More than words plus tags for fun.

Yesterday I made 4 blue tags.
I used up a set of alphas I had plus some other smaller bits and pieces.

The left hand tag has a stamped Eiffel tower then drips of mist and light inking through a mask.
I added a wood veneer angel and 3 chipboard hearts. The finishing touch was 3 pink enamel dots.

Mojo Monday

It is time to get back into card making,so I started with this one for Mojo Monday.



Here's the original sketch
I had fun making this one using paper offcuts, plus ribbon and the misted canvas heart from this month's Counterfeit kit.
Baby cards are always required.

Mystical ingredients challenge

Using the list of Ingredients below create a wonderful summer layout to coincide with the January Summer theme. These are Minimum requirements.

1 x Piece of Lace

2 x Shapes

3 x Flowers

4 x Patterned Papers

5 x Buttons or Dots


I started with 3 pink and fawn coloured flowers, then matched my papers to that.
Next I found my photos..
The lace is mauve in colour, but matches my papers, the shapes are the thin strips I used for journaling. I've used 5 pink buttons.

Scrap challenge YOUrself

At Mystical scrapbooks they had a mood board
This led me to some photos of me swimming. I'm trying to do more of that this year.

With the challenge at Challenge YOUrself  in my mind, 



Here's the layout with my word SWIM.
That's me in the bottom photo. We were on a holiday at Hamilton Island.

Paper players



At the paper players is this colour challenge.
I started by using a grey (neutral) background which had a border of red scrollwork with stars.
Next I added an olive green patterned paper and my sentiment, which is  raspberry swirled.
(mmm now I want an ice cream!)

I then added a raspberry toned cartouche with a pale olive green brad.

The background grey, the olive green and the brad are from my counterfeit kit.

Scrap with Stacy.

Here's the challenge at Scrap with Stacy.

I have chosen to go down the first column so cardstock, circle and punch.

I started with a very Christmassy foiled paper from RubyRock it named "Vintedge Glam".

Next, I added some green cardstock recycled from the folder my Christmas stamps came in.

I matted my 3 photos on papers from the 6x6 pad in my kit. I used a circle doiley and 3 small Christmas sayings from the same 6x6 pad. I added 3 copper coloured wood veneers in Christmassy shapes. There are also 2 gold arrows.
My alphas are as plain as I could get on this very busy layout.

Hope you like it.


While we are on a food theme, I've made a card using all Counterfeit kit items, for Li'l Red Wagon
The theme there is baked goods such as cakes, biscuits etc.
I had a cupcake on my gold sticker page, so layered it on one of the canvas shapes then put it on this card.It can work for male or female.
