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

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.

Plaid Daddy

Mixing and matching is a big part of the fun when crafting. Grabbing different colours, stamp sets, dies etc and bringing them together to create final project.
