Village Fete Layout

I've been busy creating a layout with this months Village Fete kit. I made this layout of our village fete last year, where I had a stall to sell the jewellery I made from. I love the colours of this kit and the patterns of the Crate Paper collections. I did a bit of pink misting and then inked the edges of the large doily and stuck it over the top of the misting.
 I ruffled the wide green ribbon and added the pink flower trim over the top of it and stitched it down in places along the lenght of it.
I only used one piece of patterned paper to mat one of the photos and some Thickers, the rest is all from the kit!

This is the kit that is in the shop now!
Hope you like what I created!

Back soon with new embellishment packs that will be added to the shop shortly!

Royal Wedding Layout

I love it when I'm looking around scrappy blogs and I find a projects made using products from my shop, it really puts a smile on my face!
I came across this lovely layout that Sarah made of the royal wedding using some of my Lace Flowers.
 I love how they look clustered with the other pretty embellishments.
 Thanks to Sarah for letting me show this!
If you have any creations you made using my embellishments that I haven't seen yet please let me know I love to see them. You can leave a comment here or email me with the link to makeandcreate@ hotmail.com.

In other shop news, I'm working on some new products to add to the shop, mini packs and things that I'll be adding soon! Also there will be a guest designer call for July's kit so keep you eyes peeled for that coming soon, I would love you to apply!

Thanks for stopping by!

Boys Toys Cards

Jen, May's guest designer has come up trumps with these two cards she made using the 'Boys Toys' kit. She used the blue crepe paper to cut the bracket shape, ribbons, car embellishment and the green thread to tie on the side of the card all from the kit.
 Jen used the handmade rocket embellishment for this one and added the blue sequins from the kit too.
Aren't they cute? I'm sure any little boy would be pleased to receive one of these!
Thanks for sharing Jen!
