'Birdie' Cards

I have used a pack of 5 fabric flowers tiltled 'Birdie' from Tattered Inspiration to create these cards. 
You can find them here. I have also used prints, hat pins, trim, lace, tiles, a cameo and cabachon all available from Tattered Inspirations.

Time to Create!!

School holidays officially started at 3pm yesterday afternoon! After a 2 hour sleep on the couch I decided to venture into the studio to create...... and vintage Christmas was the theme. So I gathered together some of my Tattered Inspirations prints, trims and sheet music and away I went ..... took my time ...... and created these three cards. I was a little worried that having not created for so long that nothing would eventuate, but I have to say that I am really happy with the outcome.

NEW Tattered Creations!


Sorry for the absence in posting of late. As you know, I am a school teacher and over the last few months I have been consumed with writing 33 reports for my class. This is a hugely time consuming process and scrapping just had to take a back seat ...... but I'm back into it now and couldn't be happier to be creating again.

Here are two layouts I created this week using kits from Tattered Inspirations. You can fine them here ...... and I do believe there is a SALE section too ...... jump on over and grab yourself a bargain!


Happy shopping.
