WOJ June Project Theme

The theme this month is a 'stair-step card' and the DT have done outstanding cards, you definitely need to head to Whiff of Joy's World of Ideas blog and have a look!

This is my card, I created a centre stair-stepped card and used a WOJ digi image 'Lazy Afternoon'.

I used some older Kaisercraft paper in my stash and it is perfect for little boys cards! Finished it off with WOJ Sweet Tags with Hearts, WOJ button twine and a Wild Orchid rose.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

Whiff of Joy Pocket Card

I coloured this gorgeous Whiff of Joy image 'Cosy Reading' some time ago and thought it would be perfect for a bookmarker.

So I made a pocket card with a tag, the tag can be used for a bookmarker.

Here is the pocket card completed, you can pop on over to Whiff of Joy's World of Ideas blog to have a look at my tutorial.

Simply Maya and her Ladybug!

I created this shaped easel card last month with Lime Tart's April A La Tarte, its actually my first shaped easel card, had heaps of fun!

The sentiment is from the stamp set in the kit and I clustered some flowers and finished it off with some butterflies and pearls.

I decided to keep with the gorgeous tone of the colours in the patterned paper, so I coloured my image with Copics E40's range, I love the monochromatic finish. This cutie is Whiff of Joy's 'Maya Watching a Lady Bug'.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments. If you feel like spoiling yourself, head on over to Lime Tart and have a look at the kits that are on special or grab yourself a new one!

My poor little neglected blog..........the month of May turned out to be a hectic time for our family. We have had lots going on and just when I thought things were starting to calm down, we spent most of last weekend in hospital with my darling daughter. She had to go to theatre for a surgeon to stitch her top lip, so after antibiotics, a tetanus shot and a trip to theatre she is on the road to recovery!

So this weekend I am catching up on house cleaning, wish there was no such thing as chores and I could just sit at my desk and play! Oh well, such is life but I still have quite a few projects to share with you, this is my DT Monthly Project for WOJ, the theme for May was a 'notebook'.

And I love altering notebooks! Something a little different for me, no stamped image! Instead I had heaps of fun with WOJ dies.

I have used WOJ 'Lovely Doily', 'Cute Butterfly Trio' and 'Fancy Hearts' border die. And finished it off with a WOJ flower 'Aster Daisy Light Pink'. I kept it pretty simple because this little book is for me to jot down notes, things to do, remember etc. so I wanted something simple and a little bit durable.

I will be back with more to share, I hope everyone is safe and keeping well, thanks for stopping by!
