..emerging from the horrible mess

Today I've moved on.  I'll be conducting a workshop, the fixings for which you saw on my desk yesterday.  So that's tidied that lot up.  Underneath were the Valentine's papers that my clever Sissy designed. She is Stephanie of Luscious Life Studios.   I appointed myself the Luscious Life Design Team member and it all kinda came home to roost and I had to put my money where my mouth is.  So I've been playing, and how I've enjoyed just doing it for the sake of doing it.   

Here is Kate.  She's my niece.  The little journaling cards are actually reduced PL cards that I downloaded from Luscious Life Studios - there's a 'freebies' tab.....

I've tried to use the papers for non-valentinsey stuff in my scrapbook.  Mainly because in 29 years, I don't have a Valentine story to tell yet.  Hmm.  But at least my deprivation proves that you can buy a set of something seasonal and not be trapped in the season.  I think, anyway!

And here is my other sister, Sally, and her son, my only nephew.  
Being very patriotic.  I love this picture!

And then I sort of felt obliged to make some cards because - well, I can.  And you know what - I decorated the inside too, and totally forgot to photograph it!

All the papers and embellishments are by Luscious.  Here's another:
Quite busy, non!  Well, it's only once a year and there's a message to be got across!

There's a couple more I could show you but I think Steph is planning to put them on the Luscious Life website or blog, so I'll leave you to go visit in the next few days if you're fascinated by the papers, the story, my family,or the perm I had in the early 1990s.  
I know I've over linked, over abused and overdone the publicity, but hey - it's family. And also, this doesn't break my oh so up myself rule about endorsing something that I don't think is up to it.  I'm loving the Luscious Life!

The cards - and the layout- are all fab and I commend you for playing just for you! Going to a craft show at Stevenage on Sunday - you know what that means... ££££ and more new stash.... !

OOps, technical difficulties... not sure how I deleted my comment above. Trying again.

Wow! How exciting to see what you created with your sis's lovely Valentine collection. Of course we are super happy to have you as our head Creative Team designer!

Well done, self appointed DT member! Your projects look great!

Nikki Davey said...

Loving the papers & especially the layout of your sister Sally.

Very nice

If I had a product, and saw the lovely pieces you made using MY stuff instead of Luscious Life "stuff," I'd have you on my DT team too. Self appointed or not. Those cards are fantastic, but I love how you show examples of non-Valentine items, too. Truly lovely. So, who's the HERO???? Could it be Mr. D?

CoventryAnn said...

All great projects, love the layouts (but then I'm biased!)

Neet said...

In my book it's your blog so you do what you want. Loving the pink and I am not a pink fan but these pages are super duper and I like your V cards very much.
Hugs, home again Neet xx
