Crop in the Country 12 x 12 x 12 Layout - Frills and Spills

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! Another usual CITC layout on a Saturday. This gorgeous layout was designed by Denise.



The picture of my Niece, Taniele, in her wedding car was perfect for this layout, although peach wasn’t her colour scheme!



I’m quite strange and love fussy cutting, and I love the use of the fringe on the layout. My fringing scissors must come out more!

Until next week!

Craftaholics R Us Design Team - Girly

Hey there, good to see you! Today I’m showcasing another Design Team Layout for Craftaholics R Us. The theme this time is girly.



I decided to complete a layout of Emily using all soft, girly colours and the Bohemian Dream Collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio was perfect!

I also love the Bramble Fox Smile Perspextive I’ve used, as when added to a cardboard sticker, it makes the perfect title.

Starlight paint and a title

Hey there, good to see you again! Today I’m showcasing a layout with a new medium for me, Starlight Paint.  I’ve resisted up until now!



I’ve used my Silhouette to cut out the word grateful, and then I’ve painted it with Red Starlight Paint.  The paint is gorgeous and glittery, and I really didn’t use an awful lot.

You can buy the paints from Imagination Crafts for £4.50 a bottle, and they will last an age!

Crop in the Country 12 x 12 x 12 Layout

Hey there, thanks for stopping by!  Happy Saturday!!

I’m showing another CITC Layout today, and I have to say, I think that this was one of my favourites.

This layout was designed by Giselle of GoGo Getaway.



The circles were cut out using a template and then were fixed together using foam pads to give a 3D effect.



You can see the circles better here!

Until next Saturday!!

Tearing and sewing layout!

Hey good to see you again! I can’t believe it’s November already! I certainly don’t like the dark mornings.

I’m going to show you a summery layout that I’ve completed using a mood board from GoGo Getaway.  This was the mood board.


I took inspiration from the ice cream, the glasses, the shirt and the summer theme. Take a look at my layout,



Pictures of Jack having his one ice cream treat were perfect. I’ve also taken myself out of my comfort zone and I’ve torn the edges of my layers and the orange layer has been sewn!!

I made a card and a turkey treat box that makes me smile every time I look at it! I think he’s quite funky!!
