Calendar Girls

Today I'm sharing some more of my Lily of the Valley - Thoroughly Modern Misses cards. These were made with Digital cards, but rubber stamps and simply prints are also available. The Monthly Traits are also from Lily of the Valley. Here are my January and February cards.

This first one was made for my great niece - Jessica for her birthday. The background was made with a stencil, and some Glitter Kisses and Distress Inks in three shades of blue. The greeting is a die from Creative Companions. All the cards were coloured with my Promarkers.

For Kerry's card I used some patterned papers from Crafter's Companion. and some embellishments from my stash.

Liz's card uses more of the items used above, with ribbons from my stash. 

Wendy's easel card was again made using papers and pens etc. as above. All these cards are 6" x 6" in size.

Hope you all had a good birthday.

One of my favourite topics for scrapbooking is my collection of heritage photographs. This is my great aunt Marjorie. The layout was created for the Scrap Paper Scissors Blog (Papermaze Design Team). This month I am working with the elegantly classical papers from Kaisercraft's Romantique collection. Please visit the blog for details of products and how I made the layout.

Marjorie Phyllis Holder - My Great Aunt Marjorie.
Born in 10th June 1803 in Bromley, the eleventh of fourteen children to
Frederick Henry and Emma Jane Florence (Williams) Holder.
The 1911 Census shows Marjorie as a 7 year old school girl living at
120 Southlands Road Bromley with her parents and ten of her siblings.
Marjorie married Gordon Murdoch Stebbing (1901 – 1972) in 1928 in Bromley
They had no children.  Marjorie died in Eastbourne in 1989

I loved using the Kaisercraft Romantique 'Butterflies Printed Acetate' sheet and creating a large hydrangea bloom.

I will be back later in the month with another project using these papers.
Thanks for looking.

Cricut Card for the Triplets

We have many birthdays in January for our family, so I'm busy catchin up with the blogging of the cards I made.

Oliver, Hannah and Lucy were nine this year, and I decided to get the Cricut going for these cards.

I used a selection of papers and cardstock from my stash.  
I used the Hello Kitty Greetings and the Robotz cartridges with the Cricut.

I inked the edges with distress inks and added a little sparkle with Crystal Stickles.

Happy birthday Hannah, Lucy and Oliver.

Here is the second layout using the delightful Wandering Ivy papers from Kaisercraft, for the Papermaze Design Team Blog. I have chosen another photo from Emily's autumn wedding. This time Jack is carrying her through the orchard at the Night Yard.

Please go over to the Scrap, Paper Scissors blog for details of the materials I used and the links to the shop.

I used many of the same dies cardstock and elements used for the first layout 'Today We Were Married'. This time I did some heat embossing with some UTEE.

I will be using these papers and elements again to make more layouts for Emily and Jack's wedding album.

Thanks for looking.

Today We Were Married

Here is my first layout for 2018 and the Papermaze blog. I have used the Wandering Ivy collection from Kaisercraft.

When I received my design team package for January and found these beautiful, rustic papers and a package of embellishments I just knew they would be ideal for presenting some of the photos from my daughter's wedding.

Please see the Scrap, Paper Scissors blog for details.

Summer Harmony Blanket

OK so it's winter, but I have now completed my Summer Harmony Blanket. I made the last stitches to the border while away on holiday in the Lake District, back in October. This is a clever design by Lucy of Attic 24. Although this was released in parts back in All parts of this design are available on her blog. 

A different approach this time, working all of the first rounds, then all of the second and so on. Ending up with 100 complete squares. 

The squares are not joined randomly, Lucy has spent a lot of time working out a colourwash effect, running diagonally.

The border was created with all the colours from the squares and two different rounds of stitches.

 Thanks for looking.
