Happiness is a journey

Hi Everyone

Today's entry is way out of my comfort zone, although I have liked Steam punk art for a long time I have never made a card in this style. Whilst at my stamping group at Samuel Taylor's in Brighouse a friend saw the course advertised and told me as she new I wanted to try my hand at Steam punk   I am glad she did, as the class with Lindsay Mason was brilliant.  Here are the two cards that I made, hope you like them.  Would be nice to hear from you, please leave a comment.


The card was made with Graphic 45 papers and the image and sentiment are Lindsay's designs. The image was coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks.

This card is also made with Graphic 45 papers and the background layer is stamped with Lindsay's clock and broken heart stamps stamping inks and embellishments are from Ranger.

Christening Album

Today I would like to show you some of the pages I have made for my Grandaughter's Christening Photo Album. Papers used were Forever Friends, Kraft Notes and some from my stash and the buttons are Mixed Buttons from Range. I also used Spellbinder, XCut and Cuttlebug dies for the photo panels and lettering.

This is the front cover, the cake will be Owl themed so I thought it would be a good idea to have one on the front cover. 

This is the inside cover, I thought a place for notes would be ideal here, the love is from an XCut alphabet die.

This is the inside back cover, I have used spellbinders dies to create the mount for a photo and button embellishments, papers from my stash and the scalloped lining for the page is one of the original pages.

The background on this page is from the Forever Friends papers and the mount from my stash. Hugs and the flowers are from my Cuttlebug Alphabet.

Background from F Friends flowers and kisses, Cuttlebug dies.

All papers from my stash and mount cut with spellbinders dies.

F Friends papers and dies buttons and dies as stated previously.

Little Devil Giraffe

Hi Everyone

Today's post is a comical Giraffe, a digital image I found whilst browsing sites for something new. I liked him as soon as I spotted him, he's quite a character with his forked tail and funny face. He's coloured with Promarkers and the black and white hedge is something I found in a video on YouTube, sorry I've forgotten who's video it was, but it looks very effective don't you think?

He's quite something, hope you like. Please leave a comment.

Theatre Trip

Hi Everyone 
Had an outing to the theatre on Saturday evening with my Daughter and Granddaughter to see the musical Cats, it was a great evening. Here are photos of Maya before setting off to the show.
