Making the Most of: Stamping Write Markers!

I had so much fun last week doing a daily card so I thought I would carry it on! I came up with an idea of focusing on one tool/stamp set and Make the Most of it! This week I used the Stamping Write Markers! So for the next 7 days, there will be a tutorial showing you a way to use the Markers! Hope you enjoy!

Mothers Day Inspiration Day 7

Happy Mothers Day!! Today is the last day of my inspiration week and I have gone for a special card today. Today’s post is picture heavy, but I hope you like the card! I have so enjoyed making cards for my mum and looking at my favourite pictures of us together. I have really felt close to my mum and I hope she knows how special she is to me and I how much I need her. I love you mum!!

Mothers Day Inspiration Day 6

Before my mum moved to Qatar, I organised for us to have some professional pictures taken. Today’s picture is from that day out. I really love all the pictures from that day, but this one is my favourite. I was terrified when my mum moved away because I didn’t know what would happen when I needed her. I feared over nothing because even though we are over 3000 miles away most of the time, she is Always there. In fact, it’s probably brought us closer.  (Though mum, Lexie misses you terribly and thinks you should come & move in with us 😉 )

I used the Sheltering Tree set to create the pink dots. (It’s supposed to be leafs!) I used the sentiment from Mums Love again as I think it’s beautiful!

P.s. You may have noticed this card technically came out on Day 7… Well I accidentally forget to press Publish yesterday, so when I opened my laptop today, here it was ready to go! OOps!!

Mothers Day Inspiration 5

I’ve had quite a tough week this week. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster! But my mum was there every step of the way! And looking back, she always has been! My mum is my first call whenever I am stressed or happy. News isn’t real until I have told my mum!!

Today’s picture always makes me laugh! I am clinging onto the blow up horse for dear life! But as the sentiment on the card sentiment on the card says “Were in this together”.

Mothers Day Inspiration Day 4

Today’s card is inspired by, you guessed it-my mum! Even since I can remember my mum has inspired and encouraged me to follow my dreams and live life to the full.  Thanks to her I have done some pretty amazing things and traveled to some incredible places. Today’s picture was taken in Vietnam. We went backpacking there over a year ago. It was a fantastic holiday and I hope some day soon I will finish the scrapbook!!MD 04

The stamp set I have used today is Feels Good and Everyday Eleanor. The sentiment may not seem like a typical Mothers Day sentiment. However, I recently read this quote: “Strong Woman-May I know them, May I raise them, May I be them.” I certainly know a strong woman in my mum and this card just makes me think of her. 🙂

Here is a close up of the card, I do love a bit of bling!

Mothers Day Inspiration Day 3




Today’s Mothers Day card is also a thank you card- after all, what is Mothers Day if not a day to say thanks?! I’m thankful to my mum for many reasons, way too many to list and I am sure there are even more reasons I am not even aware of! Anyway, thanks mum, I love you lots!

You may have guessed I am a creative type of person, so I like to make presents were possible. While I can’t actually give my mum this present, I hope she like it none-the-less.
