Sketchy Sunday no. 90

Oh I just can't wait! Santa's on his way. I'm lucky enough to have a couple of weeks off work over Christmas and intend to devote myself to all things festive, from shopping to baking and the inevitable eating for England, it's gonna be a great Christmas. I'm loving sitting here with hubby in the glow of my lovely tree, laden with our decorations, it just doesn't get better than this. Here's a peek at the festive gorgeousness.



With a couple of free weeks I reckon I'm bound to squeeze some crafting in, between all the shopping and eating, of course that means I'm going to need a sketch so here we have this week's inspiration...Sketch no. 90.





Have a wonderful happy scrappy time.

Sketchy Sunday 89

The tree is up! Yes Christmas has arrived and I now have a 7ft vision of twinkly festiveness commanding the centre of attention in my living room......and I love it. There's also advents, candles, snowball lights and my Christmas cross stitch pictures scattered around the apartment. So, I am in full Christmas mode, but never fear I have not shirked my sketchy commitments and here we have sketch number 89.... we're getting ever closer to the big 100, who would have thunk it!



If you'd like to see my advent calender you can find it here, where you'll also see the start of my second advent, a set of mini houses I altered in frosty fashion. 

Happy Festive Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday no. 88

These weeks are rolling by and Christmas is on the horizon, so I couldn't help it, I just had to add a festive twist to this week's sketch in the shape of my favourite snowflakes.


Just add your favourite snowy story and if snow days aren't your thing, swop those snowflakes for stars, flowers or your go to shape. 

Happy Scrapping.

Joy To The World

It's no secret I love all things festive and, luckily for me, Ray is exactly the same. We're in prep mode at the moment, first task on the list was to stock the advents, yes there's more than one and this year we have a mix of After Eight Mints, a mint chocolate selection and Liquorice Allsorts...a nice little mix as far as I'm concerned. This will be closely followed by tree day, which is serious business as it has to be the biggest and best we can shoehorn into our apartment - and that's just the beginning!

Along with home preparations you may have noticed my photo box project, I've also put together a mini book ready for all those extra festive pics that don't make it onto a layout....... there's always loads of those. 

Embellishment clusters flow towards the tree decoration centre

A half parenthesis die-cut makes a shaped tag pocket

Self adhesive glitter paper makes a sparkly die-cut snowflake

A die-cut pocket holds more die-cut tags in place

Another die-cut tag makes a cute co-ordinating pocket

I went for a tried and tested pocket page mini with lots of tags and plenty of room for embellishments. The flaps are actually large tags that pull out from the top loading pockets.I based the album cover on my sketch 55. The Joy To The World tree decoration was a sale purchase last year and I always meant for it to be an album cover piece. I'm very into the embellishment clusters at the mo' and always come back to add a few extras at a later date, but this one might be done for the front....although the spine is fair game. 

Happy Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday no. 87

Winter has definitely arrived and my thoughts have turned to preparing for Christmas. Today's plan is to clear some cupboards and do a spot of decluttering followed by a reward of a bit of crafty time. I've got a new Christmas mini album to finish off and then I have designs on the new shadow box I received in my Docrafts kit, but in the meantime I've drawn up this sketch for those of you looking for a little scrapbooking inspiration. 


Happy Scrapping.

Matchbox Madness goes large

As part of my Docrafts PDT kit I was lucky enough to receive some of their new Bare Basics large matchboxes. These sturdy little beauties, priced at £2.50 for three, came just when I was in the grip of matchbox madness....which, let's face it, seems to be most of the time lately. Anyway, I decided to see if I could make a larger version of my altered matchboxes using the same techniques, including creating an art plaque to fit inside with an easel.




I'm really pleased with how it came out. I used papers from the Wellington Christmas paper pack to cover the matchbox and a plethora of shiny, jingly and varied embellishments to adorn the top and sides. I topped it all off with a couple of tags and used some wooden beads as feet. Next for the plaque. I cut a piece of mount board to size and covered it in gold glitter. I cut a few triangles of paper from the Wellington paper pack and glued them to the plaque in a naive Christmas tree shape with a little trunk piece. Loads of small adhesive gems as ornaments give it an even more festive touch. I added my printed word pieces and smothered the whole thing in an even layer of 3d gloss. After drying overnight....I've learned to just leave it to dry and not poke it the same evening.....I covered the back in a Wellington tag. Lastly, I cut a small easel from the packaging of one of my embossing folders - it's the perfect thickness of plastic for these.




