Mini Chocolate Jars

In the past, I haven't been the biggest fan of the packaging that Stampin' Up! has sold. Not because I felt the packaging was rubbish or because I didn't like it - but because I felt I could make my own. However, Stampin' Up! then decided to release cute packaging like these jars that form… Continue reading Mini Chocolate Jars

Printed Welcome

Now isn't this a fabulous sheet of patterned paper? I'm not a massive fan of pink (or animal print), but this piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) really stood out to me when I flicked through the packet. The best part?

Heroes in a half shell…

Flashes of inspiration, I love them! That's exactly what happened with this card. I had made a differing turtle card (which will also be on my blog) and whilst making it, a TV show I watched as a small child came to mind. If you are a child of the 1980s / 1990s (or had… Continue reading Heroes in a half shell…

Simply Elegant Magnetic

This was actually the first project I made with the Simply Elegant Suite when I received my pre-order. It was meant to just be a play around that got me my crafting mojo back, but it turned out to be a nice project that I really liked and so here it is. I've changed a… Continue reading Simply Elegant Magnetic

Gothic Elegance

I've always had a bit of gothic streak, stemming from my teens and whilst it isn't as prevalent now, I still love the gothic style and some of the flourishes that form part of it. The Simply Elegant suite caught my eye the first time I flicked through the new Annual Catalogue pages and it… Continue reading Gothic Elegance

You are so turtle-y loved!

Whilst I love teeny tiny small project, I do love it when I can create a large project - something that requires multiple pieces of card and can fit plenty in it. As you can see from the picture, that's certainly what today's project is - it barely fit in my photobooth! But I felt… Continue reading You are so turtle-y loved!

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

Pastel Love

Sometimes I really struggle for inspiration and sometimes inspiration comes at the craziest of times. My daughter Mia is currently studying Art as part of the option set she chose for GCSE and their current material of choice is watercolour. It was one of her recent pieces of work that inspired this card and the… Continue reading Pastel Love
