Beautiful Leaves

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

Hexagon Kuwaii

Birthday Party Live – Project #7 It's the last project of the Birthday Party Live series!! It's gone by so fast! I thought I would end the series with this cute Kawaii inspired hexagon pencil pot. And you don't need a lot to make one! Each one turns out differently because of the random stamping… Continue reading Hexagon Kuwaii

Never Ending Birthday

Birthday Party Live - Project #4 Yesterday was my birthday, so I had to make sure the project done on my birthday was a special one. Neverending cards have been around for some time - they're certainly nothing new BUT I have never tried to make one myself, so what better occasion? I went for… Continue reading Never Ending Birthday

Monochrome Love

Do you often find that making a masculine card is more difficult than making one for a female recipient? I know I do. I try to set myself a challenge that 1 in every 10 cards must be purposely masculine - this way I've always got a masculine card for when I need it. I… Continue reading Monochrome Love

Glimmer Snowflakes

How pretty is this card? I can't take the credit at all, I only glued the bits down - but the star of the show has to be the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper, its so glittery and a lovely colour. I had to make it the star of the show, so didn't want to do… Continue reading Glimmer Snowflakes

Way to Go!

Some evenings, my children and I like to stamp images which can be coloured in with Stampin' Up! blends and just spend some time colouring together. This card uses the 'Moving Along' stamp set and a set of images based on vehicles. We spent some time colouring them and adding bits of details such as… Continue reading Way to Go!

Somebody Loves You

The start of another week - how are we all doing? Today's project showcases a stamp set that may have been forgotten due to all the new goodies that have been released in the new Annual Catalogue (and I'll be honest, I had forgotten about it too!). The Parcels and Petals set has some great… Continue reading Somebody Loves You

Mint Friend

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

Butterfly Thanks

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
