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.

Happy Birthday!!

Good morning. It's very wet here today!! Supposed to clear up later - but certainly feels like Autumn is kicking in!! Just a quick post today - a card made for my niece Amy who turned 21 last week!
I started with an 8x8 white card blank - and decided that this beautiful image from Crafter's Companion's Camden Town CD would be just the thing!! The large image is from the decoupage section, while the two smaller ones are the Create Companion. The tag is the Tag companion - much reduced in size!!

The matching papers are also from the CD. As always, I used Die'sire I" Alphabet and Number dies for the name and age!! A little glitter glue on the roses added some sparkle. And I finished off with ribbon, buttons and pearls from my stash!!

Back soon

  1. A really lovely card. The colour combination is very pretty and the way you have used the same image in different sizes is very clever. Sally D.x.
