June Stick it Down Single Page Challenge: Flock of Geese


This lay-out I found very challenging! And I do like a challenge!! Doing the geometric shapes was difficult for me. It's the one shape I do not have in my stash of dies so free styled it all the way!

 We live in rural Nova Scotia and although I am 100% basis, it is the most glorious country in all of Canada! Often we see wild life on a regular base and you can't get more Canadian in Canada Geese :) 

This ma and pa goose, decided to use a swampy area near our home to lay their eggs, hatch them and raise all three of their beautiful babies. They came in April and stayed until the fall. We got to see these wee ones develop and grow as the days went by. Photo's are not great quality as Papa Goose's spot was always at the back of the lone where he would quickly warn you not to get close.

Paper line from Simple Stories Vintage Great Escape made the perfect back drop. Embellishments from same line, as well as a little stitching.

Fernwood Cards x 40

The raining weather is perfect for crafting! This time of year my extra time is spent in the garden but when the God's give you rain you craft!

After completing the Fernwood Album and Tag Album with Vicki I decided to use all the left over bits and pieces for cards. I purchased the card and envelope pack and went to town! 

Hope this post inspires you to use all your left over bits and pieces from  whatever paperpacks you have.

I used a variety of wood chips  and word stickers from Tim Holtz collections and some Gina K word stickers to complete the cards.

Set Sail: Pear Tree Treasures Design Team Project

 Hi everyone!

By now we are are knee deep into the lobster season in Nova Scotia! I am so blessed to be part of a family where I can access these sweet, delightful, most delicious sea creatures...YUMMY <3

Using the beautiful paper line by Authentique (Voyage) I created this single page layouts. Made some custom embellishments by doing some fussy cutting and adding a little dimension. Of course some sewing helps as well.

Be sure to check out all the wonderful products over at the Pear Tree Treasures, this paper line.



May Stick it Down Single Page Challenge: Butterfly Beauty

 This months lay-out was very fun! I am really enjoying making clusters from the embellishments that come with the paper line and who doesn't love Simple Stories Vintage Weathered Garden collection!

The feature is a beautiful butterfly that was enjoying the hydrangea tree in our yard. A little sewing completed the page. Great design team!
