My Little Jelly Bean

by Lesley Oman on 10 October, 2010

Before I talk about todays project, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for being so patient whilst we have been fiddling with the website. It looks pretty different, and I really really hope you like it. I also wanted to give a shout out to my darling hubby, who has put A LOT of time and energy into Hungry Heffy Crafts lately, and has helped immensely in getting the site to its current state. I love you Bear! xo

Also a reminder that there are now ‘share this’ buttons at the bottom of all the posts, so if you see something that you like, please share it on facebook or twitter, or email it to a friend. You may have already noticed that we are also launching a newsletter, so go get yourself signed up so you can get a little bit of Hungry Heffy inspiration delivered straight to your inbox.

But lets talk scrapbooking! I am really excited to share this layout with you today. Another pegnancy layout, quel surprise! I may have to warn you that I will probably be doing quite a lot of these over the next few months!

Everyone loves jellybeans…right?

Well, I love mine a whole LOT, thats for sure! Although, admittedly, I think its no longer much of a jellybean. According to iPregnancy, my jellybean is now 14cm and already has fingerprints!!! :-D

For this layout I was feeling particularly inspired by Nichol Macgouirk, if you haven’t checked out her blog, jump on over and feel the wave of inspiration. I love her work.

I wanted to go for a clean and simple style, with bright jellybean-esque colours, and I love the end result.

Inspired by Dad Socks!

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday, and i have some good news to share – I’ve not been sick for over one week! Hurray! Baby is finally behaving itself. I hope it stays this way, because the better I feel, the more time I get to spend in the craft room. And the secret is….I even got the video camera out at the weekend, so watch this space! :0)

I treated myself to a few more Cuttlebug embossing folders for my birthday, one of which was this Argyll pattern folder that I had my eye on for quite some time. The Argyll pattern really reminds me of dad socks and old man jumpers, so it went without saying that I would want to reach for it when making some typical boy cards. This was my first crafty adventure using this product.

Really this card was an amalgamation of testing a new toy, and using up supplies in my scraps stash, and for that reason, i’m not sure what the stripy paper is, or who makes it, but I love the mixture of rustic browns, vintage scripts and a pop of bright red to add vibrant colour.

I hope you like it too.

Script rubber stamp
Distress ink – walnut strain, tea dye

I love digging into my scraps every so often and using them to make quick and fun cards. Its surprising how many different ways you can use little remnants of paper that would have probably gone into the bin if I didn’t religiously keep scraps.

Here’s two cards made from my stash this week.

House stamp – Unity stamps

As regards to the other products used…thats the only problem with using scraps, I hardly ever remember where the papers were originally from. Sorry.

Thanks for popping by.

Hey everyone.

I’ve had four days of illness, and I was only really able to get up and about yesterday evening. I was thankful that I was able to have the energy to make a Miss You Monday card for today. After all that time in a dark, germ-infested room, I wanted light and summery-ness. Well, I wasn’t going to get it outside, so I made my own little piece of happiness with this card.

Sometimes I just love Hero arts stamps so much that it hurts! I picked up this fab background stamp a little while ago, and I wanted to use it, but in a slightly different way – a background with a difference. Of course my distress inks were my first craft-comfort after a week of non-crafting, and I turned to my two favourite colours: shabby shutters and broken china. Yum yum.

I’ve been wanting chipboard flourishes lately, and as this was my last Bisous chipboard swirl, i really must buy some when I next see ones that I like.

Thanks for looking.
