Font of the Week

Time for a pretty, scripty one - Bolina .   Not the best choice for cutting, lots of super thin bits, but it would look lovely printed and embossed or glittered.  Wedding invites maybe?

Happy Scrapping 2015!

The image above is a bit of a trick - it isn't all the same version of  Jaapokki  - there is a version called Enhance (with some added lines) and one called Subtract (like the R, A, and E you see) that removes a line, and the standard version.  Upper and lower, numbers included, and something a little bit different.

Simple Recipes: Mood Board (March 2015)

This month spring has definitely sprung and we have lots of floral inspiration. There's a couple of really simple techniques, (don't forget to check out the interactive images to go to the tutorials) including mini tassel making and a really cute felt four leaf clover embellishment idea. There's also a link to a printable quote which you could incorporate into a home décor project or maybe have a go at making it into a custom Project Life card?

As usual the worksheet contains sketches for a layout, card, art journal and planner divider page so you can use any one of those if you want to.

Take as much or as little from the worksheet as you like. Don't forget to share what your inspiration was when you upload your finished project/s.

sutty_198_x_200_ Layouts: An adorable page bysutty to kick us off this month, I just  the houses for the background; and here's an equally adorable page byScribbleMonster. Next we visit Jakesmum who has joined in the UKS Stash Busting challenge with a super page. I couldn't help but smile at sponsor Scrappyjen's description of her 'four unashamedly fussy, layered, bright, in your face, chuck it all on the page layouts' My March sketch challenge is here MiniOwner.
 Cards: Male cards are not the easiest so I was pleased to find this one by Krafty Karen; have a look around while you are there - Karen has some of the cutest Christmas cards, too. A fine example of 'if at first you don't succeed' by Misteejay whose third attempt at a birthday card for her mum is just beautiful - I am very into owls at the moment. How lovely to find a Valentine's card that isn't pink and mushy; this one by CoventryAnn is just the ticket. And, if you need cheering up at this dreary time of year, Mystic Nat has a gorgeous bright and summery card to share.

lemonblossom_203_x_95_Other projects: I'd have loved to be in the swap that got lemonblossom's ATCs!Soojay shows us the versatility of a large woodgrain stamp and if you have a poke around you'll find some fabulous cards there too. Don't miss Misteejay's 'snap, crackle & pop' technique boxes. If you've a mind to make a Memory Album you will undoubtedly be inspired by katalytic who has combined her love of creative writing with her love of scrapbooking. I love this tag by jazz27 but don't go there if you are arachnophobic  Oh and there's still time to join the Blue Brads' winter photo scavenger hunt; Susibee has a few photos here to share - including an amazing cobweb! Finally, for the pure joy of reading a beautifully written blog have a browse of ScribbleMonster's writings.
Thanks once again to MiniOwner for her help with BlogBits!