Next on my shopping list will be the medium sized boxes which come in a pack of four, perfect for a mini chest I'm thinking. 

If you've been gripped by matchbox fever do post a link and go have a little lie down in a dark room.

Happy Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday no. 86

Sunday rolls around and that means it's sketch time, so here it is sketch no. 86.



I've gone back to a single image for this one and I think it would work beautifully with a mix of patterns for a festive themed layout, but then I'm getting my Christmas on....I can't help it, the shops are playing Christmas songs and there's gifts galore being thrust boldly forward. I've not even started shopping yet, but the list will be drawn up shortly, the bank manager put on guard and the car boot
emptied in readiness.

Now, just to finish off my crafty catch-up. Here's the last of the Gorjuss cards using the Tweed Collection.



I love a layer and cluster on my scrapbook pages and it seemed only fair to apply this to a card too.



The photo doesn't show this clearly, but the portrait is on the inside of the card with the frame mounted around an aperture cut into the card front. 

So, that's it for today...I'm off for a little TV time, Suits is calling. 

Happy Scrapping.

Crafting with sole!

Wednesday was an odd day, let me explain....I had a pain in my foot for ages, it got really bad just as I was diagnosed with cancer Christmas 2013 and call me daft, but I thought let's get the cancer sorted first and then worry about the foot. Now, cancer kicked into touch the foot thing started to nag at me again, but as time had gone on the pain had subsided somewhat and flatties and boots were getting worn more often than my favourite heels, which probably helped. Anyway, off to the docs and an x-ray duly organised. I phoned the docs to check the results as I received another appointment for a scan. I was told the X-ray was clear and it was just a make sure kind of thing. So off to the scan where the doc asked me what my GP had said, he looked confused when I said the x-ray was clear and said "yes, it's clear, clear what's wrong with Ĺ·our foot! There's a half a sewing needle in it!" . He then showed me this, pretty obvious sewing needle and I know exactly when it happened, some 20 years ago!


The needle actually went into my heel and I thought it was just a half needle I'd trodden on, but it turns out the reason I only found half a needle was the other half had broken off in my heel - no wonder it hurt for ages! Anyway, it has worked its way around my foot, hence the wandering strange pains. So, now I'm waiting for the operation to have it removed and then I will be tottering around in my fave heels on a more regular basis.

Now, for those of you interested in my crafty news, rather than tales of my foot issues, here's a few of my recentish Docrafts makes using the Santoro Gorjuss collections.


This first project is a decorated Bare Basics bag to which I added a small pocket and popped in a tag mini book made from 6x6 cards from the same collection.


The brief for the cards was to keep the designs simple, but I don't think they're any less effective for that.



Have a happy scrappy day and a big thank you for taking the time to visit.

WOYWW 336

Hi fellow desk travellers. Just a quick post from me today as I'm busy doing a little crafting and we all know how precious those moments are. 

So, here it is! Not my usual desk, but my dining table as I'm keeping hubby company with a bit of telly in the background. 


I'm playing with the Papermania Bare Basics large matchboxes at the moment, I have a bit of a thing for matchboxes lately and these are no exception. 

If you'd like to join in the hop you can find more info. here.

Enjoy the hop and Happy Scrapping.

Snap, Jingle and box!

December is on the horizon and I fancied a change from my usual Christmas mini album and with my penchant for decorated boxes it was always going to go this way at some point. So, here it is my Christmas 2015 photo project box.


I've used Papermania's Folk Christmas to cover a medium nested box from the Papermania Bare Basics range. I then made 25 mini envelopes to which I added a black die cut shape and Anita's Glitterations numbers, labelling them 1 - 25. I decorated the lid with buttons, bells, gems, charms, glittered wooden numbers, hearts and a Gorjuss book plate, all on top of a red label die-cut. Lastly I added wooden beads to the base of the box as feet.



