Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine…

Available now, while stocks last, for just £20 is this amazing Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine. A box filled with gorgeousness that you can use to create lots of projects. Then fill the box with yellow (or other) goodies, attach the included stickers to the box and send it to someone in need of a little sunshine. What a fabulous idea. I opened the box today during my Facebook Live, and made four of the eight cards as shown in the photographs on the box. I then used the rest of the bits and pieces to make three other cards, […]

Exploding Candle Box…

I absolutely love making these – the gorgeous exploding candle box. It is a design that I came up with a few years ago when I was making things to sell at the local craft fairs. I sourced some fairly inexpensive candles and really jazzed them up – they proved very popular so I thought I would share the design with you here today. My candles are approximately 2 3/4″ diameter at the widest part and 3 1/4″ high. I wanted to use the Forever Greenery Designer series paper becuase I find green a very calming colour, just perfect for […]

Multi-fold Card…

I have got something a little bit special for you today and I am calling it the Multi-fold Card. I came across a video on YouTube, with a fancy fold that I rather liked the look of, but the video was in a foreign language so I don’t know the name of the creator, the name of the fold, or even the measurements! I did know that I wanted to try and create something similar though, so I set about designing this card, with measurements to suit me. The Multi-fold card folds up beautifully into a slim style card, with […]

Flower Wreath

Well it is that time of year again, as we approach June and the launch of the new catalogue, that I look at my paper stash and realise that I really should use up some of these pretty papers! I bought the Perennial Essence papers when they first came out, because they just look so pretty, but for some reason I haven’t really used them. I think they were waiting for the right project, and this flower wreath is definitely it. To make the wreath, you will need 12 pieces of paper measuring 15cm x 15cm to make the outer […]

Desk Tidy…

I have been making these desk tidies for a number of years now, they are so quick and easy to make, and cheap too. I just love how you can change them up if you fancy a change of decor, and they look stunning on a desk filled with pens and stamping supplies. What’s even better is that the paper I have used to make this tidy is now reduced to just £6.45, for a whole pack of 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper, filled with images that every crafter needs, pens, scissors, ribbons, and the most gorgeous backgrounds […]

Bird Ballad Frame

I want to share something with you today that I made some time ago now, almost as soon as the last annual catalogue came out I think. The Bird Ballad suite was one of my first purchases, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on every single item in the suite, they all just co-ordinate so beautifully together. The stamps are simply gorgeous and the papers…. well, I am lost for words. I love making samplers, and really enjoyed this one, on a canvas frame. The frame itself is 10″ x 8″, to give you an idea of size. Sadly, […]

Spring Wreath…

I know it doesn’t yet feel like spring has sprung but I wanted to make something bright and cheerful so that when the sun is hiding I can look at this and remind myself that brighter days are just around the corner. I have not used any stamps for this project, just two punches are all that you need to make this gorgeous piece of home decor. I have used the medium daisy punch and the leaf punch (both £15), punching out 36 daisies from Whisper White card and about 30 leaves from Pear Pizzazz card. To get colour onto […]

Rest and Relax…

I love making covered notebooks! So often I hear people say that they are sometimes reluctant to give their cards away because they are proud of what they have made. I am totally in this camp and am slowly but surely getting better at giving them away but often just want to keep them and look at them. If this is you, how about making a covered notebook, that way you get to continually look at what you have made, every time you need to write something down. The measurements will depend entirely on the size of your notebook, but […]

Little Ladybird…

At my last workshop I was so lucky to receive a few orders from my customers, so that I managed to bag this cute little stamp set ‘Little Ladybug’. It is a host only stamp set and it is completely FREE with an order over £275, or workshop or party orders over £275. Isn’t it adorable?? I had such a fun time colouring in the little ladybirds, and that flower is so vivid in all three of the colours I coloured it with. I used the Stampin’ Blends to get some amazing shading. The treat bag below is one that […]
