Look, no layers!

Hello. I've been having loads of fun with quick and easy stamping! No papers, no colouring, no embellishments. Just me, some stamps and my little chalk ink pads.

I love that these quirky dogs look like greyhounds, well, apart from the one in the middle!

And the final set includes my favourite - the succulents in the middle. Very on trend!! These three little sets are available to buy over in my Etsy shop here.

More Memories - part two!

Hello. Following on from this blog post I'm sharing a few more pages in my Simple Stories Sn@p album. I love memory keeping in these sort of albums. You get a mix of patterned thick card pages, some plain kraft pages and a mix of clear plastic pockets that you simply slide your pics into. 
Just add a few stickers and job done. 

I also love to decorate the cover. 
This is my yellow album so the paper from the Emoji set matches perfectly.

And the front page inside.....let's do this!

This is my second album and I was looking through my first one the other day and it's amazing how these are a great reminder of where you've been and in our case, what we ate!!

If I have put you in the notion to release some pics from your phone and get them in an album then you can buy gorgeous Simple Stories goodies over at Paper, Pen and Plan

July Sweet Treat Box from Paper, Pen and Plan

Hello. I'm here to share what's in my monthly Sweet Treat box from Paper, Pen and Plan. If you want to see the contents of the box in more detail I did a quick two minute unboxing video which you can see here.
As well as everything in the box subscribers get access to printables.
You will get a secret code in your box!

As you can see this month's box included a tube of watercolour and a paintbrush. So of course I had to add a little colour to this weeks planner pages. There's another quick video (in the hope that I'm not boring you) of the process I used to create my planner pages and you can see that one here!

So, if you want to know more about how the boxes work, order a one off box or subscribe to a monthly box simply click here. There's also a friendly Facebook group here.
The girls at Paper, Pen and Plan also sell loads of cute planner bits and bobs over in the Etsy store here.  They have also started to stock some gorgeous Simple Stories and Lawn Fawn goodies.

from all of us

Hello. I fear for the little mouse but he's doing a grand job of covering a little smudge of black ink!! The stamps are 'The Cat's Meow' by Mama Elephant and I coloured with my ZIG pens (no surprise there).

more memories!

Hello. I have made a start in documenting the road trip we took in May. I'm working one holiday behind - but I'll get there! This trip was to a gorgeous little cottage in a wee village called Spittalfield in lovely Perthshire. Two pages so far, more to come! Nearly everything on these pages came from my monthly Sweet Treat box from Paper, Pen and Plan.

And, of course, you can't forget the hound!!
