White Out

Just popped in to show you a layout I made with the 'Snow Bright' kit. I used the star sequin waste as a mask to mist over with pink mist. I must admit it didn't go quite as I had planned, I should of mask off the rest of the cardstock as it become a bit to pink!!! But I'm not one to give up on something when it doesn't go right so I masked off the bit where the sequin waste was and misted over the pink with silver to tone it down a bit!! I used a small bit of patterned paper and folded a strip of the bright blue issue to go under my photo.
I then used some ricrac, 2 flowers, a big sparkly star, one of my handmade flower embellishments, a felt snowflake, a snow themed word, a button, a small bit of thread to tie on the button and a tag, all from the kit to embellishment my page.
And in the end I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!!

Don't forget it's the 1st Feb tomorrow so please came back then as the next kit 'True Love' hits the shop! Really hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

February's Guest Designer

I'm a bit later with announcing this than I thought so without further ado I'm very excited to announce February's guest designer will be the lovely:
 SarahJane Dowsett
Here's what SJ has to say about herself: 

I am SJ, I am 29, a mother of one and an illustrator.

I am the creator of "Little Musings" - digital and Clear stamps.
I live in Bexhill by the sea, with my darling husband and my little boy.

Never to be found without a pencil, camera or scrapping stuff in hand, I spend my days with my son and a brain full of nonsense, which I put down on paper whenever I can.

I love bubble bath, cashew nuts, music, pjammas, seeing my friends and lazing on a Sunday afternoon with my two men. I dislike feeling cold, silence, the dark and spiders. Oh, I also hate wooden spoons, but that's a different story...

I'm really pleased SJ will be joining me designing with February's kit 'True Love' and I can't wait to see what she's creates with it!

January's Kit

 January kit is now in the shop, it's called Snow Bright. It similar to the Festive Frost kit as it's snow themed but I've added pink pink to jazz it up! I know we all have lots of snowy photos to scrap after having all that snow so this is perfect for them! I love the way hot pink looks with the white snowy photos!
 All this for a special price of just £5 so go and grab yours!

You may of noticed I have new buttons that make it much easier for me to add new products. They are the same as the old ones really, just click on the paypal button at the checkout.

I will be back soon with a layout I created with the kit. Hope you like it!

Weston Pier

Sue, my guest designer for the Festive Frost kit sent me another project she made using the kit. She made this clever layout with a little photo book on the front.
 I love the look of the white snowflakes on the black and the cross stitches around the circle look great.
Thank you very much Sue, it's lovely!

Please keep sending in your guest designer applications, I would love to see them!
I will be back soon with the new kit which is a bit late!!
Thanks for looking.
