Studio Calico - Central High Kit layouts x 2

Hi, hope everyone is having a smashingly good weekend :)  I am, I have been playing with my kiddies with their trainset and also doing a bit of crafting.  I have made 2 layouts today from my first SC kit, I am pretty impressed even though it isn't really colours or papers I would pick it has put me out of my comfort zone and I am really enjoying it.

Here is my first layout made with the SC Central High Kit, which has a photo of my boys watching the top dressing plane flying fert on next door, I like the background paper on this and I used papers from the 6x6 studio calico pad that came as part of the SC Central High Card Kit.  There are also items from the Capital avenue add on.


 The second layout has photos of my hubby's birthday cupcakes being consumed :0)  They certainly enjoyed them from what I can remember.


Thanks loads for coming by my blog and I would love to know what you think of my layouts.

Crawl Layout Revisited

Ok, so a couple of weeks ago over a Red Carpet Studio the challenge was to make a layout with NO WORDS, for my DT obligation I made a layout of Will and his first time crawling.  BUT everytime I went near his album it bugged the s#$t out of me that it had no title or date or anything, wah.   So I have had a remodel and I am now loads happier :)  So here is the new and improved version......


The papers are from Kaiser Craft, the cardstock is Bazzil, Thickers for the title, washi tape, flag from Basic Grey (I think?) star cut on my cricut using George & basic shapes and a spellbinders packet, flair button from Evalicious.

I am entering this layout in the Challenge Me Happy challenge - make your own embellishment.  I hope it counts as an entry as when I saw what their challenge was I made sure that the remodel had a DIY embellie, but if not nevermind :)

And there you have it, I am loads happier as I now feel like my layout is complete.

The Stamp Spot - Handy Little Clipboard


Hi, I am here today to share a practical and useful project with, plus it has The Stamp Spot September Challenge Spots.

This little clipboard has a magnetic back so it stays on the fridge and comes in handy for school notices, receipts etc.  This came as a pre-made project but you could easily make your own using chipboard, sticky magnetic sheets and a bulldog clip.


I decorated using patterned papers, stickers and some brads.  Thanks loads for having a look at my project and I hope you will give one of these a go for yourself, they are quick and easy to make and you will find lots of uses for one.

Hope you are having a great weekend :)



Have a great weekend :)
