Birthday Wishes

Moooorning peoples! :) 

Time for some inspiration for My Mum's Craft Shop.

Apologies for the quality of the photo, I took it on my phone and it's a little grainy.

I used a combo of Altenew and WPlus9.

WPlus9 - Happy Trio Dies

I had a blast stamping these pretty flowers out! I really need to get some new ink colours to try some new combos, but for now, I really love those orange flowers! 

I die cut a happy from the cardstock I had stamped with the flowers and layered it up to create a 3D effect. I then stamped birthday wishes from the coordinating stamp set from WPlus9 to finish up the card. I hope you likey! :) xx

Good morning guys! :) Thank you for stopping by today.

I have a cute little Tiddly Inks creation to share with you all for the new challenge over at

The wonderful Lisa wants to see us making tags, or using tags on our projects this week! Easy, peasy right?! No excuse not to join in.. ;)

This week, we're being sponsored by Polkadoodles, and one lucky winner will recieve TWO digi images!! Need any more reasons to join? How's about some inspiration..

I used the gorgeous Purfect Birthday Wryn! I adore this little character, and now even more so, what with her being paired with a little cat hat and balloon!! PURFECT indeed!!

I coloured her up using my beloved pens, and paired her with some papers from My Minds Eye. I die cut a MFT tag, along with some cardstock layers and smooshed it all together. For embellishment I tied a tiny little pink organza bow and put together a little vellum flower, before going all out with rhinestones, liquid pearls and stickles. Job done.

Be sure to head over to the blog for more inspiration and to join in with this weeks challenge! xo

Polly's Pals

Another Monday rolling in! I can't even believe we're in April!! A quarter of the way through the year already. Madness!!

The good news is, I have the week off work. The bad news is, I'll be spending most of my time at the boat. Some of you who know me will know me and the boy have taken a ridiculously large restoration job on and.. quite frankly.. I just wish I would finish itself.


I'm here to share some inspiration with you all using products available at 

 I have used the gorgeous little girlie from The Hobby House toppers set - Polly's Pals.

I created a Christening card with her.

I added the personalised details using a Lawn Fawn alpha stamp set. I went a little OTT with embellishments, adding buttons, crochet flowers, vellum flowers and both half pearls and liquid pearls. Love how it turned out though. The unusual colour combo is taken from the topper itself - I love how it works.

That's all from me for today. Please be sure to stop by the BLOG for daily inspiration. xo

Betty Rose

Good afternoon guys! Apologies for the lateness of my post.

I was at work, at stock take, at hell on earth last night. I didn't get in till late and all I wanted to do was eat and sleep! ..but I'm back in the room.

It's Tuesday, and that can only mean one thing! A new challenge over at 

Our lovely Julie has set us a challenge of


Julie would love to see you use shades of blue on your project! Be sure to head over to the blog to make sure you're adhering to the requirements.

Here's my take on the challenge. 

I used the GORGEOUS Betty Rose from Simply Betty Stamps. I am soooo late to the party with these stamps. Each one I colour up, I'm like.. where have these been all my life? They're beauties! 

I need a lot more practice with hair, but other than that I am over the moon with how this beauty turned out! I used a mixture of blues and greys to colour up her rose dress. I went a little OTT with the paper flowers and liquid pearls, but I think I still like how it turned out! 

Up for grabs for one lucky winner is is a beautiful stamp set called Changing Birdhouse from Little Claire Designs
