Catching flies…

Apart from frogs or the Venus Fly Trap plant, when else do you catch flies? The term ‘catching flies’ can used to describe someone fast asleep! And usually with their mouth agog! I was recently caught in act and my husband decided to take a snap! Initially I might have been a bit annoyed… however […]

Popsicles and pandas…

Ok, so you’d be right in thinking that ‘Popsicles and Pandas’, one of the latest collections from Bella Blvd might be whacky – it is! And yet, once you start playing with it, especially in this hot weather when the idea of ice cream sounds heavenly, it’s an extremely easy to use, brilliantly co-ordinated collection […]

Summer’s is nearly here….

And doesn’t it make you feel great? Whether it’s simply the warmer weather or the longer evenings for more scrapping time, Summer definitely gives you the feel good factor!

In fact, some of the […]

Inspired by Wilna…

I’m sure most of us have scrapbooking idols? I certainly have a few including Wilna Furstenberg. Her style, for those of you not familiar with it, is very much inspired by art journaling. Wilna uses patterned paper sparingly, but tends to use plenty of embellishments along with striking cut files, usually in white or black card […]

Oasis…

Of all the latest collections launched at CHA 2017, a firm favourite of mine has to be Oasis by Crate Paper! Whether I’m drawn to it by the stunning green tones of aqua and teal, complemented by the rich raspberry pink and subtle coral colours, or whether its simply a case of “You had me at […]

WRMK typewriter and minc…

My WRMK typewriter and my Minc machine have both finally come out to play! Yes, I’ve been brave, got them out of their box and used them… Scary stuff for me! I think we’ve all been guilty of buying something – not necessarily scrapbooking related and then ‘saving’ it – be it to wear before we […]

Gather…

There are many things we gather in life… our thoughts, the leaves and even when sewing! And one thing I’ve gathered when using the latest Maggie Holmes collection is that I adore it! Capture The 12 x 12″ Gather papers are stunning – I was especially smitten with the birds paper ‘Kindred’ So I decided […]

Cute girl…

Sometimes I simply can’t stop scrapping with a collection and Cute Girl by Crate has done just that! Whether its the classic teal, pink and yellow combo that I’ve fallen for, or because it’s so totally girly and I have three adorable step-daughters, I’m smitten by Cute Girl… Let’s Just Sleep features a cut file […]
