Vintage Artistry Double Layout

Hi Lovelies, What says Spring more than loads of beautiful butterflies, adorable little birds and wispy ferns?  Not much I don't think.

These beautiful images come from Helen's Double Layout Class featuring 'Vintage Artistry' by 49 and Market.
The collection is just stunning and Helen has truly done it justice by turning it into a wonderful double page creation!

Helen used a lovely chipboard sentiment from Celebr8's collection 'Good Vibes'.
A finishing touch of Glossy Accents was added to the chipboard and fussy-cut butterflies.

This style of layout is the perfect way to use up all your left over pieces of paper, ribbon cut-offs and anything else you could think of! Sounds great to me!

Helen created this adorable pocket from some of the Vintage Artistry embellishments. It could be used purely for decorative purposes or the perfect little place to store keepsakes and letters.

Go Press and Foil Fun

Hi lovelies,

Yesterday a couple of ladies joined me for a morning of playing with the Couture Creations Go Press and Foil Machine.

We had such a fun time, and ladies created some lovely samples.

Some we turned into card fronts

and some even got
turned into cards.

Everything was going along just fine.

Then we started foiling ribbon.
One of the ladies used the "Celebrate" Stamp
to create this.

We were all thought that the stamp was faulty.
We even went so far as to call
the lovely ladies at ArtDeco Creations
to ask if anyone else had experienced the same problem.
Then we found out that if you put it the correct way up
it is just perfect.

I often joke that we "Hill-folk" are a little different. 

We laughed and laughed.
Hope it made you smile.

Christmas Countdown

Hi Lovelies,
It's coming to that time of the year again where everything seems to turn red, green
and covered in glitter (not that there's anything wrong with that!).

However, things can get a little stressful,
so the wonderful Helen has designed this Mixed Media
Christmas Countdown to help you wind down and keep track of the days.

This 14 x 14" Countdown board features an interchangeable panel  which can be a fun weekly task for kids, or a simple reminder for how many  weeks there are left to plan the Christmas menu.

There are so many gorgeous little embellishments adorning the surrounding frame,
including vintage stamp cutouts, twine bows, shiny jingle bells,
 pine sprigs and straw stars.

What's Christmas without Nutcrackers?
Helen couldn't forget these tiny little men and these ones are just way too sweet.  

Some glittery Christmas sentiments are also nestled in among the pine sprigs.

This Christmas Countdown is a bundle of fun to create and can be kept for
