So Poorly

Poor Harry. He's really under the weather at the moment and he keeps snuggling up to me and following me about.

Hopefully in a few days he will be back to his old self.
Don't you just love that cute little face xx

Ladies That Craft Blog Launch


I have decided that's it high time Ladies That Craft has its own Blog so that I can have my New Nanny blog back. I have been working on it for some time and I am delighted to announce the launch of the new blog today

If you like what you see here and you would like to keep up to date with all of my future Ladies That Craft posts, please click the link and follow the new blog. You can do this in several ways including by email and g+

For a couple of weeks I will continue to post the same content on both blogs and then on 14th November this blog will revert to my own personal ramblings.

I hope you will follow me over to the new site and I look forward to sharing many more projects and tutorials with you.

English Country Garden

Pale gluey greens are one of my favourites so this layout sort of came together on its own.

The idea behind it was to use papers from different ranges go together even though the colours didn't match.

So It was a good opportunity to break out the punches and the gems.

And here are a few photos taken in class. 

Good work ladies xx

Multiple photos

I love this layout but then again I'm biased as the lovely little girl is my youngest Grandaughter. The layout was not made for class but instead for a magazine, unfortunately it didn't make the cut so now I can share it on here.
Note to self...take better pictures before sending your work off lol.

I love the use of multiple photos. I know some people would never cut into a photo but I always try to use as many of my photos as possible so this seems a good way of doing it.

The pleated tissue paper under the photos is the tissue that you get in little packs and is meant for decoupage. I love it because it is so easy to scrunch or please and looks good on a page.

I also needed to add some journaling and Putting the tag to Olivia's finger made me smile.

and the flowers were made using a flower stamp and then cut out and stuck to make a pretty frame.

More tomorrow xx

Christmas Robin

I absolutely love this cracking Christmas Robin stamp by Woodware.

And the paper piecing is easy to go and very effective

Have a good evening. xx
