guest designer at Handmade by Suzanne!!!

well, it's a pretty exciting month for me - the lovely Suzanne from HBS asked me to be guest designer for November - of course I said yes!!  How could I not!!  
I was sent a kit with gorgeous Christmas papers and embellishments from Echo Park - Seasons Greetings  this range is so nice to work with - great colour tones and a touch of vintage.

 This is just one of the LO's I've created - this picture was taken a few years back when my little man was just eighteen months old.  It came together very quickly - the papers all co-ordinate nicely together and my title is actually a strip from one of the papers.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... using the chipboard accents and twine, I've created a bunting ...
 ... cute little chipboard buttons ... I just adore that vintage paper ...
... more chipboard accents ... and the journalling ...
I've inked all the edges of the card stock and chipboard - it really gives a little more depth and I can't seem to do a page without doing just that!!

Pop over to Handmade by Suzanne to view all the lovely papers and embellishments in the Echo Park range - you won't be disappointed.  HBS is my one-stop craft supply shop - there are always the latest products available, the best prices and the quickest postage I've known!!

I'll be back through-out the month to bring you more inspiration from Echo Park!
Thanks for coming by and happy crafting.
