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.

Thank you!!

Good morning!! Has been a good one so far for me!! Had a great parkrun this morning - despite the absolutely torrential rain - with my 5th fastest time so far - and the best I've run since the beginning of May!! Have to say that yesterday's SUP fitness class was cancelled and at the time I was disappointed - but maybe all that saved energy was a bonus today!!

Anyway, it's been well over a week since I blogged - but I can assure you I will be making up for it in the next couple of weeks, as sneak peeks of what I have been working on will be starting tomorrow!! It's been full on making samples - alongside fitting in a few days out with my lovely nieces!!

But before all of that starts, I thought I would share with you a few 'Thank You' cards I made for the end of the summer term. 
I used Crafter's Companion Kraft card to layer onto what used to be called a 'small tall' card (roughly 8cm x 20cm) by Craft Tonic. I bought loads of them when I first started crafting - don't think you can get them anymore. But I still have a stash and they were perfect for this. I then used paper from Kanban's Well Wishes pad to go with the matching Heart topper, and matted and layered this with Kraft card, inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. A few pearls and a piece of twine finished it all off. 
The other two were completed in a similar way - just different toppers and sentiments.

I would like to enter this into:

Be back soon!!
