Time Flies...

I don't know where the time has gone since I last posted a couple of weeks ago.
Have had to do some gardening stuff as next week have men in cutting down some trees and putting up new fencing.
Spent last Friday moving my craft room around - its no where finished yet as just using the existing furniture at present, but I think at least I now know the layout of what I want.
Where I had a makeshift desk before, the afternoon sun was in my eyes so not very ideal.

Its a horrible blustery day today so going to make up for missed time and probably do a couple of posts today..or maybe this will just turn into an extra long one - sorry.

Last week when I was gardening I snuck in a quick dig-scrap page when having a coffee break using a lovely kit called 'Autumn Delight' by MLDesigns and I thought this was ideal to show off my lovely little feathered friend.

Also I found time to have a quick experiment for some male cards.
I always have trouble thinking of ideas for men and boys.

Next below are some digi-scrap pages I made with the latest kit from
Algera Designs called 'Projection'



The image used on 'Star Quality' page was from 'the Graphics Fairy' and all others from 'The sum of all crafts' other than 2 of my own photos on Christmas and 4th page down.

I loved using this digi-kit as it has so many useful elements in it and could be easily used for both female and male themed projects.
I made the pages using Serif Craft Artist software and some items have been recoloured and effects added.

In between gardening, my lovely husband also found some time to make these or this?
You could slice it up or tear it into rolls.
It has Stilton on top and was very tasty along with the homemade he made too- yummy!

Thanks for stopping by... sorry for the long post today..
have a lovely day x


  1. Hi Gill, Wow love your layouts they are Super x
    Then as I scrolled down I saw the scrumptious home baking and now am feeling hungry ;)
    Hope the gardening has been going well and that you will enjoy it when all completed already for Spring/Summer xx

  2. Beautiful digi layouts, Gill! I haven't done any of that for ages. as for the bread, well, my stomach is now rumbling!

    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Sorry I haven't been around much lately but all my energy (what there is of it) seems to be taken up with the house move. Glad you like my introductory Romanian photos - just wait till you see the textiles!!!


  3. Such beautiful layouts! I haven't tried digital yet, but when I look at your work, I want to try. Your hubby's rolls look so delicious! I wish I had one now with my tea! It has been very cold here, so I hope to get my plants and herbs planted this weekend. I bought them but they are all in my porch for now.

  4. I'd say you might not have been blogging, but you certainly have been creative, especially considering the time you are spending in the garden. Well done, Gibby!! (And hubby, too, with the baking!) Thanks for coming to see me earlier today! Enjoy the rest of your week! Darnell #37

  5. Hi Gill,
    All your projects are beautiful, I particularly like your male card.
    Just wait til I show my DH what your DH does!

  7. Hi Gill
    these are so stunning and the dimension to each one is amazing, they have so much life to them it is difficult to believe that they have been created on the computer. You are very talented and show how digi crafting is where it is at, thank you for sharing I am looking forward to learning from the expert.

  8. Love your layouts and what a clever hubby too

  9. Hi Gill - wow you have been busy! Gorgeous layouts, I'm hopeless with digi! I'm very impressed that you've made so many layouts with just one kit. MMx
