And in full...

Here are the projects I gave you a sneak peek of and, if you were watching That's Crafty! on Hochanda  yesterday, you'll have seen them.
This first one uses some of Fliss's new stamps and the new MDF rounds:

The stamps fit the whiteboard side of the Fanciful Flowers Matches.

Next I used an 8x8 Chunky and several of the mediums (Crackle, Sand and 3D Gloss), also the lovely new grey and mint paint:

Oh, and don't forget the 8x8 stencils which fit this perfectly of course.

The last sneak peek was of a 9x4 Chunky which I made into a shadow box by leaving off the front and using some of the waste to make a frame:

The stamps are from Melina's Doodled Forest set.
So, you can see, there are so many great quality products in these shows and you can use them any way you like.

Thanks for looking!

Bright and breezy....

Here are some of the samples I made for Crafty Individuals on Hochanda last week:

These tags use some new background stamps that are coming out - they're great because they are a repeating pattern. Here's some close ups:

Two of them are negative images and the one in the middle is a small flower pattern. The pictures are from the glossy page sheets on the site.

Down in the cornfield...

These all use the same Crafty Individuals stamp, CI-489 Winter Walkies, but all use a different colour palette.
This was done on glossy card:

This one's on matte and layered onto some of the new A4 background paper:

And this sepia one is stamped with Distress Vintage Photo and lightly spritzed:

Art Journals...

I've been making some journals again, this time for my two girls.
I used some of their old baby/toddler dresses for the cover (forgot to take a pic of one of them!):

Used up papers for the insides and got a lot of graphics from The Graphics Fairy:

Seed packets at the back to put things in:

Library pockets at the front:

I have no idea what they're going to do with them (don't think they do either!) but I enjoyed making them!

Thanks for looking!

Drum roll please for Kay Carley's  new designs for PaperArtsy.
I was thrilled to be able to work with Kay's new products - A5 sets, Minis and stencils.
Here are a few sneak peeks of what I made:

To see the full reveal, head on over to the blog where there will be staggered posts:
