More Fun In The Sun

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? I cannot believe the weather is still so lovely, I hope you’re all enjoying it.

My summer docrafts demonstrations have started over the last couple of weeks so I thought I’d share some makes…….

I mixed the new Papermania stickers with this Santoro Gorjuss “The Bluebirds Proposal” stamp for this cute card.

I used the Papermania In Bloom” 12 x 12″ Paper Pad mixed with XCut Heart Nesting Dies and Palm Punches for this make.

Finally, I’ve created this large flower from cutting shapes from the Papermania Modern Deco 12 x 12″ Paper Pad and mixing with Anita’s Outline Stickers.

If you’d like come to one of the free docrafts demonstrations then you can find your nearest one here.

Enjoy the sun,

I wanted to share some recent makes from my latest batch of docrafts demonstrations….

These super-cute cards were made using the docrafts Enchanted Meadow 6 x 6″ Paper Pad. I love the sweet imagery.

Finally, these colourful elephants are from the Eastern Opulence 12 x 12″ Paper Pad.

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 docrafts.com

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.

A Bit More Gorjuss

Hello crafty friends, how are we all? I hope you’re all having a good week, mine seems to be whizzing by!

I had a docrafts demonstration at The Range on the Isle of Wight this weekend and I spotted a card on the front cover of their free inspiration magazine that I recognised….

I created this card using the Santoro Gorjuss Birds of a Feather Die Set and Santoro Gorjuss In The Garden Papers and embellishments. The roof and front of the shed was made using Craft Planet Extra Large Lollipop Sticks covered in paper.

I made this card during my demonstration and it proved popular. I mixed the Santoro Gorjuss In The Garden Collection with the XCut Bird Wreath Die for this make and punched out cute flowers using the XCut Medium Petal Palm Punch.

Have a productive day,

Two Gorjuss Girls

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? I hope you’re having a productive week. My week isn’t too manic which makes a change!

I wanted to share two cards today that I made at my docrafts demonstration at The Range in Portsmouth on Saturday featuring my favourite girl, Gorjuss…..

I’ve mixed Gorjuss imagery and papers with the XCut Floral Parenthesis Cut & Emboss Folder for this pretty card. The flowers and tag are die-cut using the XCut Flower Jar Small Die Set.

For a completely different look I used the Gorjuss Birds Of A Feather Die with Papermania Freshly Cut Flowers papers. I’ve also used the XCut Bird Wreath Die in the background.

Love Is On The Air

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’ve had a great week. I’m feeling a mixture of nerves and excitement today as I have very exciting news….I’m making my debut on Create and Craft tomorrow!

This day seems to be a long time coming as the whole process started way back in July last year. docrafts were looking for a replacement on the channel and we were asked to audition.

We were asked to produce a three minute audition video then the successful applicants went to Peterborough for a screen test. We also went to docrafts HQ for a meeting then finally, just before Christmas I got my first TV date through!

My first shows have a Valentines theme and feature lots of fabulous, dies, embossing folders and embellishments.

The shows are Saturday 13th January at 9am and 4pm and more details can be found over at Create and Craft.

I hope you can join me!

Weekend Demo Makes

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? Things are pretty manic this week in Krafti world, I’m going on an exciting trip tomorrow for a couple of days, I can’t say much about it at the moment but hopefully soon!

So, I had a very pleasant demonstration at The Range in Portsmouth over the weekend and wanted to share some cards I created…..

This winter birthday card features one of the Santoro Willow stamps mixed with Modern Lustre papers. I used the new XCut Leaf Cut & Emboss Punch to decorate the front.

For this super-quick make I used an XCut Mini Die and Modern Lustre adhesive letters.

I mixed Santoro Willow with the XCut Winter Forest Die for this aperture card.

Festive Fun

Good morning crafty friends, how are you all? I hope alls well in your crafty worlds. Things have been a little stressful here but hopefully things are turning a corner now.

I had a lovely demo at The Range on the Isle of Wight at the weekend and I made quite a few gifts which made a nice change from cards. I did manage a couple of cards though……


I can’t take credit for this clever sentiment as I found it in a recent copy of Creativity magazine. I mixed XCut Mini Dies with Papermania Modern Lustre papers and added a cute string of Papermania Love Santa lights across the top.


For this light-up card I used the XCut Winter Forest Cut & Emboss Folder which I cut out in Kraft card then painted with white and gold Artiste Acrylic Paint. I added a little “shelf” inside then popped a colour changing LED tea light inside.
