Entrance to Rohan Fanfare

For my second layout using the November Papermaze kit I picked out the musical elements and papers. It shows my daughter, Emily making her entrance to her wedding and records the music the couple chose for this part of the ceremony. 

For full details of how this was made, please see the Papermaze Blog.

Thanks for looking.
Back with two more autumnal pages soon.

Three cards to share today, all made with the bright rainbow colours of Distress Oxide Ink Pads.

The 6" x 6" card blank was inked with a blending tool around the edges, changing the colours as I worked around. Then I used a stencil by Echo Park Party Time - Birthday Candles and blended more colour through it onto a piece of watercolour paper cut a little smaller than the card blank.

I coloured another piece of watercolour paper with a rainbow of colour and then die cut letters and shapes using dies from Crafter's Companion. I attached pieces of Baker's Twine in various colours to look like they were attached to the baloons.


Happy birthday Mum, Jean and Sandra. xxx

Thanks for looking.

Christmas Village

I had a great day yesterday at a Tando Creative workshop, led by Di Oliver and held at Albright Crafts of Diss.

Here is my finished village. We worked with MDF and Chipboard shapes precut and ready for building and painting with a selection of different medium. These included Distress Inks, fluid acrylics, Gesso, Snow Flux, crackle paint, antiquing cream and more.

I added some finishing touches at home. Sparkle was added to the numbers & snowflakes with Stickles. I also made the letters and berries shine with some Glossy Accents.

Thanks for a great workshop and I look forward to attending more.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I have just caught up with last month's (13th October) crop kit layout which I started at the Papermaze Crop - and it's nearly time for the next one (Saturday 10th). The pretty October layout was designed by Janina and suited the photo of my daughter and great niece, who were bridesmaids for my nephew and his new wife in September this year.

Please see the original design on the Papermaze blog.

Thanks for looking.

Aunty & Uncle

I chose this lovely sheet of paper when shopping at Papermaze recently and the colours worked well with the photo of us, as Aunty and Uncle at my nephew's wedding.

The paper is called 'Meadow' from the Indigo Hills 2 collection by Pink Fresh.
I gutted the centre of the wreath with a craft knife, carefully cutting around each of the leaves. Then backed the space with a sheet of 'Misty' from the Indigo Skies collection by Kaisercraft. The leaves were then raised with 3D foam pads to add dimension.
I used the reverse side of 'Meadow' to make a mat for the photo.

The title was cut from the denim side of 'Chambray' paper, also from the Indigo Skies collection. I used Crafter's Companion dies.

 I added paper blossoms and a pearl swirl from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks for looking.

Felt Christmas Tree Decorations

On a recent visit to Diss, about 9 miles from my new home, I found a super craft shop called Albright of Diss. The owner Gloria stocks some lovely fabrics and sewing materials as well as stamps, beads and paper crafts. I booked into a class run by Lesley Hawes to make these delightful felt Christmas tree decorations.

So, on Thursday I met a lovely group of ladies and we worked our way through making these eight felt decorations, under theguidance of Lesley who had prepared a kit for each one.

Thanks to Gloria for the class and company, a great day was had by all.

Thanks for looking.
