Mini Clutch Album

Hi Everyone! 
Thanks for stopping by to check out my clutch inspired mini album! 
This is a really cute project, & could be altered to suit any photos or style. 

Here's my front cover....

So bright & happy! 
Features the gorgeous Soleil papers and stickers from Basic Grey, Prima button & brad, Studio Calico photo frame & wood veneer, Amy Tangerine vellum heart, fabric brad & peg, Kaisercraft roses 
& Typo self inking stamp.
Let's take a look inside......
My children's initials, and the date of the photographs..... 
& a cute lil tag directing you to the good stuff.

And here it is.....
So cute & happy! Love this! 
Isn't it just the sweetest 'clutch' mini album?!

A little hidden journal note under the tag.....

A really cute project to show off any of those fabulous family moments. I love it!
Hope you did too!

Not So Basic, Grey...

Hi Happy Arty Days Fans,

A lil Basic Grey: Mint Julep to share with you today! 
This range is soooooo pretty, I can't get enough of it! 

But enough talking, here's a taste of what I've been creating......

Super pretty, huh?!
All the papers have such gorgeous designs, that I found it hard to pick which to use!
Loving the metal heart charm, wire, and enamel dots embellishments that
I added too!

Here's a close up or two.....
So sweet!

Such happy memories, such a happy layout!

& here's a little inspiration tag made from the scraps.....

 Told you it was the prettiest paper range!

Hope it leaves you feeling inspired!

Thanx for visiting,

Happy Arty Days,

A Mixed (Media) Bag!

Hi Happy Arty Days Friends!

A super short post from me today as it's a holiday weekend :-)

Bit of a mixed bag to share with you.

First up, this inky, modern card:

 Love the natural wooden flourish from 
Kaisercraft, and the jute twine sets it off perfectly!

Second up, another arty, inky number.....

 How sweet is this tag?! 
So happy!

Finally, an art journal page that I never got around to sharing...

 So loved creating this! 
Nothing like a lil Eiffel Tower to inspire you!

Well, thats all for now.
Thanks for stopping by,

Have a Happy Arty Days Easter!

Pretty Card Set

Hi Happy Arty Days Fans,

April is such a busy time of year for me! 4 birthdays, plus Easter means mega card and gift creating!
Thought I'd just share 2 of  the cards today....

This is a mother and daughter birthday set. Both feature that gorgeous 
American Crafts paper, as well as an intricate Couture Creations doily.

Love that pretty blue...

To keep this card "young" I added the Simple Stories: Charmed Life heart 
& Studio Calico Wood Veneer Birdies. 
A tiny rose bud from Green Tara 
& number 3 complete this card.
Too cute!

 For this more elegant card, 
I added roses from Green 
Tara & Prima, as well as a classic navy trim. Voila!

Love the simplicity!

Pretty cards, so easy to create yourself! 
Hope you feel inspired! 

Thanks for stopping by, 

Happy Arty Days,

Easter Treasures

Hi Happy Arty Days Fans!

Lots of Easter creations to share today! Hopefully, they'll inspire you to give a lil handmade love this Easter....... 

I love this lil bunny!
I found him in a gift store, all brown & seriously unloved....

 He wasnt too pretty....

But a few coats of gesso, 
& some Kaisercraft rub-ons started his beautiful transformation:


Already improved!


Lots of lovely Green Tara roses & pearl trim,
Melissa Frances mini frame & a
Prima nest complete this lovely Easter treasure. 
It's for my Grandma, so I also added her name to this beauty....... 
Hope she likes him as much as I do!

Next up is my amazing 
Woolworths find!
Yep, I found this incredible jar at the supermarket! 
Again, seriously unloved, so I gave him a lil Happy Arty Days treatment;

 Lots of 
Green Tara 
& Prima goodness here......

 Isnt this jar just delightful?!

& coordinates beautifully with my other Easter Delight!

 Im hoping these lovelies will be treasured much longer than the chocolate eggs........

Simply no time for cardmaking? 
How about a super cute tag, that takes only minutes to make?!
Love this happy, colourful creation!

Loving those MME enamel dots! 
& that divine paper is from Studio Calico.

Here's one more for final inspiration.....

Cute Card!

Hi all! A really, super quick post & card from me today  :-)

 I know, such a cute card, right?!
