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

Happy Suited Birthday!

I mentioned on a post a couple of weeks ago that I struggle when making masculine cards. Which is still the case and even with a gorgeous suite such as 'Well Suited', I still find it takes me some time to bring a project together. However, this card came to me quite quickly and was… Continue reading Happy Suited Birthday!

Well Suited Hooray

Coming up in the new Jan to June Mini Catalogue, there is a suite that is completely male orientated and I can't get enough of it! I'm absolutely rubbish at making cards for men no matter what the occasion is. So for those of you who like me, you're in for a great surprise when… Continue reading Well Suited Hooray

Simple Sunday #6 – Freezin’ Fun

I am so sad to be seeing this bundle retire, although expected it's still sad to say goodbye to these gorgeous characters. I'm such a fan of cute character stamp sets, especially ones that I can colour in with blends. My children love crafting with me and these sets are always a hit with them.… Continue reading Simple Sunday #6 – Freezin’ Fun

Coming Home to You

I love trying out new techniques and whilst I have done sponging before, I've never paired it up with masking at the same time. So I thought I would give it a shot! The moon on this card was masked prior to sponging the gorgeous shades of blue background, to give the effect of a… Continue reading Coming Home to You

Snowflake Domed Splendor

Hands up, how likes an abnormal shaped box? Or something that is a little different to the norm? Well, today's project is certainly along those lines. Now I'm not the first person to make a box like this, and I've seen far too many to credit a single person. So I thought I'd try my… Continue reading Snowflake Domed Splendor

Hooray for You

I was recently challenged to use the colour Pink more as it's not a colour I reach for that often, unless it's Magenta Madness. I took part in a team event that was based upon the Curvy Variety bundle and so used that as an opportunity to dip out of my comfort zone and used… Continue reading Hooray for You

Happiest of Piggin’ Birthdays

How awesome is this giant sentiment in the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set? Whilst I love little sentiments that I can punch out and add to projects, I also love large sentiments which I can make a focal point on a card. The font is absolutely gorgeous! I wanted to feature it alongside a background… Continue reading Happiest of Piggin’ Birthdays
