I blinked! and somehow September slipped away before I could find my feet for the sketchPLATE. I’m scoring it up as an “its 2020 just roll with it” month … … moving on to October’s sketchPLATE Saturday AND the all new sketchPLATE Saturday podcasts. Overall, this page is kind of intended to be is a florist’s dream come true; the finished page bubbles and froths with flowers! …

It almost feels as though August pounced upon us yesterday and yet it is, incredibly and for all intents and purposes, over. Which leads us directly to another sketchPLATE Saturday. Time for a brand new, completely unique digital scrapbooking template! In many ways, the sketchPLATE for August is all about that glitter!…

Following on from yesterday’s post … if you’ve been into the Design Shop over the last month you will have noticed that there is a new release out.

If you’ve been into the Design Shop over the last couple of weeks you will have noticed that there is a new release out.

Designed to coordinate with and extend the iconic One Day at a Time :: Petite Collection, this follow-up Collection is in part inspired by the life changing events and experiences of the year 2020 thus far…

After a bit of a break due to imbalance of power issues (aka my batteries are not charging properly) … welcome back to this month’s sketchPLATE Saturday! The sketchPLATE for June is a little more visually complex than the previous one in that the layering is based on four blocks in a grid on the page. When I was pencilling out the draft a couple of months ago I was playing around with the idea of adding…

Happy Saturday morning everyone and welcome back to another instalment of sketchPLATE Saturday! For today’s sketchPLATE I decided to create a birthday themed page in honour of my Logan’s birthday. Logan is my miracle child having been born 15 weeks prematurely, so his birthdays are a very big deal for me every year … every day actually … but especially on his birthday. Here’s what I came up with to celebrate…

Welcome back to another instalment of the all new sketchPLATE Saturdays! Today’s sketchPLATE is a sweet little number to showcase a photo with a backing of five skinny paper strips. The single photo is framed with an embellished cluster to draw the eye to the right of the page from the negative space along the left hand side providing the counterpoint of focus to the photograph’s subjects…

I had the best time designing this set…
