Two more gorgeous LOs and a SALE!

This first LO is by KIM and is soooo adorable. What a cute photo and beautiful colours and just check out that little chippy owl. OMG how cute is he?
Kim has used a journaling circle and a yellow Lil Leapers button on this LO.
Im almost our of the frog fabric so once the next 3 sets are sold................Thats all folks!
I can get more of this fabric if the demand is there, so if you have any requests for a different design or theme please let me know what you'd like to see in the store and Ill see what I can do.

Next up I just wanted to share this gorgeous LO by a very talented customer and scrappy friend of mine Tracey.
Tracey has used some polka dot , spotty buttons and Archie rounds on this LO.
How AWESOME is this. Love it Tracey.
Thanks for sharing girls.
Onto LRR news.............................Ive decided to keep the store updates to once a month.
I have had a few customers tell me that they are disappointed that they just placed an order and then I added more products to the shop that they wanted to purchase.
So it make it fair for every one and not to mention easier on myself I will now be launching the new products once a month on the 15th.
You may get a sneak peek before hand though just cause I cant help myself.
I have some more bottle tops and some felt embellishments and new button designs coming soon so if all goes to plan you should be able to find them in the store June 15th.
We are also having a sale on all the kits in store. So that's the Vintage and the Mini Inspiration kits.
Some of the fabric flowers are on sale too so this is a great time to stock up on those products.
You can find these sale items in the SALE section of the store.
Keep your eyes pealed when you read your Scrapbook Creations or Scrapbooking Memories magazine for LRR products because to be published very soon you will find some Fabulous LOs from our customers, design team.

More new additions.

Im back. LOL. Just thought Id pop by and share what Ive been loading in the shop today and last night.
Sunshine Roses and Vintage Milk and Juice Tops.
These new roses are my favourite fabric flower so far. I am really happy with the way these turned out.
I am in luuuurve with these Vintage milk Tops too. They are so lovely and come in a huge range of sizes and designs and they are made of the strongest card board almost like a chip board.
How awesome would these look framed in a set along with my vintage soft drink labels.
I hope you'll find the time to stop by the SHOP and check them out.
Lots more new things coming soon and I cant wait to share them with you. TFL.

More LOs to inspire from Leanne and Kim.

I love the fun and funky retro feel of this gorgeous LO by LEANNE.
Leanne has used some vintage tickets, drink labels, some yellow bits and pieces from the yellow 'Mini inspiration kit', some vintage 'Archie rounds' and some journaling circles.

Next up is this beautiful LO by KIM. I think this LO compliments that stunning photo perfectly.
Kim has used 'Vintage Archie' and 'Book rounds, a blue bingo card, vintage tickets and some journaling circles.
Kim has also used a 'Vintage German Die Cut' featured in this last photo.
These will be making an appearance in the shop again very soon.
Ive been busy making and ordering new stuff for the shop and Im hoping to have some sneak peeks to share with you soon so stay tuned. TFL.

New bottle tops.

Just popping by to show you the 2 new sets of bottle top that Ive just finished uploading in the shop.
They feature pretty vintage images of butterflies.
Bottle tops look fantastic on cards scrap book pages or mixed media projects, especially when placed amongst a cluster of pretty flowers.
They also look great framed in a shadow box frame or made into a pendant.
There are 2 ways to turn bottle tops into pendants.
1. adhere a bail to the back with a strong glue or jewellery adhesive
2. take a nail and hammer punch a hole in the the outer rim then take a file or rasp and file the back of the hole flat to remove any sharp bits.
Bottle tops can even be glued to a ring to wear on your finger but please remember not to wash the dishes or shower whilst wearing it as they are not water resistant.
