October's Guest Designer

October's guest designer is Christine Emberson.

Here's a bit about her:
Happy living in my Kentish Victorian terrace in the UK with my sons, too many cats and now a puppy!  I’ve always been interested in craft, from learning to knit and sew as a young child to running my own bead jewellery business.  Once I discovered paper crafting I was instantly hooked, I had discovered a way to ‘gift wrap life’ – capture special moments and beautify them with craft.  I would describe my personal style as somewhat vintage with a slightly out of control addiction to butterflies!   Flutter by my blog.

I think October's kit, Old Type will be right up her street!
Can't wait to see what she creates!

Back tomorrow with the kit!

Celebrate Layout

It's been a bit quiet in here lately sorry about that, I've been busy!!
Anyway I did find time to create a layout using the Celebrate kit.
It was also for the Studio Challenges to make a layout with a list on so I listed all the things my nephew loves on his 3rd birthday!
 I used lots from the kit: 3 different ribbons, the bunting, handmade felt circle embellishment, 2 flags, lined journalling paper, yellow spotty bow, buttons, green sequins, thread and green tissue paper, which I pleated.

Don't forget that all the past kits are still available in the shop, for example if you have photos of your children going back to school, the Back to School kit is still in the shop!

Also please send in anything you create with my kits I would love to see it and you never know it might end up on here! (makeandcreate 

Thanks for stopping by!

Perfect Day Mini Kit

I gave Beki Norman one of my previous guest designers the Perfect Day mini kit to create with. Here's the kit, you can find it in the Mini Kit shop.
This is the lovely wedding layout Beki created with it!
 She used one of the doilies as a mask for misting. Everything is from the kit apart from the canvas tag and letters, she even used the twine that the kit comes in to put through the top of the tag! I love how Beki has used the silver cord, looped.
Thanks for creating with the kit Beki!

Hope that has inspired you!

I love how she has used one of the tags for the title and used some of the airmail twine on it too!

Thanks for sending me this Kirsten!
