Favourites From 2013

Good morning!  I am a little late with my look back at my favourite creations from 2013 but I always like to do this post, so, better late than never.  I always find it so difficult to choose just one favourite from each month!  I hope you enjoy another look at the projects I have chosen and if you would like further details on any of them just click on the photos to visit the original blog posts.


This is the front cover of a photo album I created of a holiday to France.  I wanted it to look like a French Gite.


I created a lot of scrapbook layouts last year.  I love the colours on this one of my little girl.


I love it when an idea works don't you?  I wanted to create something special for my Dad's retirement and was thrilled at how my 3D deckchair idea turned out!


I love the softness of this card from April.  I created the orchid myself by copying some real ones I have in my house and was really thrilled with how it looked!


I think this card has to be my all time absolute favourite of any I have made.  It is a stair step card and yes, it does still fold into a box to give to the recipient!  The only problem being I can't part with it lol!


Another layout for my favourite June creation.  I love these photos of my children when they were little so much.  They depict their love and sense of fun perfectly!


I had such fun creating this beach scene card.  Another one I cannot part with lol!


I've noticed as I've looked back through my 2013 creations that I have kept many of them out on display around my home!  I created this 3D canvas especially for my dining room which I totally refurbished in the summer.  I'm still hunting for a frame for it as I want something ornate and chunky - something which seems to be elusive without paying a fortune lol!


A lot of my cards seem to feature pink, pink, pink so I love this card from September featuring beautiful soft china blue colours!


I broke my usual rule of finding the papers before colouring the image with this card so was really pleased that I managed to find flowers that matched my colouring to bring it all together!


I've made a few cards now in this style but this was my first attempt at it and I love the prettiness of the doily edgings.


I didn't make anywhere near as many Christmas cards last year as I have in previous years.  I love the teal and white colour scheme on this one!  I have decided this year that I am going to make at least one Christmas card every month so that I can avoid giving out shop bought ones again!  Watch this space to see if I actually manage to do so lol!
