Inspiration and A Monthly Make


Recently with thanks to Sian I found a blog called The Felt Fairy where Annie has set a challenge to make something - anything you like - every month. Well that seems achievable so I thought why not sign myself up. It seems I'm not the only one who thinks it's a good idea because as far as I tell lots of other people think it's a good idea too.

If you would like to join in and share your monthly makes just follow the link in my sidebar. Sign up ends at the end of January and if you do agree to take part in return Annie will send you a pattern to make a felt CK 'Stanley' all the details are here

I may have mentioned that scrapping seems to be non existent here at the moment as sewing seems to have taken over but I have a need to return to paper some time soon, at least long enough to actually create a layout. Where is the inspiration going to come from? Well it seems the Boden catalogue is the inspiration of choice (what with my Christmas tags) and when the Spring edition popped through my letterbox I spotted these straightaway.

They are little sticky labels which it is suggested you stick on a page when you see something 'that floats your boat'. They would also make perfect layout titles and when I read them I could already start to see layouts forming.

Pleased as Punch * Over The Moon * Tickled Pink
On Cloud Nine * In Seventh Heaven * Blissed Out
Walking on Air * OTOTW (on top of the world)

See? Perfect!

Watch out for a layout sometime soon - I hope..........

I'm waiting for the LO and loving the new catalogue. I think I may get a wedding outfit for my SIL's wedding from it :-)

Brilliant idea! I've just opened my catalogue too and can totally see what you mean! Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do ...

Sian said...

Oh, yes! I have mine tucked away too. I'm not seeing as much to tempt me as I usually do in the catalogue itself tho maybe that's a good thing!

I'm looking forward to making Stanley next month too
