A few tags…


What glorious sunshine today.

I made these over the weekend and am linking these up before the challenges close then I am off to enjoy some sun with my latest book club book and my newest knitting project. Ms 15 & Ms 10 are occupying themselves singing while Mr 17 is at school for practice exams and Ms 19 is at uni.

My tag

mft contempory roses (478x640)

I stamped MFT Contemporary Roses stamp set with SU Pink Pirouette and pretty in pink ink.  The leaves are coloured with SU certainly celery marker before stamping. I created the tag with a tag punch and finished with some twine.  Not sure if I will use it as a tag or will add it to a card front later.

uniko flower power #5 & #6 (401x640)

For this tag I used images from Uniko Flower Power #5 (sentiment), #6 and Background builders vines stamped and inked with SU Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist & wild wasabi ink/markers. Again I created the tag with a tag punch. This time I added a second tag at the back from Uniko Digital paper. Again finished with some twine.

I also have a card to share I have made for a friend’s birthday using Art Impressions Girlfriends stamp coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut out and layered onto uniko digital paper.

Uniko Studio Challenge #9…


Uniko Studio Challenge #9


This is the current challenge at Uniko.

I am linking up this card


I started by stamping the leaves and stem outline from Uniko flower power #3 in SU wild wasabi I then stamped the image from Uniko flower power #4 in SU Certainly Celery onto SU Whisper White CS. The flower is from Flower Power #3 – Outline stamped in SU Crushed curry and solid image in SU So Saffron. I then die cut 5 PTI birthday words in SU whisper white and once in SU So saffron cs and layered to form the dimensional word “birthday”. I have seen this done a few times and thought I would get really sticky (one of the reasons I hadn’t given it  go!) I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t any sticker than normal cardmaking and it all came together rather quickly excluding drying time. Not sure if that means I am overly messy or this technique isn’t as messy as I thought it would be. I stamped the word Happy in SU So Saffron from PTI Polka Dot Parage #5.  I mounted my card front with borders of SU So Saffron, SU Smoky slate and a small piece of Uniko Studio Digital paper. All this was then added to a Kaisercraft card base and a Kaisercraft pearl added to the top of the “i” in birthday.

Here is another pic


I was busy last weekend putting together my very first digital album. I used SU MDS software and digital papers to put together an album for my Gran. She is now in a home and she can’t have her digital photo frame with all her pics. So I put a  few picsI have of her parents/siblings, when Gran was young, her children when they were young and my children together. I used various layouts and didn’t embellish the pages much as the layouts I chose were pretty pic heavy.

Here are a couple of pics

photo 1

The cover of the album has a photo insert which you can attach so I made up a print which has my Gran’s name (so the album doesn’t get lost!) and added this butterfly. I used a Martha Stewart silicone mold and SU clay coloured when dry with markers attached with glossy accents.

This page shows my mum and her siblings as they were growing up. As I said very simple layouts.

I am still reading Drums of Autumn – I am ploughing on. 800 pages is a lot. This is part of the Outlander series and I have more books to go.

Now must go see how my friend’s dog is – we had a little run in with another friend’s dog on our walk this morning. Friend 1 had to take her dog to the vet.

Happy reading and crafting 🙂



 Just a little update.

My friend’s dog had to have a couple of staples and is home with his human mum.
