Little Blue Button Stamps August new release


Hello crafty friends, I am here with the August new release for Little Blue Button Stamps.  Dont they just look delicious – donuts!!  Not only one of my favorite sweet treats, this is one of my fav digital stamps.

I created this pocket card that is 4×4 inches.  The card is from Stampin Up! and I just love that watercolour splashed background.  I have simply coloured the donuts with Zig Clean Colour real brush markers.  I add some Mod Podge dimensional magic to the ‘icing’ area to make it shine like real icing.

Kellie Stamps ‘Nuts About Food’ stamp set was just ideal for this card – the reference to donuts and all the feels that go with them was perfect!

For my project, I have created a recipe card that I can easily include in to my planner.  Scones is a recipe I have recently perfected (well….maybe not perfected but it’s pretty darn good as I am not a baker, cook or chef by any means!).  What a great way to capture the recipe and have it easily at hand next time I go to make them.

I often wish that that I had just one recipe of my grandmother’s with her hand writing on it, so I included my handwriting on the back side of this card.


Whilst I dont like my handwriting on projects, I braved this one to include it.

I inked the edges of the card using distress ink and added some patterned paper to the front.  The digital image ‘Charlie’ was coloured with coloured pencils and Stampin Up blendabilities markers. I also include a small photograph of my scones on the recipe card.

If you would like to purchase this fantastic digital set, you can do so at Just think of all the projects you could complete with the 14 designs and 41 digital images included!!! From building your own kitchen scene to simply printing out the recipe cards to document your favorite dishes….just awesome!  Janice at Scrappers Delights really has outdone herself this month!

Thanks for joining me and I cant wait to see your creations with this new release.

Shop and Crop July Moodboard Challenge & Dino Friends

Hello crafty friends, I am here today with two layouts for you on behalf of Shop and Crop Scrapbooking. The first one is inspired by the July moodboard challenge as pictured above – have you given it a go yet? I had this background that I had started some time ago (I like to use a piece of cardstock to swipe brushes of left over paint on to), so I just add to it with colours that matched the moodboard. Using a stencil and ink from my stash I added some interest to the background. I also used a stencil and texture paste to add some further dimension for the background. Lets take a look at the layout;


Whilst the background is quite busy, I like the grungy look of it – kind of messy like my son’s journey to find boxing – something he loves to do. The photo had a white border (also as per the moodboard) and matted with various patterned papers from my stash. The title – ‘Follow your Dreams. They know the way.’ was again inspired by the moodboard. The colourful letters used here were from the Echo Park Paper Co Dino Friends collection. This collection can be purchased in store

The second layout for today has been created using the collection mentioned above – the Dino Friends collection by Alisha Gordon, created by Echo Park Paper Co.


The double sided patterned papers in this collection were used for the layout base and matting for the photo. This photo is of my 3 year old son trying on a dinosaur dress up costume that his older brother once wore to kinder. It’s still a little big for him but nevertheless, he was still happy to pose for a quick pic. I used Dylusions paints in three shades of green to give some texture to the background, particularly around the photo area. I added some white gesso around the edges of the laout and some green punchinella under the photo mats and top corner embellishment to give some extra interest on the page.

The Dino Friends collection come with a fantastic array of cut apart cards and element stickers. There are brads (I havent used them for so long and it was fun to revisit them) and they are just the cutest with a lot of bling for the diverse range of layouts and card ideas you could create with this collection.

I hope you enjoyed these layouts and you will give the Shop and Crop Scrapbooking July moodboard challenge a go – there’s always great prizes to be won! All details can be found at the website Until next time….

For my planner layouts during July, I will be using patterned paper as the base. This layout uses the A5 vertical planner kit.

The Planner range can be viewed and purchased online at

Dylusions paint was added to the edge of the page for embellishing, along with some Pinkfresh Studio folied die cuts from the Live More collection. The glittery numbers and hearts were from a Heidi Swapp planner sticker pack.  I also like to add some photos to the page to personalise it.
