Butterfly Star Album

Good evening,
Here is another of my makes that were shown on Create & Craft this week, with the lovely Jenny Mayes.
I have made a Star Album using the glorious Hobby Art sets :
 'Butterflies', 'Typed Alphabet', 'Floral' & 'Wording' stamp sets
You can go treat yourself to them HERE
Here is my little album, hope you like it.
I started off using one of the larger butterflies and stamped up 'Fly' using the 'Alphabet' set. I have used 'Peacock Feather's' inkpad and have coloured the wooden butterfly with a Memento inkpad.

The second pages of the book are using three different butterflies.

'Dream' stamped up using the 'Alphabet Type' set.
Here is the centre of the book, using a great sentiment for the set.

Another word using the great 'Alphabet' set

Lastly, more butterflies and some black lace.
I do hope you have enjoyed my little book.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,

I have used the following stamps on my cards today :
Hobby Art - Floral and Wording Foam Mounted Stamps

You can purchase them here from the WEBSITE.
Firstly, here is a bright butterfly card - lots of Versafine ink and a Ripe Persimmion inkpad.

Happy Birthday Amy!

Anyway, here is my Little Claire Likes blog card for today.  Its a very quick and simple kraft tag card using a great stamp set called 'Lazy Days', which you can purchase at the special price of £5.50 until Thursday - HERE.
Off out with the girls today, then back to the decorating.

Daisy Bear

Happy Saturday to you!
I have just found this little card in my pictures box and I don't think I have shared her with the world yet.
The stamp used is a gorgeous little one called 'Daisy Bear' from Little Claire.  She is definately one of my all time favs from their extensive range.  She is such a pleasure to colour in and I have done so using two of my favourite coloured Promarker's, Putty and Sandstone Pink.

Here is my card

 I have combined her with lots of punches and dies and the paper is from Graphic 45

This week, Little Claire have launched loads of 'Dinky' stamps on their website.  They are only £2.00 each and are lovely, reasonably priced little images - go treat yourself - HERE.

Have lots of cards to make this weekend.  Am going to grab a large coffee, shut the world out and get creative.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for dropping by today,

Little Claire April Club Stamp - 'Re-Cycling'

Good morning!
Can you believe that it is April already?  I can't, where have the last four months gone??  My girls break up for the Easter holidays this Friday, two weeks of spending time together.  We have lots of outings planned, I cannot wait!
Anyway, the lovely crew over at 'Little Claire' are launching a gorgeous must-have club stamp set today.  It is themed 'Re-Cycling' and I haven't seen anything similar on the crafting market, so hurry up and grab your sets, before they sell out!
Here are two of my cards made, using this quirky set.  There are four great images and three useable sentiments included, even they are a little different and match the stamps perfectly!
My first card, is featured on the Club Pack Inspiration sheet and if you join the club, you get the kit to make this card up.

I love this little chicken and teapot!  He so wouldn't be re-cycled if he lived with me, I would have a small farm if I had the room and a garden full of chickens lol!
Here is my second card, using another image.  The little birds and flowers on this stamp, are so cute!

Here is the inside :
Just love these wellies, I want a pair lol!
If you would like to join the club, where you get a brand new stamp set each month, along with the products to make one card and an inspiration sheet - just pop over HERE to the website for more details.

Have a lovely April 1st!
