Annual Catalogue offers one of my favourite ones in Boho Indigo, not only do you get everything you well need except ink and glue in a single product, but you can buy refill kits to continue making more… Continue reading Boho Blue

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

Happy Suited Birthday!

I mentioned on a post a couple of weeks ago that I struggle when making masculine cards. Which is still the case and even with a gorgeous suite such as 'Well Suited', I still find it takes me some time to bring a project together. However, this card came to me quite quickly and was… Continue reading Happy Suited Birthday!

Coming Home to You

I love trying out new techniques and whilst I have done sponging before, I've never paired it up with masking at the same time. So I thought I would give it a shot! The moon on this card was masked prior to sponging the gorgeous shades of blue background, to give the effect of a… Continue reading Coming Home to You

Penguin Birthday

My son turned 11 last month - he's absolutely penguin mad, so his card every year is always penguin related in some way. The launch of the new Autumn / Winter was perfect timing for me to make his card this year, especially with the inclusion of the Freezin' Friends Bundle. The gorgeous penguin from… Continue reading Penguin Birthday
