Printed Welcome

Now isn't this a fabulous sheet of patterned paper? I'm not a massive fan of pink (or animal print), but this piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) really stood out to me when I flicked through the packet. The best part? This is a sheet from a pack of paper that you can earn for… Continue reading Printed Welcome

Gothic Elegance

I've always had a bit of gothic streak, stemming from my teens and whilst it isn't as prevalent now, I still love the gothic style and some of the flourishes that form part of it. The Simply Elegant suite caught my eye the first time I flicked through the new Annual Catalogue pages and it… Continue reading Gothic Elegance

Artistic Thanks

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

Origami Blooms

You know when you sit down at your craft table with a project in mind, but then something just doesn't go quite right so you end up with something completely different? Well that's what happened here, a misjudged measurement meant the project took a very different turn and ended in something else, equally beautiful. The… Continue reading Origami Blooms

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
