Colour Challenge – Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop Nov ’21…

The theme for this month’s hop is a colour challenge, and it’s a good one this month with a Monochrome theme of Basic Black, Basic Grey and Basic White. Personally I can’t wait to see what the other team members have got in store for us! The Peaceful Place Designer Series Papers immediately sprung to my mind when I saw this colour challenge, as they are filled with black, grey and white designs, and pairing them with the fabulous Arctic Bears stamp set has worked wonderfully I think. I must admit this might not at first seem like a project […]

How to scrapbook a single photo…

I wanted to make a gift for my Sister-in-Law recently, and decided to give her a piece of home-decor, so I set about thinking of how to scrapbook a single photo. When I scrapbook, I normally try to fit about three photos on a page, but here I wanted to showcase a beautiful photograph of her three girls, taken while they were out for a walk last year. It is so lovely to see them all smiling and laughing together. I started by choosing a colour scheme, and I knew I wanted greens to tie in the photograph and a […]

Bird Ballad Frame

I want to share something with you today that I made some time ago now, almost as soon as the last annual catalogue came out I think. The Bird Ballad suite was one of my first purchases, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on every single item in the suite, they all just co-ordinate so beautifully together. The stamps are simply gorgeous and the papers…. well, I am lost for words. I love making samplers, and really enjoyed this one, on a canvas frame. The frame itself is 10″ x 8″, to give you an idea of size. Sadly, […]
