Hello world!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by danemi1 @ 9:38 pm

!Hellllooooooooo – Anybody there???? If so come on in – make yerself comfy whilst I pop the kettle on for a brew, one sugar or two and do you fancy a slice of chocolate cake – yummy scrummy in my tummy!!!

Anyway as I was saying Hellooo – suppose I had better introduce myself I am Elaine aka on the boards as danemi1 – I am a wife to 1 – mom to 2 and self confessed scrapaholic.   This wonderful hobby led me to meet a great girl called Steph – she runs Indigo Mill – fantastic online stash shop and retreat organiser extrordinaire. My friend Carol and I went to the first retreat she had organised in Sept this year and wow what a great time we had – we met a load of really great girls and wow could they craft – their work was and is fantastic – so totally in awe of them all.

In particular Rosie aka freycob and Claire aka Silver Custard, ever since we have returned from our weekend we have been getting to know each other more chatting away into the wee hours on the good old tinternet – have even had a videocall – wow have you tried that – it is such fun.

Anyway I was absolutely jawdroppingly amazed when Steph asked me along with Rosie, Claire and a lovely lady called Dee(who I am going to meet in January) to be on her design team – wowser. How delighted was I and then terrified what if I do my layouts and Steph thinks they are awful   aagh – why are we always so critical of ourselves. We all do it don’t we.

Anyway enough waffling, without further ado – here is a little taster for you – lovingly although scarily created with the fantabulous stash that Steph sent to me

I hope you enjoy and please feel free to hop on over to Stephs Shop Blog Indigo Mill – it really is wonderful



All of the above have been done using the gorgeous Crate paper fromt he Sweet Branch collection – I am very much a tactile person and it has to feel good as well as look good and wow this paper is awesome and the colours are gorgeous – to be honest I dont think I have done them justice here – the light isnt brilliant – winter evenings to blame – will try and retake photos this weekend!


Next is a layout I have made using the papers from DCWV Nursery Stack for girls – again from Stephs Shop along with some of the lush Bazzill that she sells
