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 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:
