Baby at That Craft Place

Hi All

Well I should be back from holiday now but this is a scheduled post just in case I am late back or forget to do it!  I will be back "live" very soon!!

Today is a new challenge over at That Craft Place challenge blog and the theme is

"Baby"

I have used another gorgeous Saturated Canary image called "Butterfly Baby".  Here is my card:




 I really enjoyed making this card!  I kept it quite simple (as always!) The paper is Foreever Friends New Arrival.  I then just added a lovely square doily, I used my Memory Box Precious Hearts again and added some mulberry rose flowers, pearls and a touch of glamour dust!

As always please pop on over to the challenge blog to see all the other DT projects.  Also please pop on over to the facebook and shop page for more inspiration and gorgeous products.

Right, that's all from me.  Have a lovely day and I will see you all soon.

Love and Hugs

New Challenge at The Hobby House


PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY "THAT CRAFT PLACE" POST

Hi again!

Before I get onto my project for the Hobby House I just want to tell you that I won't be around for most of September. I am moving house tomorrow!  My craft room is all packed up and ready to go!  Shortly after we move in we will be going away on holiday for two weeks, I am sure we will need it by then!  So basically I won't be around until about the end of September.  (I also won't have broadband access for a while at the new place :-().  I will however be scheduling posts during September so I won't be far away.  I just won't be able to come and visit you and stay in touch on Facebook.  So don't get up to anything while I am away!  

Back to my last post for today which is a project for our brand new challenge over at the Hobby House.  We had such a huge response to our Christmas challenge, thank you so much!  This month our challenge is to use any of the artists featured in the Hobby House store.  These include:

Elisabeth Bell
Mo Manning
Kenny K
Sylvia Zet

You can use any a stamped image or any of the pre-coloured toppers that are available in the store.  

I have gone for an image from Elisabeth Bell, as you know I love these sweet images.  I have used it with a Shadow Box from La La Land which I have had for ages but not got around to doing anything with it!  Here is my project:




The image is a pre-coloured topper called Summertime from Elisabeth Bell.  Other Hobby House products include:


I have also used a variety of dies including La La Land Open Leaf Flourish, La La Land Heart Tree, Die-namics Cut Grass and PTI Cloud Set.  

Phew, I think that is it!

Well, that's it from me for a while then!  Wish me luck with the move!  I will hopefully be back in action at the end of September with my craft room set up! 

Take care and speak soon
Love and Hugs

Music Inspired at That Craft Place

Good Morning All!

I have two posts for you today, aren't you lucky!  I will be back shortly with my project for the Hobby House but before then I am here with my first ever card for That Craft Place challenge blog!  Thank you Lisa and Erin for inviting me to part of your wonderful team! 

Our theme this week is 

"Music Inspired"

I knew I wanted to use MOD Marci from La La Land for this challenge!  Here is my card:





I love this image!  The paper is MME - On the Bright Side and I have used dies from La La Land including Filigree Corner, Heart Doily Border and Heart Treble Clef. I have used also Lil'Inker Stitched Square.  I found the little music charm in my stash, I think it came from Tracy at Dies to Die For in one of her Freebie Fridays!  I then just added some pearls.  

I enjoyed making her so I hope you like it!  

Please pop on over to the challenge blog for more inspiration and also check out the following links for fabulous products, fun and advice!

That's it for now, see you again shortly!
