The Newsprint paper range contains a selection of printed pieces some ideal for backgrounds, some perfect for cutting images and numbers out of and some perfect for focal pieces in their own right! I've chosen a piece of book print for the background here, which I cut to make use of the vertical line. A piece of Certainly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon sits to the right of the line with the flower on top. To make this I just cut several of the flowers out of a showstopping paper from the Greenhouse Gala range, snipped between some of the petals and layered them together. Instead of a sentiment I used leaves cut with the two-step bird punch.
The sharp-eyed among you may have noticed that all the current 5/8" grosgrain ribbon appears on the Last Chance List and all this year's designer paper ranges will no longer be available after September (except the Patterns stacks). If you have favourites, this is definitely your chance to stock up! If you prefer smaller quantities of ribbon or paper, check out my special offers section.

Yesterday we had a picnic planned as a last summer holiday get together with friends so naturally we woke up to torrential rain lashing against the windows and a gale force wind howling around the house! You'll be pleased to know however that in true British spirit we did meet up and went for a bracing walk together - a VERY bracing walk in fact!
If you're constantly finding that you're not getting enough time for crafting, you may be pleased to know that Three Minute Thursday is back tomorrow. Thank you for popping in to see me today and I'll hope to see you tomorrow.
