Planner stamping - May here we come

Planner Stamping - May here we come


A change of look in my planner this week to welcome May, and surely the beginning of the better weather here in the UK.  The cute fairy works really well in the lighter colours.

Well, what a week we have just had here in the UK, it snowed Tuesday and Friday,  Yet yesterday was so glorious and sunny, wandered around Brick Lane market in T-shirts.  Super tired today though


So here is this weeks spread.  I  have used a digital image from `All Dressed Up Stamps` printed on to to sticker paper and coloured with Copic alcohol markers.  I have used the little fairy from the lawn fawn set  to follow the theme.  Both backgrounds were sponged on using dye inks, the blue was a Distress Ink in tumbled glass and the green was Stampin` Up`s cucumber crush.

I can`t say I was thrilled about the 2015 - 2017 Stampin` up colours but actually the cucumber crush has really grown on me.  They certainly have some interesting new stamps coming up in the new catalogue that I am looking forward to using in my planner.

Here in the UK the first day in May is the `May Day` Bank Holiday.  So we are all lounging around before the rain arrives.  This `May Day` image I have cobbled together with some of those tiny £1.00 alphabet sets that you can buy in most craft stores.  The stamps surrounding May Day are from a US company who sell tapestry stamps.  The teeny tiny fairy is from a UK company called Card-io.  Always a sucker for a fairy stamp.

Once again I have used the `List it` boxes from studio L2E but this time I have used one of the filler stamps to stamp a washi type border, which seems to work well with the actual washi used.  Using A5 inserts means that space is at a premium.....  


You will notice that I decorate in to Sunday`s space...I hate planning Sundays lol....But I now have this fabulous new stamp from Rowena at Tiny Stamps Big Plans. 

Bring on #slothsunday

 Unfortunately the Tiny Stamps Big Plans shop is closed right now because Rowena is `geauxing`.  However, you can find lots of info on face book

Have a good week everyone xx
