One man's trash....

... Is another man's treasure! I was at a party a couple of weeks ago and rescued some 
embroidery hoops from certain 'compactment', lol.

Using the totally divine Glitz Design 77 (which is available in the Sassy Scrappers store now)
I'm popping these babies into the monthly challenge on the Glitz blog.
 The hoops have been given a beautiful splash of colour and shimmer with Color Shine 
(Navy, Gold Lamé & Georgia Peach.) Not too sure about the moving mountains bit, 
but this phrase is a personal reminder to myself that I need to get to bed earlier!! 
A subtle Finnley Giant Rhinestone embellie was perfect for this one.
The dot pattern is from the Carpe Diem collection. I've created some paper flowers to sit 
alongside some Manor House blooms and popped a couple of stickers on.
This one was subconsciously influenced by Game of Thrones, I'm sure!
If you fancy playing along, the challenge runs until April 30.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Heartfelt Words - JBS Digital Team

There are so many beautiful things out there to be inspired by. Quotes and phrases I see that tug at a heartstring or make me wanna jump up and do something positive. I've collected a few of these and popped them into a little mini so I can keep them close and add to it as I find new ones. My album is up on the Jenni Bowlin blog today, if you fancy a look inside...

I've used Jenni Bowlin Modern Mercantile and Watch Faces which are both on sale right now in the JBS Digital Shoppe (lots of exciting changes coming to this as well soon!!)

Thank you for stopping by!

Let's hear it for the boy - Jot magazine

Happy Sunday to you!

Have you heard that the stunning new Jot Magazine issue 5 is now live and chock full of inspiration!
I'm fortunate enough to have a couple of layouts in this one, including this ode to my DH, which
I created for the 'men' call with a song in my head.

The bright colours in the photo had me reaching for bold prints, (Glitz Design Finnley 'Bows').
The wording was cut using my Silhouette and then matted with more strong colours
(Glitz Wild & Free 'Hello Adventure')

The bright colours are echoed with rainbow machine stitching around the photo.
I've left a gap open where I've slipped my journalling inside.

I've created a kind of ombré effect inside the cut using a fine tipped coloured pen.

Head over for a peek with a cuppa and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Ditch the Floaties

This happened one magical night when I created three layouts. Unheard of in my camp really,
 but I was just on my own little mission, completely inspired (wish that kind of inspiration would
strike more regularly! ;)

It's predominantly Basic Grey yumminess with some Heidi Swapp touches...
A tale of my little fishy in a big pond without her floaties. A proud moment (and a layout I love to boot!)

The devil is certainly in the details in this one - heaps of tiny bits here and there, like this Greatest View flair,
those delicious BG Fresh Cut chippie alphas (a present from me to me, hehe.)

Some glittering pops with BG Capture metallic candy buttons and a couple
of the rain drops filled with Glossy Accents.

Heidi Swapp 'Hello Today' ephemera & glitter buzzwords
and Basic Grey 'Mint Julep' ephemera

A few items have been machine stitched for interest and I'm still crazy about making my own
epoxy stickers with my Epiphany tool.

Also a reminder on the March Moodboard at Sassy Scrappers.
We have some amazing entries already this month... why don't you pop over and have a go!

Thank you so much for popping in!
