... Autumnal Feelings...

As all the leaves are falling from most of the trees around us and during the early morning there has been a bite in the air I have taken my colour choices from the season Autumn. It's well on its way! And for many of us our kiddos have returned back to school... with a little 'yippee!' from us crafty peeps out there :)

I used the scribble sentiments set, which if you haven't laid your hands on yet... you need to! It is one of the most versatile, with lovely words in the most delish font. I *heart* this one so much.

After layering all my paper on my layout up, I freehand (yes!) cut some wobbly and shaky circles. The whole layout just needed alittle bit of plain to balance up all the patterns. I then inked around the edges (I love the momento brown ink we have in, it's one of the best dark, deep browns that i've found) and still using this ink I stamped the 'love' and 'you' from the scribble sentiments. I stamped around the random sized, freehand circles... Thats the joy of clear stamps. You can see that you are stamping in exactly the right place. Thats if you keep them clean ;) And I strongly recommend that too!

By stamping your own little phrases, its abit like adding your own customed patterned paper... you really can make your layouts unique and get them to say exactly what you want them too!!

Love, Polly x

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
