Pumpkin Spice


Ink N Splatter have just release their September released
These gorgeous little gnomes are gnome for the Thanksgiving holidays.  
My project I hope reflects this.  
and matching papers for the season

I rolled a bunch of serviettes (might be napkins in your part of the world) and used the pattern paper as a belly band around them all.  Then I coloured up the image, hand cut them out and adhered it to the front of the belly band.  I nice little addition to any table setting.  

We here is Australia do not celebrate Thanksgiving and we are coming into Spring quite nicely.  This will be used at out next BBQ.  Great way to make our craft supplies stretch into everyday events.  

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you liked my project.  

Happy crafting!

Little Boy Boo's


Gee that week went quick!  I am back sharing another project for 

I am playing with 
Little Boy Boos stamp set

I just love this months papers so much.  These ones are from 

I decorated a little caldron I have had for years.  Could be used for trick or treating but our kids are too old for that.  So it sits in my craft room so I decorated it.  I put a belly band all the way around with matching papers too.  
And isn't the little Frankie just the cutest!  I coloured him in traditional halloween colours.  Love the combinations.  Threw in a spooky tree that is highlighted by that beautiful starry paper behind it and a few cobwebs.  
Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to check out all the other great inspiration from the DT on the Facebook page.  
Happy crafting!

I am finally back playing along with our 
Sketch Saturday challenge!

This challenge we also have a twist use Red, Yellow and Blue as your Colours

I gave the optional twist a go this time around too.  

When I have been creating cards not for a Design Team project I have been going through my stash to revisit or use for the first time, sets that just waiting to be used.  This one is an oldy but a goodie.  
Building Blocks from Kindred Stamps
The colour theme really plays well with this set. Just the right project for any lego fan.  
Don't forget to play along with us.
Happy crafting!

Gnome Magic


More Halloween inspiration coming your way.  
release is awesome for this.  
As an Aussie, Halloween is becoming more and more popular.  
We live out of town so we do not get any trick or treaters.  But that does not stop me from playing with these cute images.  And I have to say, I am loving the colour combo's from the paper pack 
Purples and greens.

The sentiment is not from this set.  It is one from my stash that I thought would suit this magical gnome, who is from the stamp set 
I reckon he could even be the gnome version of  Dumbledore!  Not exactly him, but close enough.  
I added the bright green border around the sentiment to match the green in the pattern paper.  Threw on some cobwebs and gems and you have yourself magical goodness.  
Thank you for popping by and I hope all you US crafters enjoy your spooky night!
Happy crafting!

Gone Batty!


Back again with this months new release from

This week I had the chance to play with Little Boys Boos Halloween :stamp set. 

If you cannot tell, I really loved this page from the Paper pack

I started with the black cardstock for the base.  Then a layer of white to lighten the card a little.  Then I trimmed the paper to fit.  
Coloured up a trio of Bats.  These I popped using foam mounts.  Don't you just love their little faces? 
I do!
Cut out the "BOO"  and gave them some evil eyes to finish off.  The perfect addition to add a little more spook!
Thank you for popping in and don't forget to join us over in the FB Community for more inspiration.  
Happy crafting!

Halloween Gnomes


Whoohoo!  New release time for 

Halloween is the theme.  We are getting in early (doesn't hurt). 

I am sharing a little bit of a decor project. 

Halloween Gnomes Stamp set
 is what I have used on this cute little decoration.  I have used 2 of the 3 gnomes.  The pumpkin is from a set I already had in my stash.  
I kept the colour scheme the same as the picture inside the frame.  This is from the Paper Pack 
I am in love with this pack.  There is even a purple hued image, same as above.  I love how there is a scene in this set.  You can make your own little spooky tale if you wanted to.  
I used an old Memory Box Spiderweb die for the edges.  I thought about going with a black frame but then the spiderwebs would never have shown.  I could have gone white with them I guess but I like the white frame.  Keeps it fun with the gnomes.

Blue Birthday Kitties


Hi again!  I thought this week I would play along with the FB colour challenge 
has going on this month. 
So I got out my paper pack and had a flick through.  Picked out 2 different patterns.  Now I layered one on top of the other.  Very unusual for me.  I do struggle to use more than one pattern paper on a project so this is good practice for me.  

Added a bit of bling with the silver glittered balloons.  I omitted using gems/sequins for this one.  Kept it very simple.  
The stamp set used was
and the paper pack was 

The sentiment is also from this set.  I stamped it in blue to match and fussy cut around it and popped it center to the image.  
Thank you for popping in and have a gander at my project.  
Happy crafting!
