Makes For Making Cards

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’ve all had a good week. I can’t believe it’s Friday already, I’ve no idea where this week has gone. I’m looking forward to having a rare weekend off!

As the new issue of Making Cards is out today I’m going to share my makes that featured in the April issue… 

 These cards are made using the Docrafts Country Life range. 

  These linen look papers are really gorgeous!

This second range showcase the new XCut Cut & Emboss Folders from Docrafts. 

  I’m loving these folders, they’re so easy to use and are so clever! Simply run through your die-cutting machine and they cut and emboss in one go. 

 All these ranges are now available from your latest Docrafts stockist. The May issue of Making Cards magazine is out now.

Enjoy your weekend!

This Weekends Makes

Good morning crafty friends, how can it be Monday already? I could do with another day off! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I had a lovely Docrafts demonstration at the Market Gallery in Southampton. They’re a lovely bunch there and it was great to see my regular ladies. Here are some makes from the day… 

 I finally got to play with the new XCut Cut & Emboss Folders, I think they’re going to be popular. 

 I added some die-cut eggs and leaves to some Country Life imagery and papers. 

 This is a simple Capsule Geometric Mocha card with an XCut Mini Die Sentiment.

All these goodies are available at your local Docrafts stockist.

Have a great day everyone!

Hi crafty friends, it’s a bit of a miserable day here on the Isle of Wight, I hope it’s a bit better where you are! My week isn’t too manic so I thought I would share some more cards while I have the time. These get well cards were featured in issue 150 of Papercraft Inspirations. 

 This shaker card features the gorgeous papers from the Butterfly Dreams Card Compendium from Docrafts. 

 This umbrella was made using a die-cut circle cut in half and shaped. 

 The sentiment die on this card is from Marianne Collectables. 

 This cute umbrella is from the Come Rain or Shine die from Memory Box.

The dies for these cards were from a wonderful place called Crafts U Love. They have an extensive selection of everything crafty, check them out here.

Latest Demo Makes

Hi crafty friends, I hope you had a lovely weekend? I’m enjoying a lie in his morning as I had Docrafts demos all over the weekend at The Range in Portsmouth and Southampton. I thought I would share some makes from the weekend, all made with the popular new Country Life range from Docrafts.

 This range has lots of pretty decoupage and cute embellishments, I love this bee charm!

 This cute chicken house was made with a Bare Basics Heart Nesting Box turned upside down with some raffia tucked around the sides to add to the rustic look.

A Fab New Cut & Emboss Folder

Hi crafty friends, I hope your week is going well. Time seems to be rushing by this week, I’ve got plenty left to do but thought I would show you one on my favourite new Docrafts products first…. 

 This quick and easy card was made with the new XCut Heart Frame Cut & Emboss Folder. There’s a whole range of these folders which cut and emboss at the same time, so clever! All you need to do is simply run the folder once through your die cutting machine, it’s that simple. 

 For this card I’ve  added the cut out hearts between two layers of acetate to create a simple shaker card. These folders are ideal if you need to make a set of cards or invitations and there are six fabulous designs to choose from.

While I’m here I would also like to share a preview of a card from my first commission for Quick Cards Made Easy… 


I have a set of cards that are in Issue 150 which is available now in newsagents and supermarkets and comes with a lovely butterfly die. You can see a little more of the latest magazine here.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Finally back to work!

  Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all well. The last couple of weeks have been crazy here. We have moved house and I now have a lovely new office just up the road!  

 It took quite a while to sort out all my crafty stash but finally I have a spacious craft area. Hopefully I can start sorting out some craft classes soon.

After taking over a week off work I had to get back into the swing of it as I had a Docrafts demonstration at The Range in Gosport on Saturday. 

 I made this with the cute new XCut Mini Dies mixed with Country Life papers. 

 This is a box covered in Deco Patch paper, a cute Anita’s topper and a Mini Die flower. 

 I love this gorgeous layered decoupage from the Country Life range. Right, I need to get some serious crafting done this week!

Have a great day!

WOW! & Altenew Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, I hope you’re all well. I’m very excited to be taking part in my first ever blog hop today, it’s a collaboration between WOW! Embossing Powders and Altenew.

My make features the Beautiful Day Clear Stamp Set from Altenew. 

 I’ve used WOW! Primary Ebony for the sentiment which is a lovely, deep black. I ran double sided tape down the left-hand side and sprinkled Primary Embony on top before melting with a heat gun. 

 For the flowers I stamped on white vellum and then used WOW! Opaque White on top. I coloured the underside of the flowers and leaves with ProMarkers to achieve the subtle colour. 

 The embellishments are simply dots of PVA glue covered with WOW! Primary Ebony and Pistachio Embossing Glitter and melted with a heat tool.

Here are links to everyone else involved in the blog hop, if you leave a comment by the 28th February you have the chance of winning 2 $30 WOW and 2 $30 Altenew gift certificates.
