Today is the final page in my calendar project, which means my next month, I can collate all my pages together for you and create the finished project, can’t wait to share that with you. So be sure to come back and visit and I would love to know what you think.
It has been a fair while since I sat and coloured any of my stamped images, so I took advantage of an hour or so of peace the other day to create this bookmark for the Sarah Hurley 365 blog.
The colours are much bolder than what I would normally choose, and I very rarely reach for purple, but I was able to get an almost perfect match in colour for the dolls dress to the design paper that is featuring in Sarah’s latest kit club offering.
Head over to Sarah’s blog for more details, and see you here again soon.
Thank you to my recent new followers, I appreciate your support and hope that you continue to enjoy what I make.
It is my turn to share over on the Sarah Hurley 365 blog today, and today this card came quite naturally. I love this time of year, its so bright and fresh. The crisp mornings usually give way to a warm pleasant and bright sunny afternoon. The colours of the garden are still on show, but with a slightly different backdrop to summer, as the leaves and trees start to change.
I really find myself comfortable using autumn colours to create with, however my card today has more red on it than I would usually use. I have also been watching alot of youtube videos of people using watercolours and there is a big trend as the moment with people creating their own art through mixed media and journalling.
I fancied giving it a go, and I reached for this fabulous firework background stamp designed by my fellow DT member Jaine Drake. Having stamped the background I just enhanced and highlighted it using distress ink and watercolour pencils.
I cannot believe we have been married 19 years, and then we were together 4 years previous to that! Where has that time gone!
We have a made a few house moves in that time, gradually heading further and further west, from Milton Keynes, Edgware (North London), Caterham (Surrey), Llandysul West Wales, and now West Cork, Ireland, did you spot the trend – I think that’s it for us now though, next move with be back to the UK (some time in the future).
Hello, welcome back to our inspirational blog today.
My name is Claire Newcombe, and today over on the Sarah Hurley 365 Blog I am sharing with you an altered project, an alternative way to use your rubber and acrylic stamps. I have used the Sarah Hurley Charm Street Flower Girl stamp sets to decorate this once, plain MDF trinket box
I am pleased to say that this cute little box is now filled with goodies and winging its way to its new owner.
It’s my turn to post over on the Sarah Hurley 365 Blog, and today I am sharing this Pom Pom pet that I have made, as a joint effort with my youngest son Stephen.
These Pom Pom pets are part of Sarah’s ‘World of Imagination‘ Range, for more details on other kits available and how I made this head over to www.sarahhurly365.blogspot.co.uk.
When Sarah launched these Pom Pom pets she had a bit of fun and posted selfies of all the characters that were available at launch, and with that in mind she also set a competition on Facebook for her followers to send in their own ‘best selfies’.
I couldn’t resist sending in these ‘selfies’ I had recently taken of my boys in Wales. As you can see it was a glorious day, and we had just visited a butterfly farm and were enjoying the sun outside. As all 6 year olds (at the time, he is 7 now) do, he had a few pennies of pocket money and wanted to buy this rubbery caterpillar thing and while we were picnicing outside the boys were having a bit of fun.
I have used one of Sarah’s Charm Street Cutie stamps to create my own version of a shaker card. For details on how to make the card and the notebook, head over to Sarah’s blog where I have written full details for you.
I have used Beadazzles microbeads. They come in a wide range of colours, and when used like this where they can move freely they also create a brilliant sound….it all adds to the fun of the card doesn’t it.
I have also made a small matching notebook that will make an ideal little gift to give along with the card. I have used my Zutter ‘Bind -it -All Machine’, to punch the holes and add the spiral binding. I used to make little books like this regularly and usually gave them to Mum, they made ideal handbag sized pads for shopping lists…. I think it is about time I start making them again, I have a feeling Mum may have been shopping enough times to use up her stock pile ….LOL!
I’d best be off to start making.
Thank you for popping by, I’d love to see you again soon.
