~ H{ippity} Hop! ~

Time for another hop with the {ippity} gang! I created a spiral pop-up card using {ippity} Music of my Heart and Just Wanted To Say. 

My large butterfly came from a butterfly die.

Now that is actually brown in colour, although it does look purplish! I used a journaling block from Just Wanted To Say and added the sentiment. Instructions from the inside of the card can be found on the SCS resource site. 

I stamped the musical notes from Music From My Heart set at the back of the spiral.

Quite a fun card to make. Thanks for dropping by and have a great week ahead!

~ H{ippity} Hop! ~

Two weeks ago, I was blogging how delighted I was at the start of a 2 week Easter break. Today, it's the last day before I go back to work and the boys go back to school. Gosh, time sure went past pretty quickly. Shame that all good things have to come to an end! The only thing with breaks is that it does impact on my scrapping time as I do spend more time with the boys and less in my craft room. 

Played for the first time with an {ippity} stamp set and create a card: 

Patterned paper is by Basic Grey Kioshi collection. Added a homemade rosebud in the middle of the flower.

Now that routine is about to get back to normal, hopefully will have more time to play. Until then, have a great week ahead.

~ H{ippity} Hop! ~

It's a bank holiday here in the UK and the start of an Easter break for me. Gosh, it does feel good not to have to get up early. Thankfully my boys aren't early risers either! 

Recently my boys played in a violin concert and I was fortunate to be able to capture that moment and turned it into a LO: 

This 4x6" LO was created using a Scarlet Lime Feb10 kit. I made use of {ippity} Music Of My Heart set as it fitted the theme perfectly. 

My next project is a tag using Fishy Philosophy. 

I sponged the background using distressed inks.  After stamping the 'tree', I coloured in using a glittery pen to make it shine.

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you had a great Easter and have a good week ahead!
