Halloween Pumpkins and Treat Holders

Hi everyone!

It has been a busy old weekend, and here I am sat on a Sunday evening catching my tail and getting up to date before another brand new sparkly week starts!

Last week I was on Shortbread making mode, I baked a lot all in aid of a fabulous cause, Macmillan Cancer Care.    My friend at work was holding a fundraising coffee morning from 10am till 12pm on Saturday, so I popped along and had tea and cakes with everyone.. what a great morning it was too, i got to catch up with many friends!

After the coffee morning I headed over to Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh where the Ross Papercraft Show was taking place from 10 till 3pm … it was a great afternoon, I got to stock up on cardstock, bought sequins, and also managed to buy a stamp and embossing folder set I had been after for a looong time from Stampers Grove, had no idea they even had it 😉

I also picked up the latest Workshop timetable … going to try and get along to some of Yvonne’s classes when I do not have a demo on for Indigoblu..  Guess what too ??

I will also be doing a few workshops for Stampers Grove in October – December !! how exciting is that!    The first workshop is on 18th October 2014 from 11am to 1pm (see below for a sneek peek)  😀 I can hardly wait, Iam all prepared and ready for it already lol … I got super organised last night and this morning

Halloween 1


Well, that’s my news for this weekend, I hope you can pop along for one of the workshops, they sure are a lot of fun and everyone is very welcoming and friendly, they certainly made me feel very welcome when I booked my very first workshop.

As always, thank you so much for popping round.

I will see you at 10am on Tuesday morning with a new project on the Indigoblu blog

Take Some Notes…

Just  a quick post tonight with a little project to share that I have worked on and off over the last 2 days, there is a lot of different layers in this altered A5 notebook.

There are layers of gesso, paint, texture paste, embossing, enamel embossing, gilding, and dry brushing..

Like how it looks, and has also given me an idea for Christmas!   I think this would look fab with snowflakes all over it, keeping the same colour scheme etc.. I just need to remember to make one nearer the time 😉 .

Hi everyone… and a very happy Sunday to you all…

This book that I made today will be heading along to my Indigoblu demonstrations.

It all started with a layer of Geesso good

step 1


I added some pink text patterned paper that covered the entire surface of theheart. Then I added some Banana Custard acrylic paint to a bottle to make up a lovely creamy yellow spray..  then i tool the diamond stencil and added distress ink randomly over the surface.

step 2

I inked around the edges, then edged in Lancashire Rose megaflakes…added some embelishments, more ink, some more stamping, a wee bit embossing, some cardboard box offcuts… et voila!… although I made add to it later 😉  I’m not sure I have finished yet.

Indigoblu Challenge 16 – Monochromatic

Indigoblu May 2014 Challenge 1

Hi there everyone!

I have some rather exciting news to share with you all this morning!

I am really excited to announce that I am a sparkly brand new Design Team member of the Indigoblu Challenge Blog!!

I am really looking forward to work along with the other girls on the team and to be able to work with the fabulous Indigoblu products, and  produce samples for the challenges each month!

The theme this month is Monochromatic and I chose a clean and simple card design using various hues of green.. incorporating a couple of “on trend”  styles including watercolouring and sequins and links to the Indigoblu products will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Indigoblu May 2014 Challenge

I used the Big Butterfly Stamp, which I absolutely LOVE!,  inked up with versamark,  embossed with ultra fine white embossing powder, then watercoloured with various different hues of green water based inks,  the card panel has scattered ink spots and a sprinkling of sequins to finish it off.

The sentiment is from the More than words A6 stamp set, I stamped out one of the sentiments, then trimmed out the words “Life is too short” and mounted this just under the butterfly.   There are a lot of great sentiments and sayings in this plate, and I have some great ideas for the others 🙂


I look forward to seeing you all over at the Indigoblu challenge blog and look forward to seeing all your submissions to the challenge 🙂

As always, thanks so much for popping round.

Hello Foxy!

Day 2 of the Online Card Class – Watercolor for Card Makers


My card for today concentrates on a watercolour background using the emboss resist technique featured yesterday, it looks like I am going to be working a day behind, I really want to try all the methods and techniques, its just a pity I have to go to work all day, which only leaves me with around an hour in the evenings to play..

hello foxy


If you already follow my blog, you will recognise the wee foxy tag I added to the front of my watercoloured embossed background, it was part of my homework for class that I was practicing over the weekend.    He just fitted perfectly on this card, it was meant to be!

I will add a list of supplies at the bottom of this post, just incase you are interested in any of the products I used.
