LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration Post Featuring Katy

Good morning everyone! Today I am sharing with you all my inspiration post for LeAnn's World 101 using the adorable Katy .

Something Else on Saturday #40 Featuring Merry & Bright Tomte Gnome from Faery Ink

Good evening and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post! I hope you all had a great Christmas or a Happy Holiday for those of you who celebrate. We had a very chilled, relaxed, but stuffed full of gorgeous food, Christmas. Back to the diet in the New Year! Anyway on to my card for today, which is also my Faery Ink inspiration post as well. I love the Christmas Tomte Gnomes   that Amanda released a little while back, so I just had to use another one to make another Christmas card, even though the day has been and gone! I actually didn't have enough cards this year and was saved a little by finding a drawer with a handful in left over from last year! I say every year that I will make a couple every month, but I never do, but I think I will have to try harder this year! And in all his glory, is my cutie Merry and Bright Gnome... I just love these patterned papers that I bought and am so glad I bought 2 packs, so I'll have some for next year's cards too.

Something Else on Saturday #39 Featuring Marci With Snowman from La-La Land Crafts

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! I'm still making Christmas cards like mad and now have delivered most of them! Just the close family ones to take round now and then I "think" I'm all done! I actually printed and stamped so many Christmas sets this set, that I probably have enough already for next year. I won't say that I won't buy any more Christmas or Winter themed stamps, but I probably shouldn't! Anyway I did a fairly quick and simple card using the adorable Marci with Snowman and my favourite new winter combo of red and aqua! Recipe: Stamps: Marci with Snowman from La-La Land Crafts, Snow Buddies from My Favorite Things Papers: Real Red, Coastal Cabana & Let It Snow DSP all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Real Red from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers, Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir Accessories: Whisper White Ribbon (Retired) from

The Paper Shelter Christmas Break Challenge Anything Goes

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Paper Shelter' s final challenge of 2019! It's incredible how fast this past year has gone by! Did you all enjoy our birthday blog hop for the last challenge as well? Keep an eye out for the winners' announcements coming very soon! Anyway, onto my card for this challenge. It's an Anything Goes challenge, always a very popular one, and I decided to squeeze in another Christmas card for my stash! This adorable image is Gingerbread House   and I just love the cute gingerbread man decorating his own house. We have tried many times to make a gingerbread house from one of those kits you can buy, but it never works. The icing just doesn't stick anything together and it all just collapses! I think I'll just stick with colouring them instead! Recipe: Stamps: Gingerbread House from The Paper Shelter, Yummy Christmas from Stampin' Up Papers: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso & Candy Cane Lane DSP (Retired) all from St

Christmas Tree Delivery Day

Good Morning and welcome to another Christmas card post from me! Today our Christmas tree is being delivered (we have a real one every year as my BF doesn't like fake ones) and instead of going round a tree market to pick one, we have ordered one online. This card is my idea of going to the tree market we used to go round, but the trees there were not as good as they used to be, which is why we now order from another company online. In a way I'm glad as it always took ages for my boyfriend to choose the "right" tree and was always freezing cold! But if we went to a tree market with this cute bear, I might change my mind about spending ages walking round them all LOL Recipe: Stamps: Cocoa Stand from Avery Elle Papers: Pool Party & Whisper White both from Stampin' Up, Card Blank from Anita's, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Early Espresso from Stampin' Up, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans & Blueprint Sketch

Something Else on Saturday #38 Featuring Yeti or Not from Lawn Fawn

Good evening! Completely forgot to write this post for this morning, but I just remembered! I went on a bit of a Christmas/Winter stamps shopping spree last month and have loads of new sets to share with you all. This one is such a cute set and not something I would normally go for to be honest, but having seen heaps of cute cards using it, I just had to have it. I made a slider card to have my yeti snowboarding down and snowy hills and added lots of shimmery pen to the snow, which unfortunately doesn't show up too well in the photo. This card is for Crafty Friends Challenge #125 Winter Colours Digi Design Challenge Winter Holidays Crafty Catz Challenge #487 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 49 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 50 Anything Goes Creative Knockouts Challenge #328 Winter Wonderland Recipe: Stamps: Yeti or Not from Lawn Fawn Papers: Pool Party, Purple Posy, Whisper White & Smoky Slate all from Stampin' Up, Co

Scrapper's Delights VIP December Deals

Good evening everyone and welcome to my DT post for this month's VIP deals from Scrapper's Delights. I decided to take a break from Christmas card making for this card (even though I still have heaps to make, write and post out!). I think I was getting overloaded with all the Christmas stamps I have been using recently! Anyway I used the gorgeous mermaid from the Mermaid 1 Bundle and made a pretty orange and teal coloured card. I couldn't decide if the crown on her head was hair or something else, but I loved the idea of making it a fancy headdress, so went with the bright orange! This card is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge #612 Anything Goes Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #460 Anything Goes Crafty Creations Challenge #404 Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread Challenge #108 Anything Goes Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 50 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Mermaid Bundle 1 from Scrapper's Delights Paper

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! I was hunting for a new Stamping Bella winter/Christmas stamp and when I saw the name of this one, I just had to have it - such a fabulous name for a stamp! And such a cute one too!

LeAnn's World 101 Challenge #21 Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my first official challenge as part of the LeAnn's World 101 Design Team. Our challenge this month is an Anything Goes challenge which is always a popular one. I used the gorgeous Christmas Girl With Tree   for my card to add another Christmas card to my ever increasing pile. I seem to keep adding people to my Christmas card list, so need more and more! I think I may run out of time before I get them all made though!

Happy December!

Good morning! I can't quite believe it is already December! 17 more days at work until we break up for the Christmas holidays. 24 more days to get ready for Christmas! Are you ready?! I know I'm not yet! Anyway on to today's card. I used the fabulous Thanks A Latte stamp set from Lawn Fawn to make a wintery feel, yet warm and yummy card! I think this set is such a cute one, despite the fact that I don't drink hot drinks at all really, just the occasional hot chocolate if I'm really cold! I love this combo of red, aqua and white for Christmas cards and now I have bought some new patterned papers in this combo, I will be making lots more! And I finally found my Big Shot platform so I can emboss cards again with my embossing folders - I have the magnetic plate for my dies so never use the original platform and after a hunt the other weekend, I found it tucked behind my set of drawers which hold random crafting stuff! This card is for The Sketchy Challenge #1
