Red and Tan Poinsettia Christmas Card using Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Layered Poinsettia

Welcome back Lindy's fans, I hope you all have your holiday plans more under control than I do! This year over Christmas I am moving house, so instead of my usual flurry of card making and house decorating, I'm packing boxes - LOTS of boxes. In spite of the move, I still wanted to make a quick Christmas card for my Mum and Dad, so I seized the opportunity to create something special using this months' Color Challenge pallet -...

Scrapbook Layout: Simple Page using Neon Graffiti

Today I'm playing with a clean and simple scrapbooking layout using Limor Webber's new Neon Graffiti set of Flat Fabios from Lindy's Stamp Gang. Now these neon's are bright, and I mean REALLY bright - the colours are luscious, intense and bold. My first impulse when I received the new colours was to use them the same way I normally do (ie spray it everywhere!) - I quickly found out that when dealing with NEON colours, that less is more!...

Lindy's Sprays over Recycled or Kraft Colour Card or 'Beautiful Garbage'

I don't know about you all, but finances are a little tight at my place about now, so I'm looking at my craft stash in a new light and trying to use some of those things I have been collecting. Today I'm going to use some recycled/kraft coloured card that I've saved, and use a budget saving material to create a stunning pastel card. Now this may be the inside of a cardboard cereal box, the backing from a paper... Read more →

Smile Mixed Media Background Tutorial

The moment that I saw these gorgeous tissue papers from Hazel and Ruby I knew I wanted to use them on a page, so I sat down to play with a few of the newer items in my stash and this is the result - I think it would also make for an excellent 12 x 12 layout. It's only recently that I've 'found' my scrapbooking or photo page 'style' and I owe that all to Louise Nelson! I've mentioned... Read more →

Follow Your Own True North Page for Travel Blog Hop

OK I have to admit I felt a little intimidated when asked to join in on the Basic Grey, Glue Dots and Lindy's Stamp Gang Travel Blog Hop - not only do they have amazing artists on their Design Teams, but I'm so not a scrapbooker (those 12 x 12 double layouts are scary big!). BUT my motto this year has been don't let fear stop you from doing anything - so I said yes and jumped in the deep... Read more →

Flat Fabio Journal Page

I had to use these amazingly bright colours to off set my fabulous new Jane Girl stamp created by Jane Davenport - I knew right away she needed to be stamped in black on something boldly coloured (I have a few more ideas for her as well, but this one HAD to be created first). Now this may look simple at first glance, but there are layers upon layers and the closer you look the more you see, so here... Read more →
