Watercolour Friendship

Being a crafter means you explore different techniques as a way of finding the best finish for your project. I haven't done much of this lately, so decided to branch out into water colouring by ordering some Fluid100 paper and some water painters, and diving straight in.

Heroes in a half shell…

If you are a child of the 1980s / 1990s (or had… Continue reading Heroes in a half shell…

You’re out of this world!

Eeeeek - how darn cute is this card? Now I'll be honest, this card first grabbed my youngest son's attention before it did mine. He is absolutely mad about anything to do with space - rockets, the planets, stars etc. But when you look at it, how can you not add it to your shopping… Continue reading You’re out of this world!

Succulent Contours

From the new 2021-2023 Incolors, I think Soft Succulent is my favourite. I'm not normally a green fan, but there's something about the muted green shade that I simply cannot stop using. When the demonstrator pre-order opened up, the first things to go in my basket were the new incolor ink pads, card stock, ribbon… Continue reading Succulent Contours

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. This particular project is a great example of that - where originally I wanted to make a plaid top to sit on a box lid, but then somehow… Continue reading Plaid Daddy
