Inspiration Lane BLOG HOP & PRIZES

Hurray!! It’s time for a Blog Hop! We’ve all been working hard to create some really fun projects using some of our favourite products and the best part is that you have OVER TEN opportunities to win!

I’ve made this project using Hazel & Ruby Masks, Washi Tape and Tissue Paper.



The fun and fresh grey and white polka dot tissue paper was easily applied to an X-Press It Canvas using TripleTac Glue.  I opted for a series of colour blocking and Washi Tape to sit as background for my EDNA sign. 


EDNA is an acronym for Every Detail Needs Attention, which is included in the script across the canvas, a sort of journal page concept turned into a name plaque if you will….

The EDNA letters were made on raw canvas, using Hazel & Ruby Letter Masks with red paint, they are applied to the canvas with X-Press It Double Sided Adhesive Tape, which works so well with fabrics.


I finished off the sign with phrases that represent my creative value statements, a little about me all with the fabulous Hazel & Ruby product range.... letters rock in every variety, so why not mix up some masked letters, with wash tape highlights, combined with personal handwriting!

Desktop Clean-Up Part D: Boys Boys Boys with a dash of Handsome

These are boy cards that have been sitting in a little bundle on my desktop waiting to be published on the blogaroo, which has little attention these days due to competing demands…. on reflection these were all made in November 2013… so airing them out now seems a little strange, but for some I am sure they will be fresh eye candy, enjoy!
