Something Old, Something New



Hello,
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you had a good weekend.
My friend Amanda has started a new venture.

Scrap Rat


A lovely crafty store specialising in all vintage scrap goodies.
It's very early days still, the online store only went live yesterday and there's still lots more goodies to be added. Please pop over and take a look though.

Amanda kindly asked both myself and the very talented Tessa Buys to design for her.
I then received the most amazing package of goodies to play with.
I have made quite abit already. The frame above was my first project using the script papers, cards, lace and the vintage typed words.



Not only is everything so unique and wonderful to play with, look how it arrives.



Everything comes so beautifully packaged. I had to grab the camera before I started opening it all. It all looks so lovely. Things like the packaging really make a difference I think.
There's also free p&p within the UK and some special offers running right now.
So good luck Amanda, I hope the new venture really gets off to a great start.
Visit Scrap Rat here.

This then leads me to Amanda's other baby, The Studio.
A new challenge was launched yesterday. Scrap your perfect day.
I'm always telling Ade that I would love to take him to New York.
I went years ago before we were together and I know he would love it.
It's such a perfect place for him.
Shopping, coffee shops, a bit of sightseeing.
Visit the Studio to see what the other's came up with and you can join in too.



I'm in the midst of painting the kitchen. I spent all day painting yesterday. Everything is white. I love it. Top coats now, I'd really like to get it finished and cleaned before school later.
Wish me luck : )

Wow, the Scrap Rat stuff is so beautifully packaged! I love what you've done in the frame, very 'you'. Cool New York page, too xx

Great projects. That frame is so fabulous, I like the playing card tucked in there.
And your New York layout inspired me when I saw it on the Studio blog, I have a London themed fairytale layout in mind now! Will hopefully complete it in time to join in at the studio! xx
