Sarah Kay Sofia Wishes

Happy New Year to you all!  I hope 2015 is going to be a heck of a lot better than 2014 (um I think I said more or less these same words last year??).  We had a very quiet one and were asleep before the clocks hit midnight.  So, because I went to bed so early I was up before the birds this morning and decided to go through some of my stamps.  I hit the Sarah Kay box first and well, you know how it goes, next thing I was printing off papers and making a card.  I think I am allergic to sorting out ha!

The stamp I used is Sofia Wishes.  And my wish is that Stampavie would start doing Sarah Kay stamps again, I miss them soooooo much.


I discovered a digi paper designer on Etsy and I fell in love.  This burlap paper is just simply sublime.  I didn’t even bother to print the files from Photoshop, I just dragged the file into Word and job’s a winner.  I’ll list the products and links at the end of the post for those interested.


Loving the chipboard sentiment, it was a dark chipboard colour when I started out, I just sponged some white gesso on then drew in the sentiment and scroll with a pencil once dried.


Ah, I nearly forgot to list the copic colours
