My Lovely Life! Layout by Helen Tilbury






Hi there Purple Pumpkin fans :-D  Hope this week is treating you well!  Helen HERE sharing my entry into the Once Upon a Sketch challenge this month, using lots of Purple Pumpkin product.


Can you spot all the goodies??  There are small, large & extra large covered buttons, a crochet doily flower, a resin flower (see top right), a ribbon flower (see centre), part of a craft tag & some twine


Can you see I had fun layering everything up?  I sure did!


When using your Purple Pumpkin fabric buttons a really cheap & easy thing you can do is repeat the circular shape with stamping.  Here I just dipped the core of a used tape roll into some brown ink to create the circle shape then added a bling dot to the edge of it. 


Up top there I used part of a craft tag - which I inked then doodled.


That lovely coral coloured resin rose comes from Purple Pumpkin too!


The gorgeous ribbon rose is another Purple Pumpkin superstar, sadly no longer available, but I have linked you up to some super fancy ribbon flowers that are similar.


If you take a look at my blog today I have a post going up with a lot more information on how I created my background so if you are interested in that please pop in HERE and say HI!
