Hi everyone! It’s been a while since my last blog post, as I’ve been so busy with work and childcare I’ve barely found time to craft, let alone blog! However, the new release from Time for Tea Designs is out today so I can finally start showing off some of the cards I’ve been makingContinue reading “Tree of Life shaker card”

A mice day to celebrate

Guys, my baby nephew just turned 13. 13!! I can’t believe it. But, it did give me an opportunity to use the new Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set from My Favorite Things, which I’ve been dying to do!

Back to basics with emboss resist

I recently found that I had so many crafty ideas and projects I wanted to try, and lots of lovely new products to play with, that my mind was a bit of a scrambled mess and I didn’t know where to start! I was craving something simple, and so I decided to do some niceContinue reading “Back to basics with emboss resist”

Con-grad-ulations

As soon as my friend Rebecca told me she was going to apply to retrain as a nurse, I knew she’d ace it. She’s super caring and smart and of course she was offered a place everywhere she interviewed! So, obviously I had a card already made and waiting to go when she was offeredContinue reading “Con-grad-ulations”

Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards

I was recently lucky enough to win the new Hearts & Happiness collection by Polkadoodles. I knew as soon as I saw the two adorable little stamp sets included that I wanted to make some clean and simple Valentine’s cards with them. For the first card, I cut a slimline panel, and made a pinkContinue reading “Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards”

Happy Valentine’s Day

I’d already made a card for my husband but it was a bit… pink. So, when my new Mama Elephant stamps arrived, I had an idea for a more masculine card (but still cute) card using the Wish Upon A Star set. I started by figuring out my scene and placing the stamps where IContinue reading “Happy Valentine’s Day”
