yes, yes…i know! Babies on the brain! But seriously, i really cant help it…it must be hormones or something. Or perhaps its the ‘nesting’ phase that peeople keep talking about!
Today I have another project to share which is a perfect little baby gift. Zoe and Chris blessed their family with another little angel back in November and I was dying to make a little something for him. Finally my paper and embellishment stash made it out of a cardboard box, and I was able to play for a while.
I’ve used a mixture of embellishments including flowers, brads, buttons, ribbon, grommits, felt, bisous chipboard, and of course my favourite metal charm from Mei Flower that is a love heart etched with ‘made with love’. I love ‘em! AND you can get 10 for £1 or 50 for £3 on their online shop – check ‘em out at www.meiflower.co.uk. The cute little gingham bow is from them too!
This is a really fun project, and is perfect for using up some scraps. I used some circle punches to create six little bubbles and I also got to use one of my most recent purchases which I have been really excited about. This cool little punch from EK success punches out little dots to make a circle shape- i think its a really cool way to draw the eye to something.
Thanks for stopping by.
I also had my baby shower yesterday, so i’ll be sharing some photos on here as soon as I get a chance to load them off my camera. xox
My, my…we are certainly fast approaching the end of January! I can’t believe I only have another 3 weeks of work and then 3 weeks until i reach the big Four-Zero weeks! Geez, this lil’ baby could arrive any time i guess!
I was so excited to get into the craft room for a little bit this weekend, and I made a few cards to share with you all. I was feeling in the mood for a Valentine’s card, because I go on Maternity leave on 14th Feb, so that date is on my mind just now.
I wanted to use a less traditional colour scheme – so I used blues, browns and reds, and manged to find a cute chipboard heart from Bisous in my stash – what a perfect finishing touch!
I hope you find a little love today.

Only a few more days until it’s December!! eeeeeek! I’m so excited.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with Ali Edward‘s annual Christmas feature called December Daily, where she makes a mini book which documents the last month of the year and captures memories of this magical time. Last year I decided to join in the fun, and I embarked upon the wondrous adventure of making my own December Daily album.
I have to say that it wasn’t all easy; some days it was a struggle, after all this month is usually jam packed on the calendar. But on the most part, I found that project was fantastic. I decided to make a mini book which had lots of character, so lots of my pages are different sizes, and I was so thrilled with the end result.
With being pregnant plus buying a house, packing and moving all within the next week or so, I haven’t had a chance to prepare for a December Daily album this year, but I’m thinking that I will still journal the days and maybe I’ll revisit the idea when we are in the new house.
So I thought you might like to see the finished album from last year, and if you are going to take part in this years December Daily project, maybe you will get a few ideas for your own mini book. Enjoy the video!
See larger image Hey everyone. August seems to be flying by fast, and it will soon be my birthday again! So, I thought I would share with you a layout which i made a couple of months ago but haven’t had a chance to show you yet. i’ve been cooped up this week, hiding beneath […]
