Happy Birthday to You | Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop


It feels so good to be blogging again after having a baby! We always need some mama time but the question always becomes... when do we have time! Little Miss Claire is one month old now - its insane how fast time goes!





This month's Be Inspired callenge is to use Sale-a-Bration products. This happens to be the first time I picked up this gorgeous "Happy Birthday To You" Stampin' Up! stamp. I have seen some stunning projects with this stamp set.

Because I am just getting back into the craft room, I didn't try to over stretch my limited creativity. I went back to a tried and true style of mine with a watercolour background and a watercoloured image. Perhaps when I get some better sleep creativity will shower over me but for now I am going to enjoy the process of "just making".


Thanks for dropping by to check out my project today! Be sure to keep hopping along to see Manuela's project! I always love her creations!

Shake it Up! | Fancy Friday Blog Hop


It's 2020 and the Stampin' Up! past and current Artisans are back to bring you inspiration using current Stampin' Up! projects. Each month we currate a theme and this growing group of over 40 uber talented Creatives try to come up with a project. This month we are "shaking it up".


This Shaker Card project uses the Stitched Stars dies, irridescent sequins and Birthday Goodness stamp set. Did you pick up on the little stars amongst the sequins? Yup, they are the negatives from the swirly star die cut!


Now, have you been wondering I've been? Well, you likely remember I've been growing a baby - She finally arrived on January 23, 2020 weighing 7lb 12 oz and measuring 50cm. I am totally smitten and she's fitting in with our crazy family of five. I am working hard to find a new routine... and also space for all the "things" that comes with babies.



Things are changing in the Stampin' Fancy Friday world. This will be our last blog hop. Awwww but not to worry we are still around to give you inspiration. Instead of blogging we will be posting our projects to Instagram only, as well as individual social accounts like Facebook. We think the world is evolving and so should we!  So be sure to follow the Stampin' Fancy Friday Instagram Account @stampinfancyfriday to sure you don't miss out next month's projects!

I am so excited to be linking to Kerstin Kreis whom is am amazing Artist!!! Be sure to check her out next!
