We love the versatility of mixing and matching our stamps and die-lights to create unique and personal projects and we know you will too!

The winner will be drawn from those who have left a comment on each of our DT blogs and the Whiff of Joy blog.  At the end of the hop, go to the Whiff of Joy Blog, let us know that you have left a comment at each stop of the hop by using the inlinkz tool and you will be entered for a chance to win!

The hop will remain open until  midnight Tuesday April 22nd CEST. Winners will be announced on the Whiff of Joy Blog.

This beautiful image is 'Spring Bees'.


With this sweet image I decided to alter a notebook. I layered and stitched some patterned papers, added a doily and some lace for a delicate touch and some stickles to the bee's wings and edges of the image to add a bit of sparkle.


To my flower cluster I added a WOJ charm and WOJ's Vintage Button Twine to finish it off.

Thank you for joining us, I hope you are enjoying the blog hop and gorgeous release this month and a happy Easter to you!

WOJ - Little Fisherman

I have a sweet little card for a special little boy's birthday. This digi from WOJ 'Little Fisherman' is perfect for little boys but great for the 'big' boys too!


I don't make a lot of male themed cards and I really need to but when I do I tend to keep them fairly simple. I guess its because I stay away from lace and pretty things like flowers. The papers are Maya Road 'Life's Journey", the sentiment is WOJ 'Festive Occasions' and I finished it off with a button and some twine.


Isn't he the sweetest fisherman? Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

Tea?

I have joined in with a little bit of fun, a mug swap! Today I am not going to go into too much detail about it until my lady has received hers and then I will share it with you. But I will show you my card I made to send with it :)

I've used this delightful stamp from Whiff of Joy's set 'The Scent of Winter', did you know Whiff of Joy has some mixed media stamps? This one was perfect to send off with my mug!


I simply heat embossed the stamp onto some kraft cardstock, used Prima 'Sparkling Spring' papers, added a doily and finished it off with some Wild Orchid flowers and a heart pin.


I had so much fun with this, so do I play some more with this set or do I grab Whiff of Joy Henry and have some fun with my Copics?!?

Thanks for stopping by, have an awesome weekend :)

Whiff of Joy Blog Hop


Welcome to the March Whiff of Joy Blog Hop! If you didn’t come here from KARINA'S blog, then head on over to the start of the hop at Whiff of Joy Blog. I don’t want you to miss a single stop on this hop!

This month, the Whiff of Joy Design Team is celebrating their “favorite things”. With so many amazing products in our collections, we decided it was time to do this type of hop. Each member has picked some of their very favorite Whiff of Joy products to showcase in their creations!

So, grab a cup of coffee and get yourself cozy and comfortable to hop along to see our Favorite things! A complete list of the hop can be found on the Whiff of Joy blog  just in case you get lost along the way!

 
I loved the idea of this month's blog hop but then when it came down to me choosing my favourites, it was a difficult task. You see I have a very long list of favourites!
 
So today I just have a few of my favourites, simply because I can't fit all of them on my card. I am loving Whiff of Joy's new 'bee' stamps and this one 'Bee Mine - Simply Maya' is so sweet.

 
One of my 'go to' staples when crafting is 'Vintage Linen Button Twine' (love this stuff!) and I love all of the charms, can't pick a favourite. This little charm is 'Feathers and Swirls' and adds the perfect finish to my card. I kept the design simple to keep the main focus on my coloured image and the little cluster of embellies. The paper is Prima 'Delight', mini tag from my stash, flower and alphabet stickers are Prima too.
