Ink & Share April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Ink & Share Blog Hop This month’s theme is New Beginnings or Spring I was struggling with this month’s theme and whilst looking through some photographs I found three from when my husband changed our back garden from grass and flowerbeds to paving and raised flower beds. I remember taking these photographs just after he had started extending the decking and of course our two dogs just had to give him […]

Stamptastic Friends April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this Month’s Blog Hop with Stamptastic Friends. Our theme this month is a Colour Challenge and for a change we could choose our own three colours. As everyone knows my favourite all time Stampin’ Up! colour is Melon Mambo but as I had just bought the Last a Lifetime bundle and my daughter is getting married, I thought I would try out a couple of different colour ways. I had already made a […]

Stampin Dreams April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stampin Dreams Blog Hop. The theme this month is Birthdays I decided to do some No Stampin Cards which would make a useful kit to send out to customers and friends so that they could have a go themselves. I started by cutting a 6×6″ piece of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper into three pieces before mounting them on to three mat layers and a card base. Then I die cut […]

Scrapbooking Global April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. I love the theme this month as it means I can continue scrapbooking my old family photographs and of course add some family history notes to it later. It took me a little while to choose which photographs I could use. Then I had to choose the Designer Series Paper and layout to use. I did cheat and look at the layouts in the Scrapbooking Global Facebook […]

Kre8tors April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to April’s Kre8tors Blog Hop The theme this month is Spring. As I have recently been making a few cards using flowers I decided to go for an old favourite of mine and use the Fable Friends stamp set. I find that I tend to always use the rabbit stamp from this set so this was the ideal chance to use the other stamp sets in the set. I started by cutting three 10 […]

Colour Combo April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Colour Combo Blog Hop. For my project this month I decided to use a technique that was the idea of Bruno Bertucci. It is called the Scrappy Strip Technique and is an ideal way of making cards from scraps. I decided to use the technique on 10cm x 10cm cards as I had already made some A6 birthday cards using this technique and wanted some smaller Thank you cards. Then I […]

Stamp ‘N Hop April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop. The theme this month is CASE from pInterest. Like many crafters I use pInterest to find ideas for cards, scrapbook layout and other ideas around the home and garden. When I saw this month’s theme I though Oh good I can find something to CASE. Then when it came to it I was undecided what card I would CASE as there were so many to choose. […]

Ink & Share March 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop This month’s theme is to incorporate RIBBON into a layout. This year I have decided that I want to scrapbook all my old family photographs rather than keeping them away in a box. For this project I want to keep it simple but try to show off the photographs as most are either black and white, sepia or copies of originals. As this month’s theme […]

Stampin Dreams March 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Blog Hop The theme this month is Easter When I think of Easter I think of fluffy bunnies and my favourite bunny is Peter Rabbit. So one of my go to stamp sets for Easter is Fable Friends. For my cards this month I made a 10 cm x 10 cm card base. I then stamped four bunny stamps and coloured them in using watercolour pencils and a blender pen. I […]

Scrapbooking Global March 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s blog hop. The theme for this month is Black and White photos I love looking at old black and white photographs especially the ones that show what the fashions were at the time photo was taken. Whilst I was looking through my family photos I found two from when my parents were engaged and they went on holiday with my dad’s parents to Great Yarmouth in June 1964. They married in […]
