At the end of release week (Wednesday 27 June) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.

My Project for today!

I had some fun colouring up a new stamp by Elisabeth Bell called Blossom Berry Sitting Pretty – I really loved colouring her long hair and the little scene was fun to colour too!

Now as you scroll down you will likely get a shock! You see I got excited over the weekend and have designed some new chipboard products – OK that isn’t shocking – BUT as you can see I have managed to cram as much stuff onto my project as possible – what my Design Team refers to as ‘Desk throwing up on project’  LOL  Those of you who follow me will know that I am usually a plain and simple girl and after a couple of layers of DP, some ribbon and maybe an embellishment or two I consider the project finished!

But this time… I thought – hang on let’s go all out. And I kept finding ways I could put something else on.


Seee?!!  I told you it was crammed with STUFF!!  haha  You’ll find a full list of what I used at the bottom of this post.

I did have a lot of fun decorating it but admit I was a bit worried about how it looked and because I am not used to it, I had to check with my girls to ask if it looked OK before letting this go public!! haha

I just love the new KITE sentiments by  Anne – Take Flight – and especially because I can see them being perfect on top of ‘scenes’ where I don’t decorate the card much!! haha

Oh I also decorated the inside and filled the box with some lovely paper roses. 🙂

My other half says to me “What’s with the roses?” – my response – “Because it looks pretty!!”  Really… do I need a reason other than that?!


Thanks for popping by today. I hope you like my little I mean CRAMMED PACKED project!!  hehe  Be sure to check out the other gorgeous creations by the lovely Whimsy DT and Special Guests!
