Make a Medallion

Hello there,
IT'S FRIDAAAAY !!!! This week has been a long week, things have been so slow in the studio that I have been close to tears, but its coming along.
Sharing a card made with one of the new releases today, the set is called Make a Medallion and its a layering style one.


Now the cool things about this stamp set is that IT'S ABSOLUTELY FREE, spend £45 or more in my Online Shop between today and end of March and you get to choose it FREE !!



Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso and Island Indigo were the colours used and I took them straight out of the Moroccan Designer Paper colour scheme


Rimmed pearls, Burlap and Lace  ribbon and a few splatters with the Wink of Stella were enough to complete this project. Hope you like it :)

Now do you want to see some progress pics of the studio ? Honestly I should have taken some today as we are a bit further forward but I didn't get a chance, these are from a few days back.


So windows are all trimmed and plastered, holes for the lights cut in, there's even paint on the ceiling as of today, and we have a toilet space !!! 

        

This is the view from the other end of the room and as you can see my chief inspector is taking his job very seriously, honestly there's more plaster dust on his paws than there is on the builders :) He loves all the commotion, and has now built a right bromance with one of the guys. 




I am hoping that some pretty stuff is going to happen this weekend as I can't see much improvement ( I am kidding of course) even though I keep telling them that I want to move in.
Have a wonderful weekend see you again next week.
much love Monica

Reverse Words New kid on the block

Hello there,
I hope you are doing well, if you stopped here for a blog post yesterday I am sorry I did a Facebook Live instead on my business page about some new Product Releases this month. If you wish to connect with me via Facebook follow this link.
The new and very gorgeous choices and I am showcasing one of them today.


A new stamp set called Reverse Words and I have to say while I love the coloured glimmer papers (probably everyone's favourite) I really like the style of these words and I only wish we had MORE of them. 

They are just gorgeous and lend themselves well to a variety of techniques. I kept it really simple as I didn't have lots of time but wanted to have  play with them as soon as :) I paired it with the yummy Jar of Love stamp set and matching framelits. 


The colours used are Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay all from the Brights Colour Collection.


What do you think about these words? do you like them?
Thank you for joining me today I will see you soon with another cute project and an update on the studio. Till then much love and xxxx's
Monica
