About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Inspirational Foiling

Morning! Did you catch the 7am show with Fiona demonstrating the fabulous foils. Here's another of my creations - a little wall hanging. I used elements from the Opulent Flourishes pack of transfers with Rose Gold Foil. 
The base is cream mountboard - left over from Sheena's Paint Fusion collection, and I used a bit of Pebeo King Gold gilding wax on the edges.

Fiona has one more show today at 11am - tune in for more inspiration from the team.

Foiled wedding sentiments

More foil samples today!. This is a set of  4x4 wedding cards made using sentiments from the Opulent Flourishes transfer set. 
Each one uses gold foil onto the transfer.

And I matted onto gold glitter card from the Luxury Card pack.

A few little gems just finishes it off.
Don't forget to tune in tomorrow for the shows.

Opulent foiling!!

Morning. Have another Foil Transfer sample to share with you today. Is quite the opposite style to the card from yesterday, as it is busy and bright.


All the transfers are from the Delicate Details pack.  The border is from one of the sheets, where I cut out all the elements in the middle to keep it square. The centre square is cut from part of the larger full pattern sheet, and Thinking You is from the sentiment sheet.

I used the Raspberry Pink foil on the satin gold card from the Luxury Card pack, and the gold foil on the pink card. I used more of each card for the base and for matting and layering. A few little gems in the corners - and it's done.

Fantastic Foils

Morning!! Today I have a sneak peek of the gorgeous new foils and transfers that will byeon Hochanda on Tuesday.

There are several different packs to choose from, each containing four 6"x6" transfer sheets. One is a large design covering the whole sheet, one is sentiments and the other two are elements and embellishments.


I love the way they can be used on CAS cards - not normally my style, but I really love the effect. The sentiment and embellishments are from the Delicate Details pack, used with the Royal Purple Foil.

February Scrapbooking

Afternoon!! I managed to find time today to do my February scrapbook page, following the instructions from the wonderful Jen Fisher aka The Scrapbook Lady. 

But I have to admit, that I only sort of followed her instructions as I turned the layout on its side - and used different colours!!


Instead of the pink heart paper from the 12x12 Little Angel pad, I used the blue dots. And I then chose some of the red papers from the 5x5 Together Forever pad - instead of the pink. I felt it all went better with the photo of my OH and out dog.

The dies are all Diamond Press dies, and came as part of the February scrapbooking bundle.

It's nearly gone!!

Not much left of the Weekday Wonder - so just popped on to share another card with you. This one is a centre stepper card, made using Centura Pearl Fresh Whtie double sided card. The papers are from the 6x6 pad, and I embossed more of the Centura Pearl with the Delicate Lace folder.


I also used lots of the lovely dies - Filigree Flourish, Classic Lily, Chic Butterfly and Weathered Window. The sentiment and banner are from the Cherished Moments stamp and die set. I finished it off with some pearl embellishments and Baker's Twine.

Exciting!!!

Just a couple pf hours to go before the launch of Sara's Shabby Chic Collection. This one is a little clutch bag, that could be used for a gift card or money! It's from the Ult Cards CD - I just didn't add the handle.

The base is embossed with the Rose Garden folder from the collection and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The papers are from the 6x6 pack, and I used the Antique Edge, Filigree Flourish and Aged Rose dies - with lots of distressed edges and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


I also used the papers on the inside - and added a Velcro fastener to keep the bag closed.
