Happiness Tag - Penelope Dee Summer Breeze

Hello Everyone

It really has been so awesome to play with the Summer Breeze Collection from Penelope Dee.
It's such a versatile collection.

I made a general mixed media tag.


I did some gesso stencilling and stamping on the background.


I also made the large flower from some cardstock and some Penelope Dee beads.
I used the gorgeous Sizzix die-cut.
This is by far my favourite die-cut.

Please pop over to see all the new Sizzix products and inspiration! ;-)

A colleague is going off on maternity leave soon and so I was asked to make a card for her.

I used the soft and pretty Baby 2 Bride collection from Graphic 45.
Since it's going to be a boy, I emphasised blue.


I also used a chipboard piece from Enmarc, which I embossed with distress embossing powder.


I did a fair amount of fussy cutting! ;-)


I hope she will he happy with it.

Story/Win Layout - ScrapBerry's Edge of Town Collection

Hello Everyone

Apologies for being missing in action but I was really not well last week.
Thank goodness I am sooo much better and feeling myself again! ;-)

I was up on the ScrapBerry's blog with a mixed media layout, which I really love.
It's been a while since I created a rather masculine page.

Here's the page.


I used the Edge of Town Collection, which is soooo cool! ;-)
I has rusty elements and cogs...so perfect for boys! ;-)


I also used some of the Pentart Rust Effect solutions on some washers, to make them old and rusty.


I also used stamps and inks for the background.  I kept it masculine and fairly simple.

I would love it if you popped along to ScrapBerry's and had a peek...

ScrapBerry's Supply List:
Edge of Town 12x12" Paper Collection (SCB220608300b)

I hope you are all well.
