WOW And Catherine Pooler Blog Hop

Hello there, I hope you’re all good and ready for another week of fun and inspiration. Today marks the start of the blog hop between WOW Embossing powders and Catherine Pooler and I’m totally thrilled to be part of it.
I fell in love with this stamp from the “Love Is In The Air” set the minute I set eyes on it as it’s just gorgeous. I can see it’ll become one of my go to stamp sets in the future as it’s so virsatile.
As well as the stamp set I also used two beautiful Catherine Pooler ink pads and created the watercolour background by smooshing some on my craft mat and spritzing it with water. You really don’t need much as the colour is so juicy and intense.
I used Chocolate Caramel Pearl powder from WOW to emboss the image and the contrast is perfect.
 We at WOW are very excited to play along with each of the talented design team members to bring to you a fun blog hop full of love, hope & travel. We will be using Catherine’s “Love is in the air” Stamp of Approval Kit which has just been released this month for you to purchase. AND most importantly Catherine Pooler’s new ink collection.
The most fun part of having a blog hop is meeting, sharing and inspiring one another in this beautiful crafting community.
We feel so honoured to have this opportunity with each other and we all hope this collaboration inspires you all.

Foiled Projects

We’re already half way through April and before you know it we’ll be in May and looking forward to Summer. That does scare me a little bit. When I was younger time seemed to drag by so very slowly I was wishing my days away but now I think it’s like being on a bob slay ride. I’ve still got lots of things to cross off my to do list from New Year and new things are being added all the time.  It’s the same for all of us I suppose. We just have to make every second count and try not to waste any.

The reason for the rant was because I can see from my blog that I’ve not been keeping my posts up as frequently as I should. Time has been going by so fast I’ve not had chance some weeks to sit and write.  Anyway, I think you’d much prefer the pretty pictures so here are a few.

Last week I had a project up on the WOW blog where this months theme is Foils. I adore using foils especially through a stencil as I did here.

At the same time WOW are also running their monthly challenge over on the their Facebook group where anyone can join in with a project. Again Foils are the theme and here I simply used the foil with some double sided tape to create a border around my April bullet journal page.

I’m practicing my hand lettering too and the more I do the better it gets.

Have a good week

IndigoBlu Mega Flakes tutorial

A couple of people had asked me if I would show how to use the Mega Flakes  from IndigoBlue which I have in the shop so I thought it would be a good idea to do it as a video.

This is the card I ended up making along with a couple of other projects.

I hope you find it useful.

You can find the Indigoblu products in the shop here, under stamping accessories

I’ll be back tomorrow with another journal page
