And all that Jam.... better than Jazz!

Good Sunday to you all, and another challenge over at That Craft Place, whose design team seems to be breeding like rabbits, so many of us now I can't keep up!  The wonderful team have created the most outrageously super projects for us all to have a nosy at, and try to emulate!  Here is mine, I used the Molly Blooms latest project kit, available from Lisa's shop to give me inspiration. I shall explain further down how I managed to use the Cameo too!

The pic above shows the 2 projects I made,  the little meander book made from 1 12x12 sheet of cardstock, filled with tags for pictures and the words you may wish to add. The ribbon is from Lisa, but the papers are Molly blooms,  I scanned the papers before cutting into them, and added them into my digital papers in the Silhouette Designer software, now I can use them anytime to create a Molly Blooms look a like, I'm sure Clare won't mind,  and I shall ask her permission when I see her next week. Fingers crossed she is ok about it.  I have decorated the book with buttons from the kit too.
All the pages in the book have machined stitched layers, quite tricky to do.

The little inset picture is of the back of the projects, I love the jar especially. I used Molly Blooms and my Spellbinders dies to make them pretty.

I have been asked how I do my pictures so neatly, well I use Serif, Craft Artist 2, various background papers and frames, with a muted edge always works a treat, I couldn't make it look so good without this programme, highly recommend.

Don't you just love Molly,  she is a grown up girl now in real life, but to Clare she can always be recreated as a pretty little girl! How I wish I could do that with my two girls!!!! The strawberries, Molly, cake, heart, flowers and leaves are from the free stamps inside the kit.  The label is from the Silhouette shop. The pretty jar is now on display at Hobbycraft Cambridge, where I work.

Thank you for looking at my little bloggie, I love that you visit me, please leave a comment, so I know you have been. I am going to enter this into some challenges. I shall list them as I go.  Have a great weekend. Lizzy xxxx

With Love

Don't you just love Saturated Canary, and I particularly like this little digi, she reminds me of my Granddaughter Lily, and the sort of capers she could get up to, and still look like butter wouldn't melt!  I love these papers from Raspberry Road too, such jolly colours! I've kept this one quite simple for me,  not too much over the top stuff, which of course I love to do,  I just needed to make a card, just for me!

Thank you for visiting my little bloggie. xxx

Boxing clever

Oh my goodness its challenge time at That Craft Place!  It comes around so quickly, but this time I really enjoyed using my Silhouette Cameo by making a box and decorating it using a super Saturated Canary image. All the products used can be bought from Lisa's super shop, and if you are in the area go visit her, its right near the seaside too! Bonus!!

The theme this time is monochrome, which doesn't have to be black and white, but any colour and shades thereof, so I chose brown, it gave me a sepia sort of look, which I love. Coloured with Copics.

Thank you for stopping by, I so appreciate it, and love to see a comment or two. Welcome also to my new followers, thank you so much xxxx

Snowy day and a Magnum!

So I'm relaxing in my motorhome, taking in the rays, so to speak when I remembered I made this card to show off Lisa's products from That Craft Place!  You know like you do when the sun gets too hot, you think of snow!  NOT!  Anyway I thought I would share this one with you lovely people, it uses a SC proper rubber stamp,  its something I don't often do, use a proper one, its usually a digi, I like to be in control of the size, hmmm maybe I should apply that rule to myself, having just had another Magnum!

Coloured with Copics and using the new Papermania A5 paper set, which I have to say is fabulous quality and rather lovely colours.

Thank you for visiting my little bloglet, I so appreciate your time with me xxxx
