Then and now over at Squirrel's Random Challenge.

For the next couple of months over at Squirrel's Random Challenge we are looking at how our crafty style has changed over the years by comparing a card we  made eons ago to one we just made - does that make sense??? Apologies, a string of bad nights with a poorly child has destroyed my brain!!!

So, I've used the lovely Pom Pom fairy from LOTV.
Love these Maja design papers :-) My style hasn't changed that much. I perhaps use less embellies now but that's because I have much less time for crafting :-( Given half a chance I love to plaster my cards with every embellie going!!!
And this is the card I made in 2012:
So that's me! Hope you get a chance to join us - how much fun is this challenge?

Holiday Cheer!

This is a box I made using the Crafter's Companion Advanced Projects DVD and their new Colorista Holiday USB. The USB is absolutely packed with images and cards to colour :-)

I coloured with the Colorista markers - it sure turned into a lengthy labour of love!!

That's me for today! Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Jayne xx

Christmas at Crafty Ribbons.

This week's challenge over at Crafty Ribbons is Christmas (with ribbon or lace). I finally got around to colouring this stunning image from Lili of the Valley. Oooh, she's my favourite (well, she is today!).
I used some papers I got from a magazine ages ago and the lovely Joy Crafts snowflake.
I used the beautiful organza Swiss Dot ribbon in tulip/white from Crafty Ribbons.

There is some beautiful ribbon up for grabs for the winner so I hope you get the chance to join us. Hugs, Jayne xx

Back to being happy :-)

After a stressful few days I'm back to feeling sane!!! I had a fabulous class on Sunday with a group of fantastic ladies and it reminded me of everything I love about crafting and why I started running the classes. Sometimes you just need a reminder!

This is another Hochanda sample using the Illustrator pens. Not my usual thing but I don't hate it!!

Hugs, Jayne xx

Butterfly Wishes

This was one of my samples for the new Spectrum Noir launch. I used the VBs and the DPs from the Vintage set which is absolutely my favourite.
I have crafty work up to my eyes at the moment and I'm getting nothing else done. Problem is, when you craft all the time you sometimes lose sight of why you loved crafting in the first place!!

Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Jayne x

Lili of the Valley Colour Challenge

Over at Lili of the Valley Facebook challenge we have a colour palette themed challenge. You still have two days to enter it here.

I just went with the re part of the palette using the LOTV 1920s Christmas image (which you can find here.)

This stamp is a recent impulse purchase! I think she was an excellent choice!!
Best go - I am knee deep in Crafter's Companion colouring!!

Thank you for stopping by, Jayne xx

New Spectrum Noirs :-)

I made this with the two new sets of Spectrum Noir pens :-) Both sets are beautiful although if I had to pick a favourite it would be the Vintage colours - super lush :-)
This Lili of the Valley stamp is such an old favourite!
There are some beautiful soft brown in the collection.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend xx
