Ingvild Bolme & Prima Valentine's Blog Hop

Hey crafty peeps!

It's that time of the month where the Ingvild Bolme team join in for a hop over at Prima Marketing! And I have to tell you, I love it :) So this month, we were asked to do something for Valentines Day....

I have a taken a slightly grungy non-traditional approach...suprised? lol

I have used some Ingvild Bolme Vintage Water taps (how awesome are these) as well as some Junkyard findings special screws.

Other products include the best paper range to come out this season (in my humble opinion) Holmes In Love by UHK Gallery.

 as well as some awesome checker chipboard by Polish manu, Wycinanka.

Make sure you hop along at Prima and see all of the other amazing projects by the IB design team...incredible!!

Thanks as always for stopping by :)

Cards For Scrapmatts

Hey my fellow crafty people :)

Dropping by with a few cards today as part of my Guest Designer spot with Aussie chipboard masters, Scrapmatts.

I've gone for a grungy vintage feel on this one with lots of layers and earthy colors.

And the next one I decided to break out some brighhter colors (rare for me) and do a mixed media style background with watercolors & gesso.

Check out Scrapmatts here

Thanks for stopping by!

So my first project....
If you a regular at my blog you would know that 'Romantic' style isn't something I really do, add pink to that and I am well out of my comfort zone. BUT the great thing about this stunning kit is it just seemed to come together so easily, no matter what your style is. I really love these gorgeous papers from Maja Design...

 My next layout is using a vintage photo of my Dad. These papers and embellishments were just made for it. Can you see the little bits of chicken wire? Yes that comes in the kit too!

My next project is for this month's Swirlydoos Sketch Challenge!

February Sketch, created by Beggahuna, specifically for the Lady Belle Collection!

Check the sketch challenge thread in our forums to see what the designers and other members have created using this sketch for inspiration!

 This kit also comes with one of my all time favourite and much used products - a Prima Stamp. It also comes with some Cooper Liquid pearls so I have used both together to add texture and a little more color.
