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

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

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

Best Suited Dad

I say this every time I showcased a masculine card - but they are difficult to design when you need one on the spot. I like to have a couple of card choices already made for when an occasion comes round celebrating a male in my life. Well Suited is the Designer Series Paper (DSP)… Continue reading Best Suited Dad

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

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

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
