So I made this little wall hanging using some of my DT pack from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE.
This was actually an old place mat you know the MDF sort with the cork on the back.
I love turning these things into plaques.
Lots of cutting and machine stitching on this one to try to replicate a patch work effect.
All Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers and pearls and droplets are available from
I know Ive said it 100 times before but I love these droplets/pearls they are really inexpensive and you can use them to make your own flourishes like Ive done here.
I still have more Circa 1934 to play with and even thought it was included in 2 of my DT packs this month Im still not sick of it yet. Actually I bought myself some more yesterday. Yep Im hooked. I LOVE this range.
Ill be back on the 1st of March with the next WHITE WITH 1 reveal.
As always Thanks for all your lovely comments, they make my day. TFL.

Handmade by Suzanne.

Heres a few LOs created with my DT pack from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE this month. I was lucky enough to receive the beautiful Circa 1934 range from Cosmo Cricket.
These 2 LOs are fairly simple as I found that these papers were great for masculine LOs so I didnt want to fuss it up too much.

Heres a close up of the wooden flourish by Kaiser Craft (available from Handmade by Suzanne) Ive just added some black  and red pearls and coloured part of it with my sharpie pen.

Im not sure how well it shows up in the photo but the card stock on this one is a glitter cardstock by American crafts more Circa 1934 and some Jenni Bowlin alphas all available from

I loved cutting up these papers to make my own layerd flowers, so much fun and great to add some dimention. Just add some Kindy Glitzs Pearls from Handmade by Suzanne and there you have it.
Before I go I just wanted to let you know about the fantastic sale on at HANDMADE BY SUZANNE.
Its stock take time and
Suzanne has reduced the prices to 30-40% off alot of her awesome stock
and her postage charges are some of the cheapest on the web so nows the time to go shop! TFL.

I was asked to be a Guest DTer for February over at MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK.

This kit is jam packed with beautiful bits and pieces. Every thing you see on these pages are included in the kit.

 Yep OK so the paint and the circles are back. I think its becoming a trademark. LOL.
Just cant escape them.
This is my beautiful Mum with me.

Now how could I do a girly page with out the girliest and prettiest Little lady I know. My beautiful Niece Shayla.
Here's the sketch I designed using Ivy's LO as inspiration.

and here the STUNNING kit in its entirety and the LINK.
MY SCRAPBOOK CREATIONS ship internationally too so YAY!!

I was also sent this beautiful  previous limited edition kit as a thank you for designing some exclusive sketches. How lucky am I.
So Im sure you will see lots of LOs to come using all these delicious goodies.
I hope you'll find some time to stop on in at MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK and take a look at their gorgeous kits and all the beautiful LOs created by their talented Design Team.

White with 1 for February

I love the start of a brand new month because it means great fresh new challenges.
This is my CT layout for White with 1 for Feb.
The criteria this month is white, brown and vintage.
This is about as vintage as I get, lots of vintage bits and pieces thrown on here just for good measure.
This palette is really easy and fun to work with and the bonus of such a neutral palette is that it should compliment just about any colour photo you want to use.
Ive had a bit of fun altering these photos of Master J just to give them more of that vintage feel.
I hope you will join in the challenge at WW1 this month there are great prizes up for grabs again and the CT has some beautiful examples to share HERE.

There havent been a lot of close ups recently so Im going to remedy that now.

OK thanks for stopping by and thanks everyone for leaving me some love on my exciting news.
I do have more exciting news to share later but it will have to wait for a few more days yet.
OK im off to design about a gazillion sketches now. TFL.
