Little Red Riding Hood

Today I'm bringing you a quick (ish) card that I made using some bits and pieces that I already had cut and coloured. Using ME Femme Frames I cut out two layers for my base layers and using the Pretty Pink Posh dies (mentioned below) I cut out the kraft tag. 

Behind the tag I used some white cardstock to stamp the greeting onto so that it showed through the holes in the tag. I tucked the critters into the holes too. Using some burlap ribbon I tied a bow and adhered to the top of the tag. 

Products I used:
  • Avery Elle Stamps & Dies - Red & Goldie
  • Pretty Pink Posh Die - Stitched Duo 1 & 2
  • Mama Elephant - Femme Frames Dies
  • Clearly Besotted Stamps - Many Mini Messages
  • Spectrum Noir Alcohol Colouring pens
  • White & Kraft & coloured cardstock from my stash
  • Patterned Paper
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • White A6 Card Blank
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • Multi Medium Matte (Ranger)
Thanks again for stopping by!

I've Started Project Life!

So, I finally took the plunge and decided to start Project Life! 

I've been gathering supplies over the past couple of weeks but I thought I'd show you what I started out with. 

  • American Crafts 12x12 D-Ring Album - Camera Print
  • Project Life Jade Core Kit (616 cards)
  • Project Life Jade collection 6x4 textured cards (60 pcs)
  • Project Life Jade collection 3x4 textured cards (60 pcs)
  • Project Life Page Protectors - Big variety pack 2 (60 pcs - 40x Design A, 20x Design D)

So that was my first Project Life "haul". I got what I considered to be the basics, page protectors, cards and an album, so that I could get started and add embellishments later.

The way I'm working it for now is i'm scrapping big events from the past 3-4 years. I'm still undecided whether to attempt weekly pages in 2016, but I can decide that a little closer to the time :P

Do any of you do project life? I'd love to see your pages and albums, leave me some links in the comments!

Wplus9 | From My Head Tomatoes

Hello there! Its been a while again since I last posted, I do apologise. I've been struggling to find time to make cards and write blogposts in between work but I've just bought myself a planner (review hopefully coming soon) which will hopefully help me manage my time and organise a bit better, so we will see how that goes!

Anyway, back to the cards. I got a great stamp set from Make the Day Special by Wplus9 in the sale a while ago because I just adored the sentiments. I didn't get it straight away, but when I did, I let out an audible giggle!

I tried to keep the layout pretty simple and consistent for each card. The dies I used to create the layering are:
  • Mama Elephant - Femme Frames
  • MFT Die-Namics - Rounded Rectangles
The layers were created using some paper and card from my stash to compliment the colour of the tomatoes. 

The sentiment and tomato outlines were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the solid part of the tomatoes were stamped in Avery Elle Pigment Inks in Cherry and Celery.

I layered together using double sided & foam tape as always. Most of all, I just love these punny sentiments!

Thanks for reading and I will see you soon!
