UKScrappers Spring BlogHop


Hello!  Whether you’ve come here from either the UKScrappers thread or from Suzycad’s blog  or you’ve dropped in on me any other way,  Welcome!  Feel free to take part in the hop, regardless of whether you are a UKS member or not.

I’ve slotted in to fill a gap, so no project from me, but I do have this little set of retro printables for Project Life style albums for you.  The PDF has three pages – this set of 3 x 4 cards, the same set as landscape 4 x 3 cards, with swapped-around backgrounds, and a sheet of mixed orientation with no text on them, so you can add your own.


The retro ladies (and the bunny from the BlogHop badge) are freebies from The Graphics Fairy, a great resource for all sorts of digital images, from retro, like these, to French typography, to vintage and more.  It’s a place that is well worth a visit! There are some that would work with a stampmaker (or indeed even as a digital stamp) for example, or for image transfer projects,  home decor projects, as well as printed to make journaling blocks or embellishments.

The backgrounds are also digital, from Background Labs.  Another fab resource, with the retro patterns just one of many, many choices.  You can use them for creating your own digital scrapbook papers, as backgrounds for ATCs, or maybe printed and punched as little embellishments.

I hope you find them useful!

Now hop on to Jen’s blog here and see what she has to inspire you! When you are done, be sure to pop on to the UKS thread here and leave a reply for a chance to win the random draw of a £25 gift certificate to the UKS sponsor shop of your choice to be drawn tomorrow  from those who have commented TODAY 15th April 2013 on every blog in the hop AND in the UKS thread.  And be on the lookout – some of the BlogHop stations will offer a prize to be drawn from one of THEIR OWN commenters, so take note as you hop along!
