I wanted to bring your attention to the latest image sheet available from the lovely June at Dezinaworld, Girls Will Be Girls.Such a sweet image sheet which is available for £2.00 from Dezinaworld.
Recently I shared a post of two cards with Marie Antoinette images from Dezinaworld as the focals, well you can purchase those images for £2.50 and finally there is a sale that is bursting with image sheets.
Many of you will know that June had to step back from Dezinaworld as her time and energy were required elsewhere, to care for her dear parents. If you follow her Blog you will know that June has been dealing with the saddest of times. I just wanted to say that it is so lovely to see June return to Dezinaworld, I am sure it will be baby steps for her but she has been much missed and it would be lovely if you found the time to visit her.
Thank You for visiting this post.

When last year June from Dezinaworld sent over the most amazing Marie Antoinette images I was so delighted as she had brought together a wonderful collection of images. Immediately I made some tags, etc but it was nearing the end of the year when I set about making cards to submit.
Fast forward to earlier this year when I received my complimentary copy of The Stampers’ Sampler (Jan/Feb/Mar) and my surprise to see the Marie cards which I’d actually submitted to their sister publication, Take Ten.
Alongside June’s images I also used various Oxford Impressions stamps.
Three cards were published but I will just share two here in this post.
I should point out that the Marie images are png’s which I set against French postcards from French Kissed Postcards. That is the beauty of png’s, having the flexibility of which background to use.
I simply love this image of Marie in that glorious gown.
A fabric rose was added to the stamped bow. A slightly more mature Marie I’d say in this image. Thank You for taking the time to visit this post.
Have a lovely weekend.

This is an extra post I have scheduled before Sunday’s post which will be when I share the second of my Guest Designer post for That’s Crafty.
When June (Dezinaworld) generously sent me her beautiful Cameo images to play with I immediately set about decorating some shopping list pads, I believe this might have been November 2012, yes, as far back as then! They were something that I made as little extra gifts especially at Christmas, something that is practical for the receiver. Of course this isn’t the first time I have decorated such pads and it will not be the last.They are variations on a theme where I have repeated the use of vintage French book text, lace (some of which was tea stained) along with MOP buttons, etc.The following two are images of older girls, possibly the above two girls all grown-up!I have some cards I will share another time where I made use of June’s beautiful Marie Antoinette image sheet but like I say, that is for another time.
If any of you have been unable to trace June since the many problems she had with her Blog, you can visit her and view her wonderful art at June’s Joy.
Until I return on Sunday, have a lovely weekend.

Thank You for your visits and comments for the previous post.
Last week I posted a notebook using one of Dezinaworld’s Marie images from (Marie 7 set png) at the time of altering the notebook I also made two tags for friends. The tags work on the same idea as the notebook in that I selected the png I wanted to work with, re-sized it and set it against a postcard from French Kissed Postcards. Then, because I cannot help myself as a stamper, I added some stamping using stamps from Oxford Impressions.
I used a good quality cardstock to print onto which allowed me to be heavy handed with distressing (abrading and sanding before inking). Trims and seam binding were dyed to co-ordinate with this image. I just love the colours in this image. The second tag Trims were layered and pearls added.June had an enforced break but she is back! It always worthwhile visiting her Blog for up-dates on new releases and sale items. There is a stunning image sheet that she is promoting at the moment, I am sure it will become a favourite with many of us. The link to June’s blog is at the top of this post.

As Sunday’s post was quite lengthy I thought I’d make this scheduled post a more brief affair.
Back in July, June at Dezinaworld announced a new png set consisting of 7 Marie Antionette images., now if you are fans of Marie then this set will be irresistible.
I selected the Marie I wanted to work with, setting her against a postcard image available from French Kissed Postcards. After printing I added some stamping using stamps from Oxford Impressions. (Versailles plate). The notebook was covered with canvas which I painted and stamped, layered with lace, a paper doily then the postcard image was added trimming it with picot edged ribbon and more lace.
.The bow (Oxford Impressions’ The Dressmaker) was stamped onto found paper. A ribbon bookmark was added as a finishing touch.
Thank You for visiting today and also for the lovely feedback on the altered mailer.

