It's a Boy!

Morning all!

OOOO i'm here this morning with a brand new challenge from Charisma!
This week's challenge is - Monochrome, i must admit i'm not one for this sort of challenge unless it tends to be pink! so i challenged myself with this challenge not to use pink! instead i chose blue! which ended up being a baby boy card! hehe!

I've used the most adorable LOTV baby today with his lil doggie which is a cute square ready made topper from LOTV! and my favourite prima flowers i love these with the dot's in as i colour them with stickles and they really pop on the cards i've made before!

Be Hoppy Smash* Book - Eco Green

Morning all!

There's a brand new challenge at Charisma Today!

Michelle has chosen the challenge - RECYCLE!

EEEEEKKKKK i must admit i ran a few miles when i saw this challenge i'm not very good at reusing things on my creations so i actually sat and thought about this challenge and wanted to do something a little different  so out came the smash* books out came the glue and i chose to recycle some material 'frogs' that i'd been sent a while back in a swap bot swap to recover my eco green Smash* Book!

And here's the result!

Apologies for the glare from my day light lamp! it has it's protective cover on so nothing falls off haha!

I've stuck with my theme of Buttons on the spines as in all of my other smash* books! I've used washi tapes from these are gorjuss green tapes have a peek here!!! and don't forget if you've not already snagged the 10% discount code here it is again

Washi Tapes is run by a lovely lady with an addiction to these beautiful tapes! There postage is only £2.75  and they also ship internationally!!!

As a reader of my blog!!! i have a special discount code for you!!! enabling to save you 10% off your next order! it's only valid one time per person! (so you'll have to keep an eye on my blog for future codes! hehe)

that code is... SNC12 

One of the Tapes I've used are... MT Bright Green Collage 

Hope to see you at the challenge!

Key to my Heart - Smash*

Morning all!

This week at my mum's craft shop challenges we don't want to see any cards!!! shock horror i know! what could i do????

I've not been smash* ing for a while now mainly because i'd hate to admit it but i kinda went off it, but i've slowly been taking my time and carrying on with some of my smash* books and even started in the new memo range eeeekkk!!! 

So today's project i've decided to show you a page from my Eco Green smash* book! I was undecided on what to use this book for for quite a while then the lightbulb moment struck and i thought i could use it for sayings and inspirational quotes and stuff so i took it and thought yay i love this idea! smash* a page around a quote!

Today's quote is ' Thought i have the key to your heart, I guess you changed the locks'

I had real fun designing this page and the computer doesn't really give the full feel to it!


*Glimmer Mist - Tattered Angels
*Punch - 3 in 1 classic Martha Stewart Butterfly
*Lace - From Stash
*Quote - Pintrest
*C/stock - Pink Petticoat - Bazzill Basics

What I'm Lovin... *July*

Hey All!

I'm back this evening to share a lil (well large) post with you all about the products in the craft world i'm currently lovin' this month!
I have so many e-mails asking me about what kinda products i like to buy and use i thought this kinda post would give you all an insight into what crafty things i'm currently using and lovin'!

First up! Has to be my new found love of....
Bazzill Kraft 12" x 12" cardstock - Pack of 5 - Click Image to Close

Kraft Cardstock! Yep i'm loving working with this at the moment it's so nice to put other colours with instead of the usual black or matting layers it's so nice to use especially with the next product below! I actually get my kraft in A4 size from a local craft shop but you can get it here in 12x12.

VersaMagic Dew Drop - Jumbo Java from Tsukineko

VersaMagic dew drops are currently an in thing with my i love the effect the chalks give papers and card stock and it's so nice around the edges of images I reccomend Jumbo Java which is a brown for use with Kraft Card.

American Crafts - Amy Tangerine - Clear Stamps - Love Struck
Amy Tangerine LoveStruck Stamp Set! I have been using this stamp set so much in my project life and in my smash* booking! There so darn cute i love the feather!!! I can tell you you'll see more Amy T on my blog in the future i'm totally obsessed with her products right now and super excited to see her newest CHA Release i so can't wait for it to come out in the UK!  

MME - Six By Six Pads - Dwell

For those who regually follow my blog and know me you'll know i'm obsessed with 6x6 paper! At this very moment in time i am lovin' the six by six My Minds Eye collections i especially love this one called ''Dwell'', those little cute tele's remind me of willy wonka! lol strange i know but it's kinda retro but soft pale colours! 

Simple Stories - Summer Fresh - 6x6 Paper Pad

I was super excited about the last CHA release from simple stories there papers are lush! totally scrapability and awesome! that i nearly fell over trying to purchase the 6x6 version, there so cool, and they have mini journal cards and bingo cards in the stack too totally rocking! This is my current favourite pad ''summer fresh'' i'm so hoping they bring out the girly pink one in 6x6 too! 

Enough of the paper! lol i could talk for years literally there's so many favs of mine when it comes to paper!

Next up...

*NEW* MY MeMo Notebook - Big Pink Book

My Memo Notebooks! Well when i first saw these i thought 'smash*' written all over it and if you see there vid on youtube you'll agree it's such a rip off of the k&co vid it's untrue! but.... i swallowed my issues with that and went ahead and ordered both the blue and pink (if you wish to see inside follow my youtube link at the top of my blog).
I love the idea of these books and there just basically a different kind of smash* book just a different companys version! still not sure what i'm going to do with mine as yet but hey!!!

*NEW* MY MeMo Sticky Notes - Musician

My Memo also do a fav range of sticky notes and journal spots along with funky washi tapes too i had the music ones me being me of course i love my music! I must admit i was a tad disapointed in these when they first came i couldn't get over how small they were! but.... i stuck with it and now i'm finding music notes all over my house (never mind the books!)

And finally Stamps!!! how could i not write about those!!!

Well two companys that don't need a write up there images are as cute as ever....

Tiddly Inks

Saturated Canary

The world of rubber....
