Something Summery

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I’m feeling a little flat this morning as I had a lovely time celebrating my birthday all weekend and now I’m a bit sad it’s all over! Oh well, I’m sure I’ll get into the crafty swing of things.

So, even though the weather is a little on the rubbish side, I thought I would share some summery makes with you to try and encourage the sun to come out…

These floral cards were featured in the July Issue of Papercraft Inspirations.

These die-cut flowers are glued to wooden skewers and wrapped in a die-cut doily.

This is a sneaky look at my DT project for WOW! this month.

If you’d like to make something summery then please pop over to WOW! Embossing Powders Blog and join in with this month’s challenge. There’s lots of summer inspired projects from the DT.

Work beckons,

Enjoy your day,

Ooh La La!

Good morning crafty friends, I hope alls well with you all. Apologies for not blogging as much as I would like to, life just gets in the way!

Anyway, I have some cute Parisian inspired cards to share with you today….

These double tent fold cards were made for the May issue of Quickcards.

The cute stamps are Dreams of Paris by Newton’s Nook.


The papers are the Maggie Holmes Shine Collection 12 X 12″ Papers.

A New Front Cover

Hi crafty friends, I hope you’re all well and having a productive week. I was struggling with motivation yesterday but I soon perked up when the latest issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine turned up. I was really pleased to see one of my cards had made the front cover…

It’s always lovely to see something you’ve created make the front page and it gave me a bit of a boost yesterday.

The six projects were made with this month’s cover gift, the Garden Party 3-in-1 gift collection.

The set contains two embossing folders, this gorgeous stamp and matching papers, I loved working with it.

This issue 158 is available at your local stockist.
Enjoy your day!
