Books, books, books........

Righto, a little card for a friend.....
I've used Darkroom Door - Bookworm set - the sentiment was too big
so i used my trusty old school typewriter which
is about 35 years old :) 
scattered straw, wild honey, spiced marmalade, fired brick distress inks
and BAM... we have a card!!

Have a great day

2014 Week 44 Project Life......

Hi All,
I promised I'd show some more PL and 
well I'm still working on playing catch up with 2014, but I know I'm almost there!!
Here is one of two pages of Week #44
as you can see why, the focus is so obviously Lucy our new grandbaby :)
I've used the Dreamy PL set of cards, some Basic Grey alpha stickers, 
some wood veneers, a cork heart sticker and another phrase sticker.
The kraft 4x6 cards were die cut using PL dies as I only wanted to back the photos
 and not use up my stash of PL cards
 I hope you like it and I look forward
to sharing some more pages in the next couple of weeks :)

I've entered this page in the Life Zesters monthly challenge

Valentine's Day card

Hi All,
here is the lastest in my creations...
My Valentines day card for my DH! I snuck it into his luggage 
before he left to fly back to work.. and then i couldnt wait for
his to open his envelope lol :)
I used the MFT lightbulb die and cut it twice using gold glitter card
and some black card.. then used Lawn Fawns Milo Alphabet
and stamped the velum with versamark and gold embossed.
Pretty nice eh??
I was really happy with the way it all turned out!

Hoping your having a crafty day

A different style ~ Project Life

Hi All,
Just slowly getting back in the saddle for posting...
I just thought I would share with you a couple of  'week' cards
I've created for my Project Life pages.
For the 'week 4' card:-
It was die cut using Lawn Fawn - Lawn cuts - Stitched Journalling die set
the Laugh and Play arrows are Memory Box's Happy Arrows stencil using 
 distress ink Festive Berries, 
the Week No was stenciled using MFT Die Accent Calendar, 
with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn. 
The number and the heart are also out of this die set, coloured with Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry and .
then using Ranger Glossy Accents on top to make them stand out a little.
For the 'week 5' card:-
 I used Memory Box's raindrops stencil with Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass. 
The banner and the 2015 text is from the Lawn Fawn - Stitched Journalling die set,
 the text is using Milo's ABC's stamp set from Lawn Fawn,
 the clouds are from Lawn Fawn 'Hello Sunshine' die set 
and then coloured with my B0000 copic markers.
