One of my projects for the new La-La Land Crafts release is a small book. As this release has a lot of fantasy elements I thought a fairy tale book would be appropriate! This is my first time making something like this so that was fun. I was inspired by a fellow LLLC DT member, Irene, and followed her tutorial here. Below you can see the photos of the front and inside. You can find the whole new release here.
Another Christmas hippos card, yey! decided to keep the colours very plain and just add a subtle colour to the sky and then a dash of bright and bold red to the hat, cane and sentiment!

Ok, so I am a little bit late to the party this time. Life took a rather unexpected turn a couple of weeks ago leaving me in a bit of a daze and all projects were put on hold until I felt like doing anything with it. All my card making things were as they were on the table and the floor and although I had completed a few cards for the new release, I never got a chance to blog about them. Until now.
La-La Land Crafts had the most adorable Christmas release out this month. I love the hippos so much. Who doesn’t need Christmas hippos, right?! They have some cute other stamps, too, and I’ll show some of those in posts the coming days along with some really cool dies. Besides, we all know by now that I love Christmas, right?

This week I got to see loads of cards by the super talented Elin! She’s a master at clean and simple cards and I thought it is about time I make a card that is properly inspired by her. It was about time I made another clean and simple card anyway!
So, a cluster in a corner, loads of open space (although with waves and not white). I even used blue card stock for the base instead of white!
We’re still showing off the new La-La Land Crafts release. I decided to go with one of my favourites, the whale from the Jaws Because clear stamp set. The background is also made with one of the new stamps, the Seas the Day background stamp, which I used Memento Ink on in the Summer Sky colour.
Here is a photo straight from the front of the card.
And a photo of it laying down, with a close-up of the colouring and the cluster.

For this release I’ve tried to make a variation of cards, so there are some CAS, some layered, some shakers, some with transparent areas etc. For this one I decided on a reasonably clean and simple card. I’ve used the My Anchor background stamp to make the strip on the side, and the other background stamp, Seas the Day to make the biggest sentiment. All the animals have matching hats and uniform!
I’ve coloured up all the stamps in the set, as you can see below, just to give you an idea of how they can look.
