Blog hop June 2014

I have decided to mark the first day of my school holidays by taking part in the blog hop. I whipped up a quick card. I seem only to be able to make birthday cards at the moment! I need some new sentiments I think! :) 

Anyway I kept things quite simple following the sketch on nicholes blog. I decided to add a butterfly as my embellishment in the middle and I fancied trying the vellum trend doing the rounds at the moment. 

I love the rainbow look as well so I felt this card would suit it. Hey presto we have a small circular rainbow- ish look to the card. Add a few sequins and that's the card done 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a fab day.

Make it Monday DIY notebook

This is such a cute make it Monday. I love home made gifts. They are so cute and thoughtful. They are a total pleasure to make. 

Anyway. I wanted to go really bright on this cover. So I cut various widths of cardstock and stuck it on the front of the notebook front. I then die cut (in my new big shot woo hoo) and stamped images from be happy. I decided they looked a bit plain so I attacked them with a clear wink of Stella pen. Sooo pretty. 

Inside are a bunch of mutli coloured pieces of cardstock. I wanted to keep the rainbow theme going :) 

I am pleased as punch of my notebook. It's not going anywhere apart from next to my phone. I love love love it. 

Thanks for visiting. 


Big hugs. Lesley

New toy

I broke my cuttlebug on Tuesday. So after some advice I bought a big shot. It's so cute. And I have to say it cuts beautifully and is really smooth to use! I love, love, love it. I have added a pic of it. Please ignore my messy craft room. It needs a huge clean out. 
Hugs. Lesley
