is this weeks challenge on the Pink Elephant Challenge Blog.  The stamp is a Penny Black Stamp, coloured in with promarkers.

Next Digi Course

Yesterday I completed the week 1 layout for the next digi course I am doing.  This one is called Digi: In Deep again by Jessica Sprague.  I learnt an amazing amount doing this layout and love it.
