Hello everyone,

I know its been a little while, sorry about that. Work + 3 year old = one tired mumma – not to mention that i have been suffering from a slipped disc for the last four months, which has severely limited my crafty mojo.

But heres the good news, i have had some spinal surgery and feel brilliant now! – obviously i am in recovery mode, but it does also mean that i have been more motivated to craft, and have some projects to share. We also had a little incident with the lights in the craft room which now has been resolved thanks to our good friends Mark and Helen who installed some new ones for me. And to mark the joyous occasion of me being back on my feet, standing and crafting in a well lit craft room, i wanted this card to be the first one i share – a Christmas card for Mark and Heli.

This is also the first card i have made with my new purchase – the Joy to the Woods stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I also bought the dies, and i am LOVING these little dudes. I think i want to buy matching dies for every stamp set from now on (but I’m not sure my bank balance would exactly reach to that!).

I also cracked out the video camera to share this card in a little video!

You can watch it here, or over on YouTube, and please give the video a Thumbs Up if you enjoy it, and hit subscribe for more videos – i hope to get back into the swing of recording videos for sharing.

have a great weekend,

Lesley

Washi Tape & Die Cuts – Technique Video Tutorial

by Lesley Oman on 1 February, 2014

Hello everyone,

I am sharing a video today and yes, I am very aware that this is a Christmas card, but guess what, thats just the way I roll sometimes!

:-)

This was my first video with my new camcorder and microphone, so hopefully I can make some adjustments over time to make sure the videos look their best! Any feedback is appreciated in the comments below.

This video may be to showcase a Christmas card, but the technique can be used for any kind of card, or even integrated into a scrapbook page. I hope you enjoy it.

‘Little Brown Mouse’ Scrapbook Layout

by Lesley Oman on 29 July, 2013

Hello Everyone

Oh looky here! A VIDEO! whoohoo! Its been ages since I last shared a video with you, lets hope I havent forgotten how to do it!

This is a walk through video, where I talk you through how I have built up this scrapbook page, walk you through some of the decisionsĀ I have made and give some tips – its always good to share tips, right?

Inspiration for this layout came in two forms, firstly POLAROIDS, hmm love ‘em right now and I was desperate to make some cut files for my silhouette.
And secondly – Jen Gallacher. {I have a not-so-secret scrap crush on this girl!!} I actually feel that her style can be similar to mine at times and she always inspires me. This time I was inspired by this awesome layout.

Jen Gallacher : Memories Made Video #12: Motherhood by the Numbers

You will see that I have taken inspiration from the pennants on the right hand side and also the little flourish of butterflies. Thanks Jen for another inspiring layout! Check our Jen’s Video here.

Enjoy the video and please do leave me a comment if you get a chance. [ Love getting comments- :-) ]
