A very simple card on the blog today, one to make if you're running out of time or perhaps want to mass produce them for family / friends. This card takes just 3 supplies plus ink and adhesive. Amazingly quick to make and can be reproduced in a number of colour ways! I chose to… Continue reading Merry Merlot Christmas

Boyish Birthday

Do you find that you struggle to make male orientated cards or projects. Those where a flowery Designer Series Paper (DSP) just won't suit the recipient. As a mum of three children, two of those being boys, I sometimes find myself struggling for a theme to make a card for them. Now they're no longer… Continue reading Boyish Birthday

Thankful Cabana Thoughts

Coastal Cabana is a colour that made its return during the colour refresh back in June. It's a beautiful blue, when you don't quite want to be as bright as Bermuda Bay and co-ordinates with the gorgeous Team Room Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Team Room DSP is thinner than other suites, making it… Continue reading Thankful Cabana Thoughts

Merry Christmas Glimmer

Christmas always bring out the glitzy side of me, I don't seem to use glimmer paper at any other time than the festive season. The Merry Christmas dies immediately screamed glimmer paper to me, the intricate worded dies are a good size and so take centre place on any card or project you make. Today,… Continue reading Merry Christmas Glimmer

Tone on Tone Falling Flowers

Tone on tone was introduced to me in my early days as a demonstrator by my lovely upline, Pootles. It is the amazing technique where you stamp onto cardstock with the same colour ink as the card. My example shows the GORGEOUS Highland Heather, teamed with the Falling Flowers stamp set. I don't know why,… Continue reading Tone on Tone Falling Flowers
