About Me

My Photo

Hello everyone my name is Sharon I live with my partner Steve, my mum Joan and our little dog Izzy, who's a right little diva.  For me being creative it as natural as breathing, and digital is away I can do both without having to have a lot of stuff around me.  I have only been digital scrapbooking for a few years, but I have made hybrid cards for friends and family for over 20 yrs. It was a way to keep my sanity after a stressful day at work. 

We live in a small village just outside of Salisbury, in England and I love it around here even though I've only been living here for a few months this place feels like home...

I am very privilege to be a Design Team Member of a number of different designers: Creative Victorian Designs, Aimee Harrison’s Design Studios, Key Lime Digi Design, & Serif CraftArtist 2  I have also been asked to be a FB guess CT member for Keep in Touch Designs.

The Studio 5th Year Competition...

Week 2: Growing Up

This week we were given the challenge to use the kit: Little Acorns Grow by Nibbles Skribbles & Jilbert's Bits of Bytes

Here's my take on the week 2 challenge.

We went to Chester Zoo last year and this is one of the baby elephants I thought this would be a different take on the idea of growing up...

All re-colouring, and changes made to papers/elements are done through my software Serif CraftArtist 2 no template or other kits were used this is all my own design.

The Studio 5 year Competition...

Week 1 - Paris

I did this competition last year and really enjoyed it so when I got the newsletter saying it was time again for this years competition I though oh yes count me in.

We have been asked to create a page using a sampler from the design team plus any extras from the Cafe in Paris range on offer this next week.

So here's my page for week 1:

This is an old family photo we have no idea who he is so I thought I'd make a page, and design it like he was a long lost love...

Created using elements from the Cafe in Paris Sampler by theStudio Design Team, plus elements from Cafe in Paris - Aimee Harrison and Cafe in Paris - Valentina. I have mainly kept to the colours of the sampler apart from recolouring one paper and the splats but I've worked to the colour palette of the kit. Punches, stitching and effects are from the software I use Serif CraftArtist 2.

Font used is: Alako-Bold
No Template has been used as this is my own layout

Step Right Up....

It's week 2 at GingerScraps and here is my entry for this weeks layout:

My journaling reads:

This is Steve about to eat a X X X L German Hot Dog. It was so long that it broke in half before he had chance to eat it so he was left with half in the bun and the other half in his hand. It didn't stop him though and he finished all of it. It was so good that we have said we will have to have this again next year...

Kits use are: County Fair Carnival by Ponytails Designs and In the Kitchen {bundle} by Little Rad Trio

Font used: CK Greeting Card

The stitching and punch effects are settings from Serif CraftArtist 2
