A Touch of Spring

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all had a good week so far. Mine has been a little frustrating which often happens in this crazy industry, but hey, I’m not going to let it get me down, there are plenty of other opportunities out there!

So, before I disappear to my office I wanted to share some shaped cards that featured in a magazine back in December….


These cards were great fun to make, I used the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane collection. I love the beautiful colours and subtle touch of sparkle.


These would be perfect for Mother’s Day. The template and instructions are in Issue 160 of Quick Cards Made Easy should you wish to have a go.

Onwards and upwards!

Valentine’s Take-away

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all well. It’s been a hectic few days in Krafti world and I thought I would share a recent magazine make before I crack on today!

This was featured in the February issue of Papercraft Inspirations….


I loved making this noodle box, it’s stuffed full of paper fortune cookies. Each cookie has a romantic message inside.


The double sided papers and vellum used are from the Crate Paper Kiss Kiss range, available from Crafts U Love.


Should you wish to make one of these for your loved one then full instructions and templates can be found in issue 161 of Papercraft Inspirations.

Have a great day,

Recent Demo Makes

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’ve had a productive week. I haven’t got any docrafts demonstrations this weekend so I’m enjoying an extra cuppa in bed and some pug cuddles!

I have some cards to share that I made at my demo at The Range in Southampton last weekend….


This card is a mix of the XCut Family Tree Die with papers and sentiment from  the Tales From Willson Wood range.


This cute card was made with the XCut Butterfly Frame Cut & Emboss Folder. The cute bunny decoupage is part of the cover gift from January’s Creativity magazine.


Finally, I used the XCut Cottage Window Cut & Emboss Folder mixed with a little bit of my favourite girl Gorjuss.

Pop to your latest docrafts stockist to see all the latest ranges.

Enjoy your weekend,

Love You WOW!

Hello crafty friends, I hope all is well in your crafty worlds! It’s always fun taking part in a blog hop and especially a WOW! one as the products are so fabulous!

There’s nothing better than Mr Postman turning up with a huge parcel of WOW! goodies. The latest products, including Sparkles are amazing!

For the blog hop I’ve created this simple card…..


I kept everything simple to show off the sparkle and shine of the latest glitters and powders. It’s difficult to see the true sparkle in a photograph but they really are dazzling! The new products can be found on the WOW! Website


The border was created with Jade Sparkles and the large hearts are from the Hearts and Twine Stamp Set with Sweet Cheeks powder (what a brilliant name). The smaller heart is embossed with Emerald City glitter…being a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz this is possibly the best named powder ever!


The tiny hearts are from the J’adore Stamp and the sentiment is from the Big Words Stamp Set. It’s embossed with Oasis regular powder. To find your local stockist have a look here.

Getting crafty over the weekend 

Good morning crafty friends, I hope alls well in your worlds and you all had a great weekend. I’ve had a very busy few days in Krafti world, I had an exciting meeting on Friday (more news to follow soon) and then had two docrafts demonstrations in Gosport and Southampton.


I was inspired by the snowy weather to create this Gorjuss shaker card. She looks all wrapped up and cosy in the snow.


This card is a mix of the XCut Lace Frame Large Die, Anita’s Foiled Topper and Bare Basics flowers.


This was my favourite make of the weekend. I mixed various XCut Die sets and added some cute punched flowers to create this Valentine’s card.

All these products are available at your local docrafts stockist.

Have a great day,

This clever card comes in white, Kraft and black and is covered in tiny laser cut holes. It’s perfect for sewing into and creating unusual projects.


I had fun experimenting with different uses for all the holes, as you can see it’s very versatile!

Festive Greetings

Hi crafty friends, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas so far. I’m loving having a relax after a very busy year. I’m just enjoying another cuppa in bed with madam Lottie snoring away next to me.

So, I forgot I still had some festive makes to share that were in the December issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine.


These cards were made with papers designed by designer Matilda who works for the magazine.


I mixed them with XCut Mini Dies and wooden sentiments from docrafts.


Cute rounded corners, pink baker’s twine and white bells compliment the modern look of the papers.

I promise these are my final Christmas projects to share, I hope you like them.

Enjoy another relaxing day,

Fast Festive Make

Good morning crafty friends, I hope all is well. Christmas is fast approaching and I still have a ton of work to do before the big day, then I finally get two weeks off, yay!!

I have a quick and easy card to share with you today that’s perfect if you want to make your cards but time is short. All the products used to make it are from Craft Consortium.


I started by covering the front of a 5 x 7″ card blank with Silver Baubles Decoupage paper then adding Adhesive Pearl and Rhinestone Flowers from The Wedding Collection in the corners.


I covered a piece of white card with Blue Snowflakes Decoupage Paper and  die-cut a square through it. I drew a square on the background to match up with the square aperture then added a layer of vellum then three fussy cut baubles.


I wrapped Duck Satin Ribbon from The Wedding Collection under the aperture and  added a large bow with another Rhinestone Flower in the centre. I then attached the card to the card front using foam pads. A small sentiment and Adhesive Pearls from The Wedding Collection add the final finishing touch.

To see all of the Decoupage Papers and The Wedding Collection pop over to Craft Consortium.

Have a great day!

A Sweet Shaker

Hello crafty friends, I hope you’re all well. So sorry I’ve not been on here for a while, it’s been a very busy few weeks.

Today I have a cute shaker card to share with you that’s in the latest issue of Creativity magazine.


The main feature of this card is the XCut Flower Fairies Cut & Emboss Folder from docrafts.


I’ve cut the centre circle out and added acetate behind it to create the shaker element and added gorgeous pink glitter.


Tiny punched flowers with  pearl gems and an embossed sentiment complete the card.

You can find full instructions on how to make this card in Creativity issue 77, available now.

Have a great day,
