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.

A sad post

A very good friend's Mum passed away just recently!! Her Mum was also a customer of mine, and showed her appreciation once by writing me a lovely letter which I still have. So, making a sympathy card was a very sad project to work on.
I used Centura Pearl Hint of Silver as the base, and cut into the edge with Crafter's Companion Die'sire On the Edge Doily Lattice die. I used Die'sire Essentials Circle and Scallped circles to create a base for the Classiques Only Words "Thinking of You" sentiment. The black strip and circle were embossed with Embosslicious A4 Argylle folder, and the white strip with 8x8 Elegant Orchid folder. I also embossed the black piece inside the card. 
And to finish I used a combination of satin and organza ribbons, and black pearls.

There's not really much else to say!
