Lili of the Valley new release!

Whoopeeeeeee! I found the link to the fold my lovelies :-) http://jenniferds.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/tutorial-thursday-exploding-card.html

This is one of the soon to be released stamps/digis from Lili of the Valley (released 28th January - whoopeeeee!)
Such a beautiful, elegant image :-)

Loving this new fold. I bookmarked the page with the instructions but now I've lost it! I think I found it on a blog by a lady called Jennifer but I'm hazy on the detail - as you are when you get giddy!!!!

I promise not to embark on a 'death by photo' post!!

Right, that's me. I really am going to try and be a better blogger. Sigh. Thank you for visiting me. Hugs, Jayne xx

Perfect Pair

Aww, this image is just tooooo cute! It's one from Stampingbella and it was given to me by my friend Annette :-) It's also the first thing I coloured with my Illustrator pens many months ago.
I've used the Perfect Pear papers from NitWit Collections and the 15mm pink/white check ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

Golly, it's been such a busy week and I have a crazy weekend of playdates and classes :-) Plus I have to attack my daughters clothes with every stain remover known to man as every day she has returned from preschool wearing several layers of paint!!!! Have a great weekend, Jayne xxx

New Ribbon!

There is a beautiful new range of ribbon over at Crafty Ribbons called 'Stitches'. It's super stylish and ideal for a monochrome card.
I love a super quick card :-) I've used some Craftwork Cards papers and Anna Marie Designs stamps. Job done!

Hope you're having a fabulous week. I fell off the diet wagon yesterday - but I've been doing well so I'll just start again :-)

Hugs, Jayne

Fanciful Fuchsias

I made this sample using the Fanciful Fuchsia stamps and Illustrator pens from Crafters Companion. Jeepers - these little critters were a trial to put together! Once I'd consulted the fountain of wisdom that is youtube the construction of the fuchsias became clearer but still a tad tricky.

 It's not my usual style but I was super chuffed with myself when I'd finished!!

Hope you're having a great week. Hugs, Jayne x

Starting school!

This is a bit brighter than my usual offerings but I needed to make a card using this fab pencil ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
I tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum because the papers and ribbon were quite busy!!

I love this digi from Lili of the Valley - can't believe that my little girl will start school this year!!
Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it! Jayne xx

April Fairy

I am such a bad blogger. This is my first post this year - shocking!! In my defence I've been poorly and the last few weeks have sucked! Making this card, however, cheered me up! I've used the super cute Lili of the Valley 'April Fairy' together with a raindrop stencil and some clear embossing paste :-)
There's nothing like splashing in puddles with your wellie bobs on!!!!
Hope you've had a great start to the year. Sending hugs, Jayne xx
