I’m Going To Plan Our Escape

Cocoa Daisy crops are always the best.
The recent one had a little scrap lift challenge

IMG_3396

I used pieces from the July kits to create my page.

Which was a lift of this page by lovely Lisa Ottosson
Love this!

I loved the design and it pushed me outside my comfort zone
It allowed me to have fun sharing these words.

IMG_3398

I love the fun page that the lift inspired me to make.

I have another page, that I will share later, that uses the scraps and is also inspired by the design.
You have to love that type of inspiration!

Hear With Your Heart And You Won't Hear A Sound

The new One Little Word is up on Ronda’s blog.

IMG_3264

It took me a while to think of how I would use the word.

IMG_3266

But once I knew…

IMG_3267

The rest came together rather easily.

A splash of paint

Some doodling.

All ended up looking a little like this.

Have you been inspired by the One Little Word challenge yet?
It truly is amazing how much inspiration one little word can have.

You Can't Carry It With You If You Want To Survive

The Designer Challenge at Cocoa Daisy is about to end

IMG_3324

It was my turn to choose the challenge.

IMG_3325

I went for something round, something wood, something stamped and something stitched.

IMG_3326

I decided to add some machine stitched scribbles.

Cocoa Daisy - Sneak Peek - August 2014 “Modern + Vintage”

When my Cocoa Daisy kit arrived Elizabeth exclaimed that my Cocoa Pops were here.
I have to agree!
Loving the pops of colour in the August kits.

Reveal is tomorrow and if you are looking for a subscription to a scrapbooking kit
I think this month is a great place to start!

Every month I use the word versatile
But these kits truly are!
Lots of colour options
Colours that work beautifully together.
Embellishments that will inspire you to create.

If I haven’t sold you on this one
Then make sure you have a look through the gallery
Or visit the forum for reveal.

Guesting For Ronda Palazzari

I was quite honoured to be asked to create something for my gorgeous friend Ronda

IMG_3012

I used a couple of stencils from her range at The Crafter’s Workshop 

IMG_3011

I created these two cards (the lower one using a Scrapmatts coffee pot)

IMG_3007

And a layout.

IMG_3008

You can read how I made them HERE

IMG_3009

I really love stencils and love being able to use them in different ways.
