Halloween Magic

This year's Halloween paper is absolutely gorgeous and whilst Halloween is still almost two months away, I find myself using it again and again (you'll see it make an appearance in my Birthday Party Live Week). For this project, I wanted to showcase the gorgeous bats and the giant label you get as part of… Continue reading Halloween Magic

Wild Hedgehog

This stamp set was the first one from the Annual Catalogue to make it on my 'wish' list. I absolutely love hedgehogs and this one is so cute! I love the sketched nature of the stamp set and the free reign it allows me for art materials - the imagery would suit Watercolour Pencils, Stampin'… Continue reading Wild Hedgehog

Triangular Shades of Purple

Happy Hump Day to you all! I hope you are all keeping safe and well? Today, I wanted to showcase some dies recently introduced in the Annual Catalogue. I love basic shapes - squares, circles, rectangles - and we have a lot of these available as dies with stitched effect too. However, we didn't have… Continue reading Triangular Shades of Purple

This bag uses a single strip of glue (for the sentiment), which means they can be stored flat until you're ready… Continue reading Gradient Blue

Unicorn Magic

So, I have a confession to make! I wasn't the person who designed and made this card - it was my daughter, Mia. She is a fan of unicorns and absolutely loved the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) when it arrived in my new catalogue order. The Hippo Happiness Stamp Set is her absolute… Continue reading Unicorn Magic

Tealights with Comfort & Hope

Recent global events have us all looking at things differently - for me this has crossed into the way I look at crafts. My posts earlier this week involved making, and subsequently posting, cards for team members who I would normally see every day at work. A 21st birthday and the welcoming of a new… Continue reading Tealights with Comfort & Hope
