Sincere thanks…

Hi everyone , I have another card to share with you all.  As you know I do normally use my Spellbinders grand squares but sadly they are no longer available, so I just cut the base layer at 7 inches square, the second large layer is cut at 6 inches square, my finished card measures 7.5 inches.  The dies I have used are, Spellbinders bracket border one, joy crafts flourishes border. For the aperture, I used Tattered lace essentials rectangles, I like these as there is only a small gap between the sizes and you get a lot of dies. The sentiment is Anna Griffin. Flowers from my very large stash…  Just on another quick note, I have decided to step down from the Tattered lace design/sample team, I would like to wish Stephanie and the team all the very best and Thank you for the opportunity of making samples , its been great seeing them on TV. xx

Hi everyone…

Hi everyone, Well Im back to normal this week, back to work. I always find the next few months a little grey and dull after the build up to Christmas, I am however looking forward to seeing all the new dies that are coming out, (need to win the lottery) x
So onto todays card, Spellbinders grand squares, joy crafts flourishes border, Marianne designs flower mirror, both dies i got from Icon crafts UK, paper and image form Live and love crafts, flowers from Wild orchid crafts and Annamarie designs. Pearl swirls from creative expressions. The 2nd photo shows the same card but with a sentiment instead of a photo, I like both versions.

Merry Christmas…

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Thank you for all your lovely comments, its been an extremely difficult year for me as some of you know I lost my Mom this year to cancer, so Christmas for me will be a mix of emotions. Crafting has been a big help as its been an escape for me at times, I’m glad people enjoy seeing my creations and taking inspiration from them, hopefully I will carry on making cards in 2015. So love and best wishes to you all and I will see you after Christmas. xx

Baby keepsake box…

Morning everyone, Something a little different today, I love decorating boxes and Im also into playing with clay at the moment so I’ve made a baby keepsake box, The plain mdf box I got from the MDF man at the craft shows, decorated with paper from my stash, the baby is made from a mould (from ebay) with clay, made the hat and the blanket with clay and decorated with flowers I got from wild orchid crafts.
Please feel free to browse my Etsy shop where you will find this box and others I’ve made.
