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.

Good morning - another Halcyon Day!!

It's Sunday morning, and after a lovely breakfast in bed, I am all set for a lovely day. The sun is shining - and Halcyon Days is back on Create and Craft at 11am with Dawn Wheeler. This card was shown yesterday by Sara, so thought I ought to share it with you. I have to be honest and admit that I did not originally intend to make an offset gatefold. I wasn't concentrating properly and made my first score line on on my Ultimate at the Tri fold line instead of the Gatefold line. Rather than wasting the card, I decided to go with it.
I love the rich colours of this topper from the card kit. I used the matching cardstock to cover the front and inside of the card. I used the border strips on the inside along with some coloured card embossed with the Gothic Script folder.
With the topper itself, I split up the image from the two frames, added some coloured card behind each frame, and offset them. I finished off with some ribbon, pearls and paper flowers. 

Be sure to tune in to Create and Craft at 11am to see Dawn - remember that this card kit is exclusive to Create and Craft so be sure to get yours.

I have two more samples to blog - so will be back later on to share some more.

And thanks to my new follower on Pinterest. I'm still getting used to it - so it's great to see people beginning to be interested.
