I have had so much trouble photographing this layout. It really sparkles like a cold frosty day but its almost impossible to see in a photo.

I started it at Christmas but left it until now to finish off, well it seemed fitting with all the snow we have had recently.

The snowflakes in the background are texture paste mixed with clear glitter and then, when dry, coated with Stickles to make it sparkle even more.
The heavy lace at the bottom is also dripping with sparkles and this floats down to the bottom of the layout.
The lovely mdf clock is from Samantha K and the flowers are a selection left over from class. I am now playing with my journal plus I have more goodies to add to the shop so watch this space. xx

Be Happy

So day two of crafting till my hearts content but this time with no video so a bit more relaxing for me. I am beginning to realise that less is more and that a little splash of colour is sometimes all you need to finish a layout.

The little patches of pink on the background were made with watercolour paint pens and a splash of water.

This is the second of three layouts I hope to complete this weekend.
and a few more photos to show the detail.

I am really enjoying myself using papers and embellishments I have had for a while. More tomorrow xx

Not a fan of snow

no it's not my age just the fact that I've had to cancel the Crop today leaving me with 12 blueberry muffins, 24 Angel slices, two fruit cakes, 12 doughnuts and 8 pints of milk. Dinner tonight will be interesting lol.

So what do I do when I'm stuck in doors? Well I make a few layouts of course. Here is the first one for today
Here are a few close ups and I am in the process of loading a process video onto You tube which I will add to the bottom of this post later on.

The flowers are mostly Prima and some little rosebuds I had in my stash and the little gems I used for decoration were from Poundland which I found in the wedding section. 

and here is the process video. Sorry it's on it's side but didn't realise until it was to late. Will try better next time lol. 
Don't forget I have some lovely kits in my etsy shop The Kit Cafe so don't forget to take a look.

Enjoy a cold day indoors xx.
