Soap Journal

I have recently started to make my own soap {you can read about how I got started here and here}.
I wanted to keep a journal so that I would remember what recipe I used what temp I soaped at, fragrances, dates etc. I finally got around to decorating it!


I thought soap is a rather old fashioned thing to do so my journal will have a rather vintage feel to it too. Helps that I have been dying to use these Echo Park Happy Days pp's etc too. There is a Lime Tree Creations single flower on there and a A Lil Something pin too.

Banana Split!


Mmmm don't you love banana splits. I do, especially if they are sprinkled with a bit of milo mmmmmmm

This fortnights inspiration at The Lollipop Ladies is the pic above of a yummy banana split and extra criteria is vintage.


Here's my take:

 Sorry for the dark pictures. Been so gloomy here, can't wait for some sunshine.
When I thought of vintage I thought of doilies and these yummy rose colours.
I used some Kaiser English rose pp for the base. Then some more to make a water distressed flower to match. The extra large doily is form Lime Tree Creations and will be released at there next sale this Friday! Ribbon is from last months Challenge Heaven swap.


A side view to see the dimention.


The design team call has now closed. Stay tuned for the announcement of the new team!

Fruit Salad!!!!!



.....yummy yummy

Yep first thing that pops into my head is The Wiggles!

Actually fruit salad is this fortnights inspiration at The Lollipop Ladies.
Extra criteria is round or square. I went for square.

Here's my take:

I took inspiration from the pink and green in the fruit salad. I have used Kaiser pp's, K&Co dimentional stickers and some chippie words that I inked in white and then attacked with Kindy Glitz.

The Lollipop Ladies are having their next Design Team call! You can find all the details here. Hope to see you enter!

123 Step by Step

Guess who has been asked to set Mays criteria at 123 Challenge????

MEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fire Engine Red
The word FUN
Stitching (hand, machine or faux) in your title

I have also been asked for a tute on handstitching your title!

I just love the effect of a hand stitched title. It can be a little daunting at first but adds some wonderful texture to your page.



Step 1
Find a font that you like and print it in a suitable size.
I have used Velvenda Cooler in 100pts
I like to mark where I am going to pierce my holes onto the paper so that I can get the spacing exactly where I want it.




Step 2
Colour in the back of your title like we used to do in school for tracing




Step 3
Place your title where you want it on your page.
I have trimmed mine to manage it a bit easier.




Step 4
Take a ball point pen and trace the outline of your title.
DO NOT REMOVE IT YET!




Step 5
Take a paper piercer or needle and pierce your holes where you have marked.
You can now remove your title




Step 6
Choose your thread and needle and outline your title using back stitch.


Here's my finished product!



I have used Echo Parks Playground range for most of this, a Little Boy journalling card, Charms Creations Lovely Lollipops, Lime Tree Creations red trim, lollipop and extra large doily, Lovelybugs Bits n Bobs pirate and denim button.


Now please pop on over to the 123 Challenge blog and check out the awesome work the rest of the DT has come up with!
