Sketch plus exotic

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge has put up a sketch which you have to give an exotic touch!
Last year Mike and I had 2 days in San Francisco on our way home from Portland. We wandered down to the Saturday markets and wished we had somewhere we could cook. The produce was incredible! The colours, the variety and the freshness was amazing!! Producers would travel from miles away, in the early hours, each Saturday to get their stalls set up.
I have enjoyed using some of the brighter papers from Glitz Designs and Basic Grey for this layout.

These papers are available (and the gorgeous Glitzers) from Scottie Crafts, here.
And if you havent already, then check out the fun challenges over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, here.
Hope you all have had a peaceful weekend!

Card and flower tutorial

I made this card this morning for a special friend and thought that someone might be interested in a tutorial to make these simple flowers that I have used here and in the previous Southern Girls bloghop LO.

• Rayon seam binding (1 metre)

• TH Distress Stains

• Cardstock circles (1 ½ inch)

• Button or brad of choice (for centre)


• Xyron sticker maker

• Water spritzer

• Plastic gloves

• Heat gun


1. Randomly stain seam binding with 2 or more stains of choice. (Leave a little white space as well)

2. Spritz with water to mingle colours. Leave to dry or use heat gun

3. Run a cardstock circle through the Xyron sticker maker.

4. Starting on the outside edge of the circle sticker, attach the ribbon, pleating as you go.

5. Continue, in a spiral, until nearly at the centre. Cut and stick the end into the centre.

6. Attach button or brad.

So simple!! Have fun!
