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.

Sugar and Spice - Definitely Nice!!

Well - had a day off from blogging yesterday, but am back today with something new!! Launching on Monday on Create and Craft is a new CD to go with the recently released Sugar and Spice Embossing folders. There are also a 6 new Quilling dies, and 3 new Classiques flower dies.
I made the 8x8 card base using CC Black Matt card. The image in the corner and the sentiment are from one of the Card Companions on the new CD, as are all the gorgeous papers. 

I embossed Centura Pearl Hint of Silver with the A4 Floral Trellis and 8x8 Elegant Orchid folders to use for matting and layering with the papers and black card.

For the bunch of flowers, I used two of the new Quilling Dies - Blossom and Petals to make the large flowers - and sprayed them with Pearl Diamond Spray and Sparkle. The smaller flowers in the background are cut with two of the Classiques Flower dies - Forget Me Not and Lace Bloom. The little black leaf swirls are also from the Lace Bloom - and the ones by the ribbon are from Forget Me Not.

Keep an eye out for all the great inspiration from the Design Team on FB and on their blogs.

Take care,
