Onward and Upward part 1

Wow, I cannot believe 2 weeks have passed since National Scrapbooking Day, I had such fun and was soooo inspired.  Fortunately for me the inspiration continued last weekend when the amazing Jennifer hosting a full on blog event at Jennifer Grace Creates.  There was so much creativity I have a huge list of ideas and here are some things I have made after seeing all the talent showcase on Jennifers blog.

Firstly a few cards

The first card was partly created from a leaflet that came through the door with a balloon on and the words, it was actually advertising a funeral service would you believe (and that is where the word 'fun' came from!) inspired by this post and I added the clouds made from vellum. The 2nd card was made from some scrapbook paper scraps for a friends son and the last 3 cards are tiny pale gold pearlescent cards and I used stickers that my cousin sent me to decorate them, very simple but definitely perfect for a bird theme here and  cards generally are inspired by this post.


  1. That's really creative, using things which pop through the door! And I very much like your silhouetted birds too. Lovely to read how creative you are feeling :).

  2. Hahaha love that the word "Fun" comes from a funeral advert.

  3. These are all great - I especially love the first one.

  4. I too smiled when you said the fun came from fun-eral, cool looking balloon! Glad you are feeling creative and having time to play. Thought of you when we were down at Wisley.

  5. These are fabulous, but I especially love the first one as it's so clever to use that leaflet, and to turn it into something lovely! The gold touches on the bird cards are fantastic too.

    Thanks so much for entering my challenge! x
