About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting over 10 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 mixed media on canvases, and altering items like boxes and frames. I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

A Little Baking!!

Evening! Thought I would share with you the card I made for my niece's birthday. She loves baking, so this Baking Shelf image from Just Inklined - coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens - was perfect for her. She also loves purple - hence the colour scheme.
The colours I have used are as follows:
Shelf- EB6, 7; Wooden Spoons - GB8, 10; Packets - EB1, 2; Metal - IG3, 5, 7; Purple Handles and Pot Label - LV2, HB3; Packet Labels - HB2; Handles and Vanilla Bottle - LY2, 3. 

It doesn't really show up on the picture, but the base card has a really lovely pearlescent sheen to it. The yellow and purple card is from my stash, as is the ribbon and the button. 

The letters and numbers are Crafter's Companion Die'sire 1" Alphabet and Numbers.

I would like to enter this into:
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes with a Twist - Use some Purple
Get Creative Challenges - #28 Birthday

Back soon,

Camouflage Swing!!

Morning - a quick card to share with you today. This one was made with an old Kanban image - Birthday Swing! 
It came in a pack with the camouflage card - and the cloud card came from my local market. The number and letters are cut with Die'sire Contemporary Alphabet!

Like I said - just a quick one today!

Scruffy Little Kitten

I love some of the cute images from Scruffy Little Kitten - just right for those young girls who are just a little too old for all the real cutesy images. I used this lovely one for my friend's daughter's 11th birthday card.
I used papers and a topper companion from the CD - teamed with coffee coloured card card and some pink Bazzill. The little butterfly is Bebunni Butterfly die, and the letters and numbers are cut with Die'sire 1" Contemporary Alphabet and Numbers.

A little sparkle from glitter glue on the the toadstool and flower, along with a few pearls, finished the card off.

Take care,
