Hambly fun

I love Hambly, as a lot of you know and have quite a collection of their products. I decided to stop collecting and use some on this layout! I am so excited about their new collections - coming very soon - the dressforms and lace, transparencies - I am visualizing a mixed media set with that for Sew Somerset!

We did a guest member lift at AMM this month of the incredible, Carrie Ferrier. Her clean, gorgeous style always inspires me. You can see her layout and the other DT lifts here on the AMM blog.

I was trying for a free-style feel on this and my wonderful friend, Steph Devlin, ran an action on my photo for me as a little suprise! Thanks, hon!! I just love her photos - she is a Photoshop genius!!

So, let me share a few of the details - I had so much fun with this layout! Some bubble wrap paint dots and layered white transparency -this is the All Mixed Up.

I framed the photo with part of the transparency an stitched it down and lifted it a bit for dimension. The felt is Prima and the chipboard leaves - Pink Paislee with some glimmer mist - The little frame with the butterfly is my favorite!

A side view showing some of the dimension and layering.

Some misting with Tattered Angels (cinder) and I filled a couple of the circles on the paper with some Hambly woodgrain rub-ons. That was a little tricky - lol

Let me plug my class one more time: I am so excited to invite you to join me tomorrow for my first class at A Million Memories! Just be registered at AMM and the class will be on the boards on Tuesday morning!

The yard sale is over and was successful in two ways - I cleaned out a lot of clutter and made a little money! We are all hot and tired and ready to spend Labor Day relaxing. Hope you enjoy your Monday!



  1. Another gorgeous LO Lucy, I love this free-style! I've never worked with Hambly products, but they are on my wish list (which is growing day by day LOL).
    Enjoy the rest of your day!
