The great thing about Stampin' Up! is you… Continue reading Watercolour Friendship

Now isn't this a fabulous sheet of patterned paper? I'm not a massive fan of pink (or animal print), but this piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) really stood out to me when I flicked through the packet. The best part? This is a sheet from a pack of paper that you can earn for… Continue reading Printed Welcome

Heroes in a half shell…

Flashes of inspiration, I love them! That's exactly what happened with this card. I had made a differing turtle card (which will also be on my blog) and whilst making it, a TV show I watched as a small child came to mind.

The Simply Elegant suite caught my eye the first time I flicked through the new Annual Catalogue pages and it… Continue reading Gothic Elegance
