Let's Build A Sandcastle


I am back with my DT project this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge, a summer layout :)


I've dipped in to my stashbusting box for this layout, digging out some papers from several collections some quite old!

The photo was taken on Exmouth Beach a few years ago.


The background has a hint of yellow, grey and blue Gelatos underneath stamping in Distress inks and grey Stazon ink.



I found some very old rub-ons at the bottom of the box too!

Dig out some old stash and join us for this weeks Summer theme!
Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by

Hello Sunshine Layout


Hello :)
As promised I am back to share my DT project for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge.
all the challenge details, entry and inspiration can be found HERE.


My project this week is a layout using the August Page kit Northam Burrows.
The kit will be available on the website soon, I have not added it yet as I am having a new site this month :)


The background was created with ink splatters and stamping with a date stamp and arrow stamp.


The die cut chipboard honeycomb was painted with Fire Red Maya Gold paint, you can just about see the hint of silver in it which gives it a lovely sparkle.


I added stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit. One kit plus an extra die cut has made 2 layouts so far!


I used the same sketch from the kit layout and added a cluster at the bottom right corner using, pattern paper, a sticker, chipboard, cotton thread, stamping and paint splatters.


There is still more papers and stickers left so I may get another layout from it or it may end up decorating my planner!
I love it when a kit can be stretched :)
How many projects can you get from a single page kit?
Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend

#journey card


Good Morning :)
As promised I am back with my DT project for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge.
All the challenge details, entry and gorgeous DT inspiration can be found HERE


I've made a card using my go to-if in doubt-can't help myself design (lol)


The lovely boat die cut is from a My Minds Eye die cut pack, the DP's are some odd bits from 6x6" paper pads mostly My Minds Eye again.


The background was created with a Dylusions Squares stencil and two distress ink pads (Chipped Sapphire and Crushed Olive). I then stamped some dots with black Versafine.

Of course I had to add cotton thread too!


The #sentiment is from a C4E Page kit (Roosting)
I probably could have added some enamel dots or sequins but I forgot lol!
That's it from me today, I hope you will join us this week :)
Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by!

Stencil Stamping Hello Card


Hello :)
I have my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge to share.
All The challenge details, entry and DT inspiration can be found HERE.


My card uses a technique I taught at the C4E Crop and workshops this month, stamping with stencils.
This is a great way to get more from your stencils and can create fabulous backgrounds for cards, layouts and journal pages.


The technique is far from new as many people who use inks with stencils will 'blot' the stencil on to another page or piece of paper so as not to waste the ink. For this card I did not ink through the stencil at all but added ink directly onto the stencil then pressed it on to the card.


Once the ink was dry I stamped over it with Versafine ink and two different stamps.


The die cut feathers were cut from silver miri card and added on to the card with sticky fixers and some cotton thread behind.


To finish the card I added a few sequins and stamped a 'Hello' sentiment with Versafine ink.
I seem to be adding cotton thread to all my projects at the moment lol! 
Do you have a repeating element in your projects?
That's all from me today, thank-you for stopping by have a great weekend!
Michele :)
