Origami Blooms

You know when you sit down at your craft table with a project in mind, but then something just doesn't go quite right so you end up with something completely different? Well that's what happened here, a misjudged measurement meant the project took a very different turn and ended in something else, equally beautiful. The… Continue reading Origami Blooms

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

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

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

Hydrangea Happy Pouch

Stampin' Up! really do design and make some absolutely gorgeous suites and thanks to the colour families they have, the embellishments and ribbon etc are always the most divine colour ways. The Hydrangea Heaven suite has to be one of the best examples for this in my opinion - I'm a purple fan, so this… Continue reading Hydrangea Happy Pouch

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!
