Final layouts from GoGo Getaway

Hi! Good to see you again! Today I’m showing you the final layouts from the GoGo Getaway in October.

These layouts were designed by Ashley Horton from The Cut Shoppe, and we used a Pretty Little Studio Collection.


I love the flower cut file on this layout and the fussy cut flowers.  The border around the outside are strips of the Pretty Little Studio papers.


I loved using the squares on this layout, and I’ve used this technique on subsequent layouts.

All of the classes taught at GoGo Getaway were amazing, and I honestly can’t choose my favourites, I love them all.

Craftaholics R Us Design Team - Anything goes

Hey there, thanks for stopping by!! Today I’m showcasing my latest Craftaholics R Us Design Team project.  The theme is anything goes, and this is my contribution.


Emily is 11 on 17 January and she’s having a few school friends around for a sleepover, and this is what I made for Emily to hand out!

They were fiddly to make, but I love them!!

A mixed media layout

Hi there!!  Today I’m showing an unusual layout using Artist Inks.  I’d never thought to use these at all, let alone on a layout.


This layout was taught by Keiri, and I loved it!!  We pained the background with Silver, Pink and Green Metallic Artist Inks, and then we but out some of the segments.  Love the effect of this layout, and I’ve still got some of the Inks left!

The Punk Planner inserts


Hey there, good to see you again! Today I’m showcasing my planner inserts!

I order all of my Travellers Notebooks inserts from The Punk Planner with marble white covers, which I love, as this means that I can decorate them in true scrapbooking style!



This is a batch of my recent covers that I decorated. Your planner doesn’t have to be boring, and these colourful covers always make me smile.

Kim does offer custom inserts where you can have a picture made into a cover, so I need to try that. It’s a really good way to keep your family close!

Are you a planner person??  Fancy a discount?  Use the website and code below!




Another Layout from October’s GoGo Getaway

Hey there, thanks for stopping by!!  Well I’ve been back in work 2 days and I’m ready for more holiday!!  December and January are always busy months for me!

I thought I would show you the official GoGo Getaway layout from the weekend today.


We were given an exclusive Bramble Fox GoGo Perspextive and the Die Cut arrow, which is backed with Starlight paint.

I love that GoGo always provide an exclusive layout, and it’s always so much fun having the photo taken.

Craftaholics R Us DT - Celebration Cards

Hey there, good to see you! I hope you’ve recovered from the new year! I’m lucky enough to have another couple of days off, so I’m not back to work until Thursday.

My DT post today is celebration cards, which is appropriate as we’ve just started a new year!!  Here is my contribution.



I love this stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It makes celebration cards so easy to make!  This is also one of my favourite colour combinations.

Head over to the Craftaholics R Us website to see more craft items from the rest of the DT! See you soon!

CALLING ALL PLANNER PEOPLE!!!!

HAPPY BEW YEAR!!!  I hope you had a great time celebrating! We had a day out in York yesterday, then saw the New a year in at home. A few Honey Gins may have been consumed and some cakes from Betty’s.

About 18 months ago, I got into planning. Not only is this another crafty outlet for me, planning also keeps my life sane most of the time.

In 2018, I’m going to show more of my planning pages, my hints and tips, what I have in my planner etc.

I’ve teamed up with the lovely Kim and Sarah at The Punk Planner and I’m able to offer any planning people out there a discount on supplies. Head to the website, details below, enter my code, and you’ll receive your discount!  Simple as that.



You can use this code as many times as you like, and there is no expiry date on it!!! 

There are some gorgeous supplies on the website, and more are added regularly.  I only use Kim’s inserts in my Travellers Notebooks, and they are great!  I can highly recommend!

Enjoy the rest of your New Years Day, and I’ll see you soon!
