Once more into the fray dear friends!!!!

Hello everyone and how are you all today???

Well I can tell you it has certainly felt like I have been in the fray today, waging war on that messy craft room of mine!  Today I have attacked my decoupage and papers.  I think I must have culled atleast half of it and those items leaving my posession are currently stacked up on my dining table, completely smothering it!!!!!

I'm going to don my battle armour again in a few minutes but I thought I would take a breather for five mins with some coffee and share another one of yesterday's projects with you.

This card focuses on the new Papermania Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection with a little Vintage Notes thrown in for good measure.

One of my favourite products this time round in the Patterned Craft tape - it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO trendy at the moment and something I love is that it is repositionable!  Oh my goodness that helps out when like me you can't get things on straight first time round!!!! Here I have layered the three designs on top of them to the left of the focal point flower.

Another favourite is the Vintage Notes Rub Ons... there are tonnes of letters in the pack in a fabulous selection of different colours and fonts - perfect for mix and match!  Infact they look best when jumbled up together...  And I can hand on heart say I haven't yet used a range that I don't like them with.  They are so much more than Vintage Notes and seriously versatile!!!  Love versatility in my craft stash - I get so much more value for money then!


I thought I'd pass on a little tip for when creating a really layered design like this, to prevent you forgetting how you wanted to place things!  Build everything up without sticking down until you are happy with your placement and then grab your phone or digital camera and take a quick snap - use this to help you reconstruct the design and then you can just delete the image when finished!  You'll see me do this quite a lot at my demos!!!

Anyway, take care everyone! I'll chat to you again tomorrow!
