Saturday Simply Sketched Challenge; June 2017

My Project 6-001

Hi everyone!

We decided to mix it up a bit this month and go for a colour challenge rather than a sketch, and the lovey Hannah gave us these to play around with…


I love that Hannah has pushed us out of our comfort zone with this one.  I knew straight away which stamp set I wanted to use, especially with Bushing Bride featuring…


Aren’t these pigs just the cutest! We saw them in Convention back in April and lets just say there was nearly a scuffle when it came to Prize Patrol!



I hope you like my project today.  Please do continue along the hop by clicking Previous to go to Sally, or forward to go to Angelina.

Thanks for stopping by!

Triangle Box

Hi everyone

Something a little different from me today, I was messing around with some Easter Eggs I bought and knew I wanted to make a box for them.  Yes I’m a little late putting this up but it’s perfect for little gifts too!

I hope you enjoy this VIDEO (I know! First video in 3 years!) please do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

The products we have used are all available in the current Annual and/or seasonal Stampin’ Up!® catalogues. To hop along, please use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping.

Wow what a challenge Jerim set us this time! The theme was “create something winter themed but not Christmas”.  I thought it would be fairly straight forward but with Christmas having been so recent I could not shift my head away from thinking about it!After a searching through my stamp sets and punches I finally found some inspiration with the ‘Foxy Friends’ stamp set


I love the wreath effect on this, wish I’d thought of it for some Christmas cards but I have a few ideas brewing for it now!



I hope you’ve liked my contribution to the hop, use the buttons to hop forward to Anne or back to Keila.

Simply Sketched Challenge: November 2016

My Project 6-001

Hi everyone!

So after 7 months I’m FINALLY jumping back into our Simply Sketched Challenges.  I’ve really missed doing these challenges and must admit I’m still not 100% with my crafting skills so have struggled to come up with something despite loving the beautiful sketch by Anna.


Isn’t it the cutest! I really wanted to use an image but then realised I haven’t allowed self to buy anything new so I decided to go back to an old favourite.


I do love the copper trend that’s around at the moment and made use of the new copper foil in the background.


I’m sorry for the poor photos, I finally finished at 11:30 last night so light was not the best for photography!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my sketch today.  Don’t forget to use the buttons below to jump over to Hannah’s piece, or back to Justyna’s.

Thanks for stopping by!

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge No. 8!

My Project 6-001

Hi everyone!

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

What an exciting month I’ve had! Two of my oldest (known the bride since I was 3!) friends got married, and I went to training in Telford with Stampin’ Up! Was so lovely to see my second family!

Today’s sketch was provided by the lovely Karen McDonald.

My Project 14-001

I will admit I struggled with this one but have attempted it! Was torn between several stamp sets, but decided to stick to Balloon Celebration because I LOVE it!!




For the four that needed highlighting as per the sketch I attached bakers twine and sequin trim, they are also mounted with dimensional foam pads.

I really hope you like today’s offering, don’t forget to carry on hopping along to Kathleen’s blog, she has something wonderful to share with you all!


Thanks for stopping by!
