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.

For a friend!

Every year I make my some of my closest friends a matching gift set for their birthday. This is one of the one's from this year - a mug mat, a framed picture and a card.
The image is from a lovely little shop I found on Etsy called Graphicals.They have loads of gorgeous vintage images, which can be used in items you sell as well as for personal use. 
For the mug mat, I printed the image onto printable cotton. It's the first time I have tried this - and I really love the effect. It looks totally different to using an iron on transfer - and goes through the sewing machine with no issue. All the other fabrics are from my stash - and I edged it all with bias binding.
I used the same image in a shop bought frame - with a quote I found on the Internet.
And the card is 6x6 with a combination of coloured card from my stash, and papers from Craftwork cards Vintage Flora paper postcards set. 

I would like to enter this into
