Seasonal Shakers

Good morning crafty friends, I hope your week is going well. I had a day off yesterday so I’m back to Krafti World today! Things took an interesting turn yesterday but I cannot reveal any more information at present….keep your eyes peeled.

Anyway, I had two Docrafts demonstrations at the weekend at The Range stores in Portsmouth and Southampton and Christmas crafting was in full swing. I couldn’t resist a couple of snowy shaker cards, I just love them.

This card was made using the XCut Filigree Reindeer Bauble Die and a sentiment Mini Die.

I added cute Christmas Tree Luxury Stickers and plenty of iridescent glitter.

I created this cute snow globe card for the July Create Christmas goody bag, full instructions can be found on the leaflet inside.

Work calls!

More Festive Ideas

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all well. In Krafti world Christmas is still in full swing (although I’m making a Valentine project this week!) and I have a few more festive ideas from my latest Docrafts demonstrations.

This simple card has a Create Christmas sentiment which is embossed with white embossing powder with an inked background.

This card features one of the new cute XCut Mini Dies and Create Christmas Stamps.

This simple card includes the new Thicker Stickers and festive craft tape.

I’m loving these Create Christmas  Glitter Wooden Sentiments!

All these festive goodies are available at your local Docrafts stockist.

Cute Kori Kumi

Good morning crafty friends, how are you all? Things are pretty productive on the Isle of Wight, plenty to be getting on with this week.

Some of you may have seen the wonderful Craft Consortium Kori Kumi range featured on Hochanda this week, there was some amazing work on their from the Design Team and my crafty friend Keren Baker, she’s so talented!

Here are a couple of cards that went to Hochanda, you may have spotted them…

I just love the cute apple embellishments and flower stickers.

To create the pom pom bunting I simply threaded small pom poms on to thread with a needle and attached heart stickers on the ends.

I love this Blowing Kisses character as I’m nearly always in a stripy top, I’m quite jealous of her outfit!

If you’d like to check out this gorgeous range then pop over to Craft Consortium.

Have a great day everyone!

A Bit of Crafty News!

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all having a productive week. My week hasn’t been too manic, I’m making the most of a quiet time and coming up with new ideas etc.

Anyway, some of you may have seen already that I had a lovely bit of crafty news this week. I’ve been very fortunate to have been chosen for Craft Consortium Design Team!

I’ve had my eye on the company for a while now and although I don’t have a lot of spare time for DT work these days, I saw the Santoro Kori Kumi range and thought, “I need to get me some of that!” and applied.

I’ve loved having a play with the range this week, it’s right up my street and I’ve made a few bits for their Hochanda shows next week.

I’m predicting huge success for this company, I’m loving what I’ve seen so far. For more information on the Hochanda shows pop over to the Craft Consortium Blog.

Enjoy your day,

Christmas Is Coming!

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I’m sure lots of you have been working on festive projects for months, I know I started at the beginning of May. 

It’s now full-on Christmas craft time at my Docrafts demonstrations and I wanted to share some makes that I created at the Market Gallery in Southampton this weekend…I think my “Dog in a Box” was my favourite, mixing Anita’s Foiled Decoupage with the XCut Filigree Presents Die Set.I mixed a cute Wilson Wood character with Create Christmas Foiled & Embossed Stickers and stamp for this card.I used lots of the latest Create Christmas stickers with the XCut Reindeer Flying Mini Die for this modern card and one of my new favourite things, a matt white jingle bell.

All Create Christmas products are available now at your nearest Docrafts stockist.

It’s time to get festive!