I cut a photo mat for each envelope and my plan is to take a photo a day in December to add to the mats. It's a pretty Christmas project and as a bonus the box will look great on a shelf for the festive season. 

The lovely thing about this project is you use any size box and just adjust your envelope sizes to fit. You could just as easily make this as an advent calendar with the addition of your favourite wafer thin mint or for the dieters among us a sweet Christmas quote on each tag. 

Go on....get your festive on!

Happy Scrapping

Sketchy Sunday no.85

Well, time is ticking on and I'm sure you're all neck deep in Christmas crafting - me too! So it seems only fitting that this week's sketch has a somewhat festive theme. I love snowflakes and I'm lucky enough to have the Xcut Snowflakes die set (XCU 503923) along with a smaller Xcut snowflake die that came free with a copy of Creativity magazine. They will definitely come into play for this sketch and I've already earmarked some photos from a snowy day, so if I can just get my act together you might see it before Christmas, but no promises. 

 


Now for a little crafty catch-up. These projects were fairly recent commissions:  first up we have a waterfall mini book that was made from a 6 x 6 card. 


Next is a card, using one of the Gorjuss girls stamps which I put together using a decoupage technique. 


So that's me for today, but pop by tomorrow to see my latest Christmas project and don't forget the Inspiration Interrogation prize is still up for grabs, so why not join in the fun here.

Happy Scrapping

Sketchy Sunday no. 84

OK, the spooking has been fun, but now the cobwebs have been swept away and the Halloween deccies are back nestled in their cardboard box which means it's time for a new sketch. 


I love a mixed cluster and this one incorporates all my favs, but of course make it your own and use your favourite elements. 

Happy Scrapping.

Monster Mail Docrafts PDT blog hop

Welcome to our ghoulish get together and the latest Docrafts Project Design Team blog hop. Our challenge this time was to create a Halloween or Fall themed project. Now, I'll admit this project may not have been my most elaborate and time consuming, but I have a definite fondness for my spooky little treat box and the fact that it's stuffed full of sweets doesn't hurt.




I created a 'mummy' panel by roughly inking a sheet of grey cardstock them chopping it into strips and inking the edges. I punched two small circles and glued them to a background piece of black cardstock for eyes. I added strips of the grey cardstock to the black panel, overlapping the edges and framing the eyes. Once I'd covered enough of the black background I dragged a black ink pad lightly over the grey strips to highlight the edges, then die cut and added two gems for pupils.

I made a small treat box and adhered the die cut to the top. A strip of patterned paper from the Forever Friends Decadence paper pack, dome gems for feet and a couple of plastic spiders and it was finished. Filled full of sweets it's a quick Halloween treat.

Now, why not see what the rest of the team have been up to, but watch out for ghouls,beasties and all things that go bump in the night.

Inspiration Interrogation no. 4

OK, we've had a little break so it's time for another Inspiration Interrogation post, The purpose of these five questions is to hopefully provide a bit of inspiration for a layout, mini album or home project.....or it's just a bit of fun, either way is fine by me. For those of you up for this little exercise there's an added incentive of a crafty prize to one lucky linker. The winner will be drawn on the 16th November, so you have time to get your post linked.

Good luck and to start the ball rolling here's the questions with my answers. 

1. What's the oldest item of clothing in your wardrobe that you still wear? And how old is it?

I think this is probably a little denim skirt that I bought some 25 years ago, that's shocking I know. It's so old I can't even remember where I got it and the text has worn off the label. I wear it loads in winter with opaque tights and little biker boots, where as when I first bought it I probably wore it more with stilettos, although now and again I do still dare.

2. What's the last film you saw at the cinema? And when?

We went to see Spectre the new James  Bond film yesterday, I found it disappointing and to be honest a bit long winded, but I'm not a huge Bond fan. We go to the cinema fairly regularly courtesy of the Meerkat Movie deal, well worth it for us as we only bought a days travel insurance to qualify for the deal. Next up for viewing pleasure could be The Last Witch Hunter, it looks like a fun bit of nonsense. 

