Brand New Couture

Hello crafty friends how are we all? I’m still in Peterborough as I have my final Couture Birthday World Launch show tomorrow. As I’m not working today I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of the makes from my shows so far……

This was the first demonstration card I made in our launch show on Friday morning. I had Dan Bancroft as my presenter and he was lovely. This was made using the Couture Elegant Opulence Collection.

This gorgeous summer house was created using the Couture The Shrubbery Collection. Each collection comes with a CD Rom featuring 144 papers and a style guide to make creating even easier.

I made this card in my show on Saturday, I was on with Rachel Pierman who was hilarious and the hour seemed about 10 minutes long! This was made using the Favourite Treats Collection.

There is still one launch show to go so please join myself and Dean Wilson on Create & Craft at 12pm tomorrow. If you’d like to have a look at all these wonderful collections then pop over to Create & Craft.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

More Gorjuss Girls

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? I’m having a cheeky day off today and am off to London with a friend, can’t wait! The next couple of weeks are totally manic for me so I’m looking forward to a relaxing day before the madness begins!

As you know, I’m a huge Santoro Gorjuss fan and I couldn’t resist having another craft with her at my docrafts demonstration at the weekend…..

For this card I’ve used the Santoro Gorjuss Rosie Die Set from the In The Garden collection. I’ve added extra dimension with flowers and butterflies punched from matching papers.

For this Spring inspired card I’ve mixed the Gorjuss In The Garden 6 x 6″ Paper Pack with the XCut Floral Parenthesis Cut & Emboss Folder. I’ve also used the XCut Flower Jar Small Die to create the foliage.

If you’d like to get some inspiration and get to see all the lovely new docrafts products then you can find your nearest demonstration at

Have a great day,

Easter Weekend Crafting

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all this week? My week has been quite sedate for a change so I’m enjoying the slow pace until the madness kicks in again!

I had two docrafts demonstrations over the Easter weekend so I had plenty of opportunity to have a play with the latest docrafts products……

I couldn’t resist having a play with the Santoro Gorjuss In The Garden collection and created another simple card using the XCut Bird Wreath Die with Gorjuss papers.

I created this ombré effect card using the Creativity Essentials Moroccan Tiles A6 Clear Stamp Set which I stamped using three blue ink pads. I then added embellishments from the docrafts Moroccan Blue collection.

Finally, I enjoyed some paper piecing using the Santoro In The Garden 12 x 12″ Paper Pack and the Time To Fly rubber stamp for this Easter inspired card.

If you’d like to pop along to a docrafts demonstration your latest event can be found here.

Have a great day,
