December Snow | Guest Designer on Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog

Wednesday, 10 January 2018


Hey there! I'm excited to have been asked to Guest Design today on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine blog. I made a layout. Today they are giving away a free Snowflakes cut file and I have made a layout using it. 

I started off by cutting one large snowflake from white card. I then cut several more, but smaller and from vellum. I arranged the vellum snowflakes onto my layout and marked them with a pencil. I then removed them all and used the packaging technique and water colour paints to add splodges under the sowflakes. Once the background was dry I added the gorgeous vellum snowflakes back onto the layout. I stitched through each one using gold thread.

I used Pinkfresh Studio December Days to embellish my layout, added gold sequins and used a gold ink pad and snowflake stamps to add extra detail to my background.

Head over to the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog to see more, get the free cut file and see loads of other inspirational posts by the Design Team over there.

Pup Pup Boogie | Stick it Down Design Team

Monday, 1 January 2018



Hi !  It's the first of the month so it's sketch reveal day over at Stick it Down. I'm the featured designer for January's single sketch team so I'm up today instead of later in the month.  I had a go at creating a mixed media background using texture paste, a stencil and my water colour paints...I think sprays would have been a bit easier! I've used the Good Vibes collection by Crate Paper for this layout and some wood veneer doggie given to me by my lovely friend Steph (aka Deaf Steph)

Head over to the Stick it Down blog to see all the sketches and to play along.
