domo arigato mr robato

I love how the versamark looks with the stamped sakura flowers on this card, in fact I think the whole card is cute...

every last scrap

I hate waste, so I try to fine ways to use up every last scrap of papers I’m using, sometimes it appears to work, others less so, I think I like the background but less convinced with the overall card this time.

I have a superpower, I've always had it, it amazes my family to this day, some like superman are gifted with the power of flight, or super strength, others like mystique the ability to morph into other forms, some like spiderman can climb vertical walls, then there are still others like batman who just have cool tech. I'm better than batman, money can't buy my power...

What is this super amazing power of which I speak, I know where things are...

Not just a, I never loose my keys, my phone, my umbrella, no this is two years after moving house I can tell you exactly which box I put my spare silhouette blades, I know exactly where in the shed we put the brush for painting said shed, I know where every item of food in my kitchen is stored, I know, I just know. I can still do it for my parents house and I haven't lived there in 17 years, if I see it I remember, and I can find it again.

So it is not often I loose things, or forget I have them, this paper stack by Laura Ashley I forgot I had, if you'd reminded me I would have gone, oh yes that is here, but instead I came across it looking for something else (which was exactly where I thought it should be).

So I kept out the paper and it is the latest focus of my stash busting, of my using up of supplies so they all fit in my smaller study now we live in the south.

hello baby

I don't know why I'm so attracted to making baby cards, but I do seem to make a disproportional number of them. This time I'm using up old Pebbles collection, New Arrival which I got as a 'pack with an album, stickers etc from TK Maxx back when I was in Aberdeen for silly money.

Here I've combined it with the American Crafts Simply Chic which I think I'll be using for a while to come and some Lawn Fawn die cuts. The baby is cut on my Silhouette, and no, I haven't yet managed to get it set up since moving house but this is something I cut back in Aberdeen as well onto sticky backed card.

I think its cute, but that's partly down to those cute birdies.

live the life you love

I'm just not able to fulfil my ideas quite how I plan them right now, a lot of things that are ok, but not great, but I'm trying to work through it, I enjoy creating even if things aren't going perfectly for me.
