My Sunday post with a layered page is up at the Sizzix UK blog.

Hi friends.

Hope the sun is shining on you, but  if not I hope that you can be inside having a scrappy good time.

I know I don't have much time to scrap at the moment but I am trying to use the moments I have as best I can. I finished the weekly page for Sizzix UK and here is a small sneak.


To see the entire page please visit Sizzix UK by clicking the link below.


I hope you like it.




I used the fabulous new April kit from Scraps of Elegance 'Flutter' for this page.

 I so appreciate the all the messages you left me there for my first post! 
Thank you!

Inkido share; 'Love this'.

I made this page as a contributor for PaperHaus Magazine April/Spring issue, but as there will be no more magazines I am allowed to share it already. I used some beautiful Inkido products for it.


I cut out a frame from one of the 'Beautiful Memories' papers and layered it on top of the sheet of  print paper.I added gesso and then some yellow Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I love the yellow drips!


I did a lot of stitching and added some torn cheese cloth to give the layout more texture. I layered some pretty pink and white doilies with corrugated tags from PapercraftScandinavia and those lovely mini roses are just the perfect finishing touch to my page. I used my Cameo to make the title from just ordinary patterned paper.

Inkido products used:
Beautiful Memories (Beautiful Pink, Butterflies borders), 
Tuva (Purple Orchid),
Cartas de Amor (Royal Red)
mini roses, cherry blossoms,
corrugated tags

Papirdesign products:
Doilies,
mini roses
letter stickers

Hugs!! :-)

Woo hoo, I am thrilled to tell you of a new design opportunity for me!!


Can you believe it!...? I am a creative blogger for Sizzix!!


 A few weeks ago I was at a birthdayparty when half way through the evening I decided to check my email notifications. I was a little surprised to see there was a comment on my blog from someone signing with 'Sizzix'. I was actually thinking someone had picked that as their nick because they love diecutting and not thinking it could be 'them'....I went to the blog and read the comment almost not believeing what it said. I had to ask my DD if she read the same as I did,..and she did. I googled and did all kinds of things to verify that this was genuine. LOL! I was dumbfounded Sizzix UK would be asking me to join the team without even having to apply. The day after I sent off a reply and only when I got an answer back was I convinced someone was not pulling my leg :-)

I think it is probably ok to share the message since it was actually posted publicly on my blog :-)



I am waiting for my DT parcel to arrive, but in the meantime as an ' illustration ' for this post I'm sharing a couple of close ups of recent pages that I think have Sizzix dies on them. 




is a link if you want to go check out the Sizzix UK blog
I really hope you will be back on Sunday mid-day when I'll be sharing my very first post there! 

Hugs!!
