Elle’s Studio – Tag you’re it!

It’s September and ‘tag, I’m it!’ This month I chose to create with the Elle’s Studio embellishments and in particular the lovely cork tags. You get four cork tags in the pack, they say Summer, Love, Today and the other is a star. The Summer tag gave me the idea to make a tag album, […]

Vicki Boutin Collection

I was keen to get my hands on the Vicki Boutin mixed media products from American Crafts, especially the art pastels. In addition to these, I ordered the blending sponge, the 12×12 paper pad, the ephemera cardstock die-cuts and the cardstock labels. Naturally I ordered more than this, hence my photo below of my lovely box […]

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 […]

I’m smitten…

This month I’ve have the total pleasure of designing with the new range ‘Love Always’ by Cocoa Vanilla Studio and honestly, I’m smitten! I’ve seen some of my fellow DT use their ranges and loved what’s been created, but have never used one of their ranges myself – I for one will not be looking […]
