Hexagons are on trend at the moment and I was keen to make a scrapbook page with them.  I used these papers from Pink Petticoat to show an autumn photo of my two boys larking around in a field.

I made the hexagon shape in Microsoft Publisher and then transferred the papers across and re sized them.

I stamped some white circles faintly in white onto the kraft paper and added some white rub ons to the edges of the hexagons.  I also did some stitching with my sewing machine in places.

I added some embelishments, this one made by myself with WOW embossing powders and a flower mould.

And some other embelishments from my stash, I am finally getting round to using them!

I was a bit cautious about using pastel colours on a boys page but it made a nice change.

What do you think? Thanks for visiting!


Butterfly Boy

Hi all, I hope your week is going well and welcome to my new followers, thanks for visiting my blog!

You may remember this post when I spoke about my youngest being Bug Boy, well we did the growing of the butterflies again this summer. He still loves watching the caterpillars turn into a crysalid and then into a beautiful butterfly!

As soon as the butterflies hatch we let them go, only this year, when we took them outside, they were not so keen to come out of their netted habitat.  My son carefully placed his hand inside taking care not to touch their wings, let them climb onto his finger, and then took them out and let them fly away!

I used kraft paper as my base and cut some butterflies out from some Tim Holtz paper. I coloured them with distress inks to match the real butterfly and added some perfect pearls for decoration.

I edited the photo in Picasa so that the photo was black and white appart from the colour of the butterfly. I layered this several times onto black and orange card.

I added a simple border by sewing around the edge with my sewing machine.  Here is the photo of him with one butterfly sitting on his finger!

Thanks for visiting today, have a wonderful weekend,


Websters Pages Digi Card

I love Websters Pages products and I love the fact that some of their pages are digital! I had a special friends birthday recently and wanted to make her a card, I knew which paper I wanted to use, its from the fab Postcards from Paris set here.

I resized the page in Publisher so that it would fit on a square card and printed onto Linen Cardstock.  I added some little gems on the centre of the flowers...

I made some butterflies with my Martha Stewart Punch which I then layered and attached with 3d foam pads. I printed the Happy Birthday in Nuptial font onto linen card stock and layered it onto lovely blue card.

I also needed to wrap her gift, and made use of the digi papers again to create a box to match the card.

I added ribbon, a button in the shape of a bow and cut a gift tag in the same design.

I so hope that she likes it!

Have a great weekend. Thanks for visiting!
