I Hope Your Birthday is ON POINT ...

Couldn't resist these little fellas from My favourite Things, too cute.  Clean & Simple today with a little bit of hand stitching (haven't done that for a while).  I have used Squeezed Lemonade oxide for the back and a splatter of water to represent the sunshine on these little ones.  Heat embossed in gold, sentiment also in the set.  Coloured with Promarkers and highlighted in white.

Bye for now, Jane x

Party Animal ...


Today I want to share the gorgeous Matchbox Builder dies from Mama Elephant. So I have a couple of projects on my crafting table using this lovely die set but this is the first to be completed.
I have used the 'Wild Roar' stamp set, stamped on a concertina pull out card using the ribbon loop at the top.  Both sentiments heat embossed in gold also Mama Elephant 'Stackable Friends'.  The speech bubble is from the 'Slim Card Basics' die collection.  Coloured with Promarkers in my pointillism style,  white highlights and some glossy accents for the little noses ha ha.

Thank you for popping by my little old blog today, happy crafting, Jane x

Koi ...

 Absolutely no credit taken here today except from the genes,  as this is a little pressie from my talented Daughter.  Koi painted onto a wood slice and now very very proudly displayed in my studio.  I just love it. Show and tell, well boast and brag over, thank you for popping by my blog today.

Happy Birthday ...

Time for a change, a tall slim card to share today using the adorable Monkey Agenda stamps from Mama Elephant.  Regular followers of my little old blog will know I adore the agenda stamps, these are no exception.  I have stamped them in grey to create a background, hand stitched, mat and layered kraft and yellow card.  I have used the Sizzix dimensional domes to create a shaker, the stamps are just the perfect size for this.  Coloured with Promarkers and some green sprinkles to finish.

Simple little mobile phone cover this time around, using the gorgeous Tilda playing in the water and Magnolia postcard stamps.  Coloured with Promarkers and a little TH Antique Linen distress ink to finish.  The sentiment is from MFT titled 'Picture Perfect' and well it is just perfect, so I carry little Tilda with me where ever I go.  The phone template was downloaded and cut on my Silhouette.

Spin Me Around ...

You may have noticed I do love an interactive card including this Turner Suprise die from the fabulous Mama Elephant.   And like many interactive cards they really aren't as difficult as they may first appear.  Kids, big or small, ha ha love receiving kinetic cards.  The sentiments are from Mama Elephant titled Circle of Friends, heat embossed in gold on black card.  The star die cut is also in the Turner Surprise set.

I have used the Turner Surprise with the Panda Agenda stamps also from Mama Elephant. I have created a background using TH Distress Oxide (twisted citron) and created a shaker card and popped in lots of sparkles, gold glitter, green hexagons & ice white circles all from Nuvo Confetti.

Happy crafting love Jane x

Summer ...

 Today I am sharing my 'Summer' theme inspiration as Guest Designer for

 A little something for me and my studio today.  The frame is a cutting file over on the Silhouette Design Store by Nilmara Quintela.  So I have covered it in Nitwit Collections papers, Gesso & TH Antique Linen distress ink for a shabby look.   The words on the back panel are CG and also added a back flap so I can add some larger memories; like a cork or two ha ha.

So Tilda of course, Tilda on the Beach, love this little lady, coloured with Promarkers.  Plenty of flowers, sand in a bottle, view finder, Doohickeys from numerous box kits, cheesecloth & clear dew drops. I have also used Tilda playing with water on the side of the memory box, I just couldn't resist using both!  Plenty of pictures from all angles.

Please do come & play along, looking forward to all your entries.

Stay safe, happy crafting, love Jane x
