Scene It Sunday #79 Featuring Koala Hugs from Mama Elephant

Good morning! Welcome to this week's scene It Sunday post! I bought this stamp set from Mama Elephant ages ago, but never got round to using it as I really didn't know how I was going to put it all together. Sometimes I get a complete mind block and have no idea what to do, so I leave the images I have coloured and come back to them later when the mojo has returned! 

I did a bit of a Google search for ideas and the Mama Elephant design team had used a leafy frame die which I really liked, but it's one I don't have, so I made my own using a leaf border die that I do have instead! I really like how it came out, but my Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink really needs reinking so I had to add lots of ink to get it to blend nicely! It wasn't quite the pale blue I wanted though!

Something Else on Saturday #140 Featuring Steampunk Queen of Hearts from Ms. Fits

Good morning and happy Saturday! I can't believe January is virtually over and done with! And what a mad month it has been at work! Covid cases all over the place! Luckily I have managed to avoid it so far - no idea how considering 1/3 of my class had it at one point! Fingers crossed it stays that way! 

Anyway onto this week's Something Else on Saturday card. I am so excited that Betty Roberts is creating digi stamps again, but this time her daughter Rio is running the store and the digis are limited to a month's run at a time, so you have to get them while you can before they disappear! This gorgeous gal is Steampunk Queen of Hearts and I made her into an alternative Valentine's card for my boyfriend!

All Things Magical and Mythical #20 Featuring Fairy Tales from Holly Durr

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. This week I am sharing the front cover of this year's reading journal that I have made. It is basically the same as last year's with a few changes for the pages inside. I make my own one as I cannot find exactly what I want in a published version. At least this way I know I will use it. I used last year's all the time and loved being able to see all the books I had read and my quick reviews along with my ARCs (advanced reader copies) for the author's teams that I am part of!

Anyway... this project uses Fairy Tales from Holly Durr which I bought from Sweet Pea Stamps many many years ago before they closed down. Shamefully, I have never used this image before, but it worked perfectly for this year's reading journal's cover!


And a close up of her hair so you can see the purple highlights better...

Something Else on Saturday #137 Featuring Rebecca Raspberry from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Good morning and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post. I don't generally set myself crafting goals at the beginning of each new year, but I am trying this year to use more of what I already have rather than buying more stamps, more dies and more patterned papers, so I have dug out one of my very first Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sets for today's card. 

I don't often use the same stamps more than once. No idea why really as they do cost a fair amount of money so I should do to get the most out of them. I suppose as I have so many now after so many years of card making that I keep trying to use new ones each time. But anyway, I really liked going back and using this older set. 

And here is she...so different to the first card I made with her, which you can see here.

All Things Magical and Mythical #19 Featuring Giggle Fairy from Some Odd Girl

Good morning and welcome to my first All Things Magical and Mystical post of 2022! It's back to work for me today for a training day before the children come back to school tomorrow! I hope it's not too intense today! Not sure my holiday brain can take it all just yet! LOL

I had a bit of a sort out of my printed and stamped images over the Christmas holidays and found loads of images that I haven't used, so I am now trying to make my way through some of these older ones as well as all the stamp sets I have yet to use!

This cutie is Giggle Fairy from Some Odd Girl, which is no longer available unfortunately! I went for a red and green combo to go with the apple in her hair (I guess it could be ant rounded fruit, but I chose to make it an apple!).
