How to make a simple and stylish card…

Sometimes, you need a simple and stylish card, and one that doesn’t take forever to make, especially when you just want to reach out to a friend to tell them you are thinking about them.

I wanted to play along with the Global Design Project GDP#333 this month, but when I saw the colours I must admit my heart sank a little! I am not really into greens, but when […]

Kerchief Card Kit…

I thought I would pop on and share this cute little card kit with you. It is one of the items that you can get for free at the moment when you spend over £45, and I had a lovely time making these cards. Aren’t they striking! Everything that you need comes in the kit, even little glue dots, though I did add a bit of Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue as it is my adhesive of choice! You can make two different types of cards, and 4 of each of these, so 8 in total… that’s not bad for a […]
