Reverse Words New kid on the block

Hello there,
I hope you are doing well, if you stopped here for a blog post yesterday I am sorry I did a Facebook Live instead on my business page about some new Product Releases this month. If you wish to connect with me via Facebook follow this link.
The new and very gorgeous choices and I am showcasing one of them today.


A new stamp set called Reverse Words and I have to say while I love the coloured glimmer papers (probably everyone's favourite) I really like the style of these words and I only wish we had MORE of them. 

They are just gorgeous and lend themselves well to a variety of techniques. I kept it really simple as I didn't have lots of time but wanted to have  play with them as soon as :) I paired it with the yummy Jar of Love stamp set and matching framelits. 


The colours used are Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay all from the Brights Colour Collection.


What do you think about these words? do you like them?
Thank you for joining me today I will see you soon with another cute project and an update on the studio. Till then much love and xxxx's

Carousel Birthday Frame

Hello there,

How is your weekend so far?, before I go on I want to thank you for your sweet comments you are leaving me, its so nice to see some familiar names that are still reading this blog of mine inspite of me being so lax with it. I am however working on improving that !!

The plan was to blog yesterday but it turned out to be one of those busy days and on top I was feeling icky like I was going down with something, lucky its all good today and I am busy sanding down and painting the doors of the studio. I chose a dark charcoal to match the windows on our house, it should look lovely against the red brick.

Inside we now have a toilet wall up and I reckon the team only have a day or two work left on finishes before they leave and we can start on the pretty... that day cannot come soon enough now.

Today I want to show you a sweet little home decor frame I made using the Cupcakes and Carousel Birthday Stamp Set and the matching Embellishment kit.





It turned out so cute and it will look lovely in any little princess bedroom. The background is made using some of the paper from the matching Paper Stack , overstepped using one of the stamps and some ink. 



The canopy was also constructed from designer paper, and the horses stamped, cut and suspended from the canopy using thin strips of windows sheets. 
What you cannot see in these pictures is that those little horses are glittered so they sparkle and shine when the light hits them.



Thank you for visiting and I truly hope you are having a relaxing weekend. Till next time much love and crafty hugs xoxo
