Hello and welcome back to the blog.  Happy New Year to you!  I hope this year is filled with love and a sense of calm after the crazy ride of last year!

Today I am sharing a layout I created featuring a photo of my sweet girl and I from her Year 12 graduation.  Yep she managed to pass and be accepted into TAFE after a bit of a trying year completing year 12.

I started my layout by layering together a few pieces of chipboard after I had covered them with some ink.

I then positioned this on my page and added my photo and a few other piece of chipboard to my background page.

Here are a couple of close ups.

Moodboard Dusty Attic - January

Hello and thanks for stopping by.  Im back on the blog today to share with you my take on this months beautiful moodboard.

I used the beautiful Wedgewood papers from 49 and Market to create my moodboard inspiration this month.  

I created a cluster of chipboard embellishments and then added my photo.  Once that was done I adhered it to my page.  I went back to my white background that I love and added some rub ons for extra detail.

Here are a couple of close ups

We would love to see your take on our moodboard.  Don't forget to share your projects on our Facebook page.

Until next time
Happy crafting

Welcome To Crafted With Love and Roses

Hello and welcome back to my blog.

Some of you may be aware that I now have a small online store.

Let me introduce you to

I am so excited (and very nervous)!  I love papercraft.  I love to create and I love to inspire others.  This is why I have decided to take a big step and start an online store with the love and support from my amazing hubby.  This truly could not have been done without him.  His technical knowledge has been invaluable.

My website has been created not only as a place to sell my handmade items, but as a place where you an be inspired.  Lots of the items in store can be recreated, so you have the option to make your own or buy a special piece for your pages or cards.  All products on my site have been made by me, in my home, with love and attention to detail.

Here is a little look at a few of the  handmade embellishments I have on offer at the moment.  These will change all the time but you will also soon have the option to purchase a ready to make kit for yourself too!

Decorative Frame with Cherub and Fob Watch

Hanging Globes and Mini Cogs
Set of Two Masculine Embellishments with Alcohol Ink.

Set of Two Happy Birthday Frames

You will also find in store a selection of my favourite crafting products from stamps, dies, tools and a huge selection of chipboard and alcohol inks.

My scrapbook layouts and card kits will also be available.

As I said I am so excited for the future.  I would love for you to pop over and have a little look.  At present we are shipping to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.  We are currently working on USA and UK though as you can appreciate your orders may take a little while longer with Covid.

Thanks so much for stopping by and your continued support.

Stay well, be happy and keep creating!
