Christmas Baubles

Have you started on your Christmas idea's yet?


Yes, I have.......I figured these cute guys would be great for Christmas in July parties.


Awesomely cute!

I used Jaded Blossom's Candy Caddie Die to create my holder, and my Cameo to cut out the faces in vinyl and layer onto the 50mm baubles.

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

Holy Smokes! card

How cool is that sentiment!!!

Used my copics again to colour in the moped.


The sentiment is one from Jaded Blossom's Best Friends stamp set and the moped is from Stampin Up's retired Today & Everyday stamp set.

Lotus Blossom Card Set

Here's a set of 3 cards I made for a birthday gift.

They are all 4" x 4", and I made envelopes to with them - just plain white so didn't think you would need a photo of those!


Aren't they just gorgeous! I have no sentiment on them as I thought they would be good to have on hand to just add what you need at the time.

CUCC42 Brothers In Arms WW1

Time for my next Cooking Up Creations Challenge at Soul Scrappers.

This month we will let our picture tell the story........
My Recipe consists of your layout having the following ingredients:
  • NO visible journaling
  • Kraft/tan background
  • One photo only
  • at least One tag
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Leaves - stamping or embellishment
Here's my layout example:


This photo was taken in 1916 and is my FIL's 2 uncles Maverick & Morgan (brothers).
Sadly Morgan was killed in action in France a few short months after this photo was taken.

I scanned the original photo and had it printed off, and then I sanded around the edge.
I love that the speckles through the photo are because the photo is so old and aged by time.

I would love to see what creations you can cook up for this challenge!

Not a member of Souls Scrappers, no problem, click on the link above or message me your email and I'll get an invite sent.

Remember that for every Challenge at Soul Scrappers, if there are 8 or more entries, everyone goes into the draw for a RAK Prize. How  cool is that!

TTT5 Let Love Grow

Here's my entry into the latest Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.



I've used the diagonal line - Flower, Blue, Arrows


Loved this challenge and I've been wondering how to do my son's introduction page for a long time - LOL, only took 17 years!
I really like it and think the flower rosettes are totally ok on a boy's page.

Friends Add Color

I've been playing with my copic pens of late, so thought I'd have a go with my Stampin Up Blendabities as well.

Here's two cards using the same stamping image....




Love playing with my different embossing folders too!

I decided to make up some sets of cards that could be given as Birthday Gifts.
No-one can ever have too many birthday cards ready!

I made the exact set of 3 cards but in 2 different colours.

Here's the Baked Brown Sugar set

and this is the Calypso Coral set

Nice plain and simple cards - love them.

#TGIFC02 Make a Wish

Time for the next challenge at TGIF Challenges.

This week is a sketch .....



Here's my entry ...


I took the liberty to using die cut balloons as my middle cut.
The main card mat and banner are two of the "Playground" Project Life cards which gave me the colours to work with.

Happy Mothers Day 2015

Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday!

I did have to work afternoon shift, so that meant I got to have a lovely morning tea with my MIL, and then lunch on the way home with hubby and kids.

Here's the gift I made for both my MIL and my own Mum!



I think they came up great - the girl silhouette is gold vinyl.
They are nice, but I must say they are nicer in real life.
Oh and each one has some licorice inside as they both have a fondness for it.

And of course I made a card as well!


I do love Jaded Blossom's Daisies stamp set.

SC90 Bocce Cousin Style

Here's my entry into the latest Sketch Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

I challenged myself to do this one as I tend to get a bit flustered and overwhelmed when I have too much on a layout! LOL, I don't think my brain likes to think to hard.

This is the sketch we are using (pagemaps sketch 9)


Here's my entry


How cute are those wee birds!


If you're interested, the birds and music notes I stamped are from the Jaded Blossom's Birdie Bites stamp set.

#TGIFC01 God Bless You

Do you like challenges?

Here's a new Challenge Site I thought I'd try to get some cards made and to use up my stash.
Yes, it is Stampin Up, but no you do not have to have everything SU - use similar colors, etc.
The site is called TGIF Challenges.

Anyway, here's the very first challenge



and here's my entry


I used the retired SU Happy Watercolor stamp set for this one.
The sentiment and banner die framelit are from Jaded Blossom.

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

ABC5 It is What it is....

Here's a canvas I made inspired by the latest ABC Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

We are up to "E" so our choice of word starts with E and the embellishment is  Enamel Dots.

I decided to make a canvas this time round - however I have not used a "E" word so am not eligible to enter the challenge, which does not bother me.


I've been waiting for the right inspiration to cut this file and this was it! 

I LOVE IT!!!!!

It is rather large (40cm x 50cm) and took me around 3-4 hours to weed, but sooo worth it. 

It now sits on the wall above my craft desk and I often glance at it and reflect the words in the saying.

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

FS2S5 The Blokes

Here's the layout I made for this month's From Screen 2 Scrap Challenge (FS2S5) at Soul Scrappers.
May's inspiration is coming from the Movie Poster The Inbetweeners 2




Added criteria...
1pt = orange and blue background
2pts = Blue title
3pts = number/s on your page (can be in title or journaling)
4pts = 4 people in the photo

Here's my entry

I missed the blue / orange background as mine is more greenish, but I love how it has come out.

This is of my 3 brothers and dad on his 70th Birthday back in 2009.
