Stamping Tutorial

I have a tutorial up on the Bo Bunny blog today for using your stamps to achieve a masked effect.  I am totally in love with the new Ambrosia stamp set and keep using it on everything so I just had to use them on my tutorial!

I wanted to keep the layout pretty simple to showcase the stamps and the misting, this is the completed layout.  Not the best of photos again but the weather has been horrific here so I have really been battling with light for photos!  I actually thought we were going to have a flood yesterday!   At least that should hopefully mean the 'droughts' we have been having all over the country should come to an end ;)

If you would like to see the tutorial then hop on over to the Bo Bunny blog here

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :)

New Bo Bunny Lines and Scrapbook Magazine

I just wanted to share a couple more layouts done for the Scrapbook Magazine a while ago.  The theme was 'inspired by' Winter Weddings.  This layout of my beautiful sister was mostly inspired by the different fabrics and textures of a Winter wedding but also by the cooler colours of Winter.

 I had a bit of fun with some Organza on this layout and made two flowers with it.

This layout of my Gran was inspired by what seemed to be a popular colour scheme for a winter wedding which was red and white.  I also used the ribbon to imitate a brides corset.

 I just love this corner stamp it is one of my favourites although I can't remember who it is made by!

Last but certainly not least... the previews of the 3 new Bo Bunny lines!! :)  Click on the pictures to go through to the Bo Bunny blog  for the full range and don't forget to leave a comment on the Bo Bunny blog for a chance to win one of the new ranges!  They are all totally amazing as always! :)

Ambrosia Card and Retreat Layout

First up today I have a card done for the Bo Bunny blog focusing on Stamps.  I decided to do the whole card using just stamps and some of the gorgeous new Vintage Double Dot!   I used three different sets of Bo Bunny stamps and did a bit of embossing.  

Supplies Used :
Cardstock : Passion Fruit, Island Mist, Orange Citrus/Vintage Double Dot.
Stamps: Ambrosia; Country Garden; Enchanted
Ribbon : Aquamarine Double Dot

I also realised that I completely forgot to upload the one and only layout I managed to complete on my scrappy weekend away! So here it is...

I can't remember what the paper range is but it is a gorgeous line that I have used a few times before!  I used some of the new Bo Bunny Vintage Double Dot in Dark Denim which went well with the paper range and I was thrilled about it goes well with the photos!  I have to say if I had of thought about it when my kids were younger I would have been a bit more careful with the clothes that I bought them as I finding paper to match some of them can be a pain!  They had loads of navy clothes and have you noticed there are not many papers that have navy in them!

We had some Pizza hut last night as a treat for the kids seeing as their holidays were coming to an end and they had to go back to school today and this is what they ordered with their pizza...

Well now I have heard of everything!  But let me tell you though it was totally delicious and the kids loved it, it even comes with a little sachet of mustard to squirt along the edge.  This is them enjoying it on their beanbags while we watched Hugo!

I Crack Myself Up!

Not me lol, I Crack Myself Up is just the title of my layout as my son certainly finds himself totally hysterical on a regular basis although I have to say so do we most of the time as he has always been a bit of a clown!  I used the very cute On the Go paper range.

Although you you can't really see it in these photos I actually cut all the circles out of the white cardstock with a craft knife and then stuck pieces of patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad behind the circles.  You can see it quite clearly in real life and I think it looks much nicer than if I had of just cut the circles and stuck them on but then I am a sucker for punishment!  The fab stitching stamp I used in between the circles is from an old set of Hero Arts stamps that has a load of different stitch stamps.

Patterned Paper : On The Go 6x6 Paper Pad; On The Go Gears
Stickers : On The Go Combo Sticker
Noteworthy : On The Go 
Hero Arts Stamps

This card using the very beautiful Ambrosia collection was for the card challenge on the Bo Bunny blog where you had to make a shaped card and use handmade flowers.  This collection is so beautiful and so easy to use!

I know I have been very absent in the blogging and online world again, besides normal life my parents are currently visiting me for a month from South Africa and I have also been busy working on some commissions and just haven't had much time to get online!  I actually have a few things to upload to my blog so hopefully I will find some more time to get online soon! :)
