15 loves {January 2015}

Welcome to the next in the series {15 loves} for 2015 based on the original concept by my beloved friend, Pam, back in January 2013. I shared my loves (mostly late) all through 2014 and now it's time to see if I can continue the series through 2015. I hope you will come back each month to see if there is anything in my list to inspire you. You can see all my {14 loves} {here} and now all my {15 loves} {here}

I hope there's something in here to inspire you or maybe just make you smile.

While January's list may be a day late, I promise to try to get them up on time in the months to come :-)


You might know that I'm a huge Tiffany fan. So I totally and utterly adore the Concierge of Love theme they have going on over there in the run up to Valentine's Day. Not only do the gorgeous videos feature plenty of pretty stuff, they are also full of fluttering paper hearts and other paper goodness.

Check out the Concierge of Love over at Tiffany's for some beautifully produced videos here


I love a good spoof and this one made me laugh out loud. I know you can relate!


I appreciate you might not be in love with Boxer puppies as much as me, but this Pinterest find is too much cuteness to let pass. Don't you think?

And if the t-shirt fits... I think I have to get one made like this - too funny

I think this is one of the prettiest cards I've seen in a long time. The link under the photo is to a blog post where she posts three similar versions of the same technique. I need to try this - just gorgeous.

Found at Stamp Away With Me


January's Scrapabilly kit was a total stunner. I know I say this every month but this one is really just super. I was sceptical about the lilacs and purple shades but I honestly can say that each layout came together like a dream. I'd buy another if I had enough snowy photos!

Yes, that's me...

This Instagram photo by my adopted baby, scrappy sister, Charly caught my attention right away. It's just gorgeous and seems to sum up everything I think about when I think about London. I'm hoping to get back there at some point in 2015 and I'd love to get a shot like this of my own!


I saw this new paper line/company linked up on Facebook and fell in love with the "Up in the Clouds" collection right away! Click on the link below the photo to see the full range. Beautiful colours agains a bright, clean white background, a smattering of gold, pretty designs and a collection that I think belongs in my stash. Who could ask for more! I look forward to seeing more from PinkFresh Studio.

Studio Calico posted this mood board as a sneak and a hint for their Februay kit which will be revealed on 27th January. This has my name all over it. Shame I don't order stuff from the US due to the postage costs!

See the sneaks here and the mood board here


Fellow Counterfeit Kit Challenge Master Forger Stephanie, who blogs at Skyline Paperie is simply a wonderful scrapper and such a lovely person. She has a beautifully designed blog and is a far better and more regular blogger than me. I don't get over there often enough nor do I always comment but she's inspirational and creates wonderful layouts and cards. I'm sure she'd be delighted if you popped over to say hello!


The Belles are back again jingling their way through another year of Christmas card inspiration and I'm thrilled to be back on board. I've already made 4 cards for Christmas 2015. This year I WILL get ahead of the game.

I'm a member of Simple Scrapper and have to be honest that I just dip in from time to time. But I love the amount of content, inspiration and general guidance you get there as a member. There's a lot to be found over at their website for non-members too, including the Story Starters Challenge to kick-start your creativity. It's definitely worth being a part of this gentle, inspirational community and even though I'm not a very vocal or even active member of the group, I feel at home there. If you've not checked Simple Scrapper out, why not head over there and download some of the freebies to get a feel for what's on offer.

Can you guess...

Id love you to share your own {15 loves} lists with me. Why not link up in the comments below?


  1. Scorpio is the best sign ever! Lots of other great picks here as well. I am loving softer color combinations lately, and that card is a fabulous example.

  2. Time to counterfeit that SC kit-I agree the mood board is stunning! And are you going to Disney world? Lol!

  3. I know where you are going! Funny that your countdown has "my" number in it...329. And, in Pam's email! There's something about me and that number.

    1. That your number is there is ever so slightly surreal, don't you think? Destiny at work. :-)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
