Prism Congrats

How amazing is the new Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate? I couldn't wait to get my hands on a pack of it - not only because it contains purple either! The pack contains two different colours, Highland Heather & Rococo Rose, both equally beautiful. My box is made from Highland Heather and during my Facebook Live,… Continue reading Prism Congrats

Fabulous Patterns

Layered cards are my new "go to" when I hit a crafty block, you don't need much inspiration around you to make one. You just need some nice paper and a sentiment to bring a beautiful card front together. Or as I chose for this card, an excuse to use some paper that I hadn't… Continue reading Fabulous Patterns

Ombre Day

Now I've made no secret of the fact that this paper has to be my absolute favourite from all of the Sale-a-Bration events that I have been a demonstrator for - I just love it! The colours, the paper patterns, everything. Especially as one of the four colours is Blackberry Bliss! My project was going… Continue reading Ombre Day

Strawberry Best

I am falling in love with the Berry Delightful and Berry Blessings set that come FREE as part of Sale-a-Bration. At first, the thought of fruit on a card didn't appeal to me and I preferred the patterned sides of the paper. But the more I look at it, the more the fruit draws me… Continue reading Strawberry Best

Golden Perfection

One of my favourite combos is Black and Gold and I absolutely love when I can bring all the co-ordinating items onto a single project like this one - ribbon, embellishments, embossing powder - all matching to really bring the box to light. The acetate acts as a slider on the box for added wow,… Continue reading Golden Perfection

Bermuda Birthday

When I get stuck in a phase of using the same colours, I take a good look at my ink shelves and take five colours that I haven't used recently and use at least one of them on the next project. I did go through a stage of using Bermuda Bay all the time, it… Continue reading Bermuda Birthday

Floral Thanks

I first made this box on the day my pre-order from Stampin' Up! arrived. The grey background on the paper with the bright colours instantly drew me in. I didn't know what I was going to make, but knew it had to be with that particular pattern. The grey background contrasts beautifully with Coastal Cabana,… Continue reading Floral Thanks

Best Suited Dad

I say this every time I showcased a masculine card - but they are difficult to design when you need one on the spot. I like to have a couple of card choices already made for when an occasion comes round celebrating a male in my life. Well Suited is the Designer Series Paper (DSP)… Continue reading Best Suited Dad