3. What was your favourite childhood meal?

This is an easy one for me, any Sunday Tea at my nan and grandad's.They were real eastenders and lived in Whitechapel, so every Sunday morning grandad would walk down to Petticoat Lane Market to the Tubby Isaacs seafood stall to buy pints of prawns, whelks, cockles and winkles. My sister and I had the job of de-eyeing the winkles, well that's what grandad called it, where you use a needle to flick off the 'eye' and pull the winkle out of the shell. Late Sunday afternoon we all gathered round for the buttered bread and sea food liberally covered in black pepper and vinegar.......fantastic.  

4. What TV show have you watched more than any other?

Oh, that's a bit of a close one. I think it's probably a tie between House......brilliant medical series starring Hugh Laurie, do give it a go if you haven't seen it.....and Angel starring David Boreanaz, it's full of vampires, monsters, black flappy coats, what's not to love? I couldn't even begin to tell you how many times I've watched these, but it's a lot and having typed this I'm now getting the urge to crack open the box sets and give them another go....it's a disease I tell ya!

5. Halloween Humbug or Fright Fan?

I love all the celebrations, any excuse for sweets and cake is good in my book, throw in a reason for Ray to bake his awesome pumpkin pie and you're onto a winner. We go the whole hog, with spooky witchy candle holders, carved pumpkin lanterns both fresh and battery operated and then of course the cauldron full of sweeties. We have Chilli Con Carnage for dinner, get it! And of course the pumpkin pie for dessert followed by an evening of horror movies, it's spooktacular!


Now, hopefully this has fired you up to share, so why not join in with a link to your own answers post and the chance to win a crafty prize. 

Happy Scrapping.

Get your spook on.....

It's time to get my spook on and as I'm still working through my matchbox phase a Halloween miniature was my preferred option. I've used mainly Docrafts products with the addition of a pumpkin, bat, silver button and skull and crossbones charm. The pumpkin was a bracelet clip charm originally, the bat was part of an embellishment set and the skull and crossbones charm comes from my favourite bead shop in London, It's a great shop for picking up odd charms, instead of having to purchase a whole pack you can pick up a selection, it's well worth a visit if you're in town. Have a look here to see their range http://www.beadworks.co.uk/.

I still have to complete a plaque for the box, but as we're getting close to Halloween I thought I'd share the project so far. 


I'm still really enjoying these little mini art pieces and it's a great way to use up those odd little elements. If you'd like to create your own version here's a list of the Docrafts product I used.

Buttons (30pcs) - Forever Friends - Classic Decadence  FFS 354301
A4 Paper Pack (32pk) - Forever Friends - Classic Decadence
Adhesive Dome Borders (5pcs) - Forever Friends - Classic Decadence - Silver FFS 351102
Adhesive Dome Borders (5pcs) - Forever Friends - Classic Decadence - Black FFS 351103
5mm Adhesive Stones (117pcs) - Silver PMA 351601
3mm Adhesive Stones (206pcs) - Silver PMA 351605
Polka Dot Buttons (30pcs) - Capsule - Midnight Blush PMA 354031
Charm Pack (32pcs) - Pocket Full of Posies PMA 356907

Now where's that pumpkin pie recipe?

Sketchy Sunday no. 82 & 83

Welcome to Sketchy Sunday and a weekly dose of inspiration, well when I say weekly I must apologise as last Sunday was the first time I'd missed a sketch....the dreaded lurgy, which everyone seems to have at the moment and a bit of a run of work commitments conspired to rob me of my usual sketch time...excuses, excuses...but back on track with a new sketch today and the missing one from last week.

I've gone all frosty with a snowflake inspired sketch, but if you're still scrapping those summer pics just swap out the snowflakes for something a little more summer themed, flowers or butterflies are always winners in my book. 

The sketch from last week is more story based with a strong simple design, I hope one or both of these inspire you to create.

Now a quick plug for a coming post. Thursday I'll be posting a new Inspiration Interrogation, a fun five questions to inspire you to create a scrapbook layout. Why not join in for the chance to win a crafty prize to die for!

Happy Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday no. 81

Ok, I'm back on track this week despite a lovely lot of goodies to play with .....sorry to rub it in....I've managed to put them to one side and draw up this week's sketch. I'm loving the multi-photo layouts at the moment so a grid design was top of my list and here it is, sketch no. 81.


