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.

Quick Makes!!

A couple of quick makes - apologies for the bad photography - both cards have the exactly the same card for matting and layering even though it doesn't look like it!!


I've had these Flowersoft toppers for eons!!! They've just sat in my stash because, although I love the images, I don't own any Flowersoft so was unsure what to do with them. However, I decided to just have a go and do a couple of quick and simple makes.

I've used a Craft Tonic Small Tall card - don't think you can get them anymore, but I have a bit of a stash of them (surprise, surprise!!) and they are just the right size for these toppers. The dark rose pink and green cards are both from my stash - could be Bazzil or from a DCWV pad - not entirely sure - but anyway, I rounded the edge with a corner punch. I made a bit of an error with the green card on the right - I meant to do the decorative insert (edgabilities!!) down the side, but managed to turn the card on its side and it ended up on the bottom!! This meant I had to cut the topper down to fit.

The beautiful daisy ribbon is from my local craft shop. For the card on the right, I cut it down the middle, and attached it to the underneath of the topper. For the card on the left, I used a line of pearls down the centre of the ribbon.

I used Papermania glitter glue on all the flowery areas of both toppers, and glazed the glass of the lamp, and the roof of the bird house. And the greetings are from (I think) a Forever Friends greeting pack.

Nothing too fancy - but pretty effective nonetheless!!
