Hi ya!

Just to let you know I have my first stationery haul to show you over on my Haul Videos page. 

It's my first Scarlet Lime Planner Society Kit!

Hope you enjoy x

Bellarific Friday- We are more than friends....

Hi ya! Hope you're all well.

As you might have noticed, I've been trying to catch up with showing you all my crafty stash that I've been buying over many months so keep looking at my Haul Video page as I'll be doing a new haul on a weekly basis at the moment. I've got my stationery hauls, Heidi Swapp, Purple Onion, LOTV, PTI, Simon Says Stamp and more still to show you!!!!!

Anyhoo, enough rambling and onto today's Bellarific Friday....

Today's theme was a sketch (see below) and I used the extremely cute Stuffie Gang...


I coloured The Stuffie Gang with copics and stamped the accompanying sentiment over the grass at the bottom. I paper pieced the little banner. These stunning papers are Echo Park The Story of Family. I die-cut the 2 washi type strips using MFT Washi die and the scalloped trim was also die-cut using an MFT die (can't remember which sized scallop it is!)


Here is your close up. 
I just love this lil gang of friends. And you can tell who's in charge, can't you?!!!


Here was your sketch by the amazing Julie Tilman! 
Next week's challenge is......BIRTHDAY WISHES!!!!
There is absolutely no excuse for not joining in with that one and don't forget you can win yourself some fab Bella bucks to spend! Details are here- entry emailed to Em or via Mr Linky by Thursday.

MFT Cheeky Monkey

Well hellooooooo!

***EDITED: Hey everyone! I'm super proud to say that I am being featured as today's Copic Artist over on Copic In The Classroom today. Check it out here.***

How are you this fine morning? I have an MFT card to show you today that I've made for one of my son's friends. I couldn't resist this Cheeky Monkey set since my son is very very cheeky!


I coloured one of the cheeky monkeys and one set of bananas with copics. To make the aperture in the card base I used the MFT Peek A Boo Wonky Window die and adhered some Doodlebug paper behind it. I added a further strip of paper from the same pad to the bottom of the card and stamped one of the sentiments using PTI Dark Choc ink. I then die cut out the monkey and bananas using the matching die and then cut out the "3" (MFT: By The Number dies) and the Boss Kut foliage. The little banner sentiments are by LOTV.


What a cutie patootie! x

Bellarific Friday- Edna Blows A Kiss and A Haul!

EDITED: I've just updated my Haul Videos page with a Stamping Bella haul from the latest release. Check it out here.

So another Friday has rolled around which means it's Bellarific Friday time. 

This week's challenge was a colour one (see below) and I decided to use the gorgeous Edna from the latest release. This is Edna Blows A Kiss and I also used Edna Blows A Kiss Sign Base...

I just love this new Edna collection- she's kinda everything you'd imagine a fairy godmother to be plus I love the loads of options she's comes with. So the main Edna Blows A Kiss stamp is a set of four and you can choose whether she's blowing fairy dust (like me), kisses or a little cloud. THEN Em has paired her up with some additional stamps you can do a little masking with and for this one I've chosen to have her sitting on Sign Base which also comes with a couple of sentiments! Phew- lots and lots of possibilities!! 
Edna is coloured with copics. I added some white gel pen to her wings and then covered them with Wink of Stella for some subtle shine. Stickles added to fairy dust for some serious glitter. These pretty papers are Basic Grey- I cut the layers using Lil Inkers dies. The grey ribbon is PTI Smokey Shadow.


I added a combination of RVs, Ts and a copic multiliner to make the dotty background.



Here was your inspiration for this week. Gorgeous colours! 


Here is your MojoBella sketch for next week. Get your entry in to Em or Mr Linky by Thursday for your chance to win some Bella bucks to spend! Full details are here.

Lili Of The Valley April Facebook Challenge- Bride and Groom

Hey crafting sweet peas!
How are you all?

Today I have a card to share with you for LOTV's April Facebook Challenge which is to use at least 3 of the following colours: aqua, pink, red, ivory and lilac.

I had a wedding card to do for friends of our's so I chose aqua, lilac and ivory- albeit in very muted shades using the very sweet couple from LOTV Bride and Groom...


I coloured Bride and Groom with copics and added some Wink Of Stella to her ribbons. I then added some pink and blue frantage. These papers are by Maja Design and I used them for the last wedding card I did- they're just so romantic and perfect. The card base was a Grand Scalloped Square Nestie. I distressed the edges of the papers and added some flowers and beautiful flower ribbon. The swirly "happy" die is a PTI ink one-liner die and I used it to cut PTI Silver Shimmer cardstock. The "wedding day" sentiment is from the matching set and I stamped it in Autumn Rose ink. I then added a LOTV Greetings Postmark stamp on top and cut a couple of teeny (ME) hearts.


Here's your close up. Aren't they just THE cutest couple? I love the little bit of frantage looking like confetti and the little postage stamp is so adorable- it's the little touches that make a handmade card special- that's why we do it, no?

You've got until 17th April to get your entries in and as usual, LOTV have got a fantastic array of prizes you can win.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (LOTV, PTI); Copics; Papers (Maja Designs); Cardstock (PTI); Frantage; Tim Holtz paper distresser, Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts, The Cheap Shop, Recycled); Ribbon (Wild Orchid Crafts?); Dies (Nestabilities, PTI, Mama Elephant); WInk Of Stella; Coloured ink (PTI)

MFT- This is how I roll!

So today I'm sharing with you another card I make absolutely yonks ago and somehow didn't get round to posting. 

This is MFT's Pure Innocence Roll With It...



I haven't bought any PIs for ages and when I see this lil cutie I'm not sure why! She totally makes me smile, such a sweet little thing. I think she may be retired now??? I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her top and shorts- they were just crying out for that flowery paper! Papers are by Pebbles. I stamped out both of the sentiments that come with her and cut one out with MFT Say What Speech Bubble Dienamics. Added a stitched panel and wee heart and I was "all done" (as my son says). Pretty simple card.

Bellarific Friday with Uptownie Tessie The Teacher

Hello sweet peas!
How's your week been so far? Today's Bellarific Friday was a sketch (see below). I used the fabulous Uptownie Tessie The Teacher...



Tessie was coloured with copics and a little Pico Embellisher on her glasses. These fun papers are by Echo Park called Teacher's Pet. Tessie comes with 2 sentiments- this one I cut out with one of the MFT Lead The Way arrow dies. 


Here's your Tessie close up. She looks like she'd be a pretty cool teacher I reckon- quite strict but totally loves her pupils. Do I read too much into stamps I wonder?!


Here was your fabbie Mojobella sketch
