Some More 2Crafty Chipboard Inspiration
"Enjoy / Dream"

 Hi there peeps, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have yet another layout to share with you that was part of
my 2Crafty Chipboard January design team inspiration.

Now as well as using some gorgeous pieces of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard,

I was asked to road test & have a play with these lovely papers from 

WOW I really like this collection which is from their
"Seasons" collection. 
They come in a paper pack with lots of bits & pieces & cut outs included.

This paper has such nice detail already so I didn't have to do much to it
& so I just did a tiny bit of stamping & a few splatters.

I cut these two big black circles with the DREAM & ENJOY words on them
from one of the papers too.

I was really happy with the 2Crafty chipboard I had coloured up black
as I think it makes a great contrast on this paper.

I added a little bit of burlap & some flowers & viola,
all finished.

Until next time....

My January Monthly Card Class
Featuring Gel Press & Finnabair Wax Pastes

Hi there friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have some cards to share with you that I taught in my monthly card class today
& we had fun using Gel Press, lots of paints & did lots of great techniques using
Prima/Finnabair Wax Pastes.

We created all our card backgrounds with paints & a Gel Press aka Geli Plate.
Everyone loved playing with these.

Then we had so much fun altering pretty much everything on our cards
with beautiful metallic Finnabair Wax. 

You cannot really see the
gorgeous shimmer & shine on everything in the photos unfortunately !!
Trust me, they look wonderful in real life with all the richness of these waxes.

Well thats all from me today. Hope you like my cards.

Until next time....

My Design Team Reveal for the January
More Than Words Challenge

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Well here we are in January, so hard to believe another year has come & gone.
The 1st of the month brings a NEW challenge over at the
This months challenge is to use or be inspired by the word 
And to use "sunset colours".

As always there are eight great prizes up for grabs

So for this challenge I thought long & hard & decided to scrap this 
layout featuring my eldest grandaughter as she was the one that initially
 made me a grand mother.

Becoming a grandmother for the first time was a highlight of my life.

I have scrapped this layout in all the gorgeous colours of a sunset.
Pinks, mauves, purples & orange.

Her dress matches these colours perfectly.

A little mixed media on my background, some beautiful 2Crafty Chipboard,
papers & some flowers from Prima Marketing &
some flowers from Green Tara & lots of bits & pieces from my stash.

Aren't these photos of our gorgeous little Mia
just beautiful. She is really beaming.

Be sure to pop across to the More Than Words blog
& see all the inspiration from all the other design team girls.

Well that's all from me today.

Until next time...
