Along with Just My Type 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, I always reach for this stamp when I use printed paper die cuts. Building Blocks II, I just love this dotty background and use it over and over again. And Sweet Little Sentiments, these sentiments definitely live up to their name!
What are the things you favour most when crafting?

I've been having a bit of a sort out in my craft room over the last few days, things were beginning to look a little untidy! As I was dusting my very neglected embossing folders I took pity on them and rustled up a couple of cards...
I'm easily distracted!

Over at Let's Craft and Create this month our challenge is ribbon or twine, so I reached for my favourite Ribbon Girl button twine for my project. The design of my card is one I love making and use a lot, especially when I need to put a card together quite quickly!

I'm just loving butterflies and big sentiments at the moment!
We're off on a very exciting cruise tomorrow to Iceland and Norway, so things will be a little quiet around here! However, I do have a post scheduled next week for our August challenge over at Let's Craft and Create. Until then, happy crafting!

It's definitely a beautiful day here today. The sun is streaming through the house and the windows and doors have all been thrown open.
I don't have a card to share, but I do have a little peek of a project I've been working on during our trips away in the van. I always like to have a little crafty project on the go!
I first spotted this crocheted baby afghan on Pinterest and loved the colours and design so much I just had to make one myself. You can find all the details on Sarah's blog Repeat Crafter Me. You'll be blown away by Sarah's creations they are absolutely amazing!
Enjoy the sunshine and happy crafting.

Today I'm sharing a card I've made using Flight of Fancy,one of the newstamp sets and die collections being released at Clearly Besotted Stamps this month.
There are four different sized butterflies in this set, the largest is great for making wee gift cards!
In the release this month there are five new stamp sets, four have coordinating die collections, and then four standalone dies. All of which will be available to purchase on Saturday 5th July at 10pm UK time.
Be sure to visit Stephanie's blog, she has some fabulous samples along with links to the DT and Jen Nelson, this month's guest designer.
I just love this cute hippo and bird in Lawn Fawn's Year 4 stamp set and have had my eye on it for sometime. I am so pleased Make The Day Special is now making sets like these more obtainable here in the UK.
Of course I couldn't buy the stamp set without having the matching dies too, and before I knew it Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka paper pack had also leapt into my cart! I don't use many papers on my cards but I adore spots and stripes and the colours in this pack are so yummy!
Having been away for a few days it was so nice to have these new goodies to come home and play with... after I'd done all the washing of course!

The design team along with guest designer Yulis Kartika have some fabulous creations to share. You can find them all here along with any information you need about the challenge.
I made a template of three dragonflies using the solid template, sponged on some Rangers perfect medium embossing ink, sprinkled over some WOW opaque white super fine embossing powder and heat embossed them.
After the fabulous June release from Clearly Besotted, it's now time for a challenge. This month is a very easy one as Anything Goes!
I used the gorgeous dragonfly die collection and hello word die for my card along with some cardstock I marbled using ink some years ago! I knew it would come in useful one day!

Home from a lovely few days away in Chirk, Wrexham. We took our wee Honda motorbike with us and had a lovely ride out to Llangollen, Llanberis Pass and Snowdon. Although we had thunderstorms and heavy rain Saturday morning, it brightened up during the afternoon and we had a lovely walk to Chirk Castle.
The sun is shining through my craft room window and although I haven't made any cards today, I'd like to share some little notecards I made last week using Clearly Besotted's Pretty Petals, Pretty Petals Plus and Sweet Little Sentiments which is due back in stock very soon!
Hubby and I are having a lovely time away. The weather was really nice yesterday afternoon so we ventured into Llangollen and had a walk to Horseshoe Falls along the canal.
Seeing as the internet here on the campsite is good, I thought I'd share a couple more cards I made for Clearly Besotted's June release. I hear Stephanie had a very busy night once the sets hit the shelves!
