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

Heroes in a half shell…

Flashes of inspiration, I love them! That's exactly what happened with this card. I had made a differing turtle card (which will also be on my blog) and whilst making it, a TV show I watched as a small child came to mind. If you are a child of the 1980s / 1990s (or had… Continue reading Heroes in a half shell…

Simply Elegant Magnetic

This was actually the first project I made with the Simply Elegant Suite when I received my pre-order. It was meant to just be a play around that got me my crafting mojo back, but it turned out to be a nice project that I really liked and so here it is. I've changed a… Continue reading Simply Elegant Magnetic

You are so turtle-y loved!

Whilst I love teeny tiny small project, I do love it when I can create a large project - something that requires multiple pieces of card and can fit plenty in it. As you can see from the picture, that's certainly what today's project is - it barely fit in my photobooth! But I felt… Continue reading You are so turtle-y loved!

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.

Berry Best!

Every now and then you need a teeny tiny project to come into your life and remind you that they're just as cute as their large project counterparts. My inspiration for this cute little clutch bag-esque design was from Angelina over at Intatwyne Designs who made a very similar project a few years ago now.… Continue reading Berry Best!

Snowflake Domed Splendor

Hands up, how likes an abnormal shaped box? Or something that is a little different to the norm? Well, today's project is certainly along those lines. Now I'm not the first person to make a box like this, and I've seen far too many to credit a single person. So I thought I'd try my… Continue reading Snowflake Domed Splendor

Christmas Takeout Box

Awwww, how cute is this little box? I'm absolutely in love with the takeout dies, they're so dinky and so easy to put together. I can see these being used for my work colleagues come Christmas time as the production line needed for multiples will be easy peasy. Another new item in the Autumn /… Continue reading Christmas Takeout Box