When my lovely friend Penny gifted a hand-carved stamp for my birthday I knew I had received such a special gift as not only was the item itself beautiful but it was useful (William Morris would be so proud of Penny!) and something I could enjoy time after time after time. With one thing and another in life I was unable to ink it up straight away but finally I managed to make this Thank You tag for Penny.
What struck me is that the stamp accepts ink so beautifully. I had selected a chalk ink pad and was sure I’d have issues with it and would have to revert to my trust Archival but nope, it inked to perfection.
Image – Dezinaworld (Fair Ladies)
Stamp - Oxford Impressions (this is used on the tag base then I overstamped with Penny’s stamp)
Tag – Shabby tag from Crafty Individuals.
Adorn was stamped onto the tag base and then stamped onto a scrap of Melissa Frances paper and torn out to be layered onto the tag. June’s image seemed so well suited with the lady being adorned herself. I had to further adorn the image with lace, fragments of Tissue Tape and lace and a shabby bow. The bow and fabric bloom were stained with ink. Thank You for visiting this post and for your lovely comments on the previous post. I will be returning to Venice shortly, hope you will come along with me for the trip!

Did you know that June Dezinaworld has been busy creating a new 25 piece kit and not only that, the news that the Dollar Store has returned. Whenever it is possible, June keeps her Dezinaworld Blog up-dated with new image sheets/kits and of course there is the Olde Curiosity Shoppe where all the images are free for you to use in your art.
I wish I could tell you I have new Dezinaworld art to share with you but all I have is a discovery I made as I was deleting images from my laptop. I believe I made these cards when I first discovered Dezinaworld, possibly 2 years ago.
These were quick cards I made for friends, notecards, using the Spring Ladies image sheet.They appear very minimal compared to what I do now! The final card. On a personal note I am sorry I have been absent, not managing to visit your Blogs or up-date my own Blog. Personal matters have caused me to be away from the computer for much of the time but I hope this afternoon to organise posts so I can schedule them as I have lots of old artwork to share and some new pieces using Crafty Individuals newest released stamps.
As always, thank you so much for visiting. It is so encouraging when I am able to come on-line and read your wonderful comments.

I know, two posts in one day!
June at Dezinaworld has an exquisite image sheet available, Veils of Lace. Although all the images are stunning, when I viewed this sheet I was keen to use a particular image on a notebook.
The notebook is a great size at 7″x5″. I covered with artist sheet canvas which I painted and stamped with a text stamp from Oxford Impressions before layering lace. I dyed gimp a grey/green colour, mixing your own dyes is fun and costs so little money. I liked the idea of a bookmark so used a length of satin ribbon, you can see its tail in the photograph below. An ornate frame was used to create a focal for the Dezinaworld image adding a pearl bead and tiny key.
If you are interested in having the Veils of Lace image sheet for use in your own artwork then click the link at the top of the post to take you to June’s Dezinaworld blog.
If you have already visited today then thank you for taking the trouble to visit once more.

As I was tidying and organising draft posts I came across this little hanging which I really should have posted by now as it was made at the same time as “Remember, Cherish Those Moments” for Dezinaworld DT artwork last month.This adorable image is from June’s Valentine Cuties image sheet.
I layered the image with Melissa Frances paper, over stamping with a beautiful rose stamp from Oxford Impressions.Lace threaded through a heart and some more little details of a bow, torn doily and a little stamped element (Crafty Individuals).This is not the last of my Valentine artwork as I have Valentine inspired pieces to share with you for other DTs, where does the time go that the 14th is just a matter of a few days away!

This week for Dezinaworld I have been working with the fabulous Faux Cabinet Cards. The possibilities with this sheet are endless but if you love vintage and Steampunk then this image sheet is for you.
I decided to take a Steampunk route with the two cards I created selecting the image of the train and one of the women.
I had fun gathering stamps that supported this image ( stamps are from Oxford Impressions). Layering a piece of mica over part of the Dezinaworld image adds another dimension.The second card has one of the women taking centre stageadding a stamped top hat. Is she the inventor of her own life?
You will be aware by now that all of June’ s images are available free of charge. If you visit June’s Blog (link at top of post) you will see the Faux Cabinet Cards image sheet in all its glory and also all DT artwork. If you decide you would like to have those images available to use in your own artwork then all you need do is contact June requesting the sheet.
Thank You for not only visiting this post but for all the posts you have taken the time to visit. I am slowly catching up with your Blogs although for some reason, having problems here and there with word verification on certain Blogs.
I hope to see you soon.
