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!
Sometimes a simple card says its all. You don't need to throw every craft supply at a card for it to get the message across, simplicity is beautiful too. This card demonstrates exactly that! I am in LOVE with the Gathered Leaves dies, the detail they have on them for a small die is absolutely… Continue reading Beautiful Leaves
Do you often find that making a masculine card is more difficult than making one for a female recipient? I know I do.

I then have to remind myself to scale things back and keep it simple. Today's card is… Continue reading Patterns of Happiness

For my eldest son, this is his last year in Primary School and he moves onto the scary world that is High… Continue reading After Eight Teacher
I do love making cards using just two colours - they're so simple and use very little supplies! Today's card was made using a stamp that's not often used from the Beauty Abound's stamp set, the bubble style motif is often overlooked in favour of the flowers or butterflies. I think the same can be… Continue reading Mint Friend
