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

Sometimes the prettiest things happen by accident, you had something completely different in mind or you didn't know what the finished project would look like but you had a play anyway. Today's card is one of those moments, whilst on the phone to a friend I was distracted by the conversation taking place and randomly… Continue reading Artistic Thanks
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
Sometimes you just need a project that you can put together in a short amount of time as you have a last minute gift you need or perhaps you're working in bulk.

Everybody loves getting more value for their money - which is what this project originally was themed around. I had started to make a One Sheet Wonder and got about 6 cards in when I didn't like how the remaining few would look, so I stopped. The pictures of the other cards haven't made it… Continue reading Hand-penned Thanks

Each and everyone one… Continue reading Artistry Pumpkin Boxes

How is already that time of year? Schools are getting ready to break up for the six weeks of summer (for those year groups that have been able to return following Covid-19 closures). 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
Good Morning - how are you all? Can you believe that it is already the end of June? Me neither! It's incredible just how quickly 2020 is disappearing! During lockdown, I found myself at a loose end and turned to crafting more to pass the time - I found colouring in therapeutic, so made a… Continue reading Butterfly Thanks
I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too. Rainbows are pretty and are one of my upline's favourite things. Each month, myself and other members of the team are rewarded for our achievements - be this a title promotion or hitting a sales target. This card was my thanks for those… Continue reading Rainbow Thanks!
Do you ever find you get stuck in a cycle using the same colours over and over again. The purples, blues and reds get used a lot in my craft room. But the greens and pinks are always left on the shelf - especially green. My upline (the fabulous Pootles) once set the team a… Continue reading Showcasing Green!
