Windows & Doors Tags

 Hello! Thanks for popping in.

I've been playing with the new Doors & Windows CardStack from ArtStacks. I love it! I made these tags.

I used a similar colour background on all three tags and added stencilling, stamping and stitching. I also added a few tissue flowers from the Anemones & Friends CardStack. All of these added extra detail to the background paper. On top of that I layered contrasting coloured paper. My featured doors and windows were torn from a page from the Doors & Windows CardStack. All my quotes came from the same stack too.

I love the quotes - and I love that they're all so accessible in the same stack!

Oh - and don't forget there's a challenge running over at ArtStacks too. Pop over to their facebook page to check it out :)

Happy scrappin'!

Faces at More Than Words and Kraft Plus!

Wow - have you heard about the joint challenge between Kraft plus and More Than Words? Both challenge sites are running the same challenge and you can enter both challenges with the one project. The challenge is to be inspired by FACES and, of course, to use kraft as a feature.

The word FACES made me think of the different faces that we wear during our lives. This led to think about the different 'hats' we wear.

I seem to be switching from one hat to another a lot lately and sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming. I feel like it's a mystery which hat I'm going to be wearing from one hour to the next.

With this in mind I made a tongue-in-cheek board game - spin the spinner and see which hat to wear next!

This was a great way to use up paper scraps and leftover alphas. I printed an assortment of hats and typed the names of some of the 'hats' I wear on them. The spinner is an arrow and the face is one from ArtStacks. You can find it here.

You can find the More Than Words challenge here.......

.... and the Kraft + challenge here.

I hope we see you at both challenges soon!

Happy scrappin'!

An ArtStacks Card for More Than Words

Hello! The new Mini Challenge at More Than Words this month is to use the word IDEAL on your card, tag, ATC or postcard.

We've just released our first ever CardStacks at ArtStacks and, as I was in a hurry to get this card made, I quickly cut a rectangle around one of the featured images to suit the size of my card blank, punched a border then mounted it on coloured paper. I added a sentiment from the CardStacks pack and mounted it onto a card blank and my card was done!

This bunch of flowers is from the Anemones & Friends CardStack. You can find it here.

I hope you can join us at More Than Words this month. You only have until the end of April so be quick! You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin!

Live Colourfully at Kraft Plus

Hello! The challenge over at Kraft + this month is to be inspired by symmetry! Wow - that's so different!

I decided to create a symmetrical shaped background on my layout.

I love red and white on kraft so I used the poppy paper from ArtStacks' Anemones & Friends stack which was perfect for this. I layered it up with torn cardboard and other elements. The stars are from an old Christmas card!

I hope you can join us this month. You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin!

There's a surprise touch inside the box! To see how I did this, head to the ArtStacks YouTube channel here.

Happy craftin'!

Seize the Day!

Can you guess what the Mini Challenge word is at More Than Words this month? If you saw the Main Challenge word, Carpe Diem, you might guess. Yes, it's SEIZE!

I made an ATC:

The eyes are from the Faces & Figures stack from ArtStacks. Aren't they striking? They're on tissue and the tissue just disappears into your project when it's glued on. 

The flowers are also on tissue, this time from the Anemones & Friends stack.

I hope you can join in the challenge this month. You can find it here. :)

Happy scrappin!
