Frosted Designs - Punches

Hello everyone,

It is time for another Frosted Designs Challenge.

This is such a versatile challenge. Everyone has at least one punch in their stash. So why not dig it out and enter the challenge. The prizes are way cool.

Here is my design.

I love the way this layout came together. I got inspiration from something I saw on Pinterest and was lucky that it all came together really quickly. Thankyou Mojo for hanging around long enough for me to complete it in an afternoon.

I used punches for the border on the striped paper and the pink cardstock. The flags down the bottom are made from punches. And the butterflies are also punches.

Pop on over to Frosted Designs and check out all the fabulous things  the other designers have come up. And while your there make sure you enter your wonderful creation as well.

Thanks for dropping  by.

Frosted Designs - Black, White and One

Hi everyone,

It's time for another Frosted Designs Challenge. Black, White and One. I love this theme. It is so striking, no matter what colour you put with Black and White, it looks amazing.

This time around I kept it simple as I wanted an elegant look. Hope you like it.

I would love to see you have a go at this challenge. It is such a fun one to do. There is a fantastic prize up for grabs from SpiegelMom's Scrap Shop.

Here is another project that I have done previously and meets the criteria of this challenge. Hope you like it.

Hope to be checking out your entry soon.

Bird Cage - it's about time !!!

Hi everyone,

Well I have finally done it !!!  I actually used something that has been sitting around my craft space waiting for "some" day when I would use it. Well today was that "some" day for a chipboard bird cage that I think I have had for at least 2 years...lol .... Now any good crafter knows that you can't rush these things...lol   It had nothing to do with the fact that it looked complicated and took me way out of my comfort zone...lol
I wasn't really inspired by the sample on the instructions so went searching online for some inspiration. I came  across two things. One was a Design Team Call for Case Study, and the other was a gorgeous bird cage decorated by Kelly-Ann. So I decided to use Kelly-Ann's gorgeous work as my inspiration for my entry into the Design Team Call for Case Study. You can see Kelly-Ann's stunning piece here.

Well without further ado, here is what I created. I hope you like it.

Thanks for popping by.
Catch you all later.

Monochromatic loveliness

Hi everyone,

Well today I have some personal news to share. Earlier this week I ended up in hospital. Just an over night stay. Suspected heart problems...mmmm...not happy Jan!  So until I know exactly what is going on, I need to take it  a bit easier.  On the up side, that means that I should now be able to spend more time crafting rather than cleaning etc.....lol....gotta love that bit.

Now onto some more craft news. The latest challenge over at Scrap It With Attitude, is a monochromatic one featuring our mums. I had so much fun doing the first layout that I decided to do another one. Here they are:-

Thanks for popping by. Until next time, have a scrap happy day.
