A couple of projects up on the blog today.
I have been playing with my new Clearly Besotted stamps and dies again and this time i have an 8x8 layout for you and a card.
I used the min love hearts stamps and matching dies for these projects and you don't have to use them just for Valentines Day as you can see here.
I love ink drips and i love to add lots of colours so i grabbed my DecoArt Acrylic misters and went for it. I used my Clear Snap cats eye ink sets to match all the colours together using these lovely textured stamps.
I chose these photos as they are of my Nan's last birthday so they are very special, its still a tough topic to document and i tend to use photos of her when she was still well and vibrant. This is why i have a scrapbook so that we can remember those who are no longer here.
Its really hard to deal with a family member who has cancer.
The drugs affected her mind and in the end i'm not sure she knew who we were. Most people have the worry of whether or not the treatment will work but we had to deal with all the mishaps that happen when the mind decides to go missing in action, as well as all the visits to the hospital. It got to a point when she had enough and refused further treatment its a really tough decision but it was last one she consciously made.
I know everyone wants to scrap happy memories but we have to face the difficult ones too so that we can begin to heal. I shared this because i want others to know that they are not alone and that grief doesn't magically disappear.
And here is a little thank you card for listening
Its really simple to make as i flicked ink over the card base and wrapped red jute around it, I cut out the mini hearts in craft foam and stamped over them before slotting them in between the jute.
Thanks again xx
