Dies & Gold & Ampersands & Phrases

Hi! It’s time for some project life spreads again! This time I focused on four things… one tool, one color, one product type and one shape; dies, gold, stickers with phrases and ampersands!

Sew lovely to stitch onto layouts…

It’s sew lovely to stitch onto layouts… One of my all time passions is to sew, from the lovely sound the sewing machine makes to wearing the finished garment, it has been a hobby that I’ve stuck with since childhood… And the same can be said for scrapbooking… whilst discovered later in life, the satisfaction of seeing […]
