111 Places - part 4


Hello. I've been out and about again, ticking off another place in my '111 Places in Glasgow That You Shouldn't Miss' project.  If you haven't a clue what I'm on about part 1 is here and part 2 is here and part 3 is here!

This time I was at number 106 in the book. The University Cafe in Byres Road. It's an old style cafe that has changed little since 1918. Hot Peas are still on the menu!


 The other insert in this travellers notebook is my Nature Journal. 
Love how they are both getting a little chunky!

smile



Hello. Do we really know what our pets get up to when they are alone? I like to think that as well as a very long snooze they have fun, maybe even taking selfies like the dogs and cats on these cards! 


The stamps are from the Picture Perfect set by My Favourite Things and the die cuts are by Mama Elephant. I coloured using my Inktense watercolour pencils.

Hobonichi - April Update



Hello. It's time for the monthly update on my Hobonichi Techo. If you are new to my Hobo' updates my March update is hereFebruary update is here and the January update is here (January includes a bit of background info').

I have filmed a quick flip through of January to March, have a peek here.

The page above is all about what turned out to be D-day! We had lunch at the Dandelion Cafe, and saw Dippy, Dali and Da Vinci at Kelvingrove. If you get a chance to see any of the drawings you should go, they are amazing. 


We treated ourselves to an overnight stay in Dunkeld and spent the next day in Aberfeldy. If you are in the area I can highly recommend the Watermill for lunch/coffee/cake!


Sometimes I just do a bit of stamping, washi and stickers. 
Some days there's just not much happening!


Nearly half way through April already, I have kept my start page clean and simple.
And here is where she lives, alongside her mate from last year!

oh happy day


Hello. Just like a dog is not just for Christmas the Sweet Treat Box from Paper, Pen and Plan is not just for planners! I used a journal card, doily, twine and buttons all from this months box. I did add a little stamped mouse, but that's 'cos stamping and colouring is my favourite thing to do and I couldn't stop myself! The stamp is from the 'garden mice' set by Newton's Nook.

Rightyho, I have a heap of memory keeping to do as we were away for a few days last week in the gorgeously relaxing Dunkeld House Hotel in Perthshire, gin cocktails were involved!! I also want to do pages in my nature journal and 111 places in Glasgow journal. Busy afternoon ahead!

just a note...


Hello. In the last twenty four hours we have had hail, snow, rain and sunshine. Just the other day I thought it was spring for sure! Anyway, cardmaking is well and truly in spring mode regardless of the weather.

My card features 'you are the best' stamp by Penny Black. I used my Versafine ink pad to stamp and my Inktense pencils to colour. The daisies have been die cut from watercolour card and I also coloured them using my pencils.

I am entering my card into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge....Feminine.

April Sweet Treat Box


Hello. The April Sweet Treat Box is called 'Choose You' and is definately my favourite box so far! The colour scheme is a soft teal and lemon/gold, totally gorgeous. Look at that beautiful pen, those super cute paper clips, the washi, the buttons - I have plans for it all! 

As usual I have filmed an unboxing, you will see a proper close up of everything in the box. You can find it here on my You Tube channel.

make one person happy


Hello. I'm back today to share a simple page in my passport size journal. Just a quick wash of colour across the page then stamped the sketchy flowers around the edges. I coloured the flowers with my Zig brush pens, added some random dots and stamped the words in the centre.


The sketchy flowers are from Colourific and the set is called Moderne Flowers. Colourific are having a Design Team Call and all the info' is here. The stamps are great to work with and there are exciting times ahead for this new business. Why not give it a go and apply (I might see you there!).

just a little note...


Hello. My card today features two new stamp sets by Newton's Nook. The flowery square is from the 'Floral Fringe' set and the mouse and sentiment is from 'Garden Mice'. I coloured with my Zig Real Brush markers.

I am entering two challenges...

Allsorts...favourite stamp or die (so hard to choose but I guess, because hardly a card gets made without using them, it has to be my square dies!)
Cute Card Thursday...spring fever.

Hobonichi - march update


Hello. It's time for the monthly update on my Hobonichi Techo. If you are new to my Hobo' updates my February update is here and the January update is here (January includes a bit of background info').

On these recent pages there's stamping, journaling, stickers, washi and a bit of watercolouring. I love to throw everything at this little book! The background stamp was free with a magazine and the stickers and washi are from Little Rainbow Moon.


I love how it's starting to get chunky....

hello friend


Hello. I'm back having a play with my Penny Black stamps, this one is called 'garden treats'. I coloured the stamped image using my Inktense pencils. The background tree is a stencil, the bees are from the MFT set 'meant to bee' and the sentiment is from the Technique Tuesday set 'I like you'.

And how cute is my little glass hare? It was a gift from my bestie and I'm sure will be used many times in my 'staging'!