Now, one of the reasons I was late with the sketch last week was that a good friend was doing a demo at her hair salon and she asked if I could pop along and take some pictures. It was a challenge as it was important not to interrupt the hair extensions demo. I've never taken these kind of shots before, but I really enjoyed it and thanks to my gorgeous assistant (Ray) I ended up with plenty of shots I was pleased with...hopefully she is too. 





So if you're in the market for some gorgeous hair extensions, visit the Blo Bar in Queens Road, Essex.





Happy Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday on a Monday.....




For those of you who came looking for a sketch yesterday you were probably surprised to see a new mini album. The mini was my effort for the latest Docrafts Project Design Team blog hop, if you haven't make the trip why not have a look at the previous post for links to my team mates blogs. 

I hope you made the trip back today because it's one of those special weeks where I'm holding Sketchy Sunday on a Monday and here it is Sketch no. 80. 





I'm on a bit of a Christmas crafty kick so I may use this one for another of my Christmas photos. I think if I replace the flowers with snowflakes that would make a lovely twinkly page and you know I have a bit of a thing for bling.

As always, thanks for visiting and I hope you'll leave a link to any pages you've been inspired to make. 

Happy Scrapping.

Docrafts PDT Summer Sizzler Blog Hop

Hi fellow blog hoppers and thanks for joining in with the Docrafts PDT Summer Sizzler Blog Hop.

The team challenge was to make a project that reminds you of summer and for me that had to include photos, so it was obvious a mini album was called for....let's face it, for me a mini album is almost always called for! I wanted to include photos from days out as well as those park walk photos that are always part of our daily amble. 




I decided on a simple version which has a deceptive amount of space for such a small mini. If you'd like to make your own version here's how.....

Cut two strips of patterned paper 12” x 3.5”. Score down from the 12” edge at 2 ¾”, 5 ½”, 8 ¼” and 11”.  Fold the 1” flap over the adjacent section with patterned sides facing and continue folding at score lines in a accordion fold. Repeat for second strip. 

Cut one piece 1 ¾” x 3.5” . Score in half down from the 1 ¾” edge, fold at the score line. Apply adhesive to the two patterned flaps and adhere one flap to the back of last 2 ¾” section of each folded 12” strip, joining them together. 

Apply a fine line of adhesive at the side and bottom inside of each folded section to create pockets. This creates a book of four pages with 1” flap at each end. 

Cut two chipboard covers 4” square. Cover with patterned paper. Line up the book spine with the inside back edge of the chipboard cover and adhere the 1” flap to the cover. Repeat for the back cover.

Add self adhesive crochet edging to cover the spine. Cut tags to fit the pockets and embellish the front cover.

Now just to add the pics.








For my album I used Papermania Simply Floral, Folk Floral and Craft Collections Pastels as well as Capsule Cardstock and Crochet Edging.

Now why not see what the rest of the team have been up to.......

Sketchy Sunday no. 79

It's time for another sketch and so here we are with sketch no. 79. This one is great for those stories which follow an action sequence and has plenty of room for the journaling too. 


Last weeks sketch inspired me to create this layout using supplies from my new Docrafts Project Design Team kit...thanks Docrafts!

I used the Wellington Christmas 12 x 12 paper pack, Wellington Christmas Ultimate pack and Capsule Collection cardstock. The tree embellishment on the journaling and the gold garlands are cut using the new Shadow Box Christmas Fireplace die. I love using the shadow box dies, I find them surprisingly versatile. 


I hope this week's sketch inspires you to create and as always thanks for stopping by. Obviously if you do make a layout using any of the sketches on the site please leave a comment and a link to your image, I'd love to see it. 

Happy Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday no. 78

It's Sunday and that means a new sketch. This weeks is a fairly simple single photo version. I have a Christmas picture in mind for this one hence the festive embellishments.

So here we have it sketch no. 78.


Now for a recent 365 Project photo, my homemade planner. I picked up a cheap small binder and added a Poundland diary and a few pockets and dividers. This shows one of the pockets that I filled with tags and tapes to use in my planner. It cost me £5 to put this binder together and it's proved very handy as I designed it for the way I wanted to use it and it looks pretty too.


