A Little Something..

Morning guys! Seven months into 2014.. how do you feel about that? LOL! I know how I feel.. exhaused - it's zoomed by super fast! When I look back and think about everything that has happened so far this year, it's scary - it feels like everything has blurred into one! 

It won't be long until I force myself to start on some Christmas designs. To be honest, I don't know why I keep putting it off. I think it's mainly because I don't want to admit that it's actually going to be happening.. sooner than we think.

ONWARDS! Today marks the first of the month, which means we have a brand new challenge for ya over at My Mum's Craft Shop. This month we wanna see..


My Favorite Things - Wonky Scallop Border

All of the supplies listed above can be found over at My Mum's Craft Shop.

This is the first Stamping Bella stamp I have bought and coloured up.. why did I wait for so long?! I love this girl! ..and it's unusual to find stamps that are from the back - saves colouring up a face for a change, right? 

I stamped and embossed the sentiment that comes with the Stamping Bella image and added it to a die cut tag from MTF. I added a tonne of froo froo, including buttons from the £1 embellishment packs, Doodlebug sequins and a bunch of liquid pearls.

I tried something a little different with my bow. I used some waaay old ribbon that I've had since I started crafting (the colour matched perfectly, and it certainly is bright) and layered some bows up. I first created a bow with four loops and then a smaller bow with two loops, squidged them together and adhered them to the card with a ribbon across the knot. :) I kinda like how it looks, but I think I need some more practice on layering them.

That's all I got for ya today. Be sure to stop by the My Mum's Craft Shop blog to see what my awesome teamies have whipped up for the BRIGHT COLOURS challenge this month. xo
