Pretty In Pink My first Guest DT Spot for Tattered Inspirations.

I have held back a little on Announcing the news of my Guest DT spot for Tattered Inspirations etsy store because I wanted you to be as excited as I am.

The store is full of wonderful Kits, and bits and pieces of vintage inspired items perfect for all your crafting needs. Especially when you want not only value for money but also something just a little bit different.

Tattered Inspirations Blog and Card Kit

I was lucky enough to receive two kits the Pretty in Pink Card Making Kit, and Pretty in Pink Hat Pins. Here is what was in my Kit including the wonderful wrapping that makes every parcel from Tattered Inspirations feel like the best kind of Present.

The Kit:Photobucket

The only things I added to the Kit to make my cards were: Victorian Velvet Distress Ink Pad, Ink Blending tool, Pink Cardstock, Papers from the Kaiser Bonjour Range, Home Made Mist, and rub on’s.

The best thing is the kits come with 3 cards and all you need to make 3 complete cards with enough spare to make one or two more. When you look at buying cards from a newsagent the kinds of cards you can create from the kits not only work out to be very economical but also are works of art.

The kits are so easy to work with that even if your not a natural Card Maker you will find it fun to just play and before you know it you will have 3 finished cards.

The first card I did started with the Paper Doily a great tip is to Mist your Doily  on top of your envelope it gives your envelope a really pretty finish and also means you waste less mist that way.

Here is the Card and Envelope and the card on it’s own it is very much about the layers.

The next card is a sweet little girly card that I have decided to give my Niece for Her birthday this month (I hope she will forgive its lack of hot pink and like it anyway)

and the last card is very much just about playing with the kit pieces and some pattern paper.

I do so hope you will go check out the etsy store as it really is a wonderful treasure trove.

And that’s all there is there isn’t anymore

Layouts from ‘the Vault’ Part 2

You know it is great fun looking back through my photobucket and seeing some of the stuff I have created. Think I will have to do this at a later date for my bears. So here are some more layouts to share with you all.

This first layout is my eldest nice, the photos were ones I took just mucking around. Not everyones taste but I have always loved this as its so different and simple and for me at least it has impact.

For me this was not only a very special moment but a very structured layout with quite a lot on the page. I tend to favour very clean simple looking layouts, well I call them deceptively simple because often they have a lot of hidden work in them it is just not always obvious until you break the page down. This page was done about 4 years ago

This is a layout I created as a challenge when I was guest DT for Artistic Document.  What I love about this layout is the fact that I threw caution to the wind and tore up a photograph, It remains one of my favs not just because it is a great shot of me. But because it is also so different.

Follow Your Bliss, created as My August Challenge for Guest DT spot at Artist Document

This next layout was also for my Guest DT spot at Artistic Document the theme of the Cyber Crop at the time Was Reuse Repurpose and recycle

This layout has a wax cheese wrapper melted and stamped into then pear ex’d over. And recyced butchers paper the kind that always comes wrapped around anything you buy from the Deli

cc challenge lo

This layout is one where I used Basic Grey Two scoops stamps and made my own background I really love this Page as it is so busy and yet still has a simpleness about it.