Have a happy scrappy day.

Matchbox Madness continues......

Those of you who have visited before (big thank you) will know I’ve had a recent obsession with matchboxes. So when I received my new Docrafts kit I couldn’t resist putting together a festive little number using the new Pocket Full of Posies range.

The charm pack is what swung it, with all those pretty frames, gems, buttons and charms they were perfect for my heavily embellished mini box art. I added a few Jingle Bells from the Papermania Create Christmas range to fill in the gaps and bring a festive note when you pick up the box.





I covered the matchbox drawer and case in patterned paper. Added my embellishments using Anita’s 3d gloss finish, this stuff is great for the heavier elements and left to dry. The plaque is a little piece of blue mountboard which coated in blue glitter glue sparkles beautifully. A white glitter paper die-cut snowflake overlaps the edge. I filed off the rest of the snowflake with an emery board in a downward motion, to give a really smooth neat edge. The mountboard edge I coloured with a blue permanent marker. After adding my printed text pieces I coated the front with 3d gloss finish and left to dry overnight, don’t be tempted to prod it earlier. Once dry I covered the back in co-ordinating patterned paper and slipped it into the box along with a small easel cut from plastic packaging. Lastly I glued a crystal bead on each corner of the bottom of the box as feet and there you have it, as pretty from the back as it is from the front.





Happy Scrapping

Sketchy Sunday no.77

Those weeks roll around quickly and I think they must be speeding up as my latest team kit is a Christmas one...eek!
So I'm working on a little festive make at the moment which I'll post soon, but in the meantime here's the latest Sketchy Sunday no.77 which I based on a layout I made a little while back.


And here's the original layout.....I was on a bit of a distressing kick at the time.



It's a great one for scraps, with a misted background and inked edge to tie it all together.

Now, if you're after a bargain this week then take yourself down to Hobbycraft. I popped in yesterday and picked up some Artiste Pigment Ink Pads for £1 each, half price. They had loads of colours and I'm sorely tempted to pick up some more as I only picked up the ones I use the most, black, white and brown. 

Happy Scrapping.

The Lost Projects.....episode 1

Once upon a time in a craft room not far from here, there was a half finished mini book. Yes, we all have them, those projects that we start in a fit of inspiration,.....and that's as far as it gets. Now I've decided I've had enough of these sorry specimens, languishing in drawers and stuffed behind new product packages. So, I've set myself a mission to finish them off or at least get them to the point where they're ready to add photos and journaling to. 

This little Family mini album has been lurking around for a fair while...okay, forever.....and I've now finished it ready to add pics. I feel somewhat euphoric!



I just needed to decorate the front and add my tags to finish this album...so why didn't I? I think it was one of those test projects where I was checking if a page worked, or it may have been a very early Bind-it-all effort. Anyway, as it was such an old project it seemed appropriate to use old product to finish it off.

The frame and Family chipboard are from a kit that I got one Christmas. I know it was from Costco and an absolute bargain as I went and bought another. I created a word cloud for the frame using my iPad app Wordpack and added one of my recent bargain flourishes chopped around a little for a bit of bling. The old ribbon stock came in for a bit of a bash too, with lots of pieces added to the binding. 

Now I challenge you to dig up those unfinished projects and complete at least one. Post a comment admitting to your oldest unfinished project.....just to make me feel better......and a link to the newly completed would be great too. 

Happy Scrapping.

Sketchy Sunday no. 76

A week passed and so we're ready for another dose of sketchy inspiration and here it is sketch no. 76.


This sketch is a great fit for those fun days out or family gatherings, as we all know there's always more than one photo we love on those occasions. On this design I really like those little folded back corners with embellishments tucked in, it just adds that extra interest point on a layout. 

Hope this one fits the bill for your latest creation.

Now for a quick peak into my 365 Project for last week. I was lucky enough to be invited to high tea ....I know very posh .....at The Covent Garden Hotel by some friends visiting from the U.S. Of course we snapped a quick pic before diving into our beautifully presented Gentleman's Teas...don't worry I did check it was ok for ladies too....and it was delicious. I highly recommend a visit if you're in London for a special occasion, but you may have to empty the piggy bank first!



Happy Scrapping.
