Enjoy the small moments - it's all good

Hello. I have two cards to share today. Both using stamps from many years ago. I've often thought I should clear out my old stamps but you know I'm sort of attached to them all. And, as long as I have enough space I will continue to be a stamp hoarder.

And, I'm sorry to say, the names and makers of the stamps are not on the packaging but I think the one above is Daisy and the one below is Longsocks, but I might be wrong! I don't even know if you can still get these anywhere, they might even be crafty antiques! I know at the time Daisy was quite sought after.

I stamped using Versafine and coloured with Zig Real Brush markers and water.

Plan with me!

Hello. Today I am sharing next weeks planner pages. I am hoping this will become a regular feature on a Friday! Once again these are my pages 'before the pen'. This week I used stamps by Julie Nutting and coloured with my Prismacolour pencils and blending solution. I have made a quick 'how to' video here on my You Tube channel.

The new Julie Nutting Doll Stamp sets are available to pre-order over at Paper, Pen and Plan.

Hello. Today I have created a little scene on my card. The cute gnome and snail are stamps from 'You Gnome Me' by My Favourite Things. The tree and fence are dies and the teeny daisies are punched. I coloured everything using my Inktense watercolour pencils.

I am entering the Cutie Pie challenge....January Blues

Chubby Chums

Hello. I have two cards to share today. Both of a similar style and both using stamps from the Chubby Chums set by Paper Smooches. The chums have both been given a quick wash with my watercolour pencils. The backgrounds have been cut using My Favourite Things Blueprints dies. The background papers are 'feels like fall' by Pretty Little Studio.

I am entering my card into 'If You Give a Crafter a Cookie' challenge. This is a new challenge to me but my friend Debra is on the design team and I just had to enter. Do pop over and enter if you get a chance.

I am also entering the Paper Smooches 'anything goes' challenge.

Have you noticed my posh new background? My old homemade lightbox finally collapsed. It served me well for 9 years! This one is homemade as well but using a sturdier box and lined with faux wood paper. I'm pretty chuffed with it.

Plan with me!

Hello. Today I am sharing next weeks planner pages. These are the pages 'before the pen' as we say in planner world! They have been spoofed up with stamps, colouring and washi tape but my actual plans for next week have not yet been filled in. Well, I don't want the whole world to know what I'm up to!

If you are keen to know more about how to stamp and watercolour on your planner pages then have a look at the quick video I made here on my You Tube Channel. All the details about the products used are in the video.
