Girly Christmas!

Hi everyone! How’s things? Alls well I hope. I’m not sure where this year has gone but I must admit I’m looking forward to some time off! Things in Krafti HQ have been manic as usual but I can’t complain because I love it! It was that time again this week…a new challenge over at Crafty Bloggers Network. This months sponsor is Milk and Coffee. We have been lucky enough to work with some uber cute digis this month, the theme being “girly”. Here’s my first inspiration card this month…

Oh so cute!! I kept this little madam quite simple and coloured her with pastel Promarkers and set her in a silver shaker card with Docrafts spots and stripes pastel paper.

I finished the card with paper flowers, a sliver button and gems and a little wrap of pink ribbon, that’s all she needs. Maybe one for the step daughter? Come and join the fun over at Crafty Bloggers Network

Happy crafting all!

A bit of exciting crafty news!

Hello everyone, I’ve missed you! Soooooo sorry I’ve not been blogging much recently, I’ve been very busy crafting but unfortunately I can’t share my makes with you yet! Anyway, I have a little bit of exciting news which I’ve had to keep to myself for weeks…..until today!

I’m sure lots of you are aware of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazines Cardmaker of The Year Competition and no doubt a lot of you entered this year. Well I’m very pleased to announce that I came 1st in the docrafts category with the following card…

I made a couple of cards for this category and I only put this card in with them at the last minute as I made it a while ago. I’m so glad I did though as I ended up with £200 worth of docrafts goodies!

As you all know I’m a huge fan of docrafts products and was chuffed to bits to add to my stash!

I would like to congratulate Shelagh Metselaar on winning the overall title and all the other winners for making such wonderful cards. If you would like to check them out they can be found over at Cardmaking and Papercraft

Well done everyone!

Hi crafty friends! I hope you’ve all had a productive weekend. Things are pretty hectic at Krafti HQ but I’ve managed to make another inspiration card for Crafty Bloggers Network…

This gorgeous image is from this months sponsor, Just Some Lines. I’ve kept the image really simple and just coloured it with pencils. The rest of the colours are quite traditional which I rarely do, but hey, it’s nice to have a change!

Good morning everyone! Apologies for being quiet recently, I’ve been working on a few bits for a magazine so unfortunately I can’t share those with you yet.

My first commission for Creativity Magazine!

Good morning crafty friends, I hope alls well with you. Things have been very busy in Krafti HQ, it’s been a very busy weekend doing DT work but I managed to pop out and get a copy of the new Creativity Magazine so I could check out my makes! I’ve been dying to share these makes with you way back since August but I’ve had to be patient! Finally here they are…….

This card was for a feature for Christmas cards for different members of the family and I used the glorious Art Deco range to make a card for a mum. The initial shape gave me some real brain-ache but after a few practice runs it came together in the end! It was so lovely to see it professionally photographed…

This second card was for the Take a Template feature and uses more traditional Christmas colours and lots of the Little Red Robin range.

I inked and distressed lots of layers for this card and kept the template as it is was as it was great and ideal for showcasing the gorgeous Lucy Cromwell imagery.

I was over the moon to be asked to make these cards and I’m very pleased to say I had another commission for Issue 43……but you will have until January to see that!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

More spookiness over at Crafty Bloggers Network

Good morning crafty friends! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous crafty weekend. It’s been pretty blowy here on the Isle of Wight so I spent a lot of the weekend crafting away, bliss!

I made my second inspiration project for Crafty Bloggers Network, a made a door sign all ready for Halloween….

This cute image is a digi stamp from our sponsor this month, Rick St Dennis, it’s so cute! I’ve used a selection of downloaded papers from Docrafts Creativity Club for the circles around the outside, I’m just loving those cheeky pumpkins!

I used that Poundland scarf again to make a bow and a handle at the top, all ready to attach to my front door on Thursday!

If you would like to see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to then pop over to Crafty Bloggers Network . There’s still time to join in the fun!

A little Embossalicious!

Good morning my crafty friends! I hope you all had a fabulous crafty weekend. I must admit that I had a craft free weekend. After a stressful week I just needed some time with Hoobie and the dogs and to chill out, ready for lots of crafty work ahead. I do have some makes to share with you that I made a little while ago for Crafters Companion….

I’ve used the new range of Embossalicious folders for these makes which are fabulous!

These intricate folders are wonderful when distressed and really add lots of dimension to projects.

Due to other commitments I am no longer part of the Die’sire Design Team but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and loved all their fabulous products.

I hope Monday isn’t too painful for you all!

Be back soon!

I’m very proud and excited to say I’m in the Docrafts Creativity Club Design Team!!!

Hello everyone! After the news that I had become a Docrafts demonstrator last week I had yet even more amazing news…..my application for the Creativity Club Design Team had been successful!

When I received Jill’s email I did some crazy Irish jig and then promptly burst into tears so you can probably tell I was really chuffed!! I am absolutely over the moon to be part of this amazing team and I can’t wait to get started. I’m such a huge fan of Docrafts products and I can’t wait to help inspire others.

Anyway, while I’m here I will share some makes that I made at my Docrafts Demonstration on Sunday…..

This is made mainly using the 12 Days of Christmas range and I just love the die-cut figures. I managed to get some of my ladies using the new XCut Xpress and they were impressed with it.

This was my favourite make from the day, I love this cute little stamp and this colour palette would be ideal for a baby’s first Christmas card.

This is a mixture of 12 Days of Christmas and Spots and Stripes Jewel. I love the way that all these new ranges mix so well together.

I can’t wait to see Novembers range of products, not long now!

Take care all,

My Inspiration makes in print

Good evening all, it’s wine o’clock here on the sunny Isle of Wight. Finally my preparations for tomorrow’s demo are finished, I’ve had my nails done and Hoobie’s cooking the dinner so I thought I would share this with you. This is my first proper commissioned piece for a magazine and I’m really chuffed with the end result!

It seems ages ago that I made these, I think it was August which isn’t the greatest time to get festive!

These are all featured in Inspiration magazine, Issue 3 from Crafters Companion.

It’s so lovely to see them in print when they’re professionally photographed! I have absolutely loved my time at Crafters Companion as part of their Die’sire design team but due to other commitments I’ve had to step down. I would like to thank Sharon, Leann and the rest of the team for the fabulous opportunity……Watch this space 🙂

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
