Pockets with Pizzazz

My GO-TO pile of embellishments.....every now and then I spend a couple of hours sorting out some home made embellishments. This pile is made up of stamps that I stamp out onto matte photo paper and punch out, ready for adding to my pages. I find it so much easier to do this en-masse, rather than individual times for each page. I'm getting to know which ones I use the most and can easily stamp more of those.
I have an article in the Scrap365 Oct/Nov issue out on the 12 Sept with more of my homemade embellishments. Most of them are very basic and easy to do, I think sometimes we just lose inspiration or more likely forget what we have available in our own mountains of stash !

 Week 21

Week 21 consisted mostly of torrential rain & walkies, with perhaps a holiday for someone and lots of healthy food ! I love that FaceBook allows you to peek into your children's lives, although sometimes I wish I hadn't, they have waaaayyyyy more fun than me !

Week 22

Quite a relaxing week for a change, kids relaxing and not listening to me - nothing new there ! Cat had kittens and another festival for one of children - (although at 25 are they still classed as children?). Loved Tom's picture of his alarm calls to get up for a new job !!

That's all folks.............hope to see you in a fortnight and look out for the PWP feature in the Oct/Nov feature of Scrap365....if you want to see more PWP in the magazine, there are lots of other fabulous designers to see and inspire you, leave a message for the editor.....WE WANT MORE !!!


  1. Ooh, love those punched out stamps: will totally be nabbing that idea x

  2. YUM YUM YUM!! I NEED those you take orders??? LOL Another stonking great post Elaine; fabulous photos!!! Thank you so much for knocking it out of the park yet again...and your request has been noted ;) xx

  3. This was really helpful. Thank you. I'm always at a loss to know how to embellish my pockets. I think it's made harder by a lack of suitable stamps! Does that mean I need to go shopping?

  4. What are the circle stamps you have used?

    1. Hi, mostly Technique Tuesday - Ali Edwards & Some Pink Paislee sentiment series.
