Big News

Happy Halloween! If haven't realised yet it's November tomorrow, which means it will be kit day! A brand new kit will be added to the shop tomorrow.

** Big news, there will be not just 1 kit in November but 2, yes 2!!! There will be another kit coming out mid November**

 I will give you a little hint about the kit coming out tomorrow, you can probably guest what theme it might be as it's getting close to the festive season! The new kit will is called 'Traditional Cheer' I really hope you will all like it!

There's no guest designer for this kit, just me I'm afraid but there will be a guest designer for the second kit, more on that later in the month!

So make sure you came back tomorrow to check out the new kit!
Have a spooky evening!

I thought I would pop in to show you a layout that the lovely Leigh sent me that she made with the 'Back to School' kit. Leigh did a great job with this layout, most of what she used is just from the kit!
Thanks Leigh for sharing this, it's lovely! 

If anyone has layouts they have made with my kits and would like to share them, please send them to me as I would love to see them and they might just make it up on here too!

Fabulous Fall

I have another one of Tessa's gorgeous layouts to share with you today.
I love the way Tessa has plaited crepe paper and the cluster of embellishments in the corner. Tessa even made her own flower to go with the ones from the kit using the deep red tissue paper from the kit.

Don't forget the 'Golden Leaves' kit is still available as well as the Golden Leaves half kit so go and get one so you can create some gorgeous layouts like Tessa has!

Anybody up for a little RAK? All you need to do is let me know which colours you would like a Christmas embellishment kit in (except red and green)? The winning suggestion will get the RAK, so just let me know!

I Need Your Help!

**Warning talking Christmas!!**

As the festive season is getting nearer I been thinking about my Christmas embellishment kits and thinking what I can put in them and about different colour themes.

So my question for you is if you could have any colour theme (except red and green!) for a Christmas kit what would it be?
Are you doing a Christmas journal this year and are looking for something a bit different to embellish your festive pages?

Please let me know in the comments or email me makeandcreate(at), any suggestions are very welcome and even if you have ideas of what to put in it just let me know!
You never know your suggestions might make it into one of my kits!

I look forward to hearing your ideas, there may even be a little RAK for the winning suggestion!
 Thank you!

Autumn Bliss

Tessa, October's guest designer, sent me this gorgeous layout she made using the Golden Leaves kit.
I love how Tessa has used the kit on this layout, the layering, the ruffled crepe paper, the spirled gold wire, the tiny little flowers she made with some of the gems and she even used some of the twine the kit comes packaged in!!
Tessa has used no patterned paper she just used some mist and the kit, what a great job she did with it!!

Aren't days like today the best kind of day? Such lovely bright sunshine, shinny on the bright colourful leaves with crisp leaves crunching under your feet, I think they are! 
Today inspired me to create another layout with the Golden Leaves kit. Here's the kit...

Here's my layout...

I took this photo of some nice looking fungi or mushrooms in my garden.
I like the way you can create different feels with this kit. Most of what I used on my layout is from the kit I just added some copper shimmer mist, a photo mat and alphas.
I love the textures on this layout, the shinny sequin trim with the hessian tape and material flower.

I hope you've been out and about with your camera capturing those lovely autumnal sites and colours!

October's New Kit

Today is the day another new kit hits the shop! The new kit is called 'Golden Leaves' it is full of earthy tones with a splash of gold for all your autumn photos.
Here's a layout I made with the kit:
 I loved using the brown crepe paper, I used a wet glue on the cardstock and pushed it and wrinkled it up to create texture.
You can buy the kit now, just click on the 'shop tab' just under the title of the blog and you can see the kit in full.
Hope you all like it!
