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.

Here's one I made earlier!!

Have had a 'busy' couple of days. I use the term loosely, as yesterday was mostly spent with family - and then I indulged myself in a bit of sewing!! And today I have been to Pickwell Farm for a Craft Workshop!! 

But because I haven't blogged for a few days I thought I should do something! This is a card I made quite a while ago, but never got around to blogging. So here it is. I made this birthday card for my niece Amy.  
The topper is by Kanban from their Steampunk Range. I love the teal and brown colour combination - and used that for the rest of the card. I used two pieces of co-ordinating cardstock from the Steampunk set - one provided the large floral mat, and the other - the smaller striped mat. All of this was placed onto brown Bazzill, before matting on the A5 Kraft base. 
The finishing touches include a border strip from the Kanban set, pearls, ribbon and silk flowers from my stash. The letters were glazed with Glossy accents.

So - just a quick post today. Will blog about the stuff I did today - and have realised I still have three cards from the last workshop I still haven't shared!! Need to get the camera out and take a few piccies then we'll be back in business.

Back soon!!
