The Best Pen Storage Ever!

Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a good Saturday.   I have something different to share with you tonight.  I don't normally get excited by storage, I leave that for the pretty paper but after searching and searching for the perfect pen storage Crafter's Companion have produced the perfect storage for pens!I can't tell you how pleased I am with it. I used to store my pens in these black draws which was ok but I had to keep rummaging around to find what I wanted. They were getting a bit bashed and not pretty enough for my craft room.

But now look at them, I can see every pen so no more rummaging and they look lovely!  I've stored my Spectrum Noir pens in mine but they will hold any alchol marker pen.  

This fanastic pen storage will be available to buy on Monday on Create and Craft as part of a four day deal.  You can find out more about the ultimate pen storage on the Crafter's Companion News and Views Blog.  There is also a fantastic facebook competition which you can find out more about here

Thanks for stopping by.

Party Time!

Hi everyone, I have a digi scrapbook page to share with you tonight.  This is of a party Grace went to last Saturday.  I made the page in my Serif software which I really love.    My Dad printed this out for on his A3 printer and I can put in my album alongside my normal paper pages.  I quite like having a mix of paper and digi pages in my albums and I really enjoy making both. Sometimes I just don't have time to make a paper page but I can just sit and relax in front of the telly and make a digi page. 

Thanks for stopping by.

A Butterfly Card .........

Hi everyone,   I've a simple little card to share tonight.  I love making little A6 cards like these.   My inspiration for this card came from a few different ones from Pinterest.  If you haven't checked out Pinterest yet I suggest you take a look it is so fantastic for craft ideas.   I've a Pinterest app on my phone which I love to look at when I go to bed rather than read and it sends me off to sleep thinking happy crafting thoughts! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Crafter's Companion Mid Way Challenge Reminder ...

Hi everyone,  my card today is my DT card for Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge mid way inspiration.  This is one of the super cute card companions from the Winter Paint Box Poppets Cd from Crafter's Companion.

The theme for the challenge this month is 'Gold'.   I don't normally use much gold on my cards so I had to have a rummage round to find some.  I'm sure I've only had this piece at least 5 years!  It did feel good to use it lol!

I do hope you will come and join in the challenge this month, there is a fanstic prize for the winner!
Thanks for stopping by.

Creative Craft World Guest Design Team Layout ....

Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a good weekend.   I have a guest design team layout to share with you today. I was thrilled to have a scrapbook GDT spot as this is the first time that has every happened!  My layout is for Creative Craft World for their September Scrapmap which you can see below. 

My layout is all about a little project Grace brought home from school to grow.  I love recording little things like these to look back on as these are things Grace would never have remembered.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely St Ives .............

Hi everyone and happy Monday morning to you all.  I have another layout of last year's holiday to share with you today of our visit to St Ives in Cornwall.  I love St Ives, it has lots of little shops full of pretty things and a lovely harbour where I took lots of photos. It's just my kind of sea side town.  Oh I wish I was back there today!  I love being by the sea. 

You probably can't see very well in this photo but I finally had a go at sewing on my layout and I love the effect. I want to have a go at sewing on cards next. I thought it would be difficult but actually it was really quick and quite easy. 

I would like to enter this layout into the following challenge:
Cute Card Thursday - A Stitch in Time
