Lil' Show Girl

I wanted to decorate something today so this hardcover notebook I picked up from Asda for £1 was just perfect. I really love how this turned out and think this will make great stocking fillers for the children's little friends for christmas. This one is for me! I used these cute new High Hopes Stamps Lil' Show girl and her show horse and lots of Stickles. The letters were cut on my Cricut Expression.

Both the High Hope Stamps and the stickles are available to purchase in the store. Our sale is now on and we have 10% off all products. Also postage is free on orders over £15.

Hope your having a great Bank holiday weekend,

Sarah Kay - Picnics of Daises

Isn't this little girl just the cutest? This gorgeous Sarah Kay is called"Picnic of Daises". I just love these pretty bright papers too which are by Three bugs in a Rug and is part of their "Blossom" collection. The "Happy thoughts" paper in this range is just great as it has lots of words which can be chopped up for sentiments. I have used a combination of ProMarkers and Copics to colour my image and have to say apart from the nibs being different I can't notice a difference between the ink quality. Please see my card details below for the links to the products used on my project from the store.

High Hopes Sea Creatures

For this sea scene I have used Delores Dolphin and Simon Turtle which are just two of the cute characters from the new High Hopes releases. The Karen foster "Bubbles" paper was again just perfect for this project and I have used Doodlebug Gingham Ribbon (Blue Jean/Swimming Pool) to create my waves.

Hope you like it!
