Dance In To Spring

I’d like to start this post by saying the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful way to start Spring and Easter. All this week we have had warm sunshine and gentle breezes, but today it’s gloomy and looks like rain.

I hope Easter Sunday will be better than today, it is much more fun if you can hide your eggs outside..

I’ve decorated my dining room ready for our Easter celebrations.  I just need to add a bit of chocolate to it now..

My newest kit is in store today and it just perfect for your Spring and Easter memories.

I also have a full collection, the paper mix, word strips and alpha are also available separately. In the collection there is a *bonus* set of 4 QP’s

30% off at Digital Scrap Booking Studio

and The Digichick

It’s such a pretty kit to create with!  This is my DD.. not too old to have a few Eggs hidden for her on Sunday,  I might add!

A Bit Of Monkey Business

My head is totally spinning this week with having 2 new collections out! But this one I am showing to you today has become my all time fave..

I was asked by Karen of Snickerdoodles Design if I would like to do a sock monkey kit with her.. this was talked about just under a year ago.. We actually got our heads together in February and started planning the kit. Karen had a little nursery song in her head ‘10 little monkeys jumping on the bed’  her desired criteria was to create a kit that bursts with as much energy as the little children in our lives. These gorgeous little sock monkeys are unique and absolutely stunning. I had so much fun designing these monkey templates and Karen and I have put our own stamp on them.. our designs have worked extremely well together.

What’s more… they scream hybrid! I have already made 3  cards and sent one to my sister as her birthday card.

Monkey Business


These papers are included in the page kit.

There are also many extras!




We also have this all in one big collection at a bargain price..

Isn’t it CUTE!!

and I did say it was perfect for hybrid too right?

and one made with todays newsletter freebie!

I really had a lot of fun making these.

Here are some inspiring pages from mine and Karen’s CT

Time To Chill!

I have had a very busy last few weeks as have re opened my shop at Digital Scrapbooking Studio. So now you can find my products at 2 stores!

It is quite exciting being back there with my old friends and without giving too much away they have kept me busy with a store designer co ordinated collection which will be released on the 1st of April and I have also had the pleasure of creating a ‘fun’ collab with Karen of Snickerdoodle Designs.

hmmm… maybe a few sneak peeks to just show you why I am so excited!

That’s a lot of work from someone who is still convalescing.

I must admit, I thought after all this designing I am definitely going to take a week off! So for a girl who is supposed to be resting up, what’s the best kit to open her new store with.. One about relaxation I think.

Use code lou-relax to get an extra 10% off this new product


on sale at Digital Scrapbooking Studio  and The Digichick

I created a page of my daughter..

and my CT have really rocked this at the very last minute bless them..

A Hybrid Card and new CU

Oh, I really cannot remember when the last time I stood in my craft room and made something for real! it was way before Christmas last year I’m sure!

Kim B Designs latest kit was too irresistible to play with, The papers are so stunning I just had to make a card with them, but could not just choose one!

So I used quite a few to make this card for Mother’s Day which in the UK happens at the end of March!


I made a 5.5 sq 9 block paper as the base of this card. the other printed parts are the scallop shape layer, the framed watercolour picture and the sentiment.

I printed these out on quality bright white card. cut them out and used Tim Holtz inks antique line and spun sugar to edge them a little.

I used a cream coloured A4 card (folded in half and cut into square) as the main base  which is also inked with my chosen inks.

The scallop template and ribbon strip were added to the 9 block paper before sticking down onto the card. Then the rest of the layers followed!

It was quick and simple to make, all of 20 minutes, but most certainly makes a pretty card for my Mother in Law.

Let The Sunshine In by Kim B


If you would like to make this card too, you can Smile

It’s A Love Thing!

In 2014 I plan to design a kit to mark each month of the year for our project 365 and also to fit everyday use too. Seeing as February is the month of love, I really wanted it to work around Valentines, but also wanted to show the love for all our family not just our partners. Reminiscence (February) has a lovely vintage feel to it, The softer colours give it warmth.

My husband and I married in February.. oooh, many moons ago! In fact we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary this year.

Reminiscence (February) is now in store and you can use coupon code alovething and get an extra 10% off the already discounted kit. It’s good through till Sunday!

Here’s a little inspiration.

Here’s a page I did of my friends daughter Jasmin, she is so lovely and extremely artistic, she enjoys and works in a vintage photography salon along with another job as a barista for Starbucks. She recently one a regional contest with coffee froth?? design.. I’m not sure what you would call it lol! anyway, it was a pretty swan on top of the coffee. She is also very much in to the vintage look with her hair and makes her own vintage style clothes.

Sweet Friendship and New CU

I have just finished week 2 of recuperating from my hysterectomy, the stitches have healed quickly and well. I feel good and am finding it difficult to just rest rest rest! We have a nice long garden so I have been able to stretch my legs, yesterday was warm and sunny and I could not resist walking round with a pair of secateurs and cutting myself some twigs for photographing and extracting. I have managed to give myself a little time on my computer in between rests.

Thank you to all who sent me messages of get well wishes.

So today I have available on sale in my Digichick Store, is something not brand new, but it is one of my favourites from my last years designs and I have eventually got round to giving it a little re dress and uploaded for sale.

Sweet Friendship use coupon code lou-SWEET for an extra 10% off
