Love Is...

Started this LO couple months back at one of Cals Rochdale crops, well I did the background piece which I stuck the picture on.  Actually made up the background page to stick it onto last night.  Kind of a art journal cum scrapbook page. 

Oldish pic of me and Gary from March 2011 when we went to Conwy.

Year 30

So this is new for me, as I've actually scrapped a picture of myself! As I turned 30 in June, I thought it would be nice to do a layout of what I've achieved this year, something I can look back on with a smile.

I used the remains of my August Kit from creative craft world
with some added extras that I've stashed over the years (i.e. Dragonfly brad!).  I tried to include some little bits in there which would represent something to me.

My picture was taken yesterday on my iPad, I've gone back to my near-ish original colour using a product called "Colour B4", its actually made me a little ginger but it has removed 2 years worth of red hair dye.  Other than mascara and lip gloss no other make up... OK I then ran it through an app called "Camera Dream" which gives everything a soft glow to it, very good for removing imperfections (what I'm 30! I'm allowed a little photoshopping lol). 

5 things I have achieved (and will achieve) this year!

This cupcake brad is to symbolize my 30th Birthday party, as I had a cupcake party! 
Over 40+ cupcakes were made (and eaten) lol

A dragonfly, pink crown, oh and some flutterbyes :)

Pretty green sparkly title (need to buy more of this lettering!), also some words for inspiration!

Faithful Friends

Hello everyone!
Boy is the temperature dropping here in the UK, today there was a def. chill in the air, will have to break out my winter coat soon (or buy a new one hehehe).  But its ok, because these two guys will be keeping each other warm and toasty :D

2 Cute Inks "Furry Friends" is one of my faves, probably because it reminds me of Gadget and Garfield (even the size difference lol), though I have never found Gadget sat a top of Garfs head... yet...

You can find "Furry Friends" at:

Coloured in with Promarkers:
Cat: Apricot, Ginger & Spice
Dog: Cool Grey 2, 3 & 4
Box: Cocoa, Henna & Chestnut

Forget Tricks!

Halloween is def all about the treats ;) hehehe

So I seem to be a week behind my 2 Cute DT buds, but I blame this on the dire state of my craft room! However I spent a good couple of hours doing a major blitz on Sunday (mainly just on the junk) and getting together some order! Enough order in fact to find space on my desk to make this tag using Candy Corn Bat

Coloured in using promarkers: 
Bat: Violet, Lilac and Lavender
Candy Corn: Ivory, Mango and Plum Preserve
Outline: Twilight Sky

Background of tag was coloured in with Distress Inks:
Salty Ocean, Peacock Fathers, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Soot Black

Some white metallic paint through sequin waste and a spritz of Tattered Angels Marshmallow

Possibly one of my favourite tags I've made :D

Anyway, I'm off to get in a tub which is similar in colour to Candy Corn Bat!
See ya Kt x

Crafty Catz DT Call

Happy Sunday everyone!
I am still trying to digest last nights enormous amount of takeaway, so couldn't sleep! Once again, what should I do...


This is my entry to the Crafty Catz DT call (found here: http://craftycatzweeklychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/dt-call.html)

Follow the sketch they've provided, I decided to use what was on my desk.  This pre-coloured tiddlyinks image with matching background has been floating around for months now and works well with the sketch provided :D A bit of card, ribbon and bling, wham bam thank you maam and you have a cute emo cupcakey card! 

Now I'm off to try and sort out my craftroom... Eeek :-s

Handsome Boys

So what do you do when you've slept in the afternoon and then eaten a gross amount of takeaway in the evening to the point you hurt...

CRAFT lol 

Here is a pic I've been meaning to do for ages, however first attempt last year I ended up ruining the perfect sheet of paper I had *sob* oh well, this kit from Creative Craft World also fits the bill :D

Halloween, bonfire night (in the UK) and Thanksgiving (in the USA).
The nights draw in, the air becomes crisp and clear. Love it :D

Now this weeks theme is supposed to be Halloween, however I was
so taken with this cute image "Pumpkin Love" that I ended up making an Autumnal tag!

You can purchase "Pumpkin Love" here:

Handsome Moustaches!

I got a very manly scrapbook kit last month which had the most amazing
die cut sentiment on it! Which I think works very well with this picture
of Garfield that I took/altered :D 

Don't ask me why, but for a while now I have had a thing about things with
moustaches on, my favourite being a t-shirt with the saying:
"I moustache you a question!"

So when I came across an app where I could add moustaches... it was too
hard to resist and I think Garfield looks very dapper :D

This saying is so funny!

Hand drawn/cut out moustaches for decoration
