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.

Kimono Sneak Peek!!

Morning!! It's that time again - sneak peeks are starting today for a fabulous new range from Crafter's Companion. It's called Kimono - and consists of a CD, stamps, embossing folders and dies.
So, my first sneak peek is an S Fold Card. I printed the yellow dotty paper from the Coordinating Paper section of the CD onto Sheena Stamping Card, with another blue paper on the back. I scored the card in half, and then one of the halves I scored in half again to make the S Fold. The image is Card Companion 1, teamed up with one of the Design Set papers, and a bow from the Embellishment Section.
On the inside of the card, I used a fan and "Epoxy' circle from the Embellishment section, along with a stamped sentiment from the 'Lotus Flower' stamp sheet. I edged the layers with Shaded Lilac and Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

Sara and Fiona will be on Create and Craft from Monday with the 4-day deal - be sure to tune in to see all the great samples from the teams!!
